Top 5 Wednesday (#2)| New Years Eve Party

Hey everyone! It’s time for the new meme for Wednesday on this blog. There wasn’t too much response on whether or not you guys enjoyed this. I did so I will continue 🙂 Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by gingerreadslainey and Sam @ Thoughts On Tomes. Both of these lovely ladies have YouTube blogs as opposed to regular ones like this one. To find out more information, future topics and more, visit the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s topic is the last one for the year. It is New Year’s based.

Characters You’d Invite to Your New Year’s Eve Party
Pretty self explanatory. Who would you want to your NYE bash and why?

top-5-wednesdays


Characters I’d Invite To My NYE Bash:

1. Hagrid- Harry Potter

Can you imagine how fantastic the party would be with Hagrid there? He would be hilarious and the life of the party 😀

2. Dumbledore-Harry Potter

Dumbledore would make the party amazing! He seems like he would be the quiet person that occasionally says things that make everyone laugh.

3. Kitty-To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

She’s a kid but always entertains me. She’d be the one trying and possibly succeeding in making everyone laugh.

4. Levi-Fangirl

Levi would be the type of person making sure everyone is having a good time. He’s such a nice guy that would really add life to my party.

5. Effie Trinket-The Hunger Games

Effie is so strange and unique. She’d probably be the one everyone is enthralled by but also scared of.

That’s a wrap! I would definitely invite more than these five. These are just the ones that randomly came to mind. I only did two Harry Potter characters. I’m glad the list has some variety. Who would you invite to your New Year’s Eve Bash? Let me know who and why!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5W!

Library Book Haul (#5)

Hey everyone! Today is Sunday and it’s time for another Library Book Haul! I apologize for this one being so late/early. I wanted to get it out today. Today’s haul consists of  4 unread books and one summer reading prize. Without further ado, let’s get started!!


FullSizeRender (3)

*ALL BOOK TITLES ARE LINKED TO THE BOOK’S GOODREADS PAGE :)*

1.Sweet Home Alaska by Carole Estby Dagg -Tween

Sweet Home Alaska

This book sounded so interesting! It’s set in first Wisconsin then Alaska in 1934; during The Great Depression. You’ll hear about it in a WWW Wednesday or two but I won’t be doing a review.


2.Emily of New Moon by L.M. Montgomery-Tween

Emily of New Moon (Emily, #1)(Not the edition I got)

Another small series by L.M. Montgomery. I love her writing style and characters so much. Now I’m determined to get through all the books she’s written. Just like all Tween books, I won’t be doing an official review.


3. Treasure Hunters #4: Peril At The Top Of The World by James Patterson-Tween

(Goodreads has no cover picture; this is from the B&N site)

I love this series so much! It’s mainly graphic novels but the characters go on such amazing adventures. Won’t be reviewed unless requested, same with all Tween books.


4.I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak-Young Adult

I Am the Messenger

I loved The Book Thief (review scheduled for Friday) so much that I decided to read more by Zusak. It sounds interesting so I hope it’ll be at least almost as good as The Book Thief. This is the only book that will definitely have a review. The rest can have one with enough requests.


5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins-Summer Reading Prize/Young Adult

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

As I normally do, I entered the summer reading program at the local library. I read 1,o00 minutes (and more) and turned in my log. I didn’t know I got a  free book but was excited to pick one. I ended up picking a classic: The Hunger Games. I don’t own the other two books so I’ll have to get my hands on those 😀


That’s a wrap! Are any of these books interesting to you? Let me know!

This haul consisted of 3 Tween and 2 Young Adult/Teen books.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Library Book Hauls.

Book Traveling Thursday (#21) A New World

Hello everyone! Today I am graduating from my school 🙂 I’m exciting to see what the next school has to offer. Today is also Thursday. That means it’s time for Book Traveling Thursday. This wonderful meme is hosted by Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog! You definitely need to check their blogs out if you haven’t already. To find out more information, future themes and more, go to the Goodreads page here. This week’s theme is:

Because world building matters… Choose a book in which world you would like to live.

Oh my gosh! I’ve already done pretty much every Harry Potter book… I guess I will change it a bit and do a world I wouldn’t like to live in. I apologize if I’ve already done this but I am doing The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It would be so scary to live in this book!


Original/Cover From My Country (US):

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

Favorite Cover(s):

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)English

De Hongerspelen (De Hongerspelen, #1)Dutch

Igre gladi (Igre gladi, #1)Serbian

Los juegos del hambre (Los juegos del hambre, #1)Spanish

飢餓遊戲 (飢餓遊戲, #1)

My favorite out of these is probably the Serbian one. It’s so creative!

Least Favorite(s):

Bado žaidynės (Bado žaidynės, #1)Lithuanian

7769068Russian

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)English

De Hongerspelen (De Hongerspelen, #1)Dutch

مباريات الجوعArabic

These are honestly a great example of why you don’t use people in your covers. My least favorite is the Arabic one because it’s random and doesn’t make sense.


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

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

Book Traveling Thursdays (#6)

Hey everyone!! It’s time for Book Traveling Thursdays. This weekly meme is hosted by Catia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. You should definitely check out their blogs 🙂 If you want to see the rules and themes go to the Goodreads group. This week’s theme is:

Crying is not always bad. Choose a book that made you ugly cry

I honestly don’t really ever cry while reading. I get a bit teary eyed or sad but I don’t cry. Therefore, I just chose a book that made other people cry but not me. I chose MockingJay by Suzanne Collins. 


Original Cover/Cover From My Country (US):

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)English

Favorite Cover(s):

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)English

Revolt (Hungerspelstrilogin, #3)Swedish

Sjaj slobode (Igre gladi, #3)Serbian

Matkijanärhi (Nälkäpeli, #3)Finnish

Sinsajo (Los juegos del hambre, #3)Spanish

My favorite out of all of these is the English one. It’s so bright and colorful.

Least Favorite Cover(s):

الطائر المقلدArabic

Die Tribute von Panem: Flammender Zorn (Die Tribute von Panem, #3)German

Spotgaai (De Hongerspelen, #3)Dutch

There was a few more but Goodreads wouldn’t let me go beyond page 1. My least favorite is probably the first one. It doesn’t have anything to do with the book.


That’s all!

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

3 Days 3 Quotes: The Final Day (Day 3)

Hi everyone! Today is the third and final day of the 3 days 3 Quotes Challenge. I’m finishing this Challange off with a Hunger Games quote.

The Rules

1. Thank the person that nominated you

2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 Quote per day)

3. Nominate 3 different bloggers everyday.

Once again, thank you so much @MyTinyObsessions for giving me the opportunity to participate in such an amazing challenge.

Todays quote:

image

Source: buzzquotes.com

This quote is from Mockingjay the final book of the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. It is said by Finnick Odair. Finnick Odair is a District 4 victor and a mentor. He was 24-25 in this book and was played by Sam Claflin in the film. If you haven’t read the Hunger Games series I strongly recommend it. The books can get pretty violent, intense and also have lots of suspense. This quote means in my opinion  that once you fall apart, it can take ten times as much courage and energy to bounce back.

Today I nominate:

@dailywriter

@WillowGlass

@dray0308

Let these wonderful people know they won. As always they can take it or leave it!

Thanks for reading and let me know if there is any other tags or challenges you would like to see me do.
