Weekly Reading Roundup
December 2, 2013 8 Comments
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 [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
Books I’m reading & planning to read
The Holdout by Laurel Osterkamp. This is a lovely light read about a woman who took part in a reality show and then was up for jury duty. 4.5 stars
Luchtvissers [Air fishermen] by Gerwin van der Werf. A man moves to an abandoned island for some peace and quiet but finds he’s not the only one. 4.5 stars
