Rezension: Alles zu meiner Zeit von Dr. Piers Steel

Nieder mit der Aufschieberitis

Trödeln ist menschlich, trödeln gehört dazu und eigentlich trödelt jeder mal. Ob es die Steuererklärung ist oder das noch immer nicht gekündigte Zeitungs-Abo - oft schieben wir unangenehme Erledigungen auf und haben ein schlechtes Gefühl dabei.
Warum wir trödeln, was dann bei uns im Gehirn passiert und wie wir diesem natürlichen Verhalten doch gegensteuern können, weiß Dr. Piers Steel zu berichten - eine Koryphäe auf diesem Gebiet, sowohl als Wissenschaftler als auch privat.

Rezension: Angelfall von Susan Ee

It has been six weeks since the angels returned to earth and destroyed the world as we know it.
When the fly away with a helpless little girl, her sister Penryn will do anything to get her back ...

It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister, Penryn, will do anything to get her back.

Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.

Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where Penryn will risk everything to rescue her sister, and Raffe will put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.
