Book Tag: The Time Capsule

If you ever saw book-related videos on YouTube, you probably know that sometimes they do tag videos in which they answer a set of questions. Since I’m not into filming myself (I’ve tried. Meh. I’m working on it. Things like Book Chat or tags or hauls are so much more exciting in video form.) and I really wanted to do this tag because it is really original and fun! It’s the Time Capsule tag by MathomBooks! Chek them out, they are awesome. Maybe some of you bloggers out there want to do the tag? Do it! Just refer to the original video and do it! It’s fun 🙂

So in this tag, imagine you want to stock a time capsule. What would you want to put in there?

The Rules: You can choose five books. One to entertain, one to evoke emotions, one to enlighten, one to teach the beauty of reading and one to explain our modern culture.

So, here are my picks! In this wonderful read color, you get the answers of my boyfriend! Bonus!

To Entertain:

Out choices to entertain!

The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide by Douglas Adams – Wouldn’t it be fun to read this in the future as an alien race who just built an interstellar highway through Earth? I think so. But I will not put this book in the capsule until I finished it, because I actually just read the first book.

Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix by J.K. Rowling It’s the best book in the most entertaining series.

To Evoke Emotions

Our choices to evoke emotion!

Through a Glass, Darkly by Jostein Gaarder – A sad and beautiful book about a little girl who is really sick. It’s a really sweet and deep children’s book.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman – You really feel for Nobody, you are sad with him, happy, angry.

To Enlighten

Out choices to enlighten!

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – Okay. A cliché answer. But, this book had a huge influence on me! I read it first when I was about 11 and it really had an impact. It teaches so much about friendship, love, life… This is why I chose it.

1984 by George Orwell – To show how a society should not be like.

To Teach the Beauty of Reading

Our choices to teach the beauty of reading

The City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers – This book is probably my favorite book of all time. I read it in German, so I don’t know if the translation is any good, but I hope so. If you like fantastical storys at all, and if you like really creative world-building, witty and intelligent writing styles, check out the Zamonia books by Walter Moers. This one, Rumo and The 13 1/2 Lifes of Captain Bluebear are the best.

So why The City of Dreaming Books to teach the beauty of reading? Because it describes how magical reading is, it is a book full of love for books, of how they smell, feel and make you cry, laugh and how they can change your life.

Fahrenheit 451 by Rad Bradbury To show how dangerous it can be not to read books

To Explain Our Modern Culture

Our choices to teach about our modern culture

You can’t possibly explain everything about modern culture in one book. You can give a little bit about what people believe in, how our political system works or doesn’t work, something that explains this in detail, something that gives metaphors. So this is a really hard question.

1984 would be too cynical as an answer, right? I will go with Dead Famous by Ben Elton. It shows that we have a legal system and crappy reality tv.

Lautlos by Frank Schätzing (author of The Swarm. This book was unfortunaly not translated) – This thriller shows what is important to modern culture and the conflict between western and eastern societies.

I hope you had fun with our answers! What would you put in a time capsule? Answer in the comments or post it on your blog!

May 2012 Reading Wrap Up!

So May is over! Way too fast, for it is my favorite month of the year. But June is okay, too, I guess. Although May was so sunny this year and it’s 5 hours until June and it is already raining like crazy.

I got a kindle this month and read four books on it already. I also read four physical books. Here they are!

Some of the books I read in May

Middle Grade:

Harper Madigan – Junior High Private Eye by Chelsea M. Campbell

Loved the setting, did not like the plot too much. Cute read though! Check out my review!

Young Adult:

Wither by Lauren DeStefano

I’m underwhelmed by this. It’s okay, the writing is quite good, but that’s all for me. The setting is a little too far fetched for me and I didn’t care for it too much. It got some great reviews from other people though. And I really love the cover too.

The Thirteenth by G.L. Twynham

I’m in love with this book. Really. SO awesome. Check out my review!

Bizarro:

Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland by Carlton Mellick III

A new found love – the Bizarro genre! I will for sure read more of this. Check out my review of this book here!

