Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together


I’m so excited for today’s prompt because I really need to see what everyone has been watching and I also want to share my favorite Drama/Comedy series that I have been watching for years!

Modern Family

I’ve been binge-watching this series for the last three months, I have no idea why I didn’t watch this series sooner!

Modern family is about three diverse families. Jay Pritchett is remarried to a much younger latina, Gloria and has a step son. Jay has two children from her previous marriage, Claire who married to Phil Dunphy and has 3 children, and Mitchell who married with Cameron Tucker and adopt an asian baby!

This family is disastrous most of the time but also sweet and supporting! I love how every families have their own issues but managed to involve the big family into their problems. This show is hillarious!


The Goldbergs

The Goldbergs is one of my favorite family show. Set in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, the story follows little Adam, the youngest of three siblings who’s also a geek and obsessed with movie making. The movie is entirely from Adam’s POV as he sees life in the 80’s through his lazy eyes and camera lens.

He always filmed his activities in the house with his video tape, mostly the shouting at each other part, which I found very hilarious because the scenes are always relatable, it’s the very problems we may have faced in our house.

I actually have write a blog post abut this series, you can read it here if you want!


The Middle

Oh God I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH, and I’m in literal tears when they end this series last year after a long nine season!

It’s about a lower middle class family lives in Indiana and try to get a hold of their live by working multiple jobs while raising three children. I love every characters they are so unique. this show is the most relatable show about family I’ve ever seen in a while!


Black-ish

Black-ish is about an upper middle class African-American family. The story is so refreshing, it tackle a lot of issues in the community, mainly racism.


Fresh Off the Boat

Another diverse TV show you can watch. The story follows a family of Taiwanese from the point of view of Eddie Huang, the middle child. His father is living the dream by opening a steak restaurant, his mother struggles with cultural clash, his younger brothers fit in perfectly while Eddie struggles to find a seat in cafetaria because of his lunch his mother made.

giphy (25)

This show give us an understanding of the struggle to be an immigrant, it’s so hillarious!

Top Ten Tuesday: Welcome Back to (Magic and All Kind of Superpower) School


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together


This week’s prompt is anything related to school so I choose to feature my favorite books with magic school and school for kid with extraordinary abilities setting! And ummm of course they’re mostly middle-grade books, I hope you’re not tired of me recommending you MG books 😂

Harry Potter

Why of course I have to include this book on the list! It would be a sin if I don’t, I mean it’s kinda like the pioneer of magic school!

Hogwarts is where it all started for me, I’m pretty sure it’s the same for you too!

Percy Jackson and the Olympian

It’s not exactly a school, it’s more like a camp, but it’s home to Demigods so you can count this one in!

Camp Half Blood is my second favorite place after Hogwarts, there are so many fun activities and so many friendly people!

Keeper of the Lost Cities

There’s this prestigious school for Elves called Foxfire in this book. Grades in Foxfire are called Levels. There are eight levels altogether, but only the first six are available to all elves. The Elite Levels, Levels Seven and Eight, only allow elves with abilities to study and learn there.

Elves has different abilities, but some are not manifested at all. They got some cool abilites like telepath, empath, technopath, mesmer, vanisher, and so many other cool abilities!

Nevermoor

The Wundrous Society is not exactly school, it’s the most prestigious organisation in Nevermoor that allow only extraordinary talented kid.

The School for Good and Evil

It’s the school for good and evil. Where good kids are placed in the school for good and trained to be Prince or Princess while the bad kids are placed in the school for evil where they are trained to be evil Wizards or Witches! When they are graduated, they become the characters for an actual fairytale!

The Crowns of Croswald

The Hall of Ivy is divided into two programs, The Queens and The Scrivenists. Scrivenists are the discoverers who sketch and record all that they see and have photographic memory.  And The Queens are who the Scrivenerist get assigned to serve once they graduate from school.

I have to say that the school is very similar to Hogwarts though. It has potion study, transfiguraton, a dining hall with ghosts, and so many more resemblances to HP.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

It’s a home for the peculiars! They each have unique abilities that nobody could ever think of! Some of the abilities are flying, see monsters, invisible, could wake the dead, has bees inside his body, and so many other peculiar abilities!

Miss Peregrine is a ymbryne and the headmistress of her children’s-home, she keep the home in time loop so they don’t age a second!

Legend of Greg

There is this secret society of dwarves underground where the dwarf kids hang out and learn to become a proper dwarf. Some of the dwarves abilities are incredible, they could turn to stone in a great danger (the training is painful though)!! They have amazing individual skills too, our main character could grow plants out of nowhere (it sounds lame but believe me it’s surprisingly useful in combat),

Renegades

Renegades remind me so much of Sky High. It’s an elite academy of superhuman who learn to be heroes and protector of the city.

