The Scorpio Races | Maggie Stiefvater
post image

Book 20 of #MountTBR- I may have to check out Stiefvater‘s other books as I loved this one. I love Puck. She is a feisty and strong character. It had just the right amount of a romance and no love triangle!

#UnderdogHero - The Scorpio Races
#FeaturesaHoliday - A Redbird Christmas
#MCover70yearsold - Driving Miss Daisy
#Newin2018 - The Greatest Love Story Ever Told
#MCwithInvisibleIllness - Talking to the Dead

This is my final book for #booked2018 ! Happy to say that it was also from the mountainous #TBR pile! This is Book 3 of a series based on the real life of sisters who lived in New Jersey in the early 1900‘s. Miss Constance Kopp became somewhat a celebrity due to the fact that a female assistant sheriff, who carried a gun and wore a gold star was quite unusual for the period! Despite the lack of respect that she faced, Constance was a #underdoghero

BarbaraTheBibliophage Love it—I need to read the last two!! 13mo
Cinfhen Yay!!!! You did it!!!!!! Congrats and happy healthy 2019 13mo

Reading this book which has been sitting on my shelves for some time for my last #booked2018 selection. A few Litsy friends chose Miss Kopp‘s books for #underdoghero. Happy to find this on my #TBR !

JanuarieTimewalker13 Oooh, I would love to see that sweet painting behind the book! 13mo
DivineDiana @JanuarieTimewalker13 We lost our dear bunny last year. My husband and I went to fundraiser in her honor and painted her portrait. 13mo

I never read this classic nor watched the movies, which isn‘t a surprise because I don‘t really gravitate towards westerns. But, I‘m so glad I read this because I loved it! It‘s beautiful, straightforward storytelling. And I loved the voice of Mattie Ross. Highly recommend.


nelehelen @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft I read this for the “Underdog Hero” for the young MC and Rooster character (who seemed unlikely to show kindness and integrity). Do you guys think it would work?? (edited) 13mo
Cinfhen Great choice and AWESOME BOOK 🤠 13mo
Cinfhen Mattie was definitely an #UnderdogHero 💕🙌🏻 13mo
nelehelen @Cinfhen i love it when i discover books that are so good in genres i would never read! All thanks to awesome reading challenges like the ones you guys put together!! 🙌🏼👍🏼 13mo
Cinfhen Thanks!!! I feel like I can‘t get any credit for this one... you just discovered the perfect book on your own.... well done ❤️ 13mo

Murder as a Fine Art | David Morrell
post image

My final quarter of #booked2018 is complete. Here‘s what I read—

#newin2018 Heartland
#mcwithaninvisibleillness Reasons to Stay Alive
#spooky The Elementals
#underdoghero Murder as a Fine Art
#MCover70 Three Things About Elsie
#featuresaholiday Better Not Cry

vivastory I just checked out Murder As A Fine Art. Your review has me even more excited for it. 14mo
Reviewsbylola It was really good!! The author wrote in his afterword that he immersed himself in 1854 Victorian London for two years in preparation for writing this book and it clearly showed. He went above and beyond by including a lot of details about the period. @vivastory (edited) 14mo
vivastory That sounds exactly what I was looking for! I'm looking for a new historical mystery series after I read the final book in MJ Carter's series 14mo

Murder as a Fine Art | David Morrell
post image

This book is replete with #underdoghero(es). Thomas de Quincey is first and foremost as he races to discover who is recreating the brutal, decades old Ratcliff Highway murders in Victorian London.

De Quincey is best known for his memoir Confessions of an English Opium Eater, which I have actually read but of which I have little recollection. This was an immersive, fast paced historical thriller.

And with that, I‘ve completed #booked2018.

Tamra Sounds good! 14mo
Melissa_J I liked this one! Haven‘t read the others in the series yet though. 14mo
Cinfhen Way to go!!! Book challenger slayer 🙌🏻💕 14mo
Megabooks WTG! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 14mo

I finally found a book for #underdoghero @Cinfhen . It‘s fantastic so far. My reading buddy prefers lounging on the coffee table as I read. 🤪

PS I swear we don‘t beat her or anything. She just always has a super guilty look on her face. 😂

AlaMich Does she wear her little fleece in the house or did she just come back from a walk? 🐶❤️ 14mo
Reviewsbylola She pretty much wears it 24/7. 😂 @AlaMich 14mo

The Book Thief | Markus Zusak
post image

I loved The Book Thief. It was beautifully written and told by Death, who was a fantastic narrator. Although I will warn those who haven't read it yet kleenex will be needed 💙
Also has anyone seen the movie? How does it compare with the book?
#MonthofZusak @EadieB @MinDea
#booked2018 #UnderdogHero @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen

jdiehr The movie is worth watching but, of course, doesn't come close to the awesomeness of the book - which happens to be my all time favorite 14mo
4thhouseontheleft I needed so many tissues when I read this book. 😭😭 14mo
Cinfhen Loved the book and the movie!!!!!Watched the movie with my son last year....we both needed tissues 😭😭 14mo

I need a book that fits #UnderdogHero for #Booked2018. For those who have read it, would the tagged book work? It‘s on my shelves and would also count toward #MountTBR. 🤞🏻

LorieL I think this would apply to #underdoghero for sure! 14mo
CrowCAH Definitely works for that category! I LOVED this book; still lives with me!!! 14mo
Bookzombie @LorieL @CrowCAH Thank you both! ❤️ 14mo
