Shadow of a Girl!!!

Shadow of a Girl -  Shannon Greenland

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

I hate that this book was on my kindle app for so long and I didn't get to read this earlier, cause this book is just so freaking amazing. Damn, I did not expect that at all.

 

Summary: Use cash and keep moving.

After I ran away from home, these were the two rules that dictated my life. Scoring a job as a roadie fit perfectly for what I needed. Traveling, cash, and life out of the spotlight. But when my path collides with West, the lead singer of Bus Stop, I can’t seem to stay out of his spotlight—especially since we’ll be touring together for an entire year.

West is determined to break down my walls. He won’t give up. And little by little they come crumbling. But if he knew what lurked behind them, he wouldn’t be so eager to get rid of them.

The more time we spend together, the more the lines of our friendship become blurred. He makes me dream of things I never thought possible. But while our friendship has been evolving into a romance, my secrets have been closing in. And just when I’ve decided to reveal my past to West, I’m confronted by it. The cost of my freedom could ruin the life of the guy I love...

 

Eve. Eve is the main character of the story and she owns my heart. She is that type of character that I just want to hug really close and keep her save from the world. That girl, no matter how many times she tells herself that she is a coward, is one hell of a storng human being. She goes through things no one should go through. And she tries her hardest to get away from things and start over.
I loved every character in the book, well expect Gideon. Let's not talk about that guy. He is just the worst.

 

I love Eve's relationships with the other characters in the book. Her friendship with Bluma is just the greatest, it just takes a special kind of friend to help you out the way Bluma did. I loved her friendship with Anne (I also loved Anne as a character A LOT. Seriously, she's everything). I also loved the relationship between Eve and West. I loved the pace of their relationship. It didn't feel rushed, it was really nice and ah, JUST LOVE THEM. I also loved West's family, how welcoming they were to Eve.

 

I don't want to say much about the plot, I don't want to give to much away, cause I went into the story not knowing what the heck I was getting into. And this just ended up blowing my mind. It's dark but it's also beautiful. It'smaking you feel all the emotions and tugging on all the heartstrings. I really recommend it.

 

Reading progress update: I've read 70%.

Eve is just that kind of character that I wanna wrap up in a blanket and keep her safe from the cruel world outside.

All the strangest things are true // Wink Poppy Midnight!!!

All the strangest things are true. - April Genevieve Tucholke, Anne Brauner

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

German and english review

 

 

Ich bin mir immer noch nicht sicher, was ich über das Buch und die Geschichte denke. Oder über die Charaktere. Aber erst mal zum...

 

Inhalt: Wink: ein bisschen seltsam, zurückhaltend, mit wildem rotem Haar und einer ausufernden Fantasie. Poppy, das schöne Biest, das alle manipuliert, aber den nicht bekommt, den sie eigentlich haben will. Midnight, ein unsicherer Junge, hin- und hergerissen zwischen beiden. Sie alle erzählen ihre Geschichte. Eine Geschichte, in der die verrücktesten Dinge wahr sind. Was ist wirklich passiert? Jemand weiß es. Jemand lügt. Wem kannst du trauen?

 

Anfangs war ich total begeistert, die Charaktere waren alle drei ziemlich spannend. Wink hat sich von Anfang an in mein Herz geschlichen.Doch im Laufe des Buches, je weiter wir in die Geschichte kamen um so weniger wusste ich was ich von den einzelnen Charakteren halten soll. Was wahrscheinlich auch so gewollt war, schließlich soll in dem Buch keiner so sein, wie es auf dem ersten Blick scheint.

 

Was mir von Anfang bis Ende wirklich gefallen hat war die Art wie die Geschichte geschrieben wurde. Der Schreibstil war wirklich anders aber wirklich unheimlich schön. Fast schon poetisch. Und das hat am Ende auch das Buch für mich ausgemacht. Nicht die Charaktere, nicht die Story an sich, sondern wie alles geschrieben war.

 

***

 

I'm still not sure how I think about the book and the story. Or the characters. But first...

 

Summary: Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

What really happened?
Someone knows.
Someone is lying.

 

In the beginning I was totally excited, all the three characters were really intriguing. Wink stole my heart in the very first pages. But the more I got into the book, the more I got into the story, the less I knew what to think of the characters. That was probably the intent, since the book is about people not actually being the way they seem to be.

 

What I loved from the beginning until the very end, was the way the story was written. The writing is just so different and so beautiful. Almost poetic. And that was what made the book for me in the end. Not the characters, not the story itself, but how everything was written.

 

The Best We Could Do!!!

The Best We Could Do - Thi Bui

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

HOLY MOTHER OF EVERYTHING.

