The Sunday Snuggle W33/2018 #TheSundaySnuggle

Hello readers!

I’m back from vacation, and it’s lovely and sunny here in Germany now! Which is great, because when I left it was 35 degrees plus, and I really don’t like the heat. So I’m quite pleased.

Books I got approved for on Netgalley:

The Queen of Crows (The Sacred Throne, #2) 38330781

Here are the books I got in my Scotland trip! The picture isn’t the best, but the books are: The Book of Hidden Things by Francisco Dimitri, The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, Jade City by Fonda Lee, Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve, The War in the Dark by Nick Setchfield, Grace & Fury by Tracy Banghart (although I think this one even made it to one of my Anti-TBR lists?? Oops), How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling (Ravenclaw edition!!), The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien (1991 illustrated edition!!).

Interesting Reads Around the Web

"Have you ever read a book that kept you smiling, laughing, and made you so ridiculously happy? The Hating Game does that. I adore the sizzling chemistry, sharp dialogue, witty banter, and charming leads. Pretty much every scene is gold. This book left me feeling all warm and fluffy and I didn't really want Lucy and Josh's story to end. Can’t wait to see how the movie turns out!"—Cherlynn Ng, FacebookGet it on Amazon for $8.48+, Barnes & Noble for $10.90+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

My Readings These Weeks

33125647

A week and half ago I finished Six Four, which Noriko and I buddy-read. This a very unique crime thriller, very complex in plot and full of details. It’s easy to get lost, so I recommend you read this in few days so you don’t lose track – it’s a really, really good book! 4 stars.

40511582

Then I read The Death and Life of Eleanor Parker while on vacation, which was… really underwhelming. 2 stars.

23437156

Thankfully, after that came Six of Crows to really impress! This is such a cool fantasy heist story and I love every character! I am looking so much forward to the second book. 4 stars!

6493208

I listened to The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, the story of the woman whose cells became immortal. The deep ethical and moral questions will keep you thinking. This story will move you and make you indignant. I highly recommend it even if you don’t normally read nonfiction! 4 stars!

I also advanced in Station Eleven a bit, but I don’t love the story, so I keep changing to another book. It’s interesting, I just can’t seem to be gripped by it or connect to the characters. I’ll try maybe binge-listening so I can really immerse myself in the world.

the poppy war r f kuang

I started then The Poppy War! I’ve been wanting to read this for a long time, so I’m quite excited to read this!

Books I DNF-ed:

31123249 33123864

I’m disappointed for DNF-ing these books, but Tangerine just couldn’t hold my attention and neither could Saints and Misfits. I tried both as audiobooks, which I think might have been the reason. I didn’t like Saints and Misfits’ narration, and generally haven’t been on the mood for YA lately… maybe I’ll pick it up on Kindle later. As for Tangerine, I think this will be a wonderful slow-paced mystery for Summer, but also not for audio. I’ll probably pick it up as a physical book and read it on the beach at some point! (probably not this year…)
