This post recaps my month: my personal life, the fun and not so fun; books I’ve read; movies/ tv shows I’ve watched; and all other things worth mentioning. I have no other word for September than ‘busy’. September carried so many new opportunities and experiences for me. It was tiring in many ways as new experiences usually are, but also incredibly exciting and fun! Let me recap it all for you. September marked the end of my summer break and the start of my internship at Overamstel Publishers! I worked alongside my study, but I never worked a full-time job before, so I knew it was going to be challenging.

It has been a while since I joined the #bookstagram scene and now I’ve settled into a comfortable Instagram routine I thought it would be fun to share some of my do’s and don’ts.

The beginning of the June I was extremely stressed for my Strategic Management & Leadership resit. I studied hard and long for that test, imagine my relief (and happiness) when I got my grade last week and saw I scored a 7 out of…

I’ve read some of Cora Carmack’s previous work, which mainly consists of swoon-worthy New Adult books. As this is her first Young Adult novel, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from Roar, except that the premise sounded amazing. After finishing that very first chapter I knew it was going to be good, and the story did not disappoint for one single second. From that first chapter and onwards I was hooked. Roar blew me away! The plot is complex, layered, and really well done. When I thought I’d finally figured something out, new parts were exposed that were a whole new mystery. The slow reveal allows for lots of anticipation suspense. I love how I had to crack my brain to see if I could find out what was going to happen…
