Stacking The Shelves #10

Saturday, June 18, 2016

is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!





Since about two years I am a huge fan of the Hannah Peters series by the German author Thomas Thiemeyer. In the focus is the archeologist Hannah Peters, a tough but still female woman who sees her job as a passion.
I started that series with the book Valhalla, not knowing then that it was part of a series and the third book of it. I was so thrilled during reading, that I started to buy the others as well. In the mean time the publisher redesigned the covers into a more modern style and Babylon is the newest out of it.

I noticed Chevy Stevens for the first time, when I read her thriller That Night. What an amazing book! And when I saw that her newest Those Girls was about to get published in Germany, I had to have it. A few weeks ago it arrived at my house and I enjoyed it already.

Sometimes it happens that a publisher is sending me a book without giving me any notice up-front. I don´t mind, but I found out, that most of the books I received that way, were not matching my taste in books.



My bought books

Bay of Sighs by Nora Roberts





To celebrate the rise of their new queen, three goddesses of the moon created three stars: one of fire, one of ice, one of water. But then they fell from the sky, putting the fate of all worlds in danger. And now three women and three men join forces to pick up the pieces …
Mermaid Annika is from the sea, and it is there, she must return to after her quest to find the stars. New to this world, her purity and beauty are nothing less than breathtaking, as is her graceful athleticism, which her five new friends discovered when they retrieved the Fire Star. Now, through space and time, traveler Sawyer King has brought the guardians to the island of Capri, where the Water Star is hidden. And as he watches Annika in her element, he finds himself drawn to her joyful spirit. But Sawyer knows that if he allows her into his heart, no compass could ever guide him back to solid ground … And in the darkness, their enemy broods. She lost one star to the guardians, but there is still time for blood to be spilled – the mermaid´s in the water and the traveler´s on the land. For she has forged a dangerous new weapon. Something deadly and unpredictable. Something human.

  2. Well, at least you are getting some books from publishers. Perhaps if you let them know what sort of books you like, you will get matched better in the future. Have a great week.

    1. I discovered the German author at my library a few years back. Didn´t know him before that either. Sadly his newest book wasn´t as good as the other ones. Thanks for stopping by.
