I was tagged by Deanna over at A Novel Glimpse, thanks for the tag! It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these and I admit to having never seen an episode of Sailor Moon (sorry guys!)
MOON: A BOOK THAT MAKES YOU HUNGRY
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman – Just everything the Hempstock’s make… Please get in my mouth.
MERCURY: A BOOK THAT FEATURES SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray – I could have also put the first book for this one, but I feel like the second one was a tad more science-y.
VENUS: A BOOK THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO PLAY VIDEO GAMES
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – This book makes me want to play ALL THE GAMES mentioned in the book. I especially like the idea of the movie line one…that one would be way fun.
MARS: A BOOK INSPIRED BY MYTHOLOGY OR FOLKLORE
Impossible by Nancy Werlin – This book is a really interesting take on the Scarborough Fair song. I read it way back when I was in junior high or high school and then again more recently–it’s not necessarily what you’d expect, but I liked it.
JUPITER: A BOOK THAT GAVE YOU STRONG FEELINGS
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson – Seriously…very strong feelings.
SATURN: A POST APOCALYPTIC BOOK YOU LOVE
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever LOVED a Post-Apocalyptic book. But let me just get something off my chest. Post-Apocalyptic books and Dystopian books are NOT the same thing. There are times when a dystopian society has emerged after an apocalyptic event, but I would generally classify those as Dystopian books. Post-Apocalyptic to me will usually start in a pretty normal world, we’ll see the apocalyptic event, and then we’ll follow our main character through the aftermath. OR the book starts immediately after the apocalyptic event has occurred. Examples: Gone by Michael Grant or The Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole. Not Examples: The Hunger Games, Divergent, or The Maze Runner. Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox now.
PLUTO: A TIME TRAVEL BOOK
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken – Overall, I thought this book was pretty good and it’s one of the few time travel books that I’ve read. I’m excited to see where the next book takes us.
URANUS: A BOOK FEATURING ELEMENTAL MAGIC
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson – If this isn’t elemental magic, then I don’t know what is.
NEPTUNE: A BOOK FEATURING MUSIC
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen – Can I even get through any kind of list without mentioning my queen?
Honorable Mention: Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson – I can’t remember if music is ever explicitly mentioned in the book, but it does feature Roger’s awesome playlists.
TUXEDO MASK: A BOOK WITH MASQUERADES OR HIDDEN IDENTITIES
Tangled Webs by Lee Bross – I’ll be honest, I don’t remember too much about this book, but I know there are masquerade balls and I think I liked it a fair amount.
RINI/CHIBI MOON: A FAVORITE MIDDLE GRADE BOOK
Wonder by R.J. Palacio – This book was definitely impactful for me–I feel like every kid should read it sometime in elementary school.
LUNA, ARTEMIS & DIANA: A BOOK FOR ANIMAL LOVERS
Whippoorwill by Joseph Monninger – If you love dogs then Hi, this book is for you. There are some parts that are harder to read RE: The dog, but the ending has all the doggy feels.
I tag anyone else who wants to do it! (Because #lazy).
