My Favorite Things Part II and Happy New Year

In my first year of blogging, I shared my favorite books to the tune of "My Favorite Things"; and since I had so much fun with it and I’ve read so many great books this year, I thought I’d do it again. Plus, The Sound of Music is a favorite of mine -- Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, not this year’s unfortunate remake (Sorry, Carrie and Vampire Bill) -- yikes!

So apologies in advance if this seems sacrilegious to the hardcore Sound of Music fans, but here is this reader’s version:

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver, white winters that melt into springs

Nah....this is more like it:

Reaper (Soul Screamers, #3.5)The Sea of Tranquility

An Easy boy to love with a tattooed heart of gold,
 Snarky sexy reapers who will never grow old, 
Garages with sawdust and names with meaning,
 These are a few of my favorite things. 

♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ 

Slammed (Slammed, #1)
This Girl (Slammed, #3)Sweet Thing (Sweet Thing, #1)

You keep your ocean, I’ll take the Lake,
Will’s are the best, make no mistake, 
Sexy parabatai and the joy that they bring,
These are a few of my favorite things.
Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)

♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫  

Losing Hope (Hopeless, #2)
Crash into You (Pushing the Limits, #3)Deity (Covenant, #3) 

Hot hopeless boys that go stealing my heart, 
 The time Hades showed up in that mini-mart, 
 Bad boys with fast cars who make my heart sing, 
 These are a few of my favorite things. 

♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ 

Eleanor & Park
Dearly, Departed (Gone With the Respiration, #1)Origin (Lux, #4)

The eighties and young love that made my heart melt, 
A hot swoon-worthy zombie… wait… what the hell?  
Arrogant aliens who love human beings,
  These are a few of my favorite things. 

♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫

On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street, #1)
Allegiant (Divergent, #3)Wait for You (Wait for You, #1)

Hot caveman Braden who I simply adore,
 Beautiful and Dauntless – that’s my boyfriend, Four ;)
Cam and his turtle and the cookies they bring,  
These are a few of my favorite things.

♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
 Beloved series ending... 

Boundless (Unearthly, #3)Requiem (Delirium, #3)Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)
With All My Soul (Soul Screamers, #7)Allegiant (Divergent, #3)Sentinel (Covenant, #5)

Movie adaptations that are so offending... 

These things make me sad...

But I simply remember my favorite things:

♫ ♫ ♫ And then I don't feeeeeeeeel soooooooooo baddddddddd!♫ ♫ ♫ 
♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫ ♫

Hope everyone has a fabulous 2014 filled with books, books, and more books!!
