Day 4: Your Favourite Characters and Which Books They’re From.

There are a number of these, so let’s get to it!

1. Kenji Kishimoto

I am in love with Kenji from Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me trilogy. He’s that funny, witty character who manages to ease the tension and bring the mood back up when times get rough. Unfortuneately, we learn very little about him throughout the series, especially his background (i.e. what happened to his family, why he’s there, etc.) and I really hope that Tahereh will make a book for him (whether a full novel or a novella, I don’t really care, as long as we can see more about him in ther future).

2. Jem Carstairs

If you were around last year when I did my favourite male character, you would’ve seen this. If you don’t know Jem Carstairs, you can find him in Cassandra Clare’s The Infernal Devices trilogy. Basically, I love him for his supposedly haunting musical talents, his half-Chinese background, and the fact that he’s probably the most forgiving and kind being never to live. He’s a saint, and a great friend to both Will and Tessa, and he gives one heck of a speech. /foreverinlove.

3. Adrian Ivashkov

I’m actually kind of conflicted, putting this on here, because while I usually love Adrian’s wit and sarcasm, in the past few books, I feel like it hasn’t been on par with his character’s usual foolhardiness as it was back in the Vampire Academy series. Maybe it’s ’cause of what’s happening in the Bloodlines series, or maybe I’m the only one who thinks this, but I just don’t love his character enough anymore. That being said, from the past, like, 7 books he’s been in, he’s been one of my favourite characters ever. Hopefully in the next book, he’ll be back to himself.

4. Reid Alexander

If you have yet to meet Reid, you can find him in Tammara Webber’s Between the Lines series. Honestly, his character probably had the most interesting character development ever. Started off as sarcastic superstar Reid Alexander, to just being sarcastic human being Reid Alexander. The change in his character was so smooth – he managed to become a pretty good guy in the end, while still keeping up his wit and charm, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Ah, the only thing I hate is that his story’s done… -rolls-

5. Chloe Saunders

Necromance Chloe is next on my list (which isn’t in any particular order, to be honest). I liked the innocence of her character, how she managed to still maintain it throughout the Darkest Powers trilogy. She became smarter, she became stronger, but her purity and kindness never waned and I loved that about her.

6. Yelena Liana Zaltana

Badass. Nuff said.

Honestly though, her story was insanely interesting and I loved the magic within the Study series. She’s strong willed, strong hearted, and strong, and can really kick ass. She was an entertaining character, as well as a cunning murderess.

7. Celaena Sardothien

Badass. Nuff said.

Well, it’s true. No, I’m not a parrot.

I really like Celaena’s story too. While the Throne of Glass series hasn’t finished yet, this is another series that I’ll remember for a while. Eerily similar to Yelena, this girl is a master assassin, and instead of seeking out her history she often avoids it. her willpower and determinaion is inspiring, and her ability to kill people within a matter of seconds is actually a little freaky… But I’ve got to say, I’m really excited to see where the next book with take us.


I’m sure there are a lot more characters that I love, but these are the first to come to mind. I was actually going to make a list of ten, but I can’t seem to hit it. Oddly, not all the characters in my top ten book list made it to my top eight characters list. That just means these guys really shined through the words. Especially Kenji. He’s not even the MAIN main character, but I love him nonetheless~!

    Hiya @nerdyaddictionshop ! My name is Alicia and I'm from Canada 🍁 First off, I want to say how much I love your shop! I fell in love with your work from your It's the Nerdy Life box and I've been loving your new line of watercolour bookmarks. They're so unique and beautiful 😍 I have a slight obsession with your new designs so I'd love to rep them for you and help you share your beautiful art with the world!
As for posting, now that I'm done with my job and am back in school, I'll be posting everyday! Throughout the fall months I want to go and explore the city I'm now calling home and I would love to take your bookmarks with me (thus the inclusion of the image staring Five Ways to Fall). It would be a weekly endeavour where I'd walk around town and capture something that I love, with a book and your bookmark (or your bookmark alone). Further, I'll be taking photos similar to the others featured here and would be willing to promote only your bookmarks during the time I'm rep. I feel like my feed matches your bookmark aesthetic. I love vibrant colours and the most I adjust my photos is using sharpening and changing lighting. With the myriad of colours you use, I think your bookmarks would pop on my feed 😄 Lastly, I'm happy to host giveaways and post about sales on my feed, as well as my blog, Twitter, and Facebook page. My Instagram feed also shows up on my blog's homepage!
As Taheri Mafi is expanding her Shatter Me series, I would love to see bookmarks with quotes from her series, as well as symbolic representations of each character's ability (ex. A symbol of healing for the twins, or of invisibility for Kenji). I think your watercolour art would be a beautiful backdrop for these or can be incorporated within the designs themselves. I'd love to see your take on this series (it's one of my favourites 😜)
Thanks again for the wonderful opportunity and good luck to everyone who has entered!
Thanks all for reading! Wish me luck friends 😄🍀
#bookstagram #books #repsearch #nafall2017reps #nerdyaddiction #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookishlove #booklover #fan Good morning and happy Friday! I will be MIA the next few days as I pack and move out to school. I'm excited to get started with my program, but I'm also worried I won't have enough time to finish packing everything before Sunday 😅 I'll be back next week! Thanks for all the love 😘 Have a good weekend!
#bookstagram #books #tbr #colours #red #orange #yellow #starwars #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookishlove #booklover #fan #bookblog This is something I struggle with on a daily basis. What should I attribute value to? What should I invest my time and money in? I guess it's just the thoughts of a recent grad floating around me, but investments in the future are becoming more and more important to me and I'm at a loss. All I know is that I will always invest money and time into my book collection 😅
QOTD: Looking to the future, what are some of your greatest fears?
