2017 in Books

2017 was crazy and magical. I was in Night Court with High Fae, I tried to rule Amber, I was in Underland with giant rats, beetles and bats, I founds answers in Weep and met Lazlo Strange, I participated in international Warcross Championships, I did quite a lot of travelling: I was on Mars, Erilea & Moon…also I sneaked into Ministry of Magic. I met a Lightning Girl who bore the weight of Silent Stone, I watched Endgame reach its final phase and I was obsessed with a beautiful stranger, an art student of a name Miranda.

Moreover, I imagined that Shakespeare had a sister: a sister equal to Shakespeare in talent and equal in genius, I had a nightmare and I became a vegetarian and then I think I sort of lost my mind and then there were hungry demons and howling werewolves.

I made some new friends. Death…  Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction and Destiny and a girl with a mysterious psychic link with a monster. Those were interesting encounters not to forget about infamous inhabitants of folklore were forced into exile.

I learned about different kind of Hunger, of how Marilyn Monroe called every man in her life “daddy” and then I was also Thinking Without Thinking. I met Thousand Naked Strangers and realized that truth can be so much worse than you could imagine and how there always are forgotten heroes.

 

 

In 2017, I read 60,224 pages across 200 books. A lot. You can check my adventures here: https://www.goodreads.com/user/year_in_books/2017/21610643 This year I intend to read 300 books… it will be an adventure of kind I haven’t had in a long time :)

What were your best reads in 2017? What were your favorite places? Did you make any new friends?

Wishing you prosperous and bookish year 2018!

Classification of Book Lovers – Infographic…

Which book species are you?

I’m definitely: the hoarder (I don’t even know how many books I own…200 + ebooks + my grandmother owned a bookshop once so you can just guess what our house looks like…), chronological reader , immersive reader, library lover (could never afford all the books I read), book rescuer, multitasker, omnireader, travelling or commuting reader, sleepy bedtime reader (is this why I suffer of insomnia?? ), cross-under, complicated, show-off…trying not to be.

Happy September!!
