Bookish for life

Anthropology graduate, anglophile, social justice activist, chocoholic, traveler and book lover from the German-speaking part of Switzerland, currently working in the renewable energy sector. Books have been my passion since before I could read.


Considering using this as a replacement for my Goodreads account, where I've been keeping track of what I read (audiobooks included). You can find a record of the dead-tree books I own on LibraryThing. As of now I haven't imported those yet.

Sorcery & Cecelia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot

Sorcery & Cecelia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot  - Patricia C. Wrede, Caroline Stevermer This is just really good fun - I found it recommended on a "If you like Gail Carriger..." list and while it's YA (i.e. no sex *g*), it has a similar sense of whimsy and plays very amusingly with Regency clich├ęs (only with a magical twist). I also quite enjoyed the epistolary style, as the whole novel is composed of letters between cousins and best friends Cecelia and Kate.
