BookTube-A-Thon 2018 TBR

I’m going to participate in my first ever readathon! I’m really excited to play along in the BookTube-A-Thon, which is taking place from July 30th to August 5th.

What is the BookTube-A-Thon?

The BookTube-A-Thon is a week-long readathon hosted by Ariel Bissett. She describes it as an opportunity for the bookish community to come together, to celebrate reading by creating bookish content and reading lots of books!

I think a lot of participants are active on BookTube, which I am not.. So, I’ll be tracking my progress on Twitter, Instagram and on my blog.

First Lines Friday – Grace & Fury by Tracy Banghart

Happy Fri-yay!

I haven’t been very active on my blog, Twitter or Instagram last week. This is because we have a new family member, Fancy the parakeet! He is amazing, cute and I love playing with him. Taming a parakeet isn’t that hard, but it does take a lot of time and patience. I’m having so much fun with it and Fancy makes me really happy!

Today I’m participating in the Book Beginnings meme hosted by Rose City ReaderBook Beginnings is a weekly tag that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

What is the first line of the book I am currently reading?

June Wrap-up

June was a great month and I did some really fun things. On June 8th I celebrated my birthday and a week later the Boyfriend & I went on a city trip to Prague. I’ve spend a lot of time outside this month, since the weather was amazing. Also I went shopping for a wedding dress and I’ve send out some job application letters.. Exciting!

Unfortunately I didn’t read as much as I had planned this month.. You can see what was on my June TBR here.

Juni was een geweldige maand en ik heb een aantal er leuke dingen gedaan. 8 Juni vierde ik mijn verjaardag en een week later ging ik met mijn vriend op vakantie in Praag. Ik ben deze maand veel buiten geweest, want het was ontzettend lekker weer. Ook ben ik gaan winkelen voor een trouwjurk en heb ik een aantal sollicitaties de deur uit gedaan.. Spannend!

Helaas heb ik deze maand niet zo veel gelezen als dat ik had gepland. Je kunt hier mijn TBR voor Juni vinden.

Let’s take a look at the books I’ve read and bought in June!
