Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag | 2020

I can’t believe we are already halfway through the month of June, aka halfway through 2020. Probably one of the weirdest years in my/our lives. I thought I’d commemorate this moment with a list of questions all about the books I have read so far in the year (and a few about what I still want to read this year). This is going to be fun, as I’ve read 28 of the 31 books in the first two and half months and then 3 books since mid-March. I am going to blame my boyfriend, as it perfectly coincides…

My Camp NaNoWriMo Pledge

I hereby pledge to write 50,000 words in the month of July. In other words, I am participating in Camp NaNoWriMo [July 2020]. I kind of already revealed this in my Goals for June. Every few years, I decide to do this and I never follow-through, due to the lack of time. But this time, I am committing and I now have you all as witnesses, haha. What is Camp NaNoWriMo? It is the summer version of National Novel Writing Month. This initiative was started in the early 00’s and it takes place every November. Since a few…

VIDEO: Lockdown Book Haul

Hello there! So I just posted my “first” video on my YouTube channel and I thought I’d also give it a special place here, for you to check it out. In this video, I’m showing you what books I have bought since the whole world got on lockdown, basically. It’s quite a lot, so grab a cup of tea or coffee and a snack, and I hope you enjoy!

Goals: June 2020

For a long time, I have been making yearly goals lists. I have also tried to do the monthly goals a few times and I remember it being really useful, so I am bringing it back. I will do these – of course – monthly and will give a progress report of the previous month. Now as this is the first one, there’s not going to be a progress report of course. But in the post for July, there will be a part in which I tell how far I had come on the June goals. I have…

Welcome to the Life With Lieke-blog 2.0!

Hello! So this is weird. For me, at least. But I want to introduce myself quickly before you emerge yourself into this blog. I’m Lieke, at the time of writing this, 23 years old. Born and raised in the Netherlands and writing has been my absolute favourite thing to do, ever since I found out it’s pretty easy to write your own stories. With this blog, I want to keep that love for writing alive. The last few years, I haven’t done much writing, because well, life. But now it’s my time to shine and keep on writing…
