I Should Have Read That Book Tag

book

Found this awesome Book Tag on Read With Abi

I have not done a Book Tag this whole year and been waiting for the right time to do so. I’m not going to waste any more time and just get right to it.

A BOOK THAT A FRIEND IS ALWAYS TELLING YOU TO READ

Unfortunately, I don’t have one single friend that reads. I’m that friend that recommends books but they never listen to me and rather play video games.

A BOOK THAT’S BEEN ON YOUR TBR FOREVER, YET YOU STILL HAVENT PICKED IT UP

51eaZ1mO9ML._SX321_BO1,204,203,200_

That would be this lovely gem! I really want to read Circe! It’s been on my TBR list for a very long time, I’ll get to it soon…very soon!

A BOOK IN A SERIES YOU STARTED BUT HAVENT GOTTEN ROUND TO FINISHING YET

fgfgg

That would be Warriors by Erin Hunter. I grew up reading these and unfortunately, I never finished the whole series plus I have to recollect the series on top of that too. I absolutely love these books to this very day and with all these other books coming out I tend to get distracted but I am determined to finish the series.

A CLASSIC YOU’VE ALWAYS LIKED THE SOUND OF, BUT NEVER ACTUALLY READ

To Kill A Mockingbird By Harper Lee, a classic that seems everyone has read but me.

A POPULAR BOOK IT SEEMS EVERYONE BUT YOU HAS READ 

9780008179984

Nevernight By Jay Kristoff! I see this book everywhere! It’s always on Bookstagram and book reviews on book blogs. Looks interesting and I might get my hands on this to add it to my TBR list.

A BOOK THAT INSPIRED A FILM/TV ADAPTION THAT YOU LOVE BUT JUST HAVEN’T READ YET 

Harry Potter! That’s right I have never read Harry Potter but I love the movies. The thing is I am someone who has to read the book first then watch the movie. When the first movie came out my mother had taken me to see the movie and from there on I just watch the movies rather than read the books. I can’t really read the book if I already know what is going to happen or have some knowledge of the story, I like to be surprised and not knowing what’s going to happen because if a new book that I been wanting comes out then I’m going to end up putting the book down and never finished it…you know. So since I missed out on Harry Potter I made sure to read books first then movies!

A BOOK YOU SEE ALL OVER INSTAGRAM  BOOKSTAGRAM BUT HAVENT PICKED UP

91AR3OPVaCL.jpg

Oh yeah, I see this book all over the place right now, it looks and sounds like my type of book. I almost purchased the book today at Target but decided to wait a bit longer.

Happy Reading all! Doing this Book Blog makes me want to read more and more. I feel like I am missing out on some good books here. Let me know what you all think and everyone who reads this is tagged.

Happy Reading!

Blogoween Day 7: They Got My Back

Gi-Zombie-Comic-Wallpapers-8

Blogoween Hosted Today By Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

I have a question here before we start today’s Blogoween. Who here actually reads The Walking Dead comics? I live right across the street from Celestial Comics and they have a pretty big selection of Walking Dead series. I was tempted to get them but the truth is I really don’t like zombies. Nasty creatures whoever thought of them, however, I have watched all the seasons so far besides the newest one that was just added to Netflix. I must say the ONLY reason I’m watching the show is that they have a character that has a TIGER! Now folks, If you been with me since the beginning of my postings then you would know that before I started reading actual stories I was a nerd reading Encyclopedia’s, mainly cat Encyclopedias. So whoever created the character Ezekiel and his Tiger for the zombie apocalypse is a genius! Which leads me to tell you if a zombie apocalypse breaks out the main one that is going to have my back…

 

Ezekiel And Shiva From The Walking Dead

I’m going to count these two as one. Ezekiel knows what he is doing in the Zombie Apocalypse! I would have no fear into this world knowing that these two have my back.

Raven From Heartless By Marissa Meyer

Raven is very important to the team. Flying the skies so high to see what’s up ahead and guide the team the proper path to avoid zombies or at least a huge herd of them.

Inej Ghafa AKA The Wraith From Six Of Crows/ Crooked Kingdom By Leigh Bardugo

Inej is not only good with her balance and ability to take on high-level buildings but she is a master with her knives which leaves her skills to take on zombies.

Daenerys Targaryen AKA Mother Of Dragons From A Game Of Thrones By George R. R. Martin

We need fire and lots of it when it comes to herds of zombies. The Mother Of Dragons does not deal with White Walkers to well since they are a bit more advanced attacking but human zombies are a piece of cake for her and her dragons.

