You don’t have to look far to find the criticism against female heroines such as Bella Swan or Anastasia Steele, and I find myself agreeing with a lot of the arguments. Even though books and films such as Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey are entertaining to the masses, they are still influencing young women that indulge in them.

Top 5: Epic TV Show Couples


With all the TV shows ending for the season (and some forever) I decided to return to this my lonely blog to profess my undying love for the epicness of TV show couples. What I enjoy about TV show couples compared to those in movies is that in movies we only see a snippet of their lives together but in TV shows you see it all in detail – what they were before they were together, how they got together, their problems, their fears, the break-ups and the make-ups, all in technicolor glory. For me, an epic couple is not just one that is together on the show but one where love defeats all, one that has been through hell and back but their love is what saves them (you get the just). They’re the couples that make your insides twist with emotion, making you smile with elation when they finally get together or when the one just looks at the other in a pleasing way…This list on some of the most epic TV couples of the last 30 years was compiled with the help of some people on Facebook:

Top Five: Most Annoying Female Literary Characters (Part 1)

I’m nerdy enough to say that without a doubt books were my first friend. Which is probably why still today I fall in love so easily with fictional characters even if they are 1000-year-old half-vampire/half-werewolves (equals full sexy). But back to the topic, I was a bit of loner with much-older siblings and all of my friends living out of the area and we didn’t have DSTV so TV for kids ended at like 2pm when the soapies reruns start, so I started reading. Many of my books were gifts or my sister’s old books so I indulged in the classics – Little Women, What Katy Did, Pollyanna, Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl. Mostly there would be a character that I would relate to – another young girl who was terribly shy and would escape to the magical world of books etc. – but every now and then there would be a character who would literally make me want to pull my hair out strand for strand because they were so super annoying.

As I got older the characters just got worse and so I present to you my totally subjective list of top 5 most annoying female literary characters:
