the book blogger test tag

it’s weeeeekend!!! yay!!! at this moment i will probably taking a nap, or reading in my bed or whatever! but i will definitely be relaxing the hell out of this weekend. i need that! but first, let’s do this tag, because it’s such a cool tag and i love that my wonderful girl naty over @naty’s bookshelf tagged me in this!!! naty is just awesome! she’s so kind and great, there is nothing more to say. so of course you need to check out her blog! ❤

 

tags

the rules:

  • thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog
  • answer the ten questions asked on this post
  • nominate at least five people to do it also

 

1.) top 3 book pet hates

  • i really don’t like mass market paperbacks. i would always prefer a different edition than the mass market paperback. and it makes me mad, that these editions are the cheapest. (only exception: the “outlander” series by diana gabaldon)
  • the font. there is one font that i hate. i just can’t read it well. in a bookstore i always look for it, and if the book has that font, i don’t buy the book. and if you want to know which one it is, the uk paperback edition of “a darker shade of magic” by v.e. schwab has that font. that’s why i never bought those books. i paid a lot of money to have the us hardcovers, which are way prettier in my opinion. but yeah, as you can see, i won’t buy a book with that font 😀
  • i am not the biggest fan of people on the cover. i don’t know what it’s about books with people on the cover, but i always prefer other covers. and don’t kill me, but i love the “tower of dawn” cover so much more than the other covers, with the person on the front. yepp, unpopular opinion here 😀

 

2.) perfect reading spot

that is soooo easy. my bed. always my bed. i got a new bed at the beginning of this year and i just can’t get out of it! i even put my bookshelves in my living room, so that i would read on the couch and get out of the bedroom, but no way, it didn’t work. i am basically just in the living room, when i want to get to the balcony or grab some books. and that’s a pity, because my living room is huge and cute but it doesn’t have my bed… 😀

 

3.) three book confessions

  • i crack the spine, i write in the books, i dog ear pages, i mark, i tab, i do all those things to my books. sue me!
  • my goodreads isn’t updated, because i am scared to see, how huge my physical tbr is 😀
  • STILL HAVEN’T READ “HARRY POTTER”

 

4.) last time you cried reading a book

wordsindeepblue

although tears came during “autoboyography” by christina lauren, “words in deep blue” by cath crowley was the last book where the tears were streaming down my face!!! like big time!

 

5.) number of books on your bedside table

nyxia WARANDPEACE

just two ha! but i won’t talk about the books on my shelf further away from my bed 😀

 

6.) favorite reading snack

chips, chips and always chips! forever and ever and ever! 😀

 

7.) three books you’d recommend to anyone

janeeyrepurple martian AManCalledOve

i specifically didn’t pick any young adult books. why? i even don’t know myself hahaha. as for a classic, i would always recommend “jane eyre” by charlotte bronte. i love it. as for a sci-fi i will always be going with “the martian” by andy weir, because that book is sooooooo amazing and funny and it has mark watney. ❤ and as for contemporary fiction, i will go with “a man called ove” by fredrik backman, because i love ove and this is such a beautiful story, that broke me. i cried like a baby and i felt all emotions. so beautiful!

 

8.) a picture of your favorite bookshelf

bookshelf

never pick a favorite child, right? 😀 😀 😀

 

9.) how much books mean to you (in three words)

books are everything!

 

10.) biggest reading secret

i still have a book on my shelf, that belongs to a person, i haven’t seen in over 12 years…

 

 

i tag:

 

i would also tag kathy from books & munches, but she’ll probably kill me, so i specifically won’t tag her! 😀

the music book tag

wohoooo, it’s friday!!! which means, the weekend is coming! ❤ i can’t wait! also, it’s friday 13th and i love the 13th. it’s my number. 😀 and to celebrate this wonderful day, i wanted to do another tag! i will be doing “the music book tag”, which combines two of my favorite things: music & books. yay!! thank you so much to the wonderful charlotte annelise for tagging me! if you don’t know her, please go check out her blog! she’s an awesome person and deserves all the love! 🙂

the rules:

  • link back to me as bookchanted, as the creator of the tag. i want to read your answers y’all!!
  • you can use the graphics if you want
  • tag at least four other people!
  • HAVE FUN!!!!

