#Iheardarumor that my #crush Eugenides, the Thief, is marrying his #crush. I'm a bit jealous 😒 so I have not been able to read the tagged book. Sometimes I have to take a break from a series and let my emotions calm. 😍

Chasing Sunsets: A Novel | Karen Kingsbury

#AugustGrrl #day18 #IHeardARumor I heard a rumour that tonight's sunset over Sydney would be spectacular, so I just had to go out and take a photo of it! I love sunsets on days when there's just enough gray cloud in the sky to reflect the suns colour. #sunsetsofsydney #aussieskycolours

The Imaginary | A.F. Harrold
post image

Rudger is Amanda's imaginary friend. Nobody else can see Rudger - until the sinister Mr Bunting arrives at Amanda's door. Mr Bunting hunts imaginaries. Rumour says that he eats them. In the veins of Gaiman's Coraline and Roald Dahl's The Witches, this is great story about friendship for middle graders.

Pruzy The synopsis also reminds me of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which (full disclosure) I've only seen the move of. 2y

Jess_Read_This This is so interesting! I've never heard this before. 😄 2y
Cinfhen Loved this nugget of information 🤓🙂 2y
Leftcoastzen All the cross pollination of cultures is always fascinating! 2y
batsy @Leftcoastzen Yes! This book is enthusiastic about that cross pollination and is constantly interrogating the idea of food "authenticity" 2y
Leftcoastzen @batsy read this book yrs ago , most fascinating part was often cooks would sacrifice authenticity to be more marketable in a particular market/country 2y
batsy @Leftcoastzen Yes, it's really funny to think about, because the more marketable improvised version becomes a hit back in the "home" country, too. I have not read that, looks interesting! The author of Curry recommends this as a good food history type book 2y
ValerieAndBooks Looks interesting. The other night daughter and I ate at a vegetarian Indian restaurant that had just opened. I don't know enough to say how much of it was authentic but it certainly was delicious! 2y
batsy @ValerieAndBooks Haha, that's all that matters! ? The author makes a point about how people determine authenticity by comparing dishes to how it was prepared at home, but even "home-cooked" probably got to that point through improvisation and outside influences. It's a fun read :) 2y
Lindy I am definitely going to read this. I have never met a vegetarian South Asian meal that I didn't like. Rice with Punjabi style greens and red lentil dhal are my comfort foods. 2y
batsy @Lindy Dhal is essential ❤️This books uses curry as a starting point but it's more of an essay on curry as cultural signifier, and less about food as such. But it's a short, sharp read! 2y
Lindy @batsy My library has a copy on order and I've placed a hold against it. 👍 2y

I heard a rumor you're harboring a woman aboard your privateer ship!

Psssst.. #IHeardARumor Queen Victoria secretly married her uncouth, arrogant and heavy-drinking Highland ghillie, John Brown. And bore him a child. #AugustGrrrl

Sordid rumor aside, my #FolioFriday was marked with this lovely addition to my collection. A fascinating woman in a fascinating time period.

Although I wasn't crazy about this book it fits in to today's #augustgrrrl prompt #iheardarumor. Farshad is nicknamed "terror boy" because of a nasty rumor started by kids in his class. @Cinfhen
