February Book Haul!!!

Here’s another post, bookish people! It’s time to talk about the books I bought and got this month!

February was a crazy month because I started the 2nd semester of college 2 weeks ago and I still have my lazy mood on! I really have to change that soon because exams are coming and I also have essays to write, so… I have to work! Also, despite all the work I have to do for college, I hope I read a little bit more in March. I only read 2 books this month (I’ll post one review tomorrow and the Wrap-Up as well), which is bad! Only 2? REALLY???

Anyway, I’m here to talk about the books I bought/got this month, so let’s do this!

12935353

So, I ordered two books in January, Cinder and Scarlet (the first 2 books of The Lunar Chronicles series, by Marissa Meyer). They arrived at the 1st week of February, I think, and I wish I had read them this month, but I couldn’t! I will try to read Cinder in March, tho!

Then, I bought Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland And Through The Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll. I’ve always wanted to read these stories and I’m glad I found an English edition on my local bookstore!

The other books I bought are Portuguese and you probably don’t know them, so I’m not going to talk about them. All I can say is that I have to read one of them for college and there’s a poetry book that was signed by the author when I met him this month! **

The last book I bought, and you already know which one is if you read what I posted yesterday, is the Portuguese edition of Golden Son, by Pierce Brown! SO BEAUITFUL!

What about you? Did you get many books this month? 😀

The OTP Book Tag

Heyyy, bookish people! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It’s already over and I can’t believe it… I don’t want to go to college again!

i-cant-naya-rivera
Not ready for the pain….

Anyway, I bring you a book tag! YAYYYYY!
I think I have one or two tags to do before this one, but I lost track of them, so this is the only one I’m going to do. This is the OTP Book Tag and I was tagged my Cristina from @MyTinyObsessions. Thank you for tagging me, Cristina!

 

P.S- SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T READ THE BOOKS I MENTION!

 

tumblr_nl2jhoMm8S1tsfx8ro2_400


 

  1. An unpopular OTP that you ship: I actually don’t have an answer for that because I usually ship OTPs that everyone else loves to ship, so….

    anigif_enhanced-buzz-12245-1381781387-11


2.  An OTP that you didn’t ship but now you do: Don’t hurt me, people, but there was a time I thought Harry Potter would end up marrying with Hermione Granger because of the movies… However, now that I’ve read 5 Harry Potter books, I toally ship Romione! **

THIS IS SO ADORABLE!

 

3. Your most hated OTP: Well, this is probably about OTPs that everyone love to ship. but I hate. In this case, I must say that I hate Katniss+Gale or Galeniss. Just… NO. They were fine as best friends and I actually felt bad about what happened to their friendship in Mockingjay, but I have always thought they would never be a couple. As I said, they were good as BFF.

See? They were totally fine. As friends.

4. An OTP that took way too long to get together: My poor babies, Katniss and Peeta! They suffered so much, but I’m glad that they worked it out!!!

 

MY BEAUTIFUL BABIES!!!!

 


5. Your favorite non-canon OTP: Hmmm…. An OTP that’s not official… At least, not yet… Well, I choose Darrow+ Mustang, from Red Rising trilogy. I haven’t the whole trilogy yet, so I don’t know if they are really “a thing”. Actually, I bought the second book yesterday. But I loved to see Darrow interact with Mustang! I think there’s potential!

The feels!!!!

6. Your favorite BROTP: Bruhhhhh… THE GOLDEN TRIO!!!! They are all freaking amazing individually, but as THE GODDAM GOLDEN TRIO, THEY ARE EVEN MORE AMAZING! I mean, I know Ron and Hermione are an OTP, but you know what I mean.

“Why am I so emotional…” *crying a river*

7. An OTP you adored in the books but not as much in the movies or tv adaptation: I really don’t like Divergent movies very much… They are nothing like the books, which were awesome! I freaking ship Tris+ Four so hard in the books, but when I watched the movies… Goddamn, what the hell did they do? I’m not saying that the actors don’t have chemistry between each other; they do! However, I think that’s just my problem: I didn’t picture them as Tris and Four. WHatever, I still prefer TrisFour in the books rather in the movies.

