Waanzinnige Plannen by Marcel van Driel | Book review

        I’m going to do something new here. Some time ago I went to a lecture by a writer that I follow on twitter: Marcel van Driel. This writer is Dutch, as am I as most of you know. I was very impressed by the lecture and when I was offered the chance to read and review the book itself it wasn’t something that took much thought. I commented and here I am writing my review. Because this is a Dutch book, I will post this review in English as well as in Dutch. I’ll start with telling you about the lecture. The lecture was interesting, inspiring and memorable. Those characteristics are what, in my opinion, make a good lecture. Do you know those plans you…

The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise | Book Review

First time I heard about The Boyfriend App my interest was peeked. So when the book finally arrived I was so disappointed I couldn’t immediately start reading it! My exams were about to start and I needed my head a 100% focussed on those said exams. Cause as much as I love reading I know myself really well, and once I start reading I won’t stop till I have finished the book. So I had to wait… and now my exams are finally over!

I think the thing I…

Trouble is, he doesn’t know how horrible I am at sports!” “But what if he ran a drug cartel? Or sweat shops in Asia? Or what if he had a refrigerator full of heads in his basement?” “What you and Paul had was electric, like lightning. But lightning can strike twice in the same place, you know. Trust me, no kidding! I read it on the Internet!” She chuckled, “ And we all know everything…

The Elite by Kiera Cass | Book Review

I’m just gonna say this first: WOMAN! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU! PICK MAXON ALREADY! Now we’ve gotten this out of the way I can continue with the actual review. This book had me on an emotional roller-coaster ride (as if the sentence above isn’t proof enough of that). The Elite was mostly what I thought is was going to be: romantic, exciting, but I think most of all conflicting and confusing. I still think the entire Selection itself is kind of ridiculous. I mean girls competing for a guy’s heart? That’s a bit sick… You shouldn’t have to compete with other girls for a guys heart. I mean, in the Elite there are six girls left and Maxon does god knows what with those girls…
