Liebster Award II

I was tagged for another Liebster Award by Bex from Film Music Central. I did one of these quite a while ago and I’ve seen them around very often. You basically get some question that you have to answer as best as you can.


What is your favourite animated Disney film?
I think it’ll have to be The Lion King. It’s a great movie and I recently saw the musical adaptation in London and it was just amazing. Now to be honest, it has been a while since I’ve last seen a Disney animated film. I should really watch those more often because there are a lot of them that I still haven’t seen yet and I’ve forgotten a lot about the ones that I did see.

Which Star Wars film is the best?
I’m going to have to say the latest one, Star Wars: the Force Awakens. I saw all of the movies this year for the first time and the last one blew my mind and surpassed, for me personally, the older ones. Probably because the visual effects have improved immensely since the first one was released.

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.

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.

Get To Know Me | Tag

Since my blog is still rather new, I thought this tag might be interesting for some of you. I wasn’t really tagged by anyone, but I thought I’d do this anyway. Here are a couple of questions about me, so you can get to know me a bit better. Aside from what I said already on the about page.

How many siblings do you have? I have one older sister.

What is your middle name? My middle name is Lydia, which is the name of my grandmother and I’m very proud of it.

What was your favourite subject at school? I’m still studying, so right now I would have to say Graphic Design. Though next semester that will probably change.

What is your favourite drink? I am addicted to Coca Cola.

What is your favourite song at the moment? Way Down We Go by Kaleo. If you don’t know it, you should definitely listen to it. It’s great.

A Game of Thrones | Book Review

A Game of Thrones

Goodreads | Book Depository (Affiliate)

There are probably a lot of reviews about this book, but I still wanted to do one since I loved it and hated it at the same time. Sure it’s a great and epic read with great characters and unexpected events, but it did have it’s flaws. 

When you get into this book, you’re introduced to a whole new world. For the most part it’s comparable to our own world, but it has it’s differences. At first it may be kind of difficult to keep all the various families or houses apart from each other (you can consult the index at the end of the book, but I found that a bit tedious to do) and the fact that the names in this book aren’t really normal doesn’t help either. Eventually it gets easier to recognise each different character and it’s more simple to follow the different storylines. Due to the rather large amount of different storylines to follow, George R.R. Martin has divided the chapters by character. This means that in one chapter we’re following a certain character and in the next chapter it changes to another character. (Just so you know, it changes between 8 different characters) I think that’s a good way to keep things interested, but when you’re just occasionally reading a few chapters at a time it can get quite confusing. You do get to know the motivation every character has for a certain thing they do and you get to experience some events through the eyes of multiple characters and get different sides of the story.
