#LoveAThon 2016

First of, what is the Love-A-Thon?

According to The Daily Prophecy the Love-a-Thon is an event dedicated to spreading positivity and love. It’s time dedicated to visiting other bloggers/Instagrammers/BookTubers, leaving a comment or two, making new friends and fostering positivity among the members of our amazing community.

I found her post for subscribing on her blog some time ago and I wanted to participate in this great event. So to let you all know who I am, I filled out a questionnaire. For more info that might not be in this questionnaire you can always check my book tags by clicking here. I will try to participate as much as possible.


1. What’s your name?
2. Where in the world are you blogging from?
The Netherlands
3. How did you get into blogging in the first place?
My boyfriend has a blog and when I kept talking to him about the books that I read, he suggested I started a blog too.
4. How did you come up with your blog name?
My boyfriend and I came up with it together, because I really like analysing the characters in stories.
5. What genre do you read and review the most on your blog?
Mostly YA, but if I find something that also interests me I will review that too.
6. What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews?
Book Releases, Top Ten Tuesdays, Book Tags
7. Best blogging experience so far?
A lot of my coworkers checked out my blog when I mentioned it and are really happy with my reviews.
8. Favorite thing about the blogging community?
Being able to talk about books!
9. Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2016!

This one is hard, because I am really happy with my boyfriend and not really looking for anyone else. Also I have something against looking at bookguys/girls as “boy/girlfriend material”. But I think I would pick Duval from the His Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers.

  1. Hello! I really enjoyed Red Queen and Snow Like Ashes. I hope you enjoy them as well when you get to them! I haven’t read the Shadow & Bone series but after reading Six of Crows, I NEED to read them 🙂 I should have put that on my own list. I hope you have a great weekend and a great Love-A-Thon experience!

  2. Hi, Iris!

    I think it’s so cute that your boyfriend convinced you to make a blog. OMG. It’s so cute.

    I cannot wait until The Last Star is finally out. I’m kind of sad that there aren’t going to be ARCs because I want the answers now! Right freaking now. Have you seen the movie version of The 5th Wave yet? I haven’t, but I probably will soon.

  3. Iris! I need to read the Grisha trilogy too. I’ve read Six of Crows, so why not Leigh Bardugo’s other books? (I blame it on my allegiance to the found family crew in Six of Crows!)
