BBC Thursday – 2nd of February


Hello, my dead Radio addicts! I know today’s post comes out a bit late, but I wanted to prepare this little graphic you can see here and surprisingly I couldn’t do that at work :P. Maybe I should change switch departments after all, but it looks like I have waaaay too little experience with actual DTP work. Let’s face it, my skills are totally basic and limited to Photoshop ;).

Anyway, on today’s playlist, I’ve got for you two crime/mystery dramatizations – one that I’ve already listened to and one that… well, I haven’t listened to this story, but there were others by this rather interesting author. Continue reading “BBC Thursday – 2nd of February”

The ones I left behind

It’s Monday? Let’s be negative!

Here are two books I was meant to read and review, but after a couple of tries I simply gave up. Since both of them were from NetGalley I kind of felt obliged to write some kind of reviews, so here they are. I know they are far from being positive, but what can I say?

I received copies of these books from the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for honest reviews.

The more “Sherlock” stories I pick up from post-Doyle authors the more I’m convinced I really should give up. I do realize his writing was very specific and not everyone likes it, but you have to admit it was still pretty damn good and interesting. Continue reading “The ones I left behind”

BBC Thursday 5th of January

BBC_Radio_logoNew year, new BBC dramatizations to listen to, or so it seems :P.

Today’s list will be a bit long, but I just can’t skip any of these. There will be some mystery, some classic, a bit of fairy dust and some curious lands.

1. Sherlock Holmes: The Game’s Afoot

Hear the evidence gathered clue by clue – as Sherlock Holmes enthusiast, Nick Utechin investigates how the Baker Street sleuth has been portrayed on radio across the decades.

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 😉

An adorable and lovely graphic novel without words and yet with a complete story and cute characters. I still want plushies of both characters! I should learn to sew… Continue reading “2016’s goodies – the books I fell in love with”
