My most anticipated 2020 releases

Can you believe there are only a couple more weeks left until the end of the year? This year has gone by so fast. Lots of great books came out this year, but 2020 will be just as good! Here are my most anticipated releases. A Heart so Fierce and Broken by Brigit Kemmerer – January 7 Okay so I haven’t read A Curse so Dark and Lonely yet, but I ordered it from Book Outlet recently.

Recipe: how to make Dutch “boterkoek”

So in this post I’ll try to give some pointers on how to read, stress free! Remember who you’re reading for… … It’s you! You like books, so you read them for yourself! I’ve caught myself putting books aside, or not picking them up at all because of other people’s opinions on them. In order to read stress free I think it’s important to not be…
