I discovered San Diego children‘s author Kathleen Krull last year at the virtual lecture. Such an enthusiastic writer whose research uncovered ordinary people with extraordinary ideas kids could relate to:giants in science & women who break the rules.Sadly Krull passed away this year, but her engaging books live on. This one lauds amazing Frances Perkins, staunch advocate for workers‘ rights.

What better way to celebrate Halloween week than with Elvira—and her honest, eye-opening & truly inspiring memoir.I‘ve been a fan for years ever since she skewered the corniest sci-fi films on Movie Macabre with her witty repartee to her outrageous live performances at Knott‘s.This Queen of Halloween aka Cassandra certainly had a rough road of frightful events & heartaches, but she overcame them all being resilient, fearless & true to herself.🙌🏻

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I love all your autographed memorabilia. This was a great read. 1mo
UwannaPublishme @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I think we even have a stand-up of Elvira somewhere! I just love her. Agreed! This was a page-turner for me too. 1mo
PurpleyPumpkin Wow, that‘s an awesome collection! Sounds like a great book too. 📚 1mo
UwannaPublishme @PurpleyPumpkin Happy Halloween my friend! Hope your weekend will be filled with many treats. Oh yes, this one is definitely on my list of favorite reads this year. 🤗❤️ 4w

Started off my Halloween month with this spooky fun YA graphic novel by Reading Glasses podcast cohost Brea Grant. Loved the funny quips, creepy twists, quirky ghosts and especially the perplexed great x 5 granddaughter trying to live up to her famous ancestor‘s legacy. A perfect homage to author/radical thinker Mary Shelley. Brilliant premise...hope there‘s more to come.

What a moving and nostalgic journey through the amazing career of Anna Marie “Patty” Duke! She shares untold stories about the people who touched her life, the films & TV shows that made her proud and the family and friends who stood by her during her struggles with mental illness. Loved reading about Patty‘s conversations with Helen Keller and her stint as “Queen of the TV Movie.” She certainly made her mark on the world and left us too soon.😢

UwannaPublishme For all my Trek friends, I had to include the photo of Patty and William Shatner. Yep, they did a TV movie together! 😊🖖🏻 2mo

I almost expected this to be a fantasy tale. But when your vineyard is on a farm in Kenya, next to a game preserve, you really will find hippos(and other animals)eating your grapes! A sweet story about a young boy learning to handle responsibility, a community that comes together when neighbors are in need & a crop in Eastern Africa that still thrives today due to the unique climate & rich soil.

This inspiring book is billed as a “spiritual” memoir, where the dashing actor extraordinaire Sidney Poitier recounts childhood stories and life lessons that shaped his strong moral compass. He only chose film roles that would make his parents proud and honored the legacy of his family. He broke barriers and struggled for his artistic integrity, and I adore him even more after reading this. I‘ll be rewatching many of these movies this week.🥰

I‘ve learned so much about my Slovenian heritage from this fun memoir/travel guide #setintheBalkans for my #ReadingwithMaja challenge. I can see why author Noah Charney is considered Slovenia‘s biggest cheerleader. I loved his funny & colorful stories about this beautiful country and all of its hidden gems. I even discovered new musicians, traditional foods and Bill Murray trivia! My only gripe: no photos were included.

Cheers to our amazing bookmark swap host @cwarnier

magyklyXdelish I‘m glad you like them! Also I think the finger one is supposed to stretch vertically over the front or back half of the book and you can have it point to where you left off. I haven‘t had a chance to use one yet but that‘s how I‘d try :) 4mo

What a witty MG book about a boy who spins quite a wild tale about his summer vacation! While chasing a stolen treasure map, he winds up traveling the world and beyond, meeting the kookiest characters. It even ends with the coolest twist! Why haven‘t I read more of the 90 books written by this clever Italian author and cartoonist? And to think of all those boring summer essays I turned in when I was a kid! 😁

