Top 10 Tuesday: Favorite Couples!

Here we are, Monday Part 2, we have arrived...but hey, at least it ain't Monday Part 1! So I actually don't think I've ever participated in the Top 10 Tuesday meme before today. For some reason this one stresses me out a little. I get kind of stuck in a loop with my suggestions for things and I always felt a little intimidated by having to come up with ten items for this meme. However today I thought, why not - lets give it a shot!

Top 10 Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Artsy Reader and much like the other fun list memes, there are ever changing topics that explore different book related content! This weeks topic is "favorite couples". A bit about me first: I don't read a lot of straight romance. Most of the romance-esc books I read are from a few years ago and I've really shifted my reading in the past year. So I'm going to shake things up and not just going to do favorite romantic couples, but my top ten favorite coupling of characters (including friendship), so off we go!

Top 5 Tuesday: Books That Should Be Movies!

It's Tuesday, which means only one good thing: it isn't Monday! It also means it's time for another round of Top 5 Tuesday. T5T is a weekly meme hosted by Bionic Book Worm where different topics are explored. This weeks topic is "books that need to be made into movies"! If you haven't checked out her weekly prompts you definitely should - they're super fun!

So I wouldn't call myself particularly into movies and TV. However, I am also not someone who says I don't like them either. I'm just a fan of good stories and well made entertainment. Whether that be in my favorite form (books) or in movies or TV, I'm not a stickler about it. What I am a stickler about is book to film adaptations. Most of the time, they're simply just not as good. You can't get the range of detail and finesse into a movie that you can into a book. HOWEVER, there's also something so magical about seeing something you've loved in a book come to life on the screen. *Obviously, it can also be terrible if it's done horribly (looking @ u, directors of My Sisters Keeper) and they miss the whole point of the book. But when it's done well (GoT 5Ever) it's a real thrill to relive a story through the screen. So without further ado, here are the books I think should be made into movies!
