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

8643ac25f8e860ab1e331c3cfebda6bd

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)

kingsman-secret-service-trailer-breakdown-11

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)

b23_03608_r_post

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

20161207_143932

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 | Favorite Non-Canon Ships (Oct 19th ’16)

Heya, guys~ 🙂 It is once again time for Top 5 Wednesday.

Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group in Goodreads, created by Lainey, and currently moderated by Sam. This week’s topic is Favourite Non-Canon Ships.

These are the couples you love, but they never got together in canon (canon meaning: what actually happened in the text). Or that did get together, but weren’t together in the end of the series. Or a couple you ship but it’s actually impossible for them to be together because they are from different worlds, franchises, etc. Let your shipper heart run wild. I know mine will. 

Now, let us get started~

Top 5 Wednesday | Gateway Books to Your Favorite Genre (Sept. 28 ’16)

Yes, yes, I’m late and I posted two (including this post) T5W posts today.

Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group in Goodreads, created by Lainey, and now moderated by Sam. This one was this Wednesday’s (two days ago) topic, which is Gateway Books to Your Favorite Genre. Since I have quite a number of favorite genre, I’ll just list out one or two for each genre.

So, let us begin…

The OTP Book Tag

Wow. Okay. So, I started this after I saw Thoughts on Tomes on YT video back in February, but then, I left this sitting in my draft for weeks. I’ve been, well, not really busy, but I was kind of “disinterested” in doing things for a while.

Anyways…the questions.

  1. AN A UNPOPULAR OTP THAT YOU SHIP

uZ8PPDp

Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood

Okay, so maybe they’ve never really been in a relationship, considering in the wikia Neville was classified as “a close friend” and she married someone else later in her life, but still… I really love this pairing.

2. AN OTP THAT YOU DIDN’T SHIP BUT NOW YOU DO

Cassandra-Jean-s-Tarot-Cards-Simon-Isabelle-Ace-of-Blades-mortal-instruments-34157660-436-750
Simon Lewis and Isabelle Lightwood

It’s not that I didn’t like that, but I’m not that crazy about them. Although all of that changed after I read Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, a collection of novellas about Simon when he was training to be a shadowhunter.

3. YOUR MOST HATED OTP

 714569

Rupert Frayne and Muriel Hardwicke

Ugh, I really hate this pairing. I don’t know how Rupert could fall for Muriel in the first place. Thank goodness he didn’t stay with Muriel in the end. Because seriously, Muriel is vile. She’s an evil witch disguised by a beautiful face. Yes, I hate Muriel. A lot.

4. AN OTP THAT TOOK WAY TOO LONG TO GET TOGETHER

I don’t really think I have one. At first, I thought of Ron and Hermione, but then again, no. I enjoy reading slow burn romance, so I don’t mind if it takes them a long time to get together, as long as they do get together.

5. YOUR FAVOURITE NON-CANON OTP

tumblr_inline_mlslnherxP1qz4rgp

Will, Tessa, and Jem a.k.a HeronGrayStairs

This lovely threesome is my favourite non-canon OTP. But they might as well be CANON because Will loves Jem and Jem loves Will (albeit not romantically), and Tessa loves Will, Will loves Tessa, Tessa loves Jem, and Jem loves Tessa. Everyone loves everyone. So yeah. I love all these pairings, and because I couldn’t choose, I ended up loving them as a threesome. Saves me from the headache of trying to figure out which pair I love more, you know?

6. YOUR FAVOURITE BROTP

Blue Sargent, Noah Czerny, Richard Gansey III, Ronan Lynch and Adam Parrish (art by Azeher)

I seriously love Blue and her raven boys. The interaction between all of them is just so beautiful. I even have a headcanon where Blue and Ronan becomes bff. haha

b668da7cae6bb9b4b6a5af0b4f0bccfe
Clary Fray and Simon Lewis

Yes, I’m cheating, but I can’t help it. I know Clary’s a girl, but THESE TWO IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE BROTP, OKAY?!

7. AN OTP YOU ADORED IN THE BOOKS BUT NOT AS MUCH IN THE MOVIES OR TV ADAPTATION

-Cassandra-Jean-s-Tarot-Cards-Jace-Clary-Eight-of-Steles-mortal-instruments-33962325-436-750
Clary Fray and Jace Herondale

Clace is my second favourite OTP in The Mortal Instruments series, but Clace in the Shadowhunters TV series made me cringe so much.

8. A POPULAR OTP THAT NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY YOU JUST CAN’T SHIP IT

41kQizwuP5L._SY355_

Bella and Edward

Yeah, okay..no. I haven’t really read any of the Twilight books. I kind of gave up halfway through the first book and I’ve only watched the movies. But seriously, I can’t really ship this OTP. I don’t ship Bella and Jake either, but I don’t ship this two. Because, really Edward, watching your love interest sleep without her knowledge is seriously very creepy.

9. YOUR FAVOURITE LGBT+ OTP

Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood a.k.a MALEC ❤ ❤ ❤

Yes, I ship this two so hard! They are not the first LGBTQ+ OTP I ship, but they are my favourite. Seriously, you can ask my sister. I drove her crazy every time I opened my mouth and talked about Malec. 😀

my_favorite_thing_about_you_by_azeher-d99wzdo

Ronan Lynch and Adam Parrish a.k.a Pynch (art by Azeher)

Yes, I’m cheating, but I can’t help it. I love them so much too. They are my second favourite LGBTQ+ OTP. They are not canon YET, but I am hoping that they will be…in the final book of The Raven Cycle. Please please please Maggie, I’m begging you. I know most of the readers who read TRC would want Pynch to be CANON too! >.<

tumblr_nni65tTJI01saa455o1_500

Aristotle Mendoza and Dante Quintana

Yes, I’m still cheating, but I can’t leave them out. This is my third fav LGBTQ+ OTP, and the best thing about them is…THEY ARE CANON! Yush! haha I love them so much, especially Dante. My baby~ >o<

10. YOUR ALL TIME FAVOURITE OTP

tumblr_np3lpyaKXk1t7gg3to6_400

MALEC!!!!!!!!!

Yes, Malec is my all time favourite OTP. Seriously, no one knows how much I love them. Well, except for my sister…and my two friends who I always ranted/fangirl with. Seriously, Malec made me craugh (crying + laughing). Only something I love so so much could do that. Malec made me do nothing but think about them every single moment. Because of Malec, I could only focus on Malec fanfictions. I love Malec so much, I couldn’t think about other OTPs for MONTHS! I just… Malec is my no. 1 love.

So…that is all from me. I’m not going to tag anyone, so feel free to do this tag. Thank you for reading. 🙂

Hiya~ 😀 It’s been awhile. I’ve been busy this whole week, baking and trying to write fanfictions because they’ve started a shadowhuntershipweeks on Tumblr, and it’ll be like a countdown to Lady Midnight’s release next month.

Also, before I forgot… HAPPY VALENTINE’S! haha I’ll live today vicariously through the characters from my fanfictions. Yes, I know, sad sad life.

Yup. While I found my love of reading thick, English novels because of Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix, but me starting to like reading is because of the Nancy Drew books. In primary school, I used to spend a lot of time with my late grandmother, and she would always bring me to the small library in neighbourhood. I would sit on the floor by the bookshelf and read Nancy Drew books for hours 🙂

♥ Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

9780140444308

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. It was so thick and the fonts were so small. It took me months to finish.

Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest sense of accomplishment when you finish it?

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Since it’s February, I chose a book from my February TBR pile.
