Top 5 Wednesday: Worst Love Interests


Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by GingerReadsLainey. You can join the Goodreads group here and check out the topics.
   This weeks topic is worst love interests, male or female, and this was really easy for me to decide. Some of them have been on my shit list for awhile..


Leah is one of the most conniving people I have ever read about and she turns everything to posion.


Nick from The Hollows series by Kim Harrison (my all time favorite series) is a whiny, little bitch. That is all.


Adam Kent... same as the above.


Richard from Anita Blake series turned 360 degrees and from a pretty sweet love interest went into full psycho mode. I have no patience for him.


And the worst from them all are the main  couple from the After series, Tessa and Hardin. To quote my review: "There are no amounts of alchocol that could erase this book from my brain... Both of them are plain psychotic." 



Who are the worst love interests
you had the displasure to read about?

The Best of 2015: TV shows, movies and music


I finally found the time to do this post. Since I already posted all of my bookish favorites of 2015, I decided to do the same for TV shows, movies and music since they are a big part of my life.
    There is one show that did not make the list that I watched in 2015 but since it was not a 2015 release I decided to leave it out and that is Sherlock. I watched every episode in 2 days and was hooked and I am anxious for the 4th season, especially after The Abominable Bride. 

Favorite TV Shows of 2015


So far in 2016, I am loving some new shows like American Crime Story, Lucifer, Legends of Tomorrow, Shadowhunters and I am hoping for good stuff with Vinyl and The Night Manager.

Favorite Movies of 2015


There are some 2015 I am hoping to watch soon, I just did not make the time yet: The Revenant, Hateful Eight, Carol, Room, Brooklyn, Mad Max: Fury Road, Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Crimson Peak, The Diary of a Teenage Girl and Tale of Tales.
2016 releases I look forward to: Deadpool, Suicide Squad, Allegiant, The BFG, Batman vs Superman, Doctor Strange, X-Men: Apocalypse, Ghostbusters 3, Through the looking glass, Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, A Monster Calls and Pride and prejudice and zombies.

Favorite Music Albums of 2015


My all time favorites released an album this year, I reall enjoyed them, and I discovered Halsey, who is quickly climbing on my favorite artists list.

That is all for my best of post.
What are some of your favorites of 2015?
Do we have some in common or 
you didnt like something on my list?
Anything you would like to recommend?

The beautiful struggle of a girl desperate for the one relationship that has caused her the most pain.Cassie O'Malley has spent the past two and a half years in a mental institution—dumped there by her mother, against her will. Now, at 18, Cassie emancipates herself, determined to start over. She attends college, forms new friendships, and even attempts to start fresh with her mother. But before long, their unhealthy relationship threatens to pull Cassie under once again.

  About LISTEN TO ME: In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart. Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy...exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need. Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him. Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?

Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Were Spoiled For


Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by GingerReadsLainey. You can join the Goodreads group here and check out the topics.
This weeks topic is books you were spoiled for. There are not that many books that were spoiled to me because I learned my lesson on these five so I am more careful with reading book reviews.


The ending to this book for was spoiled to me by Goodreds, it is my fault really, I went ahead and read some reviews that did not have a warning about spoilers anywhere and ruined this wonderful trilogy for me. I still havent read this book, but hopefully I will with time.


Well, obviously the show spoiled me for the books, but I am currently buying all of them in Croatian so I will give them a shot.


I read this a few months after it released and a friend excitedly told me what happens but it did not ruin this book for me because I honestly think I would have expected it nonetheless.


Again, I read it 3 months after its release so there was not tha much hype surrounding it as there is now, but still, some people just dont know how to shut up so I knew what will happen.


I blame this on the internet in general. I still havent read it, dont know if I ever will considering, well, everything that was spoiled to me. The day this book came out and the internet exploded I was so pissed of with how people just carelessly spoiled the shit out of this book.



What are some of the books you were spoiled for?
