“Oh, hey, here is a key piece of information that I‘m just mentioning now. Come to think of it, a whole lot of conflict and misunderstanding could have been prevented if I had told you this sooner. Wish I could say I had a reason for waiting so long, but really I just didn‘t feel like it. Lucky for the author I didn‘t tell you earlier, though, otherwise this book would have only been about 5 pages long!” 🤦🏻‍♂️

@RaeLovesToRead #IHaveQuestions
For 10 books to save I decided no cheating, I can‘t save my Kindle, only books I own in physical format. “Good Omens”, “Mistborn”, Talisman” and “Killing Moon” are favorites; “Storm Front”, “Eye of the World”, and “Magic Bites” are the start of some favorite series. “Priory” and “Green Rider” I need to read and will now have more time. And “Sojourn” I‘m keeping for sentimental reasons… @Branwen knows what I mean!😁

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Great books! The Jim Butcher, Ilona Andrews, and NK Jemisin are great. So tough to just pick 1 of a series though. 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa But yes… I‘d probably have to cheat, grab my kindle and a solar charger of sone kind 😂 2mo
5feet.of.fury The Talisman is probably my favorite book of all time. I cannot wait to see it as a series. 2mo

DaveGreen7777 @5feet.of.fury YAS!!! The Talisman was the perfect blend of fantasy and horror for me! 🤯 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I love your idea of a Kindle solar charger! 😂 I may have to work on building one just in case Rae‘s end of the world scenario winds up coming true! 😳 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen 😊😊😊 2mo

@RaeLovesToRead has questions!!!

In this scenario, the world is ending, and one of my biggest regrets is… oh, no, I can only save 10 books! Sounds about right! 😂 I‘m sharing this for anyone who wants to play. My 10 books are about to be revealed in photographic fashion! 😁

@RaeLovesToRead has questions, y‘all! 🤔

Even at an early age I loved Sherlock Holmes mysteries, so I‘d go with Sherlock, Dr. Watson, and Irene Adler. For the entertainment, I would leave a bunch of fake clues around so every time Holmes used one to make a deduction about me, I could tell him, “That‘s not even close! You were way off!” Holmes wouldn‘t be amused, but I‘m sure Watson and Adler will enjoy watching Holmes suffer!😂

RaeLovesToRead Hahaha, Sherlock picks up PlayStation Controller... "I suspect we are looking for a gamer, Watson..." *looks at bookshelf* "a gamer who likes Brandon Sanderson ? 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead That‘s one of the ways I‘ll get Sherlock, I‘ll leave an Xbox controller around, and when he deduces I‘m an Xbox player I‘ll say, “No, I‘m a PlayStation player, I don‘t even own an Xbox! You‘re really bad at this, Mr. Holmes!” 🤣 3mo
RaeLovesToRead Haha. "An xbox controller without a console, Watson? I think we may be being trolled. I call shenanigans. Also, when does takeaway arrive?" ?? 3mo

Paging all Littens, @RaeLovesToRead has questions!

1. Tagged! It takes a story from Russian mythology and weaves it into a historical fiction with high fantasy elements threaded in. 🤩

2. I‘ve read cyberpunk and steampunk, but has a book ever combined both genres? Cybersteampunk should be a thing! 🤔

3. Nonfiction romance… wait, that makes it sound like I‘m opposed to real-life love! Now I have questions about myself! 😳

RaeLovesToRead I agree... DOWN WITH LOVE!!!! 🤣🤣🤣 I would totally love cybersteampunk... maybe in a Western setting instead of Victorian aesthetic... *imagining Clint Eastwood with a technological Invisibility poncho infiltrating an airship base* (*with cogs*) 4mo
DaveGreen7777 Clint Eastwood in a technological invisibility poncho… NOW I NEED THIS BOOK!!! 🤯 4mo
RaeLovesToRead I'll add it to the list of "books I'm pretending to write" ? 4mo

