The Faceless One by Mark Onspaugh | Book Review

To tell you the truth I had some troubles with this book. I found it hard to get into the story, the multiple point of views confused me a bit and overall I found that the book started a bit slow. I received this book from NetGalley in return for a honest review. I requested it because the plot attracted me and I found myself wanting to read it. So I was a bit disappointed with the start. The first hundred pages or so I found myself not able to make up my mind on what to think. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think this is a bad book! Not at all. Overall I liked the story. The characters were well thought out and…

Finding Colin Firth by Mia March | Book Review

This book is a an enjoyable and fun read which I found myself finishing in no time. I found it easy to connect with the three women, Bea, Gemma and Veronica. Their stories are told in a warm and compassionate voice. Another thing that I enjoyed was the small town life portrayed in this book.

The way Bea and Veronica’s…

Waanzinnige Plannen by Marcel van Driel | Book review

        I’m going to do something new here. Some time ago I went to a lecture by a writer that I follow on twitter: Marcel van Driel. This writer is Dutch, as am I as most of you know. I was very impressed by the lecture and when I was offered the chance to read and review the book itself it wasn’t something that took much thought. I commented and here I am writing my review. Because this is a Dutch book, I will post this review in English as well as in Dutch. I’ll start with telling you about the lecture. The lecture was interesting, inspiring and memorable. Those characteristics are what, in my opinion, make a good lecture. Do you know those plans you…
