I love this book. Neil Gaiman‘s voice is perfect for audiobooks too.
There was a 2nd and Charles right across from our hotel... It had to happen 😬
@ScientistSam Wow! Thank you so much for these lovely swap goodies! All of these books sound great. The socks are awesome and [nerd alert 😉] I am so psyched about the New York Public Library tote. Love the sticker, pin, and bookmark, too! Thank you so much! ❤️ And sorry for the late post, I just got home from work 🙄 #summersantagoespostal
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Gaiman is a talented storyteller and this Audible version with a fabulous full cast really brings the book to life. There are a few paths I would have liked to see tread upon and explored and a few unanswered questions answered, but it was an enjoyable story with worthwhile characters that I felt enough about to have shed a tear or two.
Bonus—a short chapter at the end where Gaiman explains the backstory of how this book came to be.
Second book on CD I‘ve finished in my car this year. I got tired with the same music now I‘m listening to books. I had already read this book but listening to it being read by the majestic voice of Neil made the story come alive! Next thing I need is the graphic novel. There is one right ?
Went to the spring sale at Bedrock City Comics today and picked up these goodies! Got the Gaiman/Riddell trio for only $13! Somehow I missed that there were American Gods Pop figures. Unfortunately they didn't have Wednesday, or I would have bought him too.
My kids, and I, just finished listening to this wonderful story. They loved it as much as I did!
Today‘s prompt is #siblings, and it happens to be my brother‘s birthday. He‘s not much of a reader but he introduced me to the world of Harry Potter(books, not the movie series). 💫⚡️
He totally gets my love for books. The tagged book was a gift from him. 💙
He has aptly titled that pic ‘Foie Gras‘. (1995) 😁
I miss him so much! 💕
My wifi currently isn‘t working so i went back to an old favorite to keep me company. It‘s been a while since i last read the graveyard book and having it read to me by #papaG himself certainly didn‘t subtract from the joys of a cemeterial childhood 😍
1. Almost finished listening to the tagged.
2. I watched the Crimes of Grindlewald & The House With a Clock in Its Walls on the flight back from DC.
3. hot tea
1. Any day I can read
2. Yo-Yo Ma, Chris Botti, Sean Jones, Dolly Parton, Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ella Fitzgerald, Wynton Marsalis, Ólafur Arnalds, Jean-Yves Thibaudet...
3. Sadly, work, which gets in the way of #1
4. Almost finished with the audio version of the tagged
Thanks @olivia.ferz for the tag. ☺️
2. I am working on moving to Italy 🇮🇹 in the next 3-5 years. Other than that, I‘d love to live in Ireland. 🇮🇪
3. A graveyard mostly
4. The great thing about the US is we‘ve adopted (& then “Americanized”) food from most every culture. But I grew up in the south, which is associated with fried foods & BBQ.
5. 😘😘😘 to all!
"Rich man, poor man, come away.
Come to dance the Macabray.
Time to work and time to play,
Time to dance the Macabray.
One and all will hear and stay
Come and dance the Macabray.
Step and turn, and walk and stay,
Now we dance the Macabray."

I could listen to Neil Gaiman read anything. I finished this lovely puzzle last night (Day & Night by Buffalo) while listening to the tagged. I simply love the colors.
I started this one this morning and I am utterly enchanted. Only 30 minutes in and all I can think is how did I not read Neil Gaiman sooner?!?
I just realized, as I was cleaning, that I never shared my three most recent Goodwill book hauls. Our Goodwill‘s book selection has been on point lately.👌🏼 These will probably all be packed away soon but I cannot WAIT until we‘re in the new house & our library is set up.😍📚 #goodwillfinds #bookhaul #allthisforlessthan20bucks #bargainslut
I‘m excited for Spring, but I wish we could do Halloween twice a year...
Thank you to my person @laur89 for the #happilyeverafterswap
I have always wanted to give Niel Gaiman a try, your choices are such a twist!! You have added to my bag collection! Never had these barkthins before. And what a great combo as a first try. Might have started a addiction!!!
Thank you again to @Chrissyreadit for this wonderful swap idea. Maybe make it annual lol!
Onto my next reading adventure! Who else loves Neil Gaiman?! 🌟🌟
I finally finished this novel after what seems like forever lol. My schedule was just so busy I didn't have time to read. One thing I love about Neil Gaiman's novels is that he has such dark environments but everything still seems so light. I don't know how he does it. I really enjoyed the story of Bod and his very unique life living in a graveyard being raised by ghosts. The life he loves is unique, a little lonely but still filled with love.
Hope you can read this haha. Was tagged by @kaye to do a #20thingsaboutme thingy so here are my 20 things 😊
One thing I didn't put was my favorite genre mostly because I read pretty much everything lol
I realize that it cut off a line but The Good Earth was the first nice my mother bought me. I think I was 13.
I'm not sure who all to tag, so if you're interested in participating please do!
4/5 for me this wasn't the biggest page turner, but a charming book. Liked the premise of the book, a living boy giving the powers of the dead and living in a graveyard.
I feel the title of this book indicates that we should just bury it and forget about it. Okay, I‘m being a bit dramatic but Neil Gaiman is so frustrating. The beginning of this book was strong and got me really excited but in the end it fell flat. The story never really felt like it developed and I was always wanting more. It was so close to being good but ended up being meehhh ☹️🤷🏼♀️
I had forgotten just how much I adore reading Neil Gaiman. My last few experiences with his writing were ebooks and audiobooks, which in my opinion don‘t do him justice.
This was actually on my Halloween reading list but I only just got to it now.
