The Bookshop of My Choice feat. Die Spur der Bücher by Kai Meyer

Triggered by Kai Meyer’s Die Spur der Bücher, here’s a walk down memory lane: Remembering Libretto, the tiny bookshop of my childhood and teenage years, a handful of book orders and bookish incidents featuring Libretto’s very helpful bookseller Johannes, and a bookshop visit bringing back the good old times …

Review: Kopfüber ins Abenteuer (Zoe: Das Glück hat vier Hufe, #1)

The novel begins with a trope and a lovely spin on it: There are new horses arriving at the stable, but not just any horses! Oh no, these two are stunt horses! Protagonist Zoe is not impressed though and that’s what I love about her. She’s worried about their well-being and eyes the training very suspiciously …

Wrap-Up August 2017

Um, apparently, I haven’t posted a Wrap-Up post since October 2015. That was ages ago. I can’t believe how much has happened since then.

End of Year Survey 2016

Hey, I’m even a little over a month earlier than last year! As always, I semi-prepared this but didn’t finish in time, but wanted to finish it nevertheless. It’s supposed to be functioning as a memory aid for my future self. Anyway, here are some of the books I’ve read in 2016 and my thoughts on them …
