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.
- 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 ?
