Okay, here I am again! I will give it another try. Maybe this year I will make it to 100.
I already am exciting and looking forward to a lot of good books :)

Jan 5, 2014, 2:06 pm

And here it goes:

1) Nina Harper - Succubus in the City (definitely not one of the good ones I'm afraid)
2) Lilian Jackson Braun - Die Katze, die Applaus bekam (as always a pleasure read for me)

Hi Jen. I wish you good luck with your reading challenge & am looking forward to what you will be reading.

Thank you rainpebble. Good luck to you too!

I finished another one of Lilian Jackson Brauns books. I know 'kitty crime' (how my husband ccalls it) is everyones cup of tea, but I just love them. Her stories always manage to make me smile and I love the picture she paints of the little town the books are set in. After reading so many of this series, reading another always feels like coming back to old friends. It might sound silly, but it's a bit like home I guess.

5) Lilian Jackson Braun - Die Katze, die Bananen stahl

And I should think that 'kitty crime' would be just the thing when one has the blues or perhaps suffers from depression.
BTW, I love your hubby's terminology..........'kitty crime'. How many are there anyway?

There are 30 in this series. So far I've got 22, 8 I am still looking for. Of course I had to decide I like the old editions best, the ones that have been out of print for a while. But hunting them down is half the fun, always get super excited when I can get my hands on another one.

I used to read the Lilian Jackson Braun books all the time and loved them. Haven't picked one up in years, but they're worth a revisit.

I just found 3 more on ebay, can't wait for them to get here :-)

7) Charlotte Roche - Feuchtgebiete

Honestly, i am not sure what to think of this book.
The story is told by 18 year old Helen who ended up in the hospital after she had a little accident shaving her butt. She talks openly about her body and topics usually not talked about.
It definitly is like nothing i ever read before. I did get the feeling though that the author set down with the simple desire to write a book that will disgust people, shock them. With every chapter it felt like she tried to be more repulsive then in the one before.
But like always, it is a matter of taste. Unfortunately this book did not meet mine but i was an interesting excursion into a different kind of novel.

Ah, is this the one where listeners fainted during book readings by the author? I think I'm steering clear of it, at any rate.

Jan 22, 2014, 12:56 am

Yes, I tried to read that one a while ago. Gave up pretty quickly on it though. Wetlands in English.

Jan 26, 2014, 6:58 am

Thats the one! I was tempted to put the book down and not touch it again, but then again, so far I finished every book I started.
I have another one by her at home, but I think I need to take a break before I start it.

At the moment I am reading Charles de Lint again. Not quite done yet, but so far I enjoyed every book I picked up by him and it is the same with this one. But more about that when I am done

Absolutely nothing wrong with reading less than 100 books! It's definitely not a requirement to be here, or anything. (Hurrah for kitty crime! I should try that series one day...)
