Books I’ve bought in April

April 14 it was Independent Bookstore Day in the Netherlands. I bought bought a signed copy of Origin by Dan Brown and a signed copy of Love Me Not by M.J. Arlidge. With the second book came a free copy of Running Blind, a novella by Arlidge.

This month I also bought the Burn-Out Diary by Maaike Hartjes, Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff and IV by Arjen Lubach. My train was delayed and I spend my time in the bookstore while I was waiting.

  1. Leuk dat je De vrouw in de kooi hebt gelezen. Ik lees bijna geen thrillers, maar dit boek heb ik toevallig wel ooit eens gelezen. Ik kan me nog goed herinneren hoe spannend ik het einde vond.

  2. There are so many good ones here! Honestly, I’ve never finished a book from Dan Brown. But I kinda want to try now.

    However, I’ve been reading a lot from Murakami. They’re so good.

  3. Isn’t it crazy how fast time flies?? Congratulations on finishing 12 books! I think that’s amazing! Love how you’re into books and it’s so cool that you got signed copies! Hope you’ll have a great May!


  4. Congrats on reading so many books. That is great. I just got my e-arc of Spinning Silver but I have to read a few others before I can get to that one. Haha.
    I also went to bookstore day and got a signed copy of Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell. *.*

  5. There are some gorgeous covers 🙂 Love your photos and blog layout. My favourite book in April were Every Last Minute by Ellen Smith and It Ends With Us by Hoover Colleen, which both aren’t my usual genre, so a big surprise!
