The Book Snob Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

My last tag has been a while agao and I thought why not go for another one. I was tagged for this by Hundreds & Thousands of Books about a year ago and decided to go for it now. *lol* My backlog of tags is massive as you can see, but better late than never, right? ;-P So this said: Thank you for tagging me for this fun tag! It’s definitely one I never did before. XD

FORMAT SNOB You can only choose 1 format in which to read books for the rest of your life. Which one do you choose: physical books, eBooks, or audiobooks?

Okay, I guess I’m outing myself as a format snob now because when it comes to books physical ones will always win. 😉 And to be even more snobbish: paperback copies. *lol* I’m not an all too huge fan of hardback copies so if I buy a book (which I rarely do because I’m usually borrowing them from my library) then I always buy paperbacks. I’ve read plenty of e-books on my e-reader too but it’s just not the same as paging through a book. Tell me I’m not alone with this! *lol*

ADAPTATION SNOB: Do you always read the book before watching the film/ TV show?

I really try my best to do that, but I’m not always succeeding. There were a couple of times I only watched the movie and never read the book, but you can count them on one hand. I think it’s really rare for me to read the book after watching the movie and this is mostly due to the fact that I only found out the movie was based on a book after watching the movie. If that makes sense? XD

SHIP SNOB Would you date or marry a non-reader?

I think I never dated a non-reader and I definitely married a reader so I guess that says enough? In my experience you have to have some common ground to make a relationship work and I probably could have never dated or married a non-reader because reading is such an integral part of my life it would be impossible not to talk about it. A non-reader would probably roll their eyes. My hubby, well, he rolls his eyes too because he reads in different genres than me, but at the end of the day he understands my enthusiasm for books because he enjoys reading them too. =)

GENRE SNOB You have to ditch one genre – never to be read again for the rest of your life. Which one do you ditch?

Religious/Spiritual books and biographies. Oh, that are actually two. Never mind! XD And to explain it: I respect everyone’s religion and in who or what they believe in but I don’t need to read books about it. Most of the religious/spiritual books I’ve read and seen have a patronizing angle or try to convert you and I just can’t with that. Also I’m very bad at reading biographies because I lose interest in them pretty fast. That genre just isn’t for me.

COMMUNITY SNOB Which genre do you think receives the most snobbery from the bookish community?

Haha! That’s a fun question. I personally think that it would be erotica. No matter if it’s f/m, m/m, f/f etc. it’s definitely a genre A LOT of people frown upon. Like decent people, read decent books and erotica is not decent. *lol* Believe me, I’ve been there, done that, got the freaking t-shirt. I really got a lot of shit for reading in that genre, but quite honestly I don’t care. I read what I want to read and if people don’t like that, it’s their problem not mine. ;-P

SNOBERY RECIPITENT Have you ever been snubbed for something that you have been reading or for reading in general?

There will always be people who wonder why you read so much and can’t understand your love for books, but I got used to it by now. If you’ve never been so hooked by a book that you read until the early morning hours you’re definitely missing out! XD It’s their loss though. And yes, as I mentioned earlier a lot of people snubbed me for reading erotica.

This was a short and fun tag! I really liked that this was a little bit unusual and different. XD So what about you? Did you enjoy my answers? Do you agree on some of them or do you disagree? What is a genre you don’t read in very often?

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe!

The Agust D ‚D-2‘ Book Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

To celebrate 1 year with Agust D’s ‚D-2‘ mixtape the Yoongi to my V came up with a book tag for it in May! And since I’m her V and a fellow ARMY she decided to tag me for it! I consider myself lucky to be tagged by her for all of her original BTS (BTS related) book tags because they are always amazing and I love to do them! 💜 I decided to go for a BookTube video again because I want this tag to spread throughout the whole world. *lol* It’s just too good and I hope many people will enjoy to do it as well! This said, let’s jump right into it!

Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post.
  • Link to the original tag’s creator: Sabrina @ Notes From a Paper Plane Nomad (please credit if using these graphics!)
  • Pick a book that fits each prompt.
  • Tag your friends or leave it open-ended!
  • Copy-paste these rules and list of prompts in your tag post (it should automatically pingback to the original so your post can be added to a masterlist!)

Here are the graphics with parts of the lyrics:

(All lyrics quoted are sourced from Doolset’s translations unless otherwise specified.)

“I wrote Verse1 f***ing fast,
But can’t make Verse 2 no matter how hard I rack my brain”

“Hit this town then cut and run in a jet
This country’s too small to hold me in yet” (lyrics from MV)

“What do you think, what do you think
Whatever you think, I’m sorry but I don’t f***ing care at all”

‘Strange’ (ft. RM): Dystopian

“We’re given multiple choices
And our taste is controlled by the capital”

“I grow older
And become to know the world
And yet, would it have been better to not know the world?”

“Whether it would become a blazing sun
Or the ashes left behind after being burnt —
Always, the choice and decision is yours to make”

“Your being ordinary is rather my being special
Your being special is rather my being ordinary”

“I thought I’d party every day when I become a superstar
But the ideal is slapping the reality in the back of its head”

“Set me free, I’m floating freely in the void”

“Still, as ever,
I miss you, and I miss you
Still, as ever,
The memories of us together circle around me

Dear my friend, how are you doing”

BONUS prompt!

If graphics aren’t your jam: Here’s a list of text-only prompts!

  • Moonlight: easy to get into but hard to finish
  • Daechwita: genre-bending
  • What do you think?: badass characters
  • Strange: dystopian
  • 28: coming of age
  • Burn It: fire in the cover/title
  • People: book you love that others didn’t, or vice versa
  • Honsool: didn’t live up to expectations
  • Interlude: set me free – feel like a dream
  • Dear My Friend: book involving letters/emails/notes
  • (BONUS PROMPT) Butter: sequel you liked more than Book 1

Tagging…

Since I couldn’t really tag anyone in the video except of everyone who watches it, I decided to tag people for it in this blog post!

