Hey Bookworms! I know I’ve been missing for a while, but I figured what better way to jump back in than with a book challenge! I did one last year and this one was created by the same lovely person … Continue reading
Hey Bookworms! It’s me again! I’m sorry I don’t have a banner for my Life Update posts, but I will eventually! Hopefully… Any who this post will be about my gush for Fire Emblem Fates
which I will be picking up the retail versions on Friday! Eeep! I will be playing Hoshido first and then Nohr! I have been a FE fan since the game Sacred Stones, so to have a new game after Awakening in which I fell in love with the Prince Chrom! He is my game husband and it is just as bad as having a book boyfriend, so I’m not ashamed!
The thing about both Awakening and Fates is both games are more immersive for the players allowing you to play and design your own character. It adds to the part about the games I love the most! The story line and the roller coaster of feels as you get more attached to characters the ones you have and the ones you gain. There is also a marriage aspect that builds character on a whole new level. So if you are a reader with a 3DS I recommend starting with these games. They have such good story line and allows you to think for and with the characters which you can’t do enough in books lately. RPG’s have always been my game of choice and the strategy part of it tests my brain as well. If I do persuade you to play the game or if you already plan to do feel free to DM on twitter for your friend code!
Other Life Updates:
I graduated University in December and I got an email saying my diploma was being mailed today! I am so relieved and I was beginning to think I filled out something wrong! I mean it’s been 2 months… Besides that I’ve started the job hunting process through the Bureau of Vocational Rehab. Sadly we don’t live in a perfect world and jobs do discriminate. This job helps find jobs and get accommedations at said jobs for people with any kind of disability whether it’s mental (depression), learning (Developmental, ADD, Dyslexia) or Physical like me. It’s great to have this tool because I want to do everything through the proper channels because I am on SSI and don’t want to ruin it if I need it later in life. Now this process can take up to 60 days after the initial applying appointment to see if you qualify which I do and did last week. My counselor is hopeful because of how prepared I was, so I’m hoping that this all goes quickly. If I didn’t stay positive my depression would get the best of me in this dragging time.
So I needed to do something to fill my time in the meantime. I’m volunteering at an Organization called All the Same: Wild and Time Sanctuary! I get to play with and love on kitties (and the menial tasks of cleaning litter boxes and feeding them) as they wait to get adopted. Like the lovely Morticia:
The thing I love most about this organization is that they rescue from pound and things like that. It is fun and gets me out of the house on Thursdays and Fridays. It helps me be social and gives me some physical activity that I have been missing since I finished School. It gives me a kitty fix until I get my own place and adopt my own.
Speaking of which I am also dealing with an unwanted move, so I may be a bit unavailable in March, but I don’t know when yet, so I will let you all know sooner. I am trying to focus more on the positive, which is why I can’t wait to get a job. Although I don’t know what I want as a day job, but since I don’t plan to stay in my state because there’s not much for me to pursue in my desired career choices. So any job I have in these next 2 years will be experience and hopefully lead to new friendships!
Well bookworms that’s all that up in my life right now? How about yours? Have you played Fire Emblem? Which were your favorites? How bout favorite characters? Did I convince you to play? Do you have any other advice for not going stir crazy? Feel free to comment down below and let me know! Happy Reading and Gaming!
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 ^_^
