Top 5 Most Recent 5 Star Reads

top ten tuesday 4

I haven’t been reading a whole lot lately and I haven’t really adored that many of the books that I have read so I think this is probably going to be less than ten but I’ll try and get close!

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

I mentioned this one in last week’s post and I’ll say it again, it’s amazing.  Fantasy fans and non-fantasy fans should totally read this one.  The romance is perfect, the banter is extremely witty, and the story is fresh.

rebel of the sands

Underwater by Marisa Reichardt

I read this one at the recommendation of a friend and I am so glad that I did.  It’s the story of Morgan who believes she had something to do with a fatal shooting at her school.  She becomes afraid to leave her apartment but that starts to change when a new boy moves in next door.  While the story was a little slow at times, the writing more than made up for it.

Underwater

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer

Is this one really a surprise to anyone?  Marissa Meyer made herself one of my favorite authors with this series and it’s finale was no exception.  Winter was probably the best of the series and I loved how everything ended.  I haven’t read Stars Above yet but I do expect another five star read from that one.

Winter

The Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett

When this one first came out, everyone was talking about it and telling me to read it.  I picked it up with very low expectations (hype usually makes me nervous) but I ended up adoring it!  Bex and Jack were perfect together and their story was full of adventure, romance, and intrigue.  It’s probably one of my all time favorite contemporary novels.

The Anatomical Shape of a Heart

Wolf by Wolf (Wolf by Wolf #1) by Ryan Graudin

Wolf By Wolf was one of those books that I predicted I would love and I was right.  I’m a huge history buff and anything to do with Nazi history really gets my attention.  While this is alternative history, it was still fascinating and contained enough actual historical references for me to love it.

Have you read any of these?  Did they make your list of five star reads?  What books were on your list?

Top Ten Books I Love But Don’t Talk About Enough

top ten tuesday 4

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about books that I love but haven’t talked about enough.  I think I sometimes read so many books that I forget to really talk about some of them so here are a few!

1. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

I read this one recently but it was during my blogging break and I haven’t really talked to anyone about it other than my IRL friends.  It was exactly what I was looking for in a fantasy novel.  It was fast-paced, full of quick-witted characters, a wonderful romance, and enough of a cliffhanger that I’m eagerly awaiting the sequel.  While this one is very obviously the start of a new series, there is plenty going on to keep readers on the edge of their seats and I think people that aren’t even fantasy fans could love it.

rebel of the sands

2. Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

I read this one last year and adored it.  It’s the story of a pair of friends, Emmy and Oliver, who are reunited after 10 years.  Oliver was kidnapped by his father and Emmy’s life changed forever that day.  When he returns, their friendship turns into something even more than it was before.  I loved Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway and I really loved that even though this was a much tougher subject she still managed to imbue a sense of humor throughout.  It was a really quick, cute read.

Emmy & Oliver

3. The Royal We by Heather Cocks, Jessica Morgan

I read this while on vacation last year and it was totally my kind of book.  Bex is an American going to school in London and she just happens to meet Prince Nicholas.  In fact, she starts dating him.  It’s a hefty book but it’s amazing from start to finish.  What girl doesn’t dream of meeting a prince and falling in love with him and becoming part of the royal family?  However, it’s not all perfect for Bex and Nick.  They have very realistic struggles and I think that’s what made me love this book even more than I already did.

The Royal We

4. The Deal (Off-Campus #1) by Elle Kennedy

I’ll admit that the cover might have been the initial draw for this one.  Once I stopped staring at it though and actually started the book, I loved it.  It’s one of my favorite new adult books even though it is quite predictable.  I really just loved the chemistry between the two main characters and the secondary characters were some of the best I’ve read.

The Deal

5. Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay

I’m a big fan of all of Stacey Jay’s books and I feel like I don’t talk enough about any of them but especially this one.  Princess of Thorns follows Sleeping Beauty’s daughter and she is one fierce girl.  She’s disguised as a boy for most of the book so that she can rescue her brother and she acts more like a guy than a girl, at least for her time period.  She’s very independent, a little untrustworthy, but totally great.  She’s by far the best part about this book though I’m a fan of the rest of it too.

