I don't think I'm dreaming.
What gave it away?
I ain't got the brains to make this up.

I didn't like a character as much as I like Jacob in a long long while!! #favoritecharacter

booksaremyreality Jacob ist einfach ein toller Charakter. Und das Zitat fand ich auch echt toll🙈 3y

Finally, finally, finally🎉 Believe me when I say: I'm SO EXCITED! I know I'm late, there have been a ton of posts about this book already... but since I watched the movie (loved it!) I was dying to read it (although the fact that it's a screenplay discouraged me at first). But just look at the cover...😍 Wish I could start reading at work! #canigohomeplease

So, I finally finished this one today🎉 It took me forever and I don't know why. I liked the plot, the writing, the characters... maybe I've just had enough of crime stories! #crime #jonesbo

I'm not quite sure why I like this quote so much. Probably because it reminds me of cotton candy?

scripturient Sounds interesting? What's your line of work? 3y
ani_sch Ich glaube ich kann dir auf Deutsch antworten, oder? Ich arbeite bei einem Corporate Publisher in der Produktgruppe Familien- und Kindermedien. Das heißt wir machen (im Auftrag unserer Kunden) Magazine und andere Medien für Kinder und junge Familien. Und da betreibe ich ab und an mal ganz gerne ein wenig Marktforschung? @scripturient 3y

ani_sch Ich bin auch sehr sehr froh, hier gelandet zu sein! Kann den Job Redakteur nur jedem empfehlen, der gerne schreibt? Wenn man am Ende seinen Artikel in der Hand hält, ist das schon ein cooles Gefühl! @scripturient @Tasau 3y
scripturient @ani_sch Ich hab im Studium bei der Zeitung gearbeitet und fand's auch toll. Da ging mir nur nachher das rücksichtslose Hetzen nach der besseren Story auf die Nerven. Darum bin ich dann doch in der Wissenschaft gelandet. ? Aber das ist wahrscheinlich eher bei den Tageszeitungen so ätzend. 3y
ani_sch Das ginge mir genauso wie dir! Da wir von unseren Kunden her auf den Bereich Gesundheit spezialisiert sind, bereiten wir Themen hauptsächlich kindgerecht auf und schreiben Ratgeber. Da fällt diese "Sensationsgier" zum Glück ganz weg. Wow, in der Wissenschaft, das finde ich auch super interessant! Forschung und Lehre? @scripturient 3y
scripturient @ani_sch Beides, aber eher Lehre. Englische Literaturwissenschaft. 😊 3y

"Ah," she cried, "you look so cool." Their eyes met, and they stared together at each other, alone in space. With an effort she glanced down at the table.
"You always look so cool," she repeated. She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw.

Exactly what I expected: A quick and easy read, thrilling with a surprising end.
Maybe not his best one but... you can't go wrong with a Fitzek!

Isn't this the coolest #cover for a book called "The Package"? I loved every single one of Fitzek's books I've read so far and since the opinions on this one are divided I can't wait to start reading it myself ?

Elizzy Ich fand es grosse Klasse und habe es in 4h durchgelesen! Viel Spass! 3y

The plot was amazing and intriguing but I always felt it would have been possible to get even more out of it. The story sometimes seemed constructed and the character's emotions simple and repetitive. Nonetheless, I enjoyed reading this book. The third part was the most exciting! #christmasreads

Broken Harbor pulled me in from the very first page. Mysteries, complicated relationships... I wanted to read this book all at once. It never got boring or predictable. Definitely a page turner and one of the best #crimenovels I've read in a while! Superbly written!

Today it's Saint Nicholas Day in Germany🎅🏼 Children place one of their boots or shoes in front of the front door the night before and the next morning it's filled with sweets and maybe a little present from Saint Nicholas.
So here is one of my favorite christmassy #childrensbooks 👴🏼🐱 It's a series about the old Pettersson and his cat Findus. It's set in Sweden and the illustrations are just too cute!

On to the next one 📚 It's a #crimenovel in #german again (OT: Broken Harbor). The cover fits the frosty weather outside perfectly❄️ #tanafrench #crime

Not my favorite Håkan Nesser but still a good one. As I mentioned before, it's not the typical crime story. It's more about the characters; their personalities, stories and development, than about the crime itself. So some might say there's too little going on. There were a lot of mysterious things happening to the main character and I was curious to find out who or what caused them. But in the end some questions remain unanswered.

🇺🇸When I looked up to that window I saw the face. It was pale, almost white, and belonged to a young man, who obviously watched us from up there. Absolutely motionless, so for a moment I thought it was a mannequin. But it was no mannequin. After 10 seconds of standing there and watching each other, he gently raised his right hand and did a very clear gesture in front of his neck. He moved it across his throat. The meaning was unequivocal. #scary

??Gruselige Vorstellung... es wird spannend!
??Free translation: "I lit the two candles on the table. Lay down and thought for a moment. Listened to the whispering sounds of the rhododendron branches on the window sill. The wind had picked up. There were no curtains in the living room. If there stood a person or animal two meters away from my house looking inside, I would never know." What a scary notion!

After reading all five GoT books in a row, I needed something very different. So my next read will be a #crimenovel by the Swede #hakannesser in #German. I've already read a few of his books and loved them! A recommendation for everyone who does not want to read a typical crime story.

A Dance with Dragons | George R. R. Martin

I didn't want to finish this book because: When will there be the next one? I feel like the story could go on forever with so many open lines of action. Will Deanerys reach Westeros? If she does, what will happen and what role are Connington and Tyrion going to play? And what about Bran, Jon, Arya, Sansa and Sam?
Even though I'm really looking forward to learn what will happen to Deanerys, my favorite parts of the series are set in the north!

Perhaps it's true that things can change in a day. That a few dozen hours can affect the outcomes of whole lifetimes. [...] Little events, ordinary things, smashed and reconstituted. Imbued with new meaning. Suddenly they become the bleached bones of a story.
