I am reading so many books at the same time, again -.-‘ . What gets to me the most is that I always start a lot of books, and then I never have time to finish anything because of life. Also, how can it already be a month since I did my last currently reading-post?? Anyway, here I am again, with some thoughts on everything I’m reading at the moment.
La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman + Gösta Berlings saga, by Selma Lagerlöf
These are the only two on here that are the same as last month. I don’t think that I’ve made any progress on them since then; regardless, I don’t have anything to add. If you want to know more of my thoughts, you can check out last month’s post.
The Trial, by Franz Kafka
I started this for class, but I never finished it, so it’s just been on hold since then. I do like what I’ve read so far though, so I will probably finish it. The Swedish audiobook is just 8,5 hours long as well, so it’s not a huge commitment either. The plot is also really interesting, because it’s about a man who is arrested for no apparent reason, and is then put through an absurd trial which ends in him receiving the death penalty. It’s a very important modernist novel, so it would be nice to be able to say that I’ve read it.
Kvinnor och äppelträd, by Moa Martinson
This is also one of those books I’ve started for class; we were reading it for our lecture on working class literature in Sweden. And it was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. Not that I really expected anything, but so far so good. I will probably finish this on audiobook as well, once I’m done with The Trial.
Falling Kingdoms, by Morgan Rhodes
Finally, something I’m reading for fun! I haven’t read that much yet, I think I’m only somewhere around page 50, but I’m finding it hard to get into. I wanted something that would grab my attention right away, and so far I don’t think this one has done that.
That was all of this month’s books! I can’t believe that I’m reading five books at once ^.^’
