The Diverse Books Tag

Here I am again, guys! This time, I bring you a bookish tag!

I was tagged by Cristina @MyTinyObsessions to answer the Diverse Books Tag! Thank you, Cristina!

I kind of have a problem with this tag: I haven’t read many diverse books yet. If there are diverse books in Portugal, they aren’t really well known, I guess. Also, when I can order books, I order Sci-Fi or Fantasy novels, and not all of them are really diverse. Therefore, most of my answers are books that I would like to read!


A book starring a lesbian character

The Summer I Wasn't Me
Oh, we are starting well… I don’t think I have one… But after some research, I found a very interesting book: The Summer I Wasn’t Me, by Jessica Verdi.
This book has some mixed reviews and it has 3.85 stars on Goodreads. However, I think I would like to read it because it’s about something that, unfortunately, exists nowadays in our society: camps for LGBT people where they learn how not to be who they are. I mean, what the hell? Being a LGBT person is not a flaw, it’s not a mistake. LGBT people are people. That’s it. So, yes, I think this books seems interesting. This is a very important issue.

A book with a muslim protagonist

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban
I definitely want to read I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban. Since this is a non-fiction book, we can’t really say protagonsit. Anyway, I really want to learn more about Malala. All I know about her is what I watched on news channels. Since I admire what she has done so far and what she is still doing, I really want to read this book.

____________________________________________________________________________

A book set in Latin America

The Old Man Who Read Love Stories
Oh, here’s a book I have read! The Old Man Who Read Love Stories is set “In a remote river town deep in the Ecuadoran jungle”. I only gave it 3 out of 5 stars. Here in Portugal, LuĂ­s SepĂșlveda is a very well known author, so when one of my college teachers said that we had to read this book for class, I was glad I finally had the opportunity to really read one of his books. But I didn’t love it, and I didn’t hate it either. It was just okay.

____________________________________________________________________________

A book about a person with a disability

All the Light We Cannot See
All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr, has a blind character. I haven’t read it yet, but I think it’s going to be on my July TBR list. It was a birthday gift from one of my friends and the funny thing is that I almost bought it before my birthday! I’m glad I didn’t.
This novel has som many good reviews and I can’t wait to read it.

____________________________________________________________________________

A science-fiction or fantasy book with a POC (Person of Color) protagonist

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1)
I chose a Fantasy book I haven’t read yet, but I hope I get the book soon: An Ember in the Ashes, by Sabaa Tahir. This book has many POC characters, I think. It has many positive reviews and there is already a Portuguese edition! Yayyy! But I want to read it in English.
I have mentioned here that, last summer, I asked my aunt from Canada to send me some books, and An Ember in the Ashes is one of them. The problem is that it’s summer again, which means it has been one year since I said that to my aunt and she hasn’t sent me the books yet… I really have to talk to her about that.

 

 

____________________________________________________________________________

A book written by an indigenous or native author

Tilly: A Story of Hope and Resilience
I never thought of reading books written by indigenous authors! It just never crossed my mind. But I did some research for this tag and I found Tilly: A Story of Hope and Resilience, by Monique Gray Smith. The author is a “mixed-heritage woman of Cree, Lakota and Scottish ancestry”. Tilly is “loosely based on author Monique Gray Smith’s own life, this revealing, important work of creative non-fiction tells the story of a young Indigenous woman coming of age in Canada in the 1980s. With compassion, insight and humour, Gray Smith illuminates the 20th-century history of Canada’s First Peoples—forced displacement, residen­tial schools, tuberculosis hospitals, the Sixties Scoop. In a spirit of hope, this unique story captures the irrepressible resilience of Tilly, and of Indigenous peoples everywhere”.
Well, it sounds like an interesting book!

____________________________________________________________________________

A book set in South Asia

The Kite Runner
According to Goodreads, “South Asian countries include India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan. Some people also include Burma/Myanmar, Afghanistan, Iran and the Maldives as part of South Asia”. I do have a book for this categorie and it’s on my To Buy list: The Kite Runner, by Khaled Housseini.
I watched the movie in high school and it made me cry. Such a sad story, even though it has beautiful lessons about friendship. After I watched it, I promised to myself I would read that book one day. I should really order it. I could read it in Portuguese but, once again, now I want to read more books in English.

