T5W:Favorite Polarizing Books


Okay to be honest I had to look what polarizing means also which books count for it. And this is what I came up with and hope you enjoy.

10818853

50 Shades Series by E.L. James: Lot of people give this series a lot of hate, but I can’t help but love it. I get that its not the best thing written or the concept people can’t get behind. Yet this series is a totally guilty pleasure for me that I wont apologize for.

how-to-love

How to Love by Katie Cotugno: This is a your going to either like it or dislike it. I was the first one. This was just a sweet contemporary that I enjoyed and glad I read.

41865

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: I read this series before it got really popular and I remember loving it. I probably couldn’t read it again without cringing however I’ll always have that first time.

19063

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: It took me a bit to get into the book itself but dang when I did I loved it. This book made a rare thing happen and I cried which will keep this book special to me.

rebel-belle

Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins: I didn’t like this book which sucks because the concept should have made me like it. However the main character Harper was not my favorite and her decisions ruined it.

So I did four loves and one dislike and its all fun. Let me know what you think.

T5W:Favorite First Liners


First liners are important because it can make or break if a person wants to read it or not. For people like me who only glimpse at that summary then open the book to see if its something that you want to read. If not then it goes right back on the shelf. So here are some first liners that kept me interest to keep reading.

“My name is Lizzy Tucker, and I used to think I was normal.”

-from Wicked by Janet Evanovich

“When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home”

-from The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

“Today was the day a thousand dreams would die and a single dream would be born.”

-The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

“A stabbing pain jolts me awake.”

-from Alive by Scott Sigler

“I’m pretty much fucked”

-from The Martin by Andy Weir

So these are some of my favorite book first liners that I have come across in my reading life. Of course there more, because there will always be more to read them from. So my fellow book lovers have any favorite first liners let me know which ones they are. Until next time 🙂

Top 5 Wednesday 


Topic: top 5 major badasses

1. Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb’s in death series. She’s a Lieutenant who gets her cases solved and don’t let anyone stand in her way. 

2. Roarke from J.D. Robb in death series. Roarke came from being a Dublin’s street rat to becoming one of the riches man out there. 

3. Damon Black from Jennifer L. Armentrout Lux series. He is a badass from day one which made me fall in love with him. 

4.Mark Watney from The Martian book. Because if any many can survivor on a another planet as long as he did. That makes him a total badass

5. Krestel from Marie Ruthoski Winner Curse series. She’s a badass for how she strategize and can think on her feet. 

This list was harder than I thought but here it is. I love badasses in books for they make me laugh and love them quicker. 

Top 5 Wendesday


Topic: series to read for the fast approaching new year. 

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons (I’ve had this series for a long while and I need to get around to at least reading the first book already) 

Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson (am so behind on this series that it’s ridiculous. Fingers crossed for next year).  

The Young Elite by Marie Lu(I’ve been wanting to read these for awhile and now I really want to read them before the next book comes out). Ps if I also want to read the Legend series. Heads up.  

The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson (again two books I need to read before the last book comes out this coming year).

    Birthright by Gabrielle Zevin (okay all I know about this series is it involve chocolate and coffee. However I collected the books so I need to get to it). 

Unwind by Neal Shusterman (I need to just a really want to read).

Something I really need to do is stop collecting series/trilogies and actual read them. So hopefully come this next year I will finally do it. 

T5W: Side Characters That Deserve Their Own Series


1. Kenji from the Shatter Me trilogy. I have been saying this since the second book and I know plenty of others as well. Kenji is just a great character he’s loyal to the Omega Point, and a great friend to Juliette. Plus he has a wicked sense of humor. Why wouldn’t anyone want to see more of that in book form.

2. Roar from Under the Never Sky. I love Roar in this trilogy so I need at least one book. Other than a novella I wouldn’t mind more of him.

3. Jamie from the unbecoming of mara dyer trilogy. Please just please. He didn’t have much of part in the first two books. However I still would love to just enjoy a book on Jamie.

