Requesting Reviews #1

I've been very very quiet these past few weeks. Too quiet! It seems I have lost all my followers :(
Anyway, on Tuesday is my last day of uni before the big summer break. So Wednesday will be the first day of 3 months of lots of time, time for books and reading. Lots of reviews! I thought I could start of with asking you, what reviews do you want, which of my many books I've read recently are you most curious about?

I've never received any books for free, never got any books for review, so my reviews are my opinions and mine alone. ( If you want to send me books for review you are free to do that of course :P )
You've probably seen under my feature ' Just Arrived' which books I've bought recently, so that should give you an idea...
But anyway...send your request for reviews..I'll start writing them on wednesday the latest ( maybe even sooner).
Send your requests as a comment on this post or to: queen_nreading@yahoo.de

Here are some of the books I've read recently (but, really!!, not all of them!), just a small sample!!
About Time -Niamh Shaw
Twenty Times a Lady - Karyn Bosnak
Sophomore Switch - Abby McDonald
Boys, Bears and a serious Pair of Hiking Boots - Abby McDonald
Going to Far - Jennifer Echols
Perfect Chemistry - Simone Elkeles
How to Knit a Love Song - Rachael Herron
Accidental IT Girl - Libby Street

Just Arrived #8

Only two weeks left of uni...only two weeks left of whining...at least until Summer's over..

I've a lot of books ordered and I'm getting a bit angry that they take so long to arrive (amongst them Jenny Colgan with The Good, the Ugly and the Dumped...I can't wait..what's taking so long?) Anyway, I actually don't have time to read anyway..I haven't read anything since reading the wonderful About Time ..it's still in my head.

We have wonderful weather here..really really wonderful..so, today I took a time-out from studying and walked to the post-office to get this:

I was in Stockholm yesterday, mainly because of an intern-ship in a library.
Of course I couldn't ignore the opportunity of visiting my favourite book-store which boasts of having the biggest "pocket book section" in Scandinavia (Norden).I'm not sure I believe that. Not sure at all. Anyway, their selection of English books is quite small, and most of them I already own. Anyway, I managed to find these two books:

I got home late, but I finished About Time by Niamh Shaw before falling asleep. Expect a review soon (that will be a very very very difficult review for me to write!)

First of all I'd like to apologize for not updating this blog as often as I'd like to. I especially regret the lack of reviews posted here lately. The way I prioritize in my daily life, the reviews often come on second or third or fourth or whatever place. With uni and having finals I rather spend my free-time reading than writing reviews. But soon the big summer-break will be here (only 3 more weeks to go, yay!) and then I'll definitely have some time over for writing reviews, and believe me, I've read a lot of books lately.

These past 3 days I've read more books than I can count (yes, math isn't my strength..haha), anyway I've read, amongst others, Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols and I really really loved it, what a book! Yesterday afternoon I read Sophomore Switch by Abby McDonald and I really enjoyed it, but I liked her new one, Boys Bears and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots better. And finally, I have to confess, my resolve broke down and I started reading About Time by Niamh Shaw last night, I seriously couldn't wait longer ( I wanted to read it on the beach, or on the balcony in the sun this summer)...well, I didn't get much sleep last night...so far I love it!

Anyway, full length reviews will be posted soon!
Happy reading!

Just Arrived #7 Yay it's finally here :D

Yay, it has finally arrived! Was about Ime !! Lol. From being "first" last time to being "last", at least it feels like it. Anyway, I haven't quite decided yet if I'm going to devour it immediately or if I'm going to wait and cherish it...difficult decision..haha

Along with About Time by Niamh Shaw a few other books have arrived too

Now there's only one book left that hasn't arrived yet...
