I bought this book last week. They changed the title to coincide with the release of the movie. This edition has the article that inspired the movie.

I came home to #bookmail today!! I‘d almost forgotten that I got this in a Library Thing giveaway. I don‘t know if I will wait for #wintergames to start or not to read this. I‘ve so many festive books to finish the year with!

I‘m starting this one tonight (it‘s so pretty with the gold edges) and listening to Christmas music. Sometimes when you have a crappy day you gotta find something that makes you happy and to me that is Christmas music. 🎄🎅🏼

Totally not book related, but I am obsessed with getting these little birds at Target. I usually buy one new one a year for the different holidays. Somehow I managed to only walk out of there with this adorable little guy tonight.

Today I ventured to an adorable independent bookstore called Un Unlikely Story (opened by the guy who wrote the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, Jeff Kinney) and picked up the tagged graphic novel and this adorable notebook. If you‘re ever in Plainville, MA I highly recommend it.

I went to visit a friend at B&N today and she practically dropped this in my pile. Has anyone read it? It sounds intriguing.

writerlibrarian It got raved recs from Smartbitches. They even did an entire podcast on it. Here's the review https://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/reviews/gideon-the-ninth-by-tamsyn-muir/ (edited) 1mo

This was a cute book. Both main characters got on my nerves a little bit, but overall I enjoyed it and there‘s an adorable puppy in the story.

Non book related. My cat actually wants to cuddle. Sadly shortly after I had to move.

I feel like I‘m in the minority with this one, but I still don‘t know if I liked it or if I didn‘t. It was an odd book I feel.

⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

On another note. I haven‘t worked at Barnes and Noble for over a year now and I ran into one of my story time regulars tonight at Target and apparently I broke a little boys heart. Probably his grandmothers more because I would take time and we would sit and talk for an hour at a time most weeks.

This sketch/painting was auctioned off by the Eric Carle Picture Book Museum this week and I wish I could have afforded to bid on it. It‘s by an author/illustrator named David Small. This spoke to me and I wish there was a print somewhere of this, but alas nothing on his website.

The footnotes are difficult to follow at times and not miss the asterisks, but I love this particular one on languages. The more I read the more I love Jay Kristoff‘s writing.

Siosue I‘m having such a hard time with the footnotes! I find them entertaining and I do enjoy them at times, but I also tend to miss the asterisks, and can find them distracting from the story 3mo

As much as I don‘t like marking up book, along with my little cat tabs, I‘ve started highlighting my favorite parts and lines so far. In my defense of doing this (for my own mind) I‘m planning on ordering the other cover of this book to match the ones I‘ve already got on order.
