I felt like doing a tag. I have been so quite the last few weeks, better write something fun! So today we are going to the My Life in Books tag, because let’s be real, my life is just mainly books nowadays!
Pick a book for each of your initials.
Ok, so I only have 1 initial, so I’m gonna do it for all the letters in my name!
L: Little Women (obviously) by Louisa May Alcott
I: the Ice Palace by Tarjei Vesaas
S: Swimming in the Steno Pool by Lynn Peril
E: Evil Under the Sun by Agatha Christie
L: Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs
O: Only Dull People are Brilliant at Breakfast by Oscar Wilde
T: Thérèse Raquin by Émile Zola
T: Time Traveling with a Hamster by Ross Welford
E: Elephants can Remember by Agatha Christie
Count your age along your bookshelf, what is it?
Funnily enough, it’s the one book that sparked my love for Classics! Not a book for everyone, and I DO NOT recommend this one to be your first classic (it is DENSE y’all) but I love it so much, and Wilkie Collins is one of my favourite authors!
the Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
Pick a book set in your city/country.
There aren’t many books set in the Netherlands, so I’m going to recommend a book written by a Dutch author and set in the Netherlands, just so y’all get some inspiration to try out our authors!
Crusade in Jeans by Thea Beckman.
Thea Beckman is my absolute favourite children’s literature author! She wrote beautiful books, and even though Crusade in Jeans isn’t my favourite (it’s a historical time traveling book) I still recommend it to everyone who likes historical settings and wants to try out some Dutch authors!
Pick a book that represents a place you’d like to travel to.
Honestly, the only place I want to travel ( and go back to!) would be the UK! I miss living in the UK, so the only book I could say is:
Horrible Histories: England by Terry Deary
Pick a book that’s your favorite color.
Which book do you have fondest memories of?
All my editions of Little Women. I learned to read with that book, I still have my mum’s copy that she read as a child and I’m going to re-read it this autumn! It’s the only book I can re-read a billion times and never ever get bored!
Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?
I DNF books if I don’t like them or are too difficult for me. I think the most difficult would be:
Spoiler alert: I hated it! haha
Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?
I mean, are we surprised when I say: Johnathan Strange and mister Norrell? I’ve been saying I want to finish it for 2 years now…
That’s it for today! I hope you felt inspired to read some of the books I recommended, and skip the ones I hated! 😉
