I read quite a lot in December, so I’m just going to jump right in! There will not be any long reviews or deep thoughts on any of these books – some I didn’t have enough to say about, and some will be getting full reviews very soon.
“A Room of One’s Own”, by Virginia Woolf
I found this pretty slow, and it felt like it took forever to read. I do appreciate it for its importance, though.
“Sommarboken”, by Tove Jansson
This was the first of Tove’s adult books I read, and I loved it so much! It was very typical of her writing/story style, and there were certainly some references to Moomin. There will be a full review of this up some time soon.
“Vitsvit”, by Athena Farrokhzad
I didn’t rate this because I honestly don’t know what I think about it and now it’s been a few weeks since I finished it.
“Turtles All the Way Down”, by John Green
I have very ambivalent feelings towards this book. It was a typical John Green-book, I did not expect the ending, and the ocd representation was great. The thing is that that representation was almost too good if that makes sense, it was good on the verge of being triggering. There will be a full review of this as well at some point in the near future, where I’ll elaborate a bit more on my thoughts.
“The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, by Joanna Bolouri
This was okay, it was a good book to bring to the beach as it wasn’t too deep. There was a lot of swearing, though, so keep that in mind ^.^’
“Fangirl”, by Rainbow Rowell
I loved this ❤ . Cath was so relatable as well! I actually liked it so much that I immediately ordered Carry On, which I’m currently impatiently waiting for to arrive in the mail.
“Citizen: An American poem”, by Claudia Rankine
This deals with some important topics, especially race and racism, in a cool format.
“Minnet av vatten”, by Emmi Itäranta
This was just okay. There was no real plot and no real ending, and there was little explanation as to how society became what it is in this novel.
“Natten som föregick denna dag”, by Johanne Lykke Holm
I think that this might be my very first one-feather rating! I originally rated it two feathers, but at the moment, I can’t remember any of the plot. So be it that I skim-read it, but it says a lot that nothing in this book stuck with me, even though it’s only been around a week since I finished it.
