Book Traveling Thursdays: A Book With a Badass Heroine

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 “It was International Women’s Day!! Choose a book with a badass heroine“.  People, I tried to look at different books, I did, but ultimately I have to go back to Celaena Sardothien on this one (even if I think that Aelin is much more badass than Celaena…). So, Throne of Glass it is.


Original COver:

This is one of those cases where I’m just so freaking glad that they changed the cover design after the first book, because this cover was not good.

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

                                           

I’m so glad that the portuguese edition used the UK cover design, but I’m not a fan of the red letters. About the spanish cover… hmmm, I honestly thought this was a temporary design, but I guess not. It’s beautifully simplistic though.

Favorite COVER(s):

                                           

My favorite cover, without a doubt, is the UK edition, and I’m so glad I own it :D. This book (like the rest of this series) is just gorgeous! But that Dutch edition is kind of beautiful, right? I like it!

LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):

               

Ok, these are some pretty bad ones. The worst, in my opinion, is the hebraic edition… I mean, what even? Then the Turkish is just a bit weird, but still it’s the least bad of the three. The Romanian cover is something that I don’t even understand.

Book Traveling Thursdays: A Character I Love To Hate

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 some books have amazing villains choose a book with a character you love to hate!“. For today I chose a villain that I truly LOVE to hate, and that is Arobynn Hamel from the Throne of Glass series. I feel like he’s such a complex character, and I couldn’t help but love his appearances on the books, even though he’s despicable. Because Queen of Shadows only has 3 covers out yet, I chose The Assassin’s Blade.


Original COver:

This is the original cover for the US. It follows the theme of the others Throne of Glass covers and I really like it.

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

No covers for either countries…

Favorite Cover(s):

I might really like the US cover, but the UK one is my favorite. I just like the font slightly better, and the placing too. Also, it somehow feels more vibrant.

LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):

                                                

There aren’t a lot of covers for this book, so my least favorites are the Polish and Russian editions. The polish is not all that bad, it uses the silhouette of the Throne of Glass book and the stripes are the different novellas… but I’m not a fan. The Russian is just… nope, it doesn’t do it for me.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books To Read If You Like Kick-@ss Female Heroines

Hello, it’s Tuesday again, which means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

Ten Books To Read If You Like This Super Popular Book/Author (ie: you could list 10 different popular/bestselling books or authors with readalike suggestions for each or give 10 books for one best-selling/popular book or author like 10 authors to read if you like John Green or ten books to read if you like Gone Girl. Idea is to give good readalikes that may be less well known).

Top Ten Tuesday

I was struggling with this one a lot! I don’t usually make connections between authors or books and i couldn’t come up with anything more than 5 book, no matter which combination I tried. So, after contemplating not doing it this week, I decided to spin it a bit and make it a theme instead of an author or book. So, Ten Books To Read If You Like Kick-@ss Female Heroines! I’m sorry before hand for totally missing the goal of this week’s topic…

1. Throne of Glass Series (Sarah J. Maas)

throne of glass

This series is full of gorgeous, super strong women. Such as Aelin, Nehemia, Lysandra, Manon, …, I love how strong, powerful and human they all are.

2. The Wrath & The Dawn (Renée Ahdieh)

Shahrzad is one of my favorite female character ever. Despina is pretty bad-@ss herself.

3. The One Thing (Marci Lyn Curtis)

Maggie is so strong and sassy! I love the hell out of her.

4. The Infernal Devices (Cassandra Clare)

Tessa Gray, Charlotte Fairchild, Sophie Collins, Cecily Herondale. These four ladies are worth several men!

5. Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell)

Eleanor is a different kind of strong female character. She doesn’t fight or anything, but she managed to survive some awful situations and still manage to live.

6. Harry Potter series (J.K. Rowling)

Hermione Granger is on everyone’s mind when we think of kick-@ss women, right? But I’ll raise you Molly Weasley, Minerva Mcgonagall, Nymphadora Tonks, Luna Lovegood, Ginny Weasley, Alice Longbottom, …

7. A Clash of Kings (George R. R. Martin)

One name for you: Aria Stark. Sure, this series has other female heroines, such as Daenerys, but Aria is my favorite.

8. Memoirs of a Geisha (Arthur Golden)

Chiyo goes through some bad stuff throughout her life…

9. The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins)

It’s not because Katniss is broken that she stops being freaking amazing.

10. My Heart and Other Black Holes (Jasmine Warga)

 I really admire Aysel. Yes, the only thing she wants in the beginning is to end her life, but she goes through a big transformation and goes because of it. She makes my list!

Throne of Glass optioned for TV!!!!

STOP EVERYTHING!!!! Sarah J. Maas as just announced that Throne of Glass has been optioned for TV! WHAT????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
