Spell Your Name Book Tag

Thanks to Nadia over at A Creative Girl Nadia for tagging me!

The concept of this tag is fairly simple: all you have to do is spell your name using the titles of books. Here we go!

B- Blindness by Jose Saramago (I had to read this book over the summer for English, but I ended up enjoying it a lot).

A- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (Oh my gosh, I love this book so much I can’t even express properly in words how much I love it).

T- Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (another awesome book by SJM).

O- Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout (a simply “meh” book)

O- Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout (another not so great read. I needed titles that start with O, okay? It’s harder to find those than you think!)

L- Lailah by Nikki Kelly (This was a good read only because I liked one of the love interests, and because of the fact that Nikki writes really sensual and interesting vampire blood-sucking scenes. I know it sounds weird, but trust me, she’s good at it!)

Well, that’s it! As for the people I’m tagging, I’ll leave it open so that anyone can participate if they want 🙂 Thanks for reading!

The Book-to-Movie Wishlist Tag

Hello there!

Have you ever found yourself reading a certain part of a book and thinking to yourself “Wow, I bet this would be really cool if it was in a movie”? If so, I can relate. That’s why I created this tag! (I don’t know if a similar one already exists out there. If so…umm…oops?)

The rules are very simple: pick 5 books that you would like to see made into movies, and talk  a little bit about why you picked those books. Then, tag 5 more people to join in the fun. You’re welcome to use the image below if you’d like.

So, here are my five choices:

book to movie

 

1. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

I really want this book made into a movie simply because of how much I love it. I want to see on screen Warner and Kenji. Plus, there’s so much drama in the book that it would make a great movie. On the downside, however, the book is told from Juliette’s point of view, and portraying the thoughts that are constantly going through her head in a movie would be difficult. I feel like if this book ever became a movie, so many things would be changed around that it could end up disappointing me.

2. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I would absolutely LOVE to see this made into a movie! I have such an easy time picturing all of the parts of this book onscreen. Alina and the Darkling’s powers are so cool, and the setting of the book is so beautiful. Of my five choices, this has got to be the first one on my wishlist for movies.

3. Throne of Glass by Sara J. Maas

Everything about this book is just awesome. Celaena is such a kick-ass character that I need someone like her in a movie.

4. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Just imagine transitioning the creepiness of this book into a movie. Imagine freaking the audience out with what Mara sees because of her PTSD hallucinations. I. NEED. THIS. MOVIE.

5. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

I think that this would make a great movie because I loved the relationship between the main characters, and I think that like S&B, the whole powers aspect of it would be great for a movie. I’d love to see Liam and Zu’s powers on screen!

So those were my five choices! Here are the five people I’m tagging:

Thanks for reading!

The Gif Tag

Hiya! I was unofficially tagged for this by Natalie over at Science, Books and Silly Things, so here goes nothing.

Basically, how this works is I’m given a list of books, and I have to react to the books using gifs. If you’re confused, just scroll down a little and it’ll start to make more sense, I promise. After this, I’ll share my own list of books and tag some people as well. 🙂

So, without further ado:

Percy Jackson & The Olympians by Rick Riordan

I read it back in middle school, and I really loved it then (not sure how I’d feel about it now, though).

The Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin

That series seriously gave me the creeps, but in a totally good way! Still haven’t read the last book though…oops.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Haven’t read it.

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

I read it, but I wasn’t super into it. I managed to finish it, though, so I feel like that should count for something. No? Well, okay then.

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

and also

Fantastic series. Can’t go wrong with Harry I-love-me-some-tacos Potter.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Haven’t read it and I’m not a fan of the whole vampire genre in general. And this was me back in 7th or 8th grade when everyone was reading Twilight:

Landline by Rainbow Rowell

Haven’t read this one either.

Graceling by Kristing Cashore

Nuh-uh. Although, I have heard great things about this one from multiple people. And it seems that Natalie is a pretty big fan too ;).

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

 Looking for Alaska by John Green

I’ve seen some great quotes on the internet from this book, but I haven’t actually read it. This is my favorite: “If people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.”

Here is my list of books:

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

2. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

3. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

4. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

6. Fallen by Kate Lauren

7. Delirium by Lauren Oliver

8. Divergent by Veronica Roth

9. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

10. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

And I’m tagging: 

1. Eden from Blogging Between the Lines

2. Brin over at Brin’s Book Blog 

3. Jessica and Amber from The Book Bratz

And anyone else who wants to do it!
