It doesn't have to be so complicated

Oh boy, I've never done anything like this so I don't really know how to start.
I just finished a really, really good book and it made me think:
There are people out there, that really are reading my blog even if I don't see it. They are looking for advice on good books and I could help them but sometimes I'm to lazy to write my reviews, or have so much to do that the words are stuck in my head and never find their way out. I like reading books, a lot! So I thought it would be fun to share my thoughts on some of them but I never really thought that it would take so much time.
I'm not complaining or anything because I really like doing it!
Since I'm here with you all in the blogosphere I experienced a lot of good things and I don't want to miss that.
I'm just asking you to be patient with me and there will be a lot more coming!
This could be more!
Encouraging people to read a book, tell them about your favourite one or just talk about the lives in all the books is amazing.
Let's do that together, shall we?

Now, there's a big pile of books I have to write a review to!
Stay with me and spread the word.

Another World

The Fame Game by Lauren Conrad


Synopsis

In Hollywood, fame can be found on every corner and behind any door. You just have to know where to look for it. Nineteen-year-old Madison Parker made a name for herself as best frenemy of nice-girl-next-door Jane Roberts on the hot reality show L.A. Candy. Now Madison's ready for her turn in the spotlight and she'll stop at nothing to get it. Sure, she's the star of a new show, but with backstabbing friends and suspicious family members trying to bring her down, Madison has her work cut out for her. Plus, there's a new nice girl in "reality" town—aspiring actress Carmen Price, the daughter of Hollywood royalty—and she's a lot more experienced at playing the fame game... When the camera's start rolling, whose star will shine brighter?



My review

I was pleased to read that Lauren Conrad is going to publish another trilogy since I really enjoyed reading the L.A. Candy novels. But as soon as I finished The Fame Game I was a little unsatisfied. I was hoping for a little bit more action because L.A. Candy really pushed my expectations.

“The Fame Game” is a book about big dreams and how you should never give up on them because one day they might come true and you have to be ready!

Madison Parker is a 19 year old girl who knows exactly what she wants. Coming from a poor family, Madison had the desire early on to escape her background and start to live her life. She lies about her family and her past and soon gets a part on a TV show called L.A. Candy. She wanted to be famous. She wanted it all. She was willing to do everything and even betrayed so-called friends.
Now she is back again, still the old Madison addicted to everything related to money.  And still not willing to share the spotlight.
Carmen Curtis was born into a family with very popular parents so she shouldn’t need to worry about fame and money. But Carmen wants to step out of her parents’ shadow and make an acting career on her own.
Kate Hayes the girl next door from Columbus, Ohio is trying her best to be the number one in the music charts. Some might know her from her youtube videos other will get to know her from “The Fame Game”.  After High School Kate decided not to go to college and moved to L.A. instead where she now has two jobs and is trying to survive.
At last there’s Gaby. Gaby has no special talents and is just doing what she’s told. She just needs a pretty boy on her side and she’s fine.

Four Girls, one dream.
Make it in Hollywood and just do what they love to do, whether it’s acting, singing or fashion.
When Trevor Lord asked the girls if they want to be in his new show on one of them thought it would end up like that.
It is Kate’s first time in L.A. and she has come here in the hope of moving forward with her singer-/songwriter career. When Kate meets Luke it couldn’t be better for her. Finally she has her stage fright under control and there’s a man in her life besides Ethan, her Ex, she can talk to. They spent a lot of time together and it looks as if the would fall for each other if weren’t for his acting career and the fact that he’s in a fake relationship with Carmen just to promote their movie.
All Carmen ever wanted was to step out of her parents’ shadow and be famous for things she accomplished herself. She never intended to hurt Kate because even though they know each other for just a couple of weeks, she is one of her best friends. At the moment everything is a little out of control. She has got the part in a major movie but her dad still thinks “The Fame Game” is a bad idea and she still doesn’t know if Drew is just her best friend or if the kiss a few weeks back was more than that. Then there’s the fact that Madison is making her life more complicated than it already is. Why does she have to challenge her on all their meetings?
Everyone knows Madison is after money and fame and she’s willing to do almost everything for that. But now of all things her sister got out of rehab and she doesn’t return empty handed. Their dad, Charlie, is back and after all those years when he didn’t call or write he wants to spend some time with his girls. Madison is very sceptical but soon she starts to believe that he truly means what he says. She starts to trust him again but in the end he disappoints her much more and she’s in a lot of trouble.
While everyone has her own little drama in their private life, the “The Fame Game” adds a lot more.
Are they ready to let everyone in America have a look at their lives?

