Sunday Post #8 – Licorice and shopping

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This way, I can tell you a little about my week and sum up what happened on the blog and everything else that I find interesting.

This week on the blog

Coming up next week

  • Sisterhood of the Bloggers Award
  • Review: The Duality Bridge by Susan Kaye Quinn
  • Literary Lessons – vocabulary 3
  • Review: Aan de Bal by Lieneke Dijkzeul
  • On my bookshelf #12
  • Review: The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen


I got more of those oh-so-lovely immuno-therapy shots. This time though, first time ever, my arm didn’t swell up like a balloon. I still don’t know what to think of it.

This also means I spent the weekend at my parents. I tried to find some of the essentials I still wanted for my wardrobe. I found one thing: white Birkenstocks. However, I also bough a black jumpsuit. It might not’ve been on my to-buy list, but it’s amazingly versatile, so I feel like it makes a good addition to the clothes I have.

On another note, I brought back a whole bunch of licorice and licorice root tea, because well, it’s not really sold anywhere around here.

  • Any bookish/personal/other questions? Let me know in the comments, through email, Facebook, Instagram and I’ll answer them! Maybe I’ll even do a Q&A post or write an entire blog post.
  • Jenny from Jenny in Neverland gives some tips for effectively sharing blog posts; I really should take some of these to heart!
  • Sarah from New in Books shares 6 reasons why you should be reading more – though I think that for most of my audience these reasons are just a nice addition to the enjoyment of reading.

  1. Where do you live Myrthe, that liquorice (licorice) is hard to get? I’m a fan but coeliac (celiac) so have to make sure it’s gluten-free first!

    Look forward to reading your SIsterhood of the Bloggers Award as I did one recently as well and it’s nice to read what others are saying / doing.

    1. I live in Germany, there’s not a lot of licorice around here unfortunately. Though, I would have to say (are you from the USA?) that in the USA licorice is something completely different, more related to a certain texture of candy, in Europe (as far as I know all of it) licorice is any candy with licorice flavor.


      1. Ah no, I’m from Australia! A friend of mine used to love a brand of liquorice we have here and when she lived in Japan I used to have to mail some over to her. It cost WAY more in postage than for the liquorice itself!

        1. Haha, wow! Although that might’ve happened to me too, if I’d shipped it. Even if it’s just from the Netherlands to Germany; the Dutch postal service likes to charge a LOT.
