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.


Planning to read next

    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.
