My Top 5 Couples

In light of the month I thought I would share with everybody my top 5 bookish couples and my top 5 on screen couples! So, lets get started.

clockwork1. Tess and Will

Through out the whole series really I was rooting for Will Herondale. These two made me feel some serious feels. Jem was too perfect…and who likes perfect? Not me. So, Will you will always have my heart.

 

 

november-92. Fallon and Ben

This was one that I found myself rushing to get to the next part just to know what happens. If you haven’t read this book or anything from Colleen Hoover she has a way of writing relationships I swear. There is always something that hits you from left field.

 

the-one3. Maxon and America

This series was my happy place at a time in my life when I was really struggling. The relationship between Maxon and America starts in one of the most awkward of ways. I mean Maxon was dating like 32 girls at one point. These two just made my heart feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and at the time that was a feeling I was longing for.

 

burning-water4. Jesse and Water

Really this story just broke me down really. I love K.A. Tuckers books so so much it is unreal that I haven’t bought and binge read all of them. Watching these too pretty much have to fall in love twice was not only breath taking but at times heart breaking!

 

the-last-song5. Ronnie and Will

In the book and on screen I loved Ronnie and Will. Its that perfect summer romance that everybody craves once in a while. Plus, this story just makes you ugly cry for days.

Ronnie and Will have that sassy, can’t stop arguing type of relationship I love. Not as annoying as The Notebook, but not all lovey dovey all the time either.

ON SCREEN:

one-tree-hill1. Lucas and Peyton

If you weren’t rooting for these two the WHOLE time, you are shunned from my life! Ha, just kidding but I was one of those people I’m sad to admit, watched this show three time through and that doesn’t include watching it here and there on actual cable. I’m so sad that it is over. THEY are the ones that should have done a revival not Gilmore Girls.

 

the-fosters2. Callie and Brandon

I’m not sure if I’ll get judged for this, but I just want them to be together. I don’t care that they “legally” have the same moms. GUHHHHHHHH. Am I the only one that feels this way? They are just, I don’t even have words to describe them. But, I am forever team Callie and Brandon.

 

this-is-us3. Jack and Rebecca

I love them as a couple. I love this show in general but these two are my favorite. I sometimes feel like we don’t get enough of them. I almost wish they had their own show if I’m being completely honest. These two just show what a relationship and marriage can be like, and show what it looks like to fight for each other

P.S. This picture is oddly long…. 😀

 

safe_haven_poster4. Katie and Alex

I like them in the book but these two on the big screen really brought the chemistry. PLUS, I love Julianne Hough. This is also one of my favorite movies when it comes to romance. Again this is a couple that comes together at a really hard time in each others lives and it just brings them that much closer.

 

Last but not least….

images5. Ali and Jack

Gosh I love this movie. I’ve watched it an easy 15+ times since it came out. First off Christina does an amazing job in the movie in my opinion. Second off look at these two and their steamy chemisty!                                                                   ∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨∨557243165ec60bcbf98243891bbef7c7

 

Anyways those are my favorite couples what are some of yours!!!!!!!!!

roseblood

1.RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

Clearly. I would want to read the one book I have from an Owlcrate subscription.

This is a modern retelling based around the Phantom of the Opera. Rune our main character is sent to send her senior year at what was know to be an opera house affiliated with The Phantom of the Opera. Rune turns to the masked violinist, Thorn, for friendship sending her to leave her senior year in destruction.

So excited to read this!!

shadowhunters-codex2. The Shadowhunter’s Codex  by Cassandra Clare & Joshua Lewis 

This is going to fill the fantasy portion the the challenge. At least I’m counting it toward that. 😀

This is the manual that Jace hands to Clary and that later Clary hands to Simon. This manual is one that is seen used at the Shadow Hunter Academy.

So far I love the little notes left behind!

 

the-moon-and-more

3. The Moon and More by Sara Dessen 

I am currently reading this one!!

