Burn, Rewrite, Reread Tag | Books at Dawn

Burn,-Rewrite,-Reread

Hey guys!

I was tagged by Rae over at Bookmark Chronicles to do the Burn, Rewrite, Reread Tag. This looked like such a fun tag to do which may put me in some hot waters if a lot of my favorite books show up! So thank you Rae for all this wonderful torture I’m sure I am about to go through!

Rules:
  • Randomly choose 3 books. (Use the ‘random’ option on your Goodreads read shelf. Thanks for that tip, it makes this so much easier)
  • For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread. (A lot like Kiss, Marry, Kill.)
  • Repeat until you completed three rounds (or five) 🙂

Okay, let’s do this!


ROUND 1

BURN: The Iron Trial by Holly Black/Cassandra Clare. I just did not like this book. In my opinion it is a horrible middle grade.

REWRITE: The Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman. Don’t get me wrong, I liked this book a lot. But I think I would rewrite the first quarter of it and lay off the heavy romance nonsense that was there.

REREAD: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. This book was great! Everything I could have wanted in a book with Superheroes and Super Villains.


ROUND 2

BURN: Lying Out Loud by Kody Keplinger. No shock there. This book was boring as hell!

REWRITE: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I would rewrite the last quarter of this book. This three quarters are fantastic! But that last part when they’re in the cave and she is paraded around as a slave just made me so uncomfortable….

REREAD: Soulless by Gail Carriger. This was my first ever steampunk paranormal fantasy I’ve read and I loved it. It is well written and smart, and I loved all the characters too!


ROUND 3

BURN: Wayward Vol. 1 by Jim Zub. Sorry Wayward… I loved your story and your art, but up against these two, you’re going to lose.

REWRITE: Saga Vol. 1 by Brian k. Vaughan. I don’t know what part of this graphic novel I would attempt to rewrite because it was so freaking good, but I’m sure there is something I can add to it!

REREAD: The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson. This novel was brilliant and heart breaking. I would read it a thousand times over!


ROUND 4

I should have stopped at Round 3… this one is going to break my soul!

BURN: Saga Vol. 2 by Brian K. Vaughan. I’m so sorry Saga… you got the shit end of the stick this round! Nothing personal… keep on being your amazing self!

REWRITE: Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes. This is breaking my soul right now. This is one of my favorites from the Falling Kingdoms series and it’s absolute perfection. SO the only thing I will rewrite is the ending where a certain character I loved gets back stabbed… you know who Morgan!

REREAD: Golden Son by Pierce Brown. I literally just finished this book a couple days ago and man I was blown away! That ending needed to be read over and over again. Hot damn!


ROUND 5

BURN: Paper Towns by John Green. I hold no allegiances to Mr. Green, and although this is a good book, I might just have to burn it this round. Oops!

REWRITE: Rat Queens Vol. 2 by Kurtis J. Wiebe. This graphic novel had a lot of chapters on character back story, and I loved it. But I might rewrite and throw some more action sequences into the mix!

REREAD: The Secret Heeder by Fleur Camacho. One of my favorite sequels from an indie author I’ve read so far! I loved the time traveling adventure they went on this time around and would love to read it again sometime!


Man that was a tough tag to do, but oh so much fun! I hope you enjoyed my answers and not get offended by any of them. Let me know if you would have done anything differently, I’d love to know!

Emoji’s Galore #2 | TAG

Emoji-Tag

Hey guys!

I was tagged Aria from Aria Stuck in Wonderland, Enthralling Dimple, and Trisha Ann from The Bookgasm Blog to do this tag, so thank you ladies! Since I already this tag a couple months ago, I decided to do it again with a new set of emoji’s that have made it to the top of my most used list!

So the point of this tag is to choose your 5 most used emoji’s and match them up to a book that evicted that particular emotion. As I am an avid emoji user this should be a interesting and fun tag to do! So let’s get into it!


Emoji Big Grin

BIG GRIN EMOJI

Queen of Shadows

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas put a big grin on my face after reading it! I thought it was the best book in the series so far. It progressed well, had a lot of great moments and important scenes. It was out with the old and in with the new. I love every minute of it!


Emoji Heart

HEART EMOJI

Six of Crows

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo is my new current favorite. You do not understand the love I have for this book. It exceeds it’s predecessor series the Grisha Trilogy by a long shot. It breathes new life into a world we are already familiar with. It explores new lands, new characters and new ideas! My heart grew big for this book!