This graphic novel/comic, whatever you wanna call it, is everything. Seriously.

 

Summary: This beautifully illustrated and emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.
 
At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent—the endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.

 

The artwork was stunning. Seriously, the ARTWORK.

The writing was so engaging. The story itself. From the first page on until the very end, I just felt all the feelings that a person can have. I never had that with a graphic novel, but this one really went very deep and was just so real.

 

I highly recommend this story to everyone. No matter if you like graphic novels or not, no matter if you like non fiction or not. This book, this story is such an important one. And it's such an emotional ride. READ IT.

Rise of the Chosen!!!

Rise of the Chosen - Anna Kopp

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

This is the first book in a series(?), it didn't totally wow me but it got me interested and I take that as a win. I also loved that we got all the explanation out of the way before the actual story started. The book has a prologue that explains the different terms and how the world works. So no information drop while you are trying to get into the story.

 

Summary: In Sam's world there are two rules. Rule #1: Nobody dies. Protect the living at all costs. Rule #2: Everybody dies. At least once.

The Waking was a global event in which a force called the Lifeblood invaded all humans who died. The few strong enough to control it came back as powerful immortals. The rest letthe bloodlust take over and awoke with one goal - to kill.

Newly appointed Watch Guard Samantha Shields has a legacy to uphold. Her father died a hero defending their city and now she wants to follow in his footsteps. Except for the dying part, of course. Unfortunately, fate has other plans as she discovers deep dark secrets that make her choose between her loyalties and the lives of everyone in her city. Both rules are in play as Sam is forced to make hard decisions that could cost her everything – including the person she cares about most.

 

I really loved the main character Sam. It didn't take me long before I was really interested in her and wanted all the good things for her. Yay, for very likable main characters. Of course things go as expected, tragic backstory, tragic things happening in the present and she kinda skips a few steps in her career that lands her in the middle of a revolution. Also she's a special kind of undead. Of course it's predictable, but I still enjoyed that a lot.

 

What I enjoyed even more is the fact that Sam's love interest, Lena, is a girl. Would you look at that? I loved these two, a lot. And I loved that they shared wonderful moments and I loved it even more, that Lena survived the first book. I don't wanna repeat myself but WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT?

So far I don't see a love triangle happening, or maybe that's just wishful thinking, but we'll see.

 

I really liked the writing. And the characters and the story intrigue me enough to keep going, so I actually can't wait til the next book comes out.

Entsetzen // Fractured!!!

Entsetzen  - Karin Slaughter

German and english review

 

Inhalt: Eine falsche Tote – ein wahr gewordener Albtraum

Sie glaubt, den Mörder ihrer Tochter vor sich zu haben. Stürzt sich auf ihn und tötet ihn in einem erbitterten Kampf. Nur – das Opfer ist gar nicht ihre Tochter. Emma lebt, doch sie wurde entführt. Special Agent Will Trent weiß: Die Chance, das Mädchen lebend zu finden, wird von Stunde zu Stunde geringer. Doch noch entsetzlicher ist die Vorstellung, dass der sadistische Täter ungeschoren davonkommen könnte …

 

Mein Gott, das war wieder ein Leseerlebnis. Gleich von der ersten Seite an, hat es mich gleich gepackt und so blieb es bis zum Schluss. Bis zur letzten Seite, war ich wirklich voll in der Geschichte drinne. Die Spannung hat sich wunderbar bis zum Schluss gehalten und obwohl es mit über 500 Seiten nicht wirklich kurz war, hat sich nicht in einem Kapitel so etwas wie Langeweile eingestellt. Die Entwicklung des Falles verlief genau im richtigen Tempo.

 

Die Mischung aus Fall und Privatleben der Charaktere, war perfekt gewählt. Im ersten Buch war ich ja total vernarrt in Will und Angie. Ich muss sagen, dass das in diesem Buch ganz anders war. Angie war nicht oft da, aber ich war nicht wirklich begeistert als sie aufgetaucht ist. Komisch, so was hatte ich noch nie und kann es auch wirklich nicht erklären. Will hingegen, bleibt einfach mein absoluter Liebling. Ich mag ihn einfach so richtig sehr. Und wir bekamen Faith Mitchell neu dazu. FAITH MITCHELL. Ich mag sie einfach total gerne und bin froh, dass sie auch in weiteren Büchern auftauchen wird, jetzt wo sie Wills Partnerin ist, müsste das ja so sein. Ich mag auch die Entwicklung ihrer Beziehung zu einander richtig sehr. Ich mag die eigenartige Freundschaft, die sich im Laufe des Falles zwischen ihnen entwickelt hat, so sehr und freu mich auf mehr davon.

