Book Traveling Thursday (#36)|Christmas!

Hey everyone! It’s time for a holiday themed Book Traveling Thursday! This wonderful weekly meme is hosted by Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. To find out more info about the meme, future themes and more, visit the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s theme is:

It’s Christmas Time!! Choose a book that makes you think about Christmas. (If you don’t celebrate Christmas you can choose a book that features any other festivity)

I decided to pick a classic picture book since I couldn’t think of any YA books. I chose How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss.


Original/Cover From My Country (US):

How the Grinch Stole Christmas


Favorite Cover(s):

Comment le Grinch A Vole Noel (French Edition)French

Il GrinchItalian

Le GrinchFrench

Most of the covers were like the original so there’s slim pickings for this one. France knew what they were doing with this one. My favorite is the movie one because of how it shows the movie Grinch and that’s it. No extra pictures or anything that has nothing to do with the story.


Least Favorite Cover(s):

Cum a furat Grinch Crăciunul

Every cover like this one that’s just like the original. The only different is the language. Use a little imagination!


That’s a wrap! The covers were not never diverse this week. What’s your favorite Christmas story? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Book Traveling Thursday!

Book Traveling Thursday (#33)|Smile

Hey everyone! It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for another Book Traveling Thursday. This weekly meme is hosted by these wonderful ladies: Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. Kudos to them for creating this awesome meme 🙂 To find out more info, future themes and more, go to the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s theme is:

Tomorrow is World Smile Day! Choose a book that made you smile recently.

This was tough since I haven’t been reading too much recently. I decided to do  The Odyssey by Homer. It’s a classic poem about a man named Odysseus and his travels. I recently finished this as a class read at school. It was fairly enjoyable and made me towards the end.


Original Cover/Cover From My Country (US):

No original cover. It’s  ancient Greek story/poem so there’s no exact original cover.

There’s really no exact cover for my country!


Favorite Cover(s):

الأوديسةArabic

La OdiseaSpanish

L'Odyssée (traduction de Leconte de Lisle)French

Ομήρου ΟδύσσειαGreek (Modern)

The Spanish one is my favorite out of these because of the detail and the color.

 

Least Favorite Cover(s):

La OdiseaSpanish

OdysseeGerman

OdisseaItalian

OdisseiaPortuguese

What happened Portugal? Did you forget to make a cover?


There was n0 fantastic covers for this one. Have you read or heard of The Odyssey? Let me know what you thought!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Book Traveling Thursday!

Pokémon Go Book Tag!!

Hey everyone! It’s Wednesday and it’s time for a rare double post day. Today I am doing a book tag. More specifically the Pokémon Go Book Tag. I saw this on My Tiny Obsessions’ blog last month and knew I had to do it. Go check out her amazing blog for all things bookish, movie, TV shows, traveling and so much more!  For the record, I do not play Pokémon Go and don’t plan to. I can understand why it’s fun and so hyped but it’s just not my thing. This tag was created by Aentee @ Read At Midnight.

Pokemon-Go-Book-Tag

I’m going to use Aentee’s graphics because they’re so amazing!

pokemon-tag-01starters

This book definitely started my love for reading. It was my first chapter book and after that, I wanted to read as much as Junie B Jones as possible. After that all I wanted to do was read.

pokemon-tag02pikachuI haven’t read any iconic classics. I’m sure I’ll read some in High School though!


pokemon-tag-03-zubat

Hmm.. I’m going to say Allegiant by Veronica Roth. The hype died down a long time ago. I have heard nothing but bad about the book so I refuse to read it. It’s not everywhere now but it was.


Pokemon-Tag-04-Ditto

I’m going to say Half Brother by Kenneth Oppal. It’s sooo similar to another book I’ve read but I still loved it.


Pokemon-Tag-05-Snorlax
Nothing comes to mind. Even if a book is super long, I’d still read it.

Pokemon-Tag06-Gengar

The last book that kept me up was I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak. It kept me up because of the suspense, mystery and adventure. I just couldn’t bring myself to put it down.

Pokemon-Tag07-NidokingQueen

This is pretty tough. I’m going to say Cath and Levi from Fangirl. They’re already together but they are still the perfect OTP1`

 Pokemon-Tag08-RapidashI’m going to say The Hunger Games series. Something is always happening and there’s plot twists popping up everywhere!

Pokemon-Tag09-EeveeI’m going to say The Harry Potter series. I’m excited to see how the Cursed Child book is. But just like the rest of the series, I’m sure I’ll read it way later than everyone else.


Pokemon-Tag14-Magikarp

The Harry Potter series would be perfect for this. Since I just did that answer… The Book Thief. I was hesitant to read it but am so glad I did.

Pokemon-Tag12-LegendaryNothing comes to mind. I don’t really have an series’ that I want to read.


Pokemon-Tag15Mew-MewTwoThe Fangirl collectors edition, The Harry Potter book series collectors editions and the Eleanor and Park collectors edition just to name a few.


