I had no idea BBC had done a new adaptation of my favorite Wilke Collins novel. Im coming down with a lovely bug my son shared with me and this will be perfect to be sick with.

Short novella which is also included in his short story collection Bazaar of Bad Dreams. Good solid King story. Also included a short story called Morality which reminded me a lot of that old movie Indecent Proposal.

So disappointing. I've been a big fan of this author's middle grade books. This would have been a good story if not for all the "feminist" man- bashing meant to influence teens. Blech. Guess what? men aren't bad. Men aren't less. We shouldn't teach our daughters to think that.

rretzler I so absolutely agree with you! I don‘t like it when authors try to over-generalize or stereotype, especially in middle-grade or YA books 1w

This is a short novella prequel to Warm Bodies which I read a few years ago and was pleasantly surprised to enjoy. This follows the main characters from that and gives a little bit of backstory to them.

This wasn't a bad book. But it wasn't great. It was very flat for lack of a better word. Just didn't work for me.

There is a formula to Susanna Kearsley's books, but it's a formula I love. This was not my favorite of hers, but it's the kind of book that is always a satisfying read.

The Eyes of the Dragon | Stephen King

Ok. Do not go into this book expecting the usual Stephen King awesomeness. It's still awesome, just not the usual King fare. Firstly, he wrote this book for his daughter when she was young, so in a sense I suppose you could categorize it as middle grade. And it is toned down A LOT for him. Secondly, it's a fun rip-roaring fantasy by one of our time's best storytellers. **Finished in comments**

toofondofbooks Thirdly, the audiobook is narrated by Bronson Pinchot who does a flipping amazing performance, especially as the dark wizard Flagg (yes THAT Flagg) I loved it. 3w

I absolutely loved this series on Netflix and need some good historical fiction recs about Louis XIV and Versailles. I've read all of Karleen Koens books and can find lots about Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette but not as much about the infamous Sun King.

I really enjoyed The Wildwood Series by Colin Meloy and when I saw the audiobook for his latest was narrated by Bronson Pinchot I was on this like white on rice. It didn't disappoint. Clever funny writing and another fantastic performance by Pinchot. Great middle grade read. If you've never listened to Pinchot look for books he's done. He does an excellent job

rretzler I have a pattern for all 13 doctors from Doctor Who and I‘ve been trying to decide if I want to tackle them. They seem similar in size. That‘s certainly less time than the blanket I‘m currently knitting and a small project would give me a sense of accomplishment! 😁 1mo

Enjoyed this story, the audiobook narrator did a terrible Southern accent though that grated on my nerves.

ShyBookOwl Oh no! Narrators can make or break an audiobook for me. This is my favourite book though. 1mo

I first read this book when I was 15 and my high school librarian let me borrow books from her private bookshelf. She gave it to me and said I would love it and I did. 30 years later I love it just as much.

Mary Downing Hahn is a great intro into Gothic literature for lower middle grade. My daughter and I always enjoy her spooky little books.
