Books

It's alive!

I started writing book reviews in my personal journal because I wanted to share my reading experiences – both good and bad – with my friends. Since I’m quite enjoying writing them and people seem to read them, I decided to open this journal.

The reviews are not limited to specific genres or even the latest books – I will review the books which made the strong impression on me, positive or negative, whether they were published yesterday, 20 years or a century ago. I will be reviewing erotica and gay fiction next to the so-called Great Books, so if this concept offends you in any way – this probably isn’t the place for you.

It goes without saying that these opinions are mine and mine alone. You may agree or disagree with them and may or may not add your opinion on the reviewed books. The mature discussion is always welcomed. On the other hand, if you are rude to me or other people in this journal, you’ll be out of here before you could say – chick lit. XD

Seriously, I don’t think that will be necessary. I believe the people who read on the regular basis are generally a decent lot.

If you have any suggestions for book reviews, I want to hear them. But, bear in mind that not all the books are available where I live. Also, the real life and my personal interests may interfere.

The journal is still work in progress, so have patience with me.

Welcome and enjoy! ^^

Books

The draught is (hopefully) over

I apologize for the long wait on new posts and reviews. Real life has a way of interfering with our interests, plus, I really have to adore or hate the book to be inspired. But, here I am now and I give you…

Guilty Pleasure Books


Oh, we have them all! Don’t tell me otherwise. You know… those books you are too embarrassed to admit you read. Your friends and family might be rolling their eyes when they hear about them, but you like them, read them, buy them and can’t get enough of them. Are you blushing? Yes, yes, you are. *laughs*

And yes, I’m going to ask you about them. But, quid pro quo is a fair play. So, here they come…

So… That was embarrassing. Or not. *laughs* I like what I like.

Tell me about your Guilty Pleasure Books. NAO!

J.D. Salinger, the author of "The Catcher in the Rye" died today at 91.

What I was really hanging around for, I was trying to feel some kind of a good-by. I mean I've left schools and places I didn't even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don't care if it's a sad good-by or a bad good-by, but when I leave a place I like to know I'm leaving it. If you don't, you feel even worse.
