Wie ben ik?

Ik ben een 22 jarige voeding & diëtetiek student aan de HAN in Nijmegen. Ik houd sinds ik mij kan herinneren van lezen en schrijven. De laatste paar jaar is de interesse en snelheid van het lezen toegenomen. Ik heb niet specifiek één genre wat ik leuk vind, ik lees Fantasy, Crime, Chicklit, Reizen. Van alles eigenlijk. Ik ben deze blog begonnen omdat ik zelf wat Engelse/Amerikaanse booktubers volg. Maar ik niet echt Nederlandse boekbloggers heb gevonden, behalve grotere organisaties zoals MustReads en Chicklit. De laatste neem ik regelmatig een kijkje. Wel heb ik Nederlandse boektubers gevonden. Ik schrijf deze blog in het Nederlands, maar ik lees mijn boeken over het algemeen in het Engels, waarom? Omdat ik graag het origineel lees, ik ben ook van plan om Duitse boeken te lezen, in dit geval lees ik eerst de vertaling en daarna het Duits. Dit omdat mijn Duits niet goed is, maar ik wel de uitdaging aan wil gaan om het te lezen. Niet in het jaar 2016 , want ik wil dit jaar 38 boeken lezen.

Wat ik naast lezen doe? Ik zing in supergezellig studentenpopkoor, ik ben serie-verslaafd en ik kijk graag film en ik probeer elke dag 15-20 minuten yoga te doen. Ik kook en bak graag en natuurlijk eet ik dat dan ook graag op! Wat ik dit jaar (vaker) wil doen, is vaker naar musea. Ik vind Cultuur opsnuiven leuk en ik vind eigenlijk toch wel dat ik de grote musea in Nederland gezien moet hebben. Ik ben nog nooit naar het Rijksmuseum geweest dus het lijkt mij prima om daar mee te beginnen,

Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis

Khosa, like all the woman in the family became for her, is destined to give birth to one child and then dance into the sea. To save Stille. But she doesn’t want to die, nor she wants to be touched.

Vincent is the third in line to the throne, his grandfather still rules although he is very old. His father can’t wait to be the next king, unlike Vincent, who doesn’t want to be king at all.
Darah is not a normal girl, she is one of the last Indiri, people with magic and who are feared by others. She wants to find another male to breed with so she won’t die as the last of her kind.
Witt is the head of the people of Pietra, the Lithos and he is the chosen one to lead the sick and old to the paths of death.
This book had so much potential, but I did not like it at all. In this world it is okay to rape a woman, and you earn right the right to breed when you have a pure bloodline. Like horses. The author didn’t that much worldbuilding, I have no clue where what place lies, a map would have come …

Forest of Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

Fairyloot October
book was a Villainous read about an Asian Evil Queen. I did not expected much of it because I do not like Snowwhite's story and I'm new to the Asian setting. I do think that Asian culture is very interesting to learn from and about.

Xifeng (shefung) is a poor girl who lives with her aunt in a little village in Feng Lu, all she has is the education her aunt taught her and her beauty. Her destiny is shown in the become the next Empress. So she set out towards the palace.... This is such a nice retelling from the POV of a villain! That is something I haven't read before. And I really liked it. Xifeng develops towards the Evil Queen and it is really nice to see that happen.

Dao has a really nice writingstyle, I couldn't put the book down. Even if you don't read as much as I do or if you are not as good in English you can still easily read this book.


If you doubt to read this book, do it! The series/duology is called "The Rise o…

Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer

This is not just a retelling about Aurora, but also about another girl, never been told. About her sister Isabelle. These two sisters are very different, but grew up together in the castle. And while Malfleur is getting stronger, the kingdoms are divided. And the girls get separated.
This story is different from what I expected, I thought it would be more excitement. But although I was disappointed, it did read like a fairytale. It had a slow pace and that suit the story, the story about Sleeping Beauty. Because the writing wasn’t that fast paced I took my time reading, I even went three days without reading because I didn’t was drawn to it that much. I wish the story would have contained more excitement, more mystery and maybe folklore? I love Folklore and especially in fairytale books!
This is definitely a fairytale retelling that reads like a real fairytale, like Hunted by Meagon Spooner. Next year Hillyer will bring out another book “Winter Glass” I think that this will be a compa…
