lit.Love Talk #1

2020 is a special year for us lit.Love Blogger, we created a monthly feature for our blogs and Instagram (if you aren’t already, follow me 😉 ), called lit.Love Talk. Every 7th of the month we’ll be asking you questions. We’ll answer as well, of course. There will be different questions about books and lit.Love authors.

If you need a reminder or have never heard of lit.Love, here are all the authors who have participated so far. There are a few international author like Lucinda Riley or Sophie Kinsella as well, so you might have read some lit-Love novels without knowing.

And now let’s get started:

Which lit.Love novel has been your favourite 2019 and which are you looking forward to the most 2020?

It’s really hard actually picking a single novel that really stood out more than any other, but if I really had to choose I’d pick Ein Sommer voller Himbeereis by Persephone Haasis.

Ein Sommer voller Himbeereis

It’s a sweet, lovely love story between an ice cream shop owner and the grandson of the shop owner next door. I also got the chance to meet Persephone at lit.Love and she is such a nice and sweet person. I can’t wait to read her next novel that comes out in April.

Although it is not my most anticipated lit.Love release of 2020. That title has to go to my all time favourite author, the amazing Lucinda Riley, and the final book in the Seven Sisters Series, The Lost Sister. Seriously, I cannot wait to read that book. I’ll probably cry from start to finish just knowing its the last one in my favourite series beside Harry Potter.

So that’s me. How about you? What was your favourite novel by a lit.Love author this year and what book by a lit.Love author are you dying to read 2020?

Wintervanille von Manuela Inusa (Kalifornische TrĂ€ume #1) | Rezension

Manuela Inusa nimmt uns mit in das schöne, winterliche SĂŒdkalifornien und löste in mir unglaubliches Fernweh aus. Ein wunderschönes Buch, das mir von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite ein LĂ€cheln auf die Lippen gezaubert hat. WĂ€rmstens zu empfehlen mit Keksen an seiner Seite. Die Kekse, die CeCe im Buch backt und deren Rezept Inusa in ihrem Buch teilt habe ich noch nicht ausprobiert – mit der Betonung auf noch -, aber jede Art von Keks passt gut zu diesem Buch.

Sophie Kinsella: “My life does spill into the books and the books spill into my life.” | Interview

The brilliant Sophie Kinsella joins me at lit.Love in Munich for a chat about books and travel. Sophie talks about her time in Vienna, how she gets her inspiration for characters and if she would ever go back to one of her stand-alones. I hope you enjoy this chat as much as I did.

After me comes the flood by Sarah Perry | Review

I first heard about Sarah Perry, because of her bestseller, The Essex Serpent, and the rave reviews it got in my Twitter-feed. So obviously, it became part of my to-be-bought-list (yes, I have one of those and it tallies at over 200 books at the moment, with more and more getting added almost every day – I might have a problem).

A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult* | Review

Jodi Picoult never shied away from controversial topics and her latest book is no exception. A Spark of Light could not have come out at a better time. Mass shootings are in the news constantly and abortion rights are talked about all the time as well.  Continue reading “A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult* | Review”
