At the beginning of this year, A Series of Unfortunate Events premiered on Netflix and I’ve been in love with the series ever since. I never knew about the book series when I was kid, so I only started reading/listening to the series at the beginning of this year! The vibe of this series is dark and I guess you could say a bit ‘depressing’ as well as, obviously, unfortunate. It’s a perfect vibe for the dark and gloomy Autumn days, so I thought “Why not share some of my love for this series!?” Without further ado; here’s five reasons why I love ASOUE. Read more
One of my most anticipated releases of this Autumn, was All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater. Imagine my surprise when I found it on Storytel before it even released! Obviously, I couldn’t listen to it until the official release, but it was saved to my bookshelf and I started listening to it the moment I could. I absolutely loved The Raven Cycle so I just could not wait to finally get a new Maggie Stiefvater book!
Contrary to what the title of this post might make you believe, I’m actually not drowning in my TBR pile. Yeah, yeah, okay, I hear your gasps and shocks and… Oh please don’t pass out! My TBR isn’t all that big, not compared to most bookish people in the community, anyway. My TBR is more like a kiddy pool. I’m not very tall, but I wouldn’t drown in there! Anyway, Lara @ Words With Lara tagged me to do this, and I happily oblige! Read more
England, ghosts and haunted houses; The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud sounds like the perfect Autumn book. This first book in the Lockwood & Co. series just begs to be read on a dark, rainy October day. Something funny happened this month: My friend Nadia absolutely loves this series and was going to write a guest post about it. Then I decided to pick it up on a whim and I wrote a review! Turns out our thoughts are quite alike, so I decided to make kind of a duo review of it! Was it actually scary? Was it worth my time? Yes, definitely. Read more about our thoughts in this spoiler free review.
Happy Monday, ya’ll! I have a love-hate relationship with Mondays, even though I don’t go to school or work anymore… Weird, huh? Anyway, I think we all should have a more positive attitude towards Mondays. Mine were certainly better when I thought of all the fun things that could happen in a brand new week! Oh gosh, look a me babbling about unimportant stuff! Let’s get on with my personal update, shall we? Read more
Uh oh, it’s Friday the 13th! Honestly, I’m not superstitious and I don’t believe today is all about bad luck. I mean, if it really were about bad luck, they’ll need more than one or two unfortunate days in the year for me! I think it’s kind of funny how it’s in October this year. It feels perfect, with the spookiness of Halloween! Anyway, today I want to talk about my bad luck when it comes to book. Who knows? Maybe you can relate to my bookish struggles, hehe! Read more
Rainy Autumn days are perfect for looking back at your photos with a nice cup of tea and your favourite music playing in the background, right? I realised a while ago that I had all these Bookstagram photos in my account from last year that were just going to waste, and I wanted to do something with them. Prints always end up and drawers, never to be seen again… So I decided I wanted a book! Then I found Chatbooks. This wonderful company creatures beautiful books for a very affordable price and I just had to share it with you! Read more
I always. always, always listen to music. Whether I’m travelling, reading, blogging or doing anything else. My headphones are quite literally glued to my ears and it has been that way for as long as I can remember. I sometimes try to make playlists for specific books, but it’s been a bit of a struggle lately. Anyway, I started creating this Autumn playlist last year and decided to pick it up again. Since I listen to this playlist a lot while reading, I thought it would be fun to share! Read more
I was super duper lucky when I got to take the entire Seeker trilogy home on my last day of internship back in May. I planned on reading it sometime in May or June, but obviously that didn’t happen. When I sat down to brainstorm posts for October, I suddenly thought of Seeker. Somehow I associate Scotland with Autumn so I thought why not review it now? I don’t usually review Dutch books, but for Seeker I made an exception. I hope you enjoy my spoiler free review!
Hi everybody! I hope you enjoyed the first week of my Autumn-ish posts last week. I had so much fun putting together all these posts and I’m going to keep publishing every Monday through Friday for the rest of the month. Tags are one of my favourite things to do, so I thought ‘If there’s no Autumn tag yet, I’ll create it myself!’ I didn’t have to, though, because I found this super fun Autumn Book Tag and I’ll be answering all the questions.
