Top 5 Wednesday: I’d Totally Watch That Show

Yes, who hasn’t dream about their favorite book series, trilogies or any book related thing to come to life as a tv show?! I know i do, a lot. Being tthe huge fan of books and tv shows as i am, this is the best topic to talk about especially when the fall tv’s season ks about to start.

Now let’s talk about it!!

Half Bad (The Half Bad Trilogy, #1)The half bad trilogy by Sally Green. 

I’m obsessed with these books, okay? So, who do i pay for them to start casting actors for the characters? You see i believe there are two characters the world needs to meet, one is from these books; Gabriel Boutin. The other one is from a series i’ll talk in a minute. Yes, i need Gabriel and in my mind, everyone needs him. Also, obviously the story of the books is thrilling and amazing, i think it’s time for it to become a tv show or at least a movie. Magic, war, representation, and a lone half blood. I tell you these books are great. NOW GIVE ME MY SHOW.

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater.

The other character the world need to meet is obviously Ronan Lynch! Ha! Another amazing book series that would look fantastic in my tv as i watch it over and over again. No, seriously though no one thought about making this series a tv show? The books have one of the most original and unique stories.  Aw, now i made myself want this show too much.

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan.

Okay, i know this one had two terrible tries as movies. Still, even though many things didn’t work in the films, my first worry was the fact that you can’t really put all the information from the books in a movie, this series deserved better. In my personal opinion it deserved a tv show.  I realise it may be pretty pricey because of effects and all, but there are ten and now even more books that can be put into a lot of seasons and also a spin off for Magnus Chase. I mean, it’s a great saga. Please someone save it.

Mr. Mercedes (Bill Hodges Trilogy, #1)The Bill Hodges Trilogy by Stephen King. 

One of my *non-YA* fiction books is Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King. This being the first book of the Bill Hodges trilogy is the main reason i want this to be a tv show. Honestly, these books are amazing and adaptations of Stephen King’s works are great for tv shows and movies. Let’s make another Stephen King’s book into a tv show, this time, Mr. Mercedes, Clemence deserves to watch Brady Hartsfield on her screen each week, thank you.

Alive: The Final Evolution, Volume 1Alive! The Final Evolution by Tadashi Kawashima.

This one is one of my favorite manga series of all time. Sadly enough it was never adapted into an anime or a dorama. I thought it would never happen because 1.) the mangaka passed away so i don’t know anything about the rights to the series 2.) it is an *old* manga. I still have no idea about the first fact but now many old manga are being revived (see Parasyte and Berserk for example) so, why not this awesome manga?! I mean,  pretty please? Seriously this manga was my all time favorite for a very long time. Now i have many all time favorites, but.. Adapt this into an anime, please!

Well, that’s it for this week’s topic… what are the books you want to watch as tv shows?!

T5W: They Say You Can’t Choose Family But…

As always, topics for these entries are taken from the Top 5 Wednesday group on Goodreads . The group was created  Lainey. Now the group is under Samantha’s moderation, you can find her here.

Top 5 Wednesday: They Say You Can’t Choose Family But…

Sam and Dean Winchester SupernaturalThe Brothers –  Sam & Dean Winchester From Supernatural.

I want Sam and Dean as my brothers. They aren’t just really close, but they truly care and love each other, they are willing to give everything for one another, and that’s something i don’t have with my real siblings, but it’s something i really want.

Also, it would be totally awesome to go on hunts and take care of the family business with them both.

Daddy-Long-Legs (Daddy-Long-Legs, #1) The Grandparents – Judy Abbot & *Spoilers* Jervis Pendleton From Daddy-Long-Legs.

Two of the sweetest love birds to ever exist, i want them as my grandparents. I know they would be actually kind of old to actually be, but it would be so nice to listen to their times together, how they fell in love, how they actually meet and many other anecdots. Also, if they would give me the letters they wrote to each other and such, it would me a dream come true. I would be my grandparents’s biggest fan.