 Legolas From Lord Of The Rings By J. R. R. Tolkien

Skilled with archery, knowledge with creepy/ crazy creatures running around wanting to kill you, and very handsome…anyways Legolas is the cherry on top. When the world is going down you are gonna need him on your side and help guide the way of survival with his experience.

That’s my top five characters that have my back during a Zombie Apocolypse. Trust me when all hell breaks loose you need someone or something in the air to guide your path, you will also need a big cat! Nothing wrong with having a big cat on your side with a dragon that has a lot of fire to give out and kill tons of zombies at once, and a handsome knowledge elf too with an assassin that knows her stuff about knives. I think that pretty much covers everything and who I need to survive.

What do you guys think? Let me know. TTFN.

Blogoween Day 6: Halloween Book’s On My Book Haul List

1ddb742bdc793a93e40590a37526f988

Happy Saturday bookworms. Today is a gloomy day here in Vegas and I can’t get enough of it. Perfect reading and cleaning weather. I have a confession to make! I absolutely love to read but in the past three days, I been addicted to playing Call Of Duty WW2 Hordpoint, Which is zombies running after you and you always have to focus killing the other teammates while holding a certain spot down to earn points. I swore to myself to get back on track tonight and read my current read to have it finished in three days.

Every month I go on a big book haul on the 25th or around that time. This month I will be going on the 24th which is our Book Club meeting at our local Barnes And Noble and that’s when I’ll do my major book shopping. I thought I would share with you guys my Halloweenish books on my list for this month.

the-monkey-s-paw-23

The Monkey’s Paw By W. W. Jacobs

I remember reading this when I was a kid in school and I loved it! I barely remember what happens or the full details but what I do know is that whoever holds the monkey paw you have three wishes…that come with major consequences.

8694522

The Witch’s Daughter By Paula Brackston

9781250118394

The Return Of The Witch By Paula Brackston

miss-peregrine-series.jpeg

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children Series By Ransom Riggs

I think I’m going to leave it at that for this month. I’m not really into scary stories however if it has a great, twisted story, something I was not expecting towards the end then I’m all in for it. If you heard of any of these books let me know. TTFN.

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’d Love To Meet

TTT-NEW

Hosted By That Artsy Reader

Happy Tuesday Bookworms! Another day closer to Halloween and I just couldn’t be more excited for this month. So much to do in so little time. For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Author’s I would like to meet. I’m very excited to discuss this topic and recently put a list together. If only authors came to Vegas more often, You would think they would but it’s either I’m missing out or they are going to some secret spot that I don’t know about. Who knows, but one thing is for sure is that they do seem to attend a lot of book signings in California so lucky me that state is my neighbor. Here are the authors I would love to meet and discuss stories they created and have some tea with that discussion (FACT: I get Starstruck)

MARISSA MEYER

I’m sure you all know Marissa Meyer, you know the one who wrote the Lunar Chronicles, Heartless, and her newest addition Renegades! She is on top of my list and luckily for me, she will be in Los Angles next month doing a book signing just two days before my birthday and I told my boyfriend it’s a must that I attend next month! I really can not miss out on this opportunity. Marissa Meyer here I come!

HOLLY BLACK

Oh yes, you made it on the list just because I read one book, The Cruel Prince and I fell in love right away, therefore Holly is on the list, do I really need to say more!? I’m sure you all would agree with me.

AMANDA FOODY

Her writing is unique to me and I love every second reading her books. I would love to have Mrs.Foody here sign my books and take a Polaroid Picture with me! Sounds creepy? No worries I’m obsessed with my polaroid camera.

LEIGH BARDUGO

I need to meet Leigh Bardugo! I have questions that need answers. Wonderful author, I adore her writing. I feel like we would have a good conversation discussing Six Of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.

TOMI ADEYEMI

Oh yes! I need my Children Of Blood And bone sign and please let’s discuss how wonderful she truly is with her stories. Everything about this author would be a blessing to meet her and get my books sign.

GREGORY MAGUIRE

The one that started the Wicked series. I would need a big fat cup of tea with this meeting. I feel Gregory as a creative imagination with his stories, I love each book he has written therefore I have tons of questions and tons of books that need to be signed from him.

BONUS FEATURE

Yes I know she is an actress, Yes I know she is awesome, and yes I totally froze when I met her. Who am I talking about! I’m talking about Vivica A. Fox. Mrs.Fox was at our local Barnes And Noble this year doing her book signing for her book called Every Day I’m Husting.

