Top 5 List #1: Protagonists – 1st personCharlie (Perks*)
Need I say why Charlie is amazing? Apparently my English teacher needs to hear it. A certain souvabitch is stealing Charlie’s spotlight. You guessed it- she thinks Holdem Caulfield’s style of writing to a reader is unique and to be studied. So I have to read it. And finish it, which I’ve tried to do before. And failed.
Scarlett March (Sisters Red)
In this fairytale retelling there are two sisters- and the POV’s alternate but I seem to remember Scarlett more? Perhaps because as the retelling would go Rosie definitely wouldn’t be Little Red Riding Hood. So is that a good enough reason for me to not give them a joint spotlight?
I don’t know why I like him but I remember him slightly more than Sam. That’s sort of worrying but hey...
I didn’t give this many stars but as I thought of this I realized I did enjoy her voice and her voice didn’t get boring. She may have gone through some stuff that I didn’t fully understand straight away but then realized but I think this is just how she spoke... When an individual has an eating disorder it’s not always obvious to them and I think that’s why it was handled like it was. I don’t often remember if books are written in 1st/3rd much after reading unless the voice is good- so y’know, her voice was good. And one of the reasons I don’t stick to YA (uh-huh, it wasn’t Bridget Jones!)
I don’t actually recall if Candor was in 1st person perspective or not... But I think it was. Candor is a world that I really got into, perhaps even more than Delirium and Oscar was flawed, odd and very much a voice I think you’ll like. Just as much as I did.
Top 5 List #2: Book Boyfriends (human):
|I am ignoring the fact that the only guy I could find with dark,|
curly hair other than the Jonas brothers was the dude playing a
Mortal Instruments character. I haven’t read that series so...
I'm pretty sure that actor won't appreciate a guy with (probably dyed) long white hair calling him 'fly head' & dissing him but hey... It'll have to be done to make Box just as lovable on screen as in the books.
Sean is in The Lost Girl which is a book I read recently and he is absolutely... absolutely... indescribable.
|Green eyes, baby.|
|Don't they say a picture speaks |
a THOUSAND words
Well... There is a reason that photo is from Catching Fire- I don’t want you to think I only like Peeta because of the Hunger Games movie! I think the reason I love him is more because of the other ones!
That picture is worth 1000 words.
Because it's from Catching Fire which I am dying to see and know I can't. Yet.
Zach (GG)Oh. The. Blackthorne. Boys. I haven’t actually read a book where he is taken but I do believe somebody, other than his mother, will probably get their claws into him. He might be cryptic but spies have to be, don’t they? The Bad Boy Facade? Well... That’s just an extra. Extra potential you have young Zachary... even though you insist on calling a certain someone ‘Gallagher Girl’.
Ryan (Mercy)We very much wanted Mercy to reconnect with Ryan, didn’t we? I may not have finished this series... Unfortunately... But seriously I will. There is nothing much I can say. He is awesome, Mercy forgets this.
Top 5 List #3: Paranormal Book Boyfriends:
|I don't have a caption but I'll say this: If you have any|
queries on the images used in this post mail me.
Werewolf. ‘Nuff said.
Does he have magic? Yes. Is a wizard? No.
Savants are perhaps sort of human in the regards that they don’t shapeshift, they don’t drink blood and they don’t go to Hogwarts... But seriously? Telepathy & healing aren’t abilities one stumbles upon in books that aren’t paranormal. Hence why Xavier, with all his wit, charm and Timberlands, is definitely a paranormal book boyfriend.
As I’ve already said... I sort of have claims to Uriel. I may not be exactly be in South Africa (aha, sorry a teaser!) but y’know... I can relocate. Uriel is described as the golden boy... Angelic blond streaks, positive thinker (but probably- being a savant like Xavier- a realist, of course paranormal characters can be realists); skilled at recalling memories- he doesn’t really belong to this generation of boys. Oh yeah, that’s right. He may be a little old for this minor... Sadness.
You are going to murder me. But this list wouldn’t be a list without a vampire. We can do without the wizard (Ron Weasley) especially as this IS a case where I like him for the movie. I think it’s better to include Jasper who I just like... Just because I like him. I’m sure Jasper doesn’t really sparkle. I haven’t seen the movies so if I’m just wishful thinking... It shall stay that way. K?
