Getting ready to crack this book open
We've developed a really bad habit of missing church a couple times a month (we attend a Saturday night service) to relax and - to be completely honest - hide. My husband often watches something with the kids while I read. The hiding part will end when this pregnancy does. We just get so stressed near the end and lots of grief and pain surfaces. My husband says we're like turtles, which is so true!

Today I taught in middle school for the first time, so I thought I’d share one of my new favourite middle school reads! I received this finished copy of @catvalente  The Glass Town Game from @simonschusterca (thank you!!) and it was such a fun book. .
.
During my undergrad I studied the Brontë’s and grew to love their imaginations. The Glass Town Game is perfect if you love adventure and fantasy. A background in the Brontë’s is not required, but it does add to the enjoyment of the novel. I recommend this book for children of all ages (even us adults ;)) .
.
QOTD: what is your favourite middle school read?

I was sick for most of the long holiday weekend and since it’s freezing cold out I’m still not leaving the house voluntarily. All 500 pages of The Glass Town Game is a perfect #fridayreads. #theglasstowngame #catherynnemvalente #middlegrade
The Glass Town Game was such a fun and whimsical read. I loved all the little cameos like names from the Bronte's books and famous authors from the era.

I've been nerdy and excited about Catherynne M Valente's books for 9 years now 😊 I received The Orphans Tales duo (sadly not with me so not pictured) for Christmas in 2008 and I've never looked back! I've even bought anthologies because she wrote one of the stories in it 😂
.

Its an early payday for me, I've just finished work and now I'm going to get ready to go out with some friends who I haven't seen in ages 😁 hope you all have awesome Fridays!

The Glass Town Game has such lovely illustrations and end pages. This one depicts Charlotte and Emily dancing with the Duke of Wellington and Lord Byron who happen to be made of iron and fur pelts respectively 💖

4 stars for a book that is reminiscent and starts an interest in the history of the Bronte family.  #thethoughtspot

Do you read dedication pages in books? Or do you skip over them? I love the dedication in @catvalente’s THE GLASS TOWN GAME. ☺️

I missed yesterday's #raisingreadersnov prompt for illustrators/beautiful books. But I knew I had to share this one. I recently  finished reading #theglasstowngame and while I did rather enjoy the story I was blown away by the illustrations by Rebecca Green. I was so taken by her illustrations that I had to purchase two additional books she Illustrated. The two pictures I included, if you choose to swipe, are two of my favorites. The one because it has a lion. And who doesn't love a lion in a story book? And the other is of Bluestockings! I am obviously partial to Bluestockings! 
This book is a fantasy book and I found it to be quirky, youthful and slightly different from all other fantasy books I have read.

Catherine Valente's The Glass Town Game is a whimsical fantasy based on the Brontes' juvenilia. And the prose is absolutely magical! What is your favorite Bronte work?

OCTOBER WRAP-UP PART 2!
As I said yesterday, I had to split my #wrapup because of how many books I read so here are the remaining 6 reads.
•
•
- The Glass Town Game. A sort of Jumanji-esque novel about the Brontë siblings. It is such a fun middle-grade novel. Full of references to the Brontë novels.
- Elmet. My favourite of all the Man Booker books I read. However, the ending was a bit underwhelming.
- Franklin's Flying Bookshop. Short, sweet and featuring a dragon who loves to read. It's great.
- Everything I Never Told You. The hype is real. The way Ng writes is so compelling. The story is tough but it's very well- written and the characters are all fleshed out.
- Rebecca. So freaking good.  A roller-coaster of emotions. The tension is insane. So glad I finally read it.
- The Tobacconist. My favourite this month. I had high expectations and they were met. Again Seethaler writes about normal people, dealing with whatever comes their way, in an extraordinary manner.

This is my TBR for November and it includes two rereads which is unusual for me. I started An Enchantment of Ravens today although it's a tad early because I couldn't help myself 😆 Can't wait to get to the rest of these especially Uprooted and Strange The Dreamer (which is my book club's pick for the month)

This last Saturday I checked out @secretgardenbks because of their amazing sign outside their shop. It just leads you in, so of course I had to obey. I am so glad I did! They had a signed copy of Catherynne M. Valente’s new book, who quickly became one of my favorite authors this last year ❤️ I am so glad I went there, this made my weekend! Who else loves signed books? I just think it makes the book a little more personal have the authors signature. •

I'm so excited to read The Glass Town Game. It's a middle grade book about the four Bronte children having an adventure in a fantasy world they created! I have so much love for the Brontës' works (and, of course I love kid's lit), so this book is very intriguing to me. And look at the lovely art on the cover!! Moody, gothic Brontë writing is what I'm craving in this chilly weather, so I might reread one of their books after reading this. •
•
From Goodreads: "Together the Brontë children must battle with a world of their own creation if they are to make it back to England alive in this magical celebration of authorship, creativity, and classic literature from award-winning author Catherynne M. Valente."

