It’s the best addiction, next to books that you could have! Come and join in.

Rules:

  • NIL. Link back to Aentee’s blog is appreciated but optional. Feel free to use her graphics. Tag people, don’t tag people, whatever. Just have fun!

TwilightI want to be cool and say Harry Potter or Percy Jackson… but that is not that case. I have been an on and off reader as a kid, but it wasn’t until Twilight came out that I started ravaging books like I do now. So Twilight is the book that I have to say started my love for reading. I mean, who didn’t love Twilight at the time? Don’t lie to yourselves, you’ve all read it at some point!

HP and the Goblet of FireThis is where Harry Potter comes in. I don’t care if it’s barely been 20 years since it has come out. I believe it deserves to be called a classic now. Sadly I have only read the first 4 books in this series… I know you’re judging me now. I was late getting my Hogwarts Letter, what can I say? My favorite so far is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! Such an EPIC book from beginning to end!

pokemon-tag-03-zubat

Red QueenI don’t usually fall off the hype train, but with Red Queen it definitely happened. This book was marketed EVERYWHERE! I couldn’t escape it. So I went out and bought it. I read Red Queen and I enjoyed it. Then a year later Glass Sword came out… and that was the hardest book to get through. Horrible characterization and boring plot. That is the point I jumped off the hype train.

pokemon-tag-04-ditto

Legacy of KingsI don’t usually get annoyed with book tropes as other readers might. So with Legacy of Kings I didn’t mind it. Legacy of Kings has a love triangle somewhat, there is a war that threatens to destroy an empire, insta-love, the ending leaves you wanting more, strong and smart female protagonist, etc. But guess what? The book is still amazing and everyone should be giving it a chance! Because I said so.

pokemon-tag-05-snorlax

A Game of Thrones-cough cough- The gargantuan series that is A Song of Ice and Fire. First off the shortest book in that series is 761 pages. I haven’t even read a book that large before. Second, George R.R. Martin is super old and he might not even finish the series before he bites the dust. Why start something that won’t get finished? I think I’ll wait and see. (Sorry is that is all morbid and insensitive)

pokemon-tag06-gengar

The Serpent KingSo can interpret this category as a book that was so horrifying that I couldn’t sleep at night, or a book that was just so good that I stayed up all night to read it. I will go with the latter and say The Serpent King. Normally I don’t stay up late to read, my sleep is precious to me. BUT with The Serpent King I couldn’t wait, I had to finish it. It was so good!

pokemon-tag07-nidokingqueen

Falling KingdomsMy ultimate OTP comes from my favorite book series Falling Kingdoms, and it is none other then Magnus and Cleo. They were enemies, turned arranged marriage, turned enemies, turned blossoming love, turned torn apart etc. They have had so many ups and downs it’s hard to keep up, but I love it! My second favorite OTP I just want to add in there is also from Falling Kingdoms, and that is Nic and Ashur. Those boys make my heart flutter and I can’t wait to see how their relationship develops!

pokemon-tag08-rapidash

Court of FivesA recent read of mine was Court of Fives. Although the plot wasn’t quite clear and it felt more like a build up novel, I loved the character’s and their growth. There is so much potential with this series and I can’t wait to find out what happens next with Jess and Kal. I could not put this book done. It was super face paced with the whole book happening over a span of a week I believe. It was awesome!

pokemon-tag09-eevee

Falling KingdomsI know you guys are probably sick of reading about my favorite series, Falling Kingdoms. BUT I can say that I will never get sick of seeing more sequels or spin offs for this series. It is already a 6 book series with a 3 book trilogy spin off. But I am hoping that is not where things end for my little world of Mytica. I NEED MORE! (And look at that German cover… so beautiful!)

pokemon-tag14-magikarp

Storm SirenI am quite surprised how good the Storm Siren Trilogy was. I really enjoyed the world and story building from this series. The characters were lively, strong willed, and badass. The powers were cool, and the villain was completely evil, not a good bone in his body. I definitely recommend this series to anyone who wants to start out in the fantasy genre!

