The Infinity Dreams Award – the second!

Hello 🙂 It’s me again, late as usual, but with a tag! HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN SINCE THE LAST ONE?! (please don’t answer that, haha!)

Anyway, one of my best online friends, the amazing Jess from the Mud and Stars, tagged me on The Infinity Dreams Award! If you never heard about her blog, you totally don’t read mine should give her a go, I’m sure you’ll love her as much as I do! Thanks for the nomination, my dear! 😀 ❤

Rules:

  • Thank and link the blog that nominated you
  • Tell us 11 facts about yourself
  • Answer the questions that were set for you to answer
  • Nominate 11 bloggers and set questions for them

My 11 facts

 1) I’m addicted to Diet Coke and sometimes it increases highly the intensity of my fangirlings and my capacity of shipping pretty much anyone anywhere. Example? Okay. There was I watching Madagascar 3, on my third can of Diet Coke, when the following thought crosses my mind: “oh my, Alex and Vitale would make an awesome couple with all the angst and sexiness about them!”

madagascar31.jpg

Seriously. At that moment, I knew it was too late.

 2) I’m a social butterfly in my offline life and an introvert on the online life. I know, it makes no sense at all, but I never seem to know what to type or who to talk to on internet. Example? Sure, sure. Goodreads’ book clubs. I’ve been to three and don’t remember saying a word to any of them despite actively following their discussions. Should I say something? When? Spoilers allowed? Am I supposed to read the book they chose now or can I do it anytime?

I just don’t know what I’m doing.

 3) I love to start collections. Since I’m a child, I’ve been collecting the most weird stuff and some other cool ones. Sometimes I cool off about a collection just to dive back in some months later. I know, I know: examples. Well, I collect stationary stuff, notebooks, bookmarks, Pokémon cards, thematic magnets of cities, states and countries, perfumes, sea shells, rings… My most new and unfortunately lacking collection is my Funko collection. I only own three: Snape, Jessica Rabbit and Lilo. I have another one coming in that I won today (literally this morning, haha!), but I wished I could afford many more.

those are my baby funkos so far 🙂

 4) I’ve been a Slytherin since I’m 7 and I really wished Draco Malfoy had a true friend.

 5) I feel I’m running out of things to say and we are only in the middle of this list.

 6) I have such a fondness for lgbt love in general because I feel this is the last true social barrier for a relationship to actually work. If I’m reading contemporary romances and it is all about the couple getting together with some insecurity drama to it, I just don’t feel like reading it. I don’t see a valid problem, you know? But a lgbt couple has yet to deal with a lot of shit from society – from their own homes, in many occasions. That’s why I pin harder for them 🙂

 7) This last month, I’ve been obsessed with a song by Blake Lewis, called I Want You. If I could hear merman sing, I bet it would sound as beautiful and alluring as that song. I’ve actually danced while walking in the middle of the street several times when it came on my iPod. My neighborhood must think I’m on drugs or something, haha!

 8) I hate clothes shopping, but never take me along to buy shoes. I’ll end up taking the whole store if I can. And then I’m stuck with good things to wear only on my feet. It’s not unusual to see me in outfits 7 or 8 years old and a brand shinning pair of shoes along them.

 9) I love big nails. I used to be a heavy bitter until elementary school, but I had this offline best friend (hi, Hachi!) that wore her nails longer even as a child. I thought it was so beautiful and awesome that I put on my head that I wanted to have beautiful nails too, with or without anxiety attacks. I don’t know how, but somewhere along the way until high school, I stopped biting my nails and started doing them myself. Now I’m the queen of the big nails and share Hachi’s throne ❤

f hits nails
this is my regular nail size nowadays 🙂

 10) Sometimes, I pretend that I can stick every character that I really like in a book inside Hogwarts. As I read, I imagine which House the character would go into, who would be their friends and all. And, of course, there aren’t only Harry Potter characters in Hogwarts at my head. Every character that I like and can remember is there to welcome the new comer. I’m such a loser sometimes hahahaha!

 11) The Book Adventures of Annelise Lestrange will reach its first year of life next month! I am so excited *–*

Jess’ Questions

1) Which fictional character is most like you?