____________________________________________________________________________

A book with a biracial character

Eleanor & Park
Yay, another book I have already read! Park, from Eleanor and Park, is half Korean, half American boy.

____________________________________________________________________________

A book starring a transgender character or transgender issues

The Art of Being Normal
I’m going to steal Cristina’s asnwer because she chose a book that I really would like to read someday. The Art of Being Normal, by Lisa Williamson, has so many positive reviews and I never read about a transgender character. I have read book with gay characters, but never with transgender and I guess this is the kind of book everyone should read since there is so much ignorance about transgender people.

Greek Mythology Tag

Hello, bookworms! Happy Monday! Have a day full of good vibes!

 

Here I am with another book tag! Later, I’ll post my review about Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell. Yes, I finished it yesterday. Yes, my heart is broken. Yes, THE FEELS!

Let’s move on! I was tagged by Cristina @MyTinyObsessions to answer the Greek Mythology book tag! Thank you, Cristina!

Let me say that I FREAKING LOVE GREEK MYTHOLOGY! IT’S SO DAMN COOL! I definitely need to finish reading Percy Jackson series, by the way. And read every single Rick Riordan book. Yup, good plan.

____________________________________________________________________________

ZEUS (JUPITER): GOD OF THE SKY AND THUNDER / KING OF THE GODS

Favorite book (choose your own category!)

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)
Ok, I choose Dystopian books and, in this case, I choose Catching Fire, the second book of The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins. It’s my favorite of this trilogy, by the way!

When I read the last chapter of this book, I completely lost my mind. My poor Girl on Fire.

 

____________________________________________________________________________

HERA (JUNO): GODDESS OF MARRIAGE AND FAMILY

Cutest fictional couple

Eleanor & Park
Since I just finished Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell, I choose Eleanor and Park.
OMG, THEY ARE SO FREAKING CUTE! I GIGLED SO MUCH! I WAS ALWAYS SMILING WHEN THEY WERE ACTING IN SUCH A CUTE WAY! MY HEART!

This is such a good YA novel. OMG, I can’t even.

____________________________________________________________________________

ATHENA (MINERVA): GODDESS OF WISDOM, HANDICRAFT AND STRATEGIC WARFARE

Series with the best world-building

OF COURSE I CHOOSE THE HARRY POTTER SERIES FOR THIS! WHO WOULDN’T LIKE TO GO TO HOGWARTS? WHO WOULDN’T LIKE BEING A FREAKING WIZARD/WITCH, FOR MERLIN’S BEARD????

Man, I wished the Harry Potter world was real…. *crying a river*.

Anyway, good job on building such a fantastic world, Queen J.K. Rowling!

____________________________________________________________________________

APHRODITE (VENUS): GODDESS OF LOVE AND BEAUTY

Most beautiful cover on a 2016 release

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)
I haven’t read this series, but the cover of The Raven King, the fourth and final book of The Raven Cycle series, by Maggie Stiefvater, is just glorious!

Blue is my favorite (green and purple are my favorite colors as well) and I really love blue covers. This one is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life. It looks magnificent!

____________________________________________________________________________

ARES (MARS): GOD OF WAR AND BLOODSHED

Most violent book you’ve ever read


I chose a series instead of a book because I haven’t read all these books, but I know they are violent. I have only read the first book, by the way.

A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin, is a must read, but I can’t read the other books right now because I have other bookish priorities.
Can I just say that I freaking love the tv show? IT’S SO FREAKING AWESOME!

____________________________________________________________________________

HEPHAESTUS (VULCAN): GOD OF BLACKSMITHS AND FIRE

Scorching hot swoon worthy character


In other tags, I have mentioned this…. Rhysand, from A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy,
by Sarah J. Maas, is my man!

I think I’m one of the few people who loved him from book one! Anyway, I really, really love this amazing man. Of course that my love for him has grown since I read some A Court of Mist and Fury spoilers. Ops. I can’t wait to read this sequel!

