I read books (and place a review here afterwards) in the following categories Mystery/Detective, British literature (mostly older books, from Gutenberg.org), Adventure, some Dutch lieterature and more.

My top favorite writers are John Galsworthy, Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens, but among my five-star reviews you will also find (debuts of) contemporary writers. A recent example is Gillian Flynn. I mostly read ebooks.

The Daughter of Time - Josephine Tey

Although this book is highly acclaimed, I cannot enjoy it, because of a lack of knowledge of English history. This knowledge is essential to read this book. All the historic persons make me dizzy. 

I stop reading at 33%.
