I don't celebrate Thanksgiving at all. It isn't even all that known in Belgium, as far as I know. We mostly hear about it through television and social media but.. that's about it? I wish we celebrated it over here though. A holiday to be thankful on? To actually show your gratitude? I really think we could all benefit from that.
I feel like today is my perfect opportunity to talk a bit about what I'd want to add in my library room. Especially since it kind of goes with today's TTT topic, which is "Bookish Items / Merchandise I'd Like To own" and I'm changing it only a little bit by going with "Things I'd Like To See In My Library"!
I feel like this is such a.. confronting topic.. Simply because a lot of us have shelves overflowing with backlist titles we still haven't read. And it's not because we don't want to read them - we do! - it's.. because those new, shiny books keep distracting us.. And then you get a whole mountain of unread books.. So here are eight of the books I hope to pick up.. soon.. ish?
It's been a while since I posted all about a certain kind of cover. What better way to change that, then by going all orange on your butts in this one?! I have to admit, orange is one of my least favorite colors. Pink being my absolute least favorite - sorry! But that doesn't mean the covers can't be pretty or eye-catching, right?
With all the creepy vibes this month - admit it, there've been a lot of Halloween-related posts going around! - I started thinking about the things that freak me out most. Not in general, but when reading a book or watching a movie. I know I'm a pussy - that's something that'll never change - so this might be quite the predictable post. Should I have watched / read more horror, this probably would be more elaborate, more specific and more unique but.. still.. I'm curious about your answers as well so I'm still doing it!
Two weeks ago, I talked about some - in my opinion - dark and scary books. This time, I'm going to talk about some movies that make me think of Halloween. One because it legitimately freaked me out for weeks, another one because of it's dark atmosphere and others because they simply gave me those Halloween-vibes.
Last week, I shared some scary and dark books. This week, I'm going to talk about some of my favorite magical creatures and the books they feature in. They're not necessarily dark or halloween-ish, but they definitely have the capability to be! It all depends on the author, I'd say, ha.
