End of Year Survey 2018

Yep, this one is super late even for these! However, since I didn’t have my blog, I didn’t feel like finishing and/or publishing it yet since no one besides me would be able to read it. It was kind of nice going through this, remembering the books I read not so long ago that feels like a different life time. So here are the tops and bottoms of 2018 …

End of Year Survey 2017

Late as always (but earlier than last year, ha! I’m getting better at this!): Looking back on the books I read in 2017 – the good, the bad, and the ugly (crying)!

End of Year Survey 2016

Hey, I’m even a little over a month earlier than last year! As always, I semi-prepared this but didn’t finish in time, but wanted to finish it nevertheless. It’s supposed to be functioning as a memory aid for my future self. Anyway, here are some of the books I’ve read in 2016 and my thoughts on them …

Top Ten Tuesday #37: Irish Is Awesome #2

It’s All About Audio freebie time and since I had this post in the pipeline for so long, I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to publish it! Maybe you remember the last post, which I published shortly after finishing my Bachelor thesis. The covers of Avicii and Macklemore were the only thing that kept me sane during that horrific week of writing. How fitting that I just finished my Master degree. This time, my writing routine was very different. Although I did finish only hours before handing it in, I wasn’t under that much pressure because I managed to distribute the work fairly over a couple of weeks. Still, these ten covers below are wonderful and really make me want to work on my Gaeilge skills. Coláiste Lurgan makes those as part of their summer school project to add zest to Gaeilge for teens. They are absolutely fantastic …

End of Year Survey 2015

Yeah, this is beyond silly. I just have a talent for semi-preparing these and then never finish them in time. But I had this one almost done so I just didn’t want to delete it all. And it’s kind of nice reminiscing last years books …

Top Ten Tuesday #36: All-Time Favourite Horse Novels

You weren’t seriously expecting me to choose any other genre, were you? To be honest, I first and foremost chose horse novels because I’ve read hundreds of them and feel more or less competent to point out my all-time favourites. For example, I still haven’t read many high fantasy novels that are considered classics or are widely celebrated, which means I’d probably miss the very best that might become all-time favourites in the near-future – if that makes any sense. In no particular order …

Top Ten Tuesday #35: Books I Abandoned … And Came Back To

Sometimes, I abandon books right in the middle. I just lose interest. My mood changes. I’m indecisive what I actually want to read. I’m too annoyed or appalled to continue. I want to read a new release I’ve been waiting for. Or I don’t have any reason whatsoever …
