Bookreview: Stranddagboek (Beach Read) by Emily Henry

During the recent heatwave here in The Netherlands I was really in the mood for a nice summer read. So when I got send Stranddagboek (Beach Read) by Emily Henry I felt that would be the perfect book to read. And I was so right! We had a little paddling pool in the garden because that was basically the only way to get through the day. I read most of this book in that little pool, quite appropriate right. Ok, I guess reading this at the beach would have been even more appropriate, but I’m not really a fan of…

Bookreview: My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell

Wow, what a book this is… When I mentioned on my Instagram that I was about to read this book I got warned by quite a few people. That this was definitely not going to be a light read, and they were so right.
