Book lover + reader + reviewer

Review: The Book of Night Women (****)

As I have gotten older (still not that old) I have noticed that my taste in reading material is evolving. Although I still love a nice YA novel, I am becoming more and more intrigued by proper adult fiction (and even non-fiction, as you have seen from my non-fiction related book posts). One of the types of books I want to try to read more of in 2017 is books.. Read More

See: PAC Festival

Last weekend Lianne and I went to the 16th edition of the PAC (Pathe Alternative Cinema) festival of Pathe in Delft. The PAC festival is a day where the Pathe shows five movies that are yet to be released in the Netherlands. I thought it might be nice to give a short review of each of the movies we saw. Jackie The first movie we saw was ‘Jackie’ by Pablo Larraín with Natalie.. Read More

Read: January

After last months super successful reading sprint, January was a bit of a setback. As I was graduating I had very little time left for reading. So here is my very short list for January and a very long list for February. January Here is the list of books (ie one book) I read in January with the rating I gave it on Goodreads (X out of 5) and what.. Read More

Favorites: January

January was great, I finally graduated! However, this did mean I had no time to read or do much besides work on my graduation work. So as my first favorite I would like to share one of my favorite images of my project: this A0 poster of a 1:15 scale section of my design I drew in Autocad (I would like to stress that, yes, I did draw every. single… Read More

Read: Non-Fiction pt. 2 – Books about people

A little later than I had originally planned, but here is the second part of my favorite non-fiction books I read in 2016! You can find the first part here, it is about self-help books. This post will be about my faves in the category ‘books about people’ which are usually written by the author about their own life. What I like about the books I’ve picked is the humor.. Read More

Favorites: 2016

I know, I know it is the last day of January and I am only now sharing my faves of 2016. A little late for sure, but I have a couple of posts in the backlog and I am trying to get back on track. So here goes a final favorites of 2016: For the year overview, I thought I would give you a top 10 of the movies and.. Read More

Favorites: December

What a year, what a year. Before I share my faves of the year, I wanted to do my faves of December. I already shared the books I read this month in a previous post, so here are my non-book favorites for December. Movie: I tried to get to 100 movies this year and so I tried to do a bit of a catch-up in the last month. In the.. Read More

Do: 2017 Reading Challenge (and end of 2016)

Last year I made a post about the Reading Challenges I had planned to take in 2016. Since it is now the start of 2017 I thought it would be nice to reflect on those and set some new ones. 2016 My challenges were: Read 40 books I finished 60! A post about my faves will be up soon and check out my monthly reviews to see some of the.. Read More

Read: December

I don’t want to brag, but I am going to anyway and say I KILLED it in December on the reading front. I looked at my Goodreads reading challenge (40 books) and I noticed that I was not very far away from 60. So I gathered all the thin books I could find on my to-be-read shelve and read them. This resulted in me finishing 11 books in December, putting.. Read More

Thoughts: Looking back on 2016

It is that time of year again, time to reflect on the past year and perhaps set some resolutions for the new year. Instead of creating two different posts like I have done previous years, I decided to combine them into one this year. Let’s reflect So first let’s reflect on the past year. I started 2016 at a low point, but with a non-fiction-could-definitely-be-defined-as-self-help book. I decided to write.. Read More
