BOOK

Book Travelling Thursdays are a weekly meme hosted by Catia and Danielle. Check out the Goodreads group over here.

 

 

This week I have to choose a book which has my favourite conclusion.

Now, I feel these topics aren’t really fair, I could choose Harry Potter for every single one!

Anyway, I have choosen my next favourite ending- Percy Jackson! The Last Olympian is one of the best series conclusions I’ve read so far.

The Original Cover

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

Cover From My Country( India)

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

I don’t think this is specifically published in India, but this is the version I’ve seen around the most.

My Favourite Cover

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

I really like the original cover but I love this version the best!

My Least Favourite Cover

De laatste Olympiër (Percy Jackson en de Olympiers, #5)

I hate the Dutch cover. I feel it is the silliest one.

Some Other Covers

Die letzte Göttin (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

German Cover

Lo scontro finale (Percy Jackson e gli Dei dell'Olimpo, #5)

Italian Cover

Dewi Olympia Terakhir (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

Slumps Are For Chumps #2

Cat at The Book Finch is hosting an amazing month long meme called Slumps Are For Chumps.

SLUMPSheader

Today’s Prompt : I am going to a deserted island for 6 months with NO TECHNOLOGY or MAIL and I can only take 5 books with me. This prompt is in honour of National Bookmobile Day.

Who thinks this is really unfair? This girl! Honestly I am just glad I am going away only for 6 months, not for the rest of my life!

After careful scientific analysis and consideration(not really, I don’t like science), I have chosen these 5 amazing books!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7) The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5) Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)                                                   Cracked (Soul Eaters, #1) Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss, #2)

1) Any of the Harry Potter books: Harry Potter is my all time favourite series. Harry Potter was the first fantasy novel I read,it got me hooked to the fantasy  genre. It also bought a lot of magic into my life. When you are going to a deserted island, what you need most is magic.

I am not particular which one I will take. Probably Order of The Phoenix or The Deathly Hallows.

2) The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan: This is the last book in the Percy Jackson series and it is so epic! I feel this is the best book in the entire series. It has so much action and so many emotions. It also doesn’t hurt that this is one of my favourites. I am choosing this book because I will NEED Percy’s sass and camp-half blood to get through 6 months on a deserted island.

3) Winter by Marissa Meyer: If you have been following my posts, you should know by now how much I love The Lunar Chronicles. I am taking Winter with me because it is the longest( 829 pages!).

4) Any of the books in The Soul Eater series by Eliza Crewe: Seriously guys, this series is so amazing! There are soul eaters, demons and crusaders! What more do you need on a deserted island?

5) Lola And The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: I read this one last week and it is officially my favourite contemporary romance read. Ah!  Cricket Bell *sighs*.

I would need atleast one contemporary read because otherwise I am going to forget how the real world works after 6 months on a deserted island!

So those were the 5 books I would take with me. Which ones will you take? or if you are participating in this meme, leave the link to your post in the comments!

Lizzie’s Questions

1)Have you ever done anything embarrassing while you’ve been fangirling?

Um.. I don’t know if this counts but I was reading The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks, maybe 2 years back. It was such an emotional book( like most Nicholas Sparks books).

My cousin and her family had come over and I was reading on my Aunt’s tab. My dad was taking a video of everyone and it was when I was swooning over the main love interest. Yep, he got that on video. So embarrassing! You can actually see me swoon!

2) Biggest book hangover?

Ha! Easy! Harry Potter!

I first read the books when I was 13 or so. I read all 7 in one go and it was amazing!

I remember imagining myself as part of the trio and dreaming of my Hogwarts letter. I was in dreamland for such a long time!

3) When was the last time you fangirled and why?

The last time I fangirled was when I read The Lunar Chronicles. it was because…. you have to read the series to understand!

ps. If you read Cinder and didn’t like it much, continue with the series! It gets more amazing with each book!

4) Do you read or write fanfiction?

No…

5) Who are you fangirling most over at the moment?

This guy!

Let me tell you something- I am in love with Captain Carswell Thorne ( The Lunar Chronicles). Like if he was real, I would marry him!

The above picture is perfect but in my head he is more like this-

He is so much like Eugene!

My Questions

1) A book you have read years before but you still fangirl aboout.

2) Is there any character or book everyone loves over but you?

3) Do you read or write fanfiction? ( Lizzie’s question)

4) A book you loved but feel it should be more popular.

5) A character you wish you could marry.
