Winnie the Pooh | A.A. Milne

Book #51: Winnie-the-Pooh is one of those stories that had pervaded my childhood. From the movies to the cartoon series, I was (and still am) absolutely in love with Pooh Bear, despite never having read the books. And I am sure that the reason this is on the BBC 100 Greatest Books (which is basically a popularity vote on books) is because of the...

Book #51 for my year & this one has been highly recommended and on my TBR for a very long time. I only started reading YA books the last year and a half and I‘ve missed out on such amazing adventures. Adult murder/mystery is still my all time favorite genre but YA is quickly becoming a top second 💜

Caffeinated_Reader Oh now I can see why it comes with such high recommendations. It‘s spectacularly magical. I absolutely adore Lila she‘s a total badass. Kell is exactly the brooding antihero you need in a character. I‘d totally fall for him lol can‘t wait to read the rest of the series. 3mo

Did this as an audio. I wasn‘t thrilled about the reader but he wasn‘t bad either. Some parts I zoned out on but I did learn a lot from it. Did this for the #ATY2019 challenge - prompt #51 A book published in 2019.

#51 "He's got a heart of cold!"
In Chicago things were never this boring. But now that Greta has moved with her aunt to Sherpia on the tip of the Arctic Circle, things are really super boring. There's nothing to do out here. And the nights are really creepy. And what is with all those strange snowmen outside every house? The ones with the scars on their faces. What is their story?

rwmg Who keeps pairing books I love together and books I dislike/am indifferent to together? 13mo
MrBook @rwmg 😂👏🏻🙌🏻 All 100 titles were placed in a little pail and randomly drawn. Now that we're on Round 2, a little over half of these titles already won their first bracket. The others were automatically placed on a Round 2 bracket (a by, or a pass) to account for the eventual odd number of participants that would result. (I spread them out in the first rounds instead of the latter ones to avoid confusion.) The bracket chart will be shared soon. 13mo

Andrew65 Not read either of these! And go Book Thief! 13mo
Amiable "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" is one of the best books EVER and why can't I cast 1,000 votes for it ... 13mo
Lizpixie Clan of the cave bear was the first historical fiction I‘d ever read, not just historic but prehistoric! Ayla & Creb still have a place in this readers heart. 13mo

2017 #51 fantasy audio I didn't enjoy this one as much. Not because there was anything wrong but because I was frustrated with the characters. Again not in the writing but because the writing was so good I wanted to climb into the book and smack some non colonial sense into the characters. +

I heard about this on Book Riot's Get Booked podcast (#51-mysteries and thrillers). It was fast-paced and smart, an entertaining read!
