Generation - J.J. Green

Dracula - Bram Stoker,David Suchet,Tom Hiddleston I bought this awhile back, but realized I neglected to add it to my shelves. I searched for it in every possible way I could, and it didn't turn up. I then began to look through all editions of Dracula, and as I scrolled through page after page, I had just about had come to the conclusion that I was going to have to add it myself. I wasn't relishing the thought.

 

But, then...it showed up.

 

As the very last result.

 

Of 93 pages of results.

 

It's done. The shelf is made.

My Richard Armitage shelf.

Continuing my quest to own all things narrated by Richard Armitage...

I have added these to my collection:

 

FREE: Classic Love Poems - William Shakespeare,Edgar Allan Poe,Elizabeth Barrett Browning,Richard Armitage The BL book page says "free," but alas, it no longer is. Still, $3.95 to listen to Mr. Armitage read poetry to me is a small price to pay. Even if it is rather short.

 

The Bloody Chamber - Angela Carter,Richard Armitage,Emilia Fox This was just released in March and features not only Mr. Armitage, but also Emilia Fox. (Not, Emilia Pardo Bazan as BL changed it to when I added the book. Librarians, I submitted changes, hopefully, I did it right. *sighs*) Used a credit for this one.

 

Their Lost Daughters - Richard Armitage,Joy Ellis This is a pre-order, coming out at the end of May, and despite what the audible page says, this is actually the second in the Jackman and Evans series, at least according to what I've seen on both amazon and GR. I used a credit for this one as well.

 

You know, I have a shelf titled, "Because Tom Hiddleston, that's why," perhaps I need one for Richard Armitage as well...

Got books in the mail today!

First

 

I saw the first of this series on amazon awhile back, but the listed age range of 9-12 put me off buying it, because I was unsure if it was going to be too simplified for my taste. When my local library started offering the Hoopla app, I was pleased to see the first book was available to check out there. So, I checked it out, read it, and loved it. The second in the trilogy (I think it's a trilogy) came out a little over a week ago, and again Hoolpla had it, so I checked it out and loved it, too. I decided I liked them enough to add physical copies to my home library, so I hopped on amazon and used some of my hoarded gifcards to buy them.

 

They're lovely hardcover books. Look how pretty!

 

 

Second

 

Better World Books had a lightning sale--30% off 4 or more used books--and naturally I couldn't resist. Barricade in Hell is the second in a series I started several years back. I won the first on GR. I always intended to continue with the series, but never did. I watched and enjoyed The Alienist, so I decided I wanted to read the book. I've been meaning to try out the Amelia Peabody books for ages, so I thought, "Why not now?" I needed one more book, and I stumbled across the Heather Graham. She's kind of hit or miss for me, but I decided to go for it.

Unknown Gentleman with Music Books and Lute (c. 1534) by Hans Holbein the Younger [x]

My Sunday is already going well.

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson, Richard Armitage

I was browsing on audible, and I stumbled across this book. It, apparently has been out since October and I somehow missed it. I was going to use a credit to buy it, but I was able to get it for $1.99 instead because I already own the kindle version.

 

I would listen to Richard Armitage narrate the phone book, so him narrating a story I enjoy? SCORE!

 

Secondly, I was able to add this edition to BL with no issue at all this time! WOOT!

Generation - J.J. Green

I'm going to give up adding new books. I just added this one, and did exactly as told to add a new author, and when I submitted it, it listed the author as Simon R. Green instead of the J.J. Green that I typed in (and pressed enter.)

 

Again, I've submitted an edit for the librarians to review.

 

 

Penny Dreadful - The Awakening

Penny Dreadful - The Awakening - Chris King

I enjoyed this so much. It also makes me really, really miss the show even more than I did before. I am still so upset it was canceled the way it was.

 

This is a glimpse into what could have been had it been allowed to continue.

 

**Also, I had to add this edition myself (and I'm never sure if I do that right), and when I added the Illustrator Jesus Hervas, BL credited it to Jesus Santos Hervas, who is apparently a translator of an edition of Anna Karenina. I'm not entirely sure they're the same person, so I submitted an edit.
