Top Ten Tuesday #63

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish which features a variety of bookish top ten lists!

Top Ten Comics/Manga on my TBR shelf



  

Avatar the Last Airbender - I've read two of the AtLA manga trilogies but I want to read them ALL!  These are so faithful to the animated series, both in tone and in artwork, they are NOT to be missed!

Sailor Moon - I adored the animated series growing up but I really want to read the source material and learn more about my favorite Sailor Scouts and their quest to save the universe!

Batman: The Killing Joke - Batman is my favorite comic book hero but I'm woefully ignorant when it comes to his most classic stories and I will fix that soon.  I'm familiar with The Killing Joke but I still need to actually read it.

Fullmetal Alchemist - A classic manga series that has received lots and lots of praise from my blogger friends and the world at large. I've just got to discover what the fuss is all about!

Sarah's Scribbles - I adore Sarah's Scribbles so naturally, the full length story all about my favorite little introvert is a must-have for this girl :)




Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Yet another classic Batman story that is a must-read.  I've heard lots of praise for this one and I can never get enough of the Dark Knight.

Nimona - This story has been universally loved by anyone who has read it so clearly I'm missing out and I can't stand it! I need Nimona in my life.

Wires and Nerve - After the end of The Lunar Chronicles we all were a bit lost I think. Enter a series of graphic novels featuring everyone's favorite android Iko! YES.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl - Here's another story that seems to have been loved by everyone who read it.  Clearly I need to jump on the bandwagon a.s.a.p.

Batman Year One - Yes: more Batman!  These aren't the only classic Batman stories on my tbr shelf but they're the top three I need to get to...before I read ALL the Batman stories :D

Have you read any of these? Share your thoughts below!
I'd love to get more comic/manga recs too if you've got them :)

Fandom Mashups
Fandom Mashups is an original feature here at Lunar Rainbows Reviews.  Every week, I propose a unique fictional scenario and then we build our own personal dream team of five fictional characters from five different fandoms to complete the task!  Anyone is welcome to join up - all I ask is that you link back to me somewhere in your post :)

Hi everyone and happy Sunday!  I'm happy to announce that my long-lasting reading slump seems to be officially over! I've finished a book and an halfway into another! Le gasp!  I'm behind on my blog-hopping though so please bear with me while I attempt to catch up in the coming days.  Before that though, a tragedy has occurred and it needs to be addressed :

Honor! You've been dishonored by your peers and you must regain your honor at all costs!  Which honorable characters are you going to call up to help?

 Prince Zuko (Avatar)

Clearly I had one character in mind when I thought up this topic, and that character was Prince Zuko. Zuko's unending quest for honor starts out in all the wrong places but he gets there in the end...even if he does take the long way around LOL!


Harry Potter

I think Harry is one of the most honorable characters in life. He always does the right thing without ever second guessing himself. He will always fight for others and defend the ones who can't defend themselves ♥


SamWise Gamgee

We all know SamWise is the best friend ever but he's also very honorable.  He's willing to fight for what's right at all costs - even when it isn't his mission to fight for.

Sabriel

One of the things that made me fall in love with Sabriel was how honor-bound she is. She does what needs to be done, putting her own needs and desires aside in the process. To hell with her own safety, she follows her quest because it's the right thing to do.


Ronan Lynch


At first glance this might seem wrong but Ronan was sorted into Gryffindor by Maggie Stiefvater herself. I mean, he's defended Adam's honor time and time again *sigh* And he did the right thing when it came to Cabeswater and the quest for Glendower!

Who are some of the most honorable characters you can think of?

Review: Life, the Universe and Everything

Published August 13th 1982 by Pan

The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky above their heads–so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals stand between the killer robots of Krikkit and their goal of total annihilation.

They are Arthur Dent, a mild-mannered space and time traveler who tries to learn how to fly by throwing himself at the ground and missing; Ford Prefect, his best friend, who decides to go insane to see if he likes it; Slartibartfast, the indomitable vice president of the Campaign for Real Time, who travels in a ship powered by irrational behavior; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-president of the galazy; and Trillian, the sexy space cadet who is torn between a persistent Thunder God and a very depressed Beeblebrox.

