Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi

Here we go, The Last Jedi! I was surprised to find it on Netflix – this is the only Star Wars movie they have on there. I wonder why? Maybe because it’s gotten so many negative reviews, that not many people want to pay to see it. I am here mainly because the current CaptainContinue reading “Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi”

After Life, Season 1

This is a very personal review. I can’t believe I’m even posting it, but here it is. What a brilliant show! I just finished the last episode – there’s only six half-hour ones, thank you, British television! So I’m full of the feels, and this is not going to be very coherent. Which, I figure,Continue reading “After Life, Season 1”

Death March Escape, by Jack J. Hersch

The full title reads – Death March Escape: The remarkable story of a man who twice escaped the Nazi Holocaust. I would say “remarkable” is an understatement in this context. There have only been a handful of recorded cases of prisoners escaping from concentration camps during WWII and not all of those who managed toContinue reading “Death March Escape, by Jack J. Hersch”

On the whole, YOU proved toContinue reading “xoxo, Dan Humphrey’s murderous alter-ego”

Bookworm’s paradise

I found out about NetGalley exactly a year ago. Before then all the books that I read came from my own personal collection, or a vast, vast library that I was working at. Let’s just say, I never ran out of books to read, but rather my book piles kept growing and growing. Yet IContinue reading “Bookworm’s paradise”

A muser and a rambler

I am a reader, a writer and a movie/show watcher. In no way am I a critic. I’m not even sure one can call oneself a critic, and yet so many do. Call yourself a reviewer, if you like, because reviewing is what you do. Meanwhile, I shall call myself a muser and a rambler,Continue reading “A muser and a rambler”

Diary of a wimpy kid: the meltdown, by Jeff Kinney

Somehow Wimpy Kid became one of my favorite characters, and certainly a constant in my reading life. Every year I wait for the beginning of November to get my hands on the new volume of Greg Heffley’s misfortunes. And I’m not the only one. My library used to purchase up to 10 copies of eachContinue reading “Diary of a wimpy kid: the meltdown, by Jeff Kinney”
