Top 5 Wednesday- Favorite Side Characters.

Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about the group or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic, and you just post five books that fit that topic.

This week’s topic is our favorite non-main characters. Those characters that although the story isn’t about them, we love them anyway.

I, personally, have always had a fondness for side characters. With the exceptions of Dean Winchester and Batman, I’m pretty sure all of my favorite characters are not the ones the main narrative is about. So, let us begin.

1. Spencer Martin from Maureen Johnson’s Suite Scarlet series

So I have this cat.

img_2635

And his name is Dr. Spencer Reid. However, he is named after several Spencers. One of them, being Spencer from Suite Scarlet. When I got Spence, there were a weird amount of fictional Spencers in my life. 2010 was a Spencer heavy year in media.

Spencer Martin is the silly, actor, older brother of the title character. He’s a voice of reason, while also being the character dispenses this advice atop a unicycle. He’s holding secret rehearsals for a full stage performance of Hamlet in the basement of this parents’ hotel. Spencer Martin reminds me of a very good friend of mine from college. He’s just this weird, goofy guy that’s also so smart and thoughtful and takes care of siblings/friends. Exactly the kind of person you should name your cat after.

2. The Weasley Twins (Mostly Fred) from the Harry Potter series.

The Weasley Twins (mostly Fred) are my favorite characters in Harry Potter. They are funny and ridiculous. They cause the best kind of chaos by being themselves and reminding us that even as the world is falling apart around us, it’s important to remember to laugh. From the moment we meet these boys at Kings Cross to the moment Fred dies, these boys are smiling and laughing no matter what happened to them. They are a symbol of youthfulness and enjoyment. And I love them (mostly Fred).

3. Ginny Weasely from the Harry Potter series

So this post could quickly become “5 characters from Harry Potter who aren’t Harry because Harry is one of the worst characters in Harry Potter” but I promise Ginny will be my last Harry Potter character.img_4865

Ginny is so important to the story. She is so different from Hermione, and essentially all the other female characters. She’s not afraid to be who she is. I feel like we forget, partly because of the movies, that Ginny was possessed by Voldemort when she was 11 years old. She’s a person that Harry can talk to about what’s happening with him and Voldemort and not just feel bad for him. She gets it, she understands. She’s one of those women who stand out looking at the books. She’s an athlete and fearless. She dates who she wants to date and doesn’t care what people say about her because she knows who she is. She’s Ginny Weasley, and is that bothers you, too bad. She’s living her life whether you like it or not.

4. Iko from The Lunar Chronicles 

I  have only read the first 2 books of the Lunar Chronicles, but Iko stands out as a character that I know I will love the more books I read. She’s exactly the voice that I would have in several of the situations that Cinder finds herself in. The wide-eyed best friend that pushes their friend head first toward what looks to be the best for them. “He likes you, and he’s the Prince. DO IT.” I identify hardcore with Iko’s fangirling and sarcasm. I hope the best for her in future books.

5. Takumi Hikohito from Looking for Alaska 

Why? Because no one can catch the motherfucking fox.

But serious, John Green has a talent for creating characters that are relatable in different ways. We don’t know much about Takumi’s life, but I think that many of us have a friend like him. He’s the one that can call you out on you crap, like ignoring your girlfriend for several months or making you realize that maybe, just maybe, the earth doesn’t revolve around you. We all need a friend like Takumi sometimes. He’s a great character.

I should also point out that in a book full of beautiful prose, I remember 3 lines, that one about people being rain, one about Thomas Edison’s last words, and “No one can catch the motherfucking fox.”

What are your favorite sidekicks? I’d love to hear about them.

 

Until next time Internet,

Fierce Fangirl Friday: I have been emotionally compromised

CAUTION: this blog post contains spoilers to the 2 part Supernatural season Finale so if you haven’t watched it, don’t read this. Because I will spoil it.

Welcome to Fierce Fangirl Friday❤

Fierce Fangirl Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Jackie over at toomuchofabooknerd where you have the opportunity to do some healthy fangirling on your blog!

Whenever you have something, anything to fangirl about – whether it be a book, TV show, music, celebrities, your pet, the universe, finding your soulmate or just a recent meal that you’ve had – Fierce Fangirl Friday is your opportunity to do so! It doesn’t matter if it’s a recent obsession of yours or something you’ve been loving for a while!

The rules are simple ones, make sure you ping back to Jackie, and whenever there is a Friday that you need to fangirl, about anything, even if it’s not what your blog is usually about, have at it.

The Image I have set at the featured image was created by Jackie and it states in her post that we can use it, so I have. Thank you for creating it. 


