Commande sur The Book Depository.

Les photos ont été prises au moment du déballage, désolé pour la qualité…

Il m’a fallu entre 8 et 12 jours pour recevoir mon colis qui m’a coûté un total de 20€19 pour les intéressés…. Au lieu de 38€45 si je les avais acheté en français. Quand je vous disais que ça revenait moins cher !

Pour la qualité du colis, je suis super contente, comme je vous l’ai déjà dit. Le seul petit accro est sur Love letters to the dead, qui est arrivé par lettre…

A to Z Survey : English version #1

(Cet article devrait être traduit dès que j’aurais obtenu l’autorisation de la créatrice de ce tag)

Hi !

This is my first English article : I want to try to do an English tag, which is just fabulous !!! If there are mistakes in this article, say it to me : I will be very happy to correct them !!!

You can’t imagine how much I’m happy to do this article ! The tag is just amazing and I love speaking English… If you like English article, say it : I can try to do more article in English…

So, let’s go for the tag !!!

This tag has been created by Jamie on the blog The Perpetual Page-Turner. It’s a nice blog. Visit it !

Author you’ve read the most books from:

We will say that series are like an alone book because, otherwise, the author will be Lemony Snicket because I’ve red all books of the series A Series of Unfortunate Events…
So, I imagine that it’s Conan Doyle or Molière

Best Sequel Ever:

Er… I will say The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Volume 2) by Lemony Snicket. The first volume is very bad : personally, I hate it, but the second is just amazing !!!

Currently Reading:

At the moment (Friday, June 13th 2014), I’m reading a French book : Chouette, une ride ! d’Agnès Abécassis (I don’t have the English title…)

Drink of Choice While Reading:

Orange juice or hot chocolate (just like I said in my first Le Jeudi c’est Jeu Livresque )

Ereader or Physical Book?

Physical book without any hesitation ! I love having a book in my hands… Moreover, I think that a book is ALSO a decoration. An E-reader isn’t.

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Er… Does anybody can translate this question for me ? I didn’t understand…

Thanks to Nothing Like Book, I can answer : And so, it’s nobody !!! I never fall in love with a fictional character.

Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:

 Wonder by R.J. Palacio. It was a book, which was in my wish-list because people like it. A day, I see and in a bookshop and there wasn’t any other book who was in my wish-list so I bought it : GOOD IDEA, it was just gorgeous !!!

Hidden Gem Book:

Demain j’arrête, de Gilles Legardinier. (Like for the « C », I don’t have the English title…). This book is so funny ! But, you will say, why is it a « hidden » gem book  ? Usually, funny books don’t make me laughed. It does.

Important Moment in your Reading Life:

CP (Year 2 in England) : it’s the reading school year. I explain : in France, we learn reading in CP so it’s a very important year !

Just Finished:

Shatter me, by Tahereh Mafi. It was good but not amazing…

Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:

Horror books. I can’t. If I read horror book, I will do nightmare…

Longest Book You’ve Read:

The Faerie Wars Chronicles, by Herbie Brennan : in France, we have an unabridged version (with the first four volumes) with 1394 pages…

Major book hangover because of:

Er… Me before you, by Jojo Moyes. Nothing to say.

Number of Bookcases You Own:

Real bookcases ? Zero
Thing that is using as a bookcases ? 1,2,3,4…. Too much, we can’t count

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:

Le sixième jour, d’Andrée Chedid. I have red it three times and I always love it.

Preferred Place To Read:

My bed, the beach, a garden… All cosy places.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:

“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.”  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, by J.K. Rowling.
