20 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me Tag

The lovely and amazing Jess @ My Reading Dress (seriously her posts are amazing and she is hilarious!) tagged me to do The 20 things you probably didn’t know about me tag. So, without further ado here are my answers…

1. How tall are you? 
1, 64 cm. I’m not too tall, but not too short. I think :/

2. Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what? 
Okay, here is my talent: I have the ability of remember most actors’ names, both male and female, and in which movies/tv shows they have worked or are working on. It’s not impressive but very useful sometimes. Ask my friends and family if you don’t believe me.

3. What is your biggest blog-related pet peeve? 
Rudeness. When it comes to reviewing I mean. It is understandable that we cannot like every book we read, I expect the reviewer to treat with respect both the author and his/her work because you know… writing a book is hard work (sometimes. We all know everything has exceptions). So when I read a review which is full with insulting and disrespectful comments I just can’t stand it. And I’ve seen a few. Why people do this? And I’m not talking about sarcasm or anything; I mean pretty heavy hurtful comments. And maybe I didn’t enjoy the book they are bashing either but reading those kinds of things make me want to puke, literally… BE RESPECTFUL PEOPLE, IS NOT THAT HARD.

4. What is your biggest non-blog related pet peeve? 
People who are constantly looking down on everyone. What is the need to make everyone else feel less like you? I can’t stand it. Just, get out of my face.

5. What’s your favourite song? 
WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME!?!?!? I. COULDN’T. PICK. ONLY. ONE. EVEN. IF. MY. LIFE. DEPENDED. ON. IT. Whoever made this questions is evil… this isn’t fair. So I’m gonna cheat and I’m gonna tell you my favourite song at the moment which I discovered thanks to my lovely sister. Changing of the Season by Two Door Cinema Club. I’m obsessed.

6. What’s your favourite Etsy shop that isn’t yours
Etsy is quite an obsession to me but I don’t really have a favourite shop to be honest.

7. What’s your favourite way to spend your free time when you’re alone? 
Reading? hahaha or listening to music or watching a tv show. I’m a badass and I know it LOL

8. What’s your favourite junk food? 

9. Do you have a pet or pets? 
If so, what kind and what are their names? Sadly, I don’t. I had a cat when I was younger but he passed away (ate something with poison… people who poison food to kill animals deserve a very horrible fate). But I would love to have an Alaskan malamute or a Siberian husky.

10. What are your number one favourite nonfiction and fiction books? 
I haven’t read many nonfiction books and most of them where Uni reading back when I studied Psychology. And I don’t have particularly good memories of that time so yeah… but regarding fiction I have to pick Harry Potter. I know there are better books out there but Harry Potter is Harry Potter. Enough said.

11. What’s your favourite beauty product? 

12. When were you last embarrassed? What happened? 
I’ve been embarrassed quite a few times but the one I remember most vividly was when I was 10 or so years old. I was walking with my mum and sisters and I saw a man (well, the back of a man) walking in front of us and I thought he was my father. I started yelling “dad, dad!” while running towards him, and when he turned around I saw he was not my father. Do you know what I did? I passed him and kept running yelling “dad, dad!” like a freaking lunatic. I came back to find my mother laughing out loud at me, which was understandable considering the circumstances. It was all very pathetic.

13. If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
Iced coffee, with milk.

14. What’s your favourite movie? 
Two answers here. One, The Lord of The Rings movies. I never get tired of watching them and I always get emotional, not matter what. The same problem I have with my second choice: The Lion King. Is my favourite Disney movie and I freaking adore and love this movie so don’t judge bye.

15. What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist prep etc.?
I can tell an American created this tag… well, I’m from Spain and high school is not really that big of a deal. We don’t have any kind of hierarchy…. Jeez, we don’t even have dances and stuff like that. But if I have to pick one up, well, bookworm. Plain and simple.

16. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? 
Again, this one is hard. Two of the many places I want to visit have to be Australia and New Zealand. Can someone take me? pretty please?

17. PC or Mac? 
I do use PC but in the future I’ll love to try Mac. Because, why not?

18. Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boyfriend/girlfriend? 
HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA, do I count? If not, well this is a very disappointing answer LOL

19. Favourite celeb? 
Emma Watson. Not only she is making a spot for herself in the entertainment industry but she is a very charming, sophisticated and intelligent human being. And well, c’mon, she is HERMIONE GRANGER!

20. What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with? 
Everyone? My main reason to create a blog was the possibility of expressing my love for reading to the world so finding new book blogger is amazing because it means I can talk about my obsession with others. Let’s all be friends! YAY FOR US!

And that's the end of the tag! Hope you like it and I'm gonna tag some of you:

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
