After much deliberation I've decided to give this year's Booktubeathon a try (although I already know I'm going to fail miserably). If you don't know what Booktubeathon is, I'd recommend you viewing some of the video's on the official Booktubathon channel! Down below you can find the books I chose for this year's challenge!
Although I kind of had declared myself to be on a book buying ban, I still bought a book. Sorry wallet! The other book I got for free from a friend I met on instagram, how sweet! Once again, a book haul full of King books. Read further for the blurbs and my thoughts.
It’s time for the unboxing July’s The Nocturnal Reader’s Box! The box was, once again, filled to the brim with awesome, and useful, goodies! It’s such a pity that the shipping costs to the Netherlands is so high, otherwise I’d subscribe to this box every month. (Maybe, later, when I’m rich …) Read further to get the details on the goodies that were included in this month’s box!
I see so many gorgeous and/or awesome bookish merchandise coming by on instagram lately, that I just had to share with you guys! Here are five things that I’d love to have, but can’t afford at the moment. (I really hope this won’t become a “Oh I’m so poor” whine post, so sorry in advance)

This is just a quick reminder that my giveaway on Murder in Little Shendon by A.H. Richardson is up on my instagram! Just look for the same photo as pictured above, or click here, follow the rules and you may just be the lucky winner of this cozy murder mystery!
This week was full of new books: I got two ARC’s in the mail and I bought another at a bookmarket for only €3,-! On the one hand it feels good to have new books on my shelves, really good, but on the other hand it makes my TBR pile even the more … scary. This week I finished three books, but today’s book haul just added three more. So, my TBR pile is still as scary as it was. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the three latest additions to my shelves!
