That was a great murder mystery! Very Agatha Christie. I loved it, all of it!

5feet.of.fury I‘m planning to read this next month for #Scarathlon but mine says 2d
Deifio @5feet.of.fury that's a good choice for the #scarathlon but I wonder why they changed the title? Weird! 1d
5feet.of.fury @Deifio I looked it up, apparently the US has the extra 1/2 in the title 😂 7 wasn‘t enough. 1d
See All 7 Comments
Deifio @5feet.of.fury does the 1/2 make it seem more interesting? Did they run that past a test audience? I know a couple of other UK books that got their title completely changed for the US publication. Still seems weird to me... 1d
5feet.of.fury @Deifio it released in UK first and then released in US around the same time as 7 Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, so they were making it sound more distinct. 1d
Deifio @5feet.of.fury Aaaaah! That makes sense then 1d
5feet.of.fury @Deifio it does, at first I could only find the guardian saying “Americans die more” 🤣 and was very confused. 1d

Reading and in between I'm knitting. First sock is finished! Yeah, first pair of self knit socks!

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Pretty 🧡💜 2w
ravenlee Warning: sock knitting is insanely addictive! 2w
peanutnine What pattern did you use for these? They're so pretty! I've been dying to try knitting a pair of socks but there are so many patterns out there it's overwhelming! 2w
Deifio @ravenlee Oh no, what shall I do? 🤣 This is the test run for some overknee socks. So yes, might turn into load more socks after that 2w
Deifio @peanutnine Basically it's the standard German way to do it. The yarn I used from Schachenmayr has a how-to on their website and I watched YouTube videos for the turned heel, gusset and toe. I'd recommend to just pick one way and start. Maybe a tutorial on YouTube that does the whole sock? 2w

Thanks for the tag @SusanLee

1) Only had one new read and one reread. So I tagged the new read.

2) That it's set in Scotland. And that the MC is older and not a daredevil.

Started listening yesterday! So very interesting! I like the theory that we invented language to gossip better. It is very well explained, with fun little examples too. And the narrator for the audiobook has a very soothing voice.

Finished! I've got to say without The Legendarium Podcasts read-along I never would have gotten through some of the boring parts. But all in all I really loved this. It reads more like a history than a story. And I highly recommend reading it with a friend or with a podcast. Makes it soo much more enjoyable!

Daisey I love Tolkien‘s writing, and I completely agree with this. I‘ve read it at least three times and enjoyed it more each time, especially with discussion. 3mo

#1 crime fiction, more like those old black and white crime films set in Chicago and such

#2 I don't read many crime stories, and I don't classify PD James as noir fiction, so 🤷

Deifio @julesG Thanks! The kid got to choose the colour. And the book is really good! It's really more about the characters than about the plot. A bit like the Becky Chambers books. Just a really nice feel good fantasy book. 4mo

Finished yesterday. It does have an extra epilogue, which I haven't listened to yet.
I really liked the book. It's really focused on Daphne and Simon. Not like in the Netflix series, but I did enjoy both. So for anyone who liked the series: you can read the book, it does give you more insight into the characters. But it's only the main characters!

SusanLee Hello buddy! I‘ve only watched the series and haven‘t read any of the books! 4mo
Deifio @SusanLee Yes that's why I thought I'd give the books a try. And it was fun to get a bit more in depth with the two main characters. But I'm not sure I'll read the other books tbh. I think the first book has a very good adaptation. I assume the second one is the same 4mo
SusanLee @Deifio ah that sounds good! So I can skip the reading part since there are still so many books out there to be read 😅 4mo

Still reading along with The Legendarium podcast. On chapter 16 at the moment.
I still have a cold (since 2 weeks!) and it's hard to read sometimes because I'm soo tired or my head hurts. Doctor said my immune system is shot. So lots of rest, vitamins and tissues. But I do think it's going better the past two days.

mandarchy I hope you feel better soon. That does not sound like fun. 6mo

Aptly named second book in the series. But to be honest I don't really like either love interest much, especially not Falin. Otherwise it was very good and it set up a lot of questions for the next book to be answered.