This is so adorable and I can’t even!

8. A popular OTP that no matter how hard you try you just can’t ship it: Galeniss. Enough said.


9. Your favorite LGTB+ OTP: OMG, MALEC FROM THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS!!!!! YESSSSSSSS!
I have to say that the book-to-tv show adaptation may have many flaws (although I still kind of enjoy watching it), but Malec is ON POINT!

THIS!!!!!! YESSSS! SO GOOD!

10. Your all time favorite OTP: WHAAAAAAAAAAAT? OMG, I don’t know… Whatever, Everlark, or Peeniss, again!!!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

 

I tag: EVERYONE! I could tag some people, but I think this book tag is kind of popular and maybe they have done it already, so feel free to do it!!

There’s another post coming today, so see you soon!!!

Book Haul: Golden Son (Red Rising #2), by Pierce Brown

Heyyyy, bookish people! Look what I finally bought today:

 

IMG_20160227_203845

 

YESSSSS, I bought the Portuguese edition of Golden Son, the second installment of Red Rising trilogy, by Pierce Brown!

 

tumblr_n6jvewyzKA1roc1m0o1_250

 

I have been waiting for this book since last summer, for God’s sake! And now you’re thinking: Daniela, you could have bought the original edition, right?

Well, the thing is… If I started it in Portuguese, I’m going to finish it in Portuguese, especially because the covers are totally different. Also, I love this Portuguese publisher, Editorial Presença! Of course I would like to buy Golden Son in Portuguese!

It was released on 18th February, which means that it took 9 days to arrive to where I live. Of course that I felt sad every time I went to the bookstore and saw that it wasn’t there. But there are times that books only arrive 2 weeks later, so this one didn’t take that much time.

Anyway, I actually can’t read it because… you know… college…
I have so many things t read for college. Not only pages and pages of theory, but also novels. For example, I have to read Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, then I have to read The Island of Doctor Moreau, by H.G. Wells. I think I also have to read Hard Times, by Charles Dickens. But I actually feel excited about reading these books! I also have 3 Portuguese novels to read and a classic tragedy. Yup, that’s a lot!


However, I’m glad that I finally have Golden Son!!!

Here’s the Goodreads synopsis: With shades of The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, and Game of Thrones, debut author Pierce Brown’s genre-defying epic Red Rising hit the ground running and wasted no time becoming a sensation.

Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom from the overlords of a brutal elitist future built on lies. Now fully embedded among the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his work to bring down Society from within.

A life-or-death tale of vengeance with an unforgettable hero at its heart, Golden Son guarantees Pierce Brown’s continuing status as one of fiction’s most exciting new voices.

I watched Deadpool 2 weeks ago (I think), and IT WAS AWESOME!!! Of course I had to use this gif!

Question for those who have The Lunar Chronicles books!

Hey, everyone! Happy weekend!!!! I hope you read alot this weekend! I’m going to study a little bit for college, even though I don’t have exams yet, only in the end of March.

Anyway, I have a question for those who have Marissa Meyer’s books: Do you know if the paperback edition of Fairest has this:

 

I know that the hardback has, but I don’t think my father will allow me buying the hardcover… And I loved this art, so I would like to know if the paperback edition has it. Please, answer me, if you know! 😀

 

 

Book Travelling Thursdays · Bookworm stuff

Book Traveling Thurdays- Share the Love!

168709 Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly meme that was created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. All you have to do is to post covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group. You have to post the original cover, the one that exists in your country, and finally your favorite covers and least favorite ones.

This week’s theme is: Share the Love!! Choose an underhyped book that you think everyone should read.

HOLY CRAP! IF YOU HAVEN’T, YOU SHOULD TOTALLY READ ENDGAME-THE CALLING, BY JAMES FREY AND NILS JOHNSON-SHELTON! It’s such an amazing Sci-Fi book and if you have heard people saaying that it’s like The Hunger Games, DON’T LISTEN TO THOSE PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY ARE SO WRONG BY SAYING THAT IT’S A COPY OF THG! IT’S NOT, I PROMISE!