I have not been a watcher of Supernatural since 2005, I didn’t get into it until I got really into Tumblr in mid-season 6, but I have watched every episode.

I have been through a lot in my time in the SPN Family. I spend many weeks a year in a state of shock and anxiety and not feeling okay with what happened, or angry because characters who aren’t main cast members are killed off and probably won’t come back.

Last night was the 2 part season finale of Season 12. Toward the end of the second episode, My Friend, Jared Padalecki tweeted  “How are  you liking the show?” and I replied, “I have been screaming for the hour and 51 minutes.”

img_5140

That’s how it was going.

THEN

the last ten minutes of the show happened. And I am EMOTIONALLY COMPROMISED.

Supernatural Season Finales are rarely fun. We’ve had what looked liked a deadly car crash, Sam’s died, Dean’s sold his soul to a demon, Dean’s died, Lucifer has been released for hell, Sam has died, Purgatory is opened, Dean and Cas are presumed dead/in purgatory, the angels fall from Heaven, Dean dies/becomes a demon, they kill Death/release God’s sister, and last season then a beacon of hope happened when Mary came back to life after being dead for over 30 years.

BELOW LIES SOME SPOILERS I AM NOT JOKING

AND THEN LAST NIGHT

The first episode of the night was emotional enough. Dean finally got to say all the crap he’s been through and not blame himself. He hasn’t done anything like that since he shot himself in the dream in Season 3. Sam had a moment where he took responsibility and also did something by himself without feeling like he needed Dean in order to do it. Dean got to use the grenade launcher. I cried, I screamed, I cried. All the Winchester’s hugged. the British Men of Letters mess was cleaned up, and then I leaned back and thought “We have a whole nother hour of this nonsense.”

To be fair, they did tie off the threads of the season well and started new ones for next season. I am still in a state of raw and intense emotion.

One thing must be addressed before I go off the rails. The fact that Cas used the alias “James Novak” and thought no one would find him is amazing. It is only slightly less obvious than using the alias “I am Not Castiel.” But does he still used Jimmy’s driver’s license? Did he go to the DMV and renew Jimmy’s ID so he would have identification? Oh, Castiel and your shenanigans. *sobs for several more hours*

I don’t think Rowena or Crowley are dead. I’m honestly on the fence about Crowley, but the show and it’s writers have gotten so much crap about killing women that I don’t think they would kill off a character like Rowena without giving Ruth an on-screen death. That’s not fair to her and doesn’t do justice to her character. So hopefully she’ll be back. If Crowley is dead, his last words “Goodbye Boys” and how he died was excellent for the character. So if Mark Sheppard is back, excellent, if not, Crowley’s death was redeeming and good for his character.

In season seven, when Cas walked into the water after eating the leviathan, there weren’t any wings. When angels die, if they are really dead the scorched outlines of their wings appear on the ground. Because there were no wings there was no proof. No wings no proof. All we got was a trench coat floating away, and then we got Cas back and everything was good.

Until yesterday.

Dean kneeling over Cas and seeing those broken wings on the dirt. Well, I have been emotionally compromised. It’s not okay.

So as far as I know, and this was basically the first coherent non “WHAT HAVE THEY DONE” posts on Tumblr after the finale, Misha Collins is a signed Season Regular for Season 13. The big fan convention in Rome is this weekend, so we’ll find out for sure if Misha is leaving the show and announcing that he’d been signed was hiding that they were going to kill him. Castiel has become such a part of the fabric of the show, and such a part of Dean’s life that the show will be so different with no Cas that I don’t think the producers would do this to us. As far as I know, Cas walking into that lake was supposed to be the end of Cas, but the fans were… what’s the word… angry? Jerks about it? Flipped out? that they brought Cas back, and Misha has been a regular cast member ever since.

This can’t be the end of Castiel. It can’t be. His death didn’t mean anything. The death of Castiel can’t be meaningless. They can’t do to him what they have done to so many characters (Charlie Bradbury) and kill him for the emotional reaction. Crowley’s death had meaning and sacrifice. Cas got stabbed in the back by Lucifer. Castiel doesn’t get to die that way.

And the season 13 had better fix this nonsense.

I did reach out to Misha Collins for comment, but he’s been in a very weird twitter silence since around noon yesterday when he told all of us to record our live reactions to the last 10 minutes of the second episode of the finale.

Until next time Internet,

Deanna

 

Top 5 Wednesday- Summer reads

Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about the group or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic, and you just post five books that fit that topic.

This week’s topic is a look ahead to the not so distant future to the summer and our favorite summertime reads. I’m not the biggest believer that books have a certain season that they should be read, but I do tend to read more in the summer, and I do tend to read shorter quick reads. So without further ado.

