"Remember, remember, the Fifth of November
Gunpowder treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot"
Thanks for the tag @TK421 !
1. Lots! But I'll go with V for Vendetta.
2. Still lots! On the Night of the Seventh Moon by Victoria Holt.
3. Litsy, Goodreads, a small notebook.
4. A bunny shaped cloud over our house.
5. I don't know who's left, so join in if you want!
Oh my gosh. Grab a copy of this and get reading. This is one of those graphic novels that justifies the genre. This book is so quotable and so poignant.
I may use this one for #graphicnovel for #booked2019 challenge. I‘m not good with graphic novels and just don‘t get anything from them. It‘s a tie between this one and To Kill a Mockingbird at the moment.
This one is great, of course. Very different from the movie, but considering how different the times were when it was published vs when the movie came out & all the knowledge about nuclear weapons & their after effects that had been gained in that time, it‘s no wonder. I also loved that they kept chapters that were merely meant to serve as interludes in the book for completeness.
Trying to get out of this reading slump that not having time to read has put me in by reading some Alan Moore. I‘ve always wanted to read this graphic novel as I love the movie and I loved Watchmen, & I found it the other day on the Libby app. #graphicnovel #libbyapp #libbybyoverdrive #ipadreading #readingslump
Repost for @Billypar :
So excited to be co-hosting November's music photo challenge w @Cinfhen !
#NoFemmeber is about celebrating female musicians & female-fronted bands who're actively making music & awesome (imho). The playlist is on Spotify with the same name, so I hope you check it out & it stokes some feminist energy affronted by recent events in the news (if you're in the U.S. anyway!).
Looking forward to my first bookish DJ gig! 😎📚▶️🎶

Damn. Alan Moore is one hell of a writer. This was written in the 80s yet the parallels to today...it‘s chilling. I watched the movie years ago and liked it but I always hesitated on reading the graphic novel. I‘m glad I finally did. The political and social commentary is still very relevant.
The illustrations- I found it difficult to decipher who was who in the panels so if their names weren‘t said, I wasn‘t always sure who was present.
1. Evidently Keith Urban never carries enough cash to buy coffee. 😂
2. V for Vendetta
3. The two succulents that are inside the house during the winter are now outside for the summer.
4. Social studies
5. All kinds of critters. Raccoons, Opossums, skunks, squirrels, groundhogs, coyotes, deer, snakes, a bunch of different birds, even the occasional bald eagle.
I enjoy a good graphic novel! They‘re fast paced. They‘re visually stunning. And they really allow authors and artists to collaborate in a unique manner of storytelling. Decided to download this guy after watching the movie the other night. Hopefully V‘s dialogue is just as alluding and alliterative as Hugo Weaving‘s portrayal.
Find it kind of disturbing how relevant this book--published in the 80s-- is to 2018

Thanks @TK-421 for hosting this! I love quotes and I love designing pics for each quote. I had a blast finding ones that for April & I look forward to May‘s challenge. I may have to do an April quote recap on my blog! 😀
I watched this movie years ago. I'm glad that I finally read the book. I didn't remember the government sectors having the names of body parts in the movie, "The Eye," "The Ear," "The Fingers," etc. It made me wonder what other things I've forgotten from the movie, or just didn't catch the first time around.
The library‘s Hoopla app has a pretty good graphic novel format, you can view whole page or panel by panel, which I prefer.
Also, you wouldn‘t believe how loud my dog is snoring. #dogsoflitsy
After discussing this topic with @cobwebmoth , I think that V for Vendetta is by far one of the best book to film transitions that I have ever seen. Thanks for the generous giveaway opportunity @callielafleur ! #outlanderfortheholidays
Watching V and making a couple more dishcloths for xmas gifts.

I've been meaning to read this classic #graphicnovel for years. Set in a London where a fascist, totalitarian government has taken over, one man sets out to bring down the authoritarian government & return freedom to the people. The artwork & writing are superb in this work. It's clear why it's regarded by many as one of the greatest graphic novels of all time.
