10 MOST MEMORABLE BY JULES BOOKSHELF [BOOKISH EDITION]


TEN MOST MEMORABLE BOOKS I'VE READ, THIS 2014



Hello guys!


I hope that y'all having a good day!


So I know that I haven't been around lately, and I am so so very sorry. I am still not blogging regularly due to personal reason huhu. But I promise that I will be back as soon as I resolve this problem of mine. Tho I am still reviewing from time to time on goodreads, but I decided that as a year ender I should continue on with my top 10 list of 2014. Tho I won't just talk about books in general but also about characters, moments and other things related to books. :D

Okay then, lets start! :D



1. The book that made me yell at a person -
The Fault in our Stars by John Green

I know that yelling at a person is mean and that I shouldn't do it, but this guy is just wrong and mean for telling me the obvious event that I will endure. Yes, I'm sure its pretty cliche and obvious to say that I cried over this book. Like really ugly crying but I hate it when people spoil me, like: "I DON'T NEED YOU TO TELL ME ANYTHING, I AM READING IT!" and this guy, just yelled the ending for me (Its petty yes, but I was in the moment, I was too caught up with the feels to care)



2. This book was disturbing for me-
Song of the Fireflies by J.A Redmerski

I swear Ms. JA, I love you. I love you to bitz for giving me Andrew at The Edge of Never. But this one was just not for me.

I felt... scarred? hahaha reading it because I just could not comprehend what happened in the book. It was too... scary to even imagine or visualize. Its not horror. its just... too real and intense for me back then. Even thinking about it now, give me the chills because. This book was just too much for me then, even now.


3. A book that has character(s) that made me growl with irritation-
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

I swear, this was just so annoying. I have never encountered a character that made me want to bang my head on a concrete wall. I could not believe myself for how much I hate Travis Maddox so much.














4. That one guy with the sexiest name -
The Swan and the Jackal by J.A Redmerski

I mean seriously?!

Fredrik Gustavsson.

I can imagine that in any accent and it would still sound sexy haha 



5. Book(s) that you should try. 
 Every Ugly Word by Aimee L. Salter & My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi

These books were an eyeopener for me.   Every Ugly Word was awesome because it talks about bullying which is something that happened to me, and I think everyone could relate to in some way. While My Life After Now gave a new light on what people think as a disgusting disease (AIDS/HIV). I love it because it gave me a new perspective and these books talk about sensitive topics and the authors wrote them in such a great way. It really helped me understand the situation of the people who are suffering from these events, and I think I now understand them better. And I know that if others were to read this they would be affected as well.



6. A book with my OTP - Rose Calloway and Connor Cobalt
Kiss the Sky by Krista and Becca Ritchie

Can I just say how much I love this couple. Everything about them is something that I want to have in my life haha.

I love the fact that they see each other as their perfect other half. Rose was so awesome with her relationship with Connor, she wasn't like the clingy girls I usually read in novels, but at the same time, she was able to make Connor feel and understand just how much she cares for him. And Connor, ohmyghad. He is my dream, if I had a daughter in the future, I will make her find her own Connor. Someone who understands her and wishes for her to be herself and not try so hard to be with him. Connor is like that, he loved Rose for who she is, he never wished for her to be anything but. I love him because he was ready to give everything up just for Rose, and I wish I could find my own Connor Cobalt. (But while there won't be any candidates I'm happy being Connor's twitter slave hahaha)

7. Most Bad-Ass Heroine(s)  -
Rose Calloway VS Izabel Seyfried (from Kiss the Sky and Reviving Izabel)

I know that I have to choose between these two but its hard. They are both very fierce and very very strong willed women. Izabel is the kind of woman that would kill you with a flick of her hand (well she is skilled with her knife of hers) then there's Rose who will always wield her high heels getting ready to poke at your eyes. I am having a really really hard time choosing and honestly, I think that they both deserve this title because they are both fierce, they are very protective of family and loved ones. They are both very beautiful women (I have big girl crushes on them ) and they are both determined to achieve or get what they want.



8. Best Non-Protagonist Character -
Daniel from Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

Technically Daniel isn't really not just a non-protagonist since he already has his own novel hahaha, but I loved him while I was reading Hopeless and Losing Hope. He was funny and the bromance between him and Dean was so so so cute. I loved him and well when I read his own story, I loved him even more and he is just so adorable and funny and cute and charming. *le sigh*

9. Book Boyfriend of the Year - Connor Cobalt

Kiss the Sky by Krista and Becca Ritchie

OHMYGHAD. I NEED TO PUT UP A LIST FOR THIS ONE.

  1. He is so smart, I am attracted so much to how smart he is.
  2. He has a unique kind of sense of humor. He is also very amusing when he's sarcastic.
  3. He is a beautiful man. (I am not joking)
  4. He has a cat, that in itself is major hot points (any guy with a pet adds hot points haha)
  5. He also has a bromance. 
  6. He loved Rose for who she is. 
  7. I could imagine how he hugs (eeeeeh hahaha)
  8. He knows what he wants and he isn't the kind of guy to confuse a girl
  9. He's fiercely protective
  10. He's a kind of arrogant that is righteous because he doesn't brag about himself.
 10. BEST BOOK OF 2014 
KISS THE SKY BY KRISTA AND BECCA RITCHIE




I guess you could all see it coming, because I am head over heels in love with this book. It has great characters, it had
comedy, feels, romance, meaning and story.

You can't help but get sucked in with the story because it was so good and you just can't help it. But most importantly the characters.

I love the characters of this book. I love Connor and Rose but I love Lily, Loren, Ryke and Daisy as well. This book/series made me wish that they were real and that I was able to be friends with them.

I love this book/series.

Its my life, basically.


So yeah, that is my top ten most memorable this year! I hope that you enjoyed it like I did when I was making it. Happy New Years and to more great books on 2015! :D


How about you? What's your book of the year? How about your book boyfriend? :)

  3. Okay, now I get it why you've been obsessing over Kristie & Becca Ritchie's books. HAHA!

    Hmm, I think my book of the year would be Allegiant because what Roth did was just mean. Very mean. But I forgive her because my 2014 book boyfriend is Tobias Eaton, my love.

    P.S. I'm still waiting for a chance to have an autographed copy of Four with the actor's lip mark. Lol
