Speaking of Cinder, I watched the trailer of Alita: Battle Angel and it reminded me so much of Cinder and the Lunar Chronicles series. Has anyone read Alita the manga? Is it me or there are a lot of similarities in the stories?

#socialsunday @EchoLogical

1. Good ol' KS, USA
2. Romance first and foremost (yes, I love romance and I'm not ashamed to admit it 😊) followed by fantasy, urban fantasy and sci-fi.
3. Don't have one. Maybe Anne Rice or Jane Austen
4. Cinder! I only gave it a chance because it was a required book in one of my GR groups but I immediately fell in love with the series.

EchoLogical Have you read the entire quartet? Cress was my favorite. 5mo

Last read of the season although it was in audio. Even though the heroine was a little neurotic it was still ok. My only issue is that I'm not a fan of the falling in love with someone you hardly know in a couple of days, regardless of how badly you crushed on said person in HS. It still helped pass the time so it was 3 stars.

Uhmm... not for me. Half way in and I had to give up. I can appreciate good dark humor but the narrators sounded just plain bitter. And some of the "jokes" were so wrong ("the best part of the dressing rooms was seeing the [high school elves] in their underwear") Definitely a Pan for me.

I was offered an ARC for this book through one of my FB groups and I'm so happy for the chance! I had heard about this author but had never really read anything by her until now. Her characters were well-rounded and complex, the storyline went beyond the typical romance, and while most if the book took place in France, the author didn't use silly French accents to make the reader feel a real French setting 💖
Totally a pick.

Lessons learned:
No matter how much you think you know about anything, you don't.
Never, ever speak badly of someone with light years of experience in the business.
Grow up.

LauraBeth I have no doubt that her book is great and I was planning to buy it but now I‘m bothered that she decided to use the Twitter megaphone to falsely put another author on blast. The professional thing would have been to handle this privately with her publisher, editor and agent. Tomi‘s human and we all make mistakes - but this was tacky. (edited) 8mo
julesG It's not the first time that books with similar titles, or even the same title, are published. The tactless thing about this tweet is, IMHO, that she seems to have forgotten that Nora Roberts is a big player. Apart from that, there are a lot of books on the market with the phrase '(of) blood and bone'. 8mo
MarriedtoMrT @LauraBeth I agree. And to still have the tweets up? Why? 8mo

rubyslippersreads And I believe you can‘t copyright a title, unless the U.S. law has changed. 8mo
Bookzombie I‘m just really surprised at this. I thought nothing about the two titles when I saw the release info for Roberts‘ book. I don‘t think many people would have without Adeyemi pointing it out. As far as I know, @rubyslippersreads is right about the law regarding titles. Searching Goodreads I can find another book titled “Of Blood and Bone” published in 2012. And another called 8mo
Bookzombie Yes, I kind of fell down a hole. 😬 8mo
sprainedbrain I‘ve never read a Nora Roberts book, and I really liked Tomi‘s book... but I am rethinking reading her next book after this jerk move, and especially since she still hasn‘t taken the tweet (or the non-apology tweet) down. Not cool. 😒 8mo
JoRead @LauraBeth Absolutely. It's beyond me why anyone would make this kind of statements without any proof 🤦‍♀️ 8mo
JoRead @julesG And not only the title but to also go against the artist? I'm still baffled at the whole thing... 8mo
JoRead @MarriedtoMrT I wonder if she's trying to be famous by way of infamy. 8mo
JoRead @Bookzombie Perhaps she thought because it's a soon to be released book that Roberts was copying her, who knows 🤷‍♀️ 8mo
JoRead @sprainedbrain I had her book on my TBR but no more. I only hope she's learned her lesson but since her tweet is still there and no formal apology has been disclosed I seriously doubt it. 8mo

I want to learn more about the tragic events that lead to The Great War (World War I) but I wouldn't know where to begin. Anybody has any books to recomend?
#WWI #Armistice #ACenturyAgo

julesG Fiction or non-fiction? 9mo
julesG I think one of the questions you need to ask yourself is, how far do you want to go back? European history is full of small and bigger wars. In school, as well as at university, the French Revolution is seen as the first step into what is modern Europe. A lot of events can be tied back to the events the FR set in motion. Anyway, most historians will agree that Imperialism, Militarism, and Nationalism were the key factors. Your research should... 9mo
julesG ...start with these. That would mean, around 1870s/1880s. I cannot recommend any specific non-fiction books, nor a lot of fiction. Still, if you haven't read it yet, read the following book. 9mo

The Haunting of Hill House | Shirley Jackson
post image

So I figured since it's Halloween season it was a good time to watch something spooky. For all the hype I truly wouldn't call this show "horror" but it is suspenseful and spooky. But the best part of it was the family dynamics and the fact that no religion of any kind was involved (I don't think all supernatural phenomenon was created by evil or God.) I think Stevie in the show explains it best ??‍♀️??
Has anyone watched it yet?

AmyG I did and absolutely agree. It‘s more psychological and I loved the family dynamic part. I thought it was really good. 9mo
MinDea I loved the show except I was bummed by the ending. I would agree that it is spooky not horror but it did give my boyfriend nightmares so to him it is! 😆😆 9mo
WhatThePuck This show tripped me out more than one night. I had to sleep with the light on on more than one occasion. What was your take @Whimsical.Curiosity ? 9mo

JoRead @AmyG That family reminded so much of my sisters and me when we bicker and my poor brother trying to calm us down 😂 9mo
JoRead @MinDea I guess I was hoping something more horrific throughout the story but specifically the end, so I agree with you 9mo
JoRead @WhatThePuck I couldn't sleep but only because my brain kept trying to piece the pieces together 😂😂 9mo

I know I read lots of romance but this made me laugh so hard 😂😂 I guess I'm just a cynic at heart.

elizabethlk I love romance and that sounds delightful. 9mo

I tried, I really tried but I just couldn't finish it. Past 25% and the story has hardly moved forward. And I just had the feeling that more than a tale it was a failed attempt at a South Asian geopolitical and military artillery lesson. Hopefully that changes later but I don't have time for that when I could be reading something I really enjoy 🤷‍♀️

1. Can you believe I didn't read any of the children's classics until my late teens? I think my most "childish" book was the book tagged and The Little Prince and I wouldn't call them favorites ?‍♀️
2. Chocolate cake!
3. Is watching movies a hobby?
4. Near the beach.
5. Tagged! You're it!