1. Every single book by Sarah Dessen.

104379

 

A few summers ago, I think it was almost 7 years ago now, I read all of Dessen’s books up to Along for the Ride which was the most recent release at the time. Most of her books are fun summer romances, some of them take place during the school year, but most are about summer and the beach and love. Thankfully, there is a new one, Once and For All due out next month! I am excited.

 

 

2. 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

17020

This is a book is about a girl, Ginny, who’s dead aunt sends her on a mysterious summer adventure/vacation. There’s some love, and a lot of adventure. It’s a fun summer read. I loved it, the sequel, The Last Little Blue Envelope is also fantastic. All of Maureen’s books are fantastic but I think 13LBE is the most summer.

 

 

3. Ally Carter’s Heist Society series.

6574102

The way I sell this book to my friends is: it’s the TV show Leverage but with teenagers. Right now there are 3 of them, and they are quick reads. There are art heists and mystery and characters in shades of gray. You end up rooting for people who should technically be the bad guys. These books are great one sitting books that I just love. Perfect for sitting under a tree in a park or under an umbrella at the beach.

 

 

4. All Three of Carrie Fisher’s memoirs

I listened to the audiobooks of these three books, but I think they would be great physically reads. Carrie Fisher was such a gifted writer and just so funny. The books are quick reads to read during a day trip to a lake or whatever. Very entertaining and beautiful books.

5. The Peaches Trilogy by Jodi Lynn Anderson

562762

 

These books are very similar to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. They are about a group of friends in Georgia near a peach farm that is a big part of the town’s economy. There is love and pushing the boundaries of friendship as they girls come of age and start to see their town a little bit differently.

 

 

 

Those are my choices for summer reads. I’m excited to hear everyone else’s and add some more to the list as summer inches closer.

Have you read these? What did you think? Anything to add to you list?

 

Until next time Internet,

Deanna

The Keys to the Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson.

I believe I have mentioned somewhere between 1 and 642 times that I love Maureen Johnson. In this novel, her first, Johson tells the story of three sisters as they grief the death of their father. This book had me fall in love with her writing and style. Maureen Johnson is underappreciated and needs to be discovered by a greater audience.

CINDERELLA

A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
JUST LIKE CINDERELLA, YOU EITHER DIDN’T EXPECT MUCH OUT OF THIS CHARACTER IN THE BEGINNING BUT THEY TURNED OUT TO BE A TOTAL GEM 

4473

I first read this book in high school, and to be honest, this is probably the only book I was assigned that I actually finished in high school.

This book is over 600 pages long, and I was not looking forward to reading it, but it ended up being the greatest book I  have ever read. I should really write one of my Thursday posts about this book because I can’t contain how much it changed my life in a couple paragraphs.

What Owen and his story means to me is so deep. John Irving is a difficult author to read. His books are very dense and have a lot of circular storytelling, but this book. If you have time to read a 600 page Irving novel, do it. This one is special.

SLEEPING BEAUTY
A BOOK THAT MAKES YOU SLEEPY OR JUST COULD NOT HOLD YOUR ATTENTION

I did love the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, but it took me FOREVER to read them because of the long paragraphs and that much of it is written in Elvish. The pages and pages of longwinded dialogue was borderline obnoxious.

The book is great, but it was hard for me to pay attention to it to read large chunks at a time like I usually do.

UNDER THE SEA
A BOOK WITH A WATER/OCEAN SETTING

5231173.jpg

 

So this by the stretching the Ocean/ Water setting, but a decent amount of this book takes place at the beach, so I’m counting it.

This book is much more complicated than it sounds. It’s a book about dealing with death and convincing yourself that your grief is as important someone who was closer to the person who died. It’s a lovely book. Check it out.

BEAUTY AND THE BOOKS
NAME A BOOK WITH THE BEST BOOKWORM/BOOK LOVER

By Your Side by Kasie West was a fun read. The first third takes place in a library, which is how I am justifying this choice. It’s a cute love story. I did write a review about this a couple weeks back about how much I loved it.

This is a cute love story, and there are books and getting locked in a library. I loved it.

THE THIEF AND THE PRINCESS
NAME BOOK WITH AN UNLIKELY LOVE STORY (EITHER IN TERMS OF ROMANCE OR A BOOK YOU DIDN’T EXPECT TO LOVE SO MUCH)

25614492

 

 

Salt to the Sea fits in both of these categories. A book with an unlikely love and book I didn’t expect to love so much. This story is so sad, but there are so many loves each of the four stories show love in their own way, romantically or otherwise. This book is just amazing. Ruta Sepetys is amazing.

