Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About

This meme is hosted by Jana over at The Artsy Reader Girl.

Some of these books, I’m very disappointed to say I don’t remember much about. Although, I haven’t read some of them in years! I do remember the basic plot and certain accompanying details, and regardless, I know that I enjoyed most all of them immensely!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books of 2016

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

My top ten books of 2016 include books I listened to on audio, because obviously they’re books too! This year had some pretty darn good ones I must say! Particularly in the audiobook department, which was very unexpected for me. Here they are in no particular order.

 

 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat After

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Yay for having time to do another Top Ten Tuesday!! I love this topic! Some of these I’d love to name my future children after, others are definitely pet worthy! For the record, I have no children but of course as a girl I’ve thought about names for a while.  Here they are in no particular order (except my first which is my top).

1. Alice (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland): I am so in love with this story and I love the name Alice because of it, and of course I LOVE Alice in The White Rabbit Chronicles! It also helps that the name of the main character in Resident Evil is Alice too! I would love to name my future daughter after the classic character!

558044

2. Rowan (Rowan Hood: Outlaw Girl of Sherwood Forest): this name is just so simple yet so unique; it would make such a cute little girl’s name! I wouldn’t mind using it in personal writing either.

1656001

3.Jared (The Host): I loved this name from the get-go! And then it was made all the better when I fell in love with Supernatural starring Jared ! The name is just hot! I would so not be opposed to naming a son Jared.

4.Avelyn (Avelyn): This name is so elegant and beautiful! I’m really not sure what I would use it for, but probably in personal writing.

13644055

5. Archer (Opposition (Lux #5)): Super badass name that would also make a great name for my future german shepherd that I am determined to get as soon as I have a house with a yard!

1034516

6. Matthew ( The Named): One of the best Christian names,it’s strong and comforting. I would love to name my future son Matthew!

16096824

7. Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses): Pronounced Fay-ruh, this name is gorgeous! It’s such a fairy tale name and would make a beautiful name for a little girl, or even a cute kitty name if I’m being honest!

13450339

8. Jack or Jackson (Arcana Chronicles): Great name for a dog or cat! Super cute and brings all the feels.

25898833

9. Riven (The Almost Girl): Badass name! I would love to name my kid this or a pet, sad that either one would work.

21787

10.Westley (The Princess Bride): This name is adorable and all I see is Carrie Elwes every time but that would not stop me from naming a pet after this character! In fact my best friend and I named a puppy she was fostering after Westley!

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed Me A Fully Loaded Gift Card

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

There are so many glorious books out there that I have been dying to get my hands on! However, as you might know, I am college student, and am therefore not in my financial prime. It’s also been quite some time since I’ve had a substantial amount of Amazon gift card money to buy a book. Thank god for ARCS, otherwise I would be spending so much more than I already do on books. Some of these I have been meaning to read for years, others weeks/months, I really hope to eventually get around to reading all of them! Here they are in no particular order!

Top Ten Tuesdays: Top Ten Reasons I love Jennifer L. Armentrout

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Yes hello hey! I’m back for another Top Ten Tuesday (I realize mine are very sporadic now). Any who,  this week’s topic is “Top Ten Reasons I love (insert something you love). I have read many books by Jennifer L. Armentrout over the past 5 years or so. I am completely and totally in love with her books and writing style! So allow me to explain just how much and why I love her as an author!

Alright prepare for the fangirling!tumblr_lkjx9nfCED1qafrh6_zps6fc37e63

 

1. She creates the best witty banter between the two love interests in her books!

“Why are you such an ass?” The words came out before I could think twice.
“Everyone has to excel at something, right?”
“Well, you’re doing a great job.”

-Obsidian (Lux #1)

2.Every one of her books is unique and unlike anything I’ve ever read!

3. She has the best author Instagram account: @authorjlarmentrout

4. Did I mention she’s a Fan of Supernatural?!

supernatural-awesome

5. JLA is always writing, so even when you have to wait for the next book in her series to come out, there’s a pretty good chance you can read something else of her’s while you wait!

6. She creates a KILLER romance in every book/series! 

7. Her books are “unputdownable!”

8.JLA knows how to throat punch you with all the feels!
