I am starting a new feature on this blog! I am going to do a fun, bookish post every Friday. I am going to kick it off with Alexa Love Books' Sailor Moon Book Tag.
Sailor Moon: A Book That Makes You Hungry
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
There is no denying it. The descriptions of the food Scarlet's farm produces are amazing. After reading about all that produce, you cannot help but start rummaging through your refrigerator.
Sailor Mercury: A Book That Features Science and Technology
The Circle by Dave Eggers
Okay, if you want to be scared to use Facebook or Google, this is the book for you. Eggers' book paints a dark picture of technology. Very dark.
Sailor Venus: A Book That Makes You Want to Play a Video Game
Code Name: Sailor V by Naoko Takeuchi (the art in this post was drawn by her)
Okay, this feels like a cheating a bit, but it makes me want to play a video game! Not only does Sailor V have great powers that would make an incredible video game, but she plays them all the time.
Sailor Mars: A Book Inspired by Mythology or Folklore
Inside the Walls of Troy by Clemence McClaren
I don't know why this book isn't more well-know, because it is all sorts of fabulous. The book tells the story of the Trojan war from both Helen's and Cassandra's perspectives. It is not a happy read, but it is kind of genius.
Sailor Jupiter: A Book That Gave You Strong Feelings
Another Day by David Levithan
I loved this book. I really did. Until the end. Then I threw the book across the room. David Levithan undermined the beautiful poignancy of his series with the ending of this book. Unless he writes another book. Then it might be okay.
Sailor Saturn: A Post-Apocalyptic Book That You Love
Dust by Hugh Howey
I cannot talk too much about this book without spoiling it, but I will tell you that you won't be able to put it down once you pick it up. You will read it in one sitting. Trust me.
Pluto: A Time Travel Book That You Love
Time Traveler's Quartet by Caroline B. Cooney
This book was my teenage dream. It has everything that I loved as a high-schooler. Annie Lockwood is sent back in time to the late 19th century (my favorite), and she finds a steamy romance there. I only regret that I only own the third book of this quartet. The rest were checked out of the library. I know what I am asking for for Christmas...
Uranus: A Book Featuring Elemental Magic
Gates of Sleep by Mercedes Lackey
This book is amazing for so many reasons. There is water magic and Pre-Raphaelite art. Really, do I need to say more?
Neptune: A Book Featuring Music
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
When Lola and Max meet, he sings the Kinks' "Lola" to her. He is also a member of a band. I really like his character, even though I think I am not supposed to appreciate him. Oh well. Everyone loves a bad boy.
Tuxedo Mask: A Book with Hidden Identities
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
I think it is a bit gimmicky, but I the most interesting part of the book is the mystery of who is the assassin and who is prince. It was really obvious to me, but you might not guess it.
Rini/Chibi Moon: A Favorite Middle Grade Book
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle
I remember reading this book in elementary school, and I thought it was the trippiest thing ever. For years, I thought I didn't understand it because I was young. So I read it as an adult. It is still the trippiest thing ever, but I sort of love it.
Luna, Artemis, and Diana: A Book For Animal Lovers
Winnie-The-Pooh by A.A. Milne
Okay, this is an animal lover's paradise. All the animals are anthropomorphic and totally awesome. Even Rabbit! I would still like to have seen more females in the book though.
