Treasure Chest by Rithebard – Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears (2020), Miss Fisher’s Murder… http://archiveofourown.org/works/23406160 via @ao3org

(Picture is from trailer) This is about the movie with a quirk, it has Ivy in it from my fan fic series. The idea came to me and I just had to scribble it down.

Warning spoilers! Warning spoilers! Warning spoilers!

 

Chatting With Sherri chats with the cast of; Joe Kronus; Capture The Kaiser!!!! It’s a Sequel of the hit radio-play which takes off where part one ended. Does Terrence get his revenge? Does Joe save the day? listen to the cast chat about on March 15, 2020 at 7pm pt; http://tobtr.com/11688016

 

Murder and Mendelssohn (Phryne Fisher, #20)Murder and Mendelssohn by Kerry Greenwood

I really enjoyed this adventure, it was fun getting to see Phryne take on a Sherlock Holmes type and really showing him that he had it all wrong. We meet her dear friend from the war who she comforts and is there for when he needs her. We get to find about her spy days and meet some of the spooks of her past. Of course, the framework is the choir, which of course Phryne joins to figure out who was the killer. And it was lovely to have so much of Jack Robinson in it, her favorite detective and her dear friend in the books. (In this book more then others that I have read he is closer to the Jack Robinson of the TV series. Especially when it comes to food.)

I love the show; My Life is Murder https://rismovieblog.wordpress.com/2019/11/06/my-life-is-murder/ I have been a fan of Lucy Lawless since the Xena days following her career, going to cons and going to singing performances, she is such a talented lady! I really hope this show is renewed!

Five Complete Miss Marple Novels: The Mirror Crack’d, A Caribbean Mystery, Nemesis, What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw!, The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie

Well, I had read all the Miss Marple books in this volume before, but the first thing that struck me was that the order of the books made no sense. The Mirror Crack’d first, makes no sense at all, since the volume includes The Body in the Library which came first. What Mrs. McGillicudy Saw was also set and written before the first book. I am not sure what the publishers were thinking.

The stories are all brilliant and I enjoyed re-reading the books. I always enjoy Miss Marple and reading these books I found I forgotten parts or replaced them in my mind with adaptions in TV or movies.

The one I enjoyed a lot and forgotten the most was Nemesis. I think I had read the book once or twice but I had completely replaced it in my mind with the adaptions which all have a nephew accompanying her but in the book she went alone. And the Professor was far more involved in the story then in the adaptions.

I know that one stop shops are not really that popular because of the order the books are placed but it is also a way to have several of one of your favorite authors at your fingertips. So I do recommend it.

Book Review; 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
I have to admit this has always been my favorite of the series. I think because of two of the new characters and what they mean to Harry. I also love how Hermione has grown up and she really is becoming her own person. Of course like any preteen she makes major mistakes like taking too many classes, but that just makes you love her more and relate to her more. Poor Harry really goes through the ringer and I appreciate J.K Rowling allows this young man to be competent but make mistakes and be downright confused. I love how he reacts in a certain part when Hermione takes him on a certain trip, (sometimes it is really hard to avoid spoilers.) Ron has always been us to me. He says what the audience would say and reacts the way we do too. It’s hard not to love them. This is the story that you see a glimpse of the adults they will become. I adore Lupin, he is very real to me. Like my best teachers, the ones that always made me think.

Anything else I say would give the game away, but it is my favorite and an exquisite story.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I re-read this for the first time in a long time. I read the original about a year after it came out, and I loved it and gave to other family members. We were all hooked.

I love the movies very much and they are very faithful but it is texture and depth you can never really transfer to film. It is hard to convey the inner world of the characters. I found in reading it again that you can see how confused Harry is, how innocent and yet how brave with more understanding the books. Also their being quite British, the characters rarely show how they truly feel on the outside, you can see it in their eyes, because they are all wonderful actors, so you feel the depth and pain as you look into their eyes. But in a book, you feel it in your gut, it tears your heart out.

I lost my parents since I first read this book, I am not a child, and I was lucky to have my parents for a good majority of my life so I can’t compare to Harry’s pain. He never really knew his parents at all and slowly he gets to know them through others who did, through out the series that knowledge builds. He loves them even more deeply in the later books, but in this book, all he has ever known is their loss. And the ugly untrue rantings of a jealous sister and her cruel idiotic husband. These two people (“The worst muggles in the world!”) abused this baby for 10 years. He hadn’t known love since his parents died, so it is a miracle that he is full of love, kindness, and thoughtfulness. His parents are a part him despite his cruel upbringing from his horrid Aunt and Uncle. And the abuse he suffered from a spoiled, arrogant, egotistical bully of a cousin.

I love so many the characters first and foremost Harry, Ron and Hermione. I am the most like Hermione Granger I think, but because I am book worm and was always different. Still am. I remember only a few years ago a colleague from work and I went out to lunch. We had time so we went shopping and I picked out a necklace, she tilted her head and said, “It is like you, different.” Left handed compliments…sigh, they are something I learned to read early, so out of the three of them, I think I understand Hermione best.

But my favorite has always been Hagrid. He was just a sweet teddy bear, and I have always adored that kind of character. Sweet, kind, a gentle giant, full of a quiet hard earned wisdom, (though he was not book smart, he was life smart) I just adore him.
