I'm Gone! (for 2 weeks)

Welcome, welcome my dear readers.
Welcome to the blog.

I'm so glad that I'm able to go on a nice camping trip with my BF, I know not everybody is that fortunate yet with the current health situation.
It's been raining in The Netherlands for over a week, so we put our tent in the car and are going to drive towards the sun. We've checked different countries on the situation with COVID-19 so we know what countries we can visit.
Our plan is to drive towards Czech Republic and we'll be gone for two weeks.

Stay safe, enjoy your summer.
I'll speak to you all in two weeks!

Review: Burn

Patrick Ness
Started reading: June 7th 2020
Finished the book: June 29th 2020
Pages: 371
Genres: Fantasy, YA
Published: June 2nd 2020
Source: Received from a friend
Goodreads score: 4.00
My score:

Sarah Dewhurst and her father, outcasts in their little town of Frome, Washington, are forced to hire a dragon to work their farm, something only the poorest of the poor ever have to resort to.
The dragon, Kazimir, has more to him than meets the eye, though. Sarah can’t help but be curious about him, an animal who supposedly doesn’t have a soul, but who is seemingly intent on keeping her safe.
Because the dragon knows something she doesn’t. He has arrived at the farm with a prophecy on his mind. A prophecy that involves a deadly assassin, a cult of dragon worshippers, two FBI agents in hot pursuit—and somehow, Sarah Dewhurst herself.

June Wrap up - Book Haul & What to Expect Next Month

Welcome, welcome my dear readers.
Welcome to the blog.

Life is mostly back to normal here, and I'm so glad for it!
I was able to go for lunch, or dinner in a restaurant a couple of times and I do hope to go on a summer vacation somewhere in Germany or France.
We'll just take a nice little road trip with our tent and check where the sun is and go there. I'm very aware that life is not back to normal everywhere and I know a lot of bloggers who still have to work from home or are in lockdown. I really feel for you all! I do hope things will gradually get back to normal...

The school year is almost over! 3 more days of work and Summer Break will start. I have a 5th/6th Grade class this year. 6th Graders leave Primary School to go to High School, so they are allowed to perform a nice musical for the school and the parents. I'll be busy organizing that the next two nights.
On Friday we'll have a nice high tea together and I will wave them goodbye and wish them all the best for the years to come. It's usually a very emotional moment for the kids!

I hope you will all have a great summer, regardless where you're spending the time. I wish you loads of great books and sunshine!
