🏨 Winterhuis hotel door Ben Guterson was een fijn boek om te lezen. Ik heb hem van de bieb geleend en heb er geen moment spijt van gehad.
Het hoofdpersonage Elizabeth beland in het Winterhuis hotel, een hotel die alles heeft wat je je maar kan bedenken; van skipistes tot een schitterende bibliotheek. En het is een hotel vol met geheimen en raadsels. Elizabeth raakt middenin een groot raadsel verstrikt en ontdekt ook een raadsel over haarzelf.
Ondanks dat dit een B-boek is (bij onze bieb in ieder geval) leest het wel prettig. Sommige woorden lezen juist als volwassene erg fijn en betwijfel of sommige kinderen bepaalde woorden kennen. Maar dat maakt het niet minder leuk om te lezen.
Y’all, I just finished this book about 45 seconds ago, and I had to post about it because IT.IS.AMAZING. Beginning to end, top to bottom. Hype fully deserved. I know this is not so much a review as an adrenaline-fueled rave, but it is what it is. Thank you, @johnboyne, for this epic story. 🙏🏻 #bookstagram#amreading#booklove#spiveys 📚club
QOTD: Do you play video games?⠀
AOTD: I used to play a lot of computer games and the PSP (the DS belong to my brother), but now not so much since I use a Macbook and I can't download a ton of games since most of them are in Windows😢
Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Finally. A fabulous book that broke my slump of bad/mediocre books. This is my first 5 ⭐️ read of the year! I love epistolary style reads and this was so well crafted. I even got a bit choked up at a couple points. Thinking about Ritchie still kind of kills me. Readers get to meet Iris post-death through her blog and the way her friends and family remember her. Iris also left behind a request for her friend and boss Simon. He is asked to publish her blog, but will have to convince Iris’s sister Jade...and she is not easily convinced. Jade was irritating because she was clearly hurt and lonely and I loved her for it. I was so wrapped up in these characters lives and I only wish I had more to read. I can’t believe this was a debut novel, but I early await more by @adkinsmary! #bookstagram#fivestar#fabulous

I went to a book sale this week at my local library and left with this stack of books! I've read ALL of these before except for Wonder Woman! (I couldn't pass up a Leigh Bardugo book for $2).

There were a few moments when I wasn’t sure where this memoir was heading... but by the end Rick Morton had cleared up any lingering doubts and I was deeply moved. It is beautifully crafted, a difficult tale shared candidly and with well placed dry wit. It made me feel a bit ashamed of my lack of insight into the hardships of the poor in Australia. As much as I smugly think of myself as a progressive world citizen there’s no doubt I am and always have been ensconced firmly in a middle class bubble. Hopefully I’ll be less inclined to take all those privileges for granted after reading this. 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. . .
Thank you @picklebums for the recommendation to read this book. I really enjoyed the story, it kept me nicely distracted through pre-op nerves and again once I was in recovery and waiting for the green light to go home. A little bit of magic, a little bit of mystery, and a lot of fun.
In fact such a good read I've got Natasha Pulley's next book on hold at the library. Fingers crossed I enjoy it as much as this one.
⭐️⭐️⭐️| This book wasn’t what I expected really. It was still enjoyable just not a favorite of mine. The main character, London, is a criminal psychologist and this is a forbidden romance story between her and her client, Grayson, whom is a serial killer. •
This book is a mix of Dexter, Harley Quinn & Joker, and a little dash of Saw. It was very different than what I’m used to. The ending of this book is what makes me want to continue on with the sequel.
This book is very dark, with very heavy topics that could be triggering to some, so just know that going into it. I will be posting my full review on my blog (link in bio) and Goodreads. Hope you have an awesome day! Happy reading!
Finished The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober today. I've never read a sober memoir before and I was surprised at how good this one is. More cheerleading than preachy. It was nice to hear a different approach to sobriety than just AA. I've been clean and sober for over a year now and while life is not perfect it's so good. Hangover with a toddler? No thanks!
