Blogmas: Intro + Where I've been

Blogmas: Intro + Where I've been

I haven’t done a wrap-up since August… woops. I have some serious catching up to do! First off, since I haven’t blogged for so long, I’m going to try and do Blogmas 😉 We’ll see if I have enough to say to last me until Christmas… As for where I’ve been… well… September: School started again (thank god!!) and I reached my Goodreads reading goal for this year (on September 5th) so I added another ten books… I outlined a…

August 2018: Wrap-up

August 2018: Wrap-up

Summer has come and gone, it’s starting to look a lot like autumn here in Belgium. Time to wrap up the past reading month. The month started off with the 2018 BookTubeAThon and this year, I did extremely well. I read 6 of the 7 books. I guess I could have read 7 but the last book I selected wasn’t working for me. So I decided to call it quits. These are the books I read: Breakfast at Tiffany’s –…

June 2018: Wrap up + Currently Reading

June 2018: Wrap up + Currently Reading

I picked up a couple of books in June, I also put a lot of them down. I’ve gotten to a point where, if the book doesn’t appeal to me in the opening chapters, I put it back down to revisit at a later time. I don’t give up on them, I’ve just realised that if I want to get through a big portion of my TBR, I’ll have to choose what I read more wisely. Books I picked up…

April & May 2018: Wrap-up

Sooooooo, you might have noticed there wasn’t an April wrap-up. I just didn’t feel like writing one. To be perfectly honest, blogging had lost its appeal and I was trying to get all my words to flow towards the book I’m trying to write. Time to get you up to speed! Here’s a little overview of the books I’ve read in the past two months. Books I read in April and May Circe by Madeline Miller ***** If there was…

February 2018: Wrap-up

I know.. it’s the middle of March and I’m only just starting to write this post. I’ve been dragging my feet and I know I should stop but the cold and the rain are getting to me. Can it be spring already? I’m desperate for some warmer, sunnier days. Books I read in February The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton I LOVED this book. It was so full of details and intense, really intense. Yes, I’ll say…

Top 5 books of 2016

Top 5 books of 2016

Looking back on my reading year, I have A LOT of 4 star reads and not a lot of 5 stars. I’m not sure what that says about my reading exactly, maybe I just haven’t read the right books? But that sounds a little too negative. I’ve liked most of the books I’ve read and I even loved a couple. So I should consider this year a success. There, that’s what I’m going with! I’ll do a separate post where…

Wrap up July – 2016

Wrap up July – 2016

Hi! Unlike many others, I’m actually glad that it’s August already. Because my husband is always super busy during the summer holidays (he’s a sound technician so summer festivals mean busy busy busy) so we’re taking some time of in September, which seems impossibly far away. Sitting at home and seeing everyone’s pictures of their travels is both fun and agony at the same time. Fun because I get to dream of travelling in September, agony because it’s only August the…
