Nytt år, nye muligheter! På denne siden finner du lesemålene jeg har satt for meg selv i 2012. Jeg kommer til å oppdatere med linker etterhvert som målene forhåpentligvis blir noe av. KLIKK HER om du har lyst til å kikke på målene jeg hadde i 2011.

1) Fortsette på Asia-prosjektet!

2) Lese Brave New World av Aldous Huxley – fordi det er en av de bøkene jeg virkelig burde lese snart. FERDIG! Omtale her.

3) Lese Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? av Philip K. Dick – av samme grunn som over.

4) Lese bok 2 (A Clash of Kings) – og gjerne flere – i A Song of Ice and Fire-serien til George R.R. Martin – fordi jeg har lest bok en og vil fortsette.

5) Lese minst en bok av Charles Dickens – fordi det er 200 år siden Dickens ble født den 7. februar 2012.

6) Lese minst en sør-amerikansk forfatter – fordi jeg ikke kan huske å ha lest mange herifra.

7) Lese minst en afrikansk forfatter – av samme grunn som over.

8) Lese minst 100 bøker – fordi det virker overkommelig utifra mengden jeg klarte i 2011.

9) Minst 30 av bøkene jeg skal lese, skal være “off the shelf”, det vil si at jeg eier dem nå. Målet om å lese bøker jeg allerede eier gikk ikke særlig bra i 2011, men jeg ser optimistisk på fremtiden. ;)
Resultat: 16/30

10) Fortsette å lese og blogge, men begge deler skal være lystbetont. Av og til kommer pliktfølelsen snikende når det gjelder bloggen, og jeg skal prøve å unngå det.

'Beasts of Burden: Animal Rites' by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson is hands down one of the best comics I've read in a long time. I may even have shed a tear or four. Several times. Looking forward to reading more! How are the citizens of Burden Hill safe from the supernatural, you ask? Why, it's the pets, of course! #beastsofburden #animalrites #evandorkin #jillthompson #comic #graphicnovel #tegneserie #literature #litteratur #bookstagrammers #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #instabook #instabooks

I recently gave away about 200 books, but you can't really tell from looking at these shelves... 🤷‍♀️ #bookshelf #shelves #bokhylle #bookshelfie #shelfie #books #bøker #bookporn #shelfporn #bookshelfporn #instabook #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookworm #booknerd #ilovebooks #literature #litteratur #bookish
I don't usually re-read books, even the ones I liked a lot. But there is one exception, and that is the Harry Potter series. Whether I read my increasingly worn copies, or listen to the wonderfully narrated audiobooks (or a combination of both), it just takes me right home. Reading Harry Potter feels like meeting my old friends again, in our old spot. No other books have ever given me that same feeling, at least not to that extent. And I know exactly when the heartbreak is coming, and I cry every time anyways. Also, welcome to the jungle. This table used to be empty. Now it's just overrun by nature. Among the plants visible in this picture, you can see a Monstera Variegata cutting, Calathea Lancifolia, Alocasia Cucullata and Monstera Adansonii. #harrypotter #harrypotterandthedeathlyhallows #jkrowling #book #books #literature #litteratur #bokorm #bookworm #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #currentlyreading #bookporn #plantporn #monsteravariegata #monsteraadansonii #calathealancifolia #alocasiacucullata
October is obviously a great month for spooky reads. Who doesn't like cuddling up in a blanket with a cuppa and a good book while it rains outside?! All in all, I haven't actually read that many horror stories (don't know why), but I decided to give The Haunting of Ashburn House by Darcy Coates a go. And I liked it well enough, quite an easy read! I like haunted house stories, and discovered that Coates has written quite a lot of them. I liked the atmosphere in this one the most, especially in the beginning. Thought the ending was a bit cheesy, but not enough to stop me from buying a few more Coates books. #thehauntingofashburnhouse #darcycoates #horror #spooktober #haunting #ghoststory #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #lesetips #bokorm #bookworm #ebok #ebook #ereader #book #bøker #kindle #halloween
All Systems Red by Martha Wells is the first book about Murderbot, which immediately became one of my new favourite characters! ❤ Murderbot is a security robot that is supposed to do what the company says. "Problem" is that it hacked itself and is no longer under their control. And it could have committed spectacular mass murder. Except it didn't. It downloaded thousands of hours of soap operas instead, and all it really want is to be left alone so it can watch that. Loved this read, will continue on the series! #allsystemsred #murderbot #themurderbotdiaries #marthawells #spaceoperaseptember2019 #sciencefiction #scifi #ebook #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #booksofinstagram #bookworm #bookporn #bokorm #lesehest #lesetips #bookstagrammers #ereader #kindle #ebok
During #spaceoperaseptember2019 one of the challenges was to read a book published before I was born. So I picked this one, The Ship Who Sang by Anne McCaffrey, first published in the 60s. And while I didn't get overly immersed in the actual storylines, I've found myself thinking about the core ideas she starts out with a lot. Basically parents of children with disabilities get a choice: you either euthanise the child (!), or you hand them over to the state so that they can turn your child into a shell person, that is, to install their brain in a ship (!). Provided they are smart enough. And when the child has grown up, they have to keep working for the state until the cost of training has been paid off (!). To me, that seems like an idea worth going into and exploring, there's so much potential when writing a society like that. But the author mostly just... doesn't. And that was disappointing. Barely remember the story, definitely remember the core premise presented in the beginning. #theshipwhosang #annemccaffrey #ebook #ereader #kindle #book #books #literature #litteratur #bokorm #bookworm #lesehest #bookstagram #bookish #instabook #ilovebooks #spaceopera #scifi #sciencefiction #bookstagrammers #bookporn
This is another book I read for #spaceoperaseptember2019: 'The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet' by Becky Chambers. I tried starting several other books as we were getting closer to the end, but none of them stuck. So I went with this one, I just knew I could trust Becky Chambers after having read 'To Be Taught, if Fortunate' earlier. And this book did not disappoint, I love Chambers' universe. The characters. The atmosphere. Everything. 🥰 I ordered the next two books in the Wayfarer series before I had even finished this one. Highly recommended! #thelongwaytoasmallangryplanet #beckychambers #wayfarerseries #wayfarer #ssf180 #spaceopera #scifi #sciencefiction #bookstagrammers #bookporn #teaporn #book #books #literature #litteratur #bokorm #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #bookworm #boktips #lesetips
I read 'Do You Dream of Terra-Two?' by Temi Oh last month, for #spaceoperaseptember2019. Unfortunately not quite my cup of tea, I struggled to get immersed because I didn't believe the way the space program was run at all. However, this is certainly a book I've wanted to read, because I discovered that I had bought both the paperback and the hardcover edition without noticing... this is why you check your collection on goodreads before you buy new books, people... 🤔 #doyoudreamofterratwo #temioh #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #sciencefiction #scifi #newbook #ssf180 #bookporn #coffeeporn #bookworm #lesehest #spaceopera #bookstagrammers
