Book Blogger Hop | Theme Songs For Books?

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by CoffeeAddictedWriter. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

This Week’s Topic is:

Have you ever searched out theme songs for your favorite books?(submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)

This is such a fun kind of question.

If i only did it.

Like, i would give you some of my playlists to listen to and hope you see what i see in the music i chose. But sadly, i listen to very little music and it never goes with the kind of books i read, like one time i decided Du riechst so gut (You smell so good) by Rammstein to be the perfect anthem to James in Twilight, but like, that’s the only time i think i ever give a playlists or more like a song to a character.

Other than that i like to imagine Simon and Bram dance to So Emotional or You Spin Me Round (Like A Record).

It’s really funny and i totally enjo it. But as i said, i’m not really one to do that kind of thing.

If i were someone who listened to more and different kinds of music i would totally choose playlists to the books i read. But i listen to like 5 and a half bands, so i don’t have much to choose from.

Sorry this isn’t such a great post where i share a ton of new music to you 🤷‍♀️. I’m just not that kind of person.

In case you wonder what music do i listen to:

  • Rammstein
  • Queen
  • X-Japan
  • My Chemical Romance
  • Linkin Park
  • Luna Sea (sometimes)

That’s it.

Do you search theme songs for your favorite books? You are more than invited to share them down below in the comments!

Lost In The Never Woods By Aiden Thomas

Lost in the Never Woods

LOST IN THE NEVER WOODS BY AIDEN THOMAS

Genre: Retellings, Mystery
Pages: 384
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Rating: 3.87 stars (Goodreads)

Summary: When children go missing in the small coastal town of Astoria, people look to Wendy for answers.

It’s been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods, but when the town’s children start to disappear, the questions surrounding her brothers’ mysterious circumstances are brought back into light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road, and gets pulled into the mystery haunting the town.

Peter, a boy she thought lived only in her stories, claims that if they don’t do something, the missing children will meet the same fate as her brothers. In order to find them and rescue the missing kids, Wendy must confront what’s waiting for her in the woods.

It took me a while a understand how to feel about this book. I can understand why Cemetery Boys was picked to be the first published by the author, since if this one was the first book i read by Aiden i don’t know if i would keep reading books by them.

This is the story of Peter Pan, but a different one, and i gotta say that i read Peter Pan previously this year so i could understand what was going on with this story. I adored the idea of Peter Pan before i read the original book, and i LOVED the story it told when i read it, but i lost a little of the magic because of this book.

Peter Pan isn’t supposed to grow up, which happens to him in this book because his shadow escaped from him and became evil. (I don’t think that’s a spoiler). In this book Wendy, an 18 y/o girl who lost her brothers at the age of 12 meets again Peter although she has no memories of him, only the stories her mother used to tell her and her brothers of him.

The story is pretty simple, children start getting lost in the woods, and Peter appears and tells Wendy she has to help him. He never forgot her, which changes all the dinamics of Peter Pan for me and it feels kind of wrong.

Please don’t get me wrong, i did enjoy reading the book, i just, Peter Pan it’s the nostalgic idea of him not rememebering to come back, or not realizing he is taking with him a different person, because he has the memory of a child and sometimes he forgets things that happen.

Since Peter was growing up i didn’t know how to feel about the story, it felt somewhat wrong.

I know the story of Peter Pan is somehow sad, and it is supposed to be because we all grow up, but he stays a little boy, it’s like the little prince, a sad story with a great idea behind.

But i’m not here to talk about the original story, am i?

So the mystery is somewhat obvious, the shadow is kidnapping children, and Wendy needs to help Peter stop it.

Something a person told me about the books Aiden writes is that there is a story happening but somehow a lot of little things that makes no sense while waiting for the big finale like, why would they stop to eat ice-cream when something like that is happening? Why wouldn’t they just face the shadow as soon as possible? Why did the days have to pass by without them doing anything?

I feel like the story dragged a little at times, to make a full book.

Still, it is an entertaining book, but not more than that.

I didn’t feel the magic of Peter Pan in it.

Overall i give it 3.5 stars, i was more impressed by Cemetery Boys than this one.

What about you? Have you read the book? What was your impression of it? Leave your comment down below!

