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!

WWW-Wednesday #43 | 15 January 2020

Posted januari 15, 2020 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktalk, English / 0 Comments

WWW-Wednesday is a meme I’ve seen on a lot of blogs, so I have no idea who came up with it first. The purpose of this meme is pretty simple: tell us what you have read last week, what you are currently reading and what you will be reading next. You do so by answering the following questions:

  • What have you read last week?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What will you be reading next?

Flashback Friday: What did I actually read? #6

Posted januari 3, 2020 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktalk, English / 0 Comments

On Kwante‘s I found the series “shopaholic exposed”. She took it over from Candyce & Isabelle, who called this series “looking back on our bookhauls”. The goals of this meme is to look back on your old bookhauls and to check whether you actually have read the books you added back then or not. As I often have huge hauls it’s time to get myself exposed and therefore I’m taking over this series.

Today I will look into my bookhaul of September 2017.

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.
