Heroine Complex | Sarah Kuhn

Pickpick

Evie is given an unwanted promotion when she needs to pretend to be Aveda Jupiter, San Francisco‘s only superhero, while Aveda recovers from an injury. No sweat, if only the invading demons would stop evolving, her sister would follow directions, & her grumpy coworker stopped looking so hot.

This was so much fun! Made me LOL! A love letter to pop culture & superheroes, but also about identity, family, emotional honesty, & explosions. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

ozma.of.oz @WanderingBookaneer I‘ll be dropping this off at the post office this afternoon! Sorry it‘s late! ❤️ ETA: It‘s on the way! Should be there by Friday! (edited) 1w

Quarantine is over, negative tests have been acquired, and that means Litsy packages are on the way! I felt like Santa Claus, carrying an enormous bag of packages to put in the mail!

Second Hand Curses | Drew Hayes

Pickpick

What to do when your fairy tale isn‘t going the way you want? Hire the Bastard Champions. For the right price, Jack, and his companions Frank and Marie, are just the scoundrels to get you out of trouble.

This is a romp where scoundrels dip into other fairy tales, while also pursuing their own goals. Fun characters, although Frank and Marie are my faves. I want to know more about the Narrative, so I hope there‘s going to be a sequel. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

ozma.of.oz #GroupQ #Round13 #LMPBC @WanderingBookaneer this will go into the mail as soon as quarantine is over! ❤️ 2mo

I finally caught up on the Of Slippers and Spindles podcast, which discusses fairy tale retellings. And they‘re doing Jack and the Beanstalk this month. The discussions of different adaptations reminded me of how much I liked the tagged book.

So #LMPBC #GroupQ we‘re doing Second Hand Curses by Drew Hayes for my quirky fantasy pick. I listened to it as an audiobook when it came out four years ago, and I loved it. I hope you all enjoy it too! 💚

Chrissyreadit I had no idea this podcast existed!!! I‘m so excited- retellings are one of my favorite (sub) genres. 3mo
LibrarianRyan Cool beans 3mo
ozma.of.oz @Chrissyreadit It‘s a great podcast, and I highly recommend it! https://www.stitcher.com/show/of-slippers-and-spindles 3mo

Here goes! #GroupQ

1 Detective Spratt can eat no fat & must investigate when Humpty Dumpty‘s fall hints at foul play.
2 Princess Cimorene has decided she doesn‘t want to be a proper princess, thanks, and runs off to join a dragon.
3 In a world where tourists pay to have a Grand Fantasy Quest, the newest Dark Lord just wants to go home.
4 What if Cinderella didn‘t want to marry the prince? Enter the Rogues & their efforts to disrupt fairy tales.

LibrarianRyan These all look fun. I think I read dealing with dragons but it was so long ago I can‘t be sure. 3mo
WanderingBookaneer These all sound good and I haven‘t read any of them. 3mo
Kenyazero That Derkholm description (which is the only one of these I've read) is excellent! 3mo

The Tough Guide to Fantasyland | Diana Wynne Jones

Listen up #LMPBC #GroupQ ! I‘ve currently got 12 books I‘m trying to narrow down before I present a selection for y‘all to look at. In the meantime, I want to rec a book.

When I saw quirky fantasy, this was the first book I thought of. I decided against it, mostly because it‘s not actually a story. But it is hilarious and worth a look. Styled as a tour guide book for a High Fantasy world, everything is lovingly made fun of. And it is a delight.

LibrarianRyan I've seen it and i agree! 3mo
LauraBeth You had me at hilarious 3mo

LibrarianRyan I would so reread the phantom toll booth. So so so much. And it‘s such a perfect t fit. 3mo
LauraBeth @LibrarianRyan it‘s one of those books that has always managed to escape me somehow and I‘d love to finally read it! 3mo
ozma.of.oz I‘ve read The Rest of Us Just Live Here, Every Heart a Doorway, and The Gilded Wolves and loved them all and would be down for a reread! The rest look fun and I‘ve got The Midnight Library on my TBR! 3mo

WanderingBookaneer I‘ve read Stays of Paris and Gilded Wolves, but I‘d read any on these. 3mo
mrsmarch Non-group member opinion here, I read A Winter's Promise this year and it's gooood. Also, The Phantom Tollbooth is such a beautiful book. 3mo
LibrarianRyan Ello,

Just checking in to see if you picked a book. I am just updating my notes and reading list.

These are my choices. There was one more book, but @ozma.of.oz had already read it so I covered it with the TBR sticker.

What say you?

LibrarianRyan I have HCS. Haven‘t read it yet but I have it. Johannesburg has been on my TBR but I have not been able to find a copy of book 1. But any are good to me. 3mo
LauraBeth I‘ve been wanting to read HCS! 3mo
ozma.of.oz I‘m curious what the covered book was! Anyway, I adore both HCS and Good Omens and would be 110% down to reread both. And The Future of Another Timeline has been on my TBR for months now! I am so excited for this round! 3mo
carlthecattt I‘ve read HCS and loved it! Haven‘t read any of the others :) 3mo
LibrarianRyan Again, I know you have been busy. Ello, just checkin in. Did you pick a book? I am just updating my lists so I don't forget what goes with who. 3mo
WanderingBookaneer @LibrarianRyan I thought I had Johannes Cabral, but I can‘t find it so I decided on 3mo