Emoji Crying

CRYING EMOJI

All the Bright Places

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven was a roller coaster of emotions from beginning to end. And that ending had me in tears. I’m not one to really cry from a book, but this one got to me big time. I can’t say anymore to avoid spoilers… so yeah, I’ll leave it at that. Have a box of tissues ready!


Emoji Cant Look

NOT LOOKING MONKEY EMOJI

Rat Queens Vol.2

Rat Queens Vol. 2 had me covering my eyes as I read it. The amount of nudity and sexual scenes surpassed the first volume by a long shot. Although I am no angel when it comes to those things, I’m still not used to reading them or seeing them in the books I read. I can only imagine what the third volume is going to be like!


Emoji Not Impressed

SIDE EYE EMOJI

The Memory Key

The Memory Key by Liana Liu was horrible! It was quite boring and the characters were vapid. The only highlight was the unique concept. Too bad it wasn’t executed nicely. This book had me seriously side eyeing it on my shelf that I had no choice but to sell it to my local used book store. Hopefully someone else will enjoy it more than I did.


Well there you have it! My five most used emojis and the books that match with that emotion. I hope you enjoyed this tag and let me know down in the comments if you felt the same way as me. If not, tell me why!

Until next time,

I TAG YOU:

No one this time! But if you want to do it, by all means do it. It’s quite fun!

Rat Queens Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N’rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe & Rock Upchurch | REVIEW

Rat Queens Vol.2Rat Queens Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N’rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe & Roc Upchurch
Published by Image Comics on May 6th, 2015
Genres: Graphic Novel, Fantasy, Action & Adventure, Romance
Pages: 128
Format: Paperback

NEW-5-STARS


This booze-soaked second volume of RAT QUEENS reveals a growing menace within the very walls of Palisade. And while Dee may have run from her past, the bloated, blood-feasting sky god N’rygoth never really lets his children stray too far.

Collects RAT QUEENS #6-10


NEW-REVIEWRat Queens Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N’rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe & Rock Upchurch is the second installment of the collected single issues of Rat Queens.

It picks up where the first volume ends and also gives a ton of back stories of all the main girls before they met each other. With heavy essence on Dee this time around we get to really learn more about her and her people.


NEW-LIKES
STRONG FEMALES

We continue to have a strong female cast of badass mercenaries as the story pushes forward. They take no crap from the men, and know how to kick some serious butt. They flaunt their sexuality and don’t conform to the female ideology of how females should act and behave.

I love that they all embody strong feminist personalities and don’t rely on men to come save the day. I feel like as the years go on, people are becoming more and more accepting of this.

STORYLINE / HIGH FANTASY

Kurtis J. Wiebe strikes again with another great storyline. This time around he dives deeper into the pasts of the girls and begins to develop their character all while propelling the story in a fantastic direction. Violet’s story arc of coming into her own and defining for herself what it means to be a dwarf woman is seriously inspiring.As awesome as Violet is, Hannah is clearly the star of the show. The mage has the most dialogue and general page space of all the Rat Queens, so I guess it’s not surprising that she has the most compelling back-story thus far. Her heritage, her magic usage, her emotional baggage…well. In the words of Mean Girls: that’s why her hair’s so big, it’s full of secrets!

Dee, wayward cleric of the god N’rygoth, remains my favorite. What can I say? I love a bookworm who can kick some serious ass. I look forward to a more fleshed-out character arc for Betty, since she’s the least-developed so far. Her drug and candy fueled antics are hilarious, but they don’t really add much to the story.


NEW-DISLIKESNONE

I’m sorry to say that I have no dislikes for this volume. I though everything was well fleshed out and the pacing flowed nicely from beginning to end. I hope to see even better things in the next volume.


NEW-IN-CONCLUSIONRat Queens Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N’rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe & Rock Upchurch is a fantastic graphic novel and awesome sequel in the series. Whether you’re a noobie graphic novel reader or a veteran, there is much to like with this one.

I can’t wait to see what Wiebe has in store for us next. I am thoroughly looking forward to it. If you have read this volume, let me know what you thought of it down below. Do we share any of the same sentiments?

