Books I read/am reading
Tess Gerritsen - The Keepsake
This was a good book, I’ve completed it within a week.
Lee Child - Killing Floor
My first Lee Child book and the first of 17 books that he has written. I liked it very much and will read the other ones in time too. These books all have the same main character: Jack Reacher. Of one of the books there has been made a movie with Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher, haven’t seen the movie yet.
Jussi Adler-Olsen - De vrouw in de kooi (The woman in a cage)
This is a Danish crime writer. The first book about “department Q” a special department of the Danish police corps. I don’t know if his books are translated in English, I couldn’t find it so the translation is probably not right. So far I’m half way through this book and it’s a very good one.
I also received the new Karin Slaughter yesterday and the new Karen Rose will arrive next week. Have a few good books to read during Summer.
Low this month
Nothing! Well except the weather maybe. We are having a very cold Spring. It’s in the top 5 of the coldest Springs since 1900. I’m not a huge fan of heat but it’s about time that it’s getting a bit warmer now.
Highlight(s) of the month
My Mom’s birthday (71).
Beautiful day for a walk in a park.
Mark Knopfler in concert, although the concert wasn’t that good, going a night out is always fun.
My birthday: 45!
Rondje Spakenburg with Bella.
And this beauty is an every day highlight for us.
