It’s that time of year again: Boekenfestijn was in town and this time I went a bit wilder than in previous years.

Yes, what you see there are 21 of the 34 books (so far) of the Morland Dynasty series by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. What makes it even worse is that the first one has been on the TBR for years now… (*blush*). They were so cheap! And they do look like the sort of books I’d love!

The others in the loot:

  • The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell – I’ve heard great things about it;
  • The Olive Tree: A Personal Journey Through Mediterranean Olive Groves by Carol Drinkwater – because I’ve always been fascinated by olives, olive oil and olive trees;
  • The Distance Between Us by Maggie O’Farrell –  I really liked The Hand That First Held Mine and wanted to try something else by her;
  • The Glass Painter’s Daughter by Rachel Hore – I know nothing about this one other than the blurb. It’s my blind choice of the year.