Emaline has what everybody believe the perfect boyfriend Luke. It’s the summer before college begins and Emaline is forced to face some serious bump in the road before she gets there. He dad’s in town, her relationship and on the edge of failing, and a mysterious boy named Theo is pushed into her life. Can Emaline keep from repeating her mother’s history?

Those are the three I hope to finish by the 25th! What is everybody else reading???

5 Reasons I’m NOT ashamed of my T.B.R. (To Be Read) pile!

I am so tired of people saying these things.

  • “You’re wasting your money.”
  • “You haven’t even read the ones you have.”
  • “Why don’t you just go to the Library.”
  • “You’re a little too old for young adult books.”

Disclaimer: I have no problem with the library. In fact I get books there I don’t know if I’ll like. I DO SUPPORT LIBRARIES.

1.It’s MY Money.

Stop telling me I’m wasting my money. I don’t buy books if I can’t afford it. And lets be honest I could be ‘wasting my money’ on drugs, or god knows what. So, lets take a step back from telling me I can’t spend my money on things that, um I don’t know, build my imagination and is actually healthy for my brain.

2.Stop telling me I can’t read something because of my age.

I don’t sit around judging others for what they do in their free time. So, stop doing it to me and people like me. I love young adult books, in fact I want to someday write my own young adult books. I love middle grade, paranormal, romance, classics, and much more. All I’m saying is stop judging because most of my books target market is for teenagers.

3.Guess what? I’m supporting somebody.

As somebody who wants to be an author someday, maybe. I strongly believe in going out and buying other author’s books. In fact if I read a book I don’t own and I really loved it, I buy it for myself. I want to support others the way someday I hope others will support me.

4.I’m not afraid to admit I no longer what to read a book.

There are many times when I will see I’ve bought a book and a few years later it is still unread and I no longer have a desire to read it. So, I sell it to someone, I donate it to a library. I give it to someone who wants to read it. And, no, I don’t feel at that point I wasted my money because in my eyes I’ll end up gifting it or giving it away to someone else who can’t afford to by books.

And taking part in being able to give something that allows someone who loves to read but doesn’t have the means to buy their own books is a great feeling.

5. I’m Proud of what I love.

So, all that being said I’m proud of my love for reading and writing. It’s been my escape since I was little and it will continue to be.  I hope to someday share my love of reading with my children. It gives me joy thinking about someday handing my teenager the same copy of a story or stories that have touched me.(or they will think I’m crazy but eh.)

Well, thats my thoughts for today. Have an amazing day everybody!

-Kayla

1.Burn For Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

Rating: 4/5 Stars

This story was a guilty pleasure. It very much reminds you of Mean Girls but not so evil Regina. I liked the characters a lot, and I look forward to picking up the other books in this series. Revenge never tasted so good, at least that was what Kat, Mary, and Lillia had thought it would taste like.

2. Saga Volume 2, 3, and 4

Rating: 4.75/5

     This graphic novel series is stunning, and bad ass. It follows two people who are stuck in a star-crossed lovers nightmare. They’re on the run with their new born trying to simply make a life for themselves and stay alive. There is a lot of adult content in this series I would advise 18+.

3. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord

Rating: 4.25/5

Light read, full of romance and friendship, perfect to get out of a reading slump. I very much enjoyed these characters, and the relationships between the characters.Reagan is tagging along with her best friend Lilah on her concert tour. While expanding her love for photography along the way, Reagan it faced with some very challenging self growth.

4. Holding up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

Rating: 4.75/5

“If ever a song was written for Libby and me, it’s this one. Two broken, lonely people who maybe aren’t so broken or lonely anymore.” -Jake

Coming from someone who has always had self image issues, I’m so happy to have gotten the chance to read Libby’s story.This was a very good and insightful story showing the struggles high school brings when you’re just trying to find yourself.

5. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Rating: 3/5

This is a story set in the 20’s following a group of people who are crude, selfish, and ironically poetic with their actions. This classic read wasn’t my favorite of reads. But, it did leave me appreciating the type of story it told.
