It almost took a century to be published, but I am so glad this book is now available in print. It‘s the first non-fiction book I‘ve read that has a first-hand account of the Middle Passage and being enslaved in the American South. Kudos to Hurston for recognizing the importance, and documenting, Cudjo‘s story. The audiobook was extremely well done, and I highly recommend reading in that format!

A nice cozy reread and the reason I'm scared of clowns; not so fond of red balloons either. But Stephen Webber's narration is amazing 🎈

Did I stay up way late to finish this one? Yes, yes I did. I‘ll pay for it tomorrow, but I had to find out what happens! Without giving away any spoilers, this #SupernaturalThriller is probably my second favorite by St James…she has this incredible way of building suspense with a multitude of clues and a creep factor that makes me keep all of the lights on as I read. Cannot wait to discuss this next Sunday! #SundayBuddyRead #BBRC #YeahBaby

It took all I had not to stay up and finish this one last night. So, I had to finish it this morning!

Without going into too much detail, as this builds on so much that has happened in the Gamache series, this has to be one of my favorites thus far in the series. So much emotion is conveyed in Penny‘s writing, and so many built up layers fall into place. She really could have ended the series with this one, but we all know it continues!

Librarybelle My progress for #AwesomeApril - depending upon how the day goes, I may just meet my 20 hour goal by the end of today! @Andrew65 5mo
Librarybelle I‘m also using this for the #Revenge prompt for #YeahBaby #BBRC - there are definite elements of revenge that have grown throughout the series and culminate in this one. @LibrarianRyan 5mo
Cinfhen Yay!!! Good find 5mo

This fascinating book explores forms of art and the secrets that the medium hides and/or reveals - from coverups to unfinished works to even censorship, art has a lot of stories to tell. I loved the brief background of each art piece discussed, as well as the pages of closer detail of each art piece. I think this is a must for any art enthusiast. #ArtPhotography for #YeahBaby #BBRC

I loved this book. Captain Laurence captures a French ship during the Napoleonic Wars. On board is a dragon egg that is ready to hatch. And when it does the dragon, Temeraire bonds to him and thus enlists them into His Majesty's Aerial Corps.

This was a fantastical reimagining of WWI. In this #Steampunk version there are the Darwinists who have learned to create new hybrid animals that are part machine like the leviathan airship that is part whale/part zeppelin.
Prince Aleksander of the Austro-Hungarian throne is on the run. Deryn Sharp is a teenage girl pretending to be a boy so she could join the Britsh airforce. War is just starting to break out & already they are in trouble.

This was a great book on growing plants and how to connect with them. I will suggest that I listened to the audiobook which was good but the print or ebook version might be more helpful 🪴

The earth is gone and an ark ship full of humans is searching the galaxy for a new home. Also a green planet with ultra advanced spiders.
This was going to be a so-so read until the last few chapters. They were brilliant 🕷

This was quite entertaining. It's basically the Thrawn origin story and not surprisingly he is equally brilliant & clueless. Fortunately he has help from Admiral Ar'alani & Thalias as he fights off space pirates, uses art to judge civilizations, and anger the Chiss Ascendancy. Business as usual ❤
