Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Fictional Presidents

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.  This week is an election-based freebie, so I’m going with my favorite fictional Presidents.

I only have 7, but here they are:

7. Jack Stanton (John Travolta) in Primary Colors. This was clearly a mock on Bill Clinton, and Travolta played this role so well. He’s hard to like yet hard to hate…

6. Selina Meyers (Julia Louis Dreyfus) in Veep. She wasn’t President for very long, but this foul-mouthed Democrat is hilarious and JLD is very worthy of her 6-straight Emmy’s.

5. Thomas Whitmore (Bill Pullman) in Independence Day. Who doesn’t love a President who is also an ex-fighter pilot? He gave one of the best speeches in a movie, ever!

4. Dave Kovic (Kevin Kline) in Dave. This is such a great movie. The president is a cheating douche and his doppelgänger steps in to save the day.
3. David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) from 24.  Oh President Palmer, miss you! Such a great character overall, added to the fact that he was a president. Love him!!
2. Andrew Shepard (Michael Douglas) in The American President. My top 2 picks were both written by Aaron Sorkin. He writes such amazing characters. President Shepard gives an amazing speech at the end of this movie. It was the ultimate mic drop before those existed.
1. Jed Bartlet (Martin Sheen) from The West Wing. One of my favorite TV characters of all time is Jed Bartlet. This entire cast was amazing, but Jed Bartlet was the best. Hands down.
Who is your favorite fictional president?

Despite my hatred of Gabe, he made a good Gaga.

Kevin really didn’t need a costume for Charlie Brown!

Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Books from the year I started blogging (2013)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish blog.

This week is a freebie, and I am going to do my favorite books from the year I started blogging, which was 2013.  I read 105 books in 2013, and 16 of them were by Kristen Ashley!  Two of those books are on the list below.

These were my favorite books from 2013.

Heller by JD Nixon.  Tilly, a clumsy, hilarious girl, begins working for a security company run by the incredibly private Heller.  He has an oddball staff that works for him, and Tilly fits right in.

Wallbanger by Alice Clayton.  Caroline’s new neighbor Simon is quite a “wallbanger” with the ladies.  She confronts the hot Brit and sparks fly.  Hilarious story.

Making Faces by Amy Harmon.  The story of Fern, a geeky girl who had a crush on the hot guy from school.  He goes off to war, and comes back to find Fern is the only friend he has.  One of the best books I’ve ever read.  Beautiful.

Rock Chick by Kristen Ashley.  Indy Savage runs a coffee shop in Denver, and has crushed on her best friends brother Lee for years.  A little mishap throws them together, and hilarity ensues.  Great group of characters.  Another one in my 10 all time favorite books.

Law Man by Kristen Ashley.  Mitch Lawson is a cop, and finds himself attracted to his neighbor Mia.  Mia is taking care of a family members two kids, and Mitch will do everything in his power to keep them safe.


Strangers by Barbara Elsborg.  A story of two very broken people who meet at the most inopportune time, and end up saving each other.  Beautiful story.

The Unidentified Redhead by Alice Clayton.  Another funny book by Alice Clayton.  Grace is a woman acting in LA and meets Jack Hamilton, a very famous actor.  Jack is instantly smitten with Grace, and the paparazzi soon catch wind of Jack and the unidentified redhead.  Really funny book.

When you Dare by Lori Foster. First book in a series about a group of mercenaries who rescue women from dangerous situations.  I enjoyed this book and the series.

Exquisite by Ella Frank.  Mason owns the hottest restaurant in Chicago, and meets Lena, a doctor.  Sparks fly with an amazing supporting cast of characters.  I waited 3 years to read the other two books in the series. No clue why I did that.

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover.  I don’t really know how to describe this book other than amazing.  Not something you expect but just so good.  I would highly recommend this book.

Well, that’s my list. Happy Tuesday!
