The Hamilton Book Tag!

If you somehow do not know what Hamilton is…it is basically an epic musical based on the life and events of Alexander Hamilton. I am not even American, yet I absolutely love the songs from this musical, and the whole history behind them. Since I love Hamilton so much, as well as books, I thought this would the perfect tag to do! (P.S. I am not sure who created this tag, but if you do know definitely let me know!)

The Room Where It Happens – Pick a Book World That You Would Put Yourself In

Ok, so for this literally everyone has said Harry Potter, because who wouldn’t want to live in a world where magic exists? Of course that would be my answer, but I decided to be a little more original and not officially choose that. So, my answer is the Percy Jackson world from Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. I chose this because I would love to be the child of some all powerful god or goddess, and also have some fighting skills as well.

The Schulyer Sisters – Share a Female Character That You Think is Underrated

I definitely have to go with Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. Hermione is such an intelligent person, yet she doesn’t get enough credit for it. Especially by Snape, who literally calls her a snobby know-it-all, just because she knows the answers to his questions. I think that Ron and Harry also took her a little for granted and some points, and while there were moments Hermione did show some girl power, I wish there were more scenes like that!

My Shot – Pick a Character That Goes After What They Want

Emma Carstairs from Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare! I think Emma is a very strong and independent character, which I really appreciate. Emma definitely goes after what she wants no matter the consequences, and takes nothing from nobody because she knows she could easily destroy them with a flick of her sword, Cortana.

Stay Alive – Pick a Character You Wish Was Still Alive

Hahahaha, if you have not finished watching season 8 of the Vampire Diaries (yes, I am using a TV show for this question, but it is also a book so…) then DO NOT READ BELOW!

For this I have to go with Stefan Salvatore because really? You really have to go and kill off a great guy who just tries to keep the ones he loves alive? Ugh, I cried a lot because of his death. It was just so sad to think that not only is he never really going to see Elena again after her being half dead for a few years, but he is also not going to see Caroline, Damon, Bonnie and really anyone again. The thought of this is absolutely heart breaking.

Burn – The Most Devastating End To A Relationship You Read About

Champion by Marie Lu…if you have read it you know what I am talking about.

You’ll Be Back – The Sassiest Villain You Have Read In A Book

Again! I have to use The Vampire Diaries because oh my gosh, Katherine and Kai were the most sassiest and best villains I have ever watched unfold on the screen. I mean yeah, they were awful people, but they were never dull or boring.

The Reynolds Pamphlet – A Book With a Twist That You Didn’t See Coming

I don’t like being spoiled on twists that happen in books so I am just not going to answer this one!

Non Stop – Pick A Series That You Marathoned

I have marathoned many, many series so I am just going to a list a few. Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, Harry Potter by JK Rowling…The list goes on and on.

Satisfied – Pick Out Your Favourite Book With Multi POV

I can definitely tell you which book that I did not appreciate it having multiple POVs, and that was The 5th Wave by Rick Yancy. But for a book that I did enjoy that had mutli POV would probably be The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare because I always love Cassandra Clare’s main characters. They are just so fun and diverse and I always enjoying reading in their different perspectives.

Who Lives Who Dies Who Tells Your Story – Pick A Book That YOU Think Will Go Down In History

This time I am just going to go with the obvious choice, and that is Harry Potter by JK Rowling because it still has a massive impact on not only readers, but society today and it was written in the early 90’s! I think Harry Potter will not fade for a long, long, long time and I am glad because it truly is a fantastic series.

Those are my answers for the Hamilton Book Tag and I tag anyone who has the desire to do it!

Shadowhunter Runes Book Tag (Original)

There are so many Shadowhunter runes out there, so I decided to get a little creative and create my own tag using some of the runes. If you want to do this tag don’t forget to tag me in it so I can see all of your answers to the questions I have chosen!

Trust – Pick a Book/Series Where Trust Was Betrayed

Image result for trustrune

If you haven’t read Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan than do not keep reading!!!

The book I chose for this question is Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, and the character is yes, you guessed it, Luke Castellan. I really liked Luke and then all of the sudden we realized he wasn’t who we thought he was, and it broke my heart.

Acceleration – Pick a Book/Series That You Accelerated Through

Image result for acceleration rune the mortal instruments

I have flown through many, many books, but the first one that came to my mind was Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. This is a pretty massive book, being over 660 pages, and I was so sucked into the world and the characters that I finished it in less than forty eight hours. Every spare time I had before school, during school and after school was used to read this amazing book.

