toptentuesday2

1. Ransom Riggs

I bought Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children last month and I really want to read it. I can’t wait to pick it up :)

2. Marissa Meyer

I have Cinder, but haven’t had the urge to pick it up yet.

3. Marcus Zusak

I want to read The Book Thief so bad, but I just havent gotten around to. I have it and plan to read it soon.

4. Lemony Snicket

Yes, yes. I know. It’s bad. I haven’t read the Series of Unfortunate Events. I have some of them, but when I was younger I was intimidated by how many books there were in the series so I never read any….

5. Lauren Kate

The only reason I haven’t read Fallen is because I’ve heard a lot of people didn’t like them and I don’t really want to read a book if I know I’m going to hate it.

6. Lauren Oliver

I want to read Panic so so bad. I don’t have it, but I want to get it. It sounds interesting.

7. Pitticus Lore

I have the first three books in the I Am Number Four series but I haven’t read any of them, but I really want to.

8. Laini Taylor

I have one book by Laini Taylor and I only have it because I got it cheap from bookoutlet.com. I don’t know what it’s about, but I plan on reading it.

9. Neil Gaiman

I’ve heard amazing things about Neil Gaiman, but I just haven’t picked up one of his books. I don’t own any, but I plan to read one soon.

10. J. R. R. Tolkien

*shame* This one is really bad. I need to read the Lord of the Rings. I “read” The Hobbit last year during literature class, but I didn’t actually pay attention because we only read random chapters, so I don’t count it.

Top 10 Tuesday (1)


Top 10 characters I’d never want to switch places with:

1. Hazel Grace (The Fault in Our Stars – John Green)

I love Hazel but I wouldn’t want to have to deal with having cancer. I wouldn’t want my best friend to have cancer either. I wouldn’t want to endure that so I would NOT trade places with Hazel Grace.

2. Em Winters (Fury (The Fury Trilogy #1) – Elizabeth Miles)

Emily is a nice character but she has to deal with the Furies and her “true love” doesn’t end up remembering her. I couldn’t deal with the constant revenge.

3. Voldemort (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Harry Potter #1) – J. K. Rowling)

This one is obvious. Voldemort is evil…

4. Percy Jackson (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) – Rick Riordan)

Percy would be fun to be friends with but I would not trade places with him because he’s constantly having people coming after him. I wouldn’t be able to deal with the constant struggle of running away.

5. Ever (Blue Moon (The Immortals #2) – Alyson Noël)

I wouldn’t want to be Ever because she is so whiny and irritating. I wouldn’t want to be associated with that so I would not trade places with her.

6. Jade (Evolution (Evolution #1) – Kelly Carerro)

I really like Jade as a character, but I wouldn’t want to be chased by my evil dad…

7. Wren (Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell)

I would love to be Cath, but being Cath’s twin sister would be tough because Cath is really needy. Sometimes being needy isn’t a bad thing, like in Cath’s case, but Wren sleeps around and gets in trouble.

8. Eric (Minutes Before Sunset (The Timely Death Trilogy #1) – Shannon A. Thompson)

I don’t think I would like to be Eric because when he is Eric nobody likes him. I would like the shapeshifting kind of thing but would not want to be important in one life and hated in another.

9. Dimitri (Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) – Richelle Mead)

I wouldn’t want to be Dimitri because his love for Lissa is forbidden and that would be really hard to deal with because he loves her and she loves him… It’s a lose-lose situation.

10. Kara (3 Days (3 Days #1) – Krista Madden)

I would not want to be Kara because she gets rejected and she lives when the apocalypse happens and has to keep moving on with her life after that and I think that would be really strenuous and difficult to deal with.
