Without further ado, here is the Sailor Moon Book Tag!
A book that makes you hungry
When We Collided by Emery Lord | Jonah’s an aspiring chef and reading about his recipes, restaurants, and cathartic time in the kitchen will activate your appetite!
A book featuring technology
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff | Not only does this book feature technology heavily, but it has technology play a major character (Am I not merciful?).
A book inspired by mythology or folklore
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas | The second book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series is modeled after the myth of Persephone and Hades (and also, you know I was going to find an excuse to mention this book at some point ;))
A book that gave you strong feelings
Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton | I loved this book but it gave me major anxiety while reading with all of the suspense and backstabbing!
A book that made you want to play video games
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin | The creepy asylum setting and the unreliable narration by Mara would make the PERFECT (and most terrifying) video game.
A book featuring elemental magic
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo | I love the elemental systems of magic in this series, and I would definitely be a Tidemaker.
A book featuring music
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen | While music doesn’t play an overwhelmingly large part in the novel, it holds a special significance in aiding Owen in teaching Annabelle, and himself, how to truly listen.
A post-apocalyptic book you loved
Angelfall by Susan Ee | I love love love the unusual take Ee takes in this series, from the more original view of the angel trope to including mental illness and a California setting.
A book about time travel
Passenger by Alex Bracken | This book covers so many places and time periods, and has one of the most stunning covers I’ve ever seen.
A favorite middle grade book
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin | Quite possibly my favorite middle grade book ever, it feels like a game of Clue come to life.
A book/series with hidden identities
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas | While I can’t specify who has the hidden identity without spoiling, I loved finding out who was hiding in plain sight in this series!
A book for animal lovers or a book with an animal loving protagonist.
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot | Fat Louie, anyone?
I love all of your graphics<3!! I'm so excited that we're finally able to share this with everyone today and I can't wait to read all of your future Sailor Moon posts<3 And I've never read the Mara Dyer books! I always consider it but I've heard bad things about the third so I'm not sure if I should invest my time in them…
Thank you, Kristin! I really think that if you love psychological thrillers and unreliable narrators, you should really try out the Mara Dyer trilogy. The third one does go in a bit of a different direction than I think a lot of readers were anticipating, but it’s still a great series overall!
This is an absolutely fa illusion idea. I have loves Sailor Moon since I was young. If you don’t mind I will be doing this tag really soon. ?
Yes, please feel free to participate, we love finding other bloggers who love Sailor Moon!
Awesome. I’m wondering how you did your graphics they are absolutely adorable and would like to do something similar if I’m able
This is so fun and I LOVE the graphics! Adorable! I think I’ve seen maybe… one Sailor Moon episode ever. I was more obsessed with Cardcaptor Sakura.
Thank you, Ellen! I haven’t watched Cardcaptor Sakura, but my bf has!
This.Is.Awesome. LOVE Sailor Moon and LOVE this tag ♥ I agree with Throne of Glass, ACoMaF and Illuminae but I still need to read the rest of your fab picks here^^
I’m so glad this feature is alerting me to other bloggers who are Sailor Moon fans!
I LOVE Sailor Moon! This is fabulous! I’m going to have to do the tag sometime.
Yes please do!!! Share the Sailor Moon love! 🙂
OH MY GOODNESS! The graphics you’ve created for the tag are PERFECTION <3 And yay for our Sailor Moon event! I cannot wait to see it all come together and read everyone's posts 🙂
Thank you so much, Alexa! They took a while but it was worth it, I’m so excited to be posting about Sailor Moon!
Fantastic list! I love how almost all of us have ACOMAF on our lists. It’s just so stinkin’ good! Looking forward to your future posts and co-hosting all this awesomeness with you! 🙂
I find a way to work ACOMAF into any and all situations 😉
Okay sooo I have no idea about Sailor Moon but have always wanted to get into it in general. Where do you suggest I start?? The manga, the show, etc? HELP.
YES PLEASE DO. I started with the anime, and I grew up watching the English dub on Cartoon Network (these are still my favorite versions to watch, because it’s the voice actors I grew up with). The mangas were really hard to find growing up since they had been discontinued, but within the past few years they’ve rereleased them and you can easily find them on Amazon or at B&N. There are some differences but the general plot is the same, especially in the first few mangas and series of the show. ALSO they just released POP figures and it’s so bad but I’m obsessed! You can also find a lot of Sailor Moon merchandise (shirts, etc.) at Hot Topic. I would definitely start with the show (perhaps season 1) and see if you like it, and then start the mangas from there!
I have posted my version of this tag on my blog:
I LOVE CLUE. I’m going to need to look up The Westing Game.
Yes, it’s fantastic! And it has so much nuance and intrigue for a middle grade book!
[…] Earlier this year, Alexa of Alexa Loves Books, Cee of The Novel Hermit, Kristin of Super Space Chick, Sierra of SDavReads & I all discovered that we shared a mutual love and appreciation for Sailor Moon! After exchanging plenty of flailing tweets and constantly bringing up our love for this magical and empowering story, we felt it was only right to celebrate it – and that’s what happening this July. Every week will feature a brand new blog post per day from each of us, and we’re so excited to be sharing the Sailor Moon love with all our readers! For the schedule and giveaway, check out the announcement post! […]
This is so great! I LOVE all the books picked for each Scout! and I love that Tuxedo Mask and Luna/Artemis were included!!!
Ah, brings back middle school days in front of the tv waiting for Toonami to start!
Thank you, Eli! Watching Sailor Moon on Toonami is one of my favorite after-school memories! I’m in need of a rewatch! 🙂
[…] I needed to finally get into this series/hobby. I never watched the show as a kid and asked Cristina on her intro post how I could get started with this fandom. She pointed me to the show first followed by the manga, […]
