Favorite, anticipated books and other bookish and blogging questions answered

Are you sick of me answering questions about me, myself and I?

To be honest, I am honored to have been nominated so many times for book tags and awards, ever since I started blogging and… I have the hardest time keeping up with everything. Sometimes, questions are hard to answer, sometimes I am lazy and sometimes, well I do it anyway because these questions still are a lot of fun and I am hoping you are enjoying these kind of posts as much as I love reading them on other blogs.

Today, I want to thank the wonderfully amazing Marta @ The Cursed Books for her nomination for the Liebster Award, as well as Alienor @ Meet The Book World for her nomination to the Sunshine Blogger Award. These two are some of my recent favorite book bloggers and, if you don’t know them or their blog just yet, what the heck are you doing with your life?!

Alright, after this short introduction, I’m ready to answer some questions the best that I can, starting with Marta’s lovely (and hard) questions.

What are your top 5 favourite blogs?

Well, this is starting well…. how am I supposed to choose five blogs here? I want to quote everyone and spread the love for everyone here?!

  • Kat @ Life & Other Disasters is my anchor in this blogging adventure and a lot of the time, in life struggles as well. She has the BEST tv shows recommendations and amazing book recs as well.
  • Beth @ Reading Every Night is and will forever be one of my favorites, she has the best fantasy recommendations for me as well and I just love her and her blog so much.
  • Sophie @ Sophie’s Corner is also one of my recent favorites, I love her blog and chatting with her always about everything.

Obviously I will mention, not out of obligation or because of this nomination, but because I genuinely love these bloggers, too and want to give them a better shout out.

  • Marta @ The Cursed Books, is one of my favorites for sure and I love how we honestly can talk about everything and blogging struggles. Still remember when she started blogging and look at her now, such a rising star.
  • Alienor @ Meet The Book World, who I recently discovered and have been loving. Such a great blog, such amazing recommendations and overall I am looking forward to chatting more with her. She deserves all the love so check her out.

I am missing tons of amazing bloggers here and I apologize. I could talk about Hannah, Jackie, May, Swetlana, Ilsa, Ju, Sim, Fanna, Tiffany, Aimee, Caro,  and so on. Sorry if I forgot you here, I LOVE YOU ALL OKAY.

What is your ultimate otp/favourite couple? (you can choose just one)

JUST ONE? I can’t do it.

Okay. Maybe Ron and Hermione.

What are three characters that you relate to?

Eliza, Isla and Lara Jean, I’d say. All of them have little parts of me in them and I could relate to them a whole lot.

Which post are you most proud of writing?

Hm…. I think I am very proud of writing my latest post about my book blogging pressures, because I was scared to write it and put it online and ultimately, I’m glad I did.

Female characters that everyone dislikes, but you absolutely love?

I’m going to turn this around and mention one female character I actually dislike, because I couldn’t think about one I love that everyone hates, haha. I’m going to mention The DUFF, since I saw the movie adaptation quite recently and… if it was enjoyable and okay, well I remembered how much I didn’t like Bianca in the book haha.

What are some of your favourite tropes?

I HAVE A WEAKNESS FOR THE CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TROPE. I also love the enemies to lovers one.

If your shelves were endangered, what three books would you choose to save?

This is such a hard question, I wouldn’t know how to answer it, I LOVE ALL OF MY BOOKS they are my babies. I think, in the end, I’d save my special edition of Looking for Alaska, because… well, because, my signed copy of Lauren Oliver’s Ringer and probably I’ll Give You The Sun.

What are some of your most anticipated releases of this year?

There are so many releases I am anticipating, and my sister wrote about it at the very beginning of this year, actually, quoting some fabulous titles. As we’re already mid-March, I thought I’d mention a couple books I can’t WAIT to read that are coming soon.

