In June, I read 17 books of which 7 were for my Dutch blog. I didn’t like everything I read. In fact, there were four books that I didn’t finish. That is rather a lot. Three of them I was looking forward to reading, so it wasn’t that I chose the books wrongly.
Books that stood out:
While I loved some of the books I read, the books that stood out most, were the ones that I did not finish. The Twelve especially was a book I expected to really enjoy, after reading The Passage by the same writer. Life After Life I expected to enjoy because of the topic, but unfortunately, I didn’t. Two real disappointments!
