Double Library Loot

I am reading farily slow atm, but I need to step up my game because those library books don't wait ;) here is a double batch from December and January.

Books I got in December are: Zoet als zure kersen (sweet like sour cherries) from Claudia Schreiber, a German author, but I read the Dutch translation. I enjoyed the book and I will review it eventually ;)
The middle book is Grenzeloos by Kim Moelands. It is non-fiction about a woman who has a lung disease. I read the frist book a few years back and this is how she went on after that. I am reading it for the Dutch reading challenge, but I haven't started yet.
The bottom one is The Future of Us by Jay Asher. I already returned it and it is one of my DNF books, unfortunately.

And here is my loot for January.
Margot by Sophie Zijlstra. We all know Anne Frank, from the 2nd world war, but this book is from the perspective of her sister Margot. Also for the Dutch reading challenge.
Paaz from Myrthe v/d Meer is another non-fiction book about a woman who has to stay at a psychiatrist ward and her experiences. I heard good things about it, so I picked it up. Also for the Dutch reading challenge.
And the last one I finished last night. It is Thirteen reasons why by Jay Asher. And unlike the Future of Us, I liked this book very much. It is about peer pressure in high school and how seemingly small actions can have a snowball effect on the life of students. A very well written book. I read it for my wishlist challenge.

And because I am reading slow and the library books have a due date, I haven't hardly used my e-reader yet :(

Have you picked up any books from the library lately?

  1. I have a particularly ridiculous number of library books right now. I keep my library books on a shelf, and today the shelf is full and has two piles sitting in front. Several of the books are very very long. I will not be able to read them all in time, no way. Some titles:

    Reached, by Ally Condie
    One about the American Constitution
    Dead Souls, Gogol
    One about an Iranian dressmaker
    One about violence in human society
    One about India
