February releases you need to keep an eye on

Happy February, readers! I hope this month will treat you well. Of course, near the end of 2019 I published my most anticipated releases for 2020. You can find it here! But after taking a closer look at the list of new releases on Goodreads, I realized that there are definitely some books coming out this month worth mentioning.

Because the book can either describe cold, wintery situations so well, that I feel cold too, or it’s just so good I got chills from it.…

Dutch things that are kinda weird

I’m sure you’ve seen them… Articles where foreigners explain what American concepts they find weird. Prices excluding tax, gaps between bathroom stalls, et cetera. In the end, I believe every country has its quirks, so this post is about weird things I’ve noticed in the Netherlands! When you’ve lived in one country your whole life, you’re used to the concepts that “outsiders” might find strange. I myself am no exception. Having lived most of my life in the Netherlands, there are a lot of typical Dutch things I do not think twice about. But these things might be weird for…
