Books about the Internet & social media

I’ve been wanting to write this post for ages because I wanted to finish How to Do Nothing by Jenny Odell so that I could talk about it as well. Unfortunately, I didn’t end up liking it, so it’s not going to be featured here. Therefore, I decided not to wait any longer, and just write this piece. Today I’m going to recommend eight books that are either about the Internet or social media. There are books on this list which focus less on these topics and more on psychology or neurobiology, but overall, you couldn’t go wrong with any of these choices, if you wished to learn a lot.

Wrap-ups

December wrap-up // Thank you, next

Hey December, guess I’m feeling unmoored… I wish I could say that the first month of winter was absolutely marvellous, and I fell in love with this season as I was hoping. But nope, that, unfortunately, didn’t happen, and I’m really sad about it. Even Christmas wasn’t that enjoyable as my father got sick just before Christmas Eve, and a few days later my mom and I got sick as well. So now I spend my time escaping into TV shows, movies and the Percy Jackson universe. I wasn’t really in the mood for reading this month, I finished four books.

2022 recap: bookish

Last time, I told you all about my nonbookish favourites of this year, now it’s time for what we’re all here for: books! I’m not going to go into specific statistics, as I’m planning to do an entire post for that, I’d just like to share my favourites from each category. I’ve read quite a lot of amazing novels this year, so it was hard narrowing them down.

Nonbookish

2022 recap: nonbookish

I’ve been anticipating writing this post for weeks now, and it’s finally time! This is going to be my sixth year of documenting my year on a blog, though only the third one here on this one. I love looking back at them, and seeing what I chose to highlight. We’re at the end of 2022, what a year! So many things happened, and it just flew by like it never happened.

2023 reading resolutions

The last time I wrote a reading resolutions kind of post was in 2020, back when I still had my Hungarian blog. I used to write them yearly, so I kind of miss that, that’s why I’m here today! I’ve always loved writing lists, especially resolutions, but then making sure to keep those promises throughout the whole year? That was not my forte, but I still wrote them every end of the year. So this year, this is mostly going to be an outline of hopeful resolutions I would like to keep, but if not, that’s totally fine too. Let’s jump into this post then!

Book tags

Christmas Songs Book Tag

The lovely Caro @ bookcheshirecat tagged me recently to do this book tag, which I gladly accepted. After all, this tag combines Christmas, music and books! What could be better than that? (If you added baked goods to the mix, that would be even better, haha.) The tag was originally created by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. Let’s get started, shall we?

Challenges

2022 bookish challenges wrap-up

It’s that time of year again to start wrapping up things and planning for next year. This is the first of many posts, and I couldn’t be more excited! In 2022, I had two plus one reading challenges (one I came up with late in the year): a Rory Gilmore challenge, Getting serious with series and most recently, Dickens vs Tolstoy (which is not just a yearly thing but I wanted to talk about it). This year I finally realised that I really don’t do well with long-term commitments, but more on that later.