How will it all end? Will it end? Only this stalwart crew knows as they try to avert “universal” Armageddon and save life as we know it–and don’t know it!
After a prolonged reading slump, I finally got back into the groove with the next instalment in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Series - Life, the Universe and Everything - which is a bit surprising since I'd found the second book lackluster compared to the first one which was so.much.fun.  I don't know, I think this was exactly the type of book I needed to get over my slump. They're all quick reads, or listens since I'm doing these on audio, and the general silly tone of them all makes it easy to fall back into. You don't need a ton of concentration either because they're really all just good fun and with my beloved Martin Freeman narrating once again (especially after the finale of Sherlock) it felt like coming home again...if home happens to be anywhere in time and space.

The way the previous story (book #2) had sort of resolved itself hadn't been altogether satisfying to me, so I was glad to see that the plot shifted as soon as Life, the Universe and Everything started. This story also focused more on Arthur Dent which to me is the main character of these stories, so I was happy to have him front and center again.  In a story that revolves around aliens and space travel, the only human seems to be the natural focal point because as a reader, you sort of look to him for some sort of reference point through all these crazy adventures. Now don't get me wrong, I like the alien characters of Ford especially, and Zaphod but they don't seem as naturally compelling to me as Arthur. I'm not going to lie though: knowing that Arthur was played by Martin Freeman in the film and having Martin Freeman narrating makes it even better. I love that man in every single role he takes on ♥

Anyway, as I was saying the plot shifted straight away in Life, the Universe and Everything and saw our heroes set off on a whole new adventure. Yes it was random, silly and less plot-focussed than I think most of us are used to but it was still good fun. There was a bit of a mystery this time around too and a concrete quest but being an avid quest-reading, I just gobbled this instalment up even more! All of the stories in this series have made me laugh out loud multiple times throughout which makes it easier to forgive convenient plot-devices and nonsensical aspects. These books are clearly meant to be fun and imaginative, a feat which they accomplish time and time again - and this instalment is no exception.

Fans of space adventures, humor and people like me, bent on brushing up on their classic sci-fi really should check out The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! They're quick reads that are sure to make an impression.  I definitely recommend the audiobook version too: Martin Freeman is brilliant!

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars

Harry Potter Moment #177

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 
Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory  from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Hi friends! Happy Thursday!  I hope you've been having a lovely week so far :)  Our topic today is all about the films - namely - casting preferences:

Which character do you think should have been played by a different actor?



Well, sorry for being obvious but I'm going to have to go with Albus Dumbledore. I adored Richard Harris, even though he was a bit older than Dumbledore would have been in the books. He had the perfect calm power that radiated through him to go along with that elusive twinkle in his eyes when he was feeling mischievous.  I wish he could have lived through the entire Potter-franchise but that's a selfish wish and I know it.  The worst bit of all of this to me, is the fact that the producers recasted Dumbledore with Michael Gambon. I've made no secret that I do NOT enjoy his portrayal of Dumbledore. Not one bit.  Beyond Gambon himself admitting to never having read the Harry Potter books *cringe* he clearly had no true grasp of the essence of the character himself - something I think the producers, directors, casting agents, ANYONE, should have filled him in on. Dumbledore does not yell. He doesn't spit. He doesn't run around like a crazy person shoving people. Sigh.


I wish that Dumbledore could have been taken up by Peter O'Toole, who was a close personal friend of Harris and whom Harris' family suggested as a replacement for Harris.  Peter O'Toole not only resembles Richard Harris, but he has the gravitas to pull off a character as complex as Albus Dumbledore - beyond the fact that both Harris and O'Toole have that silly sense of humor that is so perfectly Dumbledore-ish :) See these two silly goofballs in action for yourselves:

O'Toole (left) and Harris (right)

Which character do you wish had been played by another actor?

Hello friends! You may have noticed the distinct lack of reviews here lately...that is because I was in a major reading slump since November '16 that I have only started to fully shake off. Rest assured that I have a review coming up next week at the usual time slot LOL!  In the meantime, we've got up to space traveling:

In your intergalactic travels, you and your team have found yourself stranded on a (seemingly) deserted planet and you need some serious survival skills to make yourself at home. Who else is stranded with you?

The Doctor

Space-travel + alien planets = The Doctor, that's just the way it goes. If I'm going to be stranded ANYWHERE, I'd want to do so with The Doctor. This^^ Doctor specifically (and NOBODY make him regenerate!)

Spock

Spock and The Doctor would be fascinating as a team wouldn't they? Beyond my nerdy little heart, Spock is brilliant, resourceful and experienced in interplanetary travels so he's in!

Obi Wan Kenobi

And rounding out my sci-fi nerd-gasm^^ my favorite Jedi.  Obi Wan is so cool!  He's also a skilled warrior, a wise presence and a sassy one. His sass with Spock's and Ten should be pure gold :D


 Sabriel

Sabriel set off on her own, completely solo when she was around 18. She managed to not only survive in the wilderness but face and vanquish scary beings, both living and un-dead.  She'd be a plus on ANY expedition.


