Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme set up by brokeandbookish, I apologize that this post is late and you are getting Top Ten Thursday! As you may know I am back at university now and third year is already crazy. But better late than never right? I promise I will get better with scheduling and writing.
Without further ado here are my Top 10 Villains and Why, I decided to include a range from books, TV series and Film.
As you can tell by the title, today I am coming at you with a Bookish Haul. I’m feeling a little under the weather today and my headache is strong. Maybe i’m like Harry Potter and Voldemort is close? I’m basically hoping it doesn’t go into a full blown migraine but I really wanted to share with you some items I picked up in town then I plan on getting into bed and curling up with a film. It’s my day off today so relaxing is the ultimate goal.
I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by Felix Movie Thoughts; Thank you so much for your kind words and motivation for my posts and blog as a whole. Now I have to admit I had never heard about this award before but from what I can gather it is an award given to bloggers by bloggers themselves. It is to congratulate and show appreciation to the work of perhaps newer bloggers based of their posts and overall blog outlook.
The Rules of the One Lovely Blog Award are;
You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
You must list the rules and display the award.
You must add 5 facts about yourself.
You must nominate other bloggers for the award.
5 random facts about me:
I study English Literature at University – I’m currently in Second Year and within the next few months I will be surrounded by Deadlines and Exams but I also have to decide on my Dissertation (Thesis) proposal and decide what units to take for my Third Year… Ahhh, I feel like I have so much to do in so little time.
I am a TV and Film Addict – My perfect day/night would be tucked up in bed with either a book or watching a film.To all my friends i’m the girl that they go to in order to find out whether a TV Show or Film is good because they know I will have watched it by now. [I’m their go to film reviewer haha]
My all time favourite movie is Dirty Dancing – I could sit and watch this film forever and no matter how many times I have watched it I still cry/laugh/smile like its the first time.
I’m a Procrastinating Pro – My deadlines only a week away? Pfft that’s 7 days I have time… Seriously that is how my brain works but I have to admit I am getting better. I’m motivating myself and getting more productive making sure I keep to personal time goals so I don’t leave my essay to the night before.
I get really invested in book/film/tv couples and I cry at everything – It seems like everything I read and watch has the ability to make me cry, for example I am currently re-watching Grey’s Anatomy from the beginning and I’ve lost count of the amount of times I have cried… I’m only on season 4.
The following 5 blogs are my nominations for the One Lovely Blog Award.
I enjoy each of these blogs very much as their posts whether it be a tag,list or review are insightful and well presented. I can truly relate to a-lot of their points and they give you pause for thought whilst igniting a possible discussion. It is clear how much effort goes into their posts and I am regularly adding a new book to my TBR based off their blogs.
Considering tomorrow is February 14th therefore Valentines Day, I figured I would dedicate a post to my top 10 OTP [one true pairings], however to make this post a little different I figured I would ‘mix up’ my list a little bit so rather than only being focused on my favourite Young Adult Book Couples it would include both books and TV Shows. Now that doesn’t seem like too hard a task now does it? Well considering i’m a complete movie and TV addict and I get so emotionally invested into couples/shows it actually proved rather difficult… but without further ado, here are my Top 10 picks for One True Pairings…
1| Jace Herondale and Clary Fairchild
Choosing my number 1 spot for OTP was easy because i’m a die hard Clace fan.
Jace and Clary have always been my favourite couple from any book fandom but I was also a big fan of the coupling from the movie and now the TV Show. Choosing them was easy but choosing Clary’s last name for this post was hard. Fray, Fairchild and Morgenstern? Boy does that girl have some last names…
2| Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger
Aw Ron and Hermione.
I’m the Harry Potter fan that did it backwards… I watched the Movies before finally reading the books which I am still yet to finish [i’m terrible, I know] but I loved Hermione and Ron’s relationship and how Rupert and Emma worked so well together to bring such chemistry even from the first film.
3| Jackson Avery and April Kepner
Just thinking of Jackson and April makes me want to cry, why Shonda are you throwing words like Divorce at us? NO.
I have been such a big fan of April and Jackson from their first scenes in Greys Anatomy, their the couple I first search for in the new episodes wanting to find out what happens next to them. Season 11 was heart breaking; I really hope theirs some hope for them in Season 12. I wouldn’t cope if they were split up indefinitely.
4| Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen
Peeta and Katniss Forever, I was never a fan of Gale. He actually annoyed me as a prospect of Katniss’ love interest, I much preferred him just as her best-friend. It just never seemed right with me, whereas I was rooting for Peeta throughout the books and in turn the films.
