Hello, everyone! I hope you had/are having a wonderful day!

I'm here to tell you that I will delete this blog soon... I know, it's like I can't decide what I want to do with my life. I know I have given up on blogging on Wordpress and now I want to delete this blog. I made this decision because I know I won't have time to blog not only because college starts next month, but also I already have my Portuguese blog for many years and I prefer to keep the Portuguese one and delete this one. I think I have always known this, but I always kept trying to keep an English blog. However, it's time to face the truth and admit that I prefer to blog in Portuguese than in English, even though an English blog could help me improve my English skills. But still, I have Instagram and I read in English now, so I'll be fine. If I really think that I should come back, I'll go back to Wordpress, not here.

So, I'm sorry if anyone was starting to enjoy my blog (I don't think so, but who knows 😅) or if you feel like I can't make up my mind. I'm not an idiot, it's just that I tried and I don't think it's working and I prefer to focus in other things.

Anyway, goodbye, readers!! Have a nice life filled with amazing books! 😁

The 7 Deadly Sins Book Tag

Hello, everyone! I hope you had/are having a nice day! 
Today, I bring you another book tag since I do not know what else I should post here. But book tags are always very interesting and it is always good to answer them, like this one. I found this tag through Goodreads, which lead me to Tessa's blog. I took the prompts from her post, so if you want to read her answers, click here.

Now, let's go!

Greed: What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?

My most inexpensive book is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis (€ 2.95/ $3.09), while my most expensive book is the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, by J.K. Rowling and Jim Kay (€34.24/ $35.90).

Wrath: What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Maybe with Colleen Hoover? I really loved Hopeless and Losing Hope, but they made me feel too much 😅

Gluttony: What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?

Harry Potter books, of course! Specially the first book.

Sloth: What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

Oh, yes... There are some books that I DNFed because I felt too lazy... One of them is The Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett. I can see its potential, but I had to give up reading it because I thought I had better books to read. And by better I mean lighter.

Pride: What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?

I talk about classics when I want to sound like an intellectual reader. 😅

Lust: What attributes do you find attractive in male characters?

If they are smart, funny, nerdy, geeky, nice... I'M IN! You know, people like Simon Lews from The Mortal Instruments series or Park from Eleanor & Park. I also love mysterious guys, like Rhysand from A Court of Thornes and Roses series.

I have only read the first 3 books so far, tho.

Envy: What book would you most like to receive as a gift?

I do not know. There are so many books that I would like to get! I have told my best friend to give me Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplays as my birthday gift. By the way, my birthday is coming! 🎉

Doctor Who Book Tag

Hello, everyone! Today I bring you a book tag I found when I was searching for good tags to post here. I am talking about Doctor Who Book Tag, which was created by Jamie from BecomingBookish! I decided to answer this tag because I love Doctor Who, even though I haven't watched the whole season 9 yet. Also, I have never watched Classic Who because it's not really available for me, which is a petty, but what can I do...
Anyway, let's do this!

The Classics: A classic book that still fits into YA literature.

 I'm currently reading Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott. It was published in two volumes and the first one was published in 1868 and the other one in 1869.  I think it could fit quite well into YA literature!

The 9th Doctor: A book you feel is very underrated.

I don't understand why he is so underrated. He is an amazing, sassy Doctor. I really loved him! But you know, it also saddens me that The Night Circus is underrated as well... It's a fantastic Fantasy book!


David Tennant (who played the 10th Doctor)A book or series that was hard to say goodbye to when it ended.

I chose The Hunger Games for this because I feel like Suzanne Collins should write more books based on this distopic society that she created. I mean, I think she could amazing prequels, you know? So, yes, it's sad that it's only a trilogy.

Matt Smith (who played the 11th Doctor): A book that made you smile.

The Little Prince makes me smile because it's so good, so pure. It's full of beautiful life lessons and I think that everyone should read it.

Rose and Ten: One of your ships that never sailed.

I don't think that has ever happened, honestly. 

Weeping Angel: A book that you blinked and it was over.

I remember when I first read Divergent I took, like, 3 days to read it. I'm a slow reader because I like to fully enjoy the book I'm reading, but I read Veronica Roth's book very quickly.

Daleks: A book that you want to exterminate.

