(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
it is Sunday and what´s best to do for Sunday´s than read?? Anyone with me? I am sharing another round of my reading list today. All of the books I have read in November (I wish they where more but with all the beginning of the Christmas hustle and bustle, Thanksgiving and our Holiday Party there wasn´t just enough time).

Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty //
Sensible Lyn is struggling to balance being a mother, wife and
businesswoman without losing her mind. Cat, whose perfect marriage is
the envy of all her friends, never suspects that her husband has been
hiding a secret that will tear her life apart. Directionless Gemma
changes jobs and boyfriends every few months and has just met a new man
who could be the one to unlock her hidden past.

everything, the bonds of the sisters are strong enough to withstand
whatever life throws at them. That is until the night of their
thirty-fourth birthday dinner, when home truths are revealed and things
are said that can’t be taken back.

My opinion: A nice read. I really love her writing style. I absolutey adored Big Little Lies and this book is also really great. Not as got as the other but a gread read. 

The New Fashion Rules by Victoria Margrath //
The rules of fashion have changed. The new digital era is all about
being seen, liked and inspired. So how do we define ourselves through
style? And why has the evolution of the Internet changed the way we buy
and wear clothing? Superblogger Victoria Magrath reveals the pivotal
moments that have transformed the fashion world, from the Nineties
through to the Noughties, and shares insider secrets and practical tips
for navigating the ever-changing fashion landscape. Find inspiration
from the new diversity movement which embraces all shapes and sizes,
relive the moment Cara Delevingne recorded a selfie on the catwalk and
discover how internet sensations like Instagram and ASOS are changing
the landscape of fashion permanently. These are The New Fashion Rules.

My opinion: Loved it and totally recommend it. I shows you Victoria´s perspective on the change of fashion from a few years ago and today´s fast fashion including more fashion shows than ever and new trends as fast as the Internet can share. If you are a fashion lover you can totally relate to the them and you will love it.

White Lies by Lucy Dawson //
Alexandra Inglis is a respected family doctor, trusted by her
patients to keep their most intimate secrets. And if sometimes the
boundaries between duty and desire blur… well, she’s only human.
when Alex oversteps a line with Jonathan, one of her patients, she
knows she’s gone too far. Jonathan is obsessive, and to get what he
wants he will tear Alex’s world apart – threatening not only her career
but her marriage and family too.
Soon Alex finds she’s capable
of doing almost anything to keep hold of her perfect life, as it begins
to spin dangerously out of her control…

My opinion: I couldn´t get into it for the frist 20 to 30 pages but at somepoint it has an interesting twist a way I could have never guessed it and it got me hooked from the minute this happened so I had to finish it at once. Super thrilling. You will not believe what and how it is happening. Highly recommend this one.

September Reading List….


Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
after all the hurly-burly the last couple of week including birthdays, our wedding and our honeymoon I have finally found the time to read the books I have wanted for so long and also share my September reading list with you.
In fact I first wanted to read all the books I bought recently and review them in one huge book review but there is now ways I am gonna make it any soon and now is the time where – at least I do so – we have to/can spend much more time inside and cuddle up and read a book.
I do have a Kindle and I have to admit I don´t use it at all. I need a real book in my hand and I want my books where I can see them and that is a shelf in my office.
So for today I am reviewig four books I have currently read:
Girl on the Train // I feel like this is such a basic book everyone already read but I also included it into my round-up cause it was new to me. I didn´t watch the movie either but I have to admit I wanted to read the book before. Movies sometimes destroy a lot of your imagination (Harry Potter for example). The book was great and I would totally recommend it and read it all over. I loved the perspective of the writing. Picturing her before and after her actions and working up the things she forgot. Also sometimes it has been a little annoying to take a step back after she already moved on.
Behind Closed Doors // This was awesome. I would totally recommend it to everyone who loves a good crime book. It was exciting the whole time and kept me super suspicious with all the people in the book and the action they took. You never know who is wrong and who knows it all. Great until the end with a unexpected twist at the end.
The Last Mrs. Parrish // To be honest I just started this one but I think it is going to be interesting. It is about a girl who thinks she deserves a better live and wants to steel a husband from another women. So she manages to frequently show up in their lives. That is all I know from now but it´s all about lying and sheeming and I hope this is going to be a great thriller.
The Girl with no past // Oh boy. This was very hard to get into it. It is switching a lot between the past and the now but isn´t telling you anything you really want to know. But after reading through it came on pretty strong after finally knowing what has happened in the past.

These are all the books I have read from August and September (I wanted to read so much more but I think this has to wait until the evenings are dark and cold and I can stay inside without feeling guilty by not being outside). I have ordered about 6 new books with my last order so stay tuned there is going to come a lot of fall mystery your way.

 Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