Of course you don’t have to do the tag if you don’t want to! I just thought that you might! 😉

Also just in case you want to check out my BookTube channel: Here is the link!*lol*

Rankenzeile

This tag was so much fun and I want to thank Sabrina once more for creating it for us Agust D fans and ARMYs! The graphics and the prompts are super cool! They totally give me a Yoongi vibe! *lol* Did you read any of the books I mentioned in the prompts or do you want to read some of them? Do you want to do the tag as well?

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

And as always stay safe and healthy and take care!

The Bookish Baking Book Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

I already know that I’m going to regret doing this tag once I’m finished because there is no way… Literally NO WAY I won’t get hungry after this! *lol* I mean alone the first prompt already makes my mouth water! Haha! So yeah, I guess I’m doomed! XD

Anyway! I was tagged for this by Elli @ AceReader and I want to thank her for thinking of me! If you don’t know Elli’s blog yet you should definitely go and check it out! Elli has a great blog and an awesome personality so you can’t go wrong with taking a closer look! 😉 This said, let’s do this!


Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you
  • Link back to them and the original creator (Kay @ Hammock of Books)
  •  Answer the 12 prompts, and feel free to use these graphics
  • Tag 5+ friends to share the sweetness

17347389Because quite honestly I’ve never read a better prologue in a book than the one in „The Dream Thieves“. (Okay, the one in „The Name of the Wind“ is amazing too. *lol*) Still, the atmosphere, the poetic writing, the way the pacing for the book is set! Perfection! This book already captured all of my attention with the opening lines and it stayed strong until the very end! ❤ Maggie Stiefvater is a true master of words!

34879283. sy475
I guess I’ll go with „One Day in December“ here because I really enjoyed that one and it gave me all the December and New Year vibes? *lol* Also this story was really something and it gave me all the feels! I felt so much with Sarah, Jack and Laurie it wasn’t even normal anymore and I remember being up until midnight because I just NEEDED to know how the story ends. XD

41473872 Nathan Allan from „I Wish You All the Best“! I recently finished reading the book and he’s just too precious and good for this world! Seriously, everyone should have a Nathan Allan in their life because this boy is an angel! ❤ He always did the right thing and knew exactly what Ben needed and he was so altruistic that it sometimes hurt! *lol*

16143347
Okay, that might be a super unconventional choice but „We Were Liars“ actually fits the bill?! *lol* Hear me out! So there are four liars named Mirren, Johnny, Gat and Cady and they always meet on an island in summer. They basically spent all their summers on this island until one year when there is a huge fire. And well, the rest is a super intriguing story that will blow your mind! So you better read that one because it’s good! ;-P

32768522 I get all giddy when I think about Simon and Baz and even though I read „Carry On“ a million of times after first reading it in 2017 it still makes me so damn happy. I’m always smiling when I think about this book and Simon and Baz will always cause me to end up as a melted butter puddle on the ground. I think „Carry On“ just gives me that feeling of undiluted happiness you usually only feel when you’re a child.

5297

I guess I’ll always go with „The Picture of Dorian Gray“ here! 😉 There are a lot of great classics out there but none is as good as this one. At least I haven’t read another classic that got me as excited as Oscar Wilde’s „Dorian Gray“.
29396
Everyone is always talking about Jim Butcher’s „Harry Dresden“ series but quite honestly I think that his „Codex Alera“ series is way better than the Dresden books. Yes, Harry Dresden is a cool guy and the books are easy to page through but the „Codex Alera“ series is so intricate and amazing! It’s epic and high fantasy at its best and I don’t understand why it’s still so underrated. Give it some love!!! XD

40495957. sy475

Nick and Charlie are the purest fluff ever and anyone who tells you otherwise didn’t read it! *lol* „Heartstopper“ is really the first (and only) series I think of when I hear fluff. ❤ And speaking of fluff I just realized that I should read more fluffy books because I can’t even think of one other book that was as fluffy as well. I need more fluff in my life so if you read this send your recommendations my way! ;-P

32075671. sy475 „The Hate U Give“ didn’t just have a good message it was an important massage as well and it still needs to be spread and heard! I really liked Starr and her friends and the way she used her voice to fight for the things that matter. Angie Thomas wrote an amazing book and I hope many people will read it!

35068705

R.F. Kuang’s „The Poppy War“ was so intimidating! Alone the sheer size of this book with more than 500 pages and then the entire plot and the things that happen in it! O_o To be honest I’m still not over „The Poppy War“ and after reading it I’m even more intimidated by the second book. *lol* I don’t know if I’ll ever have the guts to read „The Dragon Republic“! I’m scared! T_T

34325090. sy475 I could have gone with every single one of Alice Oseman’s books here but „I Was Born for This“ was so amazing that I just have to mention it! 😉 All the band members and Angel don’t only make for a super diverse cast but they are also very relatable and feel real! Plus we have a bi, gay and transgender rep which are all super amazing! ❤ Alice Oseman writes the perfect books, seriously! XD

16096824. sy475 This is probably one of the most hyped book series I know and it’s hyped for a reason. I loved the original trilogy and I really hope the next books that will follow will be great too. I’m currently reading „A Court of Silver Flames“ and since this book is about Nesta I’m very curious how I’ll come out of it. *lol*

I Tag:

As always you don’t have to do the tag but of course I’d be happy to see your answers! 😀

Rankenzeile

This was a super fun tag and I hope you enjoyed my answers! Thank you so much for tagging me Elli! It might have taken ages for me to get to this but I did it! Eventually! *lol* Also I’m super hungry after doing this tag! Like ahhh I need a cupcake right NOW!!! T_T

As always take care and stay healthy and safe!

The LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag (Original!)

The LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag4

Hey there, my lovelies!