What is your favourite adaptation? (can be either movie or tv show)

Hm, I think I’ll have to go with Harry Potter – it was a pretty faithful adaptation overall and I loved seeing the world come alive on the big screen. Obviously it was not perfect, but nothing can really be perfect when it comes to book-to-movies adaptations, so… I thought they did a decent job.

What are some of your favourite standalones?

What. You said some.

What is your biggest pet peeve in books?

Hm… I don’t know about my BIGGEST pet peeve… I tend to have low tolerance now when it comes to love-triangles and insta-love, though.

What are your thoughts about DNFing books?

I….don’t DNF books. I already mentioned it before, if you’re not new to my blog, you won’t be surprised by that answer. I buy about 99% of my books, so… I have commitment issues in here, meaning that I have and will finish these books, because I spent money on them and they might as well be finished here. Also, I want to believe that the end will maybe save up the whole thing? Eternal optimistic haha.

What’s your favorite novel with LGBTQIA+ romance?

…that’s all I can come up with right now. DO YOU HAVE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ME?

Do you read translated books?

Hm… that’s a strange question, ahah. Given that I am French and my mother language is French, I do read translated books in English and books in French, too? My skills in other languages suck, so I couldn’t read anything else, I think.

What’s your favorite diverse book?

Hm that’s such a hard question, I have been loving so many books lately… here are a couple books I loved. Again, if you have more recommendations, LET ME KNOW!

What’s the hardest thing about blogging for you?

Coming up with all the ideas? Keeping up with the book blogging community? Trying not to scream about blogging every day?

Hm. I wouldn’t even know where to start here, there are lots of struggles and things that make me feel, well, not that relaxed about blogging. I think, honestly, the hardest thing for me is that: the pressure that comes with blogging, one that you just don’t imagine when you first start out. I’m working on it, though.

What’s your all-time favorite novel and why?

Probably John Green’s Looking for Alaska, even if I am reading tons of amazing books now thanks to book blogging and it IS CRAZY TO ASK ME TO PICK A FAVORITE.

Where do you usually read?

As I am working full-time, I do most of my reading on the train (I have a 2 hours commute everyday) and during my lunch breaks. So when people try to talk to me during that time I’m just like…

What’s the review you’re the most proud of and why?

Hm that’s a great question?? I am never really proud of my reviews, I always have a hard time writing down my thoughts and I feel like I am rambling on and on. I liked the review I wrote about Eliza and her monsters lately, since I loved this book so much, but… no I’m not really proud of my reviews.

What’s your favorite movie adaptation of a novel (or a series)?

I’d still go with Harry Potter, so…. I’ll answer with my favorite movies from this series, here and mention The Goblet of Fire and The Deathly Hallows, Part II (insert ugly crying here).

Who is you all-time favorite character and why?

I.don’t.know.ahhhhhhhhh. This is so hard haha. Eliza, Lara Jean and Isla that I mentioned above are some of my favorite characters for sure, because I could relate to them a whole lot. I loved Starr from The Hate U Give as well, Camelia from The Belles was pretty amazing, too and…. how come, when you ask these questions, I can’t quote any character?! Am I weird?!

What do you think of my answers? Agree, disagree? What are some of YOUR anticipated releases, so I can add them to my endless TBR? And your favorite tropes? Book adaptations?

Do you have a hard time picking a favorite character as well? Let me know your thoughts in comments!

  3. Eeeep so honored to be one of your favorite bloggers. ❤ I also adore you and your gorgeous blog–thank you for your brutal honesty, and your amazingly thought-provoking discussion posts. ❤

    As for your answers… I'm seeing some of my most anticipated reads on your list, too! I can't wait to read The Astonishing Color of Us (the magical realism aspect sounds EPIC), Save the Date (MORGAN MATSON!), A Thousand Perfect Notes (Queen Cait!), etc. I also see some similar fave standalones: Amy & Rogers, The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, The Sky is Everywhere, and I'll Meet You There. OH AND SIMON VS, OF COURSE.

