🎮 The Nintendo Book Tag 🎮

This tag was created by Sam from the YouTube channel Sam’s Nonsense and involves answering nine Nintendo themed questions. Let’s get started!

1. NES (NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM): A CLASSIC YOU WANT TO READ

huck-finn-book-bushwick-400x575

I would like to read the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, i have heard about it before but never read it.

2. SNES (SUPER NINTENDO): A SEQUEL YOU LIKED MORE THAN THE FIRST (CAN BE A SECOND BOOK IN A SERIES)

 

12603407

The first book was good but The Captive Part II/ The Power  caught me wanting to read more then the other one.

 

806336

When i first started The Four Agreements i wasn’t excepting to get much out of it, But the more i read the more i started seeing things that was going on in my life that i never would have thought to change. Like seeing how people speak to others and how some words you use can be black magic. Now i must say i don’t believe in magic *sometimes* but i do believe if you start saying rude things to others you are indeed using something dark inside you.

4. GAMECUBE: A POPULAR BOOK THAT DID NOT GO OVER SO WELL WITH YOU

 

6573775

So i have just begun reading more books, which means i have not read a lot of popular books. Only one i thought of was The Vampire Diaries The Awakening, I will say i love the t.v. show but i think because i watched the show before reading the book i could not grasp Elena having blonde hair when in the show she has brown. So because of that i could not get into the book.

5. WII: A NEW FAVOURITE BOOK

 

18798983

So this lovely book is the winner for new favorite book minding i have not read it yet 😣 but i am very very excited to start it soon.

6. NINTENDO POWER: FAVOURITE GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES OR A SERIES YOU WANT TO START

 

I could not have been able to pick just one! Just saying i really need these books in my life soon though very soon.

7. SUPER MARIO: A CHARACTER THAT YOU’D LOVE TO SQUISH LIKE A GOOMBA

 

Faye_Books

Id have to say Faye from The Secret Circle.

8. ZELDA: A NEWER FANTASY THAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE A MODERN CLASSIC

 

21414439

Hoping to read this one soon as it came in my bookoutlet box this month.

9. SAMUS-ARAN: FAVOURITE SCI-FI NOVEL OR ONE YOU WANT TO READ

 

41AIr2SSdBL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_

Had to pick Spectre, no if’s and’s and but’s about it.

10. POKEMON: BOOK EDITIONS THAT YOU WANT TO COLLECT

 

9787db0d1cb446860b8c48758c3a2a38

I love how these children classics look plus i always love to re read some of these specially to my children.

11. DONKEY KONG: A BOOK WITH ORIGINAL CHARACTERS

Sadly i can not answer this one right now but once i read more books i can come back and add to it.

 

12. NINTENDO FANDOM: FAVOURITE NINTENDO GAME(S) OR GAME YOU REALLY WANT

Ugh i can not pick one or two, i gotta say i use to love Mario, Legend of Zelda and Pokemon. ( still do specially when your husband is a gamer ) Right now for a game i really want is nothing but i am stuck on playing the Sims 4 at the moment.

 

I TAG…

I am just starting out so sadly can not tag anyone at least that has not done it yet.

 

Here is The Nintendo Book Tag hope you enjoyed my answers. Hope who ever does it as well will have as much fun as i did.

Posted in Wrap ups & TBR's

📚Wrap up|March 2017📚

Welcome to my very first Wrap up, March has been super awesome for me! Other then the fact i recently realized i have forgotten a bit of things like my cat’s pill 🙀, my oldest son left his project at home 😖, and i forgot to get the meat out for dinner 🤦‍♂️. But my reading has been on point which is very rare for me with a big family  👨‍👦‍👦  👩‍👧‍👦 .

Now lets begin, these are my thoughts about the books i have read this month!

The Four Agreements

IMG_1079

First book read is The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. This is a Toltec wisdom book that explains about the four agreements, Be impeccable with your words, Don’t take anything personally, Don’t make assumptions and Always do you best.

I first laid eyes on this book through Megan Leigh’s YouTube channel and also have another book i found on her video as well. I bought the book to see if it would help me with my on going anxiety, which i noticed it helped me open my mind and opened my eyes enough to noticed a lot of things i needed to change in my life.

Don Miguel Ruiz has indeed showed many ways we are being robbed of joy and how we most of the time or sometimes create needless suffering.

The Captive Part II / The Power

IMG_1082

Next book was The Captive Part II/ The Power by L.J. Smith. I will admit the first book took me about a year to read ( not joking ) but i also had other life issues to deal with as well, this book how ever only took me about a month to read.

One of my favorite things about these books is the magic, it took me while to get into the first book i was kinda bored of the beginning but once the middle/ end of it happened i just had to start this book.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

IMG_1083

Book #Three The sisterhood of the traveling pants by Ann Brashares. So i have owned this book and the second book for while now and only have watched the movies to it, finding out there is actually four books to this series 😲.

I had a hard time reading this book trying to stay on track for what was going on with the girls lives, but i also think it was because i watched the movie and i could picture all that happening and when some didn’t happen i’m like WHAT!!! But i finished it which was a great surprised and am excited to start the next book soon ( should of started after it but wanted something different ).

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

IMG_1086

Last book of March Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowlings. I was very excited to read this book as truthfully i never got to read it as a child, but when i heard my oldest was reading it at school i had to join him.

Very happy to read this one as i got to find my house that all the book clubs i am joined in are talking about GO HUFFLEPUFF GO!. This book and like all books with magic in it makes my day every time i read it, i feel when i read this book though my childish heart comes out and i get all giddy!

 

Well there yeah go, every book i read in March, i am very proud of myself usually i only get through one book or none to actually get through four that is amazing and i owe all the thanks to booktube and book clubs!!!!!

Expect a To Be Read blog April 1st as i have so many i want to read but might just pick four books again. P.s I know it looks like i am smelling the books but i am not ( maybe ha! )


Tell me what your books were that you read this month?

First Lines Friday: May 26th

Found a post i want to do! First Lines Fridays which is featured on Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?  If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Let’s begin:

Image result for quotation mark png Eliza Mirk is the kind of name you give to the creepy girl who clings to her ex-boyfriend for weeks after he’s dumped her because she refuses to accept that he hates her guts. Eliza Mirk is  a low- level villain with a secret hideout in the sewers. Eliza Mirk belongs in a comic book.

Read on to find out which book this extract is from…

Eliza And Her Monsters – Francesca Zappia

Goodreads

Summary:

Eighteen-year-old Eliza Mirk is the anonymous creator of Monstrous Sea, a wildly popular webcomic, but when a new boy at school tempts her to live a life offline, everything she’s worked for begins to crumble.

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, smart, and friendless. Online, Eliza is LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of a popular webcomic called Monstrous Sea. With millions of followers and fans throughout the world, Eliza’s persona is popular. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves her digital community. Then Wallace Warland transfers to her school, and Eliza begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile. But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart. With pages from Eliza’s webcomic, as well as screenshots from Eliza’s online forums, this uniquely formatted book will appeal to fans of Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona and Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl.
