The Dollmaker of Krakow by R.M. Romero | The whimsical story of magic during the war

The dollmaker of krakow

It took me awhile, but my review for this lovely li’l book is finally here! Usually, if I had left it this long between reading the book and writing the review, I would just leave the full review altogether. But I feel like this book deserves the full thing…if I can gather my thoughts properly. I still find it difficult to describe this one! But I shall try.

Let’s dive right in!

The Little Book of Hygge

This book has been on my radar for so long, and now that Wiking has brought out a second book, it was about time I got round to reading it. But hey, it just meant I had two of his books to binge, right? *shrugs*

Reading Update: How could this possibly be more sporadic?

sporadic reading

The last couple of months or so have been odd for my reading routine. Usually, things run pretty smoothly. I read one or two books per week, either morning or evening – sometimes both, if things are especially slow. I trundle through each month at the same pace, very happily so.

But the exact opposite seems to have happened through August and September. And since my “update/random” blog posts have been more general life based lately, I figured it was time for a reading update. And the sporadic pacing only makes a fab story, I suppose *shrugs*

The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson | How does a dreary world become so riveting?

The Final Empire

Thanks to a reading slump, it’s been so long since I’ve actually written a book review. I’m so glad this huge chunk of a book came along and gave me plenty of things to babble about.

An Update: The way reviews are done around these parts

review update

So. Another update.

As you might have seen in my most recent Sunday Status post, I’ve been gradually converting this blog into something more relaxed, more personal. As I said there, I’m not going to post if I don’t have anything worth writing about – I’m not going to keep myself on a schedule. Especially with the looming event of university starting.

No favourites for this month! I honestly can’t think of anything I’ve loved throughout the month of July that I haven’t already mentioned, so today’s post is just a share of my July Wrap Up video!

The Iliad by Homer | A lengthy read, but totally worth it to me

And with this review, you see the beginnings of my exploration into ancient classics. If you have me on instagram or twitter you many have heard me mention buying a few ancient greek inspired books recently, but my reviews have a bit of a backlog and so finally, the first is coming to my blog.

Why I Don’t Want To Work In Journalism

journalism

You’d think that having spent the last two years of my life studying Journalism, I’d be set on my way towards the industry. But umm, yeah about that…things didn’t quite work out that way.

In my college experience post, I discussed how I never actually wanted to study journalism – my life just took a detour that I wasn’t OK with. Granted, I wasn’t entirely *against* journalism to begin with, otherwise I wouldn’t have gone down that path in the first place. But it didn’t take me long to realise that actually, I really, really don’t want to work in journalism.

And so we have another ramble of a post, in which I try to explain my reasons why.
