Starting a new one tonight. The Little Prince is one of my all time favourites so I'm interested to read this.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one. I was immediately seized by the cover design and wasn't disappointed. Too often children's picture books are overlooked because of their young audience, but in Fierce Bad Rabbits, Clare Pollard analyses them with the respect and tenderness deserving of the tales that shape us.

Bailedbailed

Really thought I was going to love this but it was awful. There were times when the writing was so cringy I had to force myself to keep reading. I got 3/4 of the way through it because I was captive on an eight hour flight, but even then it just got to a point where I couldn't keep going. I have now put it on a community shelf at the apartment I'm staying at. Hopefully someone else might like it.

TobeyTheScavengerMonk I read and loved Cargill‘s movie reviews for years and was excited for this, but yeah, I did not like it at all. I powered through to the end and you‘re not missing anything by bailing. 4mo
LiviaLauren @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Glad I didn't miss anything. I always feel a bit guilty when I bail on a book but I felt like I was wasting my time. 4mo

I knew I'd like this. It's somewhere in between Tithe by Holly Black, which was my favourite book as a teenager, and Neil Gaiman's American Gods.

I'm was reading Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King but it's dragging. For me, it's one of those books that I have to nudge myself to pick up rather than one I can't put down.
I was idly browsing in Waterstones with my hubby today and this jumped out at me. I picked it up and was instantly sold. I haven't felt so randomly drawn towards a book for years and I'm so excited to read it. Stephen King will have to wait a little while.

I've always admired art, but have never felt informed enough to really get the most out of it. Hopefully this beautiful little book will go a way towards changing that 😊

CouronneDhiver Ha! That cover made me jump. 👻 8mo
LiviaLauren @CouronneDhiver It's definitely eye catching! 8mo

Mehso-so

Considering it was first published nearly 70 years ago, this book had a lot of really incredible foresight and raises some interesting ethical questions about the future of mankind and what it means to be human. I found the repetitive structure a little boring at times, and had to force myself to focus on several occasions but I can see why this is considered a sci-fi classic.

🧁The Little Prince. I read it when I was studying french in sixth form and have since bought copies in English. The story was so simple yet complex and beautiful. 💕

The robot in this part of the book reminded me a little of my husband. He's a very logical man and if he has reached a conclusion using his formidable reason, there is no convincing him otherwise!

Hi people of Litsy! This is my first post and I'm not completely sure how things work here but I'm excited to have a community to share my love of books with! I'm currently reading: I, Robot by Isaac Asimov, which is a departure from my normal tastes, but I'm really enjoying it.
