Stuart Little | E. B. White

I must have subconsciously known today was E.B. White's birthday when I picked #StuartLittle off my #middlegrade pile! I can't believe all the #trueclassics I missed growing up! #bbrc @LibrarianRyan

IamIamIam @MayJasper Aww, thanks!!! That's my table runner!! 😂 1w
LibrarianRyan You missed this growing up. thank goodness you are reading it now. The movie is okay, but it is not the book. Even Michael j Fox can not give it that power. 1w
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan I really slacked off as a kid. I mean, I read a ton but I feel like I read the same things over and over again! Then I found my mom's 80s horror books and it was all over at about 11. Lol... I'm glad I missed some stuff, though, because The Phantom Tollbooth was definitely better for me as an adult. It would have been cute as a kid but I was rolling!!! 1w
LibrarianRyan @IamIamIam I do that. I too enjoyed phantom tollbooth better as an adult then I did as a kid. Well except for the movie. That i liked better as a kid. 1w
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan Ha! I didn't even know there was a movie! I should find it and show the kids! 1w
LibrarianRyan @IamIamIam Yeah, it's half real, half animated. It was from the early 70's. I saw it way before I ever read the book. It was played frequently on Navy TV when we lived in Guam. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064806/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1 1w
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan YOU LIVED IN GUAM?!? In high school, I wanted to apply to the University of Guam for my self esteem because I heard they didn't reject anyone. 😂 That's so cool!!! Did you enjoy your time there? 1w
LibrarianRyan @IamIamIam Yes, but I was 4ish - 8 years old. But I have fond memories and amazing pictures. 1w

Heft: A Novel | Liz Moore

Adoring this so far, I‘m about halfway through. It follows Arthur Opp, a 550 pound man who hasn‘t left his home for nearly 20 years, and Kel, the son of his ex student. Liz Moore‘s writing is so easy to sink into and it flows so well. I loved her other novel The Unseen World too which I read last year. I will definitely be reading more of her stuff!

MayJasper Sounds very interesting. #coversublime 3mo

I'm sad that it took me this long to finally read a volume of Oliver's poetry. She painted beautiful pictures with her words.

MayJasper I really like the look of that collection 4mo

#anewchapter #wife Alanna is an unconventional wife at best - trained as a knight, her life is full of danger, and she‘s often away from home. She & her daughter struggle to connect in later books, and I love how richly marriage is portrayed through the Tortall series.

MayJasper I like your blurb 😊 6mo

I know we are only in January, but this is my favorite read of 2019 so far! I have been on a fairytale retelling spree for a while now, and this is one of the best I have ever read. I will be keeping an eye on Danielle Teller.

Bk14 Of The Phryne Fisher series is finished. In this one, Phryne has been asked to be the Queen in the Flower Parade, which includes looking after the four flower maidens, most of whom cause immense trouble. One goes missing under troubling circumstances with another implicated. Then Phrynes adopted daughter goes missing. A good read, full of carnies & circus folk, lots of folk music & a few ruffians & Very Bad Men. #phryneappreciationclub

MayJasper Oh yes #coversublime 😍 8mo
