Weekly Reading Roundup

*****

The week

I met Suzanne of Bibliosue last week for a coffee! Not only that, we’re going to Amsterdam tomorrow to visit the Anne Frank house (where I’ve never been – I know, it’s terrible!) and maybe accidentally on purpose stumble upon some book stores (Waterstone’s, anyone?). Suzanne, originally from Canada, now living in Chicago, thinks the weather is quite good. I don’t know about that, but it could be worse. Anyway, we’re all set for a great day out.

Last week, I also went to the launch of a Dutch website for readers, writers and book makers. This was good fun and I met some people I already knew and people that I only knew online.

I read a fantastic book, The Humans by Matt Haig, and two good books.

Books I finished in the last week: 3

Val by Tupla M. The Humans by Matt HaigDodenweg by Olga Hoekstra

Val [Fall] by Tupla M. A woman has fallen into a pit, but is it really an accident? A suspended young lawyer researches the case. 4 stars

The Humans by Matt Haig. An alien has taken over the body of a professor who has discovered a secret that will affect the whole universe if it comes out. He learns what it means to be human. 5 stars

Dodenweg by Olga Hoekstra. On one road, several accidents occur in which young women are killed. Or were they dead already? A female journalist tries to find out. 4 stars

    I’m reading a new Nele Neuhaus: Bad Wolf. Thanks to Netgalley! As always a great read with a lot of persons involved but never confusing as to who is who. I’m halfway through and I just want to read on but have to work too…..

  2. I like the covers of The Humans, it keeps pulling me though the story not so much. Glad you enjoyed it though. Have a great week!

  3. Judith! Taking time to visit some of my favorite places tonight (yeah, that’s you).🙂 I want to join the holiday card exchange but leave next week. Wouldn’t it be fun to get a card from someone in America but marked Italy or Switzerland?!

    Have an amazing week!

  4. Great job Judith; hope December is a good reading month as well.