    I ADORE your reviews, though. You should totally feel proud about them. They're super thorough and cover everything I want to know. Rambling is great, too–it shows that you're passionate about what you're talking about. 😉

  5. I loved reading your answers for these tags Marie. 🙂 I was very pleased to see Jandy Nelson’s releases on your favourite standalones answer, and Amy and Rogers Epic Detour because wow is that an incredible book, definitely one of my favourite YA contemporaries as well. 😀
    I have a low tolerance (in fact I’d actually say I hate) love triangles and insta-love. They’re two of my ultimate peeves in books but I love the friends to lovers and enemies to lovers tropes too. The Hate U Give is amazing, and so is Simon Vs, are you excited for the movie to be released? (I’m assuming like in the UK it hasn’t been released in France yet either?)
    Again great answers for this tag, and great post as well. 🙂 ❤

    1. Oh thank you so much, Beth! 🙂 I’m so glad you agree about my pet peeves – and yes, friends to lovers always have to be my favorite bookish trope, it just never fails at giving me ALL THE FEELS, haha, I love it. ❤
      I can't wait to see Simon, vs. ! I have to wait until late June to see it in France though, it's not releasing before then 😦 IT seems so, so far away, especially knowing SO many people have seen it already haha. When does it release in the UK? I hope you'll see it before I do? haha 🙂

      1. That’s all right! 🙂 ❤
        There's something kind of comforting about those tropes isn't there. I dunno either way I can't get enough of them.
        Oh god I thought having to wait until April was bad knowing everyone in the US had already seen it. Well hopefully it will prove worth the wait I guess when it's finally released (in the UK it's April 6th, so not too much longer now).

  7. Marie you should totally be proud of your reviews! I love how honest you are in them, and when you like a book, it clearly shines through your writing 😊 Your reviews have gotten me to read Far From the Tree (now one of my favs) and now put a hold on Eliza & Her Monsters @ my library, btw! And haha, I can totally relate to your answer for where you usually read… of course I don’t work full-time because I’m a full-time student, but I do most of my reading in between classes as I’m waiting for my class to start. I love talking to my peers, but when someone interrupts me just for small talk & to ask “What book are you reading?” when they CLEARLY DON’T CARE… le sigh. 😅 I enjoyed reading your post!

  8. First, let me just say that your gifs are amazing! The Ted one from HIMYM had me chuckling, it was so appropriate.
    Also, every time I read your blog I remember how similar a book taste we have. I have always counted Lara Jean as one of the characters I relate the most to as well. I still haven’t read Eliza (I feel like I am always saying that) but I will soon I promise! And I LOVE Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, the Summer of Chasing Mermaids, I’ll Give You the Sun, and Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between. I am SO excited for Save the Date because Morgan Matson is one of my favorite authors and I am yet to dislike one of her books.
    Hm, I’m trying to think of some diverse book recommendations for you. I haven’t read this yet but I heard Love, Hate, and other Filters is good? Also I am Thunder? And I am excited for You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone.

    1. Aww thank you, so glad you enjoyed these – I’m not going to share how long it took me to find the right GIFS. It always takes way too long 😂

      Aw this makes me SO happy – I love that we have such similar taste in books! Here’s to hoping that you will love Eliza as well, it was such a wonderful and really relatable book for me. ❤ AND YES, Morgan Matson is such an amazing author, she's one of my favorites as well and I loved everything she has written so far. Can't wait to read that one 😀

      Oh thank you so much for the recommendations! I heard amazing things about Love, Hate and Other Filters as well and You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone is on my TBR already, I can't WAIT for that one. I'll have to check out I am Thunder 😀

  9. I’m also super excited for Final Draft! I loved Riley Redgate’s first book and am super embarrassed to not have read Noteworthy yet. This Is How It Happened was another favorite for me, which really surprised me because I was not expecting a lot from it because I am not a huge fan of car crash books.

