Beauty and Brains

Taggity tag tag. I’m it.

Tags are always great fun and they can break up other things going on the blog quite nicely. And let us be honest, who even has all the ideas to fill up the blog for 3-4 posts a week. Certainly not me. But I haven’t done one in a few month as I had my bookshelf tour going up.

For this one I was tagged by Kirsten from Boekwereld so thank you for that!


Beauty & the Brains | Favorite book

How dare you ask me that? You can’t make me choose between my baby’s…

But if you must know:
The Golem’s Eye / Sorcerer to the Crown / Seraphina / A Monster Calls / A Hat Full of Sky / and many more

Beauty & the Brains | Favorite quotes

I am not good at remembering quotes so here is one I came across last.

โ€˜Granny Aching had never been at home with words. She collected silence like other people collected string. But she had a way of saying nothing that said it all.โ€™

From A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett

Beauty & the Brains | English or Math

I am sure that it is no surprise that I say English here. Seriously, English was the only subject I never had to study for.

Beauty & the Brains | Science or Art

Well I sucked at science so this shall be art. But I’m not very artsy either so…

Beauty & the Brains | Name five music artists or albums that changed your life

No life has been changed by music here. But artists that I have loved in the past (I don’t really follow a lot of music these days) would be Robbie Williams, Kensington, Linkin Park.

Beauty & the Brains | Favorite and least favorite subjects

Favorite would be history. My least favorite would be science, math, economics, biology and all the rest I suppose haha.

Beauty & the Brains | Favorite “celebrity with a brain”

I don’t know? Who even has a brain these days? Could you not have asked author? So many brains to pick there.

Beauty & the Brains | If you could study anything anywhere, what would it be?

Looking back sometimes I wish I would have continued onto university after my bachelor, for psychology. Or even had studied English or a study to work properly in a library. But I never really considered those at the time. Life changes as do your interests at times.

Beauty & the brains | What’s your nerdy little secret?

Do I have one? I don’t know…

Beauty & the Brains | Favorite beauty guru(s), who do you admire for more than their love of beauty/fashion

I really don’t look at fashion bloggers or fashion anything really.

Beauty & the Brains | Name some things that you’re obsessed with that other people might find strange or geeky

I’m obsessed with books, minions, cats, incredibly pretty covers, dragons. Shall I go on?

Beauty & the Brains | Name five people (excluding friends and family) who inspire you

Oh that is difficult. Cait from Paper Fury inspires me as she shows so much personality in her posts. Victoria Schwab inspires me as she get going even when her books were being rejected and look where she is now. I can’t think of anyone else at the moment though…

Beauty & the Brains | Who’s your intellectual soulmate?

My husband?


What was your favorite subject?

  1. Ooh that’s a neat quote. Oddly enough, I’ve never liked math, but it was always my best subject lol. And history was my worst. Though that might’ve had to do with how it was taught, so dry and filled with names and dates and not much else. But I have always found psychology interesting!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Haha at least you were good at it. ๐Ÿ˜€
      History can be quite a bit dry. I tended to just pick up a lot during class so I didn’t have to study as much. I usually got the reasons why things were done so that made it easy.
