well, i didnt know Noam Chomsky was banned from entering Israel. makes sense now that I read more about what he's said. not that it's so radical, but Israel is so sensitive. i stopped over at the nearby 2nd hand bookshop but it's always dangerous. i spent an hour there and went a bit overboard perhaps. got 2 smaller books for doctor; Chomsky's On Anarchism and a Graphic Guide to Sartre. and for myself i seem to have decided to take up latin again (cos unsurprisingly you forget a language if you...

Four things right-right now. The books above my head. A cat in the after noon sunshine. Reading the Egytptian Book of the Dead (but now I got distracted with a documentary on Marie Antoinette's coiffures.) I want Mikael Hadreas pants. As a side note; this was the first time I made a post in one sitting without moving anything else than my arms to take photos and grab the laptop. So now we know that!

It seems that I have had loads of things to do during a week for this post has been waiting in drafts since last Sunday. Well yes I have been sewing this week and I try to introduce my newest creation as soon as possible. Atypically it's something else as black this time, perhaps that coming spring has affected my mind unconsciously. Usually in the spring time I find  'the colors'. A year ago I made a silver dress if you remember.  But can't say that the spring would be coming... it's been...

There is lots of baking to do this week, I need to buy ingredients. I have cleaned the freezer; it is nice and tidy to preserve all the pastries.   Today I want to show you a delightful book. I don’t usually do product reviews, mainly because I don’t get review copies of books or yarn; when I buy for myself, I tend to go for similar yarn and I...

Marilyn Monroe Book Blog -

Please scroll down to read the review in English Museo Salvatore Ferragamo Firenzessä, Italiassa järjesti vuonna 2012 Marilyn-näyttelyn, jossa nähtiin kenkien lisäksi muun muassa Marilynin vaatteita. Näyttelyn pohjalta koostettiin kirja, nimeltään yksinkertaisen ytimekkäästi Marilyn. Kyseessä ei ole mikään ohut näyttelykatalogi, vaan suurikokoinen kuvateos, joka sisältää myös esseitä ja pohdintaa ilmiöstä nimeltä Marilyn. Esseet vaihtelevat tasoltaan paljonkin. Esimerkiksi...

Please scroll down to read the review in English Ennen kuin Gary Vitacco-Robles julkaisi mahtavan täyspitkän elämäkerran, Iconin , hän kirjoitti kirjan, joka keskittyi aivan erityiseen osa-alueeseen Marilynin elämässä. Cursum Perficio, Marilyn Monroe's Brentwood Hacienda kertoo Marilynin viimeisistä kuukausista hänen ensimmäisessä ikiomassa kodissaan. Talo kiinnostaa Marilyn-faneja monesta syystä: se nähdään Marilynin itsenäisyydenosoituksena, hänen luonteensa symbolina ja...

Luen kirjoja mielestäni aivan liian vähän. Tämän vuoden tavoitteena oli lukea vähintään 30 kirjaa, mutta nyt loka-marraskuun vaihteessa lukema on vasta 12! Teini-iässä ahmin kirjoja mutten laskenut.  Viisikot, Tarzanit, Päätalot, Vonnegutit, Asimovit ja paljon muuta ja sarjakuvat. Lukeminen väheni, ainakin kirjojen kun lähdin opiskelemaan ja myöhemin työelämään. Miksi näin? Aika ei riitä

Marilyn Monroe Book Blog -

Please scroll down to read the review in English Vuonna 2008 Marilyn-maailma kohisi: kaksi arkistokaappia täynnä Marilyn Monroen papereita oli löydetty. Kaikki oli arkistoitu siististi kansioihin, ja kun ne avattiin, paljastui pala kadoksissa ollutta Marilynin elämää. Arkistossa oli niin henkilökohtaisia kirjeitä, sähkeitä, kuitteja, valokuvia... kaikkea arkipäiväistä, jota ihmiseltä jää jälkeensä. Kaappien sisältöä pidettiin Marilyn-tutkimuksen Rosettan kivenä. Ja juuri...