I always wanted to do my own tag and last year during PRIDE month I thought: Why not make my own LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag!? (Yes, it kind of rhymes again. You know, faeries and all that jazz! ;-P ) Anyway back to the topic at hand: Why did I do my own LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag? Well, 1.) I tried to find an already existing tag I could do for Pride month but nothing I found was the way I imagined it in my head. 2.) Once the idea took root the muse of creativity hit me full force and I couldn’t have stopped for the life of me. 3.) I blame it all on May and Sabrina!!! *lol* No, seriously, those two girls were so creative when they invented their The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Character Book Tag and The School for Good and Evil Book Tag that I was inspired big time! ❤ 4.) I’m a part of the community so I figured… why the hell not? 😛

Additional and nonrelevant (at least for you) info:

  • I know my graphics aren’t nearly as good as May’s or Sabrina’s and probably way too colourful, but I did my best or at least tried to. Bear with me? *lol* T_T
  • I never made my own tag, so this is a premiere and hopefully a good one. XD
  • You don’t even want to know how long it took me to create this and I really hope you enjoy the prompts and puns/wordplays. There went a lot of thought into them.

Okay, I’m done now! So without further ado: Let’s just go for it!

Rankenzeile

15. FUTURE GENERATIONS: Your most anticipated LGBTQ+ release

Female Strength

34433755

I haven’t read „Girls of Paper and Fire“ yet but I heard that it has strong lesbian characters and I’m so ready to dive into it. The entire concept of a demon king that chooses 8 girls as his concubines sounds super intriguing and the promise of a slowburn f/f romance that defies the misogynistic structure of their land is just another reason to pick this up. Well, at least for me it is. ;-P

Cinnamon Roll

41150487. sy475

I already said it last year when I created this tag and I’ll say it again: There are way too many adorable gay book characters to name just one. Since I decided to chose Simon Spiers last year, I’ll go with another super sweet and adorable cinnamon roll in 2021! Prince Henry from „Red, White & Royal Blue“! I mean he’s a Warsie and a Potterhead and he is so damn cute I can’t even! I was a goner the moment he appeared on page and I still love my shy and sad boy! ❤

Boys & Girls

36285077. sx318

I tried to chose different books this year and the only other amazing bi rep aside from Evelyn Hugo I could think of is Javier Landes from „A Charm of Finches“. I love Javier so much and the way he came to terms with his bisexuality was amazing. He’s the perfect example that it is never too late to come out and to accept yourself for who you are. And what I really liked about this rep was that he was mainly attracted to women, but when he fell for a man it was head over heels. For me this was super relatable because it’s the same with me only the other way around. *lol*

The Body & the Soul

34325090. sy475 I still don’t know a lot of books that feature transgender characters, but I’m trying my best to find some! Truth be told I had no idea there would be a transgender MC in this book when I started to read it, but I was positively surprised when I realized that Jimmy was transgender! XD And of course the rep was great because Alice Oseman wrote it and this woman can WRITE!!! I loved everything about this book and it actually got one of my very rare 5 paw ratings. Plus I really liked that we got to see the medical side of things as well and what it means if you truly start to transition.

We're all queer

35442720. sy475

I still want to see more gender fluid reps in books and after reading Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) I realized that I want more sex positive reps in books as well. I mean Jack is gay and he likes to be free and unattached. He has a lot of sex and he’s totally okay with that. Jack was completely unapologetic about being gay and having sex with different partners and I think this is such an important message. More realistic and sex positive LGBTQ+ reps in books please!!

All about pronouns

41473872

How come this is still the only book I know that features a non-binary character? And how come I still haven’t read this? *lol* I put it on my June TBR this year though and I’ve every intention to finally read it. All the reviews I read about „I Wish You All the Best“ were great so far and since this is an own voices book I’m pretty certain it will be good. I guess you’ll be able to read my review soon. 😉

A Romantic Ace

42115981. sy475 Last year I actually forgot to mention an aro/ace rep and I was very shocked to discover that I didn’t even realize it. *shame on me* Maybe it’s because aro/ace reps are still so rare and it’s not easy to find them. I heard that „Loveless“ by Alice Oseman has an aro/ace rep though and it’s actually one of the few Oseman books I still haven’t read. XD I’m definitely going to read this as soon as I get my hands on a library copy.

One big Family

40495957. sy475

I’ll go with the same answer like last year because „Heartstopper“ is still the first graphic novel that comes to mind when I think about a book that features many LGBTQ+ characters. Charlie, Nick, Tao, Elle, Darcy, Tara and even their teachers are all so awesome and everyone in this series is queer af! *lol* I just love it! ❤ If any of you know another book that features that many LGBTQ+ characters please let me know! I’d love to read it!

Sapphic Love

52757526. sx318 sy475

I already said it last year and I’ll say it again: The world needs more f/f couples in books!! Like seriously! There are so many m/m couples I could have thought of but I had a really tough time to think of an f/f couple. Even more important: An f/f couple I can actually ship! Because let’s be honest here f/f couples are so damn rare and the ones that appeared in books didn’t persuade me … not at all! It’s like the litarary world doesn’t know how to write cute and adorable f/f ships. One ship however totally persuaded me! Sunati and Austen from „Always Human“ were the most adorable f/f couple I ever came across and I was totally blown away by this amazing webcomic! I can totally recommend it because the drawings are so colourful and awesome as well! So if you haven’t read this one already: DO IT! *lol*

Boys Love

32768522

Since I cursed myself for inventing this prompt last year I’ll go with another one of my favourite m/m OTPs here and this time around it’s Simon and Baz! Because they are too damn adorable and everyone who read „Carry On“ knows how awesome this ship is! *lol* The cuteness factor of those two is just off the charts and I love them so damn much I can’t even! ADKFKASFDLAJSDFKASDFJASDJFASKF! ❤

Side Kick

43822024

Jerico Soberanis!!! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Jeri so much!!! ❤ And I’m still a little bit bitter about the fact that Jeri was introduced into the series so late because I loved her/him! Jerico is gender fluid and definitely one of the best side characters I ever read about! I loved that Jeri was so compassionate, loyal, honourable, kind, wise and beautiful!! I can’t help but wish there would have been an entire book just about Jerico. *lol* Such an intriguing and charming personality! I’m still besotted with her/him. XD

