4.) starfish

author: akemi dawn bowman
rating⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

my review:
this is a heartbreaking and heartwarming story about a girl who doesn’t know where she belongs to. she just wants to get away and find her own way and live her dream as a painter. to overcome her fears. not to depend on anybody and be free of her dark past. it is emotional and will definitely make you cry. you will feel so many different feelings while reading this book. read my full review here

rating⭐⭐⭐.5

my review:
is a funny and light contemporary that will definitely make you laugh at some points. if you enjoy love stories, you will like this. i enjoyed the audiobook, because it was narrated very well and made me laugh. i just wasn’t happy with the ending and the serious relationship development in such a short time. read my full review here

i liked “fahrenheit 451”. i had mixed feelings, i was shocked, i enjoyed it. but i think it would have been much better, if i hadn’t listened to the audiobook.

review⭐⭐⭐

my review:
this was a book i read through the traveling book project germany and although i love stories about memory loss, i didn’t enjoy this one that much. i really struggled with the main character, because she was so annoying and out of place at some points. i think i will write a review for this, but i am not sure yet.

i am really mad about this one. i stopped reading it, because i wasn’t in a sci-fi mood anymore and i had problems to get into it. but after picking it up back again i loved the last third. read my full review here

review: ⭐⭐⭐

my review:
i have heard so many good things about this family story, but unfortunately it was nothing special to me. there was even one part i still don’t know what to think of. but after “watching glass shatter”, this just wasn’t good enough. it was just ok.
