Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and for those of us who don’t have plans, the best way to spend the holiday is with a good book. And why not a book with the man of your dreams? Here’s who I plan on spending my V-Day with. Who’s your favorite book boyfriend? Let me know in the comments below!

1. Owen Gentry (Confess)

I just finished this book and I’m still not over it. Owen is amazing. He’s cute, funny, and so incredibly sweet. This book was incredible and so is Owen.

2. Will Herondale (The Infernal Devices)

81tPvW3NBvL

I love Will. Not only does he love books but he quotes them with ease. He’s a man after my own heart.

3. Etienne St. Clair (Anna and the French Kiss)

St. Clair is a Brit who grew up in America who can speak French. Talk about multicultural. Besides that he’s also hot, sweet, and an all around good guy.

4. Josh Wasserstein (Isla and the Happily Ever After)

Oh Josh. He’s got some issues that he needs to work through but despite his struggles he still mentions to be so incredibly loving towards Isla and it’s wonderful.

5. Prince Kai (The Lunar Chronicles)

Almost every guy in The Lunar Chronicles is one of my book boyfriends but Kai has a special place in my heart. The way he falls so hard for Cinder is so endearing and cute.

6. Levi (Fangirl)

Levi is such a cute, tall dork. I love how he just gets Cath and her fangirl ways. Any guy that willingly listens to a girl read her fanfiction is a great guy in my book.

7. Prince Maxon Schreave (The Selection)

Maxon and America are my OTP. The way Maxon falls head over heels for America and loves everything about her is too cute for words. He treats her like she’s already his queen.

8. Tobias “Four” Eaton (Divergent)

Four is the definition of having a hard shell but being such a softy on the inside. He’s so protective of Tris and just loves her so much. It’s unbelievable.

9. Daemon Black (The Lux Series)

12578077-1

Daemon has such a bad boy persona and although I hate to admit it I’m a sucker for a bad boy with a nice center. And Daemon is just that and more.

10. Raffe (Angelfall)

51z+dDB4n5L

Raffe is literally an angel. With wings! Well, kind of. But Raffe isn’t a sweet angel with a halo. He’s got an edge but protagonist Penryn is able to wear him down.

11. Liam Stewart (The Darkest Minds)

10576365

If Liam’s good looks don’t immediately suck you in his Southern charm and drawl definitely will. He’s so genuine and kind, and he’ll instantly tug at your heart strings.

12. Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

Adrian is the rich, bad boy you know you shouldn’t want but you just can’t resist his charm. Honestly, though, Adrian has a big heart and he treats his ladies right.

6 Books I Can’t Wait To Read In 2016

Happy New Year! As we begin 2016 I’m absolutely excited for all the great books that are coming out this year. Here’s the top six books that I can’t wait to read.

1. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken (Jan. 5)

819udJxxCmL.jpg

I loved The Darkest Minds trilogy and I can’t wait to read something new by Alexandra Bracken. This novel follows Etta Spencer, a violin prodigy, who can time travel. She gets caught up in a web of trouble that she, of course, didn’t sign up for. Along for the ride is Nicholas Carter who has to help Etta find a stolen object in order to keep her safe. An adventurous, time traveling novel that also includes some romance? Count me in!

2. Stars Above by Marissa Meyer (Feb. 2)

81ygQIXLDNL.jpg

I binged read The Lunar Chronicles last year and it was probably the best series I read in 2015. I was so sad when I finished reading Winter so when I found out Marissa Meyer was releasing a collection of short stories featuring all my favorite characters I was over the moon. Thankfully the wait for this one isn’t long.

3. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare (March 8)

81DD2k8XflL.jpg

The Mortal Instruments is another series I binged read in 2015 and I absolutely fell in love with it. I’m currently finishing Clockwork Princess and then I need to read all the Shadowhunter Academy stories so I’ll definitely be kept busy until the release of Lady Midnight. I’m excited to be sucked back into this amazing world Cassandra Clare has created and I can’t wait to see what happens next with these new characters and the old ones.

4. The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead (April 5)

51+hjWoOmTL.jpg

I’ve been in love with Mead’s writing since the Vampire Academy series so when Bloodlines ended I was devastated. Therefore, when I heard Mead was coming out with a new series (not in the Vampire Academy world) I was over the moon. I can’t wait to jump into this new world filled with arranged marriages and secret romances. I know it’ll be great!

5. The Crown by Kiera Cass (May 3)

61l6hHmW9mL.jpg

The next and final book in The Selection series comes out this year and I can’t wait to read it! But I’m also sad to see this series go. I’ve been obsessed with this series for so long that’ll it be bittersweet to see it come to an end. But I also really need to know what happens to America. And Eadlyn, of course. But mostly America.

6. Heartless by Marissa Meyer (Nov. 8)

Meyer’s retelling of fairytales in The Lunar Chronicles was so well done that I know her retelling of Alice in Wonderland in the form of the Queen of Hearts backstory will be amazing! I’m excited to read something new from Meyer although I’m still 100 percent open to a Lunar Chronicles spinoff series.

What books are you excited to read in 2016? Let me know in the comments below! Happy New Year!

The Ultimate Man Crush Monday Is …

large

Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments! 

