Reading next #13 - the new books are here

It's time to show you my new reading pile, a reading pile that is full of interesting books that I expect to be great. This time I tried to go for a good mix of different genres, because I'm right now in the mood for all kinds of books!

Linna singt - Bettina Belitz (German book)

contemporary, NA
This is a book that sounds a bit mysterious and messed up, I hope I will like it as much as the books from the Splitterherz trilogy.

Grischa (German version; Shadow & Bone in the USA aka The Gathering Dark in the UK) - Leigh Bardugo 

fantasy, YA, #1 in the Grisha series
I have heard so many good things about this book, it just has to be great.
Check out the new, wonderful German cover for #2 in the series: http://www.carlsen.de/hardcover/grischa-band-2-eisige-wellen/25040

Far Rockaway - Charlie Fletcher

fantasy, YA, stand-alone
This sounds like an interesting book, but to be honest I don't know that much about what is going to happen. :) I'm excited to be surprised and hopefully amazed by the book.

The great escape - Susan Elizabeth Phillips

contemporary, adult, stand-alone
Let's hope that with this book I will get back my love for books by SEP, I had huge issues with the two books before.

Riveted - Meljean Brook

steampunk romance, adult, #3 in the Iron Seas series
Will I fall back in love with the series or will the trend from book #2 continue? So many important questions that need to be answered. ;)

The End of Mr Y - Scarlett Thomas

Speculative fiction, adult, stand-alone
This book promises to be mysterious and thrilling, plus it's a novel within a novel book, I usually love these. 

Running Wild - Linda Howard & Linda Jones

romantic suspense, adult, #1 in the Men from Battle Ridge series
This is the first book in a new romantic suspense series, and I expect a sexy hero, a smart heroine and a good story.

What are you reading now & next?


  1. I'm very ecxited, if you'll like 'Grischa', because I didn't like it at all, but a lot of readers do. We'll see ... ;-)

    1. I'm reading the book right now and I'm enjoying it so far.
      Lately I have also read some books I didn't enjoy, but everyone else seemed to love them, that can be a bit frustrating.

  2. I'm really curious how you will like 'Running Wild' - the book is on my wishlist too, but I'm not quite sure about it. Happy Reading!

    1. I hope that it will be a bit like some of the older books by Linda Howard were, that would be great.

  3. You are going to LOVE Grischa! I put off reading it for a while because I felt like I didn't understand what it was about exactly.. I guess the blurb was vague. But I ended up adoring it! I hope you do too. :)

    1. I already finished it and really did love it. The writing style was fantastic and I can't wait to read book #2 in the series.
