Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2016

Uncategorized | April 3, 2016

March 2016: the quiet month I started off well in March – I was back to reading, back to blogging, it seemed like I actually managed to schedule a post in advance a couple times and maybe could even hold to my schedule – but that got derailed. My grandmother passed away this month, and, well, that put […]

January 2015: In Which I MOVED Damn, it’s already February! As you may have noticed, the blog was pretty quiet in January, because I MOVED. This was very very tiring and stressful and blogging just shifted down the priorities list. But I’m picking things back up for February and hopefully I won’t be overwhelmed with all the things […]

Sometimes I watch the movie/TV show first

Sometimes I watch the movie/TV show first

Uncategorized | December 17, 2014

Among us hardcore readers, I know there is a bit of a stigma against people who watch the movie or TV show first. Well, I’m gonna just say it: sometimes I do. And I don’t feel like there’s anything wrong with that – and I wish the judgment would stop. Why watch first?! I’ve confessed before that I […]

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I’m not gonna lie, this is a pretty tough topic for me. A lot of the real locations in books that I’ve read that are the most majestic, I’ve already been to. (Think Paris, London, New York…) And a […]

Book Review: The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

Book Review: The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

Book Reviews | August 13, 2012

Wow. I can’t really believe I finished reading it. Granted, some of the appendices I skipped. But I mean, why would I read about the family trees, calendars, pronunciations? Heh, Tolkien was a bit optimistic about his readers there, but they’re not called appendices for nothing. Once again, the first half, Book 5, was amazing. It slowed down […]

Quite a bit better than The Fellowship of the Ring. I just enjoyed it a lot more, despite the fact that it took me like 3 times longer to read. But hey, whatever, it’s vacation, there’s no rush.

Oh hello there. Do not judge me for never having read this before. I feel guilty enough as it is. But here I am, reading the most classic fantasy series ever. I tried multiple times before to get into it but each time lost interest. Not this time. I found it surprisingly easy to read, while I had […]
