(EN) Review: Jennifer L. Armentrout – The Darkest Star (Origin #1)

When The Darkest Starr by Jennifer L. Armentrout was published in Ocotober 2018, I just finished the third book in the Lux series. I already met Luc and I knew I wanted to read this book. However, I had to wait until I finished Lux, to avoid spoilers. I finished that series in February, so, it was finally time to read The Darkest Star.

It has been a while, but I have another bunch of mini reviews for you. Two of these are novellas, so mini reviews make lots of sense. Furthermore, I have two books I don’t have much to say about, so here we go.

(EN) Review: Rachael Lippincott – Five Feet Apart

Somewhere in the fall of last year, I came across Five Feet Apart. The plot interested me, so I saved it on Storytel. However, I never came around reading it until I saw it coming up again everywhere. The movie won’t be out in the Netherlands till June, so will the translation of the book.

Representation: Cistic Fibrosis, gay rep, POC rep. Trigger warnings: (mentioning of) death, grief, loss, heartbreak.

(EN) Review: Taylor Jenkins Reid – Daisy Jones & The Six

This book and therefore review contains te following trigger warnings: alcohol and drug abuse, addiction, sexual assault, unwanted pregnancy, emotional abuse.

At the start of 2019 I went browsing to the “books released this year” section on Goodreads and I saw this book by Taylor Jenkins Reid popping up. I absolutely love The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo, so I immediately added Daisy Jones & The Six to my TBR. But was Daisy able to top Evelyn?

(EN) Review: Holly Black – The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2)

After reading The Cruel Prince for the first time, I really didn’t like it. However, everyone was raging about The Wicked King, so I decided to reread The Cruel Prince. This time around I liked it and immediately bought The Wicked King. I finally read this highly anticipated sequel and I totally understand this high anticipation.

(EN) Review: Roshani Chokshi – The Gilded Wolves

One of the most hyped and anticipated books of the first few months of this year was definitely The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi. I was a little on the fence about this book, but after seeing so much positivity about it I decided to grab a Kindle copy.

(EN) Review: helen Hoang – The Kiss Quotient (The Kiss Quotient #1)

A few months ago, back in summer 2018, you couldn’t open social media or Goodreads without seeing stuff about The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. Everybody seemed to love this book. However, I didn’t get around to it until just now, so I had no idea what the hype was al about. I chose to read this book in Dutch though as it didn’t get much attention. However, I want to post more English reviews so here is my review in English.

(EN) Mini-reviews: We Are Displaced // Half-Blood (Covenant #1)

Today it’s time for two mini reviews. After reading the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, I wanted to try one of her other series. Did I like it as much as I like Lux? But first, I will be stepping out of my comfort zone and review non-fiction.

(EN) Review: Leigh Bardugo – King Of Scars (Nikolai Duology #1)

Today I will be reviewing probably the most anticipated book of 2019, King Of Scars by Leigh Bardugo. Personally, I have been waiting for this book for about a year, but I was a little nervous since Crooked Kingdom highly disappointed me. Was King Of Scars able to live up to the hype?
