Tag Sunday – The Nintendo Book Tag

Screen Shot 2017-04-09 at 10.22.00 pm

So I’m back for another tag! I didn’t do my Discussion post on friday as I worked, had a nap and then went to the pub and didn’t get home till 3 the next morning. I might try and do it sometime this week if I’m bored, but if not I will be back on Friday for this weeks Discussion Friday! I also haven’t been doing Goodreads Monday that much as it’s just getting a bit boring!

Now onto the questions!


1. NES (NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM): A CLASSIC YOU WANT TO READ

Well for this I’m choosing more of an author and that is Agatha Christie! I want to read as many as I can of her works! I will only show a couple I want to read!

2. SNES (SUPER NINTENDO): A SEQUEL YOU LIKED MORE THAN THE FIRST (CAN BE A SECOND BOOK IN A SERIES)

I don’t really know if I have an answer for this question as nothing comes to mind when read this..

4. GAMECUBE: A POPULAR BOOK THAT DID NOT GO OVER SO WELL WITH YOU

5. WII: A NEW FAVORITE BOOK

6. NINTENDO POWER: FAVORITE GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES OR A SERIES YOU WANT TO START

I don’t read graphic novels, so I don’t have an answer for this!

7. SUPER MARIO: A CHARACTER THAT YOU’D LOVE TO SQUISH LIKE A GOOMBA

Kadir, he is just a dick.

Traitor_to_the_Throne-667x1024

8. ZELDA: A NEWER FANTASY THAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE A MODERN CLASSIC

I don’t really understand this question completely. I’m assuming it means a fantasy that you think could be a classic one day?? As Modern and classic are basically opposites and I’ve never understood that..

Even though it’s a screenplay I think this could be a classic purely because it’s link to Harry Potter!

9. SAMUS-ARAN: FAVORITE SCI-FI NOVEL OR ONE YOU WANT TO READ

10. POKEMON: BOOK EDITIONS THAT YOU WANT TO COLLECT

11. DONKEY KONG: A BOOK WITH ORIGINAL CHARACTERS

12. NINTENDO FANDOM: FAVORITE NINTENDO GAME(S) OR GAME

Well I only own a Wii and I used to have a DS and I loved Mario & Mario Kart the most!

Orange is the New Black on Netflix

I started rewatching this on Netflix as I was bored and couldn’t decide what to start watching.

Currently Reading

Well I actually finished reading Traitor To The Throne by Alwyn Hamilton this morning, so I’m not currently reading anything until I start another book tonight. I’m considering starting Tomorrow When The War Began by John Marsden though. I read it when i was in Year 9 or 10 in High School, but I don’t remember if I read the entire thing, but I know I really liked it and I want to read the whole series! It’s a pretty short book, so this should only take me a couple days.

Currently Listening

Gena Showalter

Goodreads Synopsis:

My Firstlife is over, but my Everlife is only now beginning.

With her last living breath, Tenley “Ten” Lockwood made her choice and picked her realm in the Everlife. Now, as the war between Troika and Myriad rages, she must face the consequences.

Because Ten possesses a rare supernatural ability to absorb and share light, the Powers That Be have the highest expectations for her future—and the enemy wants her neutralized. Fighting to save her Secondlife, she must learn about her realm from the ground up while launching her first mission: convincing a select group of humans to join her side before they die. No pressure, right?

But Ten’s competition is Killian, the boy she can’t forget—the one who gave up everything for her happiness. He has only one shot at redemption: beating Ten at a game she’s never even played. As their throw-downs heat up, so do their undeniable feelings, and soon, Ten will have to make another choice. Love…or victory.

Cover Art:

I love that this cover matches the first book so well! They are both gorgeous! I love the hourglass with Troika in the bottom of the glass with I’m assuming the Lifeblood spilling from it! It’s beautiful and fits the books so well.

Writing:

I had a few issues with the writing in this first book that were better in this book! I really enjoyed the writing in this one! I still love the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. I didn’t mention this in my review of firstlife, but I love that they add in messages that were sent between characters, set out like IMs! I love the additions of things like this in books, it just adds that bit extra to the story, rather than just reading about the messages in a paragraph like most books do.

I love that the descriptions of each of the places in Troika had enough info to set a basic idea what the places looked like but also allowed for the reader’s imagination to do the rest. I really enjoy that in books!

Plot:

I love the plot of this one, maybe even a little bit more than the first book! I liked that we got to explore more of Troika in this book! A lot was going on in this book! It was action packed and barely ever slow! Basically the entire book you are confused as to who is actually trustworthy as Ten’s trying to figure it out herself and it definitely keeps you on the edge!

Characters:

The first 3/4 of the book I was still on the fence about what side Killian was on! It was driving me wild, but in the end, it’s actually clear, I hope! I still really like Ten, I liked seeing her develop as a person in this book! I liked that we got to see Sloan again and that there was a change in her! We met some awesome new characters that I really enjoyed getting to know like Meredith and Levi. There was of course characters that I enjoyed but I didn’t like as people in the story, I won’t say who as I don’t want to slip in any spoilers!

Overall:

So I gave this book 1/2 more star than Firstlife and that’s because the few little issues I had with the first book were better in this book! I loved the plot and the characters in this book! The cover is gorgeous and the writing was really good! I really have nothing to fault with this book and I hate that I will have to wait around a year for the next book!
