An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena | Review

Every once in a while I read a book that I cannot put down. Not even when I’m incredible tired. An Unwanted Guest is one of those books. Last year I read Shari Lapena’s thrilling debut, The Couple Next Door, and fell completely in love with Lapena’s writing.

Charley’s Web by Joy Fielding | Review

Charley’s Web is the second book I have ever read by Joy Fielding. So far, it has also been the last. I don’t even know why as I have enjoyed both Charley’s Web and Still Life.

Wintervanille von Manuela Inusa (Kalifornische Träume #1) | Rezension

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.

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). Continue reading After me comes the flood by Sarah Perry | Review

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
