Gelezen in | juli 2020

In juli las ik 16 boeken. Dit komt mede door een weekje vakantie waarin ik best wel wat heb gelezen. Het is me helaas niet gelukt om de gehele Twilight serie te herlezen, maar as we speak herlees ik nu het laatste deel. Helaas legde ik in juli weer 2 boeken voortijdig aan de kant, […]

Mini-recensies: Een nieuwe Rebecca Yarros, een romcom en #BlackLivesMatter

Het is weer eens tijd voor wat mini-recensies. Ik heb een aantal boeken gelezen waar ik wel iets over te vertellen heb, maar wat te weinig is voor een uitgebreide recensie. In deze blog post lees je wat ik van De kleur van Colorado van Rebecca Yarros vind. Ook herlas ik Red, White, and Royal […]

#EducateYourself: Waarom Stamped Van Jason Reynolds Echt Vertaald Moet Worden

Ik hoef denk ik niet meer uit te leggen wat er in juni allemaal in de wereld is gebeurd. De dood van George Floyd eind mei leidde tot een golf aan protesten tegen buitensporig politiegeweld en institutioneel racisme. Ook in Nederland waren – en zijn – er demostraties van de Black Lives Matter beweging, de […]

Gelezen in | juni 2020

Maar even hè, het is alweer juli. Hoe dan?! Dit jaar is raar, maar desondanks vliegt de tijd. In juni kon ik mijn lekkere leesflow van mei helaas niet vasthouden. Dit resulteerde in 12 gelezen boeken deze maand, tegenover 21 in de maand mei. Het scheelt ook wel dat ik in mei een weekje vrij […]

Review: Suzanne Collins R..

Review: Suzanne Collins – The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

On May 19, it was here, the long awaited and highly anticipated prequel of one of the game changing series for YA books in general: The Hunger Games. When this prequel was announced, I wasn’t that excited as I had never read the original trilogy back then. I DNF’ed the first book halfway through. However, […]

Things The Underground Railr..

Things The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead Taught Me About One Of The Darkest and Most Racist Times In History

A few years ago, I saw The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead nearly everywhere. At that time, I didn’t pay enough attention to know what this book was all about. I was reading mainly YA and didn’t pay any attention to this book. However, it still stuck with me and when #BlackLivesMatter became trending topic […]

Review: Christelle Dabos – A Winter’s Promise

It has been months ago that I stumbled upon A Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos. However, the release of the Dutch translation got pushed back multiple times, but in April it was finally there. Safe to say that I wanted to read this highly anticipated book as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a 5-star […]

Review: Jennifer Armentrout – Storm and Fury

After finishing Every last breath, I knew that I wanted to continue with Storm and Fury straight away. In fact, I finished “The Dark Elements” this quickly to be able to start this spin-off series called “The Harbinger”. Warning, there are spoilers for “The Dark Elements” in the blurb of this book. Therefore, you definitely […]

Series review: Suzanne Collins – The Hunger Games

It’s confession time right here, right now on the blog. Why? I finally read The Hunger Games, twelve years too late. I figured as the release of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is just around the corner, I had to read the rest of the series. Everyone is so hyped about these books and […]

2 5-star mini reviews

2 5-star mini reviews

As the title of this blog post already states, contains this post 2 mini reviews of recent 5-star reads. I was supposed to publish seperate reviews for both books, but I figured mini reviews will do as well. Warning: both synopsis of the books contain spoilers as they are both sequels.
