In 2016, I read the fifteen books that currently form the Dresden Files. I was an immediate fan and read them at a pace I hadn’t achieved before. I found out there was a bundle of short stories called Side Jobs, added it to my list and never really got to reading it. I guess I procrastinated. Most of the stories take place between books ten and thirteen. As I had read further than that, it wasn’t always my first priority. But as the news came this month that Jim Butcher will release a second short story collection in June, I thought it was the perfect time to read this one. Here’s my review!
It was September when I added Six of Crows to my list of books to read. Back then, I only knew that it was a fantasy and a fiction book. And it received immensely good reviews. So it ended up on my list and remained there until the first of January this year. I started this book of which I actually had no clue what it was about. Here’s my review of the book!

Wow. I just finished my 51st book of 2017. Holy cow. I can’t believe that number! After How Google Works, I thought I’d start reading Influx and see. Quite sure I’d finish it next month. And now BAM, it’s done! Get ready for my last review of 2017. Crap, now I got to revise my previous post about my 2017 in books. Oh well, here’s my view on Influx by Daniel Suarez.
Halfway through December and I’ve managed to read my 49th book of this year. Can I reach 50? You’ll find out soon! In the mean time, I’d like to share my thoughts on Bird Box. I must warn that there is text in this review that some might consider as spoilers. I’ll try to keep them at a minimum. Ready? Let’s go!
This year I’ve said it a lot. And yes, I have read a lot of books from authors that I like. Peter Clines is one of them. I am a fan of the Ex-Heroes series and his other connected multi-verse books. So naturally, I was excited when I heard he was writing a book about time travel. I was really looking forward to this book!

Two books came out this year that I really wanted to read before the end of December. One of those books is Artemis, which is the second book of the author of The Martian. I am a big fan of that book, so I was eager to read this one. I finished it just now, so this post is hot off the press!
I’ve been out some time. Focusing on my sore neck rather than reading books. Now that I’m better, I went back to achieving my November goal. The next book on my list was Last Shot, the final part of the Tim Rackley series. After the great Troubleshooter, I was hoping for a great finish that could mount up to the spectacular Orphan X series. Here’s what I think of it.
