Inhalt

Die Vergangenheit vergisst man nicht so leicht. Sie verfolgt einen immer wieder, auch wenn man für kurze, nicht langanhaltende Momente glaubt, sie vergessen zu können, kommt sie immer wieder und erinnert uns. Erinnerungen sind ein heikles Gespinst, welches Kit Larson nicht in Ruhe lässt. Diese hat nämlich einige Erinnerungen, vor allem Shawn Scarlett betreffend. Kit hat Shawn nämlich nicht nur ihre Jungfräulichkeit geschenkt, sondern ihr Herz gleich dazu. Als sie sich sechs Jahre später wiedersehen, ist es genauso wie damals. Kit spielt für Shawns Band The Last Ones to Know vor um zu ihnen zugehören. Nehmen wir noch ihre Familie, bestehend aus vier Brüdern und zwei Sorgen erfüllten Eltern und das Chaos ist tatsächlich praktisch vorprogrammiert.

Charaktere

Gleich mal vorweg; Ich liebe Kit. Sie ist im New Adult Genre (so nenne ich es jetzt mal) eindeutig meine weibliche Lieblingshauptfigur. Sie ist selbstbewusst, steht dazu, wenn sie mal einen Fehler macht und benimmt sich auch schon mal daneben. Kit weiß genau was sie will und das war nun mal schon immer Shawn.
            Shawn ist jemand von dem ich dachte, dass er ein wenig langsam ist. Langsam im Sinne von, bei ihm fällt der Groschen eher nicht so schnell, doch ich sag einmal gleich, dass ich mich geirrt habe. Ich kann ihn ehrlich gut leiden, vor allem da man ihm seine Entwicklung anmerkt. Nichts ist hinreißender, als ein Mann der zu seinen begangenen Fehlern steht.
            Ich LIEBE Kits Zwillingsbruder und ich sage mal, ich mag wie sich diese Reihe entwickelt hat, aber dazu mehr im ‚Meinungs‘-Part.
            Und Kits ältere Brüder sind toll. Ich fand es schon immer cool, wenn man größere Brüder in eine Geschichte einbaut und diese hier, sind perfekt beschrieben.

Autorin

Jamie Shaw ist in Pennsylvania aufgewaschen und hat im Blanvalet Verlag bereits die Bücher „Rock my Heart“ und „Rock my Body“ veröffentlicht. Am 19.06.2017 hat sie diesen Titel, „Rock my Soul“ veröffentlicht und am 17.07.2017 erscheint „Rock my Dreams“

Meinung & Empfehlung

Zu aller erst möchte ich den Blanvalet Verlag danken, dass sie mir das Buch zugesendet haben und möchte hinzufügen, dass dies hier in keiner Weise meine Meinung beeinflusst.
            Nun, da das festgestellt ist, äußere ich meine Meinung mal.
Ich habe bereits „Rock my Body“ gelesen und es zwar gemocht, doch die Hauptfigur Dee war nicht unbedingt meine Lieblingshauptfigur. Vor allem nicht verglichen mit Kit. Kit ist toll und ich finde, dass Shawn und sie perfekt zusammenpassen. Das Jamie Shaw sich innerhalb dieses Buches ein weniger der Zeit angepasst hat (wie und auf welche Art müsst ihr schon selbst herausfinden sonst würde ich ja spoilern), finde ich sogar noch besser. „Roch my Soul“ ist eindeutig gut gelungen und ich sehr froh es gelesen zu haben. Ich bin sogar kurz davor der Versuchung zu erliegen und „Rock my Dreams“ anzufragen oder einfach vorzubestellen, da ich unbedingt Mikes Geschichte erfahren möchte.
            Nun, ich denke es ist klar, dass ich dieses Buch sehr weiterempfehlen kann und möchte, dass ihr es lest. Ich habe es innerhalb einer „Sitzung“, also in einem durchgelesen und konnte gar nicht mehr aufhören.

Crooked Kingdom



Hi bookworms!
I planned a big fat book talk for Crooked Kingdom today, but I have so MANY scenes that I would want to talk about and it would be too much for one single post. So I’ll simply write down some quotes, some thoughts, some scenes – mostly about Kaz Brekker … but yeah



 “We meet fear. We great the unexpected visitor and listen to what he has to tell us. When fear arrives, something is about to happen.” – Inej POV

Inej got taken away by Van Eck. We all know our Wraith and how much Kaz cares about her, so that we can only imagine, how hard this time was for all of the Dregs.

Kaz is pretty much on edge, like he tried to hurt Wylan – that’s how much he suffers from Inej’s absence. Also, Matthias is getting all flirty and lovey dovey about Nina and Jesper & Wylan flirting makes me so so happy!!

Of course, there were six scenes I will NEVER forget.
1) When Inej told Kaz that she wasn’t sure he would come … man, this was so intense. Like HE was the one who made her believe she couldn’t trust him and he knows that, but still he insists, that he would’ve never not come to rescue her, and we all know that this is true.
2) The talk Inej and Jesper have, after Inej is back.

“This action will have no echo” - Inej

3) When Leigh Bardugo made us all think that Wylan and Jesper finally kissed, just to find out that it was Kuwei Jesper has been kissing.
4) AND THEN the FREAKING BATHROOM SCENES! I couldn’t breathe, like at all. Out of breath. Totally. This was simply amazing.
5) When Wylan and Jesper kiss, this time for real.
6) AND Kaz and Inej at the end … these two make me so happy

Yes, it did hurt, when Matthias died. But I never liked him so much. I didn’t dislike him, because he made Nina happy, but as a character he wasn’t really likeable.

My favourite quote

“And that was what destroyed you in the end: the longing for something you could never have” – Kaz POV

Come on … we ALL know what, or better, who he was thinking about … don’t pretend …

Btw – I RECOMMEND THIS DUOLOGY WITH ALL MY HEART - go buy it and read it … now

May Bookhaul

Hi guys!


I finished Crooked Kingdom this month that's why I went and bought the Grisha Trilogy ... because I'm not able to contain myself! Literally NO SELF CONTROL ..
Also, I HAD to buy ACOWAR ... I went through rough days, people. I cried and hated everyone until this baby didn't arrive at my flat. I've been a mess .. don't ask.
I got Blue Lily, Lily Blue because the other English edition I already own, doesn't match the rest of the series ... this one does, sounds logical, right?

May Wrap Up / June TBR

May Wrap Up

So May has been a crazy month, really. Exams were killing me, presentations suffocating me and I've been close to a mental break down, I swear! BUT May's over now, and June will be worse, so I shouldn't be complaining, right?

I read A LOT, like really, a lot and there have been good ones and bad ones. I got to know Rhysand and Feyre (*gush*) and continued the Shades of Magic series, together with my reading buddy Saskia. I finished the SoC Duology, and I utterly loved it.

So we can say, it has been a pretty good month.


June TBR

Oh June, you are starting off, where May left. Ha ha. No really, don't kill me please. I got TWO WEEKS of hell waiting in June for me, so you can imagine HOW excited I am. For the reading front (let's call it that way, because I don't know another word) I got a lot planned for June. As I'm writing this, I already read "Wo das Dunkel schläft", which is the German edition of "The Raven King" and I finished "Ari and Dante" one or two hours ago (I loved it btw.)

What do you plan to read this month?

A Court of Wings and Ruin



This is the last blog post about the ACOTAR series for a while. Like in the previous two book talks, I’m going to ramble and talk about ACOWAR and its scenes. The ones I hate, the ones I love and the ones that shook me the most. This is also VERY spoilery so read at your own risk, sweethearts.
But let’s start with the rambles.

                So Feyre is back at the Spring Court … great. Tamlin is here *vomit* and believes Feyre’s every word, what makes him either REALLY stupid or really in love and therefore oblivious, while Lucien doesn’t trust Feyre, but warmed my heart when he admitted that she was a better friend to him, then he has been to her. That’s true and we all know that.
                Ianthe is there, too. Trying to make herself popular or whatever and making me want to shoot her. I can’t explain how much I loathe her entire existence. AND the fact that he made Lucien sleep with her on Calanmai, what makes Tamlin not only a stupid fiancée but also a bad friend.
                But then Feyre and Rhys talking through the bond is making me so happy, but the fact that it’s harder for them to talk like this made me so suspicious. I mean I know now why it has been like that but I knew from the start that something wasn’t right here.
                Oh and when Feyre made Tamlin jealous with Lucien, I swear I shipped it for a second, I had to and then when this moment was over, I was just like ‘YAAAAAAS IN YOUR FACE TAMLIN!’
                Jurien talking about Rhys made me like him a little bit. People are telling me that Tamlin redeemed himself, but NO – he still didn’t get his temper under control and Rhys being the sweet and cute telling her he wants Tamlin dead. You go, Rhys – you go. And the fact that Alis knows what Feyre is doing, makes me happy too, thank you haha
The killer siblings from Hybern are the reason Feyre’s and Lucien’s power vanishes.
AND THEN – my babies are back, saving Lucien and Feyre, bringing them BACK HOME to our baby Rhys. Let’s skip this whole gushing about Feysand being reunited, the Inner Circle being complete and the Archeron sisters being okay and skip to the part where Cassian argues with Feyre about her leaving. He was devastated and afraid, because Rhysand did the same damn thing many years ago.
                The Bone Carver showing Feyre her and Rhys’ future son is so beautiful. Rhys and Feyre went back to the Court of Nightmares, letting everyone see their new HIGH LADY.
Then there is the scene where the Summer Court is attacked by Hybern and the Inner Circle is fighting for them, but the best is when Tarquin totally isn’t in for Rhys rebellious ways.
My FAVOURITE PART: when the High Lords had a MASSIVE slumber party, because let’s be real. This meet up was exactly that. And yet when Tamlin acts like an asshole, Rhys making him mute, caused a big fat laughter from me … so yeah. And Helion is great, even if later Feyre realizes that he is probably Lucien’s father (who sleeps with Mor btw.).
                And when the Suri reappeared, I was the happiest person. But then Ianthe shows up, ruining everything as usual and Feyre feeding her to the Weaver was exactly the way I wanted her to die. SO, thank you SJM!

Also, Mor being gay is something I totally like over here, because I never shipped her and Az … I’m shipping him with Elain so much, especially after he gave her Truth Teller. Rhys and his speech broke my heart and this whole war thing made me crazy, but I must admit that SJM is really good at describing fight and war scenes.
And then Cassian broke my heart, by saying he’ll see Rhys on the other side … we all know he didn’t mean the other side of the battlefield and I cried like a baby. While Hybern dies I was like: YAS CASSIAN AND NESTA, YEEEEES
Amren left .. leaving us all behind with a freaking hole in our hearts, and don’t you dare say that this didn’t hurt you at all. AND THEN RHYS DIED and I cried out loud, tears dropping on my bed, screaming from the inside and I couldn’t hold back the tears. Feyre made me feel even more like a puddle of feelings. They brought him back … they brought him back and even if people try to convince me that Tamlin redeemed himself my telling Feyre to be happy … NO FREAKING WAY he didn’t … nice, you accepted it good for you Tamlin but you act like an ass most of the time, and one little sentence is never going to change that.
                From there on there is love everywhere … everyone’s happy – and I am too
So that was it for the book talk. I hoped it wasn’t that much of a mess and I hope you all enjoyed it.
Lots of love