@RaeLovesToRead coming at us with the tough questions today! 🤔

1. Tagged! This book committed one of the worst sins for me… it was boring! Loooooong stretches of nothing interesting happening. Add to that shock value just for the sake of shock value, and a terrible ending.
2. As beloved as it is, I can‘t bring myself to read “A Storm of Swords” by GRRM. I don‘t want to continue a series that I suspect will never be completed! 😔

RaeLovesToRead I feel your pain on 2!!!! One of my favourite series' of all time and so much emotional investment ??? I can't blame GRRM though. He'll post something like "Happy Birthday to my lovely wife" on social media and all he'll get back is WRITE THE NEXT BOOK YOU #@$ &%^€¥!!!" ? 4mo
DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead Hee hee, I never thought of it like that… maybe Martin was all set to finish Winds of Winter, but when everyone kept demanding he get back to it, he folded his arms and said, “Well, now I don‘t WANT to write it anymore!!!” 🤣🤣🤣 (edited) 4mo
RaeLovesToRead He's probably finished it all and is sat back on a deckchair sipping a cocktail and smiling to himself 😄 4mo

BiblioLitten Omg the visual imagery is too much 🤣🤣 4mo
Branwen @RaeLovesToRead @DaveGreen7777 Georgie needs to get his butt in gear and finish that series! 😭 You are smart Dave, to have stopped reading when you did! I'm in the same boat as Rae... it's one of my favorite fantasy series and it's absolute torture to have to keep waiting! 😵‍💫🫠 4mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen I still wonder if GRRM was originally going to end the books the same way as the Game of Thrones show did, and after he saw how dissatisfied everyone was with the show ending, he burned the original draft of Winds of Winter and started all over?!? 🤔 4mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 I will cry so many tears of that's the case! 😭 I mean, the ending to the TV show was atrocious! But if he has to start all over we're probably looking at another decade before we see the next book! 😂🫠 4mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen We may still get to see the next book… if George RR Martin lives to be 135 years old! 😳 4mo
DogMomIrene I‘m with you too Dave. I read the first 2, maybe 3 books years ago. Can‘t even remember, but I stopped for the same reason. I‘m also waiting for Patrick Rothfuss to finish his Kvothe trilogy. I‘ll never be the person who‘s abusive to an author, but I‘m also like, pleeeeeeaaase finish! 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @DogMomIrene These authors don‘t realize what they‘re doing to us by not continuing these series! Or maybe they do but they just don‘t care! 😩 3mo
DogMomIrene @DaveGreen7777 🤣Perhaps a new field of study? Storytelling psychopaths?😂 3mo

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😁

1️⃣ Ummm… let‘s put it this way, at least 99% of my wishlist is made up of books! 😬🤓📚

2️⃣ Yes! I‘ve already bought books as Christmas presents for some of my bibliophile friends. Plus, my work does a Secret Santa, and I usually buy books for mine since it‘s a safe guess! 🎅🎁

TheSpineView Books are always a great gift! Thanks for playing 6mo

I‘m so grateful for all these great books and the Mighty Thor figure, but I‘m especially grateful to have a wonderful friend like you in my life! 😀

1️⃣ Our only real family tradition is to get together at my sister‘s house for the holiday… we‘re the kind of family that typically only sees each other twice a year even though most of us live in the same town! 😳

DaveGreen7777 @Gissy I did read the “Spring-Heeled Jack” book. It was good… but very bizarre! It even featured a steampunk version of Charles Darwin himself! 😱 7mo
Gissy @DaveGreen7777 That is weird😳 7mo
Branwen These DO look amazing! 😱💕📚 A totally justifiable purchase, in my opinion! 😁 7mo
DogMomIrene I so get this. I‘ll see beautiful rebranded covers for series I love and I have to restrain myself.😂 7mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen HA HA, thank you! 😁 7mo
DaveGreen7777 @DogMomIrene I‘m glad Littens can understand my purchasing practices! 😁 7mo

