Newbies September 2015

01st December 2015

I already mentioned in my Wrap-Up that September wasn’t a good month for me. I got rather depressed, which makes me even more prone to buying books than I usually am. Getting books in the mail just makes me so very happy – I’m pretty sure most of you can relate.

Business as Usual

Not in the picture: Shadowmarch & Shadowplay
  1. Lair of Dreams (The Diviners, #2) by Libba Bray
    [dt. Die dunklen Schatten der Träume (The Diviners, #2)]

    I only recently read the first novel and did enjoy it very much, although it took me some time to get into it. I hope it won’t take me that long to pick this one up. I’m still a little sad (and mad) that they changed the cover design, but I really like the colours. And it could have been worse. Fortunately, they got rid of the people on the cover.

  2. So schwarz wie Ebenholz (Lumikki, #3) by Salla Simukka
    [ET: As Black as Ebony (The Snow White Trilogy, #3)]

    It’s the last instalment in the Lumikki trilogy, a contemporary Finnish retelling of Snow White. Sort of. Lumikki means Snow White and there are some allusions to the fairy tale, but mostly it’s a thriller. I really enjoyed the first novel and I’m planning on rereading and marathoning this trilogy soon.

  3. Das Blaue im Himmel by Stephanie Letschert & Julia Röhlig (Eds.)
    [LT: The Blue in the Sky]

    This one is an anthology whose theme is the colour blue.

  4. Die Winterprinzessin (Gebrüder Grimm, #1) by Kai Meyer
    [LT: The Winter Princess (Brothers Grimm, #1)]

    Another step closer to completing my Kai Meyer collection.

  5. Wrayth (Book of the Order, #3) by Philippa Ballantine
    [dt. Das zerbrochene Band (Die Runen der Macht, #3)]

    I own but haven’t read the first one in this series. When I saw this very cheap in a second hand shop, I couldn’t help myself.

  6. American Gods (American Gods, #1) by Neil Gaiman
    [dt. American Gods (American Gods, #1)]

    I still haven’t read a single novel by Neil Gaiman. Now at least I do own one.

  7. Shadowmarch (Shadowmarch, #1) by Tad Williams
    [dt. Die Grenze (Shadowmarch, #1)]
  8. Shadowplay (Shadowmarch, #2) by Tad Williams
    [dt. Das Spiel (Shadowmarch, #2)]

    I don’t know how this happened since I thoroughly checked ISBNs, but unfortunately the formats don’t match. I’m just glad they were very cheap so I can go on and buy a replacement when I’m in the mood for it. It’s just really a shame that the German covers are so much more gorgeous. However, they are also more expensive and, well, in German.

Horses – Horses Everywhere

Don’t judge me. Actually, you should be proud of me. I filled my shopping cart on three different occasions this year and always managed to refrain from clicking the check-out button. This time, I just couldn’t. My restraint was exhausted. Unfortunately, this means that my efforts to keep my TBR at bay were all in vain. At least I managed to reduce the growth rate.
