Read: Non-Fiction pt. 1: Self-Help books

2016 is not over yet, but so far I managed to go far beyond my reading goal for this year. Before I get into the books I have read over the past year and my favorites of the year, I wanted to discuss a new genre I have really gotten into this past year: Non-Fiction. Obviously, I have read a lot of ‘non-fiction’ books for my studies, but I mean.. Read More

Read: November

For November I had high hopes of reading a lot, unfortunately, unlike last month I did not manage to read as much as I had hoped. However a few days into December I am back on track, so next month this post will be a bit longer again! November I thought I would not just list the books, but also let you know the amount of stars I gave it.. Read More

Favorites: November

I can not believe it is already November. I am pretty sure everybody is feeling this way, but 2016 went by so fast. Just one more month until it is December. Next week I will be sharing the books I have been reading this month, but until then here are my non-book-favorites for November. Movie: If you see two movies this year, they have to be Hell or High Water.. Read More

Review: Vinegar Girl // The Taming of the Shrew

As you may or may not know by now I love book clubs. I started going to the ‘Bored to Death Book Club’ over a year ago and then decided to start my own book club in Delft with two friends (it’s called the Undercover Book Club). Since then I don’t go to the BtD book club as much as I used to, but when I saw that they were.. Read More

Favorites: October

Favorites: October Another month, another favorites. Last month I did a ‘quick’ catch-up of the summer months, so this one has the potential to be a little shorter since it will cover only October. I left books out of this post since I did an overview of what I read in last weeks post. Movie: To start the month of right I went to the PAC festival with Lianne. I.. Read More

Booktober Banner

At the beginning of this month I set out to read 4 books for the aptly called ‘Booktober’ challenge and I wanted to write a post about the books I managed to read. I actually forgot to include ‘Hot Milk’ in my tbr since it was the October Undercover book club read, so I would have had to finish it this month as well. So my goal was 5 books,.. Read More

Read: Gillian Flynn

When I look at my bookcase I see a lot of books (I am such a hoarder when it comes to books), but  I also see a sort of pattern. Over time I have developed a liking to certain authors and have managed to read most, if not all, of their books. So I thought it would be nice to share some of my favorite authors and series with you.. Read More

Book to Movie: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I picked up “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” in 2014 in Donner when the second book (“Hollow City“) had just been released. I picked it up because it looked just too beautiful to leave behind. The book features obscure photographs the writer (Ransom Riggs) found in garage sales and other places. He found these photographs and let his imagination loose, creating characters based on the people (often children) in.. Read More

Favorites: July – August – September

If you look at my blog posts the last favorites I wrote was way back in June and it is now already October. I really enjoy making these favorites and I want to continue writing them. Therefore this post is a little catch-up of the past three months so next month can be a ‘normal’ one-month favorites. Movie: I had expected to watch more movies these past three months. As..

Booktober Banner

As I wrote in my previous post, I want to get back to writing. So this is the start! A friend of mine, Lianne from her blog Lianne van Roekel, is doing the ‘Boektober’ challenge and I thought I would join. Boektober/Booktober is an idea from Dagmar Valerie who launched it to give people a little reading boost. So I thought I would join and see how far I will.. Read More
