LGBTIQ+ Bücher

In den letzten Monaten durften einige Bücher mit LGBTIQ+ Bücher bei mir einziehen. Einige habe ich schon gelesen aber noch nicht alle.

Besonders haben es mit die Graphic Novelles an angetan, die wirklich angefangen zu lieben, da sie sie tolle Geschichten und Kunst verbinden.

Ups… Thalia hatte mal wieder Prozente auf fremdsprachige Bücher

Eigentlich wollte ich erst mal wieder ein paar Bücher lesen bevor ich neue kaufe aber Thalia hatte 17 Prozent auf fremdsprachige Bücher und da musste ich natürlich zuschlagen 😅.

Ingesamt wurden es vier Bücher geworden, davon sind zwei Graphik Novellen die ich in letzter Zeit gerne lese 😃

For Lila Reyes, a summer in England was never part of the plan. The plan was 1) take over her abuela’s role as head baker at their panadería, 2) move in with her best friend after graduation, and 3) live happily ever after with her boyfriend. But then the Trifecta happened, and everything?including Lila herself?fell apart. 

Worried about Lila’s mental health, her parents make a new plan for her: Spend three months with family friends in Winchester, England, to relax and reset. But with the lack of sun, a grumpy inn cook, and a small town lacking Miami flavor (both in food and otherwise), what would be a dream trip for some feels more like a nightmare to Lila…until she meets Orion Maxwell. 

A teashop clerk with troubles of his own, Orion is determined to help Lila out of her funk, and appoints himself as her personal tour guide. From Winchester’s drama-filled music scene to the sweeping English countryside, it isn’t long before Lila is not only charmed by Orion, but England itself. Soon a new future is beginning to form in Lila’s mind?one that would mean leaving everything she ever planned behind.

Eric Bittle may be a former junior figure skating champion, vlogger extraordinaire, and very talented amateur pâtissier, but being a freshman on the Samwell University hockey team is a whole new challenge. It is nothing like co-ed club hockey back in Georgia! First of all? There’s checking (anything that hinders the player with possession of the puck, ranging from a stick check all the way to a physical sweep). And then, there is Jack-his very attractive but moody captain.

Jeremy Harkiss, cheer captain and student body president, won’t let coming out as a transgender boy ruin his senior year. Instead of bowing to the bigots and outdate school administration, Jeremy decides to make some noise-and how better than by challenging his all-star ex-boyfriend, Lukas for the title of Homecoming King?

Lukas Rivers, football star and head of the Homecoming Committee, is just trying to find order in his life after his older brother’s funeral and the loss of his long-term girlfriend-who turned out to be a boy. But when Jeremy threatens to break his heart and steal his crown, Lukas kick starts a plot to sabotage Jeremy’s campaign.

When both boys take their rivalry too far, the dance is on the verge of being canceled. To save Homecoming, they’ll have to face the hurt they’re both hiding-and the lingering butterflies they can’t deny.

Now that college is over, English graduate Ben Cook is on the job hunt looking for something…anything…related to his passion for reading and writing. But interview after interview, hiring committee after hiring committee, Ben soon learns getting the dream job won’t be as easy as he thought. Proofreading? Journalism? Copywriting? Not enough experience. It turns out he doesn’t even have enough experience to be a garbage collector! But when Ben stumbles upon a “Now Hiring—No Experience Necessary” sign outside a restaurant, he jumps at the chance to land his first job. Plus, he can keep looking for a writing job in the meantime. He’s actually not so bad in the kitchen, but he will have to pass a series of cooking tests to prove he’s got the culinary skills to stay on full-time. But it’s only temporary…right? 

When Ben begins developing a crush on Liam, one of the other super dreamy chefs at the restaurant, and when he starts ditching his old college friends and his old writing job plans, his career path starts to become much less clear.

Gelesene Bücher im Jahr 2021

Das sind meine gelesen Bücher (ohne Re-Readings) aus dem Jahr 2021. Es sind leider wie im Jahr 2020 nicht so viele geworden aber zu meiner Verteidigung muss ich sagen hätte ich meine Re-Readings mit aufgenommen wären es wahrscheinlich ca. 40 Stück geworden 😊. Die Zahlen können zwar nicht mit den Zahlen aus den Jahren von 4 Jahren anknüpfen (da waren es gerne mal 200 Bücher im Jahr) aber es wird wieder besser 😃.

Waiting on Wednesday

Dark Tarot – Christine Feehan

Sandu Berdardi continues to exist only to protect his people. An ancient Carpathian, his entire long life has been dedicated to honor above all else. He knows his time has passed, especially since he has not been able to find his lifemate – the anchor to keep him sane in a world he no longer understands. But just as he truly starts to give up hope, a voice reaches out to him in the night and his world explodes into color.

Adalasia enters Sandu’s mind seamlessly, as if she has been a part of him forever. While she can see the shape of things to come in her deck of cards, her gift is both a blessing and a curse. The true course of Sandu’s quest remains unclear, with danger waiting at every turn. She cannot see everything the future holds, but she does know it is a journey they will take together.

By joining him, she will start them down a dangerous, seductive path from which there is no coming back….

Doch als ihre alte Jugendliebe Preston Masterson zurück nach Redwood kommt, um das alte Freemont-Anwesen in ein charmantes Inn umzubauen und pünktlich zu Weihnachten zu eröffnen, drehen die Einwohner von Redwood den Spieß um. Und plötzlich erfährt Marie am eigenen Leib, wie nervenaufreibend und lästig solche Kuppelversuche sein können. Erst recht, wenn sie einen in völliges Gefühlschaos stürzen …

Rezension: Last Guard (Nalini Singh)

Verlag 📙 : Berkley Verlag
Preis 💶: 19,98 € (Hardcover)
7,49 € (E-Book)
Seiten 📄: 384
ISBN: 978-1984803658

Erster Satz:

PAYAL. HAD RISEN to her position as CEO of the Rao Conglomerate
by being ready for anything. Surprise was an enemy to be conquered-
because unlike what seemed to be the majority of her race, she wasn’t
sanguine about the utopia of a world beyond the emotionless regime
of Silence.



Klappentext:

Termed merciless by some, and a robotic sociopath by others, Payal Rao is the perfect Psy: cardinal telekinetic, CEO of a major conglomerate, beautiful—and emotionless.

For Canto Mercant, family and loyalty are everything. A cardinal telepath deemed “imperfect” by his race due to a spinal injury, Canto cares for the opinions of very few—and ruthlessly protects those he claims as his own. Head of intel for the influential Mercant family, he prefers to remain a shadow in the Net, unknown and unseen. But Canto is also an anchor, part of a secretive designation whose task it is to stabilize the PsyNet. Now that critical psychic network is dying, threatening to collapse and kill the entire Psy race with it.

To save those he loves, Canto needs the help of a woman bound to him by a dark past neither has been able to forget. A woman who is the most powerful anchor of them all: Payal Rao. Neither is ready for the violent inferno about to ignite in the PsyNet . . . or the passionate madness that threatens to destroy them both.
