@Singout I‘ve read numbers : 2,3,4,7,8,14,15,18 & 19 🤯 So that means we‘re a good match🙃

Tagged book made my top read list last year!

Now to research which unread one to read first!

#AuldLangSpine

monalyisha Oh my gosh, I know! 🙈 This was a tricky one. But there are still 11 titles left — and I think your tastes complement one another nicely. Have fun! 😘 2d
TheBookHippie @monalyisha No worries -it‘ll be a lot of fun. 2d
monalyisha I don‘t think I spotted that you‘d read Bittersweet, though! That‘s a bummer! That looks like a good one. 2d

monalyisha This one‘s on my TBR (waiting for me to listen to the audio). 2d
TheBookHippie @monalyisha my TBR list means I want the book, I may have read it library and want to own it as I‘ll likely reread it. ♥️ 2d
monalyisha @TheBookHippie Aha! That‘s elucidating. 2d
TheBookHippie @monalyisha I‘ve read that :) I don‘t keep track of reads unless I read in group on here and thus it gets added. Way too stressful for me to keep track. 2d
TheBookHippie @monalyisha my Amazon wish list is 99 percent unread and is better marked with comments like I collect these I want this particular copy etc. 2d
TheBookHippie @monalyisha In other words I‘m difficult 100 percent of my life in every way 😝😂😂. (edited) 2d
monalyisha @TheBookHippie I mean…know thyself. Right? 🙃😜 2d
TheBookHippie @monalyisha Absolutely! 2d
Amiable Having been the person who recommended it to @Singout last year as her match partner, I advocate heavily for “The Bomber Mafia” —on audiobook! It‘s a fascinating listen. 2d
TheBookHippie @Amiable thx! I likely will read it. I cannot do audiobooks 🤦🏻‍♀️ though. Sad I know. 2d
Amiable @TheBookHippie I normally don‘t, either! Of the 100+ books I read last year, only 2 of them were audiobooks. I usually avoid them entirely. But Malcolm Gladwell actually wrote “The Bomber Mafia” to BE an audiobook —the print version was produced much later. The audiobook is more like a historical podcast —it includes old radio broadcasts and interviews that you don‘t get in the print version. I was honestly mesmerized by it. 2d
TheBookHippie @Amiable that may work. I do podcast occasionally -I have done kids books on audio in car with grandkid. 2d
TheLudicReader I am not participating this year, but Mary Lawson is a beautiful writer…just, y‘know. 2d
TheBookHippie @TheLudicReader Oh thanks for that! Maybe I‘ll start there! 1d
Chelsea.Poole Excellent list! 1d
Chrissyreadit Wow!! I‘m very interested in many of those! 23h

Miss Quinces
Swim Team
The Last Cuentista
White Smoke
Daughter of the Moon Goddess

This would be fun to do retelling with. Also, comparing and contrasting different adaptations.

Pickpick

Another adaptation of the three little pigs story. This version takes a fun spin on the traditional story. Taking place in outer space, three little aliens go on their way to find a planet of their own. It holds onto the themes and similarities of the original story.

“It looked carefully at the toys. None of the toys was the one it was looking for. The hoctopize showed the toys a picture of its Cuddles who was lost.”

This is a very cute story that ties supernatural elements of aliens and UFO‘s into a childrens book. The toys experience outer space for the first time and encounter an alien.

Mehso-so

This is a story about a bunch of toys that get left outside overnight, and they see the stars and space for the first time. They then see a spaceship coming down and it sucks the toys up into it. The “hoctopize” alien comes out looking upset and does not see the toy it was looking for. They all have a party in space and convince hoctopize to let all of the toys go back home.