Please scroll down to read the review in English Frederic Cabanas on espanjalainen Marilynista kiinnostunut mies, joka paitsi on kirjoittanut useamman kirjan Marilynista myös pitää Euroopan ainoaa Marilyn-museota. Hänen kirjansa ovat keräilykappaleita, sillä niitä ei ihan joka kaupassa myydä. Cabanasin Marilyn in Spain on yksi kirja-aarteistani, ja keväällä sain toisenkin kirjan, ytimekkäästi nimetyn Marilyn Monroen. Marilyn Monroe keskittyy Marilyn-kirjoihin. Cabanas on lajitellut...

Please scroll down to read the review in English Tätä kirjaa odotin innolla, joten tilasin sen heti kun se julkaistiin. Se saapui 3. elokuuta, siis samalla viikolla kuin oli Marilynin muistotilaisuus. En kuitenkaan malttanut antaa sen odottaa paria päivää, vaan tempaisin paketin auki ja ilahduin jo kauniista kannesta. Marilyn Monroe: A Day in the Life on aikajana Marilynin elämästä. Varmasti monet fanit ovat koonneet aikajanoja jossain vaiheessa, mutta on hienoa, että sellainen on...

July wasn't a great reading month, but it's Summer, there's so much other stuff to do in addition to reading. 76. Tiina Raevaara: Korppinaiset Tämä romaani on itsenäinen jatko kirjalle Yö ei saa tulla . Päähenkilöt ovat samat, mutta tilanne on hyvin erilainen. Romaanissa käsitellään kuolemaa, kuoleman läheisyyttä, ja lintuja. Olen pitänyt näistä kummastakin romaanista todella paljon ja myös suositellut niitä sisarelleni. 77.- 78. Lois McMaster Bujold: "Penric's Demon" and...

Another attempt at monthly updates. I'm actually at a great reading mode this year. 75 books by the end of Junes, so I might even reach 140-150 by the end of the year. But that always depends on the reading, since some books take more time and effort than others. 66. P. N. Elrod (ed.): Hex Appeal and 67. Paula Guran (ed.): Vampires: The Recent Undead Ok theme anthologies, with some better stories and some not-so-good stories. 68. Johanna Sinisalo: Auringon ydin Mielenkiintoinen kertomus...

Heh, well, looks like my good intentions of updating more often this year didn't actually work out. I really need to work on that. But that hasn't stopped me from reading and I'm well on track on my goal of reading at least 100 books this year. However, since I'm at about 65 books now, I just can't be bothered to talk about all the books I've read, so I decided to go for a 'best of' -option. :) 20.

February was a much slower reading month than January, mostly because the book I read or was reading didn't grab me that much, or in one case I'm still slowly reading and savouring a book that I'll probably finish this month. 16. Ekaterina Sedia: The Secret History of Moscow This book is set in Moscow in the 1990s, where people are suddenly turning into birds. A small group sets to investigate this mystery and to find one woman's missing sister. During their investigation, they find an...

I haven't been active in updating this journal for a while now. I guess at some point a few years ago, I just got burned out on reviewing and writing in general after having done that very actively for several years. It also didn't help that much of fandom moved over to Tumblr etc. which is just not suited for long text comments or in-depth analysis of books/tv/movies/whatever. This year I decided to try to revive this journal a bit and at least try to make monthly book/media comments which...

Last year I read less books than I wanted. I had my goal set on 100 books, at least, a figure I usually reach very easily. This year had a lot of other stuff that took my time and concentration away from reading, but I still read several very good books. Some statistical data: 87 works read, 74 in English, 11 in Finnish, and 2 in Swedish. 32 of them were e-books and 10 were graphic novels. View Poll: Books 2015

I've been feeling for a while now that I could begin writing about books again, so what better way to start than to comment on the best reads of 2014. I'm not going to do any numbered listing, just comment on the most memorable reads with some silly categories. Best YA Janni Lee Simner's Bones of Faerie (reread) and Faerie Winter Set in a postacopalyptic world where a war between humans and faerie damaged both worlds, and left wild magic among humans. A young girl set out to find her mother...

outrageous outings -

three years ago i was quite in tune with my inner bookworm judging from a little note i wrote about admiration . nevertheless, being the one-click addict that i am, my amazon shipments have lately included a couple of memoirs – literature i knew to steer clear of before. judging from how i feel right now, i probably should have kept on avoiding them. since i never really discuss books here, this may seem an odd way to start – although i am not promising any continuance – but here goes...
