Tentacle Words - the Swedish Bookworm
Love, travel, Galapagos – this is a lovely literary vacation
Can you really finish a book in just two days? Of course, and to be honest, it was only because I had to go to work and one night's beauty sleep that I did not devour the whole Shipped faster. On the other hand, I woke up extra early (at 4 am!) Because I simply had to read on.
Possibly the best book of last year
What a plot! And the narrative has such a drive to it. The characters are so complex that from one side to the other you are not sure what will happen, who is the villain and who is the hero. So cleverly written.
My BookCation this far
Some sun, some rain – that’s one way of describing not only my two week sailing but also my BookCation this far. Tonight I’m sitting safely in my own, not rocking bed even if it feels like it, trying to sort out my thoughts about my summer reading so far. I’ll be back soon with som recommendations – and some ”stay away from this book”/anti recommendations too. I wish you all a nice BookCation!
Far from your everyday read
This is far from your everyday read and really recommend you take a long Sunday in your favourite couch and just read. But read slow, you have to be there from the very first words on the very first page.
The Christmas Party
The family is broke and when the only way to save their problems seems to be to sell it - to a bloody Englishman! - the sisters and their mother is confronted with some tough decisions. Will it tare them apart, or can the big Christmas party save them?
There is a pirate in the basement
Seven years ago i fell in love. Utterly and completely. The beautiful language of Erin Morgensterns and her magical storytelling swept me of my feet.
A bet, a cold case and some French je ne sais quoi
The combination of a bet, a cold case and the French je ne c'est quoi feels so good. With his somewhat odd hero May tells us about a missing person case that turns into a hunt for a murderer.
What’s wrong with men
Both Råttkungen and The Doll Factory are very skillfully written and it's hard, nearly impossible to stop reading - the best thing you can say about a book if you ask me.
To yearn for some healing sleep
Sleep is undoubtedly a thrilling book, although the concept of the remote island in this case totally cut of from the rest of the world is old, it doesn't make it any less scary. And why would it, it's a brilliant concept and the suggestive, desolate environment of the island at the top of Scotland is undeniably making its mark.
More thrilling and scary than I expected
All in all Nightflyers was a pleasant surprise, definitely more thrilling and scary than I expected.
