“Tiffany could feel the hat. At least she had been able to feel it. The #virtual hat, on her real head. But no one could see it, and Petulia had even waved a hand back and forth over Tiffany‘s head and encountered a complete absence of hat.” #QuotsyMay19
I forgot to share my #BookMail #MiniBookHaul! I don‘t order books online often; I love the thrill of hunting the shelves of used bookstores until I finally find an elusive book! I‘ve had no luck in my search for the last book in a series that‘s out of print so I broke down & ordered it. Decided I might as well get a few other books I‘ve been looking for...👆Still waiting for the long sought after title that prompted me to order in the first place!
Finished the second Tiffany Aching and I loved it. More characters to appreciate and of course the Nac MAC Feegle are there :) I wish I had these when I was younger.
Tiffany Aching is ready to begin her apprenticeship in magic. What Tiffany doesn't know is that an insidious, disembodied creature is pursuing her. This time, neither Mistress Weatherwax nor the fierce, six-inch-high Wee Free Men can protect her. In the end, it will take all of Tiffany's inner strength to save herself . . . if it can be done at all..

This evening I‘m hoping to finish A Hat Full Of Sky and maybe The Hedge Witch‘s Way too. I feel like I‘ve been reading these two books forever and I‘m loving them so I don‘t want to end up in a slump. It‘s time to get serious and knuckle down with them. 👊
I‘ve got my eye on a few books I might like to start next but I‘m still narrowing it down. #gnuterrypratchett #sirterrypratchett #speakhisname #terrypratchett #currentlyreading #bookstamums
The little one is poorly so mama gets to read whilst she snuggles up with me and watches Little Princess. I hate when she has an upset that I can‘t help right away. She‘s got a tummy upset and all the home remedies in the world aren‘t helping, nor is calpol. Poor babe. Rob Anybody has a PLN but I don‘t think that will help either. For now coffee and cuddles.
What are you reading right now? #gnuterrypratchett #sirterrypratchett #terrypratchett
I love Esme Weatherwax. She‘s no nonsense, to the point or get out of my way, do as I say awesome and whilst 100 other literary and pop culture witches provide me with inspiration Esme is the only one that embodies my deepest inner thoughts. It‘s all about headology and no one knows headology like Esmeralda Weatherwax. I bet no one pulls the hat off like her either. #gnuterrypratchett #discworld #terrypratchett #speakhisname
QOTD: Is there a fandom you adore that just doesn‘t have enough merchandise?
AOTD: For me it‘s Terry Pratchett. I‘ve been a huge fan since 2015 when I first discovered him and despite the amazing services at @discworldemporium there is nothing. Where‘s my inspired candles? Where‘s my quote bookmarks? Or any bookmarks? 🤷🏼♀️ #terrypratchett #pterry #discworld #bookstagram #bookblogger #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #bookaddict #booklover
Our blood is as salty as the sea we used to live in!
We *are* history! Everything we've ever been on the way to becoming us, we still are.
I'm made up of the memories of my parents and grandparents, all my ancestors. They're in the way I look, in the color of my hair. And I'm made up of everyone I've ever met who's changed the way I think. So who is "me"?
"Oh, don't cry, girl! The sun is shinin', the birds is singin' and what's past can't be mended, eh?"
Another belated review... but another pick for Terry Pratchett. Goodness, these books are so much fun. I want to quote basically every scene with the Feegles! This book particularly had such a great message woven in, without it being a “message.” I love Tiffany and Miss Level and Granny Weatherwax and the Feegles... so much!💗 📚💗
“AAaargwannawannaaaagongongonaargggaaaaBLOON!” which is the traditional sound of a very small child learning that with balloons, as with life itself, it is important to know when not to let go of the string. The whole point of balloons is to teach small children this.
“Mrs. Earwig tells her girls it‘s about cosmic balances and stars and circles and colors and wands and… and toys, nothing but toys!” She sniffed. “Oh, I daresay they‘re all very well as decoration, somethin‘ nice to look at while you‘re workin‘, somethin‘ for show, but the start and finish, the start and finish, is helpin‘ people when life is on the edge. Even people you don‘t like. Stars is easy, people is hard.”
You can‘t not help people, just because they‘re stupid or forgetful or unpleasant. Everyone‘s poor around here. If I don‘t help them, who will?
Well, that‘s fortuitous! I debated last night if I should use a Hoopla checkout for this, or wait (potentially two weeks) for the Overdrive hold to come in. Glad I waited... barely 14 hours... now I can use that Hoopla checkout for more #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon selections!
Also: why is this marked as book 3?! Is there another book I‘m unaware of?
And now for something completely different.
My energy levels are starting to flag so I'm turning to Sir Terry for some relief but there may still be a nap in my immediate future... #readathon #deweysreadathon @DeweysReadathon
I just completed this on audible and I LOVED it. This is the 2nd installment in the Tiffany Aching series within The Discworld universe. These are perfect middle grade/YA fantasy adventures. They feature a smart, sensible, practical young witch. Her common sense, stubbornness, and courage are her best features. These books are hilarious and heartwarming and are timeless. This series is one I know I will return to again and again.
Remembering Terry for today's #maybookflower. Sorry if I'm posting a lot of Terry Pratchett but he influenced my whole life so much. (picture from his Facebook page)

Oh, goddammit. Then there are also these beautiful UK hardcover gift editions with covers by Paul Kidby and a specially commissioned map of the Chalk on the end pages. Damn you publishers for making new editions of all-time favorites!
Damn you, @TheLondonBookworm for making me aware of these. 😫😫😫😫
Late post to celebrate Terry Pratchett's birthday - the rest of the Tiffany Aching new covers coming out in the UK on May 25. Preordered!! Woot-woot!
