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

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

I'm in the middle of my summer vacation and I'm LOVING it. I have all the time to relax and do all the things I love; reading, gaming, diamond painting, meeting friends.
I've been to the Czech Republic for 12 days and that was lovely as well. It's a beautiful country and we were in nature a lot. We have been hiking and it was the perfect vacation, because I didn't want to be in crowded places, so it all worked out.
I have another 1,5 week of vacation and after that I'll prep the classroom for the new school year. I'm excited about that. I really hope a second COVID wave will not hit us and the schools can stay open this school year.

I hope you're having a great summer.
Stay safe, stay healthy, keep reading!

Reed Royal has it all—looks, status, money. The girls at his elite prep school line up to date him, the guys want to be him, but Reed never gave a damn about anyone but his family until Ella Harper walked into his life.

What started off as burning resentment and the need to make his father’s new ward suffer turned into something else entirely—keep Ella close. Keep Ella safe. But when one foolish mistake drives her out of Reed’s arms and brings chaos to the Royal household, Reed’s entire world begins to fall apart around him.

Ella doesn’t want him anymore. She says they’ll only destroy each other.

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.