Princess of Thorns

6. Whatever Life Throws At You by Julie Cross

This is another new adult book that I really didn’t talk about enough when I read it.  Just like The Deal, this one focuses on sports but in this case it’s baseball, not hockey.  Annie’s dad is the new pitching coach for the Kansas City Royals, making the rookie pitcher off limits to her.  That doesn’t stop them from having amazing chemistry, witty banter, and some steamy scenes!

Whatever Life Throws At You

7. #scandal by Sarah Ockler

I read this one months before it came out (I’m impatient when it comes to Sarah Ockler books) and because of that I think I didn’t really push it enough when it actually hit shelves.  It’s about Lucy who is in love with her best friend’s boyfriend and it turns out he just might feel the same way.  However, before they are able to let her know, it becomes public knowledge and Lucy is labeled a backstabber, a slut, and worse.  I love how Lucy handled things and the mystery of who was behind leaking her hook up with Cole.

scandal

8. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

The main character in Prisoner of Night and Fog, Gretchen, has grown up as part of the Nazi party, a favorite pet to Adolf Hitler.  She’s loyal to him and never questions him until she meets a young Jewish reporter who claims to know more about her father’s death than she does.  As she gets to know him and finds out more about what really happened, she becomes disillusioned with the Nazi party and Hitler and has to decide who she will ultimately side with.

Prisoner of Night and Fog

9. Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas

Now that I think about this one, I really think I need to re-read it soon.  Ask Again Later is an extremely cute romantic comedy about a girl who receives two invites to the prom and flips a coin to see who she should go with.  The weird thing is though, when she flips the coin, she actually gets to live out both dates.  It’s extremely cute and so funny.

Ask Again Later

10. How To Love by Katie Cotugno

I know I talked about this one a lot when it first came out but it’s been a while so I wanted to include it.  How To Love is one of my favorite contemporary novels.  It’s more serious but it’s so cute.  It alternates between the past and present and I loved Reena and Sawyer the whole time.  I also loved Hannah, their daughter, and how she actually played a big role throughout the book.

How To Love

Top Ten Blogs That Inspire Me

top ten tuesday 4

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday was a freebie so I decided to branch out a bit and talk about some amazing blogs that inspire me to try and be a better blogger.

1. The Perpetual Page-Turner

perpetual-page-turner

I have been following Jamie’s blog for years and I am constantly impressed by everything she does.  Her creativity knows no bounds.  I really want to try and bring some more personal posts to my blog like she does.  I’d also like to create just one feature as awesome as all of hers.  I love her Save The Date posts, If We Were Having Coffee posts, and of course Top Ten Tuesday.

2. A Perfection Called Books

A Perfection Called Books

Where do I even begin with Rachel’s blog?  I adore everything about it but I think it’s her support for debut authors that really impresses me.  I always attempt to participate in debut challenges but Rachel just takes it above and beyond.  It also doesn’t hurt that she has awesome discussions on her blog.  I want to be able to come up with great discussion topics like she does.

3. Icey Books

IceyBOoks

Hafsah is a blogger that I have followed since the very beginning and over the years the things she has done with her blog have shocked and impressed me.  She is always coming up with creative new features and her Waiting on Wednesday posts always manage to feature books that I know nothing about.  Also, she has an amazing design site and yet she still manages to keep up her blog.  That takes dedication.

4. Lost In Literature

Lost In Lit

Lisa and Becca are both amazing bloggers and Instagrammers.  I don’t know how they both manage to read so many books but it seems like they are always posting about the hottest new releases.  I love that their reviews are written in a more informal style and invite readers to chat about them in the comments.  I really want to open discussions in my comments like they do.

5. The Irish Banana Review

IrishBanana

Hannah is the blog tour queen!  She runs Irish Banana Blog Tours and she participates in a ton of the blog tours that she puts together.  I have no clue how she does it.  I also really want her to do my makeup.  She has incredible taste in makeup and I love how she incorporates it into her blog.  I’d love to figure out how to incorporate some of my other loves into my blog.

6. Cuddlebuggery Book Blog

Cuddlebuggery

Cuddlebuggery manages to post all the things!  They post reviews, TV reviews, bookish news, and so much more.  Not only that, they might post some of the snarkiest, funniest posts ever!  The amount of personality in one blog seriously blows my mind.