Deflect/Block – Pick a Book/Series That You Have Blocked Out From Your Mind

Image result for acceleration rune the mortal instruments

A book I try not to think about at all, is The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancy, the sequel to The 5th Wave. I really, really enjoyed The 5th Wave. I thought it was fun and action packed, and so I was super excited to jump into the sequel…only to be utterly disappointed. I did not like this book at all and I try and block it out from my mind.

Recall – Pick the First Book/Series You Read

Image result for recall rune

The first book series I remember the most vividly that I read, would be Junie B Jones by Barbara Park. I read so many of these books when I was younger, and I really enjoyed them. They lead me to reading more little chapter books like Geronimo Stilton and The Magic Treehouse that eventually lead me to reading the books I do today.

Friendship – Pick a Book/Series That Has an Awesome Friendship

Image result for friendship rune the mortal instruments

I have to go with the Golden Trio from Harry Potter by JK Rowling! They are different in many, many ways, making them unbeatable when they are together. When you think of an ideal friendship, you cannot help but think of Harry, Hermione and Ron.

Surefooted – Pick a Confident Character from a Book/Series

Image result for surefooted rune

Who else can I say but Jace from The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare? Jace is such a cocky, arrogant character, but you can’t help but be head over heels for him because he does mean well. He knows people look at him in awe and he knows people drool as he walks by, and I cannot blame them.

Insight/Foresight – Pick a Book/Series with a Predictable Ending

Image result for insight rune the mortal instruments

It wasn’t necessarily a bad thing that this ending was predictable, but still, it was pretty obvious. The series I chose for this is The Selection by Kiera Cass because we all knew what was going to happen. I won’t spoil it for anyone who hasn’t picked up these books, but the cover of the third book also gave it away so…

Waterproof – Pick a Book/Series That Everyone Else but You Cried While Reading

Image result for waterproof rune

The Fault and Our Stars by John Green hands down! I liked the story to an extent, but I felt no emotional attachment to the characters so I didn’t cry…at all. As a matter of fact, during the movie I forced myself to cry just so people wouldn’t think I was a monster with a black hole where my heart should be!

Power – Pick a Book/Series That Has a Powerful Message

Image result for power rune

There is a lot of hype over the TV series at the moment so I thought this would be a suitable choice, and that is Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I thought that this story holds a very important message that more people should be aware about. People need to watch out for signs from loved ones, or even the people around them, of suicide and realize it is not a joke.

That is all for my Shadowhunter Runes Tag, and if you want to do it than I tag you! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Spring/Summer 2017 TBR

 

 

Never Will I Ever Book Tag!

I was tagged by Ann at https://annthebookmaster.wordpress.com/ so thank you, and definitely check out her post as well as her blog!

Never Will I Ever Ship This: Pick a Book/Series OTP That You Will Never Ship

88fe50cc73e03e2cef66b1b3a7759602

For this, I definitely have to go with Chaol and Celaena from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. I did not agree with that ship at all because one, I am a DorianxCalaena shipper and also I just didn’t think they went that well together! Chaol is too uptight for Calaena which is why I haven’t and never will ship this OTP.

Never Will I Ever Forget This Ending: Pick a Book/Series Ending You Will Never Forget (In a Good or Bad Way)

lady-midnight-by-cassandra-clare

This was difficult because there are a lot of endings I will never forget, whether it is in a good way or a bad way. I will say that at the moment, the ending for Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare had me shook, and lets be honest, it still does. I won’t spoil anything for anyone who hasn’t read it, but if you have, you know what I mean. Those last few lines though!

Never Will I Ever Get Over this Character’s Death: Pick a Character Death from a Book/Series That You Will Never Stop Mourning (Give Spoiler Warning)

thevampirediaries

Okay, I am kind of bending the rules a bit because I am choosing a two characters from The Vampire Diaries TV show, but it is also book so at the same time its all okay. So if you haven’t completed all the seasons of The Vampire Diaries, than don’t keep reading!!!

So I have two for this answer at that is Jeremy’s death in season six, I think, because it was so heartbreaking to watch Elena lose not only her parents, but her brother as well. I know he comes back and all, like everyone seems to, but still, it broke me! Another that actually stayed dead, is Stefan Salvatore in that final episode…I cried so hard and will never stop mourning him.