Stealing the show

23437156

Of all the couples in „Six of Crows“ Wylan and Jesper were my favourite one! I mean I don’t even know why I shipped them so damn hard but *lol* they were just too cute. Wylan is such a precious cinnamon roll and Jesper had that chaotic yet confident attitude going on. *lol* When they were around each other they were both shy though and ahhhh I just loved their interactions so much. ❤

Strong Beliefs

28919058. sy475

I’m always trying to bring rather unknown books to your attention and I think „Autoboyography“ fits the bill perfectly. Well, at least I didn’t see a lot of people talk about it and since this book was so good and caused me to cry like a baby… Well, just read it! Sebastian Brother broke my heart and I loved Tanner! I think I’ll never get over that scene with Sebastian and Tanner’s mom and I’ll always suffer with Sebastian. T_T Ahh my heart is breaking and mending once again.

Rainbows everywhere

48849624. sy475

This is one of the most beautiful and unapologetic LGBTQ+ covers I ever saw! I mean from the strong and bright colours to the flowers and the fact that you can even see Felix’s surgery scars this is just: WOW!!! ❤ Not to mention the plot of this book! Felix is black, queer and transgender and as far as I could read from the blurb this is a story about self-discovery, identity and first love. I’m so ready to read this!!!

Future Generations

57006689. sy475
I was lucky enough to get an ARC for this because „If This Gets Out“ will only get out in December 2021! And I absolutely can’t wait to dive into this book! I mean it’s about a boyband and two of the members fall in love after years of spending time together! They become an actual ship and as a BTS shipper (I ship them all as friends though. Well almost all, I can’t help but actually ship Taekook because ARGH!! Taekook make it really hard not to ship them romantically. *lol*) I just can’t help but be ready for this book! XD We’re talking an actual and confirmed fictional boyband ship here!!! ADFKLASDFKASDFJASDKFASDJ! I CAN’T WAIT TO READ THIS! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Great Book Quotes

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is:  Book Quotes that Fit X Theme (Pick any theme you want, i.e., motivational quotes, romantic dialogues, hunger-inducing quotes, quotes that fill you with hope, quotes on defeating adversity, quotes that present strong emotions, healing, etc. and then select quotes from books that fit that theme.)

Okay, I decided to go for great book quotes here because there are so many and I love quotes no matter if they are serious or funny! ;-P They are just great quotes and fit no particular theme though. So I guess you might say this is my somewhat own spin on this topic. *lol*

1.) “The heart is an arrow. It demands aim to land true.” – „Six of Crows“ by Leigh Bardugo

23437156

I remember reading „Six of Crows“ for the very first time and I was so thrilled by all the amazing banter and the great quotes. Leigh Bardugo wrote a masterpiece with this duology (that’s going to be a trilogy at some point!) and some of the quotes she came up with are epic and will be remembered for ages! Also when I saw that they used some of the quotes as the titles for the episodes of the „Shadow and Bone“ Netflix series I was totally over the moon! ❤

2.) “Kiss me again,” he says, drunk and foolish. “Kiss me until I am sick of it.” – „The Wicked King“ by Holly Black

26032887. sy475

Okay, but seriously, Cardan’s quotes in this series and his attitude are one of a kind and I just couldn’t get enough of this faerie! I’m such a sucker for Cardan and when I wrote my „The Wicked King“ review I said he could easily be the 8th member of BTS. *lol* Big mistake! Now I can’t unthink it anymore and whenever I picture Cardan in my mind I see V now. Haha! Honestly though! Tae when he wears those golden contact lenses and has dark hair?! *screams in Cardan*

3.) ”War doesn’t determine who’s right. War determines who remains.” – „The Poppy War“ by R.F. Kuang

35068705

There are so many amazing quotes in „The Poppy War“ it’s really hard to pick just one, but after thinking about it for a while I decided to go with this one. It’s very true and when I read it in the book this really hit me. For me „The Poppy War“ was quite a challenging book because at some points I actually had to put it aside in order to digest what I read. Not gonna lie, I’m still not over a lot of the things that happened in here and I’m also still working on finding the courage to read book two.

4.) ”Fear was Can’t.
Fear was Won’t.
But fear wasn’t ever a choice.” – „Darkdawn“ by Jay Kristoff

52783987. sy475

Fear is a recurring topic in „The Nevernight Chronicles“ and it’s like a thread that’s running through the entire trilogy. There’s a lot of discussion about fear and the different shades it can come in, as well as how it motivates, paralyzes or inhibits us and guides our actions. I always like things like this in my books so I really enjoyed that Jay Kristoff addressed this as a topic in his books.

5.) “The trouble with denial is that when the truth comes, you aren’t ready.” – „We Are Okay“ by Nina LaCour

28243032

This was one of the few grief reps I had the pleasure to read and I really liked it. A LOT! Nina LaCour is such a skilled writer and she conveys the different emotions of grief so well. Plus everything she wrote in here is true and that really hit me in the feels. If you’re interested in a good grief rep and haven’t read this book yet I can totally recommend it!

