Top Ten Favorite Books + Diamonds are Forever Release||October 27

Top Ten Tuesday

Sorry I wasn’t able to post yesterday, I had too many things I wanted to do and not enough time to do them all. So, to make up for yesterdays post, I’m going to post on Thursday. P.S. today is my double, non-halloween related posts.

My Top Ten Favorite Books:

1. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout.


For those who have never read this book, you have to go and get it. It is brilliantly amazing. Jennifer’s books are beyond amazing and everyone needs to go buy them. I’ve read the whole Lux series and I swear, all of your emotions will be swirling around in your mind when you finish the series. Now, I’ll stop ranting and tell you a bit about the book. Katy Swartz, a book loving blogger didn’t think she would ever come face to face with a group of aliens. But when she moves to West Virginia, her neighbours just so happen to be aliens. Dee, a lovely girl who becomes Katy’s best friend; and Daemon, aka the hottie with extreme mood swings. For the most part he’s just a jerk but at times, he is really sweet. This book is a must read for anybody.

2. Prodigy by Marie Lu


This book is the second book in the Legend trilogy and it shows true love at its best. I’m pretty sure I read the last one hundred pages while in math class last year and I was in tears when I finished. In the second installment in this series, June and Day return, only to find out the Elector Primo is dead. The Elector’s son, Anden is placed into his position. June and Day team up with the patriots and determine a plan to assasinate Anden. You’ll have to read the book to figure out if the assasination plan works.

3. The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow


This book was extraordinary! Have you ever imagined living most of your life with a drunk mother and then all of a sudden, moving to Las Vegas to live with your rich father in a high end penthouse. That’s what life is like for Savannah, Courtney and Peyton Diamond. Partying every night is their new routine. But, what if, dating the wrong people is a storyline that ran into this book? Read it to find out.

4. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey


Only read this book if you are prepared to read about aliens, violence and death, a lot of death. Besides the fact of a lot of death, this book is still super epic. Cassie Sullivan lived a normal life…..that was, until the first wave came around. The first wave left darkness. The second left a tsunami so big, it wiped out all of any coastal cities. The third injected extreme viruses into innocent humans, leaving them with a slow and dreadful death. The fourth dealt with killing the rest of the human population using “silencers”. The fifth is what nobody suspected. Innocent children set up to kill the rest of the world.

5. Ink by Amanda Sun


Ink isn’t a book that most people have read but, we have to make that change. Katie Green moves to Japan after her mother’s devastating death only to find herself trapped in the world of the kami. Meeting Tomohiro should’ve gone better than it had. It all started when Katie made the mistake of looking at a fallen picture; a picture that moved. After that, Tomo was really rude towards Katie but she didn’t care; she stalked him anyways. Until one day, when Tomo was drawing at a park, he noticed her and invited her to sit with him.

6. Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout


This book is the fourth installment in the Lux series and is one of the most heart-wrenching books you’ll ever read. At the end of Opal, what happened to Dawson and Beth, happened to Katy and Daemon; except this time they were separated. You get to see the different views of Daemon and Katy and how they get through without one another. With the help of Luc, Daemon attempts to save Katy, but instead falls into the hands of Nancy Husher. What will Nancy do with him? Continue the bestselling Lux series to find out.

7. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick


This book was so lovely. I really related to Sam and couldn’t handle the hottie boyfriend she had. Like lets just take a second…….JASE!!!!!!! He was amazing. But, I got to say, Andy was my favorite. Okay, I guess I’ll stop ranting and talk a bit about the novel. Samantha Reed has lived beside the Garrett’s all of her life. riotous and messy, her mother despised them, but she sat at her window every night watching them. Until one night, one of them actually climbs onto her roof to sit with her. What will happen next? Read it to find out.

8. After(wattpad edition) by Anna Todd


I know this is more of an older level book but, I read it anyways. And, I actually liked it. A lot of people hated this book but I enjoyed the topic of college romance. But, while reading this book, I felt really bad for Tessa. Not being able to talk Zayn because of Harry must’ve been torture. I do actually suggest this book so, go ahead and read it.

9.Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi


Okay, let me just say, Juliette was so Fierce. It was unbelievable. Juliette hasn’t touched a human in 264 days. The last time she touched one, it counted as murder and she got locked up by the Reestablishment. Nobody knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal, I guess that’s just how life goes. One day, a boy named Adam is sent into her cell room as a “room mate” but was secretly working with the reestablishment. After a long time of not being able to touch Juliette, Adam finally does and quickly finds out that the touch isn’t deadly towards him.

10. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner


Lilac LaRoux, the daughter of a well-known rich father runs into Tarver Merendsen while aboard the Icarus. Taarver, the opposite of Lilac, works within the ship. One night, the ship goes out of Hyperspace, killing everyone on the ship except Lilac and Tarver. The two of them are left alone on a mysterious planet with only themselves and ration bars.

