April Wrap-Up

Here it comes, my April Wrap-Up:

1. The Book Thief my Markus Zusak. This book  was on my TBR pile for forever. After so many people raved about it I felt very guilty for not reading it. So I decided to pick it up and give it a try. I actually really liked it and gave it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.

2. The Elite by Kiera Cass. I really loved the first one. And I really loved the second one. I just couldn't put this book down and read it within 4 hours. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

3. The One by Kiera Cass. I just enjoyed it as much as the two other ones. I read it just as fast as the second one. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

4. Selection Stories - The Prince and the Guard. I enjoyed it, just not as much as the other books from this series. I do not think that it is bad, but I just felt like something, which was in the other books, was missing here. I ended up giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

5. Guardian of the gate my Michelle Zink. I really enjoyed it. It took me one evening to finish it because it was that good. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

6. Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink. Just liked it as much as the other two books in this trilogy so I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

7. Matched by Ally Condie. I heard a lot of mixed things about this trilogy but still I did want to pick it up. And it as a really good coice as I really enjoyed it. I ended up giving it 4.75 stars out of 5.

8. Crossed by Ally Condie. As I really enjoyed the first one I wanted to continue on with the story. I ended up giving it 4.5 stars out of 5.

9. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. I loved the movie and just had to pick up the book. I did really enjoy it and gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

10. The New Hunger by Isaac Marion. I enjoyed this one. I am still on the fence about wheater I liked it just as much as Warm Bodies or slightly less. For now I gave it 4.75 out of 5 stars.

11. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. The book is not on the picture because I lend it to a friend. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars, because it is perfect and it is a Cassandra Clare book, so how could you do something diffrent?

I read a total of 11 books this month and really enjoyed all of them.

Lots of Love,

April Book Haul

Hi there,
I am back with another monthly Book Haul.
April is already mostly over and as I do not plan to purchase another book I just thought about putting up the post already.
So here it is, my April Book Haul:

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows by J.K. Rowling. Read this book already a while ago, but I did not have my own copy of it so I purchased it.

2. Guardian of the Gate and Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink, books two and three in the Prophecy of the Sisters Trilogy. I loved the first one and had to get these. I read both of them in one day and really liked them.

3. Love, Rosie by Cecilia Ahern. I read this book when my mom got it as a present and loved it so I had to get my own copy.

4. One Hundred Names by Cecilia Ahern. Haven't read this one yet but I really enjoyed Cecilia Aherns other work so I will get to this one soon.

5. Matched, Crossed and Reached by Ally Condie. I have already read the first two books and really enjoyed them. I will start reading the third one as soon as possible.

6. Goddess of Rose, Warrior Rising, Goddess of Light and Goddess of Spring by P.C. Cast. I haven't read any of those yet, but as I am really interested in Greek Mythology I hopefully will enjoy them when I finally get around to reading them.

7. The Elite, The One and Selection Stories - The Prince and the Guardian by Kiera Cass. I read them all in one day. Do I have to say more about how much I love this series? I don't think so.

8. House of Night 6: Tempted and House of Night 8: Awaken by P.C. and Kristin Cast. I finally have all the books up to the 10th one. Which means I can finally continue on with the series. Haven't actually done that yet. I am still re-reading the third book.

9. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand. I have heard a lot of positive things about this trilogy. I really want to read it. But I accidentally picked up the second and not the first book. So haven't read this one yet.

10. Warm Bodies and The New Hunger - Warm Bodies Prequel by Isaac Marion. I have watched the movie over and over again and just had to get the book. Read both of them and really enjoyed them.

So, this month I bought a total of 20 books and already read 11 of them. So only 9 unread books this month.

Lots of Love,

My TBR Pile(s)

I actually do have two TBR piles because one of them is at my parents house while the other one is at my dorm room.
I will show you some pictures of my TBR piles and the name of the books but won't go into to much detail about it because there are simply to many books and this post would go one forever.

TBR Pile at my parents house:

This is the TBR Pile at my parents house.

1. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.
2. Lady Chatterley by D.H. Lawrence
3. Les Vampires Argenau ny Lynsay Sands -  a French book.
4. hush, hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.
5. The first four books in the Artemis Fowl Series by Eoin Colfer.
6. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux.

On this picture you can still see The Book Thief by Macus Zusak. Since this picture was taken I read the book, but as I wasn't at my parents house any longer but back at my dorm room I wasn't able to take a new picture.

The TBR pile at my parents house includes a total of 9 books.

11. Schattenblüte by Nora Melling (which is only avaiable in German)
12. The Host by Stephanie Meyer.
13. Awaken at Dawn by C.C. Hunter
14. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand.
15. pretty by Scott Westerfield.
16. The White Princess by Phillipa Gregory
17. Sense and Sensebility by Joanna Trollope.
18. Torment, Passion, Rapture and Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate.
19. Appollo's Angels by Jennifer Homans.
20. Bunheads by Sophie Flack.
21. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
22. Pretty Little Things by Jillian Hoffman.
23. Perfum. The Story of a murderer by Patrick Süskind.
24. Hamlet by William Shakespeare.
25. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - which I actually started but have not finished yet.
26. One hundred Names by Cecilia Ahern.

