I love Biggles, and Gimlet is by the same author. Plenty of adventure and camaraderie. Loved it.

I've posted a longer book review at John C Adams Reviews.

I'm back!

Please accept my offering of a morning blep pic as apology for my long absence.

For some reason, my Litsy app stopped working. I tried to uninstall and reinstall it, but was unable to. It was only this morning discovered I can utilize it through the website without the app.

I have a lot of catching up to do on posting what I've been reading!

Jas16 Welcome back! 4d

I hope to continue listening to my audio, the tagged, after 1,5 yr break, the book is quite episodic so should be okey.

I want to finish Love Marriage

I just started Dinner in Rome: A History of the World in One Meal

I want to read Call the Name of the Light 1, my second manga.

I want to get a start on Fire Rush

Cinfhen Sounds like a great plan 😉 5d

Silver on the Tree | Susan Cooper
post image

Silver on the Tree by Susan Cooper is the last book in the 'Dark is Rising' sequence. I loved this series and have read it so many times, both as a child and as an adult.

I've posted a fuller book review at my blog, John C Adams Reviews.

I knew I had to look up Rebecca Green's other work as soon as I saw her illustrations in How to Be a Good Creature. Turns out she can also write an adorable book, as well as give it her unique art style. This definitely has late autumn, spooky vibes, but is fun and heartwarming to read, no matter the season.
