#RedRoseSeptember #day9 #NeverForget The MC in this adult fantasy trilogy, Mia Corvere, is taught as a child to “Never Flinch, Never Fear & Never Forget” It‘s the mantra that drives her to become a Blade Of The Red Church, a gladiatii & the most famous assassin in Itreyan history, causing a path of destruction in the name of revenge that takes down the whole republic. This is my UK signed hardcover that came today, now I just need my US hardcover!
#AyUpAugust #Day9 #IPredictARiot In the year that this book covers, August 1969 to August 1970, there were a few riots, a lot of protests and a ton of arrests with a few deaths as well. People don‘t realise just how close America came to a full revolution, there was a lot of people very unhappy about Vietnam, about civil rights & the corruption of high up government officials. People power made a lot of changes happen in those days.
#AugustABC #Day9 #Innocence A pig named Wilbur may be one of the most innocent and sweet characters I‘ve ever had the pleasure to read. This was one of my favourite books growing up so of course it was one of the first middle grade books I bought for my granddaughter. Though I loved the character of Charlotte, she wasn‘t enough to overcome my arachnophobia unfortunately! If you haven‘t bought your little bookworms this book yet, do them a favour.
TNG 6.20 #TheChase: a cat and mouse game searching for clues to a message left in the galactic DNA, that aimed to explain (kinda lamely) why all Star Trek aliens are humanoids. It‘s fun but not as profound as it hoped it would be and features the 1st female Cardassian Gul (yé). The best parts are Picard and his mentor discussing archeology. It features my favorite ST prop of all time, the Kurlan naiskos.
#MarchIntoThe70s #Day9 #Barracuda
Vostok has went way off the rails into alternate dimensions, aliens, and worst of all lots and lots of math. But before it went all crazy, it was a really entertaining lost world creature book. Like when their small submarine, the barracuda, gets swallowed whole by a giant prehistoric eel.