Never Will I Ever Stop Crying Over this Book: Pick a Book/Series That You Will Always Cry Over (In a Good or Bad Way)

thWCIJ53JD

The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan! I chose this because even though it wasn’t all I was expecting, I cried because the series that I had been reading for years and years had ended and my favourite characters would no longer be in the spotlight anymore. I knew I would see Percy and Annabeth and the others in other Rick Riordan books, but this was the end of their adventures and the thought just makes me cry an ocean of tears!

Never Will I Ever Read this Book/Series: Pick a Book/Series You Will Never Read

the-100-tv-series-wallpapers

 

I was going to say The Vampire Diaries by LJ Smith, but I decided to change it up a bit and so I went with The 100 by Kass Morgan. I absolutely love the TV show, especially this current season, but I do not see myself ever picking up the book series just because I have heard from many reliable sources, that it is nowhere near as fantastic as the TV series. I don’t like saying never though, so possibly one day I will give it a try, but at this point, I don’t see myself reading it any time soon.

Never Will I Ever Stop Raving About this Book/Series:  Pick a Book/Series You Will Never Stop Raving About

 

I have to go with two different series for this, just because I think they are both amazing. The first is, of course, The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare because not only does it hold a lot of sentimental value to me, but I also just love the characters, the story and the world. The second series is the Ruby Red trilogy by Kerstin Gier which is just such an interesting and fun trilogy on time travel that I recommend to as many people as possible!

Never Will I Ever Lend this Book/Series to a Friend: Pick a Book/Series You Will Never Let Anyone Borrow

harry-potter-philosophers-stone-book

My Harry Potter series by JK Rowling because not only is it the beautiful UK edition, but it is also all paperback meaning it bends easily. I want everyone to read Harry Potter but they can just go to the library and pick up the series instead of ruining my gorgeous book covers!

I tag whoever wants to do this tag!

That is all for the Never Will I Ever Book Tag and thanks again, Ann, for tagging me to do this fun tag! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: May 2017 Talk!

Fairy Tale Book Tag!

I decided to create a new tag that associates fairy tales with books, and while this has most likely been done already, I wanted to make my own! It was very fun to make so I hope you enjoy it 🙂

Beauty and the Beast – Pick a book where love triumphs everything.

There were a few choices for this one but overall I am going to have to say Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead because despite everything that happens (not going to spoil anything) to Rose and Dimitri, they still fight through it and we really do see that their love for each other is stronger than any obstacle thrown at them…if you have finished the series you definitely know what I mean!

Cinderella – Pick a book with a beautiful cover change.

Anna and the French Kiss had an absolutely terrible cover before the new one which I now really like. The old cover had the Eiffel Tower in the background, a close up of a park bench with 2 people sitting on it and their hands almost touching. Long story short it is definitely one of the worst covers I have seen but the cover change is very nice so it is all good!

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves – Pick a book with a large cast of characters.

Definitely going to use this one to talk about The Mortal Instruments because the whole series has a great and diverse cast of characters. We have Clary, Jace, Simon, Isabelle, Alec and Magnus as the main people we follow and I honestly love all of them (not all the time though…) and I find it very fun following them on their adventures. They are hilarious and unique in their own ways and I could read in their POV’s forever and ever and ever.

Sleeping Beauty – Pick a book that put you to sleep.

Ha ha ha…Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I really loved the first book in this trilogy, Divergent, but the second one was such a let down! It was slow and nothing too exciting happened. I also felt as if the writing declined slightly and I also didn’t really enjoy where the story went and how some of the characters dealt with certain situations…

Red Riding Hood – Pick a book with a “big bad wolf” in it.

I am also going to use this to sneak in some Harry Potter because honestly, Voldemort is the villain I least want to meet. In the books and movies he just unnerved me so much and he is definitely the worst of all villains. Just the way he looks with his nostril slits and pale skin, and just how cruel and insensitive he is scares me more than a wolf that’s for sure.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Pick a book with a world that sucked you in.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan! I find the world in this series so intriguing because of all the mythology. We never actually leave the real world, but Rick Riordan throws in the right amount of mythology to make it a place you never want to leave. Overall, Greek Mythology, to me, is the extremely interesting and I always love to read about it.

That was my Fairy Tale Book Tag and I hope you enjoyed it! If you do this tag definitely tell me because I would love to see all your answers for the questions!

 

 

 

Favourite Series by the Genres

I am a huge fan of so many series but I decided to pick my favourite from each genre so here are my all time favourites! BTW I do use some not as popular genres to fit in all of my favourites…I just had to add them all.

