Spin the Dawn | Elizabeth Lim

Pickpick

This is the first book in the Blood of Stars series by Elizabeth Lim. I liked that the heroine (pretending to be her brother) was a seamstress and made beautiful garments with her grandmother‘s magic scissors. There‘s also an enchanter who discovers her secret. I am anxious to read Book #2! #52 #BookSpin #25 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #BOOKED2022 set in China #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE Mulan #SERIES2022 #Pantone2022Colour BlueberrySpicyMustard #TheRoyalReadathon

The Wild Robot | Peter Brown

Read the first of these 2 books for a Nature read for #Hikeathon and HAD to read the sequel to find out what happened to ROZ, the Wild Robot! The story fed the geeky part of my brain and also warmed the mother in me. That‘s all I will say, but you should listen/read these. The narrator was fantastic, too. #46 & #47 #BookSpin #24 & #25 #BFC22 #SERIES2022 #Pantone2022Colour Loden Frost & Chiseled Stone #Hikeathon #MiddleGradeReads

Letters to the Lost | Brigid Kemmerer
post image
Pickpick

I‘m trying to read as much of Brigid Kemmerer‘s backlist as I can. How does she get teenagers so well. This is a great story - two young people, a guy and a girl, are suffering from the loss of someone dear to them, blaming themselves, but they find each other - not in person - but through letters, then emails. It really touched my heart. It‘s so good. #45 #BookSpin #21 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #SERIES2022 #Pantone2022 Blueberry #Hikeathonreads

I have been wanting to read this series since last year and now I have finally started. I listened to this one on audio and it was great. It would make a very family-friendly movie. The things that happened just made me laugh. Looking forward to #2. #30 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #SERIES2022 #Buzzwordathon #20in4 #Pantone2022Colour Snow White #MGMarchThroughTime #MiddleGradeMarch

My local library has the 2nd book on the shelf so I am going to check it out just to see what it looks like. #21 #BookSpin #21 #AlmostAChunkster (473 pages) #BFC22 #SERIES2022 #Buzzwordathon #MarvellousMarch #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Dahlia #Galaxyathon

What a delightful listen this was! Being of a certain age although I don‘t consider myself THAT old, I commiserated with Veronica as I strive to make my days count for something. She‘s curmudgeonly but wonderful. You will love her - and her penguins! #15 #BookSpin #15 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #SERIES2022 #Buzzwordathon #READYOURSHELF #sharreadathon #KicktheSlump #20in4 #Pantone2022 Cascade #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #WintersRespite

The Merchant's Daughter | Melanie Dickerson

Finished this one yesterday - a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Her family was nasty and wanted to make her marry Tom the Bailiff so they didn‘t have to do any work. She indentured herself to the “beast” character and discovered many ways the Lord was looking out for her. I loved it. Plan to read more. #13 #BookSpin #24 #BFC22 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #SERIES2022 #sharreadathon #KicktheSlump #Pantone2022 Poppyseed #WintersRespite #TheRoyalReadathon

Allylu @LatrelWhite How lucky you are! I really enjoy her books. 🍀📚😊 3mo
LatrelWhite @Allylu I need to see what else she‘s written I‘ve read several of her books. I too enjoy them☺️ 3mo
Allylu @LatrelWhite There are 11 books in her Haggenheim series. I know I didn't need to start another series, but oh well. They are all retellings of fairytales. I'm reading some of them for the #FairytaleChallenge. 3mo

This is the second book in The Seven Sisters series by Lucinda Riley. It follows Ali as she deals with her father‘s death and other things which lead her to find out about her true heritage. It was a very touching story and I loved it.

Just finished Bookish and the Beast! It was cute. Loved Rosie. She‘s so spunky and real. Setting this fairytale in a contemporary place & time is refreshing. #10 (9 were audiobooks - I have to read more print books!) #BookSpin #4 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #SERIES2022 (finished this one) #Buzzwordathon July #READYOURSHELFCHALLENGE June #Pantone2022ColourChallenge CoralRose #WintersRespite #TheRoyalReadathon Thomas O‘Malley
