The Greek God Book Tag!

Thank you soo much too Zuky @ Bookbum for tagging me in the Greek Gods Book Tag! She actually made this tag HERSELF (omg, how cool is that?), and it’s really fun. I am a big fan of Greek myths, so this tag is just my thing.

Rules:

  • Pingback to Zuky @ Bookbum (so she could see your post) 
  • You could use Zuky’s graphics, but you don’t have too. 
  • Tag as many people as you want, but please, share the love 

ZEUS: KING OF THE GODS – YOUR FAVORITE BOOK

Does a series count?? If it does Harry Potter for the win. But if it does not, I would say The Weight of Feathers by Annie-Marie McLemore is one my new favorites.

 HERA: QUEEN OF THE GODS – A BADASS FEMALE CHARACTER

I actually have a whole list, but my most favorite is Annabeth Chase from The Lightning Thief series. She’s the daughter of the Greek goddess, Athena.

JANUS: GOD OF BEGINNINGS – YOUR FAVORITE DEBUT(S) 

I never thought I’d be so happy to see that (S)! 2017 has been such a good year for debuts (in my opinion). I almost loves all the debut books I read. Some of my favorites are: Caraval by Stephanie Garber (review here), AND The Weight of Feathers by Annie-Marie McLemore, (tbh, I love this book way too much)

ATHENA: GODDESS OF WISDOM – YOUR FAVORITE NON-FICTION BOOK

Portrait Revolution by Julia L. Kay. I love drawing, and painting, and this book brought on many ways to view a picture.

APHRODITE: GODDESS OF LOVE – A BOOK YOU ADORE AND RECOMMEND EVERYONE READ (OTHER THAN YOUR FAVORITE BOOK!)

To All The Boys I Loved Before  by Jenny Han.  It’s a cute book about a girl in love, and has such a great romance.

HADES: GOD OF THE UNDERWORLD – AN EVIL BOOK YOU WISH DIDN’T EXIST

Beastly by Alex Flinn was a TERRIBLE BOOK! I don’t like using the term “hate” too often, but THIS BOOK DESERVED IT.  I hated almost everything about it, especially the main character.

POSEIDON: GOD OF THE SEA & EARTHQUAKES – A BEAUTIFUL & GROUND-BREAKING BOOK

Caraval for the win! I feel like I’m repeating books, over, and over again, but this was such an awesome book.

APOLLO: GOD OF THE ARTS – A BEAUTIFUL BOOK COVER 

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton.  This was a cover-buy for me, because of the color scheme.  I can’t resist gold, and blue!

24934065

HYPNOS: GOD OF SLEEP – A BOOK SO BORING YOU ALMOST FELL ASLEEP

The Graces by Laura Eve. When I received the ARC for this book I screamed, but then I started reading the book, and I GOT SOOO BORED! I think I yawned about 50 times during the book.

HERMES: MESSENGER OF THE GODS – A BOOK YOU SPED THROUGH

Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick was a book I finished in one sitting! I loved it sooo much, but sadly the second book wasn’t that great.

The Sunshine Blogger Award

I have been tagged by the wonderful May @ Forever and Everly to the Sunshine Blogger Award! Thanks Mango Queen, your so sweet (hahaha) for tagging me. Everyone follow her, and check out her post here.

Rules

  • Thank the person/persons that nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions your nominator has given you.
  • Nominate 11 other people and give them 11 new questions to answer.
  • List the rules and display the award.

Capture

  • If you could be an author, who would you be?

V.E Schwab because she wrote the wonderful A Darker Shade of Magic series. Also, it would be awesome to have her writing skill.

  • What book(s) do you wish you wrote?

Is HOW ABOUT EVERYTHING an answer? If not, then the Harry Potter series, and ADSOM!

  • How fast of a reader are you?

I’m pretty fast if I put all my effort, and time in it. However, I can read about 300 pages a whole day.

  • Which book character would you totally want to meet, but fear might kill you?

Draco Malfoy because he’s really cute a Slytherin, and might spell me to death if I insult him.

  • What books have you cried over (if any)?

Not any recently, but I remember crying a lot after reading the last book of Harry Potter, because THE SERIES WAS OFFICIALLY OVER! But then there was the eight book that saved me from total destruction.

  • What do you do besides reading?

Soo much. I do DIY’s (and fail at them) watch k-drama, and anime, study while grumbling about how much school sucks  hang out with friends, and try to do normal people stuff.

  • How would you react if all the books suddenly disappeared from the world?

I would be shocked, and then be really quiet/trying not to seem depressed. And maybe yell at the nearest person about why books are important (except for my mom, do not mess with MamaNerd). And maybe start a riot.

  • Book-to-movie adaptions: Like or hate?

Oh, this is hard. I guess I would be neutral about this, because Narnia was awesome, but City of Bones was not.

  • What book have you been dying to read, but haven’t gotten the chance to?

By Your Side by Kasie West (I have a feeling that will change thanks to my school book fair) Kings Cage by Victoria Aveyard, A Conjuring of Light (I. NEED. NOW.)

  • Would you rather get paid to read books, review books, or blog about books?

I wouldn’t mind it.

  • WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT ONE OF YOU FAVORITE AUTHORS IS STANDING ACROSS THE STREET FROM YOU WHAT DO YOU DO???

Discreetly walk next to them, ask for an autograph, and take a picture, and convince them to give me an ARC of their book.

how about you answer some of these questions? What do you think of my answers? Do you agree or disagree? Don’t you think May is such an awesome blogger? (yes, yes you do)

This or That Book Tag!

It’s been sooo long since I did a tag! Today, I’m going to do the This or That Book Tag, which I was tagged by Nikki @ The Night Is Dark And Full of Book (Game of Thrones reference). Thanks for tagging me in this, and sorry I didn’t do it sooner (for some wordpress reminded me right now, even though you posted it in the summer 😦 )

1. Reading on The Couch or The Bed?

Bed for the automatic win. I prefer reading on the bed than the couch because I can fall asleep right away.

2. Female or Male Character?

I would choose female character because I think it’s far more easier to relate, and connect with. With a male character, I don’t get all the complicated friendship stuff (yes, I find guy friendships more complicated than girls). I don’t mind reading in a male P.O.V though.

3. Sweet or Salty Snacks While Reading?

I don’t really eat food while reading, but if I had too choose I would say sweet. If I had to be more specific, oranges.

4. Trilogies or quartets?

How about none? I don’t like series because A) I might have really expectations for one of the books, but it fails to live up to them and B) they take really long to finish… But if I had to choose, trilogies. Just like Nikki, the less books the better.

5. First person or third person P.O.V?

First person for sure! It feels like I’m relieving the events of the book, and gives me a sense of the readers feel. Which essentially makes me feel closer to the narrator.

6. Reading in the night or morning?

This is actually a tough one. I like reading in both times, and it doesn’t make a difference. But if I really had to choose one, I’d say in the night.

7. Libraries or Bookstores?

Libraries for sure, because for the obvious reasons. It’s free, and usually gives me enough time to finish a book. Some people say that books from libraries are dirty, and disgusting. I disagree because we bibliophiles, would never treat a book like that. And if the book is dirty thelibrary usually replaces it with a better copy.

8. Books that make you laugh or cry?

Laughing for sure. Crying for a book is really depressing, and would leave me with a book hangover.

9. Black or White Cover Books?

White covers because they always look elegant to me. Although, it doesn’t really matter too me.

10. Character or Plot-Driven

Plot driven for sure because a boring storyline, but really good characters does not appeal to me. Who would want to read something with no plot line? I really think that the plot is really important to a story, because it makes the story, a story.

Sooo let’s talk! What do you think of this award? Why don’t you answer some of the questions? Do you think you are a unique blogger/person?

I’m Goodreads Book Tag // Get To Know My Reading Status 

I haven’t done a book tag in such a long time, so when Liesje @ A Thousand Lives tagged me to do the Goodreass Tag, I was more than happy to participate ( so thanks Liesje!).

My last read was As Red As Blood a translated book originally written by a German author called Salla Simuka. It was a great book providing a lot of suspense, and had a dark mood.


I’m currently finishing up a reread of All The Bright Places by Jenifer Niven

According to Goodreads I marked Roseblood by A.G Howard as my to-read. This was hyped a lot in the past few moths, and I can’t wait to get my own copy!
What book do you plan to read next?

I am planning to read Life of Pi by Yann Martel. I haven’t watched the movie, but I heard great things about this book. I really have high hopes!

Yes I do! I have thought of changing it, but stars were the easiest.


This is my second time doing one, and I’m doing about 100 books. I can’t really update it a lot because computer promblems. I am up to like 23 books.


Uh no. I don’t do those because my list will be HUGE!
What book do you plan on buying next?

I’m trying not to waste waste a lot of money on books, but I know for sure I’m getting Caraval for sure. This was also hyped a lot during these past few months.

This is really tough because I have quite a few. I like a lot of authors who write hardcore fantasy, like V.E Schwab, J.K Rowling, Reene Ahdieh (sorry if I spelled her name wrong). I also like sweet contemporary authors like Kasie West, Jennifer E. Smith, Jeniffer Niven.

befunky-design
I have, but I’m not that active in it, except for maybe the Beat The Backlist challenge, and my book club. Yeah, now I see why I have no friends.


Fourteen, but with this upcoming months,  I know that it will increase.

Liebster Award

lol

Thank you to the two wonderful, awesome people who nominated me ( Flawless Reads, and Audreywriteabroad) for the Liebster Award! I did one 2 months ago, but things change. Including myself (although not much). Here are the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer the questions provided by the person who nominated you
  • Tag someone.

Audery from audreywritedabroad questions

Has your opinion of blogging changed since you started your blog? 

Ehhhh. Not really, okay maybe a little bit. I always imagined blogging as a little pass-timer, and I thought no one was really going to view my blog at all. That definitely changed (after all I have 145 followers), but it still is exactly how I imagined it, fun!

What posts was the hardest to write/publish 

The first ever posts I ever wrote, which was called A Little Intro. I was really new to blogging, and no idea how to post my introduction to the book community. After 500 drafts, I decided just to sound like myself, and I think it worked out fine.