 

1.) ed sheeran: an adorable book that left you feeling warm and fuzzy

thesunisalsoastar

i could probably list so many ya contemporaries here, but i am going with “the sun is also a star” by nicola yoon! i loved this book. it was such a cute story with wonderful characters and it made me happy while reading it.

 

2.) taylor swift: a book with way too much drama to keep track of

thousandthfloor

if you want drama in the style of “gossip girl”, then please read “the thousandth floor” by katharine mcgee. this book is a guilty pleasure for me, because i enjoyed the drama so much! 😀

 

3.) zayn malik: the broody, mysterious character you totally fell for

sixofcrows

no surprise here, right? you all know, that i love kaz from “six of crows” by leigh bardugo with all of my heart! ❤

 

4.) jelena: a ship you really wanted but it never sailed

i honestly have no answer for that. i am shocked myself!! :O

 

5.) fall out boy: a series that just keep getting better and better

Nevernight

i know, that “the nevernight chronicle” by jay kristoff isn’t done yet! but, i am pretty sure, that mr. kristoff won’t disappoint! i loved “nevernight”. but “godsgrave” was better. and now there is just one more thing to top that. the ending! give it to me please!!!!!!!

 

6.) halsey/demi lovato: a badass female character you really admire

alongwaytoasmallangryplanet

you all know, that i wasn’t the biggest fan of “the long way to a small angry planet” by becky chambers. but i was a huge fan of kizzy! that character is phenomenal! she is smart and strong and has amazing skills. and most of all she is funny and made me laugh so much! i love that girl!

 

7.) one direction: the romantic, cheesy book you couldn’t help but love

toalltheboys

i really enjoyed the “to all the boys i’ve loved before” series by jenny han. it was fun, it was cheesy, it was romantic, it was just so cute! 🙂

 

8.) adele: a book that delivers a really powerful message

thirteen

i was pretty shook after reading “thirteen reasons why” by jay asher. even more after watching the series on netflix. it’s a powerful book/series. you never know what your actions are going to do to other people. you never know, how you affect them and you never know what the consequences can be!

 

9.) miley cyrus: a book/series that exceeded your expectations

janeeyrepurple

i am going with a classic here. i did hear a few things about “jane eyre” by charlotte bronte before going into this book. but i also knew, that it was a classic and i was kind of scared of it, because it is huge. what i didn’t expect, is, that i would love this book so much! i love the story, i enjoyed reading it and i flew through it!! it’s an amazing book and i am so happy, that i read it, because it’s my favorite classic so far! 🙂

 

10.) katy perry: a book/series that didn’t live up to the hype

eleanorpark

first of all, i love rainbow rowell. i love her books and her stories. that’s why i was so eager to read “eleanor & park”, because this was everyone’s favorite book by her. but no, i just have to say know. i had trouble while reading this book, because i couldn’t connect with eleanor at all. i don’t know what it was, but this book was just not for me!

 

 

i tag:

hocus pocus book tag

i realized, that i haven’t done a tag in quite some time now. so it’s perfect, that the wonderful katie over @never not reading tagged me in the hocus pocus book tag. she created the tag herself and i am sure, i will have a lot of fun with it! i love the movie so much! thank you katie for tagging me. ❤ if you don’t know her blog, please go and check it out, because katie is awesome! 🙂

tags

 

1.) the sanderson sisters

giphy (13)

a great trilogy:

darkershade

well, it shouldn’t be surprising, that i choose the “shades of magic” trilogy by v.e. schwab. i have talked about my love for these books and especially for kell a lot on my blog. but i do not regret it. it’s an amazing series!

 

2.) winifred sanderson

giphy (14)

a book with a truly evil female villain:

alice

huh, turns out, i haven’t read a lot of books with female villains. but the queen of hearts from “alice’s adventures in wonderland” by lewis caroll counts, right?

