    Bog anmeldelse: Grå magi af Lene Krog

    Bog anmeldelse af Grå Magi Grå Magi af Lene Krog er første bind i fantasy serien Pigen fra Månehøjen. Jeg har modtaget bogen som et anmeldereksemplar af forlaget Ulven og Uglen. Grå magi – Pigen fra Månehøjen 1 “Et svagt minde fortalte Aia, at det ikke var første gang hun havde oplevet livet svinde. Pludseligt dukkede det op ud af tågen. En blodrød genspejling af himlen og en fortabt erkendelse af, at det var sådan, det endte. Ligesom nu. På Vidar Baltzers ordrer har de Grå taget kontrol over Bragimark og ransager landet for magiske evner. Hekse og marlinger forsvinder på stribe, men i skyggerne hviskes der om oprør. Aia…

    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.

    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…

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…
