On My Shelf #9

On My Shelf

On My Shelf is an original feature inspired by the On My Shelf tag. Each time I will take 5 random books from my shelves and tell you about them (how I got them, what I think of them etc.), and if they are in Dutch I will write a small synopsis of them.
I will roll some dice to find out which books it will be.

The Selection (The Selection #1) by Kiera Cass

I bought this book because I heard a lot of things about the series. The book itself disappointed me, it felt like I was reading the script of a reality series (which I hate btw). I read it during my week of holiday doing volunteer work and the next year I read the next one. I don’t think I learned anything from the disappointment.

City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4) by Cassandra Clare

I bought this one, because I liked the first three parts. I still don’t know whether I like the new parts. I will have to reread this one soon, also to understand somethings that happen in Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Jump Cut by Max Allan Collins

Jump Cut is a book in the Criminal Minds universe. I only recently bought it and so I have not had the time to read it. I think it will be an interesting one, because I really like Criminal Minds and the other books I read from Max Allan Collins where great.

Ster (Stardust) by Neil Gaiman

I got this book as a present together with the dvd of the movie, it is the Dutch version though. And since my Dutch has never been that great I thought the whole book long they were traveling on a squirrel (eekhoorn) instead of a unicorn (eenhoorn) (Yes I did not watch the movie before finishing the book) and only figured it our when the squirrel used its horn to penetrate a goat. So, yeah…

Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

I first watched the mini series on this book and loved it, the story, the scenery and the characters. So I bought the book, I also got a Dutch copy of the book that came with the dvd box of the series. I loved the book too, it is beautifully written and completes the mini series.

Do you have any books where you misread something?
I hope you enjoy my weekly rants on my books. If you have some suggestion for me what to buy next, let me know in the comments or contact me!

For now, let books enrich your life!