 

3.) sarah sanderson

giphy

a book that uncannily attracts children:

pippilongstocking

i am going with germany here, because i know, that all books by astrid lindgren are still very popular in this country. i myself loved all her stories and i loved the tv series even more. pippi longstocking is my favorite, which probably explains, why my cat is named after her 😀

 

4.) mary sanderson

giphy (3)

a book that is just plain silly:

hitchhiker

i’m going with silly as in funny here and not with silly as in stupid here. 😀 just to clarify. a book that was so funny and made me laugh so much was “the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy” by douglas adams. i love that book and especially the little depressed robot marvin. 😀 ❤

 

5.) max

giphy (6)

a book that is trying really hard to be cool, but doesn’t always succeed:

becauseyoulovetohateme

i have to go with this anthology here! “because you love to hate me” had a great concept. booktubers paired with authors to make them write a story about villains. all in all it sounds pretty cool. for me, a frequent booktube watcher, i was really looking forward to it! but i was disappointed, because there were just a few stories that could convince me and the rest was just meh.

 

6.) dani

giphy (2)

a book that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is:

autoboyography

i have to go with my recent read “autoboyography” by christina lauren. this book felt so honest to me, because it portrayed the feelings of the protagonists so well. i was really feeling their feelings and it just was so believable how shitty both their lives were regarding their situation. i will always be greatful for this book!

 

7.) binx

767de677bbeda701895bf25ece289cd4

a book series that just won’t die:

i don’t have an answer for this, because i haven’t read that many long series yet, to say this.

 

8.) ice

giphy (5)

a book with a character that’s dumb as a rock:

thirteen

i have absolutely nothing more to say about bryce from “thirteen reasons why” by jay asher!

 

9.) the black flame candle

giphy (7)

a book or series you wish you could resurrect:

sixofcrows

is it too early to talk about this? 😀

 

10.) headless billy butcherson

giphy (4)

a book that’s not so bad as people make it out to be:

thefaultinourstars

i hear so many people talking trash about john green’s books and i need to defend them. they are not bad. you may not like them but they are absolutely not bad. they are written beautifully, have some of the most amazing quotes i have ever seen in books and they make you feel something. so please stop saying, that they are bad. maybe you do not like them, BUT THEY ARE NOT BAD!!! (i somehow needed to get this of my chest)

 

11.) winifred sanderson’s spell book

giphy (8)

a book with a mind of its own:

stationeleven

that’s definitely one of my recent reads – “station eleven” by emily st. john mandel. still don’t know, what this book is supposed to tell me… (sorry, guys)

 

12.) garry marshall

giphy (1)

a book with a cameo:

upsideof

this is the only book, that comes to mind. in “the upside of unrequited” by becky albertalli there appear some characters from her first book “simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda”. that was pretty cool! 🙂

 

 

that was the hocus pocus book tag! i hope you liked it! 🙂 i am tagging a few people, that were not on katies list, haha 😀

the pastry book tag

wohoooo, it’s thursday, which means, it’s almost weekend time! i am really looking forward to the weekend, because i will be book shopping with my best bookish friend on saturday! yay! i mean, it’s not that i don’t have enough books, but i love our book shopping tours! 🙂

so, since i am in a good mood, i will be doing another book tag, whooop whooop. i was tagged by the lovely michaela over @journey into books. if you don’t know her, she’s amazing, so go over to her blog. also, this tag made me hungry so i needed to do it hahaha 😀

pastrybooktag

 

1.) croissant – name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves

sixofcrows crookedkingdom

i’m going to go with the “six of crows” duology by leigh bardugo. i think there are very few people, who don’t like these books. including me. i love those characters and the heists and the action and KAZ! omg i love kaz so much! ❤ 😀

 

2.) macaroon – name a book that was hard to get through but was worth it at the end

redrising

that would be “red rising” by pierce brown for me. i really, really like this book. but i had my difficulties getting through it. first of all, the world was complicated and i felt like i was thrown into it and was expected to know everything. secondly, it was a slow read and i don’t know why. i just struggled. but i am glad, that i read it, because i love the characters and the action in this book is awesome! 🙂

 

3.) vol-au-vent – name a book that you thought would be amazing but fell flat

eleanorpark

i am a huge rainbow rowell fan. i love “fangirl”, “carry on”, “attachments” and “kindred spirits” by her. these are great books and i had so much fun reading them. so of course i thought, that “eleanor & park” would be great. but i was wrong. i struggled with this book because of eleanor. i couldn’t connect with her at all and i was so disappointed, that i didn’t enjoy the book as much as other people did.

