TOP FIVE TUESDAY ♡ CHARACTERS OF 2017

Hello friends and happy Tuesday! We’re getting into the last few weeks of not only December but of 2017 which means it’s time to start thinking about the best, well everything, of the year! As I mentioned last week, the last few remaining Top Fives will be focusing on my “best of 2017” lists and today we will be starting with the best characters of 2017. I can’t really decide if this should be the best new characters from new releases or the best characters from anything I’ve read this year, regardless of release date, so I’m gonna try to mix it up. And in all fairness, all characters are new to me this year so there’s my loophole. It’s gonna be hard to narrow this down to just five so bear with me.

Here is today’s Top Five Tuesday: Characters of 2017!

MOODBOARD MONDAY ♡ THE SCORE

Hello friends and happy Monday!

Today’s Moodboard Monday is the third in our little miniseries of moodboards dedicated to one of my favourite series, Off Campus by Elle Kennedy. This third moodboard is for the third book in the series, The Score, which coincidentally happens to be my favourite book! It’s funny because when I read The Deal I had little interest in Dean Di Laurentis but as the series went on he began to grow on me and now he’s my absolute favourite. Allie is also a fantastic character and their story is amazing in so many ways.

CHARACTER OF THE WEEK ♡ DECEMBER 8

Hello friends and happy Friday! Unlike last week I’ve actually managed to post this on the right day of the week! Haha, I know it’s not the biggest deal but when you have a system and schedule you always feel the need to stick to it so I promise not to get sidetracked again. Anyways, I’m really excited about this week’s character. I’ve been holding off on this one for a while now, mostly because I’ve been saving them for the right time and I think now is that time. This character is one that makes the series they appear in worth it. Sure, the story is really great too but whenever I rec the series to friends I always say “do it for this character” because I need my friends to meet them. So if you can’t tell, I’m so in love with this character and you should be too.

This week’s character is…..

REVIEW ✧ ON A TUESDAY

36266822
“Wait,” I touched his arm before he walked into the rain. “On what day are we meeting?” 
He tilted his head to the side, and the sexy smile that still invaded my dreams at night spread across his face. “I’m sure you already know the answer to that.” 

☆☆☆

We met on a Tuesday.
Became best friends, then lovers, on a Tuesday.
And everything fell apart on a Tuesday…

Charlotte Taylor has three automatic strikes in my book: 1) She hates me. She also claims that I’m a “domineering jerk with a huge, overbearing ego.” (I do have something huge. It’s not my ego, though.) 2) She takes our mandatory tutoring sessions way too seriously. 3) She’s sexy as hell… And a virgin.

At least, those were her strikes before our study sessions started lasting longer than they were supposed to. Until one innocent kiss became a hundred dirty ones, and until she became the first woman I ever fell hard for.

Our future together after graduation was supposed to be set:
Professional football for me. Law school for her.

But she left me at the end of the semester with no explanation, and then she completely disappeared from my life.

Until tonight.

We met on a Tuesday.
Became everything, then nothing, on a Tuesday.
And now it’s seven years later, on a Tuesday…

**This is a full length second chance romance, inspired by Adele’s “When We Were Young“**

MOODBOARD MONDAY ♡ THE MISTAKE

Hello friends and happy Monday!

Today’s Moodboard Monday is part two of the miniseries of moodboards that focus on the Off Campus series by Elle Kennedy, aka one of my favourite series ever. Part two focus on the second book, The Mistake, which is Logan and Grace’s story. Although this book is probably my least favourite in the series it’s still a great book with a wonderful story.

CHARACTER OF THE WEEK ♡ DECEMBER 2

Hello friends and happy Saturday! I know what you’re probably thinking: isn’t COTW usually done on Fridays? Yes, it usually is. But I have been crazy busy this week plus starting a new job and because I picked up a late shift last night I was beyond tired when I got home and didn’t have the energy to blog. My sincerest apologies and I promise it’ll never happen again. To be fair it’s still the same week as it would’ve been if I posted this yesterday so technically we’re still good. I have a really good character to talk about today and I’ve been wanting to do them for a while but haven’t had the opportunity yet. This character is perhaps the most inspirational character I’ve ever encountered. They’re the kind of character that you not only root for but the kind of character that makes you want to believe in yourself like they do. This character might be why I love the book they appear in so much because of how much heart they give it.

This week’s character is…..

MONTH IN REVIEW ✣ NOVEMBER

Hello friends and happy end of the month! I cannot believe we’re almost at the end of the year. How did that happen? I’ve been so out of it that I didn’t even realize it was time for month in review. But now we can start getting ready for Christmas and all those fun things, like presents and decorating the tree and Christmas baking!! I’m getting ahead of myself so let’s get back to the books. Not too many new books came out for me this month but I still managed to get some good reads in! Plus, I completed my reading challenge! A month early! I’m sure I could’ve changed it again but I wasn’t in the mood to, but my goal is a really big accomplishment for me so it doesn’t even matter. I’m proud of myself.

REVIEW ✧ SENTINEL

13605723
“Gods were like possums. 
You could go your whole life without seeing one, but once you found one of them, you found the whole freaky family.”

☆☆☆☆

It’s a beautiful day for a war.

As the mortal world slowly slips into chaos of the godly kind, Alexandria Andros must overcome a stunning defeat that has left her shaken and in doubt of their ability to end this war once and for all.

And with all the obstacles between Alex and her happily-ever-after with the swoonworthy Aiden St. Delphi, they must now trust a deadly foe as they travel deep into the Underworld to release one of the most dangerous gods of all time.

In the stunning, action-packed climax to the bestselling Covenant series, Alex must face a terrible choice: the destruction of everything and everyone she holds dear… or the end of herself.

TOP FIVE TUESDAY ♡ REQUIRED SCHOOL READINGS

Hello friends and happy Tuesday! I hope everyone’s had a good day so far. I think our Top Five list is going to be a pretty interesting one. If you’ve taken English in high school or university, you’re required to read certain books and it doesn’t matter if you like the book or not; you have to read it. Or, if you were like me, you tried the first few chapters, got bored, and Sparknoted the book instead and still managed to get B’s. “But you’re such a bookwarm!” you say, eh? You’re not wrong, but if I’m forced to read something chances are I won’t. I read what I want, not what I’m forced. But I digress. While I’ve hated most of what I’ve been forced to read in high school and university, there have been some decent ones here and there. So those that are in our list today are the ones I either liked and actually read or they’re ones I relatively tolerated but still Sparknoted nonetheless and I’m not ashamed.

Here is today’s Top Five Tuesday: Required School Readings!
