Booktuber Lovin Tag

Hello fellow bookworms!

If you have read my post about my favourite booktubers you may know I watch every single video that Julia Sapphire publishes, she is one of my favourite booktubers and I believe she deserves all the recognition in the world. She recently created a tag called “Booktuber Lovin Tag” and I thought about doing it here even though I was not tagged.

Here they are, the booktubers I spend my days watching videos from:

The Playslist Book Tag

 

 

Hello, fellow bookworms.

Today, I’m going to do an exciting tag, the playlist book tag sums up two of my favourite things ever: books and music. I listen to music every day, I literaly breathe music, I did a post only dedicated to my favourite music at the moment.

Let’s skip the babbling and get to the point, here are the songs that remind me a lot of books I’ve read.

“Cut back down to my knees
Gotta get back, gotta get free
Cut back down to my knees
Lean back now, lean back and breathe”

 

 

 

 

I am going to be 100% honest with you and tell you that there is not a reason for me to relate this song to The Raven Boys other than I heard it first in a fan video about the opening credits of this series’ adaptation. Fan Video link.

“And I don’t really care
If nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got
A lot of fight left in me”

“The more I stray the less I fear
And the more I reach the more I fade away
The darkness right in front of me
Oh it’s calling out and I won’t walk away”

“A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they’ve got planes and trains and cars
I’d walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
And we’ll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way”

“I’ll hold you when things go wrong
I’ll be with you from dusk till dawn
I’ll be with you from dusk till dawn
Baby, I am right here”

“I’m headed straight for the castle
They wanna make me their queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean

I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut”

Hogwarts House Book Recommendations // Gryffindor

Hello fellow Hogwarts’ students.

I know that sometimes it may be difficult to look at all those books at the school library and be overwhelmed by the variety of stories in front of you. Fear no more, I’ll be guiding you through some books that match your personality.

Today, i’ll be recommending books to my fellow house mates, Gryffindors.

It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.

91wex42edil Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he’ll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist:

Break into the notorious Ice Court
(a military stronghold that has never been breached)

Retrieve a hostage
(who could unleash magical havoc on the world)

Survive long enough to collect his reward
(and spend it)

Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done – and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable – if they don’t kill each other first.

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”
It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school.

Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resen

ts all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before.

Summer Reader Book Tag

Summer. Probably my least favorite season. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer vacation but as I am a person that doesn’t stand hot weather, summer is not for me.

But there is one thing that I love about summer: even though it is so hot I can barely exist, I have plenty of time to read, my summer vacation started a month ago and I already read 7 books (now that I think about it is not that great but is better than before 😶).

Today, I’ll be doing another tag, called the Summer Reader Book Tag, this tag was created by islandOFdri, you should check her video out, you can find her on youtube.

  • Lemonade: Pick a book that started off bitter but got better.

I’ve Got Your Number is a book that I took a long time to get into. When I finished The Sea Of Monsters, I could feel that I was falling deep into a big reading slump so I just decided to read a funny contemporary to kick it off.

For me, this book from Sophie Kinsella was slow in the beginning, that lead me to think that this was a shitty book but suddenly things started to happend and I was sucked into the story and overall it was just a super funny and cute contemporary.

  • Golden Sun: Pick a book that made you smile beyond compare.

A Court Of Mist and Fury was probably the awesomest book I read this year. It was a book that me smile beyond compare, i cried too, but I smiled so much whenever the Inner Circle was together, they are so funny, especially Cassian and Mor.

  • Tropical Flowers: Pick a book set in a foreign country.

Name a book, I bet it is not set in Portugal, I have read few books that take place in my country, so I’m going to take this question to another level:

Tropical Flowers: Pick a book set in a foreign world.

A Court Of Thorns and Roses series, what else could I choose? Despite the war, Prythian is where I would like to exist, I would be the person that would belong to a court but live her life traveling from court to court to keep the peace between them, besides I would be able to connect with all of the High Lord’s  (except Tamlin, I just want to punch Tamlin, right now).

I took a quiz and it seems that I belong to the Dawn Court, which one do you belong in? Leave a comment letting me know.

  • Tree Shade: Pick a book in which a mysterious or shady character was first introduced.

For this I’ll choose The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve got to admit that I didn’t like this new mysterious character at first, but as I went more into the book, this character gained a place in my heart and his actions showed that he deserved it. Personally, I loved that the author didn’t focus only on the younger romances, she made this as realistic as it could be.

(If you haven’t read this series, what are you doing reading this? Get out of here, run to the nearest bookstore and buy The Raven Boys, you’ll not regret it.) 😉😉

  • Beach Sand: Pick a book that was grainy, and the plot barely developed

I actually don’t remember reading this book that much, I remember what it was about and that I liked it but I think not many things happend in it, An Abundance Of Katherines it is probably my least favorite book written by John Green, I think it was funny though.

  • Green Grass: Pick character(s) that were full of life, making you smile.

There are so many characters that are awesome answers for this, but I am only going to choose two of them. The first one is Grover from the Percy Jackson series, Grover is just so adorable, he is caring, sensible, connected to the nature and just so happy, it makes me happy all of his jokes and his innocence. The second character is Blue Sargent (The Raven Cycle), the fact that she is different, all of her trees in her room, her home and her family, the way she dresses, the fact that she is full of power, she tranpires life and creativity.