That’s a hard question, haha! But searching my read books shef at Goodreads brain, I’d say that the character that hit the closest to my own personality and problems was Isis Blake, from Love Me Never – review here! I was so stunned with her that I actually teared up a bit at random times. She was so me, in both good and bad. I wish she could just pop out of the pages and become the twin sister that I’ve ever wanted, haha!

love me never

2) Which books have made you cry?

I did a list with ten on my last Top 10 Tuesday, haha! You can read about those books here 🙂 (Which I know you already did, Jess <3)

 3) Has a book ever filled you with rage?

Oooh, many times. I’m the type that talks with the book as I read, so I naturally rage at them too when needed, haha!

4) Who is your favourite fictional couple?

Oh, dear. PLEASE DON’T MAKE ME CHOOSE AMONG MY CHILDREN LOL I’m kidding. If I was forced to stick with a single fictional couple forever, I’d choose Max and Tristan from All In With The Duke. I lost count on how many times I’ve read this book since it came out, haha!

all in with the duke

5) Has there been a book which has genuinely scared you?

Yes, a couple of times. But the one that messed me up the most and wouldn’t allow me to sleep after reading was The Vanishing Game. It was surreal and not scary at all, but it disturbed me in a fashion that I was left paranoid for over a week after finishing it. THAT was scary, haha! But really spooked, I think it was A Stranger in the Mirror, by Sydney Sheldon. The book is a suspense drama or something, but seeing the castle of cards falling in the end spooked me on a personal level. Hm, I feel I wasn’t helpful at all on this answer, sorry!

6) Favourite fictional animal/fantastical creature?

Hmm, another hard one. I’m not really a sucker for magical pets – I like the regular ones like dogs and cats, haha! But I do like unicorns and dragons. Unicorns have been my thing since I was a child, but dragons were creatures that I learned to appreciate with Hachiyumi. She loves them to the core and I can’t help but to find them fascinating through her eyes 🙂

7) Favourite fantasy world?

Harry Potter’s, of course! How can anyone not love Hogwarts?!

8) Which book completely exceeded your expectations?

The last one was Kiss Kill Love Him Still. I so didn’t expect to be as hooked as I was! =O and now I’m crazily reading the sequel BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW WHO KILLED JACKSON! No times for reviews yet, but they will be here soon enough, haha!

9) Are there any books you’ve disliked from an author you usually love?

All the time, unfortunately. Some examples are:

  • Meg Cabot: I only like her books when she goes paranormal, but then I REALLY LOVE THEM;
  • Anne Rice: I loved Interview With The Vampire and related books, but hated The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty;
  • Stephenie Meyer: loved Twilight 1, hated all the other books in the series and The Host;
  • Kiera Cass: loved The Selection trilogy and have really strong hate feelings towards The Heir.

 10) What’s your favourite book in a genre you don’t normally read?

Another hard one, I kind of read almost anything, haha! But okay, I usually hate self-help books, but I love The Blue Day Book! It has the most adorable animal pictures on it and it took me years to realize that it was indeed a self-help book, haha! Especially with Brazilian’s translated title, that hardly announces the book as such.

11) If you had another blog, what would you write about it instead of books?

I actually have another abandoned blog written in Brazilian Portuguese and it had all sorts of nerd things, haha! News, reflections upon life, reviews, fashion analysis… It was definitely nerd, haha!

That was a long run! I really don’t know who to tag right now – it’s 4:25AM and I really want to know who killed Jackson, so I’d like to everyone that never has been nominated before and/or people who would like to play along with The Infinity Dreams Award to speak up in the comments, please! Tomorrow I’ll be back with 11 questions and to edit this post and make nominations 🙂

Thanks for reading and I love you guys! Also, love you, Jess! ❤

The Sunshine Blog Award!

Hi, there! Welcome to my weekly book tag! Only that today it is actually an award! Thanks so much to my lovely friend Kim, from The Spines Breaker, for nominating me for The Sunshine Blog Award ❤ If you don’t already, just give her a follow, she’s amazing!

sunshine blogger award.jpg

Da Rulez:

~> Thank whoever nominated you. (thanks, Kim!!)

