Bookending Winter: Oh no! Power blackout during snowstorm!

Posted december 23, 2019 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktalk, English, events / 1 Comment

Well well, that has been a while! After my hosting days I haven’t done anything for Bookending Winter, but I barely did anything for the blog to be honest. Today I’m back with another prompt, created by Anisa @ A Bookish Bibliophile. I have to admit that the situation in this prompt is quite unfamiliar to me since we barely get snow overhere, let alone a snowstorm.

Bookending Winter: Organizing Christmas Challenge

Posted december 4, 2019 by Laurie in Booktags, English, events / 5 Comments

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.

Bookending Winter: Blanket, Tea, Read!

Posted december 3, 2019 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktalk, English, events / 5 Comments

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.

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!

(EN) Bookending Autumn: Pumpkin Carver Challenge

Posted oktober 29, 2019 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktags, Booktalk, English, events / 4 Comments

Just 2 days till Halloween, which means that there are just 2 days of Bookending Autumn left! Today i’m doing a prompt created by Sam, one of the organizers of the quarterly Bookend events. I have to admit that I’m not familiar with horror creatures at all, so I don’t know who Jack O’Lantern is, but spelling out his name in books seems like a nice challenge. I will use my “read” shelf on Goodreads to fulllfill this challenge, so let’s see what I could find!

Blogtober: wat las ik vorig jaar rond deze tijd?

Posted oktober 20, 2019 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktags, events, Uncategorized / 0 Comments

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?
