    Book Babble: Movie Adaptations

    There was a time when the only books I read were those from the movies I watched. ┬áSince last year, I’ve been reading books that haven’t been turned into movies and I love them so much more! Movie adaptations intrigue me. Sometimes they’re amazing, sometimes they’re not. But people’s opinions on those movies are what’s most interesting to me.

    Book Babble: eBooks vs. Physical Books

    I can almost hear the sighs and the “could you be any more original?!” questions now, but the eBook vs. Physical Book opinions/discussions are so interesting to me! I absolutely love physical books because they fill up my shelf so beautifully, but I like eBooks because I can read them on my phone or iPad and don’t have to carry any extra weight. Basically, I love both, but keep reading if you want to know why!

    Book Babble: The Definition of Good & Bad

    I’m in a Dutch YA group on Facebook. A while back, instead of asking what book everyone thought was best, this person asked about the worst. Someone left a comment saying good and bad is different for each reader, and I agree. Since then, I actually started thinking about it a lot. What are the definitions of good and bad when it comes to reading? Short answer: there is no real definition!

    Book Babble: Why I Don’t Read Dutch

    Book Babble: my words for what others might call a discussion. In my first Behind The Books post, I talked about how I “stopped” reading Dutch books and switched to English. Being a Dutch book blogger in the Netherlands who only reads English can be quite complicated, but it’s all worth it! I do occasionally pick up a Dutch book, but it’s quite rare! Today I want to talk about why I don’t read Dutch.
