@Sarah83 - have just picked up from here. Not far in yet, but it's getting more interesting, or I'm getting used to the style of writing.


TrishB 😂😂 8h
Sarah83 🤣🤣🤣 gut, dass ich es auf deutsch lese. 🤣 Aber auch da war ich schon teilweise irritiert. 🤩 8h
julesG @Sarah83 Der Stil ist gewöhnungsbedürftig. Und ich vermisse Kapitel. 😀 8h

Sarah83 Kommt noch mit den Kapiteln. Die sind sehr lang. 😉 Ja, ich liebe Bücher mit Schachtelsätzen. 8h
julesG @Sarah83 Jetzt muss ich doch mal genauer lesen, ob sich die Sätze im Englischen auch schachteln 8h
Sarah83 Der Anfang war unabhängig dessen auch sehr langatmig 8h
julesG @Sarah83 Aber der langatmige Anfang ist bestimmt wichtig. 😵 Weil das erklärt, warum die ganze Geschichte ist wie sie ist. - - Ich bin weiterhin gespannt. Du weißt ja, nur weil der Autor Preise abgeräumt hat, heißt das nicht, dass alles Gold ist was er schreibt. Oder, mit anderen Worten, traue keinem Buch auf dessen Cover der Autorenname größer als der Titel ist. 😁 8h
Megabooks 🤣🤣🤣 6h
Sarah83 Das stimmt definitiv. Ich mag das Buch schon. Wie weit bist du jetzt? 5h
julesG @Sarah83 nicht viel weiter. Da wo Arthur erkennt, dass die Bibelstunden nur Märchenstunden sind. S 20 oder so. Hab dann ein anderes Buch weiter gelesen. Damit ich alle abarbeiten kann 5h
Sarah83 Ok 😊 5h

A small birthday book haul so far. I've been joking I need 30, one for each year, but... I don't think we'll get there!

Eyelit I think you‘ve got a pretty solid argument 😄 2d
shanaqui @Eyelit Alas, my wife stuck to three, my sister managed two, and another two friends got me four between them... That seems to be it. I guess I'm 9 now! 2d

Not good at book photography yet

I adored the first in the series but now I'm struggling with the second because it's getting bogged down in waaaaay too much unnecessary detail 😕

xxjenadanxx It was a bit wordy but I loved it in the end! Stick it out!! 3d
Scochrane26 It is wordy & has a lot of characters, but I loved it. 3d
kyraleseberg @xxjenadanxx Thanks for the encouragement, I made it through! 17h
kyraleseberg @Scochrane26 It needed some serious editing (just my two cents!) but overall it was a good read, even though it got lost in the details at times. 17h
Scochrane26 @kyraleseberg I noticed the 3rd one is about the same length as the 1st, so hopefully it will be better editing. 16h

The Case for Jamie | Brittany Cavallaro
post image

[#BookReview] The Case For Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro. This is the third book in the four part Charlotte Holmes series. It is my favorite up to this point so far and I am so excited to pick up the fourth book! I am impatiently waiting for my borrowed copy to arrive at my library. I‘m in love with this series! 📖🔎


A Study in Charlotte | Brittany Cavallaro

2.5 ⭐
Maybe my expectations were too high going in to this one, but I didn't really enjoy it at all. I didn't connect with the characters. I didn't understand their thoughts or reactions, or how the relationships between them were built and changed. I also felt like there were some really serious topics (murder, rape, drug use, self harm, trauma) that were flippantly dealt with. I'm gonna give the rest of the series a miss.

4thhouseontheleft Great review. You have me rethinking reading this. 6d

The The Last of August | Brittany Cavallaro

As good as the 1st? Maybe not but still good. I liked the complexity of the relationships- especially between Watson and Holmes. But every relationship was complicated and different from one another which is more true to life.
Of course an unexpected ending, Holmes-style.
