Dancing out of February 2019

February was a weird short month where Merijn went to his grandparents for a week and husband had his vacation a week later (this week actually). It went a little up and down for me personally. Depression is no joke. But at least we had some Spring weather. Now March will bring back the snow, lol. (I joke, I hope.)

Reading Challenge(2)

⌘ My whole semi-hiatus thing didn’t quite work out the way I wanted it to (and only messed with my stats). I honestly couldn’t find the motivation to fix the broken photos. It is so much and boring work. I did end up doing some when Merijn was at my parents for a few days. But now I need to do more. Meh.

⌘ Also photobucket was being stupid with new rules for free accounts, when trying to delete a sub album I deleted all the photos of the whole blog album and I couldn’t download whole albums anymore. I ended up cutting my losses and deleted my account.

⌘ This month was also a bit hard with the group therapy course. I was awake a lot of nights or I dreamed weird things. I rarely remember my dreams/nightmares but now I did so that is a bit weird… But apparently it is also a good thing in relation to the therapy so yeay.

⌘ My friends twins turned two. Yeay~

⌘ On the up I worked ahead to about May and for my bookshelf tours I’d like to do an intro post with a FAQ. If you have any questions pleave leave them in the linked form. I’m probably going to bug you guys about this in the next few months in quite a few blog posts #sorrynotsorry

⌘ I won a book from The Reading Hobbit’s giveaway. ❤

The Passage / Season 1 / Ep 3-6
They are drawing it out a little now…

Zoo / Season 2 / Ep 5-7
I mean, it just keeps getting weirder…

what i watched february 2019

Daphne & Velma / Movie
This is a weird prequel to Scooby-Doo where Daphne and Velma met each other before the others (so no scooby here). It really doesn’t fit in with any of the other live action movies so that is just weird. It was cheesy, awkward and I laughed hard. Its not a good movie but it did have some good bits.

Aquaman / Movie
While Merijn was at my parents husband and I went to one of the last viewings of Aquaman here in the theatres and we really liked it. Jason Momoa ❤ But seriously, that kissing scene ruined a lot. Like who kisses for 30 seconds on the battle field???

Beautiful Creatures / Movie
I was bored. This was free on our On Demand so I watched it. Sometimes I do watch cheesy romance things lol. I never read the book though.

Ready Player One / Movie
Another one I found free on our On Demand and where I haven’t read the book (lost my interest because Ernest Cline bleh). It wasn’t too great to be honest. There were only a few good moments for such a big movie.

Reading Challenge(6)


⌘ Aentee from Read at Midnight designed some pretty phone wallpapers inspired by The Gilded Wolves.
⌘ Jackie B. from Death by Tsondoku talks about YA not being a genre.
⌘ Ely from Of Wonderland asks where she fits in the book community?
⌘ Greg from Book Haven talks about cloning.
⌘ Michelle from The Writing Hufflepuff shared some blogs to love for Valentine’s Day.
⌘ Kaleena from Reader Voracious has been doing the Read Around the Globe feature and this month I answered some questions.
⌘ Rachel from Rec-It Rachel sorted some books into Hogwarts Houses.
⌘ Fadwa from Word Wonders created a book rec list based on Emoji.
⌘ And Imyril from x+1 continues with the rec list for my reading challenge. You can find part two here!

Dutch Blogs

⌘ Sue from Boekenz let me show my bookshelves on her blog.


⌘ Hailey in Bookland did a relaxing book shelf tour.

Reading Challenge(7)

⌘ March is going to be the month I focus on some of my middle grade as you can see from the photo above. Certainly these. I am also finishing The Darkest Legacy (my buddy read with La La in the Library) and The True Queen. At the end of the month I had a hard time focusing and I wanted to take my time with The True Queen. Other than that I have one more review copy and a bunch of other books like Legendary

⌘ I also really need to work more on fixing the broken photos. I am on my way with the reviews. I have all the photos uploaded somewhere new and now I just need to replace the broken links.

Reading Challenge(8)

This monthly wrap up will be linked up with the monthly one by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction. This so we can blog hop to each others wrap ups easier.

  1. Oh, dat van die afbeeldingen is zo rottig. Echt een tijdrovende en vooral ook super saaie klus (die jammer genoeg ook behoorlijk veel energie vraagt) om dat vervolgens allemaal te kunnen herstellen.

    Ik vond het leuk om jouw boekenkasten meteen te herkennen op Sue haar blog toen ik mijn blogfeed aan het bijlezen was. De laatste jaren heb ik steeds meer bizarre dromen. Soms word ik helemaal verward wakker en duurt het echt een tijdje vooraleer ik besef dat het niet echt was. Ik herinner ze niet altijd maar wel regelmatig. Soms maak ik me de bedenking dat ik het misschien eens moet neerpennen want sommige van die dromen zouden een goed startpunt voor een boek kunnen zijn. Het is dat ik geen ambitie heb om iets anders als blogposts en misschien gedichten te schrijven.

    Hopelijk wordt maart makkelijker voor je. Die paar dagen dat het wat beter weer was hadden gevoelsmatig veel effect bij me.

    1. Ja en ik ben de hele week ziek geweest dus deze week komt er ook weer niks van. Normaal zou ik vandaag tijd hebben om flink even bloggin in te halen en daarna foto’s maar opa past vandaag niet op.

      Haha ja die zijn niet te missen. 😉
      Soms is het ook beter om ze maar te vergeten en niet te diep na te denken waar ze vandaan komen haha.

  2. I love your stack photo. 👍✨

    When they deleted the Google+ accounts I guess I must have had some photos that didn’t sub over from the old Picassa album because I have had blanks showing up all over the place, so I’ll be doing some replacing, too, and I agree… meh. I might not even bother with anything except post headers and images in reviews. I’m not motivated either. 😝

    What kind of questions do you want for the FAQ? 😊

    Here’s to spring arriving before April. Ha ha. 😄

    1. Thanks. 😀

      Ah that sucks. I mean, with some older posts I’ve just not put a photo back and just deleted the broken photo the last time around. I just can’t find them all or retake them all.

      Just things you want to know about my book collecting or shelves. 🙂
      Ugh yes please.

  3. I keep saying every month that I am going to work on fixing my older blog posts to match my new theme. And I still haven’t done it because like you said it can be so boring. I really want to venture into middle grade and bought a couple so I’m excited to get to them.

    I’m currently reading Wildcard and seeing your four star review gives me hope! I’m hoping to finish it soon. I also read The Mermaid’s Voice Return In This One and like you, I gave it a 3.5 stars.

    I hope you have a wonderful March!

  4. I’m hoping your March went well and that you were able to get your middle grade books read. I enjoy reading middle grade and try to mix it up with YA. I have Wildcard here and saw that you rated 4 stars and since I love Warcross, I really need to get this book out.
