I don‘t think this one quite lived up to the hype for me, but I enjoyed it. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had read it as a kid, but better late than never, right?

I remember, as a kid, taking the movie out from the library repeatedly. I never got more than 15-20 minutes in because I'd start sobbing at the idea of the last, lonely unicorn. My mom finally told me I wasn't allowed to borrow it anymore. 🙃

I didn't realize when I borrowed the book that it was the graphic novel, but in the end I'm so glad. Beautiful artwork to tell a beautiful tale.

And this was my #BookSpin for this month! @TheAromaofBooks

Soubhiville I love this novel too. I also would cry during the movie, but loved it anyway 🙂. 12mo
Blerdgal_Fenix One of my childhood faves 12mo
Cheshirecat913 One of my favorites too! 12mo
TheAromaofBooks Oooo I bet this would translate so well into a graphic novel!! I'll have to check it out!! 12mo

I ordered this book (specifically the 40th anniversary edition) from eBay for my daughter's birthday recently. The seller sent me the current edition I could have bought for cheaper on Amazon. 😡 Do any of you wonderful Littens know where I could get my hands on this version, for a reasonable price? I've been Googling and trolling eBay for a month now, but I can't find it. My daughter is a super fan and I would really love to get this for her. TIA

GondorGirl Maybe try AbeBooks? 1y
LittlePixels @GondorGirl Thanks! I found another one on eBay yesterday. Keeping my fingers crossed that they actually send the right edition this time! 🤞 1y

Day 6: #WarmColors
These are my favorite warm colored covers I own. I just got The BloodPrint two months ago, so I haven‘t read it yet. And The Last Unicorn I have had for a while now but still not read it. I do love the cartoon though, that‘s actually how my love originally came about for the story. My mother introduced me (and my sisters) to it. Hopefully I will get around to reading it soon.
#colormepretty

Sunraven Ooh, thanks for the reminder. I keep meaning to read The Last Unicorn, too. Finally got around to reading The Neverending Story in the past few years on the quest to read all the books that inspired childhood favorite movies... 3y
Sweetkokoro @sunraven You are so very welcome. And actually The Neverending Story is on my TBR still, another old childhood movie classic that I have yet to read. 3y
BooknerdsLife Beautiful photo 😍💜 3y
Sunraven @Sweetkokoro: Neverending Story is definitely very different as a book, but I still enjoyed it. In fact, maybe I‘ll re-read it sometime soon to refresh my memory, haha. 3y

My extremely old ratty tatty copy of the last unicorn. It was old and tattered when I purchased it 15 years ago. I don‘t read a lot of pure fantasy preferring PNR and urban fantasy but I really loved this story.

😏 This got a resounding “no” from both kids as a read aloud after I read the blurb. I‘m not surprised really because fantasy isn‘t something they typically go for, but I thought I‘d try since people seem to love it. However, son has expressed willingness to try HP, so there‘s that!

JanuarieTimewalker13 I‘m not a big fantasy person and I enjoyed this one...plus it doesn‘t drag on, and on, bc it‘s a short book...it worked for me. 4y
Tamra @JanuarieTimewalker13 it might work for me, just not for them. Shoot. 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa It‘s a tough one, I read it after I watched the cartoon as a kid. But it‘s a bit sad, which makes it tough even if I‘ll always have nostalgic memories there. But yay for HP! 4y

JanuarieTimewalker13 Oh, well, you can read it on your own one day! 4y
Chittavrtti It‘s a quest story, more fairy tale than ,what I consider, true fantasy. The scene in the tower with the talking skull is hilarious. The Red Bull is scarier in the reading than in the film. 4y
Tamra @Chittavrtti I‘m not very certain about the genre lines. 🤔 4y

I‘m not sure how many times I‘ve read this old favorite. I love it every single time. This was the book I chose for my long term postal bookclub. In reading through the notebook I was surprised how many hadn‘t heard of the book or movie! I always assumed it was just as well known as LOTR or Harry Potter! In my family it‘s as loved as The Wizard of Oz!

I‘m glad to have been able to share it with so many, and happy most enjoyed reading it!

TheKidUpstairs I loved this movie as a kid (I seem to remember crying a lot), but haven't watched it in ages. And I've never read the book. I'll have to remedy that! 4y

My #OwlPost book has returned home! It‘s been over a year (2 years? Help me out, I don‘t remember...) and it has traveled the country. I‘m going to reread it, starting tonight, before I read the journal with all of your notes. This postal bookclub has been so much fun.

Holly, thank you for including D‘Arc and the bookmarks 😊. I hope you‘ve gotten great news.

I hope all of the books are accounted for and almost home!

DivineDiana Yay! We‘ll see! I remember reading your choice! Thank you! 4y

Soubhiville @LibrarianRyan which group are you in? I have to say, the larger groups seem to almost always run into problems. I think the #CoverToCover group is the only one which hasn‘t had any real issues. The smaller 4 person groups seem to work out much better. Maybe because of shorter commitment? 4y
Soubhiville @ElizabethAndino I‘m so glad to hear that! I‘m going to try to resist looking in the journal until I finish my reread. I can‘t wait to see what everyone thought though! 4y
CareBear I‘m so glad it made it home safely! It was one of my favorites too. 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz Wowwww! How come it took 2 yrs to get back to you? How does this work? If you don't mind me asking...Your caption has made me really intrigued! 4y
Soubhiville @Jee_HookedOnBookz our postal club had around 20 members. Each person chose a book and a journal for notes to be recorded by other members. The books traveled every month one spot around a huge circle, so after about 20 months, my book has visited 20 readers to be read and discussed. And it just made it back home 😊 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz Wowwwwww!!!! That's way tooooo cool!!!! Is there like a next round? Or it's already closed to 20 members? 4y
Hooked_on_books You‘re welcome! I think it was 2.5 years ago that we started. Time flies, eh? We are still in negotiations for the property, but I‘m pretty sure it‘s going to happen. 4y
LibrarianRyan @Soubhiville it‘s not owlpost but my #travelingbook. A litten who is frequently on will not send the book. She has told me at least 6 times in the last 9 months that she is going to send it. And post proof. I used to get told “I‘m sick” which I totally forgive it happens. Now I‘m told “I have no money” but then she posts pretty big hook hauls of new hot titles. It‘s frustrating. 🤬 4y
Soubhiville @Jee_HookedOnBookz you have to join a group at the beginning. This one is just ending. 4y
Soubhiville @Jee_HookedOnBookz I‘d recommend looking for #lmpbc- Litsy Markup Postal Book Club. I think those are groups of 4 people, which is way more manageable and only lasts 4 months. You‘ll see folks looking for new members pretty regularly that way. As far as the larger groups go, there tend to be a lot of issues with a commitment that long. I started several big groups, but I won‘t be doing it again for that reason. 4y
wen4blu It was a great choice! 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Soubhiville thank you so much for the detailed info, Soubhi! I'll look for #lmpbc Coz I really like this idea of sharing notes and thoughts on the same book and then sending it all back to the original sender/owner of the book! ❤️❤️❤️ 4y
LazyDays @Jee_HookedOnBookz @suvata usually does the sign ups for #LMPBC we are in the last month. So if she decides to do it again, it may ne soon 4y

My #bookclub read this last month and it was my second time reading it. It‘s a thoroughly excellent grown up fairytale about a unicorn, some misfits, a greedy king, and the prince who loves her. Many people have experienced this as an animated film (which I also love!) but the book goes deeper with more complicated themes. My only quibble is that the narrative style is occasionally just a bit too distancing.
