2013 is at the door…
Life is short, break the rules,
Forgive quickly,
love truly,
laugh uncontrollably,
never regret anything that made you smile.

fantastic giveaway

Woow! 2 messages in 1 day!
That's a record for me, I think. At least in the last couple of weeks ;)
I found some great giveaway and I want you to know about it.
So here it is on the blog of Chey.

Thank you very much for a chance to win this giveaway Chey.

Reading challenge 2013

Hi everybody,

First I want to tell you that I hope you got some great christmas day(s). Mine where a little short because of a ilness with my youngest nephew. But the moments that me and my family where together it was great :D

And now my second message to you.
I am such a worthless blogger the last couple of weeks or is it even months?
I am very sorry about that. But I am still reading, that would never end.

And when I was skipping true blogs I came to Evie's blog. She has got a great reading challenge on it and I like to join this.

Here are some rules:

Challenge Guidelines:
This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2013 - Dec 31, 2013.
Anyone can enter! You don't have to be a blogger, as long as you review the book you've read! (On your blog, Amazon or Goodreads/Shelfari!)
Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that's been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Only books released in 2012 and earlier! NO 2013 ARCs and 2013 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!
You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.
When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2013 TBR PILE Reading Challenge. (If you don't have a blog, post about it on Facebook or Tweet!)
You can move up levels, but no moving down.
Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2013, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
On the 20th of each month one of the hosts will post a wrap-up. Every wrap-up will have it's unique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this month. For each review you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It's open to INTERNATIONALS. The giveaway will be open until the next wrap up post goes up! (i.e. the entire month)
If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up one review twice - we will be checking ;)
December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones you'll link up in December will be entered into a HUGE giveaway - a box of books.
You don't have to follow all the hosts to join the challenge, but you do have to follow all of us to be entered in giveaways!
(how many books you're planning to read for this challenge in 2013)

1-10 - A Firm Handshake
11-20 - A Friendly Hug
21-30 - A Sweet Kiss
31-40 - Love At First Sight

41-50 - Married With Children

I am aiming at Love at first sight. Sooo 31-40 books. And I think that would go with the books I got and the books I still want to read.

This would be my first reading challenge so I hope it would be fun

Have a great day and I will join you guys soon in blogworld.

STS 13

It's already time for Stacking the shelves. This meme is hosted by Tynga and a fantastic idea to show other bloggers our new books.

This week I thought that I didn't get any books. Until one of my colleagues discovered that I love to read. And she also loves to read. So I lent a few of my books to her. And the next day she came with a few books of her self and lent them to me. I don't know if they really are my kind of books. But I will try to read them. :D

Could you tell me if one of these books are fantastic and which of the books shoud I start with?

Outbreak by Robert Tine

Prophecy by David Seltzer

Men in Black

The Souvenir by Patricia Carlon

The third victim by Lisa Gardner

Cell by Stephen King

Crazy by Faye Sultan

Waiting on Wednesday 1

Hi everyone!!

This is the first time I am joining Waiting on Wednesday. This meme is hosted by Jill and the idea of this meme is to show everyone wich book you can't wait to read :D

Sooo....I don't think this one would be shocking for you, because I know that a lot of people want to read it as soon as it is published :D

Clockwork Princess
by Cassandra Clare
Expected publication: March 19th 2013

From Goodreads:

Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close.

If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it?

The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose.

Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment.

Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy.

Have a great wednesday everyone!!

STS 12

Hi everyone

I am sitting here behind my computer with a box full of tissues and the biggest cup full of thea with a little bit honey. Brrr...you can see fall has begun in the netherlands.

And I can tell you how happy I am that I got a lot of books that I still didn't read. Finally I can start with these books.

Okay, now lets start with the reason for this post. I am a day to late, but I hope that doesn't mind.

I got a few new books, so it's time to show you them, here and at Stacking the shelves, hosted by Tynga.

The first is a late birthday present from Nikki@reviews by Abby (thank you so very much girl, I am really happy with this book :D

The second book I got a few weeks ago but I forgot to show it to you.

And the last book was one of the books I really want to read and my friend Mandy sent it to me after she was back from her vacation.

And what books did you got in your mail this week?

I wish you all a great sunday!!

Feature and Follow Friday

Hi everyone,

Just a day to late but I hope it doesn't matter.
Because I like to join Feature and Follow Friday, this meme is hosted by Parajunky and Alison can read.

