One of the plussides of having a job is earning money to buy books with (who needs food anyway?), and so this is already my third book haul of the month September! There’s still another book on its way, but because I ordered it via the Book Depository I think it’ll take a while before it’s here! Nevertheless, here are my four latest additions to my shelves and also another bookish thing, that every booknerd needs in their life!
Recently I was chosen as a rep for the lovely business The Book Matchmaker, located in Shrewsbury, UK. Last Thursday I received my first bookish blind date and Saturday I was finally able to peek inside the gorgeous wrapping! Read further to discover what book I’ll have a blind date with soon!

After seeing and reading a lot about the TV show called Gilmore Girls on bookstagram, I recently fell in love with the cozy show myself. I love the characters and the fact that Rory is an avid reader, like myself. I’ve seen people talking about this reading challenge inspired by the books that are featured in the show. It consists of a total of 339 books (!) and I’ve made it a personal goal to eventually read all the books on this list, mostly because a lot of the books on there are books that have been on my TBR for a long time or because I feel like I just have to read them someday.

Yesterday evening, after months of patiently *cough* waiting for IT to premiere, I finally went to see this film in theatre. I went together with my boyfriend to the theatre in Zwolle and it was quite the experience, once again. It was nothing, but also everything I had imagined it to be. I’ll try to write down my thoughts, so that they’ll make sense to you, but be warned. IT WAS AMAZING, and I’m afraid this post will end up a mess anyways.
