It's already time to show you my STS. STS is a meme created by Tynga. And here we show each other our new books.
Petra at a RAK . That is Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs. And the other book I got is Until I Die by Amy Plum. And I really can tell you that Until I Die is such a great book. I like it a lot. :D
And what kind of books did you get this week?

Title: The Iron King
Author: Julie Kagawa
Series: Iron Fey
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Romance, Paranormal, Adventure
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined. Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
This story is about Meghan Chase, an almost 16 year old girl who lives with her family on a farm. When her little brother is kidnapped by fairies, she and her best friend Puck try to rescue him out of the NeverNever, the world of fey. The NeverNever is a really magical, mystical place created by stories of people. A lot of the mythical characters are based on the story of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' by Shakespeare. I never read this book, but these characters are really great.
Like Puck for example, who is really funny and a real friend to Meghan. And Meghan, she does everything in her power to rescue her brother. But I never got a real bond with these characters. And that bothers me a lot. They were great but I didn’t get the feeling that I get with characters in other books I read.
What also bothered me, was the first part of this book. It was really slow and took me a long time to read. But when I got through the first 200-something pages it really got better and better.
That’s the reason I want to read 'The Iron Daughter'. And because I really like the fairy world. Because Kagawa did a great job by creating this world. And I really hope that I get a chance to really get a bond with these characters.

It's a little bit stupid, but my last post was also a STS. I've got such a busy week, with a lot of great things to do. Like visits from my friends, but I also visit my sister, her fiancé and my little nephew. That was a lot of fun. Because I am his aunt, I got the fun parts, like baking cookies and having fun in the playground :D. And that's not it, I also gave my (little) brother (for his birthday) a ticket for the zoo in Rotterdam. So saturday we got to the zoo. And it was a lot of fun and what a beautiful animals. :D And sunday it was mothers day. So I spend the day with my parents.
Busy! Busy! Busy!
But I got also a few new books. Because monday (a week ago) I was shopping with one of my friends and one of the bookstores in Nijmegen has a bige sale. Normaly they don't have any books I like. But this time I got Blood bound by Patricia Briggs and Dead as a doornail by Charlaine Harris. I know its nr. 5 of a serie. But that doesn't matter, because now I got an excuse to buy the other 4 :D
And there was also a book that came with the mail. And that is Endure by Carrie Jones. I really like my books but I still don't got the time to read them :(
What kind of books did you got this week?
