I know, January is not over yet, but I’m confident that I won’t buy any more books this month. All together I got 21 books of which 10 are E-Books, that may or may not have been partly free on Amazon and 11 normal books in either paperback or hardcover.
I got two books in Germany, while I was there over Christmas and New Year’s to spend with my family and friends.
THE first one, “Still” (Silent), was a recommendation of my Godfather’s wife, and is by the German writer Zoran Drvenkar, who was born in Croatia but came to Germany at the age of 3.
The book tells the story of a girl that has escaped her captures, but hasn’t spoken a single word ever since she returned, and only sits on a chair and stairs out of the window. Mika Stellar now tries to find out more about the men who made her silent. He wants revenge for they did to her and won’t stop until he has found these men.
“When the lakes remain silent, silent death arises.
A man, who is looking for his daughter but loses his identity with it. A girl, staring out of the window for six year, waiting for someone to bring her the key to her memory. Four men and one mission, that consists of hunger and discipline, and doesn’t spare any sacrifice. A winter in Germany, a lake in the forest and shadows that move underneath the ice.”
There are many 5-Star ratings and praises for this book and it really sounds thrilling! Usually, I don’t read thrillers or crime a lot, but this definitely caught my attention.
THE second one is “Kein Rockstar für eine Nacht” (org. title “Lick”) by Kylie Scott. That was a lucky find while browsing the bookstore and it sounded interesting, so I bought it.
“Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.
Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.”
I’m actually super excited to read this book. It just sounds so entertaining and fun! And I really dig these kind of novels! Continue reading “January Bookhaul”