Where It All Lands

Release Date: July 6th

Stevie Rosenstein has never made a true friend. Never fallen in love. Moved from city to city by her father’s unrelenting job, it’s too hard to care for someone. Trust in anything. The pain of leaving always hurts too much. But she’ll soon learn to trust, to love.

Twice.

Drew and Shane have been best friends through everything. The painful death of Shane’s dad. The bitter separation of Drew’s parents. Through sleepaway camps and family heartache, basketball games and immeasurable loss, they’ve always been there for each other.

When Stevie meets Drew and Shane, life should go on as normal.

But a simple coin toss alters the course of their year in profound and unexpected ways.

Told in dual timelines, debut author Jennie Wexler delivers a heartbreaking and hopeful novel about missed opportunities, second chances, and all the paths that lead us to where we are.

Rise to the Sun

Release Date: July 6th

Three days. Two girls. One life-changing music festival.

Olivia is an expert at falling in love . . . and at being dumped. But after the fallout from her last breakup has left her an outcast at school and at home, she’s determined to turn over a new leaf. A crush-free weekend at Farmland Music and Arts Festival with her best friend is just what she needs to get her mind off the senior year that awaits her.

Toni is one week away from starting college, and it’s the last place she wants to be. Unsure about who she wants to become and still reeling in the wake of the loss of her musician-turned-roadie father, she’s heading back to the music festival that changed his life in hopes that following in his footsteps will help her find her own way forward.

When the two arrive at Farmland, the last thing they expect is to realize that they’ll need to join forces in order to get what they’re searching for out of the weekend. As they work together, the festival becomes so much more complicated than they bargained for, and Olivia and Toni will find that they need each other, and music, more than they ever could have imagined.

Packed with irresistible romance and irrepressible heart, bestselling author Leah Johnson delivers a stunning and cinematic story about grief, love, and the remarkable power of music to heal and connect us all.

Any Way the Wind Blows (Simon Snow, #3)

Release Date: July 6th

In Carry On, Simon Snow and his friends realized that everything they thought they understood about the world might be wrong. And in Wayward Son, they wondered whether everything they understood about themselves might be wrong.

In Any Way the Wind Blows, Simon and Baz and Penelope and Agatha have to decide how to move forward.

For Simon, that means deciding whether he still wants to be part of the World of Mages — and if he doesn’t, what does that mean for his relationship with Baz? Meanwhile Baz is bouncing between two family crises and not finding any time to talk to anyone about his newfound vampire knowledge. Penelope would love to help, but she’s smuggled an American Normal into London, and now she isn’t sure what to do with him. And Agatha? Well, Agatha Wellbelove has had enough.

Any Way the Wind Blows takes the gang back to England, back to Watford, and back to their families for their longest and most emotionally wrenching adventure yet.

This book is a finale. It tells secrets and answers questions and lays ghosts to rest.

Carry On was conceived as a book about Chosen One stories; Any Way the Wind Blows is an ending about endings. About catharsis and closure, and how we choose to move on from the traumas and triumphs that try to define us.

XOXO

Release Date: July 13th

Cello prodigy Jenny has one goal: to get into a prestigious music conservatory. When she meets mysterious, handsome Jaewoo in her uncle’s Los Angeles karaoke bar, it’s clear he’s the kind of boy who would uproot her careful plans. But in a moment of spontaneity, she allows him to pull her out of her comfort zone for one unforgettable night of adventure…before he disappears without a word.

Three months later, when Jenny and her mother arrive in South Korea to take care of her ailing grandmother, she’s shocked to discover that Jaewoo is a student at the same elite arts academy where she’s enrolled for the semester. And he’s not just any student. He’s a member of one of the biggest K-pop bands in the world—and he’s strictly forbidden from dating.

When a relationship means throwing Jenny’s life off the path she’s spent years mapping out, she’ll have to decide once and for all just how much she’s willing to risk for love.

The Taking of Jake Livingston

Release Date: July 13th

Get Out meets Danielle Vega in this YA horror where survival is not a guarantee.

