Here’s To Tomorrow – Review

IMG_9901edited“Teagan Hunter who?” I have to admit, that was my initial reaction about a year ago too, when I heard her name for the first time. But you know what I love? Indie authors! It is a shame that too many of them are still unknown. On top of that, they have to compete against the big well-known published authors. So why not take a chance on them? And that’s what I did with Teagan Hunter‘s Here’s To Tomorrow – and Teagan didn’t disappoint.

Rae Kamden just graduated from college and can’t wait to conquer the big world – or at least that’s what she thinks she wants. She’s torn between leaving her small town and moving to Boston to start a big career. This is when she runs into Hudson Tamell. Although the last seven years haven’t been easy for him, he finally has his life exactly where he wants it. However, meeting Rae and her unfiltered mouth that day makes him rethink everything. Can both handle each others baggage? Continue reading “Here’s To Tomorrow – Review”

Excess Baggage – Review

IMG_9873editedBack in March, when it was still cold and depressing outside, I got an ARC sign-up form from Laura Barnard who was going to release her new book, Excess Baggage, in May. The novel promised to be full of sunshine, summer and old feelings – the perfect getaway from this weather. Now it is May and the weather over here in Germany still hasn’t improved since March. So what was better than turning on your ebook reader and seeing the ARC loading? I couldn’t wait to start with this second chance novel under the sun of Luna Island.

Erica Bennett and her friends are on vacation to have a few days to themselves and away from the hectic and stressful life at home. Erica doesn’t expect to stumble upon Jack Lawson – her first holiday romance back when she was fifteen. It is not long until sparks fly and Erica and Jack rekindle their old feelings. But what happens after their vacation is over? Is their chance meeting a second shot at something real or will this stay another holiday romance? Continue reading “Excess Baggage – Review”

My History of Reading – Sabrina

I was maybe 8 or 9 and I still remember getting a book from my mom’s best friend. I hated the book and didn’t want to read it. There were so many words, so many pages and less pictures. In elementary school I always had an A in reading, so my not wanting to read was not about my ability to read but rather about my lack of enthusiam. Crazy, I know, especially because I love reading these days and can’t picture my life without it. I guess it was just a phase or the wrong book and/or the wrong genre for me.
However, during 5th/6th grade I discovered reading books for me. IIMG_9115edited was totally obsessed with the Freche Mädchen – Freche Bücher books (~”Sassy Girls – Sassy Books”). The books were aimed at girls in their tweens or early teens. The stories were about a bunch of girlfriends who had to deal with school, parents, clothes, boys, first love and the following first heartbreak. The great thing was that the books were not written from one author alone but from many. The “Freche Mädchen – Freche Bücher” theme was only the name of the series in general. Every author then wrote their own sub-series with their own characters and stories. My goal was to own every single one of the books, there was even a tick-list at the end of each book. And since I’ve always been someone who loved lists and tick things off a list, I did just that: I ticked off the books I already had and marked the ones I wanted next.