Until next time,

Rat Queens, Volume 1: Sass and Sorcery by Kurtis J. Wiebe & Roc Upchurch | REVIEW

Rat Queens Vol.1Rat Queens, Volume 1: Sass & Sorcery by Kurtis J. Wiebe & Roc Upchurch
Published by Image Comics on April 8th, 2014
Genres: Graphic Novel, Fantasy, Magic, Adult
Pages: 128
Format: Paperback

Rat-Queens-Vol-1-Rating


Who are the Rat Queens?

A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they’re in the business of killing all god’s creatures for profit.

It’s also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack!

Collecting Rat Queens #1-5!


Rat-Queens-Vol-1-ReviewRat Queens, Volume 1: Sass and Sorcery by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Roc Upchurch is a collection of the first six issues of the Rat Queens comic book. It follows Hannah, Violet, Dee and Betty, the Rat Queens on their boozy adventures of love, sex, drugs and killing monsters. A lot can happen in only five issues, so let’s see how theses ladies fared.


Rat-Queens-Vol-1-Plot-+-WritingThe Rat Queens are a mercenary band of kick-ass women who are based in a little medieval-ish town named Palisade. Along with a number of other mercenary bands that they constantly compete with, they’ve been hiring themselves out as monster killers. Unfortunately their wild ways have been getting under the skin of the entire town. So after a bar brawl that causes serious damage, they (and all the other mercenary bands) are tasked with a quest to make up for all their troublemaking.

Kurtis J. Wiebe’s writing was truly witty and fantastic to read as I was literally laughing at all the sarcastic dialogue between the characters, especially between the Rat Queens and it really gave this volume a comical edge to the intense battle sequences. I also loved the fact that Kurtis J. Wiebe made this series reminiscent to the “Dungeons and Dragons” series with the main characters using all kinds of sorcery and sword fighting to defeat their foes in battle, while also combing the sarcastic wit and female empowerment of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” into the story. Roc Upchurch also delivered with some great artwork. A story can only go so far in a graphic novel without fantastic artwork and that is what he provided.


Rat-Queens-Vol-1-CharactersBetty was my favorite, just because she likes to drink as much as I do. She’s a silly little lady who has an eye for detail She’s also incredibly feisty. Her heart is made of pure gold, and she loves to do mushrooms. Also, she’s as good with a bow and arrow as Legolas and Hawkeye put together. She also has the cutest sayings on the face of the planet.

Violet was an awesome redhead with a curvy body and a furious nature. She can also, apparently, grow a beard (which might match her twin brother, who is pretty attractive in pencil, if I do say so myself). She lives for fighting, and just might be the toughest of the Rat Queens in this volume. Plus, she gets in some sexy time with Orc Dave.

Hannah is a crass, bitchy woman who grows on you in about a second and a half. She has sass for days and isn’t afraid to start a conflict in whatever location she’s in. She causes a lot of trouble, but it’s made clear in these pages where her heart truly lies. She’s loyal to her ladies, while also picking the cutest man in town to set her eye on.

Dee is the one that I want more information on, and it seems like that will be available in the next volume. Her past with the squid cult is really interesting, and also her flashback to her parents who are still a part of said cult. She’s an insane introvert and can barely talk to anyone who isn’t involved in the Rat Queen’s quest to kick ass.

Let’s add in Sawyer who is way too attractive for his own good, and only wants the best for Palisade (also to get into Hannah’s pants). He’s a sweetheart and I can definitely see the allure.


Rat-Queens-Vol-1-SettingThe little town of Palisade is in ruins after each and every debacle the Rat Queens get themselves into. It added great atmosphere to the story and only added to the overall effect the plot was trying to give off. The people of the town want them gone, but they have never felt more at home in Palisade.

I can’t wait to see what other disasters they can create for the poor town folk to endure. If I lived there I can tell you one thing. I would embrace them and probably attend every crazy party they throw and squeeze my way into their small circle of friends.


Rat-Queens-Vol-1-In-ConclusionRat Queens, Volume 1: Sass and Sorcery by Kurtis J. Wiebe & Roc Upchruch was an action packed roller coaster with tons of humor, touching moments, alcohol and drugs, and major badassery. I loved all the characters and the story was so fun. Not to mention I loved the artwork as well. I can’t wait for volume 2 of this epic graphic novel!

If you’ve read it, let me know what you thought. Was it as awesome as I think it was?

Until next time,

Sig New

Fictional Cities | Top 5 Wednesday

Top-5-WednesdayHey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.

This week’s topic is Top 5 Fictional Cities.

