Oh look at this challenge I somehow haven't been paying attention to! #marchintoreading day 29 #bookbag I have A LOT of bookish tote bags and these are my faves. The one with Neil's face has a quote on the back that says "We have an obligation to imagine." The @strandbookstore Make America Read Again bag has my fave bookish pins on it! Read Or Die tote from @bookriot ??☠️

Norse Mythology | Neil Gaiman
post image
Pickpick

🌟🌟🌟🌟 I really loved Gaiman's voice in these classic myths, my particular favorites were the wall and the poetry ones. I can't help but miss so many myths that are lost to time that we will never read - Gaiman points this out himself in his introduction. My only gripe is the last myth - of Ragnarok - is written in varying tenses from one sentence to the next. From a historical perspective I get it, it just took away from the enjoyability of it.

Downloaded some audiobooks for my commutes this week while knitting. I'm LOVING both the story and narration performance of A Natural History of Dragons!

Bethsh I love to knit and listen to audiobooks! 3y
TheLadyHyatt @Bethsh it's the best way to multitask!! Highly recommend this audiobook for both story and performance 😊 3y

After the first story I just couldn't. I picked this up on a recommendation from The Guardian as a "Book to give you hope" but I just can't see that, and I just can't see past the very tired male literary perspective and style.

Eyelit Good to know. Thanks! 3y
TheLadyHyatt @Eyelit 👍🏻 3y
monalyisha I just finished it and I‘m completely FLUMMOXED by that description! “A book to give you hope”?! In one of the stories, a man literally poisons himself with rancid deer meat because he can‘t stomach who he is or what life is. WHAT. 2y

????REALLY enjoyed this book! Schwab described her book best, as "Sin City PLUS Romeo and Juliet MINUS the romance PLUS monsters!" And I can confirm that it's accurate. Schwab is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors ?

I tried really hard, 105 pages, and I just couldn't get past the narrator's style. I found the plot to be very interesting but the style was just too off putting for me to push through. Life's too short, let's move on!

Genrebending Loved this one, but I think it broke my brain. 3y
TheLadyHyatt @Genrebending I'm enjoying the build up of the plot right now (only 50 pg. in) but some of the odd style switching keeps throwing me off. But I persevere in the name of book club! 3y

Mehso-so

I loved the art style of this 1st volume, especially all the underwater-scapes with monstrous eels & leviathan and the ships & suits these future humans use. I enjoyed the overall message of hope & persistence, but was put off at times by the story, especially the language & the unnecessarily scantily-clad women. Even in a far-flung future world that didn't ring true for me. Probably won't continue with the series, but don't regret picking this up

My #FunFridayPhoto book with a character I identify with... Carolyn from The Library At Mount Char. I got very strong Buffy vibes from Carolyn and her actions at times, that's really all I need! I was the only person in my book club to closely identify with Carolyn, everyone else disliked her or didn't want to be like her 🤔 @Liberty

sherrynuts I loved Buffy! I have been known to re-watch it when it airs. I'll read the book. 😁 4y
TheLadyHyatt @sherrynuts I hope you like it! I'm planning to re-read it soon once I clear out a few long-standing TBR titles... 3y

I've been so distracted with Pokemon GO and work that I've neglected reading and my Litsy account lately.

Found this in The Strand yesterday, the art reminds me incredibly much of Transistor and has a cool plot line. Hoping it lives up to my expectations! #FridayReads
