***spoilers possible This month was EXTREMELY slow because I went on vacation. And contrary to my belief, I found basically zero time to read. I didn't pack any physical books (except the two for the Goodreads give-away-day) and was reliant on my Kindle, which (of course) died on my long flight. Thus, I… Continue reading September mood longs for breezy fall nights
Woohoo!!!! It is readathon month! Dewey's has been doing an amazing countdown, which I, unfortunately, couldn't participate in as I spent most of September abroad in Germany. Nevertheless, I am stoked because 1) I love 24-hour readathons and 2) it is Dewey's 10 year anniversary! And of course, I will be supporting one of my… Continue reading It’s time for another Dewey’s readathon!
Well hello there! I guess it's time for a quick reminder (albeit late) that today is a special day - Goodreads turns 10. In honor of this anniversary, the excellent people at Goodreads encourage everyone to be a book fairy today. They partnered with The Book Fairies for this fun endeavor and declared today to be… Continue reading Goodreads turns 10!
It feels like fall in my neck of the woods. I am sitting here with my morning coffee and getting ready to start another bout of 50-minute reading sprints (*thank you, Facebook reading buddies for this inspiration) and I am really getting excited about the most important season of the year, the spooky season. To… Continue reading RIP XII – it will get spoo(boohoo)ky!
***spoilers possible August. Another one for the books 😉 .... I have completed 6 books of varying difficulty levels and lengths - it is only 6 because I have been trying to make my way through Stephen King's IT ... and let me tell ya, that book is kicking my butt. I adore it so… Continue reading August brings summer night readings
***spoilers possible How is it possible that July has come and gone already? In the blink of an eye isn't even accurate anymore. My reading quota has definitely slowed down in the past few months, and July had an additional "hiccup". I bought a spinning wheel! Thus, in addition, to being distracted with new… Continue reading The force of July
***spoilers possible Another slow month for me but it contained some really, really good books! Kafka on the Shore (Haruki Murakami) ♠♠♠♠♠ What a read - it was confusing, magical, airy, deep, surreal, and utterly accurate at the same time. Kafka on the Shore swept me off my feet. I am a huge… Continue reading Snug in a rug like a JUNEbug
***spoilers possible May has been a fairly slow reading month for me. I had a lot of work commitments and a few knitting projects kept me occupied during my time off. Lumberjanes (Noelle Stevenson) ♠♠♠♠ I didn't like this one quite as much as the previous ones but Noelle Stevenson is… Continue reading Slow May has been slow
***spoilers possible As you can see, I read a lot of books this month - Dewey's readathon took place and that always makes me read several graphic novels in between other fiction books in order to stay awake. 24 hours are long! The Underground Railroad (Colston White) ♠♠ Ugh! The more I… Continue reading April is for reading fools
Thoughts and musings Aaaaand this concludes another successful 24hr-readathon! I made it 22 hours but unfortunately could not push myself any further BUT this is the first time, I did not nap but read continuously (minus a few traveling breaks to go to the coffee shop for example). I am actually quite happy with my accomplishments… Continue reading Aufwiedersehen
