The Circle REVIEW


Sara B. Elfgren

Mats Strandberg

One night, when a strange red moon fills the sky, six school girls find themselves in an abandoned theme park, drawn there by a mysterious force. 

A student has just been found dead. Everyone suspects suicide. Everyone - except them. In that derelict fairground an ancient prophecy is revealed. They are The Chosen Ones, a group of witches, bound together by a power, one which could destroy them all. But they soon learn that despite their differences they need each other in order to master the forces that have been awakened within them.

 High school is now a matter of life and death. Because the killing has only just begun. 

I'm not a fan of books written by Swedish authors. Not because they are Swedish, but all Swedish authors just seems to really suck. It's true, but I seem to be the only one with that opinion. and i don't like to read about places i have been to, places i know to well. i read to escape. 
But then you might ask yourself, why did you pick up this Swedish book when you don't even like books written by Swedish authors? and the answer to that is simple; half of the Swedish civilization was reading the book. of course i had to check up the hype myself, and i. fell. in. love. i loved every bit of the book, simply just everything! sometimes it could get a bit disoriented because the book is from 5 -7 peoples POV, but It got better after a while.

The Boy in the Pajamas REVIEW

By: John By
one of these books you would NEVER pick up, the only reason you read the book is because your teacher shoves it at your face. that was what happen't to me, ad that was how i was introduced to this book, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas... and Im glad she did because i really enjoyed the book! i fell in love with sweet little Bruno, and just everything with this book...

 Berlin 1942

When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence running alongside stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance.

But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.

J.K. Rowling - other books than Harry Potter?

to be, or not to be. that's the million dollar question. im sure that ALL of you guys have heard of the Harry Potter books, and the author, J.K. Rowling. her books are the second (!) most read books, after the bible. so when an author as big as her start's to write other books people always start to wonder. will she be able to do it? how come she can write something EVEN better than Harry Potter?
I personally have NOT read the Harry Potter books (I know, shame on me) but i have heard that the books are very good. i checked up Rowling's 'new' book (came out in September) and was pleased to find out that it did not look like HP a bit.


When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils ... Pagford is not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

First time I heard him was at a store called Indiska. I had to ask the cashier which music they played, who the guy with the soft voice was! And here he is :


reading is sexy!

You know that people (most adults) complaining about boys not reading books. Reading is often seen as a nerd thing among boys. That's a common fact. But why is so, that girls read more then boys? The answer is simple. It doesn't exist any books for guys! Almost every book i have read is written from the girls point of view. And how funny is that to read for a boy? Not so funny at all. Well of course there is books in the Fantasy category, but  not everyone likes Fantasy books. So it should be written more books for boys!  And plus, is't sexy with smart guys who reads. Just look at this fellow!



i haven't been blogging because i haven't had anything to blog about..
anyway, i was thinking about interviewing my friends maybe like twice a month or something, because they are all so different, with different book- experiences. let's start with this babe!

interviewer (me obviously): how are you Carin?
Carin: im fine, how are you?
interviewer: im very down, wan't to hear about it?
Carin: naah... maybe after the interview. Unless you want to share your depression with the world.
interviewer: ok then. favourite author?
Carin: Jodi Picoults
interviewer: favourite book series?
Carin: Harry Potter
Interviewer: why do you like Jodi and the harry potter books so much? they are very different from each other.
Carin: very well-written, different from most books, amazing stories. they make you think and actually teach you things about yourself.

Nevermore by Kelley Creagh REVIEW

Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look. 

Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. 

As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares. 

His life depends on it.

I liked this book. in the beginning. this book had the most important thing when writing a book, a story. i loved the characters, especially Varen, since he wasen't like all the other fictional guys, hot, popular etc. the book was great until it turned out to be ot so great. why? because the author never explains anything. the "fantasy part comes in like then there is only 100 pages left, which is a big NO NO, and especially if you can't make it work!

Books about the second world war

the second world war. something far away, yet so close. we don't talk about it, and it's not something that affect us. but what makes this so real in my opinion is all the books out there about this war.

