Did anyone else get this a while back from audible? I think I loved it...but I don't know? Just finished and am feeling rather unsure....

This was an excellent read. It took me a while to finish reading it, but it was worth it. It was so exciting and the ending was truly great. I‘m so glad that I finally got to read it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was checking out my family tree on Ancestry (its been years since i worked on it!) and got excited when i found records for one of the ships my ancestors came to NZ on - the Roman Emperor in 1860. When i googled that i found one of the men onboard was Samuel Butler who wrote this book. So i get to read a few chapters about what the crossing was like for them! Thank you internet, youve been very helpful today ☺️

Love Poems | Editors of Canterbury Classics

This was a lovely collection of classic love poems!

The selection of authors was expected. It features classic love poets such as Shakespeare, Dickinson, and Byron. I‘m not that familiar with classic poetry (I read more modern poetry), so I cannot speak too much on the selection of poems.

As with almost all poetry collections, some poems stood out more than others.

The Corsican Brothers | Alexandre Dumas

Mehso-so

Yeah, I'm a bit meh on this Dumas book. I'm reading it for Twitch for Black History Month (Canada) because it's one of his shortest works. The trouble with this book is that it's a slow burn, with 13 long chapters of build up to all the action in the last 7 chapters. It's hard to get invested in the tragedy of Lucien and Louis. My viewers are enjoying it, surprisingly enough. It's the forgotten basis for a pile of SFF stories, too.

Faranae Also, I'm deeply regretting the accent I gave Lucien for reading aloud. I was tired and what I pulled out for his apparently strong Corsican accent (not given an eye dialect, but mentioned), was some sort of unholy merging of my Francophone aunt's manner and accent, and a vaguely Italian accent. It's become extremely hard to maintain over multiple streams and I kind of hate it. Fortunately, there's a couple Librivox recordings to choose from. 😅 4mo
willaful I would never be able to get through this without incessant quoting from “Start the Revolution Without Me.“ 😂 4mo
Faranae @willaful Better than the Cheech and Chong film. 😂 4mo
