Two-weekly Reading Roundup
July 14, 2014 7 Comments
The last two weeks
Not much reading done! I’ve been to a 2-Day business course (given by the famous Brian Tracy) and learned to FOCUS on what’s important. And reading is becoming that less and less. And… no reading, not much blogging!
Books I finished in the last TWO weeks: 3
The Home Place by Carrie La Seur. A woman’s never-do-well sister has died. Was it really an accident? A book full of family secrets. 4 stars
Snow White by Donald Barthelme [review in Dutch]. A crazy book about a modern-day Snow White who lives with seven men but is waiting for her prince. 4 stars
Haal meer uit je dip [Get More from Your Dip] by Marisa Garau [review in Dutch]. About how mindfulness can help you when you’re in a dip. I’m not, but I found it useful anyway. 4 stars
Other books I reviewed
Longbourn by Jo Baker. Behind the scenes at Pride and Prejudice: the servants’ tale. 4.5 stars
Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple. A fun read about the disappearance of a mother. 4.5 stars
Het Boschhuis [The Bosch House] by Pauline Broekema [review in Dutch]. A fictionalised family history. Too detailed, too disconnected. DNF.
Planning to read next
