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

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

Read: February – May

Guess what, I’m back! I have been MIA for three months or so and I feel really bad neglecting my blog like that. So here I am, back at it again. To start, I figured I would write down the books I’ve read these past few months. There haven’t been that many, besides blogging I also had little time to read, but I am getting back into it! According to.. Read More

Review: Wuthering Heights (****)

  For our first ‘Classics’ edition of the year, our book club read ‘Wuthering Heights’ by Emily Brontë. I have read it when I was about 14/15 so I decided to read it again and see the difference. I only vaguely remembered enjoying the book and mostly I remembered struggling reading the dialogue with ‘Joseph’ who speaks with a heavy accent written down almost phonetically. So I was curious to.. Read More
