Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Can’t Believe I’ve Never Read

Good night and welcome to a once more late Top 10 Tuesday! I think I’ll stop pointing out that I’m late because it’s becoming a bad habit. Maybe if I don’t point that I’m late, I can get myself back on time…? Anyway, this meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and my chosen theme for the day is 10 Books I Can’t Believe I’ve Never Read 🙂

In no particular order, let’s go!

  1. By Arrangement, by Madeline Hunter

from my Instagram 🙂

As punishment for a romantic indiscretion, Lady Christiana is forced to marry a common merchant. But when she meets David de Abyndon, she finds he is no ordinary merchant but a man of extraordinary poise and virility. She senses the most uncompromising of passions behind his cool blue eyes.

This one has been sitting on my shelves for like three years or more now and I never seem to find the time to read it, ugh!

  1. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, by Jenny Han

to all the boys i've loved before.jpg

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

I’ve been meaning to read this one for a while, but never got to it. After reading Jess’ review for it, I’m more excited ❤ [Jess is from the Mud and Stars]

  1. The School for Good and Evil series, by Soman Chainani

the school for good and evil.jpg

The first kidnappings happened two hundred years before. Some years it was two boys taken, some years two girls, sometimes one of each. But if at first the choices seemed random, soon the pattern became clear. One was always beautiful and good, the child every parent wanted as their own. The other was homely and odd, an outcast from birth. An opposing pair, plucked from youth and spirited away.

This year, best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where all the lost children go: the fabled School for Good & Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. As the most beautiful girl in Gavaldon, Sophie has dreamed of being kidnapped into an enchanted world her whole life. With her pink dresses, glass slippers, and devotion to good deeds, she knows she’ll earn top marks at the School for Good and graduate a storybook princess. Meanwhile Agatha, with her shapeless black frocks, wicked pet cat, and dislike of nearly everyone, seems a natural fit for the School for Evil.

But when the two girls are swept into the Endless Woods, they find their fortunes reversed—Sophie’s dumped in the School for Evil to take Uglification, Death Curses, and Henchmen Training, while Agatha finds herself in the School For Good, thrust amongst handsome princes and fair maidens for classes in Princess Etiquette and Animal Communication.. But what if the mistake is actually the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are…?

I’ve been meaning to read this book since it freaking came out in Brazilian Portuguese [aka right after the original release]. But I only saw it twice on bookstores: the first time it was when we met and I was penniless (I’m a sadistic for going to bookstores without any kind of money, I know); and the second time I had to leave it on the shelf, along with To Kill A Mockingbird and Falling Kingdoms because I had also found the illustrated Harry Potter… Well, they always say that the third time is the one that counts, right? 😀

  1. When Lightning Strikes (1-800-Where-R-You #1), by Meg Cabot

When Lightning Strikes.jpg

Jess Mastriani has never been what you’d call a typical Midwestern teenager—her extracurricular activities, instead of cheerleading or 4-H, include fist-fights with the football team and month-long stints in detention. A part of Jess would like to be the prom queen her mother has always envisioned her being, but another part is secretly counting the days until she’s saved up enough money to buy her own Harley.

Then something happens that guarantees Jess will be one of the in-crowd…at least until her newfound talent ends up getting her dead.

I’ve met this series two summers ago, by chance at a bookstore, and by looking at the last volume’s cover. To this day, I have never seen the first book anywhere (I admit that I didn’t do that much digging…), so it’s not exactly my fault that I don’t have it, right…? Lol Wrong.

  1. The Infernal Devices + The Mortal Instruments + The Dark Artifices

And any other book in the Shadowhunters world, by Cassandra Clare

I promise I already bought the ebook for Clockwork Angel. Soon, guys.

  1. Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1), by Marissa Meyer

cinder.jpg

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

This book simply doesn’t sounds as my kind, but I was convinced by an army of lovely bookstagrammers and book bloggers that I should give it a try. And I can’t believe I’m still standing there not reading it, haha!

  1. Angels & Demons (Robert Langdon #1), by Dan Brown

angels & demons.jpg

When world-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a mysterious symbol—seared into the chest of a murdered physicist—he discovers evidence of the unimaginable: the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati … the most powerful underground organization ever to walk the earth. The Illuminati has now surfaced to carry out the final phase of its legendary vendetta against its most hated enemy—the Catholic Church.

