A little late posting this.
I think Poison Ivy would know a thing or two about spices.

My favorite book of 2009, the magic, the hardship , the confusion of New York in the 70s comes alive in this book & I #feelitstill .As a tightrope walker balances between the twin towers , the city dwellers of all types try to make sense of their lives .In a city like New York, you are often one chance encounter away from life changing experiences. #aprella

emilyhaldi Such a good book 🙌🏻 2y
Leftcoastzen @emilyhaldi I absolutely adore it. 2y

The Great Gatsby | Francis Scott Fitzgerald
post image

It's hard to know if I #feelitstill for Gatsby, a novel I haven't reread since high school, but seems to have never left the broader cultural conversation. My high opinion of it hasn't changed, but I think I view the symbols a little differently: Dr. Eckleberg and the green light don't seem nearly as romantic now- I almost wonder whether it's dangerous to be exposing impressionable teenagers to them. The novel's last line sticks in my head more.

Billypar Thanks @Mdargusch @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola and @Cinfhen for hosting an outstanding #aprella in true rock star form! 🎸🎹🎤 2y

The weirdness that is the Heaven's Gate Cult I #feelitstill initially I thought today's prompt was #feellitstill 🔥 I think that's just as fitting. At the start it did sound pretty lit, we're just hanging out on Earth until our spaceship picks us up to take us into outer space, seems pretty chill until Marshall tells you to put on your Nikes, eat the laced apple sauce, and put the plastic bag over your head.. 👽 it's been fun, bitches! ✌🏻#aprella

This book - I #feelitstill after reading it a year ago. I don‘t think I can ever forget the haunting, despicable characters. #aprella

Thanks to everyone who brightened my day as I read your clever and funny and insightful comments and prompts during this past month! I had so much fun! Thanks @Cinfhen for letting us join in! 💕💕💕

Mdargusch @Rachellynnwright there are so many unlikeable characters in this book but for some reason it was compelling. Maybe you hated it for the awful people. 2y

#Aprella #FeelItStill 🐛 I love this song but it is a total ear worm. 😆

Taking inspiration from the years mentioned in the lyrics, here are the best-selling fiction books from 1966 & 1986. (These are their original covers.) People definitely feel it still for both of these books! One day I will reread them both. 📚📚📚

Mahalo to @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola @Mdargusch and @Cinfhen for hosting such a fun April musical challenge! 😘😘😘😘

My Mum and I used to read Barbara Erskine together. This was her very loved and well read copy of her favourite. It was on her bed side cabinet when we cleared her flat after she died and I had to keep it (despite having 3 copies of my own!).
Happy memories ❤️

I felt utter confusion upon finishing this book as to why it is such a revered classic.... and I #feelitstill. Time has not allowed my analysis any further progress 😆 if anyone would like to educate me please do!!

Thanks to everybody who participated in this month‘s #aprella challenge!! It was so fun following your creative posts each day 🙌🏻 I hope you aren't sick of the Dargusch family bc we will be back soon... 😉

Reviewsbylola OMFG hated this book. 2y
britt_brooke I love this one, particularly the dialogue between Zooey and his mom. It‘s an odd glimpse into the normal (and flawed) Glass family. It really seems like people love or hate Salinger. Where do you all stand on The Catcher in the Rye? @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola 2y
Reviewsbylola I really liked The Catcher in the Rye! I don‘t remember what it was about this one that I hated so much, I just remember that I was irritated with how much I disliked it! 😂 @britt_brooke 2y
britt_brooke @Reviewsbylola Well, at least you liked Catcher. 😆🤗 2y
Mdargusch Hmmm. I read this so long ago I don‘t remember whether I liked it or not 😂 2y
emilyhaldi I guarantee that you didn‘t 🙄 @Mdargusch 2y
emilyhaldi @britt_brooke @Reviewsbylola to be honest, I‘m not sure if I liked Catcher? I read it in school and hardly remember 🤷🏻‍♀️ maybe I need to try it again! 2y
Kimberlone This one is a bit overrated. Personally I prefer Nine Stories or Catcher in the Rye as those books are more self contained and conclusive. 2y
britt_brooke @emilyhaldi It‘s one of my favorites, so I vote yes. 😉💚 2y