pokemon-tag12-legendary

Empire of StormsNo one can say they haven’t heard of the Throne of Glass series. It’s such a big deal in the YA book community. You either love it or hate, or hate to love it. The hype train is still going with this one as we await Empire of Storms to be released in September. With the way that the story is going, I am still very excited to read this series! I need more sexy angst!

pokemon-tag15mew-mewtwo

Ravenclaw Book Covers.pngWho doesn’t wish they owned more Harry Potter editions? I sure do! I’m totally going to steal this answer from Aentee because I didn’t even know I could get an exclusive Hogwarts House edition. All 7 books with your favorite Hogwarts House covers. Gimme gimme gimme the Ravenclaw Editions please!

pokemon-tag10-egg

Boy RobotI am super excited for Boy Robot to come out in November. I have been seeing a lot of good buzz around this book. And following the author of Twitter is pretty amazing and entertaining. For those of you who may not have heard of this book please go check it out and Good Reads!

pokemon-tag11-lure-module

Red RisingNormally I would say Morgan Rhodes… but I want to flip the switch a little bit. I will hands done auto buy anything that Pierce Brown puts out there. I loved the Red Rising series and I am super excited for Iron Gold next year! I even went out and funded his Kickstarter for Red Rising merch. I got a House Mars T-shirt and 3 Red Rising pins and some cool maps. Pierce is going to make me broke!

pokemon-tag13-server-down

WarcrossSo far I have only had to wait a year between book releases. So I don’t have to wait too long. But I can say that I am looking forward to Marie Lu’s new series coming out in 2017 titled Warcross. So far there is no cover yet, or a release date for that matter. So I can say that I am highly anticipating this book release!


Well there you have it. The Pokemon GO Book Tag. How obsessed with this game are you? I go out of my way to play daily. I even ride my bike around just to catch Pokemon! That is dedication I tell you! So come and join in on this fun Pokemon Go inspired Tag created by Aentee!

I TAG YOU

Characters That Got on my Nerves | Top 10 Tuesday [#36]

TOP-10-TUESDAY-NEW

Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday weekly fun on my blog! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This week’s topic is Top 10 Characters That Got on my Nerves.

*** THIS IS MY OPINION: DO NOT HATE ON ME FOR IT ***

So we have all read books where we didn’t like or could really care less for a certain character. A lot of the times it happens to be the main character or active love interest. And now by no means am I saying that the author who wrote them is garbage because some of these characters come from some of my favorite books, what I am saying is that I honestly did not like them. So let the haters gonna hate begin!


10. Myles from Storm Siren

Storm Siren

Reasons Why:
  • He was beyond creepy
  • Could never tell if he was good or bad

 


9. Eleanor from Eleanor and Park

Eleanor and Park

Reasons Why:
  • She whined too much
  • No major character growth

 


 

8. Mare from The Red Queen

Red Queen

Reasons Why:
  • Thought she was the Queen of the world
  • Played up her Special Snowflake status constantly

 


7. Clary from the City of Bones

City of Bones

Reasons Why:
  • Boring and dull
  • Couldn’t see why everyone loved her in the book

 


6. Cinder from Cinder

Cinder

Reasons Why:
  • Again boring and dull
  • No extraordinary character growth

 


5. Lorelai from The Shadow Queen

The Shadow Queen

Reasons Why:
  • Not likeable
  • Generic and boring

 


4. Ianthe from A Court of Mist and Fury

 

A Court of Mist and FuryReasons Why:
  • Professional manipulator
  • Two-faced!

 


3. Lucia from Falling Kingdoms

Frozen Tides

Reasons Why:
  • Generic and boring
  • Not likeable


2. Chaol from Throne of Glass

Throne of Glass

Reasons Why:
  • Snoozefest
  • Lacks depth

 


1. Mal from Shadow and Bone

Shadow and Bone

Reasons Why:

Sorry I Don’t Love Them | Top 10 Tuesday [#29]

TOP-10-TUESDAY-NEW

Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday weekly fun on my blog! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This week’s topic is Top 10 Characters Everyone Loves But I Don’t.

I love having unpopular opinions. It makes me unique and sets me apart from other book lovers! So I apologize if I dislike a character you like. It’s nothing personal… it’s just that they suck. Simple.


