Favoriete boeken

Via Goodreads worden elders op deze site mijn recent gelezen boeken gepubliceerd. Op deze pagina tref je mijn favorieten.

De grote Lundia kast in de huiskamer van mijn ouderlijk huis bevatte genoeg materiaal om even zoet mee te zijn. Zo las ik bijvoorbeeld De waanzinnige veertiende eeuw van Barbara Tuchman en de Het prive-leven van Mao (onthuld door zijn lijfarts Li Zhisui). Maar het meest dankbaar ben ik voor mijn kennismaking met de wereld van SciFi/Fantasy via oa deze werken:

Zoals veel mensen had ook ik een Stephen King fase, dus die mag uiteraard niet ontbreken. Twijfel tussen deze en The Stand. En Misery. En Carrie. En Pet Semetary. Argh, zoveel goeie werken. Ik kies toch deze, tijdloos en totaal uniek.
