Sect 7 Who am I

Keyword: The sect

Just a little bit of book browsing and an even smaller yield of book titles that interest me this month.

The third and final part of “Die Sekt” is now available, but I'm still on hold. I have decided to wait for final reviews, also because I am not sure whether this topic can captivate me across three books. CoDex 1962, on the other hand, sounds so bizarre that it could be a good story, but it could also go completely wrong. Maybe I just find the book cover appealing, I'm not sure about that. However, at the moment I do not feel like experimenting while reading and so I will probably keep my hands off that for now. And that's it. Fortunately, I have a well-stocked pile of unread books that I can wholeheartedly refer to. But I'm a little irritated.
