Well ladies and gentlemen, I believe this is the book of books. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez.
Never realised before, but Hamburg is only 3.5-hours driving from my house. In other words, peanuts. And, as I discovered recently, very worthwhile.
I’m going to see Michelle Obama! Unfortunately, I am probably not going to meet her personally (I think). I have tickets for her book presentation at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam next month! I’m so excited!
What would you give a bookworm that is about to emigrate to Australia? A novel where the story (partly) takes place in Australia haha.
A melting pot. You can say that about Istanbul. A city that captured my imagination for a long time. From books, stories and tips from people who had visited the city.
If this year every book is a page-turner, then it should be very easy to complete my Book Challenge 2019. The page-turner is The President is Missing from Bill Clinton and James Patterson. Did you just read, Bill Clinton? Hell yes!
Paris, London, Brussels, Istanbul, Copenhagen, every year Reinier and I celebrated New Year’s Eve in another European city. A mini party, just for the two of us. Not with family, not with friends, not at a big anonymous party and certainly not at home on the couch.

Yes, they still do exist! New books that blow you away. Circe by Madeline Miller. A book about Greek mythology…..really?
