Books of June



Tittel
: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar ChildrenForfatter: Ransom RiggsUtgitt: 2011
Forlag: Quirk Books (Kindle)Antall sider: 232Stjerner: 4/5

"A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow, impossible though it seems, they may still be alive." (goodreads.com)

Dette var noe nytt. En lettlest, spennende bok som virkelig tok en ny vri p fantasy-sjangeren. Riggs stil holder deg p kanten og jeg mtte tvinge meg selv til legge fra meg boken (det var tross alt midt i hektisk eksamenstid). Det tok likevel ikke lange tiden fr jeg var ferdig, og grunnen til at det ikke ble fem av fem stjerner var at Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Childrener en del av en serie. Jeg synes det hadde passet godt med en mystisk avslutning og that's that, samtidig som det blir veldig spennende se hva som skjer i de neste bkene! Pluss for at det er med bilder, noe som fr meg til hres ut som en tiring, men det forsterker det mystiske elementet, spesielt nr du leser tillegget av forfatteren bakerst i boka!

Tittel
: Harry Potter and the Order of the PhoenixForfatter: J. K. RowlingUtgitt: 2003
Forlag: Bloomsbury(Kindle)Antall sider: 766Stjerner: 5/5

"Harry is furious that he has been abandoned at the Dursleys' house for the summer, for he suspects that Voldemort is gathering an army, that he himself could be attacked, and that his so-called friends are keeping him in the dark. Finally being rescued by wizard bodyguards, he discovers that Dumbledore is regrouping the Order of the Phoenix - a secret society first formed years ago to fight Voldemort. But the Ministry of Magic is against the Order, lies are being spread by the wizards' tabloid, the Daily Prophet, and Harry fears that he may have to take on this epic battle against evil alone." (goodreads.com)

h. Jeg ELSKER disse bkene, og denne m nok vre min favoritt, selv om Harry er over mte irriterende til tider. Og det er s mye som er utelatt i filmen!!! J. K. Rowling ass, hun er s bra. H!

To bker i juni, mer ble det rett og slett ikke tid til. Frem til 8. juni var det eksamen, eksamen, eksamen, mellom 8. og 15. var det fokus p masterprosjektskisse og 16. dro vi jo til Paris. Vel tilbake i Norge den 22. var det tid for pakke, vaske og flytte, og plutselig er det 4. juli. Det at jeg fikk til (nesten) tusen sider skjnnlitteratur er egentlig litt imponerende, haha!Hva har du lest i det siste?


I managed to read only two books in June, due to exams, our trip to Paris and the big move. Suddenly it's July 4th! As shown in the pictures, I read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs and the fifth book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoneix. I loved them both, even though I would have liked the first better if it was a single book and not part of a trilogy. It seems to me that when it comes to fantasy, there HAS to be a series, and that does not necessarily work out for the better in all cases. However, I am looking forward to reading the sequels, because the plot and the universe was very exciting and NEW. I am totally in love with the Harry Potter series, and I think the Order of the Phoenix is my favourite so far. Yes, Harry acts like an irritating, know-it-all brat most of the time, but oh, J. K. Rowling, you rock!

The fact that I covered (almost) a thousand pages is actually a bit impressive, haha! Whathave you been reading lately?