~>Answer the questions.

~>Pick five bloggers to answer your questions.

Kim’s questions for me

  1. Do you judge books by their covers? What is your favorite?

I do, highly. I think that nowadays, with all technology disposed for pretty much everybody, a nice looking cover for anything is a basic requirement. Besides, I read too much about psychology to believe that people are not affected by cover contents when picking up a book, sorry lol

I don’t have a favorite cover, but I tend to prefer real people over illustrations on books. Unless we’re talking about sugared historical romances. Then I simply love those painted looking covers, with all that Belle Époque feelings to them ❤

the truth about cassandra
something cheesy like this ❤ Oh, how I love these covers!
  1. What is your spirit animal?

That’s a hard one. I used to think that it was the snake. Then I realized that I may be a bear, as I am chubby, huggable, love to eat (especially salmon) and have a current record of 18 hours of straight sleep. But then I remembered how I can’t hibernate on winters and how I hate summers, so I came to the conclusion that I’m a cat.

wait a minute is that a baloon.gif

  1. Which Hogwarts houses do you belong to?

Slytherin. I chose it when I was only six and watched Harry Potter for the first time. Later on my life, every single quiz that I made confirmed my green and silver spirit. Even Pottermore put me twice on Slytherin – both on the old version and the new version of the website, haha!

  1. What is your worst fear?

To go blind. I’ve worn glasses since I’m three years old (with a five-year pause after I turned 14) and I’m terrified of not being able to read anymore.

  1. What is one thing you used to hate about yourself?

I’m detached. From everything. Sometimes, even from my books. I can’t bring myself to care about any subject for long, not truly. I haven’t changed, but I’ve learned how to cope with it. Maybe this is the way that my brain encountered to deal with the suffering and over excitement that every Leo goes through in life, haha!

i've been in love it's painful pointless and overrated damon salvatore.gif

  1. Black or White?

Black. You can’t go wrong with black ❤

600futybll ian somerhalder.jpg
see?
  1. Your all-time favourite animated movie?

The Swan Princess. But that’s a tough one, haha!

the swan princess.gif

  1. Describe yourself in one word 😉

It can be a curse, trust me.

Liebster Award, The Third

Hello, good Saturday morning to you 😀 Today I bring you guys my third Liebster Award! My deepest thanks to Vinnieh, my lovely friend that nominated me. On his blog, you can find awesome movie and lyrics reviews and some smoking hot bum posts. If you don’t already, go give him a follow, he is brilliant ❤

lba

Vinnieh’s questions

  1. What do you find most beneficial about being a blogger?

I got to meet so many incredible people and awesome books! Now, the sky is my limit, haha! I made friends, got better at English writing and doubled my share of read books on the year. It is very relaxing and rewarding, haha!

  1. What are your views on nudism?

I never though about that, haha! As I live on a big city on a tropical country, I’m used to shirtless people on the streets, crazy people going for a walk naked to protest over some matter or other, etc. I wouldn’t do it, but I think everyone deserves the freedom to dress or to not dress as they see fit 🙂

  1. Have you ever gone to see a movie that you were too young to watch at the time?

If we are talking about theaters, no, I didn’t. I’m 21 today with a 16 face, so I still struggle to see mere action movies, haha! But I watched tons of movies that weren’t for my age at home. My parents always trusted my judgments, for good and bad, haha!

  1. If you could date a Hollywood star, who would it be?

Ian Somerhalder, as he is incredibly sexy, talented, nice, animal lover and singer ❤

menor para desktop

My second option would be Matt Bomer, haha!

iknowyouloveme

  1. If you were the supreme ruler of a country, what would be the first law you would pass?

Thy shall not ruin, damage, bad mouth, steal or wrinkle books. The penalty for each of those infractions shall be… Deadly.

tumblr_niuyi1PMN31u8sinro4_500

  1. What do you consider to be the best thing about your blog?

I think that what’s different on my blog is the way I do my reviews, with all humbleness 🙂

  1. Do you believe in the supernatural or paranormal?

I do, I think there are more between the sky and the ground that our eyes can see. Not all can be explained and I’m fine with that, haha!

