“Call Me By Your Name”

Yes, once again an article about a work by André Aciman. At this point, I could probably rename this blog "The Great André Aciman-Blog" or "The Call Me By Your Name Is Simply Beautiful-Blog". But once again I have to write about this book and the accompanying film, as the time has finally come that … Continue reading “Call Me By Your Name”


“Eight White Nights” by André Aciman

Hey you guys, long time no see, I know. In my head, I wrote about a hundred new blog posts, in reality, I didn't even manage to write a "Happy New Year" post. Well, here it is, only one month late. I wish you all a belated Happy New Year and here is my first … Continue reading “Eight White Nights” by André Aciman

“Wenn es Weihnachten wird” von Max Richard Leßmann

Es ist so weit, Weihnachten steht nicht nur vor der Tür, sondern ist bereits in vollem Gange. Die Familie ist da, es gibt Geschenke und Essen und die üblichen Filme flimmern über den Bildschirm. Und Musik? Ja, auch da gibt es die altbekannten Klassiker. Da wären die großen Weihnachtshits, oder aber Michael Bublé, der gefühlt … Continue reading “Wenn es Weihnachten wird” von Max Richard Leßmann

“Murder On The Orient Express” by Agatha Christie

I personally up to this point had never read or even watched anything by Agatha Christie. Sure, I glimpsed the occasional "Miss Marple" on television at home when I grew up, but I never really paid much attention to it, as crime fiction is not really my prime interest. When "Murder On The Orient Express", however, … Continue reading “Murder On The Orient Express” by Agatha Christie

Stranger Things 2

Hey there, I'm back! Sorry for not posting for so long, but this whole adult-thing has kept me quite busy for the last few weeks. So busy, in fact, that I neither managed to post stuff nor to even watch or read stuff. Okay, that last one is a lie, I did watch some stuff (all … Continue reading Stranger Things 2

Stephen King’s “It”

It has been exactly 27 years since Stephen King's "It" was first adapted into a film, so naturally, it is time for Pennywise to make a long-awaited return. Personally, when I was 14 years old, I swore to myself that I would never again have anything to do with that dreadful creature. Having tried to … Continue reading Stephen King’s “It”

“Pure Comedy” by Father John Misty

I have to admit that until recently I was never really much into Father John Misty. I had heard of him, of course, but ever since I gave his first record a listen and didn't really like it that much, to me he was just the dude that used to be in Fleet Foxes and … Continue reading “Pure Comedy” by Father John Misty

Wes Anderson’s “Isle Of Dogs”

Is there a better way to start the day than with some good old-fashioned Wes Anderson news? I doubt it. Thankfully, the trailer for his upcoming film "Isle Of Dogs" just dropped, so put down everything you were doing and watch it right this second. Half a year ago, we already got a first glimpse … Continue reading Wes Anderson’s “Isle Of Dogs”

Netflix’s “Atypical”

Netflix has given us many great original series. "House Of Cards", "Orange Is The New Black", "Narcos", "Stranger Things" and the controversial "13 Reasons Why" are just some examples. Over the last months, they've added quite a few more, with one series catching my interest in particular after a while. "Atypical" might not be a … Continue reading Netflix’s “Atypical”

“Love Letters To The Dead” by Ava Dellaira

The books I have read lately all had one thing in common: they were on the darker side. After all, Stephen King's "IT" (I will write about that as soon as the film is out here in Germany), Ian McEwan's "Atonement", Kazuo Ishiguro's "Never Let Me Go" or Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale" wouldn't exactly … Continue reading “Love Letters To The Dead” by Ava Dellaira
