I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Currently reading

A good one! Finally!

He Is Worthy - Lisa Henry

I am relieved - it wasn't me, in the end, but the books.


Because this one was gooooood.


Good writing, solid as gold. I noticed it immediately and thus enjoyed a good hour with this story.


It was well researched (thank you, thank you, thank you - I majored in Latin and Roman history in Junior College - the German equivalent of it). The story was dark and gritty, the characters were well drawn.


For a novella it had surprising depth.


It was very violent, a bit overdrawn for me, and the sex was not really sexy.

The story would have worked for me without it just fine.
