Book Traveling Thursdays #49 – Music is Everywhere!

Today is thursday which means that is Book Traveling Thursdays, a weekly meme created by me and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. This weekly meme consists in picking a book related to the weekly theme that is announced in the group Goodreads page (if you want to join click here) at the beginning of each month. After that you can write a blog post where you explain why you choose that book and choose different covers from different countries. To make it a little bit easy you are going to choose different editions of the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover.

Songs that Remind me of Books

Songs that Remind me of Books

Hi guys! Today I decided to do something that I’ve want to do for a few weeks but hadn’t got around too before. Basically today I’m going to talk about some Songs that Remind me of Books. I know that almost everyone has at least one song that is somehow connected to a book and because of that I decided to write this post. Let’s see some songs that make me think of books every time that I listen to them. Continue reading

My Life in Books! Book Tag

my life in books

Hi guys! Today I wasn’t going to do a tag because my last was a tag but once again I had no time to write a post so to have a post up I decided to do another tag (I promise you that I will not post a tag for the next week 😛 ). Today I’m going to answer to the My Life in Books! book tag. I wasn’t tagged by anyone but I saw it over a Cristina’s blog My Tiny Obsessions and it looked so funny that I had to do it. After that I found out that I’d been tagged by the amazing Analle @ Book Snacks so thanks you Analle for tagging me 🙂 .

1. Find a Book for Each of your Initials.

cipj

C – City of Heavenly Fire

I – Ignite Me

P – The Perks of Being a Wallflower

J – Just One Day

2. Count your Age Along Your Bookshelf – Which Book Is It?

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)

I have two bookshelves in different houses but I have to use the bookshelf next to me right now that is basically my TBR and books that I still have to take home. In this bookshelf the book number 25 (my age) is If I Stay by Gayle Forman.

3. Pick a Book Set in your City/State/Country.

Os Maias

I’m stealing the answer that Cristina used and choose Os Maias by Eça Queirós. It’s an amazing book set in Portugal. Also, I live close to Sintra and part of the book is in Sintra (which by the way it’s a beautiful village). And have I told you that this book is the reason why I started reading?

4. Pick a Book that Represents a Destination you Would Love to Travel to.

Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3)

I was going to say Anna and the French Kiss but then I remembered that I also want to travel to New York so I will pick Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins.

5. Pick a Book that’s your Favorite Color.

Fangirl

Once again I’m stealing Cristina’s answer. I just love the colors (especially the mint green) used on Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

6. Which Book do you Have the Fondest Memories of?

Meet Me Under the Ombu Tree

I think I’ve already talked about this book but it’s Meet Me Under the Ombu Tree by Santa Montefiore. I absolutely love that book and is just an amazing read.

7. Which Book did you Have the Most Difficulty Reading?

Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander, #2)

Probably Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve been trying to finish it since May but I still have 275 pages to go.

8. Which Book in Your TBR Pile will Give you the Biggest Sense of Accomplishment When you Finish it?

Sem Título

Once again, Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon or The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. I will be extremely happy when I finish one of these books.

So this is it. I’m not tagging anyone in particular but if you want to do this tag just tell me and you’re tagged 🙂 .

Completed Series

Hi,

A few months ago I watched Katytastic’s video about her completed series. I decided that I wanted to know how many series I had completed. Something that you should know is that sometimes  I am terrible in completing series because I just decide to wait months/years to read the last book and then I just don´t want to read it anymore. So, let’s se how many series I have completed. If you want to know more about the books I talk here click in the image, it will take you to the Goodreads page (even if you clearly know about most of the books that I’m going to talk about =) ).

P.S.: I am not including short stories

The Mortal Instruments

    

    

The Infernal Devices

    

Divergent Series

    

Shatter Me Trilogy

    

The Hunger Games

    

Mara Dyer Trilogy

    

The Luxe Series

      

Hush, Hush Saga

      

The Syrena Legacy

    

The Twilight Saga

      

Eagle and Jaguar

    

I’m sorry that the Eagle and Jaguar covers are in portuguese. These are the editions I have and I like this covers more than the originals.

I also completed some contemporary books that I don´t know if I can call them series. They are more like companion books but I´m going to include them anyway.

Anna and the French Kiss

    

If I Stay 

  

Just One Day

  

Hopeless

  

In total I have completed 15 series which I think it’s not a bad number. I thought that I had completed less series. I will try to make a post about all the series that I have yet to finish this week.

How many series have you completed?
