Found these at my local book store & couldn't resist a little midweek pick me up 😁
Well today was annoying.
Low point : my book trolley tipping over while exiting the lift, books loudly went everywhere and yet no one noticed? 🤨
High point : impressing a kid with my amazing recall for books and authors - tales of a fourth grade nothing-BLUME, drama - TELGEMEIER (I impressed the librarian with that one), first HP book - too easy.
To play post a positive quote and tag a Litten friend or two.

No matter how old I get, this book and movie will always be one I read and watch over and over again. Although the school #Campus is a bit rough at first, Matilda figures out how to navigate it quite well. 😁
Mixed feelings with this book😳Of course I love Matilda and her passion for books. Love also her beautiful relationship with her teacher, Miss Honey. But there are so much abuse in this story, physical and psychological from the headmaster and her parents. It was terrible, no funny at all to me. Then you have Miss Honey talking with a 5 year old girl about her problems including family suicide ? What? I was struggling with all this abuse😬😠3⭐️

Had a fun day yesterday listening to the Big weekend of books on RN & I‘m keen to listen again today. I put my ear buds in & masked up for my daily lockdown exercise. I used it to go to the local book swap & these are what I scored. Matilda is a very cute edition. I own Michelle‘s autobiography too, that I am yet to read. Any one else read them one after the other or is that too much? The feel the fear & do it anyway might help me get a license?
1) I remember watching the news coverage of the Columbine High School shooting when I was in high school myself. Little did I know this would be an incident I would train for as an educator now.
2) Library! I don't think I've been in a bookstore since before COVID.
3) Tagged- I loved that Matilda loved books for their transportive properties the way I love them!
When a very special person gets you these for your birthday ❤ Absolutely adore Matilda and her love for books, it's so me! 📚 Couldn't get a more thoughful gift in my eyes 😍
4 STARS - This was an enjoyable, quirky story about an extraordinary girl. I'm glad I finally read/listened to it. Kate Winslet as narrator was phenomenal!!!

Can we all take a moment to appreciate this awesome card that @jenniferw88 sent me? This is the most perfect picture. I might frame it!! Thanks Jenny
My last day at my old store.... my entire team wore bookish T-shirts and we took a ton of photos with our shirts and matching books for our store Instagram.... here‘s me and my 2 assistant managers. Going to miss my whole team so much! 💕📚
Hell yes! It me! 💖
I've read this book as a #bookspin for March. I liked the story, but I kept thinking I liked the film better. The storyline of the film is so much more ingrained on my mind. But nevertheless Roald Dahl is a very good writer. The drawings ofcourse are great.
TBR since August 28th. 2011; 233 pages.
One of the absolute cutest early middle grade reads. Matilda is an adorably wonderful main character & very inspiring. She is intelligent & humble, has a great sense of moral character, & is quite confident despite her horrible upbringing. The writing is perfectly age appropriate & somehow, despite the absolutely horrible way Matilda's parents & Miss Trunchbull act, it doesn't read overly scary for that set. My favorite Roald Dahl read thus far.
For an almost 28 year old adult, I LOVE this book! It makes my heart swell and I laugh out loud each time that I read it. I‘m going back and rereading a lot of my childhood favourites at the moment. I always saw a lot of myself in Matilda growing up. A family who didn‘t like/see me, a love for books and knowledge at an extraordinarily young age. And Miss Honey, well she is my childhood hero!
1 - hm. I am sure there are so many, but with the question in front of me I am like uhhhh... Miss Trunchball from Matilda. I will think of a bunch of answers after I post this....
2 - Plot but I do like a good character. There are definitely books that didn't have an amazing plot, but I loved the characters!
Thanks to @EadieB for the tag!
