[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.

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 »

[Review] Opposition

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can’t believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Oh my god I just don’t know what to say. It was perfect, the perfect end, the perfect story.
Jennifer’s writing skills leave me speechless and her hummor and sarcasm is a plus that some authors are dying to have.

When I started the series I was hesitant. I mean aliens? Really? But I read Obsidian anyway and I was freaking drown to the story.
The characters are all so special and interesting. They change and develop in each book and personally I was inspired and I motivated to get as strong as I can in order to deal with my small everyday problems.

I am so thrilled yet sad at the same time that this is the end but I can still re-read them so no harm done! Maybe I can hope for more at the future!

Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

Together, they can face anything.

But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on?

And will they even be together?

Just by looking at the rating of the book (4,69 out of 5) you’ll immediately know that it’s a freaking good book. It came out three days ago and I didn’t waste my time. I was lost to it from the very first page and I found myself saying “oh my god” out loud too many times. It was thrilling! I could live along with Daemon and Katy! The plot was interesting from the first book but the new things Mrs. Armentrout added in this one made curse because the next book is not going to be published anytime soon! Well written and fun to read, this book fascinated me. I was persuaded that one can do incredible things in the name of love, while trying to protect important people.
A must read book! Must read series!

Well these are just from Opal. There are too many funny quotes in the series so I gathered a few of my favorites just from Opal.

[A slow, wry smile teased Daemon’s lips. “Simmer down, Kitten, before I have to get you a ball of yarn to play with.”

Annoyance flared deep inside me. “Don’t start with me, jerk-face.”]

[Dawson shifted, dropping his head into his hand. “Do you ever stop talking?”

“When I’m sleeping,” Blake replied.

“And when you’re dead,” Daemon threw back. “You’ll stop talking when you’re dead.”

Blake’s lips thinned. “Point taken.”]

[I shot him a look. “That bouncer was really big.”
His lips quirked. “Oh, Kitten, see, I try not to say bad things.”
“What?”
The grin spread. “I would say size doesn’t matter but it does. I would know.” he winked, and I let out a disgusted groan. He laughed.”]

[“I have the feeling we just made a deal with the devil, and he’s going to come back and want our first-born child or something.”

Daemon waggled his brows. “You want kids? Because you know, practice makes–“

“Shut up.” I shook my head and started walking.”]
