Top 10 Tuesday: Villains, Criminals and other Nasties

Hi, there! Good Night, I’m late again. Forget that high-five you were storing for me :/ It used to be Tuesday until three hours ago, so I’ll just claim insanity and post my Top Rebellious 10 Tuesday list now, haha!

toptentuesday

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and my theme today is Villains, Criminals and other Nasties!

I noticed a pattern in my latest reads: most don’t have expressive and marked villains/antagonists at all or they have weak ones :/ I’m so incredibly shocked by this piece of news that it took me three tries to type “shocked” right I decided to pick up three cute nasties from Harry Potter for my list. Excuse my book repetition, but one shan’t ignore the queen 🙂

In no particular order of loving or hating:

 1) Draco Malfoy, from Harry Potter

draco malfoy turning from mirror harry potter

I love Draco since I’m 7, haha! He and Snape were the reasons why child me choose Slytherin as her Hogwarts house and I can say it turned out to be the right decision – I was sorted into Slytherin by Pottermore in two different occasions: 2012, as soon as the site went live, and some months ago, when the site came back up 🙂 So just leave me alone to love Draco, thanks.

sorry i annoyed you with my friendship

 2) Jack Hunter, from Love Me Never [REVIEW HERE]

love me never

I swear, Isis Blake has all the right in the world to want to destroy Jack Hunter. The guy is sooo full of himself, acting as if he owns the world!

ugh as if cher clueless

 3) Chase & Chance Logan, from Chasing Rainbows [REVIEW HERE]

chasing rainbows

Despite all the evil these evil twins performed on this book, I still found myself liking them, haha! Sometimes I just can’t with these bad boys lol

 4) Lucius Malfoy, from Harry Potter

lucius malfoy being a diva harry potter

Because everything starts somewhere and this is Draco’s inspiration. Plus, I really envy his hair.

 5) Ash, from Night World series [REVIEW HERE]

the night world vol 1

L. J. Smith knows exactly what I like in a bad boy, haha! Ash is just like a lazy blond cat just waiting to attack his prey – and purring while he waits.

 6) Horace, from The Ranger’s Apprentice series [REVIEW HERE]

the ruins of gorlan ranger's apprentice.JPG

This guy was just disgusting, but I loved how he managed to have a change of heart without losing his charm, haha!

 7) Lilith, from Tales of Kingdoms series

tales of the kingdom series

She’s seriously my favorite villain/antagonist of the female gender ❤ Badass and fearless at the same time, she is basically unloved and misunderstood – two things that another dear girl is more than happy to fix 😉

 8) Lord Voldemort, from Harry Potter

voldemort creepy smile harry potter

I seriously can’t bring myself to hate Voldemort. Be mad and angry at him? Sure, sure. Hate? NOT AT ALL. They guy is too badass to be hated, haha!

 9) Celeste, from The Selection

the selection series

I liked Celeste since day 1. She was so bipolar and ambiguous that I needed to know more about her, haha! If I were America, I’d totally have stick around Celeste sooner!!

And last but so not least…

 10) DAMON SALVATORE, THE KING OF ALL BAD GUYS IN BOTH BOOK AND TV SHOWS HISTORY! Can you tell I like him?

damon salvatore the vampire diaries

I’ve been in a serious love affair with this particular guy since 2009, when I first read The Vampire Diaries ❤ The love only grew when the show began, haha!

damon salvatore how romantic

Seriously, I just can’t. Damon is too perfect. I arrest my case, haha!

Thanks for reading! Do you have a fave villain / bag character??

The Infinity Dreams Award – the second!

Hello 🙂 It’s me again, late as usual, but with a tag! HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN SINCE THE LAST ONE?! (please don’t answer that, haha!)

