Due to a full bookcase, I cannot accept RBACK offers. Thank you for thinking about me, but I first have a bookcase full of books to read.

After a long reading break due to no interest and video games (still my favorite hobby), I decided to start reading more to improve both my Dutch and English language skills. Thanks to bookcrossing, I have the opportunity to read books I would otherwise leave in the store. The genres I like are fantasy, non fiction (topics about nature, science, history) and detectives. Genres that I do not like are chick-lits and books with a lot of romantic fluff (a good example are the fantasy books with a naked man torso on the cover, a red flag for romantic fluff)

You can find me on goodreads (saskia smits), where I have reviews on most of the books I've read since 2015

In May I read a book set or about WWII to remember the liberation of the Netherlands.

2015: The Dairy of Anne Frank
2016: Schindler's List
2017: The Boy in the Striped Pyjama
2018: Oorlogskinderen
