Rest in peace, Judith Kerr and thank you for all the great childhood memories, which I will continue to pass on to the next generation. 💙💛💜

I picked this book up on a whim, because I liked the cover. It turned out to be completely different from what I had expected, though. The numerous blurbs on the front and back cover led me to believe it would be a lighthearted comedy about a quirky woman working at a kombini in Japan. The book turned to be much darker and at times even a bit disturbing.

I did not know Marvel allowed dialogue like that. I love it 😂

You've allprobably already seen it, but for those who haven't: Litsy is now on the web as well :)
The first thing I noted about it was that the images are larger and we can now see our books in all their photogenic glory :D
The app will probably always remain my go-to incarnation of litsy, but I think the website is a very nice addition.

The first few months of this year were so choke-full of work that I opted for a re-read of the Dresden Files.
Today I finally handed in a huge translation project and can finally relax a bit 😌

With regard to the current weather in Chicago... I don't want to point any fingers, but we all know about Harry Dresden's "dealings" with the Winter Court. Just sayin'...

I won't go into any more details to avoid spoilers ?

Stay safe, everyone!

maich @Katerina did you get my package? I sent it in December. Hope it didn't lost. 🤔 4mo

I love that Jim Butcher and I are close enough in age to have the same pop culture references. 😂😂
For those who don't know, this is the honourable Wizard Harry Dresden trying to keep the world from ending, while a war is raging around him 😁
If you are not reading the Dresden Files yet, you really should start.

RachelAmphlett I adore this series! 4mo

I wanted to write one post on Litsy per day this year, but I'm already 5 days behind 😂 Ah well. I guess I'll need to catch up later.

I've been in the mood for the Dresden Files lately and have started a little re-read of the series. Maybe there will be some more news about the new volume Peace Talks until I'm done. Fingers crossed 😉

Is it very bad form to quickly read the book you are going to give your niece for Christmas before you wrap it? There could be words missing. I really should check...

I feel bad for taking so many books out of the open library in one go, but what is a reader to do, when she is presented with almost a complete series?
And I don't think I'll be reading these twice, so I can always put them back 😉

The ending to volume 5 was a ripper 😀 Although I should have figured out sooner how it would turn out.
I hate how much work has been cutting into my reading time lately 😞 I thought I would be further along in the series by now.

I was very sad to hear of Anthony Bourdain's suicide. I was always rather envious of his lifestyle, because he got to travel all over the world and have all these experiences, but that just goes to show that you never know what is really going on in another person's life 😔

Katerina @jfalkens Well, it all happens at the end in this book, doesn't it? I really wonder what Jordan came up with to fill 11 more volumes! If I didn't know better, I'd say it could end in the next book in classic fantasy trilogy style, but I know it doesn't, so now I'm even more intrigued. 12mo
jfalkens @Katerina lol the plot gets quiet extensive. 12mo

The Wheel of Time 2/14: I've just finished "The eye of the world" and can't wait for the story to continue. All the pieces were very nicely set up in volume 1 and now the adventure can truly begin. #wheeloftime

jfalkens Did you read New Spring yet? 12mo
Katerina @jfalkens No, I haven't read it yet. One comment on goodreads said that you should read it when you are a few books into the main series, so that you can appreciate all the names and characters that will come up in New Spring. 12mo
Katerina Have you read it? 12mo
See All 14 Comments
jfalkens @Katerina I haven't yet, I didn't get it until I was 5 or so books in and since I saw it was a prequel I didn't want to back track in the story and forget what was going on currently. I'll probably read it once I finish the series. 12mo
jfalkens I know @kylienoele read New Spring before The Eye of the World. 12mo
Katerina @jfalkens That's what I was thinking too. I so want something good to happen for Lan! Preferably in combination with Nyn (I can never spell her name). I like my fantasy with some romance. Could Perrin and Egwene be the king and queen of Manetheren reborn? There was a scene where Perrin said something in the old tongue without meaning to and she almost understood him. Hmm...or maybe it's just the Manetheren blood. 12mo
Katerina @jfalkens Does Litsy have a messaging function? I don't want to end up spoiling the book for anyone 😛 12mo
jfalkens @Katerina Litsy doesn't have a messaging but you can mark a comment as spoiler by hitting the skull. 12mo
Katerina @jfalkens True, I didn't think of that. I'll try to catch up with you as fast as I can then 😄 12mo
jfalkens @Katerina are you on slack? There's a Litsy group on there and you can pm there. 12mo
Katerina @jfalkens I used to have it, but I can install it again. 12mo

I'm going on an adventure! This is my reading project for 2018: all 14 volumes of The Wheel of Time. I don't know yet if I'll attempt to read them all without other books in between, but I'll make certain not to take too long breaks,so I won't forget too many details. #wheeloftime

knittedgnome I'm slowly working my way through them too. Only a chapter or so a day but really enjoying it so far! I should finish the first within a week! 13mo
Katerina @knittedgnome Nice! 😊 We can exchange thoughts. I'm currently on page 270, but probably won't get much reading in this weekend. 13mo
jfalkens @knittedgnome @Katerina I'm willing to discuss too! It's probably not as fresh for me since I'm almost done with book 10 but I have no one else to talk to about them. My husband plans to read them eventually so he's out. 12mo
