To The Lake: When Shit Hits The Fan

With a very interesting timing, To The Lake is a Russian show about a deadly epidemic that released on Netflix in late 2020. I’m not sure if this unfortunate coincidence kept some people away from it, but I’m glad I wasn’t put off.

Book Review: The Word Is Murder by Anthony Horowitz

Since I was very young, I’ve always been a big fan of good mysteries. I still remember when I first got The Hound Of The Baskervilles, by Arthur Conan Doyle. It was a delight!

Then, fast forward to a year or so ago, and I was reading The Magpie Murders, my first Anthony Horowitz novel. I loved it so much, and I still need to write at least a short review here.

After that excellent first impression on an exceptional mystery novel, of course I was going to get another Horowitz novel. So I got The Word Is Murder, the first book on the Detective Daniel Hawthorne series, published in 2017.

Which Foreign Language Shows And Movies Do You Like?

I’ve always liked to consume different types of content. Not only different medias and genres, but also different origins. Recently I have been watching some great non-English (and non-Asian) TV shows and movies. Because of that, I decided to start a series of posts sharing some great recommendations, most of those from Europe.

Anime Controversies [#Controversed]

Today it’s time for something a little bit different: let’s talk anime controversies. This is part of a series of posts that Moya from the Moyatorium is suggesting for November: Announcing Controversed: A November Workshop.

As I finally have an excuse to stop being lazy and actually write a blog post on my thoughts, let’s see the prompt for this week:

  • What is a controversy in the (anime/manga/other) community that bothers you, and why?
  • What do you think of controversies? Do you consider yourself or your blog controversial to any degree?

If you want to skip to any specific part, there’s a TOC on the sidebar. Also, I have no intention of offending anyone, but just sparking discussion, igniting a flame war and losing all my followers.

New Fiction Books I Got Recently [Nov. 2020]

On the past few months I’ve got some sweet new eBooks on my Kindle, further increasing the size of my ever-growing TBR list. But, who can resist a sweet deal, right?

Below I’m sharing some of the books I’ve acquired recently. It’s not everything, as some are free classic books, and some just not that interesting. Also, the list is still a bit big, so I left the non-fiction reads for a separate post. I guess I need to stop buying books for a while. Anyway, let’s check it out!
