Favourite K-Pop Groups

Favourite K-Pop Groups

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie week and since I wasn’t feeling searching down the past TTT’S that I decided to do something that I’m into that isn’t book related. So, I decided to do K-Pop. If you follow me on Twitter, I talk about it more there and I’m actually more active on there. So I’ve decided to make a list of my top ten K-Pop groups.

1- ASTRO

No words can describe how much love I have for Astro. I found them during a time in my life where I was very down and upset with my life at the time. And their bright and cute songs really change my mood from a 0 to 100 very quickly. Their first few mini-albums were based on a season’s concepts which are truly brilliant and so fun to listen to. Their sound is slowly maturing but they keep a fresh look and sound which is kind of signature to them. But, honestly, my all-time favourite K-Pop group. I don’t want to get too much into it because I will go for a long time.

BTS are on a roll right now. I think it’s impossible to go anywhere online and NOT see them. They’re very much the face of K-Pop at the moment so I probably don’t even need to tell you listen to their music, you’ve probably already have. I’m literally counting the days until October, I can’t wait to see them live and in person.

Book Series I Don’t Plan to Finish

Book Series I Don’t Plan to Finish
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature once hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! Each week, a new topic is put into place and bloggers share their top ten (or your own amount) accordingly.

I have a habit of starting book series and never finishing them. Sometimes I just forget to continue the series (this happens a lot, especially if I didn’t enjoy the first) but I do try and continue onto the second book which is really where the make or break moment happens for me. But I think these are five series I definitely don’t plan to continue.

1. The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare

I’ve only really read The Mortal Instruments series of this collection. But I really have no intention to continuing onto the other stories and series within this world. I hear her newer pieces are much better and more thrilling but, sadly, I don’t have any interest in the Shadowhunter series anymore.

2. The Selection by Kiera Cass

This series is truly the ‘we could’ve had it all’ series for me. I stopped after the third book and I chose not to continue into the series where it follows the main lead’s daughter. But I was so disappointed by this series. There was so much hidden potential that was just wasted and I think I’ll always be disappointed by this in the end.

3. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Actually, this series is a maybe I’ll pick it up or maybe I won’t. Very much depends on if have the time. Cinder was an alright read for me and this series is so loved which makes me want to finish it but I just don’t have the energy and time for it at the moment.

4. The Folk of the Air by Holly Black

The lack of feeling I had for Cruel Prince was disappointing. I’m in search of a fairy series but I was disappointed by how uninteresting this was. I usually hold on until book two but here I didn’t even to 50% before deciding the series wasn’t for me.

5. The Nightside Saga by Tristina Wright

I think in the review of 27 Hours I was going to read the second but my interest in this is gone after hearing about Tristina. All interest is gone.

There’s probably loads more to this list that I can think of (like the Hunter series, Kricket series or The Queen of the Tearling) But I’m very strapped for time at the moment so couldn’t spend more time on this post.

My frequently used word is “and bone”. There’s probably way more to add to this list but since I’m rushing this week’s post, I’ve stopped at six because these were the first ones that came to mind. University assignments are due so soon so I’ll be pretty infrequent in the upcoming weeks.

Books Set In Another Country

I actually have a lot of books on my TBR that is set in other countries, but I haven’t got round to actually reading them yet, so this list was shortened to just five books that I have! A majority of these books aren’t 100% set in the country, I think in most of them, they often travel to that country or a major part of the novel is set in that country.
