Goodreads Monday #1

Today I was very excited about my latest addition to the Mt.TBR, so much so that I decided to join in on the Goodreads Mondays. It is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turner, and it is really simple. Pick a book from the TBR and explain why you want to read it. My last new book... Continue Reading →

Nightingale: London 1966

GoodReads ★★★★ I only found out about these today! I have been a fan of the Rivers of London series for years and I was very pleased to find several ultra short stories that tie in to the series. I'm trying to spread reading them at least a little.I much enjoy it when authors take... Continue Reading →

Foxglove Summer

GoodReads ★★★★ Every year, the new PC Grant novel (or Rivers of London novel as I tend to call them) is one of my most anticipated reads. Also, I need to wait for more than half a year until the right paperback edition is published (height 19,7 cm; I mean even the MMP (mass market... Continue Reading →

Broken Homes

GoodReads "It's a police mantra that all members of the public are guilty of something, but some members of the public are more guilty than others"Peter Grant in Broken Homes ★★★★ Broken Homes is the fourth PC Grant (though I keep calling this series Rivers of London) novel, the next book Foxglove Summer is due...

Whispers Under Ground

GoodReads ★★★★ In Peter Grant's third adventure, the ethnically challenged wizard-apprentice detective constable is quite literally driven to the dark depths of London as he is trying to solve the murder on the son of an American senator which may involve some weird shit (e.g. Magic)...I'm not too familiar with Urban Fantasy, but from what...

Moon Over Soho

GoodReads ★★★ I had really enjoyed reading the first book of this series, Rivers of London (also known as Midnight Riot), so I was obviously also very curious to this second book, Moon over Soho.Unfortunately I didn't like it as much as I liked the first book. Perhaps it was because I don't know enough... Continue Reading →

Rivers of London

GoodReads ★★★★★ I first came across this book in Aachen, Germany, and it drew my attention almost immediately. Normally I'm not really a fantasy reader, let alone the even more specific terms like urban fantasy. I liked the writing style from what I read in the bookshop, and made a mental note of it. Still,... Continue Reading →

Cry Fox

GoodReads ★★★★ It is no secret I'm a fan of the Rivers of London series and one of the things I like is the multiple ways in which the story is told, e.g. here the graphic novel. Like its predecessors it is good in keeping you entertained while waiting for the next novel in the... Continue Reading →

The Hanging Tree

GoodReads ★★★★ One of the things I really worry too much about when it comes to books is their height. I want my series to fit together and have on occasions taken a ruler into the bookstore to make sure I bought the right one. It completely beats me why there are so many different... Continue Reading →

Detective Stories

GoodReads ★★★★ The Rivers of London/Peter Grant is one of my favorite ongoing series and one of the things I like about it is the many different ways the stories are being told (novels, shorts, comics and there is also a free audio-exclusive). Also, it is British.Detective stories includes four short stories of Peter's Falcon... Continue Reading →

A Rare Book Of Cunning Device

GoodReads ★★★★ A Rare Book of Cunning Device is a short audiobook free on Audible that is a part of the ever expanding universe around PC Peter Grant and his 'Falcon' adventures. I like how the series is spread across all different ways of reading (besides the main books and some short stories, the graphic... Continue Reading →

Black Mould

GoodReads ★★★★ I was looking forward to this so much I pre-ordered it three months in advance (something I'm not wont to do). When it finally arrived I was looking for a particular good moment to sit down with it and read it in one go.The comics of Rivers of London are a nice addition... Continue Reading →
