Der erste Blick, der letzte Kuss und alles dazwischen // Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between!!!

Der erste Blick, der letzte Kuss und alles dazwischen - Jennifer E. Smith

german and english review

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

Ich muss unbedingt anfangen mehr Bücher der Autorin zu lesen, denn was ich hier gelesen habe, hat mir unheimlich gut gefallen.

 

Inhalt: Ab morgen wird Clare an der Ostküste studieren und Aidan auf ein College in Kalifornien gehen. Clare ist skeptisch, ob ihre Beziehung trotz der Entfernung zwischen ihnen bestehen kann. Dennoch lässt sie sich darauf ein, gemeinsam mit Aidan all die Orte aufzusuchen, die für ihre Liebe eine Rolle gespielt haben. Können zwölf Stunden Clares Entschluss beeinflussen? Im Morgengrauen ist der Moment der Wahrheit gekommen: Ist es eine Trennung auf Zeit oder ein Abschied für immer?

Fangen wir mit den Charakteren an. Ich liebe Clare und Aiden, getrennt von einander und auch zusammen. Sie sind manchmal Beide unheimlich frustrierend aber wer ist das schließlich nicht. Ich mochte sie Beide jedenfalls von Anfang an und sie sind mir im Laufe der Geschichte immer mehr ans Herz gewachsen.
Ich mochte auch die Nebencharaktere richtig gerne. Wir hatten Riley, Aidens Schwester. Wir hatten außerdem Clares beste Freundin Stella und Aidens besten Freund Scotty. Ich mochte die Beiden wirklich richtig gerne, genau wie Clare und Aiden, waren sie manchmal ein bisschen frustrierend aber sie waren trotzallem wirklich klasse (so als Randnotiz, ich würde gerne ein Buch über die Beiden lesen.)

 

Was ich auch total mochte, waren die Familiendynamiken in dem Buch. Die super Beziehung zwischen Clare und ihren Eltern, im krassen Gegenteil zu Aiden und seinen Eltern (hier mochte ich die Entwicklung im Laufe des Buches aber wirklich sehr).

 

Alles im Allen, ja die Bewertung ist kurz, weil ich nichts verraten will, mochte ich den Schreibstil richtig gerne und mochte auch die Geschichte an sich, genauso wie jeden einzelnen Charakter in dem Buch. Ich werde es auf jeden fall nochmal lesen.

 

***

 

I really have to read more books from the author, cause I truly enjoyed what I have seen of her writing in this book.

 

Summary: On the night before they leave for college, Clare and Aidan only have one thing left to do: figure out whether they should stay together or break up. Over the course of twelve hours, they retrace the steps of their relationship, trying to find something in their past that might help them decide what their future should be. The night leads them to family and friends, familiar landmarks and unexpected places, hard truths and surprising revelations. But as the clock winds down and morning approaches, so does their inevitable goodbye. The question is, will it be goodbye for now or goodbye forever?

 

Lets start with the characters. I love Clare and Aiden, separate from each other and together. They are both really frustrating from time to time but who isn't. I really liked them both right from the start and they grew more and more on me throughout this whole story.
I also really liked the side characters. We had Riley, Aiden's sister. We also had Clare's best friend Stella and Aiden's best friend Scotty. I loved these two a lot, they were also frustrating a few times but they were just amazing (sidenote, I would totally read a book about these two.)

 

I also loved the family dynamics in this book. The great relationship Clare had with her parents, and then the complete opposite with Aiden and his parents (I loved how this developed throughout the book, though.)

 

Overall, yes, I'm already done with the review cause I don't want to give anything away, I truly loved the writing and just really enjoyed the story and loved every single one of the characters. I will totally read this again.

 

Reading progress update: I've read 50 out of 736 pages.

Die Frauen vom Löwenhof - Agnetas Erbe: Roman (Die Löwenhof-Saga, Band 1) - Corina Bomann

Ooooh, ich glaube das wird richtig gut. Ich mag ja Agneta schon mal gleich als Hauptcharakter und ich mag die Story jetzt schon richtig sehr. Auch wenn es mich mächtig aufregt, wie schrecklich die Welt im Jahr 1913 für Frauen war.

