My Favorite Books/Series (mostly series, though)

Today is a day I felt like going back down memory lane. Ahh, memory lane. What a nice place. And, of course, when I’m visiting memory lane, I want to meet all those books and series I fell in love with all those many years ago. Now, in honor of those gorgeous books and series, I felt like making a list for you to admire my phases of book series fangirlyness. (Keep in mind that these are in no particular order, just whatever comes into mind first).


  1. Alright, number one. The Harry Potter series. Actually, a lot of these are quite cliche. I’ve been a fan of Harry Potter for almost 9 years now. I watched the movies first, and while that goes against everything I stand for, I wasn’t able to read the books back then.
  2. Next up, The Percy Jackson series! (And the Kane Chronicles and the Heroes of Olympus series). Okay, so Rick Riordan is great. Truly. But the Magnus Chase books, just, I’m not a big fan, personally. Nothing can beat Percy Jackson, and only the Kane Chronicles came close.
  3. The School for Good and Evil series. Wow. Much applause. This is a very deep series. Truly. If you haven’t read it, please do. I’ve heard that there’s going to be a movie coming out soon,but I’m not sure, so if you are sure, please leave a comment, and let me know. Other than that, this book is one I kind of just fell in love with. I couldn’t have stated any flaws with it, and it’s one of those books that I can read over and over again and enjoy every bit. (Not that I don’t do that already…)
  4. The Naturals series! Oh my gods, how could I forget this one. This is so good, absolutely amazing. The idea itself, just, wow, and then the fact that this is one of the books where you can discuss (read: take apart) every character with your friends who happen to be reading it. It’s vaguely about serial killers though, so keep that in mind.
  5. The Hunger Games! Oh gods, I haven’t read this in a few months, agh sorry. It is a really good book, and the movies, like the Harry Potter ones (notice how I didn’t mention the Percy Jackson movies) were really good at staying true to the story. The ideas for these stories, oh gods.
  6. *Now realizing they have all been series so far, Ivy takes a different tactic* Bitter Melon! Good book (not series, you’re welcome *insert smiley face here, because smiley faces look weird in parentheses), especially because the plot is designed to make you think about how horrible humanity is. See, this is why I like realistic fiction. The book is actually about a mother and daughter, and I can’t describe it, because as I’ve mentioned, I suck at descriptions.
  7. The Graceling series. Wow. That was a good series. I must thank May, actually for introducing the series to me. It was definitely a good series, and I loved the way the characters were made, they were all truly special.


You know, 7 is a good number. I might just end it here. I’m sorry for all the text, but I suck with graphics and I’m very bad at finding pictures and/or GIFs. Have a nice day.


Hey, you lovely people !


Hello, everyone. I’m Ivy. Ashtyn. Ivy Ashtyn. Yup. That’s me.

I apologize in advance for all the awkward moments you may encounter on this blog.

So, today is an important day. The day I had important work due, but my lovely blogger friend (link in the ‘P.S.’) forced me to ignore my homework that is due tomorrow. Friend of the year award everyone. But actually, this friend is a lovely person. Surprisingly. Don’t get too happy, May. You’re not that great. She not only made me post this, but also helped me out with a lot of the graphics you will be seeing, as well as the header. She’s somewhat of a cool person.

Now, onto the things I’m sure you’re absolutely dying to know. The blog! So, I plan to write stuff about music, just songs that I personally enjoy, fandom stuff, stuff about my characters, who I hope you will like… And books and just kind of writing in general. Maybe even some stuff about life…? Which I’m not really qualified for, considering how disorganized everything is. 

Well I think that’s it. Thank you for surviving through the first post, and… yeah!

And… GOODBYE. Oh wow, that’s another thing. Not big on all caps or exclamation points.

– Ivy

P.S. That blog’s link…

Go check it out if you haven’t.

P.P.S. Also, I am a big fan of comments. Constructive criticism is always good. So is just random stuff… I really like talking to people… though it may not seem like that…

P.P.P.S. Also, I really like ellipses.
