November Bookhaul & Wrap-up

Oh dear, I was definitely too eager with my reading pile last months. I planned to read sooo much and did actually only read 1 book and listened to 2 audiobooks. Ups.
I’m about halfway through Illuminae and I really like the book but I guess I just been to distracted (by netflix) and got into a reading slump…

The book I read was Still by Zoran Drvenkar and I listened to The Ciphers of Muirwood and The Void of Muirwood both by Jeff Wheeler.

Anyway, I won’t be doing a TBR for December and just see what will happen.

As for the books I got: I bought 4 books and got 2 for review.

September TBR

I guess I have mentioned it before, but I usually don’t plan on what I will read every month. I pick a book up according to my mood and on what I feel like reading. Otherwise, this would put way too much pressure on me. But I have received rather a lot of books from Netgalley this week, so I had to make a September TBR.

February Wrap-Up [Short opinions on the books]

I’m surprised by myself but I actually managed to read 5 books in the month of February. Yaaay!

Needless to say that I’m more or less satisfied with it. Considering that I’m rather busy with real life, I think 5 books is a good amount.

Unfortunately there wasn’t a 5-STAR book amongst them but three 4-STAR books and two 3-STAR books.

These Broken Stars – Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

I read this book within the Booksplosion February group read-along on goodreads. Discussions on the book can be found here.

Before I start my review, can we talk about how f*cking beautiful this cover is?
It’s so fantastic!
OMG!!!

I have to admit that I didn’t really knew a lot about this book itself, except that it was something about space and a spaceship. I didn’t even read the synopsis of it (should I feel ashamed of it). Generally it is said to be like “Titanic in Space”, but I didn’t knew that either until after I finished reading it.

!!!ATTENTION THE REVIEW COULD BE KINDA SPOILERY!!! Continue reading “These Broken Stars – Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner”

Updated Updates Updates & currently reading

Sorry for being absent the entire month, but life is rather crazy now with lots of things to do like Uni, Thesis, Internship, gym…you get the point – just normal life.

I hope I will manage to post some more updates throughout this week. I have prepared another Review that will go online tomorrow evening, and I’m planning to post my February book haul (a huge one!)  too by the end of the week and maybe my what I have read during the past 2 months – let’s see about that.

Currently I have hard times to decide what to read. I started “These Broken Stars” by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner last night but somehow it feels like I can’t get into it right now.

Synopsis:

“It’s a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets to the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder – would they be better off staying in this place forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

The first in a sweeping science fiction trilogy, These Broken Stars is a timeless love story about hope and survival in the face of unthinkable odds.”

I will read later a little more and see how I will like it. If I still have the feeling the book is not for now, there’s plenty of other books to read in my shelf and on my Kindle. Yet it will be difficult to decide…(the struggle…)

So stay tuned for more!