5|Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway
This OTP is more for the book than the film whilst I did enjoy the movie, I found myself more in love with the relationship of Rose and Dimitri in the book. I wasn’t 100% keen on the actor who portrayed Dimitri in the movie, he didn’t really fit the image I had in my head.
6| Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf
The couple of all couples, Blair and Chuck are just… there are no words to describe them. Blair teaches Chuck how to love and it’s beautiful.
I miss Gossip Girl so much.
7| Stefan Salvatore and Elena Gilbert
Now this one may shock you because like Twilight we have the two teams; Team Stefan or Team Damon and in all honesty I have always been Team Stefan. I’m not saying I haven’t loved the relationship of ‘Delena’ shown in the later seasons of The Vampire Diaries because I have and it has broken my heart but I have always prefered Stefan and Elena together. Seasons 1 and 2 of The Vampire Diaries will always be my favourite, when Elena was a human and it showed her relationship with Stefan.
I actually haven’t watched any of The Vampire Diaries since Elena’s ‘death’, I’m not entirely sure what to call it but since Nina Dobrev left I just can’t bring myself to watch it. She was such a huge part of the show for me that I can’t imagine what it is like without her.
8| William Herondale and Tessa Gray
Can we all just take a moment to applaud Cassandra Clare on her writing ability and thank her for bringing us not only Jace and Clary but Will and Tessa too. I was rooting for Will throughout the books, I wasn’t very keen on Tessa’s relationship with Jem. Like The Hunger Games with Gale, it just didn’t work for me. Maybe it’s because I was rooting for Will so much…

9|Leonard Hofstadter and Penny
I’m not sure if I have ever mentioned it before but I am a HUGE fan of The Big Bang Theory and I have always rooted for Penny and Leonard. I hated the time he was with Priya or Penny with Zack or any guy really because they are truly meant to be.
As you can see the title does not include Penny’s last name and that’s because we don’t actually know it. Like Prince, Cher and Madonna, Penny is just Penny…
10| Four and Tris
Be still my beating heart…
This OTP is also off the Movie adaptation for Divergent because I also haven’t got around to reading the trilogy by Veronica Roth. It’s literally sat on my book shelf and I’m not sure why I haven’t actually picked it up yet… Should I hurry up and bite the bullet and get it read?
So there it is, my TOP 10 OTP’s for both Young Adult books and TV shows. What are your favourite OTP’s or your favourite TV Shows? Let me know in the comments so we can discuss!
I’m going to probably go and watch episodes of Greys Anatomy now and cry… so sad… but so so good.
Today’s post is dedicated to a haul, I was in a romance story kind of mood and took to amazon to build my book and DVD collection slightly, here’s what I bought…
Firstly I couldn’t wait any longer and I finally ordered November 9 by Colleen Hoover, I’m a massive fan of Colleen Hoover books most notably Confess and Ugly Love which were my favourite reads last year in 2015. I’m slightly disappointed that the cover I have isn’t the wonderful white and orange version but this one is just as pretty.
I of course also had to buy The Longest Ride on DVD after watching it back in December, you can find my full review for it here; The Longest Ride. But essentially I was blown away by the story, I loved how it incorporated 2 different eras, the modern love story and a past love story and boy did it make me cry!
I also purchased The Age of Adaline which features the wonderfully talented and beautiful Blake Lively; I have yet to watch this yet but the trailer looked amazing. I can’t wait to finally get the time to sit and watch this; the concept also features two different eras which is something I’m loving lately.
The only other book I purchased was A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. I adore the movie, it makes me cry every single time and the story is truly beautiful therefore I had to finally get the book and give it a try!
Whilst on the subject of Nicholas Sparks, the other 2 DVDs I purchased were Safe Haven and Dear John, both movies based on Nicholas Sparks Novels. As you can see there is a theme going on here, Nicholas Sparks. After watching The Longest Ride I wanted his collection of movies, I have watched Safe Haven before and once again Loved it. Nicholas Sparks is a brilliant Author and I can’t believe he has created so many beautiful love story’s. Each one as good as the last, The Notebook, The Last Song, Dear John… There all so beautiful.
And the final DVD I have yet to mention is Endless Love. This is a movie I haven’t seen before, it was actually one of the ones that I saw when Amazon puts ‘other customers have also bought’ which made me add it to my basket. I have seen the trailer and heard a bunch of good reviews so I’m sure its a wonderful love story that I can’t wait to watch.
As you can see I am really into the Romance and Love stories lately, I love curling up in bed watching a heart warming film. I’d love to know your favourite romance film, let me know in the comments.
