April TBR

Hello guys!

My March was incredible good and now I’m very motivated to continue my reading habits like that. I guess my April TRB is a little too ambitious, but I will try my best.

So this month I plan to read 9 books and listen to 5 audiobooks.

Edit: 4/10: I guess my goal was waaaay to ambitious….

Bookish Update!

Woohooo, there’s finally a bookish update on here!

I have been into a horrible reading slump and my current work schedule doesn’t really help with that. I’m currently working some 45 to 50 hours per week so the only thing I’m doing when I get home at night is sleeping. But it’s getting better and I seem to find a rhythm.

I really haven’t been reading a lot these past months. I have been so inactive on Goodreads even but well, that’s life I suppose.

Anyway, I got around to listen to some audiobooks at work:

Cassandra ClareThe Bane Chronicles (4 Stars)
Elle KennedyThe Deal (4,5 Stars)
Timur VermesEr ist wieder da (Look who’s back) (4 Stars)

Currently, I’m listening to Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, and hope I get through it by Wednesday so that I can start the next one.

I also did a little book haul this month:

Sabaa TahirAn Ember In The Ashes

I started After and so far I actually do like it. I hope I can finish it soon, but I’m confident I will get through it soon. My holiday starts on Saturday and then I will be off to Germany to see and spend some time with my family. I can’t wait to see them, it’s been so long!

October Wrap up & November TBR

So, finally here it is, my October Wrap Up and November-TBR!

Last month I manage to read/listen to 8 books altogether but only because I have been sick in bed for a week straight.

October Wrap-up

2015-11-03 19.56.21

The first book I read was The Rose Society by Marie Lu. The Review can be find here.

Then picked up Scherbenseele (Glass bodies) – a German book. It’s by the Swedish author duo Erik Axel Sund. I rated it 4 Stars.

Next up I listened to the German version of Carrie (Stephen King). I expected more of it to be honest. It’s maybe because I knew the movie – the old original one from 1976 – for many, many years (basically since I was 10 when I saw it for the first time…) that made me not liking the book as much as I would have wanted to. It’s one of these rare expectations where the movie is better than the book. But there will probably come a full review. However, I have it 3 stars.

Then I finally finished The Banished of Muirwood  Jeff Wheeler. A review to it will come within this week. I rated it with 4,5 Stars. Continue reading “October Wrap up & November TBR”

Waiting On Wednesday #3: The Shadow Queen – C.J. Redwine

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY

Now with some of the most anticipated and hottest fall releases (Queen Of Shadows, The Rose Society, Illuminae)  published, it’s time to look what amazing books will be released next year.

Currently, I’m dying to read The Shadow Queen, which will be the first book of the Ravenspire Series by C.J. Redwine. According to her the book is a Snow White retelling and in the genre of dark epic fantasy. Also the books are standalones that all play in the same world. C.J. is currently talking about 2 books on her Goodreads profile.
