„Would you still love me if you knew all my parts?” Hell yes, Jonathan, you fabulous queen ❤️
Up next! That‘s a beautiful dedication ❤️
I‘m not finished yet, but I just wanted to let you know that it is AMAZING on audio. It feels more like an audio drama because they put so much effort into the fictional true crime podcast parts.
So I‘m not much of a romance reader in general, but sometimes I just need something that gives me all the feelings. I loved Alexa as a main character, she reminded me a lot of my best friend. Although I wanted to smack Drew because of his “I don‘t do relationships” attitude, I enjoyed seeing them together. I read the whole thing in two sittings - and only because I badly needed sleep, I would have done so in one otherwise. 😊👍
A solid four star read. It was interesting to see the friendship dynamics shift into something destructive. Although I must admit I skipped over some of the Shakespeare excerpts - I was not really in the right mood to wrap my head around them 🙈
That‘s about 10 hours done for #24b4monday. I won‘t reach 24, but my goal of 12 hours can be achieved easily.
So far I‘ve read for about six hours, mostly audiobooks. But now I‘m digging my way through this book. It does have some Secret History vibes, so I hope it does not disappoint.
I also realized that listening to playlists based on my current read helps me keep focused.
Bridge of Clay has been sitting on my shelf unread since it‘s publication week, and it has been obviously more than a year. So I figured I should at least narrow my unread Zusaks down to one. So far, it‘s really heartwarming and funny.
So I‘ve been missing in action for about a year and it has been a bit of a rough one. I moved to a new place but only some months later had to end a relationship of five years - so I‘ll have to move again soon. My dad had a heart attack, followed by a difficult operation. Aaaand I tore both ligaments in my ankle.
But I‘m ready to dive into Litsy again and want to recommend this fabolous hippo western novella collection. 😉
I don‘t know why it took me so lang to pick up a Robin Hobb book. It had a bit of a slow start, but I really liked being introduced to Fitz‘ talent that way. I‘m curious to see where this journey goes, I think the story is about to pick up some speed. And oh, the dogs. 💔
In a world where women are denied basically everything, two sisters must find their own way to fight back and change their future. For the first couple of chapters, I really wanted to shake some sense into Serina, but once lessons are learned both sisters really grew on me. Also, I finished it by the end of hour 10 for #24in48
So this is an amazing adaption of the podcast‘s first story! It is great to relive everything in this format, but even without having listened to a single Adventure Zone episode you will enjoy it 😉
Diving into The Adventure Zone comic I noticed the introduction is by none other than the wonderful Pat Rothfuss. The above description perfectly sums up my joy of finding this podcast 😊
Think Library at Mount Char, throw in some bots and let everything take place in South Africa. What a crazy ride!
@DuckOfDoom and I went a little crazy today - we took a bus from Hamburg to Berlin (3,5 h) and back just to do some book shopping 😇 can‘t wait to dive into these!
I didn‘t post a lot in June, but it was actually a great reading month. Kings of the Wyld was the best, although Circe and Only Human share a close second place.
Forgot to post this yesterday. Books with a focus on music always win my heart, and this one added an unlikely pair of investigators in the mix. I‘m glad this is a series, because I‘m really interested in what Frey & McGray will be up to in the next installments.
Starting this Sunday off with 4h 50min and 2 books down for #8intwo. Next up is Ninefox Gambit!
As with The Song of Achilles, I completely loved her writing. Circe‘s life is often hard and lonely, and still she manages to shine and to find her own kind of power. If you are into Greek mythology, this is a must. But even without any prior knowledge of the stories it is a truly fascinating tale.
This book was so much fun! When a glorious band of monster slayers gets back together to rescue one member‘s daughter, you are in for a wyld ride. Every main character has just enough background story to make your care about them and their group dynamic is wonderful. It‘s fantasy with a lot of heart and humor, just the way I like it. 😊👍🏻
If I had to compare it to something, I‘d say Welcome to Night Vale on drugs. Completely confusing but pretty much amazing. The plot climax happened with about 100 pages still to go, but the structure worked well. Thanks again @Cinfhen for including it in my secret santa package 😁
I‘m about halfway through and this book is just the best kind of bonkers 😄 i can already recommend it if you‘re into super-weird and gory stories and being left in the dark about what the hell is actually going on.
Had one of those weekends you can‘t really enjoy, and today was the mother of all mondays. On days like these I am extremely grateful for the magic that is reading. Rereading Neverwhere in the wonderful edition @DuckOfDoom gave me really helped me get through it and brightened my moon again
Thanks for the tag @Sarah83 😊 #friyayintro
1. I wanted to attend a concert my parents are giving with their sax ensemble, but I‘m down with stomach aches. So relaxing and reading it is.
2. ehm... both?
3. not yet, since I bailed on the first Flavia de Luce. 🙈
4. spending time with friends after our orchestra rehearsal yesterday
5. anyone who hasn‘t done this yet 😉
Already finished my first buy from yesterday‘s #litsymeetuphamburg. I completely loved it! Stories involving mythology are always something you can hook me up with.
Finished what will be my last #freakyfriday book (although I filed some of the list entries as tbr-later). The audiobook was so great! His mother is such a force ❤️
I managed to finish two #freakyfriday books to day 😁 this one had a lot more in store for me than I expected. There was not much of a romance plot, which I highly appreciated. And it was oh so heartwarming! I loved to see the Others warm up to Meg. Also, I want one of the ponies.
Sadly this was only a so-so for me. I read the novella some time ago and it read like a trash horror movie. For this book, it felt a little like reading the same thing all over again. The revelation at the end didn‘t come as a surprise for me. But, I liked that she put more science background and character development into it. #freakyfriday
