Playing catch up on #90sinJuly:
Heartless because I can't help think of poor Catherine and the possible #heartshapedbox where her heart lives, Still Alice for both #myownworstenemy and #beautifulstranger
Lastly, #myhero and #shero Shonda Rhimes and her book, Year of Yes! Her incredible writing and the inclusion of multifaceted characters represented by POC in all of her shows have changed my life and I love her for it!

EchoLogical I'm going to have to give Still Alice it's own post at some point and explain why those hashtags apply. I ran out of characters. Lol 2y
Cinfhen Love all 3 choices😍I read Still Alice, excellent book & fabulous choice ✅✅✅ 2y
EchoLogical @Cinfhen I felt really clever for using that one. Lol. Have you seen the movie? 2y
Cinfhen No, I haven't seen movie. I should though, right??? 2y
EchoLogical @Cinfhen I haven't either! I was about to ask you if it did the book justice. Lol 2y

The Stranger | Harlan Coben
post image

Due to crazy wedding stuff this week I'm playing #90sinJuly #catchup so let's go left to right!

Day 7: Not a book, but I just couldn't think of a better #Wannabe than Mr. D
Day 8: Might not really be a #HeartShapedBox but I think it works
Day 9: #MyOwnWorstEnemy I think Nick really was his in the long run
Day 10: I'm not really sure if he is a #BeautifulStranger or not, but definitely strange

@Cinfhen @Robothugs

Cinfhen Well done 😍👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2y
Robothugs 👆🏻 Echoing @Cinfhen 2y

#90sInJuly #day8 #HeartShapedBox I would buy Jean-Claude a heart-shaped coffin & the happily spend eternity in it with him! It's not just the black curls, or those blue blue eyes, nor the snazzy clothes & the charisma. It's all of it combined , then throw in the French accent. 100s of years spent in a box seems a small price to pay. Sorry for the lateness, it's been a difficult two days.

Robothugs Hehe ☺️ Don't be sorry, lovely!! I hope it's better for you today. 2y
Cinfhen Sorry you had some rough days😕glad you're back ❤️ 2y

The Brothers K | David James Duncan
post image

The #heartshapedbox I own was a gift from a friend when my grandma died.

My grandma loved baseball more than anyone else I know. Her cousin was Ty Cobb so I think it was in her genes (although she was a lovely person, unlike Cobb). Sometimes I would mischievously call her when I knew the Mariners were playing to see how long I could keep her on the phone.

The Brothers K is a brilliant story of #family and baseball; one she would have loved.

Cinfhen Such a great story and beautiful keepsake 💝thanks for sharing 😍 2y

The Tell-tale Heart | Edgar Allan Poe

Maybe if the narrator in "The Tell-Tale Heart" had had a #HeartShapedBox, he wouldn't have had so many problems. #90sInJuly

Robothugs Ooh good one! 2y
Crystallinegirl I totally considered breaking out Poe for this one, lol! But then I realized I had an actual Heart-shaped box and went from there instead. LOVE the Daria clip. 2y
batsy I love Daria 😁 2y

Heartburn | Nora Ephron

#90sinJuly #HeartShapedBox Yeah, I wasn't quite sure where to go with this one so I just decided to pick books I've read with ❤️in the title. I suppose I could have found a few 'box' titled books too. ? I remember the video for this song freaked me out a bit. Reminds me of "Poppies. Poppies. Poppies will put them to sleep... " ?

Robothugs 😂😂 Well now I won't get that scene out of my head! 2y
britt_brooke I loved Heartburn! 2y
DebinHawaii @Robothugs My pleasure! 🤣 2y
DebinHawaii @britt_brooke It was good! 📚👍 2y

According to Kurt Cobain, supposedly #HeartShapedBox was inspired by a story about children with cancer (though others claim it's about Courtney Love). Either way, the song was always ruined for me with the whole "eat your cancer" line. #90sInJuly

PS. I was not a fan of the casting for Gus in the movie. I didn't picture him as that dude at all. He was too much of a goofball for me. ??‍♀️

Jas16 Agreed. It was bad casting. 2y
stargazerblue49 I always thought it was awkward that they then went on to play siblings in the Divergent movies. 2y
Cinfhen Did not know that little nugget of wisdom 😉thanks @britt_brooke and I agree, poor casting 😕 2y

Robothugs 🤷🏻‍♀️ That book, though. 2y
britt_brooke @Robothugs Loved the book so much!! 💚💚 2y
britt_brooke @stargazerblue49 Ha! I didn't know that. 2y
britt_brooke @Jas16 @Cinfhen I'm not sure who I would've chosen but he just didn't seem right. 2y
Cortg He was my biggest complaint about the movie, kinda ruined it for me. The book was fabulous though! 2y
Robothugs He didn't exhibit the qualities that the character did in the book. However, @stargazerblue49 I can totally see them as siblings. That was a good casting call. 2y
britt_brooke @Cortg I loved the book, too. So sad, but also so happy in a way. Fantastic. 💚 2y
britt_brooke @Robothugs You nailed it. 2y
