What’s a WATSON without his HOLMES? It’s actually a good question if thinking of the Reichenbachfall. Watson was clearly moving on but still held on to every memory that didn’t involve anything bad about his beloved Holmes – trying to hold on to the good stuff. Not quite in this book. After the tragic ending of The Last of August, the third novel of the Charlotte Holmes Series takes place one year after. Continue reading “The Case for Jamie”
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is one of the most imaginative novels I have experienced yet. This strange novel – and by strange I mean a good strange – is perfectly added to the photographs which accompany the story. This book is as much strange as it is unforgettable because you haven’t seen anything this peculiar in your life. Continue reading “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”
Fair question, but actually not. Probably everyone who has at least read one of his books has seen the high value of his writing, the reflection of his stories and the humor his characters have. So far I have read three books he has written (The Fault in Our Stars, Paper Towns and Turtles all the way down) and I am deeply impressed by his writing skills.

“Paper Towns” by John Green is the third book I’ve read by John Green so far and he hasn’t let me down. This book tells the story of a high school Senior Quentin who has always loved this girl Margo, but had never really talked to her – except when they found a dead guy in a park at the age of nine. Continue reading “Paper Towns”
The new bestseller novel “Turtles all the way down” by John Green deeply impressed me. After the long pause from “The Fault in Our Stars” he has really set off his career by writing a novel, almost better than the touching story of Hazel Graze.
His new novel is telling the story of the 17 year old Aza Holmes, who is together with her best friend, searching for the fugitive billionaire because of the 100 thousand dollar reward, while the book actually struggles with Aza herself. Continue reading “Turtles all the way down”
This story “The Smell of other People’s Houses” by Bonnie – Sue Hitchcock has really knocked me off of my feet. How she manages to link all of the four stories so they find an entangled end is stunning. Alaska 1970 – eleven years after Alaska becoming the 49th state of the United States of America – is about to be very nerve racking for the small village named “Fairbanks”. The four 17 year olds Ruth, Alyce, Dora and Hank are living separate lives, three of them already calling Fairbanks their hometown. Continue reading “The Smell of other People’s Houses”
“The Fault in Our Stars” is probably the most famous book of 2012. The novel by John Green has changed the lives of many, describing the heartbreaking story of the 17 year old Hazel Grace, who is diagnosed with lung cancer. Continue reading “The Fault in Our Stars”