7. Bookiemoji

header-logo-bookiemoji-04

Crystal and Jenna impressed me long before they got together and created Bookiemoji but I can’t tell you how excited I became when two of my favorite bloggers got together and created one epic blog.  Their use of GIFs is just plain perfect and I love how their reviews include just enough info to entice me without feeling like too much.  One day I hope to find someone I connect with as much as Jenna and Crystal do.

8. Maji Bookshelf

Maji Bookshelf

I can’t tell you how many recommendations I have gotten from this blog.  I might be partial to it because we seem to like a lot of the same books but that’s not the only reason.  Their graphics are gorgeous and their posts are always fresh and quick reads.  They don’t just post reviews but they also don’t just post memes.  There is the perfect mix of posts and I admit that I haven’t yet found that perfect mix for my blog but I’m working on it.

9. My Friends Are Fiction

my friends are fiction

Lego Cover Art.  What more do I need to say?  Seriously, though.  How creative and fun is that?  Kristen is incredibly nice and she also posts a ton of interviews, something I don’t think there are enough of these days.  I’m also seriously impressed by her interview questions.  They are so thoughtful and I always end up learning new things from her posts.

10. My Not So Real Life

header-1

Last but definitely not least I have to give a shoutout to Aneeqah.  Her discussion posts are amazing and insightful and give me all the thoughts.  Her recent post about book bloggers making money sparked quite the discussion and I want to be able to do that with my discussion posts.  And to top it all off, she’s applying for colleges.  I don’t know how she manages it all but she does.  I need to take a page out of her book!

I can’t do justice to these bloggers but if you don’t already follow them, please do.  You will not regret it.  I’m going to continue taking inspiration from their blogs and hope that some of their creativity rubs off on me.

Who are some bloggers that inspire you?

Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR

top ten tuesday 4

I am the worst when it comes to adding books to my TBR.  It doesn’t help that the ALA MW conference took place a few weeks ago.  I went through everybody’s book hauls and added so many new titles to my TBR.  Oops.  Here are 10 recent adds.  Hopefully you find something new to add to your TBR.

1. The Odds of Lightning by Jocelyn Davies

22433390

I adore the cover of this one and it sounds like my kind of book.  Four former friends embark on an all night adventure the night before the SATs during a crazy thunderstorm and there is romance and friendship.  I don’t know the exact release date but it’ll be out sometime this year from Simon Pulse.

2. This Is Our Story by Ashley Elston

23341252

Once again, this was a cover add but it also has an amazing synopsis.  Five boys go hunting and only four return.  The fifth was shot and killed on the trip and none of the boys will admit what happened.  Kate, the main character, takes it upon herself to find out the truth and uncover the mystery of who killed Grant and why.  This one will be out in November from Disney Hyperion.

3. Wild Swans by Jessica Spotswood

Wild Swans

I adored Jessica Spotswood’s debut and while this is a completely different type of story, it sounds really great.  It’s contemporary with a runaway mom coming back into her daughters life and bringing two more daughters with her.  This one will be released in May from Sourcebooks Fire.

4. Going Geek by Charlotte Huang

Going Geek

There isn’t much of a synopsis for this one but I love the cover.  A girl is kicked out of her friend group and she begins to hang out with the “fringe crowd” at school.  Going Geek will be out in September from Random House.

5. Save Me, Kurt Cobain by Jenny Manzer

Save Me Kurt Cobain

This one is a debut and the synopsis is a bit confusing but it intrigued me.  I won’t even try to explain it.  Just check it out on Goodreads.  This one will be released in March from Random House.

6. Future Shock by Elizabeth Briggs

Future Shock

Time travel.  What more do I have to say?  This one will be released in April from Albert Whitman & Company.

7. Girl Last Seen by Heather Anastasiu/Anne Greenwood Brown

Girl Last Seen

A famous girl goes missing and her former best friend is the prime suspect?  I’m all over that.  Girl Last Seen will be released in March from Albert Whitman & Company.

