The Summer Book Tag

Hey guys! Time for another book tag, and I saw this one in Marta’s Blog, The Book Mermaid, and thought “why not?”. So today I’m doing this version of The Summer Book Tag.


The cover for The Summer Before Forever by Melissa Chambers is the definition of summery.


This was just too easy… Illuminae… eheh


My edition of Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell is very yellow, eheh.


I’m picking A Fine Mess by Kelly Siskind because I actually read part of it while sitting on the beach.


What does “run to the ice cream man” means? I have no clue, so I’m sharing an action book I really loved and I’m excited for the sequel, Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh.


Of course Fallen Heir ended on a cliffhanger, but it was painful and bad, and I hope it’s fixed on the first page of the last book.


Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley made me happy in general. This is a wonderful book, and I wish more people read it.


I’m choosing this cover because I can actually see the sun in it. I’m simple like that. To Professor, with Love by Linda Kage


I’m so excited to have gotten an ARC of Temporary by Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry, and I can’t wait to get time to get to it.

I Tag:

Everyone! Have fun and enjoy this tag.

Totally Didn’t Book Tag (2)

This was one of the first book tag I did, over 2 years ago, you can check out that post HERE, but I thought it was time to have another run at it. This tag was originally created by ReadLikeWildFire, and you can find her original video here.

1. Totally didn’t need to have a sequel/sequels


I really liked The Two-Night One-Night Stand by Ryan Ringbloom, but I thought that The Two-Night One-Night Wedding was totally unnecessary and ir didn’t live up to the first book.

2. Totally didn’t need to have more than one point of view

The Baller: A Down and Dirty Football Novel

Hmmm, so, I think The Baller by Vi Keeland should definitly have the 2 main POVs, what it shouldn’t have was that stupid third POV, by a character that has no place voicing anything…

3. Totally didn’t need to change cover art through the middle of a series


Now… I actually like the new covers for The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski, but they changed after I got my first book of the series, and now they won’t match! 😥

4. Totally didn’t need a love triangle


Yeah, I’m gonna say the whole DIMILY series by Estelle Maskame didn’t need all the triangles and cheating and things that went on during the 3 books… especially in the first couple of them. I still really like this series, and I recommend it, but just be aware that it takes 2 books for Eden and Tyler to sort their shit out.

5. Totally didn’t need this book to be included in this series

I really liked the Kingston Ale House series, but the 4th book, Worth the Wait, unfortunately wasn’t worth the wait for me, and I had so many issues with it.

6. Totally didn’t need a cliffhanger

Maybe I should have actually informed myself on this series before starting it, but I had no clue that this was a duology, also, I had no freaking clue that The Player by K. Bromberg would end in a cliffhanger!!! I need to read the second book soon.

7. Totally didn’t need to have just one point of view

So… I really like when a book is told only through the guys’s POV, I usually love it, but it didn’t work out well in Undeclared (Burnham College #2) by Julianna Keyes. Something was definitly missing in this book.

8. Totally didn’t need that much hype

You know those books with only good reviews that you just don’t get? Yeah… South of Sunshine by Dana Elmendorf is one of those cases for me.

9. Totally didn’t need a relative book reference
(Eg, For example: Hunger Games fan would love Divergent)

I’m drawing a blank here…

10. Totally didn’t deserve my time


How my opinion on this matter changed… take a look at any of the titles above, and then get away from them as fast as you can!

I will tag EVERYONE!!!

Chocolate Book Tag

Hey guys. So, I like chocolate just fine, but I wouldn’t say I’m crazy about it. I sometimes feel like I need it, but I’m perfectly fine just eating a couple of small squares 😉 . Either way, I was tagged by Daniela @My Name is Daniela and Little Great Reads to do this tag, so thank you girls.

Without further ado, let’s jump into it.

Dark Chocolate: A book with a dark theme/content

I absolutely loved Addicted to You by Krista and Becca Ritchie, but as you can predict by the title, this book deals with addiction, and it’s full of dark themes throughout the whole book, and it doesn’t even have a happy HAPPY ending 😦 . I still loved it though.

White Chocolate: A light-hearted/humorous read

Nothing is more humorous than Blake Riley!

Milk Chocolate: A book with a lot of hype that you are dying to read

I’m going with The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli, because I loved her first book, and I’m dying to read this one as well, and I’ve heard nothing but good things.

A Wafer-Free KitKat: A book that surprised you lately

I wasn’t expecting to enjoy The Butterfly Project by Emma Scott as much as I did. But I loved it.

Chocolate With a Caramel Centre: A book that makes you feel gooey on the inside

THIS ONE! Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde.