Fantasy: The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare – I absolutely LOVE the Mortal Instruments series so much, therefore making Cassandra Clare my all time favourite fantasy author as well. I love her easy writing and how it just flows nicely together. She makes wicked characters and epic worlds and honestly, her books are just a gift to read.

High Fantasy (yes): A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas – Yes, this is going to be separate from the regular ‘fantasy’ genre because Sarah J Maas is such freaking fantastic writer that I had to add in here. A Court of Thorns of Roses is by far one of my favourite reads of this year because it was magical, epic and just perfection.

Sci-Fi: The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – I don’t read much sci-fi but the Lunar Chronicles is definitely the way to go. This series incorporates fairy tales, awesome characters and just overall an amazing story line. These books are so much fun to read and Marissa Meyer just has such a captivating writing style!

Dystopian: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – Again, I don’t read a lot of dystopian but the Shatter Me trilogy kept me entertained from beginning to end and I really just love these books. They are fun, gripping and just really easy reads. Plus Warner…

Middle Grade: Harry Potter by JK Rowling – YES this is counting as middle grade because technically it is along with fantasy AND I wanted to add my other favourite middle grade series in here too. But yeah! I am obsessed with Harry Potter, obviously, because how could you not love this epic world that JK Rowling has created?

Mythology: Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan – This has mythology and mythology is a genre so bam. Percy Jackson was the first series I read and the series that got me into reading so not including it would be a crime. Plus Rick Riordan has a way of creating the most lovable and amazing characters so…

Contemporary: Anna, Lola and Isla by Stephanie Perkins – Okay, so the titles of these books were waaay to long to put altogether but technically speaking this is a contemporary trilogy…I mean the stories all tie in together right? Anyways, I love all these books so much. They have awesome characters I relate to, they have Etienne and Cricket and they also just have cute scenes that make me all warm and fuzzy!

Those are all my favourite series/trilogies and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to comment some of your favourite series below as well 🙂

 

Top 5 Favourite Series

I really like making “Top 5…” lists so here is my top 5 favourite series! Don’t forget to check out my last post and comment what your all time favourite series is.

  1. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare – I don’t know if you’ve noticed…but I am obsessed with the Mortal Instruments series. It is such a fun and amazing series with fantastic characters and an overall intriguing story line. I first read this series around 3 years ago and it has been my favourite series since then.
  2. Harry Potter by JK Rowling – It’s not a favourites list without Harry Potter on it! Harry Potter is such an AMAZING series that I love to read over and over and over. If you have NOT read this series for some reason please do because it will definitely change your life and view on reading.
  3. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – I absolutely LOVE Vampire Academy. This series is just so interesting and easy going and I loved every second of it when I was reading the series. Every end of a book kept me on my toes and wanting more desperately. I just love when books do that because it makes me want to continue with that series!
  4. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan – This book series will always be on my favourites list for two reasons. 1) It was the series that opened the doors to reading for me and 2) it is just so darn fantastic. But seriously, Percy Jackson is one of my FAVOURITE main characters ever. He is sassy, sarcastic and amazing in all ways.
  5. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas – I have only read the first book so far in this series (out of 2) and it literally blew me away. It was a phenomenal book that made me want to keep reading and not stop. Sarah J Maas has such a beautiful writing style and unique storylines that I always enjoy. I cannot wait to pick up the second book in this amazing series!

Reading Routine

We all have our night and morning routines but some of us also have our reading routines so I decided to share that with you guys today! It’s not anything weird or different but this is just how I like to prepare myself before I let myself be whisked away to the world of whatever book I am reading.

It’s usually around eight thirty at night when I start thinking about going to sleep, and even then that’s a few hours away. I will do the usual stuff like get in my pyjama’s and brush my teeth but then I will make some tea (usually green tea even though I don’t even like it that much…) and then either pick out a book to start or continue with the one I am currently reading. If I am picking out a new one I usually inspect my shelf for a few minutes before I even figure out what genre I am in the mood to read. Right now specifically, I am into fantasy like Sarah J Maas’s books or Harry Potter but other times I am in the mood for light contemporaries or really anything else. Once I’ve picked out my book and finished getting ready for bed it is usually nine thirty so I will hop into bed and start reading! If it is a book I like I will read anywhere from 50-150 pages and stay up until past eleven but if it is a slower book I will read anywhere from 20-60 pages…Again, if it is a book I am really enjoying I will only stop once I can’t keep my eyes open which tends to be around midnight and then I finally put it down and go to bed. I also seem to have dreams corresponding with the book I read last which is always fun right?

