This book popped up to read for bookclub. I was reluctant to read it because the story had been done so many times. I am glad I read it, though, because there’s a reason it’s a classic. The story is good, but old. It appeals to both young and old.
I will probably reread it in the future when I don’t have as much going on, but I did enjoy the book and I was glad for a break in the genres I have been reading otherwise.
There are a lot of freebies that are included with Audible. I recently found that I can listen to some podcasts on it.
Goofus and Gallant was a great comic from Highlights magazine. They recently started a podcast for kids. I listened to the first episode so far. It was fun and didn’t require too much thought. It was a story about Grandma going away and leaving the boys in charge of her guinea pigs and plants. The lesson was to find a happy medium in your tasks. Don’t go overboard and don’t ignore the tasks. The music was a little annoying, but the story was ok. Definitely for kids, though.
This was a cute book on how babies learn to love from their parents. It has cute illustrations and a little blurb about each type of animal. Small children would enjoy this being read to them while they look at the pictures.
This is the second book in the series. If I hadn’t read the first book right before starting this book, I wouldn’t have known what was going on. The story seemed forced after the memory part of the story was done. I enjoyed this story less than the first one, but I felt that I needed to know how the first story ended up after the cliffhanger ending.
I enjoyed almost everything about this book. I had to suspend belief that a writer could completely forget about her phone and laptop for several days. Also, I was not thrilled about the ending. I had no choice but to get the next book in the series. I needed to know what happened. If you’re willing to invest in the whole series, then I’d recommend this mostly romance, somewhat suspenseful mystery book.
I picked this up as a palate cleanser between bookclub books. It was included with my Audible subscription, and it was short. It was the perfect time to read it.
This was a light epistolary book about a couple going through a divorce during Covid times. It addresses many of the difficulties with life in during this time, along with general difficulties of time management.
I think that it was well written and hit many points that I hadn’t thought of. Plus it kept my interest for the whole story.
This movie was recommended to me many times. When I took a film class last semester, I ran into a zoom meeting with the writer and director. I really enjoyed the short films by the director. I decided that it was time to actually watch the movie, especially since it was free this week, due to a special by the cable company.
The story is about a filmmaker researching an actress from the 30s who was not given proper film credit in several movies. It’s fiction, but still it is eye-opening.
I definitely recommend this movie. I would have enjoyed it even if it hadn’t been on the free movie list.
