1) Lese minst 100 bøker: Suksess! Eller, det ser ikke sånn ut på har lest-lista mi her, men det er fordi jeg ikke skriver om pensumbøker, som jeg leste noen av om våren. Goodreads kan derimot bekrefte at målet er nådd.
2) Fortsette og/eller fullføre YA-serier jeg har begynt på etterhvert som nye bøker blir gitt ut. Også godkjent. Jeg har lest Light av Michael Grant, Reached av Ally Condie og Ashen Winter av Mike Mullin. Jeg kunne fint ha lest flere, men tre holder til godkjent.
3) Lese minst en sør-amerikansk forfatter: Ikke godkjent.
4) Lese minst en afrikansk forfatter: Ikke godkjent.
5) Minst 20 av bøkene jeg leser skal være «off the shelf», altså bøker jeg kjøpte/fikk/lånte før 2013: Ikke godkjent. Eller, vi sier nesten godkjent, for jeg klarte 15. Skylder på Bokbloggerprisen! :)
6) Lese mer fantasy (YA teller ikke): Denne klarte jeg med glans på tampen av året, ved å lese de tre første Peter Grant-bøkene av Ben Aaronovitch, Dreams and Shadows av C. Robert Cargill og The Ocean at the End of the Lane av Neil Gaiman.
7) Fortsette på Asia-prosjektet! Vel, jo. Jeg har bestått. Pupper og egg av Mieko Kawakami, This is Paradise! My North Korean Childhood av Hyok Kang og The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia av Shigeru Miyamoto. Men med glans kan man vel neppe kalle det.
8) Fortsette å lese og blogge, men begge deler skal være lystbetont. Kan ikke egentlig sette bestått/ikke bestått på denne, for det er et kontinuerlig prosjekt. Jeg har dog vært flink til å holde et øye med pliktfølelsen.

Bokbloggerprisen trampet altså over flere av de andre målene mine. Ikke at det gjør noe. Men det bør jo fungere som inspirasjon til neste år. Bedre planlegging er nøkkelen her, tror jeg.

Hunger (Sult) by Knut Hamsun is one of my favourite books. Obviously had to read this new graphic novel adaptation by Martin Ernstsen. I'd happily recommend it, I find the text and illustrations perfectly compliment each other. Ernstsen captured the protagonist's inner turmoil very well! #knuthamsun #sult #hunger #martinernstsen #book #classic #klassiker #bok #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #graphicnovel #tegneserie #bookporn
One of my favourite hobbies, aside from reading, is embroidery. So obviously, when I came across "Threads of Life" by Clare Hunter, which claims to offer "A history of the world through the eye of a needle", I had to get it. #threadsoflife #clarehunter #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #bokorm #bookworm #nonfiction #history #historybook #embroidery #crafts
If you haven't checked out Postal yet, I thoroughly recommend it! It was the cover of the first volume that first caught my eye at my local comic book store, and once I'd devoured that one, I had to go get the remaining volumes. It consists of 7 volumes (27 issues) in total. The series is about a town where almost everyone is a criminal, either hiding out or looking to start fresh. The main character is the postman, who also happens to be the mayor's son. He has asperger's, and even though there are certain things he should just leave alone, he can't. Well worth a read! #postal #matthawkins #bryanhill #isaacgoodhart #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #comicbook #bookworm #bookporn
Looking forward to reading this one! Lovecraft had some shitty opinions, but I love the universe he created, where the mere idea of the horrifying old gods turn people mad left, right and centre. "Carter & Lovecraft" by Jonathan L. Howard apparently features a disgraced detective and a bookseller who also happens to be Lovecraft's last known descendant. When people start dying in weird ways, it might turn out that Lovecraft's stories were more than fiction... 🐙 #carterandlovecraft #jonathanlhoward #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #lesehest #cthulhu #lovecraft #hplovecraft #horror #tentacles #newbook #bookhaul #aloevera
I'll be honest, I bought this one mostly because of the cover... 🥰 Thankfully the plot seems very interesting too! Something has infected the world, and a bunch of girls have been left to fend for themselves. One of the blurbs say the following: "A feminist, LGBT+, sci-fi horror story with all the tantalizing elements of gore, mystery, war, and love you can ask for. Real, flawed, brave girls against a world gone mad. A shudderingly good read!" #wildergirls #rorypower #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #nybok #newbook #bookhaul
I've meant to read this book for so long. Have you read The Vegetarian, or another one of Han Kang's books? #thevegetarian #hankang #bok #book #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #lesetips #boktips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #manbookerinternationalprize #bookstagrammers
The story OF this book might actually be more interesting than the story IN it. The Norwegian novel "The Song of the Red Ruby" from 1956 presents the story of the young man Ask Burlefot and his journey through shame and disappointment towards "a deeper understanding of himself." But the novel's sexually explicit descriptions actually landed both the author, Agnar Mykle, and his publisher, Gyldendal, in court. The case is known as the Mykle case. The book initially received pretty favourable reviews, but some thought the contents were pornographic, filthy and obscene. This eventually led to the book being confiscated on a court order, and the author and Gyldendal's managing director was on trial for writing and spreading obscene material (which was illegal at the time). They were both eventually acquitted, but all of the books were removed from the market. The decision to withdraw the books was overturned by the supreme court the next year. Although they won the case, the court case and the intense media attention weighed heavily on Agnar Mykle, turning him into a recluse who almost exclusively spent time with only the closest friends and family. His writing took a serious hit as well. The Song of the Red Ruby is actually the second book in a trilogy, the first one ("Lasso Around the Moon") was published in 1954. It would take 9 years before he finished the trilogy with "Rubicon" in 1965. No pictures were published of him after 1957. It's hard to imagine today, for a Scandinavian at least, that something like this could happen, but it did. And it's not even that long ago!
Into the Wild tells the true story of Chris McCandless, a young man from a privileged family who one day decided to get rid of everything he owned and set off alone into the Alaskan wilds. Four months later he was found starved to death. You may have seen the movie with the same title. I did, years ago, and the story seems to have stuck with me. So I finally decided to pick up the book. #intothewild #chrismccandless #christophermccandless #jonkrakauer #alaska #book #bok #bøker #litteratur #literature #nonfiction #sakprosa #newbook #bookhaul #bookstagrammers #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #lesetips #bokelsker #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #instabook #bookish
Inn i naturen: 101 norske dikt is a collection of Norwegian poems relating to nature, and it is divided into seasons. I like that there are both old and familiar classics and new poems I've never read before. Also say hello to my snake plant. #inninaturen #samlaget #dikt #poetry #poems #snakeplant #svigemorstunge #julieholdalhansen #eirikvassenden #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #bok #book #bøker #bookstagrammers #bookhaul #newbook
You know what I like? Cephalopods. They are so wonderfully alien and intelligent (have you seen the Australian one who actually climbs on land to cross between bodies of water?). I like the giant squid in the lake outside of Hogwarts. I like the kraken. I like cthulhu and the other lovecraftian old gods. Here are three books about cephalopods that I'm looking forward to reading: Squid Empire by Danna Staaf, The Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery and Other Minds by Peter Godfrey-Smith. 🐙🦑 #squidempire #dannastaaf #thesoulofanoctopus #symontgomery #otherminds #petergodfreysmith #cephalopod #tentacle #octopus #squid #aloevera #plantporn #seamonster #cthulhu #kraken #giantsquid #bok #book #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #booksofinstagram #bookworm #bookporn