Lauren Conrad was a big positive surprise for me when I read her first trilogy ‘L.A. Candy’ and she didn’t disappoint me this time.
She has created four different characters and made them work together. I like the idea, and in my head it was like one TV episode after another.
However I think there’s something missing in that story but I can’t figure out what it is.
You will get a really good look in each of the girls’ point of view because the chapters are written from each perspective, which makes the whole book even more interesting.

If you’re a fan of ‘The Hills’, reality TV in general, and a lot of drama, this book is definitely the right one for you.
I swallowed page after page. This book will attract you in more than one way and before you know it, you in the middle of the game for fame!

When It Happens by Susane Colasanti

Synopsis


Seniors in high school Sara and Tobey couldn’t be more different. She wants to get into her first-choice college; he wants to win Battle of the Bands. Sara’s other goal is to find true love, so when popular Dave asks her out, she’s thrilled. But Tobey always creeps into her thoughts. Lucky for Sara, one of Tobey’s goals is to make her fall in love with him.







My review

“When it Happens” is a book about growing up, the uncertainty of the future and finding a real relationship.
Sara Tyler is a senior in high school. Her goals for the last year in school: Get into NYU and find something real. She’s a good student and working very hard to make sure at least one of her goals comes true.

Tobey’s only goal is it to win the Battle of the Bands and on his way to do that, win Sara’s heart.

Right before the summer holidays, the new guy, Dave, asks for Sara’s number and the whole time she wonders why he’s not calling her. Together with her two best friends, she analyses the whole situation until he finally asks her out, the first day back at school. It couldn’t be better for Sara. People are recognising her and she doesn’t mind the attention. Through Brian she has a new circle of friends but doesn’t feel quite comfortable. The relationship with Brian turns out not to be what she thought it would be.
Meanwhile Tobey has an eye on Sara but does he have a chance against Brian? He tries everything to win Sara’s heart and in the end he can’t believe he did it.
Now that she’s with him what else could he want? Everyone around him is applying for college or at least has a clue what to do after school but Tobey never thought about it. Thanks to Sara and his music teacher Tobey soon realises that he wants more than just live from day to day and that his decision might affect Sara’s and his future.

“When it Happens” is a really easy and quick read. It tells the story of Sara and Tobey in such a lovely, a fresh way that you’ll finish it in no time.
Though, you shouldn’t take it too seriously because clearly it’s meant to be for the younger readers. The characters in the book are around 17-18 years old but they certainly don’t act like that. They have a na├»ve way of handling things and sometimes their thoughts made me laugh.
The main point of the book is the relationship between Tobey and Sara and how they find their way together and make their relationship work even though they’re so different. During the book they find out that they actually have a lot in common, it got more ridiculous each time they found something new. In my opinion it was a little too much!
I couldn’t be too disappointed because I knew what kind of book this would be but there are still a few things that bothered me.
For example the fact that Tobey changed so much throughout the relationship and Sara just stayed the same to me. She often mentioned that “my old me” would never do that, or “in my earlier days I would’ve thought about it twice..”, but you never get to know her “old-self” so you don’t get the feeling she changed much.

Nothing really happens in the book but you swallow it page by page. You don’t have to think too much while reading it and you can just enjoy it.
If you’re looking for something cheerful to read for a holiday or a long journey, you’ve found the right book.

A book ...

A blessed companion is a book, - a book that, fitly chosen, is a lifelong friend, a book that, at a touch, pours its heart into our own.  - Douglas Jerrold

Fury by Elizabeth Miles


Synopsis

Em loves the winter holidays. And this year, things are really looking up:  the guy she’s been into for months has finally noticed her. But if she starts something with him, there’s no turning back. Because he’s going out with her best friend.
On the other side of town, Chase’s home life is stressful and his social life’s unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. For Chase has done something cruel – something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.
Mistakes can be deadly. And three beautiful, mysterious girls are about to make them pay …




My review
When I read the synopsis of the book I clearly wasn’t prepared for what I would find in there.
Fury is a book with an unexpected dimension about deadly mistakes, revenge and saving what you love the most.

