As for this second pic, you know I like the woods and this photo was taken by plane by a photographer who lives in my "village". It shows my favorite woods to the left, I live in the middle of the picture ;) And you can check out more of his, Patrik Forth's photos on Instagram 


.....................................

When a tenth-century Viking's ship blows off course, he finds himself in the twenty-first century and in the arms of a successful and beautiful American psychologist.

My thoughts:
So yes this one was enjoyably, but omg way too much silliness.

Jorund the viking gets transported to Texas, the year 2000. Jorund, this mighty viking, learned Saxon on his travels. Good for him. And when he comes to Texas everyone understands him...and he understands everyone. For real. I mean seriously! If I met him and he spoke Saxon to me I would not understand him. If he spoke Norse to me I would not understand that.  It has been a 1000 years. It's not like they all had a degree in anglosaxon. Languages change. But ok, maybe he was really smart and picked up an entire new language in seconds.

*big eyeroll*

So sexy nekkid viking shows up. Maggie the shrink takes care of him. He is all flirty (at the mental hospital) and hi-jinks can begin. I did like that. It was so silly. He thought she was a prostitute. He did not understand this world. She thought he was crazy (and still liked him, hmmm.) Her twins wants a new daddy and they all lived happily ever after.

And omg there are SO many viking books! But why do the women go back in time (no toilets!) and the viking men gets to come here? More fun? Ugh, no toilets.

Conclusion:
So yes it you want silly and fun then this is the book.

  2. I wonder if there is a book where a modern man goes back or a past girl goes forward? That would be a nice change up!

  3. Cool pics :)
    That viking book sounds like a fun summer read. But learning a new language in seconds? Hard to believe.

    1. No, the author meant that a man speaking Saxon can be understood now *coughs* as if

    1. They are blueberries, but then I learned that our blueberries are not like your blueberries and they are called bilberries. But in our language they are blueberries ;)

  7. Oh my goodness, yes, why is it that the women are the ones to go back in time? Let's get a story from the POV of a viking woman coming to the present and falling in love with a billionaire businessman or something :)

  8. "And omg there are SO many viking books!"

    BECAUSE VIKINGS ARE THE BEST, EVER. Also, why do all of the Vikings come to Texas? I'm sure they'd hate the weather. And where the hell in Texas to I pick up my Viking??!

    1. I who live in viking land would not go to Texas. Sorry Texas, but omg it is HOT there. We who live here up north is not used to that

  9. LMAO!!! You make this book sounds so laughable. Hahahahah! I might just want to read the book for shits and giggles. Seriously, though. That language thing is so far fetched it's not even funny.

  10. Love seeing your village. I read a Sandra Hill book a few years ago. It was entertaining and I laughed a lot.

  11. No toilets is a difficult thing I confess.

    1. I need a toilet, a warm non smelly one

  12. Pretty woods. Yeah, based on that premise there's a certain level of suspended belief necessary. I would not survive in the past, I am far too picky an eater.

  13. By Thor, yeah, you're absolutely right! We go back to no-toilets, and they come to internet, healthcare and (mostly) free education? Sexist! Also, wow, Linda I knew you lived in Paradise, but by Thor...! That is the prettiest slice of Paradise I've seen in my life! Lucky, lucky you :))) Have a good week!