8. Hurricane Kiss by Deborah Blumenthal

Hurricane Kiss

Everything about this book (except maybe the cover) appeals to me.  A hurricane is coming and two neighboring families evacuate together.  One of those people just happens to be the former quarterback who went to juvie and came back a changed person.  I’m assuming there is going to be romance with this bad boy neighbor.  Hurricane Kiss will be released in May from Albert Whitman & Company.

9. On The Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis

On The Edge of Gone

I’m not a huge science fiction fan but this one sounds interesting, especially since the main character is autistic.  This one will be out in March from Amulet Books.

10. Some of the Parts by Hannah Barnaby

Some of the Parts

I admit that I just added this one because I was adding almost all of Random House’s upcoming releases to my TBR but after reading the synopsis, I really do think I’ll like it.  A girl’s brother dies and months later she finds out he was an organ donor and wants to track down the people his organs went to.  It will be out in February from Random House.

I know I totally have a problem when it comes to adding books to my TBR but don’t they all look amazing?  Are any of these on your TBR?

Top Ten Books I Meant To Read in 2015

top ten tuesday 4

I was really bad about sticking to my TBR for 2015 and I missed out on a bunch of books that I had planned on checking out.  Here are 10 that I didn’t make it to that I hope to get around to this year.

1. For The Record by Charlotte Huang

for the record

I’ve had this book on my wish-list for a couple years and I planned on buying it and reading it as soon as it hit shelves but that did not happen for some reason.  I still don’t have a copy but I hope to get it sometime this year.

2. The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch by Daniel Kraus

the death and life

I actually had this one on two TBRs last year, November and December.  I was certain I would get to it one of those months but clearly I was a little too ambitious.  Now I’m just hoping to get to it soon since it looks so awesome.

3. Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl

black widow

I waited in a crazy line at BEA to pick this one up because I’m such a huge Marvel fan.  However, when I got back from BEA I tried to be a good blogger and read books that were already on my TBR and this one just got pushed aside.

4. This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee

this monstrous

This book got some rave reviews from some blogger friends of mine so I had to add it to my TBR.  I also happen to love the cover so that didn’t hurt my chances of picking this one up.  Too bad I fail at things and didn’t actually read it.

5. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West

the fill in boyfriend

I’m a little ashamed to admit that I haven’t read this one.  I try to read a Kasie West book every year because they are just so perfect.   I guess that just means that I’ll have to read more than one Kasie West book this year.

6. Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

crimson bound

I absolutely adored Rosamund Hodge’s debut, Cruel Beauty, so when I saw she was writing another retelling, I immediately added it to my TBR.  I got an ARC and everything and yet I still didn’t read it.  I need to get my priorities straight.

7. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdiehthe wrath

I picked up an ARC of this at ALAMW last year because I was that excited for it.  I’d heard some good things about it and it just sounded so unique that I wanted to check it out.  Here we are a year later and I have not read it because I suck.

8. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

the girl on the train

I was hoping to read more adult books last year and this was at the top of that list.  Everyone was talking about this book and I even managed to find a hardcover copy of it at the thrift store.  It seemed like it was meant to be but now it’s just another unread book on my shelf.

9. I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

Red, vintage, neon motel sign on blue sky; Shutterstock ID 95002717
I’ve read and loved all of Heather Demetrios’ books and I was excited to get this one.  I preordered it and everything but it just got put off for review books.  That is not going to happen this year, that’s for sure.

10. The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand

the last time we say goodbye

I was really excited to see that Cynthia Hand had a new novel coming out.  I adored her Unearthly series and since I’m such a contemporary junkie, I was eager to check this one out.  I definitely need to pick it up this year or I’m going to end up hating myself next year.

What are some 2015 releases that you were hoping to read but missed out on for some reason or another?

Top Ten Books I Want To Read and Don’t Own!

Untitled design (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. For more information and a list of past and future topics, go here.

This is a really hard topic for me.  I have this tendency to buy every book I ever plan on reading.  That means most of the ones I want to read that I don’t own either aren’t out yet or are too expensive.  I did manage to find ten though!

TTT Aug 26

1. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (Fairyland #1) by Catherynne M. Valente – I had the chance to get a copy of this one year at ALA but it didn’t really appeal to me at the time.  Then all my blogger friends started raving about it and now I’m sad I don’t have a copy.

