Topp ti på tirsdag #2: Favorittsitater

Topp ti på tirsdag er et konsept jeg har lånt fra den engelskspråklige bokbloggen The Broke and the Bookish. Dette er en spalte de har hatt gående lenge, og jeg ser at de allerede har tatt opp noen temaer jeg kunne tenke meg å skrive om – så jeg plukker fritt fra lista. Dette betyr at det antageligvis er et annet tema du finner på originalbloggen – og vi skal ikke se bort ifra at jeg finner på mine egne temaer også.


Denne gangen har jeg plukket ut ti sitater jeg har merket meg i bøkene jeg har lest. Det finnes maaaange flere sitater som jeg merker meg mens jeg har lest bøker, men merkelig nok er det vanskelig å huske hele ti stykker.😉

1. All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others
– Animal Farm av George Orwell

2. Rellonen snuste på kona si for å se om han dro kjensel på lukten hennes. Jo da. Hun luktet gammel, oppgitt kjerring. En sånn lukt går ikke av i vask.
– Kollektivt Selvmord av Arto Paasilinna

3. Of course this is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?
– Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows av JK Rowling

4.  As he looked at the woman in her characteristic attitude, her thick arms reaching up for the line, her powerful mare-like buttocks protruded, it struck him for the first time that she was beautiful. It had never before occured to him that the body of a woman of fifty, blown up to monstrous dimensions by childbearing, then hardened, roughened by work till it was course in the grain like an over-ripe turnip, could be beautiful. But it was so, and after all, he thought, why not?
– 1984 av George Orwell

5. He starts to tire, and tells himself that he doesn’t care where she is. She’s like mildew that has invaded his life. She’s the kind of mold that wouldn’t have appeared if he lived austerely, the kind that breeds only in the dark, neglected corners of a building. She has infected his life, not caring what he wants. He hates himself for trudging through the snow looking for a woman who was having sex with his brother on the day their mother was buried. Seriously, I don’t want to know where she is or whether she’s dead or alive. Still, even as he thinks this, he advances, putting one foot in front of the other.
– I Have the Right to Destroy Myself av Young-Ha Kim

6. The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t.
– The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy av Douglas Adams

7. ‘Love’, this English word: like other English words it has tense. ‘Loved’ or ‘will love’ or ‘have loved’. All these specific tenses mean Love is time-limited thing. Not infinite. It only exists in particular period of time. In Chinese, Love is ‘爱’ (ai). It has no tense. No past and future. Love in Chinese means a being, a situation, a circumstance. Love is existence, holding past and future. If our love existed in Chinese tense, then it will last for ever. It will be infinite.
– A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers – Xiaolu Guo

8. In the beginning, the universe was created. This made a lot of people very angry, and has been widely regarded as a bad idea.
– The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy av Douglas Adams

9. I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
– The Fellowship of the Ring av JRR Tolkien

10. It takes much bravery to stand up to our enemies but we need as much bravery to stand up to our friends.
– Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone av JK Rowling

    Jeg er alltid imponert over de som husker sitater fra bøker, jeg hadde ikke klart å komme opp med ti stykker til denne listen. Har satt opp en egen tirsdagsliste som jeg fant blant The Broke and the Bookish sine tidligere lister.

      Jeg husker absolutt ikke sitatene ordrett i hodet, men jeg har en tendens til å skrive ned, markere og/eller lagre sitatene jeg liker på bokelskere.no – så da kan jeg finne dem igjen der. :p

    Kjempe flink du er til å huske sitater. er ikke noe god på det,men husker når jeg leste «spis,elsk og lev» så tok jeg meg selv å dra frem en blyant eller lage et esel øre der det var et bra sitat

    Mange bra sitater. Tror jeg blir nødt til å markere eller skrive ned gode sitater i fremtida😉

    Det er tydelig at jeg må benytte meg av bokelskere i større grad. Takk for tipset😉

The League of Regrettable Superheroes by Jon Morris is a fun look at superheroes who never made it into the big leagues. Some of them missed their chance simply because they just vanished in the crowd, but others were downright weird. Ever heard of Doll Man? Jigsaw? Fatman the Human Flying Saucer..? #bøker #books #bok #reading #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #litteratur #literature #bookporn #superhero #jonmorris #theleagueofregrettablesuperheroes #lootcrate #comics #comicbooks #tegneserie In celebration of being completely done with this year's Christmas shopping: here is an unrelated shelfie. I'm not actually giving away any books this year. I know. It's sad.

I've seen this book around for a while, and finally decided to pick it up - even though it seems to be slightly outside what I usually read. The Wrath & The Dawn by Renée Ahdieh. Have you read it? What did you think?

#newbook #thewrathandthedawn #reneeahdieh #books #bok #bøker #book #literature #litteratur #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #bookporn New book! Every Anxious Wave by Mo Daviau. It's being described as "High fidelity with time travel". I was intrigued.

Here's the publisher's description: Good guy Karl Bender is a thirty-something bar owner whose life lacks love and meaning. When he stumbles upon a time-travelling worm hole in his closet, Karl and his best friend Wayne develop a side business selling access to people who want to travel back in time to listen to their favorite bands. It's a pretty ingenious plan, until Karl, intending to send Wayne to 1980, transports him back to 980 instead. Though Wayne sends texts extolling the quality of life in tenth century "Mannahatta," Karl is distraught that he can't bring his friend back.

Enter brilliant, prickly, overweight astrophysicist, Lena Geduldig. Karl and Lena's connection is immediate. While they work on getting Wayne back, Karl and Lena fall in love -- with time travel, and each other. Unable to resist meddling with the past, Karl and Lena bounce around time. When Lena ultimately prevents her own long-ago rape, she alters the course of her life and threatens her future with Karl.

Rallskanken er den nye barneboka til Aleksander L. Nordaas, med nydelige illustrasjoner av Sandra Steffensen. Den følger samme struktur som Nordaas' forrige barnebok, Mister Mjukis, med rim og store illustrasjoner. Fin og stemningsfull!

Here's what I wrote on goodreads after having listened to the audio version: "Wow. I laughed. I cried. I laughed while I cried. What a quirky, beautiful, funny, heartbreaking and overall incredibly touching book." #books #bok #bøker #book #literature #litteratur #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #theuniverseversusalexwoods #gavinextence #fiction #skjønnlitteratur #youngadult #bookcoverlove #coverlove Hi guys. I've not posted for a couple of weeks, and the main reason for that is that I'm doing #NaNoWriMo this year. If you don't know what that is: November is the month when thousands of people set out to write a novel (each...). 50000 words in 30 days. 1667 words a day.

I have hit the halfway mark (25000 words) a couple of days early, and have only failed to hit the daily minimum once. I'm vaguely optimistic that I might in fact get through this madness. 👍I can assure you that I have made a few of the mistakes listed in the book in the picture though!

#books #bok #bøker #book #literature #litteratur #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #nonfiction #sakprosa #writing #skrive #write I found this paperback from 1952 at a local flea market, and I bought it because of the adorable cover... Tarjei Vesaas is of course also one of Norway's greatest authors, probably the most famous for his novel Is-slottet (The Ice Palace). The Black Horses, as seen in the photo, was first published in 1928.

Thank you!

It's a somewhat weird novella about a guy talking about a particular author and the books she has written. I'm not entirely sure what to say about it. Certainly a strange read... #bythesameauthor #jackrobinson #shakespeareandco #book #bøker #books #bok #reading #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #litteratur #literature #bookporn #signedbook #novella #shortstory #novelle New book!
