25. Jake Abel as Luke Castellan

I haven’t even seen the Percy Jackson movies, but a friend (thanks, Madhu! ) told me to check out this guy….. And God, I swear, he’s definitely top-25-worthy..

SRK. Shah Rukh Khan.....blessed indeed

Just look at his smile..

He's old enough to be my dad, but in his younger days... whoa.  I can see why SRK was one of India's top picks for film.

1. Ian Somerhalder

Ian Somerhalder...what a gorgeous human being.

I exist because of him.. ❤ He’s sooo awesome. Look at eyes.  Look at his smile. Have you seen him smirk?? Okay, that’s enough, Sripurna.

Any additions? Because I did this list in a hurry!!

And before I swoon over my computer table…

Top 25 swoon-worthy book heroes

I’m just NOT going to give an introduction. You can be patient and read through, or you can skip this post, but I HAVE to make this one post.

25. Hunter- Never been Kissed (C.M Kars)

This one is a recent crush but Hunter’s charms are irresistable.

24. Trevor- Perfection ( Neighbour From Hell #2) (R.L. Mathewson)

“How dare you question my taste, woman?” he demanded. “If I say you’re beautiful then you’re beautiful so get the hell over it!”  – Trevor

*raised eyebrow*

23.Aaron Warner- Shatter Me series

I hated to love him!! I was actually on Team Adam, and then suddenly I don’t know what happened.

My dream cast:


22. Ashton- Nothing left to lose (Kirsty Moseley)


First of all, the book is AWESOME… Ashton just enhances its appeal, makes it cuter. And again, his dialogues..

21. Archer- Archer’s Voice (Mia Sheridan)

My sweet, silent, innocent Archer Hale.. *sigh*

“I lost my heart to you. And, Bree, in case you’re wondering, I don’t ever want it back.”

Archer, in case you’re wondering, I don’t want my heart back either.

20. Percy Jackson (Not going to mention the book -_- )

Although I friend-zoned him, he’s one of my all time favorite heroes…

LOGAN!!!!!!!! He is my favorite person In the world.  REPIN IF U AGREE!!!

….. Or maybe I really like Logan Lerman (although I haven’t watched the movies) No, no.. I love Logan, but Percy is…. well… Percy.

Percy Jackson Quotes haha love Percy Jackson!

See what I mean??

19. Landon Young (This Sky- Autumn Doughton)

“I’m so far gone that I almost lift her face and kiss her on the mouth. I almost admit to her that I’m losing myself. I almost tell her I love her. Insane, I know.

He messes with my brain, I swear..

18. Michael Tolland- Deception Point (Dan Brown ) I can’t explain my attraction towards this guy. If you’ve read the book, maybe you can relate??

17. Michael Moscovitz -Princess Diaries (Meg Cabot)

In my defense, he was one of my first book crushes. I wasn’t as experienced then. 😛

I’m so humiliated to admit this. Ugghh!!!

And Note: I hated this one book I read from the series, so DON”T judge me.

Also, I seem to have a weird fascination towards book characters named Michael.

16. Warden / Arcturus- The Bone Season (Samantha Shannon)

After reading this book, for one whole day only one name flashed through my brains.Guess which one…

According to :

Like all Rephaim, Warden is very tall and has chartreuse eyes when he hasn’t fed on aura. His skin is dark honey gold and his hair is ash brown in color. He has a strong jaw and bow shaped lips. Paige describes him having “irises like flame behind stained glass”.

15. Miles- Ugly Love (Colleen Hoover)

Re-read the author’s name. Yes, now you get me?? No?? Then why are you sitting infront of the computer or phone or whatever when you should be reading a CoHo book ASAP ???

Okay, I’ll just tempt you more:

You won’t get this until you’ve read all her books, but anyways, this is Colleen Hoover’s  review on Goodreads, while she was writing Ugly Love:

Miles. Miles, Miles, Miles.

