A while ago I decided to do a Get To Know Me Tag every two months. 
I'd like for my readers to know the person behind the blog, so in this blogpost I'll be answering some questions and you'll be able to get to know me a little better!


Thanks for reading and have a nice day! ūüĖ§



  • What is your favorite family holiday?
    My absolute favorite is Christmas. I'm already excited for Christmas in November and I start listening to Christmas songs by then. I always decorate my classroom into a very cozy Christmas setting and my Christmas tree will be standing proudly in the living room until the end of January.

  • How many languages do you speak?
    In The Netherlands everybody gets the subjects English, German and French in high school. I dropped French after two years, so I can understand a little bit of French. I understand German a lot better, but I don't consider myself a person that speaks German. So I'd say two languages: Dutch and English.
  • What was your first job?
    My very first job was delivering the newspaper. I was around 14 years old. I did babysit the neighbours kids when I was 12, but I don't really consider that a job. In the summer I used to work on a farm and when I turned 17 I started working in a supermarket. That was a part time job that I had while studying. I worked at the supermarket for 8 years!
  • What celebrity would you like to meet at Starbucks for a cup of coffee?
    I'd LOVE to have a nice cup of coffee with Sam Smith. I love his humour and I think he's totally himself and I do believe I could have the best conversations with him. The best episode of Carpool Karaoke is the one with Sam Smith for me. I just love him as a person and his music as well.

  • If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
    "Warning: Foulmouthed and highly sarcastic chatterer approaching."
  • What do you do to keep fit?
    I play handball once a week and I run with a friend of mine twice a week. So I actually work out three days a week. Especially now the handball season is over, I tend to run a bit more. The weather is nicer as well. I also like to participate in running competitions, but not to win, just for fun!
  • What's the most unusual thing you've ever eaten?
    I've once won a trip to Namibia (yes, with a FACEBOOK-photo contest). I ate a lot of unusual animals over there like zebras and springbok, but the most unusual and also disgusting thing was crocodile.

  • What's the tallest building you've been to the top in?
    I went to Chicago for an internship and lived there for 3 months. I went to Sears Tower (Now Willis Tower) and that is the tallest building I've ever been to. I went there around 4 P.M and watched the sunset. It was lovely!

And the book I'm about to pick up...


Three years ago, Rikki Albemarle watched her best friend die at the hands of a supernatural evil. Certain she was slated to be the next victim, Rikki fled her small Smoky Mountain hometown, vowing to never come back. Plagued by nightmares and knowing she's the only one who believes Mina's death was no accident, Rikki returns with hopes of finding answers and holding the killer accountable.

Rikki is convinced the key to unlocking the secret of Mina's death lies with Owen Amir, the alluring young army vet who once claimed her heart. But the deeper Rikki digs into Owen's past, the more she's torn between the urgings of her heart and her memories of him on the night Mina died.
After falling further into the rabbit hole, Rikki lands at the feet of an ancient and powerful evil determined to finish what it started years before. To survive, she'll have to make a decision: believe Owen is the monster she always feared he might be or trust him enough to stay and fight for a second chance at love.



Do you have a question for me to answer in the next Get To Know Me Tag?

Today I will highlight two short stories.
One of them is a picture book and totally stole my heart, and the other was an action paced book.

Title: Little Love
Author: Rose Stanek
Pages: 30

This book was so nice to read. I loved the rhyme it has, I know that speaks to children and I like to read a picture book with rhyme as well.

The pictures are beautiful, if you take some time to look at the pages you'll see much more than what you'd first think.

I could totally see myself reading this book in class. I could use it for an English Lesson with the older kids. The book is educational in life lessons. 

The morale behind the story is such an important lesson for young children, especially those who are so insecure and have bad self-esteem.






Title: Environmentally Friendly
Author: Elias Zanbaka
Pages: 19

What was fun to me, was that this book starts with the action right away. Some books need building up to the action, but I like to read a book once in a while where you just dive in head first.

The story to me was a bit confusing, but after reading the synopsis I understood more and knew a bit better what it was about.

The book was easy to get through and the author shows a nice writing style.

Anyone who would like an action paced short story to cover 20 minutes of your time, should read this book!


Both short stories are worth your time.

A lot of bookbloggers and readers have a never-ending TBR. My TBR is so big, that it sometimes scares me. I decided to visit my own Goodreads shelves and to Unhaul 10 books.

Please feel free to participate and unhaul some of your books. I'd love to know what books you decided to unhaul!




I see a high rating, and loads of good reviews. But the blurb doesn't really speak to me and the negative reviews from some of my friends scares me away.


This does not really make me excited, just feels like another paranormal/fantasy/YA book to be honest.


I really liked the Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, but I don't feel like I would read this book.


Feels like it doesn't fit my age anymore. A lot of my beloved bookbloggers gave this a very low rating.


Again; relying on my trustworthy bookblogging-friends. A lot of low reviews from them and not one 5-star review.


I saw a lot of reviewers that gave the book a low rating because of annoying or unbelievable/cliché characters. This one has to go.


When I see the words "insta-love" and "love-triangles" in a lot of reviews I just quietly exit the room...


The book is too long for all the meh-reviews I saw.


A lot of my GR-friends disliked the book and Ash gave it 1 star, so I'm pretty sure I won't like it.


I didn't even like the first book, I don't understand what this book is doing on my TBR...

Well, this leaves 663 books on my TBR.
Please let me know what you think of this unhaul
Did I delete some of your favorites?!
