Top 5 Wednesday #3: Characters You’d Want as Family

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY is a weekly meme created by Lainey  GingerReadsLainey on Youtube. You get a new topic every Wednesday, and list your top 5 according to the topic. You could join by clicking here.

This month is going to be Top 5 Wednesday Rewind Month! We have to pic some topics we missed or that happened before we joined the Top 5 Wednesday family! And I’ve deciced that I’m going to do the topic for September 2017 : Characters You’d Want as Family!



As much as I want Arthur Weasley to be my fictional father, I would never had the nerve to separate him from his fictional family because The Weasleys are perfect for what they are!

So I choose my other favorite fictional father, Shalom Singer from The Selection series. He’s literally the best father figure I’ve ever read in any books. He always support her children and only want the best for them. He’s so understanding and he had infinite love that he won’t mind to show to his every child.


The award for world’s best mother goes to Beverly Goldberg from The Goldbergs TV series aired on ABC. This is also my favorite family/drama/comedy series, she’s not entirely fictional because her character is based on the creator’s  own mother. Beverly is a smotherer but God knows it’s just because she loves her children so much!

Older Brother

You probably know that I love the sibling relationship between Zelie and Tzain in Children of Blood and Bone. Tzain is a perfect brother figure, he works so hard to provide for his family, he always had her sister’s back no matter how much shits her sister put them through.

Younger Sister

Morrigan Crow from Nevermoor book! That girl got sass and humor which I really adore, she’s a little bit rascal and ignorant but her heart is in the right place. She would never hold grudge no matter how bad others treat her. She loves going on a “little” adventure and I bet it would make my fictional mother freak out.


I’m not a pet person, but I will never say no if Sam barking at my front yard and wants to live with me! Sam is the funny and super friendly dog from Granted, he’s a loyal friend and will do anything to help you and keep you company!

Let's Chat!

Who’s your top 5 fictional family? Do you agree with my choices here?

The Burning Maze (The Trials of Apollo #3)



Title: The Burning Maze
Author: Rick Riordan
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Pages: 448 pages
Year of Publication: 2018
Rating: (1)


OMG I was in complete mess after reading this and I was crying in the corner of my room for several hours! I can’t believe Uncle Rick did this to me! I CAN’T EVEN… I can’t forgive him for what he’s done!


In this third book, Lester Papadopoulos, a former olympian God called Apollo along with his master Meg, daughter of Demeter embark a journey to free the third Oracle from the hands of Triumvirate, the evil Roman emperors. To do so they have to enter the dangerous and burning maze of Daedalus (yes, the infamous labyrinth is back) to find the oracle in the center of the maze. In this journey they got some help from our favorite satyr Grover, also from some demigods and dryads.

I just started this book and I love the worldbuilding, I haven’t the slightest idea where the the story will lead but so far I enjoy reading the author’s idea of the future. And the characters are adorable too!

I can’t talk to you about this book right now, I need some time alone and cry my heart out until I dry, because this is the worst thing Uncle Rick ever done to me!

Book-ish, Bookish Tag

Coffee Book Tag


I saw this really fun book tag a long time ago, I made the draft immediately and it was completely forgotten until today! Sadly I don’t remember where I saw this tag and I don’t even know who created this tag, so if you know please tell me so I can pingback to them!

Black Coffee: Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.


I’m gonna go with The Raven Cycle, I don’t know if it’s just me but I feel like this series is really hard to get into. With that lyrical writing, purple prose, slow plot, and confusing worldbuilding, I ‘m amaze by how many people love this series. But I have to admit that the characters are great!

Peppermint Mocha: Name a book that gets more popular during the winter or a festive time of year


I thinks it’s Harry Potter? For some reason winter always remind me of Harry Potter. I don’t know if anyone feel the same, let me know if you feel like this too!

Hot Chocolate: What is your favourite children’s book?

Okay, again, I’m gonna go with Harry Potter. Because this is the series that got me into reading and I will forever treasure them!

Double Shot of Espresso: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish 


It’s totally Children of Blood and Bone! That book is full of emotions and I literally could feel them, it made me nervous and restless! IT IS THE BEST BOOK!