 

 

I Am Not A Serial Killer (John Cleaver, #1)The Cousin –  John Wayne Cleaver From I Am Not A Serial Killer.

I know it  is really strange, but i would totally want John as the weird cousin in the family (instead of her being me). Like, i know he has serial killer tendencies, but i find it extremely amusing and would be sort of awesome to have such an interesting person in the family… one that i can sort of study.

The Martian The uncle – Mark Watney From The Martian.

He would be the totally kick ass, most awesome uncle to have. After the adventures or misadventures he had in Mars, having to listen to all his stories about being a stranded astronaut would be completely the greatest thing that could ever happen.

The Blood of Olympus (The Heroes of Olympus, #5)Any member of the family – Any Character From The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus series.

I would want any of the characters in these books as any family member, especially if it’s one of the half bloods, or the gods themselves because then maybe i owuld be a demigod myself, which is sort of dangerous but completely cool. Okay, so i really want to have some amazing and interesting power to change and make my life more interesting. So, if one of them was a cousin, an aunt, an uncle or a sibling, that could be completely awesome.

T5W: Books I Won’t Be Reading [Anytime Soon]

So, this week’s topic was “books I will never read“, but i don’t think there’s really such a thing since my reading needs and likings are always changing… so right now i may not want to read some books but i may want one day… so, for today’s topic i’ll be naming books i won’t be reading anytime soon, but maybe someday.

Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2) Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo.

So, i read the first book and though i did like it, i’m not sure i’ll get around to reading  it anytime soon, mostly because there are books i enjoyed more than Shadow and Bone and i prefer to make time for books i really enjoyed and ones that look very promising… yet, i’m pretty positive i’ll want to finish this trilogy one day.

 

 

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) The Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book and i really want to get to it one day,  just to this day i’m having trouble with immersing myself in high fantasy, i know that for me to get immerse in it, i need to start reading these kind of books, but right now i’m really into Contemporary YA and urban fantasy… so for now it’ll have to wait in my TBR.

 

House of Leaves House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski.

I read great reviews of this book,  but they all commented also on how creepy and scary it is… yes i love to be scared, but mostly when there’s light outside and most of my reading i do at night, so this combo isn’t working at the moment for me, still i’ll be waiting for when i’m braver than i’m now and so be able to actually read it.

 

When We Collided When We Collided by Emery Lord.

I really want to read this book, but i don’t think i’m emotionally ready for it, so it sits in my TBR for now, because i cannot let it go, still every time i look at it my heart aches and i’m afraid i’ll break it if i try and read this book…. someday.

 

 

The Divine Comedy The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri.

I tried reading it, but it was too difficult for me, so before i give this classic another try i’ll read a bunch more of other classics, hoping one day i’ll be able to get into this one, which according to my understandings it’s very interesting and full of insights… i don’t know, i really want to be able to read it… i hope one day i get to.

 

 

And.. those are the books i won’t be reading anytime soon! What are the books you’ll never read?!

T5W: Books I Want to Read Before the End of the Year

Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Want to Read Before the End of the Year.

Holding Up the Universe Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven.

From the author pf my favorite standalone book ever (All The Bright Places) we are getting another YA book this year! I’m so excited! I love her writing simplicity so much, i cannot wait for this book… i already ordered it even if it won’t come out until October. I just… i really need this book in my hands and i’m pretty soon i’ll read it the moment it come to my hands, like All The Bright Places last year.

 

End of Days (Penryn and the End of Days, #3) End Of Days by Susan Ee.

I read the two previous installments of this series this year and i totally loved them, so i’m hoping i get to the final book on the trilogy before the end of the year. It would be pretty ironic if i don’t get to it before the end of days (of the year). Also, i’ll be pretty pissed with myself, because i was supposed to read three trilogies this year and i haven’t finished even one yet…

 

The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #2) The Hammer Of Thor by Rick Riordan.