Anyway, one of my best online friends, the amazing Jess from the Mud and Stars, tagged me on The Infinity Dreams Award! If you never heard about her blog, you totally don’t read mine should give her a go, I’m sure you’ll love her as much as I do! Thanks for the nomination, my dear! 😀 ❤

infinitydreamsawardtag.png

Rules:

  • Thank and link the blog that nominated you
  • Tell us 11 facts about yourself
  • Answer the questions that were set for you to answer
  • Nominate 11 bloggers and set questions for them

My 11 facts

 1) I’m addicted to Diet Coke and sometimes it increases highly the intensity of my fangirlings and my capacity of shipping pretty much anyone anywhere. Example? Okay. There was I watching Madagascar 3, on my third can of Diet Coke, when the following thought crosses my mind: “oh my, Alex and Vitale would make an awesome couple with all the angst and sexiness about them!”

madagascar31.jpg

Seriously. At that moment, I knew it was too late.

 2) I’m a social butterfly in my offline life and an introvert on the online life. I know, it makes no sense at all, but I never seem to know what to type or who to talk to on internet. Example? Sure, sure. Goodreads’ book clubs. I’ve been to three and don’t remember saying a word to any of them despite actively following their discussions. Should I say something? When? Spoilers allowed? Am I supposed to read the book they chose now or can I do it anytime?

miley cyrus ashamed computer face palm.gif

I just don’t know what I’m doing.

 3) I love to start collections. Since I’m a child, I’ve been collecting the most weird stuff and some other cool ones. Sometimes I cool off about a collection just to dive back in some months later. I know, I know: examples. Well, I collect stationary stuff, notebooks, bookmarks, Pokémon cards, thematic magnets of cities, states and countries, perfumes, sea shells, rings… My most new and unfortunately lacking collection is my Funko collection. I only own three: Snape, Jessica Rabbit and Lilo. I have another one coming in that I won today (literally this morning, haha!), but I wished I could afford many more.

recebidos do sorteio do italo march 2016
those are my baby funkos so far 🙂

 4) I’ve been a Slytherin since I’m 7 and I really wished Draco Malfoy had a true friend.

Britney Spears Teen Choice Awards 2015 be fearless in your choices and dont be afraid to be yourself.gif

 5) I feel I’m running out of things to say and we are only in the middle of this list.

dog hiding with blanket in cage.gif

 6) I have such a fondness for lgbt love in general because I feel this is the last true social barrier for a relationship to actually work. If I’m reading contemporary romances and it is all about the couple getting together with some insecurity drama to it, I just don’t feel like reading it. I don’t see a valid problem, you know? But a lgbt couple has yet to deal with a lot of shit from society – from their own homes, in many occasions. That’s why I pin harder for them 🙂

 7) This last month, I’ve been obsessed with a song by Blake Lewis, called I Want You. If I could hear merman sing, I bet it would sound as beautiful and alluring as that song. I’ve actually danced while walking in the middle of the street several times when it came on my iPod. My neighborhood must think I’m on drugs or something, haha!

 8) I hate clothes shopping, but never take me along to buy shoes. I’ll end up taking the whole store if I can. And then I’m stuck with good things to wear only on my feet. It’s not unusual to see me in outfits 7 or 8 years old and a brand shinning pair of shoes along them.

from my personal Instagram 🙂 (@annebollmann616)

 9) I love big nails. I used to be a heavy bitter until elementary school, but I had this offline best friend (hi, Hachi!) that wore her nails longer even as a child. I thought it was so beautiful and awesome that I put on my head that I wanted to have beautiful nails too, with or without anxiety attacks. I don’t know how, but somewhere along the way until high school, I stopped biting my nails and started doing them myself. Now I’m the queen of the big nails and share Hachi’s throne ❤

f hits nails
this is my regular nail size nowadays 🙂

 10) Sometimes, I pretend that I can stick every character that I really like in a book inside Hogwarts. As I read, I imagine which House the character would go into, who would be their friends and all. And, of course, there aren’t only Harry Potter characters in Hogwarts at my head. Every character that I like and can remember is there to welcome the new comer. I’m such a loser sometimes hahahaha!

