Brderna Lejonhjrta | Astrid Lindgren, Ilon Wikland
post image

I‘m studying to become a teacher for the first four grades in elementary school, and now we‘re working with litterature! We‘re going to read these two and I‘m so excited, because these authors are my (and almost every swede‘s) whole childhood. Astrid Lindgren is the queen of children‘s books with Pippi Longstocking and Bröderna Lejonhjärta (The Brothers Lionheart) and many more! Tove Jansson is another queen with her books about the Moomins!

3/5⭐️ I enjoyed this book, but was sadly a bot disappointed anyways.. I didn‘t think it was as good as the previous book and I thought the first half of the book was quite slow and boring..

4/5⭐️ This was a fast read for me! I enjoyed the characters a lot and the plot twists. I thought the language was easy to understand and the world was also not that complicated.

3/5⭐️ I liked the book, but it wasn‘t the best feminist book I‘ve ever read. I thought it was a little bit too focused on these ten women, and had hoped on lore writing about more structual things. (And yeah, it‘s two of my uni textbooks in the background😂)

I am moving to a new apartment in about three weeks, and had planned to give my second (smaller) bookshelf to my older brother and buy a new white Billy bookshelf to match this one. Then yesterday one of my cousins wrote on Facebook wondering if anyone wanted his old white Billy bookshelf now when he has bought new ones. Ofc I said I wanted it and am going to go and get it later today and place the books laying down into the new one😄

4/5⭐️ A really good book! It took me some time to get used to the way it‘s written, but after the 50 pages or so I was hooked! The history of racism and slavery is devastating, and this book made me think even more about the slavery that‘s happening in Libya right now. We can‘t forget about the past, and must show solidarity with each other. I‘ve gone to demonstrations and donated money to end it, I hope some of you‘ve done so as well!

Samary Enjoyed this book. Although I wish I would have read it instead of listened to it on audio. The narrator is just awful. 2y

5/5⭐️ One of my new favourite books, loved this sooo much! The language was so beautiful, the characters (not only the main characters) were extremely interesting, the story was amazing and unpredictable. If there‘s any of you who understand Swedish I highly recommend you to read this if a Swedish dystopian which touch on subjects such as what it means to be swedish, religion, terrorism, timetravel, mental health etc sounds interesting!

irre I definitely need to wish for this one for Christmas. My parents are coming from Sweden so they should have some room in their suitcases!! 2y

The picture doesn't do it justice, but today I did my first book inspired tattoo! #asoiaf is my favourite book series of all time, and the quote "fear cuts deeper than swords" is one that I love and find very inspiring. I'm really happy with the result? do any of you have a book inspired tattoo?