THE REAL LIFE PRINCESS
NAME A BOOK THAT IS BASED ON A REAL LIFE PERSON YOU WANT TO READ/HAVE READ

Listen, this book was great. I wrote a post about this book when I first started blogging a few months ago. This is a wonderful book about the complicated and conflicted life of a man that had so much promise but died because he refused to apologize to a man that could have been his best friend if Alexander wasn’t so prideful. The whole book is well written. I listened to the audiobook, which was helpful to get through the long parts about Consitution. It’s just a good biography. Maybe someone will write a musical about it.

THE PRINCESS THAT SAVED HER COUNTRY
NAME THE FIERCEST HEROINE YOU KNOW

6050678.jpg

 

The Levianthan series is a little “older” the first one came out in 2009, and I wasn’t too into the book internet when I read it, but I haven’t seen much about them. I think that these books are fantastic. They are a retelling of World War 1 with a steampunk spin. If I did it right, clicking on the book should take you to the Goodreads page, check them out if you haven’t.

The female narrator is a young woman named Deryn, who saves her father from fighting by pretending to be a boy to get aboard a ship to fight in the war. They are really good books. Check them out.

NAME A DIVERSE BOOK WHETHER IT IS A DIVERSE SET OF CHARACTERS (LIKE TIANA’S GROUP OF NAVEEN, LOUIS, RAY, AND MORE) OR JUST DIVERSE IN GENERAL

28763485

 

 

So I am guilty of not reading as diversely as I should. So I sadly don’t have a lot of books to choice from. The Sun is Also A Star is a great book, plus it features two people of color as the narrators and their stories involve their families and immigrant status.

I have probably read a longer book, but at 766 pages, Order of the Phoenix is one of the longest and the first one that pops into my head.

I’m sure you have read it. So I will not torture you with details about 5th Harry Potter novel.

I think that the love story that was emphasized in the movies greatly took away for the story the Hunger Games. Katniss don’t need no man. She can save the world herself.

Let it Snow is a compilation of three connected love stories written by three amazing YA writers, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle, and John Green.

These are stories about love during Christmas break, it’s super cute and sweet. I think it’s a great quick winter read. There is a movie coming up based on this and I’m interested to see how they do it.

Yeva goes on several different journies in Hunted. She goes on an actual journey to find her father, and an emotional and mental journey to discover who is really is and what she wants. Hunted is a great book. Read it. Really, read it if you haven’t.

WWW Wednesday #7

WWW Wednesday is a meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s very simple – answer the three questions and leave a link in Sam’s post.

The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What am I currently reading?

17162405

I recently started reading Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan. So far it’s interesting. I’m not too far into it yet, but I am enjoying how different it is. There are elements of paranormal romance, contemporary, and a little science fiction.  There is a girl with a psychic connection to a stranger who she has always felt was a sort of imaginary friend, but now she’s met him in real life. That’s as far as I’ve been in the story. I’m interested to see where it’s going.

 

 

106590.jpg

To be honestly, I haven’t actually started listening to this Lincoln biography, partly because it’s 30 hours long and thinking about how long 30 hours is freaking me out a little, since I’ve been listening to books that were about 10 to 15 hours long, but in reality it’s just over two weeks of driving to work, so I need to suck it up and start it.

Semi-related, did you know Blondie has a new song? It’s quite good.

 

What did I just finish reading?

17290266

I finished up The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle over the weekend. I’ll be posting a review of it tomorrow. I have mixed feelings about it. It was a good book, but I feel that there were things that could have been done very differently. Well, I’ll get into all that in tomorrow’s post. Overall it was a decent book.

 

 

 

 

What will I be reading next?

15801763

I have some ambitious plans for the month of May. One of the book challenges in a reading group I’m in on Goodreads is to read as many books with one-word titles as possible. Since Unspoken and its sequels have been on my bookshelf for an embarrassingly long time, I’ve decided to start there. I feel as if The Lynburn Legacy books will be quick reads. Up next will be Untold.

Calendar Girls: Best Sequel

Welcome to the fifth month of the reading/blogging event Flavia and Melanie are hosting, Calendar Girls! It’s a monthly event designed to ignite bookish discussions between bloggers based on the monthly theme. For more information, check out Melanie or Flavia’s launch posts!

This month’s theme: best sequel.

199687

 

My choice is the second book in the Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty, Second Helpings. To be honest, it’s been a little while since I read this book (about 7 years) and I desperately need to re-read this series considering how much I talk about Megan McCafferty, her writing, and how much I love her books, but I remember this one sticking with me for so many reasons.

