I wasn‘t sure what to expect from this classic. I knew it wouldn‘t be the Disney story, but I was happy with it. Pinocchio got into lots of trouble because he only thought of himself and made bad decisions. Gradually though, he was taught how he should act and care for those he loved and who loved him, eventually granting him his biggest wish! #4 #BookSpin #7 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #ChildrensClassicRead2022 #JoyousJanuary #Wintercosy

TheAromaofBooks I just finished this one today, too!! I did feel like the Disney version had a more coherent plot, but I ended up really enjoying the original, even if the timeline confused the bejeebers out of me 😂 22h
Allylu LOL !! 😁 21h

I watched the film adaptation of this ages ago. The film is pretty faithful to the manga. Even though I knew what to expect it was still an enjoyable read

Second manga read for #JoyousJanuary @Andrew65 #wintercosy

Andrew65 Great 👏👏👏 1d

8/150 When I first heard about this, I thought, what a bad idea. Now that I've read it, I can confirm that it was definitely a stupid, horrible idea. All these years, Batman hasn't been facing one Joker, but actually three of them; The Criminal, The Clown and The Comedian. Each an aspect of the Joker's psychotic personality. Who was the first Joker? Who's the original one? We are left never knowing. Two big thumbs down 👎👎

KathyWheeler So they basically rewrote the history of the Joker and made him into three people? Why? 2d
RamsFan1963 @KathyWheeler I think part of it was to explain inconsistencies in the character over the years. Sometimes the Joker was almost a playful prankster, then other times a ruthless killer who could beat Robin with a crowbar. 2d

TieDyeDude Agreed. I am disappointed I purchased this. Nowhere near as interesting as it thinks it is. 2d
KathyWheeler @RamsFan1963 Thanks for the explanation of why they might f do o this. (edited) 2d
Andrew65 Oh dear! One to avoid. 2d

Another really cute volume. I prefer the TV interpretation of Nozomi Fujisaki over the manga and since she was quite prominent in this volume I was disappointed by her charcter. She was a low key fujoshi type which is not a trope I enjoy

PuddleJumper Manga read for #JoyousJanuary @Andrew65 and I'm still nice and cosy #wintercosy 🤣 2d
Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 2d

7/150 While I don't think it was as good as The Rising Storm, I enjoyed this a great deal. Not to spoil the plot, the Jedi are forced to fight for their survival as Nihil saboteurs cripple a major Jedi base. Sadly some of the characters I'd come to like did not survive, but it gave a nice touch of realism to see the Jedi fail for all too human reasons. 4 💥💥💥💥 1/2

Clwojick Way to go! 4d
Lizpixie You‘re beating me so far this year!🙌 4d

I have 2 books I have chosen for the Snow White retelling: The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson and The Sleeper and The Spindle by Neil Gaiman. Just finished listening to the tagged book. It was retold from an interesting perspective. It was very faith-infused which I appreciated but I know not all would, which is why I mention it. #3 #BookSpinBingo #23 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Poinciana #Wintercosy

Another January book club win! This was a charming debut. I loved Molly and her way of looking at the world. Super fast paced read. Managed to inhale in one sitting. #bookclubreads #wintercosy @PuddleJumper

Yesterday's A For H was to get moving (ideally outdoors) - I've been doing loads of Blogilates/Yoga, so I thought I'd go on a walk too - here's a blurry photo from that😂 Today's is to thank people I'm grateful for - thank you to all of you on here for being gems!💎

I'm getting through Rebecca more slowly than I'd like so tonight I want to get to at least p100!

I quite fancied this book. Strong historical fiction and Ms. Ferguson knows how the aristocracy works. Loved the characters and storyline. #100readschallenge #wintercosy @PuddleJumper
