It’s been quite some time – I’m back. I’ve spent the last week in Vienna, but unfortunately had to work on a presentation for school which had me reading and writing all day long (unfortunately about Presidential Doctrines and not YA fiction!) – and so I haven’t had the desired time continue reading Rivers of London or to create some content for my blog. Well, I managed to take some time off today and so here we are: listing all the books I read and loved, but never reviewed!
#1 The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I only ever reviewed Queen of Air and Darkness and Chain of Gold because the other series were way before me ever blogging! I started reading The Mortal Instruments because I didn’t LOVE The Infernal Devices was her other series seemed more gripping – and it was for me! I loved Clary and Jace from the start, connected better to the characters and the story and just had a blast reading it. It’s been too long and so I really have to reread it – in English this time, because I only read the series in German and I bet the jokes are WAY funnier when read in the original language!
#2 The Ruby Red Trilogy by Kerstin Gier
I red this series way before ever I ever started to think about blogging, it was the first series I read that wasn’t middle grade, but somewhere in the YA category, if not as intense as other books in this genre. I loved the time-traveling aspect about this series, as well as the London scenery and the witty characters! I’m not 100% sure I’d love this if I read it now, but I connect it to some amazing memories, so it definitely belongs on this list – I really have to reread it sometime soon!
#3 The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
I read The Unhoneymooners last year in France while at the beach and it was perfect for that: the story was nothing grand, no masterpiece, but it was entertaining, cute and the perfect cheesy beach story.
#4 Black Blade by Jennifer Estep
I read Black Blade many many years ago and absolutely fell in love with the magical system: a town where a couple of rich families govern the city, every family member possessing a certain magic. With councils, family bosses and a security guard that has to protect the son of a very important person!
#5 Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie
Last spring/summer, I was the biggest fan of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot novels: and of course, Death on the Nile was a big success! I absolutely loved the complex mystery on the boat, the witty and mysterious characters together with Mr. Poirot and his friend – all together crammed on the luxurious boat when a murder occurs!
#6 The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I watched the first movie before ever knowing about the books and let me just say this: 12 year old me was absolutely shocked after witnessing the brutality of this movie. Of course, I had to know how it was all supposed to play out and went to the bookstore the very next day and read all the books in one week.
That’s it – sadly, my wifi won’t cooperate and so I have to call it an end here. The list wouldn’t have gone on forever as I always write reviews on the books I read! Tell me: do we have any books in common, and which are your not-talked about faves? Happy reading and enjoy your summer break!
