Book reviews

Hi and welcome to the bookshelf!

I love reading and now that I’m sharing my bookish thoughts with you and sharing at least one new book review each week, a complete list of book reviews might be in order!

Here you’ll find all my accessible book reviews, sorted by author name! It’s an ever growing list, so make sure to come back once in a while to catch up 🙂

Please be aware that these book reviews are a mix of Danish and English reviews, as I read in both languages and some books are only available in either Danish or English 🙂

All the titles will be marked if they are review copies and numbered if they’re part of a series. Danish reviews will be marked with a (DK) and if a book is featured in my Reading The World challenge, it will be marked with a (RW). I’m also working on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge and you can follow my progress here. If you want to look for my A play a week reads, these can be recognized by (52 Plays).

If you’re exclusively looking for my reviews on performing arts books, don’t worry. I’ve created this list just for you.
