On My Shelf
On My Shelf is an original feature inspired by the On My Shelf tag. Each time I will take 5 random books from my shelves and tell you about them (how I got them, what I think of them etc.), and if they are in Dutch I will write a small synopsis of them.
I will roll some dice to find out which books it will be.
Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder
I bought this book because I heard a lot about it. It was supposed to be philosophical. I don’t know anymore what I thought of it. I was very young when I read it and have not read it since. I do remember I was impressed by it. I should read it sometime again, due to me now being an adult.
Club Dead by Charlaine Harris
I really liked Dead Until Dark and wanted all the books in the Sookie Stackhouse series. And so I got this one as well. I never got to the owning of all the books. But I liked this one, but was not impressed by it.
Shopaholic & Baby by Sophie Kinsella
I liked the Shopaholic movie and wanted to know what the books were about and so I bought several of them. I liked this one the most. But later on the first book in the series became my favorite one.
Ik Was Pas Dertien by Lea Saskia Laasner
This a true story about a girl getting trapped in a cult. It was very impressive and I just bought it on a whim.
Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
I bought this book after seeing the movie. I liked the book and the movie but thought it was not translated well to the movie.
