Reading progress update.
Verliebe dich nie in einen Rockstar - Teresa Sporrer
Tödliche Weihnachten. - Gabriela Schönberger-Klar,Charlotte MacLeod
Hydra - Laura Labas
House of Night 1: Gezeichnet - P.C. Cast,Kristin Cast,Marie Bierstedt

Juten Tach ihr Lieben! 

 

Ich wollte einfach 'mal wieder ein kleines Leseupdate machen und die ersten Eindrücke zu ein paar Büchern geben, die ich gerade lese oder zumindest sagen, warum ich sie lese :P 

 

Fangen wir 'mal mit "Verliebe dich nie in einen Rockstar" von Teresa Sporrer an. 
Nachdem ich auf Goodreads geschrieben hatte - wie hier auch - dass ich doch bitte endlich ein Buch lesen möchte, dessen Hauptcharakterin auch 'mal zu ihrer großen Klappe steht, bat mich die Autorin doch 'mal ihr Buch als nächstes zu lesen, weil sie auf die Meinung gespannt wäre. Tja, und da konnte ich einfach nicht nein sagen, weil ich das Buch eh 'mal langsam anfangen wollte und auf meinem SuB stehen hatte :D

Ich tue mich ja immer etwas schwer mit beschriebener Musik in Büchern, aber nachdem ich den Prolog überstanden hatte ... gefielen mir zumindest die nächsten Seiten, die ich gelesen habe.Hier befinde ich mich auf Seite 16 von 232.

 

"Tödliche Weihnachten - 15 Weihnachtskrimis versammelt von Charlotte MacLeod", wäre das zweite Buch das ich gerade lese und ... na ja. Es ist ein Auf und Ab mit diesen Geschichten. Bisher konnte ich mich nur ein Krimi überzeugen und das war eigentlich mehr eine Geistergeschichte als alles andere. Es sind für mich einfach keine wirklichen Weihnachtskrimis, weil sie höchstens zwei Tage vor dem Fest spielen und nicht wirklich Todesfälle beinhalten, sowie irgendetwas was mit diesem Genre zu tun haben könnte. Na ja, zum Glück ist jede Geschichte von einem anderen Autor und wer weiß, was da noch so auf mich zukommt mit den elf anderen Storys. Hier befinde ich mich auf Seite 101 von 318.

 

"House of Night: Gezeichnet" von P.C. Cast und Kristin Cast ist mehr ein ReRead, weil ich irgendwie Lust drauf bekommen habe endlich wieder an der Reihe weiterzulesen, als ich vor einigen Jahren Band 5 abgebrochen hatte, aber ich wollte nicht einfach so weitermachen - dafür weiß ich leider zu wenig noch von der Geschichte. (Ich habe aber nicht vergessen was für ein Männerverschleiß Zoey hatte bis zum 5. Band xD) Na ja, und da es die Hörbücher bei Spotify gibt und ich mir das Lesen nicht wirklich antun wollte ... es ist einfach etwas gutes - *hust* ;) - für nebenbei. Hier habe ich schon 24% gehört von 100.

 

Und kommen wir jetzt zu "Die Unwandelbaren: Hydra" von Laura Labas. Laura hat auf ihrer Facebook-Seite (Laura Labas Autorin-Seite) ein Bild gepostet, dass sie sich zu Weihnachten ein paar Rezensionen zu ihren Büchern wünscht und da ich seit August 2014 schon immer wieder davon rede ihr Buchreihe weiterzulesen ... ich habe ein schlechtes Gewissen bekommen und musste jetzt wirklich endlich mal (wieder) zu ihrem Buch greifen, um es zu lesen. Tja, und was soll ich sagen ... nach 20 Seiten bin ich schon wieder total im Fangirl-Modus. (Und das nur, weil Reyna versucht nicht an Cadan zu denken.) 

 

Tja, so sieht es bei mir momentan aus ... und bei euch? Was lest ihr gerade? :) 

Mich interessieren ja immer so die ersten Eindrücke und dann die End-Meinung, denn manchmal ändern sie sich ja total oder bewahrheiten sich. 

 

Eine schöne Adventszeit wünsche ich euch! <3

P.C. Cast, The R Word and That Big Hole She Keeps Digging.

"Ableism should be stamped out of our culture. There's no excuse for using a term like the R word to shame someone. Yes, the meanings of words change but the R word has not changed meanings. No matter how many times you try to justify your use of the word, claiming you didn't mean to be offensive or ableist so it doesn't count, or crying censorship when you're asked not to use it, that word is still a disgusting slur against the disabled.

