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!
The Disappearances: 5/5
Author: Emily Bain Murphy
Published by: Pushkin Press
“But really, aren’t there bits of magic everywhere we look?’ Dr. Clifton continues. ‘We’ve just stopped seeing it that way.”
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.”
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!
De Royals: 3.5/5
Auteur: Erin Watt
Uitgeverij: De Fontein
“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!
Words in Deep Blue: 4.5/5
Author: Cath Crowley
Publisher: Young & Awesome (Dutch)
“We are the books we read and the things we love.”
A few days ago, I finished reading Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley (the Dutch edition). Because I want everyone to be able to read this review, I’ve written it both in English and Dutch. Dutch is first, so scroll a bit down for the English review and don’t hesitate to let me know your toughts!