Langdon’s worst fears are confirmed on the eve of the holy conclave, when a messenger of the Illuminati announces they have hidden an unstoppable time bomb at the very heart of Vatican City. With the countdown under way, Langdon jets to Rome to join forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and mysterious Italian scientist, to assist the Vatican in a desperate bid for survival.

Embarking on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that snakes across Rome toward the long-forgotten Illuminati lair … a clandestine location that contains the only hope for Vatican salvation.

I’ve read Inferno some years ago and I can’t believe I still haven’t read the other books in this series lol I’m hopeless.

  1. Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë

jane eyre.jpg

avril sighs in exasperation

YES,  I KNOW, I DESERVE THE EYE-ROLLINGS!

  1. Throne of Glass series, by Sarah J. Maas

throne of glass.jpg

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her… but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead… quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

The reason why I’m not reading this series yet is because I want this edition, with the woman on the cover. I don’t care much for books with illustrations on the cover overall and I don’t like this series illustration covers at all, sorry 😦

  1. Game of Thrones

a game of thrones.jpg

Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.

As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must … and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.

The old gods have no power in the south, Stark’s family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.

I already bought all the ebooks, made a bet with a friend (hi, Jen!) and still haven’t started those. Maybe on June. June sounds like a good month in my calendar. ~who knows~

That’s it, thank you so much for reading and I hope your eyes aren’t too sore from all the rolling I must have won during it, haha!

#DustOffYourBookShelves: The Scarlets, from Madeleine Roux

Hi, there (again!) I bet you thought that I had forgotten that Thursday means #DustOffYourBookshelf day over here!

No, I did not, haha! I was just really lazy busy yesterday to leave all posts scheduled, oops!

Anyway, this is a meme hosted by my dear friend Mandy, from The Reading Diaries. Make sure to check her blog if you haven’t ❤

Da Rulez:

Dust off your Bookshelf was originally created to share books that have been on my “to read pile” for a long time. Some so long I’ve forgotten that they are there, and have purchased duplicate copies. Each week I will share on my blog as well as Instagram a new title. Some may be newer and some so old I have forgotten they are there. I do have issues with buying books and never reading them. I’m hoping that by share them I will be motivated to read them. Plus it’s always fun to find new books hiding within the bookshelves. Feel free to join in and share on Instagram or your blog. Just let me know so I can check out your choice this week too. Just use #DustOffYourBookshelf

My chosen book

This week, I’ve chosen a book that’s been sitting on my shelf since last June: The Scarlets, from Madeleine Roux.

the scarlets.JPG

Goodreads’ blurb:

When Dan and his friends meet Cal in Sanctum their impression of the privileged New Hampshire College student is less than stellar. But Cal wasn’t always the cold, sarcastic guy he is now. In this digital original story preceding the events of Sanctum, we meet Cal when he is experiencing college like any other kid with a group of close friends and a dad who piles on the pressure. Only, when the pressure starts getting to him and Cal accepts an invitation to meet a selective group of students and alumni known only as the Scarlets, the course of Cal’s life changes forever. And the price of joining the Scarlets might be higher than he can pay.

With plenty of twists, turns, and thrills, The Scarlets is an exhilarating installment in the Asylum series that can stand on its own for new readers or provide a missing piece of the puzzle for series fans.

I haven’t read this one yet because around June I started to use my book jar box to decide my free-willed next reads (as you may already know, I review books for authors, tours and publishers now, haha!). The box-jar hasn’t spit out The Scarlets yet and I keep waiting…

That’s it, haha! I’ll keep waiting for my chance at reading The Scarlets 🙂 Thank you for reading!

#DustOffYourBookshelf: The Passage, by Justin Cronin

Hi, there! Nice Thursday for you 😀 If you’re around for a while, you’ll know that our Thursdays don’t start without the #DustOffYourBookshelf meme! It was created and is hosted by my lovely friend Mandy, from The Reading Diaries

20151119_131743

Da Rulez:

Dust off your Bookshelf was originally created to share books that have been on my “to read pile” for a long time. Some so long I’ve forgotten that they are there, and have purchased duplicate copies. Each week I will share on my blog as well as Instagram a new title.

