Tag: R.I.P It or Ship It

I think I first saw Christine of polandbananasBOOKS do this tag, but I believe it was created by emmmabooks. The rules are pretty simple: 1. Write down the names of characters from different books on scraps of paper. You can do as many as you like, but I did 22 (9 girls and 13 boys). 2. Put … Continue reading

Yesterday’s tag was so much fun that I’ve decided to do another one today. :) And as it happens, I was actually tagged to do this one as well. :) Thanks a lot Appletaile! :) The book to movie wishlist tag is, thankfully, not quite as complicated and difficult to explain as the zombie apocalypse tag. … Continue reading

Books & Music #2

Books & Music #2

You can find #1 here. :) 5 Songs that remind me of books: 1. Winter by Nieves − Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater Well, I feel like it’s pretty obvious why I chose this song (even to those of you who haven’t read the book), but even without the winter theme, I can kind of imagine Sam singing … Continue reading

Books & Music #1

So, I’ve seen different versions of this thing around for a while now, and since I really enjoy watching those videos/reading those posts (oh, and the fact that books and music are two of my favourite things), I wanted to  try it myself. :) It’s all pretty nice and simple, really. I have chosen a couple … Continue reading

How I Rate Books

How I Rate Books

A few days ago, Regan of PeruseProject posted a video talking about how she rates books, and I thought I’d do the same (except for the video-part). In Regan’s video, she said that she base her ratings on two things: expectation and the book’s intent (watch her video for further explanation). I agree with her … Continue reading

This morning, I woke up to the pretty random, though not unreasonable, request to see The Heroes of Olympus without their dust jackets.

Five Favourites of the Month: August

Five Favourites of the Month: August

Five Favourites of August: 5. The Paradise In August, I started watching this TV-series called The Paradise, that takes place in a department store  some time during the 19th century. Admittedly, it’s not the best show out there or anything, but I do love myself a nice period drama, and if you’re into that sort of thing … Continue reading

Can Anybody Find Meee…Somebody to Love

Can Anybody Find Meee…Somebody to Love

I like most of the books I read. No, actually, that’s not 100 % true. Looking at the evidence of my Read-shelf on Goodreads (and, well, knowing myself), I don’t just simply like these lovely things I choose to place before my eyes for hours. I REALLY like them. The thing is, though…..a part of me … Continue reading

Five Favourites of the Month: June

Five Favourites of May: 5. Walking on Sunshine Admittedly, this movie isn’t the best in the world. Actually, in some ways….it kind of sucked. BUT, since I watched it for free at the cinema with one of my best friends on a day that would have otherwise been really bad, it was just a fun … Continue reading
