The Roundhill | Dick King-Smith, Sian Bailey
post image

Dick King-Smith, most famous for his book Babe the Gallant Pig, was an incredibly prolific author of 75-110pg-long children's books. I own a BUNCH of them, many unread. He's a bit hit or miss - someone who has written this many books pretty much as to be - but some of them are such wins that it's worth the effort of sifting through them. This one was right in the middle. I liked the concept, but the story didn't really go anywhere. I also didn't ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) like the way Evan treated his cousin, and I felt bad for old-Evan who says he wants to believe in God but can't. There's a weird sadness to this book that just didn't work for me. But it was only 84 pages long, so it wasn't that long of an investment - but not a King-Smith book I'll probably pick up again.

Short and an easy read, filled with Lawson's delightful illustrations. I clearly remember watching the Disney version of this story. According to this biography of Benjamin Franklin, many of that man's inventions and diplomatic decisions were made with the aid of this book's narrator - Amos the mouse, who spent much of his time living in Ben's hat. Obviously ridiculous but still a great deal of fun. I especially enjoyed when other famous ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) historical people had mice of their own! I really enjoy Lawson's writing and illustrations, and it was a pleasure to read this 1951 edition that I picked up almost 20 years ago.

Indian Island Mystery | Jane, Mary C Jane
post image

Final review for this morning... so I've been stuck on my own #BookChain challenge because I needed to read a book whose title started with the next letter in the alphabet from my last book's title, i.e. the letter I. None of my upcoming book start with an I so I turned to my own shelves to see if I could find a quick read - and came across this 1965 MG read. Set in Maine near the Penobscot Indian Island Reservation, which I didn't even know ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) existed, the story is about two siblings who haven't been living in the area very long and who have befriended some of the Native American children living on the reservation. The story touches lightly on being friends even if someone doesn't look or live like you, and the main character concludes by realizing that everyone is different from everyone, and that's part of what makes life so interesting. The mystery itself is simple but ⬇ 2w
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) but fun, and I was a bit mind-blown that their parents just let these two kids take the bus to Bangor and back on their own to see if they could find a man that none of them actually know very well...!!!

This one isn't going to be some kind of forever classic, but it's a typical fun little MG mystery from the era, and since I purchased it at a booksale back in 1997, I suppose it's about time I read it 😂

Clwojick I‘m stuck too! Next up is Y for me, but non of my Blake Pierce books start with a Y, so it‘ll have to wait until next week. 🫣😂 2w
Andrew65 Great progress 👏👏👏 2w
Clare-Dragonfly How do you even know what year you bought this?! 2w
TheAromaofBooks @Clare-Dragonfly - I'm pretty obsessive about writing on flyleafs when I purchase books, so this one has its place of origin in my high school scrawl 😂 2w
MittenGirlPeach I love her books! I own a number of them from childhood and I‘ve collected others in used bookstores. They‘re “of a time” for sure, but they do feature stronger roles for girls than was the norm when written. 2w
TheAromaofBooks @MittenGirlPeach - Yes!! I also have several of her books from old booksales and whatnot. I really enjoy them and appreciate the way that she does weave in lessons about not judging people by how they look or what you've heard about “their kind.“ They are from their era, but I also think she was doing her best to look forward when she wrote them. 1w

I read Living With Color by this author a couple years ago and absolutely LOVED it! Like, it changed the way I look at color and my house and interior design in general. Sadly, though, her earlier book, Living With Pattern, just strike the same chord for me. There is some good and interesting information here, but nothing that made me grab my husband and start sharing stuff with him, which is always how I judge how interesting my nonfiction ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) reads are 😂 In some ways, I just think Pattern is harder to connect with than Color anyway - Pattern encompasses so many different things (i.e. texture, furniture placement, structure, color, fabric, etc etc) that it's harder to really grasp and use (for me). Like I said, a perfectly interesting read, but it didn't hit me like Living With Color did.

