The Books I Want to Read in January

January TBR

First of all.. Happy New Year! I wish you a wonderful 2019 filled with joy, amazing books and love.

My goal is to read 52 books this year, one for each week. This month I hope to read 5 books, that would be a good start.

My biggest goal, or focus point, for 2019 is to do more things that make me happy. I want to spend more time with the people I love, read more, start a new course and keep up with my blog.

Let’s take a look at my January TBR!

The Books I Want to Read in September

September TBR

It’s already September.. Where did the months go? This year is flying by.

For this month I don’t have a lot of things planned, but since I only just started my new job three weeks ago, I’m going to make a realistic TBR for September. I hope to read 1 book each week and I plan on reading a couple of my e-ARC’s.

Let’s take a look at my September TBR!

August Wrap-up

August wrap-up

August was such a fun month and the weeks went so fast.. I started my new job! I’m now working in a secretarial role at a high school. I was very excited and a bit scared to start, because this job is so different from what I did before (I’m a social worker and I worked with teenagers with behavioral and psychiatric problems). I do like it, though!

Also the Boyfriend and I went to a Flogging Molly concert and we went on a beer tasting day-trip to Haarlem (we visited Uiltje and Jopen brewery-bars).

And.. I read some books!

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

July Wrap-up

July Wrap-up

July was a wonderful month. We’ve been to a Guns ‘n Roses concert and to a food truck festival. The concert was amazing and the food at the festival was delicious (I had sushi and Indonesian food). Also we have a new family member, Fancy the budgie! He is such a cute and happy little bird and he makes me smile every day.

Also July was the month of the heatwave.. I live in the south of the Netherlands and while I’m writing this post it’s 36 °C outside and it has been like this for over a week now. That’s just too hot to get things done and I’ve been taking things slow.

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