I‘ve seen the movie before, but never read the book, so I thought I‘d give the audiobook a shot. It was a fun quick read, and a cool way to spin Greek mythology into a new story. While I enjoyed it, I‘m not sure I‘ll continue with the rest of the series. It was fun, but I‘m definitely much older than its intended audience, lol.

TheBookKeepers I felt the same! But my 10 yo son freaking devours all his books! I always recommend it to younger readers 14h
Annl I am reading the series bc it was recommended by one of my tutoring students. It is an easy read for these last couple of weeks of school. 14h

This was such a fun book and I laughed a lot! Seriously, there were times I snorted while reading on the metro 😂 but I also felt a pull at my heartstrings, and shed a few tears along the way. The characters were so well written, and I feel a closeness with Josie and Delia since I also have a show (podcast vs tv in the book) with a group of my girlfriends. This was my first Zentner book, and I‘m looking forward to reading his other books.

Why Not Me? | Mindy Kaling

Pickpick

A fun, quick audiobook. I listened to the whole thing in one evening! Nothing earth-shattering, but it was cool to hear a bit more about Kaling‘s life, and she‘s a great narrator. The only thing annoying about the audiobook is a section where she‘s imagining her life as a Latin teacher if she hadn‘t made it in Hollywood, and it‘s told thru work emails and texts, so her listing the subject line, time/date stamp, & signatures of each email got old.

Emma (Revised) | Jane Austen
post image
Mehso-so

I did end up liking it more during my reread via audiobook than in my initial read 10 yrs ago, but it‘s still one of my least favorite Austen. It‘s not terrible, but it‘s so long! There are some delightfully ridiculous characters and the audiobook narrator did an amazing job conveying them, but it was slow and meandering in certain points. All-in-all, a pretty fun read, but I would not recommend reading it as your first foray into Austen.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa It‘s funny, I‘ve read my way through almost every book of Austen‘s...except this one. It just never sounded as interesting to me as the others. 1w
feminismandyoga It's my least favorite too. It just feels like she's messing with people's lives. But the high school adaptation from the '90s is my face adaptation of any book ever. 1w
Merethebookgal @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yeah, it‘s funny bc it‘s some people‘s favorite Austen, but it‘s not on the same level, in my opinion. You could check out the abridged Audible version with a cast recording that‘s like half the length of the actual novel, or you could just watch Clueless bc that‘s an amazingly fun movie retelling 😄 1w

Another dark, intriguing book about beauty set in a world that seems idyllic but is rotten just beneath the surface. In book two that rottenness is in full view and I had a hard time putting is down!

It was okay. The magic concept with the music was really interesting, but I didn‘t feel very invested in the characters, and the constant 20-year jump in time didn‘t help. This is a relatively short book (under 300 pgs) but it took me foooreeeveeer to finish, and the last chapter was so completely unnecessary it actually made be a bit angry lol.

My least favorite of the 3 books; not terrible, it just didn‘t hold my attention as well as the first two. (It probably didn‘t help that two of my favorite characters died in the last book.) I‘d still recommend the cast recording audiobooks for this series, but the voice actor they used for a little girl from Puerto Rico had a pretty strong New Yorker accent (not sure which borough lol) and it was a bit off-putting.

Hooked_on_books Totally agree about the Puerto Rican kid! That was so odd. But I loved the author‘s contribution and accent. I thought he did a great job. 3mo
Merethebookgal @Hooked_on_books It really was odd! Especially considering everything else with the cast recordings was done so well. Which character did the author play? 3mo
Hooked_on_books @Merethebookgal I was under the impression that he was Vincent. I googled around and can‘t seem to confirm that, though. 3mo

Pride and Prejudice | Jane Austen
post image

I quite enjoyed my reread via audiobook! Hate to love is always a fun trope, and I‘d forgotten how ridiculous most of the Bennet family really was throughout the course of the book. I also forgot that one of the most quoted passages about “there is no enjoyment like reading” was actually said by Miss Bingley and is quite satirical seeing that she had no interest in books. But that‘s Austen for you! #ardentlyaustenbookclub

jmtrivera I'd forgotten that too! Oh, Miss Bingley. You'll never know how wrong you are. 3mo
Merethebookgal @jmtrivera Right?!? I know bookworms love using that quote, but now that I remember the context it makes me double-think getting it on a tote bag or something 😂 3mo
jmtrivera @Merethebookgal That's how I've always felt about "When in doubt, go to the library," which bookworms love, but is said by Ron as a joke about Hermione. Then again, just because these bibliophilic quotes were said in jest, does that make them less true? Joke's on you, book haters! ? 3mo

This was a bit of a slow burn, especially after reading the Six of Crows duology, but it was so nice to be back in this world and with these characters!

Merethebookgal @JanuarieTimewalker13 Honestly, I wasn‘t a huge fan of the original trilogy, but I LOVED the Six of Crows duology, and King of Scars has the most interesting people from the original trilogy and a character from SoC set after the duology, so it‘s definitely good to read those first 3 books for the world building, magic system explanation, and to get to know the secondary characters. 4mo

What a poignant, heartbreak, uplifting, insightful book! In the same vein as Lab Girl this is an interesting melding of memoir & non-fiction. The author is a falconer, but after her father unexpectedly dies she tries to cope w/ the loss by training a goshawk, which are notoriously difficult birds. She also weaves in T.H. White (author of The Once and Future King) & his life as well as his experience training a goshawk in his book The Goshawk.

I‘m choosing “Pick,” but it‘s not a super strong pick (like 3.5/5). This is the first book in a new series, but the world and some characters are from another series, and I think she did a good job establishing the world & history for those who haven‘t read the original series (like me). There were some really funny parts, and other parts dragged. It also needed some tighter editing (missing words, redundancies) but was still a fun read overall.

While the new information given to the reader as well as the new POV were great additions, overall I found this book to be much slower paced and it didn‘t hold my attention nearly as much as the first book.

I try to read fairly widely, and I know my favorite genre is Fantasy, but surprisingly less than half the books I read were in that genre. I‘m also surprised by how many Memoirs I read and how few Graphic Novels I got around to reading. I didn‘t realize how few ebooks I read this year and that audiobooks would take the lead! I also know that I read a ton of Young Adult Fantasy books, but, hey, there were some Adult Fantasy books in there, too! 😄
