Top 5 Wednesday: Authors You’d Want To Write Like | 29th November ’18

Hi everyone~ I have been such an inconsistent poster when it comes to Top 5 Wednesday. Hopefully, this coming month will be different.

Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group started by GingerreadsLainey, and now moderated by Sam (thoughtsontomes). This week’s topic is ‘Authors You’d Want to Write Like’. If I’ve been asked this question years ago, I would probably have a lot to list out. But now, hopefully, I can think of five.

Top 5 Wednesday | Favorite LGBTQ+ Reads (19th Apr ’17)

Hello everyone~ Wow, the last time I posted for T5W was March :O

For all those new people who doesn’t know what T5W is… T5W is a discussion group on Goodreads, created by Lainey, and now hosted by Sam. Each Wednesday (duh!) we’ll post our top 5 list (sometimes more) based on the given topics.

This week’s topic is Favorite LGBTQ+ Reads. This has got to be one of my favourite topics ever. The topic is kind of self-explanatory, but to make it clearer, for today’s topic, we’ll get to talk about our favorite books that feature LGBTQ+ characters or are by LGBTQ+ authors. Unfortunately, my LGBTQ+ reads are limited to books featuring only GB and Q.

Top 5 Wednesday | Top 5 Fictional Jobs I’d Want to Have (1st March ’17)

Hey there everyone~ So, it’s March! I didn’t realize it was already March. Anyways, I missed last week’s topic, but I can’t miss this one! Because, one, this topic is so good! I really love it.

First of all, the usual spiel. Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group is Goodreads, made by Lainey, and is now moderated by Sam. This week’s topic is Top 5 Fictional Jobs I’d Want to Have. I’m sure I don’t have to explain that one anymore.

Without further ado…


1. High Warlock

I think I would love being a high warlock like Magnus. I like that it makes me feel needed (haha), like when Shadowhunters need someone to open up Portals for them, and being a high warlock will give me the power that normal warlocks don’t have. Unless, you’re someone like Catarina, I guess. But what I love about being a warlock most of all is MAGIC! xD

The only downside is the politics. I really hate politics.

 

 

 

 

2. Magizoologist

rehost_2016_11_14_fd185d6f-90a3-4166-acfc-bf812398dd63I think I would love this job. If the real me pursue this job, I will probably make a mess, or die but I’m ignoring that and just do things I like…so there. I really love the magical creatures in the Harry Potter world, so I know I would really enjoy this job.

Plus, did I mention I love magic? 😀

 

3. Kingsman Field Agent (or Merlin’s position)

Again, I will probably, most definitely, will die if I become a field agent. But I love the adrenaline rush. Or well, I love the second hand adrenaline rush (so just imagine if I could really feel that rush).

But of course, I can’t in real life because I’m too scared, too paranoid, has too much anxieties, too nervous etc. I mean, I’m even scared of heights, so yeah.

4. Q (Quartermaster)

I don’t know why I love jobs that real life me will probably die if I ever get that job. But anyways, yes, I will probably die taking this job because, working at MI6…imagine if it’s under attack? And I will probably crumble too because of all the pressure. But I love this job too, because well, the adrenaline rush, and you know, people need me. Plus, the power (hahaha).

5. Patissiere/ Baker

I love baking, I really do! Having my own bakery is one of my dreams, which is why I would so love it if I get to have Jacob’s job. Or even Lola’s dads’ job (from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins). Even if theirs are limited to pies.


So, those are five of my favourite fictional jobs…or at least the ones that I could think of at the moment. The jobs I listed are in no particular order.

So, is there any jobs here that you fancy too? What are your favourite fictional jobs? I would love to here from all of you 🙂

 

Top 5 Wednesday: Books That Took You the Longest to Finish (Oct 5th ’16)

Hey everyone~ I am happy that for the first time in a long while, my T5W post is right on time.

So, the usual spiel. Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group in Goodreads, which was created by Lainey, and currently run by Sam. This week’s topic is books that took me the longest to finish. Quoting Sam word-to-word, here’s an elaboration for the topic:

These are the books that you had on your nightstand “in progress” for months or years. The books that you took weeks to read because they put you in a slump. Those books that were an uphill battle. These are books you started and actually read, not books you’ve just had on your shelf the longest.

Now, let us get on with it. Continue reading