10. Peeta from the Hunger Games

Peeta

He was a bore to read. Complete snoozefest.


9. Jace from the Mortal Instruments

Jace

Hot as he may be… he was no Alec/Magnus.


8. Rhys from A Court of Thorns and Roses

Rhys

I couldn’t stand how he treated Feyre. It was so uncomfortable to read.


7. Chaol from Throne of Glass

Chaol again

Whine, whine, whine. That’s all he does!


6. Maven from Red Queen

Maven

For reasons I will not disclose.


5. Day from Legend

Day

No sympathies for him. Don’t see how he was the face of a revolution!


4. Draco from Harry Potter

Draco

He was cruel to my favorite character Hermoine. So it’s obvious where my loyalties lie.


3. Cinder from Lunar Chronicles

Cinder

No emotional attachment to her at all… mediocre character.


2. Alina from Shadow and Bone

ALina

Not my favorite heroine. I wouldn’t have minded if the series only revolved around Nikolai and the Darkling!


1. Celaena from Throne of Glass

Celaena

This is pre-Aelin days. She was a mess.


Well there you have it! Top 10Characters Everyone Loves But I Don’t. Do you agree with my choices? What popular characters do you not like?

Until next time,

Book Boyfriend Tag | Books at Dawn

Book-Boyfriend-Tag

Hey guys!

I was tagged by Deanna from A Novel Glimpse to do the Fictional Boyfriend Tag which I decided to rename to the Book Boyfriend Tag, because that is what I like to call them. I have many of them. If you haven’t checked out Deanna’s blog please do so now, she tags me for the best tags!


Most Romantic Boyfriend

Baz “Carry On” & Nikolai “Siege and Storm”

I don’t read many romance centered novels, so if I had to choose I would choose these two characters for the simple fact that they would be the most believable romantic types. Plus they are both rich, and money talks! HAHA

Falling Kingdoms

Dark and Moody Bad Boy with a Good Side

Magnus Damora “Falling Kingdoms”

He is extremely dark and moody with morally amobious tendecies. BUT when it comes down to it (especially with Cleo) he has a very good side to him. Why do I always go for the bad boys?

The Bane Chronicles

Paranormal Boyfriend

Magnus Bane “The Mortal Instruments”

He is the high warlock of Brooklyn, super old and wise, sexy as hell, and has the coolest magic powers. What’s not to like?

A Court of Thorns and Roses

Boyfriend You Want to Tame

Tamlin “A Court of Thorns and Roses”

He is the beast of the story. He is rough around the edges, but super sexy and sweet towards Feyre (sometimes). So I most certainly want to tame this beast!

Red Queen

Boy You Friend Zoned

Maven “Red Queen”

He was bae in the beginning. Super sweet and kind. The good boyfriend type. But by the end I had to friend zone him for reasons I’m not allowed to say. (I actually don’t even want him to be my friend either)

Heir of Fire

Your Soul Mate

Rowan “Heir of Fire”

That sexy fae of a man! I know deep down that we are meant to be together. Sorry Aelin, but you’re just the appetizer! HAHA

Six of Crows

Boyfriend You Want to Elope With

Kaz Brekker “Six of Crows”

Yeah that’s right. Another bad boy. And this time I want to elope with him, because if Inej finds out I wouldn’t be surprise if she sneaks up and slits my throat.

Red Rising

Boyfriend You’d Venture Anywhere With

Darrow of Lykos “Red Rising”

I would go across the galaxy and back if Darrow was at my side. One, for the protection and two, because of his lyrical way of speaking! *swoons*

City of Bones

Boyfriend You’d Want to Be Stranded on a Deserted Island With

Alec Lightwood “The Mortal Instruments”

Not because he is the second half of one of my OTP’s, and not because he is portrayed by the sexy Matthew Daddario on the TV show. BUT because he has an extensive knowledge in survival, and I do not. (Now if it is Matthew with me on this island, there will be touching involved HAHA)

Gathering Darkness

Most Badass Boyfriend

Ashur Cortas “Gathering Darkness”

Due to spoilers I can’t really explain this one. BUT if you can achieve what he does in this series then you’re automatically a badass bae!


I TAG YOU

Hey guys!
