Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke

Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke

Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke My rating: 4 of 5 stars “He felt no regrets as the work of a lifetime was swept away. He had labored to take man to the stars, and, in the moment of success, the stars — the aloof, indifferent stars — had come to him.” Having grown up […]

The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder

The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder

The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder My rating: 4 of 5 stars I picked the book because of its promising summary and was slightly astonished to find the whole book versified. It took me a few pages to find the rhythm of the writing, but after that, it was a very interesting experience. From time […]

Das Erbe der Apothekerin by Karla Weigand

Das Erbe der Apothekerin: Roman by Karla Weigand My rating: 1 of 5 stars Nachdem ich schon seit längerem keinen historischen Roman mehr in der Hand hatte und „Das Erbe der Apothekerin“ von seinem Klappentext doch recht vielversprechend klang begann ich dieses Buch voll Vorfreude zu lesen.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent by Veronica Roth My rating: 5 of 5 stars “Divergent” by Veronica Roth – after Suzanne Collins’ „The Hunger Games“ now a new dystopian young adult book.

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare My rating: 4 of 5 stars I really liked the Mortal Instruments series and was glad to hear that there would be a fourth book.

Die Rose von Asturien by Iny Lorentz

Die Rose von Asturien by Iny Lorentz My rating: 4 of 5 stars Wie auch bei den anderen Werken des Münchner Autorenehepaar Iny Lorentz zeichnet sich “Die Rose von Asturien” durch eine ausführliche Recherche aus.
