A Man Called Ove: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
post image

Hello beautiful!! 😍 I finally watched the Swedish movie adaptation of A Man Called Ove last night, and today I decided to pospone all blog obligations, put my current reads on hold and pick up my copy of A Man Called Ove for a long overdue reread instead. ❤ I'm so excited to be meeting favorite character Ove again and I can't wait to compare the original story to the movie afterwards while memories are still fresh. 😁

CoffeeNBooks I love Ove!! I really enjoyed the movie, too! 1w

I bought this adorable little flowerpot to celebrate Spring, and it looks so cute on top of my bookshelf! I decided to put together a little greyish blue bookstack to show it off. 📚😍 Also, I'm so ready to continue the Six Stories series and read Changeling! I still need to read Hydra first though...

Cage | Lilja Sigurdardttir

I always love a good international setting, and this #IcelandNoir trilogy definitely delivers. Cage is the third and final book of the series, and while different than the first two books it is still a solid read.

More in my blog tour review going live on my blog tomorrow!!

4/5 stars.

Blood Song | Johana Gustawsson

It's my stop of the Blood Song blog tour today!! It's the third book of one of my favorite newly discovered series, featuring bad ass characters Emily Roy and Alexis Castells. The first two books of this series already blew me away recently, but Blood Song took it one step further and left me both shell shocked and with my mouth hanging wide open. Or in one word: FLABBERGASTED. Boy, this book hit me hard!

5/5 stars

Manchee and me are spending some time recovering from Blood Song with the sequel of a previous favorite... And I'm having the feeling this just might be the first time I have two 5 star reads in a row. The writing in Muse Of Nightmare is gorgeous and simply glorious!! 😍

Blood Song | Johana Gustawsson

After being blown away by the first two books, I've been dying to start Blood Song... I've always had a special interest in Spain and its history, so having part of the story set during the Spanish Civil War and the Franco dictatorship makes this story extra special to me. 😍

Today it's time for my stop of the The Essence Of Evil blog tour! I knew I wanted to read this story as soon as I saw that the detective lead has a serial killer twin brother... Talk about a disturbing twist! The Essence Of Evil was without doubt an excellent read and a promising start of a new detective series. Dani Stephens is a fascinating character and I will be looking forward to hear more of her in the future!

4/5 stars

August 2019 wrap up! I read so many fantastic books in August and definitely way more than expected as well... Probably thanks to the #NEWTsReadathon2019 and my blogging break turning into a reading marathon. 😂

August favorites were: Keeper, The Willow Woman, The Sleepover, Dead Scared, The Passengers, The Archived, The Sixth Wicked Child and Twisted. All 4,5 or 5 star reads!! 😍

After so many people recommending this series and after loving book one, I already knew Keeper was going to be a winner... And I was right. The historical elements, Jack The Ripper, an international setting, the main characters, the writing, the plot and twists... Everything is just brilliant.

4,5/5 stars.

There was just something about this book that made me think about A Man Called Ove (one of my all time favorites) and I just HAD to read it. Hendrik does have that Ove vibe and this book made me both laugh and cry!!

Here's Delilah Bard snuggling with another 2019 favorite of mine: Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski. I've heard lots of fantastic things about this story ever since it came out and they are all true! I definitely can't wait to continue this series.

I've been a fan of Carol Wyer's detective thrillers ever since I first met Robyn Carter way back, and I'm really enjoying my time with Natalie Ward so far. The Sleepover is already book number for and without doubt another success!

Long time no see! 😅 I just got a new phone and when I was browsing apps to install I decided to give Litsy another go again... Let's see if I can stick around this time around. 😆

I recently finished the third and final #4MK book and it simple blew me away! I have a weird obsession with serial killer thrillers, and this trilogy is hands down one of my favorites. So SO good!!! 😍

5/5 stars.

Long time no see! 😅 I hope everyone is having a wonderful start of the weekend... I will be spending my Friday evening with a new story and one of the pending 2018 NG ARCs: Hunting Annabelle by Wendy Heard. I always like to go in blind, so I totally didn't expect the mental health angle! I'm definitely curious how things will develop...

What are you reading this weekend?

Ashley85 This one sounds interesting but intense! Curious to hear your thoughts on it. 11mo
yvo_about_books @Ashley85 it definitely wasn't what I was expecting! I had some issues with credibility and some of the plot twists, but overall it was an interesting and quite original read. It did read more YA than adult though despite the twenty-something characters. 11mo

Starting a new physical copy today as part of the N.E.W.T. Readathon! I do have a copy of the English version on my kindle, so if I struggle too much reading in Dutch again I'm definitely switching. 😅😆😂 This paperback copy is so pretty though. I love the foiled details and the back with the white background is gorgeous! 😍

RadicalReader @yvo_about_books wonderful username what does it stand for? How do you know Dutch? 13mo
yvo_about_books @RadicalReader I was actually born in Holland! Although I've been living in Argentina for years now, so my Dutch is pretty rusty. 😆 I'm trying to read at least one or two books in Dutch every year to try and keep up with the language, although I prefer reading in English. 13mo

CouronneDhiver Did you opt against adding another colour to the mix, then? 14mo
yvo_about_books @CouronneDhiver I decided to use grey as the extra color in the end mostly because our bedroom and living are blue and black&white themed and I guess it fits better. Plus, I already made a rainbow colored bedspread before so plenty of color there. 😉 14mo
