That Summer Feeling

My last exam is coming up next week, so it’s the perfect time to start looking forward to the summer vacation. The good weather, traveling and loads of free time are things I’m in desperate need of. School has been extremely busy this year, as I just almost finished my first year in college, and I really need some time to catch up on sleep and all other sorts of things. In this post I’d like to take a look at all the things that I’m aspiring to read or watch this summer.


Yes Please – Amy Poehler
I’ve already started reading this quite a while ago, but I wasn’t able to continue reading due to having to read another book for school. Now that that’s over I’ll gladly reprise Yes Please. I’ve only read 36 pages (and the prologue) so far, but I was already really enjoying it. She’s hilarious and it’s fun to know she’s dealing with other people and situations.

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
I think it’s about time that I read this one. Gone Girl has garnered a lot of critical acclaim and it has been lauded by readers, so I guess that’s the most important recommendation you can get. The fact that I liked The Girl on the Train so much and that it is being called ‘the new Gone Girl’ should say something, right? I’m really excited to read this one, or perhaps devour is a better word, and then I can finally watch the movie as well.

Christmas Presents | Haul

Is it normal that I am sad as well as happy that the holidays are over? Christmas and New Year’s Eve are a wonderful time and I always enjoy being around my family, but it’s also a really busy time to be honest. I had to go to several parties and in between those I had to study. Yes, you read that right, here in Belgium we have to study during the holiday break. We have a rather unpleasant system where the finals take place after our holiday break (hurray Belgium). So not that great of a time actually. An upper side about it is that we do have some time off afterwards.
That aside I do am glad about all the presents my family gave me. Here are all the gifts they got me.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I am very excited to read this book. It’s highly praised by the book community and is named one of the best thrillers of 2015. So yeah, this will probably be my next read! It’s also being adapted into a movie with an amazing cast, so we have that to look forward to.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Also one of the best thrillers of recent years, so definitely a must-read. I have heard so many good things about this one that I just can’t get any more excited to read it. As people are calling The Girl on the Train the new Gone Girl must mean something, right.
