Boekenbeurs Glanerbrug 2018

The last two years, I've been going to the Boekenbeurs in Glanerbrug. The money raised there goes to three different charities, which only makes it a better past time. After all, I get books, people in need get money. What's not to love? Last year, and the year before, I had a pretty good haul.... Continue Reading →

Reading statistics – July 2016

Another month has ended. I only managed to read 5 books this month. Not surprising, as I went to Scotland for two weeks and somehow rewatched all the seasons of Gilmore Girls. In between all of that, there wasn't a lot of time left for reading. I also starting two other books that I didn't... Continue Reading →

A-Z bookish survey

This survey was created by Jamie from Perpetual Page Turner. I saw this floating around the blogosphere and thought I'd give it a shot as well. Most answers were pretty predictable though if you've read any of my previous posts about favorite/most read books. Nonetheless, I hope you still enjoy it! Author you’ve read the most...

Literary Lessons – vocabulary #3

Again, this amazing P. D. James novel increased my vocabulary. These are the ten words I found in there that I didn't know before. Honestly, the amount of words I found in this book makes me almost feel like I don't know the English language at all! The Children of Men P. D. James 978-0-571-25341-8... Continue Reading →

Literary Lessons – vocabulary #2

As you might have realized reading the first vocabulary post, the page numbers were all very much in the beginning of the book. When I wrote that post I hadn't actually finished reading the book yet. I still haven't at the writing of this, but will have when this posts. I didn't want to post... Continue Reading →

Reviews from a Bookworm created a book tag and invited everyone to do it (also, you can use it get extra entries for her giveaway and who am I to say no to that!?) This one is... Continue Reading →

Literary lessons #1 (intro + vocabulary)

I wanted to start something new on my blog, something where I can keep track of words, sentences, quotes, names and such. Partially for myself, but maybe also to inspire others. They'll be literary lessons. I love language, and hopefully this way I can also do something with it on my blog. While reading, I often... Continue Reading →

Getting Out by Ann Goething* 3. In Defense of English Cooking by George Orwell* 4. Criminological Theories by Suzette Cote* 5. The Blood of... Continue Reading →

July Wrap-Up

I wasn't quite sure how to do my July wrap-up. Since I've been doing the Sunday Post, it seemed like it might be nicer to wrap up a whole month of blogging, instead of just telling you which books I've read. Sure, it's interesting, but at the same time a list of books is also... Continue Reading →

June bookhaul & wrap-up

Once again, I bought way too many books. I don't know, but it just seems to happen that way. It's never planned. However, I've also gotten through quite a few books this month, so I believe that makes up for it, right? Anyway, here's the books I bought/received this month: 1. The Young Elites by Marie...