Seven books I’ve successfully completed.

Will? He didn’t make me cry when I wrote him.

Holder? Nope. No tears, here.

Daniel? I might have pissed myself laughing.

Ridge? Heart wrenching, soul-crushing. But dry eyes.

Miles? Miles, Miles, Miles. He’s making me bawl like a baby.

Yaaaa…..And my feelings for Miles:

And why I love him:

“Tate :“What rules?” Miles :“Well, for one, I’m not allowed to break your heart. Second, I’m also not allowed to break your damn heart. And last, I’m not allowed to fucking break your damn heart.”

14. Dare- Nocte series (Courtney Cole)

Dude, did you just read his NAME?? Well his name is actually Adair DuBray, but still… And then, this book… Sorry, i know you’re tired of hearing this but- I can’t explain.

Book, stop messing with my head *bangs head against wall*

Dare, that goes for you too.

13. Josh Benett- Sea Of Tranquility (Katja Miller)

Another book with kidnapped my brains. Another hero who killed me again.

Mmmhhmm.. Something like that..

“He’s the kind of good-looking that transforms once self-respecting females into useless puddles of dumbass.”
12. Etienne St. Clare- Anna And The French Kiss (Stephanie Perkins)
 “I trail my fingers across his cheek. He stays perfectly still for me. “Please stop apologizing, Étienne.” “Say my name again,” he whispers. I close my eyes and lean forward. “Étienne.” He takes my hands into his.Those perfect hands, that fit mine just so. “Anna?” Our foreheads touch. “Yes?” “Will you please tell me you love me? I’m dying here.” And then we’re laughing. And then I’m in his arms, and we’re kissing, at first quickly—to make up for lost time—and then slowly, because we have all the time in the world. And his lips are soft and honey sweet, and the careful, passionate way he moves them against my own says that he savors the way I taste, too. And in between kisses, I tell him I love him. Again and again and again.”  
French and American parents, but he has a British accent. Messy brown hair, which is good enough for shampoo ads. Brown eyes. Adorable personality. What else do I need?? Reality is worthless compared to guys like Etienne!!
11. Four- Divergent
THIS was my dream cast for Four!! 😦
 10. Will- Slammed (Colleen Hoover)

Again, look at the name of the author please..   A poem that Will wrote:

“And life definitely doesn’t want me

To just let it tell me

that the girl I met,

The beautiful, amazing, strong, resilient girl

That I fell so hard for

Should only come in third

Life knows.Life is trying to tell me

That the girl I love

The girl I fell

So hard for?

There’s room for her in first.

I’m putting her first.”

No questions, right?? Just read the damn book…

9. Lucas- Easy (Tamara Webber)


And that is just the cover of the book..Artistic, passionate, caring…. *sigh* Why does reality exist again??

 8. Christian Grey- 50 shades darker (E.L. James)

Do Not Judge Me. I HATED him in the first book, obviously. But I must say, the hearts-and-flowers version of Mr.Grey is too tempting.

Well, he says these stuff and I go *swoon*

Aaand, as I’ve mentioned a countless times, Ian Somerhalder will always be Christian Grey for me. Do you still blame me??

7. Oren Tenning- A Perfect Ten (Linda Kage)

The best ever bad boy!!!!



6. Christian- Take This Regret (A.L.Jackson)

I’ll just copy paste whatever media I had added in the review for this book.


And my Christian:

Ian Somerhalder is perfect for guys named Christian, don’t you think? *wink*

5. Asher- When It Rains ( Lisa de Jong)

I want to say sooo many things but I’m awesome and I don’t give spoilers, so..

“When it rains, think of me.

The quote can seem immensely cheesy to you now, but once you read the book, you’ll get me.

Perfect casting:

 photo image_zps259471e6.jpg

My heart: broken into pieces… You know what, just DON’T read this book. It might destroy you.