____________________________________________________________________________

ARTEMIS (DIANA): GODDESS OF THE HUNT AND VIRGINITY

 Favorite Kick-Ass Heroine

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)
I could talk about The Hunger Games again (MY GIRL ON FIRE IS SO BADASS!), or I could talk about the Harry Potter series (Hermione, Ginny, Luna, they are all badasses in their own ways). I’m going to talk about Tris, tho (from the Divergent trilogy). I feel like I’m not into that trilogy anymore and I honestly don’t know why. I think I can blame the movies. As adaptations, they are freaking terrible.
Oh, I could talk about Feyre, from ACOTAR! But I already mentioned these books.

Instead I choose a character from a series I haven’t read yet, but the first book is on my shelf. I have heard many things about Celaena Sardothien, from the Throne of Glass series, and one of the things I have heard is the fact that she kicks everyone’s asses. I can’t wait to meet her.

____________________________________________________________________________

PHOEBUS APOLLO (APOLLO): GOD OF LIGHT AND HEALING

Sequel book that redeemed its series

City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3)
I choose City of Glass, the third book of The Mortal Instruments series, by Cassandra Clare. Even if it’s a third book, it’s still a sequel, right? Yes, yes it is.

I enjoyed City of Bones and City of Ashes, but I didn’t LOVE them. But then I read the third book and, this time, I loved it, so I can’t wait to read the other books!

 

____________________________________________________________________________

HERMES (MERCURY): MESSENGER GOD OF THIEVES AND COMMERCE

Book with the best message

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)
If I Stay
, by Gayle Forman, may be a very simple novel (still full of feels, tho), but it has a very powerful message: Don’t give up, even if things get hard. You can still fight harder, you can still live. You can still find hope, you can still find light in the darkness.

____________________________________________________________________________

HESTIA (VESTA): GODDESS OF THE HEARTH AND HOME

Book with the most relatable story


I’m going to steal Cristina’s answer and I choose another book I haven’t read yet, but I think I’m going to love it because it was written by Rainbow Rowell and the main character is a fangirl! YESSSS! I’ll try to order Fangirl soon, but I’m not sure if I’ll succeed.

____________________________________________________________________________

DEMETER (CERES): GODDESS OF FERTILITY AND AGRICULTURE

Favorite bookish setting


I am sorry, but I really had to choose Harry Potter again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

____________________________________________________________________________

DIONYSUS (BACCHUS): GOD OF WINE AND CELEBRATION

2016 release you are most anticipating

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)
It’s already out and I already have it, but, as I said here, my copy is damaged and, since I have other books to read first, I’m going to wait for the new copy. Yes, I am talking about A Court of Mist and Fury, by Sarah J. Maas!!!

Heartless
But I can also say I am really curious about Heartless, by Marissa Meyer, It’s a retelling of Alice in Wonderland and Meyer is known for writing amazing retelling, like The Lunar Chronicles series. I already have Cinder and Scarlet, which means I can deal with the wait.

The Harry Potter Book Tag

Hello again, bookworms! Thank God it’s already Friday! Hurray! I’m on summer vacations already, so it doesn’t make me any difference if it’s Friday or Saturday, but for those who have been working so hard lately, or studying, I hope you enjoy your Friday night and your weekend!!

As you can see, I have another book tag for you! Thank you Lauren @DarlingBear for tagging me! I’m really excited about this Harry Potter tag!

This book tag and the following graphics were created by @bookidote and they said that we can’t use the Harry Potter books as answers. Ops.

Well, let’s answer this creative tag!


flagrate

A BOOK YOU FOUND THE THEME INTERESTING, BUT YOU’D LIKE TO REWRITE IT.

 

I was really excited to read Tiger’s Curse, by Colleen Houck, because I really liked what I read in the synopsis because there would be Indian mythology elements and I was like: Oh, so cool!Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga, #1)

But then I read the book… The author barely talks about mythology and I got the idea that she only used Indian culture, specially the clothing, so that her main female white character would wear the beautiful clothes and feel pretty and…. Ugh, it really made me feel upset! So, yes, I would definitely rewrite this book! I also hated the characters and the love triangle, which didn’t make sense at all.

