Review: A Thousand Sisters

World War II is a piece of history that interests me a lot. I have watched numerous documentaries and like finding out more about stuff that went down back then. Being from Germany, my point of view courtesy of history lessons in school, documentaries, and the media has mostly been German-centric, so I really like taking on different points of view and exploring what happened in other countries. This book is one of those that provide insight into something I had never heard of thus far: I had no idea that Russia was the only country that allowed women to fly and become fighter pilots in the war. And what an incredible story they shared!

Review: The Scorpio Races

I can’t take this novel seriously. I’m sorry, I just can’t. Seeing all my friends raving about The Scorpio Races makes me laugh out loud. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not a bad novel, not at all. I enjoyed it immensely and had a lot of fun with it, some of it unintentional. Because it is, and there’s no way to sugar-coat it, a horse novel to a T.

Wrap-Up August 2020

I think this has to be my most social month in … forever! I also did get quite a lot of reading done – so much so that I don’t even know how I did it! However, this was the first (and hopefully only) month I exclusively read books for work! However, I managed what seemed impossible …

Wrap-Up July 2020

It is not a good sign if you have to open your calendar app to check what actually happened in July. The months just bleed together in my head. All in all, July was a rather good month, though really stressful at work, but I still managed a decent amount of pages.

Wrap-Up June 2020

Readingwise, I managed to read a lot of pages in June. Apart from that, the month wasn’t that great. Maybe that was why I read a ton!

Wrap-Up May 2020

Can we just forget about May? On a personal level, this year suuuuuucks and on a bookish level, it’s not that good either. At least I read a couple of books this month I really enjoyed …

Wrap-Up April 2020

Apparently, quarantine and reading don’t go well together in my case. I’m one of the lucky (or unlucky, depending on which angle you take) people who can continue to work pretty normally, so I don’t have more time for reading. And the time I have, I don’t spend reading. I just can’t concentrate on much else than videos, so I spent a lot of time watching YouTube, Netflix, and DVDs …
