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
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
