Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back! If you haven’t read my previous blog post Reading in the Time of Corona – you can click on the link and have a read. Basically I muse what kind of texts (books, audiobooks, comics, manga, magazines) one should look for and what to avoid like the plague. 😀 This is the continuation of that text in which I’m going to give a few lots and lots reading recommendations. Apparently. 😀

What do you read when you’re isolating or social distancing yourself from others to help prevent the spread of infection? How do you choose the appropriate reading material to help you “survive” your isolation? Should you read new editions or old favourites? What genres and topics to pick? What media to choose: books, e-books, audio books, comics, manga, magazines, fanfiction? The choices are unlimited and mayhap overwhelming… However, we also have to acknowledge the fact that in some parts of the world, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus, libraries and book shops are closing down. So your choice of reading material can be limited.
Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to another instalment of Nessa reads and reviews! In today’s review I’ll share my thoughts and general musings on David Mogo, Godhunter; a godpunk novel by the Nigerian author Suyi Davies Okungbowa. So without further ado let’s get into the review.
Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to another instalment of Nessa reads and reviews! I’m reviewing Sali Hughes’ Pretty Honest: The Straight-Talking Beauty Companion with a full face of makeup. It’s a Saturday afternoon and my plans for today consist of writing up this review and sitting on the couch catching
up on David Attenborough’s Our Planet documentary on Netflix. Still, I did a green smoky eye, put on foundation, blush, highlight and toped everything with a red lipstick just for the heck of it. Because I enjoy the combination of green eyeshadow and red lipstick. Because it’s the weekend, I have no prior obligations and I can play with makeup. However, if a friend invited me out for coffee or dinner or just to hang out… I have absolutely no problem going out of the house looking like a tropical fruit basket. 🙂 I happen to enjoy colourful eye looks, and greens and blues are among my favourite colours. What can I say, I’m a 80s girl. 😀 Although my makeup experimentations are amusing (at least to me they are, and on that high not I’m attaching a picture of me looking like a tropical fruit basket. You’re welcome and I’m sorry. 😀 ) I need to stop digressing and get back to reviewing this book.
Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to the blog! I mentioned at the end of my last review that I’ll be participating in Dewey’s Readathon that would be held on Saturday April 6th. The official start time was on Saturday at 8:00 EDT, or 14:00 CEST for Croatian readers. April’s Readathon ended a couple of hours ago and since it’s raining this afternoon in Split I decided to write down some musings about the event and review my to-read pile in one go. Two birds, one blog post. 😀
