It's Monday - What Are You Reading?

Monday again, and I've just finished reading "Curses! A F***ed up Fairytale" by J.A Kazimer and I loved it. It was a crazy and hillarious story and although it was a bit of a challenge for me to read (being norwegian some of the words and phrases coming from fairytales I had never heard of before), it was one of the funniest books I've read this year :)


When Cinderella is run over by a New Never City bus, her not-so-ugly stepsister, Asia, suspects murder. So she hires RJ, a private eye, to investigate. Little does she know RJ is actually a villain on mental health leave from the Villain's Union. Cursed with an inability to say no to damsels in distress, RJ travels to the Kingdom of Maldetto, meets the rest of Cinderella's family - including her fiance, the flamboyant Prince Charming, Cinderella's crazy stepmother, and a seriously twisted version of Hansel and Gretel - and dodges bullets, explosions, fires, and his own ex-wife to slip his own version of glass handcuffs on the wrists that fit. All while falling for Asia, who has a curse of her own to deal with...

Next book up is by the norwegian writer, Siri Pettersen. It's called "Odinsbarn" - "Child of Odin" and is an original fantasy based on norse grounds. I've actually read a few chapters allready and it's awesome!!
