First Impressions: Rivers of London

Anyone whose been reading my blog for a while knows that I am an absolute freak when it comes to London. Favorite place on earth. And then you might wonder why it’s only after such a long time that I pick up this book, Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch even though it explores London in such depth. Well, I’ve only this year brought it over myself to move out of my YA safe space and to explore some more genres, like fantasy crime. Here are my first impressions!

First Impressions: Crown of Midnight

For the time being, I put down Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in order to continue with the Throne of Glass series, something I should have done long ago! I’m more than 150 pages into the second book, so you can’t really call it first impressions, but here are my thoughts!

First Impressions: Chain of Gold

For some reason, I believed the corona break would be some kind of stress reliever, to stay at home and do like two hours of school every day, but no: our teachers have been actively sending us work and so I’ve had less time than I would have had in school?!

First Impressions: rereading Six of Crows!

Then on Saturday morning while I was peacefully sipping my tea and reading 1894, I had the incredible urge to start rereading Six of Crows that very minute. And I did.

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for my current reading situation! It’s been cooling down around here (temperature and stress wise haha) and that means I’ll have some more time to read in the near future. Not today, however, as I spent some time with my two best friends after school and now I’m soon meeting my aunt for dinner. Anyways, here’s my current reading situation!

First Impressions: A Winter’s Promise

This is one of the books I got for Christmas (list here!) and I started reading right away. My mum got me this book because the last time we went to the book store, we found an astonishing cover with a great story that turned out to be number two of this series called The Mirror Visitor – and she got me the first book and I love it. Here are my first thoughts!
