Top 5 Wednesday: I Want YOU to be in My Family

top 5 wednesday banner

This Top 5 Wednesday I am going to be talking about the characters from books that I would love to have as family. Let’s get started!

1. Hermione 
from Harry Potter
I always wanted an older sister that I could learn from, admire, and steal clothes from, and I feel like Hermione would be perfect. She’s so knowledgable but also has an emotional range larger than a teaspoon, so she could be there for me to help with books and studying as well as teaching me about love and life.

2. Sherlock Holmes
I’d love to have Holmes as an uncle. I think Holmes deductive reasoning skills are just astounding and I feel like he would be a kick at family reunions.

3. Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye
As much as I didn’t like Holden when I first read this book in high school, I did recognize how much he loved Phoebe. I think that relationship is one of my favorites, therefore I’d love to experience what that kind of brother-sister relationship is like (not that I don’t love my real brother dearly!).

4. Dumbledore from Harry Potter
He’s wise, he’s intelligent, and he’s got a great beard! I’d love to have Dumbledore as my grandfather so I could hear his stories and learn from everything he’s accomplished.

5. Bilbo Baggins
 from The Hobbit
I would love to have Bilbo as my uncle. With all his adventures and great outlook on life, he’s be great to have as a distant role model.

Who would you want to have as your family? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy reading,

Top 10 Tuesday: TV Shows

top ten tuesday banner
Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010. It combines what I love most in this world into one—lists, books, and blogging. It couldn’t be any better suited for me! This week I am actually straying away from books and talking about my top 10 favorite TV shows. To be honest with you guys, I don’t watch a lot of live TV since I don’t really have the time, but I love watching TV shows on Netflix while I’m at the gym or if I’m having a lazy Saturday night in. Let’s get started!

Grey's Anatomy.gif
1. Grey’s Anatomy
Unfortunately, I haven’t been watching this live (and I haven’t caught up on Netflix), but I’m definitely prepared to be watching it during my fall and winter breaks this semester.

2. Greek
I’m a sucker for teen dramas and Scott Michael Foster. This old TV show basically follows the drama of sororities and fraternities and how they can influence student life.

3. One Tree Hill
My biggest guilty pleasure. I am currently re-watching this for the third time. Nathan Scott is everything I want in a husband and more.

4. Once Upon a Time
I love how this show retells the story of fairy tales in such an interesting manner. I haven’t watched the most recent season.

5. The Office
Fun fact: I used to despise The Office — then I gave it a second chance and fell in love with Jim Halpert.

6. Friends
If you want to know anything about my personality, here you go. I really want to be a Chandler, but I am painfully a Monica.

7. How I Met Your Mother
I’m also a sucker for popular, quippy TV shows like this and Friends and Big Bang Theory. They pass the time and make me chuckle. Also, my best friend is Ted.

8. Supernatural
This is such a random show to be on my favorite, but I am absolutely in love with Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Their chemistry on the show and the evolving demon plot (I haven’t watched past season 9) always kept me interested.

Gilmore Girls.gif
9. Gilmore Girls
I used to make fun of my old roommate because she would get really into the theme song — and then it happened to me. Also, Rory should have ended up with Jess. That’s all.

10. Criminal Minds
I can’t watch too much of this at one time because I end up freaking myself out, but I love the interesting cases they get called to and seeing how they use reasoning and studying people to figure out who the criminal is.

What are your favorite TV shows? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy reading (watching),

Treasure Tuesday

1. I am currently listening to the audiobook version of “Illuminae,” and so far I am loving it so much more than the actual book.

2. Find out what new book you should read this fall with this Buzzfeed quiz. I got “The Underground Railroad” by Colson Whitehead.

4. This is my second week of classes, and I’m already swamped with homework, extra-curriculars, and internship stuff. How is school going for you?
