A book that ticks something off all four of my reading challenges! Yes please!

I started this one last night and it‘s drawn me straight in. It‘s just what I needed right now!

#atozchallenge. I went out of order but am SO glad I did. I'm not huge into Victorian-ish literature but this was beautiful and such a surprise.

Y'all, as someone raised in the lowcountry of Beaufort, SC, and intimately familiar with Savanah, this was like a trip back home. Berendt captured the lurid gossip and socialite mentality with its balanced sense of practicality well enough for me, and his picture of each character was perfectly imagined.

lynneamch I think reading the book before I visited Savannah really enhanced my enjoyment of the city. I bought this one while I was there. 2y

Where is March even gone?

For me, it was a whirlwind of preparation for the #AtoZChallenge on my blog. I drafted all my 26 posts for April. I'm once again blogging about the Twenties. This is the perfect year!

Sorry to say l wasn't as active as l would have liked in the Reading Ireland Month.

Time to go back to Litsy challenges. But you can read my 1920s posts here https://theoldshelter.com/living-the-twenties-atozchallenge-2020-theme-reveal/

So l reveal the theme of my #AtoZChallenge for this year. I'm back to Weimar Germany, exploring 1920s cabaret more closely. I'm sure it will be a fantastic journey.

As per the challenge, l'll be posting one post a day on my blog for the entire month of April (except Sundays) following the letters of the alphabet.

I loved listening to this book in the car.
Overall it was a great listen. I felt it could have done without some of the language. I loved listening to different perspective on life.

I got this in a bok swap last year, and picked it up this year because it was a Q boon for #AtoZchallenge and it fits #nonfiction2019. It was not all that great, but some good points were made.
