The third book of Six Tudor Queen. While I enjoy this book, it got more interesting after Jane is married. This book also told the story about Anne Boleyn in the eyes of the people around her, according to Alison Weir

Salt to the Sea – Ruta Sepetys
This is the first book by Ruta Sepetys that I’ve read. Easy to read and a reminder of the tragic event of Wilhelm Gustloff. If you like a WWII novel, I bet you’ll like this one!
Six Tudor Queens 2: Anne Boleyn
This is the second book of The Six Tudor Queens series by Alison Weir. Anne Boleyn used to be my favourite until I’ve learned more about her and also until I’ve read more about Katherine of Aragon. Anne Boleyn was my favourite as I thought she was outspoken and had her own unchanging opinion, despite being Henry’s wife. But while reading the first book and this one, my opinion about her changed.
The Binding – Bridget Collins
How would you wish that your unpleasant memories disappear? If you could bind those memories into a book, would you be willing to? Or would you consider those who have bound their memory into a book a cowards?
Hamnet – Maggie O’Farrell
This book has received many excellent reviews, hence I purchased it.
Reading this exactly during the COVID19 pandemic, and there’s a pandemic in this book. As much as I would like to love this book, I must admit that I didn’t have the energy every time I started to continue reading it. Probably not the right time to read it. Maybe I’ll revisit this book in the future
De Tatoeëerder van Auschwitz – Heather Morris
Dit boek stond al een tijdje op mijn digitale boekplank. Na het dagboek van Anne Frank heb ik maar te weinig gelezen over de Holocaust. Niettemin was ik niet geheel enthousiast toen ik het begon te lezen. Het verhaal is anders dan wat ik had verwacht.
The Miniaturist – Jessie Burton
An excellent read! This book kept me entertained from the start til the beginning.
Although I knew that there’s a BBC adaptation of this novel, I haven’t watched the series.
