The November 2018 Clever Ruse Illumicrate Unboxing

After the amazing surprise of the September box, I got an even bigger surprise when I learned that I was also getting the November box as a gift! EVEN MORE SCREAMING HAPPENED. The only clue I wanted to know (and I stayed away from all other clues) was that the book featured had was inspired by…

November 2018 Reading Wrap-up

Winter time equals to blankets, hot cocoa and books to me, and I’ve definitely enjoyed the cosy and comfortable evenings so far. Here are all the books I read during those moments. Dry by Neal Shusterman & Jarrod Shusterman I’ve read a few Shusterman books by now and I immediately want to read this one…

Fall 2018 Book Haul

Welcome to a new segment on my blog! I love seeing and reading everyone’s book haul posts, but as I’m not allowed to buy more than two books a month (damn book buying budget), I never actually wrote any myself. I went a little crazy this Fall in the book buying department (and now I’m definitely feeling…

How I’m Showing Off My Bookish Travels

Ever since I came across the Guardian’s The world’s 10 best bookshops article years ago, I’ve been slightly obsessed with amazing bookstores and libraries. Whenever I’m going on a trip, I immediately search for all the bookstores and libraries I want to visit while I’m there. And I’m not too proud to admit that some…

Dry, or how I hugged my water bottle

I’ve come to love Shusterman as an author during the last couple of years, so I keep an eye out for any book he publishes. When that latest release is about a modern day drought where the taps are suddenly not providing water any more, I don’t need any more incentive. I just knew I was going to love Dry.

Why I Am Waiting For The Bookly Android App

Today I’m sharing a post that is a bit different than my usual posts so bear with me. Oh and this is absolutely not sponsored. (Please keep reading…) I’ve discovered a few weeks ago that if I don’t read on a regular basis, it messes with my mental health, and if I don’t read before bed…

October 2018 Reading Wrap-up

October is traditionally the month that fall really hits with the days getting shorter and the reading time cosier. For me, it begins a period of more reading, but it was also the month I vowed to take my physical exercise more seriously and spent two days a week dying during CrossFit. Somehow though, I…

You Only Live Once, so how do you want to live your life?

A new Jess Vallance book? I want to read it. It’s about the pressure we live under and what’s actually important in life? I NEED to read it. That was basically my thought process when I heard of the existence of You Only Live Once, and I was determined to quickly get my hands on it and devour it.

Young Adult Tropes I’m Not Taking Anymore

With it being Cliche Day today, I couldn’t help but think about the YA tropes that are so overdone it isn’t even funny anymore. There are some tropes or cliches that annoy me (especially in the romance-department), but I think that I’m not that easily bugged either. Still here are 4 tropes that I’m honestly not…

4 Books That Will Give You The Creeps

I’m not as Halloween-obsessed as the rest of the world seems to be (probably because I’m an absolute wimp and don’t see the appeal of intentionally getting scared), but that doesn’t mean that I don’t pick up a scary book from time to time. (Am I contradicting myself here?) Just in time for Halloween tomorrow, I’m sharing…