Anyway, I’m definitely going to leave here the Goodreads synopsis:

Twelve thousand years ago, they came. They descended from the sky amid smoke and fire, and created humanity and gave us rules to live by. They needed gold and they built our earliest civilizations to mine it for them. When they had what they needed, they left. But before they left, they told us someday they would come back, and when they did, a game would be played. A game that would determine our future.

This is Endgame.

For ten thousand years the lines have existed in secret. The 12 original lines of humanity. Each had to have a Player prepared at all times. They have trained generation after generation after generation. In weapons, languages, history, tactics, disguise assassination. Together the players are everything: strong, kind, ruthless, loyal, smart, stupid, ugly, lustful, mean, fickle, beautiful, calculating, lazy, exuberant, weak. They are good and evil. Like you. Like all.

This is Endgame.

When the game starts, the players will have to find three keys. The keys are somewhere on earth. The only rule of their Endgame is that there are no rules. Whoever finds the keys first wins the game. Endgame: The Calling is about the hunt for the first key. And just as it tells the story of the hunt for a hidden key, written into the book is a puzzle. It invites readers to play their own Endgame and to try to solve the puzzle. Whoever does will open a case filled with gold. Alongside the puzzle will be a revolutionary mobile game built by Google’s Niantic Labs that will allow you to play a real-world version of Endgame where you can join one of the lines and do battle with people around you.

Will exuberance beat strength? Stupidity top kindness? Laziness thwart beauty? Will the winner be good or evil? There is only one way to find out.

Play.
Survive.
Solve.
People of Earth.
Endgame has begun.


There are readers that say that this book is like a copy of The Hunger Games only because it’s a Sci-Fi book and also because it has 12 teenagers, you know, that come from 12 different places. Also, they are in some sort of game. Therefore, people that HAVE NEVER READ the book, say this crap. I can tell you that they are wrong! So wrong! It’s not a copy of THG! I LOVE THG, and I can tell you that Endgame is NOT a copy. If it was, I would be mad, okay? Period.

I hope I don’t sound like a rude person! It’s just that it doesn’t make sense that there are people saying these stupid things about a book they didn’t even read!


Original cover: This books is published in many countries and I think each one of them decided to keep the original cover and just do some little changes. The cover is so cool, by the way!

The Calling (Endgame, #1)


Cover from your country (Portugal): See? Portugal kept the original cover. Thank God! I love it! I actually prefer the yellow of this cover!

 

 

 


Favorite cover: Once again, Portuguese cover!

 

 


Least Favorite Cover: There are no least favorite covers for this one because they all look the same.


 

Special one: I have told you that the covers, in other countries, look the same, but I found out that the Chinese one is totally different. They only kept the symbol, but it still looks cool!!

絕境之戰 首部曲 召喚

 

So, what your choice? What is the underhyped book that you think everyone should read?

 

 

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: Actually, there’s only one book… Ops….

Here’s a little introduction about the meme, which was created by The Broke and the Bookish:

“Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.”
Those paragraphs were taken from The Broke and the Bookish. For more information, here’s the post.

This week’s theme is: Ten Book I Enjoyed Recently (last yearish) That Weren’t My Typical Genre/Type of Book (or that was out of your comfort zone).

Ok, guys, I’m going to cheat on this one because it’s really rare for me to read books that are out of my comfort zone, so… let’s talk about Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn!
Gone Girl
Goodreads synopsis: On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?
My comfort zone is: Fantasy, Sci-Fi, YA Contemporaries and classics. Thrillers aren’t included here because I prefer them as tv series or movies. Also, you have to be really good at writing thrillers. You have to know how to give a few pieces of information, but they must be interesting enough for the reader. You also have to create a fresh story because, after all, there are many thrillers that sound like the same story or many of them are just full of clichés. As you can see, I really don’t read thrillers because I’m afraid I’ll get disappointed and I’ll feel like I just wasted my time.