Christmas read

Christmas... the time most people walk around with a smile on their face for no reason. they look around and see kids play and have fun, from a far corner they can smell the bakery loading their shelves with gingerbread, Christmas cake, and they know that when they come home a house full of Christmas decorations will be awaiting them etc.
for some people that is.
other people walk around with pain in their stomach after too much stress, they watch their kids play in the snow, knowing that they won't get any christmas present's this year. they don't know how to celebrate this expensive holiday, without making their family feel like something is missing etc.
same holiday, two different versions.
this might sound cheesy, but let me tell you this; love is really all you need on  Christmas eve. being surronded with people you love. THAT is what Christmas is all about, whether you are christian or not
Take me for an example. I'm not christian, i don't believe in anything. however, i don't deny religions. anyway, Christmas is my favourite holiday because Christmas bring people together. simple as that

something else i love about Christmas holidays is all the reading you can do.
lot's of lot's of reading. before christmas i like to read about books that has with chritmas to do, to get that spirit up you know.. here are a few tips:
A Christmas CarolA Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. SeussHow the Grinch Stole Christmas
Christmas JarsChristmas Jars by Jason F. Wright
Call me Mrs. Miracle by Debbie MacomberCall Me Mrs. Miracle
Let it SnowLet it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle


City of Bones trailer and the Host trailer

THE WAIT IS OVER PEOPLE!!!! I CAN NOT DESCRIBE IN WORDS HOW EXCITED I AM!!!! I still don't think Clary look like the book version, and what's up with Jace's accent? but alas, i know this movie will rock, and i HOPE that the Host will be as good, if not more, as the book

Read this whole text, it's of highest import! 
where do i even begin?
let's begin with my thoughts.
when we sat in the salon i had no expectations. none. i did not really think they could pull it off, i thought the movie would be a bit cheesy, too much love. why then did i buy tickets to go and see the movie? the answer to that is easy. I still have that Twihard bone in me. and no matter what i thought about the previews films, im not backing down now. and man what a great decision that what.
this movie... i have no words to describe how PERFECT the movie was. everything, every little DETAIL, i fell in love with it all. the Characters were so well played, the fight scenes were great, the love scenes were great, EVERYTHING WAS JUST GREAT, and man did i not cry... i have read the books, but some of the scenes were new, and you WILL NOT be disappointed, i promise. but be prepared, something horrible will happen...
twilight made me take up a book after another. they made me read. they made me love it. but during these 4 ½ years i've been in touch with Twilight i've heard some horrible things about the saga, and sometimes i agreed with them. i started to forget all the good things about the books. but this movie opened my eyes one last time. Thank you Stephenie meyer, i owe you my life.

Niether had I, just like Lihini any expectations. I was even kind of pissed of because i had to see it, test the text morning and everything. But wow, I really made a huge mistake thinking so.
All this time with twilight, all nights up reading, all the depression while reading new moon. The emotions this books and movies have given me and so many other people all around the world, it's, i can't describe it!
One word that might satisfy the description of twilight is MAGIC.  That warm feeling in the belly mixed with some kind of worship and longing for the mystical, unknown. The urge to be in their situation even if it's terrible. The beauty of eternity and the fragile mortality. That's what Twilight is for me. That was the feeling I had yesterday while seeing the last movie, and i can tell you, it feels like forever since I had that feeling. It felt so good to feel that magical twilight feeling once more. And maybe it's the last time. I don't know if i'll ever have that feeling ever again. But I know one thing, everything has it's time and i'm grateful for my period with Twilight. Thank you.

Here is the soundtracks to the film. My personal favorite is A thousand years with Christina Perri. It was so perfect, the lyrics and all. Cried when they played it.
Various Artists – The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2
I have now one last thing to say to you. Put away all of your doubts and see the movie. Because if the movie brought back my love it can bring back yours.
xoxo Lihini & Linnea

bring me my bed

i am sooooooooo tired... yesterday i couldn't sleep so i was very tired in school, then i had a appointment, and then twilight... i was home around 3am, but it was ALLLLLL worth it...

xoxo Lihini



Tonight is the epic finale of the twilight saga premiere. I need to see this movie once and for all. So I can really move on, I think Lihini said the same lols. But I had my period of twilight-nerding. It's maybe not over completely, It can still be there somewhere! Just kidding, never gonna happen. Cuz the books and the movies really suck. But this is the end and I'm glad it's over, for real.
  One thing that worries me is that we're going to be home like maybe halv three in the middle of the night so I will not get much sleep at all and I'm having a test the first thing in the morning tomorrow, let's se how that goes.. whatever, a redbull and the problem is solved! 

Ah totally love this guy 


Jan Guillou - The Road to Jerusalem

In 1150 Arn Magnusson is born to an aristocratic Swedish family and spends his childhood at the Cistercian monastery of Varnhem where he is taught the best of spiritual and worldly learning. He is also trained to become a master archer and swordsman by the giant Brother Guilbert, a former knight. At seventeen, equipped to become a monk or a warrior, Arn returns home, a young man and yet an innocent in the ways of the world. Two sisters cross his path: he is seduced by one yet falls deeply in love with the other. In loving the two sisters he has committed a serious crime and he is sentenced to serve twenty years as a Knight Templar in the Holy Land...
In the beginning it was boring, I must admit that. But towards the middle it became better and I really enjoyed the reading. During the whole book parallels was lined between the life of Arn and the history of the 1100'th century. That was positive because I got to know more about the life and the history . But it was also a bit disturbing because I was longing for the story of Arn not the relationships between all the kings.. But on the whole the book was good and I will read the next three books I think.  
 It was fun to read something else than just the usual young adult. I think it's good to vary your literary habits. Read something else for a change!

Sorry for my bad update. I'm really sorry! My only excuse is the lack of time.
Today is fathers day, wiieh. Love when you get to celebrate people! Even the "old" people say they don't enjoy it I know that they somehow do. I know I will always love celebrations!
Me and mom gave dad some bath-thing, don't really know what it was.. But it's the thought that counts isn't is? But no not really. That's so not true. Like; "hey happy birthday i didn't bought you anything but I was thinking of buying that awesome book you wanted, but I did't bother buying it because that wouldn't matter anyway. Because it's the thought that counts!" Most Stupid thing ever. Just some thing some parsimonious idiot that came up with! 
 My dad is my best friend, the person that knows practically everything about me, the one that is so much like me it's almost scary. Really love him, there is no better man walking on this earth. 

Slammed (Slammed #1) Review

Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope. 
Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.

at first i was really pissed at this book, i don't know, maybe i had been having a bad day. anyway, my first thought; this kind of love is just to fake. you know that OBVIOUS love? that kind of love. until that day the truth chock them both, and then some really emotional packed things happen which make you really like the book, but however, in my opinion the book was a bit blank, i didn't think so much really happen't

Sisterhood Everlasting (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants #5)

i don know about you but the one and only book series i grew up with was The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. i totally loved the books back in the days, i was sooo young when I first read the first book. i remember re-reading it at like 11/12 age, following by the other books, but i don't remember so much about them now. so when i found out that Ann Brashares wrote a 5th book 1 year ago i was clueless, didn't know whether to like it or not. i mean, what if it makes these awesome books i read at younger age all of a sudden bad with this book, and all i will remember when i think about the books are bad things because of the fifth book? or what if the fifth book is AWESOME? i don't know, and honestly, im a bit scared to read this book.

Amy and Roger's Epic Detour Review

By Morgan Matson

Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut to start anew--just in time for Amy's senior year. Her dad recently died in a car accident. So Amy embarks on a road trip to escape from it all, driving cross-country from the home she's always known toward her new life. Joining Amy on the road trip is Roger, the son of Amy's mother's old friend. Amy hasn’t seen him in years, and she is less than thrilled to be driving across the country with a guy she barely knows. So she's surprised to find that she is developing a crush on him. At the same time, she’s coming to terms with her father’s death and how to put her own life back together after the accident. Told in traditional narrative as well as scraps from the road--diner napkins, motel receipts, postcards--this is the story of one girl's journey to find herself.

when i first got this book i thought, oh, another chic lit book, might be nice to read. and it certainly was. i liked the book because they both had two different stories to tell. however, i did not like the end, i simply don't think that is something teenagers do.
