"When something needs to be said, I'll say it even if the whole world grabs me by the neck and tells me to keep quiet."

I don't know when I said something that needed to be said without thinking about the consequences... for example when did you say something knowing it would throw the other off or even hurt the other... just to say what needed to be said?

Oh this book keeps me thinking...

My next book to read...

"Every true love and friendship is a story of unexpected transformation. If we are the same person before and after we loved, that means we haven't loved enough ..."

This is so true in so many ways...

I am done with the chronicles about Lia, Kaden and Rafe and I gotta say I liked it. I'm gonna miss them! Almost every main character did a transformation... a good one though.

While I read the last pages... I realised that I wished for another ending... an end wich is more real and believable... but it is what it is.

I rate this series with 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Not every book was good... but round about all of them made the cake.

It's dark out and the stars are shining... perfectly ended the first part...

The book is getting interesting... the storyline getting better after a few hiccups...

I hope to finish this book next week so I can finally write a review...

For now I am going to sleep...

Good night littens.

I am reading Oscar Wilde just for fun... the story about The Happy Prince is so wonderfully written. The Prince and his friend give everything they have to the poor people in the village and they demand nothing in return... nobody even seem to care who the giver of the gifts is. That's what makes the story so wonderful... where do you have such unconditional love?

My current read... liked the first book of this series more, but for now I wanna know how the story of Lia will come to an end... Will she save her Kingdom...? Will she get the answers from her mother...? Will she be sacrificed like it was told in the lost Vendan books?

Let's see where this book will take me...

Yanes @Buechersuechtling You won't regret it if you like an anti hero as a main character. 2y
Yanes @Buechersuechtling It is really interesting and so far I am really hooked on it. 2y

The Alchemist | Paulo Coelho

This book is full of philosophical messages, which can be overwhelming sometimes.

Manly this book shows that the actions of our life can be very complex and yet so easy if we follow the desires of our heart. The believe to follow your heart blindly is not the right way to get what you desire the most. You have to think about what your heart truly wants... and than act on it.

Keep in mind... never act or decide on fear.

5🌟 for a genius book.

I don't know what it is that I am so drawn to the old Egypt culture. The mystery of the pyramids and everything... to be so developed at the ancient time... how is this possible? Why don't we know more? Why is everything around that time a mystery?

MariaW I can feel you! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
Yanes @MariaW After I scrolled through your page I understand your excitement. Wow! You are going to Egypt soon... how long will you stay there? 2y
MariaW @Yanes I will stay there. It's always been my dream to move to Egypt, so I'm doing it. 😊 2y

I wanted to join in on the #bookishwouldyourather tag and pay @Kalalalatja my respect for coming up with another idea to know each other. So here are my answers:

1. Preferred to drink sweet wine 😁
2. I should not but... I judge based on the cover (most of the times)
3. Sunshine and books an the beach 😍
4. Realistic novels
5. Mr. Darcy it is with whom I wanna date 🤣

Now I am curious what y'all answered 🤓

Birthday Girl | Haruki Murakami

It is a simple and a short book about a young woman, her 20. Birthday and a magical wish.

And as simple as it was to read as simple is my opinion. I liked it. Short but nonetheless wonderfull.

My favourite quote:
"No matter what they wish for, no matter how far they go, people can never be anything but themselves."

Gave this one 4 ? out of 5

Breakfast at Tiffany's | Truman Capote

A bittersweet love story about a young girl who says that she don't want to be put in a cage.

I've read this book many times and saw the movie on more occasion than I could count. And I have to admit I like both versions.

The book version of Holly is darker but she stays true to what she believed in... the Hollywood adaptation gives the viewer what he/she wants... a happy ending.

This book is a 5🌟 must read.

rohit-sawant You summed up my feelings perfectly about both the book and the film. 2y
Yanes @rohit-sawant 😊 it is nice to hear that I am not the only one with those feelings. Thank you. 2y

Current read... started it yesterday late at night... couldn't find the sleep I needed.

The book is based on a true story which took place in the 90s. So far I am liking this book...

Buechersuechtling Oh, I didn't know that it's based on a true story. 😊 Interesting. Enjoy your read. 2y
Yanes @Buechersuechtling Thank you very much 😊 I hope it is good. Did you read it? 2y
Buechersuechtling @Yanes At first I wanted to but then I heard from many people that it is hardly an average read. Lengthy and the "old-wine-in-new-skins"-kind. So I decided to wait. If my public library will buy it, I'll give it a try. – But sorry… I don't wanted to slam it to you. ? 2y
Yanes @Buechersuechtling I like your honest opinion 😍 Thank you for that 🤗🤗. I still want to read the book and afterwards I will make up my own mind to it. 2y
Buechersuechtling @Yanes 😅 Hpheeeww. 😅 I was a little worried that I put you off from (enyoying) it. 2y

Woman crush Wednesday. I am absolutely in love with Maya Angelou. Her achievements in her life are so incredible. She was a poet and an activist. She fought for what she believed in. As mankind should always do... fight for what you love and believe in!

I confess to my shame that I heard of her after her death but I loved her from the first poem I read.

She truly is an inspiration.

