Good Omens | Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett
post image
Pickpick

Good Omens became a comfort show for me. I found that when everything felt wrong, watching the show made it all feel better.
So finally reading the book was fun for me, I really enjoyed it. I bounced back and forth between the physical copy I received from @TheDaysGoBy (thank you again❤️), and the audiobook while I was at work.

It's a very fun read, 10/10

#NeilGaimanNovember

wanderinglynn Love Good Omens & can‘t wait for season 2! 2mo
OndinetheSea @wanderinglynn same! I'm so excited for season 2!! I can't wait to see Crowley and Aziraphale again 2mo

“I like stories where women save themselves.“ - Neil Gaiman.

10/10 would recommend this story, I really enjoyed this book. It's such an interesting retelling of sleeping beauty and I love the artwork.

October Reading Progress is minimal 😅

I keep book hopping, so I'm not very far in to any of the books yet. However, I'm really liking Belladonna.

I'll most likely slide right into #NeilGaimanNovember with Trigger Warning and Good Omens

Here's my Halloween vibes! ?
"That's horrifying! Please Contine." Is almost exactly my thoughts while I was listening to The Sandman act I & Horrorstör.
I have a black cat and I love black cats, and all cats.
I am a veteran observer of the tumblr skeleton wars.
The picture of the oracle and tarot decks is actually my witchy shelf in my room.
Hopefully this helps

Jaws | Peter Benchley

Mehso-so

Jaws was interesting.
Peter Benchley did a great job writing unlikable characters. The parts of the book I enjoyed the most were of the shark. Or as he's called in the book 'The Fish'.
The movie felt like a different story. They changed a considerable amount, and I don't have a problem with that at all. And as always, a jump scare got me even though I knew it was coming.

Book: 4/10
Book 🦈: 10/10
Movie: 6/10
Movie 🦈: 10/10

kplovesbooks Same! ...and I like how you gave the shark it's own separate rating!! 😂 🦈 1y

My response to the end of the audiobook saying 'audible hopes you have enjoyed this program' was "I enjoyed it. It terrified me, but I enjoyed it."

And that is my review. ?

It got very dark for me at a certain point or two, but it's a very enjoyable book and I am excited for act 2

I love regency era love stories. They are often filled with angst and misunderstandings, and I live for it!
This book is wonderful! I enjoyed all the frustration and struggles that the characters went through to understand their feelings. And I also enjoyed the poetry at the beginning of the chapters.
I have watched the North & South BBC miniseries, it is also very good, but the book is definitely better, as is usual 😆

One of my favorite childhood series!
A brave warrior mouse takes on Cluny the Scourge to save his home and friends.
I remember watching the show on PBS, and it is possible my mom read the first book to me.
This is my first time reading the series since

I highly recommend this book and series. And I recommend The audio books, narrated by the author and a full cast

This book was such an interesting read. I enjoyed it very much. Out of all the mysterious in this book, I only knew one of them, the disappearance of Amelia Earhart.
So many other great mysteries I had never heard of before. Disappearing ships, a missing crew, a sunken treasure ship, and lots more.

I give it a 10/10

You ever just close a book because you need a second to process the emotions? Yeah, I did that several times with this book. 10/10 once again.

I could not read this book fast enough!
The Dragon Prince's story continues and more new characters are introduce. One of them just wants the power to protect her family, and another one just wants the world to burn.

10/10 and my favorite book in The Dominion of the Fallen Series.
What could be better than power struggles between the Fallen Angel factions? An underwater Dragon Kingdom, that's what.
Focusing on a new Fallen faction, House Hawthorne, the story follows a couple characters from the first book, and a newly introduced Dragon Prince.

Read for the #screamathon hosted by @4thhouseontheleft
This was a crazy read! The antagonist terrified me and it has quite a lot of vulgar language, and very twisted things happening.
I feel like you can only get away with that in a western, but with a group of men escaping from a prison's murder cell block, Marshal Cole and Deputy Marshal Hitch are the men you'd want to track them down.

This was my first book for the #screamathon @4thhouseontheleft
If you like shark movies like I do, then this is a good book to check out. I love sharks, and bad shark movies(and shark books) are a guilty pleasure of mine.
I enjoyed this book, even if the sharks play a monster role. The author did a great job making me like or dislike the characters. There were a couple twists I didn't see coming, but with sharks, the ending was as expected.
