Bird Box: A Novel | Josh Malerman

I‘m not a horror fan, but this creepy book was pretty good. Plus it checked the box for “written by a musician “ in the #popsugar challenge. Next up - the movie.

marleed Oh I watched them read inside of 2 days! Let me know what you think of the book after watching the movie. I have 2 thoughts but will hold off until you finish both! 2mo
Mdargusch @marleed I finished both. I like them both but they were so different. 2mo
marleed I liked them both too. Like picking different paths in virtual options. I preferred the wisdom of kids essentially blinded from birth in the book. I much preferred the bad sadness of Sandra Bullock in the movie. 2mo

The Witch's Boy | Kelly Barnhill

Read for Children's Literature class. I really appreciated the world-building in this middle-grade novel; the way in which the magic was presented as an enticing, corrupting force was interesting. Strong female characters in Sister Witch, the Queen, and Aine herself are compelling. I just feel like the pacing was a little bit slow; it picked up once Ned and Aine met.

Macbeth | William Shakespeare
Pickpick

For JHU project. This is the first time I've read this since teaching it at high school, and I'm surprised by how much of the soliloquies I remember. Also, since I researched all of Leverage the past few months, now I hear Lady Macbeth in Gina Bellman's voice!

My first Litsy post. 💕 Using BORN FREE as my first book for #MayScavengerHunt. Author born on my birthday (January 20th); more than 300 pages; a character dies; made into a movie; and written by an author from different country. #MayMadness @Clwojick @RadicalReader @TheReadingMermaid

Clwojick That sounds like a great book! I‘ll have to check it out ♥️ 5mo

Lady_Tigana_20 @Clwojick, not sure if you have ever heard of Christian the lion. There was a book and a famous video about his reunion with former owners. He was bought at Harrods in late 60s and eventually the owners decided he needed to go back to Africa. Joy Adamson‘s ex-husband, George, taught him how to survive in African wild. He even had his own pride. Videos are on YouTube. I read the book about Christian, but I have only ever seen the movie about Elsa. 5mo

Buechersuechtling Welcome @Lady_Tigana_20 to this warm-hearted bookish network. I really love it here and soon got kind of addicted. As I started here I was thinking about opening my own blog but hesitated because I knew this would cost time that I could not spend reading. Additionally there was the GDPR coming up … As I then discovered @Litsy I found out that it was exactly what I was looking for: A reading log with short reviews and communication with others. 5mo

The War that Saved My Life | Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
Pickpick

I was not expecting to be as moved as I was at this book. I thought it was a great description of Ada's big feelings of anxiety at new changes, frustration at her own ignorance of the world, and resentment at her mother confirming what she already knew: her mother didn't care about her. Juxtaposing all this against WW2 England just made the conflict-and it's resolution-even more vivid.

Girls' Night Out | Liz Fenton, Lisa Steinke

Mehso-so

Meh. As a quick brain candy read this was satisfactory. The mystery was fairly predictable although there were a few layers by the end. I found two of the three characters pretty irritating, especially Ashley. There were some weird writing quirks that bugged me, although they came and went so I wonder if the authors were alternating writing chapters. Filled 2 female authors prompt for #popsugar.
