In May, I read 16 books and I abandoned not even one. I read quite a few books for my Dutch blog, so that means fewer reviews on Leeswammes’ Blog. I’ve had two weeks in which I read very little, so the end result isn’t even all that bad.
Books that stood out:
The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro. The story about a woman who inherits from a woman she didn’t know. She tries to find out why she is the heir.
The Guilty One by Lisa Ballatine. Contemporary fiction, Mystery. 5 stars. Could a 12-year old boy really have killed his 8-year old friend?
This is what I read
