Best in books 2013

1. Best Book You Read In 2013?
Probably We have always lived in the castle by Shirley Jackson which I totally loved and want to go back to right away! Need to get her other books. NOW. And I did really love After Dark by Murakami. And a lot of other books.

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?
Mybe Carrie. I loved the movie(s) when I was younger but expected something else from the book I guess. But it was good anyhow. I don't really plan to read anything special most times so if I pick somthing up and didn't like it it's not that big of a deal. Maybe The Stranger by Albert Camus.

3. Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2013?
Probably The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, which I did not think I would even want to read but ended up loving!

That's definitely Kaninhjärta by Christin Ljungqvist.
