Waiting On Wednesday #39 – Quests For Glory by Soman Chainani

Wednesday, March 22, 2017
is a weekly event hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

I wasn´t sure if I would have a book to name for this meme since most of the books I am waiting for are coming out later in the year or don´t have a cover published yet.

And to be honest, I don´t like to share an upcoming book with you if I can´t provide you the cover for it.

I Want To Hold Your Hand by Marie Force

This series is such a lovely, heartwarming and wonderful written series, that you can´t do anything else but to love those books. If you are in for some romance mixed with the great landscape of the Vermont Mountains and a bit of reality, then this is what you want to read.

Almost seven years after losing her husband in Iraq, Hannah Abbott Guthrie isn´t sure she´s ready – or able – to move on, but the attentions of a lifelong friend are making her think about it for the first time. The memory of the sweet kiss she shared with Nolan Roberts hasn´t strayed far from her thoughts, but she also fears that pursuing something with him would mean betraying her husband´s memory. Nolan has loved Hannah for years, but he´d been giving her the space she needed to heal from her devastating loss. Now, when an opportunity arises to show her how he feels, Nolan can´t resist, but he knows earning her love will take more than a kiss. Somehow he has to prove to Hannah that finding love twice in a lifetime is possible – and well worth risking her heart.

My Review

Despite all the romance, hot scenes and the appearance of some characters from the first book, this book contains a story that is a bit darker in tone and figures.

Weekly Book Wrap-Up #48

Saturday, March 18, 2017
In my weekly book wrap-up, I share with you the new books that have arrived at my place. No matter if I won a giveaway or got approved for a reviewer´s copy, got an ARC or just bought a new one.

And I will tell you a bit about the how and why I added them to my shelves and why I wanted them in the first place.

Weekly Book Wrap-Up is a combination where I link up with Tynga and Kimberly and their blogs.

Carlotta – Internat Und Schneegestöber by Dagmar Hoßfeld

This is a fantastic series for young kids with a great main figure. The book is a special edition for all the Carlotta fans before the newest book will come out in the fall of 2017. An English title could sound like this: Carlotta – Boarding school and snowstorm.

The Theater AG is rehearsing Charles Dickens´ A Christmas Carol at Castle Prinzensee. The joy is immense when Carlotta learns that Sofie will give a concert with the orchestra of her Belgian boarding school at the castle. But suddenly the temperatures slip into the cellar. It starts to snow and just doesn´t stop. The roads are blocked because of snow drifts. The castle is closed off. Nobody can get in, no one comes out. And now?

My Review

I love this series. There is a lot of heart, friendship and warmth in it and the setting is a beautiful old castle.

Follow Friday #15 – Novel Characters

Friday, March 17, 2017
This is a Friday meme hosted by Patricia of FiktiveWelten. Every week she asks a question that you can answer. Everyone who would like to participate, just answer her question, link to her blog and write a comment under her post to let the others know that you are participating.

The entire rules you can find here.

Since Patricia is hosting the Follow Friday I knew from her that she was open to any ideas for new questions in this meme. But I never had one I thought was worth being asked.

A little while ago it kind of hit me and I sent her my ideas and she accepted them! How great is that?!

To Know Her Is To Love Her by Marie Force

For some reasons this story is not included in the German edition of the first book of this series and as far as I know the other novellas of this series won´t be either. In my eyes not a smart choice.

Cameron is back in New York – but only to say goodbye. Her dream comes true: She will move to Vermont to move in with Will and become a part of his big, loving and caring Family. But before that happens she wants to show Will the big city and all the places she loves. But most of all she wants Will to meet her father and her friends. Only one question remains: Is Will really coming and can she really move and leave everything behind?

My Review

This novella is about what happens when a relationship kind of moves on and the two involved parties have to find a way how to live together.

Upcoming New Releases March

Thursday, March 16, 2017
Most of the books I am displaying here are books I am looking very much forward to their release day.
Some of them I already pre-ordered, others I started a request for and some I already have in my bookshelves since the month of March is by now a few days old.
It can be that you will see some titles in my list that are already being published abroad but will hit the German bookstores only by now; or the other way around.

I don´t know which of them I will be really able to read this month or over the year in general - not to mention buying them or getting them as a reviewer´s copy – but I will try to get to know as many as I can.

Carrier Of The Mark by Leigh Fallon

This cover! Soooo beautiful and it made me want this book from the moment I saw it. And with the summary and the fact that this would play in Ireland, it was even more intriguing. So it landed at my home and despite the fact that I read it a few years ago, this review had to be written.

My Review

A novel about druids, a Celtic goddess and the elements of the earth: can it get any better than that?
