Seems I have a well honed (accidental and not at all intentional) aversion for Pulitzer Prize winning books 😱🧐 (I‘ve seen the Colour Purple as a stage show - it was phenomenal)

Opposite of Always | Justin Reynolds

Literally decided to read this because my iPad was within reach and I didn‘t want to have to get up 😏 but sometimes being lazy has its rewards... I‘m reading an entirely delightful book which I probably would have otherwise completely forgotten that I‘d requested from the library (and it is annoying when the loan expires before I get to them)

Interesting and enjoyable concept but felt like I was missing some crucial plot info... double checked that this was the first volume (it is). Will continue with the series, if the library continues to buy them.

The Red Wind | Isobelle Carmody
post image

Added to my signed Isobelle Carmody collection tonight!!! Brilliant evening listening to her speak about her writing life - I devoured her books when I was a teen - and hearing her speak (of writing Little Fur in particular) makes me want to revisit some of the ones I skipped over or don‘t have strong memories of (she mentioned two that were in the process of being turned into screenplays)

julesG I read the title of this as "The Red Wine" and was thinking what an interesting story this must be. ? 3d

A very enthusiastic review for this caught my attention and the library had it - and I‘m so glad! I don‘t generally gravitate towards historical/war fiction - and if there are more out there like this - then I‘ve really been missing out. Maybe the best book I read all year.

It‘s been such a hard week at the library, chronic staff shortages has lead to an increase in the manual handling load to the point where my entire right arm feels heavy, I‘ve been wearing a wrist support since Tuesday and I haven‘t had full bend (due to swelling) of my fingers for far too long... so obviously this is the week that I‘m rostered for weekend shifts 🙄😐🙄

Had a brunch conversation with a dear friend go an unexpected way when we started debating the merits of egg cups... They thought they were a waste of cupboard space (I keep mine on my bookshelf so not really an issue for me 😂). They did however remind me that some chocolate eggs are the same size as eggs from hens - and thus BEHOLD Noddy and Big Ears featuring chocolate eggs!

Got these for $5 at Clunes Booktown Festival - mostly because the covers looked interesting 😂

After a quick gander on Wikipedia, I learnt that this series was never as successful as Nancy Drew and are generally considered RATHER DATED - but still managed to be published throughout the 30s and then a second series published in the 70s (these ones are from the 70s)

Anyone read any? Thoughts?

Anastasia is only Disney retrospectively and so doesn‘t really count IMO as a ‘Disney movie‘

UPDATE : I FOUND THE LINK

j.rye I‘m concerned for myself. I love Anastasia. 😭 3w
LibrarianRyan I never thought Anastasia was Disney, but I knew it was “disney-ized“ with happy endings. Knowing the real history of Anastasia, I just could never bring myself to watch it in its entirety.

3w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @j.rye, I‘m not a fan of the movie (for me it took too many liberties with history. Like what was up with Rasputin?) but in the context of the quiz there was a snippet of song lyric and then 4 movie choice options.... so perhaps only need to re-evaluate if you got this question wrong? (edited) 3w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @LibrarianRyan, a lot of people probably do though... I watched it all when it came out and wasn‘t a fan then (I had an inkling but not a full understanding of what went down then and I knew it wasn‘t right) 3w

Ahhh, I couldn‘t resist another Famous Five outing (even one not written by Enid Blyton but obviously was given the publishers blessing as there looks to be heaps in this series) Quite a high stakes adventure with a near drowning, cave exploration, cracking a case that left the police baffled and getting kidnapped 😱 One improvement was that George didn‘t get sidelined when things got dangerous/interesting...

Reread. This was pretty good but one storyline (the blood curse) was better than the other (skin walker / Cormac being on trial for murder)... and as this was a reread I knew that there would be a sudden change in the direction of love interests (it‘s possibly the thing I remember most about this book 😂 cause I was (in 2009) pretty unhappy about it - in an I don‘t think I continued the series kind of way) didn‘t bother me as much this time.

Kitty Goes to Washington | Carrie Vaughn
post image
Pickpick

Reread. Ahhh, we turn the grittyness up on this one. Kitty ends up on the stand before the Senate to talk about werewolves and vampires. Things obviously go horribly wrong and our girl goes through a huge trauma. Probably the standout line for me is when she compares what happens (I‘ll put it in the comments) to rape to which her friend and lawyers reply is “what would you know about that” - like dude. Just no.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Kitty is a werewolf, in a world where the fact that werewolves and other such creatures exist has just become public knowledge. In this book, a scientist, a fame hungry journalist and a religious zealot who happens to be a senator conspire to kidnap Kitty on the night of the full moon and to broadcast her change. Against her will. Inside a silver cage. 4w

Reread. I like how much Kitty grows and matures over the course of the novel but also her past experiences and certain situations that she rationalises as normal are quite horrifying (and I think perhaps resonated with me as awful more than when I first read this circa 2009)

Easter Monday a couple of years back, is when I sliced my finger open when I was cutting up sweet potato for a new soup recipe. The soup didn‘t turn out and my shock at the blood loss (and then a stubborn sense of ‘she‘ll be right‘) meant that I didn‘t seek immediate medical attention. Which I should have - as I‘d partially severed the tendon and chipped the bone. Good times! To celebrate this Easter long weekend, I stayed out of the kitchen!

Book equivalent of those big ensemble movies like Valentine‘s Day or Love, Actually - which are goofy, annoying yet endearing. The cast of characters is a little bit too big, you don‘t quite get to spend enough time with any of them - & yet by the end, seemingly unconnected characters are connected (sometimes very tenuously through Diana & Charles wedding china but still!) and you are probably grinning, & thinking the world isn‘t quite so gloomy
