I’ve Been Spoiled | Top 5 Wednesday [23]

NEW-TOP-5-WEDNESDAY

Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.

This week’s topic is Top 5 Books I Was Spoiled For.

It’s hard being in the book blogging community/twitterverse and not get spoiled once in a while. Especially since spoilers can sometimes unintentionally just slip out. The books I am about to list are a few years old, so therefore I don’t feel super bad about it.

SPOILER ALERT… DON’T READ ON IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED


5. The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars

Even though I knew this certain character was going to die because spoiler alert THEY HAVE CANCER. I still got hit in the heart with all the feels. (I even almost cried)


4. The Mortal Instruments

Yeah I know who the bad guy is and it doesn’t bother me one bit. Am I shocked? Not really. Is it going to make me read these books faster? No…


3. Champion

Champion

Yeah I was told he loses him memory in the end and all that romance that they built together becomes a forgotten past. But it was still a nice ending regardless.


2. Harry Potter

I technically spoiled this one on my own by watching the movies before actually reading any of the books. So I know what the major plot points are… but it’s still nice to see all the details that were forgotten now that I am reading them for the first time!


1. Allegiant

Allegiant

This is probably the major one that was spoiled. And everyone I know hates the ending. I thought it was pretty cool that the author decided to kill a main character… but to switch POV’s in the end was a mess!


I hope you enjoyed my Top 5 Wednesday this week. So if you read any of these and are now spoiled, I am NOT sorry. I warned you guys! Let know what books were spoiled for you in the comments!

Until next time,

Siblinghood of the World Bloggers Award

siblinghood-of-the-world-awardHey guys!

I was nominated by Erika over @ Erika In Bookadventureland for this lovely award. I want to start off by thanking her for recognizing me and to say that I truly appreciate it. If you haven’t yet checked her out, then please take the time to do so now!

Rules
Sibling-Spot

Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.

Sibling-Spot

Put the Award logo on your blog.

Sibling-Spot

Answer the ten questions sent to you.

Sibling-Spot

Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.

Sibling-Spot

Nominate ten blogs.

Those are the rules, so let’s begin:


Sibling-SpotIf you were to be granted three wishes what will be your three wishes be and why? And no, you can’t try to be clever and wish for more wishes.

This is always such a tough question to answer. Parts of me want to be like Mother Theresa and try to save the world, but other parts want to be greedy and wish for an unlimited supply of tea. But here goes nothing. (Don’t judge)

  1. Free books for life (My only selfish wish)
  2. Better living conditions for all countries in the world. Be it third world or first world.
  3. Peace on Earth. (Oh how Miss America of me) But it’s the truth. There is too much hate in this world.

Sibling-SpotWhat book/series do you believe is highly overrated?Underrated?

One highly overrated book series would have to go to The Divergent series by Veronica Roth. The books have been recommend to me so many times but I just can’t seem to get past the first book. I’m just not liking the series as a whole. Maybe that will change when I get to finishing it… but until then I will say its really overrated for what it is. As for the underrated one I would have to say The Splintered Series by A.G. Howard. Why? Because I just don’t seem to see enough of it around the blogosphere or booktube. A lot of people say it’s on their TBR, but they just aren’t reading them! That’s just my observations.


Sibling-SpotIf you had to choose to live without one of your five senses (see, smell, touch, taste, and hear) which one would you give up and why? (I know this may be tough, but I’m curious as what you would all say)

This one might be a bit easy for me. It’s a tie between smell and touch and here’s why:

I love to read. Way too much! So I would like my sight to do so. I also love music too much therefore I need my hearing to enjoy it to it’s fullest capacity. In my mind I am a huge fatass. I just love to eat and would not enjoy it if I couldn’t taste all the flavors. Now I smell could go hand in hand with taste as the two sort of work together but I can’t say I would absolutely need it. And as for touch I just don’t know if I would miss that. Hmmm… to be continued?


Sibling-SpotWhat are some of the common tropes in these books that you are tired of seeing? What are some that you absolutely will never get tired of seeing?

