Well, the hot weather is keeping up! It was 35 degrees Celsius today, which, O.O. Very un-Netherlands-like (that’s a word now, fyi), and tiptoeing the line between “amazing” and “please make it stop”. I had a friend come over to basically lie in the hammocks all day and it has made me realize how much blog work you can get behind on if you take one day off 😛 Not kidding, I suddenly had 3 reviews to write (most of the time I’m up-to-date on reviews!), comments on 3 posts to reply to, and a ton of blogs I still need to visit. The hot weather isn’t exactly motivating, but I’m slowly doing everything 😛
Otherwise, not much has happened in my world, mostly because the whole of the Netherlands is lying around in the garden or barbecue-ing their way through the evenings. I am looking for some bookish recs, though, so throw anythign at me! I’m mostly looking for summery books, preferably contemporary, but it can be any genre 🙂 If there are some books I should have read a long time ago, just say the word, haha. Thanks everyone!
I have a confession guys: I’m addicted to a app. It’s the Kim Kardashian Hollywood app. I downloaded it as a joke, to see what all the fuss was about. Now I’m shamelessly addicted and a B list celebrity. I can feel you guys judging me, but seriously- don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. Come back to me when you’re all addicted to it to [; Haha! Have any of you tried this app out?
I had a adventure yesterday. I went to the lake with a friend, and we decided to do something different than our usual swim and peddle boat. We decided to go paddle boarding. I was a little nervous of falling off the board and into the middle of the lake, but luckily that never happened. I managed to stand eventually (albeit with shaking legs) and soon got the hand of things. I’m basically a paddle board pro now :p Lol seriously though, it was so much fun and actually quite a good way to work out.

Larissa’s Book of the Week
I’m so excited to read this one! I’ve read Winters’ other historical novel (In the Shadow of Blackbirds) and adored it. I can’t wait to be captured once again by the haunting mood, the atmospherics descriptions and great historical feel that I experienced in Cat’s other work. The Cure for Dreaming focuses on a suffragist main character and I just know I’ll love reading this one.

The Art of Getting Stared At: Honestly haven’t heard of this one till I received it in the mail. I’m reading it now though and like how it highlights a uncommon illness.
Atlantia: I’m excited to dig into this one! It deals with a underwater world and that has me very interested already. I also just adore the simple cover.