That is my reading routine and I hope you liked it 🙂

Greek Gods Tag (original)

I love Greek Mythology so I decided to create a tag using the 12  Olympian gods + an extra goddess and god as questions! Hope you enjoy it and comment below your favourite of the gods 🙂 Mine is either Artemis, Athena or Apollo…

1. Zeus – Name a book that is the king of all the books on your shelf.

Zeus is the King of gods and is also the god of the sky and lightning, so for this one I am going to go with Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare because it is one of my favourite books ever, and the things is huge! It definitely triumphs by shelf.

2. Hera –  Name a character that seems sweet but is deadly.

Hera is the Queen of gods, along with the goddess of family but she can be quite…salty and evil sometimes. And for this one I am going to choose Juliette from Shatter Me because she can be really sweet but she is deadly because she can kill with her touch. Also, throughout the books she becomes less nice and more aggressive, thus revealing her deadly side even more.

3. Poseidon – Name a character that is pretty chill.

Poseidon is the god of the sea, earthquakes and horses and while sometimes he is extremely deadly, he tends to be quite calm and chill. So my answer for this one is Baz from Carry On for this one because he seems really relaxed and chill, and yes I know he is a vampire but his attitude is just like ‘I don’t care’ which gives me that ‘chil’ vibe I guess.

4. Hades – Name a book that is an outcast on your shelf.

Hades is the god of the underworld and of the dead and because of some reasons, he is also exiled from Olympus and being an outcast isn’t fun. My answer for this question I am definitely going to say The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancy for this one because I really didn’t enjoy it. It felt like a second book usually does in a trilogy (a place holder), and it didn’t meet my expectations at all. For that reason, it isn’t as welcomed on my shelf.

5. Athena – Name a character who always has a plan.

Athena is the goddess of wisdom and battle strategy and I really was tempted to say Annabeth Chase for this one but that would be cheating instead I am going to say Hermione Granger from Harry Potter because she usually has a somewhat concrete plan, but even if she didn’t have a plan she is smart enough to come up with something at least.

6. Artemis – Name a character that just does their own thing.

Artemis is twin sister of the god Apollo and is the goddess of the moon and the hunt that she runs where she and some other girls called hunters, swear off men and run around killing monsters, just doing their own thing which I think is cool. Right after I typed this question up, one character popped in my mind and that is Lola Nolan from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins because Lola has very spontaneous outfits and hairdos  and she doesn’t care if people look at her funny because that is just who she is.

7. Apollo – Name a book on your shelf that impressed you in multiple ways.

Apollo is the god of archery, medicine, the sun, music, etc, etc so he has lots of talents. For this question I am going to say An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir because this book was absolutely fantastic! The plot was incredibly dynamic, the characters really stood out, the problems were totally messed up and the relationships were amazing. Ugh, everything about this book was satisfying.

8. Aphrodite – Name a book on your shelf that has a beautiful cover.

Aphrodite is the goddess of love and beauty and there are some books that seemed to inherit some of that beauty from her. The one cover on my shelf that I think is one of the prettiest cover is Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi just because the covers with the eyes are just so fricking gorgeous! They all are in the trilogy but Ignite Me is definitely my favourite.

9. Ares – Name a thick headed character. (No offense to Ares)

Ares is the god of war so he probably isn’t the smartest god around but he definitely isn’t alone. Now I wouldn’t exactly say this character is extremely stupid or anything, but in the first book she didn’t make the smartest choices, and that is Mia from the Vampire Academy series. She just pulled some stupid stunts that were not smart at all.

10. Hestia – Name a book on your shelf that makes you feel at home.

Hestia is the goddess of the hearth and home and while she isn’t technically one of the 12 Olympians, she deserves to be in this tag, so this question is pretty straightforward, and my answer for it is City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I just adore this series so much and whenever I pick up the books I feel warm and happy.

11. Hermes –  Name a character you can never trust.

Hermes is the god of roads, travelers, thieves so naturally he isn’t the most trustworthy god. For my answer I chose Jacin Clay from Winter by Marissa Meyer because while he was trustworthy towards Winter, towards the other characters not so much. He did get better throughout the novel though.

12. Hephaestus – Name a character that is misunderstood.

Hephaestus, being the god of blacksmiths and fire doesn’t exactly seem like a warm and cuddly person but he is often misunderstood. So for my answer, I have chosen two characters because they both fit this question really well. Nico Di Angelo from the Percy Jackson and the Olympian series, and Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter because everyone sees them as what they look like on the outside, but on the inside they are different and more powerful then people know.

