Do you think of another book as you are reading one?
Introducing this and that. I always think of other books while I am reading. A form of literary cheating, I guess.
Don't tell my books.
While reading Miriam Toews' new book, "Women Talking", I was reminded time and again of Natalie Angier's book, "Woman", which helped me, at a young age age (when it was first published...) understand that my body is underestimated, the way the women in Toews' book are.

Tudor. ———————————— What was one book you read that ended up being a major let down? 📚 📚 Hello friends! As I'm sure you can tell by my QOTD, this review is not going to be 5 stars. In fact, I'm struggling to award it even 3 stars. I had such high hopes for this one. When I started reading 'The Chalk Man' by C.J Tudor, I liked it. I even recommended it to a few friends. It was giving me major 'It' by Stephen King vibes and I love a good thriller so what could go wrong? 🙄 Well for one, around mid way I had a hard time picking the book back up once I set it down because it was moving very slowly. It's a miracle I didn't DNF it. Two, the main character got on my nerves quote often. Three, I guessed the ending. I do this sometimes which isn't always a bad thing if the ending is good. Which brings me to four: the ending was terrible and anticlimactic. In the end this novel left me down right disappointed. Have you read this book? What did you think of it? 📚 📚 On a brighter note, I started 'The Bronze Horseman' by Paullina Simons. I'm halfway and OMGGGGGGGGGGG WHERE HAS THIS BOOK BEEN ALL MY LIFE? 😍😍😍 I literally cannot set it down! 📚 📚 📚 📚 My kitties, Thor and Loki say hi! 😻 📚 📚 📚 📚
This author is one of my all time favourite mystery writers. The first book I read was in Grade 7. I don't think it was age appropriate😂 But I was hooked. Soo tell me about the authors obsessed over by you guys... . .
So viele Orte, die ganz eigene Geschichten zu erzählen haben ... heute durfte ich eine der - mutmaßlich - schönsten kennenlernen. (Zur Info: Ich habe für die Bücherdorf-Reise nun ein Story-Highlight angelegt, das fortwährend befüllt wird / Story zu dem abgebildeten Bücherort folgt gleich)

Anoshe to the wonderful Shades of Magic series! I finished A Conjuring of Light yesterday & imm still not over it. A 5 💫 series with tones of intriguing characters, Londons, magic, and more. I loved the diversity of character expression & identity! I read both the last two books through a combination of the hardcover copies I own and the audiobook on the libby app. A Conjuring of Light counted towards spookathon as a book with a spooky word in the title AND a book not set in the current time period. Have you read the series? Let me know what you think!
QOTD: Do you still read from the genre you loved as a child or beginner reader? Aside from the one series I can't shut up about, some childhood favourites include The Chronicles of Narnia, His Dark Materials and Cornelia Funke's fantasy books. You all know that to this day I swear by fantasy. There are so many wonderful stories that promise to sweep me off this planet that I'm yet to discover, so I don't think I'll ever grow tired of this genre. 😍
Here is a beautiful red stack to brighten up a gloomy day. Do you spot any favourites?