DaveGreen7777 @Avanders Very good advice! 😁 7mo
Avanders 😁 Also, when you read the first one of these … tag me? I may be interested 😄 7mo
DaveGreen7777 @Avanders I have actually read the Springheeled Jack book. I really liked it! It‘s weird and dark at parts, but it‘s such a fascinating alternate history that even features steampunk versions of famous historical figures like Charles Darwin and Florence Nightengale! 😱 7mo
Avanders Oooh ok fun! Thanks! 😁🤩 7mo
RaeLovesToRead How did I miss this post?? 😲 I adore the UK covers to thus series too ❤ 7mo
RaeLovesToRead *this 7mo
DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead Hee hee, fun fact, whenever I see a poll on Bookstagram asking if the U.S. or U.K. covers are better, more often than not I vote for the U.K. ones. The U.K. has all the coolest stuff, especially when it comes to book covers… and rock bands… and Raes! 😎 7mo
RaeLovesToRead Awww! 😊💕 You guys have The Killers though! When I finally manage to visit the US, I'll probably end up buying a load of books I already own, but with US covers 😁😁 7mo

1️⃣ Shallan from “The Stormlight Archives”. Shallan started as a con artist, so she‘s experienced in pretending to be other people. And now that she can cast illusions, she could even bring her own CGI effects to Hollywood!

2️⃣ “Orphan Black”. Shallan could play an entire Clone Club almost as well as Tatiana Maslany did! Sorry, Shallan, but NO ONE could be better at playing clones than Tatiana was!

TheSpineView Didn't think about her. Excellent choice! Thanks for playing! 8mo

Thank you for this #LittensWantToKnow @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 😁

I would love to see Brandon Sanderson‘s “Stormlight Archive” on either the big or small screen. With weapons and armor made of glowing metal, magic giving people the ability to fly or craft illusions, and fairy-like spren manifesting for all sorts of emotions and elements, this would be breathtaking to see in a visual medium! 🤩 Something tells me @Branwen will back me up on this!

2️⃣ It‘s so different than I expected. Hollywood often portrays the monster as a mindless brute, but Shelly‘s original creation is more intelligent and dangerous! 😱

“I perceived in the gloom a figure which stole from behind a clump of trees near me; I stood fixed, gazing intently: I could not be mistaken. A flash of lightning illuminated the object, and discovered its shape plainly to me; its gigantic stature, and the deformity of its aspect, more hideous than belongs to humanity, instantly informed me that it was the wretch, the filthy dæmon, to whom I had given life.”

The monster trying to be stealthy ?

Thanks for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView and thank you for the tag @RaeLovesToRead 😀

1. Lying Cat from the “Saga” series. Who knew a cat that only says one word could add so much poignancy to a story?! 🙀

2. I appreciate a strong supporting character, but sometimes they can hurt a story if they overshadow the lead. In the tagged book I was more interested in supporting character Snow and didn‘t enjoy the parts when she wasn‘t around as much.

RaeLovesToRead Yes! Lying cat! 😻 And Ghüs! 🦭💕 12mo

“Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world. A new species would bless me as its creator and source; many happy and excellent natures would owe their being to me. No father could claim the gratitude of his child so completely as I should deserve theirs.”

4 out of five wind sprites! 🧚🏻‍♀️🧚🏻‍♀️🧚🏻‍♀️🧚🏻‍♀️

It‘s a few days since I finished this buddy read with the wonderful @Branwen and I‘m still processing my feelings. While I enjoyed the book, it is my least favorite of the series so far, as I felt the heroes stories went in unsatisfying directions. But while the protagonists got short-changed, the villains shined brighter than ever, thanks to the introduction of the fascinating Raboniel!

I just realized I still haven‘t posted a review of this book! 😳

1. Raboniel. She‘s everything a book villain should be: charismatic, clever, formidable, and usually at least three steps ahead of the heroes. She‘s so good at being bad, I almost started rooting for her!