Yes! Another book by Uncle Rick is coming out this year and i’ll be first in line to read it ASAP. Like, seriously, i’m really counting the days before it comes out! I totally loved the first book of the series last year, so i’m really looking forward to  this one… i miss Magnus  (both Chase&Bane) and Hearth and Samirah and Blitz! Man, i loved all those characters so much i cannot wait to read about them more stories!! I need this book now.

 

Rebel Belle (Rebel Belle, #1) Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins.

Don’t know i really feel i need to read this book before the year ends. Like seriously, i don’t know why.. i just know i do, i do … i need just to be on the right mood.. and maybe it gets to be the beginning of my second trilogy to be read this year.

 

 

Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel (Star Wars) Catalyst by James Luceno.

Since this is a prequel for the new Star Wars movie coming to theatres this December (Rogue One) i really need to read it before i get to watch the movie. It is coming a month before it, so i’ll be having plenty of time for it… Oh man, i want so badly to know the characters for the movie already! i cannot wait any longer for this books to come out!! I already ordered it, so i’ll be reading it ASAP.

 

 

Well, those are my MUST READ before the end of the year!! I truly hope my moods are in sync with this because or else i won’t be able to read anything tumblr_inline_ndns4kUN461rk7l06.

Well, that’s it for today’s topic!!

Man, i’ so fired up right now, i need to have these books with me already,.. i need to read them!!!

T5W: Favorite First Sentences

As always, topics for these entries are taken from the Top 5 Wednesday group on Goodreads . The group was created  Lainey. Now the group is under Samantha’s moderation, you can find her here.

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite First Sentences.

5.) “It was love at first sight. The first time Yossarian saw the chaplain he fell madly in love with him.” CATCH 22 by Joseph Heller.

I do realize it is more than a sentence, but you have to get the full two to understand why it is so amazing. These two sentences hooked me to the book in a way i thought was impossible at the time and the friendship between the two in the book is one of the most amazing things in it. And i wouldn’t have enjoyed it if the book wouldn’t begin with these words.

4.) “Mr. and Mrs. Dursley of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.” Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling.

You cannot not love this sentence. This sentence is everything. The first sentence form the Harry Potter series, such a plain sentence, such a muggle sentence and it freaking started all the magic.

3.) “Blue Sargent had forgotten how many times she’d been told that she would kill her true love.” The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.

Another important sentence in my life. For a while now The Raven Cycle has been one of my favorite books ever, and it was all because of that sentence that made me want to keep reading and reading until the very end of this amazing series. It is such a great first sentence, i cannot even start to explain it.

2.) “I am a blood-soaked girl.” The Sacred Lies Of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes.

Ha. The moment i read this sentence i was hooked. This is such an amazing book, and that line is just… i just i cannot find people that read the book? Like, being so good… i don’t know where the readers are. If you didn’t read it yet… isn’t that line just calling you to read the book right now?

1.) “One summer night I fell asleep, hoping the world would be different when I woke.” Aristotle&Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz.

Okay, so i’m guessing here, but i’m pretty sure, must of us have fall asleep thinking that at one moment or another. That’s the thing with this sentence. It is such a regular and normal sentence, such a normal feeling. And yet, that’s the way one of my favorite novels of all time, one that made laugh and cry more than many others started. Such a normal sentence, such a wonderful story behind it.

And…. that’s it for this week’s topic! Want to share your favorite first sentences? leave a comment!

Have a great day, lovelies ❤

Top 5 Wednesday: Authors I Am Waiting On Another Book From

Maggie Stiefvater Maggie Stiefvater

This lady, i love this lady. She wrote one of my favorite series ever; The Raven Cycle and i really want to read some other books from her that are that kind of books… sure i haven’t read all of her books yet but; she just said a few days ago she outlined a trilogy about Ronan Lynch, freaking Ronan Lynch, he is like the biggest ass*ole i love! I hope it really happens!

 

 

 

Rick Riordan  Rick Riordan

I read all his books, and i totally love them, so i’m always waiting for the  next adventure Uncle Rick is taking us to.

 

 

 

 

Patrick Ness Patrick Ness

All the books i read that were written by him mean a lot to me, even after a while, so i’d really like to read more books by him. He is an incredible author and i can’t wait for another book!

