[Monday’s Top 5] Favorite couples

monday's top 5 icon
Today’s top 5 idea came to me from a comment I made in the latest Monday’s Top 5. So yeah, today is all about love and couples! I bet we all favor a few couples more than the others and even if the book is not that good but the couple’s chemistry is, then the book is automatically better.

no5

 Kyler and Sydney – Frigid by J.Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout)

Kyler and Sydney were best friends before they were lovers. I loved their chemistry and how they valued their friendship. They were both determined not to ruin their bond no matter what and to me, friendship is too important. They fought their feelings because they cherished each other and at the end they made it. All kinds of love are precious but friendship that turned out to be romance is amazing.

no4

Penryn and Raffael – Penryn and the end of days by Susan Ee

This couple is a special one, don’t you agree? We didn’t see much romance in the three books but their interactions were enough to love them. They were loyal to each other but it was not that stupid, blind trust. It was something deeper that later  thrived and became love; love that saved the world.

no3

Jennifer and Decebel – The Grey Wolves by Quinn Loftis

I was not into the series but more into the couple. I kept reading it because Jennifer and Decebel made one fine couple. Decebel was the alpha male and Jennifer was the stubborn untamed girl. It was so much fun reading about their romance because they didn’t even like each other at first. When they finally fell in love and mated, it was absolutely awesome!

no2

Alex and Aiden – Covenant by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The most perfect forbidden love ever! Aiden and Alex weren’t supposed to fall in love but they did and nobody could stop them… not even death! They’re my second favorite couple because they knew the consequences of their love and yet they tried to make this work. They fought for the right to be in love and I was melting everytime they were interacting.

no1

Maggie and Caleb – Significance by Shelly Crane

Oh come on, guys, you should have known me by know. The series and the couple are my ultimate favorites. Caleb and Maggie have the kind of love I wish I had with my boyfriend. The understanding, the feelings, the need, the mind-reading and the heart beating… Caleb and Maggie are for each other. They’re two halfs that make a whole. They’re perfect!

[Monday’s Top 5] Favorite Covers

monday's top 5 icon

We all judge a book by it’s cover sometimes right? I know I do and I admit that I have a thing about pretty covers, especially if I’m about to by the hardcover version of the book. Hardcover and pretty cover is an absolutely perfect and irresistable combination.

Today I am not adding any blurb or other information. I will just let you judge the book…

no5

The feelings I have everytime I look at this cover is the only reason this is my number 5. For some reason it makes me feel safe. I mean, being in the arms of the person you love when chaos is happening is the perfect feeling. You know nothing else matters and this is why I love this cover. I also love the colors~

no4

You were expecting this one, right? Us girls love that kind of dresses and bling bling. Yup, among the ‘Selection’ books, The Heir’s cover is my favorite.

I just love it. I love the colors, the eyes, the red hair and of course the dragon scales.

[Monday’s Top 5] Favorite male characters and how they look like in my mind

monday's top 5 icon

 Well, deciding my favorite male characters was actually really hard for me. I don’t easily favor a character and to find 5 of them was like a challenge to me.

   I also had the need to show to the world how I believe they look like which is also pretty hard, right? When you read a book, you imagine the looks of a character based on what you read but I am sure that everyone has a different image in their mind.

   So here is my list of favorite characters, the reason why I love them and how they look like inside my head.

no5

Ristan – The Fae Chronicles by Amelia Hutchins

This is actually how the author, Amelia Hutchins, imagined Ristan and I am so so so satisfied with the picture.

Why I love Ristan?

Besides his obviously incredible looks, since the very beginning Ristan showed us signs of his good heart and his intelligence. He appeared to be loyal, loving and caring towards his friends and siblings and that’s something I truly appreciate. Sadly, he was not a main character and we didn’t have the chance to know more about his love life and how he treats his women but from what I gathered from the books, he respects women even if they betray him or wrong him. His humour is unbelievable and he knows how to use it in order to cheer up someone. He is always ready to fight for his beliefs and he doesn’t give up easily. His heart and body are both strong, precious and deserve to be loved by anyone.

no4

Gabriel Merrick – Elemental (series) by Brigid Kemmerer.

As far as I remember Gabriel has dark hair and perfect blue eyes. In general stunning and strong looks. The pic I found closer to the one I had in my mind was this one.

Why I love Gabriel?

Among five brothers he is the most damaged one and even if he did some wrong and bad things, the support from his family helped him realize what brotherly love really is and that made him a better person. It’s really important to me, to be able to admit your mistakes and to understand how important family is. Gabriel used to be the player of the school but that wasn’t what he really wanted. After meeting his current girlfriend, he realized how superior he really was and that he deserved better than being just another jerk. He learnt how to love deeply and be a good friend. He learnt how to fight for a better life and not just give up. Who doesn’t love a guy who learns through love and trust? Who doesn’t love a guy who was ready to give his life for weaker people? Plus, his life ambition is to become a firefighter. If that’s not perfection, the what is?Read More »
