I was tagged by the lovely Ann’s Reading Corner. She holds a corner of cyberspace, and it’s just for reading! So go there and check it out and enjoy all the bookish goodness^^


CELTIC PUNK:
FAVORITE OBSCURE BOOK/A BOOK WITH A NON-WESTERN SETTING

Hm… Tricky one, most of what I read is set in a medieval European setting. I’ll have to consult my bookshelves for this. Let’s see what they have to say…

CLASSICAL:
FAVOURITE CLASSIC/BOOK THAT SHOULD BECOME A CLASSIC

 Haven’t read many classics, to be honest just two and I didn’t really like them. But I have a third that I consider a classic, and I love it! So that’s my choice.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

How I Chose My Books Tag

Back in my own apartment! This is wonderful! And this means I have time for blogging (and probably more energy). So I got tagged by Jay @ This Is My Truth Now a month ago for this fun tag. Thank you! I loved reading your answers! Hopefully I’ll do as good 🙂 So let’s take a look at how I chose my books.


Find a Book on your shelves or e-reader with a blue cover.
What made you want to pick up this book?

The Novice

The Novice (Summoner #1) by Taran Matharu

I really like the cover of this book, and then I read the synopsis and my hopes were so high! The story is about a demon summoner and his journey. I was imagining gory necromancy and a beautifully crafted tale on the questionable line of good. It wasn’t exactly that. To be honest it wasn’t anything close to that. But well, that was why I picked this book up and I did like it when reading it. I needed some unoriginal stuff in between the Wheel of Time books.

Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy, but did.
Why did you read it in the first  place?

NomadplanetenNomadplaneten by Emanuel Blume

I was a bit unsure about this, but it was the first (and so far the only) physical book offer I’ve gotten so it basically was impossible to say no. It’s a sci-fi, which is a genre I never really reach for, but I am so glad I did accept this one! It does a great job of covering very relevant subjects today in a futuristic world. Hopefully it will be translated into English. Sometimes it does pay off picking up something you normally wouldn’t pick up.

Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick a book at random.

Fight Like a YA Girl Book Tag

Be prepared for a lot of tips on strong female leads…

So I was not tagged by The Book Prophet to match YA girls to some descriptions, but I saw her do it and really want to do it. I just really hope I’ve read enough YA to have enough characters… Tend to read everything from children’s fantasy to adult fantasy so it might be a challenge. Let’s see how it goes!

Rules:
  • Thank the person who tagged you
  • Mention the creator Krysti at YA and Wine
  • Match at least one YA girl with each of the themes below
  • Tag as many people as you’d like!

It is so important for everyone to see examples of strong women in books, television, and movies. There are so many ways in which women exhibit strength, so this tag is meant to be a celebration of some those strengths.

Warrior Girls

Raisa ana’Marianna from The Seven Realms series and Celaena Sardothien from the Throne of Glass series are definitely two fighters you cannot not mention.

Girls Who Fight With Their Mind

Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series and Denna (Dianne, Dinnah… Whatever she wants to call herself) from The Name of the Wind. Luna doesn’t care about what others think and uses her peculiar mind to get through basically everything. Denna is using her wits to get what she needs from the world, but it isn’t easy.

Mid-Year Freak Out 2017

I did this last year and it feels like I should do it again, make it an annual thing 🙂 So let’s take a look at what I’ve read this far this year. It feels good, my Goodreads goal is 40 books and I’ve gone through 23 already. So no stress on that point.

If you’re interested in last year’s post, CLICK HERE.


Best book I’ve read so far in 2017

words of radiance

Words of Radiance (The Stormlight Archive #2) by Brandon Sanderson. This book blew my mind and I’m desperate for the third book! Sadly it hasn’t come out yet. What Sanderson has done with this book and this world is beyond anything I’ve previously read. This series will be a masterpiece that deserves to stand beside Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. If you’re not intimidated by big books and big stories, pick this up as soon as possible. If you are intimidated, give it a try anyway, you won’t regret it.

Best sequel I’ve read so far in 2017

The Crimson Campaign

The Crimson Campaign (The Powder Mage Trilogy #2) by Brian McClellan. I went into this series not knowing what to expect, and I had my mind blown. When I got to the second book I couldn’t help but feel amazed, a second book that was even better than the first one? That shouldn’t happen, it’s against the natural law (in most cases is seems like that anyway).

The setting and the characters in this trilogy are well written and the story drags you in and won’t leave you alone. Didn’t expect to like this as much as I did. The audiobook narration is great so that is definitely an option if you don’t have the time to sit down and read.

Most anticipated release for the second half of the year

The High School Book Tag

I was tagged by Jasmine @ How Useful It Is so long ago it is embarrassing! May 15… Now it is July 6th. I am so sorry for this taking so long, but thank you Jasmine so much for tagging me! Now I’m finally getting to it and I hope you (and everyone else) will enjoy my answers 🙂

The rules:
  • Thank the creators: Namitha @ Teen Memoir and Jasmine @ How Useful It Is, THANK YOU!
  • Answer the questions.
  • Add pictures! (If you want to)
  • Tag (about) 5 people.

A+ on the test
A book or character that makes you smile?

How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse

Should I go for the obvious one? No, I think I’ll try to be more creative than that. So instead I chose How to Cheat a Dragon’s Curse (How to Train Your Dragon #4) by Cressida Cowell. This one makes me smile just thinking of the Swedish title Hur du stjäl en potatis, which loosely translates to How you steal a potato.

Sports team
A fictional family that you want to be a part of?

The Weasley Family

This time I cannot go for anything else than Harry Potter related, the Weasly family. Who wouldn’t love to be part of this amazing and loving family?

Class President
A book that tries to make a difference?
