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?
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe: 4/5
Author: Lauren James
Published by: Walker Books YA
“On good days, which don’t come often, I love my ship and everything it represents. I thrill at the thought of seeing Earth II. There are going to be so many things there that have never been seen by human eyes before.”
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!

“It’s you. It’s always been you and I’m tired of fighting it.”
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!
Phantom Limbs: 4/5
Author: Paula Garner
Published by: Walker Books YA
“Here’s the truth about healing. It’s a fucking myth—an idea they try to sell you on to keep you from killing yourself. You love someone and they leave, but they never entirely go away. You feel them there, acutely, like an amputated limb.”
The Hate U Give: 5/5
Auteur: Angie Thomas
Ik heb een recensie-exemplaar mogen ontvangen van dit boek, dit beïnvloedt niet mijn mening.
“Sometimes you can do everything right and things will still go wrong. The key is to never stop doing right.”
