Jaws | Peter Benchley
post image
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!! 😂 🦈 2mo
Yuki_Onna I love your sharkies!!! 2mo
OndinetheSea @kplovesbooks the shark worked hard, he deserved it 😆 2mo

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

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I LOVED this one. Listen to Act II now. 2mo

North and South | Elizabeth Gaskell

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 😆

kplovesbooks I loved the BBC miniseries!! ♥️ Haven't gotten to the book yet but it's on my TBR. 2mo
OndinetheSea @kplovesbooks it is a such a great read! 2mo

Jaws | Peter Benchley

I started Jaws this morning, it is my scare pair for the #screamathon since I have never read or seen the movie.
So far, I agree with Steve Spielberg. I also find the characters unsympathetic and I want the shark to eat them all. 😅

kplovesbooks The book legit sucked. Total agreement about the characters!! They're even worse in the book than the movie. 2mo

Here's my October TBR List for #screamathon @4thhouseontheleft

Made up of audio books, a few books from my shelf, and the rest are all available at my local library!
It's a longer list than I meant to have, but there are so many books I'm excited to read 😊

(I was going to add Sandman to this list, but I'll be finishing it up tomorrow or the day after.)

Yuki_Onna Soo many great choices on this list 🙌 2mo
4thhouseontheleft Are you listening to the Sandman audiobook? The next one just released last week on Audible and I‘m so excited to listen to it! 2mo
OndinetheSea @4thhouseontheleft I am! It is such a Rollercoaster , and I might just have to get Sandman act 2 with my next credit 😊 2mo

Match questions

1. I love carving pumpkins, it's so much fun
2. I do! My fave pair rn has DJ killer whales and say 'Killer Beats' on them
3. Greens, like emerald, forest, and pastel greens
4. Scrunchies (I get fall vibes from them)
5. Like a dragon, I hoard bookmarks
6. Any Aurora dresses that change from pink to blue, I think they're really cool
7. Yay! I like ball, beanie, and bucket hats

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.

Fallen angels in a decaying, post war Paris, doing whatever they can to survive and protect their own.
It's a thrilling read and I enjoyed it very much. The imagery is beautiful and the characters are wonderfully written.

This is my new favorite book, a 10/10, and my new favorite author
I highly recommend this book, and the rest of The Dominion of the Fallen trilogy.

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.
