    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: 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. Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami “Kafka Tamura runs away from home at fifteen, under the shadow of his father’s dark prophecy. The ageing Nakata, tracker of lost cats, who never recovered from a bizarre childhood affliction, finds his pleasantly simplified life suddenly turned upside…

    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…
