Day 20 – Least favorite character

Umm so off the top of my head, I literally cannot think of a single character. How bad is that? I read so many book I should at least have one character who I despise and the thing is, the only one I can think of is Ana’s (ex)boss in 50 Shades.

So yeah, let’s just go with him hahah.

Day 18 – A book you thought you would like but ended up hating

Well..as I’ve mentioned, I don’t buy books that I don’t think I will like. Mainly because what is the point? And secondly, I don’t have the money to buy every book.

But I bought this book because it was hyped up on Twitter and it sounded just like the type of books i read. It sounded great and had great reviews.

Yeaah, i finished it like, “No way in hell would i forgive this guy.” He annoyed me so much that I just couldnt see past that when he tried to ‘redeem’ himself. So because of that, I finished the book not liking it, like everyone else did. But then at the end of the day, we arent all going to like the same books.

Day 14 – Favorite quote

I have to admit right now, I hardly ever highlight on my kindle.

But the past month, i have began to, so these quotes, yes quotes as i cant pick just one, will come from the highlights on my Kindle.

1. Andrew Parrish – The Edge Of Never

“For the first time in my life, I’ve felt whole, alive, free. You were the missing piece of my soul, the breath in my lungs, the blood in my veins. I think that if past lives are real then we have been lovers in every single one of them. I’ve known you for a short time, but I feel like I’ve known you forever.”

2. Camryn – TEoN

“Have you ever wondered what it would be like to backpack across the world? Just you and a backpack with a few necessities. No bills. No getting up at the same time every morning to go to a job you hate. Just you and the world out ahead of you. You never know what the next day is going to bring, who you’ll meet, what you’ll have for lunch or where you might sleep.”

3. Travis Maddox – Beautiful/Walking Disaster

“The only thing I’m afraid of is a life without you Pigeon”

“I’ll do anything you want. Just…tell me you love me.”

4. Cash Devonport – Up To Me

5. Colton – Falling into You

“I’m not just falling in love with you Nell. I’m falling into you. You’re an ocean and i’m falling in, drowning in the depths of who you are. Like you said, its scary in a way but its also the most amazing thing I’ve ever experiences. You are the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced.”

6. Braden – The Love Game

“Fight it all you want Maddie. When it comes to me and you, we’ll always belong to each other. Whether you like it or not. I.Am.Yours.”

7. Pax – If You Stay

“I love you. I love how you are so sweet and innocent and kind to people, but you are such a vixen in the sack. I love how you look at me. I love your smile. I love everything about you.”

8. Holder – Hopeless

“Fuck all the firsts, Sky. The only thing that matters to me with you are the forevers.”

9. Blake – Poughkeepsie

10.  Grammy – Never Forget

“You have to learn …that you might not end up where you wanted to be… But you’ll always end up where you’re meant to be. Maybe Alec is your meant to be”

Day 13 – Your favorite writer

So Day 13 is easy and hard in a way.

It’s hard because there are so many authors that I completely love and so many I have recently discovered who have become one of my favourite authors.

But I going to go with the author who I have been obsessed with since my early teens, whom my best friend got my into by lending me a couple of her books and who, I’d like to think, helped me get into 6th Form when I had my interview.

That author is Sophie Kinsella.

I own all her books and I LOVE them all. She’s been my favourite author (closely followed by Paige Toon) for years, so Day 13 is for her.

Day 12 – A book you used to love but don’t anymore

41865This is quite an easy one…It’s Twilight.

I used to LOVE these books. When I found out there was going to be a movie, I rushed out to buy the books, devoured them, lent them out to my friends and we all loved them.

But much the same as 50 Shades, its much more of a phenomenon now, its everywhere, the fans are just OTT and there was no point in doing two movies for Breaking Dawn because the last film was so slow and boring.

But yes, this is the book I used to love, but don’t anymore.

BUT I do love The Host by Stephanie Meyers and I am so excited to see it, so there’s one book by her i still love HA.

Posted in 30 Day Book Challenge, Colleen Hoover, Jade C. Jamison

Day 11 – Favorite pairing

Okay, so I can’t pick JUST one pairing. I love waaay too many to narrow it down, so just bare with me while i begin to tell you who i love.

1. Blake and Livia  from Poughkeepsie by Debra Anatasia.

Throughout everything that happened in this beautiful book, Blake and Livia fought through it. Whether it was the stigma attached to homeless people and talking to them/falling in love. From ex-boyfriends who wanted revenge for being dumped for a homeless guy, to murders and attempted murder. Throughout it all, these two knew they were meant to be and do anything to protect each other. And despite it all, they did get their happily ever after.

Poughkeepsie is about finding love and protecting those you love and Blake and Livia definitely deserved one another.

2.  Holder and Sky from Hopeless by Colleen Hoover.

I cant say too much about their storyline in fear of spilling what happens in the book. Their relationship started off rocky but eventually it blossomed into love. You will see the journey they take and understand why i cant say anything about it, because it will ruin the book but their love is pure for one another, it always will be because they have found the person they have been searching for, for so many years. Although there are things that test them, they never falter in their love for one another, knowing that together, they can get past anything that is thrown their way, as long as they have each other by their sides.

3. Andrew and Camryn from The Edge of Never by J.A Redmerski

During this challenge, I have badgered on about TEoN and how utterly amazing it is. Well I LOVE Andrew and Camryn. They are easily one of my favourite couples. They were both lost, not knowing which way to take, taking a journey alone across the country but then they met one another and Andrew took Camryn on a road trip – a discovery into making every moment count. He helped her discover her sexuality, helped her discover who she truly was and in turn, they fall in love with one another slowly, afraid to admit it due to their pasts. For those who have read this book, you will know they were two souls who were meant to meet, meant to be together. As Andrew said:

“For the first time in my life, I’ve felt whole, alive, free. You were the missing piece of my soul, the breath in my lungs, the blood in my veins. I think that if past lives are real then we have been lovers in every single one of them. I’ve known you for a short time, but I feel like I’ve known you forever.”

4. Anna and T.J from On The Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Anna and T.J’s relationship was kind of inevitable. If you are stranded on a desert island for years, with just the two of you, then of course, you’re going to fall in love. But its not just the fact they are on a desert island, Anna is 30 and TJ is 17. Anna, although she is starting to see TJ in a different light as they spend year after year together, she knows she cant do anything about it. She’s worried about the age gap but its TJ who pursues her, who woos her and doesn’t care about the gap. I just loved how their friendship changed into love and into a relationship as it was only the two of them, trying to make a ‘home’ on this island.  They truly love each other and as a reader, you’re sat wishing someone would come along and find them as both of them do not want to die and leave the other on their own.

5. Erin and Riley from Everything But by Jade C. JamisonT

I love this book. Seriously!! and i love this couple too. Erin and Riley are both afraid of love due to their pasts but they both cant seem to stay away from one another during the week that Rockstar Riley is in town. Spending the short time together, they both begin to feel something for the other, completely new and scary territory for the both of them as they don’t want it to end up like their previous relationships. They tackle some major issues during the days they spend together  and get to know one another, which makes them fall that little bit more for each other. They push past everything that had happened throughout the week, to finally finding that they can’t be without each other, no matter what is put in their path to stop them.