Science Fiction/Dystopian:

Animal Farm by George Orwell

I liked it! I think it is a good book to learn about the way suppressive regimes work.

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I liked this quite a lot. Although it was a little hard for me to get through at times, for I’m not that into military strategy stuff. But I loved the ending! (Technically I finished this on June 1st, 2 am. Whatever. I hadn’t slept yet so for me it was still May 😉 )

Fantasy:

The Magicians’ Guild by Trudi Canavan

Loved this! Such a great read. Great setting, great plot. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series! Chek out my review!

Play:

No Exit by Jean-Paul Sartre

Loved it! Don’t know what so say about it though. Therefore probably no review.

Update on challenges:

For the Around the Stack in How Many Ways challenge, I read a play (No exit) , a crime book (Harper Madigan) and a book of the bizarro genre (Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland) this month!

What else went on here at The Book Hunter?

I participated in the Book Chat by Misty!

I introduced the On The Hunt feature, which will be about books that sound interesting to me and I want to read/buy! This time I talked about pirates!

Also I’m 5 books ahead in my reading challenge on goodreads! Awesome, right? Let’s dance the awesome-dance.

What did you read last month?

Book Review – Harper Madigan: Junior High Private Eye by Chelsea Campbell

Harper Madigan has a detective agency at his school. And he is very serious about that. He even wears a trench coat, he is that serious. Somehow, everything is going wrong at the moment. The vice principal assigned him a partner, something that he really does not need. He just can’t find something to proof that his arch enemy is a criminal. And Danigal, who he used to be very close to, asks for his help. If Harper can’t prove that she is innocent, she’s going to be expelled! Who pushed the theater diva? And how is the powerful PTA involved? They control everything at this school, after all.

After hearing what this book was about, I had to read it. I’m really, and I mean really, into kid detective stories. I love Disney’s Fillmore! , Veronica Mars and I own almost 150 The Three Investigators cassettes. I’m normally not a huge fan of crime fiction, but this book sounded just awesome. I ended up being a little bit disappointed.

The plot itself was quite good, though a little bit too straight forward for my taste. I hoped there would be more twists and turns, and I hoped the solution would be a little bit more exciting. I was not happy with the solution at all, and I even thought the ending a little too unrealistic, because the evidence was just not enough to proof who did it. At least in my opinion.

As for characters…I was frustrated with Harper, because he just does not want to see the truth. And then, when he finally changes, I just could not buy that. It was a sudden change and just not believable to me. He came across as rather arrogant, which is okay for a detective, but annoyed me at times.

I loved how serious the tone of the book was. However I had hoped for a more humorous tone, something more similar to Disney’s Fillmore!. But that was just my expectation, I can’t hold that against the book.

That all being said, I thought the book was really entertaining. Despite some small concerns, I enjoyed the story and the reading experience. Although I had my problems with the ending, it did open up the possibility of a sequel. And I would totally read that! I would however hope for a more complex plot. I suppose this is planned as a middle grade book. In that case I am sure that the audience can handle more twists and turns!

Read the first two chapters on Chelsea’s website!

Chelsea is not only an author, she knits too! She sells knitted My Little Ponys at her Etsy shop!

On The Hunt – Arrrrr, Pirates!

On The Hunt is a new feature on this blog, on which I plan to share the books that I plan on reading someday because they sound so awesome. It might be about books I already own or others. I might always do a theme, but we’ll see. Maybe they will end up being just a collection of books that sound good!

Wax statue of Jack Sparrow – Madame Tussauds (taken from wikimedia.org)

After watching The Pirates Of The Carribean today (and drooling over Captain Jack Sparrow, the prettiest man ever!…except for my boyfriend of course. Ehem. Love you!), I realized that I have not read one single book about priates! I think. I’m pretty sure. I think. Although “pirates” is a definite buzz word for me! (Check out Misty‘s book chat on buzz words and deal breakers!) I love the idea behind pirates, which to me is freedom, equality and a whole lotta rum. Yes, that is the romantic side of pirates. I know that it wasn’t like that. I don’t mind historical incorrectness in this case.

