Top 5 Wednesday: Most Disappointing Reads of 2018

Top 5 Wednesday: Most Disappointing Reads of 2018

It’s been AAAAAAGES since I last did a Top 5 Wednesday. But here I am and here we go! This is my Top 5 Most Disappointing Reads of 2018. The Power by Naomi Alderman (review) A case of hype-disappointment. I had heard amazing things about this book. Everyone seemed to be raving about it. It didn’t manage to convince me. I think I wanted more than what I got. People usually say this is a super feminist book. I didn’t…

Amy's Tea Book Tag

(Originally created by Amy from TheDustyBookShelf ) I found this Tag on Eunice’s blog NerdyTalksBookBlog and decided that, since it had been a while since the last time I did a BookTag, I should answer the questions myself. I do like a good cup of tea, so why not 🙂 1. Double Bergamot Earl Grey – A robust, deep, intellectual and flavourful book HHhH by Laurent Binet. This is an intellectual book. There is no way he could have delved deeper into…

To be Read Book TAG

To be Read Book TAG

Thank you to Erin (Reading with Wrin) for tagging me in her blogpost. I love books. I love reading them, browsing for them in shops and just looking at them on my shelf. Loving books can be dangerous.. Before you know it, you have a wall filled with books you are yet to read. I try to keep my TBR shelf under control but every now and then, I give in to the temptation and I buy all the pretty…

Book ♡ Tag

Book ♡ Tag

My husband and I have been together for almost eight years now. It’s wonderful and weird at the same time. Eight years seems so long and yet it feels like no time at all. We don’t really do Valentine. The past years, he was always working on Valentine’s day and I don’t like crowds so when all the restaurants are super busy, I’m pretty happy just staying at home. Next to my family, the thing I love most is books….

Blogmas Day 23: Popsugar Challenge Part 1

In January, I decided to do the Popsugar reading challenge and I thought I’d share how I did. There were 50 challenges. I did NOT read 50 books this year so I cheated and recycled some of my answers. You’ll notice soon enough. Here we go: Book with more than 500 pages: Clockwork Prince Classic Romance: Fail Book that became a movie: High-Rise Book published this year: Uprooted Book with a number in the title: Station Eleven Book written by an author younger than 30: Fail…

Blogmas Day 12: Tis The Season Tag

I think I’ve done this Tag before but hey! it’s that time of year again and I wanted to answer the questions again!! You can find the original video here. Thank you Regan for reminding me! Do you have a favourite Winter read? I rarely reread books but the other day I found myself thinking how great Bridget Jones’s Diary was. I wouldn’t necessarily reread the book, but I might watch the movie again. Because Colin Firth and Christmas sweaters……

Blogmas Day 7: How I Read Book Tag

Blogmas Day 7: How I Read Book Tag

Another day, another book tag. Apparently, the creator of this tag has been lost over time, which sucks because I’d like to give him/her the credit… If you know who created it, let me know so I can update this post. Let go! Questions: 1. How do you find out about new books to read? Booktube. I follow people who have a very similar taste in books as me so I’m rarely disappointed. Other than that, I look up bestseller…

My life update in pictures (summer 2015)

My life update in pictures (summer 2015)

This is what’s been going on the last two months. My husband is a sound technician so his summer is very busy. Marie and I try to go and see him as often as possible. So whenever there’s a show or festival near us and he has to work, we go and say hello. I think Marie likes the buttons.. or she’s decided that she wants to follow in her dad’s footsteps when she’s grown up. I participated in the…
