Book review : The Muse

The Muse is one of those books you simply can't put aside. You have to keep reading until the puzzle is complete. I loved the historic contexts of this story, taking place in two very different and both really interesting times and places. On top of that there's this question, will in the end the truth be revealed or not?

Book review : If life was a circle, where would you be?

Having a lifelong fascination for circles, this time Inez van Oord refers to life itself as a circle. A circle like a compass; a compass with 'Mind' as North and 'Body' being South, 'Self' as East and 'Others' being West. A compass to help us find our own balance within those four poles. A compass that can guide us back to the centre of it all, back to the essence of what makes life worth living.

Book review : Miss yellow hair, hello!

As a digital nomad, the Dutch Iris Hannema travels the world while writing articles for newspapers and magazines such as National Geographic. The combination of a job as a (traveling) journalist/photographer, her humour and adventurous mind, makes that she ends up in unfamiliar places and the craziest of circumstances. Therefore this young woman has countless of stories to tell and already published two books that are filled with her experiences. Stumbling across her first book 'Miss yellow hair, Hello!' in the local library left me with no other option; this book had to be read.

Book review : The Happiness Project

One morning like many others Gretchen Rubin, a NYC-based writer and mother of 2 young children, has the sudden realization that she's in danger of wasting her life. She feels like the years are passing her by and decides it's time for a change. Not because she isn't happy, but because she knows she can be happier. Knowing nothing will change unless she makes it change, she decides to dedicate a year trying to be happier and starts her own happiness project. A project that results in a blog, a website and eventually turn into a book. The book that I've been reading, several times.
