Stacking The Shelves #7

Saturday, May 21, 2016


is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!





At first I was told it would be delivered on May 13, 2016. Then, it was at the end of the first week of May, I could see that the book was on its way according to the green balk in my account. Expected delivery: May 13 – a FRIDAY!
Okay I thought; I am no friend of that date, but hey I wrote one of my most important exams on a Friday the 13th and all went perfectly well. So I kind of calmed down and couldn´t wait to hold it in my hands.
Then Friday May 13th dawned, I had painter in the house and a lot of other things going on, but it came no text that my book had arrived at the local post office, where it was supposed to be delivered to. Instead I found in my customer account the info, that the approximately new delivery date would be June 23, 2016 – no reason was to find there why that had changed. So I called and asked why I had to wait because I saw that they had it in stock. I got the answer that they had no clue what had happened. But they would go back to me as soon as they would have an answer, but it could take a few days.

Then silence. Nothing happened.

Till two days ago when I received an e-maill that my book was on its way. On Thursday 19th, I could finally pick it up at the post office and since then I am literally dancing in my living room.

And that is one of the reasons why I put a private picture of it in this post here, instead of the official cover picture I usually use. 



My bought books





Feyre survived Amarantha´s clutches to return to the Spring Court - but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can´t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin´s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms - and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured sould, and decide how she wishes to shape her future - and the future of a world torn apart.




Reviewer´s copy

Sternenwald by Julie Heiland





This book is currently only available in the German language. I already read it, but due to some publisher rules I am not allowed to publish my review about it until its expected release date on May 25, 2016.
