Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 favourite Villains

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey – and is  now hosted by Sam@thoughtsontomes you can click on this link to find out how to join.

So this week is favourite villains, I think for this topic you have to either read loads of fantasy or Comics/Graphic Novels… which I haven’t unfortunately. Though the ones I have picked I think are pretty badass.

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)

The Darkling from Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy is a pretty hot villain. He is so badass but it makes you want him more. I totally ship Alina and The Darkling.

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)

Amarantha from A Court Of Thorns And Roses. She was pure evil and sadistic but what an amazing villain – I loved reading about her and actually wanted more.

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

AIDAN from Illuminae has to be one of my favourite villains – who thought a computer could be so badass, it just blew my mind.

Nimona

Lord Ballister Blackheart from Nimona is probably one of the most sweetest of villains. He’s a villain but for a good cause and then there is his relationship with Nimona and obviously Goldenloin.

Ready Player One

Nolan Sorrento in Ready Player one, I wouldn’t classify him as a villain per se but he is determined to get what he wants and no one will get in his way.

I really need to read more fantasy with badass villains – let me know if you have read these and your thoughts.

Thanks for reading

Top 5 Wednesday – Books I want to Re-read

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey – and is  now hosted by Sam@thoughtsontomes you can click on this link to find out how to join.

This weeks topic is all about the books that I want to re-read! Now I am not really someone who will re-read books, there are too many books in the world that I want to read and I don’t have enough time to do that so I don’t want to be wasting precious time that I have with books I have already read. If someone forced me to re-read some books, these would be the ones I pick lol.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

These are the only books I have actually re-read(1-4) and will probably be the only ones too especially as the Illustrated versions by Jim Kay are just beautiful.

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

I know I am cheating here using 2 books, but I really enjoyed both of these and wouldn’t mind going back to them…..can’t wait for A Court of Wings and Ruin.

Fangirl

I love Rainbow Rowell books and I really enjoyed this contemporary, the romance is so cute and Levi was my first fictional crush.

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)

I love love love this book, everything about it was amazing even though it made me cry. I don’t know about you sometimes I just need a good cry – so I could re-read this and it would do the trick.

Ready Player One

Another great book, this book had so many 80’s references,gaming  and amazing world building that I wouldn’t mind delving back into this.

So there is my top 5 books that I wouldn’t mind re-reading. Have you read these? Are you a re-reader?

Thanks for reading

Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday – Character’s I used to love but don’t anymore!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey – and is  now hosted by Sam@thoughtsontomes you can click on this link to find out how to join.

I don’t have many characters where I really liked them and then hated them, so I might mix this up a little and may choose characters that I didn’t like to like as well. I usually really love characters all they way through the book or I hate them and never warm to them.

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

Tamlin – I think this is an obvious one for a lot of people. In ACOTAR I was swept along with the lust and relationship of Tamlin and Feyre. I thought the protectiveness was cute until I read ACOMAF and then you start to realise that the relationship was not that healthy and that it was bordering on abusive.

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)

Alina – I am not a massive fan of the Grisha world (unpopular opinion time). In Shadow and Bone I liked Alina, I didn’t love her but she was ok other than her feelings of inept. It all changed in Siege and Storm, she just got on my nerves constantly worrying about Mal and just whining – well at the moment I just can’t stand her. Hopefully she redeems herself in Ruin and Rising.

Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow, #1)

Snow – I didn’t love her but she was ok to start with! Then she got to Algid and was just really selfish, making stupid decisions and then wanting to get it on with every boy who looked at her…. urgh!

You (You, #1)

Joe – This one I am changing around a bit. Joe is this creepy stalker bloke that gets obsessed with girls he meets and then just hacks into all the social media accounts and stalks the shit out of people – to say he is weird is an understatement.  WOAH HOLD THE F@#KING DOOR, I start to feel sorry for him and start liking him because the woman he is stalking is an absolute bitch and treats him like shit. Damn you Kepnes for making me like a stalker.

 

Not quite 5 but I really enjoyed thinking about the characters in the book. Do you have any characters you loved but now hate or even the other way round?

Thanks for reading

Top 5 Wednesday – Summer reads

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey – and is  now hosted by Sam@thoughtsontomes you can click on this link to find out how to join.

This weeks topic is summer reads, ones that are quick,fun (possibly) and good to read at the beach. Hopefully I come up with some different books as I feel like I am naming the same books over and over again. I tend to read books with darker topics but I do love my contemporaries.

 

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)

This book has a darker topic and is very emotional but at the same time it has a great family and is funny in parts. Plus the writing is super quick and easy so you will fly through it. I have recently read this so watch this space for my upcoming review.

Since You've Been Gone

I am sure Morgan Matson’s books are going to be on almost everyone’s top 5. This book involves great friendships and with well-developed romances/relationships – no insta-love here. My Review

The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl

This book is set in Australia, it includes a predicted apocalypse, there is a relationship and also it talks about comics. My Review

 

Beautiful Broken Things

If you want a coming of age story with no romance and just about friendships then look no further because this will deliver. My Review

I'll Give You the Sun

I am sure this one is going to be on a lot of lists too. But this was a great coming of age story told from 2 point of views, Noah and Jude. My Review

There are my top 5 summer reads – let me know if you have the same as me or any that you recommend as I am always looking out for great summer reads.  Happy hump day!
