I’m so excited to be doing this tag because Sailor Moon has been one of my most favorite things for as long as I can remember. As soon as I saw this tag I knew I just HAD to do it. This tag was created by Kristin @ Super Space Chick, Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books, Cee @ The Novel Hermit, Cristina @ Girl in the Pages, and Sierra @ SDavReads and is the introduction post to a month long Summer of Sailor Scouts that they’ll be hosting!
Moon: A book that makes you hungry
For this I’m picking To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before because there is a lot of cooking involved in this duology and some of it is baked goods like cookies and pastries, and others are more ethnic foods from different countries. It makes me want to try a bunch of different things!
Mercury: A book that features science and technology
Definitely the Starbound trilogy because in each novel there is new technology, different themes, and so much more to explore and learn from. From gadets that can make whole islands seemingly disappear, to hyper space travel, there is no shortage of what to expect from this stellar sci-fi trilogy. (See what I did there?)
Venus: A book that makes you want to play video games
I honestly had the hardest time picking a book for this because I play video games as is, but I’m going to go with Saga because there’s a lot of action and sequences that take place that are reminiscent of video game play.
Mars: A book inspired by mythology or folklore
The Wrath and the Dawn definitely has elements of folklore even if it’s a retelling, but it’s got a lot of elements of folklore in it, in my opinion. Magic, flying carpets, curses… you name it!
Jupiter: A book that gave you strong feelings
A Court of Mist and Fury, hands down, gave me such strong feelings while I was reading it. There were giggles, gasps, feelings of dread, hope, love, and more that I felt while reading this book. Oh man. So good. (P.S. Jupiter is my favorite Sailor Scout!)
Saturn: A post apocalyptic book you love
Really the only “post apocalyptic” book I can think of that I’ve read and enjoyed was Divergent. I’m not big on dytopian/post apoc things, so I don’t really have anything else to go by.
Pluto: A time travel book
The only one I can think of right now is Passenger and I’m not exactly a big fan of it. I haven’t finished it and I’m not sure I will, but there’s a huge element of time travel in the book that takes place and the time aspect spans hundreds of years.
Uranus: A book featuring elemental magic
Truthwitch definitely comes to mind because there are a lot of different types of elemental magic, such as water, wind, earth, fire, but also magic like truth, blood, thread, and more.
Neptune: A book featuring music
Eleanor & Park has music! The two characters share music with one another as they start to fall for one another and it’s adorable and sweet and I love it.
Tuxedo Mask: A book with masquerades or hidden identities
I think I’m going to have to go with Daughter of Smoke & Bone for this one because there is a scene in the first book where it’s based around a masquerade and it’s also one of my favorite scenes in the series, so definitely this one.
Rini/Chibi Moon: A favorite middle grade book
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is definitely my favorite middle grade book! I don’t read MG that often, but I can say with certainty that I really enjoy the HP series (even if I haven’t finished it yet!).
Luna, Artemis & Diana: A book for animal lovers
I’m going to have to go with the manga Chi’s Sweet Home because it’s a bunch of short stories about a sweet little house cat and it’s adorable and also an anime and just go watch it or read it. So. Cute.
Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦
Who is your favorite Sailor Scout? Which book do you recommend for animal lovers? Also, what book gave you strong feelings?
