top 10 tuesday

Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Books Of X Genre (I know, I know. Picking all time faves. I’m MEAN. But I like knowing people’s definitive faves). Can also break it down into sub-genre if that helps?

I decided to go the obvious way and do some of my favorite contemporaries, either YA, NA or adult. Here we go!

Sailor Moon Book Tag

sailormoon_booktag

Hi guys! If you don’t know yet, I’m a huge fan of Sailor Moon, so when I saw this tag at Rayna @ReaderRayna‘s blog, I just had to do it! This tag was created by Kristin @Super Space Chick, Alexa @Alexa Loves Books, Cee @The Novel Hermit, Cristina @Girl in the Pages, and Sierra @SDavReads.


Moon: A book that makes you hungry

                      

The reasons for Simon Snow wanting to go back to school were mostly FOOD! So, how can one read Carry On by Rainbow Rowell and not think of food and being hungry?


Mercury: A book that features science and technology

                       

I love Ami and Sailor Mercury 😀 – look at her! Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff takes place in space, and has several elements of science and technology.


Venus: A book that makes you want to play video games

                         

I think the only logical answer for this question is Ernest Cline, and because I’ve only read Armada so far, I’m saying that. I really liked this book 😉 .


Mars: A book inspired by mythology or folklore

                

Rei Hino was for a long time my favorite Sailor Scout. I loved how she would give shit to Usagi, eheh. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas is a retelling of Hades and Persephone, so it has some elements of mythology.


Jupiter: A book that gave you strong feelings

                     

Then Makoto Kino (a.k.a. Sailor Jupiter) got there, and she stole my heart. I mean, this girl cooks and kicks ass? What’s not to love about her? Back to the question… Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma gave me SUPER STRONG FEELINGS! So much so, that I haven’t been able to write its review yet…


Saturn: A post apocalyptic book you love

                   

I’m not a huge fan of post apocalyptic books, but I absolutely loved Angelfall by Susan Ee, and I highly recommend this trilogy to everyone. The story is great, but the characters are absolutely amazing!


Pluto: A time travel book

                     

Sailor Pluto… eheh, should we talk about her massive crush on King Endymion?! The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig is much more than a time travel book, but it works for this question perfectly 😉 .


Uranus: A book featuring elemental magic

                     

Sailor Uranus, or Haruka Tenoh, was always one of my favorite characters in this show. I loved her sass, and her confidence, and I loved (and still do) her relationship with Michiru. So it’s only fitting to use Heir of Fire for this question, where 2 of my favorite book characters EVER have elemental powers.


Neptune: A book featuring music

                     

Oh Michiru ❤ ! Loud is How I Love You by Mercy Brown features a LOT of music, given that the main character and her love interest are part of a band, and they write together too.


Tuxedo Mask: A book with masquerades or hidden identities

                     

I’m so glad that in the new anime Mamoru revealed his identity as Tuxedo Mask to Usagi way earlier in the game, because come on… it was so obvious! In The Girl’s Got Secrets by Linda Kage, the main character pretends to be a boy to be able to get the gig as a band’s drummer. Things get tricky when she falls in love with her frontman.


Rini/Chibi Moon: A favorite middle grade book

                     

I haven’t read a lot of middle grade, so I’m going with the most obvious answer of all, and say Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling.


Luna, Artemis & Diana: A book for animal lovers

                     

How cute are Luna, Artemis and Diana? Either way, Wallbanger by Alice Clayton has the most amazing cat ever in books :D.

Book Traveling Thursdays: A Favorite Bookish Pet

btt

Hello, welcome back to another Book Traveling 168709Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.

This week’s theme is “Everyone needs a companion. Choose your favorite bookish pet“. This one is easy. I have to choose Clive from Wallbanger by Alice Clayton… I just HAVE TO! Clive is freaking amazing and fun and he’s the best cat EVER!!!


Original COver:

This one is the original US cover and I can’t believe I’m saying this… but this cover kind of grew on me…

COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (PORTUGAL) & COVER FROM THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN (SPAIN):

No cover for Portugal, but the book did come out in Spain, and they went for the original cover. I have to say that I like this edition, I like the pink letters better and I like the size and placing of the author’s name.

Favorite COVER(s):

                                            

I’m not in love with any of the covers for this book, but the Spanish and the Brazilian editions are probably my favorites. By the way, the brazilian title “Subindo pelas Paredes” literally means “climbing walls“, and it’s an expression of need… deep deep need.

LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):

                                              

These 2 covers, the Italian and Indonesian editions, are pretty bad, right? Especially the last one…

Top Ten Tuesday: Couples and Love Songs

top 10 tuesday

Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

This week is all about music & books. We previously did books we’d give theme songs to so feel free to do that! Or 10 songs I wish that were books (check out my love songs I wish were books for 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.

Given that Valentine’s Day was just a couple of days ago, I decided to fuse some couples with some music. I only used NA couples for this week ;-). So here are some couples with some love lyrics that apply to them (in my opinion 🙂 ).