Happy Book Release Diamonds are Forever!


This series by Michelle Madow is amazing and a must read for everyone. Happy book birthday.

Creatures of the Night Book Tag||October 25

Halloween Week Post 1

So this week I thought I’d do Halloween themed posts until the 31st. Tuesday will be a double post day, seeing that it’ll be my first Top Ten Tuesday and it is the day of the Diamonds are Forever release. Also, I’m not going to post this Thursday so you guys don’t become bored of me. So, everyday except Tuesday and Thursday there will be a tag like this until Saturday.

Moving along with the tag. I thought the Creatures of the Night Book Tag would be perfect to showcase some of my favorite books with creepy, character aspects in them.

1. Vampires


This category was hard to decide but since I really wanted to try to put one series in each category, I’ll have to choose The Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith. I’ve only read the first four books in this series but, in those books, you learn enough about each character to either have love or hate feelings toward the books. This series definitley wasn’t my favorite but it wasn’t the worst either. Like seriously guys, the Salvatore brothers were total hotties. I probably won’t continue reading this series but I might try to watch the TV show. I’ve only ever seen a few clips from the first season and the last episode of the sixth season so, I think it might be cool to watch the characters come to life. And even, my name is close enough to the main character’s. Elena, Alaina. Okay, moving on.

2. Werewolves


Whenever I think of werewolves, the first thing that comes to mind is Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. The La Push pack were a huge part of the saga. I was definitley not a big fan of Jacob but, I have to say my favorite was Seth. He was so fierece and adventurous. What made me like him even more was that he would do anything to save his family. His was also friends with the Cullens. If you have never read the Twilight series before, you have to pick it up.

3. Zombies


I have never actually read a book featuring zombies, so I thought I’d pick a book that I want to read. In the end, I picked Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. I saw the movie around the time it came out and I absolutely fell in love. The book is a zombie-apocalyptic themed Romeo and Juliet. The characters all changed names. (Romeo=R,Juliet=Julie). When I feel like reading a zombie book, I’ll definitley pick up this book.

4. Ghosts


The same thing for ghosts follows from zombies. I haven’t read a ghost book so I’m going to pick one that has been recommended to me. The book I pick is The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco. The only thing I actually know about this book is that it is based off of a Japanese ghost story. I think this book would be cool to read next Halloween season.

5. Witch/ Warlock/ Spellcaster


Of course, for this category I have to pick Harry Potter. I’ve never actually read all of the books but I’ve read the first three and seen all of the movies which gives me enough knowledge about the series to write about it as my favorite. Out of all of the professors, my favorites were Flitwick and Snape; out of the students, mine were Hermione Granger and Cedric Diggory. The Harry Potter series is a well-known series to people of all ages and if you haven’t joined the bandwagon yet, what are you waiting for? Then you can “swish and flick” your wands and say your favorite spell. Mine is Wingardium Leviosa.

6. Fairy/ Fae


For this category, I have to pick The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I’m still only on City of Bones but, I just love when Jace talks about the faeries. I imagine them being beautiful figurines, flying through the night sky. I hope my imagining of the faeries is what they really look like.

7. Demons


I can’t help it, I have to pick TMI again. Tons of demons pop up throughout the books and you just won’t be able to resist reading about them. My favorite kind of demon is the ravener. I know they are very sluggish and ugly but, at the same time, they are the most well-known for readers of City of Bones. I believe that there are more kinds of Demons but for now, the ravener is my favorite.

8. Angels


The only book series I own that has angels in it is TMI, so I’m going to pick something that I haven’t read yet. My pick is Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins. I’ve wanted to read this since I finished the Lux series because I believe that this series of books are classics for the fallen angel universe. Anna Whitt and Kaidan Rowe should be modern day classic charcters like Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy were in Pride and Prejudice. This series doesn’t have much hype at the moment, but I believe that should change.

9. Aliens


Lux, duh. Lux by Jennifer L. Armentrout is probably number one on my favorites list. It is just amazing. The main character, Katy, inspired me to create this blog and I’m really happy I did. The cool thing about this series is that it doesn’t feature your everyday alien. It features Luxen(light) and Arum(shadow) aliens. And you’ll definitley fall head over heels for Daemon Black. For those who have never read a JLA book before, you must read one. You become submerged into her writing and won’t be able to escape.

10. Superpowered humans


This one is a tie between The Paper Gods series by Amanda Sun and the Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi. They are both incredible books that star characters with powers. In Amanda Sun’s Ink, book one in The Paper Gods series, Katy moves to Japan after her mother’s devastating passing. After being bullied by him, she befriends Tomohiro, a guy who becomes dangerous when paper and ink are placed his hands. On the other hand, the Shatter Me trilogy shows the world of Juliette, as she cannot touch anyone except Adam. Both are very intriguing series that everyone should read.

Tune in tomorrow for the continuation of my Halloween series.
