Hello, I'm Andrea. This is not so much a book blog as it is a "stuff-I-like"-blog. Mostly it contains books, art & illustrations, disney and anime scenery.

I also like after eights, Matt Berry, Kaizers Orchestra, persian buttercups and my cat.


I take pictures of my books, you can find them in the page below.

Gorgeous Puffin in Bloom editions illustrated by Anna Bond from Rifle Paper Company! Beautiful artwork on those endpapers and cover, plus special bonus materials at the end of each book. Including, of course, a recipe for raspberry cordial.

We’re giving away a complete set of four to one lucky person who completes our MG/YA classics challenge this year!

kawkka asked: Hi! I'm starting to learn the Norwegian. Can you tell me what is the difference in writing between the Norwegian and Swedish? In an antique shop in my town there are books in Swedish, Norwegian tend to be less. I ask this question because you're from Sweden (before someone on the blog asked you where are you from). Personally, I've heard that the Norwegian is more similar to Danish (I mean mainly in writing) than Swedish. And what is your opinion?


Answer:

Hmm well I understand danish and norweigian equally poorly (even though I’m part danish and have 8 cousins in Denmark). In text I can understand most of the context but not when spoken in both norweigian and danish. A person from southern Sweden is probably better at understanding danish than norweigian. This is not the answer you are looking for. Have a nice day!

I’m finally settled in the new flat and one of my favourite things about it is that it has windows in three different directions so I get a lot of light per day.
