Newbies Sepember 2017

Remember that I told you about my book buying yo-yo effect? Remember that I only got four books in August? Well, here’s the other side of the story … I got kind of totally crazy. I went thrifting, ordered way too many books online, got some at work, and decided to double the amount of horse non-fiction I own.

Review: Clara und das Glück dieser Erde (Clara, #1)

I’m not sure of what I’d heard first: the book or the ZDF Christmas series from the same year. I still haven’t seen the series and right now, I’m not so sure if I still want to. I probably will if I get my hands on it one day, but the book really put me off for the time being. Gah, and I had my hopes up!

Wrap-Up September 2017

The first week of September, I was off of work. Therefore, I expected to get a lot more reading done than I actually did in the end. Spending a lot of time at the stables really doesn’t help with reading, but it was nice to be able to ride every day for almost two weeks. […]

SuBsalabim October 2017

October, November, and December – that’s my favourite quarter of the year, so I made a special list of autumnal and wintry titles for my friends to choose from. The resulting October reads: lost children, time travellers, an Irish princess, a girl that accompanied my teens, and Norse Gods …

This year, however, I’m alternating between months in which I buy next to no books and months in which I buy all the books. I’m kind of challenging myself to go as long without buying books as I can, but when I reach that point I can no longer stand not getting books, it escalates very quickly. Who would have thought the yo-yo effect also affects book buying behaviour?! August was one of the former, which is why I only have four books to show you, each a different format …

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 …
