  1. Love that Slaughterhouse Five quote tee! I have a few of those Penguin Hardcovers I got as a gifts, and a few more I want to own. They’re so pretty! ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy reading! My TTT

      Same here. I don’t necessarily want to own the whole collection, but there are at least ten or fifteen more that I’ve been coveting since the design came out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I want to read Princeless too! And that cover of Emma is beautiful.
    I saw that Women in Science book in B&N and it looks great. Love the illustrations in it.

      Princeless is fantastic but the one I put here in particular, Raven’s spinoff series, is even better. I love it so much. And that copy of Emma is also in Frenchโ€”maybe that’s why it’s so beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚ (No, I don’t read French, but (1) I would like to learn and (2) I’d want to own the book even if I don’t.)

        Yea, that Raven one is what I have on my TBR though I think I should start with the original since I’ve never read any of the Princeless comics before.
        Oh in French! No wonder it’s so pretty.

        It’s written so that you don’t have to read Princeless first, but I would, just because I like them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I just started listening to H Is For Hawk on audiobook and I have to say based on the rave reviews I’ve heard of it, it was nothing like what I expected. It’s unbearably slow and not really about hawks or falconers at all but a sort of rambling biography of T.H. White. I wouldn’t recommend it and in fact abandoned it a quarter of the way in, but you may have to find out for yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh, that’s too bad. I actually loved it, but I totally see how the T.H. White stuff was off-putting for some people. I also don’t think I would have enjoyed it on audio; some books just don’t translate well to that medium. But it was one of my favorite books of last year, when I read it.

    Almost all of these books are ones I’ve already read, and that’s why I want to own themโ€”I don’t often risk buying books unless I know I will like them.

      She’s a favorite of mine, too. Lumberjanes is a lot of fun but Nimona is one of my absolute favorites.
