Bokrea på gång..

Nu är det bokrea imorgon, och jag har kollat in lite på vad de olika sidorna på nätet har att erbjuda. Förra året hittade jag ett par böcker som jag tyckte verkade intressanta. Och sedan brukar det alltid trilla ner några fler om jag sneglat på ett tag och sugit på och som jag tillslut köper ändå. Men i år så tycker jag inte att jag fann så många intressanta, det liknar väldigt mycket förra årets bokrea och de böckerna har jag ju redan som jag vill ha. Så vi får se hur många böcker jag faktiskt köper under bokrean. Några böcker brukar det ändå alltid bli oavsett vad jag intalar mig.


Adlibris bokrea




























Jag hittade ändå fyra böcker hos Adlibris som jag tycker verkar bra. Fredrik Backmans böcker känns alltid som ett måste, jag älskade En man som heter Ove och håller just nu på att läsa Björnstad som också är väldigt bra. Även om boken Och varje morgon blir vägen hem längre och längre endast är en kort och liten bok så känns det som en "måste ha"-bok. Agatha Christies böcker försöker jag samla på, allihop, tror jag fattas några enstaka, har inte riktigt koll på vilka, men jag vet att jag inte har Huset på Udden. Jag håller också på att läsa Omgiven av idioter, därför vill jag väldigt gärna också läsa Omgiven av psykopater, båda två är givande böcker att läsa, om man är nyfiken på människor och dess olikheter. Jag har aldrig läst en bok av Sophie Kinsella, men denna boken kom ut ganska nyligen och ända sedan den kommit ut så har jag varit intresserad av att läsa den för den verkar vara såå underhållande!

Bokus














På Bokus hemsida hittade jag en bok av Jojo Moyes, en författare som jag också älskar väldigt mycket och som jag gärna vill ha alla böckerna från. Därför känns denna boken som ett måste. Jag hittade även en bok av Jane Austen, Förnuft och känsla, jag har endast läst en klassiker av en kvinnlig författare och det var Charlotte Brontë. Hennes bok, Svindlande Höjder, var så bra att jag hoppas lite på att denna boken, även om den inte är skriven utav henne, också kommer vara väldigt bra. Girl Power!


Jag hittade ingen bok på cdon som inte redan fanns på adlibris eller bokus som jag tyckte verkade intressant.

Men jag har också kollat i Akademibokhandelns tidning och där fann jag ytterligare sex böcker som jag tyckte verkade intressanta och läsvärda som jag förmodligen kommer att köpa imorgon.

Hur börjar vi om på nytt?

Försök 1:
Det känns jobbigt att skriva detta inlägget, helst vill jag bara hoppa över det här inlägget och fortsätta bloggen och låta detta avbrottet gå omärkt förbi. Men det går väl inte. Det är Rebecca här som skriver föresten.

Jag tröttnade på läsningen, på bloggandet och kände att jag inte hade tid för det här längre så mitt intresse falnade. Jag vill inte sitta här och förklara mig, till varför det blev som det blev med bloggen men. Jag kände helt enkelt att jag hade så mycket annat att göra. 

Men nu sitter jag ensam här på en söndag och då kommer tankarna plötsligt ikapp och jag sneglar upp på bokhyllorna som står här hemma med böcker som bara skriker efter att bli lästa och jag börjar känna lusten efter att ta ner alla böckerna och bara läsa, läsa, läsa. Med det sagt kan jag inte lova att det blir med bloggen som det blivit förut men jag hoppas i alla fall på att kunna återgå lite till hur det var här innan. Jag kommer dock att blogga här själv igen, eftersom min syster, liksom jag, tappat intresset. 


Försök 2:
Det var över ett år sedan jag skrev på den här bloggen sist och mycket har förändrats. Verkligen mycket. Både upp och nergångar har kommit med 2017 men inget som inte har gått att ta sig igenom. Året började med en liten bilolycka på jobbet som jag kom lindrigt undan. Månaden efter fortsatte med att fira det kinesiska nyåret tillsammans med min sambo och hans familj. Jag fick min första "riktiga" anställning på samma jobb som jag jobbat vikarie på i två år, och där följde sedan min första riktiga semester på sommaren som spenderades bland annat med min syster på Rhodos i två veckor. Hösten fortsatte med överraskningar med Bokmässan i Göteborg OCH jag fick äntligen min tvåa som jag längtat efter så länge (med inflyttningsdatum i januari 2018). Jag har bott i en etta med silverfiskar så länge att jag inte stod ut längre, men letandet och tålamodet efter en lägenhet har nästan varit på bristningsgränsen. Någon månad senare fick jag reda på att det fanns en kattkull med kattungar som var leveransklara i januari 2018, samma månad som jag skulle flytta, så jag åkte dit och kollade på kullen och fann en bedårande liten kattunge som nu bor med mig. (Han är idag fyra månader gammal och världens sötaste lilla prins). Året slutade dock mindre bra men det är för personligt. Men året 2018 har verkligen börjat bra. Jag har flyttat till min nya tvåa och stormtrivs verkligen med min nya partner in crime. 

Det var bara en liten sammanfattning av vad jag gjorde under tiden som jag inte bloggade här. Jag tappade helt enkelt intresse för bloggen men nu vill jag ge det ett försök igen. Får se hur länge det håller.

Försök 3:

Jag vet att ingen kommer att se detta inlägget så därför tänker jag inte lägga ner så mycket energi på det. Jag har helt enkelt tagit upp bokintresset igen och vill ge det en chans och hoppas på att det håller i sig.

Reignited (Reawakened #0.5) av Colleen Houck

Before Lily and Amon met, before the cosmos was in chaos and needed three brave brothers to fight off evil were four siblings who helped rule the earth.
  Each sibling had a special gift. Osiris, the god of agriculture, helped mortals to grow and thrive in their natural environment. Isis, the goddess of creation, fostered health and wellness. Nephthys, the seer, was able to keep the balance between all living beings and the universe. But Seth, the youngest sibling, was left without any special powers. The Waters of Chaos, which granted each god's talent, were running fry, and Seth was paying the price.
  As time passed, however, Seth's determination and willfulness resulted in a very special gift, one that should have granted him the ability to enact wondrous change. But Seth's competitive childhood gave him a heart so cold and vacant that instead, his gift brought about great evil. Seth was now the god of inmaking, the creator of disorder and destruction. And he was ready to seek his revenge, dominating all who got in his way.
