It’s book review time! Today I have something a little paradox: it is the fourth part of the Millenium trilogy. A book that technically shouldn’t exist. As some of you may know, Stieg Larsson, writer of the Millenium trilogy, passed away. So The Girl in the Spider’s Web continues the story, but with a new guy holding the pen…
Goodreads Cover – The Girl in the Spider’s Web
The famous computer scientist Frans Balder returns home to Sweden after burning all the bridges in US. He is back to take care of his autistic son, August. Well, the perfect picture doesn’t last long. Balder is shot, August the only witness.
So, how did Lisbeth know this guy? And why is Mikael Blomkvist at the crime scene?
I had rather mixed feelings about picking this book up. Stieg Larsson’s novels had been intense, impossible to put down, simply fascinating thrillers. Would The Girl in the Spider’s Web live up to this legacy? Continue reading
Hey my lovely readers!
I’m continuing my journey through all of Rick Riordan’s books and recently finished The Hammer of Thor. It’s the second installment in his Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series – I hope there are many more to come!

Thor misplaced his hammer. Again. Only this time it’s not that easy to be found. So Magnus Chase and his friends are sent to retrieve the hammer and save the world…
I’m sure you know it by know: I simply love Rick Riordan’s novels. After devouring the Percy Jackson books as well as the Heroes of Olympus series, I was super excited about his new topic: the Norse Gods. One of the main reasons I enjoy Riordan’s works so much is because you learn something with each page. I had always been fascinated by Greek mythology but the Norse stuff was completely new to me. As this is the second book in the series by now I have a pretty good idea of what’s going on in Asgard and I can’t wait to find out more. Continue reading
I recently finished Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. So I’m ready to dive into a series. What better choice would there be than Rick Riordan’s latest take on the Norse Gods?

Magnus Chase is your regular teenager. Except for the fact that he is homeless. And the son of Frey, a God. Oh, and he’s dead.
Well, Magnus had no idea that his life was about to change completely but it turns out, being that isn’t that bad. At least not when you made it to Valhalla, a place where worthy warriors get to wait and train for Ragnarok.
But before Magnus can make himself comfortable he has to go on a quest to retrieve the Sword of Summer and prevent Ragnarok from happening, well, next week…
As you know, I completely devoured Rick Riordan’s book on the Greek Gods. So I was super excited to check out his latest series on the Norse Gods. Continue reading

We’ve reached a point in the books where you devour the novel in record speed as you desperately want to find out what’s behind the big mystery. The whole VFD thing is so fascinating and with each chapter a new layer is added. I am deeply impressed how intricate the story is. Continue reading
