Fair Play | Tove Jansson

Pickpick

This short novel was my #bookspin for February. I'm not sure I quite know what it is about Tove Jansson's books that appeals to me so much. These characters made me want to revisit the Moomin books. I assume that Jonna, like Too-Ticky in the Moomin stories, was based on Tuulikki Pietilä. If you like The Summer Book, I think you'd like this, too.

Oh, I love her writing style. What I found particularly interesting personally was the fact that she picked two story settings in locations in Ireland I‘m really familiar with, Arklow and Achill Island. I was able to completely visualize the characters on location, which is really cool. I love when that happens. Anybody else love it when they recognize the location in a book?

Aimeesue Yessssss! It adds so much to my enjoyment of a book when I know where the streets etc are. 2h

I will mention as @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks The Black Dagger Brotherhood series and the Midnight Breed series but I read these books long time ago. Do I feel the same about these two series?🤷🏽‍♀️I don‘t know right now about a recent book, Grinch heart 💚 🤣

I'm going to give this a try. I've been having a hard time settling on a book to read.

Jinx is personally reassuring me that there‘s better books to read if I‘m unhappy with the one I‘m currently reading😅 a book of short stories, the writing is lovely but I just wasn‘t interested in the stories, other than the first one, that were happening and ultimately didn‘t want to continue the read

Nine powerhouse authors have contributed to this collection of weird stories about collections for teens. I was so pleased to see that YALSA chose this as the latest Printz winner! Every story is strong yet I have a favourite: David Levithan writes about a boy who steals from other people‘s collections… but only the least valuable item. #YA #shortstories

MaureenMc The Levithan story plot reminds me of this novel 1d
Lindy @MaureenMc Interesting! The plot reminded me of another book too: 1d

I enjoyed this book. It‘s a compilation of 9 short stories I enjoyed the interaction between the 2 MC‘s! I‘d like a series of full length fantasy novels featuring these two. Fun idea! I don‘t feel these stories were written with being in a compilation in mind so they don‘t meld smoothly together but each taken on their own is great fun. The narrator was a good fit!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Traci1 I love that cover. 1d
Twainy @Traci1 hee I bought the book before I even read it 😁 cover buy. 1d
