Top Ten Tuesday: Auto-Buy Authors

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This is in no particular order. :) It’s too painful to do in order… I’ll be here forever trying to decide!

stay with me where i belong confess

  • Jennifer L. Armentrout
  • J. Daniels
  • Colleen Hoover

the start of you and me sweet reckoning ignite me

  • Emery Lord
  • Wendy Higgins
  • Tahereh Mafi

boundless beautiful obilivion twilight the last song

  • Cynthia Hand
  • Jamie McGuire
  • Stephenie Meyer (well, it would be nice to have more books by her. ;) )
  • Nicholas Sparks (I’ve only read 2, but I ADORED them)

I’m surprised at how hard this was! I figured this would have been one of the EASIEST topics ever… When really, I spent forever picking! I’ve come across SOO many authors, but a lot I’ve either only read 1 (or 2) and they may only have 1 or they have already written alot. So those authors, I couldn’t add because it wouldn’t be fair because I haven’t read enough to actually have an opinion. But, this was a fun topic! It would be interesting to see this next year and see how my tastes have changed (or stayed same). :)

Fictitious Friday (#1): The Lion & The Lamb…

Fictitious fridays banner

Fictitious Friday is a meme that was started by Mortal Moments in which you spotlight favorite books, characters, places, etc.

For my very first post on this meme, I’m discussing a fandom which I have a huge love for… This shouldn’t surprise many of my followers honestly. ;)

10844066_857524014278948_941459820_n 10808836_328312404017393_1541085756_n

Yes, your not seeing things! It’s the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer!! I have such a deep attachment to this series… This is what started my love for reading. Words cannot describe how much I love (and miss) this series. Everything about this series was so much fun and amazing! I remember going to all the premieres (all except Twilight obviously) and being decked out in Twilight gear. Having over 20 t-shirts, owning like 2 blankets, a pillow case (that I still use on my bed today), a shelf on my bookshelf dedicated to Twilight… I’m still one of those that is still obsessed with the series even after all the hype around vampires. Literally everything that is my favorite in books, meaning, my favorite series, favorite author, favorite couple, favorite book boyfriend, the whole 9 yards!

Seriously, I miss this series SOOO much! I’ve considered re-reading SO many times since I got back into reading! I think I re-read them like 3-4 times while the movies were releasing, but since breaking dawn either part 1 or 2, I haven’t re-read again. I really miss all these characters and all the feelings that came with this series! Yeah, it’s a little cheesy and sparkly vampires, but guys, you don’t understand how much I ADORE this series! :D BEST. SERIES. EVER!

I can thank Stephenie Meyer twice. Once for my love of reading after reading the Twilight Saga, then again after I stopped reading and picked up The Host last year in 2013! Stephenie Meyer brought back my love of reading TWICE! I’m REALLY hoping she writes another book, because both were amazing!!!

Ohh yeah… I still own ALL of my Twilight shirts… They are just chilling in my closet! I literally CANNOT get myself to get rid of them! I’ve considered making like a quilt out of the shirts. I seriously can’t bring myself to just throw them away! They hold way too many memories!!

Well, I guess that’s it for this. ;) See you next week for my next favorites post!

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: It’s been so long since I’ve read this trilogy, but I was obsessed with it for months after reading! (at least 6!) The feelings are still very raw and I still remember crying and being happy and just experiencing all the feels through this AMAZING trilogy!

3. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: Oh gosh, it’s been like 5 years since I read one of my all time favorite series… I miss Dimitri and Rose and everyone! I still need to catch up on Bloodlines, but hopefully soon! #TEAMDIMITRI!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Were Hard For Me To Read

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is ‘top ten characters who would be sitting at my lunch table’. This is is no particular order.

the-host broken beauty the queens choice

1. The Host by Stephenie Meyer: This is what started back up my love for reading last year in 2013. So it was difficult for me because it had been so long since I had last read. But, thankfully I absolutely ADORED this book and I can thank Stephenie Meyer (twice) for making me love reading so much! She is 100% responsible for starting my love for reading and bringing it back!

2. Broken Beauty by Lizzy Ford: The subject matter was very difficult for me. It’s one of those very touchy subjects- rape. But Lizzy Ford did an amazing job at making this a beautiful story (still need to continue)!

3. The Queen’s Choice by Cayla Cruver: Overall I had a very difficult time with this one… Yes, I overall enjoyed the book, but I just wasn’t jumping up and down dying to know what happened next. It was just a “bleh” read for me.

mind games the here and now bloodlines

4. Mind Games by Kiersten White: This was another I had trouble with. But I definitely had more trouble with this one… I didn’t care for the characters or what was going on. It was all too confusing to me and I didn’t like it too much.

5. The Here and Now by Ann Brashares: My memory of this book is very hazy… That’s how much I didn’t care for it. I know that’s a little harsh but it’s true. There was nothing special about this book, I couldn’t connect with the characters and I was confused the entire time!

6. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: This is a different story… It’s been over 4 years since I last read the Vampire Academy series, so details have completely escaped me. Going back into this world after being gone from it for so long was very difficult for me for a while. Vampire Academy is one of my all time favorite series ever. The typical trend with both series is the books get better as they go on. So I know once I continue, it will only get better. ;)

the last policeman insurgent delirium

7. The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters: My only big issue was the age difference. I’m not used to reading adult books, so reading from a guy’s point of view who’s in his 30’s was very difficult for me. I didn’t connect with him because I’m not close to his age so I don’t experience everything he’s going through (to an extent). But I overall really liked the story!

8. Insurgent by Veronica Roth: I was spoiled after reading Divergent, you’ve all heard me talk about this. I absolutely could not stand Tris in Insurgent. She was very annoying to me and I felt that she was ALWAYS arguing with Tobias… No matter what it was. They were fighting. Never happy. Ever. It annoyed me to no ends. Maybe that’s partly due to I knew the ending of Allegiant… But who knows!

9. Delirium by Lauren Oliver: I had the HARDEST time with the first half of this book. I was almost tempted to stop reading the book, I was so bored out of my mind! The ending definitely made up for the first half, but I’m not dying to pick up the second book (and it’s been a while now).

what i thought was true

10. What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick: I REALLY tried to like this book, I did. But it just didn’t work for me. I didn’t care for the characters and had a very difficult time connecting to them. This was my first book by her so I was a little nervous, but I’ve already read My Life Next Door and absolutely loved it!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is ‘top ten characters who would be sitting at my lunch table’. This is is no particular order.

obsidian twilight unearthly

1. Katy, Daemon, and Dee from the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout: I LOVE KATY AND DAEMON SO MUCH! I don’t need any other reasons…. :) I adore Dee, she’s an amazing best friend and it would be awesome to have her at lunch with everyone!

2. Edward and Bella from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: Again, one of my favorites. I absolutely ADORE this series so much so it only makes sense that these 2 would be coming! PLUS RENESMEE will come also!!! :D

3. Tucker from the Unearthly trilogy by Cynthia Hand: He’s a sexy cowboy and I love him so much! It would be a little weird with Daemon and Edward AND Tucker there… But ohh well. It will work! :) I would invite Clara, but there wasn’t enough room and I didn’t want her to sit on the ground. :)

the unbecoming of mara dyer branded 2

4. Mara and Noah from the Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin: I love this trilogy and I LOVE Mara and Noah a lot! It would be interesting to have them at the lunch table to say the least!

5. Cole and Lexi from Branded by Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki: Holy moly… These 2 have A LOT of sexual tension between the two so it might be a little weird with them at the table! :P But I LOVE those 2, so it will be okay! If Cole brings Zeus, I will be 200% happy, I love that dog so so much!
