Johanna Möller är ju verkligen kvinnan man älskar att hata. Så jävla sjuk liksom. De tar inte upp det i den här boken men det som jag tycker säger allt om henne är att hon försöker förklara alla anklagelser som hennes barn slänger på henne med att ho ...more

More like a 3,5, but it's Tolkien so I'm rounding up.

I was excited about this because OMG it's Beren and Luthien, who doesn't love that story? But I expected it to be a fleshed-out version of the story, based on all the writing Tolkien ever did on th

Jag läste ut den här väldigt fort, men det tog ett par dagar att skriva recensionen. Jag ville liksom inte hasta ihop något, för det kändes inte riktigt rätt, fast nu när jag sätter mig och ska skriva vet jag inte vad jag hade för smarta åsikter som ...more

The Disasters by M.K. England
"I had such high hopes for this book but it just fell flat 😔 I sped through the last ~1-2 hours on 1.25x speed just because I didn’t want this to be my first logged book of 2019.

I will say this though: it would have made a FANTASTIC movie. I would..." Read more of this review »

Neil Gaiman
“Start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there’ll always be better writers than you and there’ll always be smarter writers than you. There will always be people who are much better at doing this or doing that - but you are the only you.

Tarantino - you can criticize everything that Quentin does - but nobody writes Tarantino stuff like Tarantino. He is the best Tarantino writer there is, and that was actually the thing that people responded to - they’re going ‘this is an individual writing with his own point of view’.

There are better writers than me out there, there are smarter writers, there are people who can plot better - there are all those kinds of things, but there’s nobody who can write a Neil Gaiman story like I can.”
Neil Gaiman

David Eddings
“Keep working. Keep trying. Keep believing. You still might not make it, but at least you gave it your best shot. If you don’t have calluses on your soul, this isn’t for you. Take up knitting instead.”
David Eddings

Naomi Novik
“Well, I would have struck him, but I would have had to get up. You have no notion how difficult it is to arrange skirts when sitting down; it took me five minutes together the first time.”
Naomi Novik, His Majesty's Dragon

Frances Hardinge
“I find it hard to believe that a lady like...’ Pertellis hesitated, and coughed. ‘There is something elevated in the female spirit that will always hold a woman back from the coldest and most vicious forms of villainy.’

‘No, there isn’t,’ Miss Kitely said kindly but firmly, as she set a dish in his hand. ‘Drink your chocolate, Mr Pertellis.”
Frances Hardinge, Fly by Night

Andy Weir
“I guess you could call it a "failure", but I prefer the term "learning experience".”
Andy Weir, The Martian
