Rezension // You Don't Have to Say You Love Me von Sarra Manning

"Sweet, bookish Neve Slater always plays by the rules. And the number one rule is that good-natured fat girls like her don't get guys like gorgeous, handsome William, heir to Neve's heart since university. But William's been in LA for three years, and Neve's been slimming down and re-inventing herself so that when he returns, he'll fall head over heels in love with the new, improved her. So she's not that interested in other men. Until her sister Celia points out that if Neve wants William to think she's an experienced love-goddess and not the fumbling, awkward girl he left behind, then she'd better get some, well, experience. What Neve needs is someone to show her the ropes, someone like Celia's colleague Max. Wicked, shallow, sexy Max. And since he's such a man-slut, and so not Neve's type, she certainly won't fall for him. Because William is the man for her...right? Somewhere between losing weight and losing her inhibitions, Neve's lost her heart - but to who?" (Quelle)

blah // selbstverlegende Autoren

Ich glaube wenn mich jemand danach fragt was ich diese Semesterferien getrieben, dann könnte ich nur sagen: Amazon nach kleinen Schätzen durchforstet. Keine literarischen Meisterwerke. Ich habe genug auf meiner Leseliste von diesen must-reads. Nur kleine, günstige Schätze. Wahre Neuentdeckungen wenn man so sagen will.

Rezension // The Duke and I von Julia Quinn

"By all acounts, Simon Basset is on the verge of proposing to his best friend's sister, the lovely—and almost-on-the-shelf—Daphne Bridgerton. But the two of them know the truth—it's all an elaborate plan to keep Simon free from marriage-minded society mothers. And as for Daphne, surely she will attract some worthy sutiors now that it seems a duke has declared her desirable.But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, it's hard to remember that their courtship is a complete sham. Maybe it's his devilish smile,certainly it's the way his eyes seem to burn every time he looks at her... but somehow Daphne is falling for the dashing duke... for real! And now she must do the impossible and convince the handsome rogue that their clever little scheme deserves a slight alteration, and that nothing makes quite as much sense as falling in love..."

Rezension // Glitter Baby von Susan Elisabeth Phillips

"Welcome to the world of the Glitter Baby

Fleur Savagar is the most beautiful woman in the world . . . to everyone but herself. With her oversized hands and paddle-boat feet, her streaky blond hair and funny green eyes, she lives a life filled with secrets that began before she was born. That was when her bewitching mother left home to find James Dean and met Errol Flynn instead. Now Fleur has to grow up quickly, and life won't make that easy.
Jake Koranda is both New York's most brilliant playwright and Hollywood's hottest actor. Difficult, talented, and tormented, he has no patience for international glamour girls, not even ones with beautiful bodies and smart-aleck mouths. But there's more to the Glitter Baby than shine, and Fleur's tougher than Jake expects. Even with the odds stacked against her, she's fiercely determined to discover the woman she's destined to be.
An ugly duckling who can't believe she's turned into a swan . . . A tough-guy movie star with a haunted past . . . In a land of broken dreams, can two unlikely lovers trust their hearts?" (Quelle)

blah // Harlequin Romane

Ich nenne sie verschämt meine Guilty Pleasure, weil ich Geld für sie ausgebe und mich kaum traue zuzugeben dass ich sie lese. Sie sind der Grund wieso mein kindle Passwort geschützt ist und wenn ich gefragt werde, was ich gerade lese, sind sie der Grund dafür dass ich rot anlaufe und schnell überlege, welchen Buchtitel ich nennen kann, der respektable ist. Harlequin Romane.

Aktion // The Rory Gilmore Book List

Eine weitere unendliche(!!!) Aktion. Nach einem Gilmore Girls Marathon erinnerte ich mich daran, schon einmal eine Liste der Bücher im Netz gefunden zu haben, die Rory Gilmore, der Bücherwurm aller Bücherwürmer, in 7 Staffeln Gilmore Girls gelesen hat. Also machte ich mich von neuem auf die suche, und wurde schnell belohnt. Es ist eine lange, lange, lange Liste mit vielen Büchern die mich interessieren, und noch mehr Büchern, die es nicht tun. Ich werde sie nie ganz abarbeiten, das weiß ich selbst und jegliches Vorhaben dies zu tun wäre utopisch. Aber dennoch, sie soll mir als Kaufinspiration dienen.