Snickers: A book you are going nuts about

I read Trust by Kylie Scott, and I still have this book stuck on my head. I loved it so much. Yeah, it wasn’t perfect, but I just loved the hell out of it, you know?

Hot Chocolate with Whipped Cream and Marshmallows: A comfort read that you turn to again and again

I’m going with Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, because it’s one of my faves and I want to re-read it this year.

Box of Chocolates: A series that has something for everyone

I’m currently reading my 5th book on the Forbidden Men series, but so far, each book was different, and had elements that would please different kinds of romance readers. I’m loving going through this one.

Mid-Year Freak Out Tag (2017 Edition)

Hey guys! We’re halfway through the year, which means it’s time for the Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag again, eheh! Check here the previous editions, 2015 and 2016.


This one is hard this year, but I think Making Faces by Amy Harmon has definitly won my heart. This book was gorgeous and amazing, and I just sobbed like a baby, and stayed up until 5 a.m. to finish it, while crying my eyes out.


A sequel that truly took me by surprise was What I Need by J. Daniels. I really liked the whole series, but this book was just amazeballs. I couldn’t get enough of it.


Oh boy, so many. But I truly want to get to When It’s Real by Erin Watt soon, because I loved The Royals, and I need to read more of this collaboration.


No many! Fallen Heir by Erin Watt, Brooklynaire (Brooklyn Bruisers, #4) by Sarina Bowen Bountiful (True North, #4) by Sarina Bowen, WAGs #3 by Sarina and Elle Kennedy, Twisted Twosome by Meghan Quinn, The Chase by Elle Kennedy, LEGS by Kelly Siskind, …


I had high hopes for Undeclared (Burnham College #2) by Julianna Keyes, because I had loved the first book so much. Unfortunately, this book was just not what I expected and it didn’t work for me.


One of my biggest surprises this year so far was Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley, I absolutely loved this book, and I wasn’t quite expecting to love it as much as I did. You should all grab a copy of it, and start reading it today!



Hmmm. Jen Wilde? Cath Crowley? Krista and Becca Ritchie? Amy Harmon? … so many…


Again, so many, especially because I read so many romances, eheh. Either way, I think I’m going with Blake Riley, from Good Boy, because this guy is just amazing, almost too much. And so darn hilarious.


I still haven’t finished Trust by Kylie Scott, but I’m going with Edie for my new favorite character. This girl is all kinds of awesome. She’s insecure, and snarky and fun, and so herself. I love her.


Nothing made me cry quite like Making Faces by Amy Harmon. I never cried so much while reading a book.


Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde made me beyond happy. This book was AMAZING! Everyone should read it now!


Hmmm, I think I only saw one book to film adaptation this year, and it was Everything, Everything, and I do think the movie was very well achieved.


I’m skipping this one. I have to admit that I’ve been a bit down about blogging. I haven’t been posting as much, and I haven’t done a discussion in ages…


Definitely Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. This cover is GORGEOUS!



I want to read Nimona by Noelle Stevenson pretty soon. I have it on my night stand taunting me. I also really want to read With Every Heartbeat (Forbidden Men #4) by Linda Kage, because I’ve been loving this series, and I really need more of it. Another book on my future TBR is Full Tilt (Full Tilt #1) by Emma Scott, because I loved one other book by this author, and I’ve heard good things about this one.

I tag EVERYONE who wants to do this tag, because I need to know how you are all doing so far this reading year 🙂 .

The GoodReads Book Tag

I’m not sure I’ve ever done this tag before, but I was tagged by Katlyn @Everything Under the Sun and I thought it was fun to do it now.

Anything But Books Tag

Hey guys, I’m doing another TAG this week, and this time Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much tagged to do the Anything But Books Tag, and I thought it was pretty cool. So obviously I’m doing it… here we go 🙂 .

1. Name a cartoon that you love.

When I was younger, I had a few shows that I loved, as in, I was totally obsessed with! As Sailor Moon, X-MenRurouni KenshinAce wo Nerae!Attacker You!, …

2. What is your favorite song right now?

Oh, this is such a hard question. Maybe Scars To Your Beautiful by  Alessia Cara, still, because this song just makes me so happy and I love it so much.

3. What could you do for hours that isn’t reading?

Sleeping?! Eheh. Does sleeping count? No? Damn. I guess I could easily watch movies or series for hours if I’m in the right mood. But truth be told, I haven’t been in the right mood for that for quite some time now.

4. What is something you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?

Ahhh, I’m not sure I could actually surprise anyone with my hobbies, because I think about all of them. But well, in case you’re new and you don’t know me that well, I’m gonna say 3 things I love and I wish I had time to do more of: BAKING, KNITTING and SEWING.

