Je ziet ze steeds vaker en meer: gedichtenbundels. Ze zijn er natuurlijk altijd al geweest, maar er is een heuse herontdekking aan de gang. Met moderne dichters als Rupi Kaur en Lang Leav worden gedichten weer helemaal in. Zelf lees ik eigenlijk nooit gedichtenbundels, simpelweg omdat ik gewend ben snel door te lezen en je voor gedichten juist je tijd moet nemen. Toch kon ik geen nee zeggen toen ik een tijdje geleden een mailtje ontving van 17-jarige Yasmine die mij vroeg of ik haar gedichtenbundel wilde lezen. Na wat research dacht ik: “Why not?”, want wat ik er over las, klonk al erg mooi. Dus toen Yasmine’s boek Empty Hearts & Sleepless Nights op de deurmat viel wilde ik meteen er in beginnen.
Hello lovelies! If you’ve read my other unboxing posts, you will have noticed that this box will be my last as a rep for Bookboxclub. Something that makes me sad – but also happy to have been part of this for three months. So I sincerely hope you liked all my unboxings so far and I’m excited to show you the contest of September’s special one-year anniversary box. Yes, you read it right: Bookboxclub celebrated its birthday last month! 🎉 As a big fan, I hope there’s many more bookish years to come. They also made a special announcement, which I’ll talk about the end of the post. Read on, read on.
Hi friends! I seriously cannot believe it’s October already. OCTOBER! This year has gone so fast and I need it to chill for a second. But another month also means another opportunity to try and read more books than you did the month before. So first answer me this: how many books did you manage to devour in September? Read on to see how I did and what I plan to read this month!
Hey friends! The world’s favourite time of the year has come again. It’s time for big, cosy sweaters, a million mugs of tea, blankets, rain and the colours changing from green to brown. Ah yes, you guessed it: it’s fall. Sometimes I get why people are obsessed with it– the cosy vibes are REAL. But sometimes I can’t help but wonder if fall is better where you all seem to live, since (literally!) all we get here in the Netherlands is rain. Loads and LOADS of rain.
So if you, like me, live in a country where fall is questionable, I’ll come to your aid today. Recommending you three books I recently read to get you all warmed up for the colder months to come.
Another month, another bookboxclub Box, another post showing the full unboxing! Yay! As you might have read in my previous unboxing, what makes Book Box Club so special is that they host a secret members meeting at the end of every month. In this meeting, it’s not just you members– there’s also the author of the month’s featured book! In about an hour, you can ask all your burning questions about the book and get answers FROM THE FRIGGIN’ AUTHOR. If that’s not amazing I don’t know what is. Last month’s meeting was about July’s book The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy (review will be up soon). Let’s take a closer look at what their August box had in store for us, shall we?
As promised, I would come back to you with my famous, much talked about, hilarious, enchanting and amazing WTD(ts)-series. Remember my 5 TV Show recommendations? In all truth, very few probably care. But I am here for you few that are excited to learn from a huge film nerd like me what movies they should totally watch this summer. I’ve tried combining some intense and some fun movies to give you the most varied taste one can give in only five recs. Let’s jump into it!
Hoera! Het is weer eens tijd voor een winactie. En wat voor een! Best of YA was zo lief om mij een extra exemplaar te sturen van hun pas nieuwe boek DE NIEUWELING van Taran Matharu. Meedoen is super makkelijk, dus lees even snel verder om er achter te komen wat je moet doen en waar het boek nou eigenlijk over gaat!
Maybe you’re following me on Instagram. Maybe you’re not. If you are, then you might have seen that I was chosen to be a rep for Bookboxclub for the months of July, August & September. AND I AM SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS, because their concept and boxes are amazing. So a while ago I received the July ‘SPELLS & REMEDIES’ box and that box is exactly what I’m going to unbox for you today. Safe to say there are massive spoilers for the box but I guess you should have figured by now. Hah. On y va!
Hello friends! As promised, I would be back with more posts after my (much needed) summer vacation. I first visited Gozo, which is an island close to Malta, for about 10 days and flew to London straight after. Naturally, I couldn’t visit London without buying some books. Sadly, my suitcase space was limited which led to me “only” buying three. Now you must have become a bit curious, yes? In this post, I’d like to show you all the books I bought and received in the month of July. And I promise you– it was a verrrry good month. Let’s commence!
Hey everyone! Summer is upon us and that of course means utter boredom. We all miss school, getting up early and falling asleep mid-day so much… So naturally, we have to find something fun to spend time on to avoid this much dreaded boredom. And so, especially for you, I present my “WTD(ts)”-series: What To Do (this summer). Starting off with a list including some of my favourite tv shows that I think could brighten up your summer.