 

tumblr_inline_mn0htvRqv21qz4rgp
I’m usually not impressed when I read thrillers. But Gone Girl… Oh my.

But I read Gone Girl. I read it because everyone was talking about the movie (I even saw so many gifs on Tumblr; yes, I saw spoilers too, but I still enjoyed the book) and, eventually, everyone was talking about the book. Of course that, at first, I was like: “no, I’m not going to read it because I don’t like to read thrillers”. But I decided to challenge myself and I bought it and holy crap, I’m glad that I bought it! It was freaking amazing! So creepy, but so good! And the freaking “grey” characters, you know? They aren’t really good people, but maybe they aren’t that bad either; they can’t be defined as good OR bad. They are just… scary human beings, you know? I freaking loved how well they were created. I think they are definitely the best thing in this book. And, of course, I loved the plot. DAMN!

What is impressive is the fact that I saw many gifs that shown major spoilers, but they didn’t make me not like the book. What I mean is that, even though I knew some major things, I still enjoyed the book! Yes, it was that good!

Actually, just read my review, which I posted on Goodreads when I read it last summer:

This is an incredibly terrifying book! Toxic and stunning. It has all the qualities that a psychological thriller should have: it messes with our mind in an extremely mind-blowing way!

Gillian Flynn is a very intelligent author: all well planned, not only the plot, but also the construction of the characters. Everything was done in such a meticulous way. Congratulations on writing such a briliant book, Gillian Flynn!

Gone Girl was an explosive, surprising reading, with stunning twists, credible and remarkably real characters and a well-structured plot and fascinating, making us think, making us to ask the question: Do we really know the ones we love?

There are probaly other books that I have read and are out of my comfort zone, but if I don’t even remember them it’s because they were bad, and that’s not the point of this week’s theme.


That’s it for today, bookish people! Let me know if you have read Gone Girl and, if so, if you have enjoyed it!

Cover reveal: Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2), by Leigh Bardugo

Hello, bookish people!! I’m so sorry that I haven’t posted much lately… College is making me feel lazy and I have so many papers to read… and books, of course. Actually, I’m still reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! I don’t know what is going on with me because I should have finished it already…

Anyway, I’m sorry for the lack of posts, but here I am now! Today you are going to read two posts! The first one is this cover reveal:

 

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)
The cover of the second and last installment of Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo.

Goodreads synopsis: Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of magic in the Grisha world.


I have only read one Leigh Bardugo’s book, which is Shadow and Bones, the first book of the Grisha trilogy. I freaking loved it, although I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars. That’s because I really didn’t like Alina, the main character, in the first half of the book.
I haven’t read the other books yet because the first one was published here in Portugal, I bought it and I have always been waiting for the second book. However, this Portuguese publisher is very famous for stopping publishing series, and this happend to the Grisha trilogy. I hope I buy the others soon.

Anyway, what I really want to have on my bookshelf is the freaking Six of Crows, the first book of her new duology. I haven’t read/heard any negative reviews yet! I mean, everyone is saying that it’s her best book! And you don’t have to read the trilogy if you want to read this new duology, by the way.
I hope that I get Six of Crows soon because Crooked Kingdom, which now has such a PHENOMENAL COVER, OMG!, is going to be released on September 22nd. I really hope that, by then, I have read Six of Crows.

If you haven’t read Six of Crows and you don’t know what it’s about, here’s the Goodreads synopsis and its cover:

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)

Goodreads synopsis: Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Kaz’s crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.


The Six of Crows‘s cover is absolutely stunning and I though it would be difficult for the second installment to have a better cover. But I was wrong. THIS ONE IS EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL!!!! I FREAKING LOVE IT! UGHHHH, I NEED SIX OF CROWS ASAP!

For those who have read this book and are waiting for Crookef Kingdom, here’s an article where Leigh Bardugo revealed plot details: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/herocomplex/la-et-hc-author-leigh-bardugo-reveals-plot-details-and-the-cover-to-crooked-kingdom-20160222-htmlstory.html

Have you read Six of Crows already? Did you enjoy it? What do you think of Crooked Kingdom‘s cover?

