Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Want To Read In 2016

Ten Books I Want To Read In 2016

painter Eduard Klieber 
Well, a new year often makes me (and everyone, I'm sure) reflect on things. We start New Years Resolutions, creating elaborate plans for this year. Reading more is definitely one of mine. Will I attain to read all these books this year? I hope so. If not, I'll have fun trying. :D

Five Glass Slippers by Elisabeth Brown, Emma Clifton, Rachel Heffington, Stephanie Ricker, Clara Diane Thompson
- Five short stories about Cinderella?! I mean, do I even have to think about this? I seriously want this book right now.

Melissa Tagg
-Heard SO many good things about her books. Can't wait to get my hand on one.

Rebel Queen by Michelle Moran
-Saw this at the library. I really love niche historical fiction - this is about a historical Indian queen and her female warriors. Sounds boss.

Her One and Only by Becky Wade
-Can't wait to finish Becky Wade's Porter Family series.

Winter by Marissa Meyer
-I NEED THIS BOOK!!

Deluge by Lisa T. Bergren
-I know, how have I not read this yet? The truth is, I love the River of Time series. I read all the books, and even own the novellas Torrent & Bourne. But I had no idea about Deluge even being written, for awhile. Now I know, so I need to read it. :D

Five Enchanted Roses by Kaycee Browning, Savannah Jezowski, Jenelle Schmidt, Dorian Tsukioka, Hayden Wand
-BEAUTY AND THE BEAST RETELLINGS!??! Slay me now!

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
-I've heard a lot of emotional, excited hype about this one. Sounds really good.

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
-I read the first book years ago, Throne of Glass. I liked it but wasn't super eager to read the next book. Then imagine my surprise when I see all the unbelievable hype about this and the rest of the series. I'm reading to jump back on the bandwagon.

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Ahem.
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
