Hunted av Meagan Spooner

Beauty knows the Beast'a forest in her bones - and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city's highest aristocrats, far from her father's old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who's ever come close to discovering them.
  So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there's no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas... or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman.

  Deaf to her sisters' protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory - a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yevaäs only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive; the Beauty, or the Beast?

Nephthys, the seer, was able to keep the balance between all living beings and the universe. But Seth, the youngest sibling, was left without any special powers. The Waters of Chaos, which granted each god's talent, were running fry, and Seth was paying the price.

And he was ready to seek his revenge, dominating all who got in his way.

Norse Mythology av Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.
  In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, son of a giant, blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator.
  Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Once, when Thor's hammer is stolen, Thor must disguise himself as a woman, difficult with his beard, and huge appetite, to steal it back. More poignant is the tale in which the blood of Kvasir, the most sagacious of gods, is turned into a mead that infuses drinkers with poetry. The work culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and rebirth of a new time and people.

Men recensionsexepmlaren har jag ändå tänkt att jag ska ta tag i under 2017 ifrån förra året. Skärpning får det bli på den punkten. Men det är tveksamt om någon annan recension kommer att läggas upp. Jag har tappat lite intresse för bloggandet i och med att jag känt att läsningen inte varit den bästa unde 2016. Men jag hoppas att intresset ska stiga igen i och med att jag inte kommer ha några *måsten* med varken bloggen eller läsningen. En stor eloge ska dock min syster ha som trots allt ändå fortsatt publicera inlägg här på bloggen!!

Flower av Elizabeth Craft & Shea Olsen

These are the things that I've always wanted;
  To get the top grades in my class.
  To make my grandmother proud.
  And most of all, proof that I could succeed where the rest of my family had not: a Standford acceptance letter, early admission.
  My mother and my sister were obsessed with boys and love and sex. So obsessed that they lost sight of their futures, of what they wanted. And in the end, they lost everything.
  I'll never let a boy distract me. I promised my grandmother that.
  But that was before Tate.
  Before the biggest pop star on the planet took an interest in me.
  Before private planes and secret dates and lyrics meant for me alone.
  There's so much I don't know. Like why he left music. Where he goes when we're not together. What dark past he's hiding. But when we kiss, the future feels far away. And now... I'm not sure what I want.
