#CellBlockTango #MusicalNewYear

I read A Lesson Before Dying over 20 years ago and loved it so much I quickly read almost everything else by Ernest Gaines. I hate to admit I don‘t remember much other than the man on death row. It was so good I purchased a copy at a library book sale recently to re-read even though I don‘t usually re-read things.

Cinfhen I‘ve also meant to read this! Thanks for the reminder 😊 12mo

This is not a cell block I would want to tango in. This series is awesome about a special prison for teens that is more Steampunk/horror than I ever expected based on the hard cover cover. (This is the paperback)

This is a #cellblocktango I should really finish.

kristincatastrophic I love this book. I read it in high school not long after it came out amd it blew my mind. One of the very first "adult" books I ever read. Sorry, I couldn't help but share that 13mo
Crazeedi @kristincatastrophic I remember the first *adult* book I read too 13mo
DivineDiana @gradcat 👍🏻😉😀 13mo
DivineDiana @kristincatastrophic It certainly is a memorable read! Thanks for sharing! 🙂 13mo

Cinfhen This is an excellent book @vivastory ‼️‼️‼️ definitely read it xx Cindy & Oprah BOTH give it their stamp of approval 😊 13mo

Not read but blurb sounds like an unpleasant read. It paints a very vivid, mad, sickening picture of real life behind one of Bali‘s most notorious prisons. “...exposes the jail's role in supplying high-grade drugs to the outside, the gang that rules the jail through terror, the corruption that means anything is for sale, and the squalor and misery endured by prisoners.” A #cellblocktango that we cannot possibly imagine.

vivastory This one sounds crazy! 13mo
Cinfhen Nightmare scenario 😱😱😱but probably a fascinating read 13mo

A timely question from Angela Y. Davis. Another from the tbr that I need to read sooner rather than later. (I appreciate that these prompts are reintroducing me to all the books on my own shelves.)