 

4.) pain au chocolate – name a book that you thought would be one thing but turned out to be something else

illgiveyouthesun

sometimes it’s good to know what a book is about. i am a person, that doesn’t like synopsises that much, because they give too much away. so i mostly stay away from them or forget them immediately after reading them 😀 and this was the case with “i’ll give you the sun” by jandy nelson. i knew, that everyone loved this book and i thought that it is a fluffy, cute and light contemporary. oh boy was i wrong. this book was deep and dealed with some serious stuff. i didn’t expect that at all.

 

5.) profiterole – name a book series that doesn’t get enough attention

Steelheart

definitely the reckoners series by brandon sanderson. i see it here and there sometimes, but there are very few people who talk about it. i read it after “the martian” by andy weir and i thought it was great. it has a funny main character, the plot is really cool and there are twists and turns. it’s a fun book. the first book “steelheart” is amazing. the series gets worse, but it is still fun to read and totally worth the time.

 

6.) croquembouche – name a book or series that is extremely complex

oneflewover

“one flew over the cuckoo’s nest” by ken kesey is just crazy. yes, it is! but it is good!!!

 

7.) napoleon – name a movie or tv series that you liked more than the book

thejaneaustenbookclub.jpg

definitely “the jane austen book club” by karen joy fowler. i love that movie so much. and when i read the book last year, i was kind of disappointed. it was different than the movie, which i have seen before reading, the narration was not what i expected and all in all, i wasn’t the biggest fan.

 

8.) empanada – name a book that was bittersweet

theybothdieattheend

i will go with my most recent bittersweet read and that was “they both die at the end” by adam silvera. this book will make you cry, but it is also a book full of hope and about living your life to the fullest 🙂

 

9.) kolompeh – name a book or series that takes place somewhere other than your home country

IMG_0904

well pretty much every book i read takes place somewhere other than my home country which is german. so it’s not possible for me to choose one, that’s why i am going with some of my contemporaries 🙂

 

10.) pate a choux – name one food from a book or series that you would like to try

toalltheboys1

all of lara jean’s cookies! give them to me! 😀

whoop whoop, that’s it guys. i hope you liked this tag and my answers and i am tagging EVERYONE who is hungry right now! 😀

the end of the year book tag

it’s friday my friends and i think it’s time i do another book tag! do you agree? of course you do! 😀 i saw this tag on ariel bissetts booktube channel and since the weather sucks and it’s cold, i figured this tag is perfect. so let’s just get to it:

 

tags

 

1.) are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

Dragonfly in Amber - Diana Gabaldon littlewomen

i started “dragonfly in amber” by diana gabaldon, when i was in cuba in march this year! yes, it’s been a long time. and i just got stuck and didn’t continue. i really want to though and it was on my tbr for #sequelseptember, but i don’t think it will happen this month… life guys, life. but i really would like to finish it this year, just to continue with the series.
“little women” by louisa may alcott was another book i started earlier this year. my problem with this one was, that i read many classics at that time and somehow got overwhelmed, that’s why i put it aside. but i really want to finish it, because i enjoyed it.

 

2.) do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

thefear goldenson

i am a big mood reader and every time i want to do a readathon or a challenge, i suck at it, because i never pick up the books, i want to read. i really don’t know what’s wrong with me haha 😀 maybe i just can’t handle the pressure. but i figured that these two books fit into the autumn time too, since they won’t be happening in #sequelseptember.
“the fear” by charlie higson is the third book in the series and i really wanted to finish the series this year. i am sure it won’t happen, but maybe i’ll get to this one.
“golden son” by pierce brown is the second book in the series and since “red rising” was kind of dark, i think “golden son” will be a good read for the fall. and since autumn colors are kind of golden, this fits perfectly. 😀

 

3.) is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

turtlesallthewaydown

there are many releases i am still waiting for, but “turtles all the way down” by john green is by far the one, i am most excited about. i am trying not to get my hopes up to high for it, but i guess that won’t be possible. i just want this book in my hands!!!

