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: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

After reading the first few pages of this dream of a book, I felt like screaming aloud "this is what good writing is!". Of course, I didn´t. Cause you know, might not be appropriate to wake my family at 1 am by screaming. But I wanted to, okay. And I think the fact that I… Continue reading Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

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: Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

“One of these days, I would love to exit a world without being pursued by an angry mob.” I think the trick to this book, and the first book in the series, The Sword of Summer is to just sit back, remove yourself from the logical part of your brain and enjoy the completely ridiculous joyride that it… Continue reading Review: Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

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

Review: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

This was one of my more anticipated releases this year, but sadly, I can´t say it met my expectations. Now, I am aware that my expectations and hope was to glide back into the excitement I had when reading Divergent, which isn´t exactly low, but I still feel this didn´t really make it up to… Continue reading Review: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Review: Freeks by Amanda Hocking

"In a world of magical visions and pyrokinesis, Mara just wants to have a normal life. But is that possible?" Well, I´d have to give that a firm no. This was my first read from Amanda Hocking but I did see a fair amount of people shelving it on Goodreads as soon as the full… Continue reading Review: Freeks by Amanda Hocking
