My Book Haul: (Thank you, Goodreads, for these images!)
I present the 3rd Edition of a new-ish feature which offers me the chance to respond to some of my Stellar Visitors’ remarks.
KimbaCaffeinated @ the Caffeinated Book Reviewer said “6 years..impressive. I am on WordPress.org and love it How cool you attended the lecture, I would have enjoyed that. Hope you have an amazing week!”
Starry Night Elf’s Reply: “1) I love the way your site looks and recommend it to others often. Maybe I’ll move to WordPress.org someday. 2) The lecture was great and I hope to provide the link to a video when it’s uploaded. 3) Enjoy your week!
Anna @ herding cats & burning soup said “Oh I love Evanovic, Robb and Grafton. Such great series :)”
Starry Night Elf’s Reply: “I always look forward to reading Stephanie Plum’s description of her dearly departed Grandpa Mazur. I love Robb’s world building and Grafton’s Kinsey Milhone.”
Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library said “Great list! I’ve read most of these and they’re all great. I’m pretty sure I’ve read Kay Hooper but it’s been a long time. I definitely need to revisit her! I also want to give Sandra Brown a try. Somehow I’ve never read anything by her.”
Starry Night Elf’s Reply: “1) I think King is underrated. While I prefer his less bloody prose, I think he’s got serious talent and I’m sure he would make an intriguing guest at the dinner table. 2) I haven’t read all of Shakespeare’s works but I’ve marveled each time I’ve studied and/or watched his plays.”
Joey via thoughts and afterthoughts said “I’m not one for many mysteries/thrillers as I get enough of those from watching it on television! I’m sure Evanovich novel is much better than the film adaptation though (now I’ll pretend I never saw it to wipe the memory away…)”
Starry Night Elf’s Reply: “I find I enjoy listening to mysteries on my way to work. As always, the books are better than the films! ;)”
Marissa @ Rae Gun Ramblings said “The Firm was one of the first “big books” I read. Ah the memories”
Starry Night Elf’s Reply: “The Firm was my first Grisham read in a decade (I read The Rainmaker when I was in college). It was scary to think that all these events were oh-so-plausible.”
Bethany DeLoof @ Books By Beth said “Love Evanovich, Grafton, and Connelly! I have a few Robb books that I haven’t picked up yet. Great list!”
Starry Night Elf’s Reply: “I love Evanovich’s dialogue, Grafton’s character studies, and Connelly’s breakdown of the law for laymen. Robb’s look into the future is amazing world building.”
Lois Lowry makes a second appearance on the #TBTB. Last time, I recognized her work of historical fiction – Number the Stars. Today’s #TBTB introduced me to dystopian literature. I first read Lois Lowry’s The Giver on cassette tapes! Does that date me or what? Well, at least I was in junior high at the time. I marveled at how Lowry’s world building and work in science fiction.
A while back, I heard the book would be adapted to screen. I’ve long been curious how this will work. Hopefully, I’ll see the movie soon! I’ve heard wonderful things so far! :)