So I did a little research, browsing through listopia, which is my favorite tool on goodreads. Seriously, I could spend hours with it. And I have. I found some promising books there, and I will share them with you!

taken from wikimedia.org

Treasure Island by Robert L. Stevenson – THE classic of this genre. Right? I have seen many adaptations of this story, but I have not read the original yet. I already downloaded this to my Kindle because it’s free, but maybe I will listen to the audio book from freeclassicaudiobooks.com.

Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie – I already own this as a Penguins Classic, so it already is on my huge to-be-read pile. I have seen the Disney version, of course. I’m interested to read the original story!

Pirates! by Celia Rees – I have not heard anything about this book before today. It is a YA pirates book apparently. We’ll see!

The Princess Bride by William Goldman – I’m not sure about this one. I mean, I’m not sure wether or not it is about pirates. I have no idea what it is about actually, but it seems like everybody loves this. And the movie. So I really want to read this! And watch the movie.

The Dust Of 100 Dogs by A.S. KingMisty rated it 5 stars on goodreads. It seems I have to check it out then! You can watch the trailer here!

The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke – I found out about this on A Tapestry Of Words’ Waiting On Wednesday. I suppose it’s more about assassins and magic than about pirates, but it still sounds awesome. It will be released this year in October!

Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding – I may be stretching it here but – Steampunk pirates!! That just sounds almost too good.

Would you read pirate books? Do any of these sound good to you? Let me know!

Book Review – Warrior Wolf Women Of The Wasteland by Carlton Mellick III

Warrior Wolf Women Of The Wasteland by Carlton Mellick III

Warrior Wolf Women Of The Wasteland by Carlton Mellick III

If that title did not make your mouth water already, feel free to continue reading my review! You will either want to read this book right away and run to your next online retailer (I don’t think you will be able to find this at your local book store…) – or you will be disgusted and never want to read my blog again. I just have a handful of readers, so I really hope for the first option.

Warrior Wolf Women Of The Wasteland is a book of the bizarro fiction genre. This genre is fairly new, it exists since about the early 2000s. So what is this genre about? Imagine cult films, like the famous midnight movies from the 70s, Takashi Miike films, Tim Burton, maybe Quentin Tarantino – so cult films – as books. Really weird, sometimes disturbing, absurd, satiric storytelling is what bizarro fiction is all about. Now that, I believe, is really polarizing. Either at this point you are really interested or you already know you’ll hate those books.

I started reading this book almost by accident. I had just gotten my Kindle and my boyfriend was looking through the available books and read this title out loud. We laughed about it, since it sounded like the worst book in the world. I told him to get the sample on my Kindle and read it to me while I was getting ready. And we were surprised how good it sounded! After finishing the sample, I knew I wanted to read the whole book! It was that good.

The book is set in a post-apocalyptic world. After almost everything was destroyed by a nuclear war, the only remaining company took over and formed a new country – McDonaldland. The McDonalds regime is strikt, cooking is against the law, you have to eat three times a day and pray five times. The government controlls every aspect of life. But there is something terribly wrong with the people of McDonaldsland. The more sex the women have, the more they turn into giant wolves, and some man grow extra limbs. Of course, McDonaldsland cannot let this happen. So sex is against the law and women who broke the sex law and the male mutants are thrown out of McDonaldsland into the Wasteland, where the wolves live.

taken from knowyourmeme.com

No, seriously, I just loved the story. The setting is brilliant, it is twisted and weird and all I could wish for. The plot was action packed and fast paced, and there where a lot of fight scenes. This is definetly not a book for sensitive people. There is blood, gore and characters that you just learned to like are brutally killed. There also is sex and rape, as I said, not for sensitive people. Oh, on this note, don’t read the book right before you go to bed. You certainly don’t want to dream of the stuff that goes on in this book. I can tell you that.

I really don’t want to give too much away, if you are interested, you really should experience it on your own. If you are into weird, disturbing, satiric cult films, I think you will love this book as much as I did. If you hate that kind of films, you certainly don’t want to touch this book with a ten-foot pole.

5/5 Nuff said.

