The NoSleep Podcast – European Tour 2020 [Updated]

Update: The NoSleep Podcast team was kind to provide the correct names of the authors and their respective stories, so we can spread the love accordingly (29.01.2020) Vel's Perspective We arrived early, as one should, and shuffled coats, umbrellas and wine on our seats with great anticipation. Nelly was definitely more nervous and excited, but … Continue reading The NoSleep Podcast – European Tour 2020 [Updated]

Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami

Vel’s Perspective Here it is, our last book of the year! And what a book it is. As it was Nelly’s choice, I have to admit I did not look at any reviews or research the author as I had done with the titles I’d chosen. I found the title itself pretty vague - I … Continue reading Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami

The Hate U Give Book Cover

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Vel's Perspective The Hate U Give is the last of the books I got to choose from the Goodreads awards for 2018. The title intrigued me, as well as the premise and some of the reviews, so I decided to give it a go. After I had chosen this title, I realised the number of … Continue reading The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

The Corset by Laura Purcell - Bookcover

The Corset By Laura Purcell

However, I think one … Continue reading The Corset By Laura Purcell

If They Come for Us Kindle Book Cover

IF THEY COME FOR US BY FATIMAH ASGHAR

Nel's Perspective: I haven’t had this much fun researching words, phrases and historic events I’ve only heard in passing in a long time. This is why I like learning languages in the first place - each language represents a different way of perceiving the world and the things surrounding us. And while analysing contemporary issues … Continue reading IF THEY COME FOR US BY FATIMAH ASGHAR

The ebook versions of The Tattooist of Auschwitz on two Kindles.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris

Vel's Perspective: Firstly, I'd like to mention a few things about the edition. I read the book on a Kindle, ebook published in 2018 by Zaffre, where barely 85% of the contents is the story of Lale, the Tattooist of Auschwitz. The rest of the book is filled up with notes from the author, Lale's … Continue reading The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris

Side View of the Book Cover of Catch 22

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

Nel's Perspective This time I don’t even know how to start my review... And I still have no idea whether I like the book or not. I hope I get to a more precise opinion by the end of this review. Joseph Heller’s Catch 22 is a very bizarre experience from start to finish. The … Continue reading Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