The book is written in two different perspectives:
Emily Winter, a young girl who seems to have it all. An intact family, money, good grades in school, a best friend and a high status at school. 
Chase singer is a boy who didn’t grow up with all those opportunities.  He lives in a trailer park with his mother and ‘fights’ his way up on the status scale. He’s the quarterback of the football team, the best friend of Zach, the most popular guy in the school. Chase successfully establishes himself in school. He does what he wants and no one say anything about it. Through his behaviour he wants to hide his broken background.

Since the book has two viewpoints you get a closer look at the events and some parts are more understandable. You get dragged in, in a world of lies and uncertain events.
I enjoyed getting to know Chase and Emily a little and see everything from each of their own perspectives.
My first reaction when I read the first two chapters: Why would you want to read the story from the perspective of Chase when he’s  ‘just’ the best friend of Zach, who clearly deserves a bigger part because he’s involved in so many little things. After a few more pages it all became clear.
Even though Chase is a very unlikeable person you start to understand his actions and see through them. He wants to be in the ‘IN-Crowd’ for all the wrong reasons and yet you totally understand it. He has his own little story, which is runs throughout the book and reveals some unexpected things.

The book starts with the death of Sasha Bowlder who apparently committed suicide. Since that day strange things have started to happen.
Sasha had been a childhood friend of Chase’s but when her mother married a wealthy man everything had changed between them and Chase is suddenly all alone.  That’s when he decided to do something.
He joined the football team, became friends with Zach and from that moment, he had had everything he ever wanted. He was IN! He had friends, girls and success. But the day Sasha Bowlder fell from the bridge it all started to fall apart.
Although you can’t imagine it getting worse, it does. Chase meets a mysterious girl, Ty and two girls who claim to be her cousins. He starts to spend a lot of time with her and gets into one misadventure after the other. It’s clearly all Ty’s fault and as I read the book I started to get really annoyed with her because I couldn’t understand why she would do such stupid things to Chase and why he would forgive her every time. The good aspect is that you never really get to know Ty and she’s still mysterious at the end of the book, which makes you anxious to read the sequel.
Will you find out more about her and her ‘cousins’? Why is she doing this?

Emily never intended to hurt her best friend Gabby, but Zach did all those sweet things to and with her and she couldn’t resist. While Gabby spends her winter holidays abroad with her parents, Emily and Zach start an affair which ends when Emily finally realises that Zach is just playing a game and making empty promises. The friendship between Em and Gabby suffers from this incident but slowly finds its way back.
But that’s not Emily’s only problem. It seems that someone is following her and there’s always the red orchid that seems to be there out of nowhere. What does that mean?
Throughout the unsettling time Emily’s male best friend JD is always with her. And guess what? – Yes, she suddenly has feelings for him! She opens her eyes and there he is ..
I think that this relationship kind of takes out the tension in a bad way.  You see it coming the first page he is mentioned. I was a little disappointed because I really liked the idea of Chase and Em together.
They are really getting along while they help each other through their misery.  Em gets to know the real Chase a little bit and in the end I think you can call them friends.
The furies (Ty, Ali and Meg) are here for a reason: To pass on a really important message, but will the receiver gets it?

I have a really divided opinion about the book.
On the one hand I wished there would’ve been more! More excitement, more build-up to a scene and more darkness. I think this book needs a clear direction.  It’s neither horror nor a romantic love story.
It’s in-between and I guess that’s what bothers me. You keep waiting for the big thing but it never comes.
 Also there were a few weak conversations.
Zach, that was Gabby. We have to be careful. She could have heard you! I mean, do you understand how crushed she would be if she had any idea what we were doing right now?”
[…]
“Em, yeah. We talked about this. No need for Gabby to know about us.”
On the other hand I really liked reading it. It was an easy book and everything made sense by the end. I like that there are still secrets and surprises at the end (though there not that big and you kind of see them coming) and even unresolved problems so that a little tension is still there and you kind of want to read the next book.
For a first book it’s a great idea and I hope that the story about the Furies is better explained in the sequel.
There’s one thing we can learn from this story: Our time is limited and we should be careful with our actions and our words because they might affect others.
So, if you want to try out something new than just the everyday YA books than it’s a good choice but I wouldn’t have overly high expectations.

playing hurt by Holly Schindler


Synopsis
Star basketball player Chelsea “Nitro” Keyes had the promise of a full ride to college – and everyone’s admiration in her hometown. But everything changed senior year, when she took a horrible fall during a game. Now a metal plate holds her together and she feels like a stranger in her own family.

