  1. Last week
  2. I think everyone needs a bit of Bernie Saunders in his mittens. It's like dog videos. They're calming.
  3. Haha, yes, they told all about the teacher. I feel like there’s a void for news that ain’t corona or Trump, so they just jump on it when they find something. Apparently I read them as well, so I guess they do something right.
  4. Well, I don’t really recommend Thomas hardy to anyone after this book, but I’m satisfied that I got through it. It wasn’t even that heavy, just a bit weird and uninteresting. I guess you have to be in the right state off mind to get into the Host. I think it helps that I was super fan off Animorphs as a kid! Anne of Green Gables is wonderful! I love those books.
  5. Wooo! Was it worth it? I tried The Host years ago and couldn't get into it. Sometimes the book isn't the wrong book, but wrong for you at the time. Currently reading Anne of Green Gables
  6. You know I don't think I've seen much of Biden either? Except for the photo of him signing all the executive orders with a mask on. I love that the mittens have made the national news haha! Apparently they were knitted by a teacher who uses reclaimed/upcycled materials and she's been a bit overwhelmed by all the attention.
  7. I finished Thomas Hardy! Gonna reread the Host by Stephenie Meyer while I wait for my library.
  8. It’s so weird, I don’t think I’ve seen a picture off Biden after he became president, but I’ve seen Bernie with his mittens in every thinkable (and unthinkable!) situation! I mean, someone had photoshopped him into a where’s Wally picture. Also NRK, the official news channel have posted the knitting recipe for the mittens.
  9. Me too. Also yesss Bernie in his gloves is EVERYWHERE
  10. Ehe, we kinda closed the borders for people from both Britain and South Africa... guess that didn’t work😅 I kinda understand that it happens, but at the same time... the grocery stores are one off the things that will actually remain open, you don’t need to worry! But those people... I’m so tired off those people!
  11. Ahaha don't worry, it is the British mutation. I've had some interesting conversations with, ahem, certain types of people who think we should have closed the border to the South Africans because of the 'South African mutation'... I don't think the virus cares about which country it's in when it mutates into a more virusy version of itself. I'm not surprised that so many people are going back to panic buying though. I think it's people's go-to nervous reaction to all bad news... also some of those people are the same ones who moan about restrictions, break the restrictions and moan about more restrictions...
  12. Why do people never learn? We have an outbreak over here with the British mutation (yep, that’s what we call it... sorry about that!), and suddenly people are buying up on goods they don’t really need again. Also, since it’s only in some areas as off now, people travel outside those areas to buy stuff, like alcoholic beverages. I keep loosing faith in humanity! My area is just outside off the perimeter this far, but they will consider more restrictions for us as well during the day. Not that anything will affect my life much anymore. Only thing is, Mick Mac lives in the neighboring county, so if they tell us not to leave our own county, that will be a problem. Also the can close the school again, and that would suck. But it’s nothing that I can’t live with. Not like all my fellow Norwegians who obviously can’t live a week without buying alcohol... On a lighter note, is Bernie Sanders and his mittens a big thing in the UK as well? It’s all over my Facebook page!
  13. Yes, I did that. I guess I just have to wait and see what my library do with requests like that.
  14. Can you request it to your library? I've been doing that a lot with books that my library doesn't have. They're actually pretty good about buying them in.
  15. I know right? I was expecting The Worst. I am so looking forward to not hearing about the president tweeting Iran at 3am...
  16. I'm so relieved - both because Trump's reign of terror is over, and also because so far we've got through today without riots or assassinations...
  17. Definitely! I feel like the world is a little bit safer.
  18. Is anyone else finding that their skin is clearer and their eyes brighter now Trump's out of the White House? Like I'm not expecting the world to improve even a little bit, but I do feel slighty less generalised anxiety.
  19. It actually sounds right up my alley, but my library doesn’t agree. Or at least they don’t have it. Doesn’t seem like it have been translated to Norwegian either. Not that I would need a translated version, but the library is more likely to have books if they’ve been translated.
  20. The Bell Jar is good but quite heavy. Quite chuffed to have ~ influenced ~ another reader though! I hope you like it. The Scorpio Races is actually quite light, relatively speaking, it's a Young Adult novel so nothing too graphic or gory, and lots of magic - the water horse myth is Celtic, there are Scottish and Irish versions I believe, so it you like magic or myths you'll probably enjoy it?
  21. Earlier
  22. I’m about halfway through now, and it’s a weird book with so many unrealistic people. But I’ll make it to the end! I need something to start with when I finish this, any suggestions? Flesh eating water horses does sound a little too morbid for me. I actually ordered the Bell jar from the library after reading your blog, but it might not be in for a month or so.
  23. I think I'll wait until I'm on holiday or somewhere I can properly focus and sink my teeth into it. You can do itttt Still reading Pandora's Jar, but I reread The Scorpio Races over the weekend. I'd forgotten how lovely it is, even though the main topic is flesh eating water horses... 10/10 excellent fantasy read, I would go there on holiday.
  24. I’ve picked up Far from the maddening crowd again, think I’ll make it this time!
  25. It's a long beginning, but once you're into it it's hard to put down, and the ending is brilliant.
  26. Hey @Heroine Hit is this still for sale? If so would you ship to UK? Thanks
  27. I started Rebecca a a while ago but couldn't get into it (it was me, not the book). My brother was named after one of the characters so I really feel I ought to haha