 

Ich bin noch nicht so verrückt nach der Serie, wie vorher nach der Grant County Serie, aber ich bin auf dem guten Weg dahin. Ich hab auch gleich das nächste Buch angefangen zu lesen.

Summary: When Atlanta housewife Abigail Campano comes home unexpectedly one afternoon, she walks into a nightmare. A broken window, a bloody footprint on the stairs and, most devastating of all, the horrifying sight of her teenage daughter lying dead on the landing, a man standing over her with a bloody knife. The struggle which follows changes Abigail's life forever.

When the local police make a misjudgement which not only threatens the investigation but places a young girl's life in danger, the case is handed over to Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Apprehension Team - paired with detective Faith Mitchell, a woman who resents him from their first meeting.

But in the relentless heat of a Georgia summer, Will and Faith realise that they must work together to find the brutal killer who has targeted one of Atlanta's wealthiest, most privileged communities - before it's too late...

 

Good god, what a ride. Right from the first page, I got really into the story and it stayed that way until the end. Til the last page, I was super invested in everything that was going on. The suspense was there until the very end and even though with over 500 pages, it isn't really a short book, there wasn't any part of the story that bored me. The pace of the case and the writing overall, was just perfect.

 

The mix between case work and the private life of the characters was perfect. In the first book I was head over heels for Will and Angie. In this book, I have to say that I didn't really feel it. Angie wasn't there that much but when she showed up I didn't get excited at all. This never happened before and I can't even explain it. Will, on the other hand, will always be my favorite. I just love this awkward turtle. And we got Faith, a new face. FAITH MITCHELL. I just love her and I'm so happy that she's going to be in the other books as well, I mean, she's Will's partner now, so she has to be. I love the developement of their relationship and how at the end of all this, they build this weird friendship. I can't wait to see more of that.

 

I'm not as crazy about the series yet, as I was back when I read the Grant County series, but I'm getting there. I already started the next book right away.

Everything Reminds You of Something Else

Everything Reminds You of Something Else - Elana Wolff

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

The book comes out April, 1st.

 

Would you look at that, I'm actually reviewing an ARC before the book comes out. Haven't had that in a while. I'm trying to fix that.

 

This book is full of beautiful poetry, which I really want to get into this year. So this is my second book, and I still have so much to learn about it, so I'm in no way an expert to poetry.

 

But I really liked the writing, all these poems were so beautiful written and reading them, I just had the greatest time and really enjoyed every single page.

 

I just didn't really connect with any of the poems. There wasn't one that really stuck with me, that I want to reread over and over again. That's making me a bit sad.

 

But still, I highly recommend this book, cause even though I didn't connect with the words, I'm sure lots of other people will. And have I mentioned how beautiful written these poems are?!

Books started this month but haven't finished yet: Everything Reminds You of Something Else, Entsetzen

 

I just need to stare at the amount of books I read this month. Granted, one of them I read all through january and finished on the first of february. Some of them are very short books or poetry. But damn, I finished 9 books this month. Even though there was a lot going on and a lot of running around from one appointment to the next.

Qualitiy wise, I only didn't really enjoy two of the books I read, the rest of them were really freaking great.

I'm trying to keep my hopes up, cause I don't think I will keep up with the reading pace I had in february. But man, if would be great if march were amazing like that.

Gone Wild!!!

Gone Wild - Jodi Lundgren

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

This is another book where I'm not really sure about the raiting. Is it a two star raiting. A three star raiting. Two and a half star. I don't know. I really don't.

 

Summary: Bullied in foster care and then by his adoptive mother's boyfriend, Seth decides to head out on his own. Brooke thinks she might be pregnant, and instead of facing her controlling mother, she runs. The strangers meet in a wilderness park on Vancouver Island, where basic survival is a challenge. As they work together to find food, water, and shelter, they find the strength to take control of their own lives.

 

Let's talk about the things I liked. The writing. I really liked how fast and easy of a read that was. The book has under 200 pages, so for me this is more of a short story than an actual fleshed out novel.

 

And that's kinda where the flaws come in. I think when it came to the characters we just scratched the surface. I think we could have gone so much deeper, if the story would have been longer. I think that there was a little bit of character growth but not much, because it was just a few days we got to spend with the characters.

 

Both, Seth and Brooke where pretty likeable. Seth had a few more moments that annoyed the heck out of me. So I mainly focused on Brooke. I think that Brooke made more of an effort to better her situation, realizing that she can't always do the opposite of what her mother tells her, that she has to break up with her boyfriend and that she has to get more active with her job search.