As a graduation present, Chelsea’s dad springs for a three-week summer “boot camp” program at a northern Minnesota lake resort. There, she’s immediately drawn to her trainer, Clint, a nineteen-year-old ex-hockey player who’s haunted by his own traumatic past. As they grow close, Chelsea is torn between her feelings for Clint and her loyalty to her devoted boyfriend back home. Will an unexpected romance just end up causing Chelsea and Clint more pain – or finally heal their heartbreak?


My review
Playing hurt is a book about loss, love and self-confidence. Both of the main characters lost something they loved in their own way.
Chelsea has lost something she was very good at and something she could build up her future on but now that it’s gone, she doesn’t know who she is anymore.
Clint lost something he loved very much for something that was so important to him, that he stopped doing it because he thinks it was his fault.
They both have to live with the big changes in their life which they don’t know how to deal with, and they stop living their life like their used to.
Clint and Chelsea meet at this time of their lives and help each other to get up again and out of the shadows of their past.

Each chapter of the book is written from a different perspective. One time it’s Chelsea’s and the other time it’s Clint’s, which is really good because you get to know the characters better and see what’s inside their head in different situations.
I really liked getting to know them. The focus isn’t just on one person who tells the story, but two.

Chelsea is an 18-year-old girl who just graduated from high school. Before her accident she was on her way to college with more than one scholarship in her pocket. That all changed and now she’s without a perspective.
As a graduation gift her dad books a three-week summer “boot camp” at a resort in hopes of getting her out again, to do something,  even if it isn’t sport. During her time in the camp she finds back to herself again and falls for Clint even though she has a boyfriend, Gabe.  Soon they start  a secret affair.

Clint is a 19-year-old college student who has a summer job at the resort with his two best friends, and starts his own “boot camp” there.  He was a hockey player until his girlfriend died in a car accident, on her way to one of his games. Since then he hasn’t played any kind of team sport or dated anyone, but is still very athletic.

At the beginning of the story Chelsea has a difficult relationship with her father. Since her accident he seems distant and dismissive. Chelsea however hangs on her past as a basketball-player and how it used to be. She watches old videotapes even the tape of her accident over and over again. Gabe, her boyfriend seems to be the only one who can talk to her and whom she trusts and loves, which makes the separation during the boot camp ever worse.
But all that changes when she meets Clint.
I personally think that the upcoming relationship between the two of them is only based on the looks!  They’re attracted to one another as soon as they see each other and from that moment on it’s all physical. They do lots of activities to find the right one Chelsea is finally willing to do without being afraid. Chelsea and Clint spend every day together and become closer with each second.  There’s a lot of tension, especially because they’re not allowed to go out in the first place because he’s her trainer and she obviously has a boyfriend, but I missed the personal relationship at the beginning.  Clint knows Chelsea’s background story and why she behaves like she does, but she doesn’t know a thing about him. Sure, throughout the book you know everything is going to be fine and Chelsea will find out what happened to Clint, but that’s not enough for me. It’s not all about sex but every time they meet the outcome is always the same. They kiss and try to explore as many of each other body parts as possible.
At the beginning Clint seems like a reasonable guy but a few of his decisions and actions made me doubt him. When he finds out that Chelsea has a boyfriend he doesn’t react.  I got the feeling that it was her decision to make whether or not the relationship should go on and that he would just go along with it.  It’s nearly the same with Chelsea. She keeps saying in her head:  “Why am I doing this? I have Gabe. Gabe is sweet.” And other similar things but she doesn’t do anything to change the situation. 
Ok, I have to admit I’d rather read about Clint and Chelsea then Gabe and Chelsea, because he seems so boring even though she often describes him with the words ‘wonderful & perfect’. I assumed right up until the end that he would be the bad guy and would cheat on her.
What I’m trying to say here is: I don’t like the fact that she’s cheating, Clint doesn’t do anything to stop it and they just carry on because they can’t keep their hands of each other.

