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.

Review: Nino Haratischwili – The Eighth Life (For Brilka)

Posted december 23, 2019 by Laurie in English, Recensies, Reviews, Roman / 6 Comments

The Eighth life (for Brilka) by Nino Haratischwili kept crossing my path for a while now, maybe a year or two, but I never picked it up. Let’s be honest, it’s a beast of a book, the Dutch version has 1,275 pages. The English one is 300 pages shorter – don’t ask me why -, but I wanted to read this family chronicle i my native language. After reading reviews of Haratischwili’s signing sessions in Amsterdam and The Hague back in November, I caved and bought the book and read it soon after.

Back in 2013, I accidentally discovered the Rizzoli & Isles series by Tess Gerritsen. I really liked these books, which led to me finishing and catching up on the entire series within a year. Besides, I read some other books by this author, with different experiences however. So when I got the chance to get a review copy of The shape of night, I immediately jumped on it out of curiosity.