 11) The Book Adventures of Annelise Lestrange will reach its first year of life next month! I am so excited *–*

Jess’ Questions

1) Which fictional character is most like you?

That’s a hard question, haha! But searching my read books shef at Goodreads brain, I’d say that the character that hit the closest to my own personality and problems was Isis Blake, from Love Me Never – review here! I was so stunned with her that I actually teared up a bit at random times. She was so me, in both good and bad. I wish she could just pop out of the pages and become the twin sister that I’ve ever wanted, haha!

love me never

2) Which books have made you cry?

I did a list with ten on my last Top 10 Tuesday, haha! You can read about those books here 🙂 (Which I know you already did, Jess <3)

 3) Has a book ever filled you with rage?

Oooh, many times. I’m the type that talks with the book as I read, so I naturally rage at them too when needed, haha!

4) Who is your favourite fictional couple?

Oh, dear. PLEASE DON’T MAKE ME CHOOSE AMONG MY CHILDREN LOL I’m kidding. If I was forced to stick with a single fictional couple forever, I’d choose Max and Tristan from All In With The Duke. I lost count on how many times I’ve read this book since it came out, haha!

all in with the duke

5) Has there been a book which has genuinely scared you?

Yes, a couple of times. But the one that messed me up the most and wouldn’t allow me to sleep after reading was The Vanishing Game. It was surreal and not scary at all, but it disturbed me in a fashion that I was left paranoid for over a week after finishing it. THAT was scary, haha! But really spooked, I think it was A Stranger in the Mirror, by Sydney Sheldon. The book is a suspense drama or something, but seeing the castle of cards falling in the end spooked me on a personal level. Hm, I feel I wasn’t helpful at all on this answer, sorry!

6) Favourite fictional animal/fantastical creature?

Hmm, another hard one. I’m not really a sucker for magical pets – I like the regular ones like dogs and cats, haha! But I do like unicorns and dragons. Unicorns have been my thing since I was a child, but dragons were creatures that I learned to appreciate with Hachiyumi. She loves them to the core and I can’t help but to find them fascinating through her eyes 🙂

7) Favourite fantasy world?

Harry Potter’s, of course! How can anyone not love Hogwarts?!

8) Which book completely exceeded your expectations?

The last one was Kiss Kill Love Him Still. I so didn’t expect to be as hooked as I was! =O and now I’m crazily reading the sequel BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW WHO KILLED JACKSON! No times for reviews yet, but they will be here soon enough, haha!

9) Are there any books you’ve disliked from an author you usually love?

All the time, unfortunately. Some examples are:

  • Meg Cabot: I only like her books when she goes paranormal, but then I REALLY LOVE THEM;
  • Anne Rice: I loved Interview With The Vampire and related books, but hated The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty;
  • Stephenie Meyer: loved Twilight 1, hated all the other books in the series and The Host;
  • Kiera Cass: loved The Selection trilogy and have really strong hate feelings towards The Heir.

 10) What’s your favourite book in a genre you don’t normally read?

Another hard one, I kind of read almost anything, haha! But okay, I usually hate self-help books, but I love The Blue Day Book! It has the most adorable animal pictures on it and it took me years to realize that it was indeed a self-help book, haha! Especially with Brazilian’s translated title, that hardly announces the book as such.

11) If you had another blog, what would you write about it instead of books?

I actually have another abandoned blog written in Brazilian Portuguese and it had all sorts of nerd things, haha! News, reflections upon life, reviews, fashion analysis… It was definitely nerd, haha!

