Anything but books tag.

Hello my book friends!

For today's blog post, I thought to do a little different tag. Where I can talk about anything but books. Yes, I do other things than reading books. Shocking but true 😉

1. Name a cartoon(s) that you love.
I haven't seen a cartoon in a long time. But a few months ago, I saw Tom & Jerry along with my nephew, and I loved Tom & Jerry as a child. One of my favorites.


2. What is your favorite song right now?
Before I saw the latest Fast & Furious movie on the cinema last friday, I would have said Evermore from The beauty and the beast movie with Dan Stevens. I love that song so much and the actor even more. But now my new favorite is Good life with G-Eazy & Kehlani.

3. What could you do for hours ( that isn't reading)?

Netflix. I love watching tv-series and specially on Netflix. One of my favorite series to watch lately have been Bones. It's one of my favorite crime series and I love all the characters. Specially Bones and Booth, the two m…

Book review: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. SPOILERS!

I finished Passenger and needed to talk about it right away. As you might guess, I have a lot of feelings about this book, which I just have to share. I love this book so much and to tell you the truth, when I read the first pages of story, I didn't thought I would love it as much as I did in the end. I loved the characters. Etta and Nicholas was fantastic main characters. I love how we got to see the story from both their sides.

When we first meet Etta she is in New York in our time. She is a violin prodigy, living a normal life. In one night her life is turnes upside down. Before she completely understands what happened to her, has a strange girl named Sophia Ironwood pushed her literally into the past.

In the Atlantic in 1776, Etta begins to understand that she is no longer in the same century.  She quickly learns about the secret her mother has kept hidden, about time traveling being a part of her heritage. On the ship in the 18th century, she meet Nicholas - another time travle…

#Borrowathon wrap up!

I didn't read much during the week of #Borrowathon. I almost finished reading The forbidden library by Django Wexler.


I love participate in the read-a-thon. I love reading with other people. For me that's my favorite part, not how many books I read.

I did finish my graphic novels for this read-a-thon but not during the week. I read them yesterday.

Movie review: Beauty and the beast 2017.

This is one of the best live action movies I've seen in a long time. I loved it from the start. When I got home I went straight to my computer and pre ordered it. 

I loved the music, of the new songs were Evermore my new favorite. Especially when Dan Stevens performed it. He sang it amazingly well. I felt a tear or two on my cheek when I heard it. There was something about the atmosphere of the movie when the song was played. Very touching and emotionally. Both Emma Watson and Dan Stevens was fantastic in their roles. They looked incredibly good as Belle and the Beast / the Prince. I was very pleasantly surprised by the chemistry between them. Something that I feel is important especially in this type of movie.

Enjoyed both the story and the different characters. I felt they brought much from the animated version into this movie and what was added to the story, matched well with the "old ". The only thing I noticed that I think they could have done a little different was t…

Book review: Go set a watchman by Harper Lee.

To kill a mockingbird is one of my favorite classics. I really recommends everyone to read it. When I heard about Go set a watchman last year I had very mixed feelings about it. I heard people both loving and hating the book.  I was afraid it would ruin my opinions of the characters I love so much.  Instead I feel in love with this story and even more in the characters, than I already had before.

26 years old Jean Louise Finch "Scout" return to Maycomb, Alabama to visit her aging father, Atticus.  She has lived in New York for a while, away from her family and where she grow up. Being back bring old memories to the surface. From her childhood time with her brother Jem. At the same time the civil rights movement is starting to show in Maycomb. Scout becomes struck by how racism pervades the town and specially the people who are closest to her.

I love Go set a watchman. It is perhaps not as good as To kill a mockingbird, but I find the story interesting and the characters sti…

Friday read March 17.

I started reading Passenger by Alexandra Bracken some days ago and it's so amazing. I already love it. It reminded me little bit about The girl from everywhere by Heidi Heilig. One of my favorite books from 2016. I love time traveling and history.  So it's perfect for me. I'm reading this book together with my friends in Read together book club on goodreads.



Happy Friday everyone!
