The ABC-Book-Challenge: X/Y/Z

Hi all! I’ve decided to do the ABC-Book_-Challenge too! I have been thinking for a while to find something to write next to my weekly reviews and I thought this might be fun πŸ™‚

I got the idea from Sofii @ A Book A Thought, so thank you! Like her, I don’t know the original creators so if you do, please let me know!

Sadly, this will be the last one (and it’s not even officially one if you check the titles below lmao) but I did have a lot of fun sharing this with you all! Ironically enough, also the last day of 2019 and I didn’t even plan it like that!

It’s a bit of a difficult challenge since my (and lot’s of others as well) TBR is always growing so every time I can publish a post, a week later I get a new title that I could’ve added to it but oh well. I hope you all enjoyed this with me!

Memorable titles that start with the letter X or Y or Z

  • I honestly don’y have any books that starts with these letters omg

  • When The Moon Was Ours: a book that in the beginning seemed confusing a little, but turned out to be so beautiful. It’s an amazing combination of a little magic, love, honesty, finding yourself, keeping secrets. sharing secrets, everything.

The ABC-Book-Challenge: U/V

Hi all! I’ve decided to do the ABC-Book_-Challenge too! I have been thinking for a while to find something to write next to my weekly reviews and I thought this might be fun πŸ™‚

I got the idea from Sofii @ A Book A Thought, so thank you! Like her, I don’t know the original creators so if you do, please let me know!

Again, I’ve put the letters U and V together because of how little books I have starting with those letters

Memorable titles that start with the letter U or V

  • Vampire Academy: One of my first books in the YA genre, and I’ve loved the hell out of it. It’s still a series that I reread almost every year without regret!

bookish talk · fun for friday

Fun For Friday: 11-22-2019

Hi all! Officially, I’m a day late with this, but I think there are some countries where it’s still Friday πŸ˜‰

So, I started this “meme” with the idea to have a weekly post about my weekend plans, and made it to posting a whole… one week xD But here I am again (on Saturday) with a second try! Read the first one here!

In this post, I’ll share with you what I’ve been reading, watching, playing and doing in the past week, what I’m hoping to do in the upcoming weekend, and I’m hoping to interact with you all, because I’d love to know what you’re doing as well!

Right now, I’m sitting in a restaurant with my boyfriend, working on school, of course, and waiting for the kid to be done with his (4-hours-long…) activity. I brought my laptop to work on school, and my boyfriend is prepping his next DnD session πŸ™‚

What I’ve been….

..Reading

I finished Five Dark Fates, which I talked about in my previous FFF-post,and I loved it to bits! There were so many unexpected things happening and so many characters I’ve loved throughout the series, and I hope to review the whole series soon!

I also started reading This Mortal Coil, and finished it. I am almost done with This Cruel Design as well, but I wanted to read the last 100 or-so pages yesterday and just kept falling asleep! Not because the book is boring, absolutely not, but this week has tired me so much, I couldn’t keep my eyes open 😦 Both of these books are really amazing, and I’m eagerly waiting for the last book in the series.

I also brought with me A Closed and Common Orbit, because that’s the next book I wanted to read, and I thought I’d have finished This Cruel Design last night ^^;

 

..Watching

Well, this is a short list, because since the last post, I haven’t watched anything new ^^; We heart that Stephen Fry will feature in Doctor Who though, so we miight need to catch up soon! There was another series he wanted to show me, but I forgot the name haha

..Playing

Also, quite short, and basically the same as last post! Since the new semester has only begun this week, and I had only one class on Monday, we decided to play the game we originally wanted to play in the weekend: Keyforge: Age of Ascension. I haven’t played a lot on my laptop past weeks, so that’s easy haha

..Doing

School of course, what else is there to do..? Nah, in all seriousness, last semester ended a week ago, and I have one grade yet to get, but I passed all my other exams so far πŸ˜€ Our project worked well enough as well, and if the internet is nice to me, I might even be able to upload the video here. [Edit: I tried, but I have to get premium to be able to play videos so.. I’ll upload it on Youtube and put the link online!]

deltarobot

I can upload an image, and our project was to build a robot that could pick up the puzzle pieces, and place it in the box correctly πŸ™‚ It meant researching, building, connecting, wiring, coding and endless, endless testing and trial-and-errorring but in the end it worked!

This semester, we have to work on the same project, and basically expand it and add new features. It requires a camera now, that we’ll have to connect to the PLC and somehow have the images from the camera convert to code that the PLC can work with to send signal to the servomotors to move, so our robot can go to the place it needs. All in all, a process that will take up quite some thought&time and might be easier to explain once I can show my video!

Upcoming weekend!

Well, technically this weekend, but still. We’re here at the restaurant, and after that, we’ll go home and probably work on the Sinterklaas surprises for a bit (very Dutch thing to do), and tomorrow, we don’t have any plans as far as I know. I do want to work a bit in the weekend, because my code for an assignment next week is almost working and I really want it to work completely.

How did your week look like? What plans do you have for the upcoming weekend? What are you reading this week? Let me know!

Hi all! I’ve decided to do the ABC-Book_-Challenge too! I have been thinking for a while to find something to write next to my weekly reviews and I thought this might be fun πŸ™‚

This week, the new semester has started at school, and it’s gonna be busy again. After last semester, I really want to try to make more time for myself, and that’s beside spending time with my family. I noticed last semester that I usually am busy with school, or I am spending time with family, but I couldn’t remember the last time I did something for just me.. so when I broke down a few times in a week again, I talked to my boyfriend and eventually I admitted that maybe my body needs alone-time as well sometimes. So, last weekend I just couldn’t think of anything to do, and ended up spending an hour or two on the couch reading, it was lovely. My boyfriend joined after a while, and I noticed how much I missed nights like those ❀ 

Monday, I only had one class, and in the weekend, I didn’t feel like playing a game, so I suggested we played a game Monday evening. The box still says “20 minutes per game” and we still manage to take up the entire evening for one Keyforge match ^^; It was really nice to play again though!

Anyhow, off to the post!

Memorable titles that start with the letter T

  • Three Dark Crowns: The book that started my crazy obsession with this series! I sped through this book in no-time and loved it so much. The characters, the story, the secrets.. everything. I recently finished the last book of the series so I’m planning on reviewing them all soon!
  • Throne of Glass: another start of a series that I loved with my whole heart. Sure this series has had it’s problems, and I didn’t like it that much at some points but I love the whole story of Celaena. Review here
  • Twilight: I couldn’t let out my absolute childhood favorite, could I? The Twilight books were actually one of the first book I’ve ever bought and I went to see the new movies in the theater xD
