Blogtober: wat las ik vorig jaar rond deze tijd?

Blogtober duurt nog steeds voort, dus vandaag doe ik weer mee met een thematische post. In deze blogpost ga ik kijken naar wat ik de afgelopen jaren in deze week heb gelezen. Ik doe dat, in tegenstelling tot het thema, voor een periode van meerdere jaren, van 2017 en 2018. Dit is dus ook een trip down memory lane voor mijzelf. Kijk je mee?

Blogtober: spooky middlegrade

Blogtober: spooky middlegrade

Oktober betekent in bloggersland blogtober. Ik doe niet braaf met alle thema’s (bedacht door Anniek en Háf) mee, want sommige thema’s zijn gewoon niets voor mij. Deze maand is natuurlijk perfect om te griezelen. Het thema van vandaag is “spooky middlegrade”, maar omdat we dit genre in Nederland niet echt kennen benoem ik een aantal jeugdboeken. Ook nog eens perfect voor de Kinderboekenweek dus! Griezel je mee?

Welcome back, today is day 2 of me being your Bookending Summer host. Today we are going to have a discussion post. Here in the Netherlands, the following question rises often: “Do you read in Dutch or English and why? What is better to do?” These discussions start every so often, so it’s time to write your own opinion about reading in your native language versus reading in English once and for all.

(EN) Bookending Summer: Books to take on holiday, but there is a limit!

Hello and welcome to my first prompt as your host for Bookending Summer! I will be hosting the final three days of this great event and we have had a lot of amazing prompts before. Time for me to challenge you a bit! Summer is the time to go on a holiday and a holiday means lots of reading time. However, you also have to be social and go and see something of the place your are visiting. Therefore, there is a limit on the amount of books you are allowed to take. You can only take 3 books, no matter the format. Tough decisions have to be made, but here are mine.
