Der 11-jährige George soll, während seine Mutter seinen großen Bruder im Krankenhaus besucht, auf seine blinde Großmutter aufpassen. Ihm ist nicht ganz wohl bei der Sache, hat ihm die stark übergewichtige Frau doch schon früher Angst gemacht. So richtig unwohl wird ihm aber erst, als seine Omi plötzlich stirbt …
Oh my, oh my. What an insane month!
I didn’t only get around to read a lot, I also bought waaaay too many books. Oopsie!
But I have to say I didn’t buy a lot of books in December, January, and February so I think it’s okay to go over the tops once in a while. Also, I was on vacation at my parents’ in Germany and of course I had to order some (used) books while being there and I did a little shopping too…
So I accumulated 21 books altogether. I know, I know…it’s massive. I was hoping to be able to picture all of the books, but the package I have been waiting to arrive for ages, but they haven’t arrived yet and I lend the other book to my friend.
Some of the books I ordered used from Rebuy, others I got on sale in German bookstores and others were just regular priced books. There are many German books – sorry guys! I will link you the English translation if available.
I’m pleased to tell you that I’m finally out of my reading slump that lasted for way too long. March really was an incredible month; generally and reading wise. Can you believe that I have read 7 books and listened to 6 audiobooks?
All together I have read 4179 pages and listened to nearly 50 hours of audiobooks! This was only possible because I have the possibility to listen to audiobooks during work, and because I was sick for one week and had a week of holiday that I spent at my parents place in Germany (= plenty of travel time).
But without further ado, here’s the complete list of last month.
EDIT: Somehow there’s some issue with the formatting and putting links behind the picture, so you can find the ratings from here. Sorry for the mess, but when I add a caption the same mess happens. Continue reading “March Wrap-up 2016”
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.
