Loved the X-Men movies but don't care for the comics. The pictures just don't do justice to richness of the characters. You are welcome to disagree. 🙃

I have to admit the first thing I thought of was the TV show Gomer Pyle USMC. For those younger Littens, Gomer would say, "Surprise, surprise, surprise!" ?

#Journal

I have never been much on journal writing even though I have several. I just started back with my monthly TBR list. Pictured is this month's list. I will add to it. I plan on using it as a starting point every month.

jillrhudy This looks cool! I should do this in my bullet journal. 4d

Children of Ruin | Adrian Tchaikovsky
post image
Pickpick

This is the 2nd book in The Children of Time series. I put off reading because I have been disappointed enough times with sequels. I wish I hadn't because the 2nd was as good as the 1st. Fabulous characters and world building was out of this world (pun intended). Great plot that kept me interested the entire time. 5⭐

Aimeesue Yep, this one was very good. And not just because I love octopuses! I think the first book made me appreciate spiders more, too. (edited) 5d
esurient Oops! I confused at a glance Tchaikovsky's book with Moulton's of a similar title and was SO thrilled to learn of a sequel to a childhood favorite. Oh, well -- no sequel, just two more books to add to my TBR. That's really not bad... 5d

Thanks for the tag @RowReads1 🤗

These are my all time favorite covers both by the same author. They have cutouts in the cover. Very ingenious.

I am late to the game. If you want to play consider yourself tagged!

Centique I loved The Watchmaker and am excited to read the next one soon! Plus they‘re so pretty! 7d

With the summer winding down and cooler weather on the horizon it got me to thinking about what I want to get done before the end of year. I'm curious what other Littens are working on. Please tag me and use #Two4Tuesday when you repost.

Don't forget before the end of the year I will be doing an AWESOME giveaway. The winner will be drawn at random from those that participate in #Two4Tuesday.

@LitsyHappenings

My answers⬇️

TheSpineView 1. GoodReads goal is 75 books but I would like to break 100 this year. Currently at 71. Very ambitious especially since I have a couple of 1K to read. 1w
TheSpineView 2. Get in shape. While I have been more active it has not been as serious as I want it to be. My goal is to do an hour riding lesson without feeling like I have run a marathon. 1w
