50/50 Friday (10): Favorite/Least Favorite Main Character


50/50 Friday is a meme hosted by Carrie @The Butterfly Reads and I and focuses on the opposite sides of books (best/worst, differing opinions, etc).  Every week will have a new topic and several advance topics will be listed in the tab labeled 50/50 Friday!

Today's Topic: Favorite/Least Favorite Main Character

Favorite


Adelina is definitely one of my favorite main characters!  One of the reasons I picked her over my other favorites is because she's just so different from the rest.  She has such a dark energy and mind and is one of the most well rounded characters I have ever read.  I've never read about such a dark main character who isn't immediately likable but the author does such a great job making her current thoughts consistent with her past and her abilities.












Least Favorite


I really just didn't like Eadlyn.  While I understand that she was raised a very sheltered life, America and Maxon did not instill any humility in her.  While I didn't really like her as a character, the book itself (the plot, the setting, and all the rest) was pretty good.  It was just so hard to push through because of Eadlyn's attitude.














What do you think of these characters?  Who are your favorite and least favorite main characters?  Make a post and link it below!

The lovely and amazing Zizzy and Lisa @ The Owlery are hosting YA awards this year!

You may ask,  what are these YA awards?  Well, I'm sure you've all heard of the Goodreads Awards (whose winner were just announced, btw) and this is pretty similar.  You can nominate your favorite books of the year and the judges will read and judge the top three books in each category and then, in a live show (on YouTube), the winners will be announced!


To vote for your favorite books, all you have to do is go to this form and fill in your votes!

Voting ends on December 31st.
Only nominate books that have been published between January 1st and December 31st of 2016!

There are 8 total sections with four judges for each section:
Science Fiction/Dystopia
Contemporary/Romance
Thriller/Mystery
LGBTQIA+
Debut
Retellings
Fantasy
Graphic Novel



So after all of the voting takes place, the top 3 books will be announced on The Owlery's channel!

This video explains all of the dates!

There will be a live show after voting is over to showcase all of the books that won!


To make this even better, there are giveaways!  There are 10 in total, one for each section (fantasy, retelling, etc = 8, and two for any book that won) and you can enter to win the book that wins in the polls and judging!  To enter, visit this page.

Music Monday (4)

Music Monday is a weekly event hosted by Lauren over at Always Me.  Every Monday, you share one or two of your favorite songs you've been enjoying that week to help other people discover new music!  Here are my picks for this week:

Heathens - Twenty One Pilots
I haven't had a chance to seen this movie yet but I love the sound track!  I really love the gritty vibe of this song and it makes you feel all badass.


Wiser - Madilyn Bailey
I love the message of this video (that you're stronger when you've gone through tough times) and all of the featured YouTubers make this video so cool!


What have you been listening to recently?

November Wrap-Up


It's time for my November wrap-up!  November just flew by, honestly.  So much happened this month and unfortunately, not much of that stuff was NaNoWriMo or blogging or reading.  I did get more reviews written and books read than October though so that's something!
