January Wrap Up

I have already posted this few hours earlier but I don’t know what happened that the blog post disappeared >< That’s the first time this happened to me here. How can it disappear??!?! So that’s why I will only make this post very short.

Here is what I did in January:

  • Went shopping and bought a new purse and a few weeks later I bought Dave Eggers’ The Circle.

  • went to an All-You-Can-Eat buffet restaurant with my mum, sister and brother. It was sooo yummy!

  • Went to Frankfurt for an AIESEC preparation seminar. Met a lot of new people and learned many important things about culture and prejudices. Stayed there for 2 days at the weekend and they even provided food for us, except for the dinner on sunday, because the seminar was already over in the late afternoon, so I went to town for donburi at a japanese restaurant. It was so good!

  • Decided upon a title for my Bachelor thesis now: “Racism and Fascism in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series”. I also bought and lent some books for that by now.

What I read in January:

  • The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: 5/5 stars – A must read for fantasy fans! I really was sad after finishing this book. I felt like something was missing. I liked it more than the LotR series.

  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: 4/5 stars – A beautiful story, a magical world, and an enchanting circus I wish would exist in our world. Favorite characters were Tsukiko, the twins especially Poppy, Chandresh and Herr Thiesen. The idea with the scarf was wonderful!

  • Riddley Walker by Russel Hoban: 2/5 stars – The writing style destroyed the reading experience, although there were some funny sentences. It is a pity that it is such a book which is hard to read, since the theme of the novel is very interesting. It is set in a futuristic world that distinguishes itself not by being modern, but by being regressed into a Stone Age setting because a nuclear explosion as destroyed the modern civilization as we know it.

  • The Wisdom of Harry Potter: What our Favourite Hero Teaches us About Moral Choices by Edmund M. Kern: 4/5 stars – Not only hardcore Harry Potter fans will enjoy this. It is both informative and entertaining.

  1. I’m reading The Night Circus too! I’m really enjoying it!

    Your bachelor’s thesis sounds amazing! So much more fun than my honours thesis… I wish I was doing HP! Alas, I’m stuck with Virginia Woolf.

    As for the missing post, it happened to me the other day. Try going to your pages list and look wayyy down the bottom. I had mine somehow backdated to 1970 :/ Must be a wordpress glitch.

      Oh Virginia Woolf. I also had some experience with her. And I don’t know whether I should like her or not :D
      Good luck with your thesis :) what are you writing about?

      1. Yeah, it’s a really weird glitch, I think it was because I had two drafts going at once or something.
        I still feel like that, don’t worry… I’m not sure if I like her or hate her right now.
        Thanks, you too! I’m writing about the female experience of shell shock in WWI literature =)
        How long does your thesis have to be?