Q: What are you reading right now? How do you like it?

I am reading City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare.
And again this book is fantastic. Just like the first 4. But it is a lot more exciting. Pffw...really. I can't tell you a lot about what I really think because then I will tell you the things that happened and what I think about them. And I think you should read it for your self :D And what I love about this book is the part where we read about the relationships. But again, you should read it for your self :D LOL.

What I can tell you is that I am a big fan of Cassandra Clare. I love her books.

Which book are you reading? And do you like it?

Happy weekend!

Feature and Follow Friday

Today a new Feature and Follow Friday. This meme is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison can read .

Today's quistion is:
What is the worst cover of a book that you've read and loved?.

I don't think that I can answer this one. But I was not quiet sure so I checked my read-list on goodreads and everyone of my books (the books that I liked and finished) have a nice cover. What I can tell you is one of my not finished books. And that is Drakula. I think that would be the worst cover of a book that I read but not finished.

And now I am very curious about your answer. Was it hard to find a book cover that you didn't like? And wich one was it?

I wish you all a great weekend!!

Memorable Monday

Hi everyone.

Why in the world should a weekend be so short? It's to soon monday :( LOL.
I don't really like mondays. But what I do like about mondays is this meme Memorable Monday, hosted by Mari. Here you can show everyone what your favorite quote of this week is. But my quote is not a quote of a book that I read this week.

But I really like this quote, so let me show you. It's from the book Entice by Carrie Jones.

“Nobody is perfect, though. We all want everyone to think we are, but perfection is some crazy mythical state that we can never achieve. It is a goal beyond our grasp, always shifting and changing and taunting us, because it knows...it knows we can never reach it.” ― Carrie Jones, Entice (click on the title to go to goodreads)


Okay, this was my quote. Do you like to share your quote with me?
And let me tell you that I got a birthday giveaway, it would end august 17th. Just click here to go to the giveaway.

Have a great monday everyone!

zaterdag 28 juli 2012


Woops! My last post was also Stacking the shelves hosted by Tynga. But the summer was finally there in the netherlands so I was most of the time outside or at my work.
But in my free time (mostly at night) I was surfing on ebay. And I can tell you that I find out that Ebay is a great please to buy some great books. I am a little bit addicted. ^^ But you can't blame me. Did you ever buy something from ebay? It is sooo very cheap. :D

This week I got two second hand books from ebay. And I am sooo happy with them.

The first one is the third book of the serie (I still should buy the second one but I couldn't find him on ebay)Downside Ghosts by Stacia Kane (just click on the link so you can read on goodreads al about this book)

Okay, now my second book: It's a new serie for me. But I wanted to read it for a long time. It is Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh .

I hope this is a great serie. Did you read it? And can you tell me what you think of it?

Memorable Monday

Hi everyone!

Today the weather really sucks (sorry for my language) so I have all the time to go on the WWW, blogging :D

And because its Monday it time for Memorable Monday, hosted by Mari. I choose a quote that possible could happen to me. And of course I laughed at this quote just like so many in the fantastic books of Darynda Jones.

This one is from the book: Second grave on the left (this link is from goodreads)

“Make it quick," I said when I picked up. "Okay. Two men from the FBI are here." Cookie said. Quickly. Crap. "Men in black are at the office?" "Well, yes, but they're actually in more of a navy." Crapola. I so don't have time for men. In any color. "Okay, two questions. Do they look mad, and are they hot?" After a long, long, pause, Cookie said, "One, not really. Two, no comment at this time. And three, you're on speakerphone." After another long, long pause, I said, "Okie dokie then. Be there in a jiff.” ― Darynda Jones, Second Grave on the Left

How about your quote for this monday? Do you like to share it with me?
Happy monday!!!

Problems with goodreads

Hi everyone!

I hope you have got some great week and a better weekend.
My week was very busy again.
But now I want to check on Goodreads and again I got problems with this site. This site doesn't open when I want to look at it. Is it just me? Or do you guys also got problems with this?
I really want to look on it and just go to my messages but I can't. So it is nothing personal. And I hope that one of you can tell me what the problem is. Is it my computer or is it the site?

Have a great evening everyone!!

It's been to quiet around this blog. I know that and I am sorry. But there where a lot of good things around here. And than you have to make choices. And one of the choices I make was to spend a smaller time on the internet. So that is why you don't see me around as much as a few weeks ago.
