On Kwante‘s I found the series “shopaholic exposed”. She took it over from Candyce & Isabelle, who called this series “looking back on our bookhauls”. The goals of this meme is to look back on your old bookhauls and to check whether you actually have read the books you added back then or not. As I often have huge hauls it’s time to get myself exposed and therefore I’m taking over this series.Keep Reading »
A while ago, I came across The seven or eight deaths of Stella Fortuna by Juliet Grames. I knew I wanted to read this book, but I just didn’t feel like buying it. Fortunately, it was included in October’s Bookchoice selection, so I went ahead and grabbed it.

WWW-Wednesday is a meme I’ve seen on a lot of blogs, so I have no idea who came up with it first. The purpose of this meme is pretty simple: tell us what you have read last week, what you are currently reading and what you will be reading next. You do so by answering the following questions:
- What have you read last week?
- What are you currently reading?
- What will you be reading next?
Time flies when you’re having fun, today is already my last day as your Bookending Winter host. My last prompt is probably my hardest one, even for myself.
Uh oh, Christmas is just around the corner. Life happened and therefore you totally forgot to prepare yourself for the holiday. Answer the following questions and choose which character from books/movies/TV shows would help you to fulfill this task and help you prepare for Christmas.Keep Reading »
Welcome to my second prompt as your host of Bookending Winter. Today we will be talking all about books getting you in the winter and/or Christmas mood. Because winter is the best season to curl up on the sofa with a blanket, having a teapot filled with tea ready and read some books! For this prompt, you may choose books from your TBR as well as books you have read, as long as it gives you the winter/Christmas vibe.Keep Reading »
Welcome welcome to my first day as your host of Bookending Winter 2019! If you want to know all about this fun event to bring the book blogging community closer together, read the announcement post. Ohhhh and don’t forget to join in on this fun running from December 1 till December 31!
Speaking of which…….. December. This year went so incredibly fast, it’s unbelieveable! However, December is the month where it’s time to make some lists and reflect on the past 11 months. Furthermore, it’s time to look forward to 2020 and what you want to change (or not) or what you’re excited for. In short: reflection time. So, let’s reflect on our bookish 2019!Keep Reading »
November has come and gone, so it’s time to put up the Christmas tree and all the other decorations. For some of you it might be the month to try and complete your reading challenge. I didn’t set myself a Goodreads challenge this year, but I’ve read quite some books this past month. Even though I have some kind of genre related reading slump. I found not much Young Adult books interesting or exciting this past month and trust me that’s annoying. So, without further ado, let’see what I’ve read in November!Keep Reading »
November is already over, which means that we only have just one month left of 2019. In October, I had a ridiculously huge bookhaul, so I decided to keep it quiet in November. Well, I quite succeeded. Note: In the Dutch books section, the Dutch covers are shown along with the English titles.Keep Reading »
At the beginning of this month, Now is everything by Amy Giles got its Dutch release. From the moment I saw the synopsis, I knew that I wanted to read this book. I did nearly as soon as I bought it and I have no regrets.

On November 19, the final installment of the “the folk of the air” series by Holly Black was released. The queen of nothing was supposed to release in January 2020, but we got lucky and got it two months earlier. I immediately started this book, did I like it as much as I had hoped for? Note: this review contains spoilers for both The cruel prince and The wicked king.Keep Reading »