April 2012 Reading Wrap Up

Wow! I actually read twelve books in April! That’s a lot for me, really! Also, last was the month I picked up blogging again! I participated in the readathon last month, too, and I had a lot of fun! See how I did here and here!

The books I read in April

The books I read in April

So on to the huge list of books I read!

Children’s Lit:

The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis

The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

The Horse And His Boy by C.S. Lewis

I liked the first three books of the Chronicles of Narnia, I enjoyed The Horse And His Boy most! I will review those once I finished them all.

Young Adult:

What Happened To Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

I really liked it, although it was almost the same reading experience as the other two books I read by Sarah Dessen (Along For The Ride, Just Listen). This is because I really like the way I feel while reading these books. It’s relaxing and I find myself as a teenager in the characters sometimes and I just feel really good while reading these books.

A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

You can find my review here! I liked it, but it was not overwhelming.

The Knife Of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

I have a review up here! I loved this! Very obscure and awesome setting, great suspenceful story!

Classics:

The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz by Frank L. Baum

A very cute classic. I was surprised that I just remembered some small fragments of the story! Great story, I liked this a lot!

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

One of my favorite books now. Loved it! My review can be found here!

Around The World In 80 Days by Jules Verne

I liked the story a lot, but I had trouble connecting to the characters. Review to come!

Science Fiction/Dystopian:

Neuromancer by William Gibson

I had my troubles with this book, but in the end I liked it quite a lot! Review here!

1984 by George Orwell

Again, another new favorite of mine! Check out my review here!

Anthology:

The Tales Of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling

A very cute anthology! I really liked the stories and I was glad there was something out of the Harry Potter universe I hadn’t read yet. I enjoyed the read a lot!

Update on challenges:

I finished Neuromancer by William Gibson, Around The World In 80 Days by Jules Verne and 1984 by George Orwell for the Around The Stacks In How Many Ways – Challenge! With Science Fiction, Dystopian and Adventure I covered three genres already! I think I will change the challenge settings for me though. I think I will not determine which books I want to use for this challenge and which genres I want to read. I want to read what I feel like reading and not feel obliged to read a certain book next. That kind of takes the fun out of it for me and I really don’t want that!

What did you read last month?

Book Review – A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

A Great And Terrible Beauty is the first book in a trilogy (again. And again. Who writes stand-alones anymore?), it is Libba Bray’s first novel and it was published in 2003.

It is the year 1895. Gemma Doyle is an unhappy teenager. She lives in India with her parents, but she would much rather go with her mother to England. But then, on her 16th birthday, Gemma finds out that she has a terrible power and her life changes completly. She is finally allowed to go to a school near London, but she couldn’t be more miserable.

So this is the setting, a boarding school at the end of the 19th century. This reminded me a little bit of some early chapters of Jane Eyre. I liked this! This was a story about loss and grief, about being thrown into a new situation, about freedom and all that with some paranormal stuff mixed into it. Gemma makes friends and enemys at her new School, she struggles to be accepted and respected. At this point I thought, this is the definition of a book for young adults. It deals with all those fears and wishes. But, luckily, Libba Bray goes beyond that. She also talks about freedom, choices and forgiveness.

I thought Gemma was a very believable character. She was stubborn, quick-tempered, bitchy and had that teenage egocentricity. Sometimes, I was unhappy with how she did not see obvious things, but all in all I liked her character and how she developed during the book. I also liked the other girls and how different sides of their characters where shown during the book. On some points though I thought the girls acted a little out of character. Those inconsistencies were rare though, so I could overlook them.

Overall the writing was really good. Sometimes there were some really beautifully written passages, sometimes it was just okay. Libba Bray managed to create a 19th century setting without destroying it through a too modern writing style and without making it hard to read. It didn’t feel like it was written during that time period, but it was a good read nonetheless and I really liked the atmosphere of this book.

At the beginning of the book it reminded me of a strange mixture of Mean Girls and The Craft (from what I remember a really crappy teen horror film from the 90s about four girls playing with witchcraft), but the book managed to get out of that. It was not incredibly fast-paced, but I liked it that way. What I disliked were some decisions Gemma and other characters made. I wanted them to ask more questions and to open their eyes for the obvious. So, considering all that, I think A Great And Terrible Beauty is a really good book, but not overwhelming. I will read the next book in the series for sure, but I don’t think it will be one of my favorite books.

