Books I’ve read in 2016

I know, already one month of the new year has passed, but I wanted to write this post since I finished my last book. However, due to exams, I was simply too busy. In December 2015 I set myself a goal on Goodreads – 12 books in one year. Okay, this sounds like nothing. And when I browsed through the reading challenge of my friends I realised that I was by far the one with the smallest goal. But you know what, I didn’t care. Because for me it was more important to set myself a realistic and an achievable aim.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens

After reading my very first novel by Charles Dickens it was clear for me that I’ll be reading more novels by him.

What even astonished me more was the fact that they are not British at all. We actually have something in common – living in Switzerland.

Editors – The Back Room ~ Me Myself And My Music

How could I forget that I have this album in my collection? The Editors, an English rock band released in the year 2005 a what one could call indie-rock, post-punk album. The astonishing thing about it is that this powerful and well-conceived album is their debut.  However, one would never guess by only listening to it that it was produced in the 21st century as the sound reminds a lot of the post-punk wave in the 1980ies. Not only the music but also the singer’s deep voice is reminiscent of great bands like for example Joy Division or R.E.M.
