SEPTEMBER SUMMARY. Or September favorites, whatever you want to call it! Some sort of wrap up of September.
This was a very good reading month. Partially because of Storytel and the audiobooks I actually enjoyed. And all the feminism, I’m loving it.
Kerstin Ekman’s Händelser vid vatten (Blackwater)
Carin Holmberg’s Det kallas manshat
Dave Eggers The Circle
Chika Unigwe’s On Black Sisters’ Street
Nina Björk’s Under det rosa täcket (Under the pink duvet)
Annika Lantz’s Vad ska en flicka göra (What’s a girl to do)
Amanda Lovelace’s The Princess Saves Herself in this One
Katarina Wennstam Flickan och skulden (The Girl and the Guilt)
Felicia Day You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)
Simon Pegg Nerd Do Well
Lois Lowry The Giver
I wanted to love Ekman’s book, like really, since she seems to be an awesome person. But I’m like “meh”. The first half was somewhat of a struggle, and at no point did I warm up to any of the characters in it. Equally lacking interesting characters was The Circle. Like, I enjoyed reading it, but I will never recommend it to anyone because of shallow (female) main person. Wennstam’s book is the worst thing (qua contents, not writing) I have ever read. Still makes me sick just thinking of it, and how can you even believe in the judicial system of your country after reading it? So after that I had to read something lighter, and went for two autobiographies. Day’s was by far the more enjoyable, and she had me giggling a bunch of times. Pegg’s was somewhat of a disappointment, mainly focusing on him as a kid and with a weird side-story.
A wedding! Two 50+ people tied the knot.