Jake Livingston is one of the only Black kids at St. Clair Prep, one of the others being his infinitely more popular older brother. It’s hard enough fitting in but to make matters worse and definitely more complicated, Jake can see the dead. In fact he sees the dead around him all the time. Most are harmless. Stuck in their death loops as they relive their deaths over and over again, they don’t interact often with people. But then Jake meets Sawyer. A troubled teen who shot and killed six kids at a local high school last year before taking his own life. Now a powerful, vengeful ghost, he has plans for his afterlife–plans that include Jake. Suddenly, everything Jake knows about ghosts and the rules to life itself go out the window as Sawyer begins haunting him and bodies turn up in his neighborhood. High school soon becomes a survival game–one Jake is not sure he’s going to win. 

The Final Girl Support Group

Release Date: July 13th

A fast-paced, thrilling horror novel that follows a group of heroines to die for, from the brilliant New York Times bestselling author of The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires.

In horror movies, the final girl is the one who’s left standing when the credits roll. The one who fought back, defeated the killer, and avenged her friends. The one who emerges bloodied but victorious. But after the sirens fade and the audience moves on, what happens to her?

Lynnette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre twenty-two years ago, and it has defined every day of her life since. And she’s not alone. For more than a decade she’s been meeting with five other actual final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, putting their lives back together, piece by piece. That is until one of the women misses a meeting and Lynnette’s worst fears are realized–someone knows about the group and is determined to take their lives apart again, piece by piece.

But the thing about these final girls is that they have each other now, and no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.

You and Me at the End of the World

Release Date: July 20th

This is no ordinary apocalypse…

Hannah Ashton wakes up to silence. The entire city around her is empty, except for one other person: Leo Sterling. Leo might be hottest boy ever (and not just because he’s the only one left), but he’s also too charming, too selfish, and too devastating for his own good, let alone Hannah’s.

Stuck with only each other, they explore a world with no parents, no friends, and no school and realize that they can be themselves instead of playing the parts everyone expects of them. Hannah doesn’t have to be just an overachieving, music-box-perfect ballerina, and Leo can be more than a slacker, 80s-glam-metal-obsessed guitarist. Leo is a burst of honesty and fun that draws Hannah out, and Hannah’s got Leo thinking about someone other than himself for the first time.

Together, they search for answers amid crushing isolation, but while their empty world may appear harmless . . . it’s not. Because nothing is quite as it seems, and if Hannah and Leo don’t figure out what’s going on, they might just be torn apart forever. 

The Halloween Moon

Release Date: July 20th

Esther has it all planned out, from her costume to her candy-collecting strategy. But when the night rolls around, something feels . . . off.

No one is answering their door. The moon is an unnatural shade of orange. Strange children wander the streets, wearing creepy costumes that might not be costumes at all. And it seems like the only people besides Esther who are awake to see it all are her best friend, her school bully, and her grown-up next-door neighbor.

Together, this unlikely crew must find a way to lift the curse that has been placed upon their small town before it’s too late. Because someone is out to make sure Halloween never comes to an end. And even Esther doesn’t want to be trapped in this night forever.

Let’s Talk Bookish | Prologues & Epilogues… Are They Necessary?

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books & Dani @ Literary Lion, where a topic is presented each week and we get to share our opinions on it and spread some love among others’s opinions too!

This Week’s Topic is:

PROLOGUES AND EPILOGUES: ARE THEY NECESSARY? (SUGGESTED BY FIVES @ DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE)

Such a great question.

Let’s start with the prologues, since i feel these are too different to talk about together.

So when is a prologue necessary? I never felt like a prologue was out of place. Many times the prologue isn’t about the main character or sets the feeling and set up for the rest of the story, like something you would have to know but the mc doesn’t necessary know or need to know or it happened too long ago so it makes sense they weren’t there (the mc).

I feel they are necessary sometimes. Like, if you are about to tell me something about the main character you can also start by chapter 1. I’m not gonna lie. But yeah, i feel like often, they are necessary.

I mean, i see prologues as necessary especially in fatasy or science fiction novels, a way of introducing us into a world that isn’t ours necessarily and wemay get lost if we don’t know some things before we start the reading. I feel some books wouldn’t be the same without it.

