Ran my errands & settling in to finish up these two books in the month of March. (I've got about 13 hours to midnight here!) What else does this (gray & rainy) Saturday before Easter hold? It includes green juice to counter the effects of a Russell Stover Marshmallow Egg (in honor of my mom who loved them💙) & lavender-hued toes.

Can purple toes make someone #FallAtYourFeet ? (I'm sorry but I'm catching up on #MarchIntoOz & I had to be lame!) 💜

Cinfhen I love that u made it work 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2y

I could not put this book down. Rachel Jeffs tells her story as one of the 53 children of Warren Jeffs,the leader of the FLDS cult. The abuse she suffered at the hand of her father was hard to understand and hard to read. She was ostracized, imprisoned, and separated from her children for months on end until she finally got the courage to leave. Shockingly, Warren Jeffs still rules his people from behind bars. #fallatyourfeet #marchintooz

Cinfhen Sounds fascinating 2y
britt_brooke This was really good. I‘ve read a few FLDS memoirs, but this one coming from Jeffs‘s own daughter was a different take. I applaud her for telling her story. 2y
FantasyChick This book was amazing! I am fascinated by these cult books as it is but reading about it from Jeffs' daughter was incredible. Another I'm looking forward to is 2y

Mdargusch I agree with bit of you. So shocking a father treated a daughter that way and then she was so brave to tell the story. @britt_brooke and @FantasyChick 2y
Mdargusch You really have to @Lcsmcat 2y
jillrhudy Have you tried? 2y

The Piano Teacher | Elfriede Jelinek, Joachim Neugroschel

"The daughter doesn't yet know whether she will commit murder or throw herself at the man's feet and kiss them." #fallatyourfeet
When it comes to this novel I can never make up my mind, the characters are a dizzying whirl of contradictions. The fragile line drawn between love and hate throughout the text becomes part of my response as a reader. No one gets off lightly under Jelinek's shrewd gaze.

It‘s not often that one is lucky enough to have 2 perfectly charming, fun, kind, brilliant, sexy men #fallatyourfeet and profess their undying love for you and force you to choose between them 🙄 BUT if you can suspend your disbelief for just a bit, this fluffy read is actually kind of fun! I can‘t even belief I enjoyed it, but I did... miracles can happen ✨

Reggie Your picks always catch my eye..... cause they are a rare breed. Lol (edited) 2y
hes7 I‘m planning to read this one for the challenge, too. Glad you liked it! 2y
JessieReadsInBK I was hesitant at first too, but loved it. Haven‘t looked at cinnamon rolls the same since! 2y
Reviewsbylola I am shocked. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 @Reggie 2y
emilyhaldi Ha! @Reggie I can be a bit fickle when it comes to my reading.. I love to pan the hell out of a book sometimes! 😆 2y

Melissa_J While The Sunne in Splendour and When Christ and His Saints Slept are my two favourite Penman books, this trilogy is definitely my favourite group of her books. 2y
TrishB @Cinfhen he has impeccable taste 😁 (edited) 2y
TrishB @Melissa_J I love them all - there‘s just a special place in my heart for this trilogy! 2y
TrishB @Cathythoughts probably 👍🏻 I may have mentioned them before 😁 2y
TrishB @Wanderingwithwords it‘s lovely isn‘t it 💜 2y
DGRachel I love these so much. Hmm...a reread may be in order soon. 🤔 2y
TrishB @DGRachel they are awesome aren‘t they 😁 very worthy of a re-read! 2y

#MarchIntoOz #fallatyourfeet In this short novel , the parents separate & then re unite- we hear from them. And also we hear from their 2 children , how the their parents breakup affected them. Short and brilliant ... set in Rome , as far as I remember. ( I think there was talk that this author is married to Elena Ferrante IRL in real life 😉- 🤷🏻‍♀️

Cinfhen I love this cover 😍 2y
Cathythoughts @Cinfhen it‘s a good cover 👍🏻. It saved the day for me with this prompt 😬 2y

Pride and Prejudice | Jane Austen

#MarchIntoOz #day30 #FallAtYourFeet This is my favourite song from my favourite Aussie band. Formed from the ashes of Split Enz, the combination of Neil Finns songwriting & singing, Paul Hester on drums & Nick Seymour on guitar made magic happen, every song is gorgeous listening.I‘m not a huge fan of romances,Jane Austen is one of the few I have on my shelves. If I was gonna fall at the feet of any literary male, Mr Darcy would be my first choice.

Dragon Mr Darcy 💕🎩 2y

Alan Marshall contracted polio as a child in the first decade of the 20th century and walked on crutches ever after, but never let that stop him as covered in his autobiography I Can Jump Puddles. This is a novel about the workers in a shoe factory in the 1920's.

Cinfhen Need to share this with my dad, he was a litigator who fought vs the drug manufacturers who knew the polio vaccine was potentially harmful 🤓 2y
DivineDiana @Cinfhen So interesting! I‘m sure he has stories to tell! 2y
Cinfhen My brother is helping my dad write a screenplay @DivineDiana Maybe one day you‘ll see the movie ‼️ 2y
DivineDiana @Cinfhen Now that‘s exciting! 👏🏻🤞👏🏻 2y