But it’s not all about their relationship even though it is a major point!
During their stay at the resort, Chelsea also gets the chance to talk to her father and they fix the problem between them, mostly because Clint encourages her to talk to her dad, finally.

They both overcome their fears.

I really like the ending because everyone comes to their senses and there’s a hint of a reunion.

So, in the end it’s an ‘OK’-book. If you can overlook a few things it’s actually very good. It’s well written, you get to know the characters a lot and everything seems to find its way where it belongs.
Maybe the book is a good example and we should take a step forward and NEVER LIVE TIMIDLY! Take a chance and see what happens, it always gets better

moonglass by Jessi Kirby


Synopsis
When Anna was little, she and her mother walked the beach together every day, looking for sea glass. But one night her mother walked into the ocean and never came out, leaving Anna with only memories – and a collection of ocean-tumbled glass.
Ten years later Anna’s father has accepted a job transfer, and Anna’s life is again swept up in a tide she can’t control. Despite her reluctance to move, Anna is slowly won over by the beachfront cottage, the gorgeous lifeguards, and early morning runs along the shore. But her new home is a place that holds long-buried history. It’s where her parents first met and fell in love, where strangers seem to know more about her family’s past than she does, and where she finds that the red piece of sea glass she wears around her neck has a history all its own. As Anna combs the beach for bits of glass scattered in the sand, she discovers that there may be more to her mother’s life and death than she and her father have been able to acknowledge.
The sea glass in Anna’s collection proves that time can smooth rough edges- but what about when the jagged hurt of loss remains as sharp as ever?

My review
As always I got drawn to this book by its cover and, after series of disappointing books, I finally found what I was looking for.  It took me two days to read and I loved it from beginning to end. Before I knew it I had already put it down with a little smile on my face.
It’s a wonderfully written first novel with just the right amount of drama, love and teenage life ‘problems’.
Anna (Louanna) Ryan is a 17-year-old girl who, at the age of seven, saw her mother kill herself in the ocean.
She now lives with her father and is a funny and natural young girl. Even though she seems strong on the outside and it appears to look like she knows exactly what to say and to do, she’s very unsure of herself. Over the years she has believed she was the reason her mother killed herself.

Tyler Evans is one of those cute, popular guys in town and later the boyfriend of Anna. He’s a local lifeguard and goes to the same school as Anna.  He’s gorgeous and confident without being so overly cocky. You think there might be something bad about him, which is both good and disappointing, because it turns out that he really is just one of the good guys.

Then there is Anna’s dad Joe (Joseph) Ryan. He’s the reason why they’re back in the town where Anna’s parents first met, and, where a lot of untold history hangs in the air.
He’s also the lifeguard supervisor. He and his best friend Andy are very funny. They both behave like teenagers sometimes and that makes them really likeable.
Moonglass is a book about a broken past that needs to be fixed and a future that needs to be lived. When Anna and her dad move back to the town where he spent all his teenage summers, a lot of unasked questions about the past and Anna’s mother reappear. The relationship between Anna and her father is very shallow at the beginning. They refuse to talk about important topics, or anything else that involves a heart-to-heart.

When I was reading the book I could literally picture the beach, the cottages, the warmth, the sun and the ocean. It makes you want to lie next to Anna on the beach and observe the cute lifeguards.
I could imagine the tossing water on the stormy night, the dangerous rocks or the runs with her cross-country team.


Anna and Tyler meet on the beach, where she tries to climb the rocks near the ocean and he tries to talk her out of it. After that she tries to get his attention but he refuses to see her, because her dad has told the other lifeguards to stay away from her. I personally think her dad overreacts but it gives the whole relationship that little something.
Though the book is more concentrating on other things than the connection between Tyler and Anna there are a few really sweet things I liked about it. On Anna’s first day at school her teacher calls her Louanna but she doesn’t like her real name and prefers to go by Anna. Later that day Tyler begins to call her Louanna, Ryan or little Ryan. Little things like that kept me reading the book because it was simple and funny. Initially they start to see each other secretly because of her dad and whilst their meetings they start to fall for one another.  At the end Joe realizes that Tyler is a good guy and invites him over officially.
I’d have loved to read more about Tyler, maybe some background information. There are some good rudiments but the author could have done more with it.

