This summer I read ‘The House by the Lake: a Story of Germany’ by Thomas Harding. This book was different from what I normally read, but I really liked it… Let me tell you why!
Our book club is on a summer break, so I’ve got plenty of time to read other books. I want to share with you a review of one of my summer reads: The Story of Beautiful Girl written by Rachel Simon.
In between my book club reads, I try to read other books. And since I had bought 8 books during the Antwerp Book Fair last November, I’ve got plenty of choice!
Last Sunday we had the first gathering of the second year of our bookclub. We discussed ‘Het Smelt’ by Flemish author Lize Spit. Below you can read my thoughts and the questions we discussed in the bookclub… no spoilers 🙂
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!
Last week you could read about my mixed feelings about ‘The life-changing magic of tidying up’ and this week I will tell you a bit more about the third book we read with our book club: ‘Afterwards’ from Rosamund Lupton.
I looked forward to reading this book as the summary really appealed to me… so read on the see what I thought about it!