If I haven't counted wrong this TBR pile holds 39 books.

My total amount of unread books therefore is 47 books.
It is actually less than I expected but still I think I should cut it down as fast as possible.

So, how big is your TBR pile?

Lots of Love,

Book Haul Janurary/Feburary/March

There will be a lots of books in this book haul as there are three months to be covered. I think I will switch to on book haul every month as I then will have the possibility to get into a little more detail about the books.

But for this time I will just tell yout the title, the author and wheater I already read it or not as otherwise this post would be way to long.

So lets geht started :)


1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling. I read this book already a while ago and just purchased it now.

2. A modern Witch by Debora Geary. I read this book and really enjoyed it.

3. The 7th, 9th and 10th book in the House of Night Series by P.C. and Kristin Cast. I did not read them as I still need to get and read the 6th one before I can go on. The 7th one is called Burned, the 9th Destined and the 10th Hidden.

4. Goddess of Love by P.C. Cast. Over here in Germany it is sold as the first book in a series, but in the origianal published series it is the fifth one. Still a little confused wheater I should start with it or not, so I haven't read it.

5. Awake at Dawn by C.C. Hunter. I really wanted to start this series and did get this one quite cheap. Then I found out, that it is the second and not the first one in the series. Haven't rea it as I still ned to get my hands on the first one.

6. The Host by Stephanie Meyer. I heard that this one should be way better than the twilight series and as I did not completly hated the twilight series I thought I could pick up this one. Still haven't started it as I will wait until I have a little more time because it is simply huge.

7. Forsaken by Jana Oliver. Haven't read it yet. Picked it up in a wim. Sounds interesting so I will hopefully start to read it soon.

8. The White Princess by Philippa Gregory. Watched the series "The White Queen" on TV and loved it, so I really wanted to start reading the series. Still confused with which book to start, so I haven't read it so far.

I purchased a total of 10 books for myself in Janurary. Most of them where quite cheap, so I could actually afford all of them.
8 of those books are actually still unread.


In Feburary I visited London with my mum, so I bought some books there.

1. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I loved the Mortal Instruments Series as far as I had read it then (which was up to the fifth book at this time) and really wanted to pick this trilogy up. Haven't read it yet, but started it. Unfortunally I'm in a reading slump and just can't get myself to go on with it,

2. City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. Read it and loved it.Just after finishing it I heard that it would be better o read the Infernal Devices beforehand.

3. The Ruby Red Trilogy by Kiersten Gier. I read this one about two years ago. In Janurary I started re-reading it. I just had finished the second book when I walked past this little beauty and I just had to have it on my shelfs.

4. The Prophecy of the Sisters. I read it and really enjoyed it. I want to continue wth the story as soon as possible.

5. Allegiant by Veronica Roth. It just then came out as paperback in Germany. Read it like two days after buying it. I liked it, but enjoyed the first one way more.

6. Schattenblüte by Nora Melling. This is actually just available in German. Bought it on a wim but it sounds quite interesting. So haven't read it yet.

7. Sense and Sensebility by Joanna Tollope. I really enjoy Jane Austens Story so I thought I would pick up this one and maybe enjoy it as well. I haven't read it yet.

8. A Chalice of Wind by Cate Tiernan. I heard a lots of great things about it and really wanted to pick the series up. Found this one at my local bookstore for quite cheap and bought it. Haven'T read it yet.

9. Pride and Prejudice. I don'T know why but I didn't had ac copy of this one, even though I wanted to read it for a really long time. I did start reading it, but haven't finished yet.

In Feburary I bought a total of 11 books, of which just 5 are unread.


1. The Selection by Kiera Cass. As I already said in my review: I read this book within 4 houres and loved it.

2. Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince and Quidditch trough the Ages by J.K. Rowling. Rad both of them a while ago, just did not have them on my shelf.

3. Ther Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. I have read the Hobbit but not The Lord of the Rings. Found them on a fleemarket and bought them so I could read them as soon as somehow possible.

4. Pretty by Scoot Westerfield. I really wanted to pick up the series, but I still miss the first one, so this book has to wait until I get the first one to read.

In March I bought a total of 8 books of which 4 are still unread.

All in all I bought 29 books, read 12 of them and still have to read 17 of them. Some of them I just can't start as I do miss the book I have to read beforehand.

I will do another book haul post at the end of April.

And sorry for being inactive for so long, I had a lots of things going on and just did not find the time to f.e. take the pictures needed or just to sit down and write a post.

Lots of Love,
