Another series I was missing out on! I was worried when I first heard the audio, since I wasn't sure what to make of the narrator's voice, but she was amazing!
Ahh! another intense ending--but resolved with the best send off ever (hush now, spoilers 😉🤫)

Eagerly awaiting the next book to come in.

staci.reads The series just keeps getting better too! 2d

A bundle of audio books came in from the library all at once. I got about 38 total hours with this digital haul, being a few hours into "Cinder." Here we go!

? Hatchet by Gary Paulson (I read the last few chapters to my nieces when I was visiting them in Argentina)
? Cabin in the Woods (haven't seen it, but that's cuz my interest is horror is relatively recent)
? -a random song from a middle school play that was gibberish because it was in "chlorophyll," the language of the aliens called "Chlorophyll." It was a wacky, garden-themed play-

Any recommendations for books on Ireland's history, especially the Norman invasion?

LibrarianRyan @Oldschool_millenial No. But there was an interview and they said it was all ready to go. I was wondering if it just didn't want to go up against The Lion King and Scary Stories to tell in the dark. 7d

Today's Facebook memory that greeted me.
Safe to say my sanity was hanging by a thread after 2 DAYS of fixing that dang page! ?
The book in question is tagged. I spent my last summer as a teenager working on the "color restoration" for that book (ie. partial recolor over what was there because there wasn't a budget to throw out the original hack job and completely redo it), and I wouldn't have it any other way

Night Witches | Kathryn Lasky

A random social media blurb about the Night Witches of WWII inspired me to add this to my TBR.

There *should* be a movie made about these women!

Rachel.Rencher I saw that, too!! 2w
Oldschool_millenial @Rachel.Rencher I wanna add a nonfiction about them to my TBR, but for now I'm easing in with historical fiction 2w
Rachel.Rencher @Oldschool_millenial If you find any good non-fics let me know. I want to try to work them into my lesson plans next year! 2w
Oldschool_millenial @Rachel.Rencher Sweet! To be honest I'm not much of a non-fiction reader, BUT this is an instance where I'll probably make a few exceptions 😅 2w
Oldschool_millenial @Rachel.Rencher A different topic: I don't know if this is in your curriculum, but I highly recommend this short historical fiction novel. I read it in class in seventh grade and it was the one and only time I even heard about Iqbal Masih until senior year of high school--and most of those classmates didn't know who he was. 2w

A bookmark I spotted at the bookstore yesterday 😆

I saw the movie in the theater having not read the book at the time, so I'm only now seeing how it watered everything down.
Luckily this audiobook has a full cast so it is very much like a radio drama!

I'll be in my corner grieving the end of the Swamp Thing series 😭
Got the Wes Craven movie, but it's not the same. DC $&*%ed up; not just cancelling but cutting from 13 to 10 ep to make a solid, standalone arc. It ended w/ a cliffhanger that will never be resolved, and we never got to see the Alec (ST)/Abby romance bloom.
It stings so much; once again, I got to see something Dad worked on brought to life and it was shot down.

A little #fanart I did while at Atlanta Comic-Con last weekend with Dad. He's known for his work on "Saga of the Swamp Thing" and I just showed him the first two episodes of the DC Universe series. I'm pissed that WB/DC decided to be jerks and cancelled subsequent seasons AFTER ONLY AIRING THE PILOT! ??
Not sure if the fan made petition to renew it will do anything, but at least it shows people want more.

I've been having a really hard time with friendships/relationships lately. I've had to let a lot of so-called "friends" go lately and I pay for it every time even though I know it's for the best ?

I can only hope that better people who love and embrace my wierdness (emotions- and personality-wise) will come into my life, but the optimist in me is down for the count right now.

Went to the bookstore today looking for a different book (see below) and I wound up walking out with Scythe #blameitonlitsy cuz I saw it on here a while ago. (Left it in my car and it's late, hence no photo of my copy)
Ran into The Surface Breaks because I was ruminating and searched mermaids on Libby as a distraction

This is honestly one the best hands down! I said it before, I am in love with this book series now. A section towards the end was especially excruciating to get through content wise (see spoilers 👇 ❗CW is first), but it was worth it to see our characters come out the other side afterwards with a sweet ending.
The bond between him and Claire is sweet and tender beyond words.... I friggin love Jaimie so much I could cry! He's so precious! 💕😭

Oldschool_millenial 👇💥CONTENT WARNING SEXUAL ASSAULT💥 3mo
Oldschool_millenial ⚠️ the arc in which Jack Randal, the main antagonist, coerces an imprisoned and tortured Jaimie into sexual favors. While we don't bear witness to it (THANKFULLY!) the horrific resulting emotional and physical trauma is on display. ⚠️ His recovery is believably slow, difficult and painful, and scattered recollections of the assault are conveyed more than bluntly described. ⚠️ Worth seeing him through, BUT PUT YOUR HEALTH FIRST 3mo

Whew! After months of picking through this almost-45-HOUR audiobook I am done! Holy crap this was an experience! Steven Weber's performance is jaw-dropping (especially in the finale) and King's prose is just as entrapping and cinematic!

Been on a comics kick since getting a 2-in-1 Chromebook and raiding the comics selection on Kindle Unlimited. I'm curious to see what later volumes of Umbrella Academy bring (this one was MEH for me); and Batman: Hush was awesome! Unfortunately, Jim Lee isn't immune to idealizing women in comics... 💢💢💢