I was second in line to have my book signed. My mind was racing on what to say. I didn’t really have much to say, the only thing that was going thru my damn mind was KILL BILL IS AWESOME! That’s the last thing I wanted to say. I mean I knew that I wanted to really say but it was corny as hell, you know “Oh your book is so inspirational, your book made me smile and laugh..blah blah” Nope! I knew she heard it all by others and I didn’t want to add to it. I was stuck and I was out of time. Luckily for me, Mrs. Fox is truly amazing women who take her fans very seriously.

She started the convo and what did she ask me first? Well, basically what everyone talks to me about when they first meet me…I have a huge Rose and Spider tattoo on my neck and yes that caught her attention. Meeting her was truly amazing. Her book was very inspirational and reminds you that it’s okay to work on yourself to get where you want to be and be happy with yourself first before anything else. Highly recommend her book for women who are struggling maybe on finding yourself.

IMG_1514.JPG

My Aunt Nicky on the left, Vivica A. Fox, and me! Yes, of course, I had to take the picture with my Polaroid camera! Old Skool style.

Hope you all in enjoyed this list. Love to hear what everyone thoughts are. Did you meet any of these authors yet? Who do you want to meet?

WITCH: A MAGICAL CHARACTER OR BOOK.

I’m going to give this one to the book Hocus Pocus And The All-New Sequel with Winnie Sanderson as the magical one. I mean she is pretty scary witch if she really was to come to this world.

WEREWOLF: THE PERFECT BOOK TO READ AT NIGHT.

IMG_1509

Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark By Alvin Schwartz

I had this book since I was a child. This book scared me to death and made me stay up all night. Did you all know that they are in the process to make a movie from this spooky book?

FRANKENSTEIN: A BOOK THAT TRULY SHOCKED YOU.

Hocus Pocus And The All-New Sequel By J. W. Jantha. The sequel was not what I was expecting at all.

IMG_1412

THE DEVIL: A DARK, EVIL CHARACTER.

Well considering the title I’m going to dedicate this one to the Devil himself from Midnight With The Devil By Emma Castle. Gosh that was such an epic read!

GRIM REAPER: A CHARACTER THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE DIED.

From Six Of Crows/ Crooked Kingdom Matthias Helvar! I was not expecting it, I loved his character and who he was so much. Why! Why did he have to be the one to go?!!!

ZOMBIE: A BOOK THAT MADE YOU “HUNGRY” FOR MORE.

The Cruel Prince By Holly Black. I seriously need more of it, you have no idea! I’m counting down the days for The Wicked King!

GARGOYLE: A CHARACTER THAT YOU WOULD PROTECT AT ALL COST.

Enne Salta from Ace Of Shades By Amanda Foody all the way! I would be her BFF and show her the city of Sin and protect her from the street lords or anyone who would try to conflict her with sin to keep her an innocent person she was when she entered the city from the beginning. Ohh man I really can’t wait for the second book King Of Fools! I hope Enne hasn’t lost herself.

VAMPIRE: A BOOK THAT SUCKED THE LIFE OUT OF YOU.

One Too Many Lies By L. A. Bowen. At least it was a short story but seriously! It was truly boring.

GHOST: A BOOK THAT STILL HAUNTS YOU.

Heartless By Marissa Meyer. I mean I knew it was coming but not in that way. I thought it was going to be a bit more twisted but it ended in the way I least expected to.

DEMON: A BOOK THAT REALLY SCARED YOU.

Once again Scary Stories By Alvin Schwartz. It really messed me up as a kid, and I honestly haven’t read the stories since I was a kid however now that I am an adult I will be re-reading the stories. May the angels be on my side for this.

SKELTON: A CHARACTER YOU HAVE A BONE TO PICK WITH.

Prince Cardan from The Cruel Prince By Holly Black. Ohh yeah, I want to know what makes you think that you can take your anger on another. He really bugs me.

MUMMY: A BOOK YOU WOULD PRESERVE THROUGHOUT TIME.

My Warrior series By Erin Hunter hands down. I would cherish these lovelies forever and ever. Thanks to these series I developed a severe addiction to reading.

CREEPY DOLL: A COVER TOO SCARY TO LOOK AT.

99284b20-2f49-0134-0aed-0629623c6db9.jpg

The Replacement By Brenna Yovanoff

I never read this book nor do I plan too. The cover of this is creeeeepy!

THE MONSTER MASH.

It’s fun to be with friends on Halloween. Tag your friends!
