Top 7

Top 7 Book Series

For this month’s top seven I’m listing my favourite book series.

1) Robyn Hunter by Norah McClintock

The daughter of a detective and a lawyer, Robyn, often finds herself in the middle of mysteries.

I quickly fell in love with these books. They’re fun, realistic, and Canadian.

2) The Tripods by John Christopher

A sci-fi series about a world that has been taking over by aliens.

I don’t remember a lot of detail from this series, but they are the books that got me into reading and will therefore always hold a special spot in my heart.

3) Darkest Powers by Kelley Armstrong

When Chloe starts seeing ghosts she gets sent to a home for troubled teens, while there she discovers things that will forever change her life.

 These books were one of my first introductions to paranormal. I remember really loving the story when I first read it.

4) Matched by Ally Condie

In a society where all of your choices are made for you, Cassia begins to question the world around her.

I enjoyed the story premise and loved the main characters.

5) The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

Tessa is quickly thrust into the supernatural world when her search for her brother takes her to London. 

I loved this series, I love Tessa, Will, and Jem. In my opinion these books are way better than The Mortal Instruments series.

6) Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Sydney is sent to a human boarding school with a royal vampire, Jill, in an attempt to keep Jill safe as her life is being threatened.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you already know I’m in love with Adrian Ivashkov. He’s a huge part of why I love this series so much.

7) Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Against her better judgment Nora falls for the mysterious bad boy, Patch. 

I enjoyed this story, the books continuously had me on the edge of my seat.

Book Recommendation: Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead

img_2490-copyIf you’ve read last Tuesday’s post then you already know I’m in love with Adrian Ivashkov who plays a big part in Bloodlines. Bloodlines is a spinoff of the Vampire Academy series. Reading Vampire Academy isn’t necessary for understanding the Bloodlines books, however Bloodlines does include spoilers to the Vampire Academy series.

I love pretty much everything about the Bloodlines series. The characters are amazing and the plot is fascinating.

Bloodlines is about an alchemist, Sydney, who is sent to a human boarding school with a royal vampire, Jill, in an attempt to keep Jill safe as her life is being threatened. While at this boarding school they are faced with distractions, romances, and threats.

Fictional Crushes

fictional-crushesIt’s the month of romance, so why not talk about fictional crushes?

My biggest fictional crush is Adrian Ivashkov. Adrian is a character from the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead. And yes, he is a vampire.

Adrian is tall with brown hair, and emerald green eyes to die for. One of the things I like the most about Adrian is his complexity. On the surface Adrian is a confidant rich playboy, with a few too many vices. However, when you dig below the surface you find a man who is kind, creative, intelligent and a tad insecure; all he wants is to help his friends.

Who’s your fictional crush?

Favourite Authors

IMG_2266My favourite author is Ellen Hopkins. I first discovered her books at the time in my life where I could get the most out of her stories. I think that’s a large part of why I consider her my top favourite author.

Ellen Hopkins writes young adult and adult fiction books. With the exception of Love Lies Beneath and her short stories, all of her books are written in prose. The vast majority of her books deal with issues regarding addictions and/or mental health.

The first book I ever read by her was Identical, and I instantly fell in love. But it was Impulse that had the biggest influence on me. It really cemented my love for Hopkins’ writing.

A couple of my other favourite authors include:

  • Kelley Armstrong
  • Richelle Mead
  • Becca Fitzpatrick