Favorite book(s) of the month: Spies, Lies, And Allies

 

Books started this month but haven't finished yet: If I Tell You (reading something on my laptop takes me far too long), Das fünfte Zeichen, Shopaholic (finished in the meantime)

 

This month sucked, in more ways than one. I didn't get much reading done and what I read didn't do anything for me. Except "Spies, Lies, And Allies", it's my absolut favorite book I finished reading this month and pretty much saved April for me.

Reading progress update: I've read 13%.

I'm really really loving this so far.

Die Schnäppchenjägerin // Confessions of a Shopaholic!!!

Shopaholic - Maria Koschny, Sophie Kinsella

german and english review

actual rating: 2.5 stars

 

Das war mein zweiter Versuch mit dem Buch. Diesmal habe ich es mir als Hörbuch angehört, was Gott sei Dank eine verkürzte Version war. Ich mochte die Sprecherin unheimlich gerne, was ein weiterer Vorteil war. Ansonsten, das Buch ist einfach absolut nichts für mich.

 

Inhalt: Rebecca Bloomwood hat eine gefährliche Leidenschaft: Die erfolgreiche Finanzexpertin, die anderen Menschen in Geldfragen kompetent zur Seite steht, kann keinem Schnäppchen widerstehen. Nun steckt sie in einer schweren finanziellen Krise und droht in ihrem selbst geschaffenen Chaos unterzugehen, da sie sich gleichzeitig die Bank vom Leib halten, den attraktiven Luke Brandon beeindrucken und ihrer täglichen Arbeit nachgehen muss...

 

Rebecca hat eindeutig ihre Momente, in denen ich denke, dass sie endlich zur Vernunft kommt, doch dann macht sie es gleich wieder kaputt und geht mir einfach nur auf die Nerven. Ich dachte zum Ende hin, dass es echt besser mit ihr wird, dass sie wirklich was ändert und vernünftiger wird, aber so richtig überzeugt war ich dann doch nicht. Ich weiß nicht wie sich das im Verlaufe der Reihe entwickelt, es gibt ja noch genug weitere Bücher. Aber ich glaube nicht, dass ich mir ein weiteres davon antun werde.

 

Ich muss ehrlich gestehen, dass ich mir da lieber den Film wieder und wieder angucken werde, statt das Buch zu lesen und das sage ich wirklich sehr sehr selten.

 

***

 

This is my second try with this book. This time I listened to it as an audiobook, thankfully it was a shortened version. I also really liked the girl who read it, which is always a plus. Other than that, I came to the conclusion that this book just isn't for me.

 

Summary: Becky Bloomwood has a fabulous flat in London’s trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season’s must-haves. The only trouble is, she can’t actually afford it—not any of it. Her job writing at Successful Saving magazine not only bores her to tears, it doesn’t pay much at all. And lately Becky’s been chased by dismal letters from the bank—letters with large red sums she can’t bear to read. She tries cutting back. But none of her efforts succeeds. Her only consolation is to buy herself something . . . just a little something.

Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life—and the lives of those around her—forever.

 

Rebecca has her moments when I think she finally comes to her senses but a minute later she's already over it and back to getting on my nerves. Towards the end, I really thought she would change some and would maybe, just maybe, be a bit more reasonable but I'm really not very convinced. I don't know how this will develope throughout the series, there are so many more books to the series but I'm sure as hell not gonna go back there ever again.

 

 

To be completely honest, I'd rather watch the movie over and over again, since I loved that one much more than this, something that I rarely ever say.

Die Bibliothek der besonderen Kinder // Library of Souls

Die Bibliothek der besonderen Kinder: Roman (Die besonderen Kinder) - Ransom Riggs, Silvia Kinkel

german and english review

 

Ich bin so froh, dass ich mit der Trilogie jetzt durch bin. Für mich persönlich wurden die Bücher immer schlechter. Ich liebe das erste Buch immer noch, beim zweiten Buch hatte ich schon mehr Probleme und jetzt mit dem dritten, muss ich wieder einen weiteren Stern in der Bewertung runtergehen. Ich glaube die Trilogie ist einfach nichts für mich. 