The abilites are super cool, Sketcher is my favorite, he could pull everything he sketch to life! Nightmare could put people to sleep, Cyanide could produce toxins from his body, Red Assassin could make a weapon out of her own blood!

The Magicians

Okay, I run out of idea so I included this adult fantasy book on the list. It’s Hogwarts meet Narnia but it’s much much darker. I like the first book but never continue to read the rest of the series because I lost interest, plus it’s not really my cup of tea, so many adult and serious stuff going on and it makes me sick.

Have you read any of this books? Do you like them? What’s your favorite? Do you know other book with magic or superpower school setting? Let me know!

Top Ten Tuesday: What I Read When I’m in Reading Slump


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together


I really don’t know if I ever been in a reading slump before. I mean, I never get tired of reading, but I always feel bored when I read too many YA fantasy and I always want to read something different whenever I feel like that. So this is what I read when I need a break from YA fantasy:

Light and Cute Romance

I rarely read romance, but this is the first genre I always go back to whenever I got tired of YA fantasy. I always look for something light, fun, and cute, and these are my guilty pleasure:

 

 

Anything by Rick Riordan

Reading books by your favorite author surely help you through reading slump! For me it’s Rick Riordan!

 

 

Middle-Grade Books

Any middle-grade books always work to cure my slump, even if it’s fantasy. Because MG fantasy is somehow different from YA, it’s lighter and more fun, I could always enjoy reading it!

What do you do when you are in reading slump? Do you take a break? Or do you continue reading anyway?

Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


Okay I know this week’s prompt is supposed to be the Mash Up but I really have no idea what books should I mashed up, and also I missed this interesting last week’s prompt so I’m gonna do this instead, top 10 books that lived up to the hype!

 

People have been talking about the magical writing of Laini Taylor and the whimsical world in Strange the Dreamer and I finally read it last year, it instantly become my favorite, I can’t believe I didn’t read it sooner!

The City of Brass is a very magical book with such an interesting story about Djinn! You know I have a soft spot about Djinn and Middle East setting! This book has it all, the characters are flawed but awesome, I can’t get enough of the plot and the wonderful worldbuilding. It was one of my favorite book last year too!

Aru Shah in the End of Time is the first book in Rick Riordan present so this book got the spotlight! Rick Riordan fans all over the world are waiting for this book and it was totally worth it!

You know how hype Illuminae is few years ago, it has the most unique format and a very refreshing story in SciFi genre, of course it’s worth the hype!

Another fabulous work by Jay Kristoff, after Illuminae series, a lot of fans are looking forward to another Sci-Fi books by him. I honestly a little bit nervous to read Lifel1k3 because I was afraid that it won’t surpass Illuminae but BOY I WAS WRONG!!

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Worlds I’d Want to & Never Want to Live In


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


This week’s prompt is Bookish Worlds I’d Want/Never Want to Live In but I decided to change it a little bit. So I’m gonna list 5 worlds that I’d want to live in and 5 worlds that I’d never want to love in!

Worlds I’d Want to Live In

J.K Rowling Wizarding World

The most cliche answer of them all, of course I’d want to live in this world, I mean who doesn’t duh?!

Nevermoor

Nevermor is the second most wonderful magic world that I’d want to live in. Everything about it are magical, there’s this hotel in Nevermoor called Hotel Deucalion and it’s so amazing, there are so many magical being at that hotel!

Croswald

Croswald is another magical city from The Crowns of Croswald book, the wold is pretty impressive, it has several similarities to J.K Rowling Wizarding World but it still unique in it’s own way.

Willy Wonka Factory

No explanation needed, okay!

Warcross

I want to live in future Japan where there was Neurolink! And I really want to try Warcross!

Worlds I’d Never Want to Live In

Rick Riordan’s Universe

I really adore all of your universe Uncle Rick, I really do. But I’d never want to be part of the world full of dangerous adventure and monstrous things!

Scythe

A world where there’s no natural death, the only way of die is to be gleaned by a Scythe. The world is in perfect order, there’s nothing to achieve because humanity has reached the highest level of achievement. Well that, is so boring. I’d rather die of a heart attack than be “gleaned” by someone who wear bright cape.

Gotham City

I’d never think about it! I don’t know why there are civillian in that City.

Narnia

Gah, just no!

The City of Ember

I’ve read this book a long time ago and it’s suddenly pop into my head when I think of which world I’d never want to live in. Yes, this is definitely one of those. A city underground? Please. How could one even function? I’d never made it through one day.

Which fictional world you’d want and never want to live in?
