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!

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!

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.

When I saw the Dutch translation of Bex Hogan’s Viper in the upcoming releases sections everywhere early November, I was not sure whether I wanted to read it or not. However, I tried it, because this book kept me curious. Did I like it as much as I’d expected? Time for a bullet point review!
