For today’s book review, I will tell you a bit more about Benedict Wells’ novel ‘Becks Laatste Zomer’. I couldn’t find the English title, so I guess this book isn’t yet translated, but you could translate the title in ‘Becks’ final summer’.
I still owe you the reviews of two more Book Club reads from 2018. So today you can read my thoughts on ‘Be my knife’ from David Grossman and soon I’ll treat you to a review on ‘Angela’s Ashes’ from Frank McCourt, the last book club read from 2018.
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 🙂
