    What I read in May 2020

    What I read in May 2020 It’s time to find out what I read in May 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 I made progress on my reading challenges in May 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 whatever else is going on.  So please, don’t feel…

    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…

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.

    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…

    Reading plans for May 2020

    Reading plans for May Welcome to my reading plans for May 2020! So, as I have started to get more into readathons, reading challenges and events recently, I though I’d try something new on the blog. Which is a (maybe monthly?) blogpost with my reading plans for the upcoming month! If you want, you can join me and the rest of the book-community in these events, and read along with me/us. Or you can simply have a look at my reading plans and see which books I plan on reviewing for the blog for the next few weeks. TBR plans for May If you aren’t familiar with it, TBR stands…

    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…

    Book review: Professor Taranne

    Book review of Professor Taranne This is a book review of “Professor Taranne” by Arthur Adamov. It is really a script from 1953 and I read it as part of my ‘A play a week reading challenge‘. It’s a challenge where I aim to read one play each week for a year, ending up with 52 plays on the list. Professor Taranne Professor Taranne basically spends the whole play trying to establish his identity and does not succeed. It was like it was meant to be confusing for the sake of confusion. I get that the structure is the same as when you dream, which adds to the absurdity, but…