2. I‘d like to see the main characters all get happy endings, but since it will be a Sanderson book, that ain‘t happening! 😭

TheSpineView I have been putting off reading this since it came out. I need to move it up my TBR list! 1y

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😌

1️⃣ Tagged! It can put a lot of pressure on a character to have the whole book named after her, but fortunately Moroda was up to the task!

2️⃣ Hmmm… good question! 🤔 I think usually longer book titles catch my eye more, but there is something admirable about a book that can grab your attention with just one word, like “It” or “Deathless”!

TheSpineView Thanks for playing and happy Tuesday! 1y

Thank you for this #WondrousWednesday @Eggs 😊

1. Multiple POVs. I love getting different characters perspectives on things, especially if their points of view on events in the book are different from one another.

2. I can only read in English.

3. I‘m a mood reader… but that doesn‘t stop me from making numerous reading lists that I never adhere to! 😂🤣

Alfoster Seriously! Why do we make those lists??😝 1y
merelybookish The pleasure is definitely in the making of the list! 1y
Eggs Crossing things off the list is so satisfying 👌🏼 Thanks for playing ❣️ 1y

DaveGreen7777 @Alfoster I think it‘s the same reason why we buy a book when it first comes out and then not get around to reading it for 10 years! 😂🤣 1y
Branwen I do the SAME exact thing with book lists! 🤣😂 1y
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen All great minds, am I right?! 😁 1y

Rhythm of War | Brandon Sanderson
post image

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView

1. I‘m hoping to finish both the tagged book and “Frankenstein” this month! I only have 50 pages left in Rhythm of War!

2. As someone who reads a lot of fantasy, I am so sick of everything being described as smelling of “jasmine”! C‘mon, fantasy authors, there are other scents out there! Also, like many readers, I‘m so sick of characters releasing breaths they didn‘t know they were holding! 🤦🏻‍♂️

RaeLovesToRead 50 pages?! You can do it, Dave! I believe in you! 😄😁 There was an interesting passage about Jasmine in the book I'm reading - I'll tag you... 1y
TheSpineView I have been putting off Rhythm of War since it came out. It is such a HUGE commitment and my hat is off to you for finishing it! 1y
Branwen I TOTALLY AGREE about the breath releasing thing! I always roll my eyes so hard when I come across it in a book! 😂 1y

Frankenstein | Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

It‘s so sad when we have to say goodbye to a member of our Litsy family. 😢 @sharread was such a sweetheart and she will be missed dearly.

Thank you to @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Professional_Book_Dragon @Bookwormjillk for organizing this #SharreadsReadathon Sharing for anyone who‘d like to participate

To honor Sharon, I‘ll be reading Frankenstein, a book she had listed as one of her Fall Favorites. Rest In Peace and fly with the angels, Sharon!

Bookwormjillk ❤️ 1y
marleed Oh I‘m sorry. I see how much joy this group gave her with the Christmas swaps and game. Peace to Sharon. 1y

Thank you for this #WondrousWednesday @Eggs 😊

1. “Starless Sea” by Erin Morgenstern, which I recently received from the wonderful @Branwen

2. “Eon” by Alison Goodman, which I recently gifted to the wonderful @Branwen

3. Tagged! In this alternate history, Jean Grey disguises herself as a man to sneak on a ship, and Angel finds himself falling in love with her.
(More in comments).

DaveGreen7777 Later when Angel learns Jean is really a woman, he reflects on how he loved her just the same when he thought she was a man. It was such a beautiful portrayal of everlasting love, as well as representation of LGBTQIA themes at a time when graphic novels almost never included them. 🌈 (edited) 1y
Branwen YAY! I hope you end up loving The Starless Sea as much as I do! 😃💕📚 I devoured both Eon and Eona and THEY WERE BOTH SO GOOD! 1y
Eggs 💖 Erin Morgenstern 💝 1y
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Awww, I‘m so glad you enjoyed those books! 😀 1y

The blizzard is in full effect here in Massachusetts! 😩🥶🌧 On the plus side, I should have some extra time for reading today while waiting to start the snow removal! 😁📚

