Reading Recap | July & August 2017

September 26, 2017 | No comments


I was in a bit of a reading slump this summer and only read 17 books in July and August, of which 6 were in Swedish. There was some lows but also some great highs. Three of the highlights were:

Män som hatar kvinnor by Stieg Larsson ★★★★★
Paperback | 567 pages (Read July 2-29)

I finally got around to rereading the favourite The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and it was just as good as the first time I read it.

En man som heter Ove by Fredrik Backman ★★★★★
Ebook | 354 pages (Read August 20-24)

A Man Called Ove did not disappoint. Backman is a true wordsmith and I fell in love with all the characters in this amazing novel.

Something Like Summer by Jay Bell ★★★★
Ebook | 279 pages (Read July 22)

This was a random find when I needed something light and easy to read, but it turned out to be so much more than that. Definitely one of the best love stories that I have read in a long time.