 

 

Rainbow Rowell Rainbow Rowell

There’s something about the characters she writes, i always find myself in them. I truly love her books, there’s some magic in her contemporary books that i don’t normally find in other authors. I’m hope her next book comes soon enough.

 

 

 

Stephanie Oakes Stephanie Oakes

A few months ago i read her debut novel, published last year and i fell in love with the way she writes, so i’m totally counting down the days until her next book comes out next year! I cannot believe we still have so much time until it comes out, i may lose my mind before.

 

 

T5W: Books I Feel Differently About [Now]

As always, topics for these entries are taken from the Top 5 Wednesday group on Goodreads . The group was created  Lainey. Now the group is under Samantha’s moderation, you can find her here.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Feel Differently About (Now)*

Twilight (Twilight, #1) Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.

I remember reading this book for the first time when i was about 18 and i really loved it. Then with time when i started reading other YA novels, the hype i felt about the book weakened and i sort of felt ashamed of liking it so much at the time. Then again, now that i’m more of a reader (as i always say i was a heavy Harry Potter reader for all my teenage years – i read pretty much only Harry Potter in loops from the age of 12 to 18) i read many other and great books, but my fondness for this series came back, mostly because these are such an easy read, like, if i get in a slump, i can always read them.. So yeah, now i understand that being ashamed of liking these books was mostly a waste of time, if i enjoy them, it’s just fine, it doesn’t matter what others may say about it.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.

When i first read the book all i could think was about how weird it was and how much i wasn’t enjoying reading it. But, a while after finishing it, when looking back and thinking about the whole plot and the characters i started to see how amazing the book really was. Like, honestly sometimes i just start thinking about it randomly and i cannot believe i thought about dropping it. There’s something incredibly magical and amazing in Neil Gaiman’s books and actually in everything he writes. If you haven’t read any of his books yet, i highly recommend it to you.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling.

For ages, this was my favorite Harry Potter book, like i could read it in loops or at least once a month (and it went on and on for years) i was obsessed. Now, when looking back i cannot believe my once favorite Harry Potter book was the one in which Harry fights a huge snake, like… i’m so freaking scared of snakes, how could i even read and imagine that fight? I know my reasons for this are quite.. unusual, but seriously, i cannot think about that fight without shaking these days. I still like it, it’s Harry Potter after all, but it is no longer my favorite book.

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1) City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.

The first time i read City of Bones and City of Ashes i wasn’t sure i even wanted to keep on reading the (first) trilogy. The second time i tried (mostly because of the hype on booktube) i really enjoyed it and started to obsess over the books, reading them a million times and like, not being able to think about anything else. No, after two years without reading this series i try to remember why i liked it so much, and though i really enjoy the characters (even if some are a little marys and garys) i think if i started reading them now for the first time i wouldn’t be able to actually finish the complete six books. I don’t know, i’m not even sure anymore.

Half Bad (The Half Bad Trilogy, #1) Half Bad by Sally Green.

If you told me when i was only 100 pages into this book that this trilogy would become my favorite trilogy of all time i would’ve laughed. At first, i really wasn’t enjoying much this book, i don’t know i felt something was off or something, but with time i learned to love it, to totally fall in love with it… Sure, now that i know i enjoyed reading it the begining doesn’t seem some scary or weird as it was at first, now i know whenever i read these books i’ll love them, because even if at first it didn’t seem like it, they actually changed something within me and i absolutely love them.

T5W: Favorite Character Names

As always, topics for these entries are taken from the Top 5 Wednesday group on Goodreads . The group was created  Lainey. Now the group is under Samantha’s moderation, you can find her here.

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Character Names

So, for this one i tried to find names that i love because of the name more than just because i love the character who has it… (otherwise it would all had been GABRIEL GABRIEL GABRIEL GABRIEL and Adam).

  • Adam from The Raven Cycle.

