Ten Fictional Settings I’d Love To Visit {Top Ten Tuesday}

171205 Fictional Settings I'd Love To Visit

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

One of the (many) joys of reading is being able to discover so many beautiful new places, without even having to set a foot outside the door. However, sometimes the places just sound so absolutely wonderful that we wish they could be real so we could visit them (maybe even live there) for real. For me, that’s totally the case for the following ten settings from books, movies, or tv:

Top Ten Fictional Character Crushes {Top Ten Tuesday}

170228 TTT Fictional Crushes

Hosted by The Broke & The Bookish

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s a freebie, so I thought I’d take this time to talk about some of my all-time favorite fictional character crushes!

One of the most important things for me when reading a book or hearing a story are the characters. I crush on fictional characters all the time. In fact, if I don’t fall in love with any of the characters, chances are I don’t like the book as much, no matter the writing or plot. I NEED to feel things for the characters. I NEED to fall in love with them for some reason. I NEED to be thinking about certain characters long after finishing the book or turning off the tv.

So, while this list is soo much longer than ten (but hey, we’ve got to start somewhere), I give you a list of the first ten characters that came to mind when I thought about fictional crushes. This list will contain characters from books as well as from TV or movies. And, to limit myself a bit more, I chose only one character per series, though this was quite hard in some cases as well.

So without further ado, let’s get started!

Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday. Today is all about the visuals, because even if we are super imaginative and can perfectly envision everything we read (eh, not always), it’s always nice to just look at beautiful art.

So I would like to talk about a few of my favorite fan artists today. These are artists who are just like us, as in they love to obsess over books. Except, they also have the amazing talent to draw the characters and scenes so beautifully.

Of course, all art belongs to the artists! If you click on the name you will go to their DeviantArt or Tumblr sites where you can see all their art. Be sure to always credit them!
