That March was a strange month is probably the understatement of the decade. In the Netherlands, we got our first case of Covid19 in the last weekend of February, but there was no reason to panic yet. So, life was normal in the first weeks of March. However, that changed on March 12 and even more on March 15. Measures have been taken and rules were implemented. Social distancing became a thing. Many people struggled with reading and this certainly applies to me too. I missed my commute as I had to work at home. However, I started to build in some reading time before and right after work to keep this reading routine. Therefore, I still managed to read a good amount of books in March. Here is what I have been reading!

Review: Sarah J. Maas – House of Earth and Blood

Posted maart 30, 2020 by Laurie in English, Fantasy, Recensies, Reviews / 0 Comments

On March 3, it was finally out in the world, probably the most anticipated book of 2020. Or at least, it was for me. I’m talking about House of earth and blood by Sarah J. Maas. I wanted to start this book immediately, but unfortunately I had to finish another disappointing book first. As soon as that one was finished, I dove into this big book.

Read in | February

Posted maart 1, 2020 by Laurie in Boekenpraat, Booktalk, English / 1 Comment

I’m a little later than I’d anticipated, this post was meant to go live this morning at 6AM. However, I have been really busy yesterday and I unfortunately came down with a cold, so this post just wasn’t finished. At the start of February my energy was a bit lacking and therefore I couldn’t read as many books as I wanted. I still haven’t lowered my challenge, but maybe I need to do so. However, I found my reading flow back later this month, only to slump a little bit again at the end. Oh well, let’s look into the books I’ve read in February!

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.