4. Ivan- If You Could See Me Now (Cecelia Ahern)
He’s wild and spontaneous. He’s invisible.
“Elizabeth’s hands flew to her mouth; tears filled her eyes with happiness
as she realized he was fulfilling yet another of her and her mother’s intended activities.
“Why are you fulfilling all of my mother’s dreams?” she asked, studying
his face and searching for answers.
“So you don’t run away like she did in search of them,” he replied, taking
her hand. “Come on, join in!” he said, leaping around.”
Ivan. Is. life.

3. Daemon Black- Obsidian (Jennifer L. Armentrout)

He’s an alien.

A hot, sarcastic, arrogant alien.

I love him.

I’m hypnotized by his imperfect perfection..

2. Finn (Switched- Amanda Hocking)
He wasn’t even the hero in the damn story!!!!
When I read the blurb where they describe him as “dark and intriguing”, I’m like, I want him. He reminded me too much of a person I knew in real life (only by looks, please).
But warning, he’s as creepy as Edward Cullen- as in ,watch your girl sleep kind of creepy. I just like him because of different reasons, which I’m sure anyone who knows me well would understand. *wink*
1. Patch- Hush, Hush (Becca Fitzpatrick)
Wanna hear the truth?? The book wasn’t even that good. Patch again reminded me of the same person that Finn did.
And Patch’s dialogues.. He’s one of the most sarcastic and funny hero ever…
Please, somebody, understand my attraction…

“Coach: “All right, Patch. let’s say you’re at a party. the room is full of girls of all shapes and sizes. You see blondes, brunettes, redheads, a few girl with black hair. Some are talkive, while other appear shy. You’ve one girl who fits your profile – attractive, intelligent and vulnerable. Dow do you let her know you’re interested?”

Patch: “Single her out. Talk to her.”

Coach: “Good. Now for the big question – how do you know if she’s game or if she wants you to move on?”

Patch: “I study her. I figure out what she’s thinking and feeling. She’s not gonig to come right out and tell me, which is why i have to pay attention. Does she turn her body toward mine? Does she hold me eyes, then look away? Does she bite her lip and play with her hair, the way Nora is doing right now?”

I know he’s cheesy, but…
“Hang on, did you just call me Angel?” I asked.
“If I did?”
“I don’t like it.”
He grinned. “It stays, Angel.”
Oh, did I mention that he’s a fallen angel??
So, we come to an end of this huge post which took me a week to complete. I’m sorry for all the can’t-explain-why type phrases, and the fan-girling. Plus, I’m too lazy to type too much, so maybe I haven’t given enough justifications. But say this is my favorite post that I created so far. *sigh*
For Peeta and Augustus lovers: I love them but Peeta is a beta hero, and my type is Alphas.. And Augustus, I love him, but he’s not really this list material. I really friend-zoned him. Sorry. 😦
Anyways, you should just make lists of your own featuring your favorite heroes, and point out the ones I missed!! ;-P Remember to send me a link!!

Top 40 All-Time Favorite Songs

Recently, my friend Bhramori posted something like this on her blog, thecrazyperfectionist. Thanks to her, I’ve been inspired to finally do this post which I’d been planning for months !!  Hers was a top 30 post, but it seems like I am not able to limit my favorites to only 30!! Also, I have kind of tried to put the songs in reverse order.So here we go… 40. Demons- Imagine Dragons This song speaks to me, and ALWAYS listen to it whenever it appears on my shuffle playlist! 39. Try- Nelly Furtado I actually disliked this song the first time I heard it, but the second time was magic.

