So this was a week! On Monday I defended my thesis, and I was so relieved afterwards, and I was proud of myself! Which I don’t feel often, but I really was!
Then I finally saw my mom again on Tuesday, after 5 months! We packed up my room and flew back to the Netherlands on Thursday, were I saw the rest of my family, and my best friends came over for dinner! So all in all a very happy day! (also exhausting haha)
Most of the weekend I spend in the sun with a book 🙂
What I read this week (books with * have a review coming!):
Up close and personal* – Kathryn Freeman – 3 stars! Nice, easy read. Not the biggest fan of the drama at the end!
Scorch dragons – Amie Kaufman (audio) – 3.5 stars! This is such a fun series to listen to!
Mitosis – Brandon Sanderson – 2 stars! Very unnecessary novella (like 25 pages haha)
The angel of the crows* – Katherine Addison – DNF! Really wasn’t connecting with this one!
The oddmire: Changeling* – William Ritter – 4 stars! Very fun middle grade series, excited to continue!
The order of the pure moon reflected in water* – Zen Cho – 3 stars! I’m very conflicted about this book, I enjoyed it but also not much happened?!
The betrothed – Kiera Cass (audio) – 3 stars! Is this a good book? No. Did I enjoy it? yes!

Congrats on your thesis!!! What did you research?
I developed a analysis method so that the relation between the vitamin E concentration in blood and the development of certain diseases could be researched!
Much smarter than me.
Haha I guess it depends on where your interests are!
Haha I haven’t read one good review for The Betrothed, I’m happy you enjoyed your time reading it though! A City of Brass is absolutely amazing!
Haha I don’t think I have either, I just really wanted to try it out! It was good enough to listen to while playing on my switch haha!
It was! I need the sequel now!
I get the DNF on Angel of the Crows. I had a fun time because I really enjoy Sherlock Holmes stories, but it’s an easy one to bounce off of! Hope you enjoy Night of the Dragon.
Yeah I think if you like Sherlock Holmes, this could be better. But I’ve never been really into those stories!
I’m so excited to read that one!
Glad you enjoyed The Betrothed, I have…thoughts on that one lol. 🙂 Happy Reading, Evelyn!
it was enjoyable, but not great haha! (wasn’t a big fan of the ending though!)
So glad you liked Scorch Dragon!
Such a fun series to listen to!
Congrats on defending your thesis! Hope you have a great week, and enjoy your reading!
Great reading week! I haven’t had the chance to finish our buddy read of Pure Moon yet (I’m sorry ) but I’m thinking it’ll be a 3-star read for me, too.
haha no worries! I’m curious to your thoughts 🙂
Congrats on defending your thesis!! And I’m happy to hear you’re enjoying The City of Brass, I love that book!
I’m about to finish it, and it will definitely be on my favourites of the year (I think)
Oh yay I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying City Of Brass, it’s definitely one of the ebooks I own and need to pick up soon as it sounds incredible. And I love Little Women ☺️ I hope you’re having a lovely time back home ❤️
