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!

The Sunday Post #8: anyone who thinks one book has all the answers hasn’t read enough books

How’s your week been? I’ve been tired and lazy mostly. I’m really looking forward to the next weekend as I don’t have anything planned for then and I can just be and relax. Do you know that feeling?

I read a lot of comics this week. I read all of the volumes of Saga by Brian K. Vaughan that have been published so far and then both volumes of Monstress by Marjorie Liu. I can’t believe I hadn’t read them yet! If you like comics/graphic novels I warmly recommend these two.

I’ve been binge watching tv shows…too many good ones: Stanger Things (can’t wait for season 2), Marvel’s Agents of Shield and Gypsy.  And I’ve been watching Lost. I’ve never watched the show before and I don’t know how that’s possible but yay now I can watch all the 6 seasons. And young Ian Somerhalder  ❤

What have you done? What you have you read?