The meaning of the name isThe Hebrew word for “man”. It could be ultimately derived from Hebrew אדם (‘adam) meaning “to be red”, referring to the ruddy colour of human skin, or from Akkadian adamu meaning “to make”.

This is my absolute favorite name ever. Most of my stuff is called Adam, i don’t know why, like this name obsesses me a lot. I’m not kidding in all my ideas for stories the main charactet is always an Adam, then while really thinking about it i mosty change the name since i cannot have all my maipn characters named the same but you can get the idea.

  • Penryn from Penryn And The End Of Days.

The meaning of the name is: Penryn is a Cornish word meaning ‘headland’.

Since i started reading these books i cannot take the name away from my mind. Like seriously, i always enjoy my weird and unique names and this one is particularly amazing.

  • Minnow from The Sacred Lies Of Minnow Bly.

The meaning of the name is:  a very small fish found in lakes and rivers

Whomever thought of using this one as a name for a person.., my congratulations. Like honestly, though it feels like a very particular name that not everyone could put up with, i simply adore it.

Argh! I feel like i’m going to repeat myself a lot, but it’s just that all these names obsess me so much, i could tattoo them on my arms or something.

  • Seth from More Than This.

 In Hebrew the meaning of the name is: Anointed; compensation. Seth was the third son of Adam and Eve. Eve considered him to be a replacement for her dead son, Abel.

In Biblical the meaning of the name is: Put, who puts, fixed.

In Egyptian the meaning of the name is: The god of deserts, storms, disorder, violence and foreingers.

Must be because of the meanings the name has, but i find this name to be so powerful, i love it. There isn’t much to say about it, i’m fascinated by Egyptian mythology and Seth is a very interesting god in my opinion.. I think that’s why i love the name so much.

  • Sophie/Sophia from My Name Is Memory.

The meaning of the name is:  “Wisdom” in Greek. This was the name of an early, probably mythical, saint who died of grief after her three daughters were martyred. Legends about her probably arose as a result of a medieval misunderstanding of the phrase Hagia Sophia “Holy Wisdom”, which was the name of a large basilica in Constantinople.

Aahmmm, don’t know. Whenever i hear the name i just imagine this adorable little girl with a lot of books sitting in a huge library and that’s a feeling i get when i’m in libraries, like i’m a little girl again and it makes me happy, so having that image when hearing the name makes me happy too, i guess.

Well guys, those are my favorite character names, now i invite you to share yours! Leave your comments and links to your posts in the comments section!

T5W: Book Theme Songs

Top 5 Wednesday: Book Theme Songs

So, this one was a difficult one for me, mostly because i don’t listen to that much music and i don’t relate it much to the books i read, unless something really sad happens and then i do, but since i didn’t want to spoil deaths and such to others, i decided on finding a different kind of songs…

My Name Is Memory – Hello by Lionel Richie

I’ve been alone
With you inside my mind
And in my dreams, I’ve kissed your lips
A thousand time
I sometimes see you pass
Outsider my door

Hello
Is it me you’re looking for ?
I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
You’re all I’ve ever wanted
And my arms are open wide
Cause you know just what to say
And you know just what to do
And I want to tell you so much
I love you

I really feel the loneliness of this song, and it fits perfectly to how Daniel feels through the book, always by himself, always loving the same girl, always looking for her and hoping she may remember him or want him in any way.

 

All The Bright Places – Lucky For You by Espen Lind

Lucky for me
you’re amazing
you made me see
sparks come blazing
i was lucky to be
made to feel like i had been loved.

I don’treally want to comment on this one, so i’ll just say that this song always makes me think about the song in the book…it’s so lovely to be lovely… Nope, i still can’t.

Highly Illogical Behavior – World Behind My Wall

Whoa, whoa
They’re telling me it’s beautiful
I believe them but will I ever know
The world behind my wall?

Whoa, whoa
The sun will shine like never before
One day I will be ready to go
See the world behind my wall.

There was something about the book that reminded me of the song when i listened to it. Both talk about wanting to do something, yet not being sure if they can do it. Still the wanting is there, pushing to come through.