I wish I hadn’t seen all of the realness And all the real people are really not real at all

38. Stop and Stare- One Republic I heard it years ago on the radio, and I’ve loved it ever since. 37. Secrets- One Republic The music in the beginning 36. Half A heart- One Direction I know its a One Direction song, but this one is ACTUALLY good. Trust me, its really sweet and the tune is not very cliche. 35. More Than This- One Direction A song about unrequited love, according to me this is the best song One Direction has managed to create. 34. You Belong With Me- Taylor Swift There was a time when this song was MY song.. But of course, since life is not a Taylor Swift video, my story ended differerently, no happily-ever-after. But still.. 33. Lately- The Helio Sequence I recently posted a quote from this song. Its kind of my song NOW, except it depends on how you interpret it. 32. She will be loved- Maroon 5 Who does not like this song? 31. Daylight- Maroon 5 Lyrics-wise, this song is so melancholy, so sad. I don’t know how it fits so well with that kind of upbeat tempo and tune. 30. Tangled up in you- Stain’d For me, this song defines love. 29. You’ll Think Of Me- Keith Urban I’ll be very honest, I like this song only because of Keith Urban’s voice.. *swoon* 28. Who Says- Selena Gomez Any girl who is ever feeling low, or unworthy, should listen to this song. 27. The Ballad Of Love and Hate- The Avett Brothers. Guys, seriously, atleast just read the entire lyrics of this song. BEST. LYRICS. EVER. 26. The Man Who Can’t Be moved- The Script Another awesome song lyrics-wise. 25. Swept away- Avett Brothers The song that gave me my blog name.. 24. Bartender- Lady Antebellum 23. Lips Of An Angel– Hinder My reaction when I realised the meaning of this song: 22. Say Something- A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera But sometimes you just have to realise that he won’t say something, ’cause he doesn’t care… 21. Addicted- Enrique iglesias I’m addicted to this song… 20. Airplanes- B.o.B So true.. 19. Hotel California- Eagles Have you heard the guitar solos?? They are freakin’ amazing!!!! 18. Country roads- John Denver One of the first English songs I heard… 17. Fearless- Taylor Swift Self-explanatory.. 🙂 16. Last Kiss- Taylor Swift Worst realization ever.. 😦 😦 15. Someone Like You- Adele This song gets me… 14. Impossible- Shontelle Guys are jerks.. I swear.. 13. I see fire- Ed Sheeran Three words only- Ed. Sheeran’s. Voice. 12. Dear John- Taylor Swift I love, love, love this song.. For everything about it. 11. I’ll follow you into the dark- Death cab for Cutie Although it sounds morbid, this song is very cute. 10. All Too Well- Taylor Swift Again, self-explanatory.. 9. Love The Way You Lie (Part 2)- Rihanna ft. Eminem Surprisingly, my favorite part is the rap by Eminem. This has to be the most passionate song I’ve ever heard.. 8. Hey There Delilah- Plain White T’s Cutest song ever.. 7. Youth- Daughter I don’t like falling short of words, but I can’t explain this song to anyone. You just have to hear it. 6. Numb- Linkin Park A lot of people don’t get the lyrics of this song, but its mainly about drowning under expectations. I think its the song of a kid to his parents. Check this link out for detailed description and lyrics: 5. Wake Me Up When September Ends- Green Day

Huh, we all love this song, don’t we?

Here comes the rain again Falling from the stars Drenched in my pain again Becoming who we are

As my memory rests But never forgets what I lost Wake me up when September ends

4. Teardrops on my guitar- Taylor Swift

Reminds me why I adore Taylor Swift songs..

3. Fix you- Coldplay

*wipes away tears* Lyrics….. ❤

2. The Only Exception- Paramore Paramore usually doesn’t have songs like this, but this one is simply beautiful. 1. Need you now- Lady Antebellum I. Love. This. Song. 🙂 Sripurna. P.S.: (To, someone who’ll never come across this page) I know you’ll never be reading this, but I’d like to be clear. Although most of my favorite songs are my “favorites” because they remind me of you, it doesn’t mean that I don’t hate you.

