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. 😀

Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to the holiday edition of Nessa reads and reviews! 🙂 For those of you who were celebrating Christmas I (once again) with you a happy Christmas! I hope you spent some quality time with your loved ones, or at least that you had a good meal and some holiday cheer. For the folks not celebrating Christmas, I hope you had a lovely day with your loved ones and shared a good meal and had some fun. 🙂 But to get back to the topic at hand, today I’ll be reviewing another book from my December reading list: The New Silk Roads: The Present and Future of the World by Peter Frankopan. This is his 2nd book that I’m reviewing this month, and if you’re interested my review for the Croatian illustrated edition of Putovi Svile is here.
Pozdrav dragi štioci i dobrodošli natrag! Ova recenzija je zaista posebna i ne mogu vam opisati koliko sam uzbuđena dok ovo pišem. Donosim vam recenziju hrvatskog prijevoda ilustrirane verzije Putovi Svile: Nova povijest svijeta povjesničara Petera Frankopana i ilustratora Neila Packera. Prije 3 godine povjesničar Peter Frankopan izdao je knjigu The Silk Roads: A New History of the World. Ova fascinantna, maestralno napisana knjiga ubrzo je postala svjetski bestseler, te je prevedena na nekoliko svjetskih jezika. Kritičari poznatih tiskovina su pisali hvalospjeve o njoj, a nekoliko izdavača ju je proglasilo knjigom godine u 2016.
Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to the blog! Can you believe it’s already December? It’s finally properly cold here in the Northern Hemisphere, snow is here in those parts that do get snow and you can just feel the festive mood in the air. 🙂 Since it’s cold outside and it’s getting darker earlier you naturally want to stay home where it’s nice and warm. And since you’re already at home why not make yourself a cup of tea/coffee/something a bit stronger 🙂 (hey, I don’t judge 😀 ), find a comfy place to curl up and read something. I’ve mentioned in my previous chatty post that I’m making a reading list for December. Now that it’s finally finished I’m going to walk you through it. Let’s get cracking!
