Hi everybody, I’m Marieke. If you think Marieke is a strange name, it’s a pretty normal name in the Netherlands where I live. Besides an addicted reader I’m a stay-at-home mom to my two little monsters and I’m madly in love with my husband.
I have loved reading since I was a little girl. When I was supposed to do my homework, my mother always found me with a book hidden under my desk so I was able to read some chapters before dinner. As a young girl I was addicted to the Famous Five series by Enid Blyton, even thinking about it brings back found memories..
I can’t remember a time not reading, although there were times I wasn’t focused enough to hide myself in my bookworld. A certain trilogy – yes, I’m talking about Fifty Shades of Grey – changed it all, I went from thrillers, suspense and mystery to (erotic) romance. And that’s what I have been reading ever since. I love indie authors and the stories they bring; Kristen Ashley, Aurora Rose Reynolds, Brynne Asher. Just to name a very few of the authors who’s stories I truly adore.
So why do I write reviews? Well, I read so much that hubby-dear started to give me ‘the look’. And that made me thinking.. What else can I do with my love for books? Opening my own bookstore was a possibility, but a very expensive one.. Reviewing books was my second thought, and since I was once told my English was too bad for a job I thought, why not.. This way I can a. read and review books I like and b. practice my English..
I hope you enjoy my blog, if so let me know on my facebook page! I’ll look forward to chat with you about books!
You can always ask me questions about books and what they are about. Some of my dear bookfriends have certain subjects, like cheating, they don’t want to read about in their romance books. So I answer those questions honestly, without giving too much spoilers ofcourse. If you want a quick answer, you can always contact me at my facebook page!
