I had watched the movie but never read the book. But i enjoyed reading this crazy story. And it was impossible not to eat a lot of chocolate while reading it 😋. I also feel this would be a good gift to unruly children, after seeing what happens to them in the book 😈😁

This is a meh for me. I think Dahl‘s kids stories are so much stronger than his adult ones.

This was one of his only audiobooks available from my library with no wait. Read for #AuthorAMonth.

ValerieAndBooks Trying to catch up on Litsy! It‘s going to be a busy month! But I‘ve been managing to read this collection of his short stories on the treadmill 1d

The Witches | Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake

This was a thoroughly entertaining book. Evil witches hatch out a plan to destroy all children in the world and one little boy interrupts their plan.

November was a really good month. I loved reading a bunch of Neil Gaiman books for #AuthoraMonth my favorite was Neverwhere. I also loved Aristotle and Dante. Besides those listed above I also read three Hellraiser graphic novels and twelve kid books for #BBRC 🍁

I think this, #Booked2020, and my Goodreads goal are going to be my only challenges next year. I will also participate as much as I can in #authoramonth .

From @MrBook :
It‘s simple: Every month read a book based on that month‘s theme. Share the book you read on the 29th of each month (Feb. has 29 in 2020 😆) with the #ReadWithMrBook and that month‘s hashtags—for example, January‘s is #1WordTitle.

HotMessJess Oooh can we pick our own themes too?! 5d
Bookzombie @HotMessJess For @MrBook ‘s challenge? I don‘t think so. 5d
HotMessJess @Bookzombie I clearly need to read instructions better hahaha 5d

2019‘s final #AuthorAMonth is Roald Dahl! Fun, fast reads, so it‘s really still anyone‘s game.

The winner of this year‘s AAM bookish Box will be whomever has read the most books over the year by AAM authors by midnight Dec 15th.

Anyone have favorite Dahl to recommend? Do you have your Dahls chosen yet?

Riveted_Reader_Melissa One I have read in a long time.... 5d
Bookzombie I loved Matilda. I listened to it on audio. (edited) 5d
Andrew65 Matilda my absolute favourite. Especially scenes with Miss Trunchbull and Matilda in. Great to read to a class of children! @Bookzombie Also love The Witches. (edited) 5d

Bookzombie @Soubhiville I have read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but maybe I will reread on audio. 🙂 5d
erzascarletbookgasm Dahl has many twisted, only-for-adults novels that are really unexpected and full of twists! Switch Bitch, Kiss Kiss, Someone Like You, Ghosts Stories. 5d
LibrarianRyan ohhhhhh. so tempting. So much I have to dooooooo 5d
Soubhiville @erzascarletbookgasm so many people do t know about his adult books. They are strange, but what else can you expect from Dahl! 4d

This was by far the most prolific #AuthorAMonth so far, with over 30 readings of Gaiman books! (I feel proud! 💗🤗)
@BookwormAHN is in the lead with 15 books read! (Gaiman really helped you out!)
In a close 2nd, it‘s @erzascarletbookgasm with 13 read so far.
3rd is currently held by @ValerieAndBooks with 10.

Today starts Roald Dahl, another quick, fun reads author. I can‘t wait to see who wins the bookish box the 15th!

Bklover I will never manage that many books in a month, but I did check out two Dahls from the library. This will be fun. 💕 5d
Andrew65 Thanks for the tag! Plenty of light reading ahead with Roald Dahl! I particularly recommend The Witches, the BFG and my favourite Matilda. Of course Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a true classic too! In my early days of teaching I remember reading George‘s Marvellous Medicine to a class and couldn‘t read for laughing! (edited) 5d

BookwormAHN I loved Gaiman month. @Andrew65 I just started The Witches. It is really good. 5d
tjwill I wish I had joined in on AAM sooner! I love Gaiman! I read two of his books this past month with my son—ones that are in our regular rotation. (Fortunately, the Milk and Chu‘s Day) 5d
LibrarianRyan yeahhhh. I've read his picture books and seen his movies. that counts right. I will admit I'm the only person I know who didn't like the Graveyard book. (edited) 5d

Here is the list you voted in for #AuthorAMonth2020!

I tried to arrange them so we start and end the year with light, quick reads so you can stack up numbers if you want. Scary stuff for Sept and Oct, and light for Nov because of the election.

I hope you are all excited! As always let me know if you‘d like to join or leave the tag list. I‘ll post rules again in January. In the meantime, feel free to join us for Dahl in December!

CoffeeNBooks Great list! I'm looking forward to it! 6d
Andrew65 This looks good, could you add me to the tag list please. Thanks for the work on pulling this together. 6d

Amiable How does it work? Do you read one book by the specific author each month, or do you just read that one author all month? (edited) 6d
Soubhiville @Amiable it‘s a no pressure and no commitment group. When you feel like it, read the author of the month and post a review. I keep track of who reads what on a spreadsheet. The person who has read the most qualifying books at the end of the year gets a bookish box from me. So you CAN treat it as a challenge if you want to. I read one book a month, some folks have dedicated all of their reading to the specified author for a month. It‘s Up to you! 6d
Amiable @Soubhiville No pressure? Perfect! Sign me up! 🙂 6d
TheAromaofBooks Thank you! There are a lot of authors here I haven't read yet, so I think this will be a fun way to step outside my comfort zone!! 6d