 
____________________________________________________________________________


THE FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES THAT GOT YOU HOOKED.

 

 

A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J. Maas! I REALLY LOVED IT AND I CAN’T WAIT TO READ ITS SEQUEL, A Court of Mist and Fury!A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)

If you like retellings, you should read this book because it’s a very unique retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

____________________________________________________________________________


A BOOK YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE RIGHT NOW.

 

 

I have already talked about my copy of A Court of Mist and Fury here on my blog, so I don’t want to repeat myself. Instead, I choose Illuminae, by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman.
Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

This book is EVERYWHERE! Bloggers write about it, booktubers talk about it, bookstagrammers take photos of it, and I’m just like: SOMEONE SHOULD GIVE IT TO ME NOW!!!!
I really love Sci-Fi and I think this is the right book for me!

 

 

 

 

 

____________________________________________________________________________

A KILLER BOOK. BOTH SENSES. TAKE IT AS YOU LIKE.

 

Whenever I look at my copy of Hopeless, by Colleen Hoover, all I can think is that this freaking book is so beautiful, it’s magnificent, but it really killed me because FEELS!!!Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)

This book is so good and I definitely want to read more CoHo books!! She is such a wonderful writer!

 

 

 

 

 

____________________________________________________________________________

A BOOK THAT YOU FOUND REALLY CONFUSING.

 

 

Endgame- The Calling, by James Frey and Nils Johnson-Shelton, was kind of confusing when I started it because there are many POVs, but then I got used to it and I really loved the book!

The Calling (Endgame, #1)

I already have the sequel, Endgame- The Sky Key, on my shelf and I’m really curious about it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

____________________________________________________________________________

YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL BOOK.

 

 

I have no idea for this one! Maybe Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow RoweEleanor & Parkll, even though I haven’t finished reading it yet (but I’m loving it!).

I really like Eleanor because she is like me: fat, shy and she thinks too much about what other people think, and I’m exactly like her. But then there’s the fact that she loves to talk about the things she loves, like comic books and music. In my case, I love to talk about books and tv shows. And Benedict Cumberbatch.

____________________________________________________________________________

A DARK TWISTED BOOK.

 

 

The book that immediately came to my mind was Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn.Gone Girl

That book was so good because it’s twisted and dark. I thought I wasn’t into thriller books, but then I read this one and it changed my mind. I should read other books like this one. It was really a good surprise.

____________________________________________________________________________

adaasd

A BOOK THAT SURPRISED YOU IN A GREAT WAY, REVEALS TO BE MORE THAN IT IS.

 

The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak, was a wonderful surprise!The Book Thief

Before I read it, I thought that it was just another WWII fictional story with a little girl as the main character, but then… The narrator is Death! Then, it talks about how books are so wonderful and how bad it was to live during those awful years. We all know that WWII was terrible, but reading about it… It just feels real, like it’s happening right in front of me. This book is superb.

____________________________________________________________________________

This tag is so awesome and I’m not going to choose people to answer it because I think many people have already done this, but if you haven’t, you should! And tag me in your post, so that I can read your answers!

See you soon!

This time, I’m here with another bookish tag! It’s called “3 days, 3 quotes” tag. I think I don’t have to explain what this is about since the name already says the point of the tag.

Harry Potter - Handwritten Dumbledore Quote - It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live:
I found this on Pinterest.

The quote I chose for Day 1 was obviously written by J.K. Rowling. It’s from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and it’s one of the most beautiful quotes of the series. It has such a deep meaning and I love it.

Captain America Civil War Book Tag!

Hello, bookworms! Happy Monday!

Let’s start this week with a cool book tag! I was tagged by Cristina, from @MyTinyObsessions, to answer the Captain America Civil War book tag! Thank you, Cristina! The creator of this tag is Jennifer from @WonderlandReview.

I have watched the movie and it was SO FREAKING COOL! I LOVED EVERYTHING! It was a delightful surprise to see Spider-Man. I mean, of course I knew he would be there, but I really liked the actor, Tom Holland. He was great!

