I'm sure this would have been a 4 star book if I had read it in a timely manner. It just caught me in a reading slump. I did enjoy it and will definitely be continuing the series.

1) I found out that I will be getting 4 days off work (in a row!) later this month and I didn't even ask for it.
2) Don't reread often but have with Harry Potter in different formats.
3) ...What?
4) The Princess Bride

Has anybody watched this yet?

I've been putting it off because if it's as good as I think I will just binge watch it and it will be over in a few days.

Karisa 🙋‍♀️ It's fantastic! Clear a big block of your time and go for it! Trying to pace myself but have already gobbled down four episodes. 😂 1mo

I'm taking advantage of this one rain free day to sit on my balcony and listen to my audiobook / guard my seedlings from the squirrels.

wen4blu I put chili pepper flakes on the dirt and it totally stopped the squirrels from digging up my plants! 2mo
LouBeth @wen4blu Thanks for the advice. I will have to try that. Right now I put plastic bottles over the small stuff when I'm not there. 2mo

LouBeth @JanuarieTimewalker13 Not it was actually that guy taking about how he thought Camilla cheated on him. And how much they hurt each other. 2mo

I've already listened to the audio book but missed out on all the charts and illustrations. I decided to buy the book anyway because I will probably pull it out from time to time to remind myself about something in the book.

The endpapers alone...♥️

I haven't watch the show yet but I've heard so many great things about it and I think I set my expectations really high for this one. In the end this comic book feel a little flat for me because there was so much going on and it made it hard for me to connect with any of the characters.
I still plan to check out the show with equally high expectations.

Tashreads I really enjoyed the show! 3mo
rretzler I‘ve watched about half of the show and am enjoying it. I read one of the comics and it was just so-so. I loved comics when I was younger but most of them fall flat with me these days. I think perhaps in most comics (as opposed to graphic novels), there doesn‘t seem to be any real characterization. The pictures don‘t seem to tell as much of the story as words can. So I guess a picture is not necessarily worth 1,000 words. 😝 3mo
readordierachel The show is awesome. I tried reading the comic and was similarly underwhelmed. 3mo

X-Men Gold Vol. 3: Mojo Worldwide | Cullen Bunn, Marc Guggenheim

Mehso-so

I haven't read a ton of comics so it may just be my ignorance but this was very confusing for me. Apparently this jumps back and forth from X-Men Gold to X-Men Blue. I haven't read any of the Blue so I didn't want to jump into issue 13.

LoveToReadLiveToRead Oh yes, this was a crossover event between the two. I bet it was confusing if you‘d not read Blue as well. Plus didn‘t it recall some older x-men storylines? It‘s a while since I read it. 5mo

Cutting it really close... 😱

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Do you have a kindle? Pull it down on there and then turn off the WiFi and put it on airplane mode and it “should” stay until you turn those back on. 5mo
LouBeth @Riveted_Reader_Melissa It was an audio book. I quickly realized with my work schedule there was no way I would be able to finish on time. I was already loving the world building and the characters so went ahead and ordered the box set from Amazon. 5mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved the first book too.... I have to make time for the other 2 too. 5mo
