Intrepid :: Book Review


I must first thank the author J.D. Brewer for sending me this. I am so grateful for the opportunity to read and review it. This was in fact my first ebook, and although at first it was strange and annoying to have to turn on my laptop to read, soon I found myself edging to open my mac; I was…

The Goldfinch


Last June, when I went to Paris, my friends and I got purposely lost and ended up inside the most magical bookshop on earth; Shakespeare’s Bookstore & Co. I can’t tell you how amazing it was, the ladders, the chairs, the books! My eyes were mesmerised any my hands trembled over the most beautiful spines. Quite a while later, I…

My Christmas Wish List


1. Ukulele – It’s just such a cool instrument. It sounds fantastic and is really easy to carry around. I love to learn new instruments so this is next on my list.   2.

The 5th Wave


For a year, I’ve been having this internal debate on whether to read the 5th Wave or not. There’s just been so many different opinions from raves to rants. About a month ago I gave in to my unofficial “rule” about me being the judge of my opinions about books and not letting others affect my own personal opinion. So,…

Will Grayson, Will Grayson


This was one of the many books I brought with me to Spain this Summer. I sat outside at the pool one morning and opened the first page. That evening I closed the last. No doubt, it is a very easy read (–>there’s no Swedish politics or hundreds of names you need to remember). I was very excited to finally…

Millennium Trilogy


After four months, I have finally finished it. The Millennium trilogy consists of three very large books and each require a lot of attention and time. Therefore *cough cough* I do not recommend reading them when you’re doing exams … speaking from experience. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families disappeared…

The to-be-read List


I have this affliction whereby I keep buying too many books. I just can’t help it. When I walk into a bookstore and see all these wonderful book spines piled on shelves I immediately feel the urge to buy more. This terrible beauty has left my piggy bank a little on the empty side. So now I have this humongus…
