Theme Thursday: the best battle scenes in books

It’s been a good while since I did a Theme Thursday post, so I thought it was high time! This time I chose to list what are in my opinion, the best battle scenes in books that I’ve read. Some of these books I’ve read a long time ago, so the details are a little hazy, but I will do my best. But do be warned! This post will contain spoilers for: Red Rising, Golden Son, Kingdom of Ash, and Crooked Kingdom. Red Rising – the taking of Olympus I read Red Rising over the summer and immediately loved it.…

My Favorite Book Stores

I know we all love to order stuff online. It’s convenient, fast, and often shipping isn’t that expensive either. But there is just something so special about going to a book store and wander between the stacks for hours. Maybe picking up a book here and there, and if you’re lucky, settling down in a comfy chair with a cup of coffee or tea. I think we all have our favorite stores to go to, so here is a list of my personal favs! Lattes and Literature – Breda, the Netherlands I have to start with my original local favorite…

My Favorite Reading Spots

We all have that one particular spot that is our absolute favorite place to read, right? I certainly do! But sometimes it’s nice to venture out and seek out other comfy spots with a good book. Post again inspired by JennieLy! Reading spot #1: my bed! Okay so my all-time favorite, and most used, reading spot is my bed. It’s big, it’s comfy, I can accidentally fall asleep… It’s especially the best place to read before going to sleep, as you’re already in bed anyways. As someone who still lives with her parents, my bedroom is my retreat, and I…
