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.
St. James always tells a good story.
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.
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**
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
My fingers have been flying! I had an order for 50 of these little animals in my Etsy shop so I have been doing lots if #audiocrocheting recently. But they are done and shipping out today!
