Connelly, Michael: The Last Coyote (1996 / Harry Bosch #4)

The fourth part of the series (reviews of the previous three parts can be found here) started off with a major disappointment, as a relationship that I’d been kind of excited about ended off-page so to speak, meaning everything seemed fine at the end of part three, and then at the beginning of part four… Continue reading Connelly, Michael: The Last Coyote (1996 / Harry Bosch #4)

Connelly, Michael: The Concrete Blonde (1994 / Harry Bosch #3)

This post will discuss the third novel in the Harry Bosch series. I reviewed part one and two here and here. In his third case (well, the third case as documented by Michael Connelly), Harry Bosch has to face his troubled past. He is standing trial for shooting and killing a suspect in the ‘Dollmaker’ case,… Continue reading Connelly, Michael: The Concrete Blonde (1994 / Harry Bosch #3)

Hawkins, Paula: The Girl on the Train (2015)

With all the hype surrounding this book and a film adaptation of it coming out later in 2016, I’ve been meaning to pick up this novel for a long time. It was marketed as ‘the new Gone Girl’, and I expected it to be one of those books that I’d recommend to all my of… Continue reading Hawkins, Paula: The Girl on the Train (2015)

Moyes, Jojo: Me Before You (2012)

A little warning: if you’re expecting a review, you’ll be greatly disappointed. I did not write a review tonight because a) there’s just no way I’m objectively reviewing anything right now (because all my reviews are always extremely objective…yeah, right…) and b) because I wouldn’t know what to say without giving too much away. As… Continue reading Moyes, Jojo: Me Before You (2012)

Sehn, Tyler: Daughter of Shadow (2015)

Hello! Today I’m reviewing another book that I won in a goodreads giveaway: Tyler Sehn’s Daughter of Shadow – a Spiritbinder War Novel, the first instalment of what will probably turn into a longer series. A longer series the rest of which I shall not endeavour to read after laboriously ploughing through part one. I did actually… Continue reading Sehn, Tyler: Daughter of Shadow (2015)

Hannah, Kristin: The Nightingale (2015)

Let’s not waste time beating around the bush here: I’m going to recommend you read this novel. If you’re prone to crying in public you might want to consider reading it in the privacy of your home though, and I would also recommend you keep a box of tissues handy at all times! I’m not kidding… Continue reading Hannah, Kristin: The Nightingale (2015)

Roberts, Nora: The Liar (2015)

Nora Roberts is another one of those authors: she’s well known, has a certain reputation, and whether or not you ever actually picked up and read one of her novels, chances are you probably feel like you know what to expect. I decided to verify my assumptions and picked up one of her latest novels, The Liar. I… Continue reading Roberts, Nora: The Liar (2015)

Wise, Kim: Crossing the Line (2015 / Territories #1)

I recently entered a goodreads giveaway and I actually won something! This never happens! Although I frequently scam messages claiming that I won an Iphone / 1000€, I can’t remember ever actually winning anything. The book arrived last weekend, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I caught a mean tonsillitis that keeps me from… Continue reading Wise, Kim: Crossing the Line (2015 / Territories #1)

Lovecraft, H.P.: The Beast in the Cave (1905)

Some nights ago I started reading the complete fiction of H.P. Lovecraft. I’ve been wanting to explore this topic for a while now, and I decided it was time. On a completely unrelated note, let me tell you that I’ve been obsessed with the board game Arkham Horror ever since my friends first introduced me to it last… Continue reading Lovecraft, H.P.: The Beast in the Cave (1905)

Connelly, Michael: The Black Ice (1993 / Harry Bosch #2)

The Black Ice is the second instalment of Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch series, the first part of which I discussed here. The second Harry Bosch novel is similar to the first in that it’s main focus is – surprise! – Harry Bosch, an LAPD detective, who in the real world probably would have been fired for… Continue reading Connelly, Michael: The Black Ice (1993 / Harry Bosch #2)