2. Boneseeker by Brynn Chapman – I saw the cover for this one a few months ago and have wanted to read it ever since.  Sadly I haven’t been able to find a copy at my local bookstore and I’m not big on ordering online so I haven’t got a copy yet.

3. Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen – Okay, who wouldn’t want to own this book?  Captain Hook and a gorgeous cover?  I need a copy on my shelf.  Sadly I just haven’t had a ton of extra money for books lately so I haven’t picked it up.

4. The Glass Sentence (The Mapmakers Trilogy #1) by S.E. Grove – This is another one I want to own for the cover.  It also sounds awesome.  I love anything to do with maps so this one really intrigues me.

5. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover – With my current obsession being new adult books, of course I want this one.  Once again, this is a case of not enough money for all the books.

6. One Tiny Lie (Ten Tiny Breaths #2) by K.A. Tucker – I like to read series books consecutively but I don’t often have time to read that many books at once, especially if they aren’t review books.  I got the first book in this series for review but didn’t read it until recently.  Now I just need to pick up the rest of the series when I have time.

7. Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons #1) by Christina Lauren – This is totally a guilty pleasure book for me but I haven’t had the money to buy it or the time to read it lately.

8. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – I’m attempting to expand my reading horizons and this is one book that I’ve heard great things about that’s not a genre I typically read.  As soon as I have a little extra cash, I plan on picking this one up.

9. Night Film by Marisha Pessl – Once again, not a genre I typically read.  Also, it’s an adult novel so it costs more.  I tend to wait for the paperback version.

10. Written in my Own Heart’s Blood (Outlander #8) by Diana Gabaldon – So I’m only on book 3 right now but I really would like to have all the books in this series, especially since I”m kind of powering through them right now.  Too bad it’s so expensive!

What are some books you want to read but don’t yet own?  Feel free to leave links to your Top Ten Tuesday posts!

Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want To Read!

Untitled design (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. For more information and a list of past and future topics, go here.

I have this tendency to buy books or request books that I think I want to read only to find out that maybe I’m not so sure anymore. Sometimes the hype gets to me, sometimes the negative reviews do, sometimes my tastes just change. Here are the top ten books sitting on my shelves that I really can’t decide whether or not I want to read them.

TTT

1. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green – Please don’t shoot me. I know I should have already read this but the hype really got to me. I will, however, have to read it soon since it’s required for my YA Lit class this semester.

2. Unravel Me & Ignite Me (Shatter Me #2 & #3) by Tahereh Mafi – I read Shatter Me back before it ever came out but I still have not read the second or third book.  I was not a fan of Warner in the first book and I hate love triangles so I’m really scared to find out where Tahereh Mafi takes things in these books.

3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – I have the first three books in this series on my shelf but I’m terrified to pick them up.  First off because they have become so popular, I don’t want to end up hating them.  Secondly because the series  isn’t even close to being finished and I don’t want to become addicted and have to wait for the next couple books!

4. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell – This is definitely a case of an overhyped book.  I read and loved Fangirl but I’m just not sure about Eleanor and Park.  I think I’ll like it but I’m afraid I won’t.

5. Legend by Marie Lu – I was obsessed with the dystopian trend for a while but after having a few bad experiences I decided to put off reading any more dystopian books for a while.  Legend was one of those books that got pushed aside and now I just don’t know if I want to check it out.

6. Breakable by Tammara Webber – I loved Easy but the reviews I’ve read for Breakable have not been that great.  I’m kind of thinking about just leaving things where they left off with Easy.

7. The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – I’ve seen some really mixed reviews for this book and while the story appeals to me, these reviews are from some trusted blogger friends of mine.  I’ve just decided to put this one off for now.

8. This Star Won’t Go Out: The Life and Words of Esther Grace Earl – I read the introduction to this while I was at the store and pretty much started crying.  I know that I need to be in the right mood to read this one and I just haven’t been in that mood yet.

9. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children & Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #1 & 2) by Ransom Riggs – This book has been pushed on me by so many people and yet I still haven’t read it.  One, I think it will creep me out.  Two, it’s just one of those books I’m afraid of not liking.