Hermione


And in staying practical, Hermione would obviously be an asset as well. She's a gifted witch and she's read ALL the books.  As most of us know, she also survived on her own with Harry and Ron in DH so she's got this.

Who would you pick to be stranded on a foreign planet with?

Harry Potter Moment #176

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 
Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory  from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Hello everyone! I had a busy week this week but I'm encouraged that it's already Thursday which means the weekend isn't too far behind. It's a good thing too because we've got one of those lose/lose scenarios in front of us:

Would you rather take a class taught by Lockhart or get detention with Filch? 

I know that 'neither' isn't an option here (as much as I'm tempted to say it anyway LOL) so I'll go with:

Detention with Filch



Because a class with Lockhart would last a whole year and that would feel like an eternity. I never got many detentions while I was in school so I'm liking my odds that I wouldn't get an entire year of detention with Filch so already that's a win.  I do have a feeling that Filch would have likely given me detention maybe a few times a year but that's still better than an entire year with Lockhart!

And just between us? I'd be learning ALL the secret passageways in Hogwarts so: 
Good luck catching me Filch!

Hi everyone, sorry I'm late! I hope everyone is having a great Sunday so far but if not, it's about to get better :

As a skilled Witch/Wizard, you've been experimenting with all kinds of magic and you accidentally used a spell you can't seem to control. Eeep!  Who do you call on to help?

Dumbledore

I can't think of a single spell that Dumbledore couldn't control. At the very least, he would have knowledge of the spell and how to minimize the damage.


Lirael

Lirael learned to wield powerful and complex magic almost intuitively BUT she also happens to love to do lots of reading and research...and she works in The Great Library. She's got this.

Gandalf 

Likewise, Gandalf would probably be able to dispel my haywire magic on the spot but worst case scenario, he'd have read something to point him in the right direction.

Jasnah Kholin

Jasnah isn't scare to break any rules, she's educated, she's intuitive and she doesn't let anything get in her way.  She's learned of powers unheard of for thousands of years. I'm good.

Castiel

With just a quick summoning of his godly powers, Castiel could take care of my wayward spell in no time (bonus points to anyone who got that reference^^)

Who would you 'summon' for help?

Hi Potterheads!  I hope your week is going along swimmingly so far? January is the start of my busy season at work but other than that, things have been fairly quiet on my end. If any of us are looking for excitement though, here's the perfect opportunity:

Would you have put your name in the Goblet of Fire?



Nope! To hell with eternal glory.  Even though I'm a Gryffindor, I'm not really all that competitive and that contest was some serious stuff. I'd much rather watch from the sidelines and focus on my classes...not...you know...staying alive.  Besides, if I'm in Hogwarts at the same time as Harry (and since we're both born on the same year I'm going to assume that I AM ) *ahem* then I'd need to dedicate myself to helping him survive!

What about you?

Top Ten Tuesday #62

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish which features a variety of bookish top ten lists!

Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn't Get To (But TOTALLY plan to)





This Savage Song - I was lucky enough to be gifted this one over the Holidays (thanks Lee ♥), so I now officially have no excuse. Not that I need one. I sooo want to read this!

GEMINA - My pre-order of this arrived during a notorious reading slump but now that I'm getting slowly back to it, I won't be able to hold out for much longer.

The Dark Days Club - Beyond the fact that most of my blogging besties LOVED this, I can't wait to set foot in Victorian London and promptly get my period-appropriate socks knocked off!

The Rose & The Dagger - This is another unforgivable omission. I adored the first book! I just want my paperback of it to match this one but the waiting is KILLING me.

Arcanum Unbound - You'd think with all the Sanderson I read that I'd be caught up but he keeps surprising me! This collection of Cosmore short-stories is a must though.




The Cursed Child - Obviously. My ignorance has become embarrassing but I was scared ok?! I'm ok now and I feel better prepared for...this.

Nevernight - After getting familiar with Kristoff, I've become and fan and this dark fantasy sounds right up my alley!

The Invisible Library - Magical libraries! WIN.  So many friends loved this, I need to join their ranks.

Scythe - This is another one that most of my friends have loved so I must get my hands on it and find out what the fuss is all about :D

The Reader - I actually won this (Thanks C.J.) but I wanted to read it since before it came out so I will be digging in the moment the mood strikes me.

