Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen
post image

My audiobook for this #24in48 is “Sense and Sensibility” by Jane Austen (also fulfilling my #JaneAustenJuly challenge). This is my second time reading S&S but my first time listening to it as an audiobook. I love how many classics I can find as audiobooks on YouTube thanks to Librevox!

The Phantom of the Opera | Gaston Leroux

#colormepretty day 20! I really love the #orange accents on this copy of one of my favorite books!

megzlynn This is one of my favorites as well! It bothers me that my friends who‘ve only watched the movie/play don‘t realize his name is Erik though. 😂 16h
wideeyedreader @megzlynn I haven‘t noticed that, but I don‘t know many people who like Phantom as much as I do! 15h

1. P&P.
2. After the Kiera Knightley film version came out.
3. MacFayden!
4. Elinor Dashwood. Or was it Eleanor Thompson 🤣
5. Captain Wentworth
6. Willoughby and maybe Colonel Brandon (he‘s a little villainy when he dresses as Snape!) 🧙‍♂️
7. Thompson‘s S&S. Perfectly captures the soul of the characters and the heart of the story!

Little Women, Good Wives | Louisa May Alcott

My parents would tell me that I was born in the wrong era because of my love for classics and the old Hollywood stars Jimmy Stewart and Katherine Hepburn. I have Hepburn's Jo from the 30s, June Allyson's Jo from the 50s with Elizabeth Taylor as Amy, the 70s version with Meredith Baxter, and the 90s with Wynona Ryder. My favorite has always been Hepburn.

Until tonight. I have betrayed her. This version was completely heart-rending and joyous. 😍

Butterfinger Angela Lansbury was brilliant and so funny as Aunt March. Plus, Uma Thurston's and Ethan Hawke's daughter Maya Hawke was very believable as the impulsive and tom-boyish Jo. I could gush on and on. Well done Masterpiece Theatre!!❤️ 1d

The Great Gatsby | Francis Scott Fitzgerald

I feel like whenever someone who has read The Great Gatsby mentions it, they have really strong feelings about it. They either love it or they hate it and there is no in between. How about you? If you‘ve read this book, how do you feel about it? #1920s #letsflyjuly @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

Liatrek I was not a fan of this book. I really couldn‘t see what the hype was about I didn‘t like any of the characters. 1d
OriginalCyn620 This was my pick too for this prompt! I liked it! 😊❤️ 1d

wordslinger42 I really loved this when I first read it, but that was several years ago, so I'd be interested in re-reading it to see if I feel the same way! 1d
Billypar Love it 👍👀🌁🍸🚦🌻 1d
CaliforniaCay Hated it when I read it in highschool, re-read it after I watched the movie (the newer one) and loved it. The characters are horribly shallow but it is well written 👍🏾👍🏾 1d
Bookwormjillk I love it. In my top 5 for sure. 1d
Butterflyamore @CaliforniaCay I definitely agree that they are extremely shallow! So many interesting things taking place in the book but really no one to root for! I love the newer movie, too. 1d
Palimpsest I read it in high school in the 90s and again before the 2013 movie release. I love it. I love the writing, but I did wonder what he saw in Daisy the second time around, yet I think that was part of the point. Gatsby‘s vision was mostly a beautiful dream. 1d
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick It was required reading in high school and I remember that I liked it but I should give it a reread to see if I still enjoy it. 1d
Scochrane26 I read it twice in high school & want to re-read because I‘m not sure I would still like it now. 1d
Lizzybennetgirl The first time I read it I liked it and thought it was romantic. The second time I realized how delusional Gatsby and Daisy were. Then I thought it was really sad 😢. The entire premise of their romance (and the American dream) was based on something that wasn‘t even real. (edited) 4h

My mum and I had both a horrible week. For different reasons but in the end it all sucks. So we decided, we need the movie with 'that' scene 😍😍😍 @sprainedbrain 😊☺️

squirrelbrain Hope it makes you both feel a bit better.... 2d
julesG Hope you get to relax at the weekend. Enjoy the film. There is one scene towards the end of the film that I can never watch again without giggling - why oh why did I have to watch the interview with the director? 2d
