I Am Legend | Richard Matheson
post image

#WildCreatures from my reading list. One read. One tbr.

#NoFemmeber @Billypar @Cinfhen

Billypar That I Am Legend cover is downright scary! 😨 These are two more where I saw the films but never read the books 😳 4y
Blueberry @Billypar The book and movie are very very different. 4y
MaleficentBookDragon Matheson is one of my favorite authors. He does scary/creepy so well. My fav is 4y

Were the Rosenbergs really spies or were they set up by Ethel‘s brother, who offered compelling testimony against them?

I don‘t know much about the Rosenbergs but hopefully one day I‘ll read this book and find out!

#wildcreatures #nofemmeber

Billypar I don't know many of the details behind their story, and never heard this theory! 4y
Cinfhen Same @Billypar but it is very interesting! Was this a #BookOutlet purchase, Steph!?! I recently picked a fictionalized story about the Rosenberg‘s 4y
Reviewsbylola 90% sure it was. 😂 @Cinfhen Also, I‘ve read the book you tagged. I thought it was just ok. (edited) 4y

The Corfu Trilogy | Gerald Durrell
post image

Gerald Durrell writes about #WildCreatures (his odd family included) in such a wonderfully witty and nostalgic way. The Corfu Trilogy is one of my favourite “comfort” reads. ❤️


saresmoore Phew, I stacked that so fast, I think I pulled a thumb muscle. 4y
Jerdencon We are big fans of the tv show - still need to read the books! 4y
LauraBeth I have wanted to read these for so many years. 😀 Your endorsement is going to make me finally get to them! 4y

Aimeesue My Family and Other Animals is one of my favorites. That fight on the ceiling! 4y
Aims42 I was JUST looking up his series on Goodreads yesterday ‼️‼️ Maybe this is a sign I should read him? 🤔#ReaderLogic 4y
Billypar Not on my radar, but curious to try! 4y
Cinfhen It‘s always been on my radar but I‘ve never picked them up!!! I love all the witty titles (edited) 4y
batsy I need to read this! Love these covers 😍 4y
BookNAround I loved the first two of these and need to get to the third! 4y
LeahBergen @saresmoore 😂😂 I think you‘ll like his portrayal of his brother, Larry (he who became the uber-literary Lawrence Durrell, writer of the Alexandria Quartet). He‘s this irritatingly snobby older brother, always pecking away at his typewriter and yelling at Gerry. 4y
LeahBergen @Jerdencon They‘re wonderful! I‘ve been enjoying the show, too. Be forewarned, though - the books are much more from Gerry‘s point of view and about his animals. 4y
LeahBergen @LauraBeth I think you‘ll like them! They‘re sweet and a bit silly (and would make for a good palate cleanser between tougher reads). 😘 4y
LeahBergen @Aimeesue 😆😆 4y
LeahBergen @Aims42 It IS a sign! 😆😆 4y
LeahBergen @Billypar @Cinfhen I hope you give the first one a try some day. They are a strange mix of animal science and obnoxious family anecdotes. 😆 4y
LeahBergen @batsy I think you‘d appreciate the silliness of it. 😆 4y
LeahBergen @BookNAround The third isn‘t quite as a good as the others but I‘d read anything just to hear more about that family! 4y
DeborahSmall Need to read these x 4y

There are lots of #wildcreatures in Angela Carter's Bloody Chamber and only some of them are animals... #NoFemmeBer @Cinfhen @Billypar

LeahBergen I must try Angela Carter one of these days. 🤔 4y
Billypar My current read is The Tiger's Wife - it might not have anything to do with this story, but I am curious... 4y
Cinfhen I agree @LeahBergen I‘m oddly drawn to this book 😜 #stacked Thanks for posting & sharing @Moray_Reads 4y

Moray_Reads @Billypar I've read the Tiger's Wife and never made the connection. This one is a telling of Beauty and the Beast 4y
Moray_Reads @LeahBergen @Cinfhen Highly recommended. As is the audiobook narrated by Richard Armitage 4y
batsy Ooh, great pick 💜 This is one of my faves @LeahBergen @Cinfhen hope you give it a try :) 4y

These #WildCreatures/#WildeCreatures were the first I could think of.

The Wilde men love strong and independent woman. The Wilde women/girls are allowed to grow into strong women. And there's Lady Knowe who's the kind of aunt everybody wishes to have.

DAY 15: There are some enigmatic #wildcreatures in Area X. Artist Eric Nyquist designed the stunning covers and inside flaps (pictured) of these editions. *swoon*

Unfortunately, I wound up not loving this trilogy. 😕


thereadingowlvina Same here. It was just ok for me 😐 4y
britt_brooke @thereadingowlvina I expected more from the ending. 4y
Cathythoughts Excellent pick 👍🏻 4y

Leftcoastzen I still haven‘t read book 3. 4y
britt_brooke @Leftcoastzen It was pretty underwhelming. 4y
Cinfhen It‘s ok, they are soooo pretty, who cares if the books suck?!?!!!! 4y
britt_brooke @Cinfhen 😆 Exactly! It‘s why I still have them. 4y
LittlePixels Same here. I *loved* Borne, so went back to read this, but didn't get past the first book. Meh. 4y
britt_brooke @LittlePixels I haven‘t read Borne yet, but I will at some point. Happy to know you liked that one! 4y
Billypar I do want to give them a try- at least they're short, so it's a small time investment! 4y
britt_brooke @Billypar They‘re very weird and pretty entertaining, so definitely worth a try! I liked the first two. It was the third that was kind of a disappointment. 4y
Billypar Oh ok- good to know! 4y

My Family and Other Animals | Gerald Durrell, Jocelyn Potter
post image

A story of Gerald Durrell when he was 10 years old, and his family‘s four-year migration from England to Corfu in the 1930s. There he developed his passion for wildlife, local flora and fauna, and animals play an important part in the tale. Still on my #tbr.

#NoFemmeber #wildcreatures

Cinfhen I‘ve seen this memoir/ travelogue before...it sounds really fascinating. And I love the title!!! 4y
Samplergal I loved this. It‘s a great series on BBC( I think) 4y
LeahBergen Oh, I was going to pick this for today‘s prompt, too. One of my favourites! 😍😍 4y
CarolynM I've never read it either, but I have really enjoyed the TV series. 4y
Billypar Must be fun to see a bunch of animals thrown into family dynamics and witness the results ☺️ 4y