  1. Where is your dream destination for a holiday?

I really want to visit Canada, England, France, Germany and the USA 🙂 I never got the chance to travel abroad properly.

  1. What is the first horror movie you recall viewing?

I know it is not really an horror movie, but mine would be The Mummy and all the movies that came after it. I remember watching them as a kid quite by accident with my parents and I lost my sleep for a week, haha! The monsters and insects crawling out of the sand still give me nightmares…

  1. If you had a magic power, what would it be?

I would like to be able to move things around with my mind. That way, I would also me able to fly 😀

  1. And finally, what do you believe the future holds for you?

Hopefully, a paying job, haha! And I know it holds a trip tomorrow to my hometown.

 

As this is my third award and I have seem this award on several blogs, I won’t tag anyone. But if you never received a Liebster Award and would like to, just comment and I’ll edit this post to nominate you and give you your eleven questions 😀

Thank you for reading and don’t worry, the blog shall continue to live even with my trips, haha!

I was so honored to be nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award! How does my sweet friend Kim, from The Spines Breaker, came to find this blog neat, I shall never know, haha! LOL Thanks so much, Kim! ❤

real-neat-blog-award

Those are the rules:

Thank and link the person who nominated you. (thank you!)

Answer the 7 questions your nominator has provided.

Nominate 7 other bloggers and create new questions for them.

Kim’s questions for me:

  1. Favorite Winter reads?

My reading habits were never affected by season or time of the year – I don’t feel the need to read Christmas theme books now in December or beach themed books in summer (that is the currently season on my country, haha!). But I do prefer to read during winter than summer, as I don’t have an AC at my place 😦

  1. Winter hobbies?

Reading, eating pizza (I know, it’s pretty specific, haha!), watch cartoons on TV with a blanket on, drinking tons of hot cocoa… Yummy.

  1. Which country invented the toaster? Joking lol, Coffee or tea?

I highly prefer tea, as my stomach doesn’t agree very well with coffee for some odd reason. (And, if you insist, it was Scotland, haha!)

  1. Read at night or in the morning?

At night, as long as I can! 😀

  1. Your opinion on love at first sight? Or other book tropes (princess running away from arranged marriage, the nerd and the popular, the chosen one….)

I think that every cliché can be awesome in a book if well-worked. It relies on the writer to do the magic 🙂 I believe in love at first sight in books and I have a true fetish with nerd x popular, haha! The chosen one, on the other hand, I usually find a bit boring, but again, it’s up to the writer to do a good job convincing me 😉

  1. Most recent book purchase(s)?

My edition of Fangirl, from Rainbow Rowell, and this Barnes & Noble edition of Peter Pan ❤

IMG_6773
from my Instagram
IMG_6800
Peter Pan and Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries, haha!
  1. Do you have a December tbr yet? If no, what is your current read and how are you progressing?

I do! And, so far, I’m late on it, damn. My currently TBR pile is on this post and I’m afraid that I was too optimistic with it… My currently-read is Cemetery Tours, by Jacqueline E. Smith, and so far, it is awesome! 😀

Nominated ones:

  1. Jess, from Mud and Stars
  2. Audrey, from Forwards and Bookwords
  3. Nicole, from Away in Neverland

That’s it! Thanks for reading and thanks again to Kim for the nomination ❤

Liebster Award: double nomination! =O

Hello, everyone! Some days ago, I was nominated for the Liebster Award twice! I’d like to thank so so sooo much to my lovely friend Ellen, from Eveningreads, and to sweet Shannon, from For The Love of Words, for the nomination! You are amazing!!

lbaAnd here’s the rules for the award:

liebster-award-rules-iThanks again, girls! Let’s go to the answers:

Eveningreads’ questions:

  1. Do you have a favorite Harry Potter book? If yes, which and why?

Yes! I love The Goblet of Fire. All of it. The year, the quests, Voldemort’s trial to kill Harry… Really, this is my favorite book of the series all time, haha!

