Hmmm…this one was weird. I listened to the audiobook. At times, it was unbelievable. Was that the intention? I think so, yes. Even though the cover looks middle grade, I do not recommend it for children. Hansel & Gretel are the MCs, there are beheadings, monsters, dragons, the devil and his grandma. The narrator is sarcastic and makes up for the creep - kind of. #91 #BookSpin #BFC22 #FAIRYTALE #SuperSeptember #AutumnBingo2022 blue-cover; 3 stars

Ann_Reads Way to go, @Allylu! That really is a strikingly pretty blue cover but it's too bad the story was disappointing. 16h

Finished this one a few minutes ago. I love this series. Star‘s story is complicated but wonderful. I love the accents by the narrator, especially Star‘s French one. Having Beatrix Potter involved was great, too. I am happy to have this long audiobook finished before diving in to #Scarathlon2022 in October. #90 #BookSpin #BFC22 #AlmostAChunkster at 513 pages #SERIES2022 #SuperSeptember

The Last Cuentista | Donna Barba Higuera

Finished The Last Cuentista by Donna Barba Higuera which I borrowed from our local library. It certainly deserves the Newberry sticker that I will remind them to put on when I return it. The story was very different than I expected since I heard buzz about the book, but not about the story before I read it. I say it is a modern story about old things and their value. I enjoyed it very much. #89 #BookSpin #BFC22 #SuperSeptember #MGReads

Finished this audiobook this morning. I enjoyed it as it went along. There were amusing things happening…lalala…then there was the wrap-up. It wasn‘t the end, but close to the end, and it was hilarious. So glad I listened to this one. #88 #BookSpin #BFC22

Finished Uprooted by Naomi Novik. What a storyteller she is! This audiobook was pretty long. There were lots of battles and lots of magic! I could see it playing out in my head. I love when that happens. #87 #BookSpin #AlmostAChunksterChallenge #BFC22 #2022AUTHORAMONTH

Off to a great start with September #BFC22! Yesterday I completed my workout and got to page 250 of A Tale For The Time Being!

I have a fairly long train ride this evening so I plan to read more then and I'll fit my workout in on my lunch😊

An #audiowalk feels different on vacation. The views in Honolulu are surprising-you turn down the next block and find a view like this! #BFC22 @wanderinglynn #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

I have to work some today, after an already really long week, but at least I got my swim in early and had the pool all to myself! A few minutes of trading to reward myself, then back to the grind. #BFC22 #goals #AwesomeAugust #readathon @wanderinglynn @Andrew65

Finally finished the Raven Cycle series! Will Patton is an amazing narrator. His voice is soft when it needs to be and frightening when called for. Lots of exciting and terrifying happenings in this one. So glad to wrap up the series! Yay! #78 #BookSpin #16 #BFC22 #SERIES2022 #20in4

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I enjoyed this series. It didn't end the way I personally would have made it end (lol) but it was still pretty satisfying. 2mo

Another book done in the Her Royal Spyness Mysteries series by Rhys Bowen. These are such great palate cleansers! They are entertaining, funny and the narrators are spot on. I especially enjoy when Darcy pops in to save the day. #78 #BookSpinBingo #1 #BFC22 #SERIES2022 #ReadMyRoom #JubilantJuly #Pantone2022
