#BookReview : 11.22.63
by Stephen King ⭐⭐⭐(3.5)
Jake Epping is an ordinary high school teacher who is presented with a chance to change history after a time portal is brought to his attention. He's tasked with the mission of stopping the assasination of John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963, and solving one of the biggest mysteries of the 20th century. This is one of my husband's favourite books, so I did the wifely duty of reading (or rather, listening) to this TOME. The first half kept my attention, and I was really enjoying the direction that the story was heading. I appreciated the 'living the same day over and over' trope, and though I didn't love Jake as a character, he was superior to King's usual type of character. But the last half quickly plummeted my rating from a 5 star to a solid 3.5. It dragged ridiculously, and I found the love interest way too 'plain Jane' to buy them as a couple. In classic King style, I was also very annoyed at the descriptions of literally every single female character's bust. So icky. To summarise, I'm still in a complicated relationship with Stephen King. The adaption has been put my TBW though. What's a book to show/movie adaptation that you're excited for?

Iniziamo una nuova avventura col cuore che batte al ritmo dei tasti della tastiera che ogni giorno usiamo per raggiungervi.
Lo facciamo perché si fa tanto un parlare di crisi del settore, di librerie che chiudono, lettori che non leggono, editori che pubblicano troppo, internet che uccide. Mai nessuno che, dietro la retorica, proponga soluzioni, mai nessuno che pronunci quella parolina meravigliosa che è #INNOVAZIONE . Noi di Frab’s, però, amiamo le sfide, quindi abbiamo deciso di portare in Italia, a Roma, il primo esperimento di digital commerce applicato all’editoria.
Finding Sky, Joss Stirling (@joss.stirling) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ If you saw my post a couple days ago you would know that this is my favourite book, you will also know I have now read it around 15 times😂
I am an avid re-reader but when it comes to Sky’s story I fall in love with the book every time I revisit it.
Abandoned at 6 and adopted at 10 Sky knows nothing about her past, not even her name. After moving to the quiet town of Wrickenridge, Colorado from Richmond Sky can’t help noticing the schools ‘bad boy’ Zed. But there is more to their connection that Sky understands. “I get so much from you, it’s like you’re broadcasting on all frequencies”
This is a perfect YA fantasy romance, great if you want something exploring the possibilities for advanced humans in ur everyday lives. This is book one in a six part series and what I love is that we learn more about how zed and sky develop in the later books despite them not being the focal characters!
It’s sunny again! ☀️💃 Can you tell that the weather has a huge effect on my moods? 😂
Today I listed this 1990’s large illustrated copy of P&P on Etsy! It’s like new except for one bend corner on the back cover. .
Have a great day! x

■ «…Τι όμορφο που είναι ένα βιβλίο, που επινοήθηκε για να πιάνεται στο χέρι, ακόμη και στο κρεβάτι, ακόμη και μέσα σε μία βάρκα, ακόμη και εκεί όπου δεν υπάρχουν ηλεκτρικές πρίζες, ακόμη κι αν έχει αποφορτιστεί κάθε μπαταρία και αντέχει τα σημάδια και τα τσαλακώματα, μπορεί να αφεθεί να πέσει καταγής ή να παρατηθεί ανοιγμένο στο στήθος ή στα γόνατα όταν μας παίρνει ο ύπνος, μπαίνει στην τσέπη, φθείρεται, καταγράφει την ένταση, την επιμονή ή τον ρυθμό των αναγνώσεών μας, μας υπενθυμίζει (αν φαίνεται πολύ καινούργιο ή άκοπο) ότι δεν το διαβάσαμε ακόμη…» [ Uberto Eco ] ■