DogMomIrene I was watching coverage of the storm earlier. Looks like you‘ll be getting in some cardio time for sure. 1y

Gissy Great excuse to read and since we don‘t have snow here, it looks pretty to me😳🤷🏽‍♀️☺️
BookBabe Pretty! I like @mcctrish ‘s idea 😄 I say just cozy up with a warm beverage, a book, and a blanket, and milk that snowstorm as much as possible! 😃❄️ 1y
DaveGreen7777 @DogMomIrene @RaeLovesToRead @TheSpineView @Suet624 @mcctrish @5feet.of.fury @Gissy @BookBabe Thanks, everyone! 😁 I just finished round one of the snow removal so I won‘t have to do it all at once tomorrow. Now I‘m staying inside the rest of the night and curling up with a book as many of you suggested! 😊 (edited) 1y
Branwen WOW. 😲 That is...a lot of snow! 😲❄❄❄ I hope you are enjoying your cozy bookish evening after all that snow removal! 💕📚 1y

Desha Over here on the west coast we‘ve been watching your storm in amazement...I don‘t know how you survive the snow! We visited Boston and Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha‘s Vineyard in September and it‘s hard to believe it‘s the same place! I loved it though when we were there!! 😊 Best wishes for good reading time during the storm!! 👏🏻📚 1y
DaveGreen7777 Thanks @Desha Sadly, we just get used to snowstorms after a while… it gets to the point where if we get less than a foot of snow, we just shrug it off like, “Hey, I don‘t even have to clean off my car for that little snow!” 😂 1y
Desha So funny! Here we complain and stay inside all day if we get a little rain! 🤪 Yes, we‘re wimps! 😂 1y

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😁

1️⃣ Not often, but every once in a while, if I‘m at an appointment where I‘m waiting longer than expected and I didn‘t bring a book with me, I‘ll start reading on the Kindle app on my phone. Desperate times and all that!

2️⃣ I love my Kindle Oasis, it even has a warm light option to read comfortably in the dark, so I don‘t have to stop reading for some silly reason like it being past midnight! 🤓

TheSpineView I do understand desperate times!😆 Thanks for playing! 1y

The Palace Job | Patrick Weekes
post image

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😁

1️⃣ Oooh, this is a tough question for me! Usually, I prefer books to have a quicker pace. However, there is something magical about a slow burn done right when the payoff is worth it!

2️⃣ Tagged! I‘m happy when a book has one great twist, but “The Palace Job” has one in almost every chapter. What started as a seemingly breezy heist story turned out to have many more layers than I was expecting!

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! Happy Tuesday! 🤩📖📚 1y

RaeLovesToRead Sorry, just realised their pronouns are they/them. Look forward to reading the book (and playing the trilogy again) 😊 1y
DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead Ooops, I didn‘t know their pronouns either. ☹️ Hope you enjoy the book! I don‘t recall it reminding me of Mass Effect or Dragon Age in any way, other than it features a team made up of several fascinating companions! 1y
RaeLovesToRead I'm always up for a fantasy heist ❤ 1y
PathfinderNicole I didn‘t know their pronouns either and changed my original comment accordingly! I can‘t wait to read this one, I might have to move it up my tbr… @RaeLovesToRead I still need to finish playing the legendary edition but I just don‘t want it to end yet!! 1y
RaeLovesToRead @PathfinderNicole On my phone it won't let me alter comments for some reason so I deleted mine and started again! 🤔🤔 I actually didn't get that far into mass effect the first time because I wouldn't leave the citadel until I'd scanned all those spidery things... and I couldn't find the last one 😭😄 Going to play the trilogy once I've finished Dishonored 2 😊 1y
DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead @PathfinderNicole I had such a love/hate relationship with the Citadel in Mass Effect 1! On the one hand, I loved the world building and the glimpse into so many characters lives. But on the other hand… WOW, was there a lot of superfluous fetch quests there, and the completionist in me felt compelled to do every single one! 😩 1y

Thank you for this #WondrousWednesday @Eggs and thank you for the tag @TheSpineView 😊

❄️ “The Winds of Winter”! Just kidding, if this post was made in the year 2032, Winds of Winter probably still wouldn‘t be out yet! 🙄 But the tagged book is a lot of fun with a sassy heroine battling a sassier villainess!

