The Stuck at Home Book Tag | Currently reading & future TBR!

Hello! I hope you all are doing well! Are you almost done with college / school assignments? Are you looking forward to the summer vacation?

It’s finally proper summer in Portugal. We went from wearing light jackets and trousers to wearing bikinis in just a day, and I’m still trying to adjust to that sudden change of weather. The good thing is that we are actually allowed to go to the beach [as long as we respect the established distancing rules]. My plan for this weekend is to find the remotest place, bring my book and stay there for as long as possible.

How I Read Book Tag | Revealing my reading secrets!

Look at me doing another book tag! I love seeing how other people read, I think it’s the most fascinating thing, together with organization and daily routines. 😀 Thank you, Rafaela for tagging me! Make sure to check her blog if you don’t follow her already!

The Sunshine Blogger Award | Combining all of your tags in one long post!

New week, new books and new to-do lists! Don’t you just love Mondays? 🙂 Monday and Friday are both my favorite days of the week, because for me they mean a new beginning – either the new working week, or new working weekend 😀 I just love making to-do lists and take every opportunity to write those tasks down. 

I finally sat down and sorted all of the tag, you kindly tagged me at. I’m pretty sure that this is my first book tag of this year. Yay! So I decided to combine your questions in one post and share my answers, especially because some questions were similar. I also found some photos from a while back when we were allowed to go outside and enjoy the sunshine, and it really made me miss those times, but of course, staying inside and follow the rules is more important now.

Book Blogging Firsts Tag | Taking a trip down memory lane!

In 2020 my blog will turn 5 years old (time flies when you’re having fun, right?), and I thought it would be very appropriate to start this year with Book Blogging Firsts Tag. I wasn’t actually tagged by anyone, and I know I still have tags I haven’t done from 2017 (I’m so sorry!!!), but we won’t talk about that and instead focus on these interesting prompts! 

Beth @ Reading every Night did this tag last year and inspired me to do the same. Thank you, Beth! ❤

Bookish Naughty or Nice | Book Tag

Were you naughty or nice this year? 

This is a perfect book tag to find out if Santa Claus will be visiting you tomorrow night! I found this at Genie in a Novel, but it was originally created by Jenniely, make sure to visit their blogs! 

I decided to follow the “rules” and see if I answer “Yes” to more than 10 of these prompts, in which case I’d definitely need to watch my bookish behaviour next year… Let’s get started!

The Christmas Book Blogger Tag | Sharing my favorite Christmas moments!

As I sat here listening to the Harry Potter playlist and writing posts for the upcoming weeks (and also sneakily blog hopping and reading all of the amazing holiday content that you, guys, are putting out). I kept seeing more and more festive book tags! And even though it takes me months (sometimes years) to do the tag I was actually tagged for (I’m so sorry for that!!), apparently, doing the Christmass-y tags doesn’t require any motivation whatsoever!

I’ve seen the “Joy of Christmas” and also “The Festive Christmas Book Tag” going around, which I’m planning to do soon. But today I found this amazing “The Christmas Book Blogger Tag” on Confessions of the Book Geek that was created by Between my Lines.

The End of the Year Book Tag | To Reassess, Reevaluate and Reconsider my 2019 goals!

Or should I call it “The triple R” book tag?

We’re currently almost halfway through November, and there are only 6 weeks left before the craziness of the Christmas holidays begins. This means it’s about time to look back on 2019, reassess and reevaluate my goals and try to finish as many things as possible before the end of this year

Because there are literally dozens of items on my End of the Year To-Do list, I decided to make a little series of blog posts and share with you my reading and life goals for the next month and a half.

The NetGalley Book Tag | How do I choose books on NetGalley?

NetGalley is one of the main sources of new releases for me. I love the ever-growing community, the opportunity to read new and amazing books, that I’d probably wouldn’t have. It’s always more difficult for the international readers to get physical ARCs of books (and just ARCs in general), so I’m very thankful that NetGalley exists!

Thank you, Melanie @TBRandBeyond for tagging me! Melanie and Mireille run TBR and Beyond together. Their Top Ten Tuesday posts are always so much fun to read, make sure to check out their blog. 🙂

The Harry Potter Book Tag | Beware of the spoilers!

As we are getting closer to the end of August, which means the end of the NEWTs read-a-thon (with me miserably failing to read the books on my NEWTs TBR), I’ve decided to cheer myself up a bit with a Sunday morning dedicated to all things Harry Potter. 

I put my Harry Potter t-shirt, made myself a cup of tea in a Harry Potter mug, put the first movie on TV and sat down to write the Harry Potter book tag. This Sunday is starting magically! 

Big thank you to my dear friend Jenna from Bookmark Your Thoughts, who thoughtfully nominated me to do this book tag! I feel like all of you already know and love Jenna’s blog (and her amazing personality), but if you, for some reason, are not familiar with her, please make sure to follow this link and befriend one of the kindest and nicest people in the bookish blogosphere!

My Good Reading Habits | Book Tag

Oh, this was not easy! I thought I was decent when it came to reading books, especially since I’ve been doing that since I was little. I thought, I might have developed some good habits along the way!

I was wrong.

It literally took me over 2 hours to come up with FOUR good reading habits. So that’s what we are going with today.

Thank you, Meghan for tagging me! This post really helped me realized that I need to develop some more reading habits. 😀

The Ultimate Game of Thrones Book Tag | Only one episode left!

I stumbled upon the Game of Thrones Book Tag first on The Awkward Book Blogger, and immediately saved that post to not forget and participate in this tag. Because (as you probably already know) I’m LOVING the final season of Game of Thrones. There is only one more episode to go which makes me very sad, but at the same time, I’m glad that this whole story has come to the end.

After looking through the questions, I realized that I didn’t have an answer to most of them! Which sucks when you are doing a tag and are supposed to answer the questions. 😀 So I went googling!

As a result, I found these two posts of the Ultimate Game of Thrones Book Tag, done by Annemieke and Drew. And that is the tag I’m doing today!
