Is it normal that I am sad as well as happy that the holidays are over? Christmas and New Year’s Eve are a wonderful time and I always enjoy being around my family, but it’s also a really busy time to be honest. I had to go to several parties and in between those I had to study. Yes, you read that right, here in Belgium we have to study during the holiday break. We have a rather unpleasant system where the finals take place after our holiday break (hurray Belgium). So not that great of a time actually. An upper side about it is that we do have some time off afterwards.
That aside I do am glad about all the presents my family gave me. Here are all the gifts they got me.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I am very excited to read this book. It’s highly praised by the book community and is named one of the best thrillers of 2015. So yeah, this will probably be my next read! It’s also being adapted into a movie with an amazing cast, so we have that to look forward to.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Also one of the best thrillers of recent years, so definitely a must-read. I have heard so many good things about this one that I just can’t get any more excited to read it. As people are calling The Girl on the Train the new Gone Girl must mean something, right.
