Snuggled up with my girl as I finish my book. #bestplaceintheworld I enjoyed the book. It was different than the first two in the series. It was a fun complement to the Netflix show and that made it fun. Also really easy reading. If you like the show you will like the show. #strangerthings #tvshowbooks #babysnuggles

Just watched this with my children. I suppose it‘s on point with it being Halloween week and all. That said I hate scary movies so this was TERRIBLE for me. They all loved it though. #halloween #scarystories #horror #booktomovieadaptation #help #save e

Well I didn‘t finish the book but I did see the movie today. Apparently I managed to get far enough through it that I stopped just after this movie did. The movie was good. Decent enough move to book adaptation. Anyone else see it? What did you think? #dune #dunemovie #dunebook #booktomovie #booktomovieadaptation #classics

LapReader My partner is so excited to take me to it when it arrives in Australia. He ordered the box set of books so he could finish the series before we see the movie. 11mo
EdnaC @LapReader that‘s so fun!! I read the book because my son really liked it. It‘s been fun sharing it. I hope you and your husband enjoy the movie when it comes. :) 11mo

I‘ve read it before - more than once - but my daughter is reading it at the moment so I figured I would throw on the audiobook while I was in the car. I had forgotten some details that are in the book but not the movie. #harrypotter #potteraday

This was such a fun book. I already love Rogue. She has been a favorite of mine for a long time. But this book was so fun. So interesting to see her beginnings and watch her come into her own. It was cool. I liked it a lot. #xmen #rogue #comics

I enjoyed this book. It pulled at my heartstrings. I rooted for them and I liked the way it ended. But I don‘t know. Something felt off. The main character had high functioning Asperger‘s (yes I know that‘s old terminology but the book is ten years old). Something about him didn‘t feel authentic to me. Maybe I don‘t have enough experience with this type of ASD but it didn‘t sit right with me. #autism #asd #autismawareness

1984 | George Orwell

I read this book once before when I was pretty young. Too young to truly understand and feel the weight of it. I‘m only about 2/3 of the way through it now but what strikes me is how we have always feared losing our rights to those in power. How this theme has reoccurred in so many stories. It‘s always there. Waiting to jump out at us and wave the flag and say, “It‘s here right now.” #thatsclassic #dystopian #1984

WomanistBibliophile It‘s less people just fearing the loss of freedoms and more the way those in power constantly threaten, impede and take our freedoms. 1y
EdnaC @WomanistBibliophile yes. I don‘t mean to imply it‘s not a valid fear or threat. It‘s something I discuss with my family a lot. How we need to protect our rights vigilantly because each one we give away leads to them taking many more. It‘s just interesting how it‘s been the same for so long. How that fight to protect our rights has really always been there. 1y

It‘s windy and rainy here today. So much so I had to run out in the rain and save my plants that were on the tiered bed when it fell over. Now I think the rest of the day should be spent curled up with my book. What do y‘all think? ;)

This book was interesting. It was fun to look at Snape step by step through the books and through the story. I‘ve always enjoyed his story. So this was interesting. I had been expecting a fan fiction backstory on Snape so this was not what I thought I was getting but it was decent to read. #harrypotter

Hercules has long been a favorite Disney movie in our house. So I was SO EXCITED to have this twisted tale come out. And it did not disappoint. It was dramatically different than the other twisted tales I have read but I really enjoyed what it did with the story. It was so fun. #disney #hercules #twistedtales

This sweetie snuggled with me while I finished my book this afternoon. She‘s a good reading companion. The book was very good, a little sad, but very good. It wasn‘t exactly what I was hoping for but it was very good. Loki is a very fun Marvel character and this just adds to his depth. #marvel #loki #thor #thorandloki

This book is not what I was expecting. It‘s sort of interesting but not what I was hoping for. Not even really sure why I‘m continuing to read it. In theory I know I don‘t have to finish it just because I started it and yet I feel compelled to keep reading. #harrypotter #severussnape #potter

I enjoyed this book. It was sweet and heartwarming and just sort of makes you smile the whole way. I definitely found Kahlen to be a likable main character. I could relate to her feelings and found myself wanting her to be happy. Also I now want to visit Port Clyde, Maine.

This was a very fun book. A charming sequel to a really cute book. A sweet teen love story. One that‘s innocent and safe for my twelve year old to read, which is awesome as far as I am concerned.

My mother loved Gone With the Wind. I grew up watching it so often I knew every line. But I never saw the love story in it. I always saw it as sad. This book fixes the things I disliked about Gone With the Wind. Plus half of it takes place in Ireland which makes it a fun read as we approach St. Patrick‘s Day. #ireland #stpatricksday

I actually read this book because of the references in The Eyre Affair. It was really fun to read the original source after finishing that book. The book itself was good, a sweet story, characters that were relatable. I also find it interesting to read novels written in other times. #thatsclassic #janneyre #charlottebronte

I originally read this series as a read aloud with my kids. The original series (The Land of Stories) was a cute children‘s book series and we all enjoyed it. The prequel series is heavier, older, dealing with more real life stuff, and so incredibly profound. I was blown away by how much was dealt with in this book. And so good for my preteen daughter who deals with age appropriate self doubt. #thelandofstories #booksheal

So accurate. We have plans to build another wall bookcase in our bedroom. Until we do my side table is overflowing. The piles are high enough they may pose a hazard. :) #bookwormproblems

Years ago I read the second book in this series. I love the concept of the series. I found the second book confusing (probably because I had missed the first book where they really explained what was happening). I tried this one hoping I would love it. But it was still not my favorite. Sigh. It is my #bookspinbingo read so yay for that.
