This is going to be an awesome one. There’s a few books from this list that are going to go!
- Het Mensaquotiënt – Anna Hofstede
I received this book when I joined Mensa NL. I started reading it, but never had the time to finish it.
Der wanderende Wald – Wolfgang Hohlbeins*
Die brennende Stadt – Wolfgang Hohlbeins*
Das tote Land – Wolfgang Hohlbeins*
High fantasy in German. No idea why I thought I would like this. It’s really not for me. I only read the first couple of pages, and well… not my thing.
5. De Spiegelvrouw – Theo Hoogstraten
I thought this book was quite scary when I was still a kid. Later on, a couple years ago I read it again. Luckily it wasn’t as scary anymore, but still pretty good.
6. As Kingfishers Catch Fire – Gerald Manley Hopkins
I’m not a bit poetry fan, and most of these poems were too religious for my taste. However, I’m keeping it as part of my LBC collection.
7. Lange Nachten – Frans van Houwelingen
One of the children’s books I received from church for Christmas. This one is due for a reread.
8. Les Misérables – Victor Hugo*
I picked this up not too long ago. I’ve never read, or seen the movie or the musical (and whatever else is there). However, I feel like I should read this classic soon.
Thuiskomst – Tonya Hurley10.
Sissy – Marieluise von Ingenheim*
Both are just not my thing. Therefore, they’ll be on the to-go (or trade) pile.
If you see any books that I’m getting rid of that you might like, let me know, maybe we can arrange something! I’d much rather see my books go to a good home than donate them to a second hand store. Who knows what happens to them then?