A Monster Calls – The Show Must Go On

I guess i’m learning, i must be warmer now
i’ll soon be turning, round the corner now
outside the dawn breaking
but inside in the dark i’m aching to be free
the show must go on
the show must go on
inside my heart is breaking
my make-up may be flaking
but my smile still stays on.

There isn’t much to say about it, i think as much as the book the song is about coming on terms with what’s about to happen…

The Catcher In The Rye – Bad Reputation by Joan Jett

I don’t give a damn ’bout my reputation 

You’re living in the past it’s a new generation
A girl can do what she wants to do and that’s
What I’m gonna do
An’ I don’t give a damn ‘ bout my bad reputation.

Haha, this one… i didn’t know what else to choose.. i was running out of ideas of songs and books to relate one another, so i went for the easy choice… this song always reminded me of the Holden’s mindset, so i guess it just works.

 

And that’s the end of another Top 5 Wednesday…

Do you give theme songs to the books you read? to all of them or only the special ones? … Where do you find the songs to do so? Share your answers in the comments section! I’ll be really happy to know about your experiences 🙂

Have a great day! ‘Til Next Time 😉

Top 5 Wednesday: My Babies.

 Jason Grace from The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

I feel like a i’m the only person that likes this dork. I mean, yeah, he is kind of dorky and all but he is such a good soul, even if he feels important because of his dad. Many people complain he doesn’t do much, like in the last book he was always fainting and such, but it isn’t his fault, in any case it’s the author’s fault. I don’t know, … i find his character really cute, being all comprehensive with Nico Di Angelo in The House Of Hades and all, i thin khe is a good leader, maybe not the best, but he did what he could with what he had, and all that was expected from a demigod as himself… i mean.. come one, so much expectation from the son of Jupiter, give the child a break!

Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling

Haha, wherever i find a Harry Potter fan, they always seem to hate Ron,… like, Harry Potter may be the only book i have in common with people in my real life and every person that read them hates Ron… I think it’s because he is so human in comparison to some “perfect” characters in the books … like, people hate him for feeling envious of a friend that has everything he ever wanted? Okay, wouldn’t you?  or when he left because he has jelaous of Hermione and Harry – because of the locket- seriously…? i mean.. leaving for sure wasn’t a way of doing something on the matter, but hey, again, the guy it’s only human, and i think he deserves better from the readers.

 Frank Zhang from The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

My baby. It’s not that i have to protect him from people that doesn’t like him, but more like explain to people why he is so precious… i think from all the characters on the series he is the most underrated. For all I know people may care more about Octavian than him, and that’s just.. no. I don’t know.. in my opinion Frank has so much potential, he is so brave, so true, sucha good and loyal friend, and i just don’t understand why people don’t give a damn about him! OH, how i wish he would appear in the new series, such a great background story.. such wasted potential #SaveFrankZhangFromOblivion.

 

Holden Caufield from The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger.

I understood people doesn’t like Holden the moment i asked someone if they had read the book… it was a while ago, after i finished it for the first time and i was in love with Holden – i used to write him letters .. nevermind – and te person was like “are you insane? that kid was a psycho” … eeeehhhmmm… i never saw it that way, and since then i had to argue with a lot of people because they all share the same idea… i don’t know. It’s weird, because his character opened my eyes to so much when i read the book, i cannot understand why people hate it so much, maybe they don’t want to hear what the character has to say and that’s why they hate him so much…

 Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

So, yeah… my last one isn’t a character but a series … i think this is sort of cheating but nevermind.

I’m one of the few people that actually really likes this series (?) … because of a bad second book a lot of people stopped reading the series, and i feel like it’s a shame because the third book and the forth one are actually really good books and they are missing a lot because of a bad sequel… and i know it was bad, i’m not saying it’s not… but really, give it another chance, because it gets so much better! and i’malways trying to tell people this, but once again, i don’t have many readers around in myreal life, so … let me tell you, these books are good, sure the second one wasn’t great, but then it’s so much better, so good… so good…!!
