White is for Witching | Helen Oyeyemi
post image

#BewitchedBotheredandBewildered #MayMovieMagic
I'm about to post a gushing review of my first Oyeyemi and after I finished it I immediately added more of hers to my TBR.
You could say I was *bewitched* by her magical style, *bothered* that I don't have more of her books on my shelf, and *bewildered* that I haven't read her before now.
@rohit-sawant @Cinfhen

Aimeesue She‘s one of my faves. Boy, Snow, Bird is my favorite of hers, I think. Or Mister Fox. Or Gingerbread. Scratch that, they‘re all good. 6mo
Billypar @Aimeesue I read Mister Fox: I didn't want it to end. I could have gone back to the beginning and started over- not something I usually feel, even with books I like. 6mo
Cinfhen I wish I could appreciate her uniqueness more but her books just don‘t work well for me. I do have and will try soon 6mo

Billypar @Cinfhen I don't know how her others compare to Mr. Fox, but I could see how if you weren't on board with the overall style, it would be a little frustrating. 6mo
Aimeesue @Cinfhen @Billypar I love her style, but I can see why some don't. Warning, though: Gingerbread is probably the most Oyeyemi of all there's a loose plot, but you'll probably be lost a lot of the time - not a whole lot of sensible coherence. 6mo
Cinfhen I‘m a little worried @Aimeesue 😬 6mo

Tanisha_A Your collection! 😍 6mo
Tanisha_A Oh and I love the Hedwig pop! Soooo cute 6mo
TrishB @Cinfhen definitely not 😁 6mo
TrishB @Tanisha_A it was hand cream 😁 my daughter brought me it for Christmas- you screw the top off and the cream was inside. 6mo
Hufflepuffle @TrishB what a perfect place for a Harry Potter shelf!! 6mo
Ddzmini I have the series to read and want to buy the movies on amazon there 59?? For all 8 😳 so I‘m waiting until payday but I still want to wait until I read all the books before watching the movies 😝🙌🏽😋📖 6mo
TrishB @Ddzmini I love both 💕 the books have a lot of stuff in them that‘s not in the films (as always!). Maybe the perfect way would be book/film for each one? 6mo
Tanisha_A @TrishB Oh wow! It's really awesome. Your daughter picked up the best! 6mo

Though this quote isn‘t stated in the actual book text, it still shows Darcy‘s devotion to Elizabeth 🥰

(Day 26 - #BewitchedBotheredAndBewildered)

*A little too on-the-nose? I know, but I can‘t help it. “Bewitched” was my absolute favorite show when I was very young. I even remember thinking that Ella Fitzgerald sang this song because of the tv show. Ah, such is youth....
But the tagged book is the first of the “Bewitched by Chocolate” series, and I will be reviewing the book for the cozy prompt from Booked2019.

Leftcoastzen So cool , loved this show. 6mo
Cathythoughts Doesn‘t this man here look a tiny bit like Jim Carey ???? 6mo
Cinfhen I LOVED Bewitched too ✨💫✨ 6mo

CarolynM I was a fan too. I used to try so hard to twitch my nose😂 6mo
BooknerdsLife Oh I love Bewitched so much too!!! 😍😍 6mo
rohit-sawant Haven't seen the show but love the Ella Fitzgerald version so much! 💜 6mo
gradcat @Cathythoughts He DOES look like Jim Carrey! You‘re absolutely right—I never noticed that before. The photo is of Dick York, who only played one season; thereafter, the role of Darren Stephens was played by Dick Sargent. I‘m sure that‘s much more than you wanted to know about “Bewitched.” 😂 6mo
gradcat @Leftcoastzen @Cinfhen @BooknerdsLife Me, too. I sometimes watch it in reruns on tv, but it‘s as if I watched every show—I remember all of them! And @CarolynM I did exactly the same thing with my 👃🏼! 6mo
gradcat @rohit-sawant Omigod, me too! She was a queen! I had the luxury of seeing her in a small venue when she was accompanied by Joe Pass (another of my musical heroes) on guitar—fabulous! 6mo

"And will you rent our ancient love asunder
To join with men in scorning your poor friend?
It is not friendly, 'tis not maidenly."

I'm rescuing "maidenly" & turning this into a #spinsterlit rallying cry ? I know it's because everyone is #BewitchedBotheredAndBewildered & it's a misunderstanding, but I love Helena so much for saying this to Hermia! #ShakespeareReadAlong #MayMovieMagic @rohit-sawant @Cinfhen @merelybookish

Manymelodies The more I learn of the argument that Shakespeare was a woman, and the more I read and understand the texts, the more convinced I am it's true!! Perfect example right here. 6mo
batsy @rohit-sawant @saresmoore 😁❤️ 6mo
batsy @Manymelodies I read an article recently about it that @erzascarletbookgasm shared and I'm very intrigued by the possibility 🙂 6mo
readordierachel Yes to all of this! 👍🏼 6mo
merelybookish Excellent! Wouldn't it be a great ending if Hermia and Helena ditched the guys and lived happily ever after, together or apart! (Interested in writing some fanfic? 😆) 6mo
Manymelodies @batsy yes. That was the one I read. The list of heroines, and their perspectives, are so quintessentially feminine. The possibility resonated at a deep level. 😊 6mo
batsy @merelybookish A #spinsterlit fanfic take on Shakespeare is a dream genre 😂 6mo
GatheringBooks ooooh! nicely done! 💕📚🧚🏼‍♀️ 6mo
