I am starting with a danish book called "Beskytteren" which means "The Protector". It´s abot a boy who is trying to find his sister, who has been taken by some very big eagles. It is set in some kind of middleage environment.
It's not my ususal choice of book and topic, but I am really enjoying it :-)

Keep it up!

Marie | 40 comments Keep up the good work, Camila! Im sure you'll reach your goal this year!

A horror story sounds interesting! May I ask who the author is?
I need to read some more danish books before my exam in June since I've been neglecting my danish books and read English ones instead...

Anyways, good luck and hope you had a great start to the new year!

Thank you :-)

Not really. I have my Goodreads Challenge, and I've been looking at Popsugars challenge for 2018.

And then I have my eyes out for readathons throughout the year :-)

I don't know yet, but I usually do the Dewey's readathons in april and october :-)

But I think I will be joining one or two more this year, if I can find any that is just in weekends. The week long ones isn't for me with a full time job and Family :-)
