The book that almost got me in a reading slump again..

January was such a good reading month for me, I finished 5 books. Which to some of you might not seem as much, but to me it definitely. is. They were also 5 books that I thoroughly enjoyed, every single one of them. February – so far – has been very different. I started this book which I thought I’d read in like a day since it is so short, well it’s now the 19th and I have just finished it… Didn’t read anything else yet. 2019 was the year that I would describe as one big reading slump, this…

5 Romance books I want to read ♥

Happy Valentine’s Day! If you celebrate it that is. I personally don’t, but I did want to share some books that I’ve got on my TBR list that kind of goes with the Valentine’s theme. One of the goals that I set at the beginning of this year is to read more thrillers. Well, I’m doing pretty good with that goal, but I’ve added one. I also want to read more romance. In January I participated in the Romancetheque Bookclub and read Outmatched by Samantha Young and Kristen Callihan. I loved the book so much and it made me wonder…

Chitchat: My reading month

So, as you may or may not know last year I didn’t read that much. I only read 11 books and the year before it was only 13. I told myself 2020 would be the year for me to finally read more books. That’s also why I started my book club – the Oh My Book Club, if you don’t know about that yet, you can read all about it here. Anyways, January has actually been quite successful on the reading front. I read 5 books. And maybe that doesn’t seem like much to you, but it definitely is to…

Bookreview: Silent Scream by Angela Marsons

Bookreview: Silent Scream by Angela Marsons

After getting into the Detective Erika Foster series I got very much into thrillers. Right now it is definitely my favourite genre. So when Dutch publisher Boekerij (which is the publisher of the Erika Foster books) reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to be an ambassador for another thriller series I said yes immediately. Give me all the thrillers! This particular series is the D.I. Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons. The first book Silent Scream has just come out in Dutch; titled Stille Schreeuw and oh my god it was so good! Stille Schreeuw by…

Bookreview: Recept voor Geluk van Saskia M.N. Oudshoorn

So before I dive into this review, I just wanted to give you a heads up that I’m going to write this in Dutch. Why? Well, this is an original Dutch book, so there isn’t really any point in writing it in English. Recept voor Geluk van Saskia M.N.

The Oh My Book Club

The Oh My Book Club

I’ve been playing around with this idea to start a book club for a while now. And today I can finally announce that I’m actually doing it. This year I really genuinely want to read more. Not so much to be able to have a nice number of books at the end of the year on my Goodreads challenge, but because I feel like I’ve been missing out. Last year I didn’t read that many books, 11 to be exact. My worst reading year so far… And I’m sad about it because reading is one thing that I enjoy so…

Bookreview: Dark Water by Robert Bryndza

Last year I really enjoyed the Detective Erika Foster series by Robert Bryndza, I read the first two books and loved them both.
