Review: Colleen Hoover – Verity

Posted januari 20, 2020 by Laurie in English, Recensies, Reviews, Thrillers / 0 Comments

Before I start with the actual review, I would like to provide some trigger and content warnings. To be honest, I don’t know where to begin regarding these warnings, because this entire book is a big trigger warning from start to finish. A car accident, death, murder, traumatic experiences, manipulative lying…… Verity by Colleen Hoover contains all these triggers. Therefore, I would like to say the following on this subject. If your mental health is unstable and if you are sensitive to different kinds of triggers, this book might not be the best one to pick up for you. This book could make you feel rather unsafe because of the triggers. The first trigger is already on the first page and it doesn’t stop until you close the book. So please be aware of this whenever you decide to pick Verity up. If you still want to read my review, click on “continue reading”.

Review: Jojo Moyes – The giver of stars

Posted januari 18, 2020 by Laurie in English, Recensies, Reviews, Roman / 0 Comments

It has been a few years since I read a book by Jojo Moyes. To be exact, that was Me before you in 2016. After this book, I didn’t pick up any other book by this author, although I bought The horse dancer. In October 2019, The giver of stars was released and this synopsis sounded interesting. Books, horses and horse riding? Count me in!

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: 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!
