Wishlist #2. Books books books.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend! David will play with his band tonight and I am so excited to see him on stage again. They play with two other bands but their band is the headliner which totally makes sense because they are the best. 

I am waiting for the mail to come because I want to start reading the two new books I ordered. One about Iceland and one about carnism. You can read about them here.

I have to admit that I love to stare at my bookshelves. It just makes me happy to see my collection of books. Maybe that's crazy, I don't know. But I always feel comfortable when I have a lot of books around. 
That's why my wishlist for books is a very long one. 

I want to show you some books I am really excited about. These will be the next ones I'll buy. 

Eiseskälte by Arnaldur Indridason

                                                                      source

The latest crime novel by Arnaldur Indridason . I hate that I have to be patient and wait until November 16th. That's the day it will get published and that's also the day I will start reading it. Indridason is under the top 5 of my favorite writers so I am really excited about this. The description sounds very promising. Detective Erlendur travels to the place where he grew up to find out more about his brother who vanished when they were kids.
It also makes me a little sad because this will be the last novel of the detective Erlendur series. What will happen?

Vegan Cupcakes by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

                                                                   source

My last attempts to bake cupcakes were a disaster and that's why I decided that I need professional help. The thing is: I don't like to follow recipes. And that's fine when you cook. But not so much when you bake. It won't taste good. Trust me. I tried it several times.

The encyclopedia of serial killers by MIchael Newton

                                                                     source

Thank you Amanda for the recommendation! :) I am glad you like reading about serial killers as much as I do.
She recommended several serial killer books to me and I can't wait to check them out. This topic fascinates me a lot. 

Cat versus Human by Jasmine Surovec

                                                                 source

If you are a crazy cat lady like me you have to check out her comics here. She always makes me laugh. Every time I see a new one I am totally excited and I can only agree with her observations about our feline friends. 

Some we love, some we hate, some we eat by Hal Herzog

                                                                   source

I am very interesting in this topic and I can't wait to start reading the other book I got about it. After I finished that I will definitely purchase this book because it looks very promising too. 

Am Abend des Mordes by Hakan Nesser

                                                                     source

I love Nesser's books. Every single one of them. This is the last book of the inspector Barbarotti series and it will get published October 1st. So I probably won't talk at all that day. I don't know what Nesser's future plans are. I was devastated when he finished his Van Veeteren series and now this is already the last book of the Barbarotti series? I can't believe it. I really hope he won't die! I am SO excited to start reading this.

What's on your wish list? Any recommendations? 

My books just arrived! Yay! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I have heard really good things about that cupcake book! I don't have an oven so I can't really bake but I do enjoy cupcakes!

    Cookbooks are the only paper books I buy anymore, along with a few travel books. I want to get the rest of Ani Phyo's raw vegan cookbooks!

    1. Yeah, I know what you mean. I should not experiment with the recipes so much I guess. :)

  6. I have about a dozen books on serial killers. My mom always thought I was so strange for being interested in those types of books but the psychology behind them is so fascinating. You can bet I'll be looking this one up asap :)

    1. Awesome! You like serial killers too! :) Love it! And you are so right, the psychology behind it is very fascinating! David asked me if I am dangerous when I told him about it.