What 2016 releases did you miss out on last year?

Happy 2017 fanboys and fangirls! I hope this year brings us all lots of things to geek out about together because that always makes for the best conversations ♥  I hope you're ready for the new year because something BIG happened:

You got out of bed this morning only to realize that you've gained super-powers overnight! Mutant? Metahuman? Superhero? Who knows?  Who do you seek out to guide you in your new-found powers?

The Flash


The Flash didn't always have his powers so he had to learn how to use them - that would make him an excellent teacher.  And despite his many...er...errors in judgement, I firmly believe that he has good intentions.

Professor Xavier

As much as I'm mesmerized by characters like Magneto and Wolverine, if I was to become some kind of Mutant or Meta, I'd want Professor X showing me the ropes. His powers are just beyond and he genuinely wants to help the gifted live their best lives.

SpiderMan

I live for SpiderMan's sass. Live.For.It. This is another hero who had to learn to control his newfound powers and use them to help others. I think he'd make a really cool mentor! He's also my earliest Comic Book obsession :)

Minerva McGonagall

Having McGonagall in my corner, the way Dumbledore was there for Harry seems exceedingly appealing to me. She'd be tough but fair and I can imagine forming a strong kinship with her. And of course, her magic is EPIC.

Rowan Whitethorn

If he can teach Fire-Heart to control her  insanely powerful fire, that makes him a seriously badass teacher. His brooding good looks might be distracting though...but I'm willing to take that risk ;)

Who would you pick?

2016 End of the Year Survey


2016 End-of-the-Year Survey
Annual End of the Year Survey, Hosted by Perpetual Page Turner

 2016 Reading Stats

 Number Of Books You Read: 45 - and my goal was 50. #soclose

 Number of Re-Reads: 7 

 Genre You Read The Most From: Fantasy as usual


Best in Books


 Best Book You Read In 2016?

It's a toss up between The Raven King and A Court of Mist and Fury but I'm going to go with The Raven King because it was glorious and PYNCH!


 Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?

Talking to Dragons. I enjoyed the series as a whole even though the first book was easily the best one but the conclusion well especially lackluster and a disappointment on the whole.

 Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?

Mistborn: Secret History was the most mind-blowing, followed closely by Illuminae! Just. Wow.



 Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?

I'm still raving about The Old Kingdom books and since I read Clariel and a few novellas in the series this year, let's go with that^^ I've shamelessly pushed that one on EVERYONE.

 Best series you started in 2016? Best Sequel of 2016? Best Series Ender of 2016?

The Bartimaeus Sequence is my new favorite fantasy series of the year! Best Sequel has to be A Court of Mist and Fury (!!!) and The Best Series Ender is obviously The Raven King. Sigh.


 Favorite new author you discovered in 2016?

Both Jonathan Stroud (The Bartimaeus Sequence) and Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl) have got a new fan in me. I can't believe I waited so long to read either!!



Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?

Yet again, I barely strayed away from the fantasy/sci-fi genre this year but I did read Every Word (contemporary) and I thoroughly enjoyed it!  Oh and Illuminae was a first for me in terms of the found-documents-format and the style - that one definitely deserves a shout-out too!

  Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year?

Illuminae. Hands down. I'm surprised I didn't dream about that book from the way it consumed my every waking moment.


 Book You Read In 2016 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year?

Well, I reread the Harry Potter Series for the first time in 5 years and was reminded why it still is my all-time favorite story. ♥ I hope I can make time for a reread again in 2017! I'm also hoping to reread the Throne of Glass Series to prepare for the finale. #ImNotReady

 Favorite cover of a book you read in 2016?

The Raven King


 Most memorable character of 2016?

Aelin. Manon. Lyssandra. Elide. Basically if you're a character in Sarah J. Maas' Throne of Glass Series, you're unforgettable. I know I focused on the ladies because they're so bloody kick-ass but the same can be said for Rowan and Dorian ♥

 Most beautifully written book read in 2016?

That might just be A Court of Mist and Fury. Gawd that was beautiful!



 Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2016?

Hands down, Deathly Hallows. That book will never cease to have a soul-altering impact on me.



 Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2016 to finally read? 

Again, I have to say The Amulet of Samarkand and Artemis Fowl.

 Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2016?

