This was such a well done telling of the life and lasting impact of Alexander con Humboldt. I never knew about him before reading this book but I learned about how much he had influenced many of the people in environmental history that I greatly admire. This book starts with his early life and continues through his career and worldly travel till his death; after which it is followed by the influences he had on people in the field.

Schnoebs @Birdsong28 I was originally going to use this as the audiobook but decided to use it for the prompt of a book set in South American because his biggest travels and research on what he‘s known for is from his explorations of South American. That‘s another one for #52booksin52weeks 👍 4mo
Crazeedi Oh crap, I had this from overdrive and left it go back! I need to get it and read, I heard such good things! 4mo
Schnoebs @Crazeedi I really loved it. My favorite was probably the fact that they commented on how much on an impact he had on the entire scientific community and how you see him in the research of other great people in the field 4mo

First off, I want to comment on how there was a great body positive comment in the volume. Overall, this was another fun volume where we got to learn more this time about the familiars and the witch community in general. I flew through this so quickly because I‘ve been enjoying every bit of it. Can‘t wait to see what things we learn about in the next volume 😍

A in Potions NEWTs: 3.5⭐️

It‘s quirky and has a lot of charm but for how short of a book this was, it took me a long time to read. It was hard for me to stay awake the first 20 pages but once the little prince started talking about the planets he visited, I was able to get into it. I think there‘s many a good lesson for young readers and I can see how it‘s resonated with so many people growing up.

Schnoebs @Birdsong28 using this for the allegorical book prompt after finding that it counts for the category while looking at a list on goodreads. Happy with my progress on #52booksin52weeks 4mo
Birdsong28 @Schnoebs Yes you are doing well 😘📚📖 4mo

Schnoebs @Crimson613 it‘s an annual thing so don‘t worry! I think she‘s also going to be the Christmas at Hogwarts again this year so you can participate in that one 😍 4mo
Crimson613 @Schnoebs oh cool!! Its my first time hearing about it :0 4mo
Schnoebs @Crimson613 if you don‘t follow bookroast on YouTube, it‘s usually harder to find out about it so no worries. I had only found out about it around Christmas last year and missed the first year of owls and NEWTs so you‘re not alone. 4mo

This is such a wholesome manga series and I can‘t wait to read more. We learn about the processes behind magic and how it‘s a lot of hard work and isn‘t always exciting. I really enjoyed the food bits in the volume and the new characters we got to me. Can‘t wait to see where our witch(es) in training learns next!

This was just as much of a fun quick read as the first but with a change in perspective. For me, a lot of the stuff in the book was a little too predictable. But the amount of importance that food plays in this trilogy makes up for a lot of it. Actually seeing characters on these huge quests still having to do things like clean and cook food is probably my favorite part.

MommyWantsToReadHerBook This is so awesome! 7mo
ShyBookOwl Mine was cacophony. Pronounced it wrong for 20 years 😳🤯 7mo
HOTPock3tt Truth!!! 🙌🏽 and I also vote for “cacophony” 😶 lol @Schnoebs @ShyBookOwl I had to hear it on an audiobook before I got it right 🤦🏽‍♀️ (edited) 7mo
rretzler For some reason, whenever I saw the word furtive, I would see it with an extra “i” (furitive) and read it that way. I read a lot of mysteries and there was always someone doing something furtively, but it wasn‘t until I heard it in an audiobook and looked it up that I realized there was no extra “i”. Fortunately, I don‘t think I ever actually used the word in normal conversation! 😂 7mo
