Bookreview: Stranddagboek (Beach Read) by Emily Henry

Bookreview: Stranddagboek (Beach Read) by Emily Henry

During the recent heatwave here in The Netherlands I was really in the mood for a nice summer read. So when I got send Stranddagboek (Beach Read) by Emily Henry I felt that would be the perfect book to read. And I was so right! We had a little paddling pool in the garden because that was basically the only way to get through the day. I read most of this book in that little pool, quite appropriate right. Ok, I guess reading this at the beach would have been even more appropriate, but I’m not really a fan of…

Bookreview: My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell

Wow, what a book this is… When I mentioned on my Instagram that I was about to read this book I got warned by quite a few people. That this was definitely not going to be a light read, and they were so right. If you’re looking for a nice feelgood easy to read book you should totally skip this one, because My Dark Vanessa is – as the name also suggests – quite a dark read.

My Reading Rush TBR

My Reading Rush TBR

It’s been a hot minute since I participated in a readathon, but honestly, I feel like I need one! I haven’t been reading much these last couple of months at all and that needs to change. I love reading, I know that, but somehow I have a hard time actually picking up a book and making time to read. It’s so much easier to just put on some YouTube video or a Netflix show, but I know that in the long run, I will enjoy a book much more. So it’s time to just read again! I saw that the…

Book club: Havenfall by Sara Holland

Book club: Havenfall by Sara Holland

One of my most anticipated read of the year was the book club pick for March; Havenfall by Sara Holland. I absolutely loved her debut novel Everless, so I was naturally very excited about this book. And I just have to say the cover of this book is unbelievably pretty. One of the prettiest covers I’ve seen in a while. And the Dutch edition is even a little bit more beautiful because it has a seal and it folds all around the book, stunning! But is the inside just as pretty?! Havenfall by Sara HollandPublished by Blossom Books on March…

The book that almost got me in a reading slump again..

The book that almost got me in a reading slump again..

January was such a good reading month for me, I finished 5 books. Which to some of you might not seem as much, but to me it definitely. is. They were also 5 books that I thoroughly enjoyed, every single one of them. February – so far – has been very different. I started this book which I thought I’d read in like a day since it is so short, well it’s now the 19th and I have just finished it… Didn’t read anything else yet. 2019 was the year that I would describe as one big reading slump, this…

5 Romance books I want to read ♥

Happy Valentine’s Day! If you celebrate it that is. I personally don’t, but I did want to share some books that I’ve got on my TBR list that kind of goes with the Valentine’s theme. One of the goals that I set at the beginning of this year is to read more thrillers. Well, I’m doing pretty good with that goal, but I’ve added one. I also want to read more romance. In January I participated in the Romancetheque Bookclub and read Outmatched by Samantha Young and Kristen Callihan. I loved the book so much and it made me wonder…
