In the middle of the fifth book of the "Throne of Glass" -Series. I do understand the fuss, that's surrounding it, now. Absolutely love that the women are not only empowered but also smart!

Started two days ago and I am already half way through. It's as captivating as the first!
Even though the "conclusions" the game draws are not entirely possible in real life... Not without a human behind it at least. It remains exiting!

1) Yes I do! My apologies to the authors with not so good graphic designers ...
2) I got The Subtle Knife as a birthday present as sequence to Northern Lights (love it)

Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan

I saw someone reading the new book "crazy rich grilfriens" (#3) in the train. I googeld it, read that it was funny and here we go: The frist in the series^^

Deifio Did you watch the film? I liked Nick in the film more. Though the left out Alice's story... 13mo
Tahoe Yeah I did out of curiosity. The book transfered the struggle (and kind of unhappiness) of the super rich better than the film. And I missed Asterids story as well. 13mo

I started yesterday on my way to work. Since then I can barely stop reading^^ it's easy, teen- English which fits perfectly the age of the characters. It's also making it effortless to read which is exactly what I need right now :D

I heard much about this book and I have to say I really liked it! Lots of fantasy but without the endless discriptions.

Erebos | Poznanski, Ursula

This book got me hooked!
Through fights in a virtual world it is exiting and adding to that you are witness of how the main character changes through Erebos. I loved it!

I don't pretend to know much about love, but that's how great lives come to an end, not in the flames of passion, but in the silence of regret.

Thank you very much for the tipp @LittleBug ! This were the books I got from 'Brösels Buchregal' in Hersbruck, it's a REAL win! It's really neat and has a good selection of books you actually want to read, other than many book sharing stations which get misused as storage for ancient books none wants anymore.

Mehso-so

It's interesting to read! For science-fiction fans I would almost say:a must read; but for me the writing style was hard because of so many 'scientific facts'. Still: I really like the ideas they poured in there (about one human race to conquer the galaxy and the discovery of other (more) intelligent beeings).

Madam President: A Novel | Nicolle Wallace
post image
Mehso-so

Sooo this book took me quite a while.
Most of the book was chewy and I had no urge to keep picking it up. Its written in a formal style since it displays a day in the White House with accurate language. But I would have hoped for more emphasis on the *female* president since that was what the title promised..
I needed to read this for a Seminar I am taking this Semester but for me personally I probably wouldn't have finished it.

Of course! When I come to think about it the best books I read had mostly over 400 pages 🤔😄

This book contains a lot of philosophical questions. You could just go on and on and on thinking about who's right with his/her opinion and how you still can understand the other view.Got the feeling I may add things to my review because there probably is much more that'll bubble to the surface only when thinking about it a little longer.
I needed to cry at some point, that barely ever happened so far.

I listend to the audio-book and it was a welcomed take-away to another time in history. Even though the beginning seemed outstretched it took on some speed until you get pulled in😄😉 you had time to get to know the characters and feel with them, especially Fiona (main character). 😊

Well this book had me tied up :D at first I was al little off because the Ideas seemed familar and predictable (at least for someone who read the "Selection" - series) and the love triangle was nothing new as well. But (!) because of the (really cool) abilitys and more action than I expected it was pretty gripping! So the supernatural won me over I guess^^ Let's start the next one O.O !!!

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego This series definitely reminds me of The Selection series too, but it's got a bit more substance. I'm really enjoying it. YA can be rather formulaic, but I still love it... Also welcome to Litsy 📖💙 4y
Tahoe Yes thats my impression as well. The intrigues and trust- earning after betrayal is really adding its part :D 4y
