Helena’s Secret (The Olive Tree) by Lucinda Riley | Review

I just finished Helenas Geheimnis by Irish author Lucinda Riley. In English the book was published as either Helena’s Secret or The Olive Tree. The paperback version of The Olive Tree is out at the end of July. Lucinda Riley happens to be my favourite author at the moment. I have read nearly all of her book.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty | Review

Apart from loving travelling and reading I am a TV addict. Or a TV-show addict I should say. So come February I got obsessed with this mini-series called “Big Little Lies”. It starred big names like Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and many many more. It was so different than anything else I had seen on TV at this point. The plot was suspenseful and the characters were relatable at the same time. So when I found out the source material came from a book by the same name by Australian author Liane Moriarty I just had to get it. Continue reading Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty | Review
