Shelfie Sunday is a new blog meme on Cafe Manon. I was thinking about a way to showcase my books, but my bookcase isn’t pretty like some of the bookcases I adore seeing on Pinterest or Instagram.. So, I decided to cheat a bit and create ‘shelf-categories’.
Today I’m sharing my first shelf-category, which is Red Books.
Curious to know more about the books on my Red Books Shelf?
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.

1 – Let a coin toss decide your first read.
2 – Read a book about something you want to do.

Want to know what is on my TBR?
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!
This week I received my first Illumicrate book box! Illumicrate is a subscription box that that sends you new books plus bookish items that are fun, beautiful and geeky. The theme for this box was ‘Hidden Talents’.
What I knew about this box when I ordered it;
- The book will be an exclusive edition.
- The items in the box will be inspired by Fangirl, Shadowhunters, Percy Jackson, Black Panther and Avatar: The Last Airbender.
- And included is an advanced reader copy. It’s the start of a new series by a bestselling author, and its not out until October 2018!
