Hey Guys! I’m back!
In case you might have wondered where I am, I’ve been away for the last three weeks in some wonderful exotic country for my vacation with hubs and my parents. It’s been 3 weeks of awesomeness in Thailand and … guess what I did there?
- Sun Bathing
- Eating lots of awesome Thai Food
- and of course …. tons of reading
And today, I wanted to share some impression from my last three weeks and of course also share my Reading list with you! I was so lucky and read some amazing books!!
Becoming Alpha by Aileen Erin
This was the first book I read when I was starting my vacation at Munich Airport. It was a fun book, but it did not blow me away completely. I was annoyed a few times by the main character and I didn’t feel the chemistry … 3/5 Stars
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Holy Cow! I didn’t know what I was missing when I passed on this book because the cover is.. well, boring! But Jenny (Supernatural Snark) told me it’s awesome so I read it! and .. OMG it’s solo awesome and I can’t wait for the next book! 5/5 Stars!
Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong
Being on a Paranomarl Trip, the next book I picked up was the new series from Kelley Armstrong. I’ve got to say that initially I was a little let down by the book. The first 50% were insanely boring but I’m so happy I stayed with the book then after this initial boringness the book finally started to be awesome! Hard to rate.. 3-4/5
Into The Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
So sad that this series is ending;( And … the ending was amazing! It had everything you wish for in a series ending. Heart Poding action, loss sacrifices and happiness!! 5/5 Stars
Death Sworn by Leah Cypess
Absolutely loved the concept and setting of the book! I liked the story and I really loved the main character. There were some parts which were a too little flashed out in my opinion, but other than this it was a great book! 3.5-4/5 Starts
Avalon by Mindee Arnett
Ahhaa!!!!!!! Star Wars meets The Heist Society – this story was soooooo awesome and I’m so excited I read it! I was passing on it first, not being completely interested but now I’m so happy I read it. It was so much fun, so full of action with amazing characters and a thrilling plot! 5/5 Stars
…. and because I loved Avalon so much, the next book I read was Mindee’s first book:
The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
I loove Snarky Heroines and Dusty has tons of it! Another book Jenny told me is a must read and now I finally did and loved it! 4.5/5 stars
TALKER 25 by Joshua McGune
Dragons! Whenever I read the word “dragons” I’m hooked. So I hoped this book would be awesome and fun. Sadly it was …. not. I didn’t like the main character at all, the storyline was often confusing and I didn’t get a few part of the story… Then, the whole story is very violent and even though I’m not having a problem with that, it grossed me out here. It was too much and intended to shock the readers without real meaning. 1.5/5 stars
Promise of Shadows by Justine Ireland
I remember when I saw the cover for the first time and fell in love. But then I was scared the amazing core wouldn’t live up to what’s inside. But YEAH it totally does! The book was so much fun! It had great wonderfully flawed characters and a great impressive story to tell! I’m so sad that this is not a series;( 5/5 Stars
And now, I’d love to share some random pics from my vacation for those interested 🙂
This is a beautiful festival celebrated in Thailand where you let small flower boats into a river.
Food & Drinks
Thai Food is just awesome! My favourite desert is Sticky Rice with Mango which I could seriously eat every day. Then, I had the best Pineapple Lichee Mojito ever and the most delicious Red Snapper, just to name a few…
Some Hotel Surroundings
We were at the JW Marriott in Phuket and it’s such a wonderful place and we love coming back once a year!
Time to Relax
The Mandara Spa at our Hotel is one of the most beautiful ones in Phuket and I always go there at least onces even though it’s a little pricey. But.. *sigh* so worth it for body and mind!
And those were just a few impressions from my last three weeks. I just came back so I actually have to go through all my pictures to look for more. Needless to say I had a wonderful time and read some amazing books.
My bookish Highlights were “The Bone Season” and “Avalon”.
Now, that I’m back I also miss the warm weather as winter is finally here in Germany with ugly cold, snowish weather I need to get used to now. Do you have any plans to run front he cold weather and maybe go somewhere warm?
