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. Charley’s Web follows Charley Webb, a columnist for a newspaper in Florida. The name of the book is a wordplay on the children’s book Charlotte’s Web and obviously also works with Charley’s last name. Continue reading “Charley’s Web by Joy Fielding | Review”

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

Manuela Inusa nimmt uns mit in das schöne, winterliche Südkalifornien und löste in mir unglaubliches Fernweh aus. Ein wunderschönes Buch, das mir von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite ein Lächeln auf die Lippen gezaubert hat. Wärmstens 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.

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”

What We Owe by Golnaz Hashemzadeh Bonde* | Review

Some books surprise you more than you ever thought they would. For me, What We Owe by Golnaz Hashemzadeh Bonde was one of those books. I was really excited about reading it, as the blurb sounded really interesting. After I started reading, however, I got confused and a little irritated, I wasn’t so sure the book I was reading was the same book the blurb described.
