Book Review: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Book Review: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Book Reviews | December 16, 2013

After I met Samantha Shannon back in September, I was stoked to read this book. I mean, she is so sweet. So sweet. And she’s (just barely) younger than me, got a seven book deal, and is being called the new J.K. Rowling (which is completely unfair and incorrect, but I’ve covered that already). So then we decided […]

Adventures of a Bookworm in London

Adventures of a Bookworm in London

Food, Travel | December 15, 2013

Back in November, while I was on my break from the blog, I went to London. It was my third time going and by far the best trip so far. I’m so lucky to have my best friend living there, because he really knew the best places to take me to. So here’s a semi-short recap, if you’re […]

Graphic Novel Review: V for Vendetta

Graphic Novel Review: V for Vendetta

Book Reviews | December 13, 2013

I think most people are familiar with the story of V for Vendetta. I, like many others, have watched the movie, and I really really liked it. So when Gaby insisted on buying this for me as a late birthday gift, I was super excited. It’s one of those books that I’ve been meaning to read for a […]

Book Review: World After by Susan Ee

Book Reviews | December 11, 2013

Ever since I finished Angelfall right at the end of 2012, World After had been on my “OH MY GOD I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW” list. Imagine my surprise when I found it almost a month before its official release date in a bookstore in Amsterdam. I may have jumped and squealed in the store. […]

Book Review: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Book Reviews | December 9, 2013

Since around June I had been met on all sides with a chorus of “YOU HAVE TO READ SIEGE AND STORM!” and “READ IT! READ IT NOWWWWWWW!” and “OH MY GOD BUT STURMHOND LIKE SRSLY READ NOW” … yeah. The Grisha fangirls are intense. Seriously. And I dislike hype. I mean, I get that you guys are excited […]

Sinterklaas 101

Sinterklaas 101

Lifestyle | December 8, 2013

While I, personally, celebrate Christmas, the Dutch, generally, usually celebrate Sinterklaas! Especially for families with young children, Sinterklaas is the holiday of choice, though they may switch to Christmas when the kids grow up. But anyway, with so many Dutchies in the blogging community, I thought it’d be nice to share something about our holiday with you guys. […]

Book Haul #4: The Week of Auto-Approval

Book Haul #4: The Week of Auto-Approval

Uncategorized | December 7, 2013

Yep, I’m switching to periodical book hauls instead of monthly, because, well, it’s December 7th, and I have 12 books to show – despite not having bought anything. Soooo I’d rather have smaller book hauls so that I actually have room to talk about them a bit more 🙂 For Review This week I got auto-approval from Harper […]
