The Monday Musts #8

Good day, everybody!

Ohh, I have some very fun things to share with you this Monday Musts! I can 100% assure you that these are some of my favorites of all time, the series, the song and the book!

Let’s not waste more time. If you know any of these things I show you, please, please, please, let me know. I would love to gush about them with you!


MUST READ

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

I adored this book. OMG. It broke my heart. Such a remarkable, beautiful story. It flew by, it even felt like the story lasted for only 10 minutes. This is both a good and a bad thing, though. I could stay reading this story over and over again. But making it longer probably would make it lose some of its meaning. I will talk more about the book in my review that is coming soon. So, stay tuned!


MUST WATCH

The Bletchley Circle

Have you ever heard about this series? I’m discovering all of these phenomenal tv shows thanks to Netflix’s suggestions lately. It’s incredible. This show is so original, and the mysteries are very well developed. It’s so well done and highly underrated, for sure!

I couldn’t find a trailer that fitted the real premise of it. All of these trailers are far more dramatized and sexier than how it actually is. This one is pretty alright, though. The show is about four women who worked as code deciphers during the war, and years later, use their impressive skills to track down serial killers and other criminals.


MUST LISTEN

In Dreams by Ben Howard

Some cool vibes to end this post. 😉

The Monday Musts

Hello, everyone!

Do you ever have that feeling when you have so much work, but just do nothing instead? I have that now.

For my French class, I need to read a book (again) and I haven’t started it. I have to read 64 pages until tomorrow. That may sound like a doable amount, but it takes a while to get in a French mindset and all. I should start right now, but instead, I wanted to use my time to make a blog post.

It feels like it’s been so long since I’ve done a Monday Musts. I really like making these. I will go over this quick because that book is waiting on me and my stress level is going up.

This is a little sneak peek to my book haul for this month. I couldn’t resist myself from reading the first pages of Entwined when it arrived in the mail. I could read it in one sitting I feel like. But I don’t want to read too many books at the same time. I really need to move forward with the other books!


MUST WATCH

The Paradise is a show I recently discovered. It’s wonderful, I am hooked! I didn’t have high expectations because I never heard of it before. Now I really wonder why. This show is so entertaining!


MUST LISTEN

I haven’t heard this song on the radio before, but it sounds like it would be a popular song. I really like the sound of it! I love to play it right before I go to sleep, to end my day. Do you guys know it? Or am I just listening to the wrong radio?

The Monday Musts

Hello, everybody!

I’m back! I made a very hard, but necessary decision to stay off the internet the past week. I needed to focus on school since I had a crazy amount of work to do. Essays, presentations, scientific reports, and other stuff that’ll haunt you in your dreams. But now most of it is done. I can finally continue doing the things I want to do. I also haven’t been able to read a lot. I have a lot of catching up to do!

So what’s new the past week? A lot of exciting things happened, despite the huge load of work. I bought a new phone. So so happy about it! I can finally take good pictures now.

The school ball for the senior years of my school was Friday the 17th. It was so much fun!! Everyone was dressed up, the food was delicious, the music was great. I did see some (tipsy) teachers going loose on the dancefloor. I’ll never be able to erase that from my memory.

I also went to my future university (aah, I’m so excited!!!) to get some more information about the courses I’ll follow next year and you know, other fun stuff. So yeah, I had quite the week!

During those times of studying, I couldn’t resist opening booktube videos or watch some Netflix. I know, I know. I feel really bad. But now, I do have some new favorites I want to share with you.


MUST READ

un sac de billes

I’m picking an old favorite for this week. A lot of the French books I’ve read (for school mostly) I enjoyed a lot. Same for this one, Un Sac de Billes by Joseph Joffo. In English: A bag of marbles. It’s about two Jewish brothers who flee their town and their adventure after that. It’s a really special and gripping story. It’s definitely worth checking out!


MUST WATCH

This has officially become my most addictive show on Netflix. I love Jane, the main character in this series. She is funny, light-hearted, independent, takes wise decisions… I could just go on and on about her and this show. The guys are good looking. Family relationships are an important subject. Some mystery is in there too. What more could you want?


MUST LISTEN

This cover by Daisy Clark is a great song for those moments you want to have a moment of rest. I replayed this song over and over the past couple of days. When I’m looking for some quiet time, music is the first thing I turn to. And books, of course. It has a way of calming you down, you know?


Thank you so much for reading! I’ll talk to you soon!liesje

The Monday Musts #5

Hi, everyone!

I’m quickly writing this week’s Monday Musts, so I’m sorry if you spot any grammar mistakes or other typo’s. Work at school has begun to pile up again and I have to force in some time to blog. Only, math can wait for just one moment. After all, blogging is just as important as school, right?

