Banners Created by Aentee Hey bookworms it’s me again! I just thought I’d try something a little different from my usual norm especially since I haven’t done a tag in forever, but the lovely Miss Aentee created one that appealed … Continue reading
Hey Bookworms! I know I am behind on all my tags and Awards, so I am starting today as a catch up day. The reason I usually hesitate with most tags is because I feel I haven’t read enough lately. … Continue reading
Hey Bookworms! I saw this tag on Monday and needed to do it! As you may or not know I am a little bit of gamer. Nintendo was also my first system and before my playstation I was more than happy with my Nintendo DS! As a bookworm I love stories whether they be in books, movies, shows, but at times games are my favorite. Especially Role-Play Games because I get to be a part of the story. Anywho this amazing tag was created by the lovely booktuber: Novels and Nonsense. I will also lead her video right here:
The Nintendo Book Tag
1) NES (Nintendo Entertainment System): A Classic you want to read
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
I want to read more classics but especially children ones they have a nostalgia and safety to them. Plus this is one I always seem to get half way through, but never finish. I really like it though just need to push!
2) SNES (Super Nintendo): A Sequel you liked more than the 1st (can be a 3rd book in a series)
Princess in the Spotlight by Meg Cabot
Mia really came more into her own a bit more in this book. She wasn’t the most confident still, but I feel the characters were a bit more defined in this book!
3) Nintendo 64: A book that revolutionized the way you look at the world
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
I gushed about this book in my Day 2 of my challenge post. Essentially it reminded me that some people are able to see the person.
4) Gamecube: A popular book that did not go over so well with you
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
Please don’t throw things at me, but this series was okay… I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it. Honestly I only read it so I would be able to watch the movies with less guilt.
5) Wii: A new favorite book
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Honestly this is my favorite Beauty and the Beast retelling ever. With a Beauty who isn’t 100% good. She is selfish and pursues her needs and wants as well. This book and setting was amazing to me, and the narrator’s voice for the audio book was perfection to listen to.
6) Nintendo Power: Favorite Graphic novel series or a series you want to start
Saga by Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Hands down right now it is Saga although the 4th book wasn’t my favorite due to some cliches this is an amazing series! The art is so well done and for me that is high praise because I am picky with the art style! This series is for mature audiences so if you’re not of the right age or sex scenes make you uncomfortable it may not be for you, if you are and haven’t read it… Go to the bookstore this instant!!!
7) Super Mario: A Character that you’d love to squish like a Goomba
Xavier Van Romerius from Finding My Prince by J.S. Cooper
Now this question was especially hard because characters I usually don’t like either change or are the bad guys. Which hopefully by the end of the series the main character kills them. Then I thought about the one book I DNFed this year. I couldn’t even get through the first 50 pages of this very short book. The love interest turned my stomach and frankly made me want to punch him in the face. Needless to say I promptly deleted it off my nook. I probably wont buy anything by the author again and i am also sick of perfect looking characters who think it gives them the right to act like an arrogant jerk.
8) Zelda: A newer fantasy that you consider to be a modern classic
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
Now I know a lot of people may go with this answer, but I haven’t finished reading any “new” fantasy lately. Most of the fantasy books I like are older. Game of thrones has a very diverse way of letting a reader see every side of a story and it does not hide the good the bad or the ugly. Even this one is a bit old.
9) Samas-Aran: Favorite Sci-fi novel or one you want to read
Zodiac by Romina Russel
The only sci-fi I have read recently or truly know. The book I am currently reading could count, but since I am unsure I am going with Zodiac. I love anything having to do with Birth signs and them all living on different planets made it even better. Now I was a little spoiled, so it wasn’t as amazing as it could be but it was still really good! I cannot wait for book two!
10) Pokemon: Book editions that you want to collect
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
One of my favorite fairy-tales and I would love to have every edition especially in HARD COVER!!
11) Donkey Kong: A book with original characters
Bitten by Kelley Armstrong
Any book in this series and I haven’t even read them all. Kelley Armstrong creates amazing and strong characters especially females! I can’t wait to get to know them all.
