The Wolf Siren
The Wolf Siren - Karen Whiddon

Lilly has been held captive and tortured for 15 years. Thought dead by her twin brother Lucas, she is rescued by him and The Pack (in The Lost Wolf's Destiny). Turns out there are some of the group that escaped and are free and are after Lilly. Kane, one of The Pack's Protector's, is assigned as her bodyguard.
I thought Lilly started out very meek, scared at her own shadow at first. I liked how she gradually got stronger and more self confident. I liked how she was able to save herself and didn't require rescuing. I was pleasantly surprised!
One thing that I thought was strange was how Kane was surprised more than once by the approach of someone. As a wolf shifter, I would have thought he had enhanced hearing and would have heard.

äußerst interessant
Stern des Nordens - D.B. John,Sabine Län... Stern des Nordens - D.B. John,Sabine Längsfeld,Karen Witthuhn

Ein ergreifender Roman basierend auf wahren Begebenheiten, was das ganze nochmal so interessant für mich macht und richtig unter die Haut geht.

Der Prolog startet gleich äußert interessant: in Korea verschwindet ein junges Mädchen(Soo-min Williams).
In der eigentlichen Story gibt es drei Protagonisten und drei Handlungsstränge. Der Autor schafft es, diese drei Personen und ihre Geschichten miteinander zu verwickeln und zusammenzuführen.

Was ich beim Lesen auch äußerst positiv empfand - mehr über Nordkorea zu erfahren - ein Land, über das ich eigentlich sehr wenig weiß. Das war nur ein positiver Nebeneffekt dieser interessanten und äußerst spannenden Geschichte. Zum Ende hin wird das Buch auch sehr Action reich - vielleicht fast eine Spur zu viel für meinen Geschmack, aber im Großen und ganzen hat das Ende auch hervorragend gepasst. Insbesondere die drei Erzählstränge machen das Buch besonders interessant für mich.

Let Them Be: "Letters of Sylvia Plath, Volume 1: 1940-1956" by Sylvia Plath
Letters of Sylvia Plath: Volume 1 - Sylvia Plath,Karen Kukil,Peter K. Steinberg


“My biggest trouble is that people look at me and think that no serious trouble has ever troubled my little head. They seldom realize the chaos that seethes behind my exterior. As for the who Am I, what am I angle...that will preoccupy me till the day I die.”


In "Letters of Sylvia Plath, Volume 1: 1940-1956" by Sylvia Plath



Prior to the publication of the second volume in October 2018, I finally finished reading this mammoth of a book. And I didn't feel too good reading it for reasons too complex to delve into here. I'm not sure I'm up to the task of tackling the 2nd volume to be honest. It's rather depressing reading. That's why it took me almost two months...

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-10-27 03:22
Book Review One of us is lying Karen M Mcmanus
One of Us Is Lying - Karen M. McManus

August 2-sep 10

The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide. 
Pay close attention and you might solve this.
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule. 
Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess. 
Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High's notorious gossip app. 
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention, Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn't an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he'd planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who's still on the loose? 
Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them


Review : I really loved this book so this is about
Bronwyn , Addy , cooper and Nate who after one event are connected to each other . They all have detention and the school gossip of the school is also there but he ends up dying cause of a peanut allergy and they are all suspects cause Simon wrote a gossip blog and there secrets starts coming out . Bronwyn cheated on a test addy cheated on her boyfriend who is a dick by the way cooper is gay and Nate sells drugs . Bronwyn and Nate start getting close but then Nate gets sent to jail and bronwyn helps Nate prove his innocence. Cause Simon wanted to die so he planned to make it look like murder when it was actually suicide and Jake addy's ex boyfriend helped and actually tried to kill addy but cooper helped and Jake got sent to jail . Really enjoyed this book.



Quote
“She's a princess and you're a jock," he says. He thrusts his chin toward Bronwyn, then at Nate. "And you're a brain. And you're a criminal. You're all walking teen-movie stereotypes.”

Leaves of Grass: First and "Death-Bed" Editions
Leaves of Grass: First and "Death-Bed" Editions (Barnes & Noble Classics) - Karen Karbiener,Walt Whitman

Leaves of Grass: First and “Death-Bed” Editions contains best known work of American poet Walt Whitman as well as additional poems that he published before his breakthrough work and that he didn’t include in his final publication.  Containing hundreds of poems from the “father of free verse”, the reader gets a essentially a full view of Whitman’s career from beginning to end.  In additional each new section of the book has an introduction by Dr. Karen Karbiener who also wrote the Notes at the end of the book giving the reader a better understanding of the essence surrounding Whitman’s work.  Though many Whitman loves will enjoy this book, for some like myself this turned out to be too much of something that it turns out I didn’t like after all.
