This time, I decided to pick my favorite HP book instead of choosing the whole series. This edition’s cover is fantastic!


2.The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

This definitely has to be on here 🙂 Apparently it’s considered Sci-Fi. Not sure how I didn’t know that.


3. The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)

I love this series to bits so far!! I’m close to done with The Dream Thieves now 🙂


4. Divergent by Veronica Roth

Still haven’t brought myself to read the conclusion to this series. From what I’ve heard, I’m making a good choice.


5. The Warriors series by Erin Hunter

This series was so intense for me when I was a child and young teen.


That’s a wrap! This topic definitely made me realize I need to dive into Fantasy and Sci-Fi more. I literally had to put a children’s fantasy book. What are your favorite fantasy and sci-fi books? Do you have any suggestions for me? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5W!

Top 5 Wednesday (#4)|Book Trends

Hey everyone! It’s time for another Top 5 Wednesday. This weekly meme is hosted by gingerreadslainey and Sam @ Thoughts On Tomes. Both of these wonderful ladies have video book blogs. Go check them out! To find out more information, future topics and more, go visit the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s post will have examples of the topic.

February 8th: Book Trends You’re Tired Of
— What are some things you are tired of seeing that are trends in publishing? Maybe something that pops up on a lot of covers these days, or the popularity of certain tropes in a particular genre? Let it out!

I’m particularly tired of seeing random people on book covers. It wouldn’t be as much of a problem if the people actually looked like the main character(s). That’s only in a perfect world. Here are some examples:

Paper Towns

De Hongerspelen (De Hongerspelen, #1)(The Hunger Games)

Bajo la misma estrella

 

 

 

 

 

 

(The Fault In Our Stars)

 

Do wszystkich chłopców, których kochałam (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)(To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before)

Oddam ci słońce(I’ll Give You The Sun)


That’s a wrap! What are some book trends you’re tired of? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5Ws!

Top 5 Wednesday (#3)|Polarizing Books

 

Hey everyone! It’s time for Top 5 Wednesday! Let me know whether or not you’re enjoying this weekly meme! Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by gingerreadslainey and Sam @ Thoughts On Tomes. Both of these lovely ladies have video blogs on YouTube. It’s definitely worth checking out! To find out more information, future topics and more, go visit the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s topic is:

These are books that people either tend to love or hate, with no in between. Pick some of your favorites that fall into this category.


Top 5 Polarizing Books:

1. The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling

Image result for harry potter series

With this series, either you’re a Potterhead or not. To me, there’s no “partial fans”


2. The Fault In Our Stars By John Green

The Fault in Our Stars

Either you’re against the “romanticized and repetitive cancer theme” or you’re in love with Hazel and Gus’s tear jerking romance.


3. Paper Towns by John Green

Paper Towns

Some think the story is boring. Others get drawn into the adventure. To me, there’s no in between.


4. Fans Of The Impossible Life by Kate Scelsa

Fans of the Impossible Life

Some are drawn into the crazy friendship. Others are thrown off by the inappropriate and strange themes. My recent review/rant will tell you where I stand on this.


5. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Twilight (Twilight, #1)

I’m cheating the topic a bit by putting this book. I actually haven’t read it. Twilight came to mind anyway when I read this week’s topic. It’s definitely a book that you either deeply hate or a few enjoy. There’s no in between!


That’s a wrap! Do you agree with my picks? What books would be/are on your list?

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5W!

Top 5 Wednesday (#2)| New Years Eve Party

Hey everyone! It’s time for the new meme for Wednesday on this blog. There wasn’t too much response on whether or not you guys enjoyed this. I did so I will continue 🙂 Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by gingerreadslainey and Sam @ Thoughts On Tomes. Both of these lovely ladies have YouTube blogs as opposed to regular ones like this one. To find out more information, future topics and more, visit the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s topic is the last one for the year. It is New Year’s based.

Characters You’d Invite to Your New Year’s Eve Party
Pretty self explanatory. Who would you want to your NYE bash and why?

top-5-wednesdays


Characters I’d Invite To My NYE Bash:

1. Hagrid- Harry Potter

Can you imagine how fantastic the party would be with Hagrid there? He would be hilarious and the life of the party 😀

2. Dumbledore-Harry Potter

Dumbledore would make the party amazing! He seems like he would be the quiet person that occasionally says things that make everyone laugh.

3. Kitty-To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

She’s a kid but always entertains me. She’d be the one trying and possibly succeeding in making everyone laugh.

4. Levi-Fangirl

Levi would be the type of person making sure everyone is having a good time. He’s such a nice guy that would really add life to my party.

5. Effie Trinket-The Hunger Games

Effie is so strange and unique. She’d probably be the one everyone is enthralled by but also scared of.

That’s a wrap! I would definitely invite more than these five. These are just the ones that randomly came to mind. I only did two Harry Potter characters. I’m glad the list has some variety. Who would you invite to your New Year’s Eve Bash? Let me know who and why!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5W!
