Read-y_Picker @TheQuietQuill Honestly It just brings back so many memories! It's by far my favourite book of the series (that I've read so far). I'm still peeved that Jon Davis didn't get to release his versions of the songs on the soundtrack... It's just not the same.

5feet.of.fury Girl With All The Gifts is one of my favorite of all time books! VenCo is pretty cute too! I‘m not having trouble putting together a list, I‘m having trouble narrowing it down to reality though 😂 8mo
Read-y_Picker @5feet.of.fury That's the thing! It's a list for Halloween... It's a list for any old Tuesday lol. My trick to narrowing it down was to focus on the #AAM and books on my list from last year that I didn't get through, with a few more from series I've been binging all year. Didn't even 👀 at my bookshelves... 🫣
I'm ashamed to have put GWAG off for so long. I've heard so many good things!
8mo
Justmissc87 Yes I had a really hard time. I added a lot of books from last year that I never got to unfortunately. And books that have been on my tbr for awhile. Plus, some new books that I really want to read or heard good things about. 8mo

Read-y_Picker @Justmissc87 I saw! It's a good list! A couple of those are on my TBR also, even if they didn't make it to my graphic. Also, I hope you enjoy our team read. I've seen the movie so many times I know it by hart but the book was still a joy. As well as the others in the series. 8mo

Fantastic rec @TheBookHippie!
This was just so sweet and heartwarming. Great characters and feel-good pretty much all the way through!
It made me sad that I was too young and involved in trying to know myself to really get to know my grandmother as a person beyond the wonderful, caring matriarch I remember so fondly.
My heart broke at the epilogue. Now I have to pick up a copy for my mom and sister to read.

So this happened 👆👆about a month later than expected but you can't control the slump so...
This book was a solid pick but definitely not a contender for best of the month.
Susan just can't seem to pick up and lead a “normal“ life since having fallen in with the Boooksellers and discovering her heritage as a half-mortal child of an Ancient god.
I didn't expect much from this sequel but it was cute, interesting, fast-paced and funny. Quite YA.

QUESTION: Is there a limit to how far up the bracket a reread should go?

Gather the Fortunes | Bryan Camp
post image
Pickpick

Death is both an end and a transition. Simultaneously a crossing over and the guide on that journey... Death is able to be every one of these and more -- all at once without conflict or contradiction -- because death is the end of all conflicts, is beyond contradictions. Both nothing and everything.
The only thing Death has never been is lonely.
Bryan Camp's writing is prose. This is an excerpt of the 1st paragraph. I read it a dozen times.

Haven't done one of these in a couple of months. Too hard to plan! But I'm gonna be honest: I've been looking forward to Salman Rushdie as #AAM all year and expect to read mostly him this month. So many of his works I've put off reading, including the tagged. I've started it a few times but didn't feel like I could give it the attention it required at the time. Wish me luck! 🤞🤞

The Saint of Bright Doors | Vajra Chandrasekera
post image

This story was so masterfully written it's hard to believe that it's the author's first novel. I hardly have anything to compare it to. Chandrasekera created an entire world rich in cultural lore, politics, religious ideologies and all in under 400 pages. The writing style is immersive, bright, rich, textured. It was like getting swallowed into another world and just leaving everything else behind. Read this if you enjoy Bardugo, Jemisin, Schwab.

“What happens when the walls we raise outlive the dangers they were built to keep out? At what point does a fort become a cage?“

I really enjoyed this story. It's kind of a Baba Yaga origin story, as discovered by her descendants after they inherit her infamous cabin on chicken feet. I personally connected with the historic theme of displaced jews in Russia. It really added depth and humanity to the Yaga history.
5 ⭐️

Read-y_Picker Finished it off with some traditional lore. It was interesting seeing the themes and events repeated throughout many variations of Baba Yaga stories. Definitely going down the rabbit hole this month. 1y

A naked cowboy ghost in the restroom, killer mutant raccoons, garden gnomes, hand plants (you read that right, don‘t ask), and a lot more… this novel by a real-life gas station clerk-turned-blogger is a veritable roller coaster of WTF-did-I-just-read to the very last page. 👏👏🎬 1y

@mitch I wanted to join in on the fun too so I listened to the audio of February's #goldenagecrimeclub. Sayers was a new-to-me author and I quite enjoyed this though I found it a bit confusing and might have done better to read it. It also felt like a good 20% of the book was the murdered explaining how he would have gotten away with it if it weren't for that meddling Lord Wimsey and co lol. But still good 3.75⭐️

Went into this totally blind, solely based on the hype and it did not disappoint. Not my usual genre... while there is an underlying element of mystery to it, this story is pure drama. In fact it's dripping with so much drama and glamour and secrecy that I almost forgot the big question that had been hanging in the background. I listened to the audiobook and it was a spectacular production, just brought everything to life! Highly recommend. #AAM

Ever start reading a book and it's loaded with so many hot words, popular themes that it feels like it was written by AI? Admittedly it had me laughing quite a bit at times as it‘s full of sarcasm, cursing and cheap pot shots. What can I say, I'm a girl of simple tastes lol. But seriously, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that no actual humans were involved in writing this.
Book #13 3.5⭐️ Soft pick. Don't know if I'll read the next.

Read-y_Picker Seriously. Anyone who's read this book... As I was nearing the end I was wondering how one could get AI to write a sequel in a series after wrapping up a first story. Then I wondered if the series was written as one looooooooong story and then just cut up and maybe adjusted a bit for polishing. And THEN this book had no ending! NONE AT ALL! I think I rest my case. 1y
Clwojick Okay but your review has me SO intrigued, and now I have to read it! Reminds me of the Hallmark Christmas movie script written by an AI.🤣 1y

The Book of M: A Novel | Peng Shepherd
post image

Now THIS is a well done dystopian. Mysterious, adventurous, magical. Things are happening. No one understands why but people have lost their shadows and with them their memories. This novel is loaded with action, emotion as the characters try to navigate the new landscape in the hope that there is a cure out there. All they have are snippets of gossip to keep them going amidst the fear that they could become shadowless at any point ⬇️

Read-y_Picker forgetting their loved ones, their place in the world, their destination. Will they find their missing families? Will they follow the rumours to New Orleans? Will they end up reduced to a pile of detritus, memorabilia abandoned en route when they have forgotten even the importance of the relics they carried for so long?

This was a great listen. Read by the author, it explores the history of his own book lust, his time working in and frequenting various bookshops in the Bay Area. He packs in a ton of history about book selling, book binding, early writing to publishing, libraries, renowned sellers and the future of reading and books themselves. I particularly enjoyed that with later releases he includes (2 in this edition) updates on the state of the trade. 4⭐️

New to me author. I looked up Erdrich as part of #AAM and it was really difficult to select a couple from her vest catalogue. It was pretty difficult getting back into reading reality after so long in fantasy land but I really enjoyed the tagged book.

Told from the POV of several people, the author explores the bonds between strangers and family in a small community in North Dakota over several generations. There‘s a LOT packed in here!

Here are my goals for #OutstandingOctober readathon! Starting with the tagged cozy paranormal mystery. Super fast-paced, not too annoyingly cutesy so far.
In the middle of The Nature of Witches for #SundayBuddyRead but I think I'm going to have to go ahead and finish early cuz it's just so good!

Saw this looking for a #scream for #scarathlondailyprompts and I couldn‘t resist. I‘m intrigued.

CogsOfEncouragement It is a very fun book. I borrowed it from the library a few Decembers in a row when my kids were young. 2y
Read-y_Picker @CogsOfEncouragement oh yay! That‘s good to hear 😊 I‘ve bookmarked it for the December readathons. 2y
