Every February (?) the annual book sale in Sweden starts. Even though I’m not the type who buys all the newest and hottest books, there are a few that might interest me and this time it was Hudbibeln (The Skin Bible) by Johanna Gillbro – simply a book about our skin! It sounded super interesting, and I bet there’s a lot of stuff for to me to learn.
And as usual, Murakami books because I love his books. Then, I finally found the paperback edition of Jackie by Anne Swärd, I’ve been waiting for months! Can’t wait to read all of these! Right now I’m on the last chapters of book number 4 in the Earth’s Children series, but who says you can’t read two books (or more) at once? 😎
I read a total of 10 books last year; almost one book per month! I started the year with reading the last book of the 1Q84 triology (Haruki Murakami), a story that I loved so much! Another book I really loved is Jo Marchant’s Cure: A Journey into the Science of Mind Over Body, it was so well written and so so so interesting! I really recommend this book, by the way. And then, I finally started reading the Earth’s Children books by Jean M. Auel. Actually, the second and third book of this series (there are six in total) have been standing in my parents’ bookshelf since the 80s but haven’t been read since now! So, I asked my mum about those books, and she said she also wanted to start reading them but that we had to get a hold of the first book (The Clan of the Cave Bear) for starters. So we did, and we found them all on second hand! Anyway – wow – I love these books so much! It’s just such a great story… Right now, I’m on the third book but my mum has already finished the entire series, lol.
Below is the total list (in order after date of completion) + my rating.
1Q84 by Haruki Murakami (5/5)
The Vegetarian by Han Kang (4/5)
The Perfume by Patrik Süskind (4/5)
Cure: A Journey into the Science of Mind Over Body by Jo Marchant (5/5)
Finally, after taken nearly one year, I’ve managed to finish reading this biography by Walter Isaacson. Even though I don’t really fancy Apple products, it was such an interesting book to read! I really recommend it.
Started reading this book during the flight here. It’s really a book I recommend everybody to read, but it’s quite heavy to read – it’s not a book where you feel very happy and energetic afterwards, so to say…
