Reading Update: October

october-quote

Happy (belated) Halloween! I hope you all had a scary evening filled with more treats than tricks 🙂 I stayed in and watched Hotel Transylvania 2 with a friend (Halloween and ‘trick or treating’ isn’t widely practised here in the NL) and we spent the evening laughing our heads off instead of screaming in fright – definitely more preferable in my opinion.

October was a busy month for me but I managed to read quite a bit thanks (I guess?) to being stuck for a few days without internet access. It was a bit frustrating at first but then I started to enjoy being alone, in the middle of nowhere, with only my books to keep me company…

So here’s my reading update for October 🙂

*Random Post Alert* My Holiday to Jordan

14441136_1158520340895503_885927076171745518_n

In September I went on holiday to Jordan. I mentioned it in my September reading update, remember? I also mentioned that I would be writing a post about it on a travel blog I’ve recently joined.

Now the post has been published on said travel blog, so I’m posting a link to it here because I wanted to share my trip with you.

I also wrote one a few months ago about my trip to Colmar, if you’re interested 🙂

Wishing you all a great week!

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I think that most people have either read this, have read reviews about this, or have heard of it at the very least, so I’m a bit late to the party (don’t worry if you haven’t actually heard of this…you have now 🙂 ). This novel took me a bit longer to get through that I had planned because I picked up a whole bunch of other books along the way (story of my life). But I finally decided to dedicate my undivided attention to it during my holiday in Jordan and boy was it worth it!

Reading Update: September

September has been a busy month. I spent most of it still at home in London with my family (since I live in Amsterdam now, it’s nice to be home with them for a while). I also had the most amazing holiday in Jordan! It was an incredible trip – I did and saw so much, and I was lucky enough to stay with the nicest family ever! I’ll be writing a blog about it on a new travel blog I occasionally write for, so be sure to check that out if you’re interested (I’ll write a post on this blog directing you to it once it’s up 🙂 ).

Anyway…back to the books 😉

Reading Update: August

September has already started so I’m a bit behind with posting my reading update for last month…sorry!  I’m currently back at home in London, visiting my family, and I’ve had plenty time for reading. My mum is also a big reader, so we spent many days in August sitting together on the couch and reading…pure bliss in my opinion 🙂 

So here’s what I managed to read last month…
