Since a few years, my family and I are watching the Eurovision Song Contest (well, except my father, he hates it). So tonight there’s the grand finale and we all have our favorites. Most people think Italy or Portugal will win, but personally they aren’t my favorites. So because I have a different taste than most of you guys, I thought: Well, why won’t I share my favorites with you?
When I woke up this morning, I realized something very important and I thought it would be nice to share this with you. And because of this, I suddenly thought: why not share everything I learn in life with you guys? Some things are very important and to be honest, I wished someone had told me certain important things about life, before I did anything stupid…
When my sisters and I were younger, I was always Cinderella, my youngest sister was Snow White and the other one was Belle. Kind of ironic, because nowadays she hates to read and she really looks at the appearance of men. But even though I was always Cinderella, that didn’t mean I didn’t like Beauty and the Beast as a kid. No, to be honest, I loved this movie. And after I grew up, I realized that I became more and more like Belle. In my community, I’m this odd little girl who likes to read and dream of far away places.
Lily Collins, a well-known actress, model and now an author. I think many of us have watched her in The Mortal Instruments, Love, Rosie or Mirror Mirror. About a month ago she published her first book: Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me, an honest and inspirational book about finding yourself and being true to yourself.
In my last post (yesterday) I told you about the next book I was about to read: Nimona. I started this book yesterday evening and to my surprised, I already finished it this morning. Unfortunately I had school, and that’s why I’m writing this review now and not earlier.
I don’t know why exactly, but I bought this book about a year ago, and for some stupid reason, I hadn’t picked it up yet. I wanted to read this book, but I thought it would be a really tough book to read, so yeah… It took me awhile to pick it up. And last week I finally decided it was about time.
Becky Albertalli became one of my favorite autors last year after I’ve read her book Simon Vs. The Homosapiens Agenda. For me, this book was a life-changer. To be honest, I didn’t know when this book, The Upside Of Unrequited would come out, but this Friday I decided to pay a visit to the local bookstore and that’s where I saw this beauty and I discovered this book just came out. Of course, my heart was weak and I just had to buy it.
