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
I am participating in SFF180's Space Opera September, and I chose Becky Chambers' To Be Taught if Fortunate as my first book. The quest I am on is to read at least 4 books. The challenges are: 1: read a space opera novella (which is what I'm reading now) 2A: read two space operas by women 2B: read a space opera by a diverse author and/or with a diverse main character 3: read a space opera from before you were born 4: read a space opera with 500 pages or more. There are unlocks for each challenge, and the path you follow is decided by whether you pick 2A or 2B. Look up SFF180's YouTube channel for more information, and search for "SSF180 presenters Space Opera September 2019" on goodreads to find the group. Among other things, you will find a huge list of women and non-binary space opera authors there. #spaceoperaseptember2019 #sff180 #readathon #readingchallenge #soseptember2019 #sos2019 #tobetaughtiffortunate #beckychambers #scifi #sciencefiction #spaceopera #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #currentlyreading
(I'll do this one in Norwegian). Leste nylig Linnéa Myhres nyeste bok, Meg meg meg. Likte den! Synes @linniiie får til den skildringen av... Hva skal jeg si... unnvikende retningsløshet og angst veldig bra. Protagonisten er med den eldre kjæresten sin til LA mens han jobber, uten å egentlig ha noe spesielt å ta seg til. Så hun klamrer seg fast til det samme ankeret hun klamret seg fast i da hun var yngre, nemlig Britney Spears. Anbefales videre! #megmegmeg #linnéamyhre #linneamyhre #book #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #ebok #ebook #bookporn #bookshelf #kindle #ereader #bookstagrammers #reading #bookreview #britneyspears
The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker is one of those books that has kept popping up everywhere for years. Last time that happened was when I watched the movie Unsane. And now I've finally read it (it's been in my library for years). I thought it was quite interesting, there are a lot of harrowing statistics and anecdotes. I'm still not sure if I'm able to separate genuine fear, which according to de Becker is a good thing, from general worry and anxiety, which is not very helpful. But still! I'd recommend this one, as have many, many people before me. #thegiftoffear #gavindebecker #ebook #book #books #classic #nonfiction #sakprosa #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #lesetips #bokorm #bookworm #lesehest #welovebooks
I recently read "Bad Blood" by John Carreyrou. The story of Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes is so weird - and it's shocking that something like this could and did happen. If you're not familiar with this case, I'd recommend the HBO documentary "The inventor", as well as this book. Holmes will be on trial in 2020. #badblood #theranos #elizabethholmes #johncarreyrou #books #bøker #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #ebook #bookporn #bookshelf #newbook #bookhaul #documentsary #nonfiction #sakprosa
Very happy to have gotten my hands on 'Plantelykke' by Anders Røyneberg, aka @arcticgardener. 🌱 It's a beautiful book, full of helpful advice for beginners and experienced plant lovers alike. It was a gift from @kavehrashidi and @ainahaugr, and it's signed (with an awkward inside joke). Thank you! ❤ The plants featured in this picture, not including the ones on the actual cover: Begonia Maculata, Fittonia Verschaffeltii, String of Hearts, String of Pearls, Peperomia Prostrata, Begonia Rex, Alocasia Polly, Kalanchoe Thyrsiflora, Monstera Adansonii #plantelykke #andersrøyneberg #arcticgardener #sakprosa #nonfiction #coffeetable #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #bookish #bookstagram #bookporn #plantporn
[Leseeksemplar fra forlaget // ARC from the publisher] When I finished reading the first half of of the story about Vei earlier this year, I was sad to discover that the last half wasn't out yet. So imagine my excitement when the publisher sent it to me without me knowing not too long ago. I'm not sure if this story exists in English yet, but it should. Vei by the Swedish authors Sara B. Elfgren and Karl Johnsson consists of 11 chapters split into two books. The story follows the young woman Vei in a world based on norse mythology, where her destiny is not for her to decide. I must say I liked the first half better than the second one, but I happily recommend it! Beautiful artwork, I remember a couple of pages with a lot of red and tangled hair in particular. 🥰 #vei #sarabelfgren #karljohnsson #graphicnovel #comicbook #newbook #bookhaul #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #teaporn #bookporn #egmont