A good fantasy (sometimes other genres) also comes with a great fictional city! Sometimes it’s a new made up city no one has ever heard before, and other times its a re-imagined already existing city in our world. Nevertheless a ficitional city can make or break a book for me. It all comes down to the mood of the setting that sets the tone for me. So let me show you my 5 favorite fictional cities!


5. Auranos from Falling Kingdoms

City AuranosWho wouldn’t want to live in a Kingdom that is prosperous and where everyone lives a comfortable life? I mean it’s a lot better then the wastelands of Paelsia and the cold arctic climates of Limeros. Am I right?


4. Neverland from Peter Pan and Wendy

City Neverland“Hi Peter Pan, it’s me Jesse. I was just wondering when you were going to come visit me in my window and take me off to Neverland with you. I’m quite frankly tired of being an adult and would love to stop aging.” That’s how I feel right now.


3. Palisade from Rat Queens

City PalisadeQuite frankly Palisade may not be the best place to live. But at least it will be a non stop party every night and day with the Rat Queens living it up there! I secretly want to join them on their escapades!


2. Newcago from Steelheart

City NewcagoYES YES YES. A city run by villain Epics with awesome powers?? I would either want to be said Epic or at least be apart of the Reckoners and hunt them down! Steelheart isn’t that bad of a mayor right?


1. Kingdom of Autumn from Snow Like Ashes

City Kingdom of Autumn“Doo doo doo doo doo” *whistles as I walk* Just casually strolling through my favorite city. I would freaking love to live in perpetual Autumn forever. My favorite season of course. Never too hot, never too cold. And look at all the pretty colors!!


Well there you have it! I hope you enjoyed my Top 5 Wednesday this week. If only I could live in these worlds! So much more exciting then the one I live!

Until next time,

Emoji’s Galore | TAG

Emoji-TagHey guys!

I was tagged by Rae over @ BookmarkChronicles. Thank you so much for tagging me! You guys should check out her blog now, because I said so!

So the point of this tag is to choose your 5 most used emoji’s and match them up to a book that evicted that particular emotion. As I am an avid emoji user this should be a interesting and fun tag to do! So let’s get into it!


Emoji2WINKING FACE EMOJI

Saga Vol. 1The winking face omits the cheeky/flirty side of me, so what better book to choose then Saga, Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and art by Fiona Staples! This graphic novel is so cheeky with all of its sexual content and witty commentary. I see you creepy giant headed, long legged prostitutes from Sextillion. Read the graphic novel if you want to know what I’m talking about there!

Emoji4LAUGHING OUT LOUD EMOJI

Rat Queens Vol.1The laughing out loud emoji omits tears of laughter from me, so what better book to choose then Rat Queens, Volume 1 by Kurtis J. Wiebe and art by Roc Upchurch. There were many points in this graphic novel that had me laughing out loud, and it takes a lot to make me do that! But when you have four crazy, funny, complete opposite female mercenaries you can’t help but LOL while reading! Go pick this up if you want a good laugh!

Emoji5NOT IMPRESSED EMOJI

CinderDon’t hate me guys, but the not impressed emoji omits expressionless, “come on really?”, “you’ve got to be kidding me”, emotions from me and there is no other book I would choose for it then Cinder by Marissa Meyer. If you read my review of the book then you know how unimpressed with it I was. I’ve read numerous reviews and watched a lot of praise videos on BookTube for this book, but it ultimately fell flat for me in many ways. I just didn’t love it like everyone else. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it, just was not impressed by it.

Emoji3HEART EYES EMOJI

Falling KingdomsThe heart eyes emoji omits absolute infatuation and love, so there is no other book that compares to that emotion for me then Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes! If you guys know me by now, then you know that the Falling Kingdoms series is my absolute favorite of all time. If I could marry it I think I would. It’s that serious guys! So go pick yourself up a copy and hardcore fanboy with me. K, thanks bye.

Emoji1STRESSED OUT, GIVE ME A MASSAGE EMOJI

Throne of GlassThe stressed out, give me a massage emoji omits high levels of frustration to the point where I need a head massage like ASAP. And there is no better book then Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I had a love hate relationship with this book. My biggest issue was the main character Celaena. She was beyond frustrating that I needed to massage my head from all the stress she caused. If you’ve read my review, then you know why.


Well there you have it! My five most used emojis and the books that match with that emotion. I hope you enjoyed this tag and let me know down in the comments if you felt the same way as me. If not, tell me why!

Until next time,
