– BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes and created by Lainey @ Ginger Reads Lainey. You can check out the group’s Goodreads page to join and check out the topics of the month.

This Week’s Topic: Settings I want to see more of

This consists of both time periods and places that I would love to see more in young adult literature.


^^This has nothing to do with the post. I just love dragons and I just finished watching the second to last episode of season 6 of Game of Thrones. IT’S SO FREAKING GOOD!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want to See Made Into Movies

This meme is hosted by Broke and the Bookish. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where you choose your top ten picks based on a topic.

This week’s topic: books I want to see made into movies

I just went through my “read” shelf in Goodreads and picked out my favorite books/series that weren’t already made into movies. Realistically, most of these books can’t be made into good movies (kind of like the Percy Jackson movies). There are some books better left alone, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting them to be turned into movies.

This Week’s Topic: Best reviews on your blog

Originally, the topic was the best posts, but because I didn’t want to go through all my posts (because some of them are really wacky), I’m going to narrow it down to my best reviews.

These posts are in no particular order.

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Literary Fathers/Father Figures

image

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes and created by Lainey @ Ginger Reads Lainey. You can check out the group’s Goodreads page to join and check out the topics of the month.

This Week’s Topic: Favorite Literary Fathers/Father Figures (because of Father’s Day)

I read a lot of YA fantasy and sci-fi, and a reoccurring theme is that the main character  either only has one parent (most of the time a mom) or have no parents at all. So finding father/fatherly figures for this meme was actually a lot more difficult than I expected it to be. Some of these father’s have already passed away before the story started but I’m still going to include them in because of the lasting image they left of the character(s).

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where you choose your top ten picks based on a topic. This week’s topic is the top ten most anticipated releases for the second half of the year. It’s pretty self-explanatory. I just have to choose my top ten books that I’m most excited for that are going to be released between July and Decemeber of this year.

This Week’s Topic: Favorite Character Names

It’s pretty self-explanatory. I’m going to pick my top five favorite character names and explain why they’re my favorites. Most of the reasons why I like the names that I chose is because it fits the character so well. Plus, I like the characters themselves and that makes me like their names.

Top 10 Tuesday: Ten Reasons I Love the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas

Hey guys! I’m starting another meme on Tuesdays because I’m such a slow reader and I can only make so many teasers with the books I’m currently reading.

I’m going to be alternating between the Top Ten Tuesday meme and the Teaser Tuesday meme, if that makes any sense.

This meme is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is ten reasons why I love X. I chose to talk about the ACOTAR series because I recently finished the second book and I can’ stop thinking about it!

These reasons are in my particular order, but just warning you, I tried to sound reasonable while writing this post but there’s some extreme fangirling in this post. Some of the reasons overlap, but that’s okay. Right?

ATTENTION: There are no spoilers of neither ACOTAR nor ACOMAF in this post.
