Book recommendations #1

Hi everybody,
Welcome to a new instalment on my blog.
As you all know (well, the you who still bother to come here now and then) I don't and didn't have much spare time lately. I've started an intern-ship that is part of my university-studies and is only for five weeks, I have two and a half week left, that means I'm halfway through. On top of all that I came down with a nasty eye-infection that still hasn't healed properly and made reading, at least in the first two weeks, really painful (not that that did stop me much anyway). So, I don't have time/eyes to read as much as I would like to and I have even less time to write something here which makes reviews a very hard task for me. So,I spend a big chunk of time every day travelling, at least three hours a day I spend on a train to and from *work*, which actually gives me some opportunity to read, good books and bad books and I thought I could write a few lines about the books I read, give you recommendations until I find the time again to write proper reviews.

The book that has impressed me most these past weeks is the utterly breathtaking and wonderful North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley

North of Beautiful is actually one the best books I've read so far this year. It leaves you thinking, it still hasn't left my mind, it has oozed through my skin, is still surrounding me. Apparently there are two kinds of North, the True North and the Magnetic North. But there are many kinds of beautiful, right? Or is there a True Beautiful? Is it only skin-deep. Shallow?

Yeah, well, apparently I'm in love with this book. READ IT! :)
