The SFF Badge Collection – Part 1

Happy Saturday book friends! And Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates! I hope Santa left lots of bookish gifts under the tree for you. This year, I’ve been participating in the SFF Badge Collection: a year-long challenge in which you read a book, and collect badges along the way! I am notoriously bad at completing challenges. I’m too much of a mood reader to participate in week, or even month-long reading challenges. So the fact that this one spanned a whole year was perfect. I could just mood read my way through it! Each badge is connected to a prompt,…

2021 Most Anticipated vs What I Read

Happy Friday book friends! Is everyone ready for the Holiday weekend? My work has been closed the past week due to lockdown, but we still did some cleaning up. It was honestly super fun and I’m a bit sad I won’t see my coworkers until next year. On the plus side, I’m hoping to get lots of reading done the next two weeks! And who knows, maybe the lockdown will be extended (again) and I get to read even more. On that note, you all know I overshot my reading goal by quite a lot. But how many of my…

My Reading Goals for 2022

Happy Monday book friends! Well, it’s official. The Netherlands is in a hard lockdown. Only for a few weeks, hopefully. On the bright side, the ice rink remains open because it’s considered outside and I now also have tons of time for reading! On that note, I thought it would be fun to make a little post about my reading goals for 2022! I’ll also touch upon my goals of this year and tell you whether I was successful or not so much. Do tell me in the comments whether you are setting any reading goals for next year, too!

The Books I Didn’t Get to in 2021

Happy Saturday book friends! I hope everyone is ready for the weekend. I am working today, but luckily have tomorrow off. And then it’s the last legs to Christmas! I’m hoping to read a few more books between now and then, but I already know I can make this post now… There were definitely some books on my 2021 TBR that I know I’m not going to get to anymore. A lot of them were anticipated releases, but I also have a few older books in the mix that have been sitting on my shelves for a while. It’s so…

Tag Time – The End of Year Book Tag

Happy Friday book friends! It’s an early day for me. I’m going to be at work all day today. It’s been quite busy really, and we have to close an hour earlier than usual because of Covid measures. If only customers would actually take that into account… Anyway, enough complaining. I thought I’d do the End of Year Book Tag again! I thought I did this tag last year as well, but apparently I did it all the way back in 2019. Looking back at my answers really makes me laugh. I said I wouldn’t read a lot in 2020…