During their secret dates Tyler leads Anna through some abandoned cottages, one of which was her mother’s. On one night Anna finally decides to have a look around at her mother’s place.
After that Anna’s feelings about her mother overwhelm her and she doesn’t know how to handle them. This event finally leads to the munch needed talk with her father. During the talk they both approach each other emotionally but the author makes it clear that it will take a while.

This book has lots of major and minor parts you’ll remember, love and just want to experience yourself. It’s not a new story but it is fresh and lightly written so that it’s hard to put away.
Even the ‘little’ characters like Anna’s new friends: Ashley and Jillian are so different to each and individuals who make the story flow smoothly.

Throughout the book new relationships are developing and some are ending. I liked the setup, the characters and the story.
All in all I think it’s a great book and very easy to read. It’s not just for your summer holidays but for any other day of the week!
It’s sad, funny, dramatic and joyful all in one-well packed!
You’ll fall in love with those characters and their easiness in life and even with their dramatic story.

Go and buy it!

illuminated by Erica Orloff


Synopsis
Some loves are not meant to last.
Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history.  Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story - and hers - takes on another life.  For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret hidden within the pages.  The attraction between the two is undeniable. And as the truth behind the diary - and that of Heloise and Abelard’s ancient romance-is unveiled, their romance becomes all-consuming. Will their love-a love that burns bright as a shooting star-flame out? Or will there star-crossed lovers be able to defy history?
 My review
I didn’t know what do expect from this book besides a beautiful cover, but when I read the first few pages it wasn’t at all what I thought it would be.  
When I read the blurb I thought this could be a great story for a cold winter day to snuggle into my bed and dream of a cute love story. In the end, I was a little disappointed because I had really high expectations.

Romeo and Juliet.  - A great dramatic story that everybody is fascinated by.
Heloise and Abelard.-  I have to confess, it was the first time I had ever heard of them but still their story is much more fascinating than Callie and August’s story.



Callie is a loveable, smart young girl. She’s just the perfect teenage daughter every parent would love to have and a very loyal friend.  Her mother died of cancer and her dad doesn’t seem to understand her.  That leads us to her uncle Harry.

Harry is her gay uncle, living in New York. He’s really into his work but also loves Callie like his own daughter. He’s the brother of her dead mother.  Every summer holiday Callie spends her time with her uncle and his partner.

Then there’s August. Described as mysterious and drop-dead gorgeous, August is the handsome son of Dr. Sokolov.  

Callie and August meet at the very beginning of the book and as soon as they met they fall for each other even though they don’t know a thing about one another! It would be great to read more about the development of their relationship but it’s just there.  They fall in love, pretty fast and they spend their time with searching for the ‘Book of Hours,. That’s it. For me, it didn’t feel like a ‘forever’ relationship. 
August is described as a very sexy and perfect guy but honestly, I couldn’t imagine him like this. It would be nice to have given him some character, some rough edges. All we get is this “perfect” boy and with him everything seems so easy.
It’s a great story and a brilliant idea. Two teenage kids chasing after a long forgotten story.  But in all the drama about the found ‘Book of Hours, the author forgot to ‘get real’ with the main characters or care about the other events that are happening around Callie.

There were potentially two good parts in the book but the author didn’t really go through with it.
At the beginning there’s the talk about a “Tome Raider” and how dangerous he could be. He came in once, when he stole some research papers from Dr. Sokolov but that’s it. Even the trip to Paris wasn’t great to read, though they had those mysterious dreams and finally found the book.


I wanted to like this book, dream about it and not be able to put it down but it was the opposite. Sometimes I had to force myself to read it because I really don’t like not finishing a book. It wasn’t the bad writing. The book was just very unemotional. The author tried, but it wasn’t there.
All in all I think it’s an OK-book. If you need anything for a boring holiday, it’s yours. But there were too many things I didn’t like to let me really concentrate on the good parts.
It simply didn’t thrill me!

The time of my life

"You never forget about things you've done that you know you shouldn't have done."
Time of my life, Cecelia Ahern


Well, I finally made my decision to join the world of the blogosphere. For now, it's just a quick and warm welcome but soon I hope to post some reviews of books I'm reading.
