CoaBB: I am a sucker for happy endings.

Yes, I'm shortening this CoaBB or Confessions of a Book Blogger. It's easier this way to read what the post is actually about. This post is about Happy Endings - the bookish kind. For those thinking of anything else: get your mind out of the gutter! A lot of times, people seem to think that... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a Book Blogger #10 – I like ‘snowflakes’

Firstly, I don't actually like the term 'snowflakes'. Everyone, whether real or a character in a story, has something about them that makes them different. That's exactly what makes them them. It's what makes characters seem like real people. Sure, stories often follow people who happen to be different. Whether they 'happen' to fall in... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a Book Blogger #9 – There’s one type of book I should get rid of, but can’t (yet).

It's been a while since my last confession, but I've finally thought of one again. After my post last week, I realized that I'm talking all about getting rid of books that you no longer need. Especially those you don't like. Well, there are some books still on my shelves, that I know I should... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a Book Blogger: I can DNF Books after all

A while back, I wrote a blog post where I explained that it is really hard for me to DNF (Did Not Finish) books. However, more recently I've changed a bit around in my life that has also affected my ability to DNF books. As you've seen, I've gotten rid of a lot of things... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a bookblogger #7 – I don’t really like bookish goodies

Yep, I'm not the biggest fan of bookish goodies. Sure, there are things that I like, but mostly something related to books won't really make me happy. I'd rather just have a piece of chocolate, or a book of course. Somehow I've a bit of a thing against anything that I can't use. This means that... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a book blogger #6 – I don’t like reading challenges

Throughout the year, as most of you will know, there are numerous reading challenges that one can compete in. Some are fairly simple, only prescribing the number of books as a goal. Others, will try to give specific prompts to use when picking out a book (e.g. a book with a number in the title,... Continue Reading →

Confession of a bookblogger #5 – I hardly ever buy new releases

That's the sad, sad truth; I don't have the money for it. Weirdly enough, I don't think I'll ever have the money to buy all the new releases right when they come out. Maybe it's my stingy Dutch upbringing (is that seriously still what foreigners believe btw?), but I just don't think it's worth it... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a book blogger #4: I cannot DNF books

This is just one of those things that I, personally, cannot deal with. I hate leaving things unfinished, no matter what it is. I can leave them alone for a long time, for years even, but I will eventually finish whatever it is I am working on. Whether it's a project or a book I'm reading.... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a book blogger #3 – I don’t ship fictional characters

You read that right. I don't ship characters. I've mentioned it before somewhere in one of my blog posts, but I feel like I should really put it out there now. Ever since I started reading (pretty much right after I was born), I've read (or listened to) stories and just accepted them the way... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a book blogger # 2 – I still LOVE children’s books

I adore children's books! Maybe not really a big shock, huh? Since I've been posting quite some reviews of these books as well. And sure, maybe I don't like all of them, there's still so many that I love. I'm not talking about Harry Potter (which was originally intended for adults and is in certain cases...

Confessions of a book blogger #1 – I eat while reading

Yes, now it's out there for the world to see. I am one of those readers; one of those that eats and snacks and stuffs herself while she reads (okay, stuffing might just be occasional). I know there's quite a few people out there that don't like to eat anything while they're reading they're books. I can... Continue Reading →
