June was a great month. We took advantage of the summer weather by reading on the balcony, taking walks in the park, eating lots of ice cream and even went on a little vacation. We did end up increasing our (well, Sebastian’s) TBR, but at least we kept up with blog posts!

Keine Spur vom Sommerloch, zumindest was die Krimi- und Thriller-Neuerscheinungen im Juli betrifft! Diesen Monat dürfen sich Freunde der Spannungsliteratur zum Beispiel auf neuen Lesestoff vom deutschen Bestsellerautor Andreas Winkelmann (wenn auch unter Pseudonym) freuen, Ethan Cross versucht sich neben seiner Francis-Ackerman-junior-Reihe an einer weiteren Serie, Linda Castillo lässt ihre Heldin Kate Burkholder wieder einmal […]

Picking favorites is always hard for bookworms, and this list was no exception. Maraia had too many choices, Sebastian too few. To make it easier, we started with our five mutual favorites and then each picked another five personal favorites. This list was challenging enough, so we can only imagine how much fun it will […]

May was an even better reading month for us than April, in terms of both quantity and quality. We only acquired eight new books between the two of us, three of which were gifts, so our TBR pile decreased once again. We also started writing Top Ten Tuesday posts again, which are always fun. Despite […]

April was a very successful reading month since I not only managed to finish ten books but also only got three new ones which means that I reduced my TBR pile by seven books – wooohooo! I’m really proud of resisting to buy any books at all in April – besides my two monthly audiobook […]

Draußen wird es (hoffentlich) langsam wärmer, sodass endlich wieder lange Lesetage auf dem Balkon oder im Garten auf der Tagesordnung stehen können. Passend dazu erscheinen auch im Mai wieder einige heiße Neuerscheinungen, die auf einen spannenden und gruseligen Frühling hoffen lassen.

When I look at the number of books I’ve read last month I can’t help feeling like I’ve failed a little bit when it comes to reading and listening to audiobooks but looking at page numbers and minutes March wasn’t actually that bad. Four out of the six books I’ve finished were quite massive and […]

Der April mag in Hinsicht auf die großen Namen vielleicht nicht ganz so spektakulär ausfallen wie der März, trotzdem dürfen sich Krimi- und Thrillerfans auch in diesem Monat wieder auf einige Highlights freuen. So gibt es z.B. endlich wieder etwas neues von John Katzenbach, Kristina Ohlsson startet eine neue Krimi-Dilogie und einer der heißesten Thriller […]

I’m pretty sure it doesn’t really look as if I’m successfully restraining myself from buying a lot of book this year but the truth is that I’ve only bought four physical books by myself in the first two months of 2017 which I’m actually a little bit proud of. „Unfortunately“ my TBR isn’t really getting any […]

This month’s roundup is going to be super long – but that’s not because I read so many books last month, it’s because I was too lazy to write a January roundup so that this one covers both January and February. That’s good for me because the first month in 2017 was actually quite embarrassing […]
