The Secret Garden: A Graphic Novel | Mariah Marsden, Luechtefeld
post image

Not to be a buzzkill, but you most certainly did not! You just walked down a path and saw a bird singing, then told the gardener this. The pacing in this graphic novel is a bit weird 😅 #Comic #Adaptation

IndoorDame That would drive me crazy! And I had such high hopes for this. 2d
Kenyazero @IndoorDame It's really pretty so far! Sometimes you have to infer a little based on prior knowledge of the book, though, which is a bit disappointing. 2d

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.

This little book was just delightful!

The Roundhill | Dick King-Smith, Sian Bailey
post image

Dick King-Smith, most famous for his book Babe the Gallant Pig, was an incredibly prolific author of 75-110pg-long children's books. I own a BUNCH of them, many unread. He's a bit hit or miss - someone who has written this many books pretty much as to be - but some of them are such wins that it's worth the effort of sifting through them. This one was right in the middle. I liked the concept, but the story didn't really go anywhere. I also didn't ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) like the way Evan treated his cousin, and I felt bad for old-Evan who says he wants to believe in God but can't. There's a weird sadness to this book that just didn't work for me. But it was only 84 pages long, so it wasn't that long of an investment - but not a King-Smith book I'll probably pick up again.

There's a complex Robin hood theme here that felt pretty relevant to the covid situation at the time of reading.

This was really lovely. So cozy and charming. Filled with endearing characters, captivating nature writing and beautiful illustrations.

Aimeesue @Ann_Reads Any time! I try to remember to check the library and Hoopla before I buy, because I want to read WAY more than I can fit in my house. 😂 2w

I only listened to this because Grady Hendrix references it in How to Sell a Haunted House. Oof. I shouldn‘t be crying while gaming but here we are.

Reggie @Ruthiella @merelybookish @Suet624 I had to go get some ice cream. I went to record it in Goodreads and was reading the comments where people said friends have read passages from here at their weddings. And then there was a grandma who said she could barely make it through while reading it to her grandkids. It‘s a touching book. 2w
sarahbarnes This book is heart wrenching for sure. ♥️ 2w

Lindy If you want an antidote, there‘s a really creepy retelling of the Velveteen Rabbit in 3d

I‘ve finished The Sentence and The Christmas Chronicles.

I DNFed The Red Room

I read Moominland Midwinter and Bambi

I‘m currently reading A Tuscan Childhood.

Cinfhen What was the Red Room about?!!? 3w
AnneCecilie @Cinfhen Good question. It‘s a crime/ thriller. I read 40p so probably just the “intro” to the book. A therapist is asked in by the police to assess a man who‘s been seen lurking around a playground and as she leaves the room she‘s attacked by him. Then a poor woman is found dead near Regent‘s Canal. This is supposed to be most alike their Frieda Klein series. I just didn‘t feel like reading this now. 3w
Cinfhen It actually sounds good but I‘m all about if it‘s not grabbing you than put it down and move on! #AllHailTheBail 😊 3w
AnneCecilie @Cinfhen I know. I had actually planned to read something else last week, but then I saw that this book was due back at the library soon and I couldn‘t extend the loan any longer so I “had” to read it. I guess that‘s not a good way to start a book. 3w

This was such a cute story, and it had disability representation in it. There was a reveal I didn't see coming. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series. It felt like a warm hug on a rough day, exactly what my mental health needed.
