Masterchef Celebrity edition 2016 trailer

Trailer Celebrity Masterchef 2016

 

Masterchef is a worldwide known television cooking programme.
To me it all started with Masterchef Australia. After that I have watched now and then ‘Masterchef USA’, ‘Masterchef United Kingdom’, ‘Masterchef New Zealand’ and this year I have seen ‘Masterchef Holland’ as well. A former high school exam classmate was a competitor in this cooking competition programme.

Today a new video of Masterchef United Kingdom showed up on YouTube. Masterchef United Kingdom is not the first one with this formula, in 2009 Masterchef Australia introduced their Celebrity edition. And they have the most various editions of all Masterchef participating countries. I have not seen such a Celebrity edition before, I have only seen a Junior edition and a Professionals edition. I am looking forward to this special edition. And the English are full of their typical jokes. Fun to watch!

The Readathon of July

The  Readathon challenge is a popular trend that is coming up in The Netherlands. But it exists already for years in the United States of America. Spontaneously I decided today to enroll at the #ohmybookathon, the readathon organised by OhMyBook. It is a Dutch readathon and therefore I decided to read only Dutch books during this readathon.

It’s summer time and lots of people are busy with challenges. Sport challenges, food challenges – about healthy food use – and also book challenges.

The Book Week of Three | Thursday in June

Thursday – Three books new

My three books I have bought the past couple of weeks and why I chose them to be part of this challenge.

and..they are all English pocketbooks

Book one: I have chosen ‘The Rosie Project’ because it seems an interesting story to me
Book two: I have chosen ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ because it is a sad but true imaginable story and when it is close to family or the people you love, a subject like cancer is difficult.
Book three: I have chosen ‘The Rosie Effect’ because when ‘The Rosie Project’ really is that good, than I can not ignore to read the sequel.

The Book Week of Three | Wednesday in June

Wednesday – Three books read

and…three books written by Simone van der Vlugt

My three books I have read shortly and why I chose them to be part of this challenge.

Book one: I have chosen ‘Blauw Water’ it is a slow thriller.
Book two: I have chosen ‘Jacoba | Dochter van Holland‘ because it is a beautiful Dutch historical novel.
Book three: I have chosen ‘De Ooggetuige’ because it is a thriller in a different way, when you are visually impaired.

The Book Week of Three | Tuesday in June

Tuesday – Three books to be finished

and also…three books in red white and grey!

My three favourite books to be finished and why I chose them to be part of this challenge.

Book one: I have chosen ‘Miss Communicatie’ because I have studied media & entertainment management and like communication pretty much too.
Book two: I have chosen ‘Zus’ because it is such a different book than the other two. Different style of writing. But still…it’s a womans’ book.
Book three: I have chosen ‘Game’ because I like this sort of thrillers. Digitalisation and the plusses and minuses of it in an really good book.

My three favourite books to be read and why I chose them to be part of this challenge.

Book one, two three and four: I have chosen the whole series of ‘The Inheritance’ written by Christopher Paolini. I have read already ‘Eragon’ so I still have to read the sequels: ‘Eldest’, ‘Brisingr’  and ‘Inheritance’. Three books to be read to finish this serie of books.
