I Messed Up | Tag

I was tagged by Sara from Freadomlibrary to do the I Messed Up Tag. You basically just look at things you did wrong with books or isn’t really something you should do. That’s a vague description, I know, but you’ll get what I mean when you have read the post.


A CHARACTER’S APPEARANCE THAT YOU MISREAD OR IMAGINED DIFFERENTLY
When I saw the trailer for The Girl on the Train, I felt like I imagined a lot of it differently. Some of the characters don’t look the same as they did in my head and that’s actually kind of weird, because I already knew the casting before reading this book. Emily Blunt was exactly who I pictured as Rachel, but Megan and Anna are definitely not what I had in mind.

A CHARACTER NAME THAT YOU’VE BEEN PRONOUNCING WRONG
Just pick any character from Game of Thrones. Sure, some of them are now easier to pronounce thanks to the television series, but some other still seem like they’re just some letters thrown together.

School Books | Tag

As exams are getting closer and closer, my level of freaking out is getting higher and higher. Therefore I thought I’d do The School Book Tag, which was created by Chloe Lauren from Diary of a Lonely Girl. She’s also the one that tagged me (some time ago) and I’m more than happy to finally do this one.

  • Mention the creator of the tag
  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Answer the following with the book that most fits the statement.
  • Nominate 3 others to do the tag.

MathsA book that has two characters that equal perfection
I’m not sure if this means that it has to be a couple, but Ì’ll keep it safe in saying The Fault in Our Stars. Whilst many may say that these characters are far from perfect, some may consider these as perfect in their own way.Maths

Life in Books | Tag

In this tag you’ll find some information about my life that corresponds with a book in some kind of way. I was tagged by Nick from The Paper Dragon, he’s also from Belgium and you should totally go check his blog.
I don’t own all of the books below, but I’m including a link to Goodreads if you want to know more about them.


Count your age along your bookshelf. Which book is it?
By starting from the left on my main shelf, it’s certain that this is going to be a comic, but I think that will do just fine. The 18th book, or comic in this case, on my shelf is Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2: Angela which is written by Brian Michael Bendis.

Pick a book that represents a destination you would love to travel to?
I’m not being very imaginative with this one, as there are a lot of great fantasy worlds in books, but I’m going to pick Saints of New York by RJ Ellory for this one. New York has always been a place that I wanted to travel to since as long as I can remember. I started reading this book a long time ago, but for some reason I didn’t finish it.

This or That | Tag

It’s time for another tag. In this one I get served ten dilemma’s, all associated with books, where I have to pick the choice that applies most to my own situation and behaviour.
I was tagged by Jillian from Rant and Rave About Books.


  1. Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks).
  2. Thank the blogger who tagged you!
  3. Choose one of the options—you don’t have to explain the reason for your choice, but you can admit to it, if you want to.
  4. To spread the love, tag 10 other people to do this tag.

#1   Reading on the couch or on the bed?
Definitely on the bed. I spend most of my time in my own room and I don’t have a couch there so.

#2   Male main character or female main character?
This doesn’t really matter for me as long as the characters are interesting.

#3   Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?
I don’t usually eat while I’m reading, but if I do have to pick one I’ll say sweet snacks.

Emoji Book | Tag

I am doing another tag and this time it’s the Emoji Book Tag. The point of this tag is to look at your five most recent or favourite emojis and associate a book with them.
I was tagged by Aldana from perfectioninbooks.
I am using some of my most used and perhaps favourite emojis. I tried to use some unconventional emojis and give a slightly different meaning to them, just to keep it interesting and original. It wasn’t that easy since I haven’t read many books yet, but I managed to find five of them who fit these emojis.


Emoji BooksLife of Pi by Yann Martel
I can hear you think that the books emoji is a rather obvious choice, but I associate that with school and I use it more than the actual school emoji. I read Life of Pi last year for my English course at school. This is the book that got me into reading again after a pretty long reading slump. It was a great book and I am happy I read it. I had seen the beautiful movie, but the book had even more amazing things to offer so absolutely worth a mention.


Emoji Tears of JoyRocket Raccoon vol. 1: A Chasing Tale by Skottie Young
I’m pretty sure everyone uses this emoji once in a while. It’s a go-to one for me at least. I decided to choose a comic with this particular emoji, because I haven’t really read any funny books yet. Rocket Raccoon vol. 1 was able to make me laugh out loud quite a few times so this one clearly deserved to be linked with this one. In my previous post I did a review of this one where I elaborate more on why I liked this so much. (Go read it here)
