The Velveteen Rabbit | Margery Williams

One of my favorite books as a young child. I'd want my parents to read it to me over and over again and always cried because the Boy and his rabbit were separated lol. Re-read to my youngest. Definitely a children's classic! #TMSkellington #WinterGames #TBRRead

Audio loan didn't come back until yesterday, which was perfect because I was able to finish this & have it count towards the #WinterGames! Glad I finally read it. Obscene, creepy, & will make you think of Christmas in a different light lol. Filled with kids & adults doing horrific things & showcases a frightening innocence that does not discern evil from fun. Kate Mulgrew's narration really brought this to life. #HolidayRead #TMSkellington 4⭐️s

lele1432 Using the non-movie tie-in cover as my #WinterReadsBingo for Ugly Cover lol. #PopSugarReadingChallenge #PopSugar2019 #Pop19 Read in season it‘s set it (edited) 4d

Missed the post office yesterday before leaving town, so this will be sent to @rachelm first thing in the morning!

Wholly different from what I was expecting, this short novel proved to be an important work in its own right. Its strength was the use of surrealism to convey the truths & nuances of present-day issues on the topic of immigration; bridging cultures & languages. The translator's note was very informative! 4⭐️s #LMPBC #Round7 #GroupI

Carolyn11215 Sounds amazing! Can‘t wait to read it! 5d
lele1432 @Carolyn11215 I hope you enjoy it! It took some getting used to, and as the translator notes at the end, it's non-standard and colloquial. And just a heads up, there are no quotations used. But there came a point when everything "clicked" and I was like, okay, I get what the author's doing with this and the themes he's conveying. Can't wait to hear your thoughts! 5d
rachelm Exciting! I‘ll keep my eyes open for it! 5d

2 new ones to start today, though I‘m working a 9 hour shift so not sure what start I‘ll make! 🤦‍♀️
The Trollope is for #pop19 a reimagined classic, and has been on my #tbr forever! Hope I like it as much as Eligible, the only other one I‘ve read from the Austen Project...
Erotic Stories is for a bookclub next week... and is narrated by Meera Syal who I love 😊👍🎧💕

Well, this was an interesting concept, but not the greatest execution. The MC, Simon, really got on my nerves, I actually wish the book had been written from Kat‘s POV. I don‘t think I will be reading the other books in the series.

It is my FINAL ✔️ for #popsugar2019! 🎉🎉 This fills the #LitRPG prompt. Also #BBRC #TeenAngst : not appropriate for MG (violence)

A pretty insightful history of how the last shipment of slaves landed in the U.S. #TIL when these slaves were freed and denied the option to go back to Africa, they banded together, worked hard and saved their money to be able to purchase land from their previous slave owner, who wouldn't even give them a discount. 4⭐️s #NFNov #PopSugarReadingChallenge #PopSugar2019 #Pop19 #PublishedPosthumously

Life is too short to read Veronica Roth.

I do love the title and the cover, though!

Scochrane26 I‘ve wondered if the books she‘s written after the divergent series are good. She lost me with Allegiant, I was unhappy with most of that book. 2w
Texreader I‘m not fond of her writing either even though I liked the story told in the Divergent series. It‘s just that her writing, to be blunt, is poor. 2w
LibrarianRyan @Scochrane26 Divergent book 1 was so good, but it's like the early success has gone to her head, because everything after that just keeps going downhill. I have this but still havn't read it. 2w
ferskner @Scochrane26 @Texreader @LibrarianRyan totally! I'm still mad that I wasted a week if my life on the Divergent series. I think she has good ideas and then doesn't know what to do with them. She does have an adult novel coming out soon, and I'm curious to know if that improves anything. 2w

Taylor Jenkins Reid writes the most compelling books in the world. Her hooks are just so good! Plus, this luscious cover makes me go 🤩

Tamra I really expected not to like this and I was in for a delightful surprise. 😁 2w
mom2bugnbee She's become a must read author for me. And I didn't think about this one having a wedding - add this to my #pop19 at as well! 😁 2w
ferskner @mom2bugnbee it does, right? I'm not making that up? 2w

mom2bugnbee No, it definitely does. After all, she gets married seven times! 😂 2w
ferskner @mom2bugnbee hahaha true! I think we only see one wedding though, right? 2w
mom2bugnbee I think you're right. ☺ 2w