Starbucks: Name a book you see everywhere 



I have to say ACOTAR. This book is everywhere but I’m not even interested to read that series, I just have a feeling that I won’t like it.

Top 5 Wednesday #2: Classes Based on Books/Characters

Adamire (1)

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY is a weekly meme created by Lainey  GingerReadsLainey on Youtube. You get a new topic every Wednesday, and list your top 5 according to the topic. You could join by clicking here.

This month is going to be Top 5 Wednesday Rewind Month! We have to pic some topics we missed or that happened before we joined the Top 5 Wednesday family! And I’ve deciced that I’m going to do the topic for September 6th 2017 : Classes Based on Books/Characters because it’s super fun!!

Let’s discuss some classes you’d like to take either based on books or based on characters’ skills. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO NOT USE HARRY POTTER, because that is too easy. You are supposed to make up your own classes. For example, you could use How to Dismantle a Dystopian Regime for The Hunger Games or Archery 101 with Katniss

How to be Both Charming and Funny to Attract Woman



Teacher: Captain Thorne

There is nobody who could teach this class better than my captain Thorne! And I know y’all would agree with me!


Weep: The Forgotten City



Teacher: Lazlo Strange

When it comes to Weep, Lazlo is the master. The man has done 17 years of research about it!



How to Build Amazing Things From Total Crap



Teacher: Leo Valdez

If you want to learn some DIY project or want to build literally anything, the son of Hephaestus will come in handy. And Leo is the best of them all.

Hacking Made Easy

30078820_446211769154924_2939690902618112000_nTeacher: Kady Grant

In this class Kady Grant will teach you all about hacking, and this skill would come in handy for your everyday lives, and would be most useful in battlefield arena involving some maniac AI.

How to Speak Latin to Talk to Trees

He might be grumpy and all but he’s the best teacher for this particular subject. Anybody could speak Latin, but only Ronan could speak Latin to trees!

If your favorite character would teach a class, what would they teach?

Wrap-Up: April 2018

I don’t have much time to read in this month because I just started my new job as a medical doctor in a very big hospital. The shift is killing me, and when I’m off duty I found sleep is a very precious thing to do, so yeah I have a very little time to read, but that didn’t stop me to buy more books, noooo. So let’s jump in to the wrap-up!

the Mixologist

Even though I have such a little time to read but apparently I’ve got no problem in buying a bunch of books that I don’t know when I’m going to read! And yes, I bought all of this for myself, no ARCs or books that sent to me by the publishers. And now I’m broke af 😂

Yeah I originally planned to read all of this book but you know, I’m a moody reader so I just pick whatever book that suit my mood for the next read. And I ended up with…..

Publisher: Flatiron Books
Pages: 320 pages
Year of Publication: 2018
In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.

But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.

As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection…because one wrong move could lead to her death. 

How could anyone not intrigued by this blurb? I mean, have you read this?! It’s a SciFi/Fantasy book that I’m sure going to hype! How can I get myself an ARC of this book please?!

International Bookworms

the best flower shop in town

International Bookworms is a meme created by Ayla for international bookish people. Every prompt will have a linkup post to share your own content and read/comment on others. It’s all about promoting and supporting International bloggers, of course!

This week’s prompt is Bookish Road Trip (Where would you go on your bookish road trip? Would you visit fictional worlds? Cities you read about? Would you visit any international bookworm friends?)

For all my life, if someone asked me which fictional world I’d love to visit, my answer will always be Hogwarts. But recently, I read a book in which I discovered a fantastic fictional world I’d die to visit, or even forever live in it.

It’s none other than Nevermoor, if you love middle grade fantasy please just pick up this book, or if you want to try to read some good middle grade fantasy then Nevermoor is a good book to start with (click the cover to go to the GR page).


I’m amazed by the town of Nevermoor from the very first! I’ve never seen so much magic in a book (well, besides Hogwarts of course), there’s this hotel in Nevermoor called hotel Deucalion and it’s literally the best place to live, one of the hotel staff is a magnificat and she’s hilarious, there are smoke parlour, and the room is magical! I won’t stop telling you how great this book is so you better read this 💋
