Ring | Koji Suzuki, Robert B. Rohmer, Glynne Walley

Mehso-so

The first thing to know about Ring the book is that it's really not at all like either the Japanese or US movie versions. The second thing to know is that it's not really scary (but it is weird and a little creepy). It's decently enjoyable, the relationship between the two main characters is well done, and it's an interesting 1990, pre-Internet take on viral media, but there are a couple of twists where I'm just, like...why?

Black Sheep | Rachel Harrison

This was a fun take on the “prodical child” trope, and I particularly loved the reveal of exactly what beliefs Vesper did not share with her family and how Harrison incorporated appropriate symbolism without falling into cliché.

A Multitude of Dreams | Mara Rutherford

I like Mara Rutherford‘s writing style. This did not grab my attention quite as much as Poison Season, but I still enjoyed it. I also like that it‘s a standalone fantasy book. I don‘t always want to read a series!

Fairy Tale | Stephen King

I enjoyed the first part of this book with the interaction between Charlie, Mr Bowditch and Radar the dog. However, when Charlie and Radar went down the tunnel to fairyland it seemed to lose its way somehow. It dragged a bit and some of it felt childish. I almost thought I was Alice in Wonderland! I was quite pleased when I finally finished it although I will miss Radar - she saved it for me.

Jari-chan I've had exactly the same experience with this book. 8h

The Perfect Friend | J. V. Cardy

Well now:
1. Samantha Heather Mackey , because she is me. She is.
2. Hmmm... Dracula? Walter Hartright?
3. Done. I just finished the #Netgalley ARC and while I didn't like the last two chapters and Epilogue too much, I really really liked this insanely twisty book. It often went directions that had me literally gasping out loud.

Yuki_Onna Thank you for the tag last week, Randall! This was fun!

To answer your question: I really really don't want to get your hopes up too high, because my mental health is (and has been for at least 1,5 years now) baaaddd... So don't expect results anytime soon (supposed you agree to this, anyway...)
But I'm talking about translation into German.
Your curiosity must be rewarded.. 😎

The_Penniless_Author Ooh, I would totally agree to that! (And of course, I understand it may never happen, just letting you know I'd be into the idea if you ever felt up to it.) I don't know how that works with my publisher, but I could find out if/when it becomes a reality. 9h
