REVIEW: Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Katherine Webber

Only Love Can Break Your Heart: 5/5
Author: Katherine Webber
Publisher: Walker Books

Hi guys! The weather is changing into Spring, and changing with it is my preference for books. The sun makes me want to read more lighthearted, contemporary YA so that’s exactly what I was aiming for when I picked up Only Love Can Break Your Heart. Boy, was I wrong about the “lighthearted” part… Whilst it definitely gave me some Spring/Summer feels by being set in the Californian desert, this book ripped out my heart, stomped on it and then revived it with an electric jolt. But I loved every second of it.

Gedichtenbundels: YAY OR NAY? – Empty Hearts & Sleepless Nights door Yasmine Berkani

Je ziet ze steeds vaker en meer: gedichtenbundels. Ze zijn er natuurlijk altijd al geweest, maar er is een heuse herontdekking aan de gang.

Three books you should definitely read this fall

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.

JULY BOOK HAUL – 11 books!

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!