Saint Maybe | Anne Tyler
post image
Pickpick

Anne Tyler wrote this one, her 12th novel, over 30 years ago—and it‘s still a masterpiece in my book! Saint Maybe is a rollercoaster ride where love, guilt, family, self-sacrifice and second chances can turn our lives upside down and all around, yet still allow us to land back on our feet again. The tagline from its vintage movie adaptation sums it up quite well: “Sometimes life leads us to where we least expect it and most need to go.” 😍🙌🏻

PurpleyPumpkin Glad to see that you found another AT winner! How are you these days? Hope all is well in your parts. 💜 4mo
UwannaPublishme @PurpleyPumpkin Hello you! Yep! She‘s my go-to when I need a few smiles! Busy here, but doing well. Hope you‘re having a warm and wonderful summer, my friend! 🤗❤️ 4mo

Here is my #crimethriller for June for the #ReadingwithMaja challenge. I hope this entertaining novel qualifies since it‘s a thriller with several mysterious crimes plus a sassy septuagenarian librarian, a very astute Persian cat, a curious yet sluggish pug and a plot centered around a well-loved bookmobile called “Words on Wheels.”

This sharply written short story collection shook every one of my senses. It‘s funny, gritty & haunting. Some stories were tough to get through, especially those about incarceration, addiction & abuse. But Lucia‘s gripping writing style kept pulling me back in. This manual reads almost like a memoir. But as Lucia‘s son revealed, “Ma wrote true stories, not necessarily autobiographical, but close enough for horseshoes.” 😉

Who would have thought that our beloved Herman Munster aka vintage actor extraordinaire Fred Gwynne wrote and illustrated 9 children‘s books! Fred depicts how children misinterpret everyday phrases with his ingenious play on words and literal meanings. What a hoot! Loved Fred‘s memorable characters and so happy to discover that he was a creative author as well.

What a deliciously satisfying sequel! Revisiting all the edgy & endearing characters from Fried Green Tomatoes made my heart sing.Purchased my signed copy to support Fannie‘s favorite charity:Free2Teach. “I was lucky enough to have had several wonderful teachers in my life who encouraged me even though I am dyslexic to keep trying and keep fighting," says Flagg. "If I hadn't had these teachers, I don't know if I would have ever started to write."

PurpleyPumpkin What a lovely quote, so inspirational! 💜Glad you enjoyed the sequel. You know, I still haven‘t had a chance to read the original! 😳So many books, so little time. 📚 7mo

An amusing premise about a meek postal worker and his over-the-top obsession with the beloved author. Loved the trivia tidbits, book references & especially the volleying conversation on the profound impact that women have had on Ernest‘s writing life. Too bad the ending chapters felt rushed, bungled and a bit weird. Still, I must thank @TheAromaofBooks for picking lucky #BookSpin number 13 to coincide with the new Hemingway PBS documentary. 🙌🏻

One reviewer said readers either adored, despised, DNF‘d or found this book oddly comforting. I‘m going with the latter! Yes, there were many digressions & nonsensical twists.(No wonder it was first serialized in a kid‘s magazine.)But Diamond‘s mystical encounters with the North Wind were utterly mesmerizing. I couldn‘t wait for more! Plus Diamond captured my heart with his curious & compassionate nature.

Mehso-so

I expected more juicy gossip in this vintage 1944 memoir by the famous movie columnist. The title is a nickname from her peers since her writing style was too chatty with reckless disregard for grammar & fact checking.Oy!😬 Too much self-grandeur for me, but still some fun stories about movie icons like Pickford, Gable, Hayworth & more. Plus cool backstory about Parsons‘ longtime newspaper boss William Randolph Hearst!

Just So Stories | Ruyard Kipling
post image
Pickpick


What a cool dad Kipling must have been to concoct these outlandish bedtime stories for his “Best Beloved” daughter Effie! If he didn‘t tell them “just so” or altered one word, she‘d correct him! My favorites: how elephants got their trunks and how the first letter was written. But I had to agree with the once humpless camel. I, too, would rather sit still and “frowst with a book by the fire.”

