Hi, peeps long time no see, yes, I know.
Let us begin with this, if I say so myself, delicious picture:
We had my mother’s swedish family visiting last week, which was a little chaotic (little children = noise!) It was fine.
Saturday night they returned to Sweden after having visited the Danish amusement park “Bakken” with us. Getting back home from the amusement park proved to be difficult because we entered a torrent on our way… It was madness! The roads in Copenhagen were sailing filled with water. I saw a sewer top fly up from the ground and a water pillar burst up from the sewer in the middle of the road by a traffic light. I feared that the car would break down from the massive water masses… Fortunately my father was capable of getting us home safe without any standstills caused by the rain. It felt so surreal, by the way, like, this could not happen in Denmark and more like something I had seen on the television.
Here is a bad picture that does not justify the floods that ran through Copenhagen.
Yesterday I went to Copenhagen again to go eat at a café with my two friends Sasha and Pernille. Roaming around in the major shopping lanes I noticed a couple of stores closed because of the damage the water had done to e.g. their sewer system.
A little book update is suitable, I think, so here goes:
I have read the following books recently:
1. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand – 435 pages
“It left me wanting to find out what is going to happen next. It is not the greatest book I have read, but with it’s theme being paranormal-angel-love, I think Cynthia Hand did an overall good job with this book.” 3 stars
2. Falling Under by Gwen Hayes – 324 pages
“I am a little confused by this book. It seemed so different in how it was built up – like it was not using any of the normal excitement-building-schemes. I was excited and some times a little impatient, so it was quite the rollercoaster. I liked that it was different but it took some getting used to.
The plot is more new to me than in a lot of other books and combined with the (to me) weird composition it made me like it. – Confused but a little excited by reading this? That is at least how I felt, when I finished the book.
P.S. I really liked Varnie he was like a fresh breath of air or something, a funny character that is not dumbass heroic but sweet and helpful – Amelia OPEN your eyes god damnit! (hee hee…) - 3 stars
3. Divergent by Veronica Roth – 487 pages
This book is one of the greater reading pleasures I have had in a while. (though, I have read some good books, too)
I certainly do not think that, it has too much in common with the Hunger Games or other dystopian novels I have read. You should definitely read this book. It is not reminiscent of the Hunger Games, besides being a dystopian!” – 5 stars
4. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – 485 pages, (I am adding my reading updates, too, on this one.)
07/04 – page 363, 75.0%: “This book feels like watching a soap opera now. Incest-love. I hope not, please fix this mess Cassandra Clare…”
06/30 – page 50, 10.0%: “I don’t have a take on my opinion of this book, YET. But, well, it may be a good thing! ;)”
“It was OK but still, there were some things I thought was TOO weird. Whatever, I will continue reading this series just to see how it turns out.” – 3 stars.
Sincerely yours, The Daydreamer
