Top Ten Tuesday: Villains We Love to Hate

Most of the Villains on here are lovable in a weird way, but some weren't. The dad in burned/smoke was not lovable at all but he was memorable because of how cruel/hateful he was. Aidan in Illuminae was the AI, and if I remember correctly he started off ok but he got a bit crazier as the story progressed.
Alastor in The dreadful tale of Prosper Redding was the demon who possessed Prosper. I that he was in a weird way lovable but a bit crazy. When Prosper found out he had a demon inside him the banter those two had was great.
Kaz in Six of Crows was the leader of the ragtag group of thieves. He was, for the most part, a snide, ruthless character who was in my opinion only in it for his own personal reasons. Then why do I say he is somewhat lovable? Well, once in a while you would get to see that maybe he had feelings for a few other than himself. He would have a look or something that you would be like awww there's a Kaz we can love.
The Beast from Beauty and the beast we should all know why he's a lovable villain. He started off hardcore and a beast, but eventually, he grew to love, and that love made for some awesome scenes.
Queen of hearts from Alice in wonderland whose going to tell me this lady shouldn't be on the list. I have a few books that revolve around her and so far the one I read was interesting.
The Commandment from An Ember in the Ashes from what I remember of her there wasn't much to actually love, but the way her character was portrayed to us as being this hardass, ruthless government type official was definitely memorable to me.
Legend and Jacks from Caraval are a few of the main characters in Legendary and if I say much about them it would give away some of the story. Just know as cruel and hard as they seem, like most of these characters on the list they have those moments where you want to hug them.
Rhysand/Tamlin/King of Hybern from ACOTAR I know I kind of cheated on this one and threw in a few from the series, but it's because of the dynamics of their characters changes throughout the series with the exception of the king of hyburn. Tamlin started off a guy that I adored in ACOTAR and Rhys not so much, but after reading ACOMAF the tables completely flipped, and Rhys was and will forever be my favorite.

Bookish Subscription Box: Uppercase Unboxing Oct 2018

From the Uppercase Website
"Uppercase is a young adult book subscription box. Simply put: You sign up and receive a YA book and a bookish goody every month! Plus the subscription comes with online access to extras like a live book discussion & recommendations for similar books."

This is all the stuff that came in the October Box.

I haven't heard of this book before now, and I 
                   do have the authors other book as well on my shelf that came in one
of my boxes. That book was Wild Beauty, I believe.

The letter and interactive bookmark.

These tickers are freaking adorable. The niffler and occamy.
Uppercase exclusive

These are earrings that go with the book. I don't wear 
earrings all that much, but they're still cute swans.

Another Uppercase exclusive. I will admit I love getting
beanies in the boxes, even though I can only wear them a few months
out of the year because Texas doesn't really know what cold means.

The book signed by the author is one of the few things I love about this box.

Top Ten Tuesday: Longest books I've ever read

Hi everybody! How's everyone's week been going? 

These are the top 10 (well 12) longest books I've read by page numbers.

I got these through Goodreads so more than likely it should be right.

If you notice most are from Harry Potter series, Twilight Series and The Night World Series. All of which I've read when I first started this site. :)
Then, of course, two ACOTAR books and Illuminae.

Have you guys read any of these books? What were your opinions?
