Two-weekly Reading Roundup

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 SeurSnow White by Donald BarthelmeHaal meer uit je dip [Get More Out of Your Bad Turn] by Marisa Garau

 

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 BakerWhere'd You Go, Bernadette? by Maria SempleHet Boschhuis [The Bosch House]  by Pauline Broekema

 

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.

    You are one of the most determined people I know, Judith, so I cannot wait to see what is brewing from your new passion.

    You are still reading more than most people I know!

  2. I just bought Where’d You Go Bernadette finally, now I just need to find the time to read it!

    Have a great reading week,

  3. I need to read the 24 hour book store yet. Book store! Whats not to love?

  4. Laurie C says:

    My husband and I took up dancing when all the kids moved out and it has really cut into my reading and TV time! I hope you’re not giving up reading and blogging, though, just doing other things too!

  5. Is this less reading!?!? Since I enjoy your blog, I have a selfish interest here, but I hope it’s just a phase. 😉

I love comments! Let me know what you think.
