Boekrecensie Aline Sax – Grensgangers

Schermafbeelding 2016-02-07 om 20.04.54Dit hier is mijn allerlaatste recensie voor hebban.nl.

As promised, a translation of my article for the blogtour of AW Bruna…

You’ve probably heard of I am number Four, the first part in a series of fantasy books written by Pittacus Lore.

Blogtour DE WRAAK VAN ZEVEN

Deel DWVZRecently, AW Bruna, a Dutch publishing house, organized a blogtour about the newest addition to the Lorien Legacies. On behalf of Hebban.nl I was asked to review the book and write an article about whatever I wanted. I decided to write an article that sums up 9 reasons to read the series.

MINTS: Movies I Need To See

This blogpost addresses something that all movie lovers are dealing with. I’m talking about the overload of movies that are premiering constantly.

Adding to that problem is the constant production of new, amazing movies that I, as fervent movie addict, can not, and will not, ignore. So, those are added to that same list.

This will be an attempt to organize and control the input for my to watch-list. But maybe it’s also just an excuse to watch those addictive trailers over and over again, until I find the time to go see the real thing. Enjoy!
