The book club
A couple of weeks ago we had the final book club gathering of our first year. We discussed ‘All the light we cannot see’ written by Anthony Doerr.
This book was my choice so I was eager to find out what my book club buddies thought about it… read on to find out!
The beginning of November always brings one of my favourite events… the Antwerp Book Fair! I have been going for years on end and this year was no different…
So on the first day of November I did some serious book-shopping 🙂 Read on to find out which books I bought and why!
A couple of weeks ago we had another bookclub gathering. This time we discussed “And the mountains echoed”, a book I had been looking forward to reading. It is written by Khaled Hosseini. Read on to find out what I thought about this book… and what the other bookclub members thought!
We recently had our first book club meeting after the summer. We discussed ‘Shadow of the Wind’ by Carlos Ruiz… I was a bit reluctant to start reading this 550 pages thick book… so let me tell you what I thought about it!
Before joining our book club, I hardly read a couple of books a year, even though I love reading. So when my colleague wanted to start a book club, I immediately jumped to the idea as I thought it would be a great way to pick up reading again… and it worked!
I still owe you a ‘book club’ report from our latest gathering, nearly a month ago… I didn’t come around to write it yet, but, with a bit of delay, here it is!
This time we read ‘Gone Girl’ by Gillian Flynn. I’d heard many opinions about the book, but also about the film (with Ben Affleck). Some were really positive, others were more like ‘too many plot twists’ or ‘it didn’t grab me’ or ‘I couldn’t get into the story’,…
Anyway, the summary really appealed to me so I was rather looking forward to it. Below you can read my thoughts on this book. And what did my book club think of this read?!
