How is it November already? How is it almost 2017? I just don’t understand.
Snakewood by Adrian Selby // ★★★ // I finally finished this one! It only took me like 10 days. I’m so torn on it as well! On the one hand, I really enjoyed the story. But on the other hand, it was sooo slow to read.
This is Where it Ends by Marieke Nijkamp // ★★★★.5 // This was absolutely incredible. I saw it at the library and knew I wanted to read it immediately. I actually read it in 2 or 3 hours, because I couldn’t stop reading. So good, and I’ll try to write a full review soon.
When Ryan Came Back by Devon McCormack // ★★.5 // I’ve already reviewed this review-copy I got sooo long ago, so I’ll link back to that here. I liked the mystery, but I think there were quite a few problematic things in this book.
Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike #3) by Robert Galbraith // ★★★★.5 // I read the second book a few weeks ago, and knew I wanted to continue as soon as possible. So when I went back to the library, I picked up this one. I think it’s my favorite one in the series so far!
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins // ★★★ // To be quite honest, I was disappointed in this book. It wasn’t the mind-blowing read I was expecting due to all the hype. I think I will see the movie because it might work better in that format? I don’t know. I’ll write a review soon.
We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie // ★★★★★ // I read my first book for #NonFictionNovember2016! This was only 50 pages, but so worth every second and cent that went into it. I highlighted several sentences and paragraphs, and I’ll be thinking back on it for a while.
I don’t think I watched a lot this week, to be honest. I didn’t really have the time. I did watch the new episodes of Scorpion and Lucifer, because I love those shows. And I watched a few episodes of Chicago P.D. I had never seen this show before, but it seemed interesting, and I do love me some crime shows. I’m enjoying it, even though I’ve only seen like 4 episodes.
I had one more driving class (of 2 hours, as always) this week. I should have 4 more hours, but they’ve been put off because a new law will be introduced in December that will let me get a learner’s permit again. It’s a long story, and I don’t want to get into it. Let’s just say I got unlucky a few years ago, and I might get lucky now. Don’t worry, I didn’t do anything bad. When you have a learner’s permit, it expires after 3 years. I let mine expire without taking my practical exam. 2 months before that happened, a new law was introduced that stated that those who let their learner’s permit expire, have to wait 3 years for a new one (or take all the classes with the driving school, which is really expensive).
I had another job interview with the same company I interviewed for last week.
I went to Pairi Daiza (which is kind of an interactive zoo-like place in Belgium). I’ll have a picture post on that soon!
That was my week! How was yours? Did you read, watch or do anything fun?
