Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Normally today was reserved to talk about wintery reads, but honestly? I don’t have any particular wintery reads. In winter I often do like to re-read old favorites, but I didn’t feel like that warranted a post. Now, what I do love to do in winter more than any other season, is binge-watch short and addictive tv series.

You know, the kind of show that doesn’t have too many episodes, but just enough to get you hooked and looking forward to watching a new episode (or two, three) every evening with a cozy blanket and a hot chocolate. Here are some of my favorites!

181127 friendships

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today I’d like to focus on one of my own weak spots when it comes to stories, and that is friendship. Because as much as I love a good romance, I think it’s equally important for a story to have great, epic friendships.

Great friendships can carry a story and warm the heart just as well, if not more so than a romance can. They are so important and usually books that feature friendships turn out to be some of my all time favorites. So that’s why today’s post features some of my favorite fictional BFF’s and friend groups. Let me know if you have any other recommendation for books featuring friendships!

Books, Music & More I’m Thankful For In 2018 {Top Ten Tuesday}

181120 Thankful

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s post is in honor of Thanksgiving in the US. While we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Belgium, I do think it’s a nice idea to take a minute and think about everything we’re thankful for. So that’s the meaning of today’s post. To take a minute and reflect on the things that I’ve been thankful for in 2018.

Now, obviously I’m mostly thankful for the people and love in my life. My husband, my family and my friends. They mean the world. Buta post thanking them would end up being an incredibly mushy and sentimental post and since this is in fact a bookish blog, I instead decided to list some books and other forms of entertainment I am thankful for. Because cheesy as it sounds, I am thankful for these. They have helped me in so many ways, so I’m taking the time to spotlight them and tell you why I’m thankful. Let’s go!

Bookish Merchandise To Gift The Bookworm in Your Life (Especially If That Bookworm Is Me) {Top Ten Tuesday}

181113 Bookish merch2

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about that bookish merchandise! Because us bookworms don’t just love books, we love the bookish merch as well. Mostly to look at and admire from afar, because with those precious funds book could be bought instead, but once in a while a splurge could occur and one of these fun bookish items could be purchased. Or even better, gifted, because is there any gift more fun to give and receive than bookish merch?

So for fun’s sake, here’s some of the bookish merch on my wishlist 🙂

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today was all about backlist books I haven’t read yet, and well, since I’m so terribly behind on books and can’t keep up with my TBR to save my life, I thought it would be fun (haha, fun) to check out some of the books that were on my winter TBR, spring TBR, summer TBR and fall TBR posts for 2018 and I STILL haven’t read.

Join me for another walk of shame and feel free to tell me I really need to get to these soon 😉

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, Halloween is upon as again tomorrow and being as it’s my favorite holiday (and my birthday, so you can say I was born to be a Halloween fan, haha) it deserves to be celebrated!

I usually love spending this day by watching scary movies, reading books featuring supernatural creatures AND listening to my Halloween playlist. So since I already focused on the first two in previous Halloween posts, for today’s post I decided to share ten of my favorite Halloween songs.

I tried to list some of the lesser known songs and a mix of genres, so I hope you’ll discover some new additions to your own playlists! Happy listening and happy Halloween everybody!

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about villains! Now, I did  a post on my favorite villains a while back, so today I thought I’d highlight some of those villains that I love so much that I’m also kind of rooting for them to win. To me, the best villains are those that are delightfully morally gray, the ones that you can even understand and get where they are coming from. The ones you just want to hug and see luck be on their side. The ones who deserve to be loved, achieve success and get that win!

So without further ado, I present to you my top ten villains to root for from books, movies and TV:

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about BIG BOOKS. ‘Cause you know, I like big books and I cannot lie… except I am lying a little bit because even though I love big books they also intimidate me and I get frustrated when I spend too long on one book so I only read them sporadically… But I did read some big books in my life so far! Here are the biggest ones, according to Goodreads:

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today should have been about authors I’d love to meet but since I did that a while ago and skipped last week’s topic because I was busy moving and stuff, I’m cheating and doing that one now.

So today’s all about books by my favorite authors (yay!) that I haven’t read yet (oops). But despite whatever the reason is that I haven’t read these yet, I’m still totally planning on reading these!

So without further ado, here’s my list of shame:
