Favorite/Worst Dads in Literature (Top ten Tuesdays)

For this week’s TTT, The Broke and Bookish have given the topic favorite dads in literature.

I haven’t read that many father-daughter oriented stories, but I’m gonna list out the Dads who caught my attention though they weren’t necessarily the main protagonist.

  1. Mr. Bennet (From Pride & Prejudice)

He is funny, well read and always loves teasing his wife. He is one of the sensible persons in the Bennet household and loves his daughters.

2. Mr.Brenner (Katie Brenner’s dad from My not so Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella)

I think he is the sweetest dad  that I’ve read about this year. He is always supporting Katie even though he just wants his daughter to stay with him instead of the big bad city. He believes in her and trusts that his business will flourish with Katie guiding him. He is responsible for bringing Katie back to her senses. He’s a good dad!

3. Charlie Swan (Bella Swan’s father in The Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer)

He is awkward in revealing his love for his daughter. But a very protective, easy going dad.

4. Mr.Archeron (Feyre’s dad in the A court of thorns and roses series)

I’m not gonna say why because it might become a spoiler , but he is on this list too!!

5. Arthur Weasley (from the Harry Potter series)

We all love the Weasleys!

Worst Dads :

6. Clarkson Schreave (Prince Maxon’s father in Selection series by Kiera Cass)

He is just plain evil and i hated him in the books.

7. Tywin Lannister (from the Game of thrones series by George R R Martin)

For his hatred towards my favorite character Tyrion Lannister, he deserves the worst dad title.

8. Lucius Malfoy (from Harry Potter series)

9. Fallon’s dad from November 9 by Colleen Hoover

10. Lucien’s father ( A court of wings and fury)

Drop a link to your TTT post and will definitely check it out 🙂

 

Ten Authors I’m dying to Meet (Top Ten Tuesdays)

Ok let’s get real, I read YA fiction mostly and most of my favorite authors don’t even tour my country 😥 But this week’s Top ten Tuesday (hosted by Broke and Bookish) topic is about the 10 authors you are dying to meet/already met.

So the ten authors I’m dying to meet even though it’s not a possibility are :

  • J K Rowling

Anyone would understand, right? 😉

  • Meg Cabot

She gave me my first “series” addiction and I love her for that ❤

  • Sarah Dessen

Ahhhh.. the feels you get while reading a Dessen book.. she has this amazing pull that keeps me forever hooked to her.Top Ten Author

  • Colleen Hoover

Same as Sarah Dessen. She wows you away with her words. Some of my favorite quotes in recent times are from her books and i absolutely love Confess.

  • Sophie Kinsella

I have forever been a Kinsella fan, and all my lists include her somehow 😉

  • Sarah J Maas

I want to meet her if only to steal her manuscripts 😛

  • Anuja Chauhan

Now she is an author I actually have the chance of meeting. She is from my country and is like THE most favorite-est author of mine  among Indian writers. She is amazingly funny and is like the Sophie Kinsella of India.

  • George R R Martin

This great man, the only man to be featured in my list, I guess.. How can he create such amazing fictional kingdoms and kill everyone mercilessly. I need to ask him that!!

And last but not the least….

  • Stephenie Meyer

When Twilight hit the stores, I picked it randomly without even checking the description. That was my first paranormal fiction and I was blown away. LITERALLY!! I know the movies spoiled everything especially Kristen Stewart, but Bella and Edward were THE pair for me for a long time. I was lovestruck with Edward Cullen and his intense love. This was the book that made me watch The Vampire Diaries and fall in love with Stefan Salvatore. I blame Stephenie for the misery she caused me with the TVD finale.

That’s it.. 🙂 I know I don’t have life-changing authors in my list, because I’m never into serious reads, there’s enough seriousness in life and I prefer books that make me feel light, happy and fun to read. Reading for Pleasure, always.

Please leave me a link to your blogs – I know i’ll be all green-eyed when i read about the fantastic authors you have already met. If you haven’t and wish to meet, well, i’m here with you sailing that same boat 😉

Ten books I read in a single day (Top ten Tuesdays)

The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish have asked us to list books that you have completed in a single day or the shortest books you have read.

a764d-toptentuesday2

Well, I’m working 10 hours a day and I normally don’t find time to finish a book on the same day itself, but if this happens, especially on a weekday, then that book must have been something good. I’m listing out the top books that were u-n-p-u-t-d-o-w-n-a-b-l-e , that i’ve read recently and over the past.

  • Pride & Prejudice

Seriously, this is my favorite-st classic of all times. I read it during eighth grade for English. We were supposed to read a single chapter that day in class, but that book got me going and when i reached home i threw my bag, hit the couch and did not talk to another human until I finished it. I’m not kidding! And then over the years, I have re-read it multiple times, always finishing it in a single day.

  • A Court of Mist and Fury

It was already late when i finished off with A court of thorns and roses. When there was a *spoiler* suggested towards the end of the first book, when Rhysand talks with Feyre, I couldn’t stop myself and started with the second one in the series. I think it was around 4AM when I finished it. J.U.S.T  A.M.A.Z.I.N.G !!!

  • All of Nancy Drew mysteries

P&P was the first ever romance i read. Before that, I was pretty much into Nancy Drew and Enid Blyton’s books. Everyday i take a new book from our school library, finishing it off by evening and go back again the next day for a new one. My Librarian loved me 😀 Also my mom was super-cool, she never once said complete your homework, and I never did.

  • My Lady Jane

I just finished it and wrote a review few days back. I kept reading the book because it was nothing but fun. I was having a really bad week and this book was my Manna <3.

  • The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E.Smith

I know the pain of long distance relationship and this book had me at the blurb itself. But it was very overwhelming and made me little sad.

  • The One by Kiera Cass

I might have eventually hated this series, but i loved this book. I finished it on the same day that i started probably in the middle of the night after I was done with the second book.

  • All of Sophie Kinsella’s books

If you ask me, the books I prefer and read with much more enthusiasm are the funny ones. Who doesn’t love a book that makes you laugh.

  • Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

I loved this book and couldn’t stop feeling bad for Jack Masselin, who suffers from this rare condition called prosopagnosia or face blindness. How can one not recognize oneself  or your parents or siblings. How cruel !!

  • Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series

These books ❤ Totally bonkers!!! I loved everything about it when i read it years ago.. Gosh makes me so old!!!

  • November 9 by Colleen Hoover

I cannot describe how much i get affected by Colleen Hoover’s books! This book was also a midnight read and i was completely awake and wept myself to sleep 😦

What kind of books do you read and finish off on the same day.. Me thinks, i’m kinda impatient when it comes to series 😛
