Ok so this week was very difficult as normally the reason why I don’t like a book is because of the characters so most of these have come from books that I LOVED the characters but only liked the books (I hope that makes sense).

10 Alice Cullen – Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer

9 Jasmine – Deltora Quest Series by Emily Rodda

8 Dodge Anderson – The Looking Glass Wars Series by Frank Beddor

7 A – Pretty Little Liars Series by Sara Shepard

6Grover Underwood – Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan

5 Dashiell (Dash) Boomer – Dash & Lily Series by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

4 Annabeth Chase – Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan

3 Rylin Myers – The Thousandth Floor Series by Katharine McGee

2 Aiden St. Delphi – Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

1 Grim – The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa

So once again these aren’t my favourite characters of all time but they are my favourite characters excluding 5 star books.

Anyway Happy Reading

Happy Reading

Since I live in Australia, 99% of the books I read are set in a different country so I have decided to tweak this topic a little. Instead of a different country I will be listing 10 of my favourite books that take place in a different world.

10 Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

9 Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan

8 The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

7 Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

6 Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

5Red Queen Series by Victoria Aveyard

4 Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J Maas

3 Shades of Magic Series by V E Schwab

2 The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

1 The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

Of course I would love to live in the Harry Potter world but I feel like it goes without saying.

Happy Reading

I’m sitting my OWLs

So last week I found an awesome video on YouTube by BookRoast. She for most of the month of April (2nd to the 29th) will be hosting a readathon for everyone to sit their OWLs (as in Hogwarts exam). The idea is also that this readathon will lead into another one later on for everyone to sit their NEWTs.

I will definitely be completing my OWLs and since I am a competitive Slytherin I will be aiming to complete all 12 exams.

So what are the subjects and the exam task you ask:

Ancient runes – Read a book with a symbol on the cover
Arithmacy – Read a book with a number on the cover or in the title
Astronomy – Read a science fiction novel
Care of Magical Creatures – Read a book including a magical creature or has one on the cover
Charms – Read a fantasy book
Defense Against the Dark Arts – Read a book with secret societies or clubs
Divination – Read a book that featuring prophecies
Herbology – Read a book with a nature related word in the title
History of Magic – Read a historical fiction book
Muggles Studies – Read a non-fiction muggle book
Potions – Read a book about/ with alchemy
Transfiguration – Read a book that deals with transfiguration/ shapeshifting or has a cat on the cover

The Grades:

Passing Grades:
Outstanding – Sit (and pass) at least 5 OWLs
Exceeded Expectations – Sit (and pass) at least 3 OWLs
Acceptable – Sit (and pass) at least 2 OWLs
Failing Grades:
Poor – Sit only one OWL
Dreadful – Start but not finish any OWLs
Troll – Don’t show up at your OWLs examinations

So now for my exams in order of my favourite subjects (and probably the order that they will be read)

Defense Against the Dark Arts – Don’t Judge a Girl by her Cover by Ally Carter
Potions – The Silver Mask by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Charms – Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Care of Magical Creatures – The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Transfiguration – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling
History of Magic – A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Divination – The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan
Herbology – Winter by Marissa Meyer
Ancient Runes – Divergent by Veronica Roth
Astronomy – Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Arithmacy – One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake
Muggle Studies – Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

While this is my current TBR I am thinking about changing some up to add in some Comic Trade Paperbacks since I haven’t read ANY this year.

I hope you will all join in for this readathon as it is going to be heaps of fun!

Go Slytherin!

10 The Mortal Instruments & The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare (Well really anything she ever writes)

9 The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson

8 Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

7 Ember Quartet by Sabaa Tahir

6 Shades of Magic by V. E. Schwab

5 Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas

4 Stalking Jack the Ripper Series by Kerri Maniscalco

Ok, so I may have only read the first two books in the series (Third one comes out later is year and I am so excited!!!) but I have completely fallen in love and would be very content reading this series forever. I love the relationship between Audrey and Thomas. There’s just the right amount of romance between them but it isn’t the main focus of the books.

3 A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

This is the series I read before Harry Potter. This is the series that got me into reading (my Dad was so happy that he brought these for me)

2 The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

I love the Lunar Chronicles world and I am am loving re-reading this series at the moment.

1 Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling

Do I really need to explain this!

Ok so I may have cheated slightly and only picked series but if im going to be reading these books forever I at least want to mix it up and have a different one for each week of the year.

Good Night and Happy Reading
