Jeffrey Archer * To Cut a Long Story Short Book review

I have never been so enthralled to hear 14 short stories of Jeffrey Archer again (after the deceptively good Cat O’Nine Tales). Had this as an audiobook playing in my car while driving up north and the entire journey was made ever so entertaining! Short stories — To Cut a Long Story Short: Death SpeaksContinue reading “Jeffrey Archer * To Cut a Long Story Short Book review”

OSHO – Talks on Sufi Stories

I got the OSHO – Just like this – talks on Sufi Stories as an audio-book in the car. And I’m not quite sure I liked it even though it proved to be fantastic and eye-opening on some aspects. I loved the parables (much like the Bible ones) and I think some of the deeperContinue reading “OSHO – Talks on Sufi Stories”

The Tufa Novels * The Hum and the Shiver Book Reivew

No one knows where the Tufa came from, or how they ended up in the mountains of East Tennessee.  When the first Europeans came to the Smoky Mountains, the Tufa were already there.  Dark-haired and enigmatic, they live quietly in the hills and valleys of Cloud County, their origins lost to history.  But there areContinue reading “The Tufa Novels * The Hum and the Shiver Book Reivew”

In 1843, a 16-year-old Canadian housemaid named Grace Marks was tried for the murder of her employer and his mistress.

Servant of the Bones * Anne Rice Book review

Anne Rice is world-famous for her “Interview with the vampire” series but from her came a few other stories – like Belinda, the erotic series “Claiming of the Sleeping Beauty” and now, I found “Servant of the Bones”, a story placed half in ancient Babylon and half in today’s world. Structured in three parts, thisContinue reading “Servant of the Bones * Anne Rice Book review”

Water for Elephants

Not since I read Susan Elisabeth Phillips Kiss an Angel did I have the pleasure to read about life in the Circus. Glamorous, set in the 1930’s – it’s a vivid picture about life during the prohibition told through the eyes of a wanderer, a runaway, a travelling soul. When Jacob Jankowski, recently orphaned and suddenly adrift,Continue reading “Water for Elephants”

Mortal Instruments – Book 1 – City of Bones * Cassandra Clare

Imagine a book so steampunk you are literally sprouting tattoos as you are reading it. Imagine a potent mix and match of anything that would make a teenager pick up a book from a shelf and read it. Vampires, werewolves, motorcycles, immortals, items to collect, a massive fight between good versus evil, teenagers with noContinue reading “Mortal Instruments – Book 1 – City of Bones * Cassandra Clare”

Me before you * Jojo Moyes

I was really happy to see this book was getting a movie! With Emilia Clarke! (Clark!) – You’ll know what I mean once you read the book. I must admit I dreaded reading the book after being told with teary eyes that this specific novel will leave me in pieces and crying before the end.Continue reading “Me before you * Jojo Moyes”
