Review: Holly Black – The Queen Of Nothing

Posted november 28, 2019 by Laurie in English, Recensies, Reviews, Young Adult / 3 Comments

On November 19, the final installment of the “the folk of the air” series by Holly Black was released. The queen of nothing was supposed to release in January 2020, but we got lucky and got it two months earlier. I immediately started this book, did I like it as much as I had hoped for? Note: this review contains spoilers for both The cruel prince and The wicked king.

Review: Erin Stewart – Scars like wings

Posted november 11, 2019 by Laurie in English, Recensies, Reviews, Young Adult / 1 Comment

A while back, I stumbled upon Scars like wings by Erin Stewart. I immediately added it to my TBR, because such stories interest me. First of all, I haven’t read any book about a burn survivor in Young Adult bfore. Furthermore, this story shows courage and empowerment, themes that are explored more and more these days.

  • Representation: Burn survivor, anxiety, insecurity, depression
  • Trigger warnings: Graphic description of burns and scars, (re-experiences of) a traumatic experience, bullying, suicide attempt

Mini reviews: The seven sisters serie by Lucinda Riley

Posted november 4, 2019 by Laurie in English, Recensies, Reviews, Roman / 2 Comments

I’m known for reading a lot of Young Adult books, but I like to expand my horizon and to read different genres as well. It was in September 2018 that I started reading The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley, because everyone kept raging about it in a good way and the books were literally everywhere. However, I deleted my first review of the first book because A) it was trash and B) I found it more suitable to write one giant review post with all mini reviews. This blog post will be updated and re-published once I finish The sun sister, which will be out here in February 2020. And then again once the seventh book in this series is out.

(EN) Review: Brandon Sanderson – Skyward

Posted november 2, 2019 by Laurie in English, Recensies, Reviews, Young Adult / 6 Comments

It has been a while, but I’m going to try and write more English reviews again. So, let’s start with Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. Can you believe that this is my first book by this authro? He has written and published so many books already and I haven’t read any of them. Well, I finally listened to the Skyward audiobook and I don’t understand why I didn’t pick up one of Sanderson’s books before.
