Review: Otherworld

Title: Otherworld (Otherworld #1)
Author
: Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Release Date: October 31st 2017
Pages: 368
Genre(s): Young Adult, Science Fiction
Source: Netgalley
Purchase: The Book Depository

The company says Otherworld is amazing—like nothing you’ve ever seen before. They say it’s addictive—that you’ll want to stay forever. They promise Otherworld will make all your dreams come true.

Simon thought Otherworld was a game. Turns out he knew nothing. Otherworld is the next phase of reality. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted.

And it’s about to change humanity forever.
Welcome to the Otherworld. No one could have seen it coming.

Netgalley provided me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review. Otherworld is a book that is interesting from beginning to end and that features an amazing concept. It’s definitely worth buying once it comes out at the end of October! Continue reading

Lesvos | September 2017

A little more than a month ago I did something that I never would have dared in the past: I went on vacation by myself and it was amazing. Followers on instagram expressed the wish to see more personal content, so this trip  seems to be a good starting point to do just that, what with the plethora of video footage and photos I took while there.

Fanmix Friday: Six of Crows

In Fanmix Friday, literature and music are combined. Some scenes in books make me think of certain songs. I collect these ideas and incorporate them in a fanmix for a particular piece of literature. In this case, for Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.Continue reading

Recommendations: Scary Children’s Books (Kinderboekenweek)

In the Netherlands we have an annual event called ‘Kinderboekenweek‘ or Children’s Books Week where Dutch children’s books are promoted during ten days. Schools, libraries and bookstores all participate to organize activities. Moreover, there’s a themed book that you receive for free if you spend at least €10,- in bookstores. This year’s event takes place from the 4th until the 15th of October and the theme is terribly scary, which seems very fitting as it takes place in the Halloween month.

Since I read a huge amount of scary books when I was a child and since I usually focus on adult literature, I thought it would be fun to give recommendations for scary children’s books. Many of these books are ones I loved when I was younger.Continue reading
