Top Ten Tuesday – Favourite book quotes📚

Hello fellow bloggers and bookworms and everyone else inbetween! I am VERY excited for this weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic and omg I’m just so excited haha.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post, born out of the want to bring us bookish people together and great for those of us that love a good list (which I do lmao).

In case you hadn’t gathered from the title this weeks topic set by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl is favourite book quotes.

1 – “Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape, and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people’s business. Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Moony, and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git. Mr. Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a professor. Mr. Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day, and advises him to wash his hair, the slimeball.” Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban.

2 – “We accept the love we think we deserve.” The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

3 – “Fear comes with imagination, it’s a penalty, it’s the price of imagination.” Red Dragon by Thomas Harris.

4 – “So turn off the television—in fact, why don’t you turn off all the lights except for the one over your favorite chair?—and we’ll talk about vampires here in the dim. I think I can make you believe in them, because while I was working on this book, I believed in them myself.” Salem’s Lot by Stephen King.

5 – “I am your number one fan.” Misery by Stephen King.

6 – “The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.” Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.

Eclipse, Stephenie Meyer – A Review.

Hello everyone! I’m back again with a review of the third book in the Twilight Series – Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer.

As always there may be spoilers in my review so please proceed with caution!

I want to start by saying that Eclipse is my least favourite of the 4 books, I’m not saying I hated it but in a ranking it would come at the bottom.

The plot of Eclipse is good, it has so much depth to it and there are plenty going on. Especially in regards to the animosity between the Cullen’s and the wolves. I also really loved how we finally got an insight into the Wolves and their history and legends and also Jasper’s background. I feel these 2 aspects really brought the book to life and filled in a few gaps we had.

I did feel the fight between Victoria and her new borns and the Cullen’s and the wolves was dragged out, and I felt so awkward reading about Edward, Bella and Jacob all in that tent together – it felt so forced, and I get it’s meant to be that way but it was so hard to read!

There are also several situations where Meyer could have really made a clear point on what is right and wrong and she didn’t. Namely Jacob kissing Bella without her consent and then when she tells Charlie his initial reaction is not one of a Father… And I feel that’s what really frustrates me about Eclipse, and is the reason why I don’t enjoy it as much as the others.

That being said, I do enjoy Eclipse, it’s just my least fave of the 4!

Keep your eyes peeled because Breaking Dawn review is coming your way soon too.
