Happy Friday everyone! My thesis is still consuming pretty much all of my time - I've solved the database problem (I think), but I'm getting a bit worried about my program's computation time when confronted with polynomials of higher degree... It's been running for three full days since it delivered the last set of data, … Continue reading Comparing US and German Book Covers (Part 3)

Happy Friday, everyone! I know, I know - two book reviews in one week? Even though I don't particularly like writing them?

Perhaps because we all fear that such knowledge would fall into the hands of one not worthy to use it.”(Royal Assassin, p. 1) Happy Sunday, everyone!

Happy Friday, everyone! You're getting another tag today, because after the whirlwind of a week I've had, I'm way too lazy exhaused to write anything too elaborate 😁 First, my phone somehow decided now would be the perfect time to go into auto-destruct mode, which means I've been scrambling to get a replacement and trying … Continue reading The Bookish Snob Tag

Hi everyone, happy Sunday!
This is just a quick heads up before I get back to studying for my Russian oral tomorrow 😉 As you may or may not know, Riddhi over at Whispering Stories has recently been doing a series of blogger interviews, where she talks to different people all around our community every Sunday. Anyway, today I had the great honor of being featured on Riddhi’s blog, so if any of you would like to check that post out and discover a few more things about me that I might not have shared on here yet, you’re more than welcome to!
Also, if you’re not already following her, I would also highly recommend checking out some of Riddhi’s other amazing content. I don’t know how she does it, but she posts such a variety of creative things on Whispering Stories and she even recently started a second blog, poems and poesies, where she posts some of her poetry. Trust me, it’s definitely worth reading!
Anyway, I’d better get back to studying now 😅 I’ll see you on Friday with my regular post!
Hello everybuddy! As you may or may not know, in late December, I announced that I will be doing a series of blogger interviews and the fourth one’s here!
Today I will be interviewing one of my favourite bloggers- Naemi from A Book Owl’s Corner. I have often talked to Naemi in the comments and we have also talked via emails once or twice! But this interview provides more of an insight to her life, so I am excited! Let’s get started!
Me: So, Naemi, tell me something about yourself.
Naemi: This is already such a difficult question to start off with! I don’t think I’m actually that interesting, to be honest. Just your regular old math and English student who loves to talk about books in her free time.
But one thing that I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned on my blog is that I live in this…
