I love a Six for Sunday and this prompt is speaking to me in volumes. Although in saying that I haven’t had many new series books for a while. Although I’m happy that a few faves have added new books mixing it up once again. I probably won’t be taking part for the LGBT ones as I’ve not really read many, if any of these but I’m open to recommendations so hit me. As I’ve mentioned I’m loving taking advantage of my library via Libby supporting from afar.
So without further ado….
I really love Six For Sunday but as I say I probably won’t be involved in June but I’m open to the recommendations. As I type I’m sat in my garden with a glass of water an iced coffee listening to.
I love a Six For Sunday but it’s not always relevant to me or my bookish choices but this week I couldn’t resist. Today’s prompt is favourite characters from a series. I don’t read many books that are series based these days but I sure do have some favourites.
Edward Cullen – I was late to the Twilight party, saying that when I started the series I quickly devoured them reading one book a week. I loved the tale and was very much Team Edward.
Jace Herondale – The Mortal Instruments well and truly got under my skin. When the film was released I wasn’t sure on the casting for Jace and same goes for the TV series but in watching both I can kind of see the thinking but my most favourite is the one in my minds eye. I’m a sucker for a blonde.
Clary Fray – Also from Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments. I really must work out where I got to and must catch up on the Netflix series. I loved seeing the change in Clary at the beginning she was weak but seeing her delve into herself and unleash her strength was empowering.
Patch Cipriano – I remember a colleague of mine recommended this series to me. It was when I was reading a lot more fantasy and this was another series of angels. I fell for Patch just like Nora did although ashamedly I have the entire series but I have a feeling I haven’t actually read the final book.
Angela Clark& Jenny Lopez I’m seriously behind on the I Heart series but I couldn’t not fall in love with Angela & Jenny they are best mates and they are definitely my sort of girls. I believe the next book on my list is I Heart Paris.
These are just a handful of my favourites its remarkable how many you think of in end. I have read some great series and there’s some I still need to complete. I would love to know your thoughts…
Also remember I will be doing a Q&A hopefully Friday so send me the questions you would love to know….
It’s Sunday again and here’s the latest Six for Sunday, and today’s prompt is Books that I predict to be 5 🌟
Need I say anymore I’m so annoyed though as I’ve had a few of these for a while. I would have devoured Strangers when it pinged in but I was just getting over my headaches. The plus from that is it slowed me down and made me realise one I need to go back to drinking more water which I am now and two I can’t do without books. Hoping to read a short and then I’m diving into Strangers today. I very nearly did last night but I needed some time after re-Reading my first ever Paige Toon read it was a moment I needed to take a breather…do let me know your thoughts on any of these beauties.
I love a Six for Sunday after a week long headache I’m back in the game as so to speak. I’m a lot better now although I feel my lack of usual routine isn’t helping so I’m embracing the sunshine with a coffee and a glass of water as I finalise my thoughts for this weeks prompt. I sadly haven’t read a physical or ebook since finishing the amazing The Other Passenger by Louise Candlish I have spent a little time listening to David Jason’s Only Fools and stories.
This is one that shocks people especially as I’ve had a physical copy for ages. My friends who I got a flight to America with were laughing at the state of me following watching this beauty.
I truly loved To Kill A Mockingbird- I knew the story but couldn’t remember if I had read it at school or not. I purchased a vintage beauty from Waterstones and truly loved everything about it. I was working in the charity shop back then and I found a hardback copy which I grabbed I also have this as an audiobook so really I have zero excuses.
It was everything and more….A few years back I watched and loved the TV adaption of this and then I said I needed to rectify that and sadly I’ve still not read it.
I got into the Hunger Games late and I truly loved it, so much so I didn’t want it to end. So I leant my copy of this to a friend so I couldn’t finish it and I still haven’t….
Ever since I picked up Rebecca from the charity shop I was volunteering in I’ve been a massive fan of this lady and I have a physical copy of this that I’ve been saying I will read for a while now.
I’m such a massive fan of Vicky Walters…in reading her kindness cafe I found out about this I read the short connected to this and was instantly hooked but it’s another that’s sat on my shelf.
I’m such a fan of the Six for Sunday prompt and seeing as I have so much time on my hands I should be more organised to participate more. You have to look at the positives during this strange time we are living in.
Today’s prompt is characters who I’d like to be like. Seeing as me and Catriona are almost halfway through our Paige Toon read-along I thought I would attempt to answer this prompt with her characters. From the books I’ve been reading so far…
I had met Meg in the first Jessie Jefferson novel but in reading Johnny Be Good, Baby Be Mine and Johnny’s Girl I now feel like I know her a lot more. Meg is gutsy, fun and knows what she wants.
In re-listening to Thirteen Weddings I was once again bowled over by Lockie’s confidence and zest for life. It’s inspiring especially during these crazy times we’re living in right now.
Alice’s love story is one that I long for, its full of passion and the intensity blew my mind. I also loved how she knew deep down that her love was real and that what is meant to be will be.
Bridget pops up in a number of books and was my first leading lady as the first Paige Toon book that I read was The Last Piece of my Heart. In this read-along I’ve read her in this and in Thirteen Weddings I’m looking forward to re-reading my first Paige novel as she seems like a different person to the confident and in some was brash good friend and party girl. I really want to be a lot more like Bridget.
Lily might be young but she knows what she wants. Her passion for life, her eye for photography and her love for Ben had me from the off.
Bronte is adorable yet frustrating. I love how she’s real and how she likes to stick to her guns to a point. I also love how career driven she is even if her head is a jumble in the love triangle she has got herself into.
I love a Six for Sunday post and seeing as I’m working for part of today I’m not getting in a great deal of self care. Although I do hope to get a decent amount of reading in later I want to make the most of the last few days of July. I’m still a few short from my TBR post but I have added a few in so we shall see how I fair come Wednesday when I hope to have my wrap up post completed and up for your viewing.
So Ice Cream combinations….
I discovered Abby Clements a few Christmas’s ago when I devoured Meet Me Under the Mistletoe. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t read any of these ice cream based treats. I sure do hope to soon.
This one has lots of ice cream based goodness it still makes me smile thinking about this story.
This weeks prompt has shown me there are a lot of good books that I’m still to read. I’m a huge fan of Jenny Colgan but I haven’t read anything from her in such a long time. I think my impending holiday at the end of August May may mean I can catch up on some tasty treats. From this weeks list the only book I’ve read is Holly Hepburn’s Picture House by the sea.
Have you read any of these? If so where should I start.
