The Vampire Diaries: your ship sank or didn’t happen

10576365

In the true spirit of The Vampire Diaries I have picked a novel where I waffled between a pair of brothers. I was never all that enamoured with Liam, his brother, however, was all sorts of interesting. Cole, a red, was just as dangerous and morally ambiguous as Ruby and as such I found myself regrettably bored with Liam and completely charmed with Cole. Even knowing that Ruby and Cole would never engage in a romantic relationship I still thought they were a better match.

Friends: best cast of characters/friendships

9780545424929_p0_v1_s260x420

Blue and her boys were the best part of this series. Despite the fairly strange and slow moving plot the characters and their dynamics were captivating. There was nothing more enjoyable than watching the blossoming relationships between these characters.

Grey’s Anatomy: all the feels

12000020

If you have not read this sweet little bit of fiction you are missing out. I originally read this novel a few years back and was unprepared by how easily I fell in love with Aristotle and Dante. The happy ending did nothing to prevent my tears. I would be in awe of anyone who could read this novel and remain unmoved.

How I Met Your Mother: bad ending

24706405

I have to admit to not being all that fond of the first book. The crude, primitive culture which they found themselves entrenched in did not appeal to me. The second book was a lot of fun though and I quickly became enamoured with Laurent and Damen. However, I was disappointed by the anticlimactic ending which tied up all the political manoeuvrings of three books in what seemed like a single chapter.

The OC: series that should have ended earlier

256683

I never actually finished this series and as such am unaware if Cassandra Clare was able to pull these novels out of the rut I left them in when I stopped reading them. However, I was impressed with the first three novels and thought the banter between characters redeemed a lot of the aimless and unnecessary plot lines.

One Tree Hill: favourite book boyfriend

8709527

Not going to lie Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series are a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. And it’s no wonder with characters like Adrian causing our heroines emotional distress. Adrian is as loving as he is unstable and well I love a man with a sordid past. Nonetheless, Adrian is loving and committed and the illicit nature of their romance did make me swoon a little.

Breaking Bad: favourite villain

29044

In keeping with the downfall of a hero present in Breaking Bad I have chosen a novel in which the protagonist and his surrounding friends are the villains of their own story. The slow progression of Richard’s commitment to the murder of a fellow student is at once chilling and alarming. Alarming in that the murder doesn’t seem so awful upon its completion, largely due to our connection to Richard.

Modern Family: best family or parents

20820994

Maybe not the “best” family but certainly the most realistic and interesting. The family dynamics and the subsequent betrayals and lies which fractured it were an important facet of this story.

  1. Whilst I loved Ruby and Liam, I really enjoyed the dynamic between Cole and Ruby and I wouldn’t have minded if it went that way. I’m just so glad there wasn’t a love triangle 😂 And yes at Blue and the Raven Boys! They’re one of my favourite friendships ever.
