“Hey, vent lige lidt,” siger min mor. “Er i ved at anklage Khalil og Starr eller den betjent, der slog ham ihjel?”
Wilkes ser op fra sine noter.
“Jeg… jeg forstår ikke helt?” Udbryder Gomez.
“I har ikke spurgt min datter om ham betjenten endnu,” siger min mor. “Du bliver ved at spørge om Khalil, som om han selv er grunden til, at han er død. Som min datter sagde, skød han jo ikke sig selv.”

Kender i følelsen af at glæde sig helt vildt til en bog, fordi man af en eller anden grund allerede ved at den vil knuse ens hjerte på den gode måde? Det er sådan jeg havde det med The Hate U Give indtil jeg fik fingrene i den, og jeg blev bestemt ikke skuffet! Continue reading Boganmeldelse: The Hate U Give

Top 5: Kommende Danske Udgivelser

Så! Endelig kom mit første danske blog indlæg!

*ahøm* Det var også på tide *ahøm ahøm*

Jeg har nogle danske udgivelser som jeg glæder mig rigtig meget til, og dem vil jeg naturligvis lige dele med jer. Nogle af dem fandt jeg helt tilfældigt da jeg kiggede rundt på plusbog.dk – som jeg personligt syntes er bedre at navigere rundt i end saxo.dk – for de har en side der hedder Kommende Bøger. Meget praktisk for en der elsker bøger!

Lad mig vise jer hvilke bøger jeg glæder mig allermest til. Continue reading Top 5: Kommende Danske Udgivelser

What I’ve Read In 2017 – Part 1

Since we’re halfway through the year, I thought it’d be fun to do a “wrap-up” of what I’ve read so far.

I haven’t finished a book since… april I think, or I think Harry Potter was finished in May but that’s it. I am a little bit behind, in my own opinion, but according to Goodreads I am 1 book ahead of schedule! So that’s good, I suppose, haha. I am currently reading The Lost World by Michael Crichton and I am LOVING IT. I will make a Jurassic Park appreciation blog entry some time during this summer!

Book Review: Wintersong (Spoilerfree)

Title: Wintersong | Author: S. Jae-Jones | Edition: Hardback | Pages: 436
Language: English | Published 2017 | Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books

Synopsis

The last night of the year. Now the days of winter begin and the Goblin King rides abroad, searching for his bride…

All her life, Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, dangerous Goblin King. They’ve enraptured her mind and spirit and inspired her musical compositions. Now eighteen and helping to run her family’s inn, Liesl can’t help but feel that her musical dreams and childhood fantasies are slipping away.

But when her own sister is taken by the Goblin King, Liesl has no choice but to journey to the Underground to save her. Drawn to the strange, captivating world she finds – and the mysterious man who rules it – she soon faces an impossible decision. With time and the old laws working against her, Liesl must discover who she truly is before her fate is sealed.

“I am not afraid of you,” I said quietly.
“Oh?” The Goblin King lifted his head. “I am the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground,” he said, mismatched eyes glinting. “I am wildness and madness made flesh. You’re just a girl”– he smiled, and the tips of his teeth were sharp — “and I am the wolf in the woods.”

Review

This was a dark, mysterious and extremely enthralling read! I can’t remember when I was this excited about a book! Probably not since I read Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson. Wintersong was mysterious in the most tasteful way; it had a dark atmosphere, with imperfect characters and an extremely captivating Goblin King. If you really want a visual of what the book’s atmosphere is like, take a good look the cover! I have never seen a book cover so perfect for the actual story within. The light and the dark looks like the world above and the Underground. The rose inside the glass ball represents the love that blossoms but also stings because of the thorns. Ugh. It’s hands down one of my all-time favorite covers!

I just… I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH! Continue reading Book Review: Wintersong (Spoilerfree)

The Book Bucket List

I saw Reagan from Peruse Project post a video with this tag – Book Bucket List – and thought it would be fun to make a blog with the same tag!

So this tag is about the books you definitely want to read during your lifetime (it’s like a tbr pile for life). You want to read them but can’t be sure WHEN you’ll get to read them. You just know that you’ll read them one day.

So without further ado, here’s my book bucket list: Continue reading The Book Bucket List
