Which film are you looking forward to, to see in theatres this year?
The wintertime is set last month and this month is as usual…the most busiest time of the year, the ‘inbetween’ of the first university semester of this year.
Next month will be The most wonderful time of the year because of the Christmas holiday and all the family and friends festivities.
This month november I am, and have been, so busy with lots of activities such as working on a project, making big assignments for study and extra curricular stuff such as working for Dresscode and celebrating already my birthday this weekend (my birthday is officially tomorrow).
All this stuff and events gives some nice inspiration for lots of blog posts.
I have to be selective – for now – as well because I have so many things to blog about.
My week of blog posts has a structure that looks like this:
Monday = Book review day – or related
Tuesday = Category day (see list of categories in the menu)
Wednesday = Series review day – or related
Thursday = Category day
Friday = Film review day – or related
Saturday = YouTube video / Pinterest / Recipe (can also be on a category day)
Sunday = Sunday’s Quote
Do you have a preference of a subject where I should blog about?
I hope you are looking forward too to my blog posts and it will be a surprise what is coming up.
Yesterday I have made a sports poll –> The Olympic Games 2016 Rio – Sports Poll to ask people in which sports they are interested to watch. This sports poll can be filled until the 14th of August so until next sunday. If you did not vote yet, please do so. At the moment it counts already 48 votes.
The Olympic Games Rio 2016 are divided in 28 sports, featuring 41 disciplines and 306 events. The sports I watch – …and the ones that still have to begin will be hopefully watching… – are (partly seen):
First gold medal 2016
The Netherlands got their first gold medal of these Olympic Games at the Cycling Road Race for women. Anna van der Breggen has won the race in a fantastic final last km. Sadly her teammate Annemiek van Vleuten crashed in the last km’s by the descending of the last hill. She’s ok fortunately. Otherwise she would have won the gold medal. But those women are a team so Anna fixed it! The other teammembers are Marianne Vos (previous Olympic Champion of London 2012) and Ellen van Dijk. When maybe later the video of the incredible finish is online, I will write a little blog post about it.
Today was the first day of my summer holiday and I have made a list of books I want to read the next couple of seven weeks. During those seven weeks my taste will probably sometimes change and I have my last Propedeuse exam in August so I have a quite varied list.
The summer book list:
The list is ordered by author, not by what I am currently reading or read next.

and another yet to choose physical book. But I will probably bring a book from holiday home too.
Which books do you want to read this summer? Or what is your summer choices list?
The new year has started so it is time for a new list of books that are / will be filmed to become films in 2016! This post is a listed overview of which books will be seen as film in theatres this year.
Also I have seen along the internet several lists, and I have put everything together and checked with IMDb. The dates mentioned are those looked up today (January 5th, 2016). If a book was not mentioned in the media before in those lists – as far as I have seen – I have written New to the list beneath the title to make it clear. If I write …As in…means the author(s) of the book wrote a … kind of book.
The list sorted by release date
January 2016 – Total = 6 films
14th, The Danish Girl – David Ebershoff
21th, Legend – John Pearson New to the list!
21th, The Big Short – Michael Lewis New to the list!
28th, The 5th Wave – Rick Yancey
28th, The Revenant – Michael Punke New to the list! And partly based on the novel.
28th, The Finest Hours – Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias New to the list!
As a booklover – or bibliophile, how you wanna call it – I started listing the books I have read on the international website Goodreads.com. A couple of weeks ago I found out that there is also Dutch website and community where you can keep track of the books you have read, want to read or are currently reading: Hebban.nl
In this post I tell a bit about both communities and of course the good and the lesser things about keeping a list on both sites. And as a conclusion I have a tip for: the reader who reads a few, the reader who reads average and of course also a tip for the reader who reads a lot.
There are several good apps to keep track of books you have read, to-do lists and just apps to read books on your device. But which one to use while traveling?
I have an iPod Touch (yes, the thirst of the 3rd generation!), an e-reader (Kobo Aura) and work on a laptop/computer. But what when I am on the road, traveling. If you sit in a train or tram or bus for 20 minutes for example, you can effectively read 15 minutes maximum. Sit down, grab your device, read, pre-last station pack your stuff again and don’t forget to step out on time! I’ll show you a short list of my choices based on my experience. Oh and I discovered something: the ReadMore app is gone! And I’ll tell you why it is a pity! The short list:
