Translation for the quote by Kafka on one of the bookmarks: A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us.

Devil May Cry + Bad Moon Rising (Dark Hunter) - Sherrilyn Kenyon


Dark Hunter series
once upon a time I loved the Dark Hunters
especially the first paranormal romances in the series
but I haven't read any of books in the last five years or so
because the stories no longer appeal to me
too many new characters
too many plot developments that didn't seem natural 
that felt very constructed and forced
too many romances that didn't touch my heart
things stopped making sense
I reread two of the books from my shelves I wasn't sure about
should they stay on my shelves or not?
Devil May Cry (#13) worked for me
so it will stay on my shelf
Bad Moon Rising  (#19)
no longer worked for me
so it will go
at that point the series had already started to change
I no longer felt at home within the stories
I no longer cared about all of the new characters
it's hard for an author to find the perfect moment to finish a series
in my opinion that moment was missed with the Dark Hunter books
there is one upcoming book I might read
and that is Savitar's story
other than that I'm no longer interested in any new books
set in the Dark Hunter world.

The coincidence of coconut cake - Amy E. Reichert


The Coincidence of Coconut Cake
contemporary romance adult
I love the cover of the book
it fits to the story perfectly
and makes me hungry :)
the title is also great
I bought this book after reading the synopsis
and some reviews on the story
it all sounded so good
I did not read an excerpt before buying the book
and yes, this was of course a mistake
in theory this book should have been perfect for me
but from the first page on I struggled with the writing style
I never got into a good reading flow
something bothered me constantly
plus I did not care that much about the romance
and did not like the male main character
however I enjoyed getting to know the city the story is set in
I loved how restaurants and other places were described
but this was not enough to make the story work for me.
