Hello and Happy Valentines Day everyone ❤




Picture by Georgia de Lotz

I've never had a boyfriend and never really celebrated Valentine's Day. But I've always liked to read a bit about romance or watching romantic movies on this special day. To show myself that you can still have some romance in life, even if you don't have someone to share it with. I wanted to do something a bit romantic on the blog too, therefore this book tag. Hope you enjoy!

Here are the questions:

1. First Book Crush

Harry Potter. 11 years old me had a big crush on him. 

2. What book would you want as your Valentine?



I love Simon vs the homo sapiens agenda so much 💕💋

3. Candy Hearts or Chocolate?

Neither. I can not eat it because of the sugar. 

4. What book would you gift to your true love?




I love Harry Potter so much. Giving this took to someone I love will be like giving away a part of myself. 

5. Favorite Rom-com

I'm not very fond of romantic comedies, I'm more fond of an action comedy that has som…

Book talk/review: Simon vs the homo sapiens agenda by Becky Albertalli.

I want to say with all my heart that this is my favorite book, apart from Harry Potter. Read it back in 2015, then I listened to the audiobook this year. I have also bought the new edition of the book since I did not have the book in my book collection. Although I feel it would not have stopped me from buying the new edition. This is a book worth buying several times.This is a book that give me so many feelings. I love it so much!😍

The book is about sixteen-seventeen-year-old Simon Spier who has a big secret. He is gay and have not told anyone, except Blue; the boy he e-mails with. Blue is another boy who goes to the same school as him (they both have the same secret) and Simon does not know who he is. One day, Martin, the clown of the class, reads Simon's mail account by mistake. Simon is blackmailed to help Martin get a date with Abby, one of Simon's best friends.

With humor, emotions and charming personality, Simon is a character I feel deeply for. He is so sweet, funny and …

Wrap up January 2018.

The first month of 2018 is already over. I'm not the one who reads a lot, so I'm very happy with three books and a graphic novel. Have also listened to some audiobooks, but did not finish any of them during January. So they will be on my next wrap up. 


Favorite book:

The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdoms by Chris Colfer.

Have not written a book review on this book yet, but will write a review of the entire series when I finish it. The series is on six books, and this is the fourth. A very amazing fantasy series, written by the highly talented Chris Colfer.

Surprise of the month:

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren.

This is a book I had not heard so much about before I read it. It was so good, touching, sad and beautiful. Recommended everyone to read it! Review of the book comes soon.


Disappointment of the month:

Space Dumplins by Craig Thompson.

Unfortunately, it was not as good as I hoped it would be. I can be a little picky when it comes to graphic novels stories . It's not s…

My insane big library haul!

I love the local library.Especially if there are any books I want to read, but are a bit unsure if they are worth buying or  I can not afford to buy a book I want to read at the moment. I'm not sure if this applies to libraries throughout the entire country or in all countries, but where I live, you can borrow as much as you want. Yay!
