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.Keep Reading »

At the beginning of this month, Now is everything by Amy Giles got its Dutch release. From the moment I saw the synopsis, I knew that I wanted to read this book. I did nearly as soon as I bought it and I have no regrets.

A few months ago I stumbled upon the book Sparrow by Sarah Moon. I was not that sure whether I wanted to read it, but decided to give it a go. On the other hand, Circe by Madeline Miller has been on my tBR for more than a year. Two totally different books, but I will bring them together in this mini-reviews post.Keep Reading »
A while back, I stumbled upon Scars like wings by Erin Stewart. I immediately added it to my TBR, because such stories interest me.

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