As I reread HP for a twenty-ishth time (couldn‘t help myself), I just noticed something. Not sure if this has been discussed anywhere before but it seems weird to me that Dementors affected Harry to the degree he lost consciousness. Upon rereading, I realized that, of course, Harry had another (part of a) soul inside him at that time. And that soul was damaged beyond repair. That must be the true answer! 💡😎

Sorry Mr.Dresden, I think this one kinda drops a little. And I do hate how female characters are portrayed.

But, but, but I‘m gonna continue on the next book. I still have high hopes for you. 😉

Saw this from @RestlessFickleBookHoarder ‘s post and I already signed up. 😁 I think I‘ll tackle down the Dresden Files series as many as possible. I‘m so glad it‘ll be 8 am to 8 am in my timezone (finally morning readathon)!

Anyone joining? 🙋🏽‍♀️

This book is a BLAST. Audiobook is amazing too.
I adore Harry Dresden. Bus he does have flaws. I‘ll leave Murphy description of him, which I completely agree, right here:

“Dramatic death scene. Noble sacrifice, right? Tragically misunderstood? Hah! I understand you, buddy. You‘re such a pompous, arrogant, pretentious, chauvinistic, hopelessly old-fashioned, stupidly pigheaded . . .” 🤣

KathyWheeler I loved when she said that to Harry! It was so perfect. 😄 My husband and I just finished listening to this book and are on the next one now. James Marsters has become Harry Dresden to me; if they ever do another Dresden Files show, I want him to play Harry even though he‘s too old for him. 3mo
pppooraikul @KathyWheeler Couldn‘t agree more! I‘d love to see that too. His narration is so Dresden. 🤣🤣 3mo

Have I mentioned that I‘m a fan of Sherlock Holmes since forever? Complete works & translated box set here and I also have an audiobook by Stephen Fry plus two or three comic books (as a gift from my father). I saw some Littens did a #sherlocked read a few years back. I think I‘ll be doing mine this year. 🤓🕵🏻‍♂️💪🏼

Sarah83 Looks great. I am also a great fan. 😍🤩 3mo
Lady_Tigana_20 My mom is a huge fan, but I‘m slightly embarrassed to admit I‘ve only read THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. ONE DAY I‘ll remedy that. I am, however, reading a series by Sherry Thomas in which Sherlock is actually a woman: A STUDY IN SCARLET WOMEN. 3mo
pppooraikul @Sarah83 Thanks! 😁🙌🏼 Interested in rereading? 😉 3mo

Sarah83 @pppooraikul for sure. But I have several buddyreads coming up. Would September suit you? Or is this too late for you? 3mo
pppooraikul @Sarah83 I guess that‘ll be too late for me bc I already started. So sorry. 😢 However, I‘m not gonna rush and I‘ll keep updating my progress. If you catch up please tell me and we could read some together! 😁😁 3mo
Sarah83 @pppooraikul do you read the short stories or the books first? 😍🤩 3mo

When I read the word thaumaturgy, I instantly thought of The Name of the Wind. Later on, I saw Mr.Rothfuss‘ review on goodreads an completely agreed with him. THIS BOOK IS A BLAST. Plus, if he says next audiobooks are even better, then they really are and I‘d better go get the second one stat.

PS. Harry Dresden can be really annoying with his “old-fashioned gentleman” thingy. I hope to see some development as many reviews suggested, though.

Heard raving reviews on this audiobook so I decided to give it a try. A bit skeptical though, since I was not impressed with the Demon Accords series which has a very similar ring to this one. But a Wizard detective? Why not?

As you all might have guessed from my previous rants, I LOVE this final installation of Wicked Years series. It‘s better than the previous 3 books combined in all aspects. Plot, pacing, punchlines, character development, etc. And far more passionate.

Its prequels are all melancholy despite being thought-provoking. But this one gave me too many emotional blows. I apologize for having doubts about you, dear book. Right now I‘m very so in love with you. (80% read) ❤️📚❤️

This scene reminds me of the parents of a child with some kind of developmental disease. Believe me, I‘ve seen a fair number of such cases. The feels. 😢

Maguire‘s writing can be bleak, despairing and surprisingly emotional somehow.

I know I said this too many times but hey, I‘m back! 😊👋🏼📚

This focuses mainly on Cowardly Lion, the infamous collaborationist. He sought out Mother Yackle to get some information on Elphaba‘s past and ended up, quite involuntarily, recounting his own.

Like previous books, the pace picked up at the latter 1/3. The end served storyline well & was satisfying enough. However, I was barely engaged & had only a little sympathy for Brrr. 🤷🏽‍♀️

It‘s either a pick or a pan for this one. No compromises. Just like Elphaba herself.

