A little chillier this morning, could have used a nice hot cup of coffee to accompany this outing. That is okay though, the kids are playing and I am reading about the wedding of the year. 💍👒💎

The pretty dress on the cover trend totally sucked me in.
This a quick YA read about 35 girls being selected for the prince to pick a wife from. Of course a love triangle is tossed in there and it has the back drop of rebel attacks and a caste system to keep things lively. I did enjoy it and I am on to the second book for as long as the kiddo stays asleep.

Dark Matter | Blake Crouch

A little sci-fi thriller that makes you ponder what makes you, you. I read this in a couple of days, kept me engaged and had interesting surprises.

rretzler I purchased several Blake Crouch books several years ago but have yet to read them. Don‘t know what I‘ve been waiting for. 2mo

The End of Oz | Danielle Paige
post image
Pickpick

Finished off this series today. (The first book, Dorothy Must Die, I have as an ebook) Overall I enjoyed this YA reimagining of Oz. The books kept me interested with the old familiar characters and the news one Paige created. The last character that came in at the end of the series was a bit unnecessary but still a Pick for the whole series.

A Wrinkle in Time | Madeleine L'Engle
post image
Pickpick

The book is definitely interesting, a nice introduction into Scifi for kids. The main character Meg was hard to really like because she is angry and sullen most of the time, but it is an emotion people/kids need to learn to handle and the book addresses it. A solid read but not a favorite. I will probably check out the movie later on.

One of my favorite movies as a kid and definitely a book I will always love! A bittersweet tale that is just so lush and beautiful. My first (re)read of the year.

A Very Austen Christmas | Robin Helm, Laura Hile, Barbara Cornthwaite, Wendi Sotis

Mehso-so

4 short stories in the world of Austen that read like fan fiction. They were cute, quick reads which worked for me since I read them in between family gatherings and the plane ride back home.

Read this on the plane home for Christmas and just got a chance to finish it. It was eh, the almost 30 year old characters acted like silly 14 year olds. I could see it as a Hallmark movie but the book wasn't worth the read.

Heideschrampf I‘m pretty sure there was a P&P hallmark movie this year! 6mo

Equal Rites | Terry Pratchett

My favorite part about Prachett are the inanimate side characters he gives life. Like the luggage and the trees (though they are not technically inanimate) that talked in his previous books and the staff and the Unseen University's mind in this book.

Thank you so much to @Bookcation74 for my #witchpleaseswap !! I first have to show off the beautiful wrapping paper, especially the pressed leaves one. I am very excited to read all the books you got me and try out your favorite book Nevernight. Loved the matching journal/sticky notes. The bookmark is pretty and purple! I wore the bracelets today. Aventuine for some luck is one I need. Thank you again and thank you @monalyisha for a great swap.

Bookcation74 Yay! I‘m glad you liked everything and hopefully the bracket will bring you some luck 💫 7mo
monalyisha I adore the pressed leaves wrapping paper! 😍🍃 And “Nevernight” might actually be the first book I ever shelved on Goodreads (& it‘s still on my TBR 😅). It was a previous supervisor‘s favorite book (it‘s not a children‘s book clearly, but she was the Children‘s Librarian). Great package! Hope you had a happy #WitchPleaseSwap! 🖤🔮 7mo

So, we got this book 2nd hand the other day and I read it to my daughter last night. I must not have read this one before because I remember cuddly and righteous King Babar, not everyone dying. 😯 Origin stories can be weird.