❄️ Not gonna lie, 2021 took a lot out of me. ☹️ This year I‘m hoping to get back into more fun things like reading.

❄️ My friends! 🤗

❄️ I‘m spending the day at my sister‘s. Last year my niece had a job where she had to work holidays, so we‘re happy she can join us on Christmas this year!

❄️ Brandon Sanderson, Gail Simone, Christopher Moore.

❄️ “A Chair of Anxious Fish”! Not exactly “A Game of Thrones” (or even “A Feast of Crows”), but I‘ll take it! 😅🤣

RaeLovesToRead Mine would be "A glass of sh*t and biscuits". Coming soon to a theatre near you ? Sorry you feel anxious. Sending mellow vibes ???? 1y

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😊

1️⃣ Truth be told, I‘m happy to visit any bookstore! But “The Last Bookstore” in Los Angeles sounds especially fascinating with its half-archway made out of used books… I‘d probably try to make out every book title before passing through! 🤓

2️⃣ I do sometimes bring a list with me when I go to a bookstore.. but I don‘t think I‘ve ever left a bookstore with ONLY items from the list I brought! 🙈

vivastory Last Bookstore looks incredible 📚📚📚 2y

Amiable I was literally at The Last Bookstore in LA just 3 weeks ago! It is just as incredible in person as it looks online. 2y

DaveGreen7777 @Amiable That‘s so cool that you were there! I hope to visit The Last Bookstore one day soon! 😀 2y
DaveGreen7777 @TheSpineView HA HA, I‘m noticing a common theme of “not sticking just to the list” on this Two4Tuesday! 😂🤣 2y

1️⃣ I haven‘t read them in a long time, but anytime someone mentions Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys, it instantly takes me back to all the kid mysteries I read as a child. I remember especially loving the tagged book as it had a supernatural slant and a ghost on the cover! 👻

2️⃣ Rainy days! 🌨

“He stepped softly through the library. Honorspren liked their books, judging by the extensive collection—but he rarely saw them in here. They seemed to enjoy owning the books, treating them like relics to be hoarded.”

Hoarding books but not getting around to reading them? Apparently if I were a creature from a fantasy novel, I‘d be an Honorspren! 🤦🏻‍♂️

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView and for the tag @Branwen 😀

1. I‘d gladly read about both witches and wizards! 🧙‍♀️🧙‍♂️

2. I‘m cheating a bit and instead of a book, I‘m going with my favorite series… Harry Dresden! Sure, most people would pick that “other” Harry‘s series, but the tagged book was my first foray into urban fantasy, and I loved reading about a snarky wizard interacting with all kinds of paranormal creatures! 👻🧛‍♀️

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 🖤🧙‍♀️🧙‍♂️ 2y

Hi, everybody! 👋

Thank you so much to all you wonderful Littens for the support you‘ve sent my way while my father was battling cancer. Unfortunately, we lost him on Thursday.
Dad, you were a wonderful father and a wonderful friend. We were so afraid we were going to lose you back in 2015 when you fought cancer the first time, and I am so grateful for that extra time we got together. I will always cherish my memories of you.
I love you, Dad, and I always will! ❤️

Buechersuechtling I‘m no native English speaker so I hope for your forbearance in case my words are wooden. But I wanted to reach out and let you know that I feel you. Last Thursday, it was 6 months ago that I lost my own father and I never would have thought it would be such a deep mark for a “before” and a “after” in my life because I never thought we were as close as we obviously have been. I‘m here if you wish to talk. And I wish you support. (1/2) 2y

