Book Questions

Don't you just love when you look at your stats for the first time since the pandemic and realize you had more views when you weren't posting at all? Let's keep those readers away with some...content! I found this list of questions online but can't remember where. 1. How many books are too many for …

It's been too long since I posted but it's been crazy over here and work is as always during this time of year, more stressful than normal. I haven't had much time at home to do anything else but sleep, my YouTube feed is a true (and maybe tragic) testament to how little time I …

Our apartment faces east, a tiny bit to the north east if we're being picky and we only have windows on one of the walls. This means we only get sunlight straight through the windows in the mornings and with 30°C weather in the days, it feels more like an oven than anything else. To …

Music: Bauhaus. Nothing fresh on the horizon and I don't care. Repeat is just what I want. Podcast: Blackout Podcast. It's like a radio show and it's freaking amazing. It's not just a crush on Rami Malek, I swear. Movie: What we do in the shadows (2014). Not the show, the actual Kiwi movie. I …

Music: It's a strange combination of great female singers like PJ Harvey, Kate Bush, Blondie, Siouxie Sioux and Patti Smith in my headphones right now.  A lot of 80's and 90's indie musicians.

Music: Can't get How soon is now? by The Smiths out of my head because of the cover in The Craft but it's pretty cozy and I'm not complaining. Actually it's a tie between How soon is now? and Swedish punk act Lastkaj 14 and their entire discography, so here's both. Youtube: It's been a …

Music: I'm currently stuck in a dream pop universe. Cigarettes After Sex is making me happy at the moment. Youtube: It's amazing how far away we've come from MTV Cribs. I can't get enough of people's homes on Youtube. Dita is just as flawless as usual. TV show: Curious Creations by Christine McConnell. I've watched …

I'm doing this again because tired. Tomorrow will be my first official day working from home and it all feels supremely weird. Book I’m Reading at the moment? “Den liderliga häxan – Häxhammaren och de svenska häxprocesserna”, roughly translated into “The lecherous witch – The hammer of the witches and the Swedish witch trials” by …

Let's do another one of these and with some new burning questions. Book I'm Reading at the moment? This one is not translated into any other languages and but it's about old houses and building conservation, not just renovating and it's written in such a way it's hard to put aside. This is like a …
