Summer Non-Reading Wrap Up Reviews
With cinnamon, please
I'm glad you enjoyed the Cursed Child play, and I bet it is amazing, but I really didn't like the book :( Incredibles 2 is so good! ^^ omg I also love Studio Ghibli! I need to watch Up On Poppy Hill
Sounds like you had a great summer Katie and I can't believe Travis are still going, are they still making music or just playing the old hits?
So interesting to hear your thoughts on The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. I (shamefully) watched the film without having seen the book, so I really enjoyed the film. Totally agree though that they do make the main character a bit of a hopeless romantic who relies on men, so I think I shall have to get to the book and see the difference. Also, don't let the rejections get you down. You'll get there, and it's really exciting you're near the end of your new book! Also, yay for nanowrimo, hope you manage to get finished in time. :D
Chuck Norris can beat you up with a grain of sand
I watched From Up On Poppy Hill within the last couple years (I think it's my only Studio Ghibli so far? Really need to rectify that.) and also enjoyed it very much.
We are just getting the dramatization of The Miniaturist here in the states and judging by that, and the incredible success of its author, since the book set off a bidding war, it appears that to be a successful writer of fiction set in some other era currently, you need to throw in some thoroughly modern attitudes and themes, then pad out the glaring anachronisms with utterly boring historical fact like the sugar trade in 17thc Holland, and of course include obligatory explicit sexual content (/snerk) Oh and never bother to solve the supposed mystery upon which the novel hinges, Not a fan as you can probably tell, LOL.
Reading related: What do you think is the best place to start with Trollope? I’m curious about reading some of his work but I’m a bit unsure as to where to start.
R u going to review the hardcopy script of HP & CC, spoilery & non-spoilery? I know some booktubers were lenient & gave it 3/5 stars whereas others were hmm scathing 1 star or so reviewers.
The truest greatness lies in being kind, the truest wisdom in a happy mind.
Summer Non-Reading Wrap Up Wiki
Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling after spring and before autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition, and culture. When it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.. booktube, books, literature,