Grimm Fairy Tales, Volume 3 | Ralph Tedesco, Joe Tyler
post image
Panpan

I didn't know that there are much darker versions of the Grimm Fairy Tales out there. This one however is definitely not for kids!

The images in this comic are more for adult eyes and the retold story is much darker, sexier and more bloody than I would have ever guessed.

I didn't like it much. I stick with the original. So I would not recommend it... however if you decide to read it go for the paperback not the E-book. I struggled big time.

Linear As a fan of the Luis Royo artist I've got to say I'm a like this. One person's pain is another person's pick LOL 2y

Hello littens I am back from my vacation amd I am still not in the mood for work, but you gotta do what you gotta do 🤐 and since I didn't use the internet that much I am going to stalk you all today or tomorrow... or when I get the time to do that. 🙁

I didn't read much but the last days I decided to hear an audiobook that was requested to me.

I still don't get into the audio vibes... maybe I'll never will... I love to read not to hear a book.

Happy Friday to you all!

My reading material in these days.

I am on page 63 and for now it is not as promising as I thought it would be. I like Keyes and her writing that's why I chose this book in the first place, but for now it is meh.

We'll see what happens next.

I am not reading as much as I want to because I am planning my vacation for the next 2 weeks. I hope to read more while I am gone but there is no pressure. First and foremost I will enjoy my vacation.

2. I love everything about the Greek mythology.
3. One good book with enough depths.
4. Nether... I like to have them in my mind for as long as I please.
5. Oh tricky! 🤔 My pick is adult fiction...

While I was waiting for the tram I saw this humongos corner today... books on books on books... As usual I asked myself why the hell did I not see this before.

The answer is pretty quick.... because everytime while I wait for the tram I read a book...

This taught me to check my surroundings... bacause you'll never know what you find.

I went to the library yesterday and was so happy to found these. I couldn't believe that they are available... so I picked them to stay with me for a short while... and guess what...

I didn't know that these were a trilogy... and guess again....

I forgot to take the first book of the trilogy... and take another guess....

The first book is not available till August.

🙈

I guess I am a really lucky person.

Before the last day of may is over I wanna count my precious blessings 😉

So far I read 9 books and began with the 10th, but I think it will not be finished in these little hours.

Another blessing is that I found this gorgeous App. With litsy I just wanted to keep track of my reading habit and found inspiration and all of you littens, who inspire me. I never read so many books in one month before.

Thank you all for being an inspiration.

Sarah83 Das kenne ich irgendwoher, auch wenn ich noch keine zehn Bücher im Monat geschafft habe. 😑 benutzt du auch Goodreads? 3y
Yanes @Sarah83 Goodreads... hab davon gehört. Ehrlich gesagt weiß ich nicht genau was es ist und was man damit macht. 3y
Sarah83 ist eine Internetseite auf der du deine Bücher listen kannst, die du gelesen hast oder lesen willst. Soll ich dir mal einen Post hier basteln, dass du es dir ansehen kannst? Kannst damit nachhalten, welches Buch du gelesen hast, es bewerten und es werden dir ähnliche Bücher vorgeschlagen, die du lesen könntest. 😉 3y

Sarah83 @Yanes mache ich dir morgen fertig. Die app nutze ich allerdings nicht. Hatte mich vorher mal eingelesen und die die App nutzen, sagen dass sie öfter abstürzt und du das mit dem Internet nicht synchronisieren kannst. Ich geh immer mit dem Handy über meinen Browser rein. Klappt so auch ganz gut. 😉 3y
Yanes @Sarah83 Danke 😊 für den Tipp und den Hinweis. Dann lade ich mir die App am besten nicht runter und warte auf deinen Post. 3y
Sarah83 Wie gesagt, musst du auch selbst wissen, aber ich mag den Salat nicht. 😉 Hast du auch schon ne App um deine Bücher zu katalogisieren? 3y
Yanes @Sarah83 Ich hatte mal vor Jahren eine App zum katalogisieren... die war zwar ein bissel umständlich aber hat funktioniert. Doch nach einem Update war alles für die Katz... und ich war zu faul mich nochmal dranzusetzten alles Buch für Buch einzugeben. Hast du evtl. ne Empfehlung für mich? 3y

A book about a family who destroy themselves.
Although it was a thriller I was not really thrilled. I couldn't connect with the main characters... I somehow missed something which I couldn't put a finger on it. Don't get me wrong the book is brilliantly written and the story is easy to follow... but I missed the special umpf. Overall I liked it but I didn't loved it.

I rate it with 3 out of 5 Stars and recommend it for in between gaps.

WoW!!! My first Sandra Brown book and definitely not my last. This book took me by surprise and I couldn't stop reading! The story about the heroine is so well written and tragic. Her path of revenge is really stunning and fascinating... I enjoyed reading and feeling with her.

I think we need more strong characters like her. A woman that knows how to handle problems.

I've read these books the last week... they reminded me very much of the Thorne of Glass series.

There is a young almost adult girl who discovers that she is a jinn. She has some serious powers that she uses to save her world. And as usual since every young adult book nowadays there are 2 love interests for this young almost woman.

These covers are so bad! What counts is on the inside.

You may skip the last book...

Mostly 3 out of 5 stars.
