Reading progress update: I've read 3 out of 254 pages.
Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen,Marilyn Butler,Claire Lamont

I know this was meant as a parody, and Austen's introductory caveat already had me smirking. What I did not expected was to be laughing out loud less than one paragraph in.

 

No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy would have supposed her born to be an heroine. Her situation in life, the character of her father and mother, her own person and disposition, were all equally against her. Her father was a clergyman, without being neglected, or poor, and a very respectable man, though his name was Richard -- and he had never been handsome. He had a considerable independence besides two good livings -- and he was not in the least addicted to locking up his daughters.

Reading progress update: I've listened 1266 out of 4260 minutes.
Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection - Arthur Conan Doyle,Stephen Fry

Done with Adventures. As much as I liked it before, it was so much better this time around.

 

Now I'm listening at the Memoirs Foreword, and I can't stop laughing!! (as in, serious, LOUD laughter) This was NOT what I expected when he said Holmes had changed his life!!

 

I'm so in love with this audiobook collection

All the fucking stars
The Ordinary Princess - M.M. Kaye

The story was endlessly amusing, the stabs at fairy tales conventions were perfect, the romance was cute and lovely, and the illustrations were gorgeous.

 

I only took this long to read it because I did not want it to end, and I sooo want a hard-copy, even though it doesn't seem like there exist a Spanish edition. I'd be willing to translate it for free to make it available, that's how much I loved it.

Do you not deduce something from that?”
“We have got to the deductions and the inferences,” said Lestrade, winking at me. “I find it hard enough to tackle facts, Holmes, without flying away after theories and fancies.”
“You are right,” said Holmes demurely; “you do find it very hard to tackle the facts.”

 

Somehow, Fry manages to make the exchange even more savage from both parties

Single and Looking Daisy: A Funny Laugh Out Loud Feel Good Summer Read
Single and Looking Daisy: A Funny Laugh Out Loud Feel Good Summer Read - Belinda Austin

Secret Lives of Sisters, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: Author’s description in my Netgalley group on Goodreads

The Characters:

Daisy:
Shakespeare the cat:
David

The Story:

For me this did not live up to the hype of the title. I could see where the author was trying to be funny but it just wasn’t my kind of humor. It struck me as Broad City humor which I just don’t like.

I found Daisy to mostly be a hot mess. Her easy acceptance of her cat talking to her leads me to believe she is mentally unstable and I drew the line at the stalker like behavior of neighbor David. Daisy should run far far away from Mr. “I just want to watch you eat” and “sip slower” #HeebieJeebies

The Random Thoughts:

*DNF so no rating
