I think I’ve got an e-book problem

I think I might’ve reached some kind of anti-eBook phase. Each time I’m starting to read one I instantly want to switch to paper or even audio! It feels strange and it messes up my review copies reading progress. I’m not happy :/

Did you ever feel something like that?

Normally I’d be happy with this state, but I have several ebooks I’d like to finish, especially “Hero” and I simply can’t do it. Continue reading “I think I’ve got an e-book problem”

What happened in December – a short monthly summary

I’ve been pushing this post further and further and I don’t really have a reason for that other than I already posted so many summaries, short review, etc that Don’t have much more to add but let’s see if I have some curiosities left :).

The bookish statistics

  • Finished 9 stories: 1 graphic novel, 8 audio books, together 3310 pages. I should count this month in hours rather than pages but I’m way too lazy to count ;).
  • Average rating: 3.8 which is exactly what I had last month o.O.
  • I finished all of the bookish challenges that had a chance to be finished and forgot about others because… time
  • Since it was pretty much an Audiobook month I only managed to add more paper books to my library :P. I made it a challenge for this year to actually read them.

The boring, the bad and the dnf’d

Now that I shared with you my favorite books of the year it’s only fair to list some of the books that I found lacking… The good part is I’ve got all of these books for free one way or another, so no money lost at least ;). Maybe I should split them by source… Oh, and yet again, there’s no specific order, these are simply all the books bellow 2,5 stars and some DNF’s

Some of you will have a completely different opinion about these books, but I can’t help it if I don’t like them, so live with it 😉 and feel free to share your thoughts!

The big unknown [Amazon freebies] 

Some of these $0 books look so tempting and it’s so easy to click and upload them to your Kindle. Some of them are even great, but I haven’t found any this year. Instead, I found few really uninteresting stories.

Cappuccinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse Harper LinCappuccinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse by Harper Lin
cozy mystery, humor, contemporary

It might’ve been a fun read if the story progressed a bit faster into the mystery area, instead we’ve got two characters apparently trying to hang out and first glimpses of any mystery started at around page 70… DNF. Continue reading “The boring, the bad and the dnf’d”

2016’s goodies – the books I fell in love with

Looking back at my favorite reads from this year I have to say I’m rather surprised. Most of the books on that special shelf were from Fantasy genre and now I’ve got surprisingly many Sci-Fi novels. And it seems I’ve discovered a new love for cozy mysteries, especially by one author :D.

I wanted to make this list a “top-something” list (and surprisingly I’ve got 10 books to present, so it might’ve worked), but I can’t decide on the order, so instead I’ll just show off the few super-awesome books that really grabbed me this year and only this year – no re-reads.

A bit of a warning – this post is all about positive thoughts! There will be no whining, complaining, etc 😉