That was a long run! I really don’t know who to tag right now – it’s 4:25AM and I really want to know who killed Jackson, so I’d like to everyone that never has been nominated before and/or people who would like to play along with The Infinity Dreams Award to speak up in the comments, please! Tomorrow I’ll be back with 11 questions and to edit this post and make nominations 🙂

Thanks for reading and I love you guys! Also, love you, Jess! ❤

#DustOffYourBookShelves: Murder is Easy, by Agatha Christie

Good afternoon! AFTERNOON! SECOND TIME IN THE WEEK THAT I MANAGE TO POST MY MEMES AT AN ACCEPTABLE TIME OF THE DAY!!

tumblr_inline_nrn06lH7aB1qc22fu_500

Now my Thursday meme, #DustOffYourBookshelf, assumes the post, haha! This is a meme hosted by my dear friend Mandy, from The Reading Diaries. Make sure to check her blog if you haven’t ❤

dust off your book shelf

Da Rulez:

Dust off your Bookshelf was originally created to share books that have been on my “to read pile” for a long time. Some so long I’ve forgotten that they are there, and have purchased duplicate copies. Each week I will share on my blog as well as Instagram a new title. Some may be newer and some so old I have forgotten they are there. I do have issues with buying books and never reading them. I’m hoping that by share them I will be motivated to read them. Plus it’s always fun to find new books hiding within the bookshelves. Feel free to join in and share on Instagram or your blog. Just let me know so I can check out your choice this week too. Just use #DustOffYourBookshelf

My chosen book

Since I was born, I have to live with Agatha Christie in my face. My mom is a big fan and has ALL the woman’s books. ALL OF THEM. Sometimes, as a young child, I’d run around the house to call on my mom and be welcomed by one of Agatha’s book covers instead of my mom’s face, haha! So it was something so daily for me that I never thought of actually picking her books up to read. Does that make sense? Haha!

But then my offline bestie Jen started reading her books and told me how wonderful they were and I selected one to try my lucky with the Queen of Murder and Mystery. I chose Murder is Easy 🙂

it's easy to kill agatha christie
from my Instagram 🙂

summary

On her way to Scotland Yard to report several murders in her village, an elderly woman encounters retired policeman Luke Fitzwilliam. He dismisses her ravings about the murderer finding it easy to kill, as long as no one knows who he is–until two more killings occur, one of which is the old lady’s. Previously titled Easy to Kill.

But the thing is, I chose it so many years ago and it is still sitting on my TBR shelf, haha! I don’t really know why, oops!

That’s it, thanks for reading! Do you like Agatha Christie’s books??

Top 10 Tuesday: Books that made me cry

Hi, there! Good AFTERNOON! I DID IT, IT IS ON TIME AND EARLIER! I DESERVE A BIG HIGH FIVE!

tumblr_inline_nrn06lH7aB1qc22fu_500

Ahem.

It’s Tuesday, so it’s Top 10 Tuesday day! This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and my theme today is Books that Made me Cry because I can’t seem to follow everyone else and do the right theme of the week lol

toptentuesday

So, I’d like to start this post by saying that I usually don’t cry reading. No, I haven’t got an heart of ice or anything like that. I just purposefully avoid reading books that I’m sure that will leave me utterly miserable and struggling to keep breathing between my sobs.

You see, when I was 14, I had a severe case of depression due family problems. One of the things that helped me going back on track and learning how to cope with my mind was reading – a pastime that has accompanied me since my birth, may I add. Ever since, I started to avoid obviously sad books like The Fault on Our Stars and such. It’s nothing personal, it is just one of the things I had to do to keep myself sane at the time and it is a habit that stuck up. I can deal with some depressing parts in a book, sad moments and deaths. But downward tragedy all the time hits too close to home, so no, thanks 🙂

All that being said, I still cry in books, a lot! And not only tears of sorrow, so I divided by ten books by type of crying – because I’m that much of an organizer freak 🙂

Sad tears

tumblr_m2j6homceD1rsbzr1o1_500

 1) The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak

a menina que roubava livros.JPG

This was the only purposeful sad book that I read knowing that it may end badly and I don’t regret it. I read it on 2007, when I was 12 or 13, and it was a recommendation of a sales’ guy from one of my favorite bookstores at the time, so I loved it. I don’t see myself re-reading it, though.

