What’s That Book Wednesday

A meme I’ve been wanting for a while now, especially since I’ve joined The Broke and The Bookish with Top Ten Tuesdays. As a kid, I read a ton of books (and a lot of them relatively good reading material). But some of those were not well-known apparently. Do you know this book, it’s name,Continue reading “What’s That Book Wednesday”

Top Ten Biographies/Memoirs

Another lovely topic, the girls at The Broke and The Bookish requests this week our top ten books in X-genre. Which is fine for people who have a definite preference… but I kind of don’t. I know a lot of people who swoon for YA, dystopians, romance, historical novels or classics… but I kind ofContinue reading “Top Ten Biographies/Memoirs”

Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss

As a rule, I do not review non-medical books on this blog, unless it forms part of a Top Ten Tuesday.

Book Review: The Brain That Changes Itself

Since my recent discovery of the myriad of book blogs, Goodreads and the ability to read while maintaining my schedule has led to me rather bravely attempting a bookish challenge, I have decided to blog about those books.

Top Ten Books I would recommend to someone who doesn’t read South African literature

This week’s meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish states: Top Ten Books I’d Recommend To Someone Who Doesn’t Read X. In my case, South African Authors.

Questions of Book Lust

Sophie from Her library adventures adapted these for a recent blog post of hers – these questions are the original questions for a bookworm.  And then after, it was stolen by bookgrrl and then by Cassandra. And then I stole it. I needed some respite from hard work and many deceased. I haven’ been ableContinue reading “Questions of Book Lust”
