What are you currently reading?

hieroffire

title: heir of fire
author: sarah j. maas
progress: 167/565 pages
status: weeeell, i am a little disappointed. in the first 100 pages nothing special happened and i missed the feeling of “throne of glass” and “crown of midnight”. last night i read 50 more pages and it’s slowly getting exciting. but nothing i really hoped for. we’ll see, there is still some pages to go.

 

olivertwist

title: oliver twist
author: charles dickens
progress: 107/531 pages
status: i am really, really enjoying this so far. i love oliver and the writing is so good. i really get lost to hear about oliver’s story. it’s easy to read and i am so happy, i picked this up.

 

Dragonfly in Amber - Diana Gabaldon

title: dragonfly in amber
author: diana gabaldon
progress: 6%
status: sooo, i didn’t plan on this to happen, but i am really determined to finish this book this time. i go it with my audioble credit and listening to it as an audiobook. i hope i will enjoy it more than at the beginning of the year. currently i am still relistening to the part i have already read but i acutally enjoy it so far. 🙂

 

 

What did you recently finish reading?

mazerunner

author:
james dashner
rating: ⭐⭐⭐

thoughts: i picked this up, because i needed a new audiobook and it was available at my library. i have seen the movie many times by now, because let’s be honest, i love dylan o’brien. 😀 but the book was very different. there were so many things changed in the movie adaptation, i was surprised. all in all it was an ok book for me, but nothing special.

nyxia

title: nyxia
author: scott reintgen
rating: ⭐⭐⭐.75
thoughts: yay, i did it! i finally picked it up again. yesterday i was totally in a sci-fi mood again and i finished “nyxia”. it really sucks, that i had this break and didn’t enjoy it back then, because the last third was amazing and full of action. it was so good. but i can’t give it more stars unfortunately. review will be up for this soon.

author: gabrielle zevin
rating: ⭐⭐⭐
thoughts: 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 don’t know what i expected from this book, but it wasn’t this. i enjoyed listening to it and shocked and surprised many times but i am not sure if this is an audiobook book. i think i would have enjoyed it more, if i had read it physically.

 

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

i have absolutely no idea! 😀 it will be a surprise for me and for you haha 😀

What are you currently reading?

just for your information: i put down “war & peace” by leo tolstoy. i wasn’t having fun reading it anymore. it felt like a chore and i was forcing myself to it, so i put it down for now. the same goes for “nyxia” by scott reintgen. i am still on page 237. i don’t have much left, but somehow i can’t convince myself to pick it up and finish it…

 

uncommon tyoe

title: uncommon type: some stories
author: tom hanks
progress: 64%
status: i love this audiobook so much. tom hanks is narrating himself and even though i am not a big fan of short stories, i just love listening to tom hanks voice. so far there were some stories, that gave me goosebumps, that made me laugh and also cry. there’s something for everybody and i love this! 🙂

 

emma

title: emma
author: jane austen
page: 40
status: after i decided to put down “war & peace” i picked up my last austen novel. i wanted to read all her books this year and this one is the last. i divided the chapters and want to finish it in november. i didn’t make it through yesterdays chapters, because i was exhausted after i came home, but i am hopeful, that i will read this in november.

 

artemis2.jpg

title: artemis
author: andy weir
page: 32
status: on saturday i went book shopping with my best book buddy and yaaaay, i picked up “artemis” by andy weir. i was so surprised to see it already on the shelves. i canceled by preorder and got it. i started on sunday evening, but busy life kept me from reading. after the first chapter i can say, that this could be good! 😀

dontletgo

title: don’t let go
author: harlan coben
rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
thoughts: i love harlan coben’s thrillers. they are easy to get through. you are guessing throughout the whole book. there are twists and turns and you want to know what’s happening. i really enjoyed this story, although it’s not my favorite by him. but i will read any thriller by him, because i love his writing.

 

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

honestly, i have absolutely no idea! this will be a surprise for you and me! 😀
