Sometimes I read fiction. Sometimes I read non-fiction. Most books I read are serious though. Okay, some fiction books make me laugh more than others, but at least the plot is serious. So I doubted what I would do when I picked up I Can’t Make This Up. This book written by a comedian, was it worth the read? I went to find out. Here’s my review!
Wow. I’ve done it. After a long time – too long time? – I’ve finished The City of Mirrors. This third instalment of The Passage trilogy is a great addition to my list of “long books one must have read in his life”. Here’s my review of the book. Spoiler alert: I liked it.
As I’m a bit sick and reading a long book called The City of Mirrors, there might not be a review here for a while. So let’s talk about something else. Sometimes, I hear people say these things about books that make me think either they’re not from this world or I’m not. With this post, I’m hoping that it’s them. Let’s have a look at four reading myths.
Another month passed, another goal achieved! My reading goal for April was eight books, and that’s exactly how much I’ve read! Did I read every book I mentioned in my last monthly post? No.
Plus, I went to see Avengers: Infinity War on Sunday. If you haven’t yet, go do so fast! It’s awesome!
What would it be to not read for enjoyment, but for something else. Not just to learn something, but to get better in the art of writing. I asked myself that question after I found this book. And I understand now what Francine Prose is saying. There are many ways to improve your writing. But learning from your idols might be the best way to do so.
I’m a fan of modern management strategies. Mostly because they imply a more agile mindset. Therefore, I am happy to read books like Managing for Happiness by Jurgen Appelo. His book really was an eye-opener. When I found out Ralph van Roosmalen added content to it, by writing his own book, I just had to read it.
Wow, did I underestimate this book. Both in length as well as in quality. I am really, really happy to have found out this story exists and I can’t wait to read the next and last instalment of this series. But before we get to that, let me share my thoughts on The Twelve.