For example, there is the prologue of Daddy-Long-Legs, which was necessary because Jerusha’s life needed to be told before we get to her letters. Sure it doesn’t say “prologue” but Blue Wednesday is for me a prologue. There she sees her benefactor, and without that part things wouldn’t be the same in the story. Also, it wouldn’t be the same if she told them in a letter. I feel it was the right move to make there a prologue.

I can’t think of many books with prologues right now (the problem of answering a question…you are always missing examples), but i think the one i just gave makes a lot of sense and it was right on place.

As for epilogues… I don’t know. I feel since most of the time there a time skip between the story and the epilogue, they are necessary too. I mean, yeah, you have the ending of the story sure, but do you? After all the way you got with the characters you don’t just want to know how the story ends but after.

I remember Adam Silvera saying once he doesn’t know what his characters do after he finish telling a story, and that feels so weird, like, don’t you know how are they doing a few days, months, years after? I would want to know how my characters are doing.

Again always for the best, like i don’t want an epilogue where they tell me the main couple broke up after three days and that was it. I want to see the characters having a little of a good time, you see them struggle all the way through the bookm don’t they deserve aa little fun? A good time? A good moment? I feel like they do.

I feel like epilogues are a way of saying, yes, they have been through a lot but it all way worth it. Don’t worry about them, they are doing just fine. Look, they are having the time of their lives! or everything went back to normal! YAY!

Also, sometimes epilogues are an opening for a different story. Like, if you speak about a side character that you could esaily forget about but you bring them back in an epic epilogue, you have now an opening to a different story.

So overall, i feel like used in the right stories prologues and epilogues can be the right choice. I’m still to find one that doesn’t feel in place, but we’ll see. You can never truly know until you find them.

What is your opinion on prologues and epilogues? Leave the link to your own post or just a comment down below!

July’s TBR!

I can’t belive half the year has passed by already… we are already in July! Wow, these past 6 months i’ve read a lot more than expected and i hope he rest of the year goes the same way.

This month i’m getting surgery so i’ll be having a lot of free time so i hope to read a little more than normal… for this i’ve planned not only a july TBR but also a post i’ll be sharing with you in a few days about 7 books i’m taking with me on my “vacaction”. Those books though aren’t part of my TBR for the month, because i don’t know how much i’ll read if i’ll read while i’m out at all.

So, for now i leave you my actual TBR for the month!

Wayward Son (Simon Snow, #2)

Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after…

So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?

What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light…

That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West.

They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place…

With Wayward Son, Rainbow Rowell has written a book for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And a book for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first. It’s another helping of sour cherry scones with an absolutely decadent amount of butter.

Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero’s journey might be over – but your life has just begun.

Kate in Waiting

Contrary to popular belief, best friends Kate Garfield and Anderson Walker are not codependent. Carpooling to and from theater rehearsals? Environmentally sound and efficient. Consulting each other on every single life decision? Basic good judgment. Pining for the same guys from afar? Shared crushes are more fun anyway.

But when Kate and Andy’s latest long-distance crush shows up at their school, everything goes off script. Matt Olsson is talented and sweet, and Kate likes him. She really likes him. The only problem? So does Anderson.

Turns out, communal crushes aren’t so fun when real feelings are involved. This one might even bring the curtains down on Kate and Anderson’s friendship.

Truly Devious (Truly Devious, #1)

Ellingham Academy is a famous private school in Vermont for the brightest thinkers, inventors, and artists. It was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early twentieth century tycoon, who wanted to make a wonderful place full of riddles, twisting pathways, and gardens. “A place,” he said, “where learning is a game.”

Shortly after the school opened, his wife and daughter were kidnapped. The only real clue was a mocking riddle listing methods of murder, signed with the frightening pseudonym “Truly, Devious.” It became one of the great unsolved crimes of American history.

True-crime aficionado Stevie Bell is set to begin her first year at Ellingham Academy, and she has an ambitious plan: She will solve this cold case. That is, she will solve the case when she gets a grip on her demanding new school life and her housemates: the inventor, the novelist, the actor, the artist, and the jokester. But something strange is happening. Truly Devious makes a surprise return, and death revisits Ellingham Academy. The past has crawled out of its grave. Someone has gotten away with murder. 

