Today’s theme is Top Ten Characters That Would Make Great Leaders. I chose to keep leader in a general way.

  • Lila Bard from the Shades Of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab. She is fearless and hotheaded at the beginning but she surely learned from her mistakes and is totally able to lead a team or even a country !
  • Kestrel from The Winner’s trilogy by Marie Rutkoski. She is calm and has a cunning mind, perfect for politics. But she is also true to her heart.
  • Zuzana from the Daughter Of Smoke And Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor. She is fierce and always gets what she wants !

  • Dorian from the Throne Of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Cool tempered and far from being a hot head. The perfect ruler !
  • Alec Lightwood from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Calm, he knows how to analyze a situation.
  • Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
  • Adrian from the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead. Well, not at the beginning of the series, obviously hahahaha !

TOP TEN TUESDAY

Hello lovelies ! It’s that time again ! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish !

Today’s theme is Top Ten Books That Feature Characters _______. I decided to make my top ten around strong female characters.

Let’s start !

  • Celaena Sardothien from the Throne Of Glass series. She is a fierce and skilled warrior and isn’t afraid of sacrificing herself for the ones she loves.
  • Karou from A Daughter Of Smoke And Bone trilogy. She lost a lot and yet she keeps fighting to save the world.
  • Feyre from A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Maas. She is such a badass character from the beginning of the first book and she keeps fighting fiercely no matter what !
  • Lila from the Shades Of Magic trilogy. Oh little Lila, you are far from being a fragile thing ! Deadly, that’s what she is !
  • Emma Carstairs from The Dark Artifices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. I am currently reading the second book, Lord Of Shadows and she is amazing ! She is so ready to give up everything to assure the Blackthorns security and happiness. No matter how harsh the consequences can be for her.
  • Vin from the Mistborn trilogy. From transparent to a powerful allomancer ! She is unbelievable.
  • Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series. Let’s be honest, this top ten couldn’t exist without her !
  • Claire Beauchamps from the Outlander series. She is a warrior of her own ! Gifted with herbal medicine, she becomes an ally to the Mackenzie clan.
  • Lily from It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover. She is a different kind of badass. Not a warrior, she isn’t a fantasy heroin, but she is a hero nonetheless. I won’t say more because I don’t want to spoil anyone.

That’s it ! My Top Ten is a Top Eight ! I hope you enjoyed it ! What’s on your top ten this week ?

| TAGS & CHALLENGES | THIS IS MY GENRE, TELL ME YOURS BOOK TAG

thisismtgenrenrwlogo

Hello lovelies !! I know I haven’t posted this last week ! I am so sorry but I was so exhausted that I haven’t been able to blog when I went home after work. Anyway, a few months Kat from Lifeandotherdisasters tagged me to do the This is my genre, tell me yous book tag.
Let’s start this !

polka-dots-bar-small

THE RULES:

  • Credit the bad, bad  Drew @TheTattooedBookGeek as the creator of the tag, use the created tag name graphic and link back to his blog.
  • Answer the questions.
  • Tag as many people as you want.
  • No long list, simple really!

polka-dots-bar-small

1. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE GENRE ?

Well it’s very difficult to narrow it to one genre but based on the books I’ve read, I’d say Fantasy.

2. WHO’S YOUR FAVOURITE AUTHOR FROM THE GENRE ?

Also difficult to narrow it to just one author. So here is my top 3 !
V.E. Schwab, Cassandra Clare and Sarah J. Maas !

3. WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE GENRE THAT KEEPS PULLING YOU BACK ?

I do enjoy reading contemporary books too but there’s a special thing about Fantasy. My mind is entirely elsewhere. I am fully immersed in the book’s world and that’s such an amazing experience ! It’s… addicting. It’s difficult to put this feeling into words !

4. WHAT’S THE BOOK THAT STARTED YOUR LOVE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE GENRE ?

I used to love Buffy The Vampire Slayer (still does !) and there were a lot of books. I’ve owned (and therefore read) like 40 of these. I think they are some of my firsts fantasy books.

5. IF YOU HAD TO RECOMMEND AT LEAST ONE BOOK FROM YOUR FAVOURITE GENRE TO A NON-READER/SOMEONE LOOKING TO START READING THAT GENRE, WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY ?

a darker shade of magic

A Darker Shade Of Magic by V.E. Schwab ! It’s such an innovative fantasy book !
It’s original, brilliant, quirky, and so well written !
It’s the first book of a trilogy and I can only recommend to read these 3 books because I know they’re totally worth it ! It’s an adult book, not a Young Adult one but I think everyone can read it and appreciate it !

6. WHY DO YOU READ ?

That’s my own bubble of happiness. I love my life, don’t get me wrong. But I enjoying spending time on my own, reading a good book while sipping tea or coffee. It’s relaxing and helps me to turn off my brain, you know ?

Plus, I don’t live just one life. I’m living a thousand ones !

| MEMES | TOP TEN TUESDAY – TOP TEN BOOKS THAT WILL MAKE YOU READ THE WHOLE DAY AWAY

top-ten-tuesdayHello everyone ! It’s that time again ! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish.

Today theme is : top ten books that will make you read the whole day away !

The most obvious picks for that TTT are romance books. They are, in my opinion, quick reads but also you can’t help yourself but want to know EVERYTHING.
So, the whole After series by Anna Todd is one of these books. SO gripping, I was literally obsessed with his story ! It was unputdownable !
Anna And The French Kiss and the two companions novels by Stephanie Perkins. I adored these books and it was so difficult to put them down !
The Rusk University series by Cora Carmack. Same deal haha !
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West. Such a cute and gripping story !

But they are also fantasy series that can fit in that TTT. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling of course being the most evident one.
The Throne Of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas is another amazing series that is captivating !!
The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare totally had this effect on me. I was living, breathing and eating among Jem, Tesssa and Will.
The Six Of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo is another perfect example ! So gripping ! And it reminds me… I still need to write my reviews for these two books… ahem.

The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer is another series that comes to my mind for this week’s topic.
And there’s also the Shades Of Magic series by V. E. Schwab. I adore these books and I can’t wait to finally get my copy ! My preorder never arrived…

That’s it ! I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday ! Have you read any of these books ?