My chosen book

This week, I’ll talk about a book that I won as a present in 2011 and still haven’t had the nerve to read: The Passage, from Justin Cronin.

IMG_8460

Goodreads’ blurb:

An epic and gripping tale of catastrophe and survival, The Passage is the story of Amy—abandoned by her mother at the age of six, pursued and then imprisoned by the shadowy figures behind a government experiment of apocalyptic proportions. But Special Agent Brad Wolgast, the lawman sent to track her down, is disarmed by the curiously quiet girl and risks everything to save her. As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escape—but he can’t stop society’s collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.

As much as I think this can be interesting, there are some reasons why I still haven’t picked it up yet: a) THIS IS SO HUGE! b) It’s out of my comfort zone; c)AND HUGE; d) and I’m still not 100% convinced to read it and neither to give it away. I’m the worst.

That’s it, thank you for reading 😀 Have you read The Passage? Should I??

The Alphabet Book Tag!

Good morning! I’d like to start this post by saying that my friend Kim, from The Spines Breaker, has an amazing blog and writes awesome posts. And that’s why I’m doing today’s meme: because I have seen it on her blog, haha!

Welcome to The Alphabet Book Tag!

alphabet

The Rules

Pick a book that is on your shelf or one that you have read in the past and fill out each letter of the Alphabet. The idea is to use books that you have either read or that are on your TBR list.

Let’s do this, haha! To make things more interesting, I organized my “read” shelf on Goodreads by alphabetical order and will use the first titles for each letter ❤

  1. A) Abandon, from Meg Cabot (Abandon #1)
  2. B) Back Alley Marine, from Brian West [don’t ask, please lol]
  3. C) The Calhoun Women: Catherine & Amanda, from Nora Roberts (Calhoun #1 & #2)
  4. D) Dangerous Spirits, from Jordan L. Hawk (Spirits #2) [REVIEWED!]
  5. E) Eclipse, from Stephenie Meyer (Twilight #3)
  6. F) Fame and Obscurity, from Gay Talese
  7. G) The Gentleman and the Lamplighter, from Summer Devon
  8. H) Happy Valentine’s Day, Sir, from J. L. Langley (Sci-Regency, #2.1)
  9. I) The Iliad, from Homer
  10. J) Jane Bites Back, from Michael Thomas Ford (Jane Fairfax, #1)
  11. K) Keeping Secrets, from Beth Beechwood (Hannah Montana, #1) [I love novelizations from TV Shows, judge me, haha!]
  12. L) Lady Lyte’s Little Secret, from Deborah Hale
  13. M) Madeline Hatter’s Story, from Shannon Hale (Ever After High, #0.4)
  14. N) The Naked Baron, from Sally MacKenzie (Naked Nobility, #2) [I feel the need to clarify that this is an historical sugared romance and not an excuse for porn, haha!]
  15. O) Object of His Desire, from Ava March (Somerville Park, #1) [and you thought that you were free from Ava March on this tag?! Hahaha!]
  16. P) The Passion According to G.H., from Clarice Lispector [this is a huge Brazilian classic, everyone should read Clarice ❤ ]
  17. Q) Quidditch Through the Ages, from J. K. Rowling
  18. R) Rafferty’s Bride, from Mary Burton
  19. S) Sanctum (Asylum, #2), from Madeleine Roux
  20. T) Taken by the Vikings, from Isabel Dare (Viking Sex Slave #1) [this is exactly what it looks like, unfortunately lol]
  21. U) Underworld, from Meg Cabot (Abandon #2) [WHAT. WERE. THE. ODDS?!]
  22. V) The Valley of the Lost, from Emily Rodda (Deltora Quest, #7)
  23. W) The Wager, from Sally Cheney
  24. X) X 1999, from CLAMP [I wanted to use only books, but it wasn’t possible lol]
  25. Y) You Loved Me At My Darkest, from Evie Harper (You Loved Me, #1) [the only one that is on my TBR pile, ugh. I didn’t know that I had never read a book starting with Y!]
  26. Z) Zone-00, from Kiyo Qjo [another manga, unfortunately]

 

I’m highly bothered by these last three letters! I’ll need to search books with X and Z and add them to my never-ending TBR. Hunf.

i'm done

That’s it, thanks for reading! Don’t forget to check Kim’s blog, The Spines Breaker 😀

This time, I brought you guys the only book that I haven’t read on the A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Beatrice Letters.

