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.

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?

Blogoween Day 1: Halloween Creatures Book Tag

screen-shot-2018-09-17-at-10-17-49-pm

Happy October/Blogoween today bookworms! I’m sure we all have been waiting for this day, I know I was. I believe this October is going to be my best this year, I have a lot going on such as designing some Halloween Costumes (Have some pretty interesting things for costumes this year) some spooky haunted houses to attend to, October’s big book haul, and the most anticipating event going to Disneyland for two days for Halloween. But most of all I look forward to posting every day for the Blogoween and also get the opportunity to see other Book Bloggers features.

Today’s first post is The Halloween Creatures Book Tag. Thank you Anthony @ Keep Reading Forward

RULES:

  • Answer all prompts
  • Answer honestly
  • You must tag at least 1 – 13 people
  • Give credit to the creator
  • Have fun

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!

Book Reader Problems Tag

Untitled

Happy Monday everyone. A new day another chapter. Been sewing all day and decided to take a break and post another fun tag for today. I found this lovely Book Tag on Book Filled Brain

Let’s begin this tag!

YOU HAVE 20,000 BOOKS ON YOUR TBR, HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU DECIDE WHAT TO READ NEXT?

It depends on my mood. If I’m feeling like I need a fantasy story or a crazy twisted dark story or even just a chilled relax story. It all depends how I’m feeling..sometimes. Other times if the book has been on the TBR list for a long time then I’ll start reading it.

YOU’RE HALFWAY THROUGH A BOOK AND YOU’RE JUST NOT LOVING IT. DO YOU PUT IT DOWN OR ARE YOU COMMITTED? 

I have never DNF a book before. I’m always committed, I mean I have times, where I’m just thinking to myself or out loud too, where I say I’m not going to finish the book but I always do cause I just want to have hopes that at least in the end it could get better?

THE END OF THE YEAR IS COMING UP AND YOU ARE BEHIND ON YOUR READING CHALLENGE, DO YOU TRY AND CATCH UP? AND IF SO HOW?

Yes and no. Yes, I want to complete my challenge goal but if I’m behind a whole lot then I don’t want to force myself to read more and make myself feel forced to read just for a challenge, takes the fun of reading away for me.

THE COVER OF A SERIES YOU LOVE DO NOT MATCH. HOW DO YOU COPE?

I have no choice but to get over it I guess. But I do believe covers are a huge thing, at least for me.

EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER LOVES A BOOK THAT YOU DO NOT. WHO DO YOU BOND WITH OVER YOUR SHARED FEELINGS?

To the Book Community! Right here on my blog. Someone usually agrees with me here.

YOURE READING A BOOK IN PUBLIC AND YOU START CRYING, HOW DO YOU DEAL?

I don’t read in public! There is a huge reason for it. I can not stand people even more so when I read. There is always someone around that is either on their phones talking around me, someone chewing with their mouths open, kids yelling or crying, or someone staring at me like I’m crazy for holding a book in my hand rather than looking down at my cell phone. The only place I read that is public is my favorite reading cafe but that is it. Nowhere else. Unless I’m on a plane or at the DMV. Also, I will hold back the tears if it was to happen. No one wants to see me cry, I don’t want to see myself cry or anyone cry for that matter.

THE SEQUEL TO A BOOK YOU LOVE JUST CAME OUT BUT YOUVE FORGOTTEN A LOT OF WHAT HAPPENS. ARE YOU GOING TO REREAD IT?

Nope. I’m going to look back at my book reviews here on my blog to freshen up my memory. Plus if I’m reading the sequel that means I like the first book which means I won’t forget what happens.

YOU DONT WANT ANYONE BORROWING YOUR BOOKS, HOW DO YOU POLITELY SAY NO WHEN SOMEONE ASK?

My bestie is the only one that comes over and when she does ask, I say no! Just no or NO WAY! She’s messy and forgets everything and loses everything. It’s okay though because she is my best friend and she knows this, I still love her but my books are my everything.

IMG_0491

IMG_0492.JPG

My bestie to the left who is the computer geek & Me as the book geek. Also, she designed some of my labels for my Bookish Candles!

YOU HAVE PICKED UP AND PUT DOWN 5 BOOKS IN THE LAST MONTH. HOW DO YOU GET OVER THIS READING SLUMP?

I do it by trying to pick up another amazing read to get myself going, If I stay in this slump mode then I’ll never read again.

THERE ARE SO MANY BOOKS COMING OUT THAT YOU ARE DYING TO READ, HOW MANY DO YOU END UP BUYING?

Once a month towards the end of the last week I go on a huge book haul at my local Barnes And Noble (Going tomorrow!) I tend to get anything between 10-20 books. Serious problem? I know my boyfriend tells me all the time.

AFTER YOU PURCHASE ALL THE BOOKS YOU ARE DYING TO READ, HOW LONG DO THEY SIT ON YOUR SHELVES BEFORE YOU GET TO THEM?

