Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

"Forget them. Burn them all, burn everything. Fire is bright and fire is clean." I´m torn on this one... At the same time as I think I really enjoyed it and all the interesting ideas about society it has, I think it mostly just confused me and left me sort of high and dry. To… Continue reading Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Review: Oil and Marble by Stephanie Storey

“Think … the greater danger for most of us is not in aiming too high and falling short, but in aiming too low and hitting the mark.” As a fanatic of both books and art, I couldn´t really imagine a book more fitting than this one. Oil and Marble is a novel about two of… Continue reading Review: Oil and Marble by Stephanie Storey

Review: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

"To many, I was myth incarnate, the embodiment of a most superb legend, a fairy tale. Some considered me a monster, a mutation. To my great misfortune, I was once mistaken for an angel." This is one of those books that I think most people either hate or love. For me, I can´t decide which… Continue reading Review: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

"For a moment, I let myself see past the glamour that concealed the tattoo on my right hand and forearm. The markings of my true heart. My true title. High Lady of the Night Court." It´s stunning. I don´t know what more to say. I´ve been putting off writing this review for a week now… Continue reading Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Miss Julie by August Strindberg

(this review will contain spoilers for the entire play) As a woman, as a feminist and as a believer in equality it truly pains me to have to admit I find some of the themes from this play still in existence today. The play was originally written over a hundred years ago by a man… Continue reading Review: Miss Julie by August Strindberg

Review: A Dream Play by August Strindberg

(I read the Swedish version of the drama, the other cover is the English version with Caryl Churchills interpretation) I haven´t read anything by August Strindberg before, but growing up in Sweden it´s completely impossible not being raised into knowing and believing he is one of the greatest authors coming from this long, northern country… Continue reading Review: A Dream Play by August Strindberg

Review: Maus I & II by Art Spiegelman

Some years ago, something terrible happened. Well, to be honest, I´m not sure if terrible or horrible or any adjective of the like is enough to properly describe what happened. The second world war has always been one of the points in history I´ve been most interested in, I´ve read a fair amount of history… Continue reading Review: Maus I & II by Art Spiegelman