However, another gorgeous book - I can't resist sprayed edges!!!
Clwojick Great match! 3w

This one was a soft pick for me. It started strong. Love the concept and characters, especially the narrator. However, the ending felt a little scrambled to me, and for a little more gruesome than I anticipated. Still, it was a solid read and I will definitely pick up the sequel due to be published this summer!! Great #LMPBC pick, and one that has been on my TBR for years!!

This one has been picked for the #TrappedonanIsland more months than once, including this one, so I decided it was time to finally read it!! It's been on my shelf since it was gifted to me by @Chrissyreadit back in August 2020!!

This was a fun enemies-to-lovers/fake relationship read, although I did get a lot of secondhand stress when various lies were being enacted! I really loved the banter between these two characters, and felt like most of ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) the “unlikely“ scenarios felt like they could have happened, if that makes sense. I felt like Olive was a little harsh at times, but that's also because we spend the entire book in her head, so there's that.

Overall, a fun and fluffy read!!

Book pictured with an adorable but slightly confused Waylon 😂

TheAromaofBooks I did get a little frustrated with Olive - she and Ethan have a big argument about Ethan's brother and she gets SO offended that Ethan sides with his brother and not her. I get that, I do, and I didn't expect her to cave in and pretend like nothing was wrong. However, when the truth is out and Ethan apologizes... I felt like that was the time Olive should have admitted to herself that she would have acted the same if he had said something about ⬇ 3w
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) about her sister, but instead she just completely blows him off. Part of a relationship is not just being able to admit you're wrong, but being able to show grace to your partner when they admit that they were wrong, and there are multiple situations where Olive obviously has a problem with holding onto a grudge. It was a bit part of her personality that really grated on my nerves. 3w

Very Sincerely Yours | Kerry Winfrey
post image

I'm a bit of a sucker for Winfrey's books because she sets them in Ohio, and describes places around Columbus with warm affection. It's just so nice to see my lovely state being embraced instead of being the background from which the MC is fleeing! 😂 I had some minor issues with this one, like some inconsistencies with Everett's character, and the “message“ that everyone has a THING that is their PASSION and if you can find that ONE THING ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) everything else falls into place. I just... I think contentment is something you choose, not something that happens because of your circumstances. Following passions can be great, but it's also just not for everyone. Stepping out of your comfort zone is fine, but it's also exhausting and I don't think you actually do need to force yourself to do it every day. But... this is a fluffy romcom, and in that light, this one was a lot of fun. 4w

A soft pick for me, this one is a slow burn yet has weirdly addictive writing. As a child, Olivia was swept into her town's drainage system while sleepwalking, yet managed to survive three days and was rescued, becoming a national story in the process. Years of being harassed and judged (she and her mother received a lot of money as a result of the rescue) has led her to change her name and try to escape the pressure of the past. But as the 20th⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) anniversary approaches, Olivia is finding it harder to maintain her anonymity - especially when someone from her past appears in her front yard... murdered.

The whole sleepwalking thing was kind of creepy; it's so scary to think that you can just get up and wander around doing things and not know it. I can't imagine how terrifying it would be to wake up someplace different from where you went to sleep! This added just the right amount ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) of unreliability to Olivia's account. The reason that it stayed a soft pick for me is that while the ending was mostly satisfying, I felt like a lot of the secondary characters were just kind of left hanging. I wanted more resolution with some of the other people I had come to know throughout the story. Still, a solid read, and I can see myself reading another of Miranda's books if it comes my way. 4w
PuddleJumper Brilliant! 4w
Clwojick Way to go! 4w

Another fun 2023 challenge - check out @lauredhel 's page for more details!!

What 2023 reading challenges do you all plan to participate in? I've been setting up my journal for the year and am getting super excited!! This year I'm looking to continue #Roll100 with @PuddleJumper, #WickedWords with @AsYouWish, #TrappedonanIsland with @aperfectmjk, #NoShameReadathon with @Nessavamusic, #Booked2023 with @alisiakae @cinfhen & @barbarathebibliophage

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) plus several monthly buddy reads: #ChildrensClassicRead with @TheBookHippie, #AgathaChristieClubR2 with @ferskner, #PemberLittens and #LittensLoveRomance with @StayCurious, and #KindredSpiritBuddyReads with @BarbaraJean .

