This morning I settled on my desk and pressed play on my headphones expecting to listen to tagged book. Instead, this song cones blaring out. Unexpected, but it managed to wake me up on this cold morning.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa That would do it! I often listen to my audiobook in my car, so when it decides to quickly connect I either get ABC by the Jacksons or ABBA depending on if grabbed my music files alphabetically by song or artist. 😂. And it‘s always blasting because I have the volume up for books! 3d

My review: Yes! Yes! Yes! My first Cassie Dewell mystery, but it will definitely not be my last. In fact, after finishing this yesterday, I ordered the first book which I look forward to reading soon! This book is full of twists and turns and will leave you guessing until almost the last page.

The Phantom Twin | Lisa Brown
post image
Pickpick

It‘s been a while since I‘ve read a graphic novel in one sitting, but this one was gripping! It may have been the idea of a phantom twin, or the sideshow setting, or even the old-school tattoo parlor; most likely a combination of all of the above and the fact that I was drawn (pun intended) to all the characters.

I have pre-ordered a physical copy and will count down the days until its release. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Girl in Red | Christina Henry

In conversations with @gibblr I described this as Little Red Hiding Hood meets Bird Box but without the blindfolds. (Though the writing is weaker than Mallerman‘s.)

The beginning feels like third-person stream of consciousness, but if you can get past that, it‘s not bad. My initial reaction was to hate the ending, but I quickly realized I‘m okay with it. I understand why some people will not like the ending. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Earlene I liked this version better than some of the rest it still doesn‘t cut it. I grew up and still live in the province next to Prince Edward I had always pictured Avonlea and the characters dressing and living like the old family farm photos in our albums. Kevin Sullivan elevated their clothes and homes past what I feel it should be. The story was held it is the look I have trouble with. 2w

LibrarianRyan Thanks for sharing. I grew up with the CBC movies and the disney channel spinoff Avonlea. I loved them all. My childhood love even looked like Gilbert. I could still sit and watch this at any time. Even though movie 3 is the worst of the bunch.

I know that amoung readers, I am the #unpopularopinion but I liked Netflix's Anne with an E. I still haven't' see the last season, but winter is coming. I liked the changes, but still love original.

LibrarianRyan @ljuliel thoughts? 2w
ljuliel Great article, Ryan.I‘m totally clueless on any of the tv shows or movies, as I‘ve never watched one. This was a good book / series to bring up with the Classics floating through my head today. We could maybe put this , Little House on the Prairie and Cranford sort of in the same category. Books that any age could enjoy, lessons for life learned along the way , and a place and time long forgotten ( unless we read the books).Thank you 😊 2w
WanderingBookaneer @LibrarianRyan : This will forever be my favorite adaptation because, like you, it‘s what I grew up on. I watched the first season of the new series expecting to hate it and found that I didn‘t. However, given the choice to rewatch, my Anne will forever be Megan Follows (even if the third movie has been conveniently erased from my memory. 2w

For me, it‘s a third language, after the Creole
I picked up from my Haitian father
and Spanish from my mother
in the Dominican Republic.

Sometimes it‘s hard for me to imagine
knowing only one way of describing
hope.

julesG Depending on how important regional dialect versus regular high German is, English is either my fourth or my third language. I had a year of Russian before the Berlin Wall fell. Ha, that means 30 years ago I was sweating over cyrillic letters. Likewise, 29 years ago I was dancing for joy of being allowed to learn English. 4w
cherinium @julesG That is very interesting! I wish the US placed a higher priority on foreign language study. It is so much harder to master a new tongue as an adult. I wholeheartedly admire all of you that are multilingual. 💕 4w

1. How am I the only one who has posted about this book on Litsy?

2. I find myself crying, thankful that this account exist so that I could bear witness to such a lovely, long-lasting relationship.

I had never heard of Edie Windsor before her landmark Supreme Court case. A case that was being argued on March 27, 2013 as @BookishMarginalia and I were getting married in New York City‘s Carl Schurz Park. ⬇️

WanderingBookaneer Gloria and I—as well as countless other LGBTQ+ couples—owe a debt of gratitude to Edie‘s grit and determination and I wish more people would read this book so that they might not just understand that we are all just humans or that love is love, but also that this brave woman is a pioneer and a hero who deserves acclaim and recognition across the USA. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (edited) 4w

krismlars I actually feel a lot of pressure as The Book Friend. People ask me all the time, ‘Read any good books lately?‘, and I panic because I need to reference my spreadsheet first.
