TOP 5 WEDNESDAYS - THEME SONGS... ERR... FAVOURITE CHARACTER NAMES

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Top 5 Wednesday! It has been a few months, but lately all I feel like I post is book reviews, so I wanted to shake it up a little bit! If you want to check it out, you can go to the Goodreads group and read more about it. 

This week's topic is top 5 book theme songs, but I don't really listen to music while I'm reading, I find that I can't focus. However, next weeks topic is top 5 favourite character names, and because I have a blog tour scheduled that day,  I figured I would do that weeks topic today! This was actually pretty easy for me to come up with, because I keep a list of names I come across that I like... don't judge. Anyways, let's get to it!

Marlee from The Selection by Kiera Cass

There are so many unique and interesting names in this series, but one of my favourites is Marlee. I love how it is spelt, and because I am one those people who will associate a personality, even a fictious one with a name, and not be able to change that association. Marlee is one of the sweetest characters in this series, and that might be why I like the name so much!

Charlie from Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

I've always really liked the name Charlie, I know it's not really super original, but it is a classic name, and its being used more and more in a unisex way. In this case, Charlie is a girl (part of me wants to say it was short for Charlotte, but don't hold me to that). Again, it may be the allure of the story, but I just really like the name. Side note: no, I haven't read book three yet, but it's on my To Do List!

Sloane from Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

While I didn't really love this book, I do really love the name Sloane. Again, another unisex name that is becoming more and more popular these days. Also, for any Grey's Anatomy fans, Mark Sloane. *mic drop*

Noah from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins

Ok, this one may be 100% based on the character of Noah Shaw. It's just too hard to separate the character from the name at this point. If you've read this series, you will know the JOY that is Noah Shaw. And if you haven't, even though I didn't love book three, read it for the sake of this one character.

Adelina from The Young Elites by Marie Lu

This one is really interesting, and while I think the character in the books is also kick-butt, the name is very unique. I personally have never met anyone with the name before and it sounds like a classic name, with a twist, like Adelaide or Madeleine. Either way, I really like it!

Well, that's it for this weeks post! See you next time!
