Recipe: Gingerbread Blondies

It’s nearly Christmas and it’s going to be a weird one this year. The Netherlands went into its second lockdown last week, and many other parts of the world aren’t doing much better either.

In November, I participated in a very fun event called the 1000 Doors Readathon, which is basically a choose-your-own-adventure readathon where you pick your next book based on what you thought of the one you just read.

Any fans of the TV show Friends out there? There must be, because there don’t seem to be many people left who haven’t at least watched a few episodes of the show. It used to be my absolute favourite TV show for years, and I know all of the episodes pretty much by heart. So, […]

Mini Reviews: November 2020

It’s already been almost an entire year of mini reviews! I’m not sure yet if I’m going to continue doing these reviews in this format in 2021, but it’s definitely a very nice way to wrap up every month. Back when I started this blog, I reviewed every single book I read with a full […]
