Reader, I failed...

Hi guys!

Last time I wrote here I was going to participate in the readathon called 24 in 48 readathon... Well, life intervened. As it sometimes does. But now I'm back on track. Even though I read slowly, I did manage to read two short children's books last night, I usually read them every year, because I can read them in less than a half hour and I always need more books towards my Goodreads goal... lol I read:

Daniel i Rom


Lotta pÄ brÄkmakargatan

I read them both in Swedish. They are both some of the first books I have ever received and read as a child. ❤ Daniel i Rom I got from my aunt as a gift. It is about a little boy who is waiting for his Dad on the Spanish stairs in Rome, where they are supposed to meet. They are on holiday in Rome. Daniel's Dad is a pilot. Then Daniel gets whisked away by another Swedish guy and Daniel ends up representing Sweden in a program with singing children from all over the world. It was a good book to start my reading life.

Lotta is a little girl who wakes up in a foul mood one morning. She has had a nightmare. Her mother tells her to get dressed and come down for breakfast. The sweater Lotta is supposed to wear is one that Lotta really despises. It's itchy and uncomfortable. Lotta decides to throw the sweater in the trash after cutting holes in it. Then she decides to move out of the house. She is tired of being treated like a little girl and tired of people bossing her around. She walks over to the neighbour, an old lady who just happens to have a great place for Lotta to live in. It's a small attitc filled with interesting things. She rearranges the furniture, plays with the doll and other small treasures that the old lady gives her to play with. When night arrives, the world gets dark and scary, Lotta's  Dad comes and asks if Lotta wouldn't consider moving back home.

Well, sorry for the spoilers. I do recommend these books for children. Astrid Lindgren is one of my favorite authors from my childhood.