 

Ich versuche die ganze Bewertung so Spoiler-frei wie möglich zu halten, da es der dritte und letzte Band in der Reihe ist. Was ich an den Büchern mag, ist die Spannung und Action, es passiert ja wirklich viel in kürzester Zeit.
Ich mag das immer wieder Möglichkeiten genutzt werden um neue Besondere zu treffen und kennenzulernen.
Ich mag den Zusammenhalt der Gruppe von besonderen Kindern, besonders von Miss Peregrines Gruppe.

Ich mag den Schreibstil unheimlich gerne und die Bilder. Ich denke das die Bilder einfach ein wichtiger Teil dieser Reihe sind.

 

Was ich an diesem Buch nicht mochte (oder auch in den Bänden vorher.)
Die unheimlich langen Kapitel. Ich mag meine Kapitel kurz und knackig, so bald sie zu lange sind, habe ich unheimlich große Probleme durch ein Buch zu kommen. Ich weiß nicht wieso aber es stört mich unheimlich.
Jacob und Emma gehören zusammen und auch getrennt voneinander, nicht unbedingt zu meinen Lieblingscharakteren, deswegen war die erste Hälfte des Buches wirklich unheimlich schwer für mich. Ich habe mich mehr auf Addison konzentriert als auf irgendjemand anderen, weil er in der Zeit wirklich zu meinem Lieblingscharakter geworden ist. So richtig interessant wurde es für mich erst, als endlich wieder alle vereint waren.

Alles in Allem, ich bin froh, dass ich die Trilogie gelesen habe, ich bereuhe es auf keinen Fall, allerdings würde ich sie gerne mehr mögen als ich es letzendlich tue.

 

***

 

I'm just glad that I'm done with this trilogy now. For me personally these books got worse with each book. I truly love the first book, I had quite a few problems with the second one and now with the third one, I had to go down another star in the raiting again. I just think that the trilogy isn't for me.

 

I'm going to try to keep this review as spoiler-free as I can, cause it's the third and final book in this series. What I love about these books are the action, there is so much happening in a short span of time.
I like that every opportunity gets used to meet and get to know new Peculiars. (Is that even a word?)
I also truly love how tight the group of peculiar children is, especially Miss Peregrine's group. Family feels.
I really like the writing style and the pictures. I think that the pictures are such an important part of this series.

 

What I didn't like about the book (or the series in general.)
The freaking long chapters. I like my chapters to be short and sweet, as soon as they get too long I have so many problems getting through a book. I don't know why but it's really frustrating.
Jacob and Emma, together or apart from each other, aren't exactly my favortie people by now. That's why I had the hardest time with the first half of the book. I mainly focused on Addison, cause he really turned into one of my favorite character during that time. I got way more into the book, as soon as they were reunited with the rest.

 

Overall, I'm glad I read this trilogy, I don't regret it at all, but at the end of the day I wish I  would've liked it way more than I actually did.

Spies, Lies, and Allies!!!

Spies, Lies, and Allies - Lisa Brown Roberts

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

This book comes out May 4th, and you should totally check it out!!!

 

 

Summary: Summers are supposed to be fun, right? Not mine. I’ve got a job at my dad’s company, which is sponsoring a college scholarship competition. I just found out that, in addition to my job assisting the competing interns, I’m supposed to vote for the winner. Totally not what I signed up for.

There’s a crazy guy running the competition like it’s an episode of Survivor. Then there’s Carlos, who is, well, very distracting –– in a good way. But I can’t even think about him that way because Crazy Guy says any fraternizing on the job means instant disqualification for the intern involved.

As if that’s not enough, an anonymous weirdo with insider intel is trying to sabotage my dad’s company on social media…and I’m afraid it’s working.

Much as I’d love to quit, I can’t. Kristoffs Never Quit is our family motto. I just hope there’s more than one survivor by the end of this summer.

 

**

 

There is a reason why Lisa Brown Roberts is slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite YA authors. Her stories are just amazing, the settings are great and her characters always become my favorites.

 

So let's talk about the setting. I loved it. I loved the whole internship/scholarship scenario. Cause it brought together so many great characters, that probably never would have become friends, if it wasn't for that special circumstance and the bond they now share while going through all the ups and downs of their internship.

