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:

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)

Top Ten Tuesdays: To all those with wanderlust

It’s Tuesday so you know what that means! This week The Broke and The Bookish has given us a sort of freebie. I love travelling though I haven’t done much of it so I like reading about books with great worlds and settings. So here’s the top ten books every aspiring traveller should read.

Love Fortunes and Other Disasters (Grimbaud, #1)Lost & Found (Lost & Found, #1)Ink (Paper Gods, #1)The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)

1. Love Fortunes and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karalius

The town of Grimauld just sounds amazing. If it was real, I would be a total tourist in it.

2. Lost & Found by Nicole Williams

Look, I hate farms because they’re in the middle of nowhere and I don’t think I could handle being alone. But this book, it really made me feel like I had to get into Willow Springs Ranch. Or at least into an American rural area. OR any rural area, it sounds really peaceful XD

3. Ink by Amanda Sun

Take me back to Japan! The culture, the clothing and the technology. I love heated toilet seats, ok.

4. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

The fey world sounds terrifyingly awesome. I love the images the book gives me of the courts and the world building is just so good.

Madly (Potion, #1)Amy & Roger's Epic DetourStarflight (Starflight, #1)Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)

5. Madly by Amy Alward

The thought of magic and technology existing together really makes me excited. I just imagine it like Disney world but real. The world of Madly sounds so fairytale like and I want to be in it.

6. Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

GUYS LET’S GO ON A ROADTRIP ACROSS AMERICA NOW!

7. Starflight by Melissa Landers

I don’t care that there is currently no other lifeforms recorded in space, let me be a space pirate please. I promise I won’t steal much (except maybe a ride… anyone got a spaceship handy?)

8.Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

You thought this wouldn’t be on the list. You were wrong. It will be on every list until I finally go to Paris XD

I am a sucker for good looking books| The Book Courtship Tag

book courtship

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! I hope you had a very romantic day with your significant others… or if you’re single like me you had a great day with your true loves whether it be books, Youtube… you name it XD

Parneet @ The Enchanted Book tagged me a month ago, but I felt this was the perfect time to do this tag. I mean courtship is dating and dating is romance 😉 If you want to find out more about the books, click on the covers!

Initial Attraction | A book you bought because of the cover

All Fall Down (Embassy Row, #1)

I’m such a colour hoe because I actually didn’t buy this book for the cover. I loved the shade of purple the inside of the hardcover was so I just got it XD

First Impressions | A book you bought because of the summary

Things We Know by Heart

The summary was really alluring. It was basically guaranteed to be a cute fluffy read!!

Sweet Talk | A book with great writing

The Host (The Host, #1)

The Host was so good! I have no idea why it is because it has the same writing as the Twilight series. Honestly, it’s not that Twilight was badly written it’s just the plot was stupid as hell. Thank god in The Host, that problem is gone.

First Date | A first book of the series which made you want to pick up the rest

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)

I remember reading the end and then getting to the BLOODY CLIFFHANGER AND HAD TO WAIT A YEAR BEFORE THE NEXT BOOK!! I had to know what was going to happen to Ruby and Liam.

Late Night Phone Calls | A book that kept you up all night

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)

IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT!! It’s definitely one of the cutest books out there.

Always on My Mind | A book you can’t stop thinking about

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3)

I read this for over a month and unlike Anna, I hated it so much. Like honestly, I love to rage to people about this book. I love Manon and Dorian’s POV but the rest of the book was slow as fuck.

Getting Physical | A book which feels nice

Fangirl

I was actually going to get this book just because of the way it felt. I had a whole post where I just fangirled about it’s matteness. I think it wouldn’t even matter if I hated a book. If the cover is good looking and it feels good, then it has to be mine XD

Meeting the Parents | A book you would recommend to your family and friends

Avalon High

Do you remember Avalon High? OMG it was the best. The movie though… yeah XD This was the first retelling kind of book I read and it was amazing at the time. I feel like it’s a good gateway book into all the other YA themes.

Thinking About the Future | A book you will re-read A LOT

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)

Time to show off the new covers! City of Bones will definitely be re-read in the next few weeks. Need to get back my Clace feels as Shadowhunters is currently killing it for me. They do have good Malec feels though!

Share the Love!

Ok, I’m pretty sure a lot of you have done this so if you haven’t and want to, feel free to do it. JUST DO IT 😀

TTT: Santa Better Have My Books

top ten tuesdays blue

3 days till Christmas! What better time to be writing up your wishlists to Santa aka this week’s TTT.

Dear Santa,

I’ve been a super good girl this year so please give me the following books. I’ve made your job super easy by linking to all the books I want.

1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

So I have all the other books except for this one and that just pains me.

2. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

All I can say is that it would look aesthetic on my shelf.

3. Storm by Amanda Sun

Storm (Paper Gods, #3)

I literally just can’t find this anywhere so I’m hoping that your workshop might have some.

4. The Amazing Book is Not on Fire by Dan Howell and Phil Lester

The Amazing Book is Not on Fire

Because I am a Phan.

5. Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep

Cold Burn of Magic (Black Blade #1)

It was a book I totally did not expect to like but did so I need it in physical copy.

6. Harry Potter: The Illustrated Version

Just look at that! It’s so pretty 😦

7. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl

I read Rainbow Rowell’s short story in My True Love Gave To Me and it was one of the best ones. So Fangirl is on my wishlist.

8. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)

For the feels… also the pink cover please, not the ugly weird one.

9. The Princess and The Pea by Lauren Child

The Princess and the Pea

This one is purely for childhood feels. It’s one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. The illustrations and the sets are amazing.

10. Next Year’s Books

No? Santa, you can’t give me this? Well, I can dream.

TTT: Characters You Didn’t Click With

top ten tuesdays blue

I’m finally getting back into a somewhat stable posting routine! So this week for Top Ten Tuesdays, it’s characters I didn’t click with… let’s just say I found 5. It’s surprising to see that even though I love some of these series, I have that one character that just doesn’t do it for me.