6.) ”Asking to hold a musician’s instrument is roughly similar to asking to kiss a man’s wife. Nonmusicians don’t understand. An instrument is like a companion and a lover.“ – „The Name of the Wind“ by Patrick Rothfuss

186074

And here we go with another book that’s full of great quotes! Today I decided to chose the one about music instruments because it resonated so much with me when I read it. *lol* I feel exactly the same way about my bass and guitar and whenever someone wants to touch them I’ve to suppress the urge to clutch them. XD Also I agree: an instrument is really like a companion and a lover. *lol*

7.) ”My words are unerring tools of destruction, and I’ve come unequipped with the ability to disarm them.“ – „The Raven Boys“ by Maggie Stiefvater

17675462. sy475

I feel this quote on so many levels it’s not normal anymore. There are often times in my life when I feel exactly the same way Gansey feels while he says that. Sometimes we just can’t seem to be able to choose the right words and no matter how much we try, they still come out wrong and we’re misunderstood. I love this quote so much and I think about it often so it definitely had to land in here! XD

8.) ”Your love is worthless. It’s your hate I need.” – „King of the Dark“ by Ariana Nash

54359996. sy475

Vasili’s words are so ruthless and cruel, yet this quote has some unexplainable allure for me. *lol* I can’t really describe it but something resonated with me when I read it. Maybe it’s because I’m a person that believes that love can conquer everything and to hear that he doesn’t want love but hate instead is oddly fascinating? It implies that hate is the stronger emotion, but I think Vasili will stand corrected by the end of that trilogy. Or well, at least I hope he will. *lol*

9.) ”Listen and learn it, learn to tell it, and tell it to teach it.” – „A Charm of Finches“ by Suanne Laqueur

33299920. sx318

I think this is a great motto to live by and just one of the many reasons why I loved „A Charm of Finches“ so much! This book is really great and it tackles so many tough topics I had to cry mulitple times while I read it. Yet at the same time it’s one of the most beautiful books I ever read as well. Suanne!!! Damn why do you write such great books? XD My emotions are still all over the place!

10.) ”Don’t let him escape!” said Mum. “This could be your only chance at securing a spouse!” – „Radio Silence“ by Alice Oseman

41827561. sy475

I had to laugh so hard when I read this in „Radio Silence“! Frances’s mother was such a great character and I really love that parents are always an important part in Alice Oseman’s books. Unlike in other YA books they actually play an active role in their childrens lives and I think we definitely need more reps like that!

Rankenzeile

So what about you? Which kind of quote theme did you chose for this „Top Ten Tuesday“ topic? Did you like the ones I chose and if yes which one was your favourite? Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you enjoy them too? Are you planning to read some of them?

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always try to stay healthy and safe!

The Winter Wonderland Book Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

I was tagged for this by Juli @ Ich Lese last summer so I thought it would be fitting to do this tag now that it’s almost summer again. I know, I know, my brain works in mysterious ways sometimes. ;-P I could have done that in winter too, but nah. Where’s the fun? XD Anyway, as it seems this tag originated from Tracy at Truffle’s Literary Wonders so a huge thanks to Tracy for creating this tag. =) Also THANK YOU (this time actually in capital letters *lol*) to Juli for thinking of me when she did that tag! If you don’t know Juli’s blog already make sure to check it out! It’s a really lovely page and Juli has interesting content!

This said let’s have some fun and go for the answers! 😉

One: What book is so happy and so sweet that it just warms your heart?

32768522

Carry On – Rainbow Rowell

Just in case you didn’t already know this: I hug this book like a pillow before I fall asleep! *lol* No, seriously, a pillow is more comfortable but I just love this book so much! ❤ Whenever I think about Baz and Simon my heart gets all warm and soft and „Carry On“ never fails to make me happy! It’s just too sweet and the MCs are A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E! If you haven’t read this yet, you’re clearly missing out! ;-P


Two: What’s your favourite book with a white cover?

13449693

The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater

Was I even supposed to think of another book here? *lol* All four books of „The Raven Cycle“ have a white background and this series is one of my all time favourites! I just love all those four boys and I can’t get enough of them. I love this series and it’s characters so much it’s not normal anymore! ❤ So yep, I’ll always go with „The Raven Boys“ here! XD


Three: You’re sitting in a nice, comfortable chair with a cup of hot chocolate. What monster book are you reading?

34347493

The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss

This book is one of the biggest I ever read and I loved every second of it. I think I even read it in winter and mostly on cozy nights at home. Kvothe is one hell of a fine character and I love him so much! Seriously, he’s exactly the kind of hero I love in my books. So no wonder I ate this up like a pile of tasty pancakes. *lol* But seriously, if you’ve never heard of this book and never read it: Do yourself a favour and read it now! 😉


Four: It’s snowing outside and you decide you want to have a snowball fight. What fictional character do you want to have this snowball fight with?

7171637. sy475

The Infernal Devices – Cassandra Clare

Ohhh I’d be so ready for a snowball fight with Will and Jem! Just imagine all the banter and how fun it would be? They are my favourite shadowhunter duo and something ordinary like a snowball fight would be already amazing! ❤ Ahh why did you make me think of this. I want to go for a snowball fight with them now! XD

Five: Sadly, your campfire is dying. What last few chapters of a book would you throw in the fire to revive it and keep yourself warm?

52518647. sx318 sy475

Imagine Me – Tahereh Mafi

Just chapters? Can I throw the entire book in the fire? *lol* Because quite honestly the idea of throwing this into a fire was the only thing that got me through this book. XD Sure, there were a couple of nice moments but mostly I just wanted to shred it into little tiny pieces and be done with it. Wow, I finished this a while ago but as it seems I’m still salty! Haha!

Six: What book do you love so much that you would buy another copy of it to give to someone as a Christmas gift (or any gift really) to inspire them to start reading?

865293

The Lies of Locke Lamora – Scott Lynch

I really enjoyed this when I read it for the first time and I actually got it as a Christmas gift for one of my besties. She reads a lot of fantasy books so I figured that one would be a great choice for her. Especially because Locke Lamora and his band of Gentleman bastards is awesome!


Seven: Who do you tag?

I tag:
Mayu @ Bookshelf Life
Anna @ Anna’s Book Nook
Riddhi @ Whispering Stories
Sabrina @ Notes from a Paper Plane Nomad
Maya @ Her Bookish Desires
Rania @ Rania’s Rambling Reads

As always you don’t have to do the tag but I’m sure it would be fun to read your answers! 😀

Rankenzeile

For some reason I think I enjoyed this even more because I did it in spring. *lol* Do you agree with any of my choices and which book would you throw in the fire to revive it? (Very curious about that one. XD) It as fun to do this and I’m looking forward to read your answers! Thanks once again to Juli for tagging me. ❤

And as always: Take care! And stay healthy and safe!

