#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.

Cinfhen Creepy!! 12mo
vivastory Sounds good. I love Steampunk! 12mo

"When Randolph Carter was thirty he lost the key of the gate of dreams."

"People are almost always safe from ghosts and ghouls and the living dead in daylight, and they're usually safe from them at night if they're with others, but when a person is alone in the dark, all bets are off."

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
ravenlee My college roommate freshman year moved in with a music dictionary and this book. Over the whole year I saw her read about ten pages. But Oprah told her to eead it so she tried! 13mo
DivineDiana @ravenlee I‘m glad she tried! I think Oprah has done a magnificent job of encouraging people to read! 💗 13mo
vivastory Haven't read this one. Sounds good though! 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.)
