books of 2016

I’ve been keeping track of my books with goodreads for a while now, and in  2016 I  set a goal of 100 books,which I achieved,with hours to spare.

Mainly thanks to audiobooks and graphic novels,I must say.

Movie review: “Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find them”

a book review and vaguely related ramblings

 

I just finished this book. I really liked it. it was very interesting, a bit heartbreaking and quite familiar.

what follows is a tragic portrait of what it means to be anything other than straight in a catholic setting and how awful the ignorance and hatred can make kids feel. I wanted to strangle several characters for their behaviour and hug the poor girl.
