I personally loved this one. Near-absent father, overbearing mother, a small community...and poor can‘t-fit-in-anywhere Jeanette. This book has wit and a heroine who doesn‘t change how she is just to make others comfortable. 161/1,001 #1001Books #ReadingRainbow

Liz_M Have you read the tagged memoir? I actually enjoyed it more -- more straight-forward. 1mo
AshleyHoss820 @Liz_M I haven‘t, but it keeps popping up, so I added it to my TBR on GoodReads!! Thank you! 😄😄😊 1mo
Liz_M Excellent! 1mo

I was fairly interested in the first part of this book, about the Crown Princess and the Crown Prince Sado‘s tragic tale, especially since the majority of it is true. But it never really has that punch. And it didn‘t interweave with the second part, which I waffled about the entire time I was reading it. This one fell short, for me. I didn‘t HATE it, but I coulda died without reading it... 😊😊😊 160/1,001 #1001Books #ReadingRainbow

BarbaraBB One day I‘ll read it but I am in no hurry! 1mo
AshleyHoss820 @BarbaraBB Yeah, no rush...😂😄 It was an easy read, but my attention drifted off and on. The main character in Part 2 shares your first name! 😄😄😄 1mo
BarbaraBB Have you read that other one on the list, by Drabble? 1mo

AshleyHoss820 @BarbaraBB Not yet, but now I‘m nervous! 😂😄 1mo
BarbaraBB Me too. I haven‘t read that one either. It‘s been on my shelves for years 🤣 1mo

Study break! I‘m reading some children‘s books to try and keep myself sane. Because nothing else seems to be working. 🙃🙃🙃

Most of my reading yesterday was to this sweetie. We read the tagged book along with every new potty book left from my kids‘ days, (which was quite a few) and Feathers for Lunch, and two or three Little Critter books! I love being a grandmother! #raisingreaders

#LiteraryLuck Day 6: This picturebook has #UniqueCharacterNames. Crictor is the story of the enduring and beautiful friendship between Madame Bodot and a boa constrictor whom she named Crictor. This strange and extremely intelligent creature was given to her as a gift by her son who was in Africa studying reptiles. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-5rr

vkois88 Interesting! 4mo

My niece was a huge Reading Rainbow fan. I was listening to a podcast and heard LeVar mention Skybrary so called to tell my niece about it. Guess who‘s ear got screamed in? 🤔 She‘s already created an account for her boys.

A fan of #readingrainbow as a kid and I really enjoy listening to LeVar‘s voice. He reads various short stories to you through your podcast app. Highly recommended.

Karkar I love this podcast! 1y
wen4blu One of my favorites podcasts! 1y
