New books I bought
This week I received some nice new books in the mail. Three of the five books I bought are books I already read before, but sometimes you just need a second copy of a book.
Edge of Nowhere - Elizabeth George
mystery, YA, first in a new series
I listened to the German audio book version months ago and really enjoyed it. The story is a bit muddled and the heroine does sometimes stupid things, but that fit IMO perfectly to how she grew up and to the fear she lives with. Thumbs up from me and I'm happy to finally have a English copy of the book.
Little Hobbit - JRR Tolkien
I so far only owned a German version of the book and it was finally time to get it in the original language.
Angels Fall - Nora Roberts
romantic suspense, adult
This is the perfect cover for the story, a story I love deeply. So of course I had to get a second copy of the book.
Dragon's Moon - Lucy Monroe
paranormal historical romance, adult
This is #4 in the Children of the Moon series, so far I have enjoyed
A walk in the park - Jill Mansell
chick lit, adult
Mansell's books are always a bit hit or miss for me, this one sounds like it could be a hit. As always the book promises drama, a lot of characters and love stories.
I'm reading right now
The Apothecary - Maile Meloy
fantasy, YA (maybe even a bit younger)
I love the drawings in the book, so far the story is special and lovely.
The Nightingale Girls - Donna Douglas
historical fiction, adult
This book is the first in a new series that sounds very exciting. It's about a group of young nurses in London of 1934.