 

I would have liked to get more closure. Was Brooke really pregnant? Did she loose the baby or was it just a false alarm? What happend? Is Seth living with his father now? Did he revisit the search for his real mother when he was the right age? WHAT HAPPENED?!

Der Schneeleopard // Die Again!!!

Der Schneeleopard - Tess Gerritsen, Andreas Jäger

German and english review

 

Gott sei Dank ist es nicht das letzte Buch in der Serie, denn ich brauch einfach mehr. Selbst wenn es nur bei einem Buch mehr bleiben sollte. Außerdem hoffe ich in dem letzten Buch auf einen richtigen Abschluss für die Charaktere.

 

Aber erstmal zu dem eigentlichen Buch. Ohne Spoiler über die eigentliche Geschichte, ich rede hauptsächlich über die Charaktere.

 

Inhalt: Der Schneeleopard beobachtet, er jagt – er tötet

Die Polizei von Boston ermittelt in einem bizarren Mordfall. Die Leiche eines Jägers und Tierpräparators wurde gefunden – ausgeweidet und aufgehängt wie eines seiner Beutetiere. In den Wäldern werden Knochenreste eines weiteren Opfers entdeckt. Doch Boston ist nicht das einzige Jagdrevier des Killers. Es scheint eine Verbindung zu einem fünf Jahre zurückliegenden Vorfall in Botswana zu geben, wo die Teilnehmer einer Safari auf ungeklärte Weise verschwanden. Jane Rizzoli reist nach Afrika, um dem heimtückischen Mörder auf die Spur zu kommen ..

 

Es war gleich von Anfang an super einfach, mich wieder in der Welt von Jane und Maura zurecht zufinden. Und ich fand das Buch auch wieder von der ersten Seite bis zur letzten total spannend gemacht. Ich liebe einfach Tess Gerritsen's Schreibstil, die Wendungen, die sie einbaut und die mich immer noch unerwartet treffen obwohl ich schon so viele Thriller gelesen habe und man denken könnte, ich würde langsam die Tricks verstehen.

 

Ich fand den Wechsel zwischen Boston und Botswana richtig interessant und auch abwechslungsreich.

Es war weniger von dem Privatleben der Charaktere zu sehen, worüber ich froh war, denn die Tatsache, dass Frank sich wieder zu Hause eingenistet hat, macht mich stinksauer und ich hoffe, dass Angela am Ende, doch auf ihr Herz hört anstatt zu tun, was sie denkt, was ihr Mann und ihre Söhne von ihr erwartet. Ugh.

Es war auch schön, dass Jane und Maura das ein oder andere Gespräch über ihre Freundschaft hatten und das sie sich da doch immer weiter annähern. Außerdem war Maura als Katzenmama, einfach zum Lachen komisch.

 

Und Millie. Millie, ja vielleicht hat sie sich versteckt und hat zurück gezogen gelebt aber verdammt, sie ist so ein starker Charakter. Ich habe so viel Respekt vor ihr.

 

***

 

Thank god, this isn't the last book in the series, cause I need more. Even if there is just only one more book. I just hope for more of a closure for the characters.

 

But lets talk about the actual book. Without spoilers about the actual story, I will mainly talk about the characters.

 

Summary: Boston Detective Jane Rizzoli is on the case of a big game hunter found dead in his apartment, alone with the body of a beautiful white snow leopard he had recently been commissioned to procure and stuff for a high-profile museum in the area.

Medical examiner Maura Isles connects the case to a number of seemingly unrelated deaths where the victims have all been found hanging upside down, the hallmark of a leopard's kill.

Rizzoli follows the puzzling trail of clues all the way to Botswana, where she uncovers the unsolved mystery of a deadly camping safari six years prior. When she realizes the two cases are connected, Rizzoli must track down the sole survivor of the tragic trip to discover who - or what - is behind these gruesome deaths.

 

Right from the beginning it was super easy getting back into the world of Jane and Maura. And from the first page to the last, the whole story was interesting and suspenseful. I just love Tess Gerritsen's writer style, the twists and turns she writes and that always catch me off guard, even though I read so many thrillers in my life and you would think I know all the tricks by now. I don't.

 

I loved the switch between Boston and Botswana, so interesting and it was a nice change of scenery.

There wasn't that much about the private life of the characters, which I was kinda glad about, cause the fact that Frank pretty much moved in with Angela again, makes me so freaking mad and I really hope that at the end of all this, Angela will follow her heart instead of doing what Frank and her sons tell her what she should do. Ugh.

I also liked the talks Jane and Maura had about their friendship and how they slowly start getting closer again. Maura as a cat lady was just hilarious.

