15th Favorite of the Moment #5

15th Favorites at the Moment is a monthly bookish favorites TAG made by me. Instead of doing the monthly favorites at the end of the month. I’m going to do it half way through the month on the 15th, with 15 questions.

1 FAVORITE BOOK

I’m almost done with Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven, and I’m really liking it. I’m also currently reading the third book in The Gentleman Bastards series; The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch. I know I have mentioned this series every 15th favorites, but it is my absolutely favorite series, and book 3 is sooo good.

2 FAVORITE BOOK CHARACTER

George and Jimmy from Deadlight Jack by Mark Onspaugh. George is an African American, and Jimmy is Native American. They are both in their 70, best friends, living together and fighting supernatural cases. I absolutely adore them, and it was so much fun reading about two older main characters. I usually read YA and books with younger main characters.

And also Libby from Holding Up The Universe. I love her, she is amazing! I can really relate to her and I see myself in her a lot.

3 FAVORITE BOOK COVERS

5 FAVORITE BOOK GENRE

As I mentioned earlier in this post, I really like Holding Up The Universe. I have to say I have really enjoyed reading contemporaries lately.

6 FAVORITE PLACE TO READ

Playing Sims4 and listening to audiobooks.

7 FAVORITE FOOD

8 FAVORITE DRINK

Green tea with lemon and honey.

9 FAVORITE RANDOM THING

10 FAVORITE TV SERIES / MOVIE

The new season of Sherlock. Season 4 so far has been a bit weird and crazy and of course really exciting.

My other favorite tv show is the Swedish tv series Frøken Frimans Krig (Miss Friman’s War). Season 3 came out late December and it is so good. Season 1 is about a group of women in the early 1900, and their fight to start up the grocery store run only by women; Svenska Hem (Swedish Home).

It is really interesting and important to see the feminists fight for equality. The women that has fought for equality, their struggles and how it was a 100 years ago. It is both educational and a reminder how important feminism is. I’m feeling very proud for all of the women who stood up for equality and female rights. It is rare for a tv series to make me so proud and emotional as this one.

Not all battles are violent. Meet a courageous group of women who takes on both the male rulers of the day and a corrupt grocery industry. Savvy is their strategy and cans of healthy food are their weapons. The three hour drama series “Miss Friman’s War” is a humorous and poignant story about friendship and fighting for your dreams. It addresses topics that are as relevant today as they were then: the demand for good, unspoiled food and the struggle for equal rights. Although “Miss Friman’s War” is a work of fiction, the story is partly based on actual events around the all-female food co-op “Svenska Hem”, which was founded long before women even had the right to vote.

  1. Contemporary books are the ones I run to when I want to take a break from all the sci fi and fantasy and dystopia. I think that it’s personally the most relaxing genre and the one that makes me feel the most at ease. I love all the other stuff you included! great post 😉

    1. Thanks 😀 This TAG is really fun to do and to look back at later.

      I’m not a huge contemporary reader, but I read it sometimes. It is a genre that is fun to read once in a while, I think. I couldn’t have read only contemporaries.

  2. Oh my god I freaking LOVE The Sims (and actually just did a Sims book tag yesterday)! I’ve been playing it a lot the past few days since I saw the toddlers update come out and wanted to see them (which I still haven’t actually done, actually…). I love that apartment you built! I’m terrible at building things so I end up just using the buildings that come with the game or I download buildings that others have made, haha.

    1. I did see your Sims Tag, I need to do it some times 😀

      I know I have played a lot of sims after the toddler update too, and omg they are so cuuute ❤ ! Thank you, I think building in sims takes practice to do. I used to only build square houses haha, and now I think of myself as an ok builder 🙂

      1. You should do it! 😀
        It definitely takes practice. Every once in awhile I try to build something but then I get mad that it doesn’t look nice, hahaha. I don’t have the patience to keep practicing until I get better at it 😛

      2. Haha yeah it takes time, it takes me hours to finish a build. There is so many awesome builds on the gallery. Sometimes when I don’t want to build or have inspiration, I download a build and only change the interior.
