TELL ME TUESDAY is a floating feature, depending on your reading style, where you tell us what you read last, what you are reading now, what you will be reading next from your tbr pile, and why. I am curious why people read what they read, so tell me!
ADULT LITERARY FICTION
COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES
Published 1919 - Own Physical and Ebook
I re-read Winesburg, Ohio for my year of classics. I loved this book so much that I wrote my final American Lit paper on the hand imagery in it. I am always in fear of re-reading favorite books from years ago, but this one didn't let me down.
Published 1972 - Hoopla Audiobook Borrow
I realized I needed to catch up with my re-read totals and I was in the mood, so I snuck this one in, even though it is long. Peter Capaldi is a fabulous narrator.
Published 1999 - Own physical and Ebook
This is my TURTLE RECALL READING CHALLENGE book for this month. It's also the current group read book for the TRRC Witches story arc read-along. This is the last title in the Witches arc of the Discworld series.
PRACTICAL MAGIC PREQUEL
Publishes October 6th - NetGalley
I know I said I was going to get Bestiary finished before its publication date, but I can't bear to read more than a half chapter at a time, and it's going to take a while anyway, so I set it aside for this ARC which I have been looking forward to. And yes, there has already been a Practical Magic prequel and this is in actuality the prequel to that prequel, The Rules of Magic. As some of you know I loathed Practical Magic (watch the movie instead, it fixed everything wrong with the book, ha ha), but The Rules of Magic was stellar, so I am extra excited about this book!
When I went to Goodreads to get the links for the Alice Hoffman books I realized when I deleted my Hoffman TBR shelf, in January, that GR marked all of the thirty, or so, books as read. *screaming internally* Why, Goodreads, why?
Dune! Don't get me wrong... I loved the first movie as did most people who read the book first, but I'm excited for this new film imagining of the story, too. It looks stellar.