  • Watermelon: Pick a book that had some juicy secrets.

I’ll Give You The Sun is a book involved in secrets, it tells the story of twins, Noah and Jude, each of them caries a secret that can save and destroy the other, they keep it for them and that destroys them and their relacionship. In this book we follow their story as they unravel all the secrets and find their way back to each other.

  • Sun Hat: pick a book that had a vast, big universe/setting.

I was going to answer Harry Potter and that is the obvious answer, but as it’s obvious my answer is a new obsession of mine: Six Of Crows. I love how this book is so complex with all the different places where all of the characters come from and all of the languages they speak, I believe this was the setting for the Grisha Trilogy too, but I don’t quite remember.

  • BBQ: pick a book in which a character was portrayed as a hunk.

I’ll tell you about a series that has a bunch of characters portrayed as a hunk and let me tell you that just like Blue, I sometimes feel like I am in love with all of them: THE RAVEN CYCLE.

I know I’ve already talked about them so much, but I can’t not to, I am in love with that series, I wanted to jump into the third book as soon as I finished The Dream Thieves.

In this series, you’re introduced to 5 main characters: Blue Sargent, Adam Parrish, Ronan Lynch, Richard Gansey III and Noah Czerny, the four guys are the ones that give name to the first book: The Raven Boys, as they the raven boys and since I started this series, I’ve seen all of the boys as hunks.

I found this opening credits for the series the other day and let me just tell you that if this is not the physical representation of The Raven Boys, i don’t know what is.

 

Just to clarify, I need to say that I have no ideia how to talk less in tags, I just ramble in every answer, sorry if this is too long.

Feel free to answer a question in the comments, I would very much like if you did. 😉😉

Love, Eliana.

Booktube-a-thon Day 6

I can’t actually believe that I’ currently on the last day of my first booktube-a-thon and tomorrow is going to be the last day, i upload one of these, can you see the nostalgia??

Booktube-a-thon Day 5

Can you believe that the most wonderful time of the year is coming to an end? I need to wait another year for this… But for now, let’s focus on what’s important: READ, FELLOW BOOK LOVERS.

( This tweet is not an update but this video is so gooood! )

Booktube-A-Thon TBR

Hi fellow booklovers.

I’ve been planning this reading challenge for a while and after many days of indecision, I think I have built my TBR for this year’s Booktube-a-thon.

If you never heard of Booktube-a-thon before it is a reading challenge where people come together to read as many books as they can in one week. During this week they host challenges, giveaways and competitions and many people join booktube-a-thon such as famous booktubers and even authors. This reading challenge was created by Ariel Bisset and you can find more information in the booktube-a-thon youtube channel and website.

Personally, I don’t own a youtube channel, I guess I’m too shy for that, but I want to participate anyways so I’m going to join it. I won’t be reading the book that Ariel picked because it is not published in my language and I can’t find it anywhere.

Here’s my TBR:

1. Read a book with a person on the cover: 

For this one I’m choosing The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, I really enjoyed The Raven Boys but I can’t get attached to the second book in the series for some reason. Since it is booktube-a-thon, I decided I’m going to push through and try to read this book, because I bet that this series is amazing.

5871d6a6ea282ea977033a7144216573

 

2. Read a hyped book:

I am finally giving up and I’ll reading City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare, and I want to read this for 3 reasons: Sebastian Morgenstern (and I got a huge spoiler about him on pinterest just now), I want to read The Infernal Devices and I want to read The Dark Artificies.

4c7a0cc855d5f6b72e31add3adb9c5b0.jpg

 

3. Finish a book in one day:

Random Illustrated Facts  by Mike Lowery was a illustrated book sent to me by Net Galley so I could review it, I’m actually having a bit of a problem with downloading it but I believe this is the one I’m going to read in one day. Besides it must be short and fast paced so I’m really looking forward to reading it.

 

4. Read about a character that is very different from you:

For this, I’m going to choose The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan. Do I need to explain why me and Percy are so different? I mean he fights monsters and gods and I’m on my couch practically all day.

5080222fda132b88cb855293dd2598b8.jpg

 

5. Finish a book completly outdoors:

I hope to get this over as soon as possible because out there is worst than the dessert during the day, I think I’ll burn to death if I step outside, so I’ll be reading The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery (I hope I got that name right). I saw a cartoon when I was a kid about the adventures of the little prince and I believe I’ll really enjoy it.

 

6. Read  a book you bought because of the cover:

10600242

 

 

 

I fell in love with this cover and this is a feminist manifesto, it is called How to be a woman by Caitlin Moran and I hope to read it during Booktube-a-thon.

 

 

 

 

 

7. Read seven books:

I am also planning on continuing to read the Harry Potter series, so I’ll be reading Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire by J.K. Rowling, this doesn’t need introduction, if you don’t know Harry Potter: have you been living under a rock?; if you don’t like Harry Potter, what are you doing with your life?

 


This is my Booktube-a-thon TBR and I really hope that I can finish these 7 books, I probably won’t but I can dream.

Hope you enjoyed this post, if you did check out my other posts.