4.Meredith and Rashmi from Anna and the French Kiss. I know a two-fer.I would like to see what happened to them after Anna and the French Kiss.

Top 5 Wednesday Character Types you would like to Drown


Okay i changed the question a little bit ,but hey there are a lot of characters that I could easy drown. So am going with type of characters that would not be safe with me around body of water.

1. Queens and Kings 

They always let the power they get go to there heads. Clear example would be Queen Levana from the Luna Chronicles. I don’t know if I would every get close enough to get her close to a drowning unless I ask Cinder for help. And even then it’ll be difficult but if I can get the job done then I wouldn’t mind the work. Its hard to love the royal families when they try to control people, start wars, and kill just because. So if they drown in a little lake or pond then I don’t think anyone would mind.

2. Crazed Boy Best Friends

Great example is Bree from the Sweep series. She is supposed to be the best friend of our main character Morgan. However when Cal came along and showed interest in Morgan then Bree decide they can’t be friends anymore. Saying she’s in love with Cal. Oh and Cal is not off the hook either as he knew, but I believe was enjoying it to much. That’s what I don’t get about these kinds of characters. How can a friendship that you’ve had all your life go up in smoke thanks to one guy I don’t get that and may never will. So drown.

3. Mayors in general 

Have you’ve ever read a book with a good mayor in it. Let me know because I sure haven’t. In The Chaos Walking Trilogy everyone thought that Aaron was the evil guy. He was but not compared to Mayor Prentiss who brained washed his town, and attack other towns. So please tell me how does that make him the true enemy so drowning him would be doing people a favor.

4. Abbess

This is a thanks to the Abbess Mother from  His Fair Assassin Trilogy. She is pissed me off ever time she showed up because the Abbess always wanted to send the girls off. Even if it is not what they want to do, and call it there Gods wish. I call bullshit. I don’t know what her end game is, but I say just drown her so she can stop pushing people around.

5. Characters That Remind me of Peter

So straight up bullies. Am so tired of having bullies that never learn anything. (Side note I haven’t read past Divergent of the series so I don’t know if he grows any. So for this he’s a bully). So making him an example my get them in line for once. Oh and can I include spoil kids to. They become bullies so they should count on the list of lets drown you.

So that was my top 5 of Character types that I wouldn’t mind drowning in one way or another. So the question is which characters or type would you like you to drown. Let me know down below. Until next time guys keep reading 🙂

T5w: Favorite Series Endings


I don’t finish series very often so this list was a bit hard to come up with. However thanks to goodreads I picked my top 5 happy endings in series that I did finish so here we go.

1.The Heist Society by Ally Carter
I loved the story and the adventures that Katarina Bishop and friends go on to pull the heist. The heist get a little more complicated as the trilogy goes on but a very good story overall. Plus the relationship between Katarina and Hal was so enjoyable you knew they liked each other however was to stubborn.

2.Shadow Falls by C.C. Hunter
I loved this series for the relationship and mystery of what Kylie Galen. Plus it helped that there is supernatural elements, and that Kylie picked the guy I wanted in the end so that’s always a bonus.

3.The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
I don’t know of anyone who was didn’t love the story or end of these series. The world building in Victorian London, and the relationships are the best. Also that ending was something I haven’t seen before and tip my hat to Cassandra Clare for pulling it off.
4.Sign of Seven by Nora Roberts
This is one of my favorite series by Nora Roberts that is a respect read for me. I love the three “brothers” with there humor and good looks. Also the story itself had its dark moments that I didn’t really expect. The end was great for the fact that the chaos stopped and everyone left happy.

5.The Iron Fey by Julia Kagawa
My first Fey series and I really enjoyed this for the fact that there is character growth throughout. Not just in Megan Chase but the other characters as well. And again the world in the Never Never was dangerous but still full of imagination that I really enjoyed.
