Do you ever feel that pressure to like a book, especially when reading the big names from world literature?
I read War and Peace so you don't have to.
This book was not really my cup of tea.
Last month, I read the two historical novels Het pauperparadijs by Suzanna Jansen and HhhH by Laurent Binet. Two very different books that I had very different expectations of as well.
A few weeks ago, I got engaged! To celebrate, I'm sharing my favourite books about love.
In 2017 I participated again in the feminist bookclub Our Shared Shelf. Read all about the books I read!
Two years ago, I read Ulysses for the first time. Last semester, I did a course on this incredible book and I reread it.
I don't know if I think this is a good or a bad book.
As some of my readers might know, I love nineteenth-century French literature. So when Patricia Worth contacted me if I wanted to review her new translation of George Sand’s Spiridion, I was very excited. I have wanted to read something by Sand for quite some while now.
This summer, I read the classic Anna Karenina by Tolstoy. I absolutely loved it, but not because of the main character Anna.
