The questions that are accompanying these tags and awards aren’t getting easier. I was nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award by Nick at The Paper Dragon. Go check out his blog and he’s also from Belgium so that’s great.

#1   How do you pick your next book to read?
I honestly just pick whatever I’m in the mood for, whether I want something fantasy or rather something comedic. It depends on how I’m feeling at the time of choosing. I tried setting up a TBR-jar once, but I found myself picking another paper if the one I got wasn’t really what I wanted.

#2   Which book or series do you consider a must-read?
For this one, I’m choosing a series that I haven’t read yet and I feel like I should be reading soon as it’s kind of obligatory. There’s all those fantasy-series like The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, but I’m going with basically all the books by Agatha Christie.

You Asked For It | Q&A

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.Life of Pi

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

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)
