Right now, I am reading De Elfen by Bernhard Hennen. It's a German writer and as far as I know, this book hasn't been translated in Englisch.
Half a year ago I started reading this book, but after 124 pages I stopped reading. I have no idea why I did not get through the book, becouse now I think it's one of the most beautiful and fascinating fantasy I've ever read.
Sorry for my poor English.
Your English is great! I look forward to following all the books you read.
I Finally finished my first book for this challenge yesterday!
1) De Elfen / Die Elfen (translated from German) - Bernhard Hennen *****
>> 670 pages
I absolutely loved this book! Great fantasy story! I'm so glad that I gave it another try! I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
I think I will choose another book for this challenge next month.
After reading 3 books with a sad subject I feel like reading something funny. So now I'm going to read my second book for this challenge. It's a chick lit. It could be a hard one for me, because I usually get bored of reading chick lits.
I found out today that this book has been filmed. Did anyone see the movie "Starter for ten"?
I finished the third one on my list...
3) De Shining / The Shining - Stephen King ***½
I survived my first horror experience. :-)
Some people say that The Shining is King's best book. I did enjoy this book, but I doubt it's really his best. I hope there are better books written by this author.
4) Ciske de Rat; De complete Ciske trilogie - Piet Bakker (Dutch)
Ciske de Rat ****
Ciske groeit op ****
Cis de man ***½
I ejoyed reading these three stories so much! Reading Ciske de Rat was like meeting an old friend. :-)
It has been a while ago since I've been here.
My TBR challenge hasn't been that successful. I only read 2 more books of my TBR pile since the last time I've been here. Maybe I'll give it another try next year. ;)
