Favoriete boeken

Via Goodreads worden elders op deze site mijn recent gelezen boeken gepubliceerd. Op deze pagina tref je mijn favorieten.

De grote Lundia kast in de huiskamer van mijn ouderlijk huis bevatte genoeg materiaal om even zoet mee te zijn.

Maar het meest dankbaar ben ik voor mijn kennismaking met de wereld van SciFi/Fantasy via oa deze werken:
