The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley


I will be completely honest. I borrowed this book from the library only because of the pretty cover.

Blurb from the back:
“He lived his life like clockwork. Until he met the watchmaker.”

The story was very clever but for some reason the book just didn’t “speak” to me. It just didn’t hold my attention for long and so I think it took me a month to finish it. I would still recommend it though. I enjoyed the mystery and the concept a lot even though it took me some time to read it all. Natsasha Pulley has a new book coming out (or it might be released all ready) that I might read too.

Kretsen och Drömtjuvarna av Maggie Stiefwater


Jag hade sett dessa omslag länge och läst mycket gott om serien. När jag nu hittade den som eböcker på Storytel så kunde jag inte låta bli att prova läsa dem. Vid skrivande stund har jag precis påbörjat den tredje och sista boken.

Jag gillar konceptet som Maggie har tagit fram och hur det utvecklar sig under böcketnas gång. Dessa böcker var mycket bättre än jag trodde de skulle vara. Rekommenderas varmt!

When Dimple met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

This was a cute, easy to read, romantic contemporary novel about two 18 year olds trying to find their way in life and love.


It was refreshing to read a book where the main cast is Indian American. I liked Rishi, such a gentleman! And I really liked Dimple. A non-perfect main character I got frustrated at sometimes.

I wished we would have gotten more interactions in class and more funny scenes in school though. Other than that it was a fun easy read.

The Sumage Solution by Gail Carriger

I got offered to read a ARC of Gail Carrigers new novel The Sumage Solution! Thank you Gail!

About the book:

NYT bestseller Gail Carriger, writing as G. L. Carriger, presents an offbeat gay romance in which a sexy werewolf with a white knight complex meets a bad boy mage with an attitude problem. Sparks (and other things) fly.

Max fails everything – magic, relationships, life. So he works for DURPS (the DMV for supernatural creatures) as a sumage, cleaning up other mages’ messes. The job sucks and he’s in no mood to cope with redneck biker werewolves. Unfortunately, there’s something oddly appealing about the huge, muscled Beta visiting his office for processing.

Bryan AKA Biff (yeah, he knows) is gay but he’s not out. There’s a good chance Max might be reason enough to leave the closet, if he can only get the man to go on a date. Everyone knows werewolves hate mages, but Bryan is determined to prove everyone wrong, even the mage in question.

This is something completely new from Gail Carriger. Set in a modern day San Francisco we meet a mage and werewolf (and his pack) and things get complicated and romantic. It is an easy, romantic (and sexy) read with supernatural elements. There is also a mystery in there too! All good things!

If you think it might be something for you it is available as ebook and paperback from Amazon (and more places in the US I presume).

Thank you again Gail Carriger for letting me read your book!




The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman

I really can’t stress how much I love the Invisible Library series! 

This third book is no exception. It is great! There is adventure, mystery, friendship, fairies, books, dragons, magic, almost anything you can imagine. Genevieve Cogman has really created a great concept and she delivers every time.

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

The sequel to Lady Midnight.. Of course I had to read it.

I liked it. Like all books I’ve read by Cassandra Clare, I liked it. There’s many characters in this book and I wish it had been longer so I could get more from each character. This book is all ready quite a hefty read and I do understand from a logical standpoint that some cutting of scenes had to be done to even get in into this length. I just want more from a fan point in view!


It was a good sequel and it had a great build up for the next book. I can’t wait until next year (or maybe even 2019?) to read the third book in this series.


För att kunna leva av Yeonmi Park


Yeonmi Park föddes i den nordkoreanska staden Hyesan, på gränsen till Kina. 2007 flydde hon och hennes mor till Sydkorea via Kina och Mongoliet. I denna självbiografi berättar hon om sin uppväxt, hur hon insåg att familjen måste fly för att överleva och om hur hon utsattes för både människosmugglare och trafficking på sin väg till Kina och Sydkorea. Numera bor Park i Seoul och är internationellt engagerad människorättsaktivist.



Den här boken var otroligt intressant. Den är välskriven och ger en väldigt bra bild över hur samhället i nordkorea fungerar och vilka svårigheter som finns. Det gav en väldigt bra grund för boken och den spännande, hjärtskärande historien. Det var verkligen en gripande bok och jag läste hela boken i ett sträck från morgon till kväll. Jag kan inte mer än att rekommendera denna bok till alla. Det är ingen bok du läser om du vill få härliga bubbliga känslor, för det är en tung bok. Men också hoppfull. Yeomni är verkligen en inspirerande person.

Bästa boken jag har läst detta år!
