@Susanita thanks for the tag! #litsylearn
1. I have 2 brothers. I collect Funko POPS. I have 4 tattoos. 🤔
2. I‘ll just say it...I hated The Goldfinch! 😠
3. I met the author of the tagged book, which is a mashup of Pride & Prejudice and Frankenstein, two of my faves. He also teaches at my alma mater, though I didn‘t have him as a teacher when I was there. 😊
4. I guess too cold...that way, I can pile on layers and bury myself under blankets! 🥶

Judybskt I‘m guessing you don‘t have 4 tattoos? 5d
Alora Hello!! Thank you for playing! 💙💙 5d
Alora I‘m going to guess the lie is that you have 4 tattoos?! 5d

Crazeedi I hated goldfinch too! That's the book I put for number 2!! 5d
OriginalCyn620 @alora @Judybskt Nope! I do have 4 tattoos! The lie is that I have 2 brothers. I‘m actually an only child. 5d
MallenNC It‘s not fair for me to guess on that first one! 5d
Alora Ohhh me too! 😊 5d
OriginalCyn620 @MallenNC Clearly, this was rhetorical for you. You know all my sh!t! 🤣 5d

This book is fabulous! I love how it brings together some many other books & characters in such a perfect way! Especially enjoy the style of writing where the characters add their notes and observations in the margins as it were!

While listening to my audiobook and cooking supper, I look out the window to see this.

Nope. No thank you. Who do I speak to about returns or exchanges? #IWantFallBack

Frankissstein: A Love Story | Jeanette Winterson

Pickpick

My first Winterson and I thoroughly enjoyed it. She is so adept with novels and themes that she can play with structure and sentences and make UP become DOWN like some kind of literary juggler. And all the while I‘m watching the things in her hands, applauding myself when I recognise spinning tea kettles and toasters.
All of which is to say that Winterson plays with the novel Frankenstein and the life of Mary Shelley - a subject I love ⬇️

Centique She creates a kind of mirror image of the stories and themes in the near future, broadening them to encompass AI, transgender and non binary states of being, intellect versus body versus soul. It‘s a spinning top of a book that will make you breathless but may also leave you with unanswered questions. 😍 (edited) 2w
JennyM Great review - I‘m stacking! 2w
Moray_Reads I saw Winterson at the Edinburgh Book Festival and she sort of performed some sections of the books using film and sound, recreating some of the conversations and it was brilliant 2w

I would lie silent and still, like a corpse, as he studied me. His careful, delicate hands explored all the bones and tendons, the muscles and tracings of veins that make up a person. “But where is Elizabeth?” he would ask, his ear against my heart. “Which part makes you?” I had no answer, and neither did he.
