We're having crazy thunderstorms this afternoon! There are probably productive things I should be doing, but I can't resist curling up in the sunroom, listening to the rain hit the metal roof, and reading a great book. 🥰

BookmarkTavern That sounds like a perfect afternoon! 5d

GondorGirl @Pogue I finished the first two today and have already downloaded the third from the library. 😅 4d

Maple Lam's new graphic novel came out last week, and I had the opportunity to meet her at #GRCC today and pick up a signed copy. I love the mix of East and West mythology, and the artwork is adorable. I can't wait to read it at the hotel tonight!

A gender swapped, feminist Orpheus and Eurydice?
Yes, please!

As a related side-note: I saw Hadestown last week and it was one of the, if not THE best shows I've ever seen live. If you're a musical and/or mythology buff you have to check that it out!

SaunteringVaguelyDownwards I enjoyed Hadestown so much! It's one of the few shows I've seen that I didn't know much about, and I really enjoyed both the mythology and the New Orleans inspired jazz soundtrack. 2mo

The Fury | Alex Michaelides

Mehso-so

I'm typically a fan of Michaelides' brand of pretentious psycho-lit, but I think this one just went too far for me.

It felt like there were no bread crumbs and the twist was out of the blue. Combine that with characters that were all various degrees of horrible... well, I just didn't like this one much at all. Meh.

My first book is the tagged, second book in The Last Binding trilogy. I finished the series today (book #7 for the year!) and give the series 5 stars overall. I think this was the weakest of the series, but still really good. If you like spicy historic fantasy check this one out!

I don't even know how to review this one except to say it was one of the best books I've read this year, but also BRUTAL.

Basically, a bunch of children are raised by their "Father", who might be a god, and are trained in a single subject, such as languages, animals, reincarnation, murder... And maybe the world might end? Or maybe the god might retire? Or maybe a man in a tutu might murder everyone? Come for the violence, stay for the feelings!

If you're looking for a seasonal read that isn't a romantic comedy you should check out The Kingdom of Sweets. It's a dark fairytale inspired by The Nutcracker that centers around a set of twins (one light and one dark), their magician godfather, and a fairy who rules over a land of confections. It's dark, twisty, and wonderful. 4☆

I've been burning through audiobooks the last few days, trying to finish up my #2023 reading challenges. Unfortunately, a few of the prompts were ones I had put off, because they sounded boring/terrible... and now I have to finish them all in the next couple weeks. 😅 Dammit, Past Me, why couldn't you have spaced them throughout the year?

CocoReads I‘ve pretty much given up on all mine although I did finish my A to Z challenge last night. I need to try for less challenges but they all sound so fun! Also this last year has been super challenging on other fronts so I‘m just going to hope for a better 2024! 4mo
GondorGirl @CocoReads I typically do a LOT of challenges, but I think next year I'm going to cut way back and focus on my TBR. 🤞 4mo
CocoReads That‘s a good plan. We moved to a bigger house this year but still brought too much stuff. I‘m trying to focus on my physical tbr and use the library more. It‘s just not feasible to buy and keep every book I‘ve ever read, no matter how much I want to. 4mo

The Libby app posted this earlier, and it's brought up the question of how many library cards are too many?

So, answer me this: how many library cards do you have?

(I have 16 😅)

AlaMich But how do you have that many, is what I‘ve always wondered. I can see two or three. 5mo
GondorGirl @AlaMich in Ohio you can get a card from any library in the state. And I use my dad's library card. There are also a few you can get for free, even if you don't live in state. I probably listen to 150+ audiobooks a year, so I like having lots of options. 5mo
AmandaBlaze I have 5 on Libby and thought that was a lot. lol I tried to get one from each of the main regional systems in Ohio. So far Clevenet and Toledo-Lucas County Public Library have the most copies of new fiction, I found. 5mo

GondorGirl @AmandaBlaze I have a lot of luck with new fiction at Cuyahoga. I already have hold on audiobooks there for books that don't come out for a few months. 5mo
BookCrazeReviews I have 2 library cards 5mo
Bookwormjillk I have two, well 3 really, but I can‘t get the 3rd to work. 5mo
vlwelser I just have 2 which means I have 20 holds. I should not be allowed any more than that. No matter how much I want them sometimes. And one of them is Boston and I can also go get actual books and dvds so 🤷 5mo
AmandaBlaze @GondorGirl Thanks for the info. I now have 6 library cards. 5mo
GondorGirl @AmandaBlaze 😂😂😂 5mo
SaunteringVaguelyDownwards I used to have three - one from each state I had lived in over the past five years - but I lost one when they required me to confirm my address. Unfortunately, the state with the most ebooks available through Libby is not the one I currently live in! 5mo
Kenyazero 16! That's awesome! I have 7 since I can get a library card to just about any public library in my state. 5mo
Blueberry I did have 6 but I'm down to 4. With 2 of my libraries being San Francisco and Sacramento I'm pretty well covered. And then I have my local library system and one more it is affiliated with. I used to have Berkeley also but I could never find the ebooks I wanted so I let it expire. 5mo
5280reader 2 library cards but I seem to sign up for 4 different summer reading programs. That‘s when it gets crazy!😜 5mo
Susanita I have 7 at the moment, including a digital-only card that I obtained during lockdown from a more distant county that was the only one in the state with a specific book in the Shetland series. 5mo
MissyD I have 8. Technically. 4 belong to family members that I pick up books for when they can‘t make it to the library. My own: 2 active cards that I use….then 1 for the New York public library. And 1 reader‘s card for the library of congress. 5mo
mariaku21 I have 2 now since my BPL one is inactive as they're not accepting out of state applications currently 5mo
Roary47 How do you get more than one library card? 5mo
GondorGirl @Roary47 Some cities have free digital cards for out of state people, my state (Ohio) let's you get a digital card from every library in the state, I also just my dad's library card since he doesn't do digital. 5mo

When Light Bringer came out earlier this year Pierce Brown released an exclusive file that could be used to print a life-sized Sling Blade. Well, I don't have space for a 5' long cosplay weapon... so I had a friend shrink the file and print me a small version for my bookshelf. Today, I finally got around to painting it.

Today's audiobook project has been painting this owlbear miniature for my Dungeons and Dragons campaign. He's very small, so it was a challenge to get in all the details I wanted, but overall, I'm happy with the result. Owlbears are my favorite fantasy creatures, and I think more books should use them. Forget dragons, owlbears are the future! 😁

Bonus: This is one of my favorite Greek historical fiction books.