It’s tough to say. But I think I could without the “one special girl that can save the world” crap. I feel like every book has this and I’m tired of it. As for the one I can’t get tired of seeing is the asshole/cocky princes. There is just something about their arrogance that ignites my soul.


Sibling-SpotThere’s a saying that “the book is always better than the movie”.  However, there are rare instances that this may not be the case.  Was there a film adaptation that you thought was much better than the actual book? 

Dare I say the Twilight movies? As much as I enjoyed the books (I’m not afraid to admit that) except for the second one, I must say that I enjoyed the movies a lot more. They brought everything to life that fell flat in the books and R-Pats was a sexy Edward. (And only when he’s Edward. It must be all that makeup)


Sibling-SpotWhat makes a book your favorite?Is it the plot, the characters, is it because it changes your life/inspirational, or is it down to memory and circumstance, etc…..

I think it’s a mix of a great cast of characters and the thrill of the story. I will use my all time favorite series Falling Kingdoms as the prime example. There is magic, politics, action and adventure, rebels, assassins, betrayal, murder, and surprises around every corner. Add that plus the amazing cast of characters such as Cleo, Magnus, Nic, Ashur, Lysandra, King Gauis etc. then it becomes my favorite. It’s as simple as that.


Sibling-SpotIn your opinion who is the worst literary couple ever?

Oh, a tough one. Dare I say Ron and Hermoine from the Harry Potter series? Not that I wanted Hermoine to be with Harry… I just don’t think Ron and Hermoine mesh well together. I find it a bit bizarre in a way. Maybe all three of them should have just ended being with separate people. (Don’t hate me)


Sibling-SpotWho is your favorite book villain and why?

I’ve mentioned this quite a lot in the past, but I would probably have to say it’s Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles series. She is just so ruthless. I don’t think she has a moral born in her body which is also why I like her so much. She’s just the perfect villain in my opinion.


Sibling-SpotImagine living in a society like Fahrenheit 451 where reading is forbidden and books are burned. Through what lengths will you go to make sure that your books are not burned? Like what would you do to make sure no one finds them? 

What kind of nightmare is this? Absolutely crazy. I don’t even know where to begin with answering this question. I think I would probably just want to be burned at the stake if I can’t have my books. (Too much? Maybe I’m just a martyr deep down)


Sibling-SpotThroughout your whole life, what do you believe has been the greatest advice you ever received?

Basically my whole life my mother has always said to do what makes me the happiest. Now I may have struggled with that very notion so far in my life, but over the course of a year I think I have finally come to realize what she means by it. I just have to be myself. No one else can make me happy but me. If I live my life the way I want to, then that is when I will truly be happy.


My Questions

Sibling-SpotYou’ve committed a crime and are going to jail for life. The judge allows you to bring three books with you and those are the only three books you’ll be reading for the rest of your life. Which three are they?

Sibling-SpotPick three characters from your favorite book and play the F*ck, Marry, Kill game.

Sibling-SpotYou’ve been granted a magical power from the Gods. Which power is it and why?

Sibling-SpotYou’ve been in a relationship with your man/women and things are getting serious, but out of the blue they ask you to choose them or your books. Which do you choose and why?

Sibling-SpotYou’re being held at gun point but the shooter says he will set you free if you burn three of your books. Which three would you choose?

Sibling-SpotHero, Assasin, or Prince/Princess? You can only pick one. Which do you choose to be in a story with you as the main character?

Sibling-SpotThere is a new law coming into effect. It bans (insert genre here) genre from ever being read/written again. Which genre would you choose?

Sibling-SpotWith wanting more diversity in books nowadays, what is one aspect you believe should be represented more and why?

Sibling-SpotYour favorite author is going to call you for a once in a lifetime chance to talk. You can only ask them one question. Who is the author and what is the question? Why?

Sibling-SpotIf your favorite ship doesn’t end up together by the end of the book, would you give it a low rating and why?
