It's Magic Time! Harry Potter Book Tag

So, I finally found the perfect Harry Potter Book Tag to celebrate joining this year's NEWTs (I'm joining in an unofficial way since I didn't create a TBR pile neither it seems am I adding the books I'm read so some kind of sheet?). This tag was created by Book Roast, our NEWTs host, and it is perfect for this time of the year - witches and wizards studying for their NEWTs and packing their bags to return to Hogwarts on the first of September.

The Cutest Book Tag Ever! "What Cats Do" Book Tag

Cats and books. Books and cats. There's something better than such a match? 😸 I saw this fluffy tag at Inge @OfWonderland, two weeks ago, and I immediately added it to my tags-I-must-join list. Yes, I have list for everything. I wanted to share my answers last Saturday, not only because it's Caturday day, but also my not-so-little Iago turned three. Shall we look at some cat and book fluffiness?

Disclaim: This book tag may leave you squealing and gushing about adorable kittens and cats.

Book Tag. Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag

How did time fly by so fast? 😱 I'm sure that just a few weeks ago, I was planning my bookish resolutions for 2019 and, now, here I'm looking back at the last six months to share with you some of my favourite (and not so favourite) readings. Welcome to the Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag! I hope you're ready for lots of gushing, incoherent sentences and maybe some gifs. I don't know who created this tag (if you do know, please, share with me so that I give her/him credit), but I first saw it first on The Literary Phoenix. I immediately knew I had to join this tag. How could I ever pass up the chance of rambling about books?

The Most Delicious Book Tag. The Pancake Book Tag

I've a confession to make: I never ate pancakes. I tried to bake them many times, but there's always something wrong with the batter or then it gets stuck on the skillet. However, I could not pass up the opportunity to take part in this delicious book tag created by Becky @  Blogs of a Bookaholic. I mean, how could I ignore an opportunity to drool at yummy pancakes and ramble about books? 🥞

Book Tag. Spyro aka The Purple Dragon is Back!

This tag was created by me. All images belongs to Insomniac Games and Toys For Bob.
Happy release to Spyro Reignited Trilogy! I missed this Dragon purple so much. The worlds from these games are magical -the settings, the colours, the plot, the missions/puzzles, the gems, the characters and Sparx. Everything is PERFECTION! I received my copy yesterday (along with the cutest Funko) and so far I've loved everything about it. Well, Spyro felt really heavy on the flight level and the animatics from the soldiers in Peace Keepers are missing something. But I don't care. To celebrate the release, I created a Spyro Book Tag. Even if you never played the game, you can join because it's all about books.

Blogoween. Halloween Creatures Tag 2.0

This is Halloween! This is Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Hallow-een! I love the creepy atmosphere, so I couldn't resist joining the Halloween Creatures Tag 2.0 hosted by Anthony @ Keep Reading Forward. I haven't officially joined Blogoween (sadly, I'll never be able to post thirteen times in a month), but I'll try to be part of some of the challenges because Halloween and talking about books is a match made in heaven.

Cake Flavoured Books Tag. Who Loves Cake?

Welcome to Cake Week! This week is all about cake, cupcakes and muffins, slices of pie and everything sweet. I saw this tag a few months ago on Annemieke @ADancewithDragons (it was created by Cat @PaperFury). I wanted to join it, but I wanted to find the perfect moment. Since I'm sharing my review of Deadly Sweet by Lola Dodge this week, why not create Cake Week?

Halloween Book Bingo. Pokémon Halloween Book Tag

Have you already joined Halloween Book Bingo? If you have not joined it yet, you can still do it. Just create a sign up post and share it here. You've until next Saturday to do sign up and be eligible for the giveaway

As I wrote in the bingo announcement, every Sunday I'd be sharing some fun Halloween inspired posts. For today, I created a fun book tag: Pokémon Halloween Book Tag with dark and ghost type Pokémon. Everyone is welcome to join this book tag - don't forget to tag your friends. You can share your answers on the comments section.
Disclaimer: Pokémon belongs to Nintendo, please don't sue me. This tag was inspired by Pokémon Go Book Tag created by @ReadatMidnight. Aentee gave me her authorization to create this tag.

A urban myth that always sparked my interest is the one of Bloody Mary. I've tried to say her name three times in front of a mirror, but at the third time I always give up. Better safe than sorry, right? So, of course I'm choosing Say Her Name by James Dawson. While I was reading it last year, I found myself thinking I was hearing the drip-drop coming from my own bathroom. Of course, then I realized that I was really hearing it because I forgot to turn off the water after my cats drank from the sink.

Have you seen the cover of Asleep by Krystal Wade? The cover is so creepy and yet eerie. For me, the cover is simply gorgeous. Maybe I'll finally read this dark retelling this Halloween.

