Flashback Friday: What did I actually read? #6

Posted januari 3, 2020 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktalk, English / 0 Comments

On Kwante‘s I found the series “shopaholic exposed”. She took it over from Candyce & Isabelle, who called this series “looking back on our bookhauls”. The goals of this meme is to look back on your old bookhauls and to check whether you actually have read the books you added back then or not. As I often have huge hauls it’s time to get myself exposed and therefore I’m taking over this series.

Today I will look into my bookhaul of September 2017.

Review: Tomi Adeyemi – Children of Virtue and Vengeance

Posted januari 2, 2020 by Laurie in English, Recensies, Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

After about 1.5 years, the wait was finally over and we were able to continue reading in “The Legacy of Orïsha” series. Children of virtue and Vengeance got its release last December and because this was my only anticipated book for that month, I wanted to read it as soon as possible. Was it worth the long wait? Please beware of spoilers of Children of blood and bone within the synopsis.

Posted januari 1, 2020 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktalk, English / 0 Comments

WWW-Wednesday is a meme I’ve seen on a lot of blogs, so I have no idea who came up with it first. The purpose of this meme is pretty simple: tell us what you have read last week, what you are currently reading and what you will be reading next. You do so by answering the following questions:

  • What have you read last week?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What will you be reading next?

Happy new year! I can’t believe it’s 2020 already and that I’m publishing my first blogpost of the year right now. I have to look back on 2019 for a bit, because what did I read in December? December was like the worst reading month for me this year, it’s ridiculous.

Bookhaul | December 2019

Posted december 31, 2019 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktalk, English / 3 Comments

The final day of the decade, the year and the month December. The last day of the month traditionally means a bookhaul. There were not many books releasing this month, so I caught up on the books I wanted to buy earlier. I still had gift cards, so here I go. One book is missing, but that book is missing in my collection too. I bought it, but there are problems with the download link, so it’s not mine yet. Well, what did I actually buy?

Review: Bex Hogan – Viper

Posted december 28, 2019 by Laurie in English, Recensies, Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

When I saw the Dutch translation of Bex Hogan’s Viper in the upcoming releases sections everywhere early November, I was not sure whether I wanted to read it or not. However, I tried it, because this book kept me curious. Did I like it as much as I’d expected? Time for a bullet point review!