Pokemon-Tag10-EggI don’t have any debut novels. Just more from Becky Albertalli, Nicola Yoon and Bill Kongisberg!


Pokemon-Tag11-Lure-ModuleNone! I don’t do any of that stuff.


Pokemon-Tag13-Server-Down

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon-Release Date: November 1st,2016
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli-Release Date: April 2017
Honestly Ben by Bill Konigsberg-Release Date: Fall 2016
That’s all for now!

I nominate: EVERYONE who wants to participate! This is a great tag for Pokémon Go fans and non Pokémon Go fans alike. What’s your favorite Pokémon? Let me know!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more great book tags!

Book Traveling Thursday (#26) Sequels

Hey everyone!! It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for another Book Traveling Thursday. This meme is hosted by these wonderful people: Càtia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. You definitely need to check their amazing blogs out if you haven’t already. To find out more information about the meme, future themes and more, go to the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s theme is:

Because some sequels are better than the first book choose your favorite sequel.

I’ve already done some sequels for this. I think I will be doing Anne of Avonlea by L.M Montgomery. This is an old book that I actually haven’t read yet. I’ve read Anne of Green Gables and by accidently read the third one after that. Luckily, I will be reading Anne of Avonlea soon. I’m sure it will be great. Without further ado, here we go!


Original Cover/Cover From My Country (US):

I’m not 100% sure if this is the original cover but it’s one of the first. I don’t know if there is an official cover from my country or not.


Favorite Cover(s):

Ana la de Avonlea (Ana de las Tejas Verdes, #2)Spanish

Енн із ЕйвонліUkrainian

Анн от Авонлий (Анн от Грийн Гейбълс, #2)Bulgarian

21522439Finnish

Out of these, my favorite is the Spanish cover. It has both black and white and color. The Spanish one has both a real and cartoony feel to it too.


Least Favorite Cover(s):

13637667Hungarian

Anne bliver lærer (Anne-bøgerne, #2)Danish

Ania z AvonleaPolish

Cesta za velkým snem (Anne of Green Gables, #2)Czech

My least favorite out of these is the Czech one. It looks like someone took a picture of a random girl and put it on the cover. That girl doesn’t even have red hair like Anne!


That’s a wrap! What are your favorite and least favorite covers? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Book Traveling Thursday!

The BFGOriginal The BFGCover I read

Favorite Cover(s):

Il GGGItalian

De GVRDutch

All the covers are pretty darn similar! I apologize for that. My favorite is the Italian because of the yellow border/edges.

Least Favorite(s):

غول بزرگ مهربانPersian

WielkomiludPolish

Sophie và tên khổng lồVietnamese

ยักษ์ใจดีThai

Oh my gosh! The Thai and Polish ones are pretty creepy. This is a pretty well known book so finding covers wasn’t hard.

This week’s theme seemed hard until I thought about it a bit. This week I have decided to do The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. I absolutely love Toto and Dorthy’s relationship.

Original Cover/Cover from my Country (US):

This is most likely the original. I don’t think there is an exact cover for the US.

Favorite Cover(s):

The Wizard of Oz (Oz, #1)English

The Wonderful Wizard of OzEnglish

The Wizard of OzEnglish

Der Zauberer von OzGerman

So Cute!

El mago de Oz (Oz, #1)Spanish

Il meraviglioso Mago di OzItalian

My favorite out of these is the German one because it’s so darn adorable!

Least Favorite(s):

El mago de OzSpanish (There are so many Spanish editions!)

The Wonderful Wizard of OzEnglish

ساحر أوزArabic

Der Zauberer von Oz (Oz, #1)German

My least favorite out of these is the English one. It makes absolutely no sense and doesn’t have anything to do with the book.


There are so many different covers of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I had to search a little bit to find some diverse covers but managed to find some.

What are your favorite and least favorite covers? Let me know!

Being a devoted bookworm, I have countless favorite books. For this theme I have decided to do Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. It’s a classic by one of my favorite children’s authors!

Book Traveling Thursdays

Original Cover/Cover from My Country (US):

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie Bucket, #1)English

This is the book I read. I am not 100% sure what the original one is.


Favorite Cover(s):

La fabbrica di cioccolatoItalian

Sjakie en de chocoladefabriekDutch

Charlie Und Die SchokoladenfabrikGerman

Sjakie en de ChocoladefabriekDutch (Apparently they have different editions)

تشارلي ومصنع الشوكولاته (Charlie Bucket, #1)Arabic

My favorite has to be the one I read. It’s so colorful and cheerful.


 

Least Favorite(s):

چارلی و کارخانه‌ی شکلات‌سازیPersian

 

چارلی و کارخانهء شکلات‌سازیPersian

Çarli'nin Çikolata FabrikasıTurkish

Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryEnglish (Penguin Classics)

La fabbrica di cioccolato (Charlie Bucket, #1)Italian

I have two least favorites on here. The worst is the Penguin Classic. What does a creepy girl have to do with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?!The last is the Italian cover above. It doesn’t have much to do with the book.


That’s a wrap! This week definitely had lots of diversity.