This is Anne Tyler‘s 15th novel, which she wrote after the passing of her husband of 35 years. She fills almost every chapter with family parties & celebrations of life, but you still feel the hurt and loss as central character Rebecca(also a recent widow)questions her choices and self-worth. Anne certainly knows how to serve up a true slice of life topped with plenty of wisdom. Also loved the 2004 film version with Blythe Danner & Jack Palance.😍

CarolynM I liked this one a lot too🙂 9mo
UwannaPublishme 😊👍🏻 Yay! Uncle Poppy was my favorite next to Beck. He made me laugh out loud and taught me a lot. 💕 9mo

Hard to believe out of all of my books, this was the only one I could find with a heart on the cover for Feb‘s #readingwithmaja challenge. It‘s a cute and entertaining series by actress/activist Alyssa Milano packed with plenty of girl power and positive lessons on speaking up and finding your voice. It even helped me reminisce (with much embarrassing laughter!) about my own Science Fair projects way back when. Remember those? 🤦🏻‍♀️
@maich

maich Wow😍 I didn't know that she wrote a book. I know her from Charmed and Mistress tv series. Thanks for sharing and reading❤ 9mo

Oh, this Archie/Batman mashup set in the 60s was a gas, man! 😁🤭🤪 Just as campy, zany and “punny” as the Adam West TV series. What fun to see all my favorite villains flee Gotham to wreak havoc on Riverdale! And Bookworm trying to steal a futuristic invention: The Electronic Book? 😂 Nice to learn that the Batman has a love of classic literature—namely Twain, Poe and Austen!

Loved this 2nd memoir by Beverly Cleary! It covers her college days studying to become a children‘s librarian, which led to her writing life and publishing her first book. Can you believe this amazing author, who revolutionized the children‘s book industry, will celebrate her 105th birthday in April?❤️Thanks to @webhau1 for a great rec! It‘s my #BookSpinBingo read and also my January nonfiction book for #ReadingWithMaja.

Eight is enough | Thomas Wardell Braden

Amusing memoir on the real-life family that launched the vintage 70s TV show. I had no idea the author lived in my city. What fun to learn more trivia about my neighborhood! Braden wanted his kids to be avid readers like him. When he put some classics on a high shelf and warned the kids not to read them, they did! Includes dated stories about hippies, the new morality & nonconformists, but still a fun read.

Ladder of Years | Anne Tyler
post image
Pickpick

I first discovered Anne Tyler in 1995 when my bookstore recommended this novel. Back then, I envied Delia‘s fearlessness. She just walked away from everything (boring job, ungrateful family) to start a new life. This reread made me appreciate Anne even more as she skewers the complexities of our relationships. They‘ll never be perfect, but they‘ll survive the storms with a little faith, compromise and much love.

Morgan's Passing | Anne Tyler
post image
Pickpick

I jumped right in this Anne Tyler novel(her 8th) from 1980 for #BookSpinBingo. Morgan, with a closet full of costumes, reinvents himself whenever the occasion arises to spice up his humdrum life.This NYT quote says it all:
“Miss Tyler, witty, civilized, curious, with her radar ears and quill pen dipped on one page in acid, and on the next in orange liqueur, is asking whether art is adequate in impersonations life insists on.”🙌🏻
@TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! Also - a very small Christmas parcel should be coming directly to you from the Etsy shop where I bought it!! ❤ 11mo
UwannaPublishme A surprise from you? Aww! What a treat! I‘ll let you know when it arrives. 😘😘😘 11mo
PurpleyPumpkin Every time you post about an Anne Tyler book, I'm reminded that I need to read more! I've only read two, Vinegar Girl and Back When We Were Grownups. Hard to believe, I know. I've gotta get on it! Maybe in 2021? 11mo
UwannaPublishme Anne is waiting for you! 😁 I‘m going to reread Back When We Were Grownups because I just found the film version on eBay. 11mo