Winning with 66.67 percent of the votes, Jace has been declared the ultimate Man Crush. With his fierce, golden eyes, Shadowhunter bod, and magical way with words it’s no surprise he’s the winner. I fell in love with Jace when I quickly read through the whole Mortal Instruments series these past few months and I still enjoy his way with words.

In a not so far off second place was, Maxon Schreave. Loveable, a little dorky, and now a hot dad, Maxon is totally crush-worthy and I’m surprised this final battle wasn’t closer. Maxon is also known for his excellent love quotes and sweeping women off their feet. He’s the kind of prince some girls dream about. If you haven’t checked him out in The Selection series yet you absolutely must. You’ll fall in love.

This wraps up my Man Crush Monday series. To learn more about what’ll be happening (or not happening) with MCMs and WCWs in the future just click the link for more information and stay tuned for the Woman Crush Wednesday face off.

Man Crush Monday: Eikko (Erik)

Yss6hlT

I don’t care what anyone says, if Erik doesn’t end up with Eadlyn in the next Selection book I’m going to be the most upset. I don’t think I’ll forgive Kiera Cass. I really don’t think I could.

Erik is fantastic. He speaks both English and Finnish and he just gets Eadlyn better than anyone. He’s cute and kind of shy and always knows the perfect thing to say. Did I mention he’s cute?

Unfortunately we didn’t get to see a lot of him in The Heir because technically he’s not a part of Eadlyn’s selection but I saw enough of him to fall head over heels. Honestly, he made the book for me and I hope to see plenty more of him in the next one.

If you have no idea who Erik is please do yourself a favor and read The Selection series. I’m pretty sure I talk about this series at least once a week so if I haven’t convinced you to read it yet I don’t know what will.

If you have read the books vote in my poll for who you think Eadlyn should end up with (*cough* Erik *cough*). Also if you have a book hottie you think should be next week’s Man Crush Monday let me know in the comments below.

I remembered the feeling of my first date with Hale, how I felt when I was sure he’d peeled everything back and had seen the real me. This time, I felt like I was on the other side of that, looking past duty and worry and rank, seeing the true heart of a person. 

And [Erik] was so beautiful. – The Heir

POLL: Which One of Kiera Cass’ Novels Has The Best Cover?

FotorCreated

The cover of Kiera Cass’ newest (actually rereleased) novel, The Siren, was revealed yesterday and it’s just as gorgeous if not more so than all The Selection series covers. Actually is it more gorgeous? Vote in the poll to cast your vote for the best cover. If I had to choose I’d go with The Heir but that’s just my personal opinion. What’s yours?

 

Results of last week’s poll:

Which book character did Shailene Woodley play best?

With 50 percent of the vote the winner is Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars. I don’t know though. I really liked her as Aimme in The Spectacular Now. But you guys chose the winner so I won’t argue. Stay tuned next week to find out the results of this week’s poll.

Woman Crush Wednesday: Celeste Newsome

If you haven’t read The Selection series and don’t want to be spoiled stop reading here. Seriously. Don’t read any further. Got it? Good.

Although Celeste started as the girl to hate in the series she evolved into a girl that I respected and admired by the end of the series and I think almost everyone fan of the series can agree it was sad to see her go.

Besides that, however, when she did come around she became the champion of the Selection girls. Once she stopped seeing them as enemies and instead as friends she took that fierceness and used it for good, becoming one of my favorite characters. I especially loved her support for America and thought it was cute when she threatened Maxon, warning him not to break America’s heart. I wish more than anything that she hadn’t been murdered and we could’ve seen her grow up and be a staple in Princess Eadlyn’s (America and Maxon’s daughter) life. Unfortunately, that’s not the case but we can always reread The One, and imagine how Celeste would’ve brightened up America’s Women’s Room.

As we spoke, I could see [Celeste] being accepted by the others as fully as she was now by me. She even looked different with the weight of her secrets cast off from her. Celeste had been raised to be a specific kind of pretty. That beauty depended on covering things up, shifting the light, and seeking to be perfect at all times. But there is a different kind of beauty that comes with humility and honesty, and she was glowing with it now. – The One

Man Crush Monday: Maxon Schreave

62_gallery02_image

If you couldn’t tell I’m really in a Selection mood this week. That’s mainly because the next book in the series, The Heir, comes out next week and I’m super excited. I won’t spoil the series for you but a brief synopsis of the series is it takes place in a Dystopian world where there are eight castes, one being the upper caste and eight being the lowest. The prince chooses his wife by going through the selection, a competition where 35 girls go to the castle to try and win the prince’s heart.

This week’s Man-Crush Monday is no other than the Prince himself, Prince Maxon. Maxon is cute, kind of dorky, and adorable in his lack of experience. He’s willing to put himself in harm’s way to protect others and really cares about his country and how he can make it better for all his castes. He also treats every girl in the selection with kindness and respect, and goes out of his way to make each one of them feel like they’re special.

If you read the Selection series, you’ll be hard pressed not to fall in love with Prince Maxon Schreave. Even Ms. America Singer finds it rather difficult to resist his charm. If you needed any reasons to read these books it would be Prince Maxon. He’s one of a kind.