13. Dionysus –  Name a character you would party with any day.

Dionysus is the god of wine and partying so this seems like a fitting question. For this one I am going to have to say Percy Jackson from Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan just because Percy is a really fun and sarcastic person so I feel like it would be a good time being with him. Plus he can get people from Camp Half Blood to join us so it would be an even better party.

Hope you liked my original tag and if you would like to use this please give me credit but I would love to see your answers to these questions 🙂

 

Top 5 Favourite Villains

There are some pretty epic villains out there so I am going to be sharing my top 5 favourite villains! Comment your favourites below 🙂

Umbridge from Harry Potter is one of the nastiest villains ever. She is much worse than Voldemort because she is snotty, rude, evil and just has all the great qualities villains have.

Sebastian Morgenstern from The Mortal Instruments is amazing. He is sassy and evil and I love him so much, he is definitely one of my favourite villains out there. His story is so sad yet you hate him most of the time during the book because of all the truly evil and disgusting things he does.

Queen Levana from  The Lunar Chronicles is an epic villain. She has a terrible backstory that lets you know why she is the way she is but she takes everything way to far. Overall though she is an amazing villain and definitely had to make it on this list.

Gaea from The Heroes of Olympus series is also an amazing villain because she is freaking Mother Earth without the flowers in her hair and birds singing around her. She is down right nasty and she has no soft side whatsoever.

SPOILER FOR LADY MIDNIGHT AHEAD….

 

So I am hoping that if you haven’t read Lady Midnight you stopped reading and if you have then keep reading. I just don’t want to be responsible for spoiling you.

Malcom Fade from Lady Midnight was such a sweet and innocent characters that I thought was hilarious and then he turned out to be a freaking love driven villain! I was astounded that Cassandra Clare was able to do this to us but I guess I should underestimate her…ever again.

Those are my 5 favourite villains and I hope you enjoyed!

Top 10 Favourite Male Characters

I have read so many books with amazing characters in them so in this blog post I will be sharing with all of you my top 10 favourite male characters! (Check out my last blog post!)

10. Harry Potter from Harry Potter is number 10 on my list. He is just a super strong character, having lost all his blood related family and being the ‘chosen one’ and I just had to fit him somewhere on this list obviously.

9. Prince Maxon from The Selection is number 9 and you are probably wondering why I put him before Harry and that is because just for some reason I love Maxon so much. He is sweet, sensitive and caring and he puts up with all of America’s stubbornness.

8. Daemon Black from the Lux series is number 8 on my list and here is why: he is gorgeous. He is smoking and he always comes back with snarky remarks that make me melt.

7. Cricket Bell from Lola and the Boy Next Door is number 7 because Cricket is just so god damn nice and awkward and funny. I love him so much but it was still a really hard decision between him and Etienne but ugh Cricket is amazing and adorable.

6. Peeta Mellark from the Hunger Games is number 6 on this list because he is so nice and is always looking out for Katniss. He brings out the softer side in Katniss and for that I salute him.

5. Percy Jackson from Percy Jackson and the Olympians is number 5 because of his persassy skills. Percy was my first fictional crush and I just love his sass so he obviously made the list.

4. Leo Valdez from the Heroes of Olympus series is number 4 because all the ladies love Leo. Leo is the odd one out but he is so funny and he needs someone to love him (sorry Calypso) so I will happily take the job up.

3. Mark Blackthorn from Lady Midnight is number 3 and I don’t know why I love him so much! Well maybe its because he is handsome and hilarious…yeah. But I just loved reading about Mark in Lady Midnight and I cannot wait to see more, even if he can get a little…weird.

2. Julian Blackthorn from Lady Midnight…yeah another Cassandra Clare character but can you blame me?! So Julian may have some ‘fire’ inside him where he can get really overprotective and scary over the people he loves but that makes me love him more. Julian is just my bae honestly.

  1. Jace Herondale from The Mortal Instruments takes home the grand prize of being number 1 and I KNOW another Cassandra Clare character but I just love him. He’s sarcastic, sweet, hot and ugh he’s amazing.

So those are my top 10 favourite male characters and I AM SORRY for the last 3 being from just Cassie’s books but I can’t help it if she writes beautiful characters so easily. It was hard taking Will Herondale off the list…it was.
