[Rezension] Leigh Bardugo - King of Scars


King of Scars | Leigh Bardugo | 527 Seiten | e-Book | ca. 8€


Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, the young king must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.
Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.


[Monatsrückblick] Februar 2019


Nachdem der Januar irgendwie gar nicht vergehen wollte, ist der Februar an mir vorbeigerast. Ich weiß gar nicht, wo die Zeit geblieben ist. Mein Februar war am meisten davon geprägt, dass ich gehofft habe, die eine blöde Klausur bestanden zu haben. Ich habe die Seite der Prüfungsergebnisse im Stundentakt aktualisiert und ihr glaubt gar nicht, wie groß die Erleichterung war, als das Ergebnis endlich online war und ich den grünen Kreis gesehen habe. Daraufhin habe ich mich erstmal entspannt, bis mir Ende Februar meine eine Hausarbeit eingefallen ist, die Mitte März fällig ist und ich habe noch nicht mal mit dem Schreiben begonnen. Die ersten zwei Märzwochen werden jetzt also erstmal ziemlich stressig.

[Rezension] Elle Kennedy - The Risk


The Risk | Elle Kennedy | 432 Seiten | e-Book | 3,49 €


Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.
And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.
I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend.
For every fake date…he wants a real one.
Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.
That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.

With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.


[Monatsrückblick] Januar 2019


Für viele ist der Januar wie im Flug vergangen, aber für mich ist Januar der Monat, der irgendwie nie zu Ende gehen will, weswegen ich inzwischen echt froh bin, dass wir diesen Monat hinter uns lassen.
