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

Meagan Spooner as well as the narrator on this audiobook version outdid themselves! This was exciting, full of adventure and my kind of romance. “Long live Robin Hood!” #48 #BFC22 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE RobinHood #20in4 #Pantone2022Colour QuietShade/Amazon #Hikeathonreads #TheRoyalReadathon

I finished it!!! Finally! This is definitely #AlmostAChunkster 640 pages of the most dysfunctional family ever. They were always plotting against each other and they were full of themselves. Anyway I‘m done with it and glad of it. #14 #BookSpin #9 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #AClassicAMonth #sharreadathon #KicktheSlump #20in4 #Pantone2022 Daffodil #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #WintersRespite #TheRoyalReadathon

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. On to the next! #12 #BookSpin #3 #AlmostAChunksterChallenge #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #BOOKED2022 #SERIES2022 #READYOURSHELF #FabulousFebruary #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Glacier Lake #WintersRespite #TheRoyalReadathon

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

Loved this book! It reminded me of Maureen Johnson‘s books, but better. And I really liked the Truly Devious Trilogy! Maybe it‘s because I just finished this one? I don‘t know. Anyway it‘s really good! And now I have another series to read!!! #106 #BookSpinBingo #9 and a BINGO! #SERIES2021 #THEROYALREADATHON Death #HSREADATHON #8 #TAISandTALESforADULTS #33

This book was ridiculously funny. I thought I misread when I saw “flying houses”, but no, that was correct. And the etiquette of the ladies of the Society was just too much. Anyway, it will be on it‘s way to you very soon, Sarah! #105 #BookSpinBingo #1 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #32 #THEROYALREADATHON - GusGus a cheesy book #HSREADATHON #7

Laughterhp Glad you liked it! 9mo
TheAromaofBooks Yay!! I'm looking forward to this one. I'm also glad everyone else picked solid reads since I thought mine wasn't that great 😂 9mo

Norse Mythology | Neil Gaiman

Just finished listening to the audiobook version of this book. How I enjoy listening to Neil Gaiman! And, of all the Marvel characters, Thor is my favorite. The description of the book said he was powerful but not the brightest, but I enjoy his adventures anyway. And Loki - what a mischief-maker! As you can tell, I really enjoyed this book! #104 #BookSpinBingo 24 #BFC21 #6 #TAILSandTSLESforADULTS #31 #THEROYALREADATHON HSREADATHON

I liked this book. It made me laugh and nearly made me cry. I thought the characters were endearing and I was rooting for them. Casey McQuiston wanted to give us “a spark of joy and hope” and she did! #103 #BookSpinBingo #10 #BFC21 #5 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #30 #THEROYALREADATHON - Sidekicks - HerHer #HSREADATHON