 

Which brings me right to the characters. I loved them. I loved every single one of them. Firstly, Laurel, the main characters. (Fun fact, give me a Laurel in any book, tv show or movie, and I will probably love her.) I loved her right from the start. She's a fangirl just like me. To the pain of the people around me, I always find a tv show or movie reference to every situation in life. Sorry, not sorry.
I loved the other interns as well. I loved Trish, she was everything I want to be. I loved Ashley. And the dudes, Elijah, Carlos and Jason. Jason just was that hurt little puppy that I wanted to protect at all costs.

 

There were also some great relationships. I loved Laurel and her parents, especially her dad, since we got more of that relationship. I loved their car rides and how Laurel came around and saw that her father and his company aren't anything evil.
Right from the beginning of the book, the first time the interns met, I wanted nothing more from this book, than lots of amazing friendships. Especially Laurel and Trish. Both had so many prejudices towards each other, that's why I wanted them to get over that and become the great friends, that I knew they could be. I especially loved moments when the whole group was together, the fussball tournament, the time when they all got locked into the basement. I loved these moments, thats when they really came together and started to really get to know each other and became a great time and good friends. I'm always here for that.
And of course the lovestory of Laurel and Carlos. It's something that we all knew would happen but I still enjoyed it a lot. They had some really great chemistry. Sometimes they were frustrating, especially Carlos, when he got jealous of Jason and was just a jerk. I also loved meeting Carlos' family, they were such a fun bunch.

 

Overall, I truly loved this book and can totally see myself reading this one a few more times. On a side note, I also really wanna read the book Laurel was reading in the story, I wanna get to know Qa'hr myself.

This month was amazing!!!!

I feel so proud of myself, not only did I read a lot but I also enjoyed all of these books. Not all of them will stick with me forever but they were still great. I'm also happy to say that so far I'm doing really good with my mission to catch up/or finish series/trilogies this year.

Mind Platter!!!

Mind Platter - Najwa Zebian

DNF!!!

Assassin of Truths!!!

Assassin of Truths - Brenda Drake

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

This is the last book in the Library Jumpers Trilogy.

 

I finished another series/trilogy. This is my mission this year, finishing series or at least catching up on series that are still not finished. So far I'm doing pretty good. Yay me!

 

Summary (cause it's not that spoilery): The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers.

And it’s not your normal bump-in-the- night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. The kind that include an evil wizard hell-bent on taking her down.

Gia can end his devious plan, but only if she recovers seven keys hidden throughout the world’s most beautiful libraries. And then figures out exactly what to do with them.

The last thing she needs is a distraction in the form of falling in love. But when an impossible evil is unleashed, love might be the only thing left to help Gia save the world.

 

I was back in the world right from the beginning, I especially loved that we got a few reminders of what happened before. It was enough to jog my memory but not too much that it got repetetive (look at me using new words). I also loved that we gt right back into action, that's what I love about these books, they are just so action filled.

 

I just love these characters in this story. Gia is an amazing character, the author doesn't go the route of making her a strong character by never having her cry, WHICH I LOVE. You can be strong and still show emotions. There was also some mystery about Gia and her globes, that I won't go in detail about but that I totally loved. Emily was also back, while I strongly disliked her in the second book until we figured some stuff out, I loved her in this final book. She was amazing. Like always I enjoyed every moment that had Nana, Pop and Afton in it. But also the other sentinels like Lei (my favorite ducky), Jaran (his friendship with Gia will always be my absolute favorite!), and Demos.

 

I still couldn't care less about Nick (I mean I feel for him, but I wasn't a big fan of him before everything went down, so) or Bastien. I'm sorry, I just can't. This is also why I read everything relating to Gia and Bastien very loosely. I can't. And Arik, ARIK. Good god, how I miss that dude from book one. Book two was a mess when it came to him. The beginning of this book, I couldn't deal with him and was very glad to see things change around the middle towards the end. I love Arik with all my heart, but damn, it's been a rough time.

 

Another part that I truly enjoyed in this book, was seeing the fairy realm, seeing all the other havens and covens. I just love all the world building, it was beautiful and just so very well done.

 

Overall, I truly enjoyed this trilogy. Not everything went how I wanted it to go but I can live with that, I still liked it alot.

Ein Moment fürs Leben // The Time of My Life!!!

