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

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

The month October has been a lot about working for me. As a (baby)sitter and in the library as well. Last week I had so called performance review, because I had a contract for two months. And now it's been extended to a year! I'm happy because my job in the library makes me happy. Also, FALL is what I love. Nature looks gorgeous and seeing the trees and forests gives me so much joy.

My time with the boy that I (baby)sit is so fun as well. We do all kinds of fun stuff like sleepovers, big playgrounds and we went to the cinema and swimming. He is so happy all the time and that makes me happy too.

On another note, I have something serious to talk about on my blog. And I'm really looking to talk to you all about this and to hear your opinion. I have been thinking about taking a blogging break. I feel like it costs me a lot of time and energy that I want to put in real life right now. (Like right now, this post is costing me 30 mins + that I would love to spend reading...)
Did you feel like this at some point? What did you do? Do you have some good advice for me? My blog is my baby and my audience is what does give me energy; connecting with you all. Talking about books, visiting your blogs, reading about your lives and our common passion: reading and books.
So I do want to continue, but the blogging break has been in my mind for a long time... I've also been thinking about just writing a weekly wrap up (maybe a Sunday Post?) of what I've been reading, watching and stuff like that, and maybe not write long reviews anymore? It might be something I am willing to try before officially taking a break.. So many thoughts... Help me out?! πŸ’—


Thanks for sticking with my blog and for reading!
Have a great month with loads of beautiful fall leaves.

Synopsis
At first glance, Natalie Cavanaugh and Glenn Abbott hardly look like sisters. Even off-duty, Natalie dresses like a Boston cop, preferring practical clothes and unfussy, pinned-up hair. Her younger sister, Glenn, seems tailor-made for the spotlight, from her signature red mane to her camera-ready smile. Glenn has spent years cultivating her brand through her baking blog, and with the publication of her new book, that hard work seems about to pay off. But her fans have no idea about the nightmare in Glenn and Natalie’s past.

Twenty years ago, their father’s body was discovered in the woods behind their house. A trauma like that doesn’t fit with Glenn’s public image. Yet, maybe someone reading her blog does know something. There have been anonymous online messages, vague yet ominous, hinting that she’s being watched. And with unsettling coincidences hitting ever closer to home, both Glenn and Natalie soon have more pressing matters to worry about, especially when a dead body is found in an abandoned building . . .

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

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

September was a great month! The most fun and important thing was me starting at my new job. I've had a great first month. I'm working in libraries and schools with teachers and children. The main goal is to improve reading pleasure and reading motivation. I've been spending most of my workdays in between reading shelves, picking out books, promoting books and doing all kinds of fun things in schools!

It's so much fun to read more Children's Books, since I've been reading YA and all ages above the last few years. I feel like I really want to be able to tell the children in the schools more about the books I'm bringing, so I'm also trying to read a lot of those books. I will definitely make a segment about it on my blog! I have tons of inspiration and have already read so many good books.

This was also the month that the season of my favorite sport is starting again. I've been playing handball for 19 years and it feels great to be back on the field!

September is the month of my birthday. Chapter 31, is what they say nowadays? I got loads of books, because I made a Wishlist and I'm very happy about that. I will, of course, show of my new books in this post.

Thanks for sticking with my blog and for reading!
Have a great month where the first fall leaves peep out.

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

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

This was a bit more of a quiet month. I was sick for a whole week, so that did make me not post as much. I also went out to do a lot of fun things so reading was a bit more on the backburner this month.

These were the final weeks of my vacation. I actually found a new job at the library! I'm going to do projects at several schools to make more kids read and also teach about media. So as of tomorrow I will be a Reading and Media Coach for the library. I'm very excited and curious to start working.

I will also keep my babysitting job. That will make for a nice mix of working for the library 3 days and then babysitting one or two days a week. I feel like that will really balance out my working time and my free time.

One of the highlights this month was me and my boyfriend gong to Gent; such a beautiful place in Belgium. We had some lovely food with great Belgian beers. We bought chocolate and visited the castle. Overall it was just really nice to spend the weekend away together!
I also went a night away with a friend on a Bookcation. We both read The Apple Tart of Hope. Which was an amazing book, and my friend Kirsten also made a lovely Apple tart to eat while reading!
I did many, many more fun things like Geocaching with my mom and a day away with friends to Amsterdam to have some lovely hotpot and a night at a ping-pong bar!

The most exciting thing to come up is my birthday on September 13th! I always find it such a joyful day, to have friends and family come over and just enjoy time together!

Thanks for sticking with my blog and for reading!
Have a great month with loads of great books.

Synopsis
Dave and his two best friends, Hannah and Curtis, are looking forward to a summer of complete freedom, but their parents have another idea: they insist that the three teenagers get summer jobs. But the friends come up with a plan: Why not invent fake jobs to get their parents off their backs? The trouble is, their parents are going to want to see them bringing in real money. And that means finding a way to get-rich-quick, but without breaking the law, and without doing any actual work.

The summer passes and Dave, Curtis, and Hannah try a long list of schemes: trying to catch bank robbers to win the reward; scientifically calculating the “correct” number of jelly beans in a contest jar; finding and exploring a network of underground smugglers' tunnels; and even diving for sunken treasure. But “Project Pay Day” never quite goes according to plan, and they don’t make the money they need. Soon summer is almost over, and they have no choice but to solve a big local mystery — or face the consequences of their actions, which includes their parents breaking up the trio for good!

Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose—to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.

As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion—one that could set them both free, if they’d only let it.

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

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

This month was a month of saying goodbye to the job I've had for 10 years. I've worked at the same school for so many years and because of my move I'm quitting the job! Luckily for me I've been talking with a project for Libraries at Schools, so hopefully something will come of it. 

Summer holiday has begun for me. I've been just doing what I want, relaxing and working on myself and my physical and mental health.

One of the most fun things this month is me babysitting this cute 10 year old boy who also stays the night every now and then. We have so much fun!

Not much other news, other than me going way overboard with my haul AGAIN. Well, let's just say that money can't buy happiness but it can buy books!

Thanks for sticking with my blog and for reading!
Have a great month with loads of relaxing and good books.

Soon to be divorced, attorney Nora Linde is finding her way as a single mother, and even falling in love again, when she’s asked by her childhood friend Detective Thomas Andreasson to help in a disturbing investigation. Marcus Nielsen, a university student, has apparently committed suicide, but it’s what he’s left behind that’s so suspicious and damning: his research into the Coastal Rangers, an elite military group where, in 1976, a young cadet died under questionable circumstances, a sadistic sergeant went free, and a case went cold.

When two of Nielsen’s contacts are also found dead—and diaries of their tortuous training turn up missing—Thomas and Nora are certain that whatever happened three decades ago is unforgivable. And for someone who wants to keep those secrets buried—unforgettable. Now they must fight against time to expose a cover-up that hasn’t yet claimed its last victim.

Rescued by Leith and the crew of the Nuria, Ayla discovers a far evolved world of space ships and galactic colonization. But everything comes with a price, and though Ayla is no princess locked in an icy tower, she still has to pay for the rescue she didn’t know she needed.

Given over to Leith, a darkly handsome man who reads Ayla far easier than she’d like, they must work together if Ayla is to repay her debt. As the pair come to learn how dangerous one another are, so too grows a lustful bond that comes with rules of its own. Fighting to learn why she was frozen, Ayla’s dragged into Leith’s past with a criminal organization seeking to take over this sector of the galaxy. In order to survive, Leith will need Ayla’s help, but Ayla doesn’t know if she’s willing to pay what it will cost her…
