This series is a sheer delight! These installments cover Betsy‘s freshman and sophomore years at Deep Valley High School, and all of the angst and excitement involved in coming of age. (Surprisingly, I don‘t find Betsy‘s angst annoying, unlike that of more modern protagonists. 😆) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

LeahBergen I don‘t find it annoying either! 😆 2w

Two of my favorite books are on sale for #kindle today. #BetsyTacy #KindleDeal #ebook

MaureenMc I was intrigued by Mrs. Muir. I‘ll definitely pick it up now (I always trust your recommendations!). 2mo
mabell Oh perfect season to try the Ghost and Mrs. Muir! 2mo
rubyslippersreads @MaureenMc What a nice compliment. ☺️ After you‘ve read it, you might want to watch the movie with Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison. 2mo

dabbe @rubyslippersreads I've seen the movie TONS of times and love it! Is the book close in plot to the movie? 🤩 2mo
rubyslippersreads @dabbe Yes and no. I love the book, but I think I love the movie even more. ❤️ 2mo
LeahBergen Two that you‘ve already made me buy in the past! 😆😆 2mo
dabbe @rubyslippersreads That's unusual, isn't it? But hey, it's Tierney and Rexie! BTW, I had a huge crush on him after this movie, MY FAIR LADY, and even DR. DOLITTLE! 🤩🤩🤩 2mo
rubyslippersreads @dabbe Did you know his nickname used to be “Sexy Rexy”? 🤣 2mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen I‘m an enabler. 😹 2mo
dabbe @rubyslippersreads No! Well, that makes me feel better, having my crush on a guy that was 60+ years old when I was 13! 🤩🤣😃 2mo
MaureenMc @rubyslippersreads I really should. I love Rex Harrison! (edited) 2mo

#tlt thanks @mabell
1. Peeta and Katniss
2. Betsy and Joe
3. Veronica and Logan (i could not watch the new episodes after the first one)
and bonus- Maggie and Glen - i‘m still grieving. Also for fun- Luke and Laura even though it did not last.#nostalgia
anyone else want to play?

dabbe 1. From TWILIGHT. YES! 😍
2. Are Betsy and Joe from GREAT EX? LOVED those two! Joe's one of my favorite characters in all of literature! 😍
3. I don't know Veronica and Logan, but are Luke and Laura from GENERAL HOSPITAL? I still watch reruns of them on youtube and am DESOLATE that they didn't last forever! 😢
Thanks for playing! 💜🧡💜
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @dabbe - Peeta and Katniss are from the Hunger Games… you might be thinking of Bella and Edward? This is such a fun idea - my mind is currently blank but hopefully it‘ll start working soon 😝 3mo
Chrissyreadit @dabbe now i‘m looking up great ex- Betsy and Joe from Betsy Tacy Series and tagged book, and Veronica and Logan from Veronica Mars- TV, Movie and books. 3mo

Chrissyreadit @5feet.of.fury yes Beth‘s death was heartbreaking! 3mo

Chrissyreadit @mabell i‘m eclectic…🥸 3mo
bthegood @Chrissyreadit @dabbe Now I'm singing “think of Laura, laugh don't cry, I know she'd want it that way“ - omg my whole dorm watched that show!! 😂 (edited) 3mo
Chrissyreadit @bthegood OMG- yes i heard that song in my head as i read your words! 3mo

It's been a tough few days. Finishing up Content Lists for Insurance Company. Just reliving over and over again all the things we lost in the house fire. And then these arrived!

Stumbled upon 1st Editions on Ebay. Excellent condition with just a few marks and tears.

Betsy Book Mail was just what I needed to cheer me up. 📖📚🤓

julieclair Those covers are the best! 8mo
Ruthiella Beautiful editions! A little retail therapy. ❤️ 8mo
LeahBergen Ooo, gorgeous! 8mo
