Aww. But maybe you can look for a pdf copy online.


message 21: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) That's what I meant. I can only get a copy online in a month.


message 22: by Aarja, Founder & Groovy Thinker :D (new)

Aarja (groovythinker) | 1885 comments Mod
Oh. Yeah, because it may be illegal.


message 23: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) I've had it on hold on an online library since before it came out...


message 24: by Aarja, Founder & Groovy Thinker :D (new)

Aarja (groovythinker) | 1885 comments Mod
Oh! That's cool. I wanted to preorder it, but oh well.

[spoilers removed] and I can't wait to read it!!"


Have you read a Tale of Witchcraft yet? Is it good? I'm looking into new series and A Tale of Magic sounds interesting!


message 26: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) You should probably read The Land of Stories series first though. Because A Tale of Magic odds a preceding series.


message 27: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) *is


message 28: by Paige: (new)

Paige:  TheReaderRambler&Reviewer | 107 comments Oh okay. I've seen the Land of Stories like a lot!


message 29: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) Yeah, it's good!


message 30: by Paige: (new)

Paige:  TheReaderRambler&Reviewer | 107 comments It’s written by the same guy who played in the series Glee right?


message 31: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) Sorry didn't see this before but yeah.


message 32: by Paige: (new)

Paige:  TheReaderRambler&Reviewer | 107 comments Ahhh that's cool as!

Yes, I agree with LF. I haven't read it yet, but I'm planning to. Also, Anya, once you get it we can Buddy Read :)


message 34: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) Yesss!


message 35: by Aarja, Founder & Groovy Thinker :D (new)

Here's my November TBR:
A Tale of Witchcraft... (BR with LF)
Animal Farm (BR with Devika)
1984 (BR with Devika)
A sherlock holmes collection that I'll add later, maybe.
The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl
The Story of My Life

I'll also continue some books from my October TBR:
The Hobbit, or There and Back Again
Ten Tales from Shakespeare
To Sir, With Love
Totto-chan: The Little Girl at the Window
Tweet Cute
Surprisingly, all of these start from the same letter.
City of Bones

I wish I'm able to complete them, along with wretched schoolwork...

Happy reading! I've read both Orwell's books you have in your lists and liked both - but really loved 1984... Although it's really creepy and dark.

I've also couple Sherlock Holmes -books in my pile ^_^

The Hobbit is something I've read, it was okay but you could notice it was maybe more for younger readers. I liked City of Bones!

I started The Hobbit on 1st Oct, I'm not able to continue as the pacing is kinda slow. I just reviewed City of Bones, and it's good enough!

This thread has been inactive for so long. I blame school.

Anyway, I am in the mood for some dark academia this month, but I have a few BRs and library books too. I also want to reread the Land of Stories, I am just left with 2 books, and then reread A Tale of Magic too since the 3rd book is coming out this month. Oh, and of course, the Bronzed Beasts. I can not wait for my heart to be crushed once again 😌
Here is my TBR, and I would love it if any of you would want to BR any of the books!
Ninth House (Alex Stern, #1) by Leigh Bardugo A Deadly Education (The Scholomance, #1) by Naomi Novik A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes, #2) by Sabaa Tahir Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, #6) by Sarah J. Maas The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett The Book Thief by Markus Zusak An Author's Odyssey (The Land of Stories, #5) by Chris Colfer Worlds Collide (The Land of Stories, #6) by Chris Colfer A Tale of Magic... (A Tale of Magic, #1) by Chris Colfer A Tale of Witchcraft... (A Tale of Magic, #2) by Chris Colfer

so many books, too little time :/
