Hi, I’m Sara.

This site holds my writings, from book reviews, to articles about software testing, to crafting updates, to listings of the books I have read.

My rating system is based on five stars. I rate books based on my expectations and what a books aims to be. This means that the brilliant “Fahrenheit 451” gets five stars because I thought it would be good, people said it was good, and it was good, but “A Closed and Common Orbit” also gets five stars because in its series, in its style, I really enjoyed it and was not disappointed.

  • Five stars: This book was really good and I couldn’t put it down
  • Four stars: This book was pretty good, and I enjoyed it
  • Three stars: This book was disappointing, I finished but… meh
  • Two stars: This book is terrible
  • One star: I’m throwing away this book, no one should read it

from The Netherlands.

Here you’ll find my collected works. From articles I have written in a professional capacity (in Dutch), to book reviews and books read, to crafting updates. Not updated regularly, but I hope interesting nonetheless.

And about the name… At first I was a fan of the tv show The Nanny. And then I became a fan of Bette Midler, the Divine Miss M is her alter-ego. Just when I was first becoming active online these two fandoms came together in “divinenanny”. Because it’s a screenname only in use by me, and it’s always available I kept it. So if you see divinenanny somewhere online, it’s more than likely me.
