a list of great movies everyone should watch

Last Sunday I cried my eyes out watching Dead Poets Society. It made me want to live my life to the fullest, read poetry, go to classes, go to a dark cave with my friends, study literature… Isn’t it beautiful that movies can have this effect on humans?

twee bijzondere boeken

What i believe is when it comes to big things in life,
there are no accidents.
Everything happens for a reason-
and it’s not to fail and die.
– Ransom Riggs, Hollow City

Ik wil jullie graag vertellen over twee boeken die mij de afgelopen tijd vrolijk hebben gemaakt. Twee bijzondere boeken. Ze vertellen allebei een mooi en inspirerend verhaal, maar allebei op hun eigen manier. Dit klinkt heel cheesy, maar je snapt straks wel wat ik bedoel hopelijk.
