Top Ten Tuesday

Ah yes, finally a theme from The Broke and the Bookish that appeals to me! This week’s topic: Ten Books I’ve Added To My To-Be-Read List Lately.

I could easily list well more than 10, because I’ve been completely out of control with the buying of the books lately + I’ve been gifted a few as well.

I will limit it to this pile though, coincidentally consisting of ten books. How convenient.

  1. Kris by Karin Boye. For unknown reasons I’ve yet to read this book; Karin Boye is hardly a new acquaintance. But reading Kallocain this time around I was suddenly inspired to read more of her non-poetry work, and stumbled upon this one in a bookshop in Gothenburg, as well as…
  2. Astarte by Karin Boye. Yes. Same as above. Could also mention: I do love Swedish lit from the 30s-40s. The language just reads like poetry. (That’s a generalization I’m sure is true.)
  3. När duvorna försvann by Sofi Oksanen. Also from my Gothenburg book haul. I just kept stumbling on good books. I thought. I’ve actually started reading this book, and I’m not that impressed. Might be the translation. I’ll never know tho, I don’t exactly read Finnish. It feels as if at least part of the problem is the translation. Kinda of disappointed, I loved the other three novels I’ve read by Oksanen.
  4. Expeditionen – Min kärlekshistoria by Bea Uusma. I’ve been meaning to buy this book for ages, a favorite for sure. I am so looking forward to diving into the world of Andrée and his foolish venture again.
  5. Ravencliffe by Carol Goodman. Part two in the Blythewood trilogy.
  6. Estrid by Johanne Hildebrandt. I figured if I go on about this book enough, eventually, eventually someone else will have to read it too, just too see what the hell I’m on about. I expect it to be every bit as good as the previous 4 parts. Basically, it’s about vikings.
  7. Unspeakable Things by Laurie Penny. I just keep going on and on about the same books, clearly I’m not reading at a fast enough pace. I finally get to read this beautiful book in the original language. Yay!
  8. Odinsbarn by Siri Pettersen. Erm. I forget what this book was actually about; I vaguely recall something about maybe magic…? And, clearly, it takes place during the viking age. Kinda obsessed with the vikings. It’s all Johannes fault.
  9. Texts from Jane Eyre by Mallory Ortberg. Might have planned this entry a while back. Might have read this one. Basically, it’s texts from a number of fictional characters, my faves are Achilles, Medea, Katniss, the Sweet Valley twins – oh it’s all good, absolutely hilarious. Takes like two minutes to read, well worth while.
  10. The Girls by Emma Cline. Present, haven’t the faintest what it’s about, so that’ll be exciting!?