The two interwoven mysteries of this first book in the Truly Devious series dovetail brilliantly, and Stevie Bell will continue her relentless quest for the murderers in books two and three.

New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson weaves a delicate tale of murder and mystery in the first book of a striking new series, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie and E. Lockhart.

The Taking of Jake Livingston

Get Out meets Danielle Vega in this YA horror where survival is not a guarantee.

Jake Livingston is one of the only Black kids at St. Clair Prep, one of the others being his infinitely more popular older brother. It’s hard enough fitting in but to make matters worse and definitely more complicated, Jake can see the dead. In fact he sees the dead around him all the time. Most are harmless. Stuck in their death loops as they relive their deaths over and over again, they don’t interact often with people. But then Jake meets Sawyer. A troubled teen who shot and killed six kids at a local high school last year before taking his own life. Now a powerful, vengeful ghost, he has plans for his afterlife–plans that include Jake. Suddenly, everything Jake knows about ghosts and the rules to life itself go out the window as Sawyer begins haunting him and bodies turn up in his neighborhood. High school soon becomes a survival game–one Jake is not sure he’s going to win.

Also, i already decided which classic will i be reading this month, but i’ll leave it hanging so you wait for my post #ReadingTheClassics#7.

As i’m going into surgery and full reading mode i hope to leave prepared as many posts as i can. I don’t want to you forget about me that easily!

Have a great reading month ~ ♥

I’m very ambivalent about this one, i finished it yesterday and i don’t know how to truly feel about it.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday | June 30th, 2021

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

THIS WEEK I’M WAITING ON…

The Final Girl Support Group

A fast-paced, thrilling horror novel that follows a group of heroines to die for, from the brilliant New York Times bestselling author of The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires.

In horror movies, the final girl is the one who’s left standing when the credits roll. The one who fought back, defeated the killer, and avenged her friends. The one who emerges bloodied but victorious. But after the sirens fade and the audience moves on, what happens to her?

Lynnette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre twenty-two years ago, and it has defined every day of her life since. And she’s not alone. For more than a decade she’s been meeting with five other actual final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, putting their lives back together, piece by piece. That is until one of the women misses a meeting and Lynnette’s worst fears are realized–someone knows about the group and is determined to take their lives apart again, piece by piece.

But the thing about these final girls is that they have each other now, and no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.

Al the books i read by this author were amazing, and i totally loved them so i’m really looking forward to this one! The release date for the book is July 13th, 2021. Although i think i’ll read it in October… the spoooookie month.

Book Blogger Hop | Staying Up Late To Read

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by CoffeeAddictedWriter. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

This Week’s Topic is:

 How long have you stayed up to read a book? (submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)

I gotta admit i’m not a huge fan of staying up too late for anything. Seen as i’m a morning person i rather wait and read in the day.

I know books can be very persuasive, i mean…. if it’s a series you really love and you just HAVE TO KNOW what happens next, i can understand people staying too late for that, but i cannot remember doing so in a really long time.

It’s not that i didn’t do it, ever, i just can’t really remember when was the last time.

I mean, obviously i stayed past my sleeping time to read but not more than 1am, or even less. You see i work really earily and i need my sleep because otherwise i may commit a ton of mistakes and since i workwith money that wouldn’t be good.

I think the last time i stayed up until more than 1am was when reading Half Lost by Sally Green. Half Lost is the third and last book in the Half Life trilogy and that was a book the moment i started reading i couldn’t stop until it was over. Oh man, that ending, i can’t get over it after years.

If you ask me which books i stayed up too late to read, i’ll have to admit it was always the Harry Potter books, more than any other. Like the last three books were totally worth stay up for.

But i’ll tell you what. Like with tv shows that are up at hours too earily. I prefer to wake up really earily in the morning to keep on reading than staying up too late. At my age (one could think i was that old, lol) i prefer being up all day reading than staying at night, it’s just the fact that being in bed just makes me sleepy and i can’t stay up too much. I prefer sitting in my sofa and reading or in the bus. Also, audiobooks are a great way of finishing books really quickly because you can decide the speed you put to the reader, and so books tend to go a little faster.

So yeah, i don’t stay up much.

What about you? Do you stay up much to read books? Leave your comment down below!
