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.

3. Maven | Red Queen

What??? Where is the author getting these from?

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?

High School Musical Book Tag | WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!

~WE’RE SOOOARING, FLYYYING. THERE’S NOT A STAR IN HEAVEN THAT WE CAN’T REACH~

Recently, I got re-obssessed with High School Musical and I had to talk about it here! I was thinking about making this tag but it turns out it’s already out there. I found it over at Addlepates and Book Nerds, go check it out! Anyways, I apologise for the overload of gifs in this post but I couldn’t help myself XD

The Start of Something New | A new favourite 

The Summer of Chasing MermaidsOk this was meant to be a new favourite genre/author/series but I couldn’t resist. I wrote up a review for it recently and remembered how much I loved it. Definitely on my favourite list although is it new? I read it in February, it’ll do XD

What I’ve Been Looking For | A book that has everything you wanted

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)Nothing can beat Percy Jackson and the Olympians for me. It’s got humour, it’s got action, it’s got the ships, it’s honestly got everything.

Fabulous | The biggest diva

I can’t think of any divas. Got any suggestions?

Status Quo | A stereotype defying character

Rebel Wing (Rebel Wing #1)Aris from the Rebel Wing series is so badass. Not only does she go “Screw your men only military rules, I want to fly a plane”, she goes and does it and gets military honours.

Boys Are Back | Best bromance

OF COURSE THIS WOULD BE JACE AND ALEC even though the TV show says differently, DON’T PLAY WITH MY FEELINGS SHOW! If they made Shadowhunters a musical, I think it could be so much better, just throwing out a suggestion!

What Time Is It? | Best summer read

Aimee and the Heartthrob (Backstage Pass #1)It’s not anywhere near a beach but it’s so cute that it’s perfect for summer.

Everyday | You can only look at one cover for your life. What would it be? 

A Million Worlds with You (Firebird, #3) EVERYDAY FROM RIGHT NOW I can totally stare at the cover for ages. The colours make me cry happy tears.

Just Wanna Be With You | A book you couldn’t put down

Cinder & EllaCinder and Ella by Kelly Oram, I must have read it until 2am at least. Then reread it and fell asleep in class the next day.

Scream | A frustrating character

Freaking America Singer from The Selection series. Honestly, I’ve never read about someone so indecisive. On the other hand I’ll just spam this bit with angsty Troy pictures instead of the girl sniffing her armpit book cover. You welcome 😀

High School Musical | Your favourite fictional high school

Side story: I totally thought that high school would be totally nice like East High was with the giant cafeteria and the awesome theatre and gym. In reality, my school doesn’t even have indoor lockers. Also, I actually have to study not just sing and dance my way through high school 😦

Does Camp Half Blood count as a high school? I don’t even remember the last time I read a book that has a high school.

Humuhumunukuapua’a | The most ridiculous thing you’ve ever read

I Am Her RevengeThe mum holds a grudge over a teenage heartbreak… FOR LIKE 20 YEARS. And her daughter doesn’t think this is unnatural in any way.

Spring Musical Medley | The happiest ending ever

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1) This book just makes me so happy. I see the cover and immediately my day is just better. The ending is just so perfect and it lets my little heart rest.

If you were/are a big HSM fan, you’re tagged! You can never have too much sudden singing, right?
