Look at these beauties I bought at the Gothenburg Book Fair. I’m so excited to read these!
Fire (Engelsfors #2) by Mats Strandberg, Sara Bergmark Elfgren
The Key (Engelsfors #3) by Mats Strandberg, Sara Bergmark Elfgren
These first two (Swe; Eld, Nyckeln) are the second and third book in a trilogy series of Swedish fantasy books which essentially is about a group of adolescents who turn out to be witches and have to stop the world from ending. I now have the whole trilogy but in Swedish that is. It’s really good and I urge you to read them!
Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) (Swe; Rör mig inte) by Tahereh Mafi
Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) (Swe; Rädda mig inte) by Tahereh Mafi
This series was recommended to me at the book fair and it sounded really interesting, but I don’t know much about it really. I anyone has read these, let me know what you think!
Kaninhjärta (Rabbit Heart) by Christin Ljungqvist
This one is also a Swedish book, a YA novel about to twins Mary and Anne. Together they make a medium where Mary lets ghost use her voice and Anne can hear them.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find an English translation of the book.
Sigrid by Johanne Hildebrandt
Another Swedish book, which doesn’t have an English translation. I also don’t know much about it more than that it’s based on Sigrid Storråda’s life, which is a queen who shaped Scandinavia history. It sounded really interesting when I read the synopsis, a mixture of fantasy, reality, love and history. But I now realised that it’s the fourth book in a series and I don’t have the first three books…
Vi måste sluta ses på det här sättet by Lisa Bjärbo, Johanna Lindbäck
Yes, another Swedish YA novel which haven’t been translated into English, but the title translate into something like ”we have to stop meeting this way”.
To be honest, I bought this one for three different reasons 1, I really love the publisher; 2, the reviews; and 3, the cover. It’s beautiful! But I really don’t know much about it, I’ll let you know what I think when I’ve read it.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
And finally I got my hand on this gem. I doubt there’s any of you out there who doesn’t know about this book, but if you don’t, let me tell you something; this is one of the most amazing books I’ve read this year (stay tuned for the review). It’s about sisterhood, first love, fanfiction and growing up.
That’s it, guys! I restrained myself after that. I had a lovely day and I literally wanted to buy everything but in the end, I couldn’t carry any more books.
