Seasons of Book Blogging Tag (2016 Edition)

seasonsbookblogging

Once again, I’m repeating a post from last year, because why not, right? The Seasons of Book Blogging Tag was created by creator J @J. BOOKISH, and you can check my 2015 post here.

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Thank the creator (so she can see all of your answers!) and the person who tagged you.
  • Begin with the month in which you have been tagged and move forward from there!
  • State the best gift you’ve ever been given after you answer the question for your birthday month.
  • Tag whomever you’d like when you’re finished.. or else you’ll be “it” forever.
  • Have fun, of course!

Slide1

Ohhh, so many!!!

               


Slide2

Well, I did a few tags with resolutions, and lets keep it blog related, shall we? I vowed to write discussions’ posts, reach 1000 followers, keep posting at least 5 times a week… I did all of those, ho YAY?!


Slide3

I think one of my favorite relationships this past year was the friendship between all the guys of the Off-Campus Series bt Elle Kennedy. In general, I feel like friendship has a stronger role in NA than in YA, which is sad and shouldn’t happen. But somehow, friendships with teens are always more fickle.

               


Slide4

Probably ACOMAF and Archer’s Voice.

                                                     


Slide5

The two books I’m gonna show here weren’t exactly over-hyped, but they were talked about a lot, and were everywhere for a while, and I really didn’t enjoy them. I read both South of Sunshine by Dana Elmendorf  and The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel as ARCs.

                                                  


Slide6

Again… SO MANY!

               


Slide7

Definitely contemporary, and I seem to need to check out almost every day of the year, because that’s most of my reads.


Slide8

Are you fixating on all those abs? You should :P, but these books are amazing on their own right!

               


Slide9

No clue to be honest… I know Angie Thomas will be in high demand because of The Hate U Give. I’m super curious about this book… I did request it from Edelweiss, but I was denied… like always!


Slide10

No, I’m not doing that. It was ages ago and the books generally sucked, or were too portuguese to actually put here (you would get it if you had to study them). So, I’m using a book that inspired my superior studies, how’s that? The Seven Daughters of Eve by Bryan Sykes made me want to go to Anthropology and populations’ genetics.


Slide11

I really don’t like Halloween, and I can’t think of one character I would like to dress up like. Maybe Kestrel from The Winner’s Curse? Only because those dresses should be magnificent.


Slide12

So, I want to thank Deanna @A Novel Glimpse, because it was there that I saw Him and she made me want to read it. Then I want to thank Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much for recommending and LENDING November 9 to me… you know how much I loved it. Thanks to Regina @the bibliotheque I became aware of Archer’s Voice and oh wow! Last but not least, because Kat @Life and Other Disasters raved about The Martian for so long, I finally read it and loved it.

Seasons of Book Blogging Tag

seasonsbookblogging

Hello, here we are for another book tag! The Seasons of Book Blogging Tag was created by creator J @J. BOOKISH, and this time I was tagged by a few people… Rogan @Signing On, Kat @Life and Other Disasters, Jackie @fallinlovewiththesoundofwords, Joey @Thoughts and Afterthoughts and Lois @MY MIDNIGHT MUSING. Check out all their blogs!

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Thank the creator (so she can see all of your answers!) and the person who tagged you.
  • Begin with the month in which you have been tagged and move forward from there!
  • State the best gift you’ve ever been given after you answer the question for your birthday month.
  • Tag whomever you’d like when you’re finished.. or else you’ll be “it” forever.
  • Have fun, of course!

Slide1

I’ll name a book I’m going to actually give as a gift ;-), how about that?! And that is Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. I’m going to give it to my best friend, because she saw a post about quotes by Rainbow Rowell and was intrigued by this one book, which happens to be my favorite. I’m not extremely hopeful that she’ll read it though, even if she says she will during her vacations…

Slide2

I’m not really into resolutions… like, not at all…

Slide3

Oh My God, this one is so so hard!!! I have so many favorite relationships, OTPs and friendships and everything in between. I’m going to pick all the relationships in Cress. I love Cress and Thorne, Scarlet and Wolf, Cinder and Kai, but I also love Iko’s friendship with Cinder, and Cinder’s friendship with Thorne and Wolf. I love all of them!

Slide4

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I read it at the beginning of all this “reading like crazy” thing of mine, and I would love to pick it up and read it like I never saw it before in my life.

Slide5

My only answer can only be The Maze Runner… do I need to explain it?

Slide6

Nothing best than not having a clue about a book or it’s rating. When I picked up The One Thing by Marci Lyn Curtis from Netgalley, I had no idea if it would be good or not, but it more than pleasantly surprised me, it actually became one of my favorite books.

Slide7

Anything! I can check out with just about anything! But lately, when I don’t want to think much, I’ve been picking up New Adult books, they’re kind of perfect for a fast read and a good time.

Slide8

Queen of Shadows, without a doubt, made me see all the fireworks!!! Sarah J. Maas is a genious and I loved this book so so much!

Slide9

AHHHH, I’m gonna say Becky Albertalli, author of Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, because she’s awesome and that book is awesome, and if you still haven’t read it, I don’t know what the hell you’re waiting for!

Slide10

I only remember liking one book that I read for school – remember this, when I was in school, I wasn’t a big fan of reading, that’s partially why I took sciences. I really liked Os Lusíadas by Luis Vaz de Camões.

Slide11

Eleanor, from Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell), because she dresses so differently and adorably…

Slide12

ANGELFALL!!!!!!! I loved it so so much!!! Thank you Josie, for forcing me to pick it up 😀