„The School for Good and Evil“ Book Tag

Hey there, my lovelies!

It’s tag time and today I’ll go for a special one! Sabrina created this tag a while ago and I thought now that I finially read the first book I might as well go for it! 😉 I’m sure everyone who knows Sabrina also knows that she’s obsessed with ‘The School for Good and Evil’ series by Soman Chainani  and so it’s no surprise she was inspired enough to actually go for her own tag! First of all I want to say: THANK YOU, Sabrina!!! Because I feel really honored that you considered me worthy enough to tag me. And secondly I need to tell you how AMAZING those prompt graphics are! Like OMG! I’m in awe. ❤ This said, let’s do this! 😀 

Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post!
  • Link to the original tag’s creator: Sabrina @ Notes From a Paper Plane Nomad! Please credit if using these graphics, these eyeballs didn’t dry out squinting at a screen for nothing 👀
  • Pick a book that fits each prompt.
  • Tag whoever, as many or as few as you like!
  • Post these rules and list of prompts in your tag post. If you copy-paste the rules, it should automatically pingback to me so I’ll see your tag post!
 
32768522

Ahh I can already tell that Sabrina will like that choice *lol*. I’ll go with „Carry On“ here because I really never would have expected to love this book so much! I went into this expecting some sort of Harry Potter fanfic and what I got was so much more!! ❤ Simon and Baz are the best and I just adore this book!!! Also aside from the obvious points it has absolutely nothing in common with HP! XD

41827561. sy475

I think „Radio Silence“ definitely fits that bill. It was so beautiful to see how the friendship between Frances and Aled gave them the courage to be who they truly are! ❤ It enabled them to embrace their true selves and made them so much braver than they would have been on their own. I just loved their character arcs and I really, really want their clothes and Aled’s hair! *lol*

48721348

I’m only about 40% into the book but I love it already!! „The Starless Sea“ is probably the embodiment of a unique and unforgettable book and I love it with every fibre of my heart! Erin Morgenstern’s imagination is epic and I really hope she’ll write even more magical books. They are all so mysterious, mesmerising, beautiful and whimsical! 

39679076

Another book I’m currently reading: „House of Salt and Sorrows“. It’s some sort of „The Worn-Out Dancing Shoes“ retelling and I’m enjoying it immensely! I mean the original fairy tale already had some sort of dark edge to it, but I think Erin A. Craig lifted it to an entirely different level. This is dark and creepy and I’m so here for it. XD

41150487. sy475

Since I already used „Carry On“ I’ll go for „Red, White & Royal Blue“ this time around! Henry and Alex were so damn adorable and Henry is the most precious and sweetest thing! ❤ I love this prince and it’s no wonder Alex fell so hard for him. RWRB was one of the best bookish experiences ever and I still think it’s an amazing and hopeful book. 😀

34076952

I don’t read many collections or anthologies but „The Language of Thorns“ was a really great collection of short stories. I loved that they were all so dark and cruel, just like the old fairy tales we all know and grew up with. Leigh did an amazing job with this book and the drawings only made this even better. I can totally recommend this if you want to read modern fairy tales. XD

29749098

The last girl gang I read about and loved was the one from Sarah J. Maas’s „Catwoman“! I swear Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and Catwoman were such a great trio! *lol* They certainly gave Batwing a run for his money and I loved their friendship even though they had quite a few arguments. XD Now that I think about it I’ve to say that there need to be more girl gangs in books. I mostly know mixed bookish squads but almost no girl gang. 

36373825. sy475

Is it weird to say „Fence“? *lol* It’s one of the few collaborations I know about and C.S. Pacat works with Joana LaFuente, Johanna the Mad and Jim Campbell so there are definitely a lot of people involved in this graphic novel. 😉 Plus all those boys are so sweet! I can’t wait to read how it’s going to continue!

40874032. sy475

„Vicious“ by V.E. Schwab! Don’t tell me you didn’t see that one coming! XD I mean Victor and Eli are the embodiment of complex villains and I just adore Victor so damn much! ❤ This man is dangerous but also hot as hell and he has feelings even though they are buried deep. *lol* Ahh I just love Victor Vale! Period!

49679656. sy475 „The Impossible Boy“! I’ll never get tired of gushing about this book and how important it was for me to read it! I didn’t even know I needed this book until I read it and I’m so glad I stumbled over it. It helped me to accept myself and to be who I truly am and it came at the right time in my life. So I’ll always be grateful Anna Martin wrote this!
5107

At the risk of feeling the wrath of many readers who love this book to bits and pieces: „The Catcher in the Rye“! I just couldn’t read this book. I mean I did read it, but it was pure torture! *lol* I have no idea why so many people love it and it was the favourite of my English teacher which was the main reason I gave it a try. Whatever the magic of this book, it was totally lost on me. Sorry! 

 

45158895. sy475

I can’t remember ever being as stressed by a book as I was when I read „Muse of Nightmares“. Seriously, the entire book had me at the edge of my seat and whenever I thought it couldn’t get any worse, it just got … well worse. *lol* Laini Taylor killed me with this and my stress level was off the charts! >_< I’m still recovering from reading „Muse of Nightmares“ which is the main reason I haven’t posted a review yet. I need to calm down first. XD

Rankenzeile

I tag…

Of course you don’t have to do the tag if you don’t want to, it would make me happy though. *makes huge puppy eyes* *lol* And if you’re worried you might be spoiled for the series, Sabrina said it’s spoiler free. 😉

I hope you enjoyed reading through the tag! I definitely had a lot of fun doing it!

