Ramona and Her Father | Beverly Cleary
post image
Pickpick

Just finished listening to Stockard Channing narrate Ramona and Her Father. She does a great job telling the story. Reading this made me wonder at the end if the children in our church‘s Christmas Pageant felt the way Ramona felt about it. I hope they did! #8 #BookSpinBingo #3 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #JUMPSTART2022 #SERIES2022 #20in4 #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Popcorn #Wintercosy

I had to read this book in the Once Upon A Con series before I read Bookish and The Beast. I‘m glad I did. They were cleverly tied together, and I‘m sure Bookish… will be, too. Truly entertaining for this Fangirl, with all its name dropping. I had a blast reading it and can‘t wait to read the next one! #7 #BookSpinBingo #25 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #SERIES2022 #20in4 #Pantone2022ColoutChallenge SuperSonic #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #Wintercosy

Clwojick Ohh! Thanks for the reminder! I read the first one but never finished the series. 💖 8mo

Well that was GREAT! Eerie is the best word for it; I feel like I've felt so many emotions reading this, especially because of all the twists that I just wasn't expecting! I'm still on the edge of my seat and I've finished it, crikey

I was so invested in the heroine too and I loved how it got me thinking about themes like perception, time etc

Shit, Actually | Lindy West

Pickpick

16/150 First off, The Fugitive isn't the greatest movie ever. EVERYONE know that Raiders of the Lost Ark is THE greatest movie that all others should be judged against.
That being said, I found West to be insanely funny, and her reviews were the perfect blend of humor and biting social commentary. 4📽📽📽📽

15/150 An interesting discussion on how technological advances and changing social norms have affected the evolution of mankind. While this book is full of fascinating information, plus tips and suggestions to avoid the biggest pitfalls of current societal changes, I recommend getting it in print form. The authors are fine writers and scientist, but as narrators, they leave much to be desired. Their delivery is a bit monotone. 3 🐒🐒🐒 1/2

wanderinglynn Sounds interesting. 8mo
Clwojick Great job! 8mo

Mehso-so

14/150 I'm sorry to say this book never came together for me. Don BelPatri can't remember his past, and he's being hunted by a sinister energy company that he might have worked for in the past, in some illegal way. Don also seems to have "machine telepathy", meaning he can look inside machines and get them to do his bidding. Interesting premise, but the ending just seemed tacked on to give the bad guys a reason for wanting to kill Don. 2 ?? 1/2

I thought the story was very good. Puri inherited a cacao plantation from her father and an attempt was made on her life en route to Ecuador, then her husband was killed. To find the killer, Puri posed as her husband and told her siblings she died at sea. The results were interesting. #6 #BookSpinBingo #11 #BFC2022 #JUMPSTART2022 #ReadtheSpanishSpeakingWorld Ecuador #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Basil #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #Wintercosy

Creativity | John Cleese
post image
Pickpick

13/150 A short but highly entertaining book about developing a creative mind. John Cleese also narrates the book with a wonderful dry wit. It's only an hour long audiobook, so I would recommend it for work commutes or maybe an evening stroll (if you live somewhere that isn't currently buried in snow). 3 ⭐⭐⭐💫

On Animals | Susan Orlean
post image
Pickpick

12/150 I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected. Orlean's essays on various animals and life raising farm animals were both amusing and poignant. As she said there is a fine line around the world between what animals we think of as pets, what animals we think of as food, and those that think of us as food. 4 🐕🐕🐕🐕
