    OWLs Magical Readathon 2020

    OWLs Magical Readathon 2020 In April, I participated in the OWLs Magical Readathon 2020 hosted by Book Roast. It’s a reading event that took place during the month of April 2020. The theme lines up with the wizarding world of Harry Potter and it’s about “taking your magical exams” also known as the “O.W.L.s”. This is done by reading a certain type of book for each subject that you would imagine attending. So, what did I actually manage to read for this event and how many “subjects” did I complete? I read a lot of books in April, although not all of them fit the criteria and thus didn’t count…

    What I read in April 2020

    What I read in April 2020 It’s time to find out what I read in April 2020. Let’s wrap up the month and see what books I read, liked, didn’t like and more. I’ll also dive into a few readathons I’ve participated in. Maybe we will even get around to see if I made any progress on my reading challenges in April 2020. First of all, I just want to stress the fact that I don’t see reading as a competition and I do have months where I don’t read anything, and other times where I read a lot of books. It all depends on my mood, my sparetime and…

    Playlist Readathon 2020

    Playlist Readathon 2020 This blogpost about the Playlist Readathon will be in Danish, since the readathon announcement is by Danish booktuber Blossoming Reading. The Playlist Readathon 2020 af Josefine May er en læseudfordring for april måned 2020. Josefine May offentliggjorde udfordringen på hendes youtube kanal og har lavet rigtig flot grafik til også, så man kunne downloade det og være med i udfordringen. The Playlist Readathon går ud på at man vælger et årti (eller flere), som man gerne vil “læse”. Til hvert årti er der 5 stikord eller ‘prompts’, og så gælder det om at finde en bog, der passer til. Da jeg også læste til OWLs Magical Readathon…

    Book review: Rotherweird

    Book review of Rotherweird by Andrew Caldecott This is a book review of Rotherweird by Andrew Caldecott. A book about a weirdly whimsical and secluded town with plenty of Tudor age secrets. Rotherweird is the first part of a trilogy. Find it right here on Book Depository or Amazon [affiliate links] Summary I have humbly borrowed this blurp from the back of the book: “1558: Twelve children, gifted far beyond their years, are banished by their Tudor queen to the town of Rotherweird. Some say they are the golden generation; some say the devil’s spawn. But everyone knows they are something to be revered – and feared. Four and a…

    Book review: Circe by Madeline Miller

    Book review of Circe by Madeline Miller This is my book review of Circe by Madeline Miller. It’s a retelling of the story of Circe, who was believed to be one of the first witches in greek mythology. Summary of Circe “In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child—not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power—the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.” The description of Circe above is…

    Book review: Conversation-Sinfonietta

    Book review of Conversation-Sinfonietta by Jean Tardieu This book review of Conversation-Sinfonietta by Jean Tardieu, is part of my “A play a week” reading challenge. I aim to read 52 plays in a year, and I’ll review every single one right here on the blog! A symphony of conversation It’s a script meant for staging a basic conversation as if it was a choir singing together. This means a few repeated lines between the characters, who are named by their tone of voice. The script for Conversation-Sinfonietta suggested placing the actors in accordance with how you would place singers in a choir set-up. (The image below does not correspond with…

    Book review: The Keyhole

    Book review of The Keyhole by Jean Tardieu This book review of The Keyhole by Jean Tardieu, is a part of my “A play a week” reading challenge. Basically, it means that I try to read a play each week for a year, ending up with 52 scripts in total. So really, The Keyhole is more a script than an actual book. The Keyhole and absurd voyerism This script definitely had a lot going on in the subtext. Not in the naturalistic way obviously, but I saw this script play out in my mind in so many different ways while reading it. It was like the opposite feeling of reading…
