Three things about myself you didn’t ask

I love watching old tv shows I used to watch years ago. My current obsession is Dawson’s Creek and The OC. I know. #noshame


I have a weird obsession with travelling guides and maps – I kind of collect them and I NEED to have a map whenever I go on trips. Walking on the streets is great, but getting lost is not for me.

I’m currently running out of shelf space….and out of space in my room for all the books I have. Yet I keep on buying new ones. Send help. Or a bigger room.

Five questions about books, reading and myself

  • What’s one pet-peeve you have that you cannot handle above all others?

I don’t know if it’s considered as a pet peeve that I worry way too much and over think every single little thing ? But I really don’t like it ?

  • What’s your favorite Tv-show? Movie? Book?

My favorite TV Show is and will always be Friends. It will always be the show I quote on a daily basis and can watch and re-watch a thousand times without ever getting bored, or not laughing at these scenes I already know by heart.


For the favorite movie, I have to pick The 10th Kingdom, for me it’s always sort of a movie even if it’s more like a mini-series lasting 8 hours. It’s magical, it’s based on fairy tales, it’s crazy and I love it way too much.

And my favorite book, well no one will be surprised if my answer is John Green’s Looking for Alaska. Second favorite is I’ll Give You The Sun.

i'll give you the sun looking for alaska

  • What’s your main reading resolution for next year?

If we’re talking about Goodreads goal, I settled my goal to 60 books. Last year, I managed to read 69 so I am hopeful to do this right, but well…we never know, so fingers crossed! As long as I read books I love, I think I’ll consider myself lucky ?

I also want to branch out more of my usual genres and read more and more fantasy, more weird magical realism books, and more books with diverse characters and relationships. I already have a few on my TBR which I’m hoping to read soon.

  • What’s one hidden skill you have?

I thought about this for way too long before giving up. I guess I don’t have hidden skills ?

  • Funny Question: What’s one emoji that you use out of place or that no one else uses?

Hm, I kind of use the little Octopus a lot ? It looks cute, I think ?

  1. Every once in a while I am also in the mood for old TV shows and Dawson’s Creek and the OC are just both real classics. Do you sometimes find that one episode you’ve totally forgotten about, even though you feel like you know the others by heart? Because I love it when that happens!

  2. Oh, yeah, I can relate to being a huge worrier! I worry about every little thing, and it drives me crazy because I don’t WANT to, but it’s just a part of me! And, yes, I love Looking for Alaska. It’s still my favorite John Green book! ❤️

    And omg, thank you for nominating me! I can’t believe I keep getting nominated by bigger bloggers for all these great awards! ☺️ This looks like fun; I can’t wait to do it!

  3. I hardly watch TV shows, but I really like Miranda? I love Disney movies (though I also like to critique them). I also get annoyed with being slightly prone to worry over things that don’t matter. I really like the heart eyes emoji and the balloon emoji, but I don’t use them much. Also, I totally agree that you’re a unique blogger–you totally deserve this tag ❤

  4. Ohh, thanks so much for the nomination Marie, I can’t wait to get around to this one but I am a little behind on my tags so it may take me a while.
    I loved reading your answers, some of them could literally be my answers. I always worry and stress over every little thing as well. It’s something I’m trying to get over but it’s never that easy is it? Also yes to Friends, its an oldie but a goodie, and I think no matter how old it gets and no matter what episode I’m on I’ll always burst out laughing at some point or another.
    Great answers Marie, and thanks again for the tag! 😀 ❤

      1. They almost seem to build up while you’re not looking. I’m not sure how but I’m trying to make a conscious effort to get through them one by one!
        No I feel the same, I create worst case scenarios in my head and convince myself that’s what will actually happen. Just it is the way it is.
        That’s all right. 🙂 ❤

  5. Great answers Marie! I love tv show too & my favorite would probably be Grey’s Anatomy, How I Met Your Mother, Brooklyn Nine Nine, and some guilty pleasure k-drama hahaha 😛 also BIG YES to Looking for Alaska! I always think TFIOS was just okay but this one I love so much. Also, also, yes to I’ll Give You the Sun. We have more favorite books in common than I thought hahaha and thank you for the tag Marie! ❤

  6. Oh yes, now I’m so in the mood to rewatch The O.C. or Dawson’s Creek again! (Or as I used to call it on my head: “Pacey’s Pond” because I had a huge crush on Joshua Jackson 😉 ) I also so relate to overthinking everything… I read I’ll Give You The Sun last month and I absolutely ADORED it! Definitely an all-time favorite for me too. And I think my favorite emoji is the heart-eyes emoji as I use it the most 🙂

  7. First thing’s first – I love your new theme so much! I clicked on your blog and was like 😱😍. Second – thanks so much for the nomination, Marie!! I loved reading your answers for this. I enjoy watching old TV shows too and your mention of Dawson’s Creek has me wanting to go rewatch it. Maybe once I finish my Supernatural catch up lol. I’m so with you on running out of space for books. A bigger room is definitely what I need, more wall space for new shelves. And I love Friends, Looking For Alaska, and I ‘ll Give You The Sun! I can’t wait to answer your questions. 😁

    1. Aww thank you so, so much Melissa, I am so happy you like it! ❤ < 3
      Haha I am so glad I'm not the only one liking this show. Dawson's Creek always makes me so nostalgic, but I love it ❤
      Thank you so, so much, I can't wait to read your answers 🙂

  8. Thanks for the nomination my Sweechie! OMG Dawson’s Creek!! I used to watch that so so so long ago. You’re making me feel old on a Sunday morning, hahahahah!
    As for the hidden skill, I’d say being the awesome person you are is enough. I don’t believe a special skill makes you different or special in any way. I can’t touch my nose with my tongue or whatever, so what? :p

    1. You’re welcome! Hahaha, I used to watch it so long ago and well…it’s never too late to re-watch it, you know…? :p
      Awww my sweechie, you are way too sweet ❤ ❤


    1. Thank you so, so much Jeann! Haha I am so glad you can relate, I loved both of these shows way too much, it makes me all nostalgic to think about it ❤
