Waiting on Wednesday: ’18 Releases

I usually use the Waiting on Wednesday meme as a spotlight on future releases that I’m excited about. But today’s WoW will be a little different. There are so many wonderful books being released next year and I’ll probably do a spotlight on them later, but for now I’ve decided to make a roundup of books that I’m excited about! This is definitely not all of them as there are just way too many great books to be released! Here’s a selection of the ones I’m most excited about. Read more

#BeatTheBacklist Reading Challenge 2018

Beat The Backlist is a reading challenge all about reading backlist books! I'm on team Story Sorcerers and I cannot wait to start reading!

Whew, I’m posting so many extra posts this month! There’s just so many things going on at the moment! Anyway, I wasn’t going to do any other reading challenge than the one on Goodreads, but I recently found the Beat The Backlist Challenge, and I decided to participate pretty much straight away. I have quite a few 2017 releases on my TBR that I won’t be able to read within the next two weeks, but also some older series that I really want to read next year. Basically, I’m pretty sure I can manage to read quite a few backlist titles, and I’ve decided to make it more fun with this challenge. Here’s my goal and TBR! Read more

Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows | Dragons, Dragons… DRAGONS!

I absolutely love Jodi Meadows' books and Before She Ignites is no exceptions! Read all about this stunning book in my spoiler free review!

I’m completely, one hundred procent biased when it comes to anything written by Jodi Meadows. Her latest release, Before She Ignites, is no exception. I actually preordered this back in August, but I was absolutely devastated when I had to cancel it! Thankfully, it was my birthday and I got some gift cards, so I was finally able to pick up the book! I finished it less than 48 hours after starting it because I was loving it so much! Here’s my spoiler free review.

My Bookish Christmas Wishlist

It has been absolutely ages since I last made an actual wishlist. I remember when I was little, me and my little brother would go through the toy store’s catalogue to circle the things we wanted for the Dutch holiday Sinterklaas and Christmas. Still to this day, I take a quick look at the catalogue when it falls on the doormat. I guess I’m sentimental, hehe! Anyway, Christmas is close and for the firs time in forever, I’m making a Christmas wishlist! Spoiler alert: it only has books.  Read more

Being An International Book Blogger

I must’ve written a “Being an International Book Blogger” post like three times since I started blogging in May 2016. I never published it because I felt like it wasn’t important or useful or good enough to be published. I was just complaining without reason, right? I also usually keep my opinions and ranting on my Tumblr, but with everything going on, I thought I’d make an exception. I’m absolutely devastated by the recent developments (or rather steps backwards) by Goodreads and Netgalley. I don’t think I’ll be able to say anything that hasn’t been said yet, but I wanted to share my view nonetheless. Read more

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit

One of my first posts on this blog was a Top Ten Tuesday post, and I think that was the moment I realised how much I love books, blogging and taking bookish photos. Since were nearing the end of the year, and I haven’t done a TTT in a long time, I thought why not end the year with a fun topic? Out of all topics in December, I chose this one about settings. I love fictional places, and here are my ten favourites! Read more

Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch | WE’RE GOING TO PAISLEY!

I have a bunch of favourite books that I haven’t reviewed because I was busy at the time I read them, which turned into a blogging hiatus. I decided to reread them and review them now, because they deserve to be talked about! Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch is one of them. Snow Like Ashes holds a special place in my heart and I’m so happy the trilogy ended so wonderfully! Read more about my thoughts and opinions in my spoiler free review. Read more

Fairyloot November ’17 Unboxing | Ladies That Slay

I’m a huge fan of Fairyloot. Even though I can’t usually afford their boxes, I do keep up with their announcements! When, back in October, the “Ladies That Slay” box was announced for November I just had to get it. Luckily, it was my birthday in November! My mom got it for me as both an early and belated present, since we had to order a month before and it was delivered almost a month after, but I didn’t mind! I’m so excited about the November box, so let’s unbox this thing! Spoiler warning: contents of the November Fairyloot “Ladies That Slay” box coming up! Read more

December ’17 TBR

The end of the year is near! I actually cannot believe it’s December. The year went by so quickly! I’m eight books away from finishing my Reading Challenge, and it’s actually going to be a challenge this year! Usually, I’d finished my Reading Challenge already, but I changed my goal twice this year. I’m actually really happy about it! Anyway, I still have ten books to read, so here’s what I’ll be reading in December.