 

And Millie. Millie, yes maybe she did hide herself and kinda vanished from the face of the earth, but damn, she's such a strong characters. I have so much respect for her.

Guardian of Secrets!!!

Guardian of Secrets  - Brenda Drake

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

I'm still not sure about the rating. I loved the first book, the second one frustrated me a lot and sometimes made me wanna skip chapters and parts of the story. But that was just about the relationship stuff. I don't know.

 

Let me start to talk about the things that I really enjoyed in the book.

The search for all the Chiavi and the places it took Gia and Nick. That's what I love about the story, that it isn't just based around libraries in the USA, but actually around the world and that we actually see them go these places. Loved it.

Also there is something about the fightin scenes in the books, that is just incredible. They are intense and so well described, love it.

 

Character- and relationshipwise. I loved how much the relationship between Gia and Deidre grew. In the beginning, Deidre kinda had to find herself for a bit and not just be a copy of Gia and then they could finally build their friendship and actually acted like sisters towards each other. LOVED IT. I was also happy to see characters like Nana and Afton show up once in a while. And Faith. FAITH!!!!! I just love Faith so much and I'm bitter, I'm very bitter about things that happend. BITTER. I also loved the friendship between Gia and Jaran, how he was there for her and took care of her when she was a total mess.

 

Now let's get to the spoilery part, normally I wouldn't mention them in reviews but I need to talk about it. Now. So I'm serious, don't read further if you don't wanna read spoilers. Don't.

 

Arik. Arik and Emily. I knew he was spelled somehow. Cause the Arik we got as soon as he got together with Emily, wasn't the Arik that I loved in the first book. So either the author decided to completely change his character or something fishy was going on with Emily. And I was so happy that Gia thought that as well and that she actually had Jaran looking for any marks or tattoos on Ariks body. BUT YOU IDIOTS DIDN'T LOOK HARD ENOUGH. When they figured out there wasn't a mark/tattoo and then Gia thought about Arik's hair being longer, I just screamed at her to look at his damn neck.

But no. No. This was just the opening for Gia and Bastien becoming a thing. And ugh, no. No, I'm not a fan. That were the parts I was so frustrated with that I wanted to skip them. Ooops, no offence to everyone liking them, I just don't.

 

The only good thing about Gia and Bastien falling into the thing whose name I can't remember right now, was that they found Gian (alive!!!) and Royston (THE ONE!!!).

 

I'm mad, that we actually lost Gian at the end of the book. I'm mad about Kale. And I'm super mad about Faith. Cause Faith was my baby. UGH!!!!!

Reading progress update: I've read 58 out of 416 pages.

Der Schneeleopard - Tess Gerritsen, Andreas Jäger

I got into it thinking this was the last book in the series. Turns out it's not. I'M HELLA EXCITED!!!!

Reading progress update: I've read 39%.

What the fudge, man? What the heck is going on with Arik? This is not the guy I loved in the first book. What did Emily do to him? Yes, I think that she is up to something.

Die Märchen von Beedle dem Barden / The Tales of Beedle the Bard!!!

Harry Potter: Die Märchen von Beedle dem Barden / Wilharm: Ein Klassiker aus der Zaubererwelt von Harry Potter - J.K. Rowling

Okay, das ist wahrscheinlich mein Lieblingsbuch von den Hogwarts Library Büchern. Die anderen fand ich echt auch überraschend toll, aber das hier war irgendwie etwas ganz besonderes.

 

Ich wollte nur eine der Geschichten lesen und auf einmal war ich bei der dritten Geschichte, dann war es nur ein kleiner Schritt bis ich auch die letzte Geschichte fertig gelesen hatte und am Liebsten würde ich es gleich nochmal lesen (aber ich hab Serien zu gucken).

 

Ich bin ein riesen großer Märchen Fan und hier fünf der Märchen zu lesen mit denen die Zauberkinder aufgewachsen sind, war irgendwie etwas ganz besonderes. Dann die Illustrationen, die dabei waren, die waren wirklich schön gemacht. Dumbledors Anmerkungen, waren auch nochmal etwas richtig tolles.

 

Ich bin begeistert!!!!

 

***

 

Okay, this is probably my favorite book out of these Hogwarts Library books. Surprisingly I really enjoyed the other two, but this one was something really special.

 

I just wanted to read one of the stories today and all of the sudden I reached the third story and then it was just a small step to finishing the last story and I kinda want to go back and read the stories again (but I have tv shows to watch).

 

I'm a huge fan of tales and to read five of the tales that the wizard children grew up on, was just something really special. The little illustrations were beautifully done. Dumbledor's notes, amazing, I loved it.

 

I'm just really excited about this!!!!!