  10. Gosh I love HP movie adaptation too, it’s definitely the best movie adaptation. There are flaws sure, but they are pretty minor compared to the whole magical feelings it had. I cried when the WB logo appeared at the beginning of Deathly Hallows part 2 because I thought the magic is finally over, and then I cried even more when I hear Hedwig’s theme on the first Fantastic Beasts trailer :’)

    1. Oh I get it – I didn’t cry when I saw the WB logo for the last time in that last movie, but I get the chills every single time I hear the soundtrack for the Harry Potter movies, every. single. time. I think that will never go away haha 🙂

Paper Towns / An Abundance of Katherines are certainly the least sad of them all haha 🙂

I’m so happy to see all the Harry Potter appreciation in this post! 😉 I can’t do a tag post without talking about Harry Potter at least once, either.

    I am also a big fan of the Harry Potter movie adaptations. I actually watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone first, which was what piqued my interest in the books in the first place. The movie soundtrack is so amazing and I thought that the cast was very fitting. When I read the books, I always imagined the characters to look like their counterparts in the movies haha 🙂
    I don't tend to DNF books.. technically. When I really can't bring myself to finish a book, I tend to set it aside for later, whether it is in a few weeks, months or even years haha :')

      1. Hmmmm… to be honest I feel like I have such a different relationship to the books and movies than other readers? I read the books while picturing the whole movies in my head, since I waited until ALL the movies were released to finally read the series. I also was in my late teens when I first read the books, then. I think I would have fallen head over heels with them if I read them first. I found them brilliant for sure, but… my love is always influenced by the movies 😂

  19. I’d wish I was as sweet/bubbly as Lara Jean, but I’m a caffeinated, grumpy puppy. 🙃

    Childhood friendships are the best! I think my all-time favourite trope is fake dating. It must be why I love so much To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. 💜 Also, love triangles are the worst. Urgh.

    I have commitment issues myself. I’d rather die of boredom. I always read an excerpt before buying my books, though. I have a vague idea in what I’m getting myself into like that.

    I keep saying to never ask bookworms to choose their favourite /anything/, they will burst out in sparkles.

    Btw, I bought a copy of your Eliza and Her Monsters because of your review, so it must be a good review! 😊

  20. Lovely post Marie, as always 🙂 Thank you for introducing me to Alienor. I just checked her blog and it is amazing 😀 Aww thank you for including me. You are so sweet 🙂

    As I have said earlier too.. many times.. I think we are soul sisters 😀 We have so many things in common. I love those tropes too.. CHildhood friendships and loves are best (I recently read Starfish with this trope). And enemy turned lover (To Kill a Kingdom). And yes I hate insta-love (though The Sun is Also a Star is an exception) and love triangles 😀

    I am yet to read all the three books that you mentioned with your favourite characters. In fact, I have to read all the books that you have mentioned in this post 😀 Yeah, I am pretty behind.

    Thanks you for including Simon. Isn’t he the cutest? Haha, I loved that GIF of Blair from Gossip Girl. I recently started watching this series and have completed the first season. I am quite enjoying it 🙂

    QUEENS OF GEEK 💖💖💖I can definitely recommend How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake, it has a f/f romance and a bisexual main character!

You’re such an inspiration, Marie, with all the amazing posts and beautiful blog, and it’s truly great to see myself among others 😀 I can totally relate with reading on the way to office because I used to travel everyday for two hours during my entire schooling, haha. So I can understand how important it is to make it evident enough to others that we are off limits in terms of talking XD And wow, I love the hat-to-love trope so much! And yeah, insta love is so unimaginable; it’s annoying. Also, nothing can beat Harry Potter when it comes to the movie adaptation because it was all so magical ❤

  23. I get tagged in a lot of posts too and I have to admit I rarely keep up with them all anymore. But yay for answering these questions! Sometimes the pressures which come with blogging can be quite intense to try and keep up with, so I definitely understand what you mean there. Oh, and I loved and could relate to Isla’s character too. I also think that it is epic that you have such a long commute because READING TIME!