 

4.) what are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

emma biglittlelies historyisallyouleftme

i started my “one austen a month” project this year and i was very good at it. until “emma”. somehow i never got around to picking it up. i think my “war & peace” read is getting in the way. but i definitely want to read “emma” this year, because i want to say, that i read all of jane austens novels in 2017. 😀
“big little lies” by liane moriarty is another book i really want to read this year. i saw the first episode of the show and i loved it. i decided to read the book first, before continuing with the show, but somehow that never happened. but it needs to. i am so excited for this one!
and last but not least, i really want to read “history is all you left me” by adam silvera. i’ve been meaning to read this for such a long time. and since i came back with a signed copy from the us back in july, it’s been sitting on my shelf and starring at me. i am bad, i know!

 

5.) is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favourite book of the year?

godsgrave turtlesallthewaydown

i don’t want to repeat myself, but if “turtles all the way down” is good, it could maybe beat “kids of appetite” by david arnold or “a man called ove” by fredrik backman. these were definitely two of the best books i’ve read this year. but who knows? maybe it will be “godsgrave” by jay kristoff? i am still at the beginning of this, but i love it so far and i have a feeling, that it will blow my mind!

 

6.) have you already started making reading plans for 2018?

yes i did! i decided not to make so many plans, because it’s obvious, that i can’t stick to them hahaha 😀

 

 

that’s it. i hope you liked my answers! let me know your answers in the comments! 🙂

i am gonna tag some people, but if you want to do this tag, please do it! 🙂

200 follower & anything but books tag

hello lovely people! i am so happy right now, you have no idea! when i started this blog in june i had no idea where this was going. i thought i will write about the books i love or not love and just put down my thoughts. but the past months i met so many great people here in this community and i am sooooo thankful and happy about that. ❤ ❤ ❤

 

200_follower

 

yesterday i reached 200 hundred follower and i am over the moon! you guys have no idea, what this means to me and i am so happy about every like or comment on my blog! it’s so great to be part of such an amazing community and i really appreciate everyone hanging out on my blog! thank you, thank you, thank you! ❤ ❤ ❤

since this came a little out of nowhere, i had no time about thinking about a giveaway or anything. but there will be one, i just need to sort out my thoughts. so wait for that! 🙂

 

 

i want to celebrate with you and that’s why i will be doing the “anything but books tag”, so you guys can maybe get to know me a little better. i was tagged by the wonderful rebecca over at mylifeasasportsfangirl . thank you so much for the tag! it came at the exact right time. 🙂

feel free to leave a comment and let me know all that stuff about you! i really would love to know! without further ado, let’s get started:

 

1.) name a cartoon you love

ha, it starts out really great hahaha. 😀 i am not a big cartoon person and i have no idea, what i should write down for this one. maybe some cartoons i loved as a kid? alright, i loved to watch nickelodeon and they had these series “hey, arnold!“, “rugrats“, “rocko’s modern life” and “doug“. i watched those all the time as a kid and they were really cool!

 

2.) what is your favorite song right now?

well, surprising myself by saying this, it is not a coldplay or a mumford & sons song 😀 which is weird, if you know me. but the two songs, that are on repeat right now in my playlist are “sign of the time” by harry styles and “skin” by rag’n’bone man. don’t ask me why. i just love these songs at the moment! ❤

 

3.) what could you do for hours that isn’t reading?

well, since going through blogs is also reading at some point, i will choose watching booktube. i love booktube. i can get lost in all the videos and it’s a great way for me to come down and just relax. 🙂 also, playing and cuddling with my cats is on top of the list too. love my two kitties! ❤
do you have favorite booktubers? let me know!