  1. What is your current read and how is it?

I’m currently reading a book called Shattered Blue, from Laura Bird Horowitz, that I received through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I just start reading chapter 1, I think it’s not fair to say anything good or bad yet, haha!

  1. Your top 5 TBR?
  • Sigmund Shaw: A Steampunk Adventure, by Mark C. King
  • Vexed by a Viscount, by Erin Knightley
  • What Lies Within, by James Morris
  • Secrets and High Spirits, by Lou Harper
  • Cemetery Tours, by Jacqueline E. Smith
  1. Top 5 favorite characters of all time?
  • Damon Salvatore, from The Vampire Diaries
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • Addie Hayes, from Chasing Rainbows
  • Mr. Darcy, from Pride & Prejudice
  • Snape, from Harry Potter
  1. Can you read and listen to music or are you the silent reader?

I really like to read while listening to music, but I read well in silence too – I prefer to have some kind of background noise, especially during afternoons, because I usually get sleepy, no matter what I’m reading, haha!

6.Which standalone/series do you wish had just one more book?

Omg, there’s so many! But I will go with The Tutor, from Bonnie Dee (review here!). It’s a standalone book and I really wished to see how the characters went with their lives after so many things, haha!

  1. What is your go-to book?

Right now, it’s Chasing Rainbows (review here!), by Linda Oaks. It was a life-changing book and I will re-read it many times, I’m sure!

  1. Who is your most owned author?

Just physical copies, I would say Emily Rodda (18 books). However, counting ebooks + paperbacks, I’d say Ava March, with 22 books.

  1. What is your favorite read of 2015 so far?

I CAN’T CHOOSE! This year, I’ve read some exceptional books, like the complete series of Percy Jackson and the Asylum series books, besides Austenland from Shannon Hale (review here!), Viscount’s Wager by Ava March (review here!), The Tutor from Bonnie Dee and Chasing Rainbows by Linda Oaks. I can’t choose one, sorry, haha!

  1. If you could visit one fictional place, where would it be and why?

The Middle Earth, from Lord of The Rings. I spent so many hours of my childhood pretending I was there that it would feel wrong to choose any other amazing place, haha!

  1. What’s the book you had to put down before you could go on with it?

The Host, by Stephanie Meyer. I really hated it, haha!

Now, For the Love of Words’ questions:

  1. Are you a morning person, or a night person?
    I’m definitely a night person, I do everything after dusk, haha!
  2. What’s your favorite color of food?
    Yellow or red/brown, because I love massa and meat, haha!
  3. Most read and reviewed genre?
    Romance, of all kinds: YA, Historical, Contemporary, Supernatural… Romance ❤
  4. Favorite pastime (besides reading)?
    Eating, what is very sad, haha! Third thing on my list is sleeping. I’m basically a cat that learned to read.
  5. What’s your dream city?
    A place in Brazil called Curitiba. I would give anything to live there 🙂
  6. Favorite Olympic sport to watch?
    I like masculine water sports and volley. I love Brazil’s volley team, both masculine and feminine, and love to see all those worked up guys on bath suits, haha! *blushes*
  7. Do you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert?
    I’m very extrovert, I talk to pretty much anyone and everything, like the walls.
  8. What’s your favorite television show?
    Hard one! I watch too many things and never finish one. I would say Vampire Diaries and Suits, as everything seems to be getting cancelled nowadays…
  9. What’s your dream job?
    Being paid to review books, because that’s pretty much what I do best 🙂
  10. Who’s your favorite artist? (can be either musical or fine arts)
    I love miss Britney Spears and a band named Epica. If I had to spend the rest of my days listening to only two musical figures, they would be my choice ❤
  11. How long have you had your blog, and what keeps you writing?
    My blog is a baby! I started it on Blogger in April and moved to WordPress on June, so this blog has only three months! I’m very selfish with my blog: what keeps me writing is my desire to do so. I always read a lot and I love talking about the books I read, but my offline friends couldn’t keep up with my passion, so I unleash it all here and on my bookstagram 🙂
