Top 3 Book Boyfriends!

Seeing as I always share quotes from my many book boyfriends, I thought that I would change it up a little bit and share which boyfriends I love the most! Narrowing down my abundance of book boyfriends to just 3 proved to be a lot harder than I thought it would be though. XD


1. Daemon Black (From the LUX series by Jennifer L. Armentrout)

Anybody who has been reading my posts for awhile knows that Daemon is my favorite book boyfriend. Well, he’s not just my favorite, he’s THE book boyfriend haha. I love him SOOO much! I even loved him in the beginning when he was an arrogant jerk. Because he was still the really sexy alien living next door. And he was witty.  And he always had Katy’s best interest at heart. And he called her Kitten. And later on in the series, he showed how sweet he was and proved to be the best boyfriend ever. I love him.

 

 

2. Levi (From Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell)

While reading Fangirl, I fell for Levi immediately. He easily takes the cake for being the sweetest guy ever. I love how he always made sure that Cath wouldn’t try and walk back to her dorm alone at night and how he was always there when she needed him. He really gave Cath the confidence boost that she needed and deserved and helped her come out of her shell. And he loved her love for books and writing! And she would read him books! PERFECTION!

3. Julian Blackthorn (From City of Heavenly Fire and Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare)

Julian. Whew, where do I start with Julian? Jules is amazing. He carries the world on his shoulders. He takes care of everything so that no one else has to worry. And he’s basically raised all of his siblings. He just cares so much about the people he loves and he takes devotion to a new level. And he says some of the most beautiful and breath taking things. How could you not love him?


SO, those are my top 3 book boyfriends! Be sure to tell me who some of your book boyfriends are!

Moving

My family and I are currently in the process of moving. Moving brings nothing but stress and craziness, and I hate everything to do with it.

I wanted to take a minute to make this post to say that over the duration of this move, I am not going to be able to blog very frequently.   I will not have access to  Wi-Fi all the time, and I will be super busy. Because of the Wi-Fi situation and the fact that  we will not have our stuff back for a few weeks, I have nothing to do but read. Which is probably the only good thing about moving.

Then again, all my books are packed and I only had room to keep six books with me.  So, I can’t read my books too fast, or I will end up not having anything left to read. Which would be horrible!  But, I haven’t started reading any of those books  because I have only been reading e-books over the last week and a half.

I also wanted to use this post to update everyone on my reading. I have been addicted to the Rock Royalty series, and I am about to start book 6, Wild Child.  I did a review for the first book, Light My Fire, but I have decided that I am not going to do reviews for books 2-6.  I feel like I would just be reiterating, and I have been reading them so fast back-to-back. However, I do plan to do a collective review that includes my feelings and thoughts about all of the books.  I will include what my favorite book of the series was, which was my least favorite, and things like that. I also want to have a post talking about which books I chose to take with me. But, who knows what will end up happening!

That’s going to be all for now. I hope all of you are having a great weekend so far!

Feeling Slumpy

I am currently in a reading slump from the depths of hell. I haven’t been able to read at all. If you are a reader, you understand that this is the worst thing ever. I am writing this post just to let all of you know that this is why I haven’t posted any book reviews this month.

I have been trying to shake this reading slump by rereading some of my favorite parts from some of my favorite books like Oblivion, Carry On and Glass Sword. I’ve also tried just giving myself a break and picking up books at random until something sticks. But all to no avail. I am still stuck in a slump. UGH.

I am going to keep trying to read until this reading slump eventually ends. Hopefully it will end soon. But I just wanted to say that I am really sorry that I haven’t posted any book reviews lately!

My Favorite Series

I just shared a list of my favorite books so I thought it would be fun to now share my favorite series! This is just going to be a list of my top 5 favorites but there are many, many more. Let me know if we share any of these favorites, and if not tell me what yours are!

1. The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I know I have been talking about these books endlessly but seriously they are the BEST books EVER. If you have not read them yet, do it. NOW! Here is the synopsis for the first book, Obsidian.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

 

2. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

This is an obvious answer that should be on everyone’s list of favorite series. This series started SO much. It instilled a love of books in kids (myself included) and started a phenomenon with the books and the movies. Just in case you somehow have not read this series yet, here is the synopsis for the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone.

Goodreads synopsis:

Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy. He lives with his Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley, who are mean to him and make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. (Dudley, however, has two bedrooms, one to sleep in and one for all his toys and games.) Then Harry starts receiving mysterious letters and his life is changed forever. He is whisked away by a beetle-eyed giant of a man and enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reason: Harry Potter is a wizard! The first book in the “Harry Potter” series makes the perfect introduction to the world of Hogwarts.

 

3. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

I loved this series infinitely more then The Mortal Instruments and ended up wondering what to do with my life after I finished the series. Here is the synopsis for the first book, Clockwork Angel.

Goodreads Synopsis:

In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them…

And if you have already read the series, did you love Will or Jem more??? Have you read the manga adaptations???

 

4. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

The books that started the Shadowhunter adventures! (Have you watched the TV show yet?!?) Here is the synopsis for the first book, City of Bones.

Goodreads synopsis:

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

 

5. The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa

This series has been one of my favorites for years. My favorite part of this series really is the world and lore. I fell in love with this series immediately and still love it. Here is the synopsis for the first book, The Iron King.

Goodreads synopsis:

Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth – that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil, no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

And if you have finished series, have you read the spin off series in Ethan’s POV??? Here is the synopsis for the first book, The Lost Prince.

Goodreads synopsis:

Don’t look at Them.
Never let Them know
you can see Them.

That is Ethan Chase’s unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he’d dare to fall for.

Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister’s world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.

My name is Ethan Chase.
And I may not live to see my
eighteenth birthday.
