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.”
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.”
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!

Phantom Limbs: 4/5

“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.”
