Top 5 Wednesday: 2017 Releases You Are Excited For

I could not be vegetarian and vegan sounds even more horrific. I love animals, but there are boundaries… like food 😛 I love food. I just had this nice breakfast with boiled eggs, onions and bacon stripes and I’m happy :D. It was also horrifically caloric, but with the temperatures between -15°C and -20°C lately I feel inclined to eat more 😛 and I really don’t care. Did I mention I love food? Now I only need some coffee and I can start working.

That was the random thought for today brought to you by calories 😛

Top 5 WednesdayAnyway, it was supposed to be a Top 5 Wednesday post, so let’s get to it :P. Actually, I almost skipped this Wednesday as I don’t normally track recent releases other than my ARC’s, but I’m using it as an excuse to publish my random food thoughts :P. Yes, I’m kind of in a good mood and full of energy… for now. Continue reading “Top 5 Wednesday: 2017 Releases You Are Excited For”

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Villains

imgresLast day of the month and the topic is – Villains! All there annoying, evil, plotting baddies out there. The ones that want to take over the world, destroy it, steal everything, manipulate others. The ones that we hate or the ones that we just can’t help but like even with everything they’ve done. What are your chosen baddies?

5. Islington

A certain angel from Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. And if you haven’t read this story yet then this is a spoiler, but seriously you had plenty of time to do so by now :P.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the idea of an imprisoned angel who plots to get out. Aaaand if you listened to the BBC adaptation Islington was played by Cumberbatch and it was AWESOME!

Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Want to Re-Read

imgresOh dear, it’s been a while since my last T5W post. There are so many books I’d love to re-read, but I’m never able to find time for them. There’s always a new, shiny book waiting next to them and the curiosity of unknown usually wins ;). But these few titles are on my MUST-re-read list. It might take me some time to get to these, but this list used to be a bit larger ;). And I’ll skip the Harry Potter books since I’m actually reading the new, shiny illustrated editions as they come out. Well… within a year of publication anyway :P.

5. Master and MargaritaThe Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov

A good old classic and one of the few books I was made to read at school and actually enjoyed.
Why would I want to re-read it? Mainly because I want to know if the book is really something I liked or if I had a strange phase back then. Plus it has the cat-devil :D.

Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters

It’s been two weeks since my last Funny Friday, but for some reason, I couldn’t get into writing. But here we are again with two novels. Yes, only two single books. I thought I’d add one more, but somehow it didn’t fit. It’s not going to be a long post [I think].

Let’s start with a two-author story. Two fantastic authors that made an amazing job writing this book. The one and only…

Good Omens

Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

And try to tell me that book’s no good, I dare you!

The lazy or super busy ones had an occasion to listen to the adaptation of this story on BBC Radio. It was a rather good adaptation, so if you’ll ever have another chance just listen to it.

I’m not going to write a review, mostly because I just found some really nice ones on GR and I feel mine wouldn’t be as good, I mean, check out the first paragraph of this one: Jeremy Zerbe’s Reviews.

Why do I love this book? Continue reading “Funny Friday – end of the worlds and immortal bounty hunters”
