Mad fox, bad fox, just another dead fox.
я решила что мне надо научиться писать обзоры книг (и вообще больше читать и писать в принципе), а то библиотекарь я или нет в конце концов. Ну вот и буду записывать книги которые прочитала в этом году, заодно посмотрим сколько я читаю за год. У меня есть колллега которая читает в районе 230 книг за год! О_О

Первая книга 2017го, а также последняя книга 2016го была:

The Tygrine Cat/Iserles, Inbali
The Tygrine Cat on the Run/Iserles, Inbali

A well written animal fantasy from one of the authors of Survivors series. A very different looking cat appears suddenly at a busy London market place. He doesn’t remember where he comes from, only that his name is Mati and he came to London by ship from a far away land. Local cats had allowed him to stay but the newcomer is viewed with suspicion. Soon enough there is plenty of reasons for suspicion to be justified as strange and unprecedented events begin to occur with Mati seemingly in the thick of it. Little do the local cats know that ancient and powerful forces are about to enter their lives and their peaceful market place will become a battleground for the essence of the Cat’s spirit.
I like animals and I like fantasy and I really liked Inbali’s Foxcraft series but there is way too much fantasy in these books for me. It all ties up really well in the end but I do prefer a simpler world of Warrior Cats. Themes of love, friendship, loyalty and courage are the corner stones of these books. As they should be seeing that these are books for school age children. Still, I’ve enjoyed them. Apart from being a great storyteller, I think Inbali has knack for coming up with some good memorable rhymes as well. As a person who enjoys poetry this small aspect had certainly added to the overall pleasure of reading her books.

Getting started in shares for dummies / Dunn, James
This is a good book for both beginners and those with a basic experience and an understanding of a share market. You will definitely learn something new whether it’s a new tax tip or a fascinating piece of corporate history. Just like the rest of ‘for Dummies’ series the book is organised well and is easy to understand. Unlike so many US centric books on the subject this one is focused on the ASX and Australia and provides useful insights both into the market and our tax system. It also covers the basics of personal investing principles. It’s was published in 2016 so it is very current and I do recommend it to any Australian who is interested to learn more about investing in shares. My personal take away from this book: shares require way more attention than I am prepared to give to my investments so its ETFs all the way for this grateful reader.

The Faithful and the Fallen trilogy/Gwynne, John
The Last Wild trilogy/ Torday, Piers
The N2 Feline detective agency/ Morton, Mandy
Cat among the pumpkins : a Hattie Bagshot mystery / Morton, Mandy
The Death of a Downton Tabby / Morton, Mandy
The simple path to wealth : your roadmap to financial independance / Collins, J.L.
The barefoot investor : the only money guide you'll ever need / Pape, Scott

Brilliant! Loved it! Actually liked it more than some of the other WC series.
