Mini reviews: Pottermore Presents

Hello!

Since I’m currently very inactive here due to school and the difficulties I face with it, I decided to post mini reviews for the Pottermore Presents books. As one instead of thee separate ones. Besides them, I haven’t very much read anything. I’m quite sad about that, too.

Me and my best friend Rianne decided to split the bill, so we could read them both on her Kindle, since I don’t have Kindle and can’t order from Amazon. I’m so grateful Pottermore decided to publish these short stories. Lees verder

Bands I’m dying to see live

As you may have figured out, it’s not Tuesday anymore. I was ill yesterday, still kind of, and that’s why I didn’t post a TTT. I just didn’t have the energy, but I’ve got some more now. Rather late than never, right?

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. This week’s topic is audio freebie and I wanted to show you all the amazing bands!

I’m sure I’ve forgotten some, but I can’t think of anymore right now.

What band do you want to see live?

Books I so wish I could read again for the first time

Thanks to my professor (do I call him teacher or professor?) at uni we were allowed to leave earlier. Lucky us, because we had class in a classroom without airconditioning and it was around 32 degrees outside.  Let me tell you, it was hot. Very hot. It was insane.

I know I’m kind of late with my TTT, but it’s still Tuesday, so there’s that! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. This week’s topic is: all time favorite books. THERE ARE SO MANY. WHY MUST YOU DO THIS?! I’m not going to think. I’m just going to do this. Without order, of course.

1. The Fault in Our Stars

This is the only book I’ve read twice. Why? Because I don’t have time to re-read books and because this books makes me feel better. Hazel is so positive and that gives me hope. It gives me hope that there is good in this world, that people can achieve things and just be there.

2. Divergent

I remember reading this because the movie was going to come out soon and I loved the trailer. The book murdered me. The whole series to be honest. I know there are mixed feelings about this, but I truly loved it. I loved the concept about facing your fears. Divergent also gave me hope that there is a possibility of achieving your goals even when you’re terrified and that stayed with me.

3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

One word is enough to explain this: Remadora. Well, not the sad parts of course. I’m still not over that. Lees verder

Let’s watch all the tv shows

Today, on this Tuesday, I get to write about my other love: tv shows! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. This week’s topic is Tv Shows.

I watch so many shows, so I’m currently behind on most of them, because I’m watching Dutch shows right now. It’s a hectic life, haha, but worth it. 😉

September TBR + more

Every time when it’s the beginning of a month, I’m like: wait what? Where is the previous month? It all seems like it’s flying by so fast.

My holiday is over. I’ve had no school for three months, so bear with me, because I’m starting college this Monday. I hope all will be fine.

Want to read

I hope I manage to read some books, since I have absolutely no idea how college will turn out. Perhaps I’ll be really busy or perhaps I won’t. We’ll just have to see, so I’m starting small and I can always add some more or buy some more.

  1. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
  2. Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
  3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
  4. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Happening this month

  • I’m a college student! I can’t believe that either, because it took me so long, but still, I made it, so that’s the most important thing. The introduction starts on Monday September 5 and I guess classes start a week after that. It’s all very exciting and very nerve-wrecking.
  • Touring/exploring/visiting. One of the benefits of being a college student in The Netherlands is that you get to use the public transport for free. Lucky us! It’s funny though, because if you want to follow a higher education, you need to travel. I guess that’s why they did it.
    I definitely want to go to Amsterdam again, mainly to visit Waterstones (the only one in The Netherlands) and the ABC Store, but also to visit the Vondelpark. Amsterdam is great.

Are you looking forward to September? What are you going to read?
