I am catching up on the last four weeks as I have missed them all! Wish me luck.
Five Favourite Blogs
Amanda over at Book Badger had to make the list. For one thing she is the reason that I am even making this post. But she also has one of the greatest blogs and I love checking in a few times a week to see her posts. She has the perfect mix of reviews, memes, discussions and original posts.
I love Notebook sisters. Every post of theirs manages to make me smile. They use great gifs and their reviews always get me giggling. This is another blog that I like to check a few times a week so that I don't miss any of their great posts.
[YA] Escape From Reality
I really love the discussion posts that [YA] Escape From Reality, they are always great fun and always get me thinking. I love posting my own answer but also reading everyone elses.
Flip That Page
I want to mention Flip That Page because it has so many great book surveys that you can take part in... and I love a good book survey. I always want to take part but then I never manage to get the time. One of these days I will get there.
The Broke and the Bookish
THEY GAVE ME TOP TEN TUESDAY! Do I need to say more? I love TTT, I have found soooo many new books that way.
Reading Is Fun Again
Five Favourite Couples
Ron & Hermione
ALWAYS! Hermione and Ron were just meant to be together and I never saw anything else. I feel like Hermione and Harry was never a possibility...ever! They were always just the best of friends and I loved that. But Ron and Hermione were always meant to be more to me and I will ship those two forever. Harry & Ginny on the other hand... what the actual hell?!? Going after your best friends little sister... naughty!
Callum & Sephy
Oh how I love and adore Noughts & Crosses. It's just such an amazing book and is still one of my all time favourite books. It provided me with one of my favourite couples ever, Callum & Sephy who grow up as best friends before falling in love. But this book was so much more than a love story and it literally broke me. That book still makes me sob.
Aria & Perry
I absolutely loved Under the Never Sky and the whole series is amazing. Aria & Perry quickly became one of my favourite couples, I just adore those two.
Samantha & Jace
This book was just too much. I am pretty much, 100% certain that I fell in love with Jace Garrett myself, which is a real shame considering the fact that he is entirely fictional. *sigh* If you haven't read My Life Next Door you really need to go do it... NOW!
Maya & Lochan
I can't help it... I just love them. Did I mention they're brother & sister...
Sorry not sorry.
Five Favourite Heroines
Let's be honest, Hermione is amazing. She's smart, she beats the guys at everything, she's funny and I adore her. I love that she was one of the guys and that without her Harry & Ron would most likely be dead, or failing at Hogwarts.
Katniss is brilliant, I mean, the girl survived the Hunger Games twice. I would blatantly be one of the first to die in that situation and there she is, kicking-ass, taking names and being all cool with a bow and sh*t. I am clearly very, very, very jealous. And to top if all off she gets Peeta, even though she's completely miserable. Go Katniss!
I really do recommend the Noughts & Crosses series, it's one of my favourites. I always loved Sephy as a character because she was flawed and she made mistakes. She fights hard for what she believes in and she goes through a whole lot over the course of that series.
I may just use the same books and people over and over again. I am really picky and always come back to my favourites. I only read Under the Never Sky a little while ago but I really fell in love with the series. The book could do no wrong and the characters were all brilliant. Aria is a great heroine because she goes through such a big change and becomes a much better person because of it. Plus there is one scene where she kicks a characters ass that really deserved it and I loved her for it!
Do wolves count? Well I am not sure if they do but I am totally going to pick one anyway because I am such a rebel. But, on a more serious note, I read this first when I was a kid and can still reread The Sight even now. It's told from the perspective of wolves and it is utter genius. Larka is a great heroine even if she is an animal and that girl made me feel so many feels it is unreal. Gah this book makes me want to cry just thinking about it.
Five Favourite First Books In A Series
I am ashamed of myself; I almost completely forgot about Northern Lights. I really want to amend my above answer and have Lyra on the list because she is one of my favourite book heroines! But... I am really lazy and it's getting late.
Harry Potter is my favourite series of all time. I grew up reading those books and I say it all the time but it provided me with the best childhood... EVER! Noughts & Crosses is just epic and breaks my heart every time I read it. Under the Never Sky totally blew me away and became a favourite instantly. And The Hunger Games.... it's an easy choice because it's sooo friggin' epic.
Okay... that's everything!
