Top 5 of Top 5
Featuring some of our favorite bloggers and talking about books

Today on Top 5 we have Christen from  

Introduce your self and Blog----

Hello! I’m Goldilox from Goldilox and the Three Weres and I’m really excited to be visiting the Ambers today! In the real world my name is Christen and I’m a Kindergarten teacher. In blogger world I read and review anything paranormal or fantasy.

Book Crushes

Let me just first say this will be tough!

1. Bones (Night Huntress series). Book two, chapter 32? ‘Nuff said.

2. Barrons (Fever series). Who doesn’t have a crush on Barrons??

3. Terrible (Downside Ghosts series). First of all, best name ever. Second of all, the way he feels about Chess despite all her craziness make me swoon.

4. Aren (Shadow Reader series). He’s that guy that doesn’t want the best for you - he wants him for you. He doesn’t want you to do the right thing - he wants you to do whatever will keep you safe.

5. Dorian (Dark Swan series). He likes ropes and chords. And he wants to name your child Thundro. What else could a girl ask for?

(Honorable mentions that I must mention: Packard from Disillusionists, Adam from Shatter Me, Reyes from Charley Davidson, Hank from Charlie Madigan, Jace from TMI, Tucker from Annabelle Lee, Curran from Kate Daniels, Archer from Darkest London…………………….)

Book Quotes

1. From Magic Strikes (Kate Daniels) by Illona Andrews

“Kate short-circuits my brain. In my head we always have these clear coherent exchanges, but once we meet, what comes out it is, “Kate, do what I say or I’ll kill you.” Her default reply is, “Fuck you!” and we go downhill from there.”

2. From City of Ghosts (Downside Ghosts) by Stacia Kane

“You know I do, aye? Love you right, Chessiebomb.”

3. From The Shadow Reader (McKenzie Lewis) by Sandy Williams

“If I were a good man,” he says, “I’d acknowledge that Taltrayn is an honorable fae, that he loves you and would take care of you. I’d step down and let you have the man you’ve always wanted, but, McKenzie, I’m not as good as Taltrayn. I never will be, and I can’t step down. I’ll fight for the chance to be with you.”

4. From Second Grave on the Left (Charley Davidson) by Darynda Jones

“…Two men from the FBI are here,” Cookie said.

Crap. “Men in black are at the office?” “Well, yes, but they’re actually in more of a navy.” Crapola. I so didn’t have time for men. In any color. “Okay, two questions. Do they look mad, and are they hot?”

After a long, long pause, Cookie said, “One, not really. Two, no comment at this time. And three, you’re on speakerphone.”

After another long, long pause, I said, “Okie dokie then. Be there in a jiff.”

5. From Head Rush (Disillusionists) by Carolyn Crane

"I used to say happiness was the absence of something - the absence of darkness, hate, fear. Especially fear. I thought, if I could get rid of my fear, life would be great...I see that I was wrong. Happiness isn't about getting rid of my fear. Happiness is when something outshines my fear."

Random facts about you

1. I’m almost done getting a Master’s degree (!!!). It will be a Master of Education in Reading. I am SO excited to be almost done!

2. I have a little fur ball Maltese (she makes appearances on the blog from time to time) and two tortoises.

3. I’ve never flown in a plane

4. I love to watch fantasy (obviously) type shows: Vampire Diaries, True Blood, and Game of Thrones, but I ALSO love to watch police-y type shows: CSI, NCIS, Bones, and The Mentalist.

5. I’ve been in a play that was on a professional theater stage.

Books that made you cry

1. Unholy Magic (Downside Ghosts #2) by Stacia Kane

The rooftop scene with Terrible and Chess and the later graveyard scene.

2. Double Cross (Disillusionists Trilogy #2) by Carolyn Crane

The ending. Good lord.

3. Prey (Shifters #4) by Rachel Vincent

A surprise that I didn’t see coming. Nearly threw the book across the room!

4. Shadowfever (Fever #5) by Karen Marie Moning

The whole first 8 chapters. Until we found out…you know…

5. Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires #4) by Chloe Neill

Obviously the end of this book. My jaw hit my chest.

Authors you would love to meet

1. Karen Marie Moning - Obviously.

2. Stacia Kane - She would rock to go have drinks with.

3. Darynda Jones - I bet she is funny, snarky, and loads of fun.

4. Carolyn Crane

  1. Wow. You've never flown a plane. I've never flown one alone. That's one thing I don't know if I can ever do, go to the airport alone. It's a bit scary. I need someone with me. ;))

    1. I am a HORRIBLE flier. seriously during take off and landing im holding onto my seat for dear life I get all sweaty and I then any little bump or noise I am jumping. Flying is scary.

  2. I hate flying! Though I'm a lot better then I used to be! Seriously, as a teenager I would get panic attacks and cry hysterically when I had to get on a plane but now, while I'm still gripping the seat and taking deep breathes at take-off and landing, I can now get on a plane without hysterics or tears! Lol, I think Prey is one of the books I nearly threw across the room as well! Glad to know I'm not the only one!

  3. i used to love flying until I had my oldest. Then I started getting air sick all the time -- I had a job that made me travel a lot back then-- and even now, 10 years later, it's never really cleared up. So now it's something I dread. I still have to fly but I dread it.

  4. And Faythe made me so mad! It was weird loving a book but not being able to stand the main character.

  5. Hi five on Darynda Jones! Love that lady's writing. I wish she would start a t shirt company.

  6. Christen once sent me a RAK of the latest in one of my fave YA series so I knew she was definitely awesomesauce...but reading her answers on this post gives her a gold star in my book! The only problem is we might have to battle for Bones...and Barrons...and Terrible, lol!

    So glad I got to know her a bit better! Although I am a bit stunned at the "never flown in an airplane" part but that's probably because I've flown 251,564,615 times, lol.

    Thanks for this cool post!

  7. Great! And yes, everybody has a crush on Barrons! :D

  8. Fun facts! I already love her blog.

    Thanks for sharing Christen and congrats on that Masters!

  9. Yay for the AwesomeSauce girls!!! This is such a cool feature and I've loved reading all your comments so far! And yes, it is ridiculous that I've never flown in a students have done more flying than I have and they're six...

  10. Really awesome job Ms Christen. Love the quotes and the authors you want to meet. That's a great list actually.

    Yeah, I don't blame you for the whole not flying though. I flew from FL to New Mexico after 9/11 and was terrified. I drive every where now, including to NY!
