Return on Investment | Aleksandr Voinov

Pickpick

I don't know shit about banking and investment. So I basically didn't understand half the book.
But I really enjoyed what I understood! There is so much scheming and plotting going on, the world of finance is quite scary.
I really like how well researched the authors books are and how real they feel.

The Bridge | Bill Konigsberg

Pickpick

What an emotional and very important book! I hope it helps many people who might need help!
It centers around two teens that struggle with depression. It has four storylines of how their and their close ones live would've been if, after they went to a bridge to end their lives: One or the other jumped, both jumped and no one jumped but they helped each other.

Holy shit... I so not expected all the things that happened in this book... I'm not even sure if I can comprehend everything that happened.
There was so much mystery and heat and delicious darkness in the book that made my heart race constantly.
I cursed myself so much after reading the first book that I had to wait for the sequel... It's even worse now to wait for the third book...

KristiAhlers I loved this series so much! I can‘t wait for the next in the series. 2w

I already read and likes a few of your books and I'm really happy that you put those on my radar! I basically picked all but one book of those I haven't read.

I'm in love with this series!
The story and the characters hooked me so much and I still can't stop thinking about them.

It starts with Grey getting kidnapped from a human traffic ring and how Darius gets him out. I really liked that the sequels deal a lot with the aftermath of coping and then the dismantling of the ring.
Let's be honest, it's in no way realistic but it gave me nice feelings and 5 books with them so who cares about realism.

Anyone ever realized how disturbing nursery rhymes are?!

(Okay I admit… they are more creepy in this context of a possible psychopath singing… but still!)

I just finished Season One of the Criminal Intentions series by Cole McCade.
I might‘ve read all 13 books in six days… They‘re just too good!!!

Riveted_Reader_Melissa That ones particularly dark because it‘s really about the plague (Black Death), here‘s a bit of the meaning behind the words. https://medium.com/weird-history/ring-around-the-rosie-a-song-for-the-plague-464... 3mo

OMG
The book series I‘m currently obsessing over just had a cameo of the main character of a book I‘m in love with since reading it first in May! I squeeled so loud that I startled my hamster 😅
I just love when authors do that!

(also that means I have to reread ‘Just like that‘ again very soon. It‘s not like I‘m invested in series that has 28 books out right now…)

I‘m obsessed with this series!
Every book is like an episode of a TV series and I really can‘t get enough!
I usually don‘t read crime but I liked other books from the author.
The books are quite graphic and gruesome and come with a lot of content warnings at the beginning but at the same time they are so beautifully written that my heart sometimes aches.

The only place I don‘t take a book with
(though I do have some on my phone…)

For the first time in 2.5 years I‘ve been around hundreds of people. It felt strange and I was constantly trying to keel distance from people.
But on the other hand it felt so good to do something and to see people.

Unfortunately my team lost but that‘s a whole different story…….

After reading two books based on Peter Pan I realized how disturbing the original actually is… How come that so many children stories are actually quite creepy and you only just realize it as an adult…?

Highly recommend both books btw!
Lost Boy is rather a prequel and has Captain Hook as one of Peter‘s boys.
The Child Thief is mixed with more folk legends and much more loosely based.

I realized that I often don‘t give 5-stars even though I now thought of it them 5-star reads and I had a little book-life-crisis... I rate right after I finish the book and I often can‘t really remember why I rate the way I did...

Anyone having a system in how to rate?

I very rarely read books in my mother language. It just sounds so strange in my head and it makes me cringe.
But for whatever reason I bought those four books last year...

(It‘s kind of funny that the titles on the spine are written the other way round than English books)

#ShowSomeLove #MotherLanguageDay
@TheKidUpstairs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Deifio I absolutely hate it that they are the "wrong" way in German! Drives me nuts! I like it when you put the book down - cover up - that you can read the title on the spine too without doing a handstand. Why do the German publishers do it differently? 9mo
LiteraryinLawrence It might be that English-speaking publishers do it differently? French and Spanish book are the “wrong” way too. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 9mo
jinxmoon I just spent an hour unsuccesfully searching for why that is... It seems like they just decided to do it this way or that way and most of continental Europe decided for the “wrong way” while US and UK prefered the other way 🤷 Somehow the “wrong way” actually makes more sense because it goes up the spine and it‘s better for shelving in alphabetical order 😱 @Deifio @LiteraryinLititz 9mo
Deifio Probably just a preference on which side to lean your head when reading the title on the spine. 😉 9mo

I do have another list with books I already ordered but haven‘t received yet. (It‘s very long and ongoing...)

📚 I don‘t really like to preorder books, because that often didn‘t work with me in Germany preordering English books.
By now I only preorder special editions. I preordered Empire of the Vampire, A Court of Silver Flames and Bone Criers Dawn.
