Stormy Petrel | Mary Stewart

I'm about halfway through and I just love Mary Stewart's books. They're such calm and comforting books with a little romance, a little mystery and great settings. I would happily hang out in this book.

Another year gone and another stack of books to read! 😁 This is my #bookflood haul from my sister @LitDrivenGirl and once again she went above and beyond! We're very competitive with our gift giving. 😂 She got me so many that I've been wanting forever but I love when she gets me books I've never heard of! Happy reading and New Year!

It's that time of year again, time to put away my Halloween decorations. ☹️ But I'm comforted by finding this lovely poem while cleaning, illustrated by my favorite illustrator Trina Schart Hyman. 😊 It's from the October 1986 issue of the Cricket magazine.

I am loving this book! I will definitely be reading more in the series, especially the Ray Bradbury edition. It's a quick and fascinating read, you get to know Mr. Rogers from his perspective. I'm reading while working at my bookstores sidewalk sale! 😁

Book mail is the best kind of mail! ? "The Rock From the Sky" is an early review book from @LibraryThing thank you so much! It looks so good! I saw the preview for the "Sweet Tooth" tv show and thought it looked good, so why not buy it? ? Have you read it? Are you looking forward to the tv show?

My family's Christmas was a little wonky last year, and we weren't able to celebrate together. So I've been getting presents periodically and I'm not mad about it. 😎 These are from my Mom and they look so good!!!

My sister and I have been celebrating our own version of #jolabokaflod for three years now. We joke about who will "win" book flood by giving the most amount of books, and my sister clearly won. ? She got me way too much and I have no idea where they're all going! So instead of cleaning and organizing maybe I should just pick one and read. ? Which book should I read first???
#bookhaul #christmasbookhaul

Velvetfur That's an amazing amount of books! I love the sound of the tagged one too 😁 12mo
vivastory So many great books! I rec. both Saint Mazie & People's History of the Vampire Uprising. Also enjoyed Encyclopedia of Early Earth. 12mo
biblio_ginger @Velvetfur I am definitely leaning towards that one! 😁 @vivastory I've been wanting to read Saint Mazie forever! I'm so conflicted! 😂 12mo

The Shining | Stephen King

Well, here we go! My husband has been wanting me to read this for years. We watch the movie every Halloween, and everytime we watch it he wants to tell me spoilers from the book. ? So I'm reading it now! I'm really curious about "Doctor Sleep". Should I read that next?

AmyG The Shining is SOOOOO good. Better than the movie. (edited) 1y
biblio_ginger @AmyG I love the movie so I'm betting I'll love the book! 😁 1y

Brewster's Millions | George Barr McCutcheon

I'm shifting books at the shop today and rediscovered this author! I've always enjoyed watching the Richard Pryor movie, Brewster's Millions and when I found out it was a book first I thought, even better! Are you a fan? Have you seen the movie? I think there was a black and white version made in the 40's as well.

I can't tag the book I'm posting about so I picked one written by the same author. I scored this awesome book through Kickstarter and I can't wait to read it!

biblio_ginger @Clwojick I'm not sure, I can't find info for it online. The author posted on his Instagram ( @thekylestarks ) that he'd post some on his website to sell when he got them. 2y

Two of the books in my stack (the one I tagged and The Winter Witch) I've already started but I may take a break from. I tried to include women authors because it's still March, and at least one E-book so I can just grab my phone in the morning and start reading! 😎 Thank you @24in48 for having the readathon!!!!!

A Long Fatal Love Chase | Louisa May Alcott
post image

Hour 18 of the #24in48readathon and I wish I'd waited to post my previous post! 😅 It would've been perfect for this challenge. The book I picked doesn't count for the #hour18challenge but here's why I chose it. I've ashamedly been very judgy of romance novels in the past. I'd like to think I'm a better reader than I was. I picked up the paperback in my picture thinking it was a romance novel and used to hide and read it. See Comments⬇️

biblio_ginger I even got made fun of for reading it because some dummy was book cover shaming me. ? I should say I was maybe 13 when I first read it. Anyway I LOVED this book and even when I found a pretty hardback I had to keep the original"scandalous" paperback. #endbookshaming 3y
Sunraven #endbookshaming should absolutely be a thing. Maybe we should do a “shamed/shameful-seeming books” challenge. 😆 3y
biblio_ginger @Sunraven absolutely! That would be awesome! I feel bad for not being more romance friendly in the past. 😔 3y