 

4.) what’s something you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?

well, you guys all know that i love to travel. so i can’t choose that one. but there are many other things i would love to do. i’d love to learn playing the guitar. music is a big part of my life and i love singing (i can’t do it, but i love it). there is nothing better, than sitting around with your friends in the park or at the beach and someone is playing the guitar and everyone is singing and having a good time. it reminds me of my semester abroad where we did that almost every weekend. i love it and i would love to be able to play the guitar myself, so that i could play my favorite songs all the time.

 

5.) what is your favorite unnecessarily specific thing to learn about

since i studied computer science i have a big interest in media and technological stuff. i always try to learn new software programs or do some programming myself, if i have the time. this world fascinates me and i have a lot of fun working with photoshop as well. just to learn new tricks, that come in handy and then see, how graphics come together. unfortunately i don’t have a lot of time to do that stuff, because reading is my priority at the moment, but i always like to learn new skills if there is a little bit of time left.

 

6.) what’s something unusual you know how to do?

well, that is a weird question and i will give you a weird answer. i can put both of my thumbs behind the back of my hands. sounds weird and it is weird. in all of my 32 years, i have only met two other people who can do that too! 😀

 

7.) name something you made in the last year and show us if you can

nope! there is pretty much nothing. i am not really good with doing things myself. knitting, sewing, building stuff. nope. not my thing. i am the most impatient person on earth and i just don’t have the patience to do stuff myself. nope! the only thing i can really do, is rearrange existing stuff hahaha 😀

 

8.) what is your most recent personal project?

definitely this blog! i started with goodreads, then instagram, then booktube (not making videos myself) and then ended up with this blog, because i wanted a place to put down my thoughts and my book journal was just not enough. so i thought long and hard, if i want to do this and commit to this thing and i couldn’t be happier about it. i love my blog, i love all the people in the community and it’s just such a great time i am having! thank you guys, you are a very huge part of that! 🙂 ❤

 

9.) tell us something that you think about often?

my friends and family. now this may sound weird, but i live far away from my family. i live in berlin, which is in the northeast of germany. and my family lives in the southwest of germany. i see them two or three times a year, because it’s not possible to just go there over the weekend. of course we talk a lot on the phone, but it definitely isn’t like being with them all the time. so of course i think about them a lot. the same goes for my friends. i have a lot of good friends all over the world or germany. that’s because i am like eliza from “eliza and her monsters” – i am an online girl. most of my friends i met through online communities and the best friendships developed from that. it’s my thing i guess haha. but having so many good friends all over the world means keeping in touch, which isn’t always that easy, because of time zones or busy days. but thanks to the internet, a lot is possible and i always try to be updated all the time. but that also means, that i think about my lovelies very often.

 

10.) give us something that is your favorite, but make it oddly specific

i love EVERYTHING that has bright colors or to be more specific neon colors. i buy everything. clothes, shoes, pencils, notebooks, whatever. it needs to be colorful and i will buy it. plus, if it has flamingos, pineapples, palm trees, penguins, monkeys, unicorns on it, it’s mine. i really have a problem, because my closet doesn’t have space and i own things i don’t need or use. but i am an addict. if it has bright colors and shines, i need to have it!

 

11.) say the first thing that pops in your head

my trip to ireland in a month! ❤ i was just talking to my friend, who i’ll be visiting and it’s still on my mind. i need to make plans, which bookstores i am going to visit hahaha 😀

 

that’s it for now guys! i hope you like my answers! 🙂 let me know yours! i hereby tag everyone of my followers who wants to do this tag! have fun with it! 😀

thanks for sticking around here and i’m looking forward to many wonderful days with you in the future! 🙂 ❤

the unpopular opinions book tag

yay, it’s thursday, which means, time for a tag. well i could do a tag everyday, but that would be kinda boring, right? 😀 but today i am in the mood for it and since the wonderful charlotte annelise tagged me for the unpopular opinions book tag, i thought i give it a go. i wanted to do this tag for a while now and now i can, yay! (well i still could have just done it, but what can ya say, i love being tagged haha 😀 )

