So, May in Germany is basically a month where you don’t really go to work a lot. This week we had Thursday and Friday off at my workplace, and of course I took the time to read a little! I have 23 books from Netgalley and 15 from Edelweiss… plus the books I bought myself, that is, which I have lost count of. So I definitely needed the extra time to attempt to catch up.
I am still on a book ban, which failed this week. But those books look amazing, so no regrets:
I read the Bernard Cornwell’s Winter King trilogy back when I was a teen and I loved it, but his books tend to be too similar to each other, so I haven’t quite read anything since. But this one is about William Shakespeare’s brother and sounds so cool and intriguing! Also, I love the title, Fools and Mortals.
Neverworld Wake is from the author of Night Film, so it was an auto-buy for me.
The Anne Frank book is the illustrated version, so I risked getting the German edition. I need to practice German anyway, plus it would be truer to the original.
I was disappointed they didn’t have Exile (from The Extinction Trials), but my bookstore is very limited in its English books, so it wasn’t a surprise… BUT THEN. The next day it was there!
I also received this book for reviewing, and I am so excited to read it:
Also, Riveted has a bunch of really cool books for free this month!! I’ll read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe! If there’s time I might read The Unexpected Everything… thoughts?
AND LASTLY, BUT NOT LEAST…
Victoria @ Wanderer’s Pen has a “So Your Character Is…” series which aims to break stereotypes, and she invited Thai @ Read Breathe Repeat and me to write about Brazil!! The post turned out awesome and I’d love it if you guys read it! There are also many other posts from her series posted which are such a great read!
So your character is from Brazil
