11 Facts
- I have a hard time with change, most of the time, so I’m a little bit of a hoarder. But sometimes, I’ll suddenly want to change so might do something drastic. Like yesterday, we went to IKEA, bought a bookshelf and set it up, so I had to change some things around my room. No idea why I suddenly wanted to do that! 
- I’m half French, half American, but live in the Netherlands
- On the back of my bedroom door, I collect cards. Not really postcards of places, more like little quote cards, images, designs, etc... I have a Paper Towns poster, a Mortal Instruments poster that was in City of Heavenly Fire, a few minimalist bookish designs that I printed out and a bunch of random stuff. 
- Headphones all the way - I hate listening to music ‘out loud’
- I just ordered a signed copy of Queen of Shadows :3
- I’m writing my future of literature paper on Pottermore as a Fansite, and my chemistry for the future paper on the use of metal hydrides for energy storage 
- I love the ocean, but not the beach
- my absolute favorite movie when I was growing up was The Little Mermaid 
- I really enjoy watching the most random series! Greys Anatomy, Once Upon a Time, Shadowhunters, The Shannara chronicles...
- Ok. I have earrings in the shape of hexagons. I just thought they were cute little hexagons, and then one of my friends was like ‘why are you wearing cyclohexane earrings?’. Now I can’t see them in any other way o.o 
- I don’t play video games a lot, but I love The Legend of Zelda! *-*

3. When was the last time you had a book hangover, and for what book?

- Well it rains here almost constantly, so I mostly read inside, but I love reading outside when it’s sunny (and warm enough!) 
5. How many books do you want to read this year? 
- Wherever the wind takes me I guess? I can’t really say any set number, because I’m leaving in the middle of the year to the other side of the world, and I have no idea how much reading time I’ll have... 
6. Name a #weneeddiversebooks that you love.
#idkWhatThatIs, but I’m guessing its books about issues that aren’t usually covered? IDK... ;-;
7. Favorite artist?
- As in Art or Music? I guess my favorite individual artist nowadays would be Ed Sheeran because his voice and texts are gold 
8. How do you like to celebrate your birthday? 
- I like just having a pretty much normal day, with a nicer dinner and cake and presents at the end of it. It’s been forever since by birthday hasn’t been on a school day. 
9. Most anticipated book this year?
- Lady Midnight, Trials of Apollo, A Torch Against the Night, Aerie, Gemina...
10. Dream Vacation spot?

Have a great day! 


  1. Change is really difficult to deal with. After a while, after some time, it does get easier...but still, it's hard :/
    Lady Midnight and Trials of Apollo are the two books of the year for me :D
    And yess Clockwork Princess just gives all the feels, and its hard to go back to the present, to now after reading it!! :(
    Love your answers, Caroline - I probably would have answered the same to most! xD

    1. Thanks so much! Yeah change isn’t always easy for me /:

  2. Yes!!!! I loved reading your answers! Clockwork princess gave me this never ending, infinite book hangover that can never be cured! I'm a summer kind of girl too! I think that it's so cool that your French and American but live in the Netherlands ❤️
    - Alicia

  3. Yay! I loved all your answers! Haha, I definitely want to read your future of literature paper, especially since it's about Pottermore! Also, #weneeddiversebooks is We Need Diverse Books, so any book featuring a protagonist of diversity. No worries about not knowing what it is, it's still quite new!
    OMG Lady Midnight is coming out really soon!!! Hopefully that will cure your Clockwork Princess book hangover ;) (Or it might make it worse if the ending is agony...but if that's the case, I'll be in agony with you, and we can suffer from the book hangover together)

    1. hehe thanks! :D
      Oh I had no idea! Well now I know.
      I pre-ordered it and I can’t wait to get it! I’m waiting on 12 books in the mail and being patient is so hard! But that means I get a huge book haul for the first three months of the year, which I won’t complain about! :D
      If the lady midnight book hangover is worse than the one for Clockwork Princess, then Cassandra Clare needs an award for this stuff! XD


Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed this post!
Any and all comments make me smile, and I will reply to all of them!
I can reply in English, French, and sometimes in Dutch and German.
Have an absolutely fabulous day! <3
