I finished the last crazy chapter of this magical realism story with breakfast this morning. I enjoyed the interweaving of the story with recipes and the descriptions of making the food which made it a perfect choice for #FoodAndLit. However, I did not enjoy the central love story at all, and I was disappointed in the ending although I knew what was coming from other reviews.

This is packed full of information and includes numerous short personal anecdotes. It also includes a balance of details from different perspectives including students, family, and staff. However, it is written in a very straightforward report style and does not elaborate on any of the personal stories.

Audio duration: 8 hours 14 minutes

This is another short but really great book by Jewel Parker Rhodes. I loved this story of biracial brothers who stick together and learn fencing. It describes some truly serious topics but balances it with the strength and support of close family and friends. I also appreciated the literary and historical references that elaborate on the message of the story.

Not only did this book start out with a reference to one of my favorite books of all time, but near the end it references one of my favorite nonfiction books. The story of Alexandre Dumas‘s father is fascinating, and this is a perfect historical reference to bring together the integral aspects of this book.

I‘m currently reading too many books, but I couldn‘t resist picking up this fairly short one while reading at school with my students today. It immediately pulled me in with a reference to Tolkien‘s LotR on the very first page. After a few chapters, I think it‘s going to be a somewhat difficult but important read, like the other books by Jewel Parker Rhodes I‘ve read.

I appreciated this story, but compared to some other books I‘ve read or listened to recently focusing on immigration and detention centers, I‘m not sure it stood out or will be as memorable. Yet, at least one of those was clearly YA and this is more #MiddleGrade, so I would recommend this to a greater range of readers.

Sophia starts out as a standard fairy tale princess that the story happens to, but through many attempts on her life and eye opening events, she grows into a strong character in her own right. I enjoyed the fantasy aspects of this story, the side characters, and the message of love and compassion as a strength. This is a great YA Snow White retelling.

I‘ve seen this book mentioned quite a bit recently, and as it‘s on a list I‘m trying to read by the end of the year, I decided to listen right away. There are definite nods to The Westing Game in the riddles and inheritance aspects, and it was a very fun listen. I will plan to continue the trilogy and add it to my class library.

I enjoyed a few more of Tolkien‘s letters with supper tonight. These to Christopher about the writing of LotR and WWII at the same time provide a much more personal perspective than the biographical writing I‘ve previously read.

As for supper, I‘ve been meaning to try making étouffée for a while and finally did today. It‘s delicious, and I‘ve got meals prepped for a few more days.

I heard about this book after reading The Riddle of the Sands, and when I realized it was only 3 1/2 hours on audio, it became today‘s afternoon listen. I enjoyed it, but more as an entertaining story of a man wandering around Scotland changing disguises and destroying things to avoid capture than as an early spy thriller.

#1001books #audiobook #audiowalk

Daisey @JazzFeathers I got to this one today, and I did enjoy it more than The Riddle of the Sands. However, I think that's mainly because it was shorter, and I'm more entertained by a man wandering around Scotland in various disguises than one detailing his sailing prowess. 2w

The Kinder Poison | Natalie Mae

This was a fun #audiobook, but it is very much a #YA fantasy with romance including what I would consider an unnecessary love triangle. I was intrigued by the world the author created, but I wanted more details of the magic and less of the romantic angle. It‘s also the first book of a series so although the main storyline is resolved, there are plenty of questions for the next book. I enjoyed it but doubt I‘ll continue the series.

I love these bits about the characters that just make themselves known as the story is written, especially with how much I like Faramir. I‘m also amused by the comment about him possibly joining other fascinating information that‘s been removed to the appendices if he keeps on about history.

I went into this middle grade novel verse without knowing what it was about, and it ended up making quite an impression. It clearly shows the effects of brain trauma for a parent on the child in a concise way without overwhelming detail. There are also amazing examples of friendship in this story, and Woodson‘s writing in verse is wonderful.

This story was so good and a perfect October read! The mysteries were fascinating and completely explained in the end.

Additionally, the narrators of this audio version were fantastic.

I enjoyed a mug of spiked cider with more of Tolkien‘s letters this evening and am caught up with our October schedule. After all we‘ve read of Tolkien‘s writing process through the History of Middle-Earth, it‘s fascinating to see mentions of the same developments in his letters to Christopher. I think reading the books in this order gives a better appreciation of the details in the letters.

I‘m giving this a pick, but it‘s not a strong one. I don‘t read many of this genre, but I went in expecting much more tension and action. Much of the story is heavy on the technical details of sailing and the specific location (I wanted maps and illustrations as I listened). Overall, I did find it interesting, but it wasn‘t quite what I was expecting.

More thoughts in the comments. ⬇️

#audiobook #1001books #Reading1001

Daisey As I read more books on the #1001books list, I realize that the books chosen are not necessarily great books. They are often books that show the development of literature, and genres continue to develop and often improve to our perspective. This book, considered one of the first spy novels, is a perfect example of that aspect. It made a real historical and literary impact. I appreciate it for that reason and am glad to have read it. 1mo
Daisey @BarbaraBB I finished it and definitely have thoughts. I think I could have really enjoyed this if I was well versed in sailing and more familiar with the geography of this area of the North Sea. However, as a spy novel, it was incredibly lacking in tension. 1mo
BarbaraBB You are right about the #1001books list I think. That makes it fascinating but at times hard too. I have read many books like this one (first in its genre) that left me underwhelmed because I AM looking for a great book! 1mo
See All 8 Comments
Daisey @BarbaraBB Yes, I know exactly what you mean. The list has been frustrating for me for this very reason. As I‘ve realized this though, I try to use initial reviews to better prepare myself for the type of book from the list I‘m about to read and appreciate them for what they are. (edited) 1mo
JazzFeathers I see what you're saying. I had the same feeling when l read The 39 Steps. But l think perspective should help us. This is on my TBR and now I'm even more curious. 1mo
Daisey @JazzFeathers Yes, I can completely appreciate these kind of books for what they are as long as I know what I'm getting as I go into them. If you read this one, just be prepared for lots of description about sailing and small channels that become impassable at low tide rather than much actual intrigue. 1mo
Daisey @JazzFeathers I looked up 39 steps today and it‘s also on the list. It seems like it would be interesting compare to this one, but I don‘t think I can fit it in soon, if I even found a copy. 1mo

Sometimes I read books just to discuss with students or to write quizzes so they can get AR credit. That is the only reason I finished this YA horror novel. It includes a stereotypical teenage girl group with negative peer pressure, twisted religious views, minimal character development, and excessive violence. I really hope the student does not want to continue the series.

#YA #TeachersOfLitsy

LibrarianRyan I felt the same way. I own the rest of the series but have no intentions of finishing it. I can not see what so many love about this books. 1mo
Daisey @LibrarianRyan I really don‘t get it. Think I‘m going to recommend Anna Dressed in Blood and maybe some April Henry. If you‘ve got other great recommendations for this genre, I‘d be happy to pass some along as this is an often reluctant reader. (edited) 1mo
LibrarianRyan @Daisey I was not super impressed with Anna Dressed in blood but it was better than Merciless. Try the #Murdertrending series. Also Clown in a Cornfield. I just started Taking of Jake Livingston and am loving it. These are all YA but if you need Mg let me know. I also have more suggestions but Jake is short and so is Clown. #MT has various forms do like chat rooms, chapter sections etc. I always have more but these are nice foe RR. 1mo
