I thought I‘d like this more but somehow it wasn‘t my cup of tea. I liked some parts of it and I think it deals with some very important stuff but in the end I was more interested in what happens to the door than the characters. What I did love about it though were the short chapters! #translatedbooks

I shouldn‘t be let into libraries. I went in to get Aquaman and instead of just leaving after I got it I decided to browse a bit. Eventually I walked out with the dvd and the three books😂 #whoops #libraryhaul

Finally finished this one today! I liked the premise of the book but somehow didn‘t end up liking where it led too much. It was good but nothing special. Or maybe I‘m just getting too old😂 #translatedbooks #libraryfind

A mighty good adventure with new and old friends and foes! I really enjoyed this more than the previous one. I was so glad to meet some old favourite characters again and overall the story was just so good. Can‘t wait to read how it all wraps up next year!

I‘ve been flying through this one and I‘m absolutely loving it! Apollo‘s bad haikus give me life and I love that we get to catch up with some of my favourite characters from the Heroes of Olympus❤️⚔️

This was an enjoyable read with a very interesting future world but I wasn‘t a huge fan of some of the choices the authors made. But I will certainly read the sequels at some point because I want to know what happens to Bug and how this all turns out! #finnishbooks

I‘m currently reading this interesting #libraryfind! It‘s strange reading a Finnish dystopian novel but I‘m actually enjoying this quite a bit. I‘m making good progress on it in the train which is good because I have many other library books to read as well. I can‘t even remember the last time I had this many library books waiting to be read! #finnishbooks

I‘ve been in a bit of a reading slump (again) so I gently forced myself to continue reading the tagged book and I have to say that I‘m still enjoying it as much as I did when I first read it!

Me and mom went for a small road trip and when she asked if I wanted to stop in one of the towns along the way I jokingly went “Sure, we can go to the library!” An hour later we came out of the library with this stack😂 The bottom two ones were for sale so we rescued them and the top ones were borrowed! #libraryhaul #translatedbooks

I was completely drained by my morning errands because I‘ve been having the most annoying small headache for days but it seems that my nap helped to get mostly rid of it so now I can enjoy reading in bed while listening to the rain outside🌧

Leah and I took the train today and I managed to finish this. I have mixed feelings about it because some parts were very relatable but at points the scene changes felt a little weird giving the story a little disjointed feeling which I didn‘t love. Overall an enjoyable read but I think it had the potential to be better.

I had forgotten how little I care about the plot and main character of this series. But I will definitely go on with my reread because if memory serves the books only get better! #shadowhunterchronicles

BooknerdsLife Hahaa 😂 Same! I kept reading the series for Magnus & Alec but I don‘t mind Jace either & thank goodness it does get better with each book 🤗💛 4mo
RosaS @BooknerdsLife Magnus and Alec are definitely why I kept reading too😄 and the other minor characters as well! 4mo

My final result for #24in48 is 4 finished books and 16 hours 40 minutes reading time! I‘m very happy with this result and I would love to keep going but I can‘t keep my eyes open anymore. I‘m glad that my final book for this was a Percy Jackson because it feels like a good way to finish; I‘m finally home at Camp Half-Blood and can drift off to sleep knowing I‘ll be safe❤️

Librarybelle Great job! 4mo

Finished my third book for #24in48 and I have almost 16 hours on the clock! Artemis wasn‘t as good as I‘d hoped and I think that had I been reading it myself I would‘ve given up a while back but Rosario Dawson‘s narration got me to stick around. In the end it was an okay story but nothing compared to the masterpiece that is The Martian.

bookandbedandtea Exactly what I thought. 4mo

I decided to move my reading outside for a moment and picked this to read. It‘s been sitting on my shelf waiting to be read for so long that I decided it was time to give it a go. It was okay but as with most Marvel comics I‘ve read I always feel like I‘m missing so much because I‘ve only read a handful of them. But I did enjoy the story and Carol‘s badassery! My second finished book for #24in48!

Ever since I finished The Red Scrolls of Magic I‘ve been wanting to reread the Mortal Instruments and I decided now would be the time.

”Sano sie niiko teilpäi on sanottu” -Kaisu Lahikainen in Silviisii, a dictionary of my dialect. The quote essentially means that you should just talk the way you‘ve learned to at home.

I just got the book today and it‘s already one of the most precious books in my shelf❤️ #finnishbooks #dialects
