Graphic Novels: The Jump off the Deep End (and the start of an addiction)

A few months ago I had NEVER read a graphic novel or a comic. I had been curious for a while, wanted to try my hand at them, but was incredibly intimidated with the vast amount of titles out there. So I asked around in the blogging community for recommendations, googled things like ‘where to start if you want to read graphic novels’ and here we are, a few months later. I think I might’ve developed a slight addiction, because right now I’ve already gone through Saga volume 1 to 5, The Wicked + The Divine volume 1 and 2, Ms. Marvel volume 1, I’m halfway through Nimona and I have the first volume of Lumberjanes lined up for when I’ve finished that.

Monthly Recap: September 2015

I cannot believe it is October already! September just FLEW BY. It was a good month though. September marked the end of summer, and I am so happy to get back to a regular schedule, 3 months of doing nothing was getting incredibly boring… Also, September 20th was my 21th birthday. I got to review Rae Carson’s awesome new book, and I participated in quite some running events (see below), and I joined a running association (see below)!

How to Celebrate your Birthday with Friends Overseas

I’ve been blogging for 2,5 year now and it’s been quite the journey. And while I love every single part of blogging, if there’s one thing I love most it is the people I met through it. While they can’t always be here in person for this day, be it that they already had plans, or be it that they live on the other side of the pond and live so far away that…

Monthly Recap: August 2015

I met up with Dani from Dani Reviews Things in Amsterdam The first part of August I was still in Germany. We visited Potsdam and Berlin and later on visited an uncle in Poland. The weather in Sweden hadn’t been really nice (no kidding, it was freaking cold). I packed tons of summer clothes and only a few warm clothes, but I ended up wearing my warm clothes. We decided to go to Germany where the weather was going to be really nice and I actually got to wear the shorts and tank tops I’d packed for the trip. Yay. The day after I got home I decided to meet up with Dani from Dani Reviews Things. I met her through the Air Awakens Street Team I’m a part of…
