    [Rezi] Kendare Blake – The Young Queens [Three Dark Crowns]

    Klappentext Mirabella, Arsinoe, and Katharine weren’t always scheming to murder each other. They weren’t always surrounded by rival foster families, each swearing to have their best interests at heart.

    [Neuzugänge] Mitbringsel aus England und Rezensionsexemplare

    Hallöchen zusammen, ich bin zurück aus meinem Auslandssemester und habe mir vorgenommen jetzt wieder regelmäßiger zu bloggen. Ich hoffe, dass dies auch klappt. Bisher sind in der letzten Woche bereits meine Rezensionen zu „Batman: Nightwalker“ und „Königlich verliebt“ erschienen, weitere werden folgen.

Neben Rezensionsexemplaren, welche in meiner Abwesenheit eintrafen, gibt es auch eine Menge Bücher, die ich in England gekauft habe. Ihr glaubt gar nicht, wie…
