Reading list for February

Good afternoon sunshine! I hope you're doing well and are looking for a bit of inspiration on the book front ღ These are my readings for February (And probably March)











Fifty shades of Grey by E.L. James
Using this and "A dolls house" by Henrik Ibsen in my special topic source in Norwegian this year, comparing how literature and domestic relationships is portrayed with a hundred years difference, I am re-reading fifty shades and a dolls house to get concrete examples this February. If you've been living under a rock, fifthy shades of gray is the story about Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, who fall in love and pursue a domestic BDSM relationship. Christian is 50 shades of fucked up and Anastasia is the ultimate hopelessly romantic virgin that thinks she can change him, and he her. A perfect read to prepare for this valentine, as long as you keep in mind that this is not a real representation of a healthy BDSM relationship ;)

How to be a woman by Caitlin Moran
This is the book I am currently reading which there will be an update on very soon. This is a non-fiction book where Moran portray her life whilst discussing important topics in todays society, sexism at the work place, hair, botox and how not agreeing a 100% with the most stubborn feminists is okay and you can still call yourself a feminist. I haven't finished it yet, so I can't say much about what I think of the book, but so far it's a worthwhile read

The secret keeper by Kate Morton  
Having 4,11 stars on goodreads and being linked to my favorite author Lucinda Riley, I made sure to pick a book up from Kate Morton once I saw The secret keeper on sale in bookshelves at my local bookstore. The book is said to be about 16 year old Laurel Nickolson that is witness to a crime, which changed her view of her family forever. Fifty years later Laurel is a famous actress, and living well. At her mothers ninetieth birthday she confronts her and asks her questions only her mothers past can know the answer to. This brings us back to pre ww1 England and up to the 60's, and if you love a good historical fiction, I think this book will be a real classic. 

The Angel tree by Lucinda Riley
A book of my favorite author I got as a Christmas gift from my mom, the Angel three.

" Thirty years have passed since Greta left Marchmont Hall, a grand and beautiful house nestled in the hills of rural Monmouthshire. But when she returns to the Hall for Christmas, at the invitation of her old friend David Marchmont, she has no recollection of her past association with it - the result of a tragic accident that has blanked out more than two decades of her life. Then, during a walk through the wintry landscape, she stumbles across a grave in the woods, and the weathered inscription on the headstone tells her that a little boy is buried here . . .
The poignant discovery strikes a chord in Greta's mind and soon ignites a quest to rediscover her lost memories. With David's help, she begins to piece together the fragments of not only her own story, but that of her daughter, Cheska, who was the tragic victim of circumstances beyond her control. And, most definitely, not the angel she appeared to be . "