Book Travelling Thursdays

Book Traveling Thurdays- Crying a river

168709

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly meme that was created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. All you have to do is to post covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group. You have to post the original cover, the one that exists in your country, and finally your favorite covers and least favorite ones.

This week’s theme is: Crying is not always bad. Choose a book that made you ugly cry.

I actually don’t really cry while/after reading. Instead, I get a heartbreak. I guess it’s worse. Anyway, for this, I chose The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak, because I think it would be a pure book (I know it’s set during WWII, but I though that everything would end up ok!), but it’s actually full of pain. Let’s cry a river, guys…

Original cover: I don’t know which one is the original cover.

Cover(s) from your country (Portugal): There are two- the one with Liesel (the main character) and Death; and the movie tie-in edition:

I have the movie tie-in one and I think it’s beautiful!

Favorite covers:

La Voleuse de livres
French cover- I think it’s pretty nice!

Least Favorite covers:

The Book Thief
One of the English covers: I think there’s too much going one. Also, there’s something that doesn’t really fit…

 

The Book Thief
English cover: It could have been awesome without that blood. Also, that title font… Meh.
Книжный вор
Russian cover: Too creepy. It looks like an horror book…
偷書賊
Chinese cover: Too simple and too meh.

 

That’s it for today! I have more posts for tomorrow!!! Byeeeee, bookish people!

 

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday- Please, don’t stop the music!!!

Oh, well, I really wanted to post this with this title ahahahah.

Here’s a little introduction about the meme, which was created by The Broke and the Bookish:

“Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.”
Those paragraphs were taken from The Broke and the Bookish. For more information, here’s the post.
I didn’t post this in the right day because I got home late and I had had classes all day, so… Anyway, this week’s theme is:  “music & books. We previously did books we’d give theme songs toso feel free to do that! Or 10 songs I wish that were books (check out my love songs I wish were booksfor an example of what I mean) — Thanks to the couple people who suggested making this one an official topic. I don’t know why I hadn’t…I think I thought my post WAS for TTT in my head when I thought back to it”.
So, I decided to do post 5 songs that could be AMAZING themes for certain books (I haven’t read some of them, but according to what I’ve heard about them, I will do this anyway)  and 5 songs that I wish were books.
First, let’s talk about 5 songs that could be themes for books:
  1. “Human” (Christina Perri) could be a nice them for Cinder, the first book of The Lunar Chronicles series, by Marissa Meyer. I haven’t read it yet, but Cinder, the main character, is a cyborg and I think that the lyrics of “Human” might describe what Cinder feels about being different.

    “But I’m only human
    And I bleed when I fall down
    I’m only human
    And I crash and I break down
    Your words in my head, knives in my heart
    You build me up and then I fall apart
    ‘Cause I’m only human”


     

  2. Alive (Sia) was written for Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games trilogy) , for sure! Like, seriously, if you haven’t listened to it yet, listen and check the lyrics! Damn, I love you, Sia!

    THIS: “I had a one way ticket to a place where all the demons go
    Where the wind don’t change
    And nothing in the ground can ever grow
    No hope, just lies
    And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
    But I survived”

    IT REALLY SOUNDS LIKE SIA IS DESCRIBING THE FIRST THG BOOK! HOLY CRAP!


     

  3. “Unconditionally” (Katy Perry): I think this song is perfect for A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J. Maas. It’s like it was Feyre who wrote this! It totally describes her feelings for Tamlin!! **

    “Unconditional, unconditionally
    I will love you unconditionally
    There is no fear now
    Let go and just be free
    I will love you unconditionally”


  4. “Kiss Me” (Ed Sheeran): OMG, THIS SONG IS DEFINITELY PERFECT TO DESCRIBE WHAT DEAN HOLDER FEESL ABOUT THE WHOLE SKY’S SITUATION AND THER RELATIONSHIP! By the way, this characters are from Hopeless, by Colleen Hoover. Yes, if you haven’t read it yet, you should. THE. FEELS.

