The Ultimate Book Tag

booktag_ultimate

Hello. Welcome back to yet another book tag. This time, it’s the Ultimate Book Tag and I was tagged by Daniela @books-to-get-lost-in. Thank you so much for the tag!

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?

Nop. Never did. I remember being little and reading throughout the huge car rides. When I got older, sleep became more important.

2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?

Tahereh Mafi. Hands down, her style is completely unique and I love it.

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

Ok, so I’m gonna say Harry Potter because:

  • friendship
  • values
  • believing in yourself

with that said, I should point out that the only reason I even read Harry Potter was because I feel in love with reading BECAUSE of Twilight.

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books)?

Nop, I carry my book on my backpack. Yes, I’m 31 yo and I still carry a backpack…

5. Do you smell your books?

Sure do! I avoid doing it in public, but sometimes I can’t help it.

6. Books with or without little illustrations.

It really depends on the kind of book, right?

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?

Twilight. I still enjoy it though.

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

Not really…

9. What is the tinniest book on your shelf?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with 42 pages, by J.K. Rowling.

10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo with 1231 pages.

11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

No, I would not be good at it, at all!

12. When did you get into reading?

I’ve always read, but more since the beginning of last year, and hard core from around 7/8 months ago.

13. What is your favourite classic book?

I haven’t read that many classics, so I’m gonna go for Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen.

14. In school what was your best subject?

Math and Biology. Anything of the sciences, really.

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated, what would you do?

It depends on who’s giving the present, right? I probably would keep it.

16. (No clue what happened to this question but apparently it disappeared)

17. What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while blogging?

I procrastinate a LOT.

18. What is your favorite word?

Procrastination! 😛

19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?

According to this very amazing graph, I’m a Nerd.

20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?

Fairies, I’m very into high Fae Princes lately…

21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Shapeshifters, because of Tessa Gray and Lysandra!

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

Werewolves.

23. Zombies or Vampires? Why?

Vampires, I don’t really get the whole zombie thing.

24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

I’m cool with either, as long as it’s well done. But maybe forbidden love has more angst, so, that!

25. And finally: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

Really depends on my mood. But usually, action-packed with a few hot and steamy scenes 🙂 .

Shadowhunters First Trailer

Halleluja people! Finally!!! After months of random behind the scenes photos, a few promos and a lot of teasing, Buzzfeed  revealed yesterday the first trailer for the new Shadowhunters series at ABC Family.

By the way, thank you Cátia, best thing ever to wake up at 4 a.m. and having this on my twitter notifications 😀 .

I like it! I think it looks cool!!! Sure, a few things will be different, Jocelyn sending Clary through a portal (?!) is a bit iffy, but hey, I can live with that.

The cast all looks great, and Dom sounds so Jace-like (yay!). My only tiny problem is with Kat and her Clary… I’m still not sure about her acting and this trailer did nothing to calm my nerves about that. Matthew Daddario and Emeraude though, look perfect as the Lightwoods. And Harry as Magnus too 😀 !

Did they make the seraph blades retractable or whatever? Isn’t that a bit weird?

I can’t wait for this show 😀 ! I know most of the cast (or all) has wrapped, so I think that the show is now all in post-production. January can’t come fast enough.

Lady Midnight Cover Reveal

coverreveal

The cover for the first book the The Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare, Lady Midnight, was unveiled yesterday at New York Comic Con. Look at it!!!

First of all, this cover looks freaking amazing and it might just be my favorite of all the Shadowhunters covers until now. Then it looks like a mix between the old and new designs for the covers. Emma looks fantastic. So does Cortana in her hands. And her ivory/vintage dress… Cassie says Emma likes vintage clothes! How cool is that?

I can’t wait for this one 😀
