I found some pacing & timing problems in this second installment of “The Chronicles of St. Mary‘s,” which is especially unfortunate for a book that revolves around time travel. But, I‘m willing to forgive anything because the cast of characters is so, utterly charming. The audio narration‘s fab (it‘s the only reason I‘m hanging on to my Audible subscription), & the historical personages visited, fascinating: Jack the Ripper, & Mary Queen of Scots!

rmaclean4 This is such a fun series!! 8h
monalyisha @rmaclean4 I love it so much. I also hate it because I genuinely did want to cancel Audible. 😅 7h
rmaclean4 Have you tried Scribd? 7h

monalyisha @ramaclean4 No...🤔 Tell me more? 7h
rmaclean4 @monalyisha half the monthly cost and "unlimited" books. They do slow your roll near the end of the month. Lots and lots of audiobooks as well as ebooks. Tons of new releases. The app can be slow to load at times...but that could be that my saved list is ridiculously long. The game changer for me is that you can adjust the reading speed, which is a must have. 7h
monalyisha @rmaclean4 I'll have to check it out! I usually do just fine with the MA & RI library consortiums, along with Hoopla -- but this is the one series that I can't find at the library (given the giant “Only from Audible“ advertisement plastered along its front). Is it weirdly on Scribd? (edited) 7h
rwmg @monalyisha @rmaclean4 The books are on Scribd, but not the audiobook versions. 5h
monalyisha @rwmag Okay. Thanks. I rarely do e-books (unless I'm traveling, or desperate, or Stephanie Burgis neglects to publish a print version of something 😉) but this could still be a helpful resource! (edited) 5h

Breakfast this morning - homemade scones (see my post about how Royal Holiday made me crave scones https://reallifereading.com/2019/11/16/royal-holiday-made-me-do-it-weekendcookin... ) and this interesting time travel read by Mike Chen. Bonus: set in the Bay Area!

I‘ve been slowly making my way through the Outlander books this year. They‘re chunksters so I just read a bit at a time. Book 3 clocks in at 1,300 pages so it‘s taken me awhile, but I finally got sucked in this week at 60%. Season 3 is actually my favorite in the show so naturally I loved this one. From Boston to Scotland, the open seas, Jamaica and finally Georgia, Voyager is aptly named and full of adventure. Looking forward to starting book 4!

CoverToCoverGirl I‘ve been reading this series from the very beginning, early ‘90‘s, it is exceptional. I‘m impatiently awaiting her next one, it‘s been 51/2 years since her last one was published. (edited) 3d

Loved it. I now own the entire series and have read them through a couples times. Anxiously awaiting the next book.

I want to read the series, but wonder if it is worth since I have seen the show? Any opinions would be helpful! #outlander

Kimberlone I would definitely still recommend the first book...it‘s really good especially if the Jamie/Claire romance is your favorite part of the show (edited) 5d
Liatrek I would defiantly recommend reading the books. I love the series but there is just something about book Jaimie and Claire ❤️❤️ 5d
sprainedbrain I adore the books... the show does a really good job of bringing them to life but the books are so rich and detailed. If you enjoy immersing yourself in great big, sprawling books, I definitely recommend. 5d
Mariposa_Bookworm If you are worried about the size of the books, listen to them on audio. The narrator, Davina Porter, is PHENOMENAL!!!! I‘m re-reading them on audio on my commute. Amazing! 5d
Birdsong28 Yes! I watched the TV series and then got the audiobooks as I knew that it would take a while for me to physically read them. As I watched before I read them it helped me to picture certain scenes. Also the audiobooks helped me get through the longer more descriptive passages and things that I thought dragged the story and @Mariposa_Bookworm is correct as Davina Porter makes these books, I hope she is back for the last two! 📚 📖 5d
