    Magical Readathon Year 3: Spring Equinox TBR (April)

    April is already very close by and so it is again time for the Magical Readathon! It’s the spring equinox and all the students of the magical Academy of Orilium are expected back at school to resume their classes. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Bookroast, the creator of this readathon, eplains the entire concept from A to…

    Fairyloot Adult #24: February 2024

    Just about halfway through February I received my Adult Fairyloot of that month. For this subscription service, this timing is fairly standard (if nothing goes wrong with customs of course), even almost to the early side. The theme for February was Vikings and here too the speculation about the possible book was quite unanymous. Also take a look at this…

    Book unhaul #3

    In 2024 I want to make a bigger effort to to find books that I no longer care about a new home. At the end of 2023 I already made a first move by unhauling a set to a little free library and earlier this year I tried out Vinted for the first time. In the meantime, it hasn’t been…

    Fairyloot Adult #23: January 2024

    As I indicated earlier, from now on I will start posting regular unboxings of my Fairyloot Adult book subscription again, starting with this first book for 2024. January’s theme was Star Chosen and based on the illustration for the theme I was pretty sure which book this would be. It had appeared on many high expectation lists at the end…

    Read in February 2024

    February was a bit of an eclectic reading month. I haven’t quite got my reading mojo back yet, which doesn’t mean that I don’t read a lot, but rather that I quickly get distracted by my thoughts or (worse) my phone while reading. I didn’t read everything I had planned to read in February, but I did manage to finish…

    What about the Fairyloot Adult books?

    In May 2023, I posted my 11th post about my subscription to the Fairyloot Adult Fantasy Book-Only subscription. I only posted about this subscription when I had actually read the book in question and thus combined the unboxing with my review. I was a little behind on reading the received books, but all in all I managed to systematically read…

    Page & Wick #1: January 2024

    I have the annoying habit where whenever I learn about a new type of book box subscription, I immediately sign up for their waiting list (because there is almost always one). But then there will of course come a time when my place on the waiting list has progressed so far that I will receive an invitation to actually take…

    First Law Along #7: Sharp Ends

    While I was almost too late for the live show discussion of the previous book, I finished this one well on time! The show for this book was originally scheduled for February 11, but due to the overcrowded agenda of organizer Becca it was postponed by a month to March 11. Still, I decided to read it right away at…

    Book unhaul #2

    In 2024 I want to make a bigger effort to find books that I no longer care about a new home. At the end of 2023 I already made a first move by unhauling a set to a little free library. In that post I also talked about the idea of starting a Vinted shop, to try and recover a…

    Read in January 2024

    January didn’t start well in terms of reading. The first week of the month I didn’t even pick up a book. I didn’t read a letter and I didn’t feel like reading either. Then I started listening to a book sporadically, specifically for a readathon I didn’t want to fall behind on. This boosted my appetite again and I ended…
