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.

The Queen of Attolia (The Queen's Thief, #2)

The Queen of Attolia (The Queen's Thief, #2) - Megan Whalen Turner I liked the first book, but this one, this one I loved. Again the author keeps the reader entertained with twists and turns, but this time the characters are deeper and more interesting.

The high point is definitely one character's journey of learning how to live with a new disability - a rare treat to see this treated so balanced and realistically, instead of either a complete tragedy or an obstacle to 'overcome'.