10. The Here and Now by Ann Brashares – I adored Ann Brashares’ Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series and I’m afraid I won’t like The Here and Now since it’s such a branch out for Ann Brashares.

What are some books on your shelves that you aren’t sure you want to read?

Top Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From!

Untitled design (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. For more information and a list of past and future topics, go here.

Alyson Noel

I started off reading Alyson Noel’s contemporary novels and quickly branched out to her paranormal novels.  At the current moment I have 15 of her books on my shelves!

Kate Brian

I have read Kate Brian’s books since I discovered them in high school and I’m currently trying to collect as many of them as I can.  I need to complete both my Private and Privilege series’ but as of right now I own 21 of her books.

Meg Cabot

It’s not even funny how many Meg Cabot books I have.  42, to be exact.  That’s normal, right?

Sarah Dessen

If it comes as a surprise to anyone that I have Sarah Dessen on this list, you clearly don’t know me very well.  I own all 11 of Sarah Dessen’s books.

JK Rowling

So I don’t own a ton of J.K. Rowling books but I own multiples of all the ones I do own so I figured that earned her a place on this list.  With all the copies of her books that I have, I own 18 books by J.K. Rowling.

Richelle Mead

I own 12 books by Richelle Mead at the moment and I plan to continue buying everything she comes out with in the future.  I not only enjoy her YA books but also her adult stuff.

Rachel CaineI own 11 books by Rachel Caine and I have never read a one of them.  I have this tendency to buy series books even if I haven’t started the series and that was definitely the case with the Morganville Vampire books.

Scott Westerfeld

I current own 8 books by Scott Westerfeld but I owned a lot more in the past.  I have loved everything I’ve read by Scott Westerfeld and he’s definitely an author on my auto-buy list.

Michael Grant

I own 11 books by Michael Grant and really should read more of them.

Melissa Marr

I own 13 books by Melissa Marr and I plan on owning even more in the future.  I adore Melissa Marr.

What authors do you own the most books from?

Top Ten Favorite TV Shows!

Untitled design (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. For more information and a list of past and future topics, go here.I’m a TV addict.  These are ten of my favorite shows, in no particular order.

 

TV

1. The Vampire Diaries – This show has kind of gone downhill lately but that season finale definitely made up for it.  I’m currently rewatching seasons 1-5 of this series and I still love it.  Also, I will always be Team Damon.

2. Supernatural – The first two seasons of this show got me hooked.  They were, by far, the best seasons.  The rest of the seasons are good but not nearly as great.  I think that’s why I haven’t actually watched the current season of the show.  However, I do love Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.

3. Teen Wolf – I only discovered this show recently but I definitely binge watched it and loved it.  It’s a lot scarier than I expected and also a lot funnier.  I completely adore Stiles and my new life goal is to meet Dylan O’Brien.  It will happen.

4. Awkward. – My brother actually introduced me to this show and while he no longer watches it, I can’t quite give it up.  The most recent season sucked but in the past it’s always been a really funny show about a very awkward girl that I could totally relate to.

5. Arrow – This is another one that I only recently discovered and binge watched.  Holy crap is this show awesome.  The most recent season was action-packed and completely amazing.  And don’t even get me started on that season finale.  I’m totally behind Olicity.

6. True Blood – It’s the final season of True Blood and while I’m sad to say goodbye to some of my favorite characters, I think it’s time.  This is another show that started strong and went downhill but I am looking forward to the last season.

7. Game of Thrones – Who doesn’t love Game of Thrones these days?  I love the blood and gore and sex and betrayal and just all around epicness that is this show. Also, dragons.

8. 2 Broke Girls – This is my go-to show when I want something laugh out loud funny.  It’s super raunchy and inappropriate but I love it.  I just adore Kat Dennings.

9. Revenge – I’m happy to say that this show is getting good again.  For a while it seemed to be totally off track but it’s finally getting back to the revenge plot that I love.  Revenge is seriously full of twists and turns that I never see coming.  It keeps me on the edge of my seat.

10. The Big Bang Theory – This is another one that I love watching when I want something light and funny.  It’s impossible not to enjoy this show.

What are some of your favorite TV shows? Feel free to leave links in the comments.
