Early last month, after being in The Netherlands for about 3 weeks, my fianceé and her family decided to have a bit of a late Sinterklaas. Sinterklaas is like Christmas, but with a few more twists. I am not going to elaborate too much on that as I want to get to pics of books…
So, Sinterklaas thought it a good idea to give me a book about cooking. What is awesome tho is that its South African dishes, but the book was translated in Dutch.
I am looking forward to seeing if I can cook some dishes out of this (maybe a new blog spot will open shortly , who knows).
Sinterklaas also gave me a book about bookshops.
I think he had some help from my fianceé as well, because when I opened it there was a little note from the author! My first ever signed book!😱 Thanks love.
Then, later last month, it was Valentine’s day. Milou and I have decided that we were going to start a tradition of giving a book on days like these, spending the day reading and if we happen to have chocolates, eat them as well😋. Milou got me:
This is the third book in the Keiko series, by Mike Brooks. I have the first two already, also from Milou, which I have read and really enjoyed. I am going to do a re-read of the first two before I get to this novel, seeing as I havent written reviews on this blog for them yet.
Lastly, we were visiting some shops in search of Sinterklaas presents when I treated myself to:
This is the magazine that Gamesworkshop puts out either monthly or weekly, I am not to sure. But its packed with news and goodies most of the time. It also came out with a small book containing two short stories:
Looks interesting and I cant wait to dive into it.
Those were the books I recently acquired. Hope you all are gonna have a great March. I know I will, as it is only 15 dais to our wedding!
Good day everyone.
