For min del, er det litt varierende etter årstid. En plass som "alltid" fungerer er sofaen. Andre plasser jeg liker å lese, er blant annet Coffeeberry på Sandnes og bokkafeen på UiS. I tillegg er det en en benk jeg liker rett utforbi et av byggene på campus, men den passer best i sommerhalvåret når det er fint vær.
As it's 2023 in less than two months, I figured out it was time to annouce the 2023 Diversity Reading Challenge. I’m not going to make any categories or levels for this challenge, as I want it to be a bit flexible. Read as many books as you feel like reading and yes, it can be children’s books, graphic novels, e-books, non-fiction, audio books, poetry and you-name-it. As it is a diversity reading challenge, it would be mean to exclude some types of reading materials, right? Now, what is diversity you might ask? What I mean by diversity is, but not limited to; People of colour/non-caucasian characters/authors Native Americans and other indigenous people LGBTQIA+ Authors/characters defining themselves as trans, intersex, genderfluid or similar Refugees Religious minorities Mental illnesses/disorders Neurodiversity (like ADHD and autism) Feminist themes/issues Physical/mental disabilities Characters/authors with chronic health issues Characters/authors in wheelchairs Characters/autho
I read the horror novel The Prettiest Girl in the Grave by Kristopher Triana earlier this year and today I'll post my review of the book. Description from Goodreads From the author of international horror sensation Gone to See the River Man comes a new tale of terror that will drag you to the darkest corners of the soul. Some girls are fearful, others are brave. One girl’s a princess, the next one, a slave. But all girls are equal, when they’re down in this cave, until just one is left standing—The Prettiest Girl in the Grave. It’s only supposed to be a game. When Bella, Celeste, and Rose meet with new friends at a graveyard in the woods, they soon realize they’re unprepared for what’s planned. At twenty-four, Aubrey is older than the high schoolers, and she knows of a secret game that’s been played by local girls for decades. It starts with personal questions, but quickly moves on to a test of courage as Aubrey guides them into an underground crypt. But even Aubrey doesn’t know w
I've been going back and forth for over a year whether or not to keep blogging or to quit/taking a break, and at last I've reached the point where I feel I need a much needed break from it all. I'm doing it in part due to the fact that a lot of readers in general go to either Goodreads or Amazon for book reviews and/or social media such as Instagram or TikTok for bookish inspiration in general, and I've to a certain extent lost readers because of it. Another major aspect for the break is the fact that reading and book blogging has turned into such a chore that I despise reading at this point and I'm almost tempted to burn my gigantic book collection (don't worry, I haven't lost all my marbles quite yet, so fear not). Hopefully in time, I'll get my joy of reading back and in the meantime I'll lay this blog to rest. I may come back to book blogging or I'll quit entirely, but time will tell. No matter what, it's no small feat managing a blog fo
