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 Soldier of Raetia

The Soldier of Raetia - Heather Domin Heather Domin self-published this historical novel. First in her Livejournal, then on I found it by accident and got instantly pulled in, reading every update breathlessly. The characters feel real, the descriptions paint a vivid picture of military life under Augustus, and Heather builds a great story arc.
