Thanks for the post and the links, Caroline! Have to catch up on so many reviews! Happy reading during week 3 🙂
My pleasure. It was another stunning week. I just started writing the Drvenkar post btw. I’ll send you an e-mail this evening.
Looking forward to your Drvenkar post and your email, Caroline. I don’t know whether I can post the Drvenkar book review tomorrow, because I haven’t been able to finish the book yet. I will post it as soon as I finish the book. I hope it is okay.
Of course it is OK. I hope you like it. I’ll post tomorrow.
Looking forward to reading your thoughts on it, Caroline. I am liking it till now.
I’m glad, I was afraid you might not and that’s why you didn’t finsih.
Another good list of links – keep up the good work everyone 🙂
And there should be many more coming… I suppose you’ll skip genre week – thematically – but that’s fine.
Wow! this is amazing. I finally finished Mesmerized, now I need to collect my thoughts and write my post.
I’m looking forward to that post. I hope you liked it.
Sooo many good links here, I completely love exploring them! Great project! Today I have googled some German Science Fiction, and I’m preparing for the genre week =)
I’m looking forward to your Sci-fi finds. i don’t think I’ve ever read a German science fiction novel. It will be great to read about it.
Me too! I know quite a lot of good Sci-Fi, but no German authors. So I’m looking forward to it myself!
I’m very curious. I hope they are good.
I’ve read a German Sci-Fi novel http://irrelevant-scribble.blogspot.cz/2012/11/der-elfenbeinturm-ivory-tower-by.html and I’m finishing a book of short stories of different German authors of the genre, but I’m not sure I’ll have enough time to write about all of them. But now I can say: “German Sci-Fi exists”! It’s very political and philosophical, but it’s original and worth reading.
Thanks a lot Arenel. That’s very good to know. I’m looking forward to reading your review. Maybe you could just do a post on the whole collection, indicating a few names, without finishing it?
Well, I’ll try to, if I have some time in the evening =) I’d like to share, because some of them are just great. Maybe I’ll choose only the ones I liked most =)
That’s never a bad approach with a short story collection. It allows others to watch out for the names and discover new writers.
Finally finished the review. Was thankful that I know German, or I would have never found the proper names 😉 http://irrelevant-scribble.blogspot.cz/2012/11/short-sci-fi-stories-by-german-authors.html
Great, Arenel, I’m very curious to see what authors you found.
Way to go, folks! Well done!
It’s so great, isn’t it?
Thanks for the link Caroline – I’m a bit out of the loop but delighted to see another German literature month – I look forward to catching up on these reviews and no doubt adding to my TBR list!
You’re welcome. I wasn’t sure whether it was meant for this event or not but thought it does fit. 🙂
Many thanks for mention in the links all the best stu
You’re welcome and as soon as I get the time I’ll visit.
Indeed lots of reviews to read!
Yes, there really are a lot. I’m happy about this enthusiasm.
A remarkable achievement. You and Lizzie must be very proud of it
We are, yes, it’s nice to see all the effort and ethusiasm.
An impressive list! I was thinking I didn’t have anything to share, but I forgot about my short story reading! 🙂 This weekend I’ll be reading Undine–it’s a bit longer than the last so will have to start tonight I think. Are you reading only German-language books this month?
I just started to cheat and will even post on it next week as I received Fahrenheit 451 from the Folio Society. 🙂
Caroline, I shall erase your last comment from my mind. 🙂
Mind, you couldn’t have chosen a better book/publisher combo.
You caught me! You would have anyway as I’ll post the review soon. I love these books, It’s my first one and I like Bradbury. I’m glad I am forgiven. 🙂
Great to see so many people taking part! I reviewed The Cow this week: http://www.farmlanebooks.co.uk/2012/the-cow-by-beat-sterchi/
Hopefully I’ll squueze in another German book before the end of the month too.
How did I not see that? I need to scan my reader more carefully. I owe you a thank you btw – thanks to my comment on your Bradbury book I received a copy of Fahrenheit 451 and am reading it. During German Literature Month. Shame on me.
Thanks for the link.
Good to hear that you’ve got a copy of 451. I hope you enjoy it more than I did,
I know that you didn’t like it all that much but for some reason your review still put me in the mood to read it right away. And that’s what I’m doing but I’m not very advanced yet.
Another week of fabulous links! So many great posts to check out – thank you!!
It’s really amazing and so many interesting titles.
Thank you for the link back! This is a very impressive list of posts. I am so glad that German Lit Month is doing so well.
Thanks, Iris, it really is doing well. It’s great. And the posts are even more diverse than last year.
