I saw Emily Nussbaum speak at #p&p and picked up a copy of her book. It was amazing. The book is full of essays, some of which were already published, but which go together really well. I always trust Nussbaum about tv and this book was charming.

I liked the book but didn‘t exactly love it. While the premise was interesting, I thought that it could have had a more cohesive story than it did. 3.75 ⭐️#bookstagram #litsyatz2019 #litsyatoz #letterp #p

Miss Marple Omnibus | Agatha Christie
post image

It‘s all Golden Age mysteries for me this Easter (except on audio where I‘m going Modern Cozy). I‘ve just finished two Lord Peter stories that I hadn‘t read before, and moving on to a 4-in-1 Miss Marple. (I might have read some of them before, or seen the TV-adaptations, I might not. It‘s been years anyway, I‘m sure I won‘t remember squat of who dunnit.) #Påskekrim #EasterMysteries

vivastory I have yet to read any Marple, I've only read stand alone & Poirot. I need to remedy this. 7mo
rretzler Love, love, love Golden Age mysteries. Recently Ive been purchasing out-of-print Anthony Berkeley books when I can find them reasonably priced. I‘ve only read a couple of his and enjoyed them. 7mo
rretzler @vivastory May I recommend Murder at the Vicarage as your first Marple? It‘s one of my favorites. I‘ve been a Christie fan for 45+ years! 7mo

Leniverse @vivastory Oh, yes you must! Miss Marple is wonderful. I also love the Tommy & Tuppence books (or at least I did when I read them 25-30 years ago 😅) 7mo
Leniverse @rretzler I haven't read any of Berkeley's books. Adding him to the list of books to keep an eye out for. 7mo
vivastory @rretzler Thanks for the recommendation! I will definitely check that out soon! 7mo
SharonGoforth Fun!!! 7mo

There were some great moments in the book. Wasn‘t my favourite and it was a fine addition to the series. 4⭐️ #Litsyatz #letterp #p

The legendary spy/assassin, Black Kaiser, has retired, but now his former employer wants him dead. To survive, he will have to kill everyone out to get him. The GN is in black and white with a dash of red and has very little dialogue. I liked this and thought it was easy to follow even with so little dialogue. #LitsyAtoZ #P #GraphicNovel2019 #graphicnovelchallenge ⬇️

Bookzombie Movie Review: Polar is now a Netflix original starring Mads Mikkelsen and Vanessa Hudgens. The GN gave the basic outline, but they definitely had to flesh it out for 118 min running time. I enjoyed the movie and will probably watch it again. Disclaimer: I love action movies. This often includes the bad ones too. 9mo
GondorGirl I'll have to check this one out! 9mo
Chrissyreadit I might watch this with my son. Thanks for sharing! 9mo

Bookzombie @Chrissyreadit I don‘t know how old your son is, but I just thought I would you a heads up there is a decent bit of sex in it along with the violence. 😬 9mo
Bookzombie @TK421 I saw your review! Did you watch the movie yet? 9mo
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie thanks- I do not set a lot of limits on him now but I will think about it. I def appreciate the heads up. He‘s 15 and I recognize he could find or see anything at this point and I don‘t want shame or sneaking. 9mo
Bookzombie @Chrissyreadit I understand. 🙂 9mo

Zeus is snoring little snores as I read this beautiful graphic novel. I liked the style of the art in this one and the different take on the myth of Persephone with many added elements and world building. #winterstormreadathon #dogsoflitsy #litsyatoz #p

BookBabe Nice! 🙌🏻 10mo

Me and Mr. Darcy: A Novel | Alexandra Potter

I grabbed this off the TBR pile (read mountain) during a jet lag sleep deprived night. A quick read and enjoyable. I‘m a sucker for books based on Austen‘s novels and also those about bookshops. This was a fun read and having done the ‘Austen thing‘ in Bath in late 2016 It was a nice reminder of our whirlwind visit.
Fun fact - if you search a Mr Darcy on Goodreads you get 649 results!

I had the pleasure of seeing Martín Espada, one of my absolute favorite poets, with @kgriffith last night. Espada is amazing, such a fantastic writer and reader/performer. Anyway, the afternoon I had today was a stressful, and I felt helpless, so I wrote a poem, with the rhythms of “Alabanza” echoing in my ears. #martínespada #poetry #pólvora #challengingday #helplessness #writingashealing #alabanza #vomit #poetryreading #maine
