– Day 5: Who’s your favourite male character and why? –

I’m going to cheat here and say more than one, I can do that, right?


Ok, so I’m gonna say The Weasleys! All of them (except for Percy, he’s a prick!). I obviously love Ron the most, out of all the males in these amazing books, Ron is my favorite, but all of the Weasleys are pretty amazing.

Think about it for a while… This is a family who has basically nothing, they can barely afford themselves, and yet, they foster Harry during ALL the summers and most of Christmas, and Hermione as well. They go all out of their ways to include them, and they don’t even think twice about it. They fight for what is right, not because Harry’s father was their BFF (I love Sirius and Lupin, just saying), but because of their values and morals.

Ron befriends Harry when he doesn’t know anyone, and even though he has always lived in the shadow of his older siblings, he once again lives in the shadow of his best friends, but is fiercely protective of him.

The Twins, Fred and George, do enough for Harry than when he wins the Triwizard tournament, he gives them his winnings. They joke and prank, but they welcome him into the family with open arms.

Bill risks his amazing job at Gringotts to fight against Voldemort, he spies and risks a lot, including death when he comes face to face with Fenrir Greyback, but still he fights. And later, he welcomes the trio and some other unwelcome guests into his own house.

Charlie, who’s mostly with the Dragons, always includes Harry as well.

And finally Mr Weasley! Arthur is such a great character. He’s such a loving father and husband. He considers Harry one of his kids and would do anything for him.

So yeah, talking about guys in Harry Potter, I would always go with the Weasleys!

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read/Want To Read

Oh wow, this week’s theme is hard… “Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read/Want To Read“! I find it hard because after a week of wracking my brain, I realized that I only read 2 fairytale retellings, and one of them I can’t even see the similarities… (Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish).

Top Ten Tuesday

Books I’ve Read:

1. A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Maas – As we all should know by now, ACOTAR is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and it’s perfect!


2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – Apparently this started out because of Cinderella… I don’t exactly see anything in common, but hey, if it inspired Sarah J. Maas to write this masterpiece, I’m down!


3. Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block – OK, this is not exactly a Fairytale retelling, but it’s a Odyssey‘s retelling, and I think that’s pretty damn close.


Books I want to Read:

4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer – Book 1 of The Lunar Chronicles is a Cinderella retelling. I really have to start reading these.

5. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer – The second book of the series is based on the Red Riding Hood story.

6. Cress by Marissa Meyer – The third instalment is a Rapunzel retelling.

7. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh –  This book is on my TBR for this month, and AMAZON has already let me know that it is on it’s way, though it won’t arrive until Friday. So, this book is inspired on A Thousand and One Nights.

8. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler – This is a loose retelling of The Little Mermaid that came out recently, and I want to find the time to read it.

9. Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell – This seems like an interesting book, this is yet another retelling of Cinderella.

10. A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston – This is a retelling of  A Thousand and One Nights. But the cover is gorgeous and it sound intriguing, so it’s going on my TBR.
