Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I Plan To Read On The Beach

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:

Beach Reads Week – top ten great beach reads, ten books I plan to read on the beach, ten beach reads for those who don’t like typical ~beach reads~, ten authors who are my go-to for beach reads, etc.

I’m doing 10 books I plan to read on the beach (or this summer at least!).

Book Traveling Thursdays: Book to Movie (2016)

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 loves movies… Choose a movie that is going to be adapted in 2016“. For the first since I started to do the Book Traveling Thursday thread, I’ll use a book that I haven’t read yet, but that I plan to and that I already own. So I’m going with A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, which will be released later this year.


Original COver:

I absolutely love this cover, especially because it’s the illustrated edition and the one that I proudly own.

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

                                          

Ohhh, I’m so happy that we already have this book translated to portuguese 😀 and that they kept the original cover!!! The spanish cover is slightly different but I like it a lot, though it doesn’t invoke the “scary” feelings that the original does.

Favorite COVER(s):

                                       

As I said, I absolutely love the original cover, it’s perfect! But I also love UK’s first non-illustrated edition… the cover is so gorgeous, it’s mouth-watering! Yeah, it’s a bit on the lighter side of scary, but it’s so brilliant.

LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):

            

In general, I really like all of the covers for this book, but these are the ones I like less… The italian I’m not sure why I don’t like it, I think it has to do with the drawing and the font. The next two covers are for germany, and the first one’s problem is that “WHY?”, while the last one is almost pretty, it just isn’t my fave.

Top Ten Tuesday: Finished Series I Have YET to Finish

It’s Tuesday, September 8th, which means that it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:  Finished Series I Have YET to Finish. The thing is, when I start a finish series, I’ll devour it pretty quickly and one book right after the other. So, there aren’t many finished series that I’ve started and have not finished yet. With that in mind, I’ll share the finish series that I want to start until the end of this year.

Top Ten Tuesday

1. The Maze Runner by James Dashner

mazerunner

This is in fact the only finished series that I’ve started and have not finished… I’ve only read the first book yet. I will finish it though, I really want to…

 2. Mistborn (the original trilogy) by Brandon Sanderson

I’m so so curious about this series…

3. The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

maxresdefault

Same for this one, the only reason I haven’t bought it yet is because I haven’t found the 3 books at the same moment.

4. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

I do own the first 2 books for a while now, maybe  Christmas will me the right time to get into it.

5. Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

heroes-of-olympus

This will follow, as soon as I finish the Percy Jackson series.

6. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

I already have the first book. I bought it super cheap for my kindle! This because I want the hardcover, which are beautiful and expensive. I’ll probably read it on my upcoming trip in October… lots of hours inside airplanes with my Kindle.

7. Penryn and the End of Days by Susan Ee

penryn

Much like the one above, I already own the first book in this series, and I’ll be reading it on my upcoming trip in October as well.

8. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

tolkien

I will read at least The Hobbit before the year ends… probably… hopefully…

9. The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness

Chaos-Walking-Covers

I’ve read so many great things about this trilogy that I need to check it out.

10. The Mara Dyer Trilogy by Michelle Hodkin

I’ve been curious about this series for a while, though I don’t know if it’s really my thing. It’s also on the bottom of my To Read List right now.