Ein Moment fürs Leben [Audiobook] - Cecelia Ahern, Luise Helm, Christine Strüh

german and english review

 

 

Das Buch ist einfach eins meiner absoluten Cecelia Ahern Bücher, ich könnte es wieder und wieder lesen und bin immer noch total begeistert, wie wunderschön es geschrieben ist, wie unglaublich toll die Geschichte ist und wie sehr ich jeden einzelnen der Charaktere liebe (außer Blake, geh nach Hause!)

 

Inhalt: Du hast eine Verabredung – mit deinem Leben

Eigentlich wundert sich Lucy Silchester über gar nichts mehr: dass ihre große Liebe sie verlassen hat, dass sie aus ihrem Job geflogen ist oder dass sie eine Einladung zu einem Treffen bekommt – von ihrem eigenen Leben! Aber als sie tatsächlich zu dem Termin geht und es direkt vor ihr steht, ist Lucy dann doch überrascht: So hat sie sich ihr Leben wirklich nicht vorgestellt!

 

Ich liebe Lucy als Hauptcharakter. Sie ist eine absolute Katastrophe, aber ich liebe sie, sie ist großartig. Sie hat ein eigenartiges Verhältnis zur Wahrheit, aber sie ist unheimlich liebenswert und ihre Art von Humor ist total mein Ding. Ich liebe vor allem die Entwicklung, die sie durch macht. Wie sie anfängt sich um sich selbst zu kümmern, nach dem sie vor Augen geführt kriegt, wie mickrig ihr Leben eigentlich ist. Wie sie sich um die Beziehungen in ihrem Leben kümmert.

 

Da komme ich auch schon gleich zu dem nächsten Punkt, ich liebe die verschiedenen Beziehungen in dem Buch. Familiäre Beziehungen, ich liebe es wie sich die Beziehung zwischen Lucy und ihrer Mutter zum Ende des Buches total verändert. Mit ihrem Vater werde ich wohl nie warm und Lucy wahrscheinlich auch nicht. Ich mag außerdem die kleine Freundschaft zwischen Lucy und ihrer Nachbarin Claire (ihre Geschichte berührt mich jedes Mal wieder). Und dann natürlich Lucy und Don. Ich liebe Don. Don ist großartig, vom ersten Moment an, bis zum Schluss. Und er ist einfach so viel besser als Blake, deswegen bricht es mir immer in der Mitte des Buches das Herz, wenn Lucy denkt, sie müsste wieder mit Blake zusammen kommen. Ugh, nein danke. Und dann natürlich die wichtigste Beziehung in dem ganzen Buch, Lucy und ihr Leben. Wie sie ihn am Anfang einfach ignoriert, sie dann Freunde werden und er sich am Ende wieder verabschieden muss, weil sein Job fürs erste getan ist. (Was mich übrigens an eine erwachsene Version von Nanny McPhee erinnert). Je besser sich Lucy in ihrem Leben schlägt, je mehr Dinge sie ins positive verändert, um so besser geht es ihrem Leben.

 

Ich liebe das Buch einfach. Es diesmal als Hörbuch zu lesen, war ebenfalls ein schönes Erlebnis.

 

***

 

This book will always be one of my absolute favorite Cecelia Ahern books,I could read it over and over again and still be amazed how beautiful it is written, how amazing the story is and how much I love every one of the characters (except Blake, go home!)

 

Summary: Lucy Silchester has an appointment with her life – and she’s going to have to keep it.

Lying on Lucy Silchester’s carpet one day when she returns from work is a gold envelope. Inside is an invitation – to a meeting with Life. Her life. It turns out she's been ignoring it and it needs to meet with her face to face.

It sounds peculiar, but Lucy’s read about this in a magazine. Anyway, she can’t make the date: she’s much too busy despising her job, skipping out on her friends and avoiding her family.

But Lucy’s life isn’t what it seems. Some of the choices she’s made – and stories she’s told – aren’t what they seem either. From the moment she meets the man who introduces himself as her life, her stubborn half-truths are going to be revealed in all their glory – unless Lucy learns to tell the truth about what really matters to her.

