    Book review: The Cradle of all Worlds

    Book review of the Cradle of all Worlds The Cradle of all Worlds by Jeremy Lachlan is a middlegrade/teen fantasy book. It’s the first in the Jane Doe Chronicles about the girl Jane Doe. I honestly picked up this book because I liked the cover (again) and the title seemed enticing. I mean, show me a fantasy-reader who doesn’t appreciate a good portal-story, right? Furthermore, the description on the back sealed the deal for me. I just had to have it. The Cradle of all Worlds “We enter the Manor at will, We enter the Manor unarmed We enter the Manor alone. Fourteen years ago, Jane Doe and her father…

    Book review: Tin by Pádraig Kenny

    Book review of Tin by Pádraig Kenny Tin by Pádraig Kenny is a middlegrade sci-fi book, about a boy and his robot friends. The book is published by Chicken House. I instantly fell for the artwork on the cover, and the description on the back. Tin by Pádraig Kenny “Orphan Christopher works for Mr Absalom, an engineer of mechanical children. He’s happy being the only “real” boy among his scrap-metal buddies made from bits and bobs – until an accident reveals an awful truth. What follows is a remarkable adventure as the friends set out to discover who and what they are, and even what it means to be human.”…

    Book review: Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

    Book review of Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf is considered a classic by many. It’s also one of the books on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge list. Finishing that is one of my long term reading goals. Mrs Dalloway and her flowers All it says on the back of my edition of the book is “Still, life had a way of adding day to day.” Which is actually super fitting for the book. I remember watching the movie based on the book, “The Hours” with Meryl Streep. It begins by Mrs Dalloway saying “I’ll do the flowers myself”. Just as the book. But from there,…

    Book review: Aorta af Katarina Lewkovitch

    Aorta af Katarina Lewkovitch Aorta af Katarina Lewkovitch er en digtsamling fra forlaget Anarki, og Lewkovitchs tredje udgivelse. Det er en ganske lille digtsamling, med sammenhængskraft fra hjertet og mere specifikt hovedpulsåren (aorta). Jeg har modtaget et anmeldereksemplar af forlaget Anarki. Aorta – digtsamling Denne lille digtsamling er for det første smukt og gennemført lavet som bog. Det er en lille paperback i mørk grå, med sort tekst og en pulserende rød hovedpulsåre på forsiden. De første sider er mørkerøde og så mere dybrøde. Nøjagtig ligesom blod i forskellige nuancer. Det er altså ret gennemtænkt. Derudover er der faktisk ikke ret meget af det klassiske fyld i bogen. Vi hopper…
