When the younglings of Redwall are kidnapped by a gang of vermin, it‘s up to Buckler, a Blademaster of the Long Patrol to rescue.

This still had everything I loved from reading Redwall as a child. Charming characters, fantastic feasts, epic battles to protect the vulnerable. It was like coming home. But, I‘m also a lot more aware of the slow plot, uneven pacing, & the black & white nature of good & evil with the animal species. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

LazyLibrary I adored the Redwall books and always say I am going to go back and finish the ones I didn‘t read! This book was one of them. 16h
BookmarkTavern @LazyLibrary I‘ve had this one and The Rogue Crew on my bookshelf for a few years now. I‘ve been reluctant to start them, because there will be no more Redwall after. But I figured I can always do a reread eventually. ❤️ 16h

Fr3NcHtOaSt I have a special place with the Redwall series, it helped me through a tough phase when I was younger and I hold it dear to me and love it still to this day. 11h

Right before the Fall Festival, the mayor of Larkspur is found dead. With that, a rash of vandalism, & a standoffish reporter, Greta must hurry to solve the mystery before things escalate.

Disappointing. I really wanted more development with the relationships, & that didn‘t really happen. Greta felt inconsistent from what she said & what she did. & the solve of mystery felt like it got solved off page. Sweet setting, but that was it. 🌕🌕🌗🌑🌑

Bk1 of #WinterGames & #20in4 #readathon was finished Sunday. Sorry I haven‘t posted till now, we‘ve had a bad start to December here. I have read a few books still. This NF is one I‘ve wanted to read for years, Watergate is fascinating. Written by the two journalists who persevered with the story even under pressure from government agencies who just wanted the incident to go away. Nixon & Trump have a lot in common! #TeamEvergreen #4866pts 👇

Andrew65 Sorry to hear that, sending best wishes ❤️ Have you seen the film? 3d
Bookwormjillk I hope December gets better! 3d

Lizpixie @andrew65 thanks lovely. It‘s been pretty crappy both healthwise & familywise, fingers crossed things change before Xmas🤞Yes, I love the movie! Just did a rewatch before listening to the audiobook. Those guys were real journalists, backed up by a reputable paper that actually had their backs. Very impressed by them, totally disgusted with Nixon & his gang of merry hatchet men #IAmNotACrook✌️ 3d
Lizpixie @Bookwormjillk thank you! I hope so too❤️ @CatLass007 oh he was dragged out kicking & screaming all the way, don‘t worry. AFTER throwing everyone who helped, conspired & believed in him under the bus first. He‘s just lucky that some of the international leaders he clandestinely recorded didn‘t retaliate honestly. I highly recommend reading this, what he (almost)got away with is insane! 3d
CatLass007 I remember watching him give his resignation speech live on television. I know he would like to have stayed in power but he wasn‘t completely tone deaf about what would happen if he didn‘t resign. He thought he could get away with the things he did but he eventually realized that resigning was the best thing for him. I‘m sure he was given guarantees that Gerald Ford would pardon him. 3d
Lizpixie @Bookwormjillk thanks for the recce! Another book on my overstuffed TBR 🫣It sounds brilliant.👍 3d
Lizpixie @CatLass007 I was only two years old when this happened so no firsthand memories for me! But even here in Australia, Nixon was taught in school & documentaries were on tv plus the fabulous movie with Redford & Hoffman. Watergate has always been a moment in history that fascinated me but even so this book has a lot of behind the scenes bad behaviour that was new. The recent mini series Gaslit with Julia Roberts I highly recommend as well👍 3d
dabbe I have read this numerous times, and I still learn something new every time I read it! 🤩😍😃 3d
BookmarkTavern Sounds fascinating! 👍🏻 3d

The Twelve Days of Murder | Andreina Cordani

This is my 2nd book of both #WinterGames and of the #20in4 #Readathon #CandyCaneCrushers. I finished it last night. I didn't like any of the characters, and while that might have been the point, it wasn't fun in the “Knives Out“ sort of way that I was hoping for. Also, I had difficulty keeping track of everyone and it probably would've been easier to do that had I read the book in print instead of audio.

Although this book wasn‘t in my #20in4 #readathon plan, I needed so@Ethi g quick, light & fun & so I finished it. This is Book 3 in the Charming Cove mystery series & follows 2 new characters Aria (witch) & Callan (broody werewolf) with the MCs of the previous books making appearances. It‘s a typical paranormal rom-com but sometimes that‘s what I need. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I‘m on board for more of Charming Cove. Tagging book 1 ⬇️

Second book in the Midsolar Murders series.

The station is acting up. Mallory's connection to the Sundry hivemind is on the fritz. There are visitors from Earth, some of whom are from Mallory's past. And, of course, another murder occurs; and all visiting humans have a motive.
