#Booked2019 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

I've been forgetting to add my tags for the #Booked2019 challenge! Here's what I've got for fall so far:

#19. Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (Evelyn is addicted to fame! 🎥)

#21. The Testaments (So freaking good!)

Question... Would the whistleblower's account work for #23/#24 possibly? 😬

#22. Wayward Son (Penelope is one of the POV characters.)

BarbaraTheBibliophage Hah. That‘s a good question. I found a book with the account in Scribd, even though I downloaded the account I read from a Congressional site. I‘d say sure ... but I‘d be more inclined to call it political intrigue than public domain. What do you think co-hosts? 2mo
Cinfhen I think it works for both categories 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2mo

Red Mist: Scarpetta | Patricia Cornwell
post image
Pickpick

• Finished my first Patricia Cornwell fiction. I had only read one of her nonfiction books over a decade ago; it was high time to try her Kay Scarpetta series. I started with this one (#19) after I found this book amidst several others and it appeared to be the only Patricia Cornwell. It reads well as a standalone so I didn't feel odd diving into a long-running series with book 19. The library has the rest when I start from the beginning. •

Treasure Island | Robert Louis Stevenson

Book #19: Upon graduating college, I was determined to better myself, and one of the ways I planned on doing that was by reading the 100 Greatest Books of all time. Treasure Island was my first official foray into reading all of those. Most of the book I read first were books that I incidentally had obtained from my grandfathers' collections...

I'm not doing the fall prompts for #booked2019 (they didn't appeal to me), but thought I'd use #rehab as an excuse to post an update because of #19. #AnglophileApril @Cinfhen @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

Runaways Vol. 1 | Rainbow Rowell
post image
Pickpick

Argh...Issue #19 which is the first with a new artist drawing the comic (Anka still does the covers) & happily the comic looks as good as ever. Alex has plans & when the Runaways reject him & those plans, he heads off on his own. Molly follows & talks him into letting her tag along. Of course there‘s more to it but no spoilers. As in previous issues—strong writing, great artwork & fantastic characters make this comic a really great read.

Little Bird #1 (of 5) | Darcy Van Poelgeest
post image

Yay #NCBD!!! Took advantage of the spring(ish) weather—it‘s 48 degrees today—to run over to the comic store during lunch. Lots of buzz about the tagged comic & I was excited to find it. Shuri #6 with Spider-Man on the cover (yay again!), Runaways #19 (with a new artist although Anka did the cover), Wonder Woman #66 (with another phenomenal cover), and Black Science #3. Soon as I‘m done with A Dangerous Collaboration, I‘m diving in!

GrilledCheeseSamurai I'm about to read Little Bird right now. 🤞 8mo

I really loved this but I have to say I thought the ending was a little flat. I'm also surprised there wasn't any Cedar Point references?! I grew up around the midpoint of Cleveland and Pittsburgh, so Cedar Point was a big part of my teenage years which this book happens to take place during that time frame. #19 #2019

CoffeeK8 Oh agreed! I grew up right outside of Cleveland, I was surprised they didn‘t mention it at least once. 9mo
kricheal @CoffeeK8 It's such a big deal around here that even though I live much closer to Kennywood, I still prefer and take my kids to Cedar Point every year. So with the story having a bunch a affluent teens I figured there would at least be a mention. 9mo
CoffeeK8 @kricheal yes, I graduated in 97 and we went on yearly “science” field trips from my high school so I was expecting them to do something like that. 9mo
