No one ever does live happily ever after, but we leave that for the children to find out for themselves, don't we?

Ok so not quite Thanksgiving any more but seeing as that means diddly squat here I guess it's not too late to do a #thankful prompt for #grimdragon. I am truly thankful right now that it's Friday night. I am tired. It's been a busy but productive week, and now I can just relax for a bit. Wolves is proving to be a wonderful reread so far. Only hundreds of pages to go...

I can already feel myself getting fed up with boys and I haven't had anything to do with them yet.

Almost caught up with #grimdragon now. This prompt is #theangstisreal, and I thought we'd go all teen anxiety on this!

I recently reread this after many years and was pleasantly surprised how funny I found it still. It irks me that this is marketed at female readers where as say Adrian Mole is for everyone? This is perfectly suitable to everyone as far as I'm concerned. Anyway, this is an enjoyable little read which is written in the form of a teenage girls diary. We learn all about Georgia from her own perspective and this personal dialogue is what makes it so good. As with Adrian Mole, some of the thoughts, feelings and ideas are exceptionally cringe worthy, but they feel genuine. It's not a case of being relatable to your current self, more a horrific reminder of what teens can be like.

It's not a masterpiece, and you shouldn't go in expecting a changing experience, but if you want a quick little distraction read you could do a lot worse.

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,
Teach us something please,
Whether we be old and bald
Or young with scabby knees,
Our heads could do with filling
With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us things worth knowing,
Bring back what we've forgot,
Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
And learn until our brains all rot.'
✨
Continuing the #bookstaspam with the third and final #grimdragon catch up of the day - #thatcoverthough.

I recently treated myself to the current hardback HP adult set and I just love it. I have to share the back cover for book four as it's just such an utter beaut with a great quote.

NO, THAT WAS THE BIT JUST NOW.

'Which bit?'

THE BIT, said Death, BETWEEN YOUR BEING BORN AND YOUR DYING.

So Thursday is kind of like Monday, in that it's time for another late #grimdragon catch-up up with #macromonday. Of course it had to be more #discworld and the beautiful spines of the Collectors Library. 😍

'He could be ejected by force,' said Inigo.
'Now there's an experiment I wouldn't want to miss,' said Vimes.
Detritus made a rumbling noise. 'I don't mind goin' back if-'
'Shut up, sergeant. You're a free troll. That's an order.'

More #grimdragon catching up with #thisisfine. Whilst maybe not quite on meme, I love this book. Keeping relatively spoiler free, it focuses on Sam Vimes as a diplomat. A very blunt diplomat who, more than anything, blindly believes/hopes/ensures that blind conviction and common sense will overcome all obstacles, even the rather deadly ones.

Just one more #grimdragon tonight - #analltimefavourite. That's AN ALL TIME FAVOURITE to anyone as immature as apparently I am.

I finished a slow reread of this earlier in the week and forgot quite how much I loved it. It's relatively simplistic compared to later books but the flip side is that there's no hanging about. The plot just charges through and before you know it the books over and you're desperate for more. Thankfully book two was out when I read this so I did have one more book before the horrible waiting began.
πŸ“š
I had intended to do this read with the illustrated edition but instead I went for my original, rather battered paperback for some familiar comfort. The later editions with Dumbledore on the back always feel wrong to me. The generic wizard with his pipe should've been kept in place! Maybe Rowling will write us a short story about him one day so he finally gets a name.

Frodo, don't wear the ring,
I know it's very tempting.
Yes, you will appear to disappear,
But the dark riders, they'll know you're there.
Yes, Lord Sauron has many spies,
Many spies have many eyes...

So I guess they'll be some #bookstaspam as I have a few days #grimdragon to catch up on. First up we've got #sophmoreslump

I actually slightly hate this phrase, just because it's so American. US school years used to confuse me and the wider use of them just made me feel like everyone else was expected to just know US culture. It might be used by more countries, and I'm sure there's plenty of things I use that can be irksome, but it gibbing well gubbles my plumpkins when tundermufflins spew their nippity lip lingo.
πŸ“š
Oh right, the book! I've mentioned this one before. It's been years since I read this (although I've audio'd a few times) and, whilst it's not awful, there's so much walking... If, upon rereading it turns out I was just reading the same chapter over and over again then I'll rethink my stance, but it seemed to go on forever!

Today's #grimdragon prompt is a quote from Bart Simpson on, I believe, the teachers talent show. Instead of trying to find something shit, I thought I'd go with my only Simpsons book - my childhood copy of Bart Simpsons Guide to Life!
πŸ“š
This is one of those books I read as a child before I really got into books. I always enjoyed reading magazines / comics (Beano and Simpsons were my favorites) but I didn't have the same thirst for reading back then.
πŸ“š
More importantly - why is the Simpsons still going? For the first ~10 seasons it was really funny, but I've tried the newer ones a few times and the humour is just dramatically different. I just don't find myself laughing very often at all. Is it just me?!

Today's #grimdragon is #multiplepovs and I wanted to share Carry On because I haven't promoted it enough.

Fangirl revolves around a character who writes fanfic for a made-up series based on Harry Potter. This book is then the fanfic that character created (so fiction based on fiction based on fiction?). It sounded idiotic, but I enjoyed both books, especially this one. Effectively, it's Harry Potter / Draco Malfoy fanfic, but it's actually well written, entertaining and funny. The book jumps between perspectives of the main characters chapter-to-chapter, and this really helps the humour with great internal insights. I had low expectations going in but found myself absorbed by the plot and laughing out loud at some of these great little pokes at the HP books.
πŸ“š
Arguably I think you should read Fangirl first, but I do think this could stand alone as a semi parody book.

Walking home I got really annoyed realising I'd left my #currentlyreading at work. Then I remembered I do have an extra copy or two lying around at home...

Today's #grimdragon prompt is #everybodyneedssomebody and it immediately made me think of Winnie the Pooh. Throughout the stories we repeatedly see the theme that friends help. Yes yes, sometimes they might mess things up a bit and do things wrong, but whether you need moral support tracking woozles, assistance locating your tail, or somewhere to live after your house gets blown down, true friends will be there.

Following that up with an #accidentalbookhaul πŸ™ˆ

I had a doctor's appointment this evening, and so found myself in town at five o'clock. I was walking past Waterstones and thought I'd just pop in for a quick look...
πŸ“š
Seeing as I'm supposed to be on a book buying ban for the month, this hasn't been the most successful day, but it could've been a lot worse?!
