Found and read this fun tag at Karina Reads and ofcourse I took the opportunity to tag myself in it because I´m new to this bookblogging community and nobody have tagged me in anything yet. So with this I also say, feel free to tag me in these types of post in the future if you want to.
If you want to do the tag feel free to say that I tagged you, and add me in the description of the post so I can read your answers.

One word that you’re hoping 2019 will be?
Honestly I saw the movie adaptation of this book with my all time favourite actor Armie Hammer and my recently favourite Timothée Chalamet in the lead roles and I just fell inlove with this beautiful story. I basically threw myself online and ordered the book directly afterwards.
The book is a bit different because you can actually be inside the minds of one of the characters and how he struggle with what is going on. And that is something I kind of missed in some scenes in the movie. Still I must say that I prefer the movie. I liked the book while reading it and loved to discover this lovestory all over again but I have to say that I preferred the ending in the movie before the one in the book. And I know that there are plans on writing a sequel to this book which I honestly really really don´t want to read now that I have read the ending of this book. If they make a movie out of it and if it will give me the same feeling as the first one I might give it a chance.
Have you read the book or watched the movie?
I can´t belive how fast this week has flown by. I have worked my first week after a long vacation and started this Monday by having an all-day meeting. To say I´m tired is a understatement. And ofcourse when you work with small kids as I do, I can already feel the cold coming running to hit me hard for the first time this year. But then again, when you are tired, that means more downtime to read. And boy did I read.
What I recently finished reading: With lots of time to read I manged to start and finish both P.S. I Still Love You and Call Me By Your Name.
What I´m currently reading: I have just started The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Heard lots of positive things said about this books from people so that´s mostly the reason I want to read it to.
What I plan to read next: The President´s Hat is a book I have wanted to read for a long time and I have debated if I´m going to start this now or wait until February but let´s see what happens from now on.
I really hope that my reading flow will continue but as I said I feel a cold coming and don´t know if I will have the energy to read during the upcoming days but lets hope for the best!
P.S. I Still Love You is the second book in the To All The Boys I´ve Loved Before series and in this one we get to see how Lara Jean go through something really hard. A video of her and Peter making out in the jacuzzi has been uploaded for the world to see and because of it their relationship takes a turn for the worse. And exactly now the last letter has found it´s owner and John Ambrose Mcclaren enters the story.
This books feels much like a middle book in a series but still I found the story between Lara Jean and John Ambrose Mcclaren really entertaining. When he shows up to that party, well how can you not love him? Something I really enjoyed reading about was when all the childhood friends meet up at the treehouse and starts to play a little game together. And boy did I want to play with them. It sounded so much fun!
It´s an okey story and I really hope that some parts from this book will make it into the movie adaptation as well later. Something I did miss in this book though was the character Josh that I really liked in the first one. Now I just need to finish the series and hope that the ending to this series will be as good as the first book. And ofcourse it has a bit more Josh in it!
In December I saw that these two really beautiful books was on sale so I placed an order and then the wait began. But yesterday the books finally arrived. Hallelujah!
Little Women (150th Anniversary Illustrated Edition)
I saw this stunning copy of Little Women on Mackenzie Lanes Booktube and I just heard it calling my name. During this year I want to read more classics and I had just seen the movie adaptation and felt that now was the time for the book to be read.
Call Me By Your Name
Like I said at the Monday What Are You Reading post I saw the movie and fell inlove with the two main leads, and when I saw that the story was based on a book ofcourse I had to put it in the shoppingcart too. Going to throw myself on it after I have finished writing this post.
Happy start of the week my fellow booknerds!
Ugh the dreaded Monday suddenly appeared which in my case meant that the glorious vacation have ended and I´m back on work once again. And surfing around on your beautiful blogs, as you do when tired, I found this little fun tracker thingy at Mistys Bookspace and she found it from The Book Date blog so I thought that I would try it out. Might be a fun way to keep track on my reading and get more recommendations from you by seeing what you guys have read or are reading.
What I recently finished reading: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White. A dark and amazing story-retelling of Frankenstein. A real pageturner! Full review of the book, you can find if you PRESS HERE!
What I´m currently reading: P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han. This is the second book about Lara Jean and so far I really enjoy it but I have to admit that it really feels like a second book in a series.
What I plan to read next: Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman. I saw the movie adaptation and just fell for the story and the two main leads (and my crush on Armie Hammer did not grow smaller I tell you). When I saw that it was based on a book I went online immediately to order it. I just got a text today that I can fetch it at my post office tomorrow.
Monday has soon passed and I just want to wish you all a happy reading week with lots and lots of adventures in the magical bookworld. Hopefully I will finish P.S. I Still Love You and manage to start Call Me By Your Name in the middle of this week. But as you guys probably know already, sometimes life gets in the way of reading and I know that I have late night meetings this week. But keeping my fingers crossed over here!
I got this stunning book in one of the Whimsify subscription boxes last year and I really wanted to throw myself on it as fast as I could but sadly life came in the way of me reading but what a perfect first read of the new year!
This is a dark re-telling of Mary Shelleys Frankenstein and I´ll tell you, I couldn´t put it down for one second! Firstly Kiersten White have created a creepy world which I would like to compare to a costume drama with a dark and broody tune to it. I loved following Elizabeth in her mission to find her love Victor after he had left her to go and study abroad. But during the story we realise that something isn´t right. Who is this Victor Elizabeth is so found of? We get to read the story from two sides, what happend before when Elizabeth and Victor was young and then the present where she leaves the Frankenstein mansion to find him once again.
I don´t want to tell you to much about the story but I gave the book a full 5 points. Loved how Kiersten had written the complexed characters and even though I had a feeling correct in the end it still was so well written that I didn´t mind. What a great start to 2019!
