I usually only read and review YA, but for Uprooted I gladly make an exception! Actually, I thought this was YA when I found it on Goodreads. A search at my favourite bookshop proved different, though, since I found it on the Adult Fantasy shelf! I was so interested in the book, it didn’t really matter that it wasn’t YA. It took me a long time to finish, and a lot of determination at first, but Uprooted has turned out to be one of my favourite books I’ve read for far this year.
Any of you who’ve been following my blog or Twitter over the past few months, knows I’m a huge fan of the Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. I’m still quite new to the fandom and there are just so many books. Like, “Hey! That exists?!” Yep, that was definitely me over the past few months. To anyone new to the fandom, like I was/still am, I’ve decided my new blog series is all about the Shadowhunter Chronicles! Part one: Primary works. Read more
The Broke & The Bookish created the weekly Top Ten Tuesday meme, and today is all about books with a “X” setting! For my list, I chose to talk about Dystopias! It might not be an actual setting, but I love Dystopian worlds and they’re super interesting. Instead of a list, I made a video today. I hope you enjoy watching! Read more
I’m about to tell you the craziest thing, and I’m super excited about it; Today is my first day interning at a Dutch publisher! As you might know, I schedule all my post, so when this is published I’ll be at work! I’m writing this a few days ahead and it’s crazy to think about. Real life is about to begin again! But, before I go back to internship and college, I had the past full month off and I spend my time working on the blog! Read more
I don’t usually write a post without having it in my drafts for a week, have it on pending for another two or so, and then have it scheduled for like a month… But for this post, I gladly make the exception! It’s not really a tag (or at least I don’t think it is!) Okay, so, basically, Cait from Paper Fury (who has an amazing blog you should really check out!) came up with these 30 bookish questions. I actually found it on Zoe’s blog Readabilitea (which is such a fun name!) while blog hopping yesterday. Enough with the rambling, time for the questions! Read more
Sarah J. Maas has done it again! Celeana’s journey continues in the amazing Queen of Shadows. It’s definitely the best Throne of Glass book so far. There was a lot of character development, plot twists and so much more. I think this is my new favourite book! Read more
I made my first video! Well, actually it’s not my first, but it’s my first bookish video for Books & Babbles! The Ruler of Books Tag was simply too exciting to write in a blog post, and I had some time to make a video! I’ve put all the information I mentioned in the video down below! I looked up the cover artists, links to Goodreads for the books I mentioned, etc! I hope you like the video! Read more
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday (a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish!) is a rewind! Basically, we could all pick our own topic – one that was done before! Since I haven’t been doing this for all that long, I had a lot to choose from! Since I love movie adaptations, I decided to choose one about them! The Broke and the Bookish!) is a rewind! Basically, we could all pick our own topic – one that was done before! Since I haven’t been doing this for all that long, I had a lot to choose from! Since I love movie adaptations, I decided to choose one about them! Here’s ten books I’d love to see turned into movies. Read more
Since the start of my blog, I’ve been taking my own photos. I could easily use covers from publishers or Goodreads, but it’s just not me. I like how photos make things personal and original and it’s like ‘two birds with one stone’ thing because I can use them for my Bookstagram as well! Taking photos isn’t difficult, but it takes a bit of time. Today, I’m showing you how I edit my photos and I’m giving you tips on how to take pretty blog or Bookstagram photos! Read more
Lady Midight is the first book in the Dark Artifices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. It’s part of the Shadowhunter Chronicles and takes place five years after the events of City of Heavenly Fire. It features some of the characters we already met in the last Mortal Instruments book, plus some new characters! I was so excited to dive back into the Shadow World! Although I have to admit, I don’t think I ever really left. Anyway, here’s what I think about this new Shadowhunter book!
