Fantastic audiobook! Loved listening to all the experts, and interviews with Jim Dale, Stephen Fry, and Jim Kay; and how they worked in little clips of the HP audiobooks. If you love the world of Harry Potter, and want to learn more about the history of real-world magic that inspired JKR, this is a great listen. Natalie Dormer also has a lovely voice tying it all together.

I cannot listen to this because the acting is so bad. I really enjoy both audiobooks and podcasts so I thought the audio format would be best for this book. The problem is the people the podcaster is supposed to be interviewing, and the reenactment of phone calls. They do not sound like people speaking naturally but people *reading* a script. I'm totally taken out of the story by the (lack of) acting. Will have to try in print.

LibrarianRyan That‘s a shame. The print book is so good. 1d
inthegreensandblues @LibrarianRyan I am really interested in the story so I am going to look into getting a Kindle or physical copy! 1d

#gratefulreads #Over500pages
I don't read books over 500 pages if I don't really like them so it's tough to choose a favorite! 😆 But I do particularly love the seventh installment of the Outlander series. My best friend is currently reading the third book and I hope she continues because I can't wait to discuss this one with her.

I also started reading Hex this week. Now that I'm finally feeling the Halloween spirit, I had a major craving for horror. Perfect weird, creepy vibes from chapter 1. 🎃

BillBlume This book is bizarre as hell. And the author is an incredibly nice guy (met him at an author event here in Richmond back when HEX came out). 2w

Thank you so much for the #AllHallowsRead gift, Mikala! @Laughterhp I have been interested in this series for a long time! I see that not only did Deanna Raybourn blurb the cover but the author also thanked her for feedback in the Acknowledgements so that's👍. Also this cover is 😍

Books 9 and 10 in the Mary Russell series. ? The Language of Bees ends with a "to be continued..." (er, hopefully that's not considered a spoiler?) so naturally I felt I should keep going to the next! LoB wasn't my favorite, but The God of the Hive really has me hooked. Tonight I'm going read and hopefully turn in early bc Long Week. ???

I guess I only read half of the back-cover blurb before deciding to read this (it was really the setting that got me), so I was surprised by a key plot point. But I'm actually glad that I didn't know what to expect going in or I might not have even picked this up. It was a sweet and moving story that I think will stick with me.
