I‘m going to be recommending this book for a long time. Deborah is a dreadful, terrible person, but it‘s so fun reading about her!

“But Deborah resisted all of Madeleine‘s suggestions for companionable evenings; if I once give in, she told herself, I‘m done for, certain in her own mind that even a sherry party or a game of bridge could have only one conclusion. She martyred herself till her very martyrdom became her excuse for her release.”

Can't wait to dive into my Persephone book haul. If you have never read one of their books you are doing yourself a disservice. One of my favorite stores in London and they ship to the us! 🇬🇧🇺🇸📚

#FunFridayPhoto - Luckily, the book I'm currently reading is sitting right beside me. I guess the aliens will get to watch me read about a young woman who sleeps her way around WW2 London. 🙄👾

#MarchIntoReading Day 1 - March #TBR

After failing spectacularly at keeping with February's TBR, I'm giving it another go in March.

Pickpick

Laski's tale of a soldier's wife getting caught up in the whirlwind of glamour and extramarital romance in wartime London reads like Fitzgerald, but with the added bonus of having been written by a woman and therefore approaching everything from the underrepresented female perspective. Laski's writing is perceptive, uncompromising, and caustically funny. You may not like anyone in this book, but you will find them all utterly convincing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

quirkyreader I am glad that you are enjoying it. Did you get it from the shop or online? 3y
MLRio @quirkyreader From the shop! Finally went after living in London for a year. 3y
quirkyreader I will make it there someday. Now I just have to settle with having an account with them. 🐸🐙 3y
MLRio @quirkyreader At least there's that! 3y
