Just plain Suus

Book lover + reader + reviewer

Read: November

I knew my reading spree could not last forever and sadly I have only managed to finish three books this month. Thankfully I am still 2 books ahead of schedule for my new reading goal of 60 books, so not all is lost! This month was all about finishing ‘Het smelt’ and reading our book club pick of the month. So what did I read last month? Read on and.. Read More

Read: October

Last ‘Read recap’ I was already excited for Fall and so far it has not disappointed. There is rain, there is cold, there is darkness, also known as the perfect time to curl up on the couch with a book. Which is exactly what I have been doing, racing through books faster than you can say ‘October’. I might have to adjust my reading goal again since 60 books is now.. Read More

Read: September

Here we are, yet again, at the start of a new month. Fall has really begun and to get in the proper mood for the final three months of the year, I am listening to the soundtrack of ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s stone’. In case you didn’t know, I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I love listening to the audiobooks narrated by Stephen Fry and September has been.. Read More

Review: All the Bright Places (*****)

It has been a while since my last book review. I thought I would get back at it with a book I really enjoyed: ‘All the Bright Places’ by Jennifer Niven. It has been described as a mix between ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ by John Green meets ‘Eleanor and Park’ by Rainbow Rowell, which are two of my favorite YA novels. The Plot ‘All the Bright Places’ tells the.. Read More

Read: August

As you might have noticed I fell off the proverbial blogging wagon midway through August. However, I am once again back and hopefully a little more consistent this time. After my Instagram post last Saturday, here are the books I’ve read in August. As always they have been given a rating X out of 5 and a short review. August ‘Dood van een thrillerschrijfster’ by Pauline Slot *** Generally, it.. Read More

Read: July

Oh my, how time flies.. I managed to read quite a lot, but blog not so much.. Shame on me. I will try to be better this month, but I feel like I need to start experimenting a little bit with what I want my blog to be. Anyway, that is not what this post is about! Let’s look at the books I’ve read in July. Here are the books.. Read More

Read: June

Last month I did a big post with the books I read in the previous 4 months. So, this month I can just share the books of one month. Happy days! In my previous post I wrote I was 5 books behind on schedule and I am pleased to say I am now back on track. I would also like to refer to the 5 book goal of last month’s.. Read More

Review: Americanah (***)

  This week I am reviewing a book club read. For those of you who don’t know, a little over a year ago I started a book club with two of my friends in Delft. We read classics and modern literature and if you want to have more info you can check our Facebook page. Last month we read ‘Americanah‘ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I was really excited to read..

Review: Maus (*****)

I finally made the smart decision to get a library subscription. By now I have learned I have no self-control, especially around books. So I figured it would be better to take 9 books out of the library at once then spend 50 euros on books because I thought I could handle a visit to a bookstore. The first on the giant pile of books I borrowed was ‘The Complete.. Read More

Review: The Hate U Give (*****)

My aim for 2017 is to review all the books I read. However, since I am already behind quite a bit, I am starting with a recently finished book: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. A young adult novel about police violence and the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement in the United States of America, I thought it would fit nicely with my aim to read more about and written.. Read More