Buechersuechtling Support from friends and neighbours … and maybe from people being strangers to you but having not been strangers to your dad. I deeply wish you have someone by your side whenever things get rough these days so that the way until you reach the point where you can recognise and appreciate warm memories and anecdotes will not be too lonesome and painful. Sending you my sympathy and your family my commiseration. All of you are in my thoughts. (2/2) 2y

I wanted to let you all know why I‘ve been inactive. My father was hospitalized after a fall last week, and now it looks like he will be battling cancer a third time. 😢 He has a biopsy scheduled for tomorrow, and we are also looking for short term rehab for him to regain his strength. Any prayers, healing energy, and positive vibes you could send him for a full recovery and another successful battle against cancer would be greatly appreciated! 🙏

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView and thank you for the tag @DarkMina 😊

1️⃣ Not sure if this counts as a fairy tale, but I always loved “The Starfish Story”. If that doesn‘t count, I‘ll go with “The Princess and The Pea”. It‘s a fun absurd story and it also inspired the hilarious musical “Once Upon a Mattress”!

2️⃣ Once Upon a Time the dogs were brought into the house and they were all good! (Awww, sounds like a happy tale! 🐶)

TheSpineView ❤🐕 Thanks for playing! 2y

Thank you for #WondrousWednesday @Eggs and thank you for the tag @DarkMina 😀

1️⃣ The Challenger explosion. I still remember the teacher sitting us all down to tell us what had happened and honoring the astronauts.
2️⃣ Bookstore. I want to have my own copy and know it‘s available to me at all times!
2️⃣ Tagged! As a kid I loved mysteries (Encyclopedia Brown, Three Investigators, Hardy Boys), but this one was like none I had ever read before! 😱

peaknit I was in 9th grade when the Challenger happened, that was a tough day. 2y
DaveGreen7777 @peaknit Agreed! I think I was in 5th Grade when it happened and I still remember the shock everyone was in. 😢 2y
Eggs Thanks for the thoughtful responses 📚👏🏻🤗 2y

RaeLovesToRead I love murder mysteries! Have you read The Murder of Roger Ackroyd? I scored a bit of an own goal when I googled And Then There Were None (the film) a month or so ago and under "People also ask..." there was "Why did [NAME REDACTED] kill everyone?" ... Thanks Google, you spoilery git ??? 2y
RaeLovesToRead I've just marked my previous comment as spoiler because (thinking idly), it occurred to me that [NAME REDACTED] killing "everyone" might actually mean "everyone" [!!!!!!] making it EVEN MORE SPOILERY than I initially thought. 2y
DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead In all fairness to you, that spoiler about killing everyone is really right there in the title, so I think you‘re okay! 😉 I have a copy of “Roger Ackroyd” but I haven‘t read it yet! 😩 2y
RaeLovesToRead @DaveGreen7777 I probably should have clocked on to that! *hides* 😅 Roger Ackroyd is a masterpiece... highly recommend! 2y

1️⃣ Hmmm…🤔 When I think of chunksters, I automatically think of the Wheel of Time series, so since the “shortest” book in the main series is around 700 pages long, I‘ll say 700 is the magic number of pages that makes a book a chunkster.📖

2️⃣ I prefer to read one, mainly because if the audiobook narrator isn‘t very good, it can make for a long listen! 😴

Also, tagging the largest book I‘ve read!

TheSpineView You're welcome and Thanks for playing! 🤩🌞📖😊 2y
The_Penniless_Author Funny you mention that, I'm reading the Wheel of Time books right now, and even though I gave "500 pages" as my answer to question 1, that number feels a lot less chunky at the moment. ? Especially since I'm on book 4, which is a thousand pages (a "double chunkster"?) 2y
DaveGreen7777 @The_Penniless_Author HA HA, that‘s how I feel about Brandon Sanderson right now! All his Stormlight Archive books are double chunksters! 😱 2y

He stepped away from the wall. Syl stood in the air beside him, inspecting the fabrial.
“So?” Kaladin asked her. “What do you think?”
“I think you‘re going to look extremely silly using it. I can‘t wait.”

