February Wrap up - Book Haul & What to Expect Next Month

Welcome, welcome my dear readers.
Welcome to the blog.

Last month I kept it very short and told you about me calling in sick and staying home from work.
It's not about the work, but more about me having loads of panic attacks and not being able to recover from it.
The last month has been all about acceptance and recovery. I'm having a very strict routine every day and I try to walk a lot, since I'm not yet allowed to do intense sports like my handball or squash.

I do feel like I'm getting better. I'm less tired, I have less panic attacks and my brain fog is lifting; I was forgetting a lot of things and I feel like that's going better too! And now it's all about finding the balance and keeping the balance...

I've have been reading, but since I'm reading in and listening to big books, I've not written that much reviews. I did write a Two Short Stories post and other blog posts, so I have been active, and I'm okay with that!

Thanks for sticking with my blog and for reading!
Happy upcoming Spring!

Review: Roadside Picnic

Arkady & Boris Strugatsky
Started reading: January 20th 2022
Finished the book: February 1st 2022
Pages: 145
Genres: Classics, Science Fiction, Dystopian
Published: 1972
Source: Digital Copy
Goodreads score: 4.16
My score:
Red Schuhart is a stalker, one of those young rebels who are compelled, in spite of extreme danger, to venture illegally into the Zone to collect the mysterious artifacts that the alien visitors left scattered around. His life is dominated by the place and the thriving black market in the alien products. But when he and his friend Kirill go into the Zone together to pick up a “full empty,” something goes wrong. And the news he gets from his girlfriend upon his return makes it inevitable that he’ll keep going back to the Zone, again and again, until he finds the answer to all his problems.

First published in 1972, Roadside Picnic is still widely regarded as one of the greatest science fiction novels, despite the fact that it has been out of print in the United States for almost thirty years.
