If you are allergic to a thing, it is best not to put that thing in your mouth, particularly if the thing is cats.

Centique @ClairesReads if you come to Auckland Claire, it‘s at the top of Pitt Street. The man said he had an upstairs filled with vintage books he hadn‘t sorted yet - I will have to go back! 2d

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.

Decided to revisit this book before I read Treacle Man which was short listed for the Booker last year.
This edition made interesting for me with a postscript by the author. I also watched a bit of the 1969 tv series which the author wrote and was filmed in the valley he based his book on. I enjoyed reading this book again.

batsy One of my favourites! Love the photo 🦉 4d

Waiting is one of life's hardships. It is hard enough to wait for chocolate cream pie while burnt roast beef is still on your plate. It is plenty difficult to wait for Halloween when the tedious month of September is still ahead of you. But to wait for one's adopted uncle to come home while a greedy and violent man is upstairs was one of the worst waits the Baudelaires had ever experienced.

Somehow I‘ve never read this as a kid. It was fun to read about the children‘s wishes and their misadventures, although they are many stereotypes in the story to be frowned upon. It‘s true of the saying ‘be careful what you wish for‘. Low Pick for me.

Finished this up tonight and what a delightful start to a new series! I loved the magical and quirky world of Nevermoor. These characters were so fun and the mystery surrounding Morrigan was engaging to follow. Thanks for the #ALSpine rec @shortsarahrose - I felt like I was reading Harry Potter again for the first time and can't wait to continue the adventure 😊