As always @Clwojick has several fun challenges going, including #ReadySetRead, #Pantone2023, #MonthlyMayhem, and #ReadtheRainbow.

And of course I'll be trying to #ReadtheUSA2023 and climbing #MtTBR as well as ⬇
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) my own #BookSpin challenge!! As you can see, I like tracking and organizing books as much as reading them. 😂 I have a few Storygraph challenges that I will just see if I happen to read books that fit the prompts, like #TheQuidditchCup #ReadingRoyalty2023 #PrioritizeYourShelf and the #VintageCoverScavengerHunt

Let me know if you have any other challenges because I obviously love them! 😁 Looking forward to another fabulous year!!!

BookSpinBingo | Untitled
post image

Hey, friends!! I am planning to take the #BookSpin and #BookSpinBingo challenges into 2023 and would be thrilled if you would like to join me!!! (NOTE: That thing that looks like a pizza is supposed to be a spinner 😂) The challenge is going to remain basically the same as it has in 2022. I will again be asking everyone to track their own BookSpin/DoubleSpin reads for the giveaway entries - if anyone has any suggestions for improving the form or ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) making it easier to use, please let me know!! In 2023 I will NOT be tagging people separately for Bingo. Instead, I will do like I have done the last couple of months where I tag everyone for the BookSpin post, and then anyone who wishes to participate in Bingo will know that that also means the Bingo board as been posted as well, and they can find it on their own lol I am getting lazy in my old age!! ⬇ 2mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) If you are new to the challenge and want to know what it is all about, here is a link to the details about how it works - https://thearomaofbooks.wordpress.com/bookspin-bookspinbingo-litsy-challenge/ - and I am always available for questions by commenting on any of my posts or emailing me at itsthegoodlife15 at gmail. ⬇ (edited) 2mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) To sign up for 2023, all you need to do is comment below and let me know you want to be on the tag list. THIS IS A BRAND NEW TAG LIST AND YOU WILL ONLY BE ON IT IF YOU COMMENT BELOW!! This is my way of cleaning up my old tag list so that I‘m no longer tagging people who aren‘t interested or who aren‘t active on Litsy anymore. ⬇ (edited) 2mo

tokorowilliamwallace Tracking for giveaway entries is too much for me, but I'd still like to be tagged to at least hope it'll motivate me and my reading moods and my capacity for continued momentum. 1mo

Gissy Do I have to access the 2023 form now or Do I need to wait until the end December? 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @Gissy - I haven't posted the 2023 form yet, so the 2022 form is the only one available. I'm going to wait until I close the 2022 entries before opening the 2023 form to try and avoid confusion since they are going to look pretty much exactly alike 😂 1mo
smallthings I would like to join in :) 1mo
Gissy @TheAromaofBooks Yes, that works perfectly 🤗 1mo
VeganCleopatra Sorry for the late comment, I would like to be included please! Did I miss a post with a link to the 2023 Google Form? I looked but did not see it. Also, do I need to include my address on the 2022 form or can I wait to see if I win? Thanks! 1mo
kimmypete1 Include me please! 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @VeganCleopatra - I haven't linked the 2023 form yet as I wanted to close the 2022 form first to help keep people from getting confused with multiple links going around!! I was having people include their addresses so that I know who wants to actually be counted for the giveaway and who is just using the form for their own records. But if you want, instead of your address, please just put in something like 'contact me if I win' so I know you want⬇ 1mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) to be included for the giveaway!! The 2023 form will be posted on the 2nd when I announce January's numbers. 1mo
SheReadsAndWrites I would love to be a part of the Bookspin bingo for 2023 but don't need to be part of a giveaway-I just want to engage more on Litsy and get motivated to read more this year. 🤓 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @SheReadsAndWrites - The giveaway is 100% optional!! I have also set the form up so that people can use it to track their BookSpin reads without submitting personal info for the giveaway, so you are free to use the form or not - whatever system works best for you!! 1mo
VeganCleopatra Thank you! As always, appreciate all your effort and responses! 1mo