 2) The Last Olympian, by Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson #5)

percy jackson 4 e 5.jpg

You know, the series was ending, one of the most awesome characters died and I was feeling too overwhelmed by all the twists and awesomeness. And I still didn’t know that The Lost Hero was a kind of sequel to Percy Jackson series lol

 3) Daughter of Darkness, by L. J. Smith (Nightworld #2) [REVIEW HERE!]

the night world vol 1

Again, the fault is on the twist in the end. There isn’t anything downward sad about this book, but I thought the choice of the protagonists so tragic, brave and beautiful that it got me tearing up a bit for their destiny. Again, no deaths, no tragedy. I JUST FELT LIKE CRYING, I’M A REBEL!

Agony tears

agony.gif

Since I watched Into The Woods, I was DYING to use this gif, haha!

4) All In With The Duke, by Ava March (Gambling On Love #1) [REVIEW HERE!]

all in with the duke

Yes, you have read it correctly. My diva, my muse, made me cry. I just couldn’t see a happy ending for Max and Tristan in the first time that I read this book and I WAS DYING. Sometimes, I still cry near the end, haha!

5) Cambridge Fellows series, by Charlie Cochrane

Honestly? I don’t even know why I kept reading this series for so long. Despite being an historical gay romance series, the writing style wasn’t my cup of tea, the characters were pretty shallow and the drama got heavier and heavier. I lost count of how many times I was reading this as I was on my way to college and I started to weep in pure agony for the main couple. I just wanted to grab Charlie by her shoulders and shake her until she came back to her senses and stopped that madness, haha!

Frustration tears

tumblr dean crying 1

Fun fact about me: when I’m very sad, I grow quiet and simply won’t speak or do anything. I become numb. When I’m angry or frustrated to hell, I cry like there is no tomorrow. Therefore, these next books got more tears than the sad books did, haha!

 6) What Lies Within, by James Morrison [REVIEW HERE!]

what lies within

I really liked this book, but I was so overwhelmed when I got to the end and there were some mysterious lose ends that I broke. I started crying and screaming and swearing, haha! After a calming shower, I couldn’t stop saying to whoever wanted to hear how good and awesome and badass this book is, haha! Strong emotions lol

7) The Heir, by Kiera Cass (The Selection #4) [REVIEW HERE!]

the heir

I almost began crying in frustration in the middle of chapter one, when I realized how Eadlyn and I wouldn’t get along. AT. ALL. And yet, Kiera Cass was forcing me to put up with the brat using my love for The Selection and for America as an excuse. Eadlyn drove me so mad that there were a lot of scenes that I read while tearing up in pure and simple frustration. I can’t wait for the nightmare to be over in The Crown

Beauty tears

its so beautiful

8) Chasing Rainbows, by Linda Oaks (The Chasing Series #1) [REVIEW HERE!]

chasing rainbows

This book was Linda’s debut and my first from her. I was so surprised to see her beautiful writing style, so impressed to see how much Linda seemed to understand me and how much I connected with Addie, the main character, that I found myself emotional in like 60% of my reading time. I took notes of quotes and felt tears down my cheeks. Super cheesy and super true. Just read this book – or any of Linda’s works, really – and you will understand.

9) After Death, by Jacqueline E. Smith (Cemetery Tours #3) [REVIEW HERE!]

after death

Jacqueline’s writing is a piece of art by itself, but there was a scene near the end of this book that was my undoing. It was so emotional, beautiful and meaningful that I started crying and wouldn’t stop, haha! I just wanted to hug my iPad and never let go 🙂

Last, but not least…

PERFECTION TEARS

steve martin happy tears.gif

I searched my brain aka my goodreads read shelf for another case of perfection tears, but I think it only happened once so far.

And the Oscar goes to…

leonardo dicaprio great gatsby party celebration.gif

10) CARRY ON, by Rainbow Rowell! [REVIEW HERE!]

carry on rainbow rowell

This was the first and only time that I cried because of over perfection. And I’ve read my fair of books for someone of only 21. I scared my best friend, her maid and her mom with my crying crisis and book hangover after Carry On was over. I simply couldn’t, I needed more, that was too perfect to end. AND I SWEAR THAT THE END IS SWEET AND HAPPY AND CUTE! I’m the weird one that cries over… Perfection, as it seems.

tumblr_mudtn4E5pX1syeot2o1_500

I know, I know. That’s why I’ll just thank you for reading and stop writing now, haha!

