The Sailor Moon Book Tag

When I saw this tag at Rachel’s blog, I filed it away to do when I had more time. Now is the moment.

This tag was created by Cee of The Novel Hermit, Cristina of Girl in the Pages, Kristin of Super Space Chick, Sierra of SDavReads and Alexa from Alexa Loves books (graphic from them too).

Be sure to stop by Rachel’s blog to see her answers.

Moon | A book that makes you hungry

I feel like a monster for picking this book but every time the characters in Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson started talking about rationing food or just not eating, I was so hungry.

Mercury | A book that features science and technology

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGeeWhile it doesn’t have a ton of science, The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee has a ton of technology.

Venus | A book that makes you want to play video games

Heir Apparent by Vivian Vande VeldeEasy. Heir Apparent by Vivian Vande Velde. Just don’t get stuck in the game like Giannine!

Mars | A book inspired by mythology or folklore

The Lost Sun by Tessa GrattonThe Strange Maid by Tessa GrattonSince I just finished this trilogy (review of the last book to come), I have to go with The Lost Sun and The Strange Maid by Tessa Gratton which reinvent by Norse mythology.

Jupiter | A book that gave you strong feelings

The Last Time We Were Us by Leah KonenMost recently I was completely wrecked by all of the emotions I experienced while reading The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen.

Saturn | A post apocalyptic book you love

The Darkest MindsThe Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I feel like it’s not really a book tag if I don’t mention her somewhere!

Pluto | A time travel book

The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi HeiligAnother obvious choice because I love it so: The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

Uranus | A book featuring elemental magic

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare BlakeI read a lot of fantasy so there were a few options here. I decided to go with one of my most recent reads: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake which features several types of magic including elemental magic.

Neptune | A book featuring music

Shuffle, Repeat by Jen KleinThe Game of Love and Death by Martha BrockenbroughFor a non-musically-inclined person, I read a lot of books with musical characters. Again going with a recent read: Shuffle, Repeat by Jen Klein. (Honorable mention: The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough.)

Tuxedo Mask | A book with masquerades or hidden identities

Tell Me Three Things by Julie BuxbaumBreaker by Kat EllisThis answer took me in two directions: 1. sweet romance for which I’d say Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum and 2. scary mystery for which I’d say Breaker by Kat Ellis.

Rini/Chibi Moon | A favorite middle grade book

The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan StroudBoth a favorite to read and to recommend: The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud.

Luna, Artemis & Diana | A book for animal lovers

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan MatsonLet’s go with the book with a ton of dogs on the cover: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson.

 

 

 

For this post I’m tagging:

Olympic Book Tag

I love the idea of book tags but often put off doing them because they’re kind of tedious to format. BUT then I saw Shannon had made a delightful Olympic-themed book tag and I decided to go ahead and dive in. You can check out Shannon’s answers on her post! (Graphics from Shannon too.)

Here’s the tag! (Click on the book covers to see my reviews.)

Girl Against the Universe by Paula StokesI read this one so recently I have even reviewed it yet. But the moment I picked it up, I know I would love this book. (Spoiler: I was totally right!)

The Darkest MindsThis series has a lot going on but all of it happens on a road trip as Ruby and the Black Betty gang making their way across the country.

Unspoken coverThis book was the first one that came to mind when I saw this heading and I stand by my initial choice. Truthfully almost any SRB book will have a good love triangle though!

The Last Place on Earth by Carol SnowI’ve been reading a lot of good books but then I remembered this one. Still. So. Many. Questions.

The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter HapgoodGoing for the obvious choice here with a book that has “summer” in the title.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare BlakeAnother recent read (watch for this one in September). This book was so intense with fighting and plotting and some bloodshed that I kept needing breaks while I was reading. I’d read a chapter and then need to just sit quietly for a minute to recover!

Six of Crows by Leigh BardugoThis book has so many plot twist that the sequel even had a decoy title for a while. *mic drop*

The Last Time We Were Us by Leah KonenThis book made me shed all the tears. Honorable mention for This Raging Light by Estelle Laure which made me shed all the other tears.

And I Darken by Kiersten WhiteSince this book spans the protagonist’s entire life, it starts a bit slow but moves along to great effect.

The View from Saturday coverI love this book so much. Even now it’s still a favorite I recommend to kids at the library all the time.

The Scorpion Rules by Erin BowGoats count as animals, right?!

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly BlackI had a really hard time getting through this book for reasons that are still not entirely clear. And yet I wound up loving it. Go figure!

Tumbling by Caela CarterI’ll be reviewing this soon but OMG I was blown away by how this book. I loved how the girls really built each other up and supported each other despite the strong competition.
