Books of the week - return of the great books


This week, just as I was hoping last week, turned out to be a great one. I read three great books and also received some great new books. Life is good!

Books I bought

The big stone gap - Adriana Trigiani  
White Oleander - Janet Fitch  
The Blackstone key - Rose Melikan  
White Oleander - Janet Fitch

Marrying Mary - Betty Neels  
A girl in a million - Betty Neels  
The quiet professor - Betty Neels

Bad taste in boys - Carrie Harris  (not shown in picture)
Sequins, Stars and Spotlights - Sophia Bennett

Katy Carter wants a hero - Ruth Saberton 

Good books I read

Slightly Irregular - Rhonda Pollero 
Very funny and entertaining, I got exactly what I hoped for. 

Among the nameless stars - Diana Peterfreund  free prequel, read here
A great way to introduce readers to the world of "For Darkness shows the stars", I loved that it is told from Kai's POV.

For Darkness shows the stars - Diana Peterfreund 
Fantastic, I felt what the characters felt and loved reading every page. My Book Impressions post will be published next week.

Which books are your favourites of the week?


I'm reading right now

A fitting end - Melissa Bourbon
Fated - Alyson Noel
A girl in a million - Betty Neels 
Never say goodbye - Betty Neels  

Next I plan to read
Next week I plan to finally read some of the ebooks I bought (why did I buy them all?), my goal is to get my virtual TBR pile to under ten books, now it's 73. Of course I can't achieve that next week, but I have to start somewhere.

The ebooks I plan to read are
No turning back - Tiffany Snow  
Maid of Murder - Amanda Flower  
Cross my heart - Katie Klein  
Rock Chick Renegade - Kirsten Ashley  
Unlovable - Sherry Gammon  
The grey tier - Michele Scott 
Oppression - Jessica Therrien  
Shift - Em Bailey 

That should be more than enough for a start. :)

  1. The stars must be in perfect alignment, because it's been an amazing week in reading for me too!
    I read two books by Frances Hardinge and I absolutely totally loved them - "A Face like Glass" and "Twilight Robbery". The first one is like Terry Pratchett writing Alice in Wonderland, the second one is also very Discworld-esque. Marvelous wordsmith!!

    1. Yay, that's great. I have never heard of Hardinge before, but I will check out his (her?) books.

      Happy Reading!

  2. Do you also read books from the library?

    1. Our library is very small and doesn't have any of the English books I like to read. But of course that's to be expected because most people prefer to read German books.

  3. I see that you are reading A Fitting End. I still have not read Plearing for Mercy, but plan to read the series myself. White Oleander has been on my TBR for awhile. Enjoy all of your great books.
