Summer Readings


Summer equals having time to read some new books for me. Even though I tell myself on a daily basis not to go to bed with my iPhone (since artificial light is wrecking your sleep) and read a book in stead, I hardly actually do it *shame on me*. So with the prospect of 3 little holidays (to a Danish island with the family-in-law where I’m at now, next week back to the Netherlands to visit the parents and at the end of the month to Paris with the boyfriend), I visited my all-time favorite webshop: Amazon and ordered the books above.

I’m not sure why, but books are ridiculously expensive in Denmark. J.K. Rowling’s “The Casual Vacancy” alone already costs around 35 euro, which is the same I paid for all five books together on Amazon!

While I intended to buy the Harry Potter books, I ended up with Rowling’s newest novel. Hope it will be as good as the HP movies, even though it’s probably the worst comparison. “The Time Traveler’s Wife” has been on my to read list for months, besides that it’s a love story I’m not really sure what it’s about, but I’m happy to find out. The Great Gatsby is currently in cinema’s and I was just curious what all the fuzz is about. During my last holiday in Bali I read “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett, so when Amazon suggested “The Color Purple” I knew I couldn’t go wrong with it. When it’s good enough for Oprah, it’s good enough for me. “The Fault in Our Stars” is actually totally unknown for me, but it has been a #1 in the New York Times Bestseller list, so I thought why not give it a try?

PS: Did you knew, when ordering above 25 pounds Amazon ships for free? Also internationally!