MUST WATCH

Available on Netflix with subtitles

I love love love this show so much. I had an enormous tv-hangover when it ended. This show is one you can watch over and over again and not get tired of it. Nothing but love for this series!

The Monday Musts #4

Hello everyone!

Today I saw the most beautiful rainbow! It had been raining for hours and when we were in the car, we suddenly saw not one, but two ultra bright rainbows! It was such a pretty sight. I don’t know what it is about rainbows, but they always make me happy. Anyhow, enough about rainbows. Today, I’m coming to you with another Monday Must. The Monday Musts is a weekly meme created by Lovin Los Libros. Each week, you simply share a book, a video and a song you liked.

MUST READ

Alice in Zombieland.png

Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

I feel like this book is highly underrated. I’ve read it about a year ago, and I haven’t heard many people talk about it, really. I loved the premise of the story. It was my first zombie book. I didn’t think I would enjoy it at first, but it really surprised me.


MUST WATCH

Call the Midwife is a British show about a couple women who work as midwives in the 1950’s. They are all very different from each other and experience different things. It’s no comedy, but rather a drama.  It’s not too dramatic, it won’t make you feel depressed. It often handles sensitive situations and that is what makes the show very special to me. It does have humor and lighthearted romance and friendships.

The Monday Musts #3 | Happy Vibes!

Hello everybody!

How are you all doing today? This week, I am going to have a lot more time on my hands. (*hints to more posts to come*) And that means finally some time to read. Yay! I’ve really been enjoying my last couple of reads, too. I am having the opposite of a reading slump. I have so much motivation to read, that I want to read ten books at a time. But that’s not realistic (unless you are superhuman), so I am restraining myself to two.

The Monday Musts is a weekly meme created by Lovin Los Libros. Each week, you simply share a book, a video and a song you liked. For this week’s MM, I decided to work in a theme. Since I am feeling so joyful today, I wanted to reflect that in this post. I hope you enjoy my picks!!


MUST READ

This is a must read if you are looking for something light-hearted. This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith is no five-star read and can be cheesy sometimes, but this book was still a very entertaining read to me. It will definitely make you long for the summer also!


MUST WATCH

New Girl is great if you enjoy funny and cheerful series. I am kind of (very much) addicted to this show right now (I’m still on season 1, but I’m moving fast, haha).

PS: I spoiled myself so badly whilst searching for this trailer! 😮


MUST LISTEN

Ooh, don’t you just want to start dancing when you hear this song? Too bad I can’t really dance, haha.


Thank you so much for reading and I hope you all have a wonderful day! liesje

 

The Monday Musts #2

Hello everybody!

Who of you watched the Grammys? Adele’s speech was on point, wasn’t it? She is so great.

This weekly tag is created by Lovin Los Libros. In this tag you can share your must read, must watch and must listen. I’m very excited about this week’s because they are all things I am very excited about or love very deeply. If you know (and love) them, you can always let me know in the comments!


MUST READ

I know this book has been out there for a while, but lately, I’ve realized that a lot of my friends haven’t read this book yet! Like what? This book is too good to not be read. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski was such a phenomenal read. I wanted to tell everyone who hasn’t read this book yet. Go! Let your mind get lost in the world of angry Romans and fiery women!


MUST WATCH

Oooooh my god! I love this show! This is the first (and probably the only) show that has caught me completely off guard. My mind is still blown after watching it so many weeks ago. The trailer doesn’t really do its justice, but trust me. It’s worth it!


MUST LISTEN

In honor of Valentines Day coming up, I wanted to include a romantic song. Ugh, this song is just so perfect!


Thank you for reading! liesje

The Monday Musts #1

Hello everyone!

One day I was searching for memes to add on my blog and I stumbled onto this one. The Monday Musts is a weekly meme created by Lovin Los Libros. It requires you to share your must read, must listen and must watch every Monday on your blog. I thought this would be a great way to gush about my latest obsessions. I’m surprised I haven’t this meme on many other blogs, it’s really fun to do!


MUST READ

Are you looking for something to read that is out of the ordinary? Then you should definitely take a look at You by Karoline Kepnes. Personally, this book changed the way I look at people forever. Kind of hate it, kind of don’t.


MUST LISTEN

This song is at its most beautiful when you put your headphones on, block all the other sounds and put it on a high volume.


MUST WATCH

In honor of the new season of the 100 coming out this month, I’ll be desperately trying to convince you to give this series a try. This is one of the greatest TV shows existing! It is violent, heart-wrenching and disgustingly beautiful. Words can’t describe how much I love this series.


What do you think about my picks for this meme? As you can see I am very passionate about the 100. I would love to hear if you are as obsessed as I am!