5. What is your favorite unnecessarily specific thing to learn about?

Is anything truly unnecessary to learn? I don’t think so. I can tell you that I love cooking shows and home remodel shows. But most of all, I kind of dig to learn about politics of late.

6. What is something unusual that you know how to do?

Probably the thing where I actually extract genetic material from bones and teeth? That’s a bit unusual, right?

7. Name something you made in the last year and show us if you can.

I honestly don’t feel like I did that much this past year. On a personal note, I found 2 jobs and I’m determined to finish my PhD as soon as possible. But that doesn’t feel big enough. So, I’m going to stamp here a big accomplishment for PORTUGAl… we won the EURO 2016!

8. What is your most recent personal project?

I actually started a new job 3 weeks ago, and I’m truly loving it. I was a bit scared at first, because it was so out of my comfort zone, but I’m loving everyone working with me, and I love the project.

9. Tell us something that you think about often?

Traveling. I think about packing my bags and going somewhere every single day!

10. Give us something that is your favorite.

MATCHA! Anything with matcha, I love!

11. Say the first thing that pops into your head.

“I hope Sporting wins tonight!”

Do you want context? Sporting is my soccer team, and they have a huge game tonight, with their biggest rival, and I hope they do well, and nothing bad happens on the stadium, because I have family there at this moment.

Bookish Book Lover Tag

Hey guys! So, I’ve actually done this tag before, in the summer, and you can check out that post here, but because I’ve been tagged again, and this particular tag is very fluid, I’m doing it again. I was tagged by Deanna @A Novel Glimpse, Luci and Mariana @Book Is Glee. Thank you girls! The Bookish Book Lovers Tag was originally created by Shantelle @A Writer’s Heart.

What book are you currently reading?

At this moment I’m reading 3 books: Could You Love An Apple? by Becky Jerams, Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner (which I’m buddy reading with Cátia and Kat) and Where I Belong by J. Daniels (highly recommended by Deanna).

What’s the last book you finished?

I’m doing the last 3 I finished, OK?! So, they were: Definitions of Indefinable Things by Whitney Taylor, Addicted to You by Krista Ritchie and Becca Ritchie and Co-Wrecker by Meghan Quinn.

Favourite book you read this year?

Yeah… I have to say Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde. This book just earned the highest place in my heart. I just can’t shake it.

What genre have you read most this year?

So…. looking at my read books, I have to say that I mostly read contemporary romances, either YA, NA or adult…

What genre have you read least this year?

Non-fiction, in this case biographies and memoirs. I’ve read The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui, which is an amazing graphic novel, but I want to read more of the genre this year.

What genre do you want to read more of?

I want to read more Sci-Fi and Fantasy, because I’ve been lacking this year so far, and I’ve only read 2 books in this category, and I have so damn many of them on my TBR.

How many books have you read this year, and what’s your goal?

My goal for this year is 150 books, and I’m past the 1/3 of the goal, because I’ve read 52 books already. Yeah… I’m 19 books ahead of schedule…

What’s the last book you bought?

I had to go to amazon, but here they are: Only A Kiss by Ines Bautista-Yao,  After Hello (You Had Me At Hello #1.5) by Mhairi McFarlane, Confessions of a Reformed Tom Cat (Wingmen #2) by Daisy Prescott, and Body Shot (Last Shot #1) by Kelly Jamieson.

What book are you saving up to buy next?

I can’t wait to get The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli, also Six of Crows and Gemina, and I don’t think those need any explanation whatsoever.

How many books did you check out last library visit?

I usually don’t use libraries, for obvious reasons, aka, they don’t have books in english that I would like. Either way, the other day I had to go to the Humanities library of my university in Barcelona, because I needed some references for my thesis, and this was one of the books I read. It translates to “The severed heads of Ullastret. Violence and ritual Iberian world“, and it’s pretty cool and about some skulls and remains I worked on 🙂 .

What’s a book you can’t wait to read?

I bought Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow awhile back and I’m dying to have some time to actually start it, because I’m sure this will take me MONTHS!

What’s a series you’d recommend to everyone?

Instead of series, I’m doing stand-alones, because the series you can find on my previous tag, ok? These are 3 books I LOVED this year, and I think everyone should get to them.

Who’s an author you’re hoping writes more?

MARLEY JACOBS! She has to write more books, because I really liked her debut novel, Goodnight, Nic, and I loved loved loved how she writes dialogues.

A few books your heart adores?

Some of my favorites of 2017 so far… 🙂

What series’ coming conclusion makes you sad?

I don’t know… I’ve been reading a lot of contemporary series, and they sometimes have spin offs, so…

What books are on your wish-list?

Here are some…
