Re: Books!

I'm super excited for the release of Rick Riordan's the Tyrant's Tomb as part of the Trials of Apollo series! I should be receiving it soon in the mail but it seems they've delayed the delivery by one week Smiley Surprised

Re: Books!

I'm currently reading Carrying Albert Home by Homer Hickam. It's a quirky, semi-true story about a road trip with an alligator named Albert!

Oh, did you guys know that Homer Hickam built one of the first ever rockets? He also has a movie called October Sky and a book called The Rocket Boys. I recommend the book and movie to y'all. 

Re: Books!

@Animallover2003 Carrying Albert Home was the first book of his I've read - I'm yet to check out his other works! Will have to add it to my list. Thanks for the recommendation Smiley Very Happy

I finished Educated by Tara Westover the other day (TW for family violence). Now I'm reading another autobiography - Born At The Right Time by Ron McCallum, who is Australia's first blind professor Smiley Surprised

Re: Books!

I have been reading Big Little Lies (very slowly I may add whoops haha!)

 

Has anyone read this one? What are your thoughts on it? I'm finding it a bit hard to get into Smiley Indifferent Maybe because I am reading it too slowly!

Re: Books!

I love Big Little Lies @Jess1-RO! It's actually one of my favourite books of all time. In contrast, I found it really easy to get into, but then again I had quite a lot of spare time at the time to read it. But anyway, it gets better in the end - there's a really great plot twist which I really liked! There's also the TV series as well based off it. Have you seen/heard of it? It's really good - like one of the better tv show adaptations in my opinion.

Anyway, I'm currently rereading Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman. I haven't read this book since I was in primary school! It feels so good getting back into Pullman's masterful storytelling! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Books!

I’ll have to put some more time into it and block out some regular reading time. I have heard it has been made into a film @Esperanza67, I’ll have to add it to my Christmas holiday movie list!

Re: Books!

@Esperanza67 I've read "Big little lies" as well and I'm the same as you, absolutely LOVED it!!! I havn't watched the TV series though as I can be quite skeptical of remakes of books, however, I am curious to see how they've done it!
I'm going to watch it in my summer holidays!

Re: Books!

They've changed Madeline Martha Mackenzie's storyline a bit to make her storyline more interesting, but other than that, the show is really good @statuscaring! Especially the acting portrayal of the main characters!
