Random Thursday! Fun summer reads. Books, magazines, more books.

Hallo meine Lieben,

time for more randoms. This link up is so much fun, thank you so much LinEm and Sarah! By the way, you can join here
Okay, enough links....this week's topic is....



In case you've read my blog before you already know that I am a huge book worm so this topic is fantastic. I'll show you what I am currently reading...

VegNews.

I heard about that magazine last week and was able to find it at Barnes & Noble. I was so happy because there was only one issue left and I got it. I am in love. This magazine is fantastic. It contains recipes but also great articles about all kinds of vegetarian/vegan topics. There is an article about vegan wedding parties in this issue and it was so much fun to read about it. Can't wait for the next issue!

Neon.


                                                                      source

That's a German magazine but my Dad sent me the last issue. He knows how much I love it. It's a lifestyle magazine and it covers all kinds of topics: politics, business, education, love, fashion, job, friendship etc. 

The devil she knows.

I am a huge fan of crime novels, the bloodier the better, I love all the suspense. David picked out this one for me and I have to say: he did a great job! There are so many great book out there but I have to say that mysteries and crime novels will always be my #1. 

Why we love dogs, eat pigs and wear cows.

I have to say that I haven't started to read this yet. I ordered it yesterday and now I can't wait for it to arrive. I have heard a lot about this book and I was interested it in for a while and now I finally ordered it. I guess this should be interesting for everybody, not just for vegetarians or vegans. 

Iceland (Lonely Planet country guide)



Another book I ordered yesterday. I admit that I am a little obsessed with that country and I really hope that we will be able to travel there soon. I would move to Iceland. Right now. I want to learn more about the country and I can't wait to start reading.

What are you currently reading?
Any recommendations?

Have a lovely Thursday!

  3. Oooh I'll have to check out VegNews! I'm usually wary of veggie publications because I feel like a lot are for beginners and state the obvious, but since you're a long time vegetarian (vegan?) too, I know it must be good. :)

  6. It's so awesome that they have a magazine just for vegan/vegetarians. OMG, I about squealed when I read that you liked bloody crime novels cause so do I! The reason I havent really been reading lately is because I havent found a crime type book thats caught my eye...until now.

    Thanks for recommending 'Th Devil She Knows', and kudos to your husband for picking out such a bad ass book.

    1. Yeah, David has a pretty good taste! I got two books from him for my birthday and they are both great!
      You should really check out the books by Henning Mankell, Ake Edwardson, Arnaldur Indridason and Hakan Nesser. I am sure you would like them!

  7. I want that VegNews magazine in Germany too! I don't know if we have any magazines like this at all. I'll have to check it out :)
    I rarely buy any magazines here and if it's not something about horses ;) it's usually the Neon too! That's a great one. So sweet your Dad sent it to you.
    Oh I wish I didn' have to read text books right now - I want to read the ones you introduced to us, they all sound great. I guess it'll just have to wait for a while and then I'll read them - already looking forward to it :)

    Have a wonderful day!
    Ich drücke Dich, liebste Katrin.

      Have a wonderful weekend, Ich drück Dich!

  8. I saw that you were a fan of Henning Mankell novels and wanted to let you know that I just finished the first Kurt Wallander novel today. Do you recommend reading the entire series?

    Replies
    1. YEAH! I love that series and I love Kurt Wallander. I definitely recommend reading the entire series. It gets better and better! Do you like the first book?

      Delete
    2. I did like the first book. It moves a little bit slow in the beginning so it's good to know that the series gets better. It's funny because right when I was thinking to myself "how come detectives are always divorced or single," Kurt asked the same thing in the novel

      Delete
    3. Haha, yeah, I loved that too. :) And it gets so much better, you should definitely read all of the books. :)) I started to love Kurt a lot!
