Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

It’s important to note that I’m sitting down to write my review of The Mime Order roughly three weeks after finishing the book. The reason for this is quite simply that I was stunned, speechless, and didn’t know how I could possibly convey in words just how amazing this book (and this series) is. How do you do epic perfection justice?? HOWW???? HELP ME, BENNYKINS. OKAY THANK YOU. In the interest of full disclosure, I have met Samantha Shannon and we are Twitter friends. Seriously, she’s a super awesome, amazing, generous person, but I don’t feel like that should invalidate my opinion that I think […]

Top Ten Characters I Wish Would Get Their OWN Book

Top Ten Characters I Wish Would Get Their OWN Book

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I’m not gonna lie, this was a really hard topic for me! It took quite some time with my thinking cap on, quite some head scratching, and even now I’m not sure I’m 100% satisfied with my list. See, oftentimes when there is an awesome secondary character, those characters get novellas! Or if there’s a secondary character I LOVE, I haven’t finished the series yet, so I’m not sure about their fate. Seriously, my brain needs to stop with this perfectionism because it’s ridiculous. This list […]

One Year of Book Club!

One Year of Book Club!

It’s somewhat hard for me to imagine, but roughly one year ago, I decided to take my book nerdiness to the next level. I’d come to know and meet quite a few YA book bloggers here in the Netherlands, and as you all know: bookish people are the best people. I reached out to them nervously, wondering if they would want to start a book club, and in no time we were regularly meeting, once a month, to discuss books and blogging and plenty of stuff outside those spheres. Though we started out as seven, we were quickly whittled down to 4 members, but I’m […]

Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I’m not gonna lie, this is a pretty tough topic for me. A lot of the real locations in books that I’ve read that are the most majestic, I’ve already been to. (Think Paris, London, New York…) And a lot of the fictional worlds, fantasy/sci-fi, are so caught up in wars, rebellions, or scary monsters that I don’t necessarily want to be there. Yes, once again, I’m taking a topic way too literally, but whatever, this is how I roll. Cue a pretty clichéd list. Real […]

Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon

Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Looking up books for this list, I realize that most romances that I love are more of the awwwwwww and flail-worthy types than swoooooon-y types. There is a difference, okay? Swoonful romances I interpret as less “cutesy” and more sexy and irresistible. So. There’s that. Semantics but whatever. I clearly just needed some justification for not putting Adorkable on this list. 1. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller Prepare to see this book on a looooot of TTTs from now on. But oh my […]

2013 End of Year Book Survey

2013 End of Year Book Survey

This survey was created by the lovely Jamie at the Perpetual Page-Turner! It might be a bit late, but I absolutely didn’t want to do it before the year was over, in case the last couple reads were absolutely amazing. So, yeah. Late, maybe. But I regret nothing. (I’ll have a personal review of 2013 later involving blog statistics, but that’ll be way late because I want to get my reviews reformatted first.) Best in Books 2013 1. Best book you read in 2013? I read 93 books this year. I already cheated on the TTT of this topic and made it 20 books. And […]
