BBC_Radio_logoHello again!
Another week of January had passed by and I’ve got only three more dramatizations I’d like to point out, one of which I must’ve linked at some point already, but I’ll do it anyway because it’s awesome :D.

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.

My rating: DNF  star-full-iconstar-half-full-iconstar-empty-iconstar-empty-iconstar-empty-icon

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”

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”

Indian legends, ghosts and space pirates – graphic novel mash-up

Today I’m bringing you three graphic novels I read at some point last year and was meant to review aaaaages ago. Again it’s a set of shorter-than-usual reviews, so not to bore you too much :P.

It will be a weird set starting with some tales from legends with a strong heroine on the lead, moving through contemporary and supernatural ghost hunting story and ending with a sci-fi pirates on an awesome space ship!

Anyone interested?

I bought this comic because it promised to combine this lovely, colorful graphic you can see on the cover and the myths and tales from Indian culture.

Well, the second one did deliver and I really liked that since I don’t have many occasions to read about this culture and it seems fascinating. Continue reading “Indian legends, ghosts and space pirates – graphic novel mash-up”
