So I stumbled across what the original ending to the film was suppose to be on YouTube my childhood has been ruined.. I love the ending they actually have where Seymour saves the day!! But now I won‘t be able to watch it without knowing the original uhh.. if you love this movie and don‘t know please don‘t look for it you will be sad after.. I only came across after watching an interview with the actress who plays Audrey

I‘m not sure how many of you are on YouTube and follow book tubers but I follow a booktuber called books and LaLa and she has similar reading tastes so I decided to challenge myself and read some of the books off her goodreads that she has read and rates high and did recommendation video on.. this is my second book and so far I‘m not disappointed

I‘m trying to catch up on my arcs from net galley yes I know some of them are already published but as long as I give feedback I‘m cool right.. and I also review on good read and amazon when I do my review on netgalley . The first half of the month will be focused on me doing my backup list

Every time a new book in the series comes out the publisher emails me and sends me a courtesy copy(finished) I‘m taking my time with the series I wanted to have a few before I started it again.. and it doesn‘t disappoint

So happy that hoopla has a few more of the audio books in the series.. I have discovered this month that I‘m a mood reader.. I have months where I will read 2+ books a month and then there are months like June where I didn‘t want to read but crochet I did read 1 physical book

So I have the arc but somehow reading fell to the side as I have been in a crochet kick.. finishing projects that have sat for too long. Now that I‘m down to a manageable number of 3 projects I can alternate 1 30 mins of reading 30 minutes mins of crochet

The Roman Hat Mystery | Ellery Queen

I had an uncle who had a collection of Ellery Queen and Agatha Christie.. when I was younger I used to always sit and look at the covers when I was there.. I had forgotten all about them until I found the audio book on hoopla. I figured I would finally check out those books that my uncle lived so much

I need a change of genre so some paranormal romance it is.. I don‘t read or listen often but any audio book I have listened to lately hasn‘t caught my attention.. so maybe something different will help.

Started this one yesterday and just finished I stayed up way too late but it‘s one of those I need to know what happens next book.. and it definitely kept me guessing..

So this one is next in my list but I have a feeling I‘ll be skimming to the parts that interest me most

It was an interesting story but I felt like it could have used a bit more detail about certain things.. I feel like something would happen and then it would jump to something else.. and the ending felt rushed like ok I get it they ran out of supplies and backup so they have to learn how to survive on the land like their ancestors which I believe was the point of the story.. but now@if the events felt connected and left me confused most of the book

Found the audio on hoopla so I can read it at home and listen when taking and picking up my son from school

Can you guess where I went this weekend.. went to visit family and my only request was to visit here.. having been in my 20”s when it happened and experiencing the fear of the unknown that day.. living in philly in the historic area and having the city completely shut down and the quiet.. The visit to the museum was an experience I will never forget seeing things up close from that day is so sad.. it‘s so eerie and quiet

Listening on audio from Libby during my bus rides from taking and picking up my son from school however I keep zoning out.. should I find a different version of the book

hjreviews After reading war and peace, I don‘t think I could ever listen to an audiobook for Leo Tolstoy. But i hope you find a version that works for you! 7mo
Melli I have a physical copy should I just read it instead.. I‘m thinking this is one of those books that an audio book doesn‘t work for 7mo

Well I throughly enjoyed this book.. I am a big Fan of Keirsten White and love her work. This was a dark and chilling twist on the story of Frankenstein. I think Mary Shelley would approve!

Listened to this one as an audio book as I was crocheting. Nice quick read/listen.
I actually have the ebook of this one and the 2nd book in the series but when I saw my library had it as an audio I had to get it. I loved the way that the author writes and the detail of the time period that she gives.. I will definitely continue this series. I guess it‘s a historical cozy mystery.. well however you would categorize it i loved it.