I’m excited to answer this, so let’s do it!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you. – Once again, thank you, Cristina!
  • Tag anyone and everyone you want!

Disclaimer: Jennifer’s pretty sure about the actual teams for this movie but she could be wrong! You never know! Also, she’s very much Team Cap so this might be a little biased.


Team Captain America:

Captain America: Name a character who always does the right thing. (If you aren’t team Cap I guess you can change this to ‘a character who always thinks he does the right thing’).

Ok, I do like Tony Stark. Also, I don’t read comic books, so I don’t know much about these characters, only what I see in the movies, but I think I’m Team Cap. I do understand Tony’s decision in Civil War, but honestly, they can’t control what they do when they fight, right? The government shouldn’t tear them apart because of that. I mean, it’s not their fault. I guess.

Anyway, I think Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games trilogy) does the right thing, or at least, she tries. She’s amazing and one of my favorite characters ever.


Falcon: A loyal character.

I really like Falcon. Well, at least, in the movies. That’s why I want to read comic books! I want to know more about these characters! They are so fascinating!


Ron Weasleyyyyyyyyyyyy (Harry Potter series)!!!! He loves Harry so much and he would do anything for his best friend!



Hawkeye: A character that is extremely good at something very specific (Like Hawkeye with his bow).

Why are there so many people that see Hawkeye is useless? Are you mad? He is brilliant! By the way, I liked that moment when he introduced himself to Black Panther. Amazing.

arrow hawkeye antman

I’m not going to say Katniss again, but Finnick Odair (also from The Hunger Games trilogy) is pretty good when he fights with his trident.



Ant-Man: A character that’s just happy to tag along.

I haven’t watched the Ant-Man movie, by the way. Howver, from what I saw in Civil War, he is wonderful!

I mean, for those who have watch Civil War- this scene:

Maybe Neville Longbottom (Harry Potter series)? I think he gets pretty excited when people trust in him and he just likes to help, you know?

neville longbottom matthew lewis harry potter and the deathly hallows harry potter and the deathly hallows part 2 dh2


Agent 13: A character you’re super nervous about (not going to say why, but I have my reasons).

She doesn’t deserve the hat she is getting just because she kissed Captain America. She is so badass in her own her and all people care about is that she is ruining your ship (Cap+Bucky)? Really? This fierce can fight and she is very smart. Deal with it.


Anyway, I’m nervous about what is going to happen to Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy) in A Court of Mist and Fury. I love her and I don’t want her to suffer anymore, but I have read some spoilers (of course) and she is going to suffer a little bit more and I’m just… Just leave my baby alone! However, I know she is strong and fierce and I know she will fight harder and I can’t wait to see her being badass again.

This fanart looks amazing!


Winter Soldier: A character with really great positive character growth.

Bucky doesn’t deserve what he suffers in Civil War. While I was watching the movie, all I wanted to do was hug him and tell he will be fine. My poor cinnamon roll, too good for this world, too pure!

I have said this in other tags and I’m going to repeat: Darrow from Red Rising trilogy. I only read the first book, but damn. THE CARACTHER DEVELOPMENT IS ASTONISHING!


If you have read Red Rising, you will understand this fanart, of course.


Scarlet Witch: A character that started out on the wrong side but ended up joining the team.

I haven’t watched The Avenger: Age of Ultron either, so I don’t know much about Scarlet Witch. Anyway, I really liked her in Civil War. It made me sad when she felt bad for what she did in the beggining of the movie.

Can I do the opposite? I can’t remember who started on the wrong side, but ended being good… I probably have read this kind of characters, but I can’t remember right now. So, I choose someone who I thought was good, but he’s actually bad: Sebastian, from The Mortal Instruments series. He’s pure evil, even worse than his father, I guess (I have only read the first 3 books, by the way!).

Many fanarts were too spoilery, so… That’s the only one I liked that didn’t have spoilers.


Bonus: Winter Soldier & Captain America: Two characters that have been friends for a long time.

