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.

Review: Small Spaces series
Hello dear reader(s) and welcome to another (quite spoiler-y) episode of Nessa reads and reviews. Spooky season is upon us, so in today’s instalment I’ll do my very best to write a concise and coherent review of Katherine Arden’s horror series Small Spaces. Most likely I will fail on both fronts, but we’ll see how it goes yeah. 🙂 As I mentioned in the very first sentence of this text there will be spoilers in this review. If I can, I usually do my very best to avoid spoilers while writing a review, but sometimes they are necessary. The most important thing is that everyone is aware of this fact at the very beginning so they can skip ahead to the opinion part of the text, or skip the text entirely. Ye have been warned. 🙂
August review roundup
Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to another episode of Nessa reads and reviews! It’s been a while since I last posted and the non-activity is mostly due to the combination of work, having family over and very little free time. Sadly (well at least for me it’s sad, I don’t know about you guys) the only reading I managed to in August was during Dewey’s Reverse Readathon that was held on the 2nd of August. However, even that was disrupted by my job and life in general. But at least I managed to read 3 books on the Kindle app on my mobile phone during that weekend so I’ll take my victories where I can get them. 😀
Musings over coffee part I.
In witch I contemplate my current reading process, future reading plans, books and book orders, a TV series and generally go off on a tangent… But there is method to this madness somewhere in here, mostly in the coffee. 😀
Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to the blog! As mentioned above this is going to be one of those (most likely) lengthy texts, so go ahead grab a cup of coffee or tea, or your preferred drink and some snacks if you want to and let’s get this show on the road 😀
A Year in Review
Hello dear reader(s) and a very happy New Year! 2019 is finally here and I hope that it will be happy, healthy, prosperous and interesting as you want it to be. I truly wish you all the best and hope that when you eventually look back on it you’ll say it was a grand year. 🙂 Speaking of looking back, as is custom, I wanted to reflect about the past year, chat about my plans for this year and do some housekeeping on the blog. So without further ado let’s get started. 🙂
