Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I could have Lunch with

Lara Jean was the first person I thought of when thinking about Foodie Character. She was a baking extradanaire. Really, she should open her own bakery and catering company because her style and design is amazing as well. Thanks for the recipe book that was featured at the end of the book. 

If only Hermoine and I could stroll into the great hall, arm in arm stuffing our faces with the smorgasbord laid before us. The best laid buffet I could ever imagine. 

Jonah was such a good cook. Humble but passionate about it. About his fathers restaurant. I wish I could be at Vivi's birthday party. 

I had to google her name again, Nastya, was also a great baker. I love how she found baking therapeutic. And always smelled like vanilla. I'd taste test any of her cookies. 

The spread laid out for Queen Levana was so impressive I definitely would have dragged Cinder to eat at least one plate. 

Everything about the Night Circus was magical, especially the food. I was so impressed and then a little disappointed I wouldn't be able to taste it. 

The dystopian books have such a divide between it's people so often it's either scavenging for food or a lavish spread with so much food it makes your stomach hurt. I'd definitely help Katniss ravish the table.

Waiting On Wednesday: Brave by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Synopsis From Goodreads: Ivy Morgan hasn't been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It’s more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine... and it’s coming between her and the man she’s fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart. If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels, and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies. Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves--and, ultimately, to save herself.

Because behind ever evil fae Prince, there’s a Queen…

Why I'm Waiting
I loved Jennifer L. Armentrout's series White Hot Kiss so much. I loved the Obsidian series as well. I only have high expectations from her. And she usually comes through.

Top 10 Tuesday: Fall Covers

This was really hard. I couldn't think of but 1 book off the top of my head and even looking through my shelves. I couldn't find any books with leaves on the covers. So I only have 4 this week. I can't wait to see all the creative covers everyone finds.

Top Ten Tuesday: Book Boyfriends

This is the EASIEST Top Ten List yet! I am still madly in love with book boyfriends from 4 years ago so don't judge. They're just hard to beat.

1. Peregrine "Perry" (Under The Never Sky)
            He was never reffered to as attractive, but described in such an attractive way. Dark skin from being outside. Curly and unruly hair. A lifetime of physical labor so you know he's muscled and lean. And scarred. Scars represent a lack of fear to fight for what you believe in. And so kind and caring to his whole village. Such an amazing leader. I've probably read this whole series 3 times.

2. Kayden ( The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden)
            Kayden couldn't be more different from Perry. He has this beautiful scarred soul and stuck in this life. He feels helpless and doesn't even have hope. But his heart is so big. I just want to pick him up, give him a big hug and tell him he's going to be ok.

3. Fade (Enclave)
            He wears the strong sexy silent type like no other! Kayden and Perry were relatively laid back and low key. But Fade was serious. And mysterious. He had Dueces back to the very end. He fought better than anyone but only when he had to. He wanted this simple close life with Duece and it's all she wanted with him back.

4. Four (Divergent)
           Four was perfection. He was quiet and strong. Mysterious. Supportive. Sexy. Sensitive. Attractive. I loved all his tattoos.

5. Po (Graceling)
           He had the most charming personality. Polar opposite of Katsa which was exactly what she needed. He never gave up. His heart was so good when he didn't have to be.

6. Arin (The Winners Kiss)
             Love in the wrong places is always so good! Arin was so emotional! I think I need to read this again. She drove him crazy until he had to accept and admit how deeply and completely he loved her and she loved him. He never quit for his people or for her.

7. Roth (Dark Elements)
             Sexiest bad boy! Why deal with good hearts when you can have Roth? I immediately fell in love with his character. I couldn't explain exactly why.

8. Warner (Shatter Me)
             I did not expect to love Warner, as Tahereh Mafi intended with her writing of course. But getting to know him was such a beautiful journey. When he was vulnerable, when he loved, when he fought for himself and stood for his beliefs. Warner is the Lion no one ever asks how they're doing. But even the Lion needs love too.

9. Adrian (Vampire Academy)
            I think Adrian acted differently from Vampire Academy to The Golden Lily. VA Adrian was so flawlessly wonderful. A smart mouth, charming personality. Sensitive and emotional. But Loyal so loyal. I was realllllllllly rooting for Adrian.

10. Kellan (Thoughtless)
            He was such a artist! Caught up in the back and forth angst of adultery. Trying to find himself along with way. Trying to do the right thing. trying not to get his own heart broken. Because his whole heart was in it so transparently.

Today's question

 Have you ever slept with a favorite, beloved book under your pillow, or cradled in your arms?

This question is funny. Yes I've fallen asleep in bed with a book. Yes I've hugged or cradled a book. No I've never held a book like a teddy bear when falling asleep. I might have kept it under my pillow in my teens for safe keeping.

Today's question

What are your favorite banned books?
I actually had to google "banned" books because, um who banned them from where?
School I'm guessing.
*shrug, I went to a weird school, so this never applied to me*

I loved The Giver.

This weeks question is

Have you ever bought a second copy of a book for the prettier cover?

Honestly, no. I like the story itself more than the paper copy of it. My favorite is trolling Goodwill and any second hand book store which never has nice covers. I like loved on books, with rips and stains. The reader took it everywhere with them, or read it multiple times.

The best I've done is buy a book the day it came out, hard back copy, maybe even got it signed. The original covers are usually my favorite.