Top 25 books I read this year (2014) – Romance genre

This has to be the most difficult list I’ve ever made. Specially because after getting a new phone this year, I’ve been reading too much. And me being the romance-obsessed person that I am, I had too limit the list to books that I’ve read only this year. 😛 If you want the review or playlist for any of these books, all you need to do is comment in the box below. 🙂

25. Remember When Trilogy– T.Torrest


I LOVED the first book, liked the second, was disappointed with the third. But this one remains one of my favorite series’ that I read this year.

24. Flipped– Wendelin Van Draanen

Flipped is the most unsatisfactory but sweet books I’ve ever read. I don’t even know whether this counts counts as a romance novel. Probably belongs to a genre called ‘first love’.

23. Seaside series- Rachel Van Dyken


Okay, so its melodramatic, unrealistic and cliche. Doesn’t stop me from loving it. Please, all of us need some fictional characters to drool over. Demetri, Alec, and Jamie are PERFECT.

22. Hush, hush- Becca Fitzpatrick

This one isn’t really my type of book, but one word will be enough to justify why I LOVE it- Patch. (You know him if you’ve read the books)

21. Loving Mr. Daniels– Brittany C. Cherry

Very cliche. Very sweet.

20. Dear Adam– Ava Zavora

This book is waaaaaayyy different from all the typical romance novels you read. The concept is freakin’ awesome.

19. Coming home– Priscilla Glenn

A pure romance, but not too cliche. It has a warm fuzzy feel to it, so I’d say its a ‘comfortable’ book.

18. Ugly love – Colleen Hoover

Its Colleen hoover, of course its awesome. Just read it without doubt, if you like romance and suspense.

17. Neighbour From Hell- R.L. Mathewson

11381643   12351649   13624367   17352874

Want a good laugh? Love romance? Find fighting couples cute? This is your series. And all the books haven’t even been published yet, just the four above.

16. Just One Wish– Janette Rallison

Its adorable.. I loved its uniqueness, simplicity, and writing style. But the ending???!!

15. Archer’s voice– Mia Sheeridan

Sweet, unique, heart- touching.

14. 50 Shades Of Grey– E.L. James

Shocked? Don’t be.. If you’ve read it, you probably know why. Putting aside the erotic and insensitive parts, the last two books of this series have quite a sweet bit of romance. And of course, I imagined Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey, so it kinda increased the love.. 😛

13. Reasons I fell for the funny fat friend– Cassie May

This is like my dream love story, I don’t know about funny, but I am kind of the DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend), so….

12. Hate List – Jennifer Brown


Don’t read this if you want a romantic book. This book shows romance from a different, negative side. Dark, haunting, this book will make you THINK.

11. Saving June – Hannah Harrington

I almost disliked it in the beginning, but as I kept reading, it was impossible to put the damn book (or in my case, my phone) down. And, trust me, in the end, you are rewarded for reading the whole thing and not dying of suspense.

10. Collision Course – S.C. Stephens

Search for the blurb on Google, you’ll get a hint as to why I love this book.

9. Annie’s Song – Catherine Anderson

Its old-fashioned, its sweet, its awesome. At least read the blurb.

8. Twenty Boy Summer– Sarah Ockler

Sarah Ockler, you are bloody amazing..*wiping tears from my eyes*

7. Butterfly Weeds– Laura Miller

*contented sigh* God, I’m such a romantic fool…*tears*

6. When It Rains– Lisa De Jong

To read my review and playlist, click here.

5. Take This Regret– A.L. Jackson

Look at the name of the book, guys. It was bound to be amazingly awesome. I’m making the playlist, I’ll post it soon. 🙂

4. The Sweet Gum Tree– Katherine Allred

Some might find the writing style boring, but the story is really good.

3. Hopeless series– Colleen Hoover


Just go read the Prologue, you won’t be able to put it down.

2. Slammed series– Colleen Hoover

Sometimes I hate Colleen Hoover for writing this book and creating this imagery in my head of a perfect romance.

1. Sea Of Tranquility– Katja Millay


The last two words. You know what I mean if you’ve read it.

So there you go, the best of my entire year.
