Clara is coming to Vogue Knitting Live - Cbus Edition and I wanted to read something of hers. Nonfiction is not my normal go to, so I audiobooked this and really enjoyed it!! Might even listen to her other book the library has since I have awhile until my holds come in!!

I am not a great audiobook listener - I‘m too easily distracted and easily forget details if it‘s been too long - so discovering that rereading old favorites via audio works for me has been a joy. Esp when those favorites have an excellent narrator as the thief series does. Always love!

Checked another short book I‘ve been meaning to read off my list!! And I freaking loved it! Could read an entire 300 pages about Troy, Gabe and Elena! Best!

I love a fairy tale retelling and combining two into one is the bees knees. Also, this edition is gorgeous! (And a quick read, which is always appreciated!)

Did I think the plot got overly convoluted a bunch of times? Yes. Did that stop me from tearing through all three books? No. No it did not.

Tried the physical book. Tried the audio book. I was bored at first and once the action picked up, I was just depressed. Too much death, not enough cathedral building for me. So it was a rare bail on this one, sadly.

Well-ReadNeck You may want to give the mini-series a try. It follows the book very closely ... and Eddie Redmayne!!!! 7mo
Leftik @Well-ReadNeck I do LOVE Eddie!! 7mo

Midnight Riot | Ben Aaronovitch

My reading plans were thrown for a loop when a few books came off my hold list! Midnight Riot - Or Rivers of London, depending on who you ask - is the first book in a series I‘ve been meaning to revisit and catch up on. A friend recommended the audiobooks and they were so right! The narrator was GREAT. And the book itself held up on the reread! Can‘t wait for the next book to come in!

I suspect this was so-so for me because it‘s not my particular cup of tea. I thought the writing was good enough to be interested in picking up his next book, but likely I won‘t be buying a copy. I still love you, Graham! I just don‘t love moody Mysteries!

Since I just finished this, I was revisiting my trip to Oxford almost a decade ago when my friends and I made the pilgrimage to the botanical gardens to see Lyra and Will‘s bench. It‘s hard to see, but their names are scratched in the arm.

I designated January as Catch Up on Library Stack and this is my first stack I‘m taking back. I love getting arts/crafts/hobbies books from the library to decide if I should invest in a copy for my home library. Of this lot, I‘m for sure grabbing 500 Crochet Stitches! Crochet Skill Builder‘s Workshop was also great. (Brioche is still a bit too advanced for me!) #crochet #knitting #sewing #yaycrafts!

This was a slower start than Song of Achilles but I think by the end I liked it more - maybe because I didn‘t know her myths quite as well. Greek myths + Retellings 4eva!

I have about 14 days to get through both this AND Deathly Hallows on audio!! Let‘s do it! (Also this MIGHT be my fave of the Pottermore covers, even though I love them and their negative space all equally. ;) )

Even though Chamber of Secrets is my least favorite book, I find Order to be the hardest one to get through. So much miscommunication, so many bad assumptions and missed opportunities. I love it but it makes my heart hurt.

Started this audio a few days ago - it‘s the longest of the series, clocking in at 27 hours - and I‘ll be listening constantly because both HBP and DH audio books just came in for me. It‘s a Potter-palooza! (Also, yay Luna!)
