Thoughts: Clockwork Angel, by Cassandra Clare

Thoughts: Short Story Round-Up!

In late October I read a load of short stories in a short timeframe, so I’m going to do a quick round-up here. I’ll be doing a similar graphic novel round-up soon too, because I’ve been riding that train these … Continue reading

German Reading Project: Der Kleine Prinz, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, translated by Grete and Josef Leitgeb

A whole book this time, and not just chapters! Der Kleine Prinz is both short enough and simply written enough that I managed it without too much heartache. My general German skills update: I’m improving in some ways and stalling … Continue reading

Thoughts: Kitty Saves The World, by Carrie Vaughn

Oh my goodness, this is the LAST ONE. I can finally rest easy knowing that the werewolves and assorted characters of supernatural Denver aren’t going to get into any more scrapes. I really shouldn’t need to spoiler warn for the … Continue reading

German Reading Project: Die Tribute Von Panem by Suzanne Collins, chapter 26

German Reading Project: Die Tribute Von Panem by Suzanne Collins, Chapter 25
