The Princess in Black: #1 | Shannon Hale, Dean Hale

Pickpick

A prim princess dons a disguise and fights monsters. Yes please! My 4-year-old and I loved it! The illustrations are so much fun and I loved the story of the fiery princess. The series is so much fun to read aloud. After reading these two I immediately wanted to find more of the books in the series.

Daisey These books are so much fun! I‘ve thoroughly enjoyed reading the series with my niece. 1d

I didn‘t really know what I was getting myself into but I read the second half of the book while at the hospital with my boyfriend who has cancer. This book touched my heart and needless to say I bawled. Amazing message. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

TheAromaofBooks I had no idea what this book was about when I picked it up, and ended up reading it when I was at the hospital with my mother-in-law who had cancer. It was a tough read, but probably the best book about grief/dealing with long-term illness I've ever read. 2d
TamTracy @TheAromaofBooks Yes! Exactly the same. ❤️ 2d
Gissy I loved this book! I'm speechless because going through that process is so hard! 😢 2d

TheAromaofBooks And I hope your boyfriend is beating his cancer!! Such a scary thing. 2d
TamTracy @TheAromaofBooks Yes thank you! The cancer is under control and being treated. It‘s this damn flu and pneumonia that are giving him hell. Thank you 😊 2d
TamTracy @Gissy Ugh it was. The real problem is that I wasn‘t prepared 😆. Need to do a little more research from now on 😬 2d
Gissy @TamTracy I wasn't neither😱then I was almost crying. It is beautiful and the illustrations are amazing. I need to watch the movie to see how was the adaptation. 1d

I realized I never shared a photo of my Christmas gift from my husband. He got me my very own library book trolly! He‘s pretty much the best ever. 😍📚

Das Labyrinth des Fauns | Cornelia Funke, Guillermo Del Toro

I only went into the bookshop to check if the book I‘ve ordered has arrived yet. I didn‘t mean to buy this. Just in and out. No looking around. Definitely not spending money as I have no book budget left for this month. It turns out, I have no self control either. 😇

Anna40 Oh no... temptation ... I would probably have done the same 😉 6d

I could not put this book down! If you are a fan of the show, adventuring or just a fan of Josh Gates, this book is a great look into how it started and what happens behind the scenes on his travels.

Like the book. Not your typical James Patterson book. If you like the Jester you will love this one.

The Monster of Elendhaven | Jennifer Giesbrecht

A monster. A murder. A plot for revenge. This is a twisted and horrific dark fantasy novella.

A quick but engrossing novella. Looking for more from this author.
3.5 🌟

Parts of this book made laugh and nearly cry. I wanted to rage and, other times, celebrate. Milicent‘s story—how men tried to erase her from Hollywood history—not only mirrors O‘Meara‘s trials within the entertainment industry today but women everywhere. It‘s a great book, and I can‘t wait to read O‘Meara‘s next book GIRLY DRINKS when it comes out.

Oh, wow! This really speaks to me. As someone whose parents once tried to tell my son behind my back “He‘s wasting his time” writing... Yeah, I get this. I share Mallory‘s anger for Milicent regarding this.

Love this caption Mallory O‘Meara gives this photograph. Throughout this book, she does a great job celebrating Milicent‘s beauty without making it all about her looks or judging her for the importance Milicent placed on this.