12) Nintendo Fandom: Favorite Nintendo game(s) or game you really want
1. I love all the Pokemon Games, but I want to try the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
2.What Few People know though is I have a series I hold closer to my heart who’s story line has made me feel all the feels! That is the Fire Emblem series and I am super excited for the newest one to come out Fire Emblem Fates! 2016 seems too far away!
Well that is all for this tag bookworms! I hope you enjoyed my answers! What are your favorites of these books or games? Have you read or played them? What are your thoughts on my choices? Do you have any sci-fi recommendations for me? What are your favorite RPG’s? I’m always looking for more. Let me know in the comments. Happy reading and playing!
PS: If you are looking for another tag to do there is always my Original Book BFF Tag ^_^

Hey bookworms! It’s me again. I was watching Booktube this morning and saw a few Friday Reads videos, and I thought I would do my own… Well at least the blogging equivalent too it. Friday Reads is a chance to discuss what I plan or hope to read over the weekend. Honestly? I am feeling a little slumpy despite my intake of books. My attention span just to be all over the place or I am just too sleepy to physically read a book. I hope it goes away over the weekend though because I really want to participate in another readathon, but that is a post for Sunday hopefully. So here is what I hope to read over the weekend!
1. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
This is library book and it is due next week. I only am in 2 chapters in, but it is good so far plus the cover is pretty! So yea hoping to finish it this weekend!
2. A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
I’m doing a buddy read with Paige from The Paige-Turner. We read 12 chapters a week from each book and cheer each other on, so I want to finish at least 12 chapters by Sunday
3. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
This was my personilized Uppercase book for May, so I hope to finish this one up by Monday at the latest because My June one gets here!
4. Everneath by Brodi Ashton
This one is due on the 20th so I need to also hurry up and read it. I hope it is as good as the author painted it to be at the book Festival in October!
5. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
I have the audio book from the library, so I’m hoping it pulls me out of my slump like audio books have lately. I plan to start it in a bit =)
So Bookworms, that is what I plan to read this weekend! What is on your reading agenda? What do you do to fight a slump? Have you read these? Which should I look forward too most? Let me know in the comments! Another post will be up soon! Happy reading!
PS: Just for fun here is what I’m currently listening to! Does anyone know if there are any Swan Princess Retellings book wise?

Hey bookworms! How are you all! So I was struck today by an idea to create a book tag! I’ve never done this before, so I hope my questions make sense and are fun. I am nervous to put it out there, but maybe it will go far!
The Book BFF Tag!
1.Setting the Example: A pair/group of book bff’s that you love
Rose and Lissa from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
2. Childhood Bestie: Which book character would you have like to grow up with?
America Singer from The Selection Series by Kiera Cass
I know most people find her annoying, but I adore her and her talents and wit. I would also be a 5 and we could play duets together!
3. Frenemy: Which book character would bring out your competitive side?
Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson and the Olympian series by Rick Riordan
She is just super smart and I would be competitive on who knew more mythology!
4. Fashion Guru: Who would be the bestie whose closet you’d want to raid or would you want to go on a shopping spree with?
Eadlyn Schreave from The Heir by Kiera Cass
I know I know this is part of the selection, but technically I consider it a spinoff series. She designs her own clothes! I am short and would love her to design clothes for me that are more appropriate for my age.
5. The Bad Influence: Which character would you want to commit a small act of rebellion with? (go skinny dipping, sneak into a movie, have a drag race with, etc.)
Kami Glass from Unspoken by Sarah Reese Brennan
6.Blood Brothers: Which character would you want to be your surrogate big brother/sister? (You can do both if you want)
Eddie Castile from The Bloodlines series he is in VA too, but is much more prominent in this series. He is always there for Sydney and he makes me giggle!
7. Mother Hen: Which character would you want to be by your side when you’re having a bad day to cheer you up?
Kelsey from The Tiger’s Curse Series by Colleen Houck
She would make me cookies and we could watch movies. Have a girl day!
8. The Counselor:Which character would you go to for relationship advice (or) confide a secret to?
Stevie Rae from The House of Night Series by PC and Kristin Cast
She has always been on of the truest of the nerd herd. She always gives good advice and is there for all her friends. I know this series was a long one, but she stayed true the whole time. The last few books bugged me but I overall have a soft spot for this series it brought me really great friends!
