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: Nino Haratischwili – The Eighth Life (For Brilka)

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.

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.

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.
