I‘m a few weeks late posting this, but I found these beauties at the used bookstore a few weeks ago. I‘m currently learning French — nowhere close to fluent but I hope to be someday. I plan on listening to the audiobooks in English while reading along with these. I hope I stumble across the others sometime. Used bookstores are like a treasure hunt for book lovers! 🤓



Cortg Good luck! Sounds like a solid plan 🙌 11h

Sorry Mr.Dresden, I think this one kinda drops a little. And I do hate how female characters are portrayed.

But, but, but I‘m gonna continue on the next book. I still have high hopes for you. 😉

It‘s over!!! Such an awesome series. I cannot believe it took me so long to get around to reading! Better late than never!

The Magic Hat | Mem Fox, Tricia Tusa
post image

#BBRC #A2Z #LetterM Finally getting started on this challenge, I have to dismantle my #TBRBookFort to get to the rest of my picturebooks, hopefully the hubs can pick up the rest I need from the library. This one is from a classic Aussie author Mem Fox, author of Possum Magic. A magic hat goes flying through town, turning people into animals when it lands on their head. Until the wizard comes to claim it, turning everyone back to themselves.

LibrarianRyan I didn't realize Mem Fox was an Aussie. But then again thinking about some of her most popular books, it makes perfect sense. 2d

I listened to this on Libby as an Audiobook while on my trip to Syros.

I really enjoyed it. I do like some urban fantasy and the addition of a noir-style wizard protagonist was right up my street.

The plot was gripping, the world atmospheric and the magic made sense. The main character, Harry Dresden, is flawed, often terrified and likeable. His behaviour towards women is old fashioned, though.

Jane Marsters narrated and does a decent job.

“When Sloat's smug face appeared at eye level, Raisa stiffened her fingers and stabbed them into his eyes, a technique Amon had shown her all those many years ago.“

She beat me! Started June 1 with book one and finished in August. Pretty impressive for an 11 year old. So proud of her. Making her her congratulatory breakfast.

I love mystery and I love fantasy, but I‘m not sure if a #genrebusting mystery-fantasy is for me. I already bailed on Dirk Gently, and this was kind of meh for me. Interesting enough story but clunky writing. I won‘t be continuing with this series. I did, however, get a chuckle when someone asked the MC if he was subtle and quick to anger. #Booked2019

BarbaraJean I felt similarly about this one. My husband and several of our friend group LOVE this series and swear to me that it gets better a few books in, but I still haven‘t read further. Too much else to read! 1w
Susanita @BarbaraJean Exactly! My TBR is full enough. 1w
TheAromaofBooks I loved the Codex Alera so much, but still haven't gotten around to trying the Dresden Files. Someday I will give them a whirl! 1w
Cinfhen 👍🏻 1w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @BarbaraJean @susanita I felt the same. Never read past the first book, even though the descriptions seemed like a perfect fit to my taste. 7d

Harry Potter swag from #LeakyCon. I am spending way too much money and having a blast. I hope the sign doesn't offend anyone here, but I am putting it on my front door to deter solicitors. The dragon eye necklace is my favorite. That is me by the pool in my pool witch outfit. It turns out I'm sorted as a Hufflepuff. I always thought I might be a dark Hufflepuff!We are calling me a Gothpuff.
