Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
The current Waterstones Book of the Month for July, AND based in Amsterdam, my interest was peaked, so I decided to pick up this book and I loved it!
Set in 1686, this is a historical novel with a bit of a twist. Eighteen year old Nella is sent to live with her new husband - a wealthy merchant with a secretive life. When her husband gives her a miniature version of their Amsterdam home as a wedding gift, Nella sets about furnishing it. But the Miniaturist that she commissions is very accurate… spookily accurate.
A beautifully written book, I found myself transported back into seventeenth century Amsterdam and wrapped up in the Brandt’s mysterious life. This is one of those stories that you look forward to getting lost in. I can certainly see why it was chosen as Waterstones Book of the Month.

Awesome :) I’ll get one knocked together :)
That’s insane. In the past week or so, I’ve had a massive influx of followers. I love you, fellow bookworms!
