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.

In my most recent post I announced that I would be doing a Q&A and here you can find my answers. I liked all of these questions and how diverse they are. Let’s get right to them.
What is your favourite thing about blogging? – Aldana, Perfection in Books
I can’t possibly pick just only one thing. I really like the community, you immediately feel welcome and that’s a great feeling. I also like that I can write about everything that I’m passionate about and get response from people that are equally as excited about these things.
What book would you recommend to us? – Jerrod, It’s Jerrod
I can’t recommend The Martian by Andy Weir enough, but to say something else for a change I’d say The Anniversary Man by R.J. Ellory. I read it some time ago, but I really liked it.
If you could spend the day with any fictional character, who would you spend it with and where would you go? – Emma, Emma The Book Lover
Piscine Patel from Life of Pi. I feel like he could use the company and that he would have some interesting stories to tell. This book was such a joy to read and he was a really great character.

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.

When watching Guardians of the Galaxy, I had only read one of the comics. So afterwards, I wanted to submerge myself a bit more in these characters and their stories. Rocket Raccoon is a great standalone comic series that heavily relies on it’s art and wit.
Skottie Young wrote and pencilled this series and he did an amazing job with it. He is known for his ‘Little Marvel’ variant covers, which are always funny and cute and even had their own series. Now he is creating a series called I Hate Fairyland for Image and he is continuing on Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
The art is bright and colourful and fits well with the story and the overall feel of this series. From issue #5 and on, Jake Parker takes over the illustration part from Young. Parker does a good job in maintaining Young’s art style.
I seriously cracked up when Rocket shot something and when it blew up the phrase Nailed It was written over the blast. It’s these little things that make this series unique.
