Waiting On Wednesday #89 – Chain Of Gold by Cassandra Clare

Wednesday, February 13, 2019
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.

Rest In Peace Rosamunde Pilcher

Yesterday afternoon I heard the sad news, that Rosamunde Pilcher had died.

I was shocked, couldn´t believe it at first and felt sad. For over twenty years she had been a solid rock on TV in the genre romance. Her novels and other writing material have been filmed in numerous ways; ZDF (a German TV station) has been making more than 100 films since 1989 and they were watched by a broad audience on Sunday evenings.

It wasn´t necessary to sit in front of the TV (though we sat there of course) to know, that it was Pilcher-time when certain music was to hear, and the light and romantic tone sounded through our living room.

The wonderful landscapes, the buildings that were shown and the small towns where every novel was set. Her style was unmistakable.


Wenn Das Glück Erwacht by Robyn Carr

Thursday, February 07, 2019
We don´t need to start a discussion about the look of the German edition. No doubt, the cover of the English edition, is way better. It is its content, that counts. Though this one is a bit shallow despite its often very serious tone and story.

Emma´s life is in shards: Before her husband is arrested, he commits suicide. Although Emma has nothing to do with his criminal business, she is shunned by all. She hopes to find a safe haven in her old home. But here too, not only beautiful memories are waiting for her. In particular, before a meeting with her former best friend Riley, she is afraid. All the more surprised is Emma that Riley´s brother Adam receives her with open arms – and is always on hand when she needs a strong shoulder to lean on … (a personal translation of the German edition´s backtext by ©Vi at Inkvotary).

Thoughts

Robyn Carr shows the side of life, that isn´t as happy and easy, as one would wish for.

Familie Ist, Wenn Man Trotzdem Liebt by Susan Mallery

Saturday, February 02, 2019
Writing this review wasn´t easy. Somehow, I was searching for words to describe the mood I was in while reading and always waiting for the moment that the story will make me feel touched. Well, what can I say?

Now, however, she spends the weekend at the well-known, attractive artist, as her car slips down a slope. In fact, a blessing for both, because they spend very enjoyable nights … But Natalie dreams of a husband and own children. Ronan, on the other hand, recoils at the word “family”. Will Natalie be able to tame the dragon? (personal translation ©Vi at Inkvotary)

Thoughts

Either this one wasn´t meant for me or it just wasn´t the right time. But compared to other books I´ve read by the author, Happily Inc couldn´t catch me the way her other work has managed it.

In the town of Hawkins Hollow, it´s called The Seven. Every seven years, on the seventh day of the seventh month, strange things happen. It began when three young boys – Caleb, Fox, and Gage – went on a camping trip to The Pagan Stone … It is only February, but Caleb Hawkins – a descendant of the town founders – has already seen and felt the stirrings of evil. Though he can never forget the beginning of the terror in the woods twenty-one-years ago, the signs have never been this strong before. Cal will need the help of his best friends Fox and Gage, but surprisingly he must rely on a stranger as well. Reporter Quinn Black came to Hawkins Hollow hoping to make its eerie happenings the subject of her new book. She too can see the evil the locals cannot, somehow connecting her to the town -and to Cal. As winter turns to spring, they will shed their inhibitions, surrendering to a desire that will grow and form the cornerstone of a group of men and women bound by the fight against what is to come from out of the darkness …

Thoughts

This book kind of surprised me. It was totally different from every book I knew so far from the author.