I really don't like The Tiger's Curse, by Colleen Houck. It's poorly written and the characters are boring as hell and stupid.

Bowties are cool! (it's pretty much one of the 11th Doctor's catchphrases)A bandwagon you jumped on early.

I have to mention Divergent again because I loved it before it became a big thing.

Run you clever boy, and remember...A book with an awesome plot twist that you didn’t see coming.

I was shocked when I read the last chapter of Catching Fire. I didn't see that coming. It's not an awesome plot twist because it made me sad, but it still a brilliant one when we talk about plots.

Raxacoricofallapatorius (something that the 9th Doctor once said): A book with hard to pronounce names or titles.

Resultado de imagem para Raxacoricofallapatorius gifs

I have only read one Sarah J. Maas's book so far (A Court of Thorns and Roses) and I know she choosses very interestings names for her characters. But then, I can't pronounce them correctly!

The T.A.R.D.I.S (Time and Relative Dimension in Space): A book that took you back in time.

Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen! What a phenomenal classic!!!

This tag has another prompt, which is "Every Doctor needs a companion" and in this one we have to tag people, but I'm not going to do it. But if you want to answer this, go ahead!

That's if for today, everyone! If you have never watched Doctor Who, you definitely should! It will make you cry sometimes, but it has some fun moments and it's an amazing Sci-F tv show! 
See yaaaaa!

It's Sci-Fi Day!

In the USA, Sci-Fi Day is celebrated on 2nd January as a tribute to Isaac Asimov, an American author who was born in Russia and became one of the greastest Sci-Fi writers. He was the one who wrote I, Robot, which was turned into a movie where Will Smith played the main character. He also wrote the Foundation series.

I, Robot (Robot #0.1)
I, Robot was published in 1950 and it has nine short stories.

Here are some Sci-Fi books that I want to read this year (I do hope that I find out more Science Fiction novels to read since I love this genre):

  • The Lunar Chronicles, by Marissa Meyer, is a YA Fantasy series that takes place in a futuristic world where humans and cyborgs coexist. Each book of this series is based on a famous fairy tale, such as "Cinderela", "Little Red Hiding Hood", "Rapunzel" and "Snow White".
  • The orange book is the Portuguese edition of Golden Son, the second book of Red Rising trilogy, by Pierce Brown. I really loved the first book, so I can't wait to find out what Darrow is going to do next to release his people from opression in Mars. Yes, it takes place in Mars!!!
  • The red book is the Portuguese edition of Sky Key, also a second book of a trilogy, Endgame, that waas written by James Frey and Nils Johnston-Shelton. I also loved the first book and it makes me sad that many people don't read it because they immediately think it's like a copy of The Hunger Games. Let me assure that it is NOT a copy of Suzanne Collins' trilogy, I swear.

What about Sci-Fi tv shows? Well, for example, I love Doctor Who! If you don't know what it is, DW is a British tv show that follows the adventures of the Doctor, a Time-Lord, or a humanoid alien that can travel throught time and space thanks to his TARDIS, a space ship. He travels with human companions and he also fights against many enemies while saving many civilizations or people that simply need help.

Peter Capaldi is the current Doctor. He is the 12th version of the Doctor since this character can regenerate, so he doesn't die.

When it comes to movies, of course I have to talk about Star Wars. George Lucas did an amazing job when he created such a big and diversed universe full of weird creatures! I watched Rogue One in December and I loved it, and I'm glad that there are people that want to expand George Lucas's creation.

That's it for now! Happy Sci-Fi day!!!

Seasons of Book Blogging Tag

Hello, bookworms! I hope you are all enjoying the last hours of 2016 because we now can say goodbye to this very rude year...

Anyway, on Wordpress, I was tagged by Cristina from My Tiny Obsessions to do the Seasons of Book Blogging Tag! Thank you very much, Cristina!

Resultado de imagem para thank you gifs

Here's how it works:
  • Thank the creator (so she can see all of your answers!) and the person who tagged you.
  • Begin with the month in which you have been tagged and move forward from there!
  • State the best gift you’ve ever been given after you answer the question for your birthday month.
  • Tag whomever you’d like when you’re finished.. or else you’ll be “it” forever.
  • Have fun, of course!

