It‘s a little later than usual but I finally got my November wrap up video up! I‘m excited to talk with you about the books I finished last month: https://youtu.be/1tCHRTxp5FU

EadieB @Butterflyamore Sad to hear you didn‘t like The Other Woman as I have the ARC too however, I have read her Paula Maguire series and found the books very well written. I am interested in reading Darling Rose Gold, The Cheerleaders and Trace of Evil from your reviews. I‘ve read 13 from November but did not read any NF. My favorite reads are Whitethorn Woods by Maeve Binchy, The Third Twin and Night Over Water by Ken Follett - all 5 stars from me. 2d
EadieB @Butterflyamore The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica is a psychological thriller that I know you will love! It was hard to put down, suspects galore, edge of your seat surprise ending. So check that one out! Really good! I have to listen to your movie YouTube as I was traveling home from Mexico when I got it the other day. Your tag today has reminded me to do that so I‘ll be back to you after I finish it. 2d
Butterflyamore @EadieB I have been hearing lots of great things about The Other Mrs. I definitely want to read it! I‘ll probably wait until it comes out, as I‘m a little overwhelmed with ARCs right now and want to be able to read some of my other books, too. I did see one review state that they couldn‘t believe that the same mind that wrote the Paula Maguire series wrote The Other Wife. Maybe I‘ll reconsider my stance on not reading another one of her books. 2d
EadieB @Butterflyamore I would definitely check out her Paula Maguire books! 2d

I deviated from the bookworm path on BookTube and made a video about some of my favorite underrated movies because I feel they deserve their time to shine! https://youtu.be/9o73j9AKam8

EadieB @Butterflyamore I don‘t really watch a lot of movies. I usually ask my daughter or my husband if they have seen any good movies and then I will watch them. That‘s why I love your list as they all sound good to me and I do want to watch them. I do watch a lot of movies between Christmas and New Years as my daughter comes home and I watch them with her. I actually have seen Finding Forrester and Gaslight and enjoyed them both. 2d
EadieB @Butterflyamore Charles Boyer is French so you really don‘t pronounce the er in his name. It sounds like Boy-yeah. lol I asked my husband for a movie he thinks is underrated and he said Medicine Man which stars Sean Connery. I just recently saw Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and really enjoyed that. I‘ll have to ask my daughter and I‘ll let you know what she thinks. 2d

EadieB @ Butterflyamore My daughter likes a lot of classic films such as: Two For the Road, The Great Gatsby plus other Bax Luhrman films, Funny Girl, Pretty in Pink, Charade, How To Steal a Million, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, American Graffiti, Bright Star about John Keats, Meet Me in Saint Louis, Now, Voyager with Bette Davis. Different strokes for different folks! lol 2d
Butterflyamore @EadieB I‘ve seen Bright Star and I liked it. I‘ll have to look up Medicine Man. I‘ll try to remember that about Charles Boyer‘s name! 2d
EadieB @Butterflyamore He's a very old-time actor (40's) and way before your time. My dad used to watch those old-time movies and now my daughter seems to be following him 2d

In the beginning of 2019, I decided to do a 52 week (52 prompts) reading challenge. This was one of the decisions I‘ve regretted the most in life. 😂 Despite my regret, I did learn several things about books outside of my comfort zone and my reading preferences. You can see my BookTube video about this here: https://youtu.be/JsLeXmgwut4

Freespirit I'm always reluctant to lock myself in to my future reading. I like to be spontaneous with it! 1w
RachelO Sounds like you got loads out of it, despite regretting it! I‘m deliberately trying to step away from (most) challenges next year, because I do get stressed by them and find myself wanting to read anything but. But I really have enjoyed reading outside my comfort zone as well. 52 prompts though 😬- that‘s Way Too Much! 1w

Butterflyamore @RachelO If I‘m ever bold (or foolish) enough to do another challenge, it will definitely be one with significantly fewer prompts! But I‘m with you on staying away from challenges next year. I just want a year devoted simply to the joy of reading! 1w
Butterflyamore @Freespirit Very wise! Our hobby should make us happy - not feel like a chore! 1w
EadieB @Butterflyamore I find challenges hard too as I am a mood reader! 1w

