Thank you for your suggestions so far, keep them coming!
I just realized that I have left two requests for From The Vaults unfilled. I think I can put together the list of drug use in contemporary literature myself, but I’m enlisting your help for the list of works that focus on the villain or have a victorious villain.
And thus, finally, concludes The Great Ask Party of 2013 (Askpocalypse?).
Thank you for all of your messages, that was so much fun!
Edit: And just as I typed those words, another ask popped up. You guys are ridiculous and wonderful and thank you so much for sticking with me and caring about my opinions!
I’ve gained a lot of new followers over the past few days, and with these followers, I have also received a few pretty rude comments, mostly about my picks for From The Vaults. Because of this, I have decided to clarify something.
If you disagree with my choices for the From The Vaults lists (and you’re very welcome to), you have the following options:
a. You keep your disapproval to yourself.
b. You keep your disapproval to yourself and make your own list.
c. You contact me and engage in a friendly discussion. I’m more than happy to defend my choices to you, as long as you ask nicely.
What you should definitely not do is reblog my posts with really horrible tags or send me hateful messages. It’s a terrible thing to do, and I don’t think I deserve it.
I really like that I have a nice little community of followers and I love our conversations, so I really don’t want that atmosphere to be spoiled by stuff like this. It’s fine if you hate my posts, but just… Keep it to yourself. That’s all I ask. Unfollow me or something, but don’t be rude.
Here, have a gif of the Swedish Chef:
I’m working on a list of novels about female friendship, and I want to thank all of you for your input! The list is a selection of the books you have suggested and a couple of novels that I have picked out myself.
I love having such a lovely little community of followers, and this post is a true collaboration, so thank you!
So I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this blog and what I want it to be, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to post more original content. More creating, less reblogging, so to speak (although there will still be plenty of reblogging).
I’m thinking about starting a series of short essays about topics I’m interested in (and you can all suggest ideas and questions by leaving suggestions in my askbox) since the summer holidays are coming up and I will have a lot of free time on my hands that I’d like to spend doing something somewhat useful.
On top of that, I’d like to officially put this question to you: is there anything you would like to see on this blog?
Just a quick message for you all: my apologies for the lack of posts these past few days. I had three exams this week, and now I’m lying in bed with what I think might be the flu.
I should be back on my feet soon though!
As requested: my book collection!
(I have recently moved most of my children’s books and a lot of Dutch books I never read anymore to my parents’ house, so it’s not much as it was about a month ago.)
I mean NO DON’T TEMPT ME.