This said: Take care and stay healthy! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Make Me Smile

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: Books That Make Me Smile (For any reason! Maybe tell us why? Submitted by Julia @ pagesforthoughts)

Rankenzeile

1.) Carry On – Rainbow Rowell

32768522

I cuddle this book when I sleep!! *lol* So it should be no surprise that it makes me smile! ❤ But seriously, Baz and Simon are everything and they are so fluffy and cute I can’t help but smile whenever I see this book at the library or at the book store. Just to know this exists and other people might read it makes me already so happy. (Yes, if you haven’t figured it out by now I’m Snowbaz trash and I’m not ashamed of it! *lol* 😛 )

2.) Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli

19547856

This book was so much fun and since Simon is probably the most relatable character ever I love it with all my heart! Plus all the HP references and the dialogues and the friendship/family dynamics, Simon and Blue’s e-mails?! Simon being such an adorable nerd! I smile just thinking of it! ❤

3.) An Exaltation of Larks – Suanne Laqueur

32504400. sy475

I’ll never get tired of telling you how awesome this book is!!! The banter and the conversations are perfection, the characters are multilayered and amazing! The story is … I really have no words to describe my love for this! My heart is so full whenever I think about „An Exaltation of Larks“ and I didn’t even finish it yet! I feel as much love for this as I feel for „The Raven Boys“ and you all know how deeply and unconditionally I love them! My heart aches when I smile – It’s THAT kind of smile!

4.) Percy Jackson and basically every Uncle Rick book!

28187

The mere thought of Uncle Rick is already enough to make me smile. XD His books are always funny and I love his humour and sarcasm. No matter which kind of series he writes they are always a nice adventure and his books never cease to amaze me. Plus they make me smile A LOT! I just love Uncle Rick’s characters. 😀

5.) Harry Potter – J.K. Rowling

49774

This is the slow sort of smile that involuntarily tugs at the corners of your lips whenever you think about your childhood. I was the generation that grew up with HP and I read the first book when I was eleven. When I was 19 the last one came out so you might as well say that HP was my childhood and you wouldn’t be wrong with that. This series is like an old friend I’m always glad to see again and just like I do with friends I always give it a radiant smile. 😉

6.) The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater

17675462. sy475

Those boys are my bookish family and I’d die for them! ❤ My love for this series is not from this world and I’m hopelessly, madly and deeply in love with all of those characters. Whenever I sit on my chaise longue and look at my book shelf my gaze comes to a rest on „The Raven Boys“ and I smile. I’ll never stop loving those boys. NEVER!!!

7.) The Song of Achilles – Madeline Miller

11250317

If we’re already at describing smiles this one is the kind of sad smile that quirks your lips while tears are steaming down your face. This book broke me in the best way possible and even after finishing it two years ago I still feel raw whenever I think about it. To see it in the shelves of my library gives me an odd sense of happiness and I guess I’ll always feel melancholic when I see it. Such a beautiful book! T_T

8.) Red, White & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston

41150487. sy475

Okay, RWRB made me laugh so hard it’s impossible not to list it here! Whenever I look at it I remember the „turkey scene“ and it has me laughing once again. *lol* This book was so refreshing and funny and I just lived and breathed for the family and friendship dynamics. Also RWRB gave me hope! I wish everyone would be as open-minded as the characters in here and I’d so help to support Alex’s mum! ❤ She was amazing! They all were.

9.) The Little Witch – Otfried Preußler

316804

This smile comes with childhood memories! =) I remember asking my grandma and mum to read this to me because I really loved „The Little Witch“. This story was just too cute and the little witch was kinda relatable. XD I think I really need to reread this with my child. ❤

10.) Clockwork Angel – Cassandra Clare

7171637. sy475

I just love this series! And basically every single one of Cassandra Clare’s books. They feel like home and I adore the characters so much. Especially the three MCs of this series. Jem, Will and Tessa will always make me smile and I love how much they love each other. This is a love triangle done right and ahh the feels! XD Those three love each other deeply and it’s so beautiful it makes me smile. 😀

Rankenzeile

Which books make you smile?  Do we have some in common? Do you also think that there are different kinds of smiles and that not all of them are happy? What were or would have been your book choices?

Talk to me and let me know! 😉

The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Character Book Tag

Graphics by May @ Forever and Everly

I saw this awesome tag at May’s page (Forever and Everly) and immediately wanted to do it. Hell, I would have even done it without being tagged but my amazing friend Sabrina @ Notes From A Paper Plane Nomad knows me too well and tagged me before I even knew it. *lol* So thank you sooo much for thinking of me! ❤

As May already mentioned in her blog post it’s not necessary to have read any of the books before you do this tag. All the prompts are spoiler-free! 😉 And now to the fun part! YAY! As a huge Percy Jackson fan I can’t wait to do this! XD

RULES

  • Thank the person who tagged you and link to their post.
  • Link to the original creator: May @ Forever and Everly! Please note that she made the artwork/graphics, if using them.
  • Match books with the given prompts.
  • Tag however many people as wanted!
  • Copy-paste the rules and list of prompts.

1 percy

33536168

I could have chosen so many great books to be my „Percy Jackson“ of 2020. „Nevernight“, „A Darker Shade of Magic“, „Scythe“ or „The Gilded Wolves“ they would all qualify for it, but I’m going for „The Impossible Boy“ here because I loved this to bits and pieces. Yes, I’m totally biased when it comes to this book, but for the first time in my reading life I felt at least halfway represented and this made me so happy! ❤ I just couldn’t put this book down until I finished reading it and it was such a carefully written and sensitive book. 🙂

2 annabeth

25524728

I’m going with „Illuminae“ here because this series completely took me by surprise. The format of those books is crazy and the action, the plot, the characters, the ideas and scientific facts behind it all… I was and still am totally blown away by the genius that is Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff! XD

3 grover

865293

I still think that  „The Lies of Locke Lamora“ is way too under-hyped! I mean this series is amazing!! I love the Gentleman Bastards and Scott Lynch is such a genius for thinking up all those plot ideas! There are so many details that come into play at the end and just wow! I have no idea how he does it but his books are brilliant! 😀