Syl is THAT friend who enjoys her friends‘ embarrassment just a little too much! 😂🤣

JoyBlue OMG—good thing I hadn't just taken a sip of iced tea! It would have been a spit-take for sure! Thanks for making me crack up today. 💙 2y
DaveGreen7777 @JoyBlue Hee hee, glad I could give you a laugh today! 😁 2y

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😁

1️⃣ Sylphrena (Syl for short) from “The Stormlight Archives”. 🧚🏻‍♀️

2️⃣ Humor! I love a book character that can make me laugh! Urban Fantasy especially has so many snarky characters with laugh-out-loud dialogue like Joanne Baldwin, Harry Dresden, Justine Jones, and from the tagged book, Kate Daniels! I still chuckle when I think of how Kate met the Beast Lord… “Here, kitty, kitty!” 😂🦁

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 👍📖🌞📚 2y
DarkMina I always catch myself laughing out loud when I read any book from the Dresden Files. Love them! 2y
DaveGreen7777 @DarkMina The Dresden Files is one of my favorite series! 😀 🧙‍♂️ 2y

“The various humans continued their packing, storing everything in wagons for the day‘s storms. The humans were good at judging the arrival of those - though they were often wrong on the hour, they were usually right on the day.”

We‘re good at predicting the weather?! This book really is high fantasy! 😂🤣

Jennaree3 Anyone remember headlines on late night Jay Leno? Used to crack me up 2y
Prairiegirl_reading My husband always complains about the discrepancies between weather channels and I say you know what? It‘s either going to rain or it isn‘t.🤷🏻‍♀️ I think it‘s hilarious, he doesn‘t 🤣 2y

1️⃣ Pictured: My Kindle Oasis! 🤓
Also pictured: Absolute terror! 😱 (in the form of a Stephen King Funko and one of the very few books by him I DON‘T have on my Kindle)

2️⃣ I love how ebooks save me so much room in storage. If ebooks had never been invented, I may have had to get a second house just to store all my books! 😳

Bookwormjillk A second house filled with books kind of sounds like a dream. 2y
DaveGreen7777 @Bookwormjillk It certainly does! Well, at least until the mortgage comes due! 😳 2y
TheSpineView A house with nothing but books would be awesome! Expensive... but awesome! Thanks for playing! 2y

1️⃣ Tagged! Star Wars was a big part of my childhood, I even had SW toys and action figures. When this book came out, it featured the classic characters and portrayed them so authenticity, I felt like I was a kid in the theatre waiting for the Star Wars theme to start playing!

2️⃣ No preference, I‘ll read stories that take place in any country, real or imaginary!

RaeLovesToRead Aww bless! Star Wars was the first film I ever saw at the cinema (A New Hope). I'm always a bit scared to re-read books that were special to me when I was younger in case they turn out to be naff 😂😂 2y
TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 🤗 2y
Branwen I love this! 😀💕 2y

DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead Oh, wow, the first movie I remember seeing in the theatre was The Empire Strikes Back! 😀 I know what you mean, sometimes I‘m afraid to revisit old favorites for the same reason... I might wind up saying, “What was wrong with me for liking this?!” 🙈 2y
DaveGreen7777 @TheSpineView You‘re very welcome! 😊 2y
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen I knew you would approve of my book pick! 😉 2y
RaeLovesToRead @DaveGreen7777 It was the 1997 version that they digitally remastered (all the other releases were before I was born haha). I'm still saving up for a Lego death star 😅 And yes exactly! I was a lot less sparing with my 5 star ratings 10 years ago 😋 2y
Lauram I noticed you‘re not posting much. Hope all is well with you. ☺️ 2y
DaveGreen7777 @Lauram Thanks for checking in, Laura. My father was having some health issues, so I withdrew from social media for a while as I was just too stressed to participate. 😩 I‘m happy to say my father is doing better now, so I may be more active soon! 😌 2y
Lauram That is very stressful! I‘m glad your dad is ok and things are looking up. Have a lovely summer! 🙂🏖 2y