 

 

I picked up this book because Hayley for the fiveawesomegirls youtube channel talked about it, and she was very excited about the release of the fifth one. Trusting Hayley’s taste in books I decided to dive in for a crazy ride that goes from YA lit to more adult literature and themes as Jessica, and therefore Jessica’s audience aged.

The first book in this series, Sloppy Firsts, was published in August of 2001, Second Helpings was released in April on 2003, Jessica, the main character is a senior in high school in this book. It follows Jessica through her senior year, the superlatives, yearbook prep, college selection, as well as her older sister’s pregnancy. It’s a turbulent year for Jessica as she tries, like so many of us have at 17 and 18 years old, to learn who she is and what she wants.

Between the release of the first book and the release of the second book, a huge event in American History happened. I was a freshman in high school that day. And in the nine years between that event in September of 2001 and March of 2010 when I read this book, I had never read a book that discussed the high school student reaction to it. There is a tone shift in the books that, looking back at them; you can tell that book one is a pre-9/11 book and the second in a post-9/11 book. It’s hard to explain, and I could have been imagining the whole thing, but there is a worry free honesty of the first book and the second book truly captures the change that there was in, at the very least, my high school.

Obviously, the Megan McCafferty’s take on 9/11 through the eyes of a high schooler who was not that much older than I was isn’t the only reason I love this series and this book. There is an honesty and a light-heartedness that Jessica’s character has as she writes her diary and explains the events of her life that feel so real. She doesn’t sugar coat her friendships with the people in her friend group who she calls “The Clueless Crew.” She’s conflicted about her feelings with two different boys. It just feels more real than many YA books I’ve read. There is also a lot of appreciation for Barry Manilow, which you just don’t see in YA literature.

I highly, highly, highly, recommend reading the Jessica Darling series. They are just good books.

Have you read them? Let me know what you thought!

Top 5 Wednesday: Authors you want more of

Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about the group or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic, and you just post five books that fit that topic.

This week’s topic is authors you would love to have more to read from. This was a tough one, I mean, there are so many great authors, so many amazing authors with only one book that I can’t wait to see what comes next. But I shaved it down to essentially my instant-buy authors that I anxiously await their next release.

16830632_669861920978_8152925717903566850_nMaureen Johnson: this surprised zero people, I am sure. She’s written the books in my featured image for most of my blog posts, and she is my favorite author/ person. Her next book which is a new series called Truly Devious comes out later this year or possibly early 2018, and that is not soon enough. I’m looking forward to the next installment in her Shades of London series. If you haven’t picked up a Maureen Johnson book, you should know that Lin-Manuel Miranda posted a picture of himself reading The Name of the Star. So… That is a recommendation.
157676

 

Lauren Myracle: I have read one and a half books of her’s, and I just love how she writes. I was introduced to her through her third of Let it, Snow which she wrote alongside Maureen Johnson and some other author, Her book Shine was so brilliant and heartbreaking, I just fell hardcore in love. The book I’m currently reading, The Infinite Moment of Us, so far is beautiful. I know she has a bunch of books out there so of them I’m not exactly into judging from the blurbs, but I will be keeping my eye out for more from her in the future.

 

79922

Megan McCafferty: So I may have mentioned this before, but I love Megan McCafferty. Her Jessica Darling series is drive across Maine in a snowstorm to get the next book and stay up all night to finish it good (That’s a true story). She’s just such a wonderful writer. I look forward to more from her, I can’t wait to see what’s next.

 

 

 

295178

Gayle Forman: She is something fantastic. I have loved all 5 of the books that I’ve read of her’s, and I cannot wait until she has more. She wrote Survivor’s guilt in I Was Here in the most beautiful honest way I have seen it portrayed. And the way she writes love stories, oh man. They are love stories that are so much deeper than many YA romance writers go. Powerful Writing.

 

 

 

I remembered that name of that third author of Let it, Snow! It’s John Green1406384

So, as I’ve said before, I’ve been a nerdfighter since 2008. I watched all the Brotherhood 2.0 videos before I picked up a John Green novel and reading his books, for me, are like reading the books of a good friend. I don’t know how to explain it. Anyway, I have lovehis books. All of them. He’s talked on the Dear Hank and John podcast about the difficulty of writing new books after the success of The Fault in Our Stars, but I am hoping for new material soon. It’s just really fantastic writing, and I much enjoy it.

 

And those are my choices. I mean this could be a list of 900 authors, but that rule is 5, so here we are.

What Authors do you want more of?

Until next time Internet,

Deanna
