Anne of Green Gables | L M Montgomery

Listening to Rachel McAdams narrating this novel was such a treat! She was able to bring so much life and character to the story that I‘m not sure I would‘ve gotten if I had read it myself. Now I need to watch the Netflix show and read the graphic novel and get a nice hard bound set of all the books.

LibrarianRyan There is a new book that is a modern retelling called Anne of Manhatten. It came out this month. You might give it a try. 1y
Esmerelda1rm Thanks! I‘ll definitely take a look at that one! 1y

A disturbing look at how a little boy grows up with violence and poverty.

Interesting interpretation of the classic novel, but I kept thinking of Disney‘s A Christmas Carol while reading it. Goofy made a great Marley.

I liked it very much until I got to the end. He lost me after the fifth time he referenced his own publications. That got annoying really quickly but it was still a fascinating listen on audio.

The Language of Good-bye | Maribeth Fischer

“Annie has often wondered then if it was true, the most important things in people‘s lives were also the most sorrowful, if saying good-bye altered a person in ways that saying ‘I love you‘ could not.”

Finished this book today and I‘m still not sure how I feel about it. It was beautifully written with rich details and language however I have absolutely no Idea what the plot was. It felt like the story ended half way through but the characters didn‘t get the memo so they just kept going for another 250 pages. It had an “Alice in Wonderland” vibe.

I picked this book for a fall reading challenge on Goodreads and I really liked it. I don‘t read cozy mysteries very often and it was nice to read something different. I loved learning about bee keeping while solving a murder in a picturesque Wisconsin town. It was delightful!

RIP Terry Goodkind, your work was my first taste of epic fantasy and I will be forever grateful. I‘ve read Wizards First Rule three times in my life and every time I finish it I‘m left emotionally spent. Your words will be missed.

Happy Labor Day to everyone! I treated myself to a little trip to Half Priced Books and found a signed copy of “A Better Man” by Louise Penny. I have a weakness for signed copies, the fan girl in me can‘t resist! #bookhaul

Book was wonderful. I just finished reading it, it‘s so good I‘m letting my kid read it. I thought the combination of gardening, a gay love story and the supernatural was endearing. This was my type of comic book!
