Nine Times I Thought The Movie/Show was Better than the Book

No, no, no let me finish! I agree that most of the time, the book is better than the movie. Often I like them equally because I know they’re two completely different things, but I will probably always prefer the book. If I’m completely honest, there is a small list of movies I thought were better than the book, and today I am going to anger all book lovers around the world and tell you exactly which movies I thought were better than the books they were based on. The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien Yeah, this is mostly due to the …

Tag: Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt

A couple of days ago, I found this Book Shelf Scavenger Hunt on Vivian’s Blog and decided to take it over from her. I love going through my bookshelf and finding books that fit a certain description, and I certainly enjoyed doing this scavenger hunt! I don’t know who originally created this tag, though, but if you do, please let me know! Find an author’s name or title with the letter Z in it For this one, I decided to go for the title, as I couldn’t think of an author whose name started with a Z that I owned a book of (technically, Markus Zusak would …

The Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

We’re halfway through the year, so it is time for the mid-year book freak out tag. I did this tag last year as well, and am probably going to continue this tradition for the upcoming years. Basically, it’s like the End of the Year Survey, but for the first six months only. I don’t know who originally created it, as I found it on Tumblr last time and this year I’ve got it from Quite the Novel Idea. Let’s do this. Best book you’ve read so far this year Honestly, this has got to go to the Rogue One novelization. It made me fall in …

The Birthday Book Tag

I was meant to post this last Thursday, which was coïncidentially Tag Thursday ánd my birthday. But I completely forgot to finish this tag, so it never got posted on Thursday. Anyway, here I am, the following Thursday with the Birthday Book Tag. I found this on Cornerfolds and decided I wanted to take it over! Count your birthday along your bookshelf, and then subtract your birth month. What book does it land on? I am terrible at Maths, so I had to actually look up what ‘subtract’ meant, and then I felt kind of dumb. Anyway, if I count along eighteen books and subtract five, …

(Book)Tag Thursday: Disney Princess Book Tag

A while back I was looking for some cool book tags when I came upon a couple ones. I put them all in my drafts and then completely forgot about them. Until now, obviously. So yeah, I have no idea where these tags came from or who originally created them (if you do know, please let me know), but I’m going to fill in the Disney Princess Book Tag! Snow White: Your favourite Classic Yeah, well honestly I don’t like classics. But if I had to pick one, I’d go for The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, which is possibly the only classic I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. Partly I guess because …

(Book) Tag Thursday: Never Have I Ever…

Most of you probably know this game from all the sleepover parties you’ve had when you were a kid. We in the Netherlands didn’t really have something like this, I believe, or I just never played it. But someone made a Never Have I Ever Book Tag, that I found on Nerdy Geeky Fanboy. Let’s do this. Never Have I Ever… Started a book but didn’t finish I have definitely done this! In fact, according to Goodreads there have been nine books I started but ended up DNF-ing halfway through. I do always try to get at least halfway through a book before I decide to DNF it, …
