I’m back with another Book Tag, this time is the: Baby It’s Cold Outside Book Tag. When I saw Erin @ Reading On A Star blog about it, which she also created it by the way, I just love it and I need it to do it right away! Is just the perfect Tag to welcome the Winter (my favorite season).
I just want to add very quickly, that it’s been very VERY cold lately where I live, so I’m just going to say it: ”Baby, It’s, cold outside.”…Sorry, it was bad but I couldn’t help myself.

-Snow Day – What’s your “comfort” book?–
Actually this one was a hard but, only because, any Percy Jackson book enteres this category. So, the answer is: Rick Riordan.
-Snow Angels – What’s a book that you love so much you would want to be buried with it(a little morid, but…)?-
OMG I know exactly which book I will want to be buried with (Is that odd?):
Genre: Historical Fiction, Fantasy, LGBT
Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. By all rights their paths should never cross, but Achilles takes the shamed prince as his friend, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine their bond blossoms into something deeper – despite the displeasure of Achilles’ mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess. But then word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus journeys with Achilles to Troy, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.
Profoundly moving and breathtakingly original, this rendering of the epic Trojan War is a dazzling feat of the imagination, a devastating love story, and an almighty battle between gods and kings, peace and glory, immortal fame and the human heart.
Like I always say, and I will never get tired of saying, everyone need to read this book!
-Warm Socks – What’s a book that makes you feel warm inside?(The fluffiest, cutest romance you’ve ever read?)-

First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations.
The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince. Alex is busy enough handling his mother’s bloodthirsty opponents and his own political ambitions without an uptight royal slowing him down. But beneath Henry’s Prince Charming veneer, there’s a soft-hearted eccentric with a dry sense of humor and more than one ghost haunting him.
As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. And Henry throws everything into question for Alex, an impulsive, charming guy who thought he knew everything: What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?
-Hot Cocoa – What winter-themed novels have you previously read?–
I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t really read a lot of Winter-themed novels. I’m reading Little Women in December… does that count? (Also, how pretty is the edition I got?)
Genre: Classics, Fiction
Generations of readers young and old, male and female, have fallen in love with the March sisters of Louisa May Alcott’s most popular and enduring novel, Little Women. Here are talented tomboy and author-to-be Jo, tragically frail Beth, beautiful Meg, and romantic, spoiled Amy, united in their devotion to each other and their struggles to survive in New England during the Civil War.
It is no secret that Alcott based Little Women on her own early life. While her father, the freethinking reformer and abolitionist Bronson Alcott, hobnobbed with such eminent male authors as Emerson, Thoreau, and Hawthorne, Louisa supported herself and her sisters with “woman’s work,” including sewing, doing laundry, and acting as a domestic servant. But she soon discovered she could make more money writing. Little Women brought her lasting fame and fortune, and far from being the “girl’s book” her publisher requested, it explores such timeless themes as love and death, war and peace, the conflict between personal ambition and family responsibilities, and the clash of cultures between Europe and America.
-Sledding – What’s a book with the best plot twists? Who’s an author that always keeps you on your toes?-
Hmmm I don’t really read Thrillers, but Sherlock Holmes always manages to take the ”Detective” out of me and leave me surprise at the end.
-Ugly Sweaters – What’s a book with the ugliest cover?-
I don’t like to judge books by its covers, but the ACOTAR new covers are not really doing it for me. And, it’s so sad for me, because I haven’t actually bought the physical books and I cannot find in Amazon the original hardcovers any more. I mean, who made the decision of changing those already pretty covers? So, yeah, I’m stuck with the ugly covers.
-Movie Marathon – What’s the last book you binge read?–
The Tower of Nero by Rick Riordan! If it wasn’t for work and having to be a responsable adult, I would have finish reading this book in one sitting. Still, I managed to finish this baby in two days. I had been waiting all year for the publication of The Tower of Nero and, like always, Rick Riordan did not disappoint.
Genre: Fantasy, Mythology, Middle Grade
