    Book review: To be taught if fortunate

    Book review of To be taught if fortunate To be taught if fortunate is a short sci-fi novel by Becky Chambers. I found it via looking through my friends reads on Goodreads, and it looked enticing. Technically, it is categorized as a space opera. Whatever that means. (A quick online search tells me; “a novel, film, or television programme set in outer space, typically of a simplistic and melodramatic nature” – which doesn’t really say anything) To be taught if fortunate by Becky Chambers “In the future, instead of terraforming planets to sustain human life, explorers of the galaxy transform themselves. At the turn of the twenty-second century, scientists make…

    Book review: Kafka on the shore

    Book review of Kafka on the Shore This is my book review of Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. I have read “Hardboiled wonderland and the end of the world” before, as my first Murakami book. I loved that one, so I wanted to read more by the same author. So I picked up Kafka on the Shore, for my next Murakami read.

    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…

I read the Anne of Green Gables books growing up and I loved them. So naturally, I wanted more and…

    Book review: Maybe a Fox

    Book review of Maybe a Fox The book Maybe a Fox has been on my shelf for a few years. Written by Kathi Appelt and Alison McGhee, it’s a book about coping with loss, seen from a childs perspective. The cover of the book drew me in and after reading the blurp on the back, I had to have it. I bought the book in a beautiful but small bookshop in Stamford, England. Maybe a Fox “Jules adores her older-by-one-year sister, Sylvie. Sylvie: beautiful like their mother, supreme maker of tiny snow families, faster than fast. Sylvie: gone. Into thin air, Sylvie goes missing, and as Jules stumbles in grief,…
