Top 5 Tuesday

Happy Tuesday my friends!  It’s been too long since I have done a Top 5 Tuesday, but I really liked today’s prompt, so here we are! Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Broke and Bookish where book bloggers are provided with a prompt so they can make LISTS of books in a specific category.  And if you have stuck around this blog for any amount of time you should know that I really love writing lists.  LOVE LISTS.

Today, the Top 10 prompt is “ten characters I’d name my child/dog/cat/fish etc. after.”  While my boyfriend and I have no plans to have any mini me’s running around any time, new puppies are always on the horizon for us.  If we didn’t live in an apartment we may already have an army of dogs running around.  I love thinking about my new, imaginary pups and what I am going to name them, so let’s get to it!  (Please forgive my Top 10 actually being a Top 5… to each their own eh?)

Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war; her parents were killed and her sister was kidnapped. Even though Em is only a useless Ruined—completely lacking any magic—she is determined to get revenge.

Her plan is simple: She will infiltrate the enemy’s kingdom, posing as the crown prince’s betrothed. She will lead an ambush. She will kill the king and everything he holds dear, including his son. 

The closer Em gets to the prince, though, the more she questions her mission. Her rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life—and her family—on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake.
