Top Ten Tuesday: Amazing book covers

I don’t know if this has been a past TTT topic, but it seems like a really fun one to do. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, and how it works is each week there is a topic and you make a list of your top 5, 10 or whatever number of books that fit that topic. This week’s topic is a book cover freebie, so I’m doing amazing book covers!

1 Wolf Hollow, by Lauren Wolk

2 The War I Finally Won, by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley.

3 The Gilded Wolves, by Roshani Chokshi

The cover of The War I Finally Won really represents what the book is about, and even though I haven’t read The Gilded Wolves yet, the cover is so beautiful! And with Wolf Hollow, I love how the writing is built into the design of the cover and is part of the tree.

4The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill

5The Sun is Also a Star, by Nicola Yoon

6Everything, Everything, by Nicola Yoon

7Five Feet Apart, by Rachael Lippincott

Both of Nicola Yoon’s books have such amazing covers that are just really pretty, and the same is with Five Feet Apart. I love on the cover of The Girl Who Drank the Moon how the title is on the moon. It is so pretty!

8 The Wolf Wilder, by Katherine Rundell

9 The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, by Jeanne Birdsall

x Becoming Naomi León, by Pam Muñoz Ryan

The Wolf Wilders is incredible; how the title is built into the trees, and how the light is streaming out of the windows of the cabin. Becoming Naomi León is really interesting as well; how her hair is moving with the wind, the lion next to her with its mouth open. I guess I just love all of the Penderwicks covers; it so simple, yet represents and shows so much of the book!

Top Ten Tuesday: Recent additions to my bookshelf

Hello and happy Tuesday! Right now where I live it is extremely rainy, which is great because I like the rain! Anyways, my first OBOB battle (Oregon battle of the books, a competition where teams battle to answer questions about 16 chosen books) is tomorrow, so I’ve been squeezing in as much reading as I can. Anyways, right now it’s time for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s topic is the 10 most recent additions to my bookshelf.

This is kind of hard because I have gotten a lot of books in the last few months and I don’t actually remember the order, but I’ll try, so without further ado, my most recent-ish additions to my bookshelf.

1 It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel, by Firoozeh Dumas

2 The Teacher’s Funeral, by Richard Peck

3 Ordinary Girls, by Blair Thornbush

Ok. So I got all three of those over winter break. I’m sure of that.

But before that was my birthday and my bat mitzvah, and because every one I know knows I love to read, I got a lot of books. Which is definitely not a bad thing. It is definitely a very very good thing. However, I don’t know the order in which I received the books, so I’m just going to list some more books that have recently-ish made their way onto my bookshelf.

4 The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho

5 The Wolf Wilder, by Katherine Rundell

6 Before We Were Free, by Julia Alvarez

7 Giant Pumpkin Suite, by Melanie Heusier Hill

8 The Sun is Also a Star, by Nicola Yoon

9 Everything, Everything, by Nicola Yoon

X The Book Thief, by Marcus Zusak

Ahhhh… formatting in WordPress is hard sometimes.

Happy Reading!

The Netflix Book Tag

Hi, and thanks to Rukky@Eternity Books for suggesting this book tag to me. I’ve never really done any posts other than book reviews, and I started blogging a month ago, so, I’ll see how this goes!

#1 Recently Watched – The Last Book You Finished

I am Princess X. I finished it a couple days ago and haven’t been able to decide what to read next. I did finish the audiobook the 39 Clues book 7 the Viper’s Nest last night, so I guess both

#2 Top Picks – A Book That Has Been Recommended to You Based on What You Previously Have Read

The book The Sun is also a Star was recommended to me because I read Everything Everything, by Nicola Yoon.

#3 Recently Added – The Last Book You Purchased

I don’t usually buy books, but I finally used the gift certificate that I got for my birthday, 11 months ago, and I got the books Hattie Big Sky and its sequel Hattie Ever After, which are two of my favorite books, and Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon, which was so good, and I definitely recommend it.

#4 Popular on Netflix – Books That Everyone Knows (Two You’ve Read & Two You Have No Interest In)

I have no interest in reading the Harry Potter books; I read the first one and I did not like. I think that they’re okay books, but that they’re really overrated.

I have read the The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, and it was really powerful; there’s a reason everybody knows it!

#5 Comedies – A Funny Book

The Wednesday Wars, by Gary D. Schmidt, is a very funny book, and I’ve read it a lot of times. It has lots of hilarious parts, but also coveres a lot of more serious topics at the same time.

#6 Dramas – A Character Who Is a Drama King/Queen

I think that Jane from The Penderwicks is definitely a drama queen, the opposite of her sister Rosalind, who’s always portrayed as the ‘sensible’ sister.

#7 Animated – A Book With Cartoons on the Cover

I can’t really think of a book with cartoons on the cover, because I don’t really read graphic novels that much.

#8 Watch it Again – A Book or Series You Want to Reread

I want to reread the book Absolutely Truly, by Heather Vogel Frederick, and its sequel, Yours Truly.

#9 Documentaries – A Nonfiction Book You’d Recommend to Everyone

I don’t read a huge amount of nonfiction, but Notorious RBG; the life and times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a really good biography, and about an amazing person!

#10 Action Adventure – An Action-Packed Book or Series

I don’t read a lot of action-packed books or series, but the 39 clues series, although I think it was aimed at slightly younger kids, is filled with action.

#11 New Releases – A Book That Just Came Out or Will Be Coming Out Soon That You Can’t Wait to Read

The Trials of Apollo book 4, The Tyrant’s Tomb, is coming out on September 24, and I’m really excited because I’m a huge fan of all of Rick Riordan’s books. (now that I think of it, all of his books are filled with action, so I should have probably put it up there)

Well, there it is. I think I’m supposed to tag other bloggers, but I don’t really know any other blogs than the ones that have already done it, so that’s all for today!