Do you like reading fictional stories about real life people? Usually they really intrigue me, but I've found that they can be hit or miss. I read a kid's book last year about Truman Capote and Harper Lee solving mysteries as kids, and it was just okay.

What's the best middle grade book that came out this year? 🤔 For me, it's @catvalente's THE GLASS TOWN GAME. It follows the Brontë siblings, as children, falling into the magical world of Glass Town that they actually wrote as children. I love the Brontës, particularly Charlotte - I cried when I was able to see the original JANE EYRE manuscript in a museum last year - and this book is the perfect homage to them and to the concept of siblinghood and to words themselves. It's a total delight.

When Catherynne M. Valente announced she was publishing a new middle-grade fantasy novel about the Brontë siblings I just went immediately online and I pre-ordered it. I mean, fantasy + the Brontës.... what could go wrong? I hope nothing 😂

This week's #bookhaul 😁
.

My friend @joetopliffe wrote a book and this week I was pleasantly surprised by my own copy arriving at work! I'm in the acknowledgements which is pretty cool 😎  If you like sci-fi and giant robots you should maybe check it out 😆
.
.
Finally got my hands on The Glass Town Game by my fave, Catherynne M Valente.  It's a fantasy about the Brontë siblings and the stories they wrote as children.

Two charity shop finds today- Bit late to the @hobbsquad party but I finally have a copy of Assassin's Apprentice! And this copy of Daughter Of Smoke and Bone looks brand new and I had exactly the right amount of change so I couldn't leave it behind 😆

The Glass Town Game from Catherynne M. Valente came out this month! I absolutely loved working on this book. I illustrated the cover, but also ten interiors and a frontis piece, all filled to the brim with vivid detail and magic. ✨ Special thanks to the best AD, Sonia! Find it at your local bookstore! #theglasstowngame

I unboxed this novel with the intent of placing it in the LFL straightaway. Alas, it took a brief detour to the top of my #tbrpile . Just can't resist a pretty cover and matching bookmarks. No apologies. #theglasstowngame #littlefreelibrary #currentlyreading

A huge thank you to @simonkids for surprising me with this ARC of The Glass Town Game
by Catherynne M. Valente!😊
This book sounds wonderful and fun!❤️
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
•SYNOPSIS:
Charlotte and Emily must enter a fantasy world that they invented in order to rescue their siblings in this adventurous and fiercely intelligent novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making.

Inside a small Yorkshire parsonage, Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne Brontë have invented a game called Glass Town, where their toy soldiers fight Napoleon and no one dies. This make-believe land helps the four escape from a harsh reality: Charlotte and Emily are being sent away to a dangerous boarding school, a school they might not return from. But on this Beastliest Day, the day Anne and Branwell walk their sisters to the train station, something incredible happens: the train whisks them all away to a real Glass Town, and the children trade the moors for a wonderland all their own.

This is their Glass Town, exactly like they envisioned it…almost. They certainly never gave Napoleon a fire-breathing porcelain rooster instead of a horse. And their soldiers can die; wars are fought over the potion that raises the dead, a potion Anne would very much like to bring back to England. But when Anne and Branwell are kidnapped, Charlotte and Emily must find a way to save their siblings. Can two English girls stand against Napoleon’s armies, especially now that he has a new weapon from the real world? And if he escapes Glass Town, will England ever be safe again?

Together the Brontë siblings must battle with a world of their own creation if they are to make it back to England alive in this magical celebration of authorship, creativity, and classic literature from award-winning author Catherynne M. Valente.

Happy release day to @catvalente and THE GLASS TOWN GAME! ✨
The Brontë siblings, as children, fall into their made-up world of Glass Town and must find their way home in this enchanting middle grade novel. It's not just an homage to the Brontës, but what it means to be a sibling and to stories itself. I absolutely adored it and can't wait to reread it. If you love stories and reading, it should absolutely be on your to-read list - it's the kind of story that honors everything you love. 😍
