Netflix Booktag

Hello Humans!

I found this Tag on youtube yesterday, and thought this combines two of my favorite things: Books and Netflix! This tag was as made for me!

(If you want to know more about the books I write about just klick the title of the book)

1. Recently Watched:The last book you finished reading.
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

2. Top Picks: A book/books that have been recommended to you based on book you have previously read.
– I read Tina Fey’s Bossypants  a year ago, and so my kindle recomended me Yes Please  by Amy Poehler, sadly it wasn’t really a hit for me.

3. Recently Added: The last book you bought
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green.

4. Popular on Netflix: Books that everyone knows about. (2 you’ve read and 2 you have read or have no interest in reading)
– The two I’ve read: The Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas and Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.
The two books I haven’t read is The A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas and the Divergent series by Veronica Roth (Well I have read the first book, but I gave up. I have some rather strong thoughts about this series…)

5. Comedies: A funny book
You Deserve a Drink By Mamrie Hart.

6. Dramas: A character who is a drama queen/king.

8. Watch it again: A book/book series that you want to re-read
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, I always want to reread the Twilight series whenever christmas comes around.

9. Documentories: A non-fiction book you’d recommend to everyone
– Now this one is hard! I almost never read non-fiction, however Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli is such a good book! And it’s being turned into a movie

– The Legend series by Marie Lu

11. New Releases: A book that just came out or will be coming out soon that you can’t wait to read.

NaNoWriMo Day 9

Hello Humans!

Since I last wrote my word count was 8,359 and now it’s 13,485!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wrote 5,126 words in one day, I cant believe it.

I can say a few things about my novel, it’s about this girl Sam who get’s raped, it follows her emotions and thoughts through this period in her life.
Sam and her two bestfriends are going to New York to attend College, she used to be very sure about her own future untill this happenes.

I don’t want to say too much, just because I want to protect my baby, but i can write a little bit about why i decited to write this story. It’s a very simple explanation, I just have too many friends who have been raped, but i havent read any realistc literature about it. Its always “Oh we need to go to the police, and BOM the bad person is in prison” but thats not realistic. Not in the real world of rape.

“First steps are always the hardest but until they are taken the notion of progress remains only a notion and not an achievement.”

NaNoWriMo Day 4

Hello Humans!

Wordcount: 6788

So I aborted the idea of the Read-a-Thon because I fell asleep, so that sucked. But I do plan to read a lot this weekend, there is a bug going around in my family atm, so me and my sister are sick. And you all know that reading when you’re sick is the best type of medicine. I’ll post my TBR later today.

NaNoWriMo is going pretty good so far! I mean I am currently on top of my game, and I found out something interesting about myself yestreday as I was writing, I can write 1,666 words in an  hour! Thats crazy, and the stuff i wrote wasn’t that bad even. I mean, it wan’t good, but what can you expect when you are supposed to write a novel in a month.

I really love NaNoWriMo, and I wish that more people knew about it! I live in Norway, and literally none of my friends know about it. Oh well 😦

NaNoWriMo day 3

Hello Humans!

Current wordcount: 5091

I’ve been watching a lot of 24 hour Read-a-Thon videos lately (I’ll link them down bellow), and with them comes a thirst of wanting to read a lot during 24 hours, however NaNoWriMo is here. If you don’t know what it is I’ll link t the official webside down bellow, but to make a long story short it’s a month where you write a novel, and th enovel must have 50,000 words or else you lose.

I’ve meet todays goal, but if I do a Read-a-Thon tomorrow I’ll fall bahind, unless I read write my but off now for like 2.5 hours or sleep for 2.5 hours. Oh the dilemma of it all! I think I might do a Read-a-Thon, and I am going to regret it, because once you fall behind: Gurl u fucked!

Oh well, I’ll try to write for an hour and then sleep. Wish me good luck!

Sooooo I’ve been gone, for a while, a long, long while and I’m sorry about that. Life has been a bit to much, so I had to take some time for myself. Now this blog isn’t that hard to manange, but adding this to all the other stuff I have/ had to do was just too much. So my last post was 1.14-17 so what has happened during the last 11 months?

  1. I’ve turned 18
  2. … read some good ass book
  3. … watched Game of Thrones (and I’m dead)
  4. … started my last year of high School
  5. … been to London
  6. … worked
  7. … danced
  8. … been in a musical #AddamsFamily
  9. … started working on another musical #LegallyBlonde
  10. … watched a lot of Booktube/ Youtube

So thats basically that, I hope you’ve had a good past 11 months 😉

Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events (Tv-Show)

Hello Humans (or should I say orphans)! I just binge watched A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix, and as a fan of the books man, oh man! I am in loooooove. I am 100% going to watch it again within the next 24 hours.

The series follows Violet, Claus and Sunny, one day their whole world turned upside down. Their parent’s perish in a terrieble fire (see what I did there?), and they find themself in the care of Count Olaf. Their closest living relative.

That is really all that I can say about this series. The story is such an amazing one, and you dont have to have read the books too enjoy this show. It’s fitting for every age group. Neil P. Harris (from how I met your mother) is playing Count Olaf, while being the Producer of the show. The series has the prefect sprinkle of NPH humor, and it makes it perfect. I am going to give it a perfect score, but there is one ting that is missing. I am not afraid of Olaf, or at least not in the way I was when I read the books.
Rating: 6/6

Emoji Book Tag

Hello Humans! So this is the Emoji Book tag, it’s a tag where you take your five most frequently used emojis and associate them with a book. I’ll add a pictures of the emoji’s so you know which emoji I am talking about, as well as the Goodreads page to the book in the title. I’ll also link the creators of the video at the end of this post.

1. Cute Smiley Emoji

screen-shot-2015-04-06-at-3-41-55-pm

This is the cutie smiley face, so I wanted to choose a book that really thugged at my heartstrings, and that’s why I chose Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Abertalli.
This book follows Simon and his extraordinary first love. I don’t really like books that only focus on love, but this book doesn’t just focus on that, even though its a love story, and that’s why I loved it so much.

2. The Smirky Emoji

screen-shot-2015-04-06-at-3-39-59-pm

Well I started thinking about a characters on this one, and it was Jace Herondale from almost every book Cassandra Clare has ever written. Jace is such a sassy character and I imagine his smile to be more of a smirk.

3. Water Drop Emoji

water-drop-emoji

This one was pretty hard, but I chose Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins becaucemost of the story revolves around water.

4. The Toilet Emoji
x1f6bd-pagespeed-ic-hfyhyabns

On this one I chose Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling
———————–SPOILERS—————————–
I chose this book because when Harry, Ron and Hermione are going to the ministry they travel through a toilet.

That was the end of the first book tag of 2017 🙂 Have a good day/ night.

Januray TBR

Hello Humans! So it’s January, and it’s time to do the monthly TBR list. Link to the goodreads page in the title.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
– This is book one in the Illuminae files series, and it’s about a plantet that got attacked, and the population on this planet had to escape on two separate space shuttles. The series follows two characters, Kady and Ezra but what’s so unique with this series is that the way it’s written is in interviews, emails and stuff like that. Nothing is wtitten in the basic, normal text.

2. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
– I don’t know much about this book, but it’s very well known in the whole Booktube universe, so I am really excited to read this one, and it will be my first Brandon Sanderson book!

3. To Kill a Mockingbrid by Harper Lee (Maybe)
-I just want to push a classic book onto my list 🙂 But I am not sure whether or not I’ll read it or not this month.

JK Rowling created seven Horcruxes. She put a part of her soul in every book and now her books will live on forever
