Very Good Lives by J. K. Rowling

I think probably every fan of Rowling’s work has read this little booklet – or else has seen her 2008 commencement speech on YouTube. As a great admirer of her work myself, I wanted to add Very Good Lives to my collection very badly. I loved her speech (in fact, I watched it all over again with my mum) and the book itself is a true collector’s item! Continue reading “Very Good Lives by J. K. Rowling”

My Summer TBR Update

In June I posted this blog post on my Summer TBR: all the books I intended to read during the summer months (June, July and August). I thought it would be fun to do two updates before the end of summer, at the start of each new month, and tell you how my TBR is coming along! Continue reading “My Summer TBR Update”

So I think it’s time for looking back on the developments of the last six months Continue reading “Goodreads Challenge Finished!”

They Have Arrived!

They’re finally here, the three new books I ordered, well, some three weeks ago. Yep, BookDepository was very slow to respond this time. I had to write to customer service in order to have them dispatched. But, I have to say, the response was polite and quick and within five days after my complaint, the books were mine. Yeah! Continue reading “They Have Arrived!”

My Summer TBR

Summer is upon us and I’m really looking forward to reading in the sunshine. I thought it might be nice to put together a Summer TBR as a kind of mini challenge. Over the last few weeks I bought quite a few novels, so this way I hope to make sure I’m reading them as soon as possible (and not buying more books instead). Want to see what’s on the list?
