Book Traveling Thursdays: A World I Would Like To Live In

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 “Because world building matters… Choose a book in which world you would like to live“. Because I’ve used most of the books I’ve read with worlds I would like to live in, I’m gonna say Illuminae, because even though the thought of space scares me a bit, I do love the setup of this world.


Original and Favorite COver:

This is the US hardcover, and it is one of the most gorgeous covers that I own, because the dust jacket is semitransparent and it lets us see the writing beneath, and it’s just amazing.

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

                                             

Illuminae came out here in Portugal on the 1st of this month! I was so surprised, I was so excited when I saw it for sale yesterday. It is a paperback though, so not as cool as the hardcover. Same goes for the spanish edition.

LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):

Even though I still like the UK paperback, I don’t like it as much as the original, or even the spanish and portuguese editions. Somehow I think that the black there doesn’t quite fit, and the orange is slightly less pretty.

March TBR

Hey guys! 🙂 After a successful reading month of February, when I read only romances, I want to keep the ball rolling and read a bunch of books this month too, and see if I can finally lift my Netgalley ratio closer to 80%. So, here are the books I plan on reading this month of March.

  1. Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – I actually started this one 3 days ago, and I’m buddy reading it with Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much

  3. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – Now, as soon as this book is out, I’m buying it!
  4. Extreme by Lark O’Neal – I received this book for review from Xpresso Book Tours and I started it yesterday and OMG!! 😀 😀 😀

  7. In Your Dreams by Ginger Scott –  I’ll be reading this one as part as a blog tour from WordSmith Publicity.
  8. Playing Defense by Cate Cameron – eARC from Netgalley, probably reading it with Cátia.
  9. Wanting More by Jessica Ruddick – eARC from Netgalley, probably reading it with Cátia (yeah, we have a lot of books to read together this month 😛 ).
  10. South of Sunshine  by Dana Elmendorf – eARC from Netgalley
  11. Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell – It’s already on my kindle, ready to be read.
  12. The Crown and the Arrow (The Wrath and the Dawn 0.5) by Renee Ahdieh – Khalid is waiting :D.

From this list, only 2 books and 2 novellas aren’t ARCs/Galleys, but I’m positive that I’ll be able to get to them all :). What about you? Are you reading any of these books?

Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) Cover Reveal

coverreveal

I just started Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and I’m already so excited about the second book of the series, Gemina. Look how gorgeous this cover is!!! (you can find the original article here)

From bestselling author duo Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff comes the second edge-of-your-seat installment in the trilogy that reviewers are calling “stylistically mesmerizing” and “out-of-this-world-awesome.”

While Kady and Ezra are fighting for their lives aboard the Alexander, Jump Station Heimdall is facing a different wave of the Beitech assault. Meet Hanna and Nik: she’s the station captain’s pampered daughter, while Nik runs with Heimdall’s dangerous black market scene. When an elite team of Beitech assassins targets Heimdall, Nik and Hanna are thrown together to fight the enemy–and the assassins are just the beginning. With deadly alien creatures slithering through air ducts, a second fleet of attack drones headed their way, and a phenomenon threatening the wormhole near the space station, Hanna and Nik aren’t just critical to the Kerenza fight–they may hold the fate of the very universe in their hands.