I have three. I shippy one, a funny one and a classic I can't help but be moved to tears by:
*caution: spoilers!*

“When Adam kissed him, it was every mile per hour Ronan had ever gone over the speed limit. It was every window-down, goose-bumps-on-skin, teeth-chattering-cold night drive. It was Adam’s ribs under Ronan’s hands and Adam’s mouth on his mouth, again and again and again. It was stubble on his lips and Ronan having to stop, to get his breath, to restart his heart. They were both hungry animals, but Adam had been starving for far longer.” - The Raven King (shippy quote)

“Or you could be a serial killer who specializes in reading books, then seeking out the authors and murdering them in horrible ways. (If you happen to fall into that last category, you should know that my name isn’t really Alcatraz Smedry, nor is it Brandon Sanderson. My name is in fact Garth Nix, and you can find me in Australia. Oh, and I insulted your mother once. What’re you going to do about it, huh?)” - The Scrivener's Bones (funny quote: when my two favorite male authors joke about one another, it makes me one giddy geek!)

“ I don't need luck, I'll be with Dumbledore.” - Harry Potter + I am not worried, Harry, I am with you.” - Dumbledore. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ The Half Blood Prince

Shortest & Longest Book You Read In 2016?

The shortest book I read is Shimmer, A Charley Davidson novella that was just 7 pages LOL! The longest was Order of the Phoenix at just under 900 pages.

 Book That Shocked You The Most

Empire of Storms because of that damn ending. I'm still not ok!!


 OTP OF THE YEAR (I will go down with this ship!)

PYNCH!!!! Enough said.

 Favorite Non-Romantic Relationship Of The Year

The Raven Boys + Blue

 Favorite Book You Read in 2016 From An Author You’ve Read Previously

Deathly Hallows might be too obvious but I've said The Raven King and ACOMAF multiple times already so there you go.

 Best Book You Read In 2016 That You Read Based SOLELY On A Recommendation From Somebody Else/Peer Pressure:

Illuminae. I doubt I would have read this so soon if not for the insane buzz generated by most of my blogger friends.

 Newest fictional crush from a book you read in 2016?

Rhysand ♥  Oh.My.Gawd.

Best Worldbuilding/Most Vivid Setting You Read This Year?

The Night Court in ACOMAF hands down for the most vivid setting. Just WOW!  I'm also beyond impressed by the World-Building in The Bartimaeus Sequence and have been raving about it for months!

Book That Put A Smile On Your Face/Was The Most FUN To Read?

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was weird and random and made me laugh out loud more times than I could count. Nothing beats a book like that! The Alcatraz Books also really cracked me up and were all around entertaining!



 Book That Made You Cry Or Nearly Cry in 2016?

Are you fucking kidding me?  2016 was a book-crying year!  The Raven King? Check. A Court of Mist and Fury? Check. Empire of Storms? Check! And I'm pretty sure I cried throughout my Harry Potter reread but especially during Deathly Hallows

 Book That Crushed Your Soul?

Empire of Storms for the ending that shall not be mentioned because it was TOO damn CRUEL. It took months for me to get back to my usual reading habits after that!

 Most Unique Book You Read In 2016?

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Illuminae by far and wide!

 Book That Made You The Most Mad (doesn’t necessarily mean you didn’t like it)?

Empire of Storms because of that fucking life-ruining ending.


Your Blogging/Bookish Life


 Favorite review that you wrote in 2016?

It's a toss up between The Raven King and ACOMAF

 Best discussion/non-review post you had on your blog?

I had a lot of fun chatting about reading habits with Do You Get Stuck in a Genre or Are You a Fan of Variety?

I also had a blast geeking out when I discussed Hybrid Hogwarts Houses


 Most Popular Post This Year On Your Blog (whether it be by comments or views)?

Hands down my most popular post this year in terms of views and comments was the Harry Potter Month House Cup post

My most viewed review was Mistborn: Secret History. My most commented on review was Illuminae, followed closely by A Court of Mist and Fury.

My most viewed discussion post was Has Blogging Changed Your Bookish Self?  My most  commented on discussion post was Do You Read Older Books or Focus on New Releases?


 Post You Wished Got A Little More Love?

My review for The Golem's Eye - I know it's a sequel and that's to be expected but I was so excited for this series...I wish it'd gotten more love!

 Did you complete any reading challenges or goals that you had set for yourself at the beginning of this year?

My GR reading challenge was all set to be a success at 50 books for the first time in a few years...but then I reread the Harry Potter Series and ended up falling behind on my reading and reviews because of it. #sorryNOTsorry I also hit a slump after finishing EoS so it is what it is I guess?

Looking Ahead

 One Book You Didn’t Get To In 2016 But Will Be Your Number 1 Priority in 2017?

The Cursed Child
