While I was in Maastricht last Thursday I just had to visit boekhandel Dominicanen and buy a book. I ended up, as is usual, in the thriller/suspense section where I found a lot of (Dutch translations of) King’s books. While browsing I saw a sealed hardcover of Finders Keepers, the second book in the Bill Hodges trilogy. For only 10 euros!! I’m currently reading Mr. Mercedes, the first book, and I’m absolutely loving it. So it was only logical to buy this one!
Yesterday and the day before that Pieter and I spent in the beautiful city Maastricht. This is a city located in the most southern point of the Netherlands and walking the streets and squares it really felt like we were abroad! Here are a couple of pics to show you how we spent these two days in Maastricht!

In September 2017 I read Sleep, Savannah, Sleep by Alistair Cross and I absolutely loved it. So, when I was contacted about Darling Girls I was immediately intrigued!
Today’s the release day of Heir of Ashes by Jina S. Bazzar. The blurb sounds really intriguing and made me really interested in reading it! Read on to find the blurb, more about the author and links to buy your own ecopy!
After a long time of not buying books (except for The Exorcist in March) I thought it’d be time to treat myself to some new books. Don’t worry, I’m still participating in the #theunreadshelfproject2018 and I think I’m doing pretty great (including these new books I have “only” 112 unread books on my shelves!)

Last Thursday at 12am the #25infive readathon started. It’s a readathon where you try to read for 25 hours over a total of five days – emphasis on “try”. When I started I thought “oh, that’s about five hours a day, I can manage that!”, and then life came in the way (luckily, in a fun way!)
