Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week we get a new topic for a top ten list.
This week's Topic:
top ten characters i would crush on if i were also a fictional character
This might be a long post, because I have a few more to add to my list, but actually they are all cluttered together :) Anyway, when I saw this week’s topic, my mind first went blank, but then I went to my old reading lists, from a couple years ago, before I started blogging (in August 2011!) I found some books that I seriosuly forgot I had read, and there's some that I remember quite well. It's so interesting, because I see that I read a lot of historical fiction and some Chick-Lit, and it's just interesting to see that I did not read much stories that include characters my age. There's New Adult, which is so freaking awesome, but even a few years ago, when I was 17 through 19, I was craving to read characters my own age, so I do now see myself reading much more New Adult & some Adult, but here's what I did read before August, 2011 :)
- I love Chick-Lit, I do. I love the humor, sometimes it's quirky but really cute, the sometimes realistic situations, and the HEA love, that usually occurs. It's just always a fun read. Some Authors that I read so much, before Blogging, were Emily Giffin (She's one of my favorite Authors!!) Elizabeth Noble, Harriet Evans, Jill Mansell (love her novels!) & Sophie Kinsella, another great writer!
Some of their novels include, Love The One You're With, Something Blue (love this one, seriously, where's the film already?!) Take A Chance On Me, Remember Me?, Can You Keep A Secret?, The Reading Group & A Hopeless Romantic.

- This novel, Commencement By: J. Courtney Sullivan was partially set in a college setting (at Smith College) and it's a really, really good story, with believable characters, that have some realistic situations, and each of the four women just have different personalities, different aspirations etc. I think this came out in 2009, and I remember reading it when it first published :)
- I was in high school, maybe going into my sophomore or junior year, when I read all four of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and yes I saw the two movies, and read that fifth novel, that came out a couple summers ago. I just loved reading about four different characters, and they're, to me, a good feeling type story. There's also My Name is Memory, and I think I read this my freshman year in college, but anyway, this novel looks into the subject of Reincarnation,and anyway, that subject interests me, and to me, it fit well into the story. I liked Daniel a lot, and it was just a good one. All I hope, is that there is a second book, serisouly, because ahh there's an ending that just left me with that "Whoa what?!" type of feeling, so yeah ;)
- I love historical fiction, and haven't read that much lately, but it's a genre that just makes me happy to learn stuff that may or may not have happened, but I love that what if anticipation so here's a few covers below of some of my favorite. Oh, and The Last Queen By: C.W. Gortner is mega awesome in my opinion. I read my senior year of high school, and it deals with Juana of Castile, who was a character that grew on me, and was from the 15th Century. I even researched about her, and she was called crazy, because some say that she killed her husband, as he was poisoned, but there's other theories too, but oh my that Philip, would definitely be considered a bad boy in current modern stories, but he's a bad one, and they do fall in love, and it's a tragic love story, and I loved every freaken page; it was that good! Ok enough of my ranting....
- I love Curtis Sittenfeld's writing. I have read all three of her novels, and her fourth is coming out this summer, and I'm so psyched! I already requested via Edelweiss & hope I'm approved :) Her stories are all really different; one is in a boarding school/high school setting; another is sorta College, but also steps in the shoes of a 'New Adult' and then there's one that is in the perspective of a young girl, all the way to being a middle aged woman, that's also happens to be First Lady.
- And lastly is Palto Alto By: James Franco. Ok, I have to admit, that I have a mega crush on Franco :) You can ask some of my best friends. Anyway, this novel are an assortment of short stories of coming of age stories, that surround young adults, from Palto Alto, California. I thought they were really good, and yeah I wanted to read more, from a few of the stories, so it twas a very good one...and I wish I did not read this one from the library, because if I had my own copy, I would have had him autograph it....I couldn't resist, here's a Pic of him and I a few years back at a film festival in my hometown, and ahh it was a really cool moment for some of my friends and I. So yeah, there was that chance to get an autograph, oh well, next time :)
Ok, that's all I got for now :) Comment below with your link because I would love to see what you all post!
