A perfect city moment in a cute little cafe with a new library book 💖
I finished Rebecca (which I LOVED) and felt like continuing with Du Maurier's books 📚👌🏻 Also, I'm such a softy for beautiful covers!
I picked this book up at the library where it was on the 'new in' table. And oh my dear is this an intense, deep, profound read! I'm only on page 342/800 but it's beautiful. You should take your time though and take it all in, the scenes, the events, the characters, the beautiful writing. I could go on! Most definitely would recommend!
I'm having a late start to the #24in48 readathon, but I am ready now! I'm not gonna go for the full 24 hours, and probably not even 12, but I might get in 6 to 8 hours today 😊 This is a stack of books I picked up from the library yesterday 📚 can you tell I like Historical Fiction? 😇
Fantastic! I didn't mind the amount of pages, because everything was just perfectly written with a wealth of information. And the characters were so real. I really wanted to dislike some characters, their behaviors and the way they thought and then Follett made me sympathize even with them by giving them a sentence where they showed true feelings, insecurity or remorse.
I just read that a third installment will be published this september: yeah!
In theory I should be able to read this book in 24 hours, which sounds perfect for the #24in48 readathon this weekend. Sooo looking forward to it!!!
I thought the first few chapters were interesting and weird and it got me curious as to where the story would go. Halfway through I still did not really know what to expect, but I kept on reading. I liked the idea, but did not like the final the chapter. It was too hurried and I could have used a few more pages of how and why (trying not to spoiler anything here!).
I would not really recommend but would also not discourage anyone from reading it ☺
I forgot to bring a book on the train with me so I went to the bookstore at the station with a gift certificate I still had. I'd say a present well spent! Curious how long this one will take me to read.. 😞📚 oh, and again a gorgeous cover, it looks less daunting this way! :)
I enjoyed this book so much! It was my first book of 2016, a birthday present from my best friend and I had absolutely no other obligations the day I read it, so I finished it in one go. So, I'm curious if I would like it again this much without all those extra factors counted in. We'll see.. :)
Oh, and I adore this cover, so mysterious and pretty!
Literal translation of the Dutch title is Night with/of Stars☆
I'm currently reading Elle & Lui for the #readathon and it's going better than expected, considering French is my third language and I'm not fluent. Almost halfway through the book and still so many hours left to read! So enough time to read a few chapters in the other books from my stack, like Anna Karenina or The girl on the cliff 😊
Thinking about rereading this one by Donna Tartt. I read it in high school for English and it made such an impression on me that I am always recommending this book to my friends! It's been probably over ten years since I read it, so it might be about time 📚
Kate Morton is one of my favourite authors! I love all her books. Lake House was an intense one and at some point I even put the book aside because I didn't like where it was heading (turned out I was wrong, luckily). After a few weeks I picked it back up and finished it in one go!
