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 god amount of books in March. Here is what I have been reading!

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: 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”.
