Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Emily @ Budget Tales Bookblog. The purpose of this meme is to talk all things Goodreads like you want, but it mainly is used to highlight a book that has been on your TBR. My Goodreads TBR is long, so without further ado, here’s my pick for the week.

Review: The Memory Keeper of Kyiv by Erin Litteken

For nearly a year, Ukraine has been troubled. On the 24th of February 2022, Russia invaded the country with as goal to annexate it. Since that day, both countries have been at war. Violence and war unfortunately is not strange to Ukraine. The history of Russia and the countries previously being part of the Sovjet Union knows a lot of oppression and violence. When I heard of the novel The Memory Keeper of Kyiv, I knew I wanted to read it to obtain more knowledge about the history of Ukraine.

Review: Huntress (Ash #0.5) by Malinda Lo

A few years ago, I introduced myself to Malinda Lo’s work. I’ve read Last Night at the Telegraph Club, a LGBTQIA+ historical fiction set in San Francisco during the Red Scare in the 1950s. I really enjoyed this read, so when the Dutch translation of Huntress was announced, I was really excited. It’s a fantasy based on Chinese folklore and mythology, with LGBTQIA+ characters as well. Did it meet my high expectations?

Review: It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover

As many of you may know, Colleen Hoover is one of my autobuy and autoread authors. This was already the case before she got so incredibly popular on Booktok. I don’t have TikTok myself so I don’t know what people say about her books on there, but just a few of her books get all the attention while others don’t get any. One of these books is It Ends With Us. I’ve read this book years ago, before TikTok even existed. At the time, I thought it was a powerful novel which didn’t need a sequel. Guess what? There came a sequel, because of the hype on Booktok. I was yet sceptical, yet eager to read it. Because, a Colleen Hoover book never disappointed me before. Well, It Starts With Us did.
