5 Books About Disney Villains 

BookSummaryClub Blog 5 Books About Disney Villains 

Not to be biased, but watching a Disney film, you’ll find that the villain is more interesting than the hero. They may appear evil, but there’s usually a kind of mystery that hovers around them, which makes you want to know more and learn what’s behind the doors they’ve kept closed. 

Maybe if they’re lucky, they find someone who connects with them in a way that they’ve never experienced with others, someone who matches their energy, someone who keeps the beast in them locked in. Even if they’re evil, there’s usually someone who loves them for who they are.

If you love Disney Villains books, below we’ve made a compilation of some of the best Disney Villain books.

If you love Jafar, then this book, Desperate Measures by Katee Robert, will be a good read for you. This book follows the story of Jasmine, who wants more than anything to live a free life where she’s not in her gilded prison. Having lived a sheltered life all her life, she just wants to be free.

However, Jafar overthrows her father and decides to take her away too. This begins a dark, steamy, and kinky relationship between them; you could refer to it as the Stockholm Syndrome at play.

If you love the Queen of Hearts, you should grab a copy of this book, The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. This book Prince Cardan somehow follows the story of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, from the perspective of the dramatics, the mood swings, the sadism…

Cardan is always trying to frustrate Jude’s life and make it miserable in the book. The only difference between Alice and Jude is that Jude is brave enough to go against the Fae even if it means that he becomes worse than them. 

This book isn’t your cliche romance book, though there are some elements of romance in its overall series. The Cruel Prince explores the fantastic tale of intelligence, fae, court, intrigue, and bloodshed. It’s worth adding to your to-read list.

But she doesn’t realize that there’s more to their relationship; something bigger than them both binds them together. This book is a good read because it’s different from other types of Disney Villain books.