Do you also categorize your types of crying over books? 🙂

Top 10 Tuesday: Books I’ll Never Read

Hi, there! Good night 😀 It’s Tuesday, so it’s Top 10 Tuesday day! This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and my theme today is Books I’ll Never Read – you know, because I’m a rebel lol

toptentuesday

Until some months ago, I’d say “never say never” to any kind of book. Nowadays, with such a tight read and review schedule, I decided to put my feet on the floor. Life is too short for me to read books that people think that are awesome. I have to read a book because I think it is awesome! And the books in this list are not my cup of tea, so I don’t see myself reading any of them, sorry!

  1. Paper Towns, by John Green

goodreads icon

Sorry, John Green so far is not for me. The end.

  1. Bared to You, by Sylvia Day (or any book by Sylvia Day actually)

goodreads icon

This author and series were recommended to me by a very good friend on Instagram, but honestly? Nothing about it appeals my tastes: contemporary, heterosexual erotic, romance and first person narrative. I can see myself just jumping out my window, so I gave up on trying 😦 I’m so sorry!

  1. Memoirs of a Geisha, by Arthur Golden

goodreads icon

Lots of people keep talking about how wonderful this book is, but again: not my cup of tea.

  1. The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho (or any book by Paulo Coelho, ever)

goodreads icon

I don’t care that I should support Brazilian Literature. I simply can’t stand Paulo Coelho on a personal level. Therefore, I can’t respect him enough to read his works. I do not wish to disrespect anyone, but I can’t with him.

  1. Life of Pi, by Yann Martel

goodreads icon

Nope, not something I’d pick up. Ever. I didn’t even batted my eyelashes to the movie, haha. Okay, maybe this isn’t a big thing coming from me, oops! (to understand what I’m talking about, please read this post).

  1. Millennium Trilogy, by Stieg Larsson

goodreads icon

Again, I’m sorry, but this series sounds no big deal for me.

  1. Eat, Pray, Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert

goodreads icon

How this book got so known again? I’m confused. (I’m happy for the author to be recognized and all, but seriously?)

  1. If I Stay, by Gayle Forman

goodreads icon

I have a low tolerance for drama, I cry too easily and feel heavy and depressed all day long after reading/watching it, haha! So, yeah, not reading this one.

  1. Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes

goodreads icon

Again, I can’t deal with drama, oops!

  1. Digital Fortress, by Dan Brown

goodreads icon

I like my mysteries with other kinds of elements 🙂

That’s it, thanks for reading! Which books don’t appeal to you?

#DustOffYourBookShelves: Wanting, by Piper Vaughn (Wanting #1)

Good night! I still epic failed to post my weekly answer to this meme on mornings 🙂 Thursdays are #DustOffYourBookshelf days over here; this is a meme hosted by my dear friend Mandy, from The Reading Diaries. Make sure to check her blog if you haven’t ❤

dust off your book shelf

My chosen book

This time, I chose a freebie that I saw on my kindle quite by accident when looking for other book, haha! It’s Wanting, by Piper Vaughn 🙂

wanting.JPG

summary

Jonah Beckett has been in love with his older brother’s best friend, Laurie, since he was thirteen-years-old. When his boyfriend, Dirk, breaks up with him for refusing to put out, Jonah uses his heartbreak over the situation as an excuse to ask Laurie to teach him all about sex before he starts college in the fall. Problem is, he made Dirk up, and Jonah has no idea what will happen when Laurie finally finds out the truth.

goodreads icon

When one forgets that a book exists, it makes it harder for the book to be read, right? 🙂 I’ll try to knock my freebies shelves on July, it’s kind of a personal goal 🙂

That’s it, thanks for reading!
