Review: Jojo Moyes – The giver of stars

Review: Jojo Moyes – The giver of stars

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

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.

Review: Nino Haratischwili – The Eighth Life (For Brilka)

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. After reading reviews of Haratischwili’s signing sessions in Amsterdam and The Hague back in November, I caved and bought the book and read it soon after.

Review: Tess Gerritsen – The shape of night

Back in 2013, I accidentally discovered the Rizzoli & Isles series by Tess Gerritsen. I really liked these books, which led to me finishing and catching up on the entire series within a year. Besides, I read some other books by this author, with different experiences however. So when I got the chance to get a review copy of The shape of night, I immediately jumped on it out of curiosity.

Review: Amy Giles – Now Is Everything

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.

Review: Erin Morgenstern – The Starless Sea

Review: Erin Morgenstern – The Starless Sea

For many people, The starless sea by Erin Morgenstern is their most anticipated book of 2019. I haven’t read The night circus before, so I was a little hesitant about this book I have to admit. Is Morgenstern’s writing for me? However, I saw many positive ARC reviews of The starless sea, so I decided to dive right into it.
