I had to take a break from Tolkien and #LOTRchapteraday as well as some other books I had been reading. “You Should See Me in a Crown” has kept me engaged this morning at work. I haven‘t enjoyed a book set in a high school in a long time. #audiobook

This story was a fun, but formulaic gothic horror novel. But the real star is Paapa Essiedu and the creative team that managed to put together the Audible audiobook of this novel!!!! #audiobook

I made it 100 pages into this book. I didn‘t realize this was romance fantasy. I didn‘t care for the world and it‘s “rules.” I also found the author‘s writing to be long-winded while not saying much. I know a lot of people really like this and that is great, but I have forced myself to read several TikTok books that I hated. I am not going to do it for this. Does anyone have any dragon-focused fantasy novels they can suggest?

RamsFan1963 @wisherwishinguponastar I wish I had bailed on it, I didn't care for it at all. It's been awhile, but I remember really enjoying The Year of Rogue Dragons trilogy ( The Rage, The Rite, and The Ruin) by Richard Lee Byers. It's part of the Forgotten Realms series of books. 10mo

This is a charming collection of short stories and poems by Tolkien. I really enjoy imagining young hobbits listening to “The Adventures of Tom Bombadil.” Sam‘s poem about a Troll arguing over a pile of bones makes me smile (it is the same thing he recites to Frodo, Merry, and Pippin under Bilbo‘s trolls in Fellowship). “On Fairy-Stories” was a more complex read and reminded me of the parts of Tolkien with which I disagree. #tolkien

I had just plowed through “The Hobbit,” but I had no money for a book, so I had to start negotiating. My mother and I agreed that I would read a book of her choosing and then I would get my mass market paperback with an alarmed Elijah Wood on the cover. I just had to read… “Pride and Prejudice.”

I was reminiscing after playing catch-up for #lotrchapteraday #bookjournal

JazzFeathers Well, you don't seem to have come out too bad from the bergaing. Also, lovely picture 🤩 10mo
wisherwishinguponastar @JazzFeathers Thank you! I was working on Litsy Love letters and everything just fell in to place. I actually didn‘t enjoy Pride and Prejudice the first time around. It wasn‘t until I was older that I liked it, but I will always remember that experience. 10mo

So, I do love Tolkien and his description of nature and humanity, but sometimes I get annoyed at his lack of appreciate for industry. I am not saying Sauron was right (in fact he alpha-broed too close to the fiery chasm from whence his ring of power came). But I do think there needs to be a happy medium. How else would I get to post on this lovely app if not for industry? #hobbitweek

I have never been an outdoorsy person, but anytime I pick up one of Tolkien‘s books I want to go for a walk or sit outside. Everything is picturesque, but not just beautiful. It can be terrible and grotesque when the story needs it.
I think Ents and Entwives create a lovely bridge between the moving characters and the shifting environment. Even if I tend to be a bit hasty during the Ent focused chapters. #hobbitweek

Hearing Saruman tell me about the Second Age antics of men is the best way to enjoy this story. If you have audible, Christopher Lee narrated the audiobook available. Tolkien created an epic tragedy for his world that sits nicely beside the epic romance (looking at you Beren and Lúthien). #tolkien #audiobook #bookjournal

I chose “A Darker Shade of Magic” on a whim from the Audible Plus library. I am a little over 4 hours in when I think to check if the other parts of the series are also in Audible Plus. Nope. Time to head to the library because this will be finished today or tomorrow.
I knew I enjoyed V.E. Schwab, so this wasn‘t a risky choice. The Magic system is interesting and I like the parallel Londons. #audiobooks

Book 1 Chapter 2 “The Shadow of the Past”
#LotRChapteraDay #bookjournal

I have been listening to some Tolkien-focused podcasts and is it just me or is the worst fate for anything in Middle-earth to “fade.” Elves that don‘t return to Valinor: fade. Bilbo and Gollum spending too much quality time with the ring: fade.

Roary47 Today a coworker slightly mentioned Lord of the Rings and I went into total nerd mode. He was impressed. Lol 🙈😅 10mo

JazzFeathers @wisherwishinguponastar @Roary47 😂 Fortunately, almost everyone l know knows I'm a Tolkien fan. I do try not to get away with it when anybody mention something vaginally connected with Tolkien 😅 But then, it's good to be a nerd, don't you think? 10mo

JazzFeathers @wisherwishinguponastar I think you are right. Though I think fadind is more sad than bad in Tolkien's stories. Something that is ultimately not avoidable. And yet, closely connected with changing, which is not bad, though it's certainly hard. 10mo
wisherwishinguponastar @JazzFeathers yeah. Rereading Boromir‘s death allows you to see how our characters deal with sorrow. You sing a song and tell a tale of your fallen comrade so he may live on. 10mo

This may not be the Tolkien book for everyone. I struggled to get through a few chapters, but some of the less detailed stories in “The Silmarillion” get their time to shine. Plus there is more information on Galadriel and Gandalf if that is of interest to you. It also gives some behind the scenes pieces to “The Hobbit” that I really enjoyed. #bookjournal #tolkien

I have been struggling with my new job, but I have been using audiobooks as an aide to get through the day.

I think I agree with @Patchshank and @Maggie4483 on this one. It was an engrossing book and you really become attached to the Ciaglia‘s in their journey, but so much of the book relies on the shock value of the serial killers‘ letters that I don‘t know if I could recommend this to someone without copious trigger warnings. It kind of felt like Pete Earley would have just used the letters and dumped everything else if Tony let him. #lmpbc #truecrime

I have been reading this for two months and while I enjoyed the first two in this series, l am going to tap out. I like the relationships developed in the prior novels, but everything in this one is very big and very anticlimactic. I read a summary and I guess this isn‘t my thing even though I really wanted it to be. #bookjournal (How do you guys deal with DNF shame? Because I am feeling it right now.)

Bookgoil I don‘t often dnf but I wish I did now on the last two in that series that came out. I didn‘t mind that one it gets exciting at the end like all Maas books but I‘ve fully given up on the author as each book I read gets worse to me so I think it‘s time to move on. I sometimes retry a dnf later if I think it‘s a mood thing. One I felt the exact same way and another I loved so much just depends. 2y
wisherwishinguponastar @Bookgoil I am just glad to know that I am not the only person. I think Maas does relationships really well, but that all got put to the side for the gigantic conflict. That part of her story was just kind of dry and a little wishy washy. 2y
Bookgoil @booksellerofyourdiscontent I think her writing is getting worse over time not better 🤣 and she‘s trying to add a lot more “smut” in these later books now. (edited) 2y
