You do not know how excited I am to start this very thin book..... I may be one of the few people in my generation who is adamant that my children and their children and their children and so on will all learn the magic of handwriting

Suzze I can't imagine not knowing cursive. It was very important in my schooling. I think anyone who had nuns teaching them in the 50's/60's has excellent handwriting. 3y
CrowCAH Yay! I write in cursive, printing is too slow. 3y

I have no words except for "When the hell does book 3 come out??!!??" Absolutely loved the continuum of Dinah's story and seeing that classic Queen Of Hearts rage slowly build inside her. Great twists and gut-wrenching moments throughout. Chessie and I really need the rest!

Gotta love working in a library and seeing the most random books come in..... I'm one of those people who is deathly afraid of clowns yet adores Harley & Joker.... going to learn how to protect myself from the other ones while indulging on my cherry soda from the best 50s diner in the Lower Mainland ! #clowns #50sgirl #cherrysoda #fortlangley

When you go to see a musical and the first priority is to find a book.... I love going down to the states to buy my ya novels as even with exchange it works out a little bit cheaper than the Canadian prices plus taxes

Night Circus | Erin Morgenstern
post image

This is literally one of my favourite books of all time and I am soooo excited for another carnival themed book that is coming with next months #owlcrate!!! They also promise a Night Circus themed item which is making me over the moon. I will always love magic and carnivals even though I am deathly afraid of clowns and dolls.

rubyslippersreads A big part of the reason I love The Night Circus is that there are no clowns. 😄 3y
Library-Belle @rubyslippersreads I almost wish that she did put in clowns in one of the rooms because even though I'd be in total terror coming up to them in real life, I don't mind reading about them and having that bit of terror 3y

Figure Skating: A History | James Robert Hines

Best way to spend a day off... watching figure skating (I miss it so much) while drawing, planning, writing, and waiting for the FedEx truck/ Canada Post to deliver my #bookishbox and #bookdepository orders :) I love that they are showing #StarsOnIce before finally showing #CanadianNationals

Absolutely loved the characters and their free flowing sarcasm.... at first I was hesitant on a novel based in 1919 that had known "magic" mixed into reality but it really did work quite well... now I don't know what gangsters ever did with out hemopaths! It has earned its spot on my 1920s shelf next to Audrey and Hemingway

Bette ❤️Audrey 😊 3y

My other fave shelf because I can't get enough of fairy tale retellings especially if it is Wonderland themed....however most of my Dorothy Must Die collection is currently with my cousin and Heartless is beside my bed as I still get over my love for it

My long time fave classics will always be the original Oz stories.... But I can't deny my absolute love for Dorian Gray.... If I did that it would be an absolute injustice to my soul. This is only one of my three copies of this novel, but it is my favourite copy

The song makes me cry when I hear it and the book did an even worse job.... I'd love to see more artists take their songs and put them into novel format so we can get an even more fleshed out story out of it. #somethingforsept #mademecry

Library-Belle @thegirlwiththelibrarybag she was completely correct... Now I just hope she saves me a copy of number three when it comes in paperback! I can't buy it hard cover or it will ruin the continuity 3y

I can't believe that I'm this late to the Peregrine bandwagon.... I will admit that it's Eva Green who is making me want to read the book so I can see her in the movie.

Because I don't have a full time job yet (still a student and will be for a few more years) I'm doing my #workplacebooks as my future career(s)....

becausetrains @Library-Belle best of luck! I know a number of people who went through the Oxford online museum studies program - maybe you could just do it in person and commute from Edinburgh 😊 3y