Yesssssss! I love their friendship, you have no idea! They are so loyal to each other!

captain america civil war steve rogers bucky barnes captainamericaedit

Once again, The Mortal Instruments series! Clary and Simon have been friends since they were kids! They had some trouble in the first 3 books (and I’m sure they will have more in the other 3 books), but they help each other out and they love each other a lot.


Team Iron Man:

Spider Man is not here, by the way.

Iron Man: A character that doesn’t seem to learn from their mistakes (*Fine. If you’re team Iron Man you can change this question to, ‘a character willing to stand up to his friends for what he believes in’).

I don’t think Iron Man committed mistakes (I’m talking about Civil War, not Iron Man as character because I’ve never read the comic books) because, after all, he was defending what he thought was right and I actually understand his point of view, of course.

Peter from the Divergent trilogy. Bro, why can’t you understand that you can’t mess with Tris or Four, or both of them together? Hahahah.

By the way,I actually like the movie version of Peter. I think that’s pretty much the only good thing of these movies.

miles teller divergent insurgent tris prior tobias eaton


War Machine: A character that’s always showing off his “big guns.”

All I know about War Machine is what I saw in Civil War. Ops.

RHYSAND (A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy)! He is such a show-off, but I love him so much!


Amy from Gone Girl. That’s a whole new level of revenge! The things she did to punish her husband… Damn…
I haven’t watched the movie, tho.

Vision: A character you are unsure about.

Damn it, I should have watched Age of Ultron already, so that I could know more about Vision! But I think he is a very interesting character!
I really don’t understand why evryone loves Étienne St.Clair from Anna and the French Kiss. Yes, it’s cool to have a French name. It’s cool to have British accent, even though he is American. BUT HE IS A CHEATER and he didn’t do a damn thing to help Anna when everyone was literally bullying her! He’s not a bad guy, of course not. However, he’s not the cute kitten everyone seems to love.

Spider-Man: A character you were afraid just wasn’t going to fit in.

YESSSSSSSSSSS, SPIDEY!!!!! HE SLAYED THAT MOVIE, TOO!!!! I swear to God that Tom Holland was freaking fantastic! OMG *swoon*. Also, every single line was just perfect. Damn, so good!
DAMN GOOD!!!!
Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I really loved Charlie, my poor sweet boy. I was so mad that people couldn’t really see him (well, he’s a wallflower, that’s point). I mean, he is such a good guy and he went through a lot and I was afraid that he wouldn’t fit in high school. My first year as a high school was pretty normal because in Portugal we don’t have that kind of environment like in USA, but I do know that in US it must be hard. I’m glad that Charlie eventually met amazing people that could understand him and help him.
Can I just say that everyone in the book-to-movie adaptation did such a phenomenal job? Especially Logan Lerman. God, I love him! **

Pepper Potts (pretty sure she isn’t in this movie, but whatever): A character who uses their intelligence.
That’s not really a spoiler since we don’t even see her in the trailers, but she isn’t in this movie.
HERMIONE JEAN GRANGER (Harry Potter series), OF COURSE!!!! WHO ELSE???

Bonus- Captain America vs. Iron Man: You pick Name two characters that started off as friends and are now enemies or name two characters that are on opposing sides that you want to work together.

I choose the second option: Celia and Marco from The Night Circus. They eventually worked together… Sort of. If you haven’t read it, now you have to read to find out why I said that 😉

The Bookish Scenarios Tag

Hello, bookworms! I hope you are having a lovely Friday!
Today I bring you another book tag, of course! This time, I was tagged (a long time ago) by Cåtia @thegirlwhoreadtoomuch to asnwer the bookish scenarios tag!! Thank you so much, Cåtia!

yay school what college minions


1st scenario: You have to get rid of all your books and you can only keep one from each of these genres – contemporary, fantasy, non-fiction and one other genre of your choosing. What books do you keep?

WHAAAAAAAAAAAT? WHY WHOULD I DO THAT?
Anyway, this is just an hypothetical situation, so…

Contemporary: The Perks of Being a Wallflower can’t be considered as a contemporary novel because it’s set during the 90s, right? Well, I don’t read many contemporary books… Maybe The Fault in Our Stars, then.

The 1st Portuguese edition of TFIOS.