 

tags

 

1.) a popular book or book series that you didn’t like

upsideof  alongwaytoasmallangryplanet

ok, hear me out. it’s not that i didn’t like these books. i just didn’t enjoy them as much as other people did. the hype for these books was huge and i hoped, that i would love them as much as others did. but that wasn’t the case. i really liked how diverse “the upside of unrequited” by becky albertalli was. the cast of characters was amazing. my only problem was with molly. i couldn’t connect with her at all. i don’t know why. but she was annoying me and i really had my problems with her. that’s why i couldn’t enjoy this book that much.

as for “a long way to a small angry planet” by becky chambers, i really loved some of the characters. i mean, kizzy is like the best. but the story dragged for me. i had problems with the writing and i couldn’t really get into it. it took me a very long time to finish this book and i thought the ending was forced way too much. it just wasn’t for me and i was so sad, because i was really looking forward to it!

 

2.) a popular book or book series that everyone else seems to hate but you love

after.jpg

it seems as everyone hates the “after” series by anna todd. everywhere i look, people are so mad about it. and i get it. there is some unhealthy stuff in it. and it shouldn’t work, but for some reason it did for me. i read 2,5 books during one week on vacation, because i couldn’t put it down. and these books are huge! i was lost in that world and these characters kept me turning the pages. i flew through these huge books and i really enjoyed them.

 

3.) an otp that you don’t like

ifistay

nope, just nope! i really wasn’t a fan of mia and adam in “if i stay” and “where she went” by gayle forman. they didn’t click. i couldn’t feel it. unfortunately, because otherwise this series would have been much better for me. but i had problems with them and with the books itself. this just wasn’t for me.

 

4.) a popular book genre that you hardly reach for

historical fiction. i don’t know why, because most of the time i enjoy it, when i start a historical fiction. but i hardly reach for it. it’s hard for me, because i have so many other books i want to read before i pick up a historical fiction book. am i afraid i won’t like it? am i afraid it will bore me? i don’t know, don’t ask me 😀

 

5.) a popular/beloved character that you do not like

eleanorpark

eleanor. i didn’t like her. she ruined this book for me. i couldn’t connect with her. she annoyed me and it was just meh. i was soooo looking forward to this book and it didn’t work for me because of eleanor. i think this is the only rainbow rowell book, i wasn’t a big fan of.

 

6.) a popular author that you can’t seem to get into

that’s hard for me to answer, because there are popular authors, i haven’t read yet. i will do a separate post on that one soon. but so far i haven’t read any of their books so i can’t say if i can get into their books or not.

 

7.) a popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing

love triangles. and this goes for everything. movies, tv shows, books. i hate love triangles and the whole “who-is-the-right-one-for-who”? that annoys me so so so much. why can’t just two people be put together and then tell their story. and don’t go back and forth between all characters. ah, that makes me mad. just do it like they did it with nathan and hailey in “one tree hill”. first season, together, after 9 seasons, still together. nothing else. perfect couple. love it! i’ve read a lot of contemporary romances in the last year and i am so happy, that most of them focused on one OTP and not a love triangle. thank you so much for that! 😀

 

8.) a popular series that you have no interest in reading

vampireacademy darktower thelightningthief

i’m pretty sure, i will never read the “vampire academy” series by richelle mead. i am just not interested in it. also, “the dark tower” series by stephen king. there are just waaay too many books. and last but not least, i won’t read any series by rick riordan. i know, they are supposed to be really good. but i am just not interested in them.

 

9.) the saying goes “the book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or tv show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?

brooklyn 13reasons

when it comes to movies, i really enjoyed the adaptation of “brooklyn” by colm tóibín. i liked the book but the movie had the better ending. i mean, it was the same ending, but the movie executed it way better than the book did!

as for tv show adaptations, i have to say “thirteen reasons why” by jay asher. i really liked the netflix series, because it somehow gave me so much more the story. and through visualizing it, i was way more emotionally involved.

 

 

that’s it guys. these were my answers. please let me know, which answers you would pick for the questions! 🙂
