One Foot In The Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Friday, April 20, 2018
Sometimes I wonder if I would have read this series at all when I look at the original covers and compare them to those, the German editions have. Not that the English covers aren´t good looking, but to be honest, they aren´t really my taste. On the other hand, I would have missed some great books, if I would have gone after that.

Ich Beobachte Dich by Chevy Stevens

I was waiting for Never Let You Go to come out in Germany for many months. And it was worth the wait. The cover was one of the first things I´ve noticed. It kind of got me right away and it fits so well. Oh boy …

Eleven years ago, she escaped a nightmare, living with her controlling, violent husband Andrew. He had to go to jail. Lindsey has blurred all traces and built a new life for herself and Sophie.

Right from the beginning, this thriller gives you an oppressive feeling. And the more pages I´ve read, the stronger it became.

Waiting On Wednesday #69 – Shades Of Wicked by Jeaniene Frost

Wednesday, April 18, 2018
is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t.

I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

The Sweetest Burn by Jeaniene Frost

For whatever reason, I wasn´t really interested in reading this second book, or the rest of this trilogy, for a long time. Don´t ask me why I can´t really explain it. As a huge fan of the authors Night Huntress series, this one is slightly different and maybe I needed the right time to get into it again.

Broken Destiny #2
Publisher HQN Books on June 27, 2017
Genre Fantasy
Pages 346
Format Paperback

Conquering a supernatural realm turned out to be easier than getting over a broken heart. But her initial victory has made Ivy a target for revenge, forcing her to reunite with the dangerous – and dangerously sexy – Adrian. Ivy isn´t sure which will be harder: finding the hallowed weapon that will repair the crumbling walls between the demon and human realms, or resisting Adrian, who´s decided that come hell or high water, he will make Ivy his.


A few weeks back, I thought, I´d give it another try and asked for the third book of this trilogy, the second was too old to require – and was VERY surprised when I got it.

Halfway To The Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Friday, April 13, 2018
Now, years after reading this book, I am thinking why I wanted this novel in the first place. Was it the German cover edition (you can see it at the review end) or the summary, or both together? Can´t say for sure, but it was a pure reading pleasure, that´s for sure.

Halfway To The Grave

There he was, the pact with the devil. The vampire looked at me seductively and threateningly at the same time. If I refused his offer, it would be happy hour for him and I the drink. If I agreed, however, I would make an alliance with the absolute evil … (personal translation) 


Good, some parts of this book were a bit too much, at least that´s how I see it. But in the end, I was well entertained, and that´s what counts.
