And here we are, at the end of another month. This month was quite busy for me, and I didn’t really read that many books. I did get a few but out of the ten/eleven that I’d written down for myself to read this month, I have only read six. Oh well, I’ll probably do better next month. Let’s go and start this month’s book & blog stats then!
I wasn’t really planning on buying anything this month, mainly because of Hobbitcon coming up, but then it was International Book Day (or something like that), and then I saw these two books and I just couldn’t stop myself. Mostly because Girl Online was only 8,99?! Which is really cheap for a hardcover in my country!
My country had a Young Adult book week happening, and for that one of our publishers decided to make a bookbag again. This is basically a nice bag (this one was John Green/The Fault in Our Stars related) filled with five books for only 15 euros. I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to buy it, because I knew it woul dbe Dutch books, but my mum offered to buy it for me instead. I also got the Boekenweekgeschenk (a small book written especially for our Dutch (normal) book week). And In Haar Naam I got from my dad’s boss (I guess?) who had won a voucher for a free book and wasn’t planning on using it himself.
Books read this month: 8 books. Total books read so far this year: 33 out of 140 books.
Other things I bought/received:
First picture: an #elfie shirt from Boohoo.com; White dress (WITH POCKETS!!); A nice hat with moose on it; A corset belt; The Mockingjay part one DVD; New Vans; Elf Ears
Second picture: The John Green/TFIOS bag (received); A pair of Hogwarts shorts (received); A pair of Frozen sweatpants (received); A long black skirt with pockets (received)
Third picture: GLOWSTICKS; A water cooker (received); Champagne glasses (received); A giraffe shirt; Mini giraffe’s; A picture with Osric Chau (full picture below)
Things I’ve done this month:
Went to Dutch Comic Con – I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to go to Dutch Comic Con, because there was some stuff happening around it; but in the end I decided to buy my ticket anyway, and I am glad I did because even though it was quite busy, it was also really amazing. I met Osric Chau, who plays Kevin in Supernatural, and he is just such an adorable person!
Had two weddings in one weekend, and had a lot of fun as well! – Even though I didn’t really wear a pirate-worthy costume for the second one, it was amazing; they had a band, an amazing wedding cake, nice food, and a lot of my friends were there, so it was a bit of a pre-HobbitCon party, woooooh!
Cleaned my room a bit more – Mainly because a friend of mine is coming the day before we leave for Hobbitcon, btu I also just wanted to get rid of all the mess. There’s still some boxes with lots of stuff that I need to sort through, but I am really not in the mood to do that right now.
Read only eight books, out of the 14 I had written down. Okay, fourteen is a bit much, but I kind of added a couple more books because they came in this month. Still, I am quite happy I managed to read eight books, seeing as I haven’t been home for three weekends in a row.
HOBBITCON HOBBITCON! Yes April will be the month of HobbitCon. I’ll leave on the 3rd of April and come back on the 6th. Hopefully it’ll be a fun weekend full of parties and friends and amazing cosplays. I’m afraid my Hobbit cosplay won’t get finished in time, but I’ve got several other cosplays I can bring with me.
Sort through my clothes and throw away/sell the things I don’t/can’t wear anymore. While cleaning my room, I found out I have a lot of clothes. A LOT. And not enough space to keep it all. So I’ll probably throw away a lot of stuff that’s too small or not my style anymore, or sell it, if someone’s interested.
Hopefully, finally catch up with Supernatural. My goal was to catch up with it before I went to meet Osric, but I failed. So that will be my goal for April, finish watching season 8, watch season 9 and start season 10!
Read about 9/10 books this month. Yes I amazingly failed with the book reading this month. But hey, I am just going to try again next month! I have taken some of the books I was supposed to read this month and put them up for next month. Hopefully I’ll be able to read them all again!
I failed reading this month’s bookjar book, because I just failed reading books in general. So I’ll be trying to read it in April. And I have also pulled another one out of the jar, because I want to keep doing this every month. So April’s Bookjar book will be:
