For me it was luckily very general questions.

I have too many books and find new ones all the time. Booktube and Goodreads are ruining me.

And then there's Werner a little German boy, his talent for engineering takes him into a military academy and then into war.

It's a fantastic book!


I read this earlier in the year too, and it really was wonderful. I feel like some aspects of the ending really let it down, though :(

But, Overall I really enjoyed it, and I think there are some passages in there that will stay with me a long time.

Well you know how the story goes, if it's too loud then you're too old.

I am reading The Dirt and a book about spells, black magic, demons and stuff. The later one is quite funny even if it is said to be a non fiction. But I can't do magic still so... Or wait, is making wine disappear a magic gift? In that case it worked!

Oh wow, I think I finally found out my Superpower! :O

I have realized recently that I missed out on quite a lot of Classic books, so I'm working my way through some series that most people probably read when they were still children. I've just finished the Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman and I loved it!

Right now I'm reading Gisle Surssons saga. I havent really heard of very many of them, but I kinda look forward to the one about Olav the holy, as its one of the sagas I've heard most about. Which one are you reading?

A few books I've read recently:

Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
Fahreneheit 451 - Ray Bradbury
Catcher in the Rye - J D Salinger
Momo and The Neverending Story - Michael Ende (beautifully written German books)

You see I am doing catch up on the classics^^

@sheila: I'm reading one about a guy named Halli. Hardly made any progress tho. I haven't heard anything about any of those, I'm just a sucker for old stories and all things nordic so naturally all of that is on my "to read" list... would love to hear more about your class!

@fizzy: I read all of those in the past exept Jane Eyre... all classics for a reason.
