Mini book review: Animal Farm by George Orwell

Genre: Classic Fiction

Page Count: 122 pages

Publication Date: August 1945


Goodreads Summary: Animal farm

As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago, this remarkable allegory of a
downtrodden society of overworked, mistreated animals, and their quest to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality is one of the most scathing satires ever published.

As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals, we begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization; and in our most charismatic leaders, the souls of our cruelest oppressors. Continue reading

Camp NaNoWriMo update!

OK, so we’re past the half-way mark on Camp NaNoWriMo, and that means it’s time for a quick update.

My initial goal was to write 30.000 words in the month of April. Yes, that was my big challenge. Hoooowever, life got busy and I wasn’t writing as much as needed to to reach my goal. So I decreased my word-count goal slightly (I chopped off a third of it to be completely honest!) and I’m still behind. How is that even possible?!  Continue reading

My mystery date with…

If you want to see the other half of my collaboration with the lovely Kristina Steiner, check out my interview on her blog! 😀

Happy reading!


Today’s post is something very special and beyond exciting. I’m so happy and thankful that Fernanda at decided and offered people reading her blog to contact her if interested in doing a project together. I think that her action is something very noble, creative, kind and something to take notice of and imitate.

When seeing her proposal of working together, I couldn’t pass it up and so Fernanda and I came up with interviewing each other. I was really interested to see what she’s going to ask me and I enjoyed forming my questions for her. Doing this was a really positive experience not only because it’s something new and different but also because she is kind, creative, smart and we had a lot of fun corresonding.

Offering and doing collaborations is important. It’s paramount to support each other. So if anyone has an idea and wants to do something…
