Bookreview / March 16, 2019

Chasing Forever
Blogtour , Bookteaser / December 14, 2018

Chasing Foreveris the final book in the series This Time Forever. Brian and Mal’s story is special in all sorts of ways. Even though these books all standalone, Brian has been there since the beginning–as the character everyone loved to hate in the first book, and the character who seemed to have more to him in book two. In this final story, I share who Brian really is, and hope you’ll all come to love him as much as I do. Then there’s Mal, his other half, my serious soldier who has been waiting all his life for a challenge like Brian. Sometimes we have to be knocked lower than ever before in order to reach that high, and Mal’s journey is one I treasure. I hope you enjoy reading this story of redemption and learning to live out loud. About Chasing Forever Old wounds, new directions, and a forever worth chasing. Malcolm Montgomery was a history teacher and track coach until an accident left him with two broken legs. He’ll recover, but life has knocked his feet out twice now. He’s not sure if he’s ready to try again, especially when it comes to love—and slick guys like Brian…

Rating my books
Personal / November 14, 2018

As a book blogger I am constantly rating and reviewing Books. But I have always found one thing to be very difficult. I just can’t get to grips with the 5 star rating system that everybody loves to use. Now like a lot of people I keep track of all my reading on Goodreads because it is an easy way to keep track of what you have read, what you still want to read and what you are reading at the moment. But there is one little thing that just irritates me very much. Whenever I have read a book they want me to Give it a rating.  I can choose between 0 and 5 stars, where 5 stars is the most perfect book I have ever read I guess. But after reading a lot of books I find that most of them fall in the 3 star category, with so far only 1 book making it up to 5 stars, namely a Dutch book about the Second World War. 3 stars to me means “It’s just a great book” but that is just a little bit too easy for me. Because even in the 3 star category, one book is…