It‘s completely different from the broadway show but also very similar. Full of drugs, sex, politics, philosophy magic and religion, it invokes conflictual questions with no provided answer. The ending is far from satisfying. The writing style is hard to get into and I don‘t think I understand half of it. Still, it got a pick from me. Weird.

Suzze I tried. I really tried. Nope. 13mo
pppooraikul @Suzze Don‘t force yourself! If it doesn‘t work, dump it. Tbh, I didn‘t expect to finish it this time. (My first attempt was six years ago. 😂) I only picked it up again when I was about to put it into my DNFs. Oh, irony. 13mo

Zelma @pppooraikul I haven‘t but I am really weird about series. I rarely read more than the first book in a series or trilogy. Usually it is enough and I don‘t need to continue the story or live in the world more. It‘s an odd reading habit, I know. 12mo
pppooraikul @Zelma It‘s weird indeed! I‘m leaning more towards conquering every book in a series. But I guess we all have preferences. 😉 12mo

Love Stephen Fry‘s work on the Sherlock Holmes definitive collection audiobooks. And many thanks to @SerialReader for a handy, easily accessible way to read a classic. I‘m on 3rd story right now and I have to agree with Fry‘s foreword; The opening line of this one was the most remarkable and later became one of signature lines of Holmes collection.

“To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman.”

A story of Alyce, a young witch whose mother had been burnt alive by the Witchfinders. She soon found herself trapped in the war between Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary of Scott. Fast-paced and gripping, although there‘re small holes in the plot but they could be overlooked. I really liked Alyce especially in her opening scene.

After reading 4th volumes of the Earthsea series, I decided I like Ursula Le Guin‘s voice in female protagonists way better. Or maybe it‘s just because I like Tenar so much. This book spoke strongly on feminism and totally worth reading. 👍🏼

DivaDiane I agree! She continued the series mostly because she wanted to say something different about women and how they live in the Earthsea world. The last 2 Books in the series really make a wonderful ending for the series. 2y

But I knew by heart it was from one of my friends who I‘m currently having a quarrel with and this is definitely his way of making-up. How can I still hold grudges after this? I mean, not all your friends buy books as an apology, right?

I like this one much better than A Wizard of Earthsea. To me, Tenar seemed more vivid and more relatable than Ged had been in the first book. Her struggle was even darker, fighting with her own beliefs and making choices. I‘d love to read more of her in later books.

This is my tribute read to Ursula Le Guin. May her blessed soul rest in peace. 💚

Searching through my pile, I‘ve stopped at this one. If Douglas Adams is not intriguing and hilarious, I don‘t know who is. (Well, Sir Terry Pratchett was.) #bestfirstline #2ndchallenge #hour12 #24in48 #readathon

TheLondonBookworm And apparently they were very close friends- which I can totally picture, my god I would have loved to go for dinner with that pair! 2y
pppooraikul @TheLondonBookworm It would be the most memorable dinner ever, and passed down as a family legend! 2y

[I need to reuse the photo since I‘m not home at the moment.]

The Borrowers is not the oldest book in my house but it is held very close to my heart. It‘s one of the very first books I was allowed to choose from the bookstore (a translated version). I remember my young self reading and rereading it a hundredth times over. It‘s well-loved. ❤️

While most of us readathoners just started #24in48, I may excuse myself and check in at 12th hour. I‘ve only read for an hour, though. 😂 So I take this to brunch and hope I will proceed further in this race. ;)

pppooraikul @Varshitha Are you starting early too? 2y
pppooraikul @Reviewsbylola Just got it via online store! My sister was so mad when she saw this because she had just bought another print of The Handmaid‘s Tale only one day before this one arrived. We didn‘t tell each other because we never thought we‘d buy it simultaneously. 😂 2y
Varshitha I'm gonna start with the official time, not a late night person😁.. It will be 10:30 am here, so perfect for me and work starts late on monday as well . 2y

The Bluest Eye | Toni Morrison
Pickpick

I found myself holding breath, my heart racing, my gut wrenching while reading it. Several times I wanted to stop but couldn't. I was drowning in Morrison's poetic prose. How could she write such a tragedy so very beautifully?

My review can't ever do the book justice. However, I would NOT recommend it to everyone. (Trust me, I picked this book from my TBR pile by the Random app. And I don't think I'll do that again, not for a little while.)

I‘m reading HP along with Pottermore‘s Wizarding World Book Club and this week we‘re doing chapter 25-29 in the theme Wizarding Careers.

But what I have to say here has nothing to do with the theme. Imagining how Dumbledore must feel at the moment, intentionally avoiding Harry and knowing full well that it upset the boy. Even so, Harry still had so much faith in him, putting his name as a banner. Dumbledore must be very proud and so touched. 💚
