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!

August 2018 Wrap Up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my August wrap up!

August has been good – the weather has cooled off and the month has seemed to fly by faster because of it. I did manage to read a few good books, but highlights this month definitely happened on the music and movie front (Gee, what could it be? This is not predictable AT ALL…) Oh, and I got accepted for my first blog tour for one of my favorite authors so I’m pretty pleased overall <3

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is all around the theme ‘Back To School’. And since I am currently still in love with the Netflix adaptation of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, I figured I would list some of the other books I love featuring romances set in high school or college. So if you need a romance as cute as Lara Jean and Peter K.’s, and love the nostalgia of a school setting, why don’t you give one of the following a try?

July 2018: The Month Of Fluffy Reads, The Fab Five & A Korean Odyssey {Monthly Wrap Up}

July 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my July wrap up!

Honesly, my July felt like it lasted foreeever. Why that is, I’m not sure, because I did feel like I did a lot of things, but time just didn’t seem to go by at all. Perhaps it has something to do with the weather, since we’ve been in a heatwave pretty much all month and the high temperatures are making everything feel slow. Though I didn’t read that much, I did get to read 2 new books and re-read 2 old favorites, so I’m happy about that. I also watched quite some TV and listened to some new music. So let’s just dive in: here’s what I did in July!

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Now I usually say I read a lot of different genres, but when it comes down to it, I’m a fantasy girl all the way. Give me all the magic and kingdoms and dragons and I am happy. But there is something about summer. When those first rays of sunshine hit I get this slightly cliché but still unavoidable and gigantic craving for fluff. ALL THE FLUFF. Give me the romance. Give me the summer trips and crushes and roadtrips and walks on the beach. But mostly, give me all the fluff. So basically, here is my beautiful fluffy summer 2018 TBR:

Series I Want To Continue But Need To Re-Read First Because I Have Goldfish Brain {Top Ten Tuesday}

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s topic is about books I like but can’t remember much about. Which, for me, is basically over half of all books I read over 5-6 months ago. Now, usually this isn’t much of a problem. EXCEPT when I want to read a series and there is a WHOLE YEAR or more in between books. Though I remember big lines, all the finer details and elements that make up the intricacy of the characters and plot are just… gone. And because I don’t want to lessen my reading experience, that means I need to re-read. See why I prefer binge-reading series?

Anyway, here are some examples of series which I really do want to continue, but that I first need to re-read because I have goldfish brain:

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

In honor of Thanksgiving week in the US, today is all about being thankful. More specifically, what books we are thankful for.

Now, I’m thankful for a lot of books. For lots of reasons. So narrowing this down was… tough. I decided to split it into categories as to why I am thankful for a book in particular, which came a little easier for me. But I would just like to note that some of these books definitely fit into more than one categorie. And I am probably forgetting a lot of books as well. But anyway, here it goes!
