So another week is over, which always blows my mind on Sundays, every day goes by within seconds! So I finally started reading again this week, even though it wasn’t much, I still finished reading 2 books. Other than that I have been trying to get stuff done for work and school.
Eternity’s Echoes by Evan Hirson
“Aaron was a promising software designer with an upcoming company. He shared a quaint house on the outskirts of town with his best friends; another young man and two girls. They’d known each other since school, and lived together peacefully for years with few problems. Travis the newcomer however had a dark way about him, and all of Aaron’s attempts to get along with him had failed. But just as the household began to settle down again, a strange device with a peculiar attitude entered their lives. Would it fulfill all of their dreams, or instead become a curse?”
So I was contacted by the author to review this book and I accepted, there will still be a full review on this so I will be short on my thoughts. Overall I enjoyed reading this book, I feel that the beginning is better developed than the ending. The ending was a lot of information together, I felt that if every event was better explained I would have really loved it.

The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro
“Watson and Holmes: A match made in disaster. Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes are looking for a winter-break reprieve after a fall semester that almost got them killed. But Charlotte isn’t the only Holmes with secrets, and the mood at her family’s Sussex estate is palpably tense. On top of everything else, Holmes and Watson could be becoming more than friends—but still, the darkness in Charlotte’s past is a wall between them. A distraction arises soon enough, because Charlotte’s beloved uncle Leander goes missing from the estate—after being oddly private about his latest assignment in a German art forgery ring. The game is afoot once again, and Charlotte is single-minded in her pursuit. Their first stop? Berlin. Their first contact? August Moriarty (formerly Charlotte’s obsession, currently believed by most to be dead), whose powerful family has been ripping off famous paintings for the last hundred years. But as they follow the gritty underground scene in Berlin to glittering art houses in Prague, Holmes and Watson begin to realize that this is a much more complicated case than a disappearance. Much more dangerous, too. What they learn might change everything they know about their families, themselves, and each other.”
I enjoyed the sequel more than the first installment of this series, so that is great. I listened to the audiobook for this and there are a few chapters with Charlotte’s voice, from her POV, which I loved. I think I would love this series more if it were from Charlotte’s POV instead of Jamie’s, I really would love to see the way she thinks in every situation. I enjoyed the angsty teenage romance in here as well, I will read/listen the conclusion to this series soon.

Momo – It was his 1st birthday this Sunday and I can’t believe he is already a year!! This little guys means so much to me, I can literally put him on this list every week.
Off the shoulder tops – I bought two new tops which are of the shoulder and I am in love with this fashion.
Stamp card – I filled my whole stamp card of my favorite bookstore, which meant that I could go out of the bookstore with €40,- of books without paying for them, so yeah I was pretty happy.
