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.


Terrier  - Tamora Pierce Set in a Tortall centuries before Alanna, Beka Cooper shows us life in the poorest part of Corus. It's a hard life, with lots of violence, which Pierce once more manages to describe vividly, and Beka and her friends soon feel real and very, very likable.
