The Weekly Hufflepuff #4

So… Tomorrow is my first school day. Not only is this the first time I’ll actually have class since the end of April, but it’s also at my new school, with new classmates and teachers, at a new location, in a city I’m not entirely familiar with… You could say I’m a little bit nervous.


Me at my new school

So… What happened this week?


  • I finished The Warlock by Michael Scott and OH MY GOD THAT ENDING. Did NOT see that coming.
  • As soon as I finished The Warlock I started The Enchantress, but I haven’t finished it yet as it’s quite big and I didn’t have the time, plus on Friday I didn’t feel so good and couldn’t read.


Actually this happened on Saturday, but since neither me nor my mom left the house that day, I discovered the package on Sunday:

I won Dutch Nephilim’s giveaway consisting of a Lady Midnight preview and six post cards of the new TMI covers! I already read the preview of course (like I could wait haha) and it was amazing <3 I can’t wait for the entire book in March!


On Thursday there was an introduction day at my new school and I did have some fun. It was nerve breaking and especially at the beginning of the day I wanted to cry, but I got through it and managed to talk to some people and laughed quite a bit.

Today I’m going to meet up with a friend and catch up a bit!

The rest of the week was rather slow. I enjoyed my last freedom haha and scheduled a few posts (not nearly as much as I would like!).

Last week I said I would answer your Q&A questions, but I kind of forgot? I’ll probably schedule it this week, but if it doesn’t happen: I haven’t forgotten! Also I’m not sure how much I’ll post from now on. I have no idea how busy I’ll be starting Monday. I won’t disappear completely though, even if I don’t post every day, I’ll try to be active on Twitter!


I’m not entirely caught up on all the posts posted this week, but here are some of my favourites!

So that was my last week of August, which means the last week of summer AND my last week of freedom *gulp*. I read a very accurate post on Tumblr yesterday about stressing about the stress that is to come. Yup. That’s how I feel! If you’re also starting at school tomorrow, GOOD LUCK. HANG IN THERE. YOU CAN DO IT. IN THE WORDS OF THE GREAT WALT DISNEY: 

“Why worry? If you’ve done the very best you can, worrying won’t make it any better”

Anyway, what happened this week?


  • This was a slow reading week for me. I finally finished The Young Elites and it was okay. It took so long for things to get interesting!
  • I started The Warlock (fifth book in The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series) and am enjoying it so far. I had to look up summaries of the first four books since it’s been so long since I read those, but now at least I remember what has happened so far!


I translated quite a bit of my WIP this week, though not as much as I would’ve liked.


The Fosters mid-season finale though. Spoilers in white: DID WE SIRIUSLY GET A HAPPY FINALE OH MY GOD. I mean, okay Jonnor might break up (so not okay with that), but nothing majorly bad happened!! Also not sure how I feel about the new Jesus (I was so confused: ‘Who’s that. What Jesus? That’s not- Okay so we have a new Jesus’ I had no idea Jesus was coming back! I guess I missed that). I guess I’m still used to Jake T. Austin, but we’ll see what he’s like in 3B!

On Thursday I went to see Paper Towns with a friend. Getting there was terrible, as I hadn’t realised how busy it would be thanks to Sail! (If you don’t know what that is, it has something to do with boats. Somehow I managed to miss this events in my 18 years of living in Amsterdam). I barely got on time (which was really funny as it’s usually my friend who’s late haha!) and thankfully we were still allowed to buy tickets and go in. I won’t go into details, or this post will get really long, but I absolutely loved it. They made some minor changes, but they didn’t affect the plot too much and most of them I actually liked (like Angela getting screen-time). The cast all did a fantastic job portraying their characters and they had great chemistry with each other. One of my favourite adaptations, that’s for sure!

I slept over at my friends and we caught up on Pretty Little Liars (no spoilers please, we still have five episodes until the 6A finale). Of course we also talked a lot.

The next day we continued our Pretty Little Liars marathon (actually we went to bed at 3 AM so we continued it the same day haha. I had a really weird dream by the way, about Pretty Little Liars…) and baked muffins with chocolate chips!

Oh I also rewatched The Jungle Book (first time in English since I grew up with most Disney films in Dutch) and was very disturbed to find out Kaa and Winnie the Pooh had the same voice actor (I’M NOT OKAY THAT MY FAVOURITE BEAR HAS THE SAME VOICE AS THAT CREEPY SNAKE OKAY)

I spy with my little eye… Some interesting blog posts!

That was another week! There’s only one week of August left- EEP. Which means I really need to post my first Amsterdam post since I promised the series would start this month. I STILL DON’T HAVE A NAME THOUGH. If you have any suggestions, let me know!
Anyway, how was your week? Let me know in the comments!
