TFW: Love Interests You Would Have Broken Up With!!

Sorry guys! I am back on vocal rest this week. Teaching has been super hard on my voice and since I have off this week, I decided to lessen my vocal use in hopes my voice sounds better when I got back to school.

I really like this topic because many times when I am am reading, I am screaming at my book, Break up with them! So here is my short list

  1. Edward Cullan

Reasons:

Way to controlling and controlling for my likening. I don’t like boys who control their girls and this boy is not exception!

2. Jace (Shadow hunters)

Reasons:

Pre book 3, his behavior really bothered me and I just did not like this character nor did I like how he was treating Clary, so around that point I def would have broken up with him.

3. Prince (Selection Series)

Reasons:

I def had moments throughout this series that I want to break up with him so many times. I know he is the character everyone like but his actions made me super annoyed.

4. Gale (Hunger Games)

Reasons:

I normally love this type of relationship but this boy was again too controlling at points for my likening. I would have broke up with him for sure.

On a The good side  (Boys I would never break up with) 

  1. Cricket Bell (Lola and the boys next door)
  2. Thorne ( Cress)
  3. Clark ( The Unexpetcted Everything)
  4. Henry ( Since I’ve been gone)
  5. Simon ( Shadow Hunters)

My Owl Crate Themed TBR For 2019

So I have a super bad habit of falling behind on my Owl Crate books! I am really going to try to make more of a effort to be better at this in 2019!

Here are some off the backlist and book summaries That I hope to tackle in 2019! I am listing them in the order I am most excited to read them! Most popular to not!

  1. The Wizards of Once  (Owl Crate Junior)

Unknown-12.jpeg

Summary: In the first book of a new series by the bestselling author of How to Train Your Dragon, the warring worlds of Wizards and Warriors collide in a thrilling and enchanting adventure.  Once there were Wizards, who were Magic, and Warriors, who were not. But Xar, son of the King of Wizards, can’t cast a single spell. And Wish, daughter of the Warrior Queen, has a banned magical object of her own. When they collide in the wildwood, on the trail of a deadly witch, it’s the start of a grand adventure that just might change the fabric of their worlds.  With Cressida Cowell’s trademark wit, and the same stunning combination of action, adventure, humor, heart, and incredible artwork that made How to Train Your Dragon a beloved bestselling franchise, The Wizards of Once will transport and enchant readers.

Reasons: When I first got this book, it sounded like the prefect halloween read and I still stand by that. It sounds like such a fun magical adventure book and really hope it lives up to my own hype. I also have an arc of the sequel that I really want to read! I got this two years ago in the October Owl Crate box 🙂

2. Amber and Dusk: 

Unknown-13.jpeg

Summary: Sylvie has always known she deserves more. Out in the permanent twilight of the Dusklands, her guardians called her power to create illusions a curse. But Sylvie knows it gives her a place in Coeur d’Or, the palais of the Amber Empress and her highborn legacies. So Sylvie sets off toward the Amber City, a glittering jewel under a sun that never sets, to take what is hers. But her hope for a better life is quickly dimmed. The empress invites her in only as part of a wicked wager among her powerful courtiers. Sylvie must assume a new name, Mirage, and begin to navigate secretive social circles and deadly games of intrigue in order to claim her spot. Soon it becomes apparent that nothing is as it appears and no one, including her cruel yet captivating sponsor, Sunder, will answer her questions. As Mirage strives to seize what should be her rightful place, she’ll have to consider whether it is worth the price she must pay.

Reasons: I liked books that deal with magic/witch craft and this book setting seems super interesting and I also love secrets, mystery and romance in my YA novels.! I hope I liked this book, it sounds super interesting.

3. Ace of Shades: 

81zQ9gJaqGL.jpg

Summary: Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted. Frightened and alone, Enne has only one lead: the name Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems.  Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless Mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…And she’ll need to play.

Reasons: I have had this book on my TBR since i got it. I Did not love her book daughter of a burning city and have putting of reading this. This books is totally different and deals with street gangs and also a character is named after my friend. The sequel also comes in april of 2019 and I really want to be caught up to date by then.

4. Girls of Paper and Fire 

Unknown-7.jpeg

Summary: In this richly developed fantasy, Lei is a member of the Paper caste, the lowest and most persecuted class of people in Ikhara. She lives in a remote village with her father, where the decade-old trauma of watching her mother snatched by royal guards for an unknown fate still haunts her. Now, the guards are back and this time it’s Lei they’re after — the girl with the golden eyes whose rumored beauty has piqued the king’s interest. Over weeks of training in the opulent but oppressive palace, Lei and eight other girls learns the skills and charm that befit a king’s consort. There, she does the unthinkable — she falls in love. Her forbidden romance becomes enmeshed with an explosive plot that threatens her world’s entire way of life. Lei, still the wide-eyed country girl at heart, must decide how far she’s willing to go for justice and revenge.

Reasons: I normally love books that are a mix between the selection and fantasy adventure and strong female characters. This book sounds like such a rich fantasy and I really am sad, I did not read it already.

5.  Shadow of the fox: 

9781335145161_p0_v4_s550x406.jpg

Summary:  Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn. Raised by monks in the isolated Silent Winds temple, Yumeko has trained all her life to hide her yokai nature. Half kitsune, half human, her skill with illusion is matched only by her penchant for mischief. Until the day her home is burned to the ground, her adoptive family is brutally slain and she is forced to flee for her life with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll. There are many who would claim the dragon’s wish for their own. Kage Tatsumi, a mysterious samurai of the Shadow Clan, is one such hunter, under orders to retrieve the scroll…at any cost. Fate brings Kage and Yumeko together. With a promise to lead him to the scroll, an uneasy alliance is formed, offering Yumeko her best hope for survival. But he seeks what she has hidden away, and her deception could ultimately tear them both apart. With an army of demons at her heels and the unlikeliest of allies at her side, Yumeko’s secrets are more than a matter of life or death. They are the key to the fate of the world itself.

Reasons: I have never watched any anime. But I heard this book has similar elements and would be a good starting points. I also have been craving more diverse reads with unique setting that have a fun adventure element.

Let me know your non-spoiler thoughts about the books in the comments or if any of these books are still on your tbr for 2019!