I love any opportunity that allows me to talk about the books that meant so much to me as a kid so I could not resist doing the Childhood Book Tag on BookTube: https://youtu.be/60RTI6TBaYg

EadieB @Butterflyamore - I grew up in the 50's so I really don't remember my parents reading to us. There were 4 kids in my family and I am the 3rd. I had 2 older brothers and 1 younger sister. My dad was a very big reader and he took me to the main branch of the Philadelphia library weekly. He was a big mystery reader and he used to shop at thrift stores in center city Philly and he would bring me home books. I remember reading Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, 3w
EadieB Judy Bolton etc. Beverly Cleary was famous then too. But I did most of my reading on my own. My daughters are probably around your age. Oldest just turned 44 and my younger daughter is 37. My husband and I used to read to them. A sesame street book about the monster stealing the jelly beans was my oldest daughter's favorite because my husband would change his voice and speak like a monster. They read a lot of Judy Blume, Charlotte's Web, Ramona. 3w

EadieB My oldest daughter is a big reader today but my younger daughter loves to read but has no time as she has 3 small children and she is a veterinarian. She reads to her kids all the time. Her 6 year old is reading a few years ahead. My oldest daughter has an autistic 12 year old and she reads vey well also. She loves to read the names of the stores in the shopping centers in Charlottesville and can tell you what shopping center you need to go to. 3w
EadieB My favorite genre today is still mystery and was influenced by my father buying me mystery books. I like Historical Mystery, Fiction, Memoirs and Biographies and also True Crime. I don't like dog-earring and I do find myself mouthing words which slows done my reading so I try to stop myself from doing that. My oldest daughter when she was 2 was able to tell you the name of the stores from their logos. My husband said I took her shopping too much. 3w
Butterflyamore @EadieB That‘s really interesting that you daughter is a veterinarian. I dreamed of being a vet as a kid but my allergies and asthma prohibited me from pursuing it. It‘s probably all for best because I don‘t even know how vets handle it emotionally. Although my parents were readers, too, I don‘t really remember them reading to us, with the exception of my dad reading The Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve every year. I was fortunate to have 3w
Butterflyamore @EadieB all of the books and records and records with stories before school and then lots of teachers who read to the class! I did grow to love mysteries pretty early on but I can‘t remember what I read before the age of 12. I do remember Christoper Pike and Lois Duncan being favorites just as I was entering my teen years. I still love a good mystery! Yes, I am close in age to your daughters! Just a year younger than your oldest! 3w
Butterflyamore @EadieB Oh, and I am also from a family of 4 kids. But it was all girls and I am the youngest! 3w
EadieB @Butterflyamore My daughter came home the first time she had to put a cat to sleep and she was crying all night. She said it was so sad. I was really worried if she would continue but she just cries along with the owners. Her fellow vets came to her house to help her put her dog to sleep a few years ago and they all cried together. She put our cat to sleep on our dining room table and took it to work to freeze until it could be cremated. 3w
Butterflyamore @EadieB Just reading this made me teary eyed. When the vet told me Elliot needed to be put to sleep back in September, I could see her angst. Her authentic compassion really meant a lot to me. 3w
EadieB @Butterflyamore Some vets are not as caring but where my daughter works they are adding on to the building as they are getting on average 100 new patients a month. She just went to Florida for a course in acupuncture. (edited) 3w

Do you form strong attachments to book characters? I have a few that I especially adore and I really want to talk about them with you! Check out my book character video on BookTube! https://youtu.be/uDMp6eaiiGg

EadieB @Butterflyamore I've read from your pile Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend and Where The Crawdads Sing. I agree that Budo and Kya are special people and I did want things to turn out well for them. I read a lot of mystery thrillers and I do get attached to different characters such as; Rebus from Ian Rankin's books, Inspector Banks from Peter Robinson's books, Inspector McLean from James Oswald's books and Sean Duffy from Adrian McKinty. (edited) 3w
Butterflyamore @EadieB I imagine it‘s especially easy to get attached to main characters from series reads since you spend so much time with them! I am so happy that you‘ve read Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend, as I rarely bump into people who have. 3w
