Possibly back after a whirlwind of a 2 months. There was almost no time for reading. I'm about to start my own little reading challenge:
The summer of Marvel. Here goes!
The Invincible Iron Man
Iron Man #1 (1968)

Couldn't find it to tag it.

I'm not sure where I saw this but I've decided to give it a go. A subscription box where you get 2 used books for 9.99 or 4 for 14.99 . You can also cancel at anytime. I did the 2 books to test it out. They're based here in NC, which I thought was cool.

If you'd like to try it with me here's a referral link. Hopefully I'll get something that I love and normally wouldn't have picked up. https://www.usedbooksmonthly.com/refer/Victo-VSQJMYSK

I've decided this year for Valentine's day to do blind date with a book for the ladies in my husband's office. I went to the used book store and picked these out. I've read them all but I'm useless when it comes to giving little hints. Please help, Littens, what little hints would you write for each?

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Quirky English girl, lands a great job to help out family. Falls for employer, but there's a catch. There's always a catch. And tears... or something like that lol. 8mo

I sent this out without a card, I remembered with one of those hit you out of no where moments. However, I did manage to remember to put my litsy handle at the return address area. If you receive this box it's from me! I had fun picking stuff out for you and can't wait for you to open!!!

Edit* when I mailed this they stamped "perishable" on it but it isn't. just chocolate and candy

OMG, I watched the first season of this and loved it. As soon as I finished I ran to the bookshelf and immediately pulled it out. This has been on the shelf for years and it's about time it gets love. I'm happy I watched it first, I usually am happier watching first because I don't sit around going "that's not right" or "that didn't happen in the book"

Ashley85 That‘s actually a good idea because I end up doing that all the time! 😂 9mo
Patchshank I have that book (haven't read it yet) I didn't know it was a series. 9mo
vicgreentoriafield @Ashley85 I like screen adaptions so much better now 9mo
vicgreentoriafield @Patchshank yup! It premiered in the UK first during 2018 and just came to the US through streaming. I did the Sundance Now free trial through Amazon Prime. You get 7 days free and can cancel before the last day to avoid paying the membership. After I downloaded Sundance Now I binged the show, ha. 9mo

I saved this to read and I'm SO glad I did. I love watching thrillers before reading them. One of my favorite things to do is gasp along to the TV with my husband and if I read the book before, it doesn't work out so well. I'm on the edge of my seat! Can't wait to read this now. Anyone else watching?

PrezBookster I‘ve been told to watch and read, so I hope to add to my TBR! 9mo
sammisho I haven't watched the show yet, waiting until ny husband can watch with me, but the book was so good! 9mo

Hamilton: The Revolution | Lin-Manuel Miranda
post image

If you would have told me a story about Alexander Hamilton would make me tear up, I probably would have laughed at you. When we saw Hamilton there were so many moving parts that made me tear up. Even now when I listen to the soundtrack I STILL get watery eyes. This book also did that to me. Hearing how passionate everyone was, is, and all of their stories of how Hamilton came to be, really choked me up.

Heading back home in less than a month! There are a couple of photographers whose work I LOVE who do HP and Disney Shoots, which is my dream. Literally, my dream job, just a bit modified from my current job. So if anyone on here in the Orlando area with season passes wants to hire a photographer, me, for couple or family pictures in HP World let me know and I'll send you my website!!

I enjoyed this and some of Maggie's near death experiences were horrible, but some I found myself thinking "Duh". I felt like she did a few things that were kind of dumb and landed her in specific situations.

I listened to the audio and loved the narrator, it was not Maggie. Her voice was so soothing.

I spent most of my day finishing this book. I kept holding out that the library might get the kindle version. I've been on a physical book buying ban, since I wasn't regularly reading, they never did but this went on kindle deals and I bought it immediately. Beautifully written, I absolutely loved the ending. I wish I could read Maude's books..

CathyJ One of my favorite reads of this year! 10mo
vicgreentoriafield @CathyJ I was pleasantly surprised. I went in with 0 expectations, just a friend telling me I HAVE to read it. I got hooked in the beginning, faded a tiny bit around the Mary Margaret parts, and got incredibly invested after that. It's one of my favorite reads of the year now too. 10mo

Finished one audiobook, HP2 Reread, and started another yesterday.

Maggie O'Farrell had me tearing up within the first story. I have about an hour left in this audiobook but I needed a break from all the heartbreak. Maggie has definitely poked my anxiety.

I bought this book as a gift & subconsciously bought myself 1 too. I didn't realize I bought 2 until they arrived. My brain knew what it was doing, "you love this man, 1 for you too!" Happy past Victoria is always looking out for future Victoria ?

If you read this cover to cover, like I did, it takes about 30 minutes. I look forward to going slower, reading 1 in the AM, and 1 @ bed. Starting when I'm no longer on vacation & need the help????

Listened to this a few weeks ago. Honestly, if it wasn't Bob's voice and I read it instead of listened to it, I wouldn't have liked it. I laughed a little, but mostly couldn't wait to be done.

I've been audioing HP instead of doing my Christmas reread. I just want to keep listening but I'm pacing myself. I really enjoy both versions of the audio, especially sped up.😉
