#MOvember #catchup
How do you #ExpressYourself ? I consider cooking my favorite form of expression. When I‘ve had a long, tiring week, a little #audiosouping time with a fun & funny book, then taking pictures of it looking pretty, eating the result of my labors & posting it on my blog are my relaxation & creative expression. This is the beginnings of Spinach, Coconut & Chickpea Fish Stew from a cookbook I‘m reviewing. Finished pics coming later.

Sace Looks delicious! 2y
Tamra I‘ll second that. 👍🏾 2y
Cinfhen Fantastic, Deb!! Truly an art form ♥️ 2y

The two characters make their journey through emotions, fears, past and future.
Love this series especially this book.
#MOvember. #expressyourself

Cinfhen 🎶You don't need diamond rings or eighteen karat gold
Fancy cars that go very fast, you know they never last no, no
What you need is a big strong hand
To lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you 'til you can't come down🎶
writerlibrarian @Cinfhen How much do I love this month music 🎶 challenge.. this much 😍😍 2y
Cinfhen Hahahahah😘😘 2y

David and Sydney Mitford raised their 6 daughters and one son with an emphasis on being unique and always appreciated their differences. And were they ever different! This account of their lives includes scandal, political intrigue, and a whole lot of sibling rivalry.

Leftcoastzen I want to read this! Love Decca. 2y
Cinfhen #FridayFlowers 😍I know lots of Littens love reading about the Mitford‘s, I haven‘t read anything yet😔 2y
Simona @cinfhen Definitely worthy to try❣️It‘s hard to believe how extraordinary their lives were. 2y
Reviewsbylola Such a fascinating family. 2y

Money | Martin Amis
post image

#expressyourself #MOvember
Apparently John Self expresses himself by making a movie about money, while "living money, talking money, and spending money on all the excesses 20th-century culture has to offer: drink, dope, sex, fast food, and love."
On my TBR shelf but from that description...sounds like a terrible novel! On the other hand, Amis hasn't let me down yet, and this is probably his most famous, so I can't not read it ?‍♂️

Leftcoastzen I haven‘t read that one either. He‘s excellent though. 2y
BarbaraBB I had a hard time finishing this one. 2y
batsy Read it for a uni class maaaany years ago and thoroughly enjoyed reading about a character I absolutely loathed, so I'm not sure what that says about me 😅 2y

Cinfhen Some books just aren‘t for me....this is probably one of them 😬 2y
Billypar @Leftcoastzen Yeah, he's a favorite of mine- it's been awhile since I read one of his though. 2y
Billypar @BarbaraBB @batsy @Cinfhen I was more attracted to this kind of narrative in college- @batsy like you mentioned, I hated the characters like Self, but I think I hoped they'd have a quiet epiphany by the end or something like that. 2y
Liz_M I loved this book! As an added incentive some of it takes place in the seedy NYC of yesteryear. 😁 2y
Billypar @Liz_M Good to hear! Seedy NYC is so interesting to see in old books and films - hard to believe the change in just a few decades. 2y

DAY 8 #ExpressYourself | For this prompt, I had to go with some of the best memoirs I‘ve read this year. I love reading about other people‘s experiences. These folks put themselves out there, and for that, I‘m grateful.


ljuliel Did you have a favorite out of these ? 2y
DrexEdit Never Stop Walking looks interesting! 2y
lele1432 Lol I've gotta read Gross Anatomy. 2y

Hooked_on_books Oh yeah, you‘ve got some good ones on here! 2y
britt_brooke @ljuliel Hmmm, that‘s tough. A few were 5 stars, but for totally different reasons: Gross Anatomy, Becoming, Life Will be the Death of Me, All Over but the Shoutin‘. 2y
britt_brooke @DrexEdit It‘s really interesting and different. And great on audio, if you like to listen. (edited) 2y
britt_brooke @lele1432 It‘s so funny, but also just a really fantastic read! 2y

Pride and Prejudice | Austen Jane

“Don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know, you've got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you'll know your love is real
You‘ve got to make him express himself”

And did Lizzie make Darcy work hard for her love!

#Movember @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Of course Madonna was channeling some JANE Austen 😜 2y

#expressyourself - this book make me mad, sad, frustrated, angry, disappointed (in society) and annoyed and a million similar feelings. But I feel I owe it to Chanel to plough on.