 

I love Lucy as a maincharacter. She is a total mess but I love her, she is amazing. She has a very loose relationship with the truth but she is just so damn lovable and her sense of humor is right up my alley. I especially love the journey she takes through this book. How she starts taking of herself, after she sees right in front of her eyes how pathetic her life looks. How she starts to work on the relationships in her life.

 

Which brings me right to the next point, I LOVE all the different relationships in this book. Family relationships, I just love how Lucy's relationship to her mother changes towards the end of the book. I will never be comfortable with her father, so will Lucy probably. I also love that little friendship between Lucy and her neighbour Claire (her story just touches me every time). And of course, we have Lucy and Don. I love Don. He is just the greatest from the beginning until the very end. That's why it hurts so much in the middle of the book, when Lucy thinks that she should actually get back together with Blake. Ugh, no thanks. And last but not least, the most important relationship in the book, Lucy and her life. How she avoided him in the beginning, how they became friends and how he had to say goodbye, cause his job was done for now. (Something that totally reminds me of a grown up version of Nanny McPhee). The better Lucy takes care of her life, the more things she changes for the better, the better he feels and looks.

 

I just love this book. Listening to the audio book this time around, was also a great experience.

 

Phantastische Tierwesen und wo sie zu finden sind (Original Drehbuch) // Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Original Screenplay)!!!

Phantastische Tierwesen und wo sie zu finden sind: Das Originaldrehbuch - J.K. Rowling, Anja Hansen-Schmidt

german and english review

 

 

Inhalt: Der Magizoologe Newt Scamander will in New York nur einen kurzen Zwischenstopp einlegen. Doch als sein magischer Koffer verloren geht und ein Teil seiner phantastischen Tierwesen entkommt, steckt Newt in der Klemme – und nicht nur er.

 

Ich wollte ja immer mit dem Buch warten bis ich endlich die Harry Potter Serie komplett gelesen habe aaaaber, ich wollte einfach nicht mehr warten.

 

Den Film habe ich vorher schon gesehen, deswegen war jetzt nichts in dem Buch wirklich neu für mich, trotzdem war es unglaublich schön es zu lesen, hat unheimlich Spaß gemacht und war wirklich wunderschön und magisch.

 

Ich liebe diese Welt einfach. Ich liebe die Charaktere. Newt, Tina, Jacob, und Queenie. Vor allem Queenie, ich liebe Queenie. Ich liebe jeden Moment zwischen Jacob und Queenie. AHHHH!!!! Ich liebe Jacob und wie er die Zauberwelt kennenlernt und alles zum Ende hin ist einfach so bittersüß.

 

Und dann natürlich Newts Koffer und dessen Innenleben, einfach so wunderschön magisch, die Welt darin, wie jedes der Tierwesen seinen eigenen Lebensraum hat.

 

Hab ich schon erwähnt, dass ich das Buch einfach nur magisch schön fand?!

 

***

 

Summary: When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt's fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…

 

I always wanted to read this book as soon as I finished reading the complete Harry Potter series buuuuut, I was tired of waiting.

 

I watched the movie way back when, so nothing in this book was really new to me, STILL, it was amazing to read it, it was fun, it was just beautiful and magical.

 

I love this world. I adore and love these characters. Newt, Tina, Jacob, and Queenie. Especially Queenie, I LOVE Queenie. I love the moment between Jacob and Queenie. AAAAAH!!!!! I love Jacob and how he discovers the magical world and everything towards the end of the book was just so damn bittersweet.

 

And of course Newts suitcase and what's in it, so beautiful, so magicals, that world inside where everyone of the beasts has it's own living space.

 

Did I mention that I think that whole book is just magically beautiful?!

 

She Felt Like Feeling Nothing!!!

She Felt Like Feeling Nothing - R.H. Sin

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

I read the first few pages and went straight to amazon to put the actual paperback on my wishlist, cause I need this at home.

 

I'm not saying it's the best and most original stuff I ever read, but I loved it and it made me feel a lot of things. I can't wait to re-read this over and over again.

The Tailor!!!

The Tailor - Leigh Bardugo

This is a super short story from the Grisha series. This is just a little scene from Genya's point of you. And I loved it. With 18 pages this was such a fast read but I still enjoyed it alot, mainly because Genya is my everything and I love her with all my heart. That's it, that's the review LOL