Fantasy– Ok, let me keep theHarry Potter series. Let’s pretend that all the seven books are in one book ahahahah.

Non-fictionThe Diary of a Young Girl, by Anne Frank. I have no doubts in this one. Anne Frank was and still is a very special girl.

O DiĂĄrio de Anne Frank
One of the Portuguese editions.

I choose Science Fiction: Many people don’t know this, but dystopian books belong to the Sci-Fi genre, so… The Hunger Games!


2nd scenario: You’re at the bookstore and you hear a teenager telling their mom they don’t like to read, but their mom insists they pick something. You walk over and recommend a book you think is great for people who aren’t big on reading – what book is it?

HARRY POTTER IS THE BEST ANSWER FOR THIS!

 

 


3rd scenario: You’re not feeling yourself and need a pick me up. Which book do you read to put yourself in a great mood?

I think The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) would be a good choice! I actually need to read it again sometime soon!

Portuguese movie tie-in edition.

4th scenario: You go back in time for a day to your child-hood years. What book would you most likely have caught yourself reading?

In Portugal, they are known as Anita’s books! Now, they changed it too Martine… What the hell?

 

Literal Translation: Anita in the Country of Fairy Tales. I think it would sound better as Anita in the Land of Fairy Tales.

5th scenario: Your friend surprises you with a 4 day trip and you have 1 hour to pack. Which book do you bring to read on the way?

Can we talk about books we haven’t read yet? If so, I would choose The Final Empire, by Brandon Sanderson. It has, 6024 pages (I’m talking about the Portuguese edition) and it’s Fantasy, which is one of my favorite genres, so it could be a good choice for this scenario!

By the way, here’s the Portuguese edition, which is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

 


6th scenario: Your house has been robbed! Don’t worry – everyone is safe, but your bookshelf has been raided. What’s the book you really hope is safe?

I. can’t. CHOOSE. HELL. NO.

jennifer lawrence hell no oh hell no
God bless you, Jennifer!

7th scenario: Your friend borrows a book and returns it in awful condition. Do you a) Just pretend you haven’t noticed b) Ask them to repurchase it or c) Secretly do the same to something of theirs?

Option B, of course! You know why? Here’s this gif as an answer:

Damn, right!


I tag….  Everyone! Well, if you want to do this, of course!

I’ll come back later for another post. This time, it’s a weekly meme post that I haven’t done since ages ago.

See you soon!!!

A CHARACTER APPEARANCE THAT YOU MISREAD OR IMAGINED DIFFERENTLY.

Hmmmm… Rhysand, from A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy, by Sarah J. Maas.
Ok, let me explain this… It seems that Rhysand, a High Fae, in human years, would be in his twenties. But, for me, the perfect Rhysand is Benedict Cumberbatch! There, I said it! I just love Benedict and when Feyre described Rhysand, I immediatly thought that Ben would be amazing as Rhysand! People say he looks like an alien, but I don’t care about the haters and I think Benedict Cumberbatch is a very handsome man. Deal with it.

By the way, I do love fanart of Rhysand! People are so talented, omg!

Benedict Cumberbatch.:
C’mon!!!! HE IS FREAKING AWESOME! AND HANDSOM! A MASTERPIECE! HE IS MY RHYSAND, END OF STORY! PERIOD! I DON’T CARE!

 

Never trust a duck:
I LOVE THIS FANART! *heart eyes*

 


A CHARACTER NAME THAT YOU’VE BEEN PRONOUNCING WRONG:

Pfff, so many! For example, I’m sure I don’t know how to pronounce Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses).

Some people have already read the sequel of ACOTAR, A Court of Mist and Fury, and everyone is saying that ACOMAF is even better than the first book! I mean, the first book was fantastic ( I gave it 5/5 stars). So, am I going to die once I read ACOMAF? Holy crap!

Never trust a duck:
OMG! CAN I BE THIS GOOD? FEYRE LOOKS AMAZING! I applaud the artist!

AN OVERUSED TROPE THAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE:

If they are well done: love triangles!

I also love hate-to-love stories! Ahahhahah, they are fascinating, c’mon!


