The Fairest Beauty | Melanie Dickerson
post image
Pickpick

I have 2 books I have chosen for the Snow White retelling: The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson and The Sleeper and The Spindle by Neil Gaiman. Just finished listening to the tagged book. It was retold from an interesting perspective. It was very faith-infused which I appreciated but I know not all would, which is why I mention it. #3 #BookSpinBingo #23 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Poinciana #Wintercosy

Lastly, #Fall #Booked2021 Another list with some hard prompts!
#19-Dark Academia: The Secret History
#20-a coming out story: Fun Home
#21-HopePunk: We Set the Dark on Fire
#22-mythology retelling: The Witch‘s Heart
#23-adapted for small screen: Lost Girls
#24-MC/Author with AIDS/about the AIDS epidemic: Nobody Ever Said AIDS

Cinfhen Ohhh, good to know about #SmallScreenAdaptation / I own that book 2mo
Cinfhen I really like all your choices!! Do any crossover with #ReadingAfrica22 2mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen Thankfully, yes! Five Nights Before the Summit works for Zambia (and 3 different Booked2022 prompts!) and Nobody Ever Said AIDS can be used for Botswana, Malawi, or Lesotho. Oh, and the only reason I knew about Lost Girls is that I was looking at all my nonfiction books trying to decide if an author was a journalist or just worked for a magazine or newspaper as something else and saw the Netflix sticker on the cover. 🤣 2mo

Cinfhen Hahaha that sticker saves the day!!! I have the audio 😉ohhh , I‘m gonna check out your book for the AIDS prompt xx thanks 2mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen Just a heads up - I ordered a used copy of Nobody from AbeBooks today because it‘s out of print, my library doesn‘t have it, and it‘s not available on Kindle. 2mo
Cinfhen I‘ll keep that in mind…thanks 2mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Great picks!! 2mo

Book #23 of the year: “Memoirs of a Disgruntled Attorney” by Marc Sherman

Marc and I met on *LiveJournal* back in 2007 or 2008. This book is a collection of parodies, satire, and reflections on life after being diagnosed with Parkinson‘s Disease. It was a quick and mostly funny read. Thanks for writing it, my friend ❤️

First book finished for October and it's one not on my posted TBR lol. Used free space #23 for #BookSpinBingo #Screamathon #Spookoweenreadathon ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This one was riveting, but there are trigger warnings for rape and brutality. Quite different from some of the fantasy novels I've read recently and I enjoyed it! 😁 Can't wait for the sequel.

Book #23 of 2021. I thought it was great & really brought Katherine Parr to life for me. I also really loved the story of her maid, Dot. Beautifully written. Highly recommend!

I have finally finished Vol. 6 in the Outlander series: A Breath of Snow and Ashes! I would listen to it at the end of a month when I had already read my #BS and #DS, so it took awhile. Anyway, it was wonderful. #109 #BookSpinBingo #23 #BFC21 #1 #SERIES2021 #FALLINTOREADING #SERIESSEPTEMBER

Finally got to read book #3 in the Beezus & Ramona series: Ramona the Brave! These stories are so cute and Ramona truly was brave - she was in first grade after all. My great-niece starts first grade tomorrow. I know she will be brave, too. She loves school! #107 #BookSpinBingo #23 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #34 #SERIES2021 #HSREADATHON

Finished listening to this one on my way there and back to a weight loss clinic. That probably doesn‘t matter at all, but this was such a sweet story and I will never hear, “Don‘t you wish you were here?” In the same way again. If you need to lift your spirits, read this book. #100YEARS100BOOKS #96 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #23 #BookSpinBingo #21 #THANKFULATHON #BOOKED2021 (color)