 

...

 

If P.C. Cast is too immature and selfish to understand the hurt she causes with use of the R word (and "fucktard" because the suffix -tard clearly has the same implications), she really shouldn't be writing. Her editors need to step in and tell her to get a grip."

Review: Marked by PC Cast
Marked - P.C. Cast,Kristin Cast

I attempted to colour my own hair for the first time ever recently. I'm 24 years old and have never coloured my own hair! Never! I always, religiously go to the salon and berate anyone who tells me they use home hair dye kits. It'll go horribly wrong, I warn. Do you want green hair?!! Well, I've fallen on hard times lately. I have a menagerie of five creatures to feed and recently made an ill advised spur-of-the-moment purchase to the sum of an eye watering £4,500 so I was forced to break my own rule and decided that spending £80 at the salon was no longer a priority. Needless to say, it was a disaster .... Picture my bathroom following my adventure covered, and I mean covered in purple hair colour. It was on the walls, it was on the floor, it was all over the "old t-shirt" I was advised in the instructions to use (I wish they had also advised me to use an old bathroom ....) which conveniently belongs to my other half ( and which I promptly hid afterwards). It was even on my dog. Don't even ask me how that happened as she wasn't even in there at the time.

 

So after creating the biggest mess ever, of which it would probably have been easier just to burn the apartment down and start again rather than attempt to clean it up, you're probably guessing that my hair looked fabulous and I strolled off into the sunset, swishing my glossy, evenly coloured locks in the golden sunlight, smiling smugly to myself and winking at passers-by admiring glances, right? Wrong! I have purple roots, black tips and a weird light red patch on the right which is inexplicable plus the shaved patch which I have on the left is now my natural colour because I made the rookie mistake of re-shaving it after I coloured it rather than before .... All in all the whole thing was a disaster and I have taken to wearing a (cute) wooly hat despite the fact that it is almost May. Oh well! We live and learn!

 

Why am I sharing this with you? To illustrate the point that we all make mistakes. I made the mistake of colouring my hair at home and I made the mistake of reading Marked. And the Cast girls made the mistake of writing the damn thing in the first place and wasting all our time.

After Moonrise - P.C. Cast,Gena Showalter I was sent this by the lovely people at Harlequin Australia, and I didn’t realise it had two stories in it until I started reading it (I don’t read blurbs – they ruin the story for me). They are both centred around After Midnight, a paranormal detective agency that helps people contact the dead, solve murders and bring peace to relatives. I seem to be in the minority in that I liked the first story, Possessed, more than the second, longer story, Haunted.In Possessed, Raef manages to have … relations … with a ghost, and it was pretty disturbing, especially when she inhabited her twin’s body to achieve this. Although, it was pretty clear where the story was going the first time Tracking positive emotions was mentioned. On the other hand, Haunted didn’t have the weird love scenes in it, but I was disappointed at how quickly Harper and Levi fell in love, although it was explained later on in the book.Oh, and in Haunted, the phrase ‘giant man-hands’ was used. Yeah.While both stories are essentially murder mysteries, I liked the one in Haunted more than the one in Possessed. Levi and Harper had to work hard to figure out the truth behind their blackouts and the strange things that happened around them. Possessed had a less compelling plot line, but the story was made interesting because of Raef and the powers he used to solve the case. It is very much a character driven story, while Haunted is plot driven, which probably explains why I liked Possessed a little better.I think After Midnight will be great for readers who want to try a little of Gena Showalter’s or P. C. Cast’s work without committing themselves to their long series’ of books. Although I didn’t enjoy Haunted enough to want to try P. C. Cast’s books, reading Possessed has made me realise I may like Gena Showalter’s adult books more than I did her YA novel, Alice in Zombieland.A copy of this book was provided by the publisher for review.You can read more of my reviews at Speculating on SpecFic.

After Moonrise - P.C. Cast,Gena Showalter After Moonrise consists of two short stories by two great authors. This combination makes After Moorise a must read for any paranormal romance fan. It would also be a great starting point for anyone new to the genre.

Possessed by P.C. Cast:

Possessed is a fast paced story, making it perfect for a quick read. Enjoyable although perhaps a little predictable, with an unusual and unique ending Possessed is easy to read. Overall a well written tale.

Haunted by Gena Showalter:

I have not read a lot of Gena Showalter, but what I have read certainly does not disappoint, and this story is no exception. Mysterious and raunchy Haunted was a delight to read and I found myself savoring every paragraph. Full of twists and intrigue, Haunted was a great read.