So, thank you, J.Bookish, for creating this lovely tag!
Now, let's do this!

  • December is a time when friends and families come together and celebrate. Name one book you would give as a gift.
Of course that I would give Harry Potter and the Philsopher's Stone as a gift!!!

  • January begins a new year. Name a resolution you made this year and if you’ve kept it or not.
I set as my Goodreads goal 50 books when 2016. Then, I thought it would be impossible because it was on my 2nd semester of my first year as a college student and I knew that I would barely read this summer because I had people staying at my house, so I changed it for 35. Did I keep it? No, I didn't... I only read 24 books this year.... I feel so disappointed.

  • February is the month for relationships. Name your favourite book relationship: romantic, platonic or familial- your choice!
I really loved the familial relationship between Noah and Jude from I'll Give You the Sun, by Jandy Nelson. I loved how they overcame their problems together, even though they weren't really close for some years. But I am glad that, in the end, they started to understand each other's hearts.

Portuguese edition of I'll Give You the Sun.

  • March is the month for luck and new beginnings. Name a book or series that you would like to re-experience as if you’d never read it.
Let's not repeat Harry Potter, ok (LOL)? Well, I would like to re-experience The Hunger Games trilogy! Actually, I only read it once. I should read it again in 2017. Why not?

  • April is a spectacularly ordinary month. Name a book that was so over-hyped that it just could not live up to your expectations.
Everyone seems to love The Tiger's Curse series by Colleen Houck, but I really hated it... It has too many issues and I still don't get how many people love this series...

Resultado de imagem para the tiger's curse series

  • May is the month where flowers start to bloom. Name a book that was a pleasant surprise to you.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor, was indeed a pleasant surprise! I loved Laini's writing because it's very poetic and beautiful. I also loved the world she created.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)

  • June is the time to take a break. Name a book or genre you like to read when you just need to check out.
YA Contemporary is a good genre for when I just want a light read!

  • July is the time to celebrate your independence! Name a book that made you see fireworks.
Eleanor & Park made me giggle and, therefore, I saw fireworks of happiness. However, it has some sad moments. But still... I giggled! I really did!

Eleanor & Park

  • August is the hottest month of the year. Pick an up-and-coming author that you think will be the next hottest thing.
I have no idea...

  • September is the time for students to go back to school! Pick a book you read for school that you actually enjoyed.
I had to read Frankenstein for my second semester of college and I really enjoyed! Mary Shelley is truly a Queen!


  • October is a time to celebrate halloween! Pick one character that you would love to dress up as for halloween.
I would like to dress as Hermione Granger of course!

  • November is the month when we’re reminded of how much we have to be thankful for. Choose one book you’re grateful for having read and give a shout-out to the person who recommended it!
I don't want to mention Harry Potter again, so I chose The Diary of a Young Girl, by Anne Frank. I read it when I was 13, 14 and it was probably my first non-fiction read and it opened my eyes, for sure. Anne Frank is an inspiration, no doubt.

The Diary of a Young Girl

Yayyyy! It's over! Let's see who I tag:

That's it for now, guys! See yaaaaa!!!

2017 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge

Hello, everyone! I hope you are doing well!

Today I want to share with you the famous Popsugar Reading Challenge. Every year, Popsugar creates a reading challenge so that readers that feel lost about what they are going to read next can follow the list Popsugar prepared!

For 2017, they did it in a different way. They still have 40 prompts for readers to follow, but they know that there are many fast readers out there, so they came up with other 12 prompts, a.k.a Advanced section. The goal is to read any kind of book, but by following the giving prompts. 

If you want to share this experience with other people, you can follow Popsugar's Goodreads group, where they have supportive discussions and where people give ideas of books that you can read for each prompt. You can also use the hashtag #popsugarreadingchallenge on Instagram!

I think I will try this reading challenge. I have always wanted to participate in one, but I would always end up not doing it because I use college as a reason (ops). However, I really hope I read more in 2017 since I didn't really read much in 2016...

Who wants to participate in this reading challenge???

Here are the prompts:

If you follow these list, you will be able to read... 52 books!

Are you already planning what you are going to read in 2017? Would you like to share some titles here? Just write a comment!
