Fictional Friend Crushes

School is around the corner, and that means new classes and new people to meet. Comparing my schedule with all my friends, it turns out that I don’t have any classes with them. That means I’ll be needing to make some new friends to get through this school year. As an introvert, at the beginning of the school year, I have some people that I have a friend crush on. Then that got me thinking what it would be like if I were friends with fictional characters.

This list does not limit itself to just book characters. It also includes TV show and movie characters.

Fictional Foods I Want to Try IRL

Do you ever have those instances where you’re reading a book and a character is really enjoying some food and you feel kind of jealous? And then while you’re reading about food, you get hungry but all you want is that food that the character is eating? Yeah, it happens to me all the time.

Also, I just really love food. I mean, who doesn’t? Especially bread. I know it’s super bad for you if you eat too much of it but I love the fluffiness and smell and-

Okay I’ll stop. I’m getting hungry.

Favorite Villains

Heroes are usually celebrated by everyone for their heroism (obviously) and overall awesomeness, but where’s the love for the villains? Although they are bad beings, I can’t help but love them. Unless you’re Professor Umbridge. Then you can burn for all I care. I’m also not a big fan of Voldemort, mainly because he (in my opinion) was pretty bland compared to the rest of the characters.

Sometimes I am more interested in the villain than the protagonist in the story. Take, for example, the trickster god Loki (who is on this list). Between Thor and Loki, I’d rather learn more about the “villain”. He just seems much more interesting than Thor (sorry, dude. You’re still really cool). There’s something about a person who doesn’t have many morals that makes them rather intriguing. I’m not saying that they’re good people, but they are interesting to watch/read about.

Six of Crows Dating Profiles

I’ve been doing some brainstorming for some blog post ideas when I started thinking about what it would be like if fictional characters lived in the real world. Then I thought about my fangirling tendencies of shipping characters together.

I love shipping my OTPs and in real life that would mean dating. What better way to do that than online? I’ve never done online dating, but I can get a good idea of what people’s profiles look like. I just took the basic idea and put together a profile for each member of the Dregs in the Six of Crows series. I know that most of these characters already have a romantic partner, but I’d like to think they’d meet online if they were real.

(Notice: I know most of these characters are just teens, so think of these profiles as a part of a website meant for teenagers rather than adults.)

(Another notice: The artwork I used in this post aren’t mine. I made sure to link the artists’ websites to the picture as well as link it towards the bottom of this post.)

Dream Reading Space

Finding or creating the ideal reading place can be tricky. Any reader knows that there really isn’t a comfortable position to read books (if you have discovered one, please let me know). Sitting down for too long can make your bum go numb (it rhymed!), and lying on your back means that you’re arms will get tired from holding up the book for so long. Plus, you have a higher risk of dropping the book on your face, which isn’t a pleasant experience.

I was inspired by Arhaus.com to create my dream reading space. I had never designed a room before, but it was super fun to experiment around.

Here’s what I came up with.

Throne of Glass #6 Title Reveal!

I was in the class yesterday when my friend and fellow Sarah J. Maas fan squealed and shoved her phone in front of my face. On her phone was this:

It’s the title to the sixth book of the Throne of Glass series! Tower of Dawn! It sounds majestic. I’m expecting a lot of adventure and thrill. Although I want Aelin and the rest of her crew to be part of this story, I’m assuming they’re not going to be. I think it will be kind of like the fifth book. Chaol was briefly mentioned for a grand total of two times in 700 pages. This time, Aelin and the crew will probably be in the background of the story.

The Chaol novel was originally going to be a novella, but Sarah J. Maas wrote so much to the point they’re turning into a book. That means that there’s going to be seven full books in the series, not just six!

I’m a little scared to see what the cover is going to look like. I just hope that it’ll match the rest of the series. I’ve been collecting the hardcovers because they’re gorgeous and matching. I hope this book doesn’t screw that up.

I’ve also heard that there’s going to be some kind of Throne of Glass world guide, which will be interesting! I’m not ready for this series to end so soon. There’s only going to be one more book after this one! I don’t think I’ll ever be ready to say goodbye to the world and characters that I’m now very invested in.

Thank goodness there’s still the A Court of Thorns and Roses series to look forward to these upcoming years.

Until next time….

Dream Team Army

I’ve been thinking recently about what I wanted to write and I remembered this assignment I did in one of my classes. We had to choose an occupation and build a dream team for that job. For example, if I chose the occupation as a surgeon, I would have to build a team of a surgeon, surgeon assistant, nurses, etc.

Taking that idea, I wanted to build my dream team army with book characters if I ever happened to be in a zombie apocalypse. I not only have to consider everyone’s strengths and weaknesses, but also their ability to get along with each other. I was about to put Kaz and Rhysand together but… yeah that wouldn’t end well.

The North Texas Teen Book Festival was Overwhelming but Fun #nttbf17

So, I went to the North Texas Teen Book Festival for the first time Saturday and I have to admit, it was pretty exciting. The only other book festival I went to before was the Texas Teen Book Festival and that didn’t hold a spark compared to this one. I thought that the NTTBF was going to be a bit smaller in scale because it only covered a small portion of Texas, but surprisingly the turnout was big. The convention center that it took place in was PACKED. I had never seen so many people in one place just for books.

Book Boyfriends

It’s Valentine’s Day today where I live. I feel the romance in the air. What better way to celebrate romantic relationships by talking about (book) boyfriends?

As a fangirl, I get emotionally attached to characters that don’t exist in real life. I’d like to think I don’t have a lot of book boyfriends, but realistically, the list is endless. Book boyfriends shouldn’t be mistaken for OTPs (one true pairings), but they could be part of one.
