Death in the Stocks | Georgette Heyer
post image
Pickpick

My first time reading Georgette Heyer - already have a library hold on another, so it won't be the last. Definitely understand why she's a classic, excellent prose and great characterization. A thoroughly enjoyable read, especially on a week when I was quite tired.

1935 for #192019challenge (yep still doing that, though haven't posted much for a while)

I finished #192019challenge ... and I‘m as sad as I am happy about it 😕/❤️🤷🏻‍♀️
This has been an amazing enriching reading journey, & I‘m so glad I went on it.
@Marchpane thank you SO much for coming up with this & sharing it - it‘s the best thing I‘ve ever done as a reader ❤️

If anyone is looking to take on something like this, do it. Try doing 192021 - you have 2 1/2 years to do it. You will be so glad you did 🥰

What did I just read???
This play is my pick for 1921 for #192019challenge and though the adaptation I got is modern, the spirit comes through.
A company of actors is practicing a play, when 6 people come in. They say they are characters left unfinished by their author, and they‘re looking to set their story down.
The actors oblige them.
What ensues is a whirlwind of mindf$&!ery that shows the shadow side of creation.
I‘d love to see this.

rohit-sawant Oo, sold! Reading your review, first thing that popped into my mind was King's The Dark Half 😄 5mo
Sweettartlaura @rohit-sawant it‘s definitely a precursor. Shorter - different because it‘s written for the stage - but definitely reminiscent. Read all the intro/stage directions - they help bring this to life, as well. And let me know what you think 🙂 5mo

My 1920 pick for #192019challenge & for author‘s first book for my local library challenge.
This is Agatha Christie‘s first book, & first Poirot story.
It‘s a little hard to appreciate 99 years later - at this point it‘s beyond formulaic. But it‘s worth a read/listen regardless: it‘s engaging; it‘s historic; it‘s short & sweet; and if you have any interest in the mystery genre, it‘s a hallmark.

Emilymdxn Fabulous review #teamtellhemingwaytofuckoff do you like Clarice Lispector? She's been redeeming modernism from men like Hemingway for me recently! 5mo
DarcysMom @Emilymdxn I have not read any Clarice Lispector. I will have to check her out. Love the hashtag! I am definitely a member of #teamtellhemingwaytofuckoff! 5mo
