The wonderful @Sarah83 gave me this book for Christmas because she just knows me well and remembered how much I loved ‘Animant Crumbs Staubchronik‘. 😍 So this will be my next read - that‘s my evening sorted, I guess. 😊

The Years | Virginia Woolf
post image

Don‘t you love that weird time between Christmas and New Year‘s? In Germany, we call this week “between the years” and I think that phrase perfectly captures the typical limbo feeling most of us experience during these days. It‘s usually the time of year I‘m most relaxed: everybody is home and we spend the days watching films, playing board games, going for walks, and reading. Days seem to blend into each other and you kind of lose track of time.

Have you already read ‘The Miracle on Ebenezer Street‘? I‘ve heard so many good things so I recently caved in and ordered it. It‘s said to be a magically new take on ‘A Christmas Carol‘ so I‘m intrigued.

Do you revisit A Christmas Carol in whatever form during the holidays? Do you prefer the classic tale in book form, the Patrick Stewart film, or the Muppets movie version? Or any other adaptation?

Palimpsest @scripturient I try read to the original story every year. I usually watch a few versions which alternate year to year, but I love the 1970 Scrooge and A Muppets Christmas Carol. I own a few more including the Scott version, Stewart, Reginald Owen, and Disney. I didn‘t care for the Pierce version or the one directed by Figgis. I love this story so much! ❤️ I try to buy one new film adaption every year. I know I sound crazy. 14mo
Palimpsest Oh and I have The Man Who Invented Christmas. I‘ll probably buy the Sim version this year! 🎄 14mo
Avanders I do try to revisit The Christmas Carol everything year... in any form ☺️🎄♥️ 14mo
Daisey I watch the Muppet version every year, and in the last few years I‘ve started reading or listening to a version of the original each year as well. 14mo
Laughterhp I watch the muppet version every year! And do try to listen to the book on audio every year. 14mo

The Clockwork Crow | Catherine Fisher
post image
Pickpick

The Clockwork Crow is a whimsical treat of a children‘s story. Gothic mansions, family secrets and magical toys - this book has it all. What I loved particularly about this novel were the beautiful descriptions throughout. Fisher leads us through a fictional landscape that seems both familiar and unfamiliar with nods to classics such as The Secret Garden and a lot of somewhat uncanny but never terrifying things that happen to Seren.

@julesG and @squirrelbrain - Your packages are on their way. ☺️ Julia, I didn‘t get a hold of any wrapping paper (are people hoarding this now?) so please only open the package on your birthday. 😘

julesG Thank you. Maybe wrapping paper is the new bog roll? 2y

This is a super interesting story but I have trouble really getting into it with all the names, places, social hierarchies etc. Please tell me it gets better. 🤔

That-Bookish-Hiker I‘ve seen a lot of people on the Facebook OwlCrate page rave about how awesome this book. They‘ve done it so much they‘ve convinced me to read it when I haven‘t read any of her stuff but I haven‘t gotten the book yet. Plan on it though! 😊 Hope that helps and it gets better for you! 2y
Jen_Reads I‘m slowly getting into it. I wish there was a character list or something on the lines of that. 2y
tracey38 I have heard it's hard at first but then people love it. It just takes getting into the world she creates. I have it but haven't started it yet. 2y
KarouBlue At about page 250, the info dumps lighten up. I read the last 550 or so pages in one sitting. It was fantastic! 2y
