Books of April and Future Books of May

Before starting, I would like to say something first (sorry if it sounds dramatic - it's not):

I am aware there might not be many (or anyone, maybe) reading my blog. Although, I would like to apologize for not have been making any reviews this month... I am sorry. I promise to do better next month. With the books from May and the missing ones from April. Now that's said!

 

 

It's keeping on going well! I found a new book to my favorite shelf (North and South), which took me more than 10 days and still I managed to read quite a bit.

Oh! BTW - It's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (I just liked the Danish cover better)

 

The month of May will be focusing on Classics. One from before the 20th century and one from the 20th century

 

And my classic before the 20th century will be:

 

Yes, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There (long title) the sequel to Alice in Wonderland

 

I actually already read my classic from the 20th century which was:

 

 

I love Anne of Green Gables and it was nice to read it again, but more about that in my review.

 

So that was the book from April and the books for May.

Books of March and Future Books of April

 

In my opinion it have been a great month. I have read a great deal of good books and once again I am satisfied with the amount of books I've read... Although two of them were plays - but Jeppe on the Hill was written in such old Danish that it reminded more of German, so that was a great challenge. 

 

But it is a new month, with new categories! 

Today is April Fool's Day and though I do not enjoy the pranks and such myself, it seems only naturally that this month's category should be humor and what is the opposite of humor? Tragedy! Just like an old fashioned greek play!

 

The choice for the humorous book is:

 

 

 

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen by Paul Torday is one of the best book I've ever read. I laughed out loud several times! I have for a long time wanted to reread it and now I think it is time again!

 

The tragic book will be:

 

 

Everyone seems to love The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I have not really wanted to read him myself, but now I am giving him a chance. Who knows? Maybe I will need to buy a lot of John Green-books when I'm done. I have of course heard a lot about it and my conclusion is that this would be a good choice for a bit of tragedy.

 

And for my book club's choice of the month it is Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. I have once read her book Slammed, but I was not so positive. It is time to give her a second chance!

 

 

These was my books of March and my TBR of April. Looking once again forward to new books!

Books of February and Future Books of March

 

Was not as great a reading month as January, but I am still pretty satisfied, because this month have been a busy one, friends and job etc., and I used many evenings on watching movies instead of reading and still I managed to read four books and be halfway through The Devil Wears Prada - which I don't know if I will finish.

 

This month I chose The Devil Wears Prada and Wuthering Heights and I haven't finished any of them (I didn't even start on Wuthering Heights), but I my challenge was reading a romance and a chick-lit... All four was full of romance, as you might have guessed, and the last three... Well 'mommy-porn' isn't that pretty much the same as chick-lit. I would say.

 

So... I might not finished the book I chose, but I would still say that I accomplished this months challenge. 

 

But I am not going to stop choosing books for March. So the next categories for this month will be... Paranormal YA and Classic Fantasy! And when I say classic I don't actually mean classic, but more like a fantasy with the once upon a time-feeling!

And I already knew from the beginning of this year, what that book should be:

 

 

House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones is the third and last book in the Howl's Moving Castle-series and that series is one of my absolute favorite and I can't wait to read the last book!

 

And for my other category I have chosen:

 

 

Days of Blood and Starlight written by Laini Taylor is the second book of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone-trilogy. I really liked the first, which surprised me and I am looking forward to this one. 

 

Last month I also had to read a book together with my book club, that is not going to happen this month (I've already read the one we are reading).

 

So here was my choose for books of March. I can't wait!

Books of January and Future Books of February

 

 

Must say it is a very optimistic month.

I normally read 3-4 books a month and here I am - nine books!

I am proud of myself! Was surprised that I had finished my challenge of January so fast (10 days) and boy, I enjoyed those books! For now it seems like a good idea with that challenge I made! For now I have only one book I didn't thought positively of which was Peter and Wendy, funny enough! I would had thought I would love it.

 

And I am excited to a new month and new categories in my challenge!

February is the month of Valentine and looooove and my categories are inspired by this occasion we do not celebrate in Denmark.

This month's categories will be Romance and Chick-Lit!

 

And the books are... *drum whirl*

 

 

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë will be my romance and The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger will be my chick-lit.

Other than that, I just joined a book club and for February we have to read A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray, and as much as I've read there is romance in it, so I guess it works!

 

 

 

This is the books I read in January and the books I will be reading in February. For now, it is a pretty good year!
