Top Ten Tuesday: Poor unfortunate souls

Oh god, I have back to back Top Ten Tuesdays where is that consistent posting I promised weeks ago??

So this week on TTT it’s freebie week! As usual, I had no idea what to do but after scrolling through past TTT topics I found “Most Unfortunate Character Names” and it just clicked.

1. Chaol Westfall | Throne of Glass

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Because this:

2. Mare Barrow | Red Queen

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)Mare literally means a female horse… is it meant to be symbolic or something because I got none of that.

4.  America Singer | The Selection

The Selection (The Selection, #1)She lives in America and she’s a singer!!! Well, she lives in what used to be America.

5. Renesmee Cullen | Twilight Saga

Twilight (Twilight, #1)Please never mashup names like this. Restrain yourselves.

6. Peeta Mellark | The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)Honestly, who doesn’t think this name is just ugly? I love Peeta, it’s just his name is horrible.

7. Valek | The Study Series

Poison Study (Study, #1)His name really made me want to say it in a Russian accent. You know with the throaty a’s.

8. Casimir | Ruined

Ruined (Ruined, #1)

I have no idea how to say this… cashmere without the h?

9. Cricket Bell | Lola and the Boy Next Door

Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss #2)

How can you not think about cricket chirps with a name like that?


So basically every fantasy series! Seriously though, what is it with fantasy and really weird names?

Top Ten Tuesday | Books I picked up on a whim

Another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish! Honestly, I thought I read a lot of books on a whim. It just depends on how I’m feeling, what I feel like reading… I struggle with reading books when they’re popular! Surprisingly though, I found it really hard to come up with a list for this week because a lot of my recent reads I’ve found through blogs and Goodreads. I just think it’s just safer to get people’s thoughts before reading!

1. Dorothy Must Die | Danielle Paige

Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die, #1) My most recent read was on a whim! Wow that coincidence XD I’m pretty sure I got it because it was free on iBookstore.

2. Ink | Amanda Sun

Ink (Paper Gods, #1) THE COVER!!!!

3. Poison Study | Maria V. Snyder

Poison Study (Study, #1) I’d read Snyder’s Inside Out and Touch of Power but Poison Study was just a book I just suddenly picked up. It was awesome,

4. Sweet Evil | Wendy Higgins

Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)This was a holiday whim. My family and I were driving down to Melbourne and that’s like an 8 hour trip so I had to get some books. Got so obsessed with Kaidan afterwards XD

5. Crave | Melissa Darnell

Crave (The Clann, #1)Read it along with Sweet Evil. It was a really long trip.

6. Firstlife | Gena Showalter

Firstlife (Everlife, #1)Firstlife was part of the only book haul I’ve ever done. I literally just grabbed 6 books and bought them.

7. The Darkest Minds | Alexandra Bracken

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)Ok, look it was super cheap in Big W and it was the end of 2014 so I had to buy it. Thank god I did because it was amazing, made a great reading start for 2015!

8. Rebel Wing | Tracy Banghart

Rebel Wing (Rebel Wing #1) Way back when I was just starting out on Netgalley, I requested Rebel Wing because of its cover.

9. Minders | Michele Jaffe

MindersI remember finding this in my local library and just borrowed it because it was new. Yes, I know I am a sucker for new books especially in libraries.

10. Black City | Elizabeth Richards Black City (Black City, #1)

I have no idea how or where I found Black City. I really should finish the series soon.

So have you picked up any books on a whim? Did you love them or hate them?

TTT: Books I Really Should Fangirl More About

ttt

All the books I’ve read in the past week have been sadly mediocre so it’s time to fangirl about books I love. There’s actually quite a lot of books that I really should talk about more to you!

Starflight (Starflight, #1)Cold Burn of Magic (Black Blade, #1)Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths, #1)Avalon High

1. Starflight | Melissa Landers

Ok, just the whole setting is great but plus the characters… it’s perfect. Really should write up a review for this one!

2. Cold Burn of Magic | Jennifer Estep

One word: Devon. He really stands out from all the bad boys of YA because he isn’t one. Also, Lila is badass.

3. Ten Tiny Breaths | K.A. Tucker

THE ENDING KILLED ME. I haven’t talked about this book for ages. I’ve re-read it a couple of times and it just gets better with every re-read.

4. Avalon High and all the Meg Cabot books | Meg Cabot

Avalon High and the Mediator series were my personal favourites. OMG AND AIRHEAD! Airhead was so terrifying to me as a kid, I mean brain transplants and evil corporations… freaked the crap out of my pure, innocent mind XD

5. Sweet Evil | Wendy Higgins

I had a such an obsession with this book that I went searching out for Kai’s POV and the author has a couple on her page. Totally binge read all of them.

Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)Hex Hall (Hex Hall, #1)The Initiation (The Secret Circle, #1)The Ugly Stepsister (Unfinished Fairy Tales, #1)

6. Hex Hall | Rachel Hawkins

Magic with sass. What’s not to love?

7. The Secret Circle | L.J Smith

I read The Vampire Diaries before this one and I was kind of meh about it but The Secret Circle is so much better. It had a more interesting plot, less love triangle more paranormal.

8. The Ugly Stepsister | Aya Ling

Ok, I fangirl about this one daily but it’s been a while since I talked about it here 😀

Lost & Found (Lost & Found, #1)Poison Study (Study, #1)

9. Lost and Found | Nicole Williams

OK BUT JESSE STOP BEING SO ADORABLE MY HEART.

10. Poison Study | Maria V. Snyder

The best everything, let’s be real.

There’s my TTT for this week. Really need to fangirl more about these 10 books, I have just reignited my love for them XD
