TTT // Top 10 Character Names I’d Give Whatever I Could Name (from books)

Alright, I have a small list of loved names on my phone, so I was pretty excited when I saw this one.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is “Ten Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc. After”!

I don’t think I’d be able to choose who or what I’d use each name on… I like them all enough that I could name a pet or car or something after each one.

So here is my list in no certain order!

=====

1. Kestrel

This one is from The Winner’s trilogy. I’ve only read the 1st book, but I adored her name. I didn’t immediately know it was the name of a bird until it was mentioned. But I just really like the sound of it. I also find her to be a tough character after reading The Winner’s CurseContinue reading TTT // Top 10 Character Names I’d Give Whatever I Could Name (from books)

TTT // Top 10 Books I Read Because I Was Told To

Happy Tuesday, folks! I can’t do them every week, but I’m back with another installment of Top Ten Tuesday!

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. And this week’s topic? All About Books You Read Because of Recommendations.

Now, if you are a bookworm, you tend to have bookworm friends. I do. And from them, as well as any from fellow bloggers/bookish community members, I have created my list of 10. (Past and present book people.)

So let’s get to it.

TTT // Top 10 Recent Song Obsessions (obsess with me!)

This week’s session of Top Ten Tuesday is anything audio! Audiobooks? Sure. Don’t wanna talk about books? Talk music, podcasts, bands, whatever!

TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

As you can see from the title, I am just going to share some of my current favorite songs. I don’t have an all-time favorite song, so it changes as I discover. I have a few favorite bands, but not enough to make 10…

(I’ve actually been trying to find books to connect to with these songs or some other way to share them with all you worms out there (and other viewers), so this was the perfect excuse!)

So let’s jump right in (no favorites here):

TTT // Top 10 Books of X Genre – Fantasy Edition!

Welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

This weeks theme allows everyone to choose their own genres and create a top 10. I chose a pretty general one, but not as general as it could be!

I chose fantasy! (I know this’ll probably be a common one.)

These books may also have overlapping genres, like paranormal, but as long as fantasy or urban fantasy is a focus, we good.

Let’s do this! It ended up being 11…

(These aren’t in any order of favorites. I recommend all of them!)

TTT // Top 10 Anime and TV Shows

Welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday! This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The bookish. This weeks theme is…*drum rool*

Anything relating to TV shows!

Really, anything. So It’ll be fun seeing what people decide to do. Mine is basic because I don’t actually watch that much TV (and have recently hit a huge anime slump!). So I’m just doing my Top Ten anime and TV shows! Now, I’m really bad at picking favorites. So I don’t like any of these a ton more than the others on the list. And I might have more than 10.

Let’s get to it:


1. GAME OF THRONES

OMG, I just started this a few months ago and I LOVE IT. I have watch seasons 1-5, just waiting on season 6. Do I have favorite characters? YES. I love Ned Stark, Daenerys, Tyrion, JON SNOW and his luscious locks:

TTT // Unread TBR Books Since Before Blogging

:: OK, this is gonna be shorter than normal TTT posts for me. School just started, so I didn’t have time to finish any other posts I had planned, so this is a quick one. But I still wanted to participate a little… ::

TOP TEN TUESDAY is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Today’s theme is in the title: do I have books still unread since before blogging??

I’m sure 90% of the bookworm bloggers do…

But I kind of cheated on this one! I also have a terrible memory and I only just made a Goodreads account several months ago, so I only just started keeping track of my TBR and whatnot.

=====

I definitely bought these just before blogging, though, and still haven’t read them:

TTT // 10 Books I’d Buy Right This Second If I Had A Fully Loaded Gift Card

OMG, I WISH I DID HAVE A FULLY LOADED GIFT CARD *breathes heavily*

I currently have a $20 one and am still trying to decide what to buy… I also worry I won’t like new ones after I’ve bought them…

The title says it all, folks. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish wherein us bloggers discuss the themed topic!

This is one I think EVERY bookworm can do, yeah?

I wish I was wealthy for the sole purpose of buying books. But most of us must fight our way to money made for purchasing beautiful blocks of paper and words (that we can sniff to our heart’s content).

Seriously, I’ve always bought and wanted to buy books over clothes, any day. (Yes, those words are clickable. Do it – it’s amusing.)

Without further ado… (the pictures are linked to Goodreads)

Lady Midnight

I still have only read the first 3 of TMI and I own TID, but that’s my TBR for August… So I’m behind. But I love the shadowhunting world and cannot wait to continue exploring. I’ve been seeing some amazing reviews and comments for it. Sounds like it has so superb characters, too.

TTT // Top 10 Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About

Another Top Ten Tuesday post!

TTT was created by the Broke and the Bookish and this weeks theme is……*drum roll*…

Actually, I put it in the title, so….surprise! Top Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do or Learn About After Reading Them! This one sounds so fun to me. Granted, I have to think back to everything books have piqued my interest toward, which took some time, but I did it!

Let’s just get right to it, then!


1. Travel

This will probably be a common one, but books really do make you want to travel! For example, after reading the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by the magnificent Laini Taylor, I want to go to Prague SO. BADLY. That place is next on my list, whenever that may be… And the UK after reading books set there.

And even fantasy books make me want to travel, but to the hidden places – beautiful forests, old ruins, caverns, etc. I just want to find magical places.

TTT // 10 Facts About Me!

Facts?? About ME?? There has always been discord between me and that… But it can also be fun sometimes. It’s hard for me to think up personal facts, so this took some time.

But what a nice way to get to know me! 

TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish – just a (top) ten countdown (or however many you got) for general or bookish topics!

I don’t have 10 bookish facts, but I’ll do general facts.

New Thing! // TOP TEN TUESDAY

Hey there, worms (of books)!

So I notice lots of people doing Top Ten Tuesday posts on their book blogs and wondered where that was coming from! I figured it out! It’s a weekly meme from Broke and Bookish. And I decided I’d like to try it. I know I won’t be able to participate in all of them due to not having experience in the topic or some such. But this one, I can do! This week’s theme is Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half Of The Year.

These are some books I’m really looking forward to trying! They aren’t in any particular order, so it’s not most anticipated to least or anything.


Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Oh, my gosh, so Laini Taylor writes and creates such wonderful tales. Now, I have only read Blackbringer and the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series from her, but I loved them. I read the prologue for this and it is beautiful. So I’m really curious what this book contains and can’t wait to read it! Gah.
