Posted June 8, 2018 by Bee / 5 Comments

Today I have for you an interview with the ever amazing, most wonderful Cait, whom most of you know as the fabulous blogger at Paper Fury.

First, here’s some more info about this fantastic book. Hey Cait! Of course soon everyone will know you as the magnificent author of A Thousand Perfect Notes, but for now you’re mostly known as the fabulous blogger at Paper Fury. How was your blog born? Aw, you make me blush! Thank you! I confess I have an […]

My Life With BPD & AvPD ~ #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth

My Life With BPD & AvPD ~ #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth

As you may know, May is known as Mental Health Awareness Month. I wanted to make a post talking about that. More specifically, about my own mental health. I’ve always been open about it and have no trouble talking about it. People are also always free to ask me questions if they want to know anything. But in this post, I wanted to talk about something that happened to me this week. Something that left a big impression on me and will stay with me for the rest of my life. Let me sketch the situation for you. On Monday our neighbor was going to come by to check our toilet since it wasn’t flushing right. But we had a […]

ARC Review: A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews

ARC Review: A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews

I’ll admit I was scared to read this book. Not because of what it’s about, but because of who wrote it. Cait has been a dear friend of mine for a few years new and I’ve beta read for her before. So I was scared to read this book because what if I don’t like it? Or will people think I’m biased? But of course I had to read it. And I was careful to be just as critical with this book as I am with all others. And it still exceeded all expectations I could possibly have. A Thousand Perfect Notes is nothing short of excellent.  First of all, I have to start with a warning. This book gets […]

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

Okay so this is going to be a kind of unpopular opinion but I wasn’t blown away by Obsidio. It’s a solid finale, don’t get me wrong, but this series deserved better to me. I won’t make this review very long because there are so many of them out there already and I want to keep it spoiler free for the whole series in case you haven’t started it yet. (Which you should, just FYI.) First off, I did still enjoy this! It was a good book. Just… not at the level I was expecting it to be. Illuminae blew my mind when I first read it and when Gemina came out and it was almost just as awesome, I […]

Bee @ The Movies: Ready Player One

Bee @ The Movies: Ready Player One

The moment I read this book, I knew that this would make an awesome movie. How could it not with all the pop culture references and nostalgia! And when I heard it was going to be a movie with Steven Spielberg attached to direct and produce it, my excitement knew no bounds. I mean, what more can a booknerd ask for really? So last week I went to see this movie at the theatre with my best friend (an equally big fan of the book) and here’s what I thought. About   the Movie Directed by Steven Spielberg Produced by Steven Spielberg, Donald De Line, Dan Farah and Kristie Macosko Krieger Screenplay by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline Music by […]

Blog Tour: The Window by Amelia Brunskill

Blog Tour: The Window by Amelia Brunskill

Hello lovelies! Today I’m hosting the tour for The Window by Amelia Brunskill, in which I’m giving you my thoughts on the book as well as an awesome giveaway! About the Book Bee’s Thoughts I’m not sure what to think anymore right now. Not sure how to write this review in a coherent way. Upon finishing The Window, my mind is all over the place. My thoughts scrambled. And while I do have some things that irked me about this book, I still enjoyed it quite a bit. Honestly, more than I thought I would before picking it up. And I’m not sure where to go from here. The Window tells the story of Jess Cutter, who just lost her […]

I Love These Books That Take Place In Foreign Countries!

Posted March 27, 2018 by Bee / 49 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  I love discovering and falling in love with new countries and cultures through books! That moment where an author perfectly captures the beauty of the country their story is set in, is pure magic. So today I’m going to share some of my favorite books that are set in another country than my own. Though technically ever book set in the USA is a book set in another country for me since I’m from Belgium, I’ll just choose one book set in the USA and keep the rest out of the list because there wouldn’t be much variety in it otherwise. Also I have to note that […]

The Pro’s & Con’s of Being a Mood Reader

Posted March 23, 2018 by Bee / 24 Comments
The Pro’s & Con’s of Being a Mood Reader

It’s a well-established fact that there are two different types of readers. You have the organized reader that pick their next read according to priority (ARC release dates, blog tours, etc) and the mood reader. I like to think I’ve found the golden road between the two of them, but mostly I’m part of that second group. I choose my next book according to my mood. BUT I will always try to pick an ARC or review copy that fits in that mood first because those have priority. A mood reader often binges the same genre for a while because they’re in the mood for it and they won’t even look at other genres when that happens. Of course, this […]

Do People Actually Read Reviews?

Posted March 20, 2018 by Bee / 55 Comments

Today’s topic is a question many of us have asked ourselves ever since we started blogging about books. It’s something we worry about and maybe even lose sleep over. The answer could either motivate us to read even more books and share our opinion until eternity, shouting it into the void. Or it could rob us of all that motivation and stomp us straight into a life-sucking slump. Do people actually read reviews? The truth is… I don’t know for sure. I can’t give you a straight answer and be 100% sure I’m right about it. And I think to know if people actually read reviews, we have to look at why we write them in the first place. We […]