Around 6 months to a year, I would say. Depending on what book I purchased. So for example when Wicked King by Holly Black comes out next year I’m automatically going to start reading, no waiting. For others like the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard they are still on my TBR list and it’s been a few months since I purchased the series.

Well, that is all for now. Hope you enjoy my answers and if you wanna chat you know what to do. At the meantime, I’m gonna get back to sewing for a bit before I get into my current read. TTFN.

MERMAID LAGOON – WHO’S YOUR FICTIONAL CHARACTER FROM A BOOK THAT YOU JUST WANT TO DROWN?

20 Questions Book Tag

Untitled

Howdy Bookworms! Here is yet another Book Tag for you. Thank you Flowers In the Brain for tagging me in this lovely Book Tag. Once said and will say it again, Bookworms scouts honor to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. Here we go!

  1. HOW MANY BOOKS IS TOO MANY BOOKS IN A BOOK SERIES?

It would depend on the author for me. If the story is one big adventure and so many characters to get to know and character growth and the writing is well put together in detail then the sky is the limit for me.

2.  HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT CLIFFHANGERS?

Cliffhangers can be good. Sometimes. Hmm.

 

3. HARD COPY OR PAPERBACK?

I’m all in for the hardcovers and here is why. I love how they look on my bookshelf’s and I feel all sorts of good/comfy vibes holding a hardcover book unless I’m reading more then two hours then my wrists start to get sore.

4. FAVORITE BOOK?

  I have a lot of faves, but so far for 2018 will have to be Heartless! WAIT! Ace Of Shades! NO WAIT! The Cruel Prince! Yes that’s the one.

5. LEAST FAVORITE BOOK?

For 2018 and maybe for all books so far, which takes a lot for me to not like a book would have to be Emergency Contact By Mary H. K. Choi. I was expecting so much more I guess.

6. LOVE TRIANGLES? YES OR NO?

I’m gonna go right in the middle and say sometimes. If the author can pull it off nicely and make some juicy, dangerous, creative, and twisted love triangle then I’m all in.

7. THE MOST RECENT BOOK YOU JUST COULDN’T FINISHED?

None so far and I hope to keep it that way. No fun when you have to put a book down.

8. BOOK YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING?

Doing more tags and reading them on other post I noticed this is the main question on all Book Tags. I mean of course it’s going to be asked but when doing tags we should just automatically put are current read in are post before we begin the questions, kinda like when you go to a meeting and you introduce your self! “Hi my name is and I’m here for….” It could be a introduction for us Bookworms..Something like this “My current read Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel By A. W. Jantha” Hmm Yes? No? Maybe? I don’t know just thinking out loud.

9. LAST BOOK YOU RECOMMENDED TO SOMEONE?

The Cruel Prince By Holly Black to a new friend I made at the Barnes And Noble Book Club last month.

10. OLDEST BOOK YOU READ? 

Hmmm does a Dictionary count? If not Anything Can Happen By George Papashvily published in the 40’s.

11. NEWEST BOOK YOU’VE READ?

My current read Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel By A. W. Jantha any how it’s not a completed read yet but it will be 🙂

12. FAVORITE AUTHOR?

Right now Marissa Meyer!

 

13. BUYING BOOKS?

All day everyday baby!

14. A BOOK YOU DISLIKE THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO LOVE?

Nope, unless Emergency Contact By Mary H. K. Choi but I think most others would agree!?

15. BOOKMARKS OR DOG EARRINGS?

Bookmarks all the way!

16. A BOOK YOU CAN REREAD? 

Warriors By Erin Hunter. The whole series and every book I want to reread them!

17. CAN YOU READ WHILE LISTENING TO MUSIC?

Only if its Lofi! But I prefer absolute silence.

 

18. ONE POV OR MULTIPLE POVS?

Multiple POVs! Gives me the opportunity to know each character and have more of a understanding on a situation and how they feel about an event or the other character in the story.

19. DO YOU READ A BOOK IN ONE SETTING OR OVER MULTIPLE DAYS?

Multiple days. I tend to take my time when it comes to reading, unless the book is just so darn incredible but even so I have a busy schedule thru out the day that I don’t have enough time in the day to complete one whole book in a day.

20. ONE BOOK YOU READ BECAUSE OF THE COVER?

The book that started it all for me, the book that pushed me to read more and more…

220px-Warriorsbook1.jpg

Warriors By Erin Hunter.

THE QUESTIONS  

  1. IF YOU COULD BECOME ANY FICTIONAL CHARACTER, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU PICK?

IMG_1412

 

4. WHO / WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START BLOGGING? 

What inspired me to start my book blog was to meet other bookworms out there in this big old world. My best friends, my boyfriend, and even my family are not readers. I have no one to discuss and fan girl over books. Books are my life and I want to share that passion with others who share the same. I mean I do have a lot to say when it comes to books and I need to let it all out one way or another and I guess that’s blogging.

