I am almost done work and will need some books to read during my summer break. I'll have to check that one out!  Thumb up

Principessa...that's the one!

Anne...It's really out of my normal reading comfort zone, but if you like thrillers, I really recommend it.  I'm STILL thinking about the twist at the end, and how the author really manipulated my thinking!  Usually you can figure out twists in thrillers because you just think of the most outlandish twist, and that's usually it.  But this one really knocked me for a loop!

Edit:  Anne (or anyone!), if you read it, shoot me a PM and let me know what you thought of it!

Just bought it on my Kindle - can't start to read it. I love books that keep you on your toes. I'll let you know what I think once I'm done it!

These days I finished the Dutch version of The Windsor Knot by S.J. Bennett in approximately 2 hours. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed, it couldn't fascinate me as much as I expected and/or thought.





A review from another reader:

I just finished a biography of Wallis Windsor, called The Duchess of Windsor: The Uncommon Life of Wallis Simpson, which I enjoyed.  The author (Greg King) was a little more gentle with Wallis than some other authors or historians have been about her, but somehow I didn't mind.  All the known facts seemed to be there, just rather more sympathetically rendered.   I thought the chapters on her youth and her first marriage were especially good.   It was originally published in 1999 but the version I read had updated afterwords.

I just read my first Margaret Haddix novel, Double Identity, I totally loved it but there's no other books of her translated in greek.
I really loved the suspense, the whole plot. There were times it reminded me of Dean Koontz - not bad in my book! (pun intended)
Maybe it's time to start ordering books from abroad because I googled her and I read the plot from some of her stand-alone novels and her trilogy on a different point of view on the Cinterela story and despite being "young adult" I found the plots very interesting and intriguing.

Finished the book this week and I really enjoyed it! I agree with the twist - it's not what I was expecting at all. I actually had my money set on a minor character meaning more than they actually did. Great recommendation!

Currently reading “A Court of Thorns and Roses”. If anyone likes fantasy and romance, I recommend it!