4/5 stars

End Of The Event Meme

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? Hour 8. I was super-tired and totally ready to go to bed.
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
    Tales Of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling is a great read-a-thon book! It’s thin and a light read, perfect for those late hours
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
    It was great the way it was, thank you 🙂
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
    As I said, everything was great, I had a lot of fun!

    I think I enjoyed The Boy And His Horse most. It was a great Narnia novel, to be the best one yet!
  8. Which did you enjoy least?
    I think it was Around The World In 80 Days by Jules Verne. I enjoyed all three books, but this one was a little dry at times.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
    I wasn’t a cheerleader 🙂
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? If I have the time, I will definitly participate again! I think I will be a reader again, I’m not that good at cheering 😉

The read-a-thon was a great experience, although I didn’t get as much reading done as I had hoped. Maybe I will try to go for the full 24 hours next time. I also missed out on all those great mini-challenges and all those fabulous blog posts from other participants! I focussed more on reading so there was not enough time to visit all the blogs I had planned to visit!

Will you participate again? How was your read-a-thon?

Read-a-Thon Update Post Day One!

Happy Read-a-Thon everyone!

How many books will you read during read-a-thon?

The Read-a-Thon starts at 12 GMT, which is 2pm here in Germany! My strategy for reading as much as possible is the following: I read until midnight. Then I decide whether or not I con go on for another two hours. I will sleep until 8 am, get up and start reading again until the Read-a-Thon is over.  I will not go for the full 24 hours because my sleeping schedule is messed up as it is and I’m currently trying to fix that. Staying up for 24 hours will probably not help with that.

I will not be reading the whole time, I will be updating this post and looking at other blogs and see how they are doing! Interesting in what I’m planning on reading this read-a-thon?I posted my to-read pile here!

T- 1 hour, 30 minutes

I finished my weekend shopping and everything is set up so that the reading can start! I will take a short nap now so that I will not get tired as easily!

Read-a-thon Updates: ——————–

2 pm : It’s starting!

Opening questionaire:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

Hamburg, Germany, Europe!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

The Tales Of Beedle The Bard! I’ll be reading it inbetween books. That’s the plan anyway 😉
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

Asparagus! It’s that time of the year again, yay!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

Hi, I’m Ace! Actually, my name is Ann-Christine. But that’s a very long, strange and complicated name. That’s why most people call me AC, or Ace! I started my book blog this January! I have a huge TBR Pile, and the read-a-thon is a great opportunity to work on that!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

This is my first read-a-thon. I’m looking forward to many hours reading time and many interesting blog posts from many different blogs! Happy reading everyone!

6pm: Finished the first book!

Just this second the church bells ring, it is exactly 6pm now and I just finished The Boy And His Horse by C.S. Lewis!

Where there snacks? Yes! I had homemade bread with cheese! Yum! I also took a short break to go to the supermarket across the street. And I will have to do that again now because I forgot something.

10pm: A late meal and tired eyes

I just finished cooking my meal (grilled asparagus with parsley-covered potatoes) and I’m eating it while writing this post! So in these past 3 hours I started two new books. First I started Tales Of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling. Originally I wanted to read one story during books, but it is so much fun to read that I read 3 storys by now. The second book I started is Around The World In 80 Days by Jules Verne! Like the Narnia book earlier, I’m reading this one in German.

Currently reading: Tales Of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling, Around The World In 80 Days by Jules Verne

I have to admit, I’m already getting a little tired. But it’s less than two hours to midnight and I think I’ll be able to go on until than. Will I go to bed then or stay up till 2am ? I don’t know yet, but I will keep you posted 😉

12pm: Bedtime!

During the last 2 hours I ate dinner, talked to my boyfriend on the phone and updated this post. That’s why I didn’t get much reading done. But I finished the Tales Of Beedle The Bard! Now I can go to bed feeling accomplished.