    “Settle down with me
    And I’ll be your safety
    You’ll be my lady”


  5. “When the Darkness Comes” (Colbie Caillat): I know, this song was in City of Bones-The Mortal Instruments soundtrack (I’m talking about the movie, of course), but I think it’s perfect for Shadow and Bone, by Leigh Bardugo. It kind of sounds like it was written by Alina (the main character) to show how she feels about the Darkling, but also how she feels about her new “identity”.

    “Underneath the echoes
    Buried in the shadows
    There you were

    Drawn into your mystery
    I was just beginning
    To see your ghost
    But you must know

    I’ll be here waiting
    Hoping, praying that
    This light will guide you home
    When you’re feeling lost I’ll leave my love
    Hidden in the sun
    For when the darkness comes”


Now, let’s talk about songs that could be books! The first choice is definitely my favorite!

  1. “Castle” (Halsey): HALSEY IS FREAKING BRILLIANT AND THIS SONG IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES EVER!!!!!! It has this fantasy vibe with hints of dystopian vibes as well! OMG, THIS SONG IS SO FREAKING AWESOME!

    “I’m headed straight for the castle
    They wanna make me their queen
    And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean
    I’m headed straight for the castle
    They’ve got the kingdom locked up
    And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut”


  2. “Broken Glass” (Sia): Sia is one of my favorite singer/songwriters, too! SHE IS FABULOUS!! And this song???? OMG! I think it would be perfect as a New Adult book! **

    “I’m not discarding you like broken glass
    There are no winners when the die is cast
    There’s only tears when it’s the final chance
    So don’t give up, it’s just young lovers’ romance
    So don’t give up, it’s just young lovers’ romance”


  3. “Fight Song” (Rachel Platten): This song is so beautiful! It would definitely be perfect as a YA novel where the main character is kind of lost and is suffering, but then she/he finds the strength in themselves!

    “Like a small boat
    On the ocean
    Sending big waves
    Into motion
    Like how a single word
    Can make a heart open
    I might only have one match
    But I can make an explosion”


  4. “Control” (Halsey): ANOTHER HALSEY’S SONG BECAUSE SHE IS PERFECT AND THIS SONG IS SO BADASS! It would totally be amazing as a Fantasy/Dystopian novel written in the villain’s POV! HOW COOOL WOULD THAT BE????

    “I’m bigger than my body
    I’m colder than this home
    I’m meaner than my demons
    I’m bigger than these bones”


  5. “A Drop in the Ocean” (Ron Pope): This song is so beautiful, too! I think it could be YA novel, where the main characters are star-crossed lovers or one of them didn’t appreciate the time he/she had with the other one! Sad, I know.

    “A drop in the ocean
    A change in the weather
    I was praying that you and me might end up together
    It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
    But I’m holding you closer than most ’cause you are my heaven”

 

 

I hope you liked this post! There’s another weekly meme coming! See you soon!

Book mail: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2), by Marissa Meyer

YESSSSSS! Do you remember that I ordered Cinder (the first book of this series) and Scarlet last month? Well, I got Cinder in the end of January and it looks beautiful! Now, I also finally got Scarlet!!!! Its cover is also so beautiful, omg! It’s a paperback, by the way! I can’t get harbacks because they are a little bit more expensive and I have to save money if I want to buy more books on Book Depository!

The bookmark is so adorable! I love it!!!! *-*

I actualy read some lines when I opened this book (to check if everything was ok) and there was one that I really loved and it’s from Thorne. I think he’s going to be one of my favorite male characters. Ops.

I actually got it on 10th February, but  only posted this now because… well, I don’t even know. I guess that in that day I had already written 2 posts and I didn’t want to post another one because it could have been too much for just one day. But here it is!

I’m not going to post its synopsis because it has some spoilers. Not many, but I prefer to not post for those who don’t want to get spoiled. Like me. Ops.

The spoiler is not that important, but it’s about the ending of Cinder. Anyway, I just wanted to post this gif. Don’t be sad, my dear Doctor.

I really want to start Cinder soon! There are so many people that love this series and I really want to know why!
