BOOK REVIEW: AchtNacht von Sebastian Fitzek (German only)

Da ich momentan so richtig im Thriller/Krimi Fieber bin, musste der neue Fitzek natürlich sofort her. Ich lese selten Bücher deutscher Autoren, warum, weiß ich selbst nicht so genau, Fitzek allerdings ist ein regelmäßiges Muss und nicht wegzudenken aus meinem Bücherregal. Nachdem Das Paket mich absolut begeistern konnte – ein richtiges Meisterwerk sag ich euch – war ich unglaublich gespannt, was Fitzek seinen Lesern denn als Nächstes zu bieten hat. Die Tatsache, dass er sich von dem Film The Purge hat inspirieren lassen, hat mich noch neugieriger gemacht. Ich bin ein großer Horrorfilm Fan und mag die The Purge Filme wirklich sehr, weshalb dieses Buch nicht nur auf meine Wunschliste, sondern unmittelbar in mein Bücherregal gewandert ist.

BOOK REVIEW: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

There are books out there; important books because they cover and focus on social and political topics; hushed up topics nobody really talks about although everyone  S H O U L D  talk about them.

They don’t cover important issues but they are just really really good. And sometimes you find a book that is both important and so really good that you’re unable to put it down. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is one of those books.

BOOK REVIEW: Road to Riverdale (Archie Comics)

af

First off I’ve never read the comics, I haven’t even heard of Riverdale until the show premiered on Netflix. It sounded great though and after a friend of mine kept raving about it and telling me how good this show was I watched the first episode and fell in love with this show and its characters immediately. I’ve become quite obsessed with Riverdale since; I think I’ve rewatched every episode at least twice so of course I had to check out the comics as well. I didn’t know that Road to Riverdale actually wasn’t the original comic which is why I already ordered the original first Archie comic yesterday and I cannot wait to read it. But even though Road to Riverdale was different than I expected I quite enjoyed it.
