We have reading challenges and we share our wonderful pictures with you here. Year 1: Turned into a year and a half but 52 books we each have read. Year 2: Cut it down to 40 books and some slightly less 'out there' categories.
4/40: A Man Booker Prize shortlisted book: Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. I love this book. It is well written and thought provoking and beautiful and depressing and amazing.

3/40: A book written by someone over 60: A. S. Byatt's Ragnarok. A sort of retelling of the myth of Ragnarok through the eyes of a child during World War II. I expected something a bit different - more of an interpretation, than the actual telling that happens here - but I ended up being okay with it.

2/40: A children's book: Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events book one The Bad Beginning. A delightfully dreadful book. I don't know if I'll read the rest of the series, but wonderfully different from many other children's books.

1/40: A book written by a celebrity: Mara Wilson's Where Am I Now? Mara will take umbrage with me calling her a celebrity, but to that I say that her book is subtitled "True stories of girlhood and accidental fame". Mara is a tremendous storyteller and I loved this collection of essays and stories.

52/52: A book with antonyms in the title: Anna North's The Life and Death of Sophie Stark. This book is phenomenal. The structure and set up works in favour of the story as does its maddening elusive protagonist. I love that we never once hear from the protagonist, but is forced to view her through the eyes of the people around her - each with their own bias. I just really like this book!

50/52 - A book that made me cry. Okay this one is a bit of a stretch but it really is a sad book. There is incestuous behaviour, blackmail and traumatised children so I say it goes. Also, I read the whole thing in Norwegian so that has to count for something.

52/52 - A book which came out the year I was born. I am DONE! It took 4-5 months longer than first planned but I finished before the new year. And I got to go visit my old library holstebro bibliotek today to read my last book. What a conclusion.

51/52 - A book my mum loves. Considering how little my mum reads I could have ended up reading fifty shades and I am so glad I didn't. Barbara was written by Faroese/Danish writer Jørgen-Frantz Jacobsen and is a beautiful interpretation of an old Faroese myth.

51/52: A book I was supposed to read in school: Steen Steensen Blicher's Hosekræmmeren. I remember the overall theme of "The greatest sorrow in the world is losing someone dear." It is classic in Denmark for a reason, since it is a great story about love, loss and what that does to people. This version is beautifully read by Nis Bank-Mikkelsen.

49/52 - A book which is funny. Lauren Graham is amazing and funny and genuine and a joy to listen to. Her stories was a perfect conclusion to my beloved Gilmore Girls.

48/52 - A book by an author I love but have not yet read. I should have read this a long time ago. I need to get my hands on some more H.G. Wells he is brilliant.

50/52: A book I own, but have never read: Anton Chekhov's Gooseberries. Chekhov is very talented when it comes to shot stories. He infuses so much life in even the shortest of stories. I quite liked all three stories. This also featured The Kiss and The Two Volodyas

47/52 - A book which is banned. The Communist Manifesto was banned in Turkey until 2013 and then had been for 165 years. It has been banned and attempted banned in many more countries including Germany, USA and China.

46/52 - A trilogy, book three. Finally finished this magnificent YA trilogy and I highly recommend it. It was very captivating and Ransom Riggs is a peculiar writer.
