En smakebit på søndag: 77 Days in September

En smakebit på søndag er et konsept jeg har lånt av Mari på Flukten fra virkeligheten. Alt du trenger å gjøre er å slå opp i boka du leser nå og velge ut noen setninger du synes passer – uten at de avslører for mye av handlingen – før du legger dem ut på bloggen din og legger igjen ei lenke i innlegget til Mari. På denne måten kan vi klikke oss fra smakebit til smakebit, og kanskje oppdage nye skatter?

Etter en slitsom uke med eksamen og diverse annet, er det deilig å endelig være ferdig. Jeg holder på med den postapokalyptiske 77 Days in September av Ray Gorham, der terrorister har detonert en bombe med en elektromagnetisk puls som har tatt knekken på hele USA. Vaskeseddelen sier følgende:

On a Friday afternoon before Labor Day, Americans are getting ready for the holiday weekend, completely unaware of a long-planned terrorist plot about to be launched against the country. Kyle Tait is settling in for his return flight home when a single nuclear bomb is detonated 300 miles above the heart of America. The blast, an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP), destroys every electrical device in the country, and results in the crippling of the power grid, the shutting down of modern communications, and bringing to a halt most forms of transportation.

Kyle narrowly escapes when his airplane crashes on take-off, only to find himself stranded 2,000 miles from home in a country that has been forced, from a technological standpoint, back to the 19th Century. Confused, hurt, scared, and alone, Kyle must make his way across a hostile continent to a family he’s not even sure has survived the effects of the attack. As Kyle forges his way home, his frightened family faces their own struggles for survival in a community trying to halt its own slow spiral into chaos and anarchy.

Så langt kan jeg vel ikke påstå at den er det helt store, men emp er et spennende tema. Smakebiten kommer fra 50% inne i e-boka:

Kyle leaned back against the wheel of the semi and thought of his family in Montana, without him. As he did dozens of times each day, he wondered how they were doing. He’d give anything for a one-minute phone call. Pulling a handcart gave a person too much time to think.

    Tycker att det låter som en spännande bok! Tack för smakebiten🙂

    Låter precis som en bok för mig, men författaren verkar vara helt okänd i svenska bokhandlar. Det finns inte ens böcker på engelska.

    Hører ut som ett spennende scenario….synd den ikke helt det store. Men godt å høre tema er bra:) Takk for smakebiten!:)
    Ønsker deg en fin fin søndag!:)

    Hm, som fysiker har jag lite svårt för de där böckerna som bygger på något fysikaliskt;-) Det är så lätt att i frågasätta då… Tack för smakbiten!

    Det høres ihvertfall ut som en spennende historie🙂

      Temaet er spennende. Tenk å miste alt av elektroniske duppeditter. Man blir rimelig hjelpeløs, ikke bare på et personlig nivå, men alt av det offentlige som avhenger av elektronikk også.

    Syntes også at det høres ut som en spennende historie!

    Virker som en spennende bok. EMP er jo ting som dukker opp på tvserier som «doomsdays preppers» på nat geo og greier.

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!

Jeg liker Linnéa Myhre, og måtte naturligvis kjøpe den nyeste boka hennes: Hver gang du forlater meg.
