So there's a new discount bookstore opened up here on Island... boyfriend made the mistake of taking me in yesterday 😅 I love having matching cover sets like this so much 🤩
Although I do now have a couple of duplicates that I'll need to find new homes for now, because I had the first book in each series but it worked out so much cheaper to just rebuy them with the rest of the series 🤔
I'm sure I'll think of something 😎

Birdsong28 I have this bookstore where I am and it is so cheap! Did you sign up for the loyalty card? You should do! 📚 📖 3w
Boooooks Oooh are they from The Works? 3w
TCLinrow @Boooooks it was 😊 they've just opened up here. @Birdsong28 no, there's a loyalty card 😀 better go back and get one 😅 3w

This was a decent story let down by weak characters for me. Jake was very 2 dimensional, and obsessed with booze and sex - but not in a way that was at all endearing - while Jenny seemed to have no real discernable personality of her own. Charlie was a convincing character, but he was irritating. And don't get me started on the pointless last minute romance that did nothing for the story.

The history was cool though.

A collection of fables, some of which I remember from my childhood. Suitable for all ages, and with some good moral, but not exactly riveting.

Fancied something short and simple today, and this definitely fit that bill.

marleed Years ago when my dad always bought new hardbacks I asked him why he didn‘t thrift or purchase paperbacks. He asked me how much I spent each time we went to the movie theater for 2 hours. Well, it was more than a price of a book! Then he suggested I could add least double that price for hours spent reading. I‘ve never forgot that lesson. Note: he bought a book the day he started reading so he had no TBR - unlike me. 1mo

"Books were often powerful. People assumed this was because of the words inside, but that wasn't quite correct. People held books for long periods of time, they concentrated on them, they communed. They worshipped. That was what gave books - some books - power. The hush in a library was reverential for good reason."

A strange and marvellous supernatural mystery. I don't know exactly how to describe it, but it was as strange as it was enchanting. The relationship between Rose and Mal seemed a bit weird and unnecessary, but other than that it was just brilliant. The ending for me was weird and wonderful and not at all what I expected.

The story was spun through a myriad of viewpoints, both current and past, weaved into an awesome landscape. The Labyrinth was wonderfully imagined, and easy to lose yourself in. The characters were fantastically realised and so perfect for the story. The magic system is complex, but relatively easy to understand so far.

I'm looking forward to the next part of the series.

My friend that I'm staying with forgot how fast I read 😅

Velvetfur Haha, so true! A few months ago a colleague asked how I was enjoying the book I'd showed him, which was the previous week and I'd finished it and started the next one, he said "wow, you inhaled that one!" - I just thought, no that's what happens when you actually make time to READ the book and not just stay on your phone most of the time instead ? 1mo
Scochrane26 I don‘t read fast but do try to read some each day. Earlier this summer, I was carrying a thick book & a guy made a comment about how long it was. 🙄 I wanted to roll my eyes but just said that it would take a little longer & wasn‘t a difficult book to understand. 1mo

Another amazing day in Prague 😊

Found a book shop open late, with books in loads of different languages, and watched a couple of street performers doing a fire show that was just amazing! It also made me think of the tagged, because they weren't asking for money but people (myself amongst them) were happily putting in any change they had while watching the performance, even though they didn't have to!

DivineDiana If you get a chance, read Amanda Palmer‘s memoir. It opened my eyes about contributing to street performers. 1mo

Review 2 of 2 😁 I love the cover of this edition 🧡

I found that I enjoyed it just as much as the first time. This time though, rather than enjoying the wonder of what would happen next, and which of the characters it would happen to, I enjoyed the intertwinedness of the characters and their stories. It was cleverly done, and reading it again took away none of the appeal.
Linger review on Goodreads for anyone interested 😊 #Reread

Review 1 of 2 for today 😊

A criticism of the current media industry. He addresses its unsustainable nature in light of the internet, and also how we don't need it to work because creators and fans will always look for a way to support their favourite creators for future content. He sites lots of examples like Patreon and GoFundMe projects.

A fascinating read, with lots of important ideas.

TCLinrow NB: Listened to it on audio book through Libro.fm and my only criticism was the annoying sound effects between sections, because they really got on my nerves very quickly. 1mo
slightlyfoxed I saw him give a really brutal talk on DRM at the TXLA conference a few years ago! He‘s a great speaker and an incisive critic - I enjoy his non-fiction writing more than his fiction. 1mo
TCLinrow @slightlyfoxed it was a fascinating book! It was clear how much work he'd put into it. I'd love to hear him speak, if this book was anything to go on, but the book was read by Wil Wheaton 🤔 1mo

I loved this book, and its adherence to historical context. It was well researched, the historical notes were fascinating, and it was still full of action, mystery&clever dialogue.
The narration was really good, with most characters having distinct voices or accents making it easy to differentiate despite the complex & similar names &titles.
A great read - I can't believe I put off reading it for so long!

Begrudgingly, despite the typos in the Manx folklore, this was a very interesting read. It mentioned quite a few types of fairy I had heard either very little or nothing about before, and the collection of texts was fascinating.

Forgot to post this yesterday 😅

I hate to say it, but for this a so-so is pretty generous. I liked the idea of it a lot more than the execution, and I don't know whether it was down to a below par translation taking away the original version or a poor choice of works... either way, this just about scraped together enough intrigue to make itself a so-so and I don't think I'd ever recomend it.

So I got called into work AGAIN and had to rethink all my reading plans 😕
This book was informative and fascinating, especially for the casual approach to acts of theft, violence and deception committed by the crew. It was also, however, very dry. There was a lack of any personality beyond the writer's hero worship of 'the general' Francis Drake.

After a slow start, it began to unfold rapidly, picking up pace and building tension magnificently. I spent the last half of the book on the edge of my seat, desperate to find out what would happen next.

There were predictable moments, sure, but there was always a looming dread of who was going to be next, and how it would happen

It was a fantastic, fast paced, supernatural thriller packed with mystery & tension in spades once it got going! 🖤
