Review: Erin Morgenstern – The Starless Sea

For many people, The starless sea by Erin Morgenstern is their most anticipated book of 2019. I haven’t read The night circus before, so I was a little hesitant about this book I have to admit. Is Morgenstern’s writing for me? However, I saw many positive ARC reviews of The starless sea, so I decided to dive right into it.

Review: Erin Stewart – Scars like wings

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

Mini reviews: The seven sisters serie by Lucinda Riley

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

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.
