Lyrics Book Tag- Shake It Off by Taylor Swift

       I haven't been on the blog in this time because of personal reasons (college stuff), I want to recompense this loss time with a lovely Lyrics Book Tag that I will do once a week.
       In this Tag I will choose a song and I am going to use some of the lyrics, doing tags about it and choose books that comes to my mind when I read them.
      Well here we go ...

"I stay out too late"- The latest Book that I stay out to late reading it
 Voice of Gods ( Legacy of Kings #0.5) by Eleanor Herman. 

"I go on too many dates"- A character that dates a lot of times
 Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter series.

"Can't stop, won't stop moving"- A character that it doesn't stay still in one place. 
Wilhelmina from The Orphan Queen series. 

"Saying, "It's gonna be alright""- A phrase I wanted to say to a character when him/her when that person is  passing thorough a bad moment
Wilhelmina from The Orphan Queen (Yes, again, for THAT PART especially. I don't want to say to avoid spoiling the book to anyone).

"'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play" - A player in a book 
Ed from Why Broke up.

"And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate"- A hater in a book or a person I HATE 
Celeste from The Selection series (well I hated her but I hated her in the first and second book with fire) 

"Heart-breakers gonna break, break, break, break, break"-  A Heart-Breaker in a book 
Heartrenders from the Grisha series (Shadow and Bone). Well they are a group, not a person and if you read the books you will know why. Besides, they are grisha, they are the best of Heart-Breakers (To the people who read the books: See what I did there ? ) 

"And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake"- A faker in a book
Well in this lovely tag I got help because I didn't know who to put in here so here's a answer from a friend from twitter. 
Wilhelmina from The Orphan Queen.

"I never miss a beat
I'm lighting up my feet
And that's what they don't see
That's what they don't see
"- A character that appears in my mind as I read this part 
Jason Grace from The Heroes of Olympus

I never miss a beat
I'm lighting up my feet
And that's what they don't see
That's what they don't see

"I'm dancing on my own (dancing on my own)

I make the moves up as I go (moves up as I go)"- A character that is dancing on his/her own

Bliss Edwards from Losing It series. 

Well that's it from this first edition of the Lyric Tag. Leave your opinions about it in the comments below .

Review Voice of Gods (Blood of Gods and Royals, #0.5) by Eleanor Herman

Voice of Gods (Blood of Gods and Royals, #0.5)
Voice of Gods by Eleanor Herman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


As the end of an age approaches, gods whisper horrors, families scheme for power, and one woman may hold the secret to a lost legacy.

At 19, Ada of Caria yearns to take the Snake Blood throne from her mad older siblings—and seeks the help of a young orphaned girl named Helen, the first True Oracle to have walked the earth in more than three hundred years.

Helen may be able to channel the voice of the gods, but she hates her gift, and will do anything to get rid of it—even lie to her best friend, Myrtale, the priestess-princess of Epirus who is destined to marry King Philip II of Macedon even though she loves another. And in the shadows lurks a handsome green-eyed stranger who has more at stake—and more to lose—than anyone could possibly imagine.Amid jealousy and heartbreak, torrid affairs and secret rendezvous, it is spoken by the gods that either Helen or Myrtale —newly named Olympias— will carry the destiny of the known world within her womb.
The prequel to LEGACY OF KINGS, VOICE OF GODS traces the intricate web of love and betrayal that led up to the birth of history’s most powerful leader, Alexander the Great.


In this book we got to know Helen and how she meet Ada and Myrtale (later on Olympias.

It was pretty interesting how in this book shows stuff that becomes important in the next book.

Most of my doubts of the next book, Legacy of Kings, were answered in this book.

It was nice seeing all the old characters in their youth and seeing how all got to know each other 

Thank to this book, I got to know Helen and read how much had she been through and because of that I think of her as a strong person.

Title: Read the book to know why it's called like that.

Characters: There is a lot of character development and I like it because of that.

Narrative: Third person, in the POV's of Helen, Ada and Myrtale.

Story: Since it have three different POV's the story it's different.

Setting: Greece, since 362 BC, through the years.

Conclusion: if you want to know more about Legacy of King, read this book, it's short and it will answer the mayority of question you may have.
