Eeep! I forgot to post this yesterday!

🍁 This year I am especially thankful for T.J. Klune. His stories are so whimsical and heartfelt, and just feel like a bright light shining on a sometimes too dark world.

🍁 No, but I try to at least visualize all the things I'm grateful and thankful for every day!

ozma.of.oz I have loved everything I‘ve read by Klune! He might become an auto buy from me. Thank you for sharing! 5d
Branwen @ozma.of.oz YES! Isn't he so incredible?! 😃💕📚 4d

1. MG Leonard - MG author who captivates children with her story telling. My daughter and I love her book. We read her books together and have had some great chats.
2. No……but love reading about how you all use yours on Litsy
3. This series ignited my love of reading again. When I was pregnant, my hubby brought them for me. I even ended up naming my daughter after a character from the series.
Thank you for the tag @hannah-leeloo

ozma.of.oz What a wonderful thing to share with your daughter! Thank you for sharing! 5d

1. Definitely Nora Roberts, she is such a force for women authors and the romance genre.
2. Nope
3. Tagged book is like a warm hug.

ozma.of.oz I feel the same way about your tagged book! It was exactly what I needed last year! Thanks for sharing! 6d

Thank you for the tag sweet friend @Yuki_Onna 😘

🍁 would have to be Roald Dahl for starting my love of reading and giving my children the same joy to share together
❄ in a way as I journal things that keep me strong
🌟 I am grateful for Peter Pan as it links back to the childhood, my kids joy and one of my favourite escapes from reality

Care to share? @Cupcake12 @Butterfinger @BethM @GondorGirl @Birdsong28

ozma.of.oz I‘m looking forward to sharing Dahl with my nibling! Thank you for posting! 6d

1. Murakami Haruki. For setting dreamscapes and allowing me to escape reality.
And most importantly, for enabling me to write again and making me want to.

2. No.

3. This play... I was introduced to theatre because of it. That changed my life.

I love this! Thank you @ozma.of.oz

Wanna play @hannah-leeloo @MySharonaK @BeeMagical ?

ozma.of.oz Peter Pan is an excellent doorway to the joys of theater! Thank you for sharing! 6d
Yuki_Onna @ozma.of.oz Peter Pan, dear? 🤔 While I certainly agree with you, 😉
it was Andorra by Max Frisch my mother went to watch with me at theatre.
It was required reading at school at 10 grade and she knew I enjoyed it.
So she got us tickets. I fell in love with one of the actors. I got to know him.
That was the start of everything...

ozma.of.oz Whoops! I think I commented too fast! Someone else tagged Peter Pan, and I was still thinking about it. So sorry! 🤦🏼‍♀️ I‘ll have to look up Andorra. I don‘t think I‘ve heard of it before. (edited) 5d

Yuki_Onna @ozma.of.oz No need to be sorry at all! 😚 I was just a bit puzzled... 😂
Max Frisch was (along with Friedrich Duerrenmatt) the most famous modern author of Switzerland. His novels and plays are frequently required reading in Germany. Andorra is one of his most influential plays - about someone who is made a scapegoat and the society that kills him with their prejudices. It's often thought to be set in Nazi Germany. It made a huge impact on me...

Yuki_Onna @ozma.of.oz Btw, I really enjoy these kinds of conversations that ensue from ... mistakes or misunderstandings, if you will... 🤗
Of course, plays by mid-20th century mid-European authors are quite obscure outside of Europe... 😛 So I don't expect anyone apart from the bourgeoisie of the German speaking countries to have heard of it... 😁
(edited) 5d
ozma.of.oz That sounds like a really intense read. Finding some works that I wouldn‘t normally be exposed to or pick up on my own is entirely why I do these questions! 😁 And yeah, misunderstandings can make for some really interesting discussions. 5d
BeeMagical I saw this too late!🤦🏼‍♀️💀 5d
Yuki_Onna @BeeMagical No worries! 😁 That happens to me frequently... 😁 Maybe you'll play this one next week? 😊 5d
Yuki_Onna @ozma.of.oz Ha! Then I'll try to do my job and tell you about obscure European authors/books even more in the future! 😝
-Well, as a German, we are used having to deal with the Nazi era, Hitler, WWII etc. in films, books, documentaries and conversations on a daily basis.
Andorra is intense in topic, sure, but I really like the writing style of Max Frisch (He's one of my fave writers) and I enjoyed the discussion in class.

1. While there are lots of authors I‘m grateful for, Mary Oliver stands out to me as someone who‘s both inspiring and calming to me. I love her dearly.

2. I keep a journal for what made me smile, which is kinda the same thing to me. It‘s just a journal full of lists. I love it.

3. Tagged.

1. In grateful for Louise Penny. She not only created a great character in Armand Gamache, but also she‘s a very passionate advocate for the mystery genre.
2. Not specifically. Maybe I should start doing that?
3. I‘m grateful for all of the Alphabet books. The series was my “gateway” to mysteries back in the day, and that‘s enriched my reading life greatly ever since.

ozma.of.oz My mother adores Grafton‘s books! You both have excellent taste! Thanks for posting! 6d
