Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Character Names That I Loved

Hey everyone! I'll be back with a review in the next couple of days hopefully but today I thought the Top Ten Tuesday topic was fun so I'm taking part! Here are my Top Ten Character Names That I Loved!


1. Cricket Bell. Right, so he's from Lola and the Boy Next Door and at first I hated his name and thought it was stupid - I mean who would think Cricket was a good name? But as the book went on and he got more adorable, the name completely suited him and although I still think it's weird, it kinda fits and I actually really like it!

2. Plutarch Heavensbee. He's from Catching Fire and Mockingjay, and I just think his name is great! I love how there are so many names of Greek (Plutarch) and Latin (Caesar, Seneca) origin in The Hunger Games trilogy, but Plutarch Heavensbee was my favourite, I think.

3. Laureth Peak. I've just finished She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick and I laughed at how she was named this. Also her little brother's raven, Stan, too.

4. Blossom Uxley-Michaels and Petrina-Ola Olsen. I've put these two together because they're from the same book, Weirdos Vs Quimboids by Natasha Desborough, and because I love them for the same reason - just look at their initials! ;)

5. Bennett Cooper. I don't know why but I just loved that he was called Bennett. Time Between Us is also an adorable book and I kind of fell in love with Bennett so perhaps that has something to do with it...

6. Pippi Longstocking. Her name is just the best :P

7. Augustus Waters. It's a good name, that one! Again of Latin origin, which makes it even more awesome. I love Latin!

8. Aurora "Rory" Deveaux. Rory is the main character of The Shades of London series by Maureen Johnson, and although I generally think of Rory as a boys' name, I do really like it. Also the name Aurora is really pretty and reminds me of one of my favourite characters in Animal Crossing, so it's a pretty good name I think :P

9. Etienne St. Clair. It's just such a good name.

I can't think of a tenth name that I particularly liked so I'll leave it at nine. On the whole I like most character names, unless I don't know how to pronounce them in which case they're just annoying. On the other hand there are a few names I can think of that I really hate but for fearing of insulting people I won't share them :P Thanks to Broke and Bookish for hosting Top Ten Tuesday!

What are your favourite character names?
Are there any character names that you really don't like?
If you could rename a character, who would you rename and what would you change their name to?

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...

Synopsis from Goodreads:Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!

Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in the right direction. But with social media…

SERIES REVIEW: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Hello! Welcome to my appreciation post for one of my favourite series - The Illuminae Files!


I'm going to try and keep it non-spoilery but be cautious if you've only read Illuminae and/or Gemina
THE FACTS: Series title: The Illuminae Files

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results…