Goodreads’ blurb:

Top secret—only for readers deeply interested in the Baudelaire case. How I pity these readers.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

I never found this book on any local bookstore and after a quick online search, I can say that this book is not available on any Brazilian retailers, so it is catching pounds of dust on my Goodreads shelf 😦

That’s it, thanks for reading! I hope I can buy this book someday. It’s the only one missing, after all!

The Book Courtship Tag

Hi, there! It’s Saturday and I couldn’t be happier! Besides eating my uncle’s famous barbecue today, this means that I’m going home tomorrow! Yay ❤

Today’s tag I saw at my friend Kim’s blog, The Spines Breaker. She didn’t tag me, but I liked this tag a lot and decided to do anyway 😀

Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover?

5391115

The Awakening (Darkest Powers #2), by Kelley Armstrong. The hardcover volume was 7 dollars when I found it and I couldn’t resist, haha! Only later at home, I saw it was the second volume of the series and had to buy the ebook for the first one, haha!

Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary?

6282915

Angel Time (The Songs of the Seraphim #1), by Anne Rice. I found it highly interesting 😀 Let’s see if it will meet my expectations, as my last book from Anne Rice was a huge fiasco.

Phase 3 – Sweet Talk: A book with great writing?

IMG_7132

The Night World series, from L. J. Smith. Seriously, I love this woman’s writing style! You can check my reviews for books one, two and three 😀

Phase 4 – First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?

IMG_6897

Cemetery Tours, from Jacqueline E. Smith! It was so good and the end had such a cliffhanger that I almost cried in relief because I already had all three published books with me, haha!

Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night?

IMG_7693

My last one was Shearwater, from dear Derek Murphy ❤ Such a wonderful book!

Phase 6 – Always on my mind: A book you could not stop thinking about?

IMG_6773

Fangirl, from Rainbow Rowell. Even now, it still fills my head, as I’m dying to read Carry On!

Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book which you love the way it feels?

IMG_7613

Widdershins, from Jordan L. Hawk. All the feels, all over the place, haha!

Phase 8 – Meeting the parents: A book which you would recommend to your family and friends?

Imagem2

Pride and Prejudice, from marvelous Jane Austen. So far, I convinced 4 people including my mom to read it, haha!

Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series you know you will re read many times in the future?

ec83452d22b2321e10c19eff22ccc1ea

All In With The Duke, from my loved Ava March. I can’t breath without this book in my life, seriously.

 

That’s it! Thanks for reading 😀 If you find this tag as fun as I did, don’t hesitate on doing it! You can say that I tagged you 😉

Match Made in Mondays: a poorly executed premise!

Hi, there! Good Monday to you 🙂 First thing in my blog week is to participate in my sweet friend Audrey’s weekly meme, Match Made in Mondays! To see what we have been about for a while now, head to Forwards and Bookwords, her awesome blog 😀

match-mondays

Today’s theme is:

THIS BOOK’S PREMISE + a do over (What book had a fantastic premise that wasn’t executed well?)

Another rare case where I am not going to start my response with “I don’t know”! 😀

I think that my last plot disappointment was with Secrets and High Spirits, from Lou Harper.

ETXS7977
from my Instagram 🙂

It had every element in the right place for it to work, but I felt it was so rushed D: The couple was great, the sidekicks were great, the mystery and everything… Oh, dear. It pains my heart to complain like this 😦

And, to be clear, I liked it and gave it 3 stars, but it is a shame to see its wasted potential, haha! I was devastated when I reached the end of my arc copy and saw that Teag and Bruce were done and that the next book would already feature another couple…

tumblr_m55a1dn6O91r05j4oo1_500

Oh, the pains of a book lover.

Anyway, still a good read. For more details, please read my full review here 😀

That’s it! Thanks for reading and I hope everyone’s starting this week well!
