After reading the A Court of Thorns and Roses series (well, only the first two books actually) I thought that it became about time to get myself involved in the Throne of Glass series as well. So last Thursday I ordered them!
I’m afraid words cannot describe my love for this series and the woman behind them, Sarah J. Maas. So I think this review will be quite messy, but I’m going to do my best to give you a slight idea of my great, great love for this book.
Somewhere in the past few months I saw an instagram post of somebody’s reading journal (don’t know who it was anymore!) and that made me want to begin my own. Just to have a better overview of the books I read per month. I like to keep track of all the books I read and it makes me quite happy to see how many books (and pages) I’ve read. The more books I read the better!
Finally, the sweaty weather has left and sweather weather has arrived! It’s Autumn! That means that it gets dark earlier in the day; I can finally wear my favourite knitwears and burn all the candles; drink a lot of hot drinks and read my books underneath the fluffiest blankets. Where I like to be cozy and warm on the one side, I actually like to be cold as well. It makes me feel the cold touch my fingers, nose and legs. It makes me feel alive.
All is well and merry. That is, until I can’t feel my fingers anymore and all I want to be is at home, curled up against my boyfriend, with a purring cat warming my feet. So, not being able to feel your fingers anymore is a good thing right? Now you can look forward to getting warm again. At least, that’s what I like to think.
Besides reading, one of my favourite hobbies is drawing. So it’s really a shame I don’t do it that often anymore. When I was a little kid I always lent a lot of ‘how-to-draw’ books in the library and with them I could entertain myself the whole weekend. One of my all time favourite drawing books is Art for Kids: Drawing by Kathryn Temple. Whenever this book was available, I lent it! And now, after lots and lots of years, I finally have it in my possession!
I’ve read a lot of good books in 2016 and there are many to be read still. In this post I’m going to give you my top 5 of the 60 books I’ve read in the past nine months.
Now that my book buying ban is over (yay!) I can freely buy all the books I want again. Hah, just kidding, I’m still a poor student. But that doesn’t mean I can’t buy any books at all, because there are these amazing shops and markets where you can buy books for the ridiculous price of €1,-! So I did and I bought four new old books which I will tell more about down below.
Since it’s October (already), I’m planning on reading spooky, thrilling books in the coming month. Because, you know, HALLOWEEN IS COMING. Although we don’t really celebrate it in the Netherlands, I just wanted to do my own halloweeny things. Like reading scary books, watching spooky movies and decorating my room a little. Today I show you some of the books I want to read in October!
