Is anyone else watching the HBO series? Just stunning! I loved the book and the series does not disappoint!

Prairiegirl_reading I have it on my list. Glad to hear that it‘s good. 1w
Cortg I rarely watch tv, but since I had read the book and my hubby hadn't watched it yet, we decided to start it. I'm more than halfway in and really enjoying it. It's been years since I've read the book so I don't remember it super well, which may help. I like the actors/actresses in the show. 1w

I really enjoyed listening to this YA audiobook. I liked the historical accuracy and was invested in Eelyn‘s journey back to her family while bringing two warring communities together. I‘ll give this 3.5/5⭐️ because it kept me interested and I will be recommending this to my students looking to continue their Vikings experience!

Kimberlone I really liked this one, but found the sequel to be pretty disappointing :/ 1w

This was a fun read… not especially deep, but fun! If you‘re a fan of 80s/90s slasher films, unreliable narrators, and fast-paced action, then this may be the book for you! I‘ll give it 3/5⭐️ It‘s on its way to @Alfrazier21 and should be there in a day or two. Sorry it took me so long to finish. Holidays, planning for midterms, general chaos! 😂 I‘ve received The Glass Hotel @Karisa and I‘m about to dive in to that tonight! #LMPBC #GroupV

Day 7: One of the best audiobooks I‘ve listened to in a long time. I was traveling to Florida by plane and then continued to listen to it on daily walks every morning while on vacation. It was fantastic! I loved the different voices (Benjamin Bratt?!?! 🔥🔥🔥Yes, please!!!!) and enjoyed every minute. I‘ve added some of my other favorite audiobooks (using Audible) in the comments below.

Day 6: While many books have made me cry, these four broke my heart. I‘ve reread each many times (I use Splendid Suns, The Road, and Harold Fry in my classes) and they still make me cry. Powerful writing that explores the human condition and the power of connections, whether it is set in a war torn country, a postapocalyptic world, a Parisian flat, or an English roadside, will always touch our minds and souls.

The Black Stallion | Walter Farley

#ProfessionalBookNerdsChallenge
Day 4: To say that I loved this book and reread the whole series multiple times does not adequately explain my feelings for The Black Stallion. This is the actual book that I read as a child. I will never get rid of it. Those endpapers were the inspiration for making and exploring equine art and I credit this book for igniting my lifelong love of horses and horseback riding.

Suet624 This book and Black Beauty were my favorites as a kid. Read them more than once. I ended up as an adult purchasing several horses. 3w

@Soubhiville How funny! We were direct matches for the #WinterSolsticeSwap and I had no idea! I love my gifts so much. Thank youuu!!! The irony is that the BN spruce soap (which you now know I gave you too) almost stayed home with me. I loved the scent so much but begrudgingly mailed it off to you. Serendipitous!! I think I‘ll read the tagged book first, but they all look so good. And I love those Yule cards! Thank you so much!

Soubhiville Isn‘t that funny? I thought it was the same but wasn‘t 100% sure. I love the scent too, now both our bathrooms will smell festive! 🤣 I hope you‘ll love the books. Happy Solstice! 1mo

Well this spicy little nugget caught me quite off guard! I‘m not often a fan of cheesy romance (not cheesy after all; apologies for the assumption), but a friend begged me to read it and I stand mightily corrected!! Lots of academia and STEM talk, humor, and a slow burn hot enough to scorch the pages! A fast and furious read that was a great palate cleanser between some much heavier reads (looking at you, Addie Larue and Kite Runner!) 4/5 ⭐️

tracey38 I have this on my tbr pile and have heard nothing but good things. Guess I need to get to it soon! 2mo

Set on the Isle of Lewis, this suspenseful novel follows a detective from Edinburgh as he returns to his childhood home in search of a possible serial killer. Once there, he discovers that the past has a way of digging its way back into his life and that all he remembers is not as it seems and that he may have been (see below)

5/5 ⭐️ Gosh, I enjoyed the book! True, some parts were quiet, but just such a lovely read! I felt like I had joined Addie on her journey and Henry broke my heart. I suggest reading this bundled under a snug blanket on a quiet and cold evening with stars visible through a window. I was worried that there might be some cliche sections, but Schwab‘s writing was both lyrical and polished. Thoroughly enjoyed!

This book kept me entranced! I found that I‘d have to stop reading again and again just to absorb the action and horror of some scenes and the emotion and meaning of others.

#LittensDressedInBlood I‘m selecting this photo for today‘s prompt (Mrs. Peacock in the library) because, even those these aren‘t my shelves nor a library, it is my favorite photo of my daughter surrounded by books! This was taken a few years ago at the Book Barn in Niantic, Connecticut. We LOVE to read!!

Nute It‘s a very cute photo. I love how she is holding her foot while she reads! It makes me wonder what kind of poses I have struck while lost in reading amongst the shelves in bookstores.🥴 5mo
Readergrrl @Nute I remember reading while slumped upside down on my grandmother‘s sofa, my feet propped up on the wall…. 😂 5mo
wanderinglynn Super awesome photo! 🤩 5mo

Readergrrl @Avanders I meant to take a picture but was rushing around on Friday and completely forgot! (edited) 4mo

@BookwormAHN I think you‘ve done a little sleuthing!! The Black Stallion is my favorite childhood book, I have a yellow dog, and, as a teacher, I‘m often “marking words.” Great job! I love them! Thank youuu!!!!! #SummerBookmarkSwap

#SummerBookmarkSwap
I am away on vacation for a week or so, but I see that I have received bookmarks from @cwarnier and @JenaJenkins !! I‘ll be so excited to open them when I get home! Yay!

 @JenaJenkins Have you received mine yet? I worry about the USPS losing items!

@LapReader I mailed yours last week too, but I suspect they will take a little longer to reach you! 😊🐨

cwarnier Enjoy your vacation. 5mo
JenaJenkins I got them & loved them! Handmade items are so special - thank you!! 5mo

The Ballad of Black Tom | Victor LaValle
post image
Pickpick

This was a fun and fast read by one of my favorite authors, Victor LaValle. I think I would have liked to see the story more fleshed out, but, as a novella, I quite enjoyed the experience. I loved the HBO series, Lovecraft Country, and this novella felt the same. Overall, I‘ll give this a 4/5 ⭐️ because it was just what I was looking for: escapist, dark, fast, and fun! ☠️🐙🎸🔪
