It is probably not considered unusual by this point that my monthly reading list contains only one book. Rather than letting this bother me, I will see it as an opportunity to spend a little more space on this little paperback.
Prepare yourself for lists of adjectives. (more…)
Well, I’m not quite sure how August is here already, but regardless, here is my reading update. (more…)
I’m still taking it easy. Rather than force myself to read, and stress myself into apathy again, I’m taking small steps. Don’t worry though, I’m getting better. Just careful not to overdo it.
Yet again this seems to have turned into an every-second-month post. I actually considered whether I should change the series to only update every two months, if that is what seems more natural. However, I’ve decided that it was a coincidence that it happened twice in a row. I couldn’t post September’s update, because my laptop was in the shop for a hard drive transplant. I didn’t post November’s update due to NaNoWriMo and pure exhaustion. It was circumstantial why this happened. So these posts will continue the same way they have before. I really enjoy writing them and I hope someone enjoys reading them.
So let’s move on to the exciting stuff.
Hey guys, so we’re doing things a little differently today. You may remember that I took an unexpected blog hiatus when my almost-five-year-old laptop’s hard drive failed. Last when I posted my laptop was still in for repairs and I didn’t know how much data I was going to lose. (more…)

How did I manage to read any books last month, on top of writing and the Shakespeare cartoons? Well, I did fail at the writing and the cartoons were late a couple of times, that’s how. (more…)
A strange combination of literary parody, epic high fantasy finales and pretentious teens. (more…)
I thought a chart of all the arguments surrounding the books vs ebooks debate might come in handy.
Which contains more than you might expect, given that November was NaNoWriMo.
A return to old-fashioned fantasy after the bleak reality of war, nightmares and dystopia of the last couple of months.
Or book actually. But at 550 pages, Wool by Hugh Howey quite fills up the noun “book”. (more…)
So last week I started talking about book banning. This week is the yearly Banned Books Week when book lovers from all over the world celebrate free speech. Far too many books are still banned and/or challenged worldwide every year. If you believe in free speech you cannot believe in book banning as well. But why does it still happen? (more…)
