Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

This Week: 

Ten Hidden Gem Books in X Genre: Pick a genre and share with us some books that have gone under the radar in that genre!

OKAY I AM CHEATING!!!! I am going to pick YA in general. I am sure that I could find a way to make all of these books fit into fantasy, but I do believe some fall more towards paranormal. I am so excited to find so many hidden gems in everyone's posts today!

I will talk about this book until the end of time. I see some people haul it, but they never get around to reading it, and it breaks my heart. I love the star cross lovers plot, the family dynamic, the comedy relief, and the fun twists to a classic. My love for this book will never die. 

This is another one that seems to be on alot of TBR lists, but not enough people have actually read it. I am currently re-reading this gem, and will have a review for it in the next couple of days. 

I do think this is a standard read for hard core JLA fans, but in retrospect  it seems to be one of her books that seems to get skimmed over and it confuses me. This by far is my favorite series by her. 

It is hard for me to find a fairy book I truly enjoy. Some of the more popular ones I just couldn't get into. This book was such a fun and enjoyable read. When I went to rave about it on Goodreads, I was shocked to see how few friends had read it. I marathoned this trilogy and fell in love with it! 

A fun witchy read that reads like a contemporary. It had a unique flare to the writing style, and took a fun twist on old stories and history. 
I think finding a good siren and/or mermaid book is like finding a needle in a hay stack. It is almost impossible to do, and it saddens me. This book did unique twists on mermaids and sirens.
Because I know the struggle of finding a good mermaid book I thought I should put two on here. This one takes more of a traditional route, and I thought it was a great summer read. 
Shannon is mostly known for her amazing middle grade series, and I feel like it let her YA trilogy slip through the cracks. This elemental fantasy was fun, exciting, romantic, and unique. Also, cover lust is a real thing when it comes to this trilogy. They are so gorgeous in person! 

Another amazing author, but she is mostly known for her contemporary books. I REALLY wish she would branch out more! This book is so compelling, and it can't be described properly. I feel like this book could be categorized in so many different genres. Paranormal, fantasy, science fiction, thriller, mystery, and probably more! This book is hands down a must read recommendation from yours truly! 
I love this series. I found it to be the right amount of fluff, angst, and fantasy. The magical world in this book is so beautiful, eerie, and whimsical and I ate it up! 

I want to take a moment and say that if you live in Houston or have loved ones there I am covering all of you in prayer. My prayer is a hedge of protection is around every single one of you, and that comfort and strength surrounds you.

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks Top Ten:Villains (favorite, best, worst, lovable, creepiest, most evil, etc.)
I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
