@mcipher - Thank you so much for a wonderful #staycationintime box!! I love the Victorian/steampunk theme! The books are perfect, the candle smells amazing (and yes—seems very Victorian!), & I‘m so excited about the teas! I‘m already wearing the necklace—it matches the skirt I‘m wearing.😊The caramels look yummy, and I‘ll be sure to record my steampunk adventures in the journal.😉 Also—such cute wrapping paper!! Hope your box arrived okay?

BarbaraJean Thank you @Chrissyreadit for organizing such a fun swap!! 4d

Mid-week update for #BFCR3 #TeamLetsDoThis @CocoReads @Reecaspieces @Moony @imabusybee @CaroPi @jb72 @Eeyore031370 @LibrarianJen @britt_brooke @wanderinglynn

Several trips to the DIY store, especially to the shelves at the very back of the large shop, have made Monday and Tuesday a real success. Today is a little laid-back. Met some friends for breakfast, spent the afternoon reading, but there will be another trip to the DIY store later.

👇

julesG Slowly, but steadily my shower stall is taking shape. My cats are pretty relaxed about the whole thing. #GhostCat is even sleeping while there's hammering going on. 5d
squirrelbrain That‘s unusual for cats! Glad to hear bathroom is coming along nicely... 😘 5d

@DeweysReadathon can I still join? Didn't know about the #reversereadathon until I checked Litsy this morning.

As it is, I've already read for 2.5 hours this morning.

Leniverse Yay! I'm sure it's not too late to sign up. 2w

Lazy day today. I needed it. 5k steps so far. Not bad, actually, for a lazy day.

Got some reading time, made plum crumble and finished the fingerless mittens - inspired by the tagged book.

Second day with lots of steps (my average is 5k), hardly any reading, and a lot of active minutes.

I bought a coffee plant today and, of course, had to put it into a mug. 😁

Week 6 might become my most active week.

julesG @Velvetfur @Reecaspieces - Ask at flower shops. Or get fresh coffee beans (not roasted yet). They are supposed to grow quite fast. I might need a larger mug soon. 3w

Not quite sure what I'm enjoying more right now: Sitting outside at 31°C but there's a breeze that is blowing at my fabric panels. I have iced oat-milk coffee, incense sticks, and -last but not least- a middle grade steampunk story.

I'm tired. Last night was too warm, too short.

I've managed a little over an hour of reading so far. I'm a bit disappointed, but my help kept me from reading.

Good Morning Littens!

Windows wide open. Eggs fried. Strong builder's tea made (sans sucre).

Let the #readathon begin.

#24B4Monday @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65

#audiowalk will happen in about an hour and then it's reading and hiding from the heat for the rest of the day.

TrishB Eggs look lovely 😊 3w

Managed to read over 16 hours within the official 48 hour time frame. It was 18.5 hours if I use my local time, CEST, as reference points. I'm sure I could have done 24 hours with an intriguing audiobook. That means, better planning next time.

Finished 4 books, made progress on three more.

Thank you @24in48 for the #24in48 #readathon. I had a wonderful self-care weekend.

#Hour6 #photochallenge #24in48 is #SFF

Well, I have quite a lot of SFF books. I picked a few from my bedroom shelves and am hiding behind the tagged book that I'm intending to read this weekend - all your great posts make me rethink my TBR choices for this weekend though.

My current view.

I thought it was hay-fever with a bit of a cold. Now it's the other way round. Gah! Can I get a break? Stat! I hate being ill all the time.

Might get some reading done, though.

On top of all the reading I'm doing already. 😉

Off day. I'm feeling "meh". Will not make my step count today. Might not even read much.

Oh well.

My son loaned me the tagged book because I got the second in the series from NetGalley.com.

'Murder, mayhem and mystery meet in this gripping Victorian adventure'

I loved this! Our year 6 classes read it and the kids raved so I thought I'd try it. Really enjoyed if and I brought the next one! :)

I loved this book so much more than I anticipated! It‘s such a rich world and the plot is intense and exciting. There‘s so much going on, the characters are really well drawn and the whole thing is perfectly paced. This book is great fun and I can‘t wait to read the next instalment.

🦊🦊🦊🦊 This book was delightful! It's a kid's book, just so you know, but it was a wonderful adventure story. I liked it very much.

Megabooks Cute cover! 2y
angrylilasian Never heard of this but the description has me intrigued! I can't find this anywhere so I'm ordering it online. 😄 2y
Foxyfictionista @Booksandcooks That's how I ended up with this book. I saw it at a friend's house and I admired the cover so she said 'take it'. So I did. 😊 2y

Foxyfictionista @angrylilasian Where do you live? I'm in the UK and I've seen it in the shops here so maybe it's one of those that hasn't made it out of this country yet. The author is from London and I think that this might be his first novel. I hope you enjoy it! 2y
angrylilasian @Foxyfictionista I'm in the US. If I had seen this in a bookstore I definitely would have bought it. I love the cover! 2y

Seth and I just finished this story set in steampunk, Victorian England. We both enjoyed it though for the age it's aimed at (I'd say 10+) we'd perhaps have liked a bit more back story about the intriguing mechanicals and mechanimals. It's an unusual, gripping story despite a couple of brutal parts which were perhaps passed over a little too quickly. We're excited to read the follow up - Moonlocket - next. (Covers are gorgeous too) #raisingreaders

4* - This was such a good read! It had action, intrigue, heartbreak and excitement all rolled in to a family friendly steampunk adventure. It also had a handy glossary at the back to explain some words that younger readers might not know. I loved this feature as I personally prefer that to having definitions included as we go which I personally find ruin the flow of the story. Definitely intrigued to find out what happens to the characters next!

Mehso-so

Peter Bunzl's debut fantasy novel for children aged 12+ is a solid steampunk adventure with a strong main character, some great world building and genuinely creepy scenes but it's hampered by two-dimensional antagonists and guessable twists.