5. HOW MANY BOOKS DO YOU OWN THAT YOU HAVEN’T READ YET?

One moment please…49! All of them are on my TBR list 🙂

6. WHAT DOES YOUR PERFECT SELF- CARE DAY / NIGHT / WEEKEND LOOK LIKE?

I do have a lot of self-care days. During the day it’s sipping on some hot tea and taking Pop’s for his daily walk. Sewing, and lots of it. The rest of the day it’s more hot tea and reading! Little time spending with my boyfriend. Been with him for 10 years so I like to hang out in the bedroom where I have all my books while he is in the living room playing his games (The more the years go on we do are own thing but in the same house hold) HA! I don’t know why that puts a smile on my face but it did because playing online games like COD (Call Of DUTY) was always in my daily plan. NOT ANY MORE. But the perfect self care for me is just being me and doing what I love everyday and truth is that took me awhile to do. Make yourself happy and focus on your true hobbies that you are thrilled to do because if you don’t your mind will go nuts one way or another?! I hope I answered this correctly.

7. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BOOK COVER EVER?

8. ARE THERE WORDS / TERMS THAT IMMEDIATELY TURN YOU OFF A BOOK? WHICH ONES? WHY?

Hmm very good question. No there is not. At least not right now.

9. IS THERE A GENRE YOU RARELY READ BUT DO LOVE READING?

Autobiography books. I do enjoy reading stories from others and what they experience. I remember when I read Marilyn Manson’s autobiography in freshmen year in high school…one and only one thing came to mind..TMI…and wow rock and roll man! Two things I guess.

10. MUNCHES! WHAT NATIONAL / LOCAL DISH ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?

CALAMARI! Yes I love Calamari, I always look forward to a plate of this deliciousness.

Bookish candles. So so many creative ones and they smell fantastic which is a plus. I like to put the bookish candles on my shelf by the book that the candle belongs to. Anyone else do that?

Netflix Book Tag

eee.jpg

This is my first ever Book Tag. I must say that book tags look very fun and a great way for everyone to get to know who’s behind the blog. I will be participating in Book Tags and look forward to all these fun questions! I found this Book Tag on Thriceread.com

So here it goes, my first Book Tag, if I haven’t said it already.

RECENTLY WATCH – THE LAST BOOK YOU FINISHED READING

Just finished The Cruel Prince by Holly Black today. It was on my TBR list for a very long time this year and finally got to it this month, I should of read it a lot sooner. So much darkness and magic all at once.

TOP PICKS – A BOOK RECOMMENDED TO YOU BASED OFF ANOTHER BOOK YOU READ

When I was reading the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire my friend told me about the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I have yet to read the series, but I do own the first book.

RECENTLY ADDED – THE BOOK YOU MOST RECENTLY BOUGHT

I don’t know if this counts but my boyfriend just bought me Leah On The Off Beat By Becky Albertalli.

POPULAR ON NETFLIX – ONE BOOK YOU’VE READ AND ONE BOOK YOU HAVEN’T READ THAT EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT 

I read Children Of Blood And Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. Just sitting here waiting for book two to come out!

I have not read Caraval by Stephanie Garber. The book is on my TBR list and has been for awhile now along with the second book Legendary. I hear good things about it but we are all different when it comes to reading and what we like at the end of the day. But for real I really need to get on that hmmm possible next read?

COMEDIES – NAME A FUNNY BOOK

One book that comes to mind that I recently read not to long ago would be Clock Dance by Anne Tyler. One of the characters that is a nine year old name Cheryl and her dog name Airplane just made me laugh thru out the book. She was a character, but usually all kids are.

DRAMAS – NAME A CHARACTER WHO IS A DRAMA KING/QUEEN

Hmmm at the moment I can’t think of any. I’m stumped.

CARTOONS – NAME A BOOK WITH CARTOONS ON THE COVER

The only thing I have that have cartoons on the covers are my Fables comics. I guess you can decide if that counts.

WATCH AGAIN – A BOOK OR SERIES YOU REALLY WANT TO REREAD

The series that I want to reread which is what got me to really get into reading are the Warriors by Erin Hunter. Gosh what a wonderful series to read when I was growing up. I seriously could not put these books down.

DOCUMENTARIES – A NON- FICTION YOU’D RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE

Every day I’m Hustling by Vivica A. Fox. I had the privileged to meet her this year and got my book signed by her. Very inspiring and very little gossip 😉

ACTION/ADVENTURE – NAME AN ACTION PACKED BOOK OR SERIES

Six Of Crows and the second book Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. A lot of action and a lot of kick ass characters.

NEW RELEASES – A NEW RELEASE YOU ARE EXCITED ABOUT

Considering I finished The Cruel Prince today I’m really looking forward to The Wicked King by Holly Black next year to be released, January can not get here any faster!

Let me know what you guys think. I would tag some book bloggers but since I’m new everyone is tagged. TTFN.