9. More than friends:Who would be your book bf/ gf (if you like both genders you can choose one of each, but only one choice per gender!)
Kishan Rajaram from the Tiger’s Curse Series again by Colleen Houck
I know I know 2 characters from the same series, but I am really picky with book bf’s. He is my heart really as much as a fictional character can be especially in the last 3 books. I feel like he would truly see me and see the beauty behind the disability. Yes I am in love don’t judge
As for a book gf: No girl has really caught my eye or broken the mold or made me want to put them anything farther than the friend zone but things can change ^_~
10. Tag some Book Buddies!
1. The lovely young ladies at A Fangirl’s Opinion
2. Niki Hawkes at The Obsessive Book Seller
3. Analee from Book Snacks
4. Jenny Duffy from The books, The Art, and Me
5. Christine from Girl in the Pages
6. Hayley from Hails Hearts NYC
7. Sierra from TheBookSpook
8. Cristian from The Bookish God
9. Samantha from Thoughts on Tomes
10. Anyone else who thinks this seems fun!!!
You guys don’t have to do it, but It would make me happy if you did! If you decide to do the tag don’t forget to tag me, so I can see your answers please. I am so excited to have created this tag! Hope you have fun with the questions. I even had trouble answering them. My lack of variety either proves commitment to my favorite books or my need to read more… I choose both XD Hope you enjoyed this bookworms! I know this is two posts in one night, but this one has been one I’ve been working on for weeks. I just wanted to get it up when it was done! Happy reading!

Hey bookworms! I saw this tag on What More is Tomorrow’s blog and the tag was created by the booktuber, A Daydreamer’s Ramblings and immediately knew I had to do it! Maybe it’s because it was because I was craving chocolate all week? Which I finally got with some dark chocolate gelato! =D Anywho this seemed too fun to resist, so I hope you enjoy my answers.
1. Dark chocolate: a book that covers a dark topic
For right now I would have to say my belated guilty pleasure… Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews. Now if you don’t know this book deals with themes of incest and child abuse. Now if you can get over these two subjects the way it is written brings you into investing in these characters right away. The journalistic style had me constantly having to remind myself it was fiction. If you can look past the incest you can see the themes that this book brought awareness too which is why I defend liking it. I call it a guilty pleasure because I want to see what the rest of the series entails and what happens to the Dollangangers.
2. White chocolate: your favorite lighthearted/humorous read
Definitely the Percy Jackson and the Olympian Series series by Rick Riordan I just love Percy’s personality and he constantly makes me giggle!
3. Milk chocolate: a book with a lot of hype that you’re dying to read
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon this book and the show have both gotten huge amounts of hype, but it is biiiiiiiiiiig! So I am hoping to get to it as soon as the semester ends. It is definitely not easy to tackle big reads in April when everything is due for my classes!
4. Chocolate with a caramel center: a book that makes you feel all gooey in the middle while you read it
Stardust by Neil Gaiman I listened to this last month as an audiobook, and I think there are certain books that touch more when your older! Because when I was in high school the all the little details confused me deeply and it went over my head, but now at the age of 23 it made me melt!
5. Wafer free kit kat: a book that has surprised you lately
I really haven’t been surprised lately in the last few years (recommendations if you want to fix the problem for me please!), so I will just go with the last one that did:
Tiger’s Destiny by Colleen Houck just what happened to the characters in this I was not ready for…
6.Snickers: a book you are going nuts about
I haven’t read a book lately that I’m fangirling over, so I will put my most anticipated release of this year:
The Heir by Kiera Cass I love that the series is continuing! I will not put more than because I do not want to spoil anyone who wants to start this series.
7. Hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows: a book that you would turn to for a comfort read
Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause! I have mentioned this book before and it’s not exactly a sweet read, but it reminds me of a sense of pack and why I connect with wolves. It is also the book I’ve read the most: 16 times!
Now I do want to tag one blogger: The Paige-Turner, but I want to see more people do this because I do love chocolate! Comment down below and let me know if you have read any of these books or have a suggestion for a book to surprise me please. I hope you enjoyed this post bookworms and I will be posting again soon!
