Happy #readathon-day! Starting out with some Flavia de Luce, but moving on to an absolute PILE of Giant Days I've been collecting for the very purpose of readathoning later on. Happy reading, folks! 📚 ☕ 🍪
Overall this is a pick, but I did find it a little busy. Still great fun. I love that Flavia is smart and figures things out while still being portrayed as an 11 year old girl that‘s sometimes silly, insecure, sister hater/lover and who also talks to her bicycle!
Sometimes Flavia makes me wonder if there isn‘t any mishap or unusual situation she hasn‘t gotten into. At times this story was over the top, yet it was so much fun. I‘m looking forward to the next book in the series, but I‘ll wait a bit, as there‘s only so much of an 11 year old, chemistry-loving amateur sleuth I can take at a time 😄
Lots of reading time in the doctor‘s waiting room. Hubby just has a follow up appointment but the doctor‘s office moved, so I came along as human GPS😂
#nextup I borrowed this from our son and DIL‘s library, so there‘s no real rush to return it. I‘m just in a Flavia de Luce mood.
Book 3 in Alan Bradley's Flavia Daluce series was another hit 😁 I've really enjoyed listening to the series and watching the character development from book to book. This book had a little bit more info about flavia's mom and some touching bits here and there. Hopefully as the series goes on I'll get to piece together a little bit more of that backstory.
Apparently the first three Flavia de Luce mysteries have all melded together in my mind. I read the first thirty pages of this book with a sense of deja vu. I‘m pretty sure I read the whole thing a couple of years ago and I wasn‘t crazy about the story then either.
Oh what joy this series is bringing to my reading life! Flavia de Luce is just the character to bring me out of my reading slump. I‘m on my third book and each one is just as wonderful as the first!
Oh, Flavia! How I adore your little heart.
I am thinking that I might name my bike “Gladys”. These books just get better and better!
Love me some Flavia de Luce shenanigans! The relationship between Flavia and her sisters crack me up. “You odious little prawn!” “You stupid sausage!”
Been on a crazy mystery kick lately and this book is scratching the itch in such a fun way. I love this series.
I couldn‘t handle the voice of the narrator. I‘ll have to try in print format instead.
Another delightful visit to the world of Flavia de Luce. In this one Flavia investigated the beating of a gypsy & the murder of a local thug. Again I find Flavia a pure delight to follow, old friends wonderful to revisit, & new friends delightful to get to know. Entwhistle‘s narration is so perfect that I cannot imagine any ither voice for the inimitable Miss de Luce. I highly recommend you listen to this series if you can.
Book three in the Flavia de Luce mystery series finds Flavia hanging out with gypsies and discovering some family secrets. Flavia is as brainy and know-it-all as ever. Another good narration by Jayne Entwistle. I admit I find Flavia to be a tad annoying, but it is still a good addition to the series.
#SebastianKitty photobombed my audiobook shot with #Zeke . He‘s a squirt! #catsoflitsy
5 stars loved it.. Will continue and actually start from the first book even thought I guess you could read them as stand alone..
Ok so I'm starting the series a little way into it but I couldn't find the first book on Libby or overdrive but I don't know what made me wait so long to read this series I love it
I enjoy this series when I need a fun read. It's like reading palate-cleansing. Haha!
This installment is consistent with the first two: young, clever, scientist/detective Flavia de Luce, who is terrorized by her older sisters and generally misunderstood by the world solves mysteries.
[I listened on Libby & own the series in hardcover.]
Been waiting for my dad to get discharged (finally!) from the hospital since 12pm.... it's 6:45pm now. Hospitals are the worse places ever... been visiting here since last Wednesday.
My plan for once he is home is to pour a very LARGE glass of wine, turn on my Christmas tree, light some candles, and read this book.
"For the next dozen paces, the walls were inexplicably moss green, and then, just as quickly, a queasy mustard yellow. Whoever had chosen the paint, I decided, wanted to ensure that anyone who wasn't sick when they entered the hospital jolly well would be before they left."
Made me chuckle. ☺ #currentread #currentlyreading
Another fun romp with Flavia! I didn't think the payoff to the mystery was as good in this one, but I enjoyed lots of the people she met along the way.
You're all hitting double digits on your #24in48 and I'm crawling into bed after twelve straight hours of party prep: my little brother's grad party is tomorrow and I'm exhausted. But I'll at least get a little reading in, and after the party tomorrow I will retreat and hibernate with books, cat, and leftover salsa (homemade from our garden 💖)
Wow! Thank you so much @Bookladylinda !!! I enjoyed the first Flavia book so much! I think I am officially part of #teamflavia now I can't wait to read more of her antics! Totally hit the nail on the head as a #Murakamiaddict and I love the bookmark and page clips! I am obsessed with owls! Thank you again so much!! #summersecretsanta #summersantagoespostal
