As I do everyday, I go online and do some irrelevant things like spending way too much time on Tumblr, tweet useless bits of information about my life and look at other people’s photos on Instagram. Every now and then I also tend to buy a few things when I’m at it.
So here’s what I’ve ordered recently.
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
I wanted to read something of Christie for a long time. It’s probably one of her most famous books and I thought would fit well as a start in the series of Hercule Poirot. If it turns out that I like this book, I’ll definitely pick up more of her books and start from the actual first book.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Since watching Parks and Recreation, I’ve become a fan of Amy Poehler. She is extremely funny and has done some amazing work in comedy. I’m looking forward to reading this one as it’ll be something completely else than the books I’ve already read and I hope it’s going to be quite funny.

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.
