Besser wie erwartet
Goodbye Beziehungsstress: Eine Anleitung... Goodbye Beziehungsstress: Eine Anleitung zum gl├╝cklichen Zusammensein - Elena-Katharina Sohn

Der erste Eindruck von dem Buch war "noch so ein typischer Ratgeber" - da dieses Buch nur eine eher geringere Seitenanzahl hat und eine kompakte Größe, habe ich mir eigentlich inhaltlich nicht wirklich viel "neues" erwartet.

Aber ich wurde definitiv positiv überrascht. Schon beim Auspacken - das Buch hat ein tolles und ansprechendes Design.
Das Inhaltsverzeichnis ist sehr interessant aufgebaut und man bekommt gleich Lust, hineinzulesen.

Ich finde den Schreibstil in diesem Buch klasse - meiner Meinung nach hebt sich dieser von anderen Ratgebern ab, da er nicht so typisch "sachlich" ist, sondern er wirkt auf mich "persönlich" - man fliegt nur so über die Seiten.
Verschiedene Paarsituationen, werden geschildert - nicht selten erkennt man sich in diesen absolut wieder. Es gibt auch Tests die man selber durchführen kann.
Darauf folgen "Übungen"/Anleitungen, um an sich zu arbeiten.

Von mir gibt es eine klare Empfehlung für dieses Buch.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Fighting Faete (Beyond The Veil #5) by Elena Kincaid; Maia Dylan; Sarah Marsh
Fighting Faete (Beyond The Veil #5) - Elena Kincaid,Sarah Marsh,Maia Dylan
 
Fighting Faete is the fifth book in the Beyond The Veil series, and this series shows no signs of slacking. Each story is wonderful as a standalone, but together, they are brilliant. Kat is the Beta, and as such she knows very few men that are more dominant than her, and even less that she would like to mate with. She pits herself against bigger, tougher opponents, just to see if she will find someone more dominant. What she doesn't know is she already has her mates, and they are JUST as dominant. Kat needs to figure out how to have a relationship WITH them, and they need to figure out how to deal with someone as strong and sassy as Kat is.
 
This story is a welcome addition to the series. I've wanted Kat's story ever since she ran from Aeron and Alak. Before they get together is laugh out loud funny, but once they get together, the sparks fly even more. Well written, and with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, Fighting Faete is an action-packed story, with highs and lows and surprises. The pacing is smooth, with no jarring at any time. A great addition to the series, and highly recommended by me.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Arctic Spirit (Arctic Ice, #1) by Elena Kincaid
Arctic Spirit - Elena Kincaid
Arctic Spirit is the first book in a new series by Elena Kincaid. We start off with Charlotte. Her father was in the air force and one of the best moves he made was when he was stationed in Alaska. Why? Because Charlotte meets Drew and Chris, two brothers and her best friends. The day she has to leave them is the day that broke her heart. She does it though, knowing it is better this way as she would never be able to choose between them. They let her go, in pain as well, but knowing a secret that stops them from asking her to stay. As they are shifters, they have a fated mate out there, and it wouldn't be fair on Charlotte, or their mate, if they had to choose between them. The years pass by, and Charlotte agrees to meet up with them again. Things turn out differently to how she expected, and the story really gets going.
 
This was a brilliant way to begin. You have fated mates, a lovely ménage, jealousy, danger, humour - trust me, it's all here. The pacing of the story was smooth, and the scenes were delightfully descriptive. With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this book flew by as I was totally engrossed from start to finish. Can't wait for the next book. Absolutely recommended by me.

Suspend your disbelief for this wild novel about a girl with healing powers who kickstarts the apocalypse; also takes on topics like suicide and bullying
The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza - Shaun David Hutchinson

I wanted to read this crazy book from the moment I read the synopsis, and a kind soul surprised me with a pre-order of it.
It’s the sort of book that you’ll either be stoked, like me, when you get your hands on it, or one that you will steer clear of because it’s way too outlandish. And that’s because if you fully intend to immerse yourself in a book where a young girl called Elena Mendoza exists because she is the product of a virgin birth (parthenogenesis), it means suspending your disbelief (a lot), but not reading if you are prone to seeing that very premise alone as blasphemous.

The concept of the book becomes even more interesting after Elena realizes she has the gift of healing people, but she discovers this only after her crush, Freddie, is shot outside the Starbucks she works at. Big problem with this though: innocent people are ‘raptured’ every time Elena heals someone, and the number grows the longer she does it, and she has inanimate objects telling her she must do these healings. Not to mention that this all kicked off the apocalypse.
There’s so much else in here other than this wild story though, that will have the reader thinking all the way through. Having the main character as a bisexual girl of Cuban descent (kudos to Hutchinson) struggling with the ‘voices’, dealing with bullies, and her feelings toward her crush (who honestly isn’t very nice to her), there are a whole host of teenage issues even without the impending apocalypse and feeling like an outcast because she’s a product of a virgin birth. There are also lots of other things brought up such as grief, suicide, gun use, and ultimately the fate of the world becomes the final big conversation.

It’s hard not to read this and not have yourself thinking about how Elena is ‘playing God’ and also about how the world might end. So you can read this and think about how silly it is that Elena is hearing a voice coming from the siren on the Starbucks cup, but you can also appreciate that there are some big questions and topics that Hutchinson is tackling within this wonderful, thought-provoking novel. Sometimes you have to tackle the big subjects within these parameters because otherwise they’re even more overwhelming!
My only major issues with the book were with some passages that seemed to drag that made pacing odd, and a little bit of preachiness at the end. Overall though, this is a wonderfully-written, decidedly different and fun YA novel. A unique read!

The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza
The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza - Shaun David Hutchinson
This was an interesting novel, one that I couldn’t put down once I started it. I needed to know what happened in the end and what was that path that the characters walked on to get there? As the main character was fixated on one central aspect of the equation, I was looking for all the other key components to see how everything else fit together.
 
Elena has always known that she was a bit special. It began with her virgin birth and continued on when the sirens began talking to her when she was little. One day while working at Starbucks a girl is shot. Luckily Elena is on break and witnesses the shooting. A siren, the mermaid Starbuck logo, summons for Elena to heal the girl. Confused, Elena doesn’t know anything about healing and confronts the siren. The siren explains to Elena how to touch the girl. Apprehensively, Elena lays her hands on the dying girl and Elena feels something within her as the dying girl slowly begins to awaken. Elena speaks to the victim and she explains how the shooter has vanished. Elena has now created a new name for herself, one she cannot explain and one that she is not sure she wants. Each life that she saves, must come with a price and these prices are ones that she has no control over.
 
This novel fascinated me yet it also made me think about life and the options that we have. Elena had individuals approaching her constantly asking her to heal a sick loved one and Elena had to consider the price for that one life. It becomes overwhelming at times for her while the sirens are yelling at her to do her part for humanity. I thought the conversation that Freddie and Elena have over an individual’s existence speaks volumes. I felt sorry for Freddie but I am glad that Elena became a part of her life. Not a novel that everyone will enjoy but one that put a spark in me.
