Top Ten Tuesday #4: Edgar Allan Poe and more

This week I'll be addressing two topics instead of one.
But before we start, if you haven't seen my giveaway, here's the link.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Broke And The Bookish.
I love lists too.
This week's list consist of inspiring quotes. Instead of bouncing around, I decided to stick with Edgar Allan Poe.
Not in any order of importance and favoritism.

“Sleep, those little slices of death — how I loathe them.”


“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.”


“Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute.”


“If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered.”

 “I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.”


“All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.”


“That which you mistake for madness is but an overacuteness of the senses.” 


“The fury of a demon instantly possessed me. I knew myself no longer. My original soul seemed, at once, to take its flight from my body; and a more than fiendish malevolence, gin-nurtured, thrilled every fibre of my frame.”


“To die laughing must be the most glorious of all glorious deaths!” 


“And I fell violently on my face.”

I personally love that last one. Lol.

I love lists too.
These are my repetitive problems with romance books.
 Not in any order of importance.

Top Ten

#1 The characters won't kiss and keep missing their moment

#2 You absolutely don't give a rat's ass about the MC

#3 When a character refuses to reveal his/her past, beckons you to root for them, understand their actions and feelings, and sympathize with them, but you’re just like:

#4 Damsel in distress. MC who won't step out of her role as the whiny victim.

#5 The cockblocker. The guy you aren't rooting for won't leave the triangle

#6 Guilty-pleasure books. When you know how bad and stupid a book is, but you like it anyways without the shittiness

My guilty pleasure: Beautiful Disaster

#7 Abuse and rape is made to be romantic.

#8 Cheating is okay as long the girl is a bitch/the guy is a dick. Cheating is hot.

#9 Slut-shaming. Slut-calling. You name it.

I'm Britney Spears. The rest of you is the guy to the bottom right.

#10 Fucking insta-love. Insta-lust. Keep it in your pants.

Cee named The Mistress Case after Sherlock (BBC with Benedict) and Supernatural (Dean, baby). She writes mainly book reviews. On occasions, movies and TV shows. She reads and reviews in many genres, including fantasy, historical, contemporary, romance, erotica, mystery, etc. She personally rains more love on fantasy and historical romance and hopes you won't hold it against her.

  1. I've never read any Poe, but those quotes have made me want to go and find one of his books (did he write books? He's not that popular in Britain...)!

  2. I've read Edgar's work before, he's quite popular in the U.S :) lovely picks overall <3 Benish | Feminist Reflections

  3. I've never really read any of Poe's work other than the one about the raven and a heart under the floor, or something like that, when I was in middle school, well that's all I remember about it anyways. I think the quote ''Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minuet" is so true. You've got a nice list, Thanks for stopping by yesterday.