4 luke

29386918. sy475

At the risk of disgruntling a lot of fans: I really though I’d hate „Wildcard“ by Marie Lu. I loved „The Young Elites“ and decided to read „Warcross“ just to find out that it wasn’t really for me. I had quite a few issues with the first book and was really, really sceptical when I started to read „Wildcard“, but OMG I actually ended up enjoying it. Which obviously makes me an odd duck again because apparently everyone else loved „Warcross“ and was disappointed by „Wildcard“. *lol*

5 chiron

17675462. sy475

Ahh that’s a tough one. I think it’s a tie between „Harry Potter“ and „The Raven Cycle“. I love both series so much and whenever I reread them it feels like coming back home. Since HP is still more known than „The Raven Boys“ I’ll chose TRC for this one though. 😉 Gotta support your less known favourites. XD

6 tyson

25494343

There are so many amazing books that deal with sibling relationships but I think this time around I’ll go for a book not a lot of people would think of. „Lady Midnight“ because the Blackthorns are #siblinggoals!!! I love each and every single member of this family and Helen, Mark, Julian, Ty, Livvy, Dru and Tavvy are EVERYTHING!!! ❤ Those siblings love each other so much it always makes me weep! *sniff*

7 thalia

41998311. sy475

I think I’ll go with „Dry“ here because it was the last book I read that managed to keep me glued to the pages. I always read about 5 different books at the same time and therefore it usually takes me quite a while to finish the books I read. With „Dry“ I was done in a week and whenever I stopped reading I noticed that a lot of time had passed. *lol*

8 nico

13516154

 „The Song of Achilles“ *sighs* I think so far I know no one who didn’t like this book and it’s definitely one of my favourites! ❤ Madeline Miller’s writing style is so amazing and I love this book with all my heart! Patroclus and Achilles were the best and I’ll never get over them! T_T

9 calypso

49774

Harry Potter!! I hope that I’d have all the other six books with me on that island too though! Would be a shame just to be able to read only the first one. *lol* But the bookish gods wouldn’t be so cruel to leave me with only the first book, right? 😛

10 rachel

17699853

I think there’s no way this won’t be a five star read for me. So far I loved all of Cassie’s books and I can’t wait to dive into this series! I mean the children of Will Herondale?!! I’m so going to love James, I already know it. And his parabatai and I’ll be intrigued by Cordelia and OMG!! I’m so hyped for this I can’t even! =))) I need to read this asap. *lol*

11 jason

45044785

Oh gods, don’t ask me a question like that! I’d even take two hits by a brick just to get my fingers on a copy of „The Silvered Serpents“! I’ve been dying to read this book ever since I finished „The Gilded Wolves“ and even joined NetGalley in the hope to get an ARC. Unfortunately NetGalley declined my request and I’m still devastated! I JUST WANT TO READ THIS FREAKING BOOK! So, so badly! T_T

12 piper

13555073

My bestie has been raving about this series whenever we went to the library and I got curious. About two years ago I picked up the first book „The Screaming Staircase“ and was hooked! 😀 I just loved those kids and the world they live in! Stroud wrote such a unique story and the characters grew on me! I’m pretty sure I would have loved this even more as a kid! ❤

13 leo

Red, White & Royal BlueI just realized that I don’t read a lot of funny books. *lol* But I think I’ll go with „Red, White & Royal Blue“ here because this book didn’t only make me smile but also managed to make me laugh out loud which is kind of a feat! At least I usually don’t make it a habit to laugh like a madman when I’m in public transport. 😛 I loved this book so much and I’m sure I’ll reread it one day. 😀

14 hazel

305234

Does 2007 count as old? *lol* Since it’s been 13 years I’ll just say „yes“ and go with „Wicked Lovely“. It’s the first book in Melissa Marr’s „Wicked Lovely Series“ and I still love this series so much! ❤ This was the first time I read about cruel, cunning and wicked faeries and I was so ready for it! XD I’ll always love Irial and Niall! My two precious boys!

15 frank

The Gilded Wolves (The Gilded Wolves, #1)Since I already mentioned „The Song of Achilles“ earlier I’ll go with „The Gilded Wolves“ for this prompt. I really, really, really didn’t want to reach the end of this book. The longer I read the more I dreaded the ending and urgh…. now I’ve to wait until book two comes out and I just hope that the ending of „The Silvered Serpents“ won’t kill me again. >_<

16 reyna

22571663

I wouldn’t say everyone hates it because there are some really dedicated fans out there but „Captive Prince“ is definitely one of those books that’s more than just a little controversial. You either hate this series or you love it and personally I belong to the latter category. I got a lot of hateful comments on my review for being a fan of this series but oh well I can deal with the haters. 😛 I still stand by my opinion: I love Laurent and Damen. Period!

17 octavian

7631105

Okay, first of all I’d like to say that I love the idea of this punched teddybear! *lol* It’s soo fitting! XD And then I’d like to mention that I absolutely hated „The Scorch Trials“. This might be a super controversial opinion but from book two on „The Maze Runner“ series was such a disappointment for me. If it wouldn’t have been for Newt and Minho I wouldn’t even have bothered to finish this series. >_<

18 percabeth

17378527

Ahh this is such a tough one! There are so many great romances out there and I wish I could choose them all! But I think even though I might repeat myself here I’ll go with „The Raven Cycle“. And nope, I’m not talking about Blue and Gansey here. I’m talking about Adam and Ronan. ❤ Those two… I loved that super slow burn, how they respect each other, all those tender gestures and soft moments. I swear I must have died about a thousand deaths by just reading Ronan’s thoughts about Adam’s hands. I think I’m dying once again just thinking about it! T_T Ahh my heart!

This was so much fun! I love May for creating this tag! Oh, well who am I kidding? I love May with and without this tag. *lol* 😛 She’s the best! ❤

I hope you guys will have fun doing this tag too! XD As always you don’t have to do it, but I’d really love to read your answers!

This said: Take care and stay healthy and safe!