A CLICHÉ CHARACTER TYPE THAT YOU LIKE BETTER ON SCREEN THAN READING ABOUT:

Maybe the sassy characters? I love them when I read them, but damn… It’s so good to see that on screen!

sassy snap


A WORD/PHRASE YOU LEARNED BECAUSE OF ITS USE IN A BOOK:

I have no idea. I mean, “may the odds be ever in you favor” is not, like, an official phrase, but I do say it a lot!


HAVE YOU EVER NOT READ OR COMPLETED A REQUIRED READING BOOK FOR SCHOOL?

Hahahahahha! For highschool, I have always finished the books I had to read. However, this year, in college… There are some books I didn’t have time to finish, but I really want to read them anyway! For example, I haven’t finished Utopia, by Thomas More, and I didn’t even start The Island of Doctor Moreau, by H.G. Wells. Also, I really want to read Hard Times, by Charles Dickens.

Oh, Amy Pond… THE FEELS!

HAVE YOU EVER (OR WANTED TO) SKIPPED A CHAPTER FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF A CHARACTER YOU WEREN’T INTERESTED IN?

No, I don’t think so.


HAVE YOU EVER CANCELLED SOCIAL PLANS TO READ A BOOK?

No. but it’s not like I have many social plans. *crying a river*

cry me a river justin timberlake
OMG! THIS IS SO FUNNY!

Ok, that’s it for now, I guess! Maybe I’m going to post another book tag later, but I’m not sure. See you soon!!!

The Book Sacrifice Tag

Ok, so, I only have book tags to answer and I love book tags! There are so many that are so creative! I have seen this one many times on Internet and I’m glad @MyTinyObsessions tagges me to answer The Book Sacrifice Tag! Thank you, Cristina

So, here we go!


  1. An over-hyped book- Situation: You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?

    I tried to post a gif that wasn’t really disgusting, even though I LVOE THE WALKING DEAD! But I don’t know if you like this kind of thing, so I posted this gif that is actually not that bad… I guess.

    Ok, everyone says that The Tiger’s Curse, by Colleen Houck, is amazing! I mean, just go to Goodreads and you will see that there are people that give it 4 and 5 stars! However, I’m glad there are still some people that have some sense and gave it 1 or 2 stars…. Seriously, I don’t understand how people love this book… I really tried not to talk badly about a book that maybe you love and I do understand if you love it, I mean, it’s what you love and it’s none of my business… But I really didn’t like it and I think its writing is poor and the plot is boring.

    The cover is so pretty! But the story and the characters… not so much.

     

  2. A sequel- Situation: torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?

    Hmmm…. I have no idea… Oh, wait, can I say Breaking Dawn, by Stephenie Meyer, even though I didn’t read the other books? Yeah, let’s keep that one here. I really didn’t like it.

  3. A classic- Situation: You’re in English class and your professor raves about a Classic that “transcends time”. If given the opportunity to travel back in time, which Classic would you try to stop from ever publishing?

    Oh, my… Here in Portugal, of course we have to talk about Portuguese classics, but some of them are really boring… Like the one about the Maias family! Os Maias (Portuguese title), by Eça de QueirĂłs, has too many details and the descriptions are, well… Detailed. Too much, actually. I’m not saying Eça is a bad writer. After all, I do recognise his talent and, I mean, he is one of the greatest writers that my country has ever had! But, oh, God… This book….

  4. A least favourite book- Situation: apparently global warming = suddenly frozen wasteland. Your only hope of survival for warmth is to burn a book. Which book will you not regret lighting? 

    You mean, a book that I actually like, but not as much as other books? Ok, maybe The Maze Runner. I really enjoyed the first two books, but I haven’t read the third one. Anyway, despite the fact that I enjoyed it, I wouldn’t mind burn it to keep me warm. Althought…. I mean… Burning a book??? Poor thing…

    Portuguese edition.

     

 

So, that’s it! Now, let’s see who I tag:

Sara @FreadomLibrary

@TrustintheWords

@TravellingThroughPages

Mariana @fireheartbooks

I think I’m going to post another book tag today! See you soon!
