1. I always tend to answer with Harry Potter characters but I have to say Draco Malfoy. But also I feel from non Harry Potter thst Bridget Jones is fairly flawed but in a more realistic manner and I like her.
2. I don‘t like when authors use a lot of filler language just for making the book longer and isn‘t pertinent to the story
3. 11/22/63 by Stephen King or Becoming by a Michelle Obama
#wondrouswednesday

MoonWitch94 I don‘t know that I actually would go so far to say I LIKE Malfoy, but I would totally agree that I had warmer feelings for him by the end. And I did feel sorry for him a bit. I think I tend to use HP characters for these questions because I have read the books so often that I feel most familiar with the characters. 2y

My bingo board is actually looking pretty good. I have until May 31 to finish. I‘m reading the current book right now for a prompt that will give me a bingo. I also have 2 other books in orogrsss going towards this board. Any recommendations for some of the prompts I haven‘t done yet. #bookbingo #readingchallenge #recommendationsplease

Yet another 5 ⭐️ read for this year. In terms of reading 2020 has been wonderful with five 5 star reads! This is my first book i finished the weekend for the #socialdistancing reading marathon ! I loved how beautiful and heartwarming this was. I couldn‘t believe how much I fell in love with Ove and the rest of the neighbors . #heartwarming yet #heartbreaking

My reading tastes have changed by doing challenges because it really has broken me out of my bubble and I found new things I like. I learned that I really like family dramas, historical fiction, and graphic novels . I also have recently gotten into audiobooks
I would say anyone who has had a tough life but is still kicking ass inspires me.
More time for reading. More time with my fiancé. Teaching me how to be ok with no plans. #wondrouswednesday

#two4tuesday
1. I am bummed I didn‘t get to the library before they closed here. I think the bigger branch may still be open so if so I‘ll go tomorrow. However I do still have a decent amount of library books as well as my own books. Then I have audio books and ebooks plus libby. So yes
2. Toilet paper, butter, more frozen waffles and rice. Some meat would be nice too but overall we are good.

Catherine_Willoughby Too late to buy more books as panic buying by others in my city is making me spend 50% more on food 🤬 that could other wise cover all utility bills & some books off amazon. Can't get Eggs for two weeks. So badly need 12 eggs just do one fry up for the family 2y

#keeplitsypositive Love making sure my nephew loves books! I don‘t actually know what book my nephew is “reading” here but it was one I brought home from a trip. I bring my niece and nephew at least one book from my trips usually written by a local author and/or illustrator and often about that place. I want them to travel with me through reading! #raisingreaders

#middlegrademarch !! Loved this fairy tale expansion of the Neverland world. This is about Wendy‘s great great grandchildren. A cute and quick read. I really loved that the main character had Aspergers and it showed the struggles he goes through and I really liked how accepted he felt in Neverland. I also loved the adventure that they all experienced. The tie in to mythology was really interesting too.

As someone who lives with a #mentalillness this prompt is really important to me. I have had lots of struggles with my illness and I have to remember that I‘m not “crazy”. I think it‘s so important that there are books out there with main characters that have mental illnesses as that is one of the steps to breaking the stigma. I haven‘t yet read this one but I really must. #booksaboutmentalillness #magnificentmarch

jessinikkip That is one of the things my therapist keeps calling me out on, when I call myself crazy or talk about being "ridiculous". She keeps telling me I cant talk about myself like that because its not ridiculous to have an emotion 2y
OriginalCyn620 Thank you for sharing that. I hope books like this do help break the stigma. I did love this particular one...it made me ugly cry. 😭 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thank you for sharing... I stacked this one... my mother suffers from multiple mental illnesses and it‘s been difficult for many years. I also have some depression and anxiety at times. I‘m glad there are more resources, acknowledgment, and treatment than there was years ago... ❤️ 2y