I'm going to say this book is a hidden gem because no one seems to be talking about the release of the third book -and it comes out next Tuesday! Probably it's because the covers are constantly changing... The Diviners by Libba Bray is a hidden gem. It has an amazing set of diverse characters (although, I did find myself rolling my eyes at Evie many times), vicious ghosts, a museum full of creepy objects and spooking settings.  

Is there any character more devious than Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo? Kaz is the perfect anti-hero. His cunning mind never stops plotting and he's always a step ahead everyone else. Although, he always comes across heartless, when you discover how he became the Dirtyhands, you can't stop yourself from loving him. No matter how devious and vicious Kaz is, I'll love him.

I know, this urban fantasy series is not very Halloween-ish -but it does have werewolves, vampires, ghosts, shape-shifters and faeries. Can you guess which one it is? Yes, Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs. I've no problems if this series never comes to an end because this world brought back my love for reading. Please Briggs, give me as many book as you can.

DO NOT FORGET TO SHARE YOUR ANSWERS WITH ME! Leave the link on the comments section. Thank you.

Book Tag. Pokemon Go 

This tag was created by @ReadatMidnight. All images belong to her. Also, Pokemon Go belongs to Niantic and Nintendo.
When I was little, my mother would read to me every night. It was always a different story, from fables to fairytales. It was back then when I fell in love with reading. However, the book that made me the bookworm I'm today was Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The first four books of this series were the first no-pictures book I ever read.
I'll always love Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. This is my favourite classic. I don't know if I ever shared it, but I collect different editions of Pride and Prejudice. I only have four different editions yet, but the number will slowly grow. 
This usually happens to me: I lose interest in a book when it's everywhere! I find it on Goodreads, on blogs, on instagram... And then it's so overhyped that if I decided to read it, I'll probably end up being disappointed (I'm looking at you Truthwitch). At the moment, because of all the buzz surrounding it, I've no interest in reading The Raven Boys. I'm not saying I'll never do it (I loved The Scorpio Races), but thanks to the release of The Raven King, I couldn't go anywhere without being slapped in the face with this series. 
The Girl at Midnight did reminded me of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I didn't mind it. I was able to enjoy the story, no matter how similar they seemed to me. It even reminded me that I still have to finish the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. 

I like big books and I cannot lie. But they can be scary. The reason I haven't started reading Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes is because there already are so many books in the series. When I look at the first book and think about making it my next reading, I remember I've to read three more books to catch up with the series and it's demotivating. 
To All the Boys I've Loved Before kept me up at night. I couldn't put the book down because it was freaking adorable. There really was no suspense or surprising twists, but Lara Jean caught my attention and I just couldn't wait to see her story unfold.    
Pokemon-Tag07-NidokingQueen Is it bad that I've a difficult time deciding my bookish OTP? I do have a few (and I when I say a few, I certainly mean a longer list than the one I actually have in mind), but how can I only choose one?! This is too difficult... Okay, I think I'm gonna go with Kaz and Inej from Six of Crows. They are perfect for each other. Their soul is broken, but together they can pick up the pieces and become complete again. I can't wait for Crooked Kingdom to be released and see what is in store for these two.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. There wasn't a dull moment in this amazing novel. It's fast-paced and action-packed and the plot easily grabs the attention. 
Pokemon-Tag09-Eevee This is a really difficult choice for me. I suppose it should be easy because when a world is dear to your heart, you never want to let it go. But sometimes I feel that the world shouldn't be mess with because it may be ruined. Does it make any sense? But if I really have to choose, I´d probably love a spin-off of Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier. I loved this world and one book wasn't enough.
Pokemon-Tag14-MagikarpI'm going with the Starbound Trilogy by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I don't read much sci-fi and I was pleasantly surprised with how awesome this series is. My favourite book from the series was without a doubt This Shattered World. I loved Jubilee and Flynn, two star-crossed lovers who would never imagine that their soulmate was on the other side of swamp (now that I think, I could have chosen them for my bookish OTP).

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. As I already wrote a thousand times, I've only read Cinder, but I plan on reading Scarlet very soon - probably when I've the money to buy physical editions of the series. Gosh, I really wish that imaginary loaded gift card was real...  
Pokemon-Tag15Mew-MewTwo Aren't collector's editions the prettiest? *.* I wish I owned the Deluxe Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. It's so freaking beautiful! I'm also in love the Leather-Cloth editions of A Song of Ice and Fire. I don't think it is collector's edition, but it's a box set so special that it should be.    
Pokemon-Tag10-Egg A debut novel? But there are so many that I'm excited for! I guess I'm going to choose Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh, which will be release on October of this year. Pokemon-Tag11-Lure-ModuleMy auto-buy author is Juliet Marillier. Whatever this woman writes, I'll buy because I know she will never let me down. Her is writing is simply beautifully-flawless. *all hail the queen*  

I feel I've been waiting on forever for A Torch Against the Night to be released (the waiting is almost over). And Crooked Kingdom. And Den of Wolves. A long list of books makes me feel like I've been waiting on forever...
