Not for the first time, I was inspired by the Norwegian Snapchat account, @snaplioteket. This time I discovered Junji Ito's Uzumaki. The blurb: Kurouzu-cho, a small fogbound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but a pattern: UZUMAKI, the spiral - the hypnotic secret shape of the world. #uzumaki #spirals #junjiito #newbook #bookhaul #manga #literature #litteratur #skrekk #horror #coffee #cofferporn #bookporn #lesetips #nrklesetips #bokorm #bookworm #lesehest #bookstagram #bookish #instabook
I recently picked up Autonomous by Annalee Newitz. Not started reading it yet, but I was intrigued by the blurb: "Autonomous features a rakish female pharmaceutical pirate named Jack who traverses the world in her own submarine. A notorious anti-patent scientist who has styled herself as a Robin Hood heroine fighting to bring cheap drugs to the poor, Jack’s latest drug is leaving a trail of lethal overdoses across what used to be North America—a drug that compels people to become addicted to their work. On Jack’s trail are an unlikely pair: an emotionally shut-down military agent and his partner, Paladin, a young military robot, who fall in love against all expectations. Autonomous alternates between the activities of Jack and her co-conspirators, and Elias and Paladin, as they all race to stop a bizarre drug epidemic that is tearing apart lives, causing trains to crash, and flooding New York City." #autonomous #annaleenewitz #books #bøker #book #sciencefiction #scifi #newbook #litteratur #literature #bookhaul #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #orange #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #nybok
I recently realised that it's been about 17 years since I read The Lord of the Rings. Maybe this year is the year I will read it again? 🧝‍♀️ #books #book #bøker #litteratur #literature #jrrtolkien #lotr #thelordoftherings #lordoftherings #thefellowshipofthering #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #lesetips #fantasy #lesehest #nrklesetips #bokorm #bookworm
I recently went to Ireland (Dublin to be specific) for a conference. At the airport on my way home I picked up this quirky book. I ended up spending 12 hours travelling that day, due to delays and missing connecting flights (yes, ended up being plural, I missed two of them). For context, a direct flight takes about 2 hours. So that was fun. Didn't get a chance to start The Curious History of Irish Dogs, but I did read another one from start to finish. #thecurioushistoryofirishdogs #davidblakeknox #book #books #bøker #bok #litteratur #literature #bookhaul #newbook #dublin #ireland #irishwolfhound #avocado #tea #breakfast #nonfiction #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #lesehest #lesetips #nrklesetips #bokorm #bookworm
I have looked at and picked up this book in @outlandkirkegata for literal years. But I haven't bought it until now. I have absolutely no idea why. But here it is: A Natural History of Dragons - A Memoir by Lady Trent, by Marie Brennan. Looking forward to reading it. Have you read it? what did you think? #anaturalhistoryofdragons #ladytrent #ladytrentmemoirs #mariebrennan #dragons #dragon #drage #drake #wyrm #fantasy #literature #litteratur #book #books #bøker #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #bookhaul #bookcoverlove
I finished listening to I'll Be Gone In The Dark, by Michelle McNamara, who tragically died suddenly while working on this book. I picked this book for the prompt "a book published posthumously" in the #Popsugarreadingchallenge, so I'm off to a good start! If you're into true crime, you'll most likely enjoy this book. The crime writer Michelle McNamara became somewhat obsessed with hunting down the Golden State Killer - in fact, she was the one who coined that name. Before this, he was known under various other nicknames: The East Area Rapist, East Bay Rapist, The Original Night Stalker, Visalia Ransacker and The Diamond Knot Killer. He killed at least 13 people, raped more than 50 girls and women from 13 to 40 years old, and committed more than 100 burglaries while he was active between 1974 and 1986. This book is really as much about McNamara as it is about the Golden State Killer, because so much of her life revolved around bringing him to justice. And in 2018, not long after this book was released, Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested based on DNA evidence, using the method McNamara describes as the best method to catch him. It saddens me that she wasn't around to see him caught, but, as her husband and friends say, she did not care about getting any credit. She cared about getting justice for all of his victims. Good book, well worth a read or listen! #illbegoneinthedark #michellemcnamara #truecrime #goldenstatekiller #eastarearapist #eastbayrapist #originalnightstalker #visaliaransacker #diamondknotkiller #litteratur #literature #book #audiobook #audible #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #crime #krim #nonfiction #sakprosa #bookstagram #instabook #bookish
Happy New Year, friends! I've been in a bit of a reading slump for, well, the last couple of years really. I'll give a reading challenge a go in 2019, to see if that helps. @popsugar have been making these since 2015, I believe, and I quite like them. Don't know if I'll complete it, but as far as reading prompts go, these seem pretty good! Are you doing any challenges in 2019? #popsugarreadingchallenge #popsugarchallenge #popsugar #readingchallenge #bookchallenge #literature #litteratur #bokorm #lesehest #bookworm #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #reading #read #readingprompts #books #bok #bøker
I recently discovered Fatale through a Norwegian Snapchat account about books (@snaplioteket). I instantly ordered the first 4 issues. This one peaked my interest right from the beginning. A seemingly lovecraftian mystery, tentacles and all? Count me in! Looking forward to reading them. #fatale #edbrubaker #seanphillips #comics #graphicnovel #tegneserie #tegneserieroman #deathchasesme #lovecraftian #hplovecraft #tentacles #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #bookstagram #bookish #instabook #bokorm #bookworm #lesehest #litteratur #literature
Currently reading my first Nora Roberts novel. She's one of those authors whose name I've stumbled across regularly (obviously, as she has written more than 200 books), but never really been interested in checking out. Her most common genre, romance, isn't my cup of tea. But when I saw this book, Shelter in Place, I figured I'd give it a go. It's a story about the aftermath of a mass shooting in a mall. Not a romance novel. We follow a bunch of characters as they try to cope with what happened to them. Tangled up in this is a sort of crime thriller situation. I'm enjoying it so far! #shelterinplace #noraroberts #book #books #literature #litteratur #lesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #currentlyreading #kindle #kindlepaperwhite #ereader #bookstagram #instabook #thriller #ebook #reading #lesernå
